Your feet are out front, your legs are not all scrunched up underneath you, which causes serious leg cramps for me. There are no pressure points on this bike. I hope someone sells a riders backrest for it. I think Protac is pretty much out of business. I would strap something to the back part of the seat to lean against before buying a $500 seat with a built in backrest. With back support, it would be just like riding an easy chair down the road. A perfect solo touring bike.
Feet forward with all your weight on your lower back certainly NOT the most comfortable or optimal position for control.
