It is quite interesting how many Danes ride Dutch "omafiets" (granny bikes). The second most popular brand is Raleigh there. Amazing country. Good I don't live there :)

Copenhagen. First four women ride the Dutch "omafiets".


Poles perceive themselves a young, bike-enthusiast nation and swept-back handlebars are hard to be found here.
I do find the combination of the higher position and the swept bar of my wife’s Kalkhoff Groove to be super comfy for short rides. It’s a bit more sit up n beg riding position and excellent for city riding. I’ve not tried it for considerable distance, a step through Dutch style bike isn’t my style lol!
I never get pins n needles in my hands on her bike, but I do find the steering less precise when turning compared to my flat bar
When putting Como bars on a Vado do all the brake and shifter lines reach, or do they have to be replaced?
It looks like you have a horn button on your handle bars. Is that a horn? Did you add it and what kind is it? Do tell.
Tied the 2 wires to the front headlight.
I had a doohickey mount for the handlebar to hang it, you can improvise with the ton of stuff available as to where you want to hang it from.
