I love this bike. And yes, with a bit of caution, I can get on the bike without further injuring myself. It actually has a step-through which would make it really easy, except I have a Center console attachment that fills it up, so it is a bit of a beast to get on. Anyways. I’m on exercise rest still while my back heals up- nothing more frustrating then losing my year+ daily exercise streak because of a thrown back.
