A friend of the company is riding only pennyfarthing for years. We thought he just wanted to be fancy. We were wrong. He had back problems & said that pennyfarthing allows him to ride "ergonomically" correct.
One day we came across a bicycle with a "hammock"-like saddle called Pedersen. The rider's ergonomic position struck our mind. We were so excited to get one for our friend, but at the high price point we couldn't help but to think that many people with back problems would like to ride a bicycle but couldn't afford it. Virtue introduces Virtue Ortho, an upright position bicycle without the fancy "hammock" saddle, but look, even the elbows are in resting comfortable position!
