Sure! I like my bikes a bit more race position (i.e so a road bike equivalent). So a traditional “Dutch” bicycle* to me, with it’s sit-up — hence “sofa” — position to me seemed to me like driving a Volvo estate, traditionally safe, slow, practical and unexciting cars, when I’m used to riding fast light bikes.

I’ve since been to Amsterdam, and changed my mind. They are fun to ride, and a great city too. Only in Amsterdam mind! They’d be terribly impractical in London.
