commented on Seattle's Bike Share Program Is Doing "Pretty Well" Six Months After Launch
I dig using Pronto, but I don't recommend them for hills of any size. The bikes are *heavy*. Also, don't ride away from the station immediately after taking one - check to make sure the breaks and gears work first, so if you get a dud, you can switch it out. I had this happen to me a couple of times - happily, when you dock a bike, you can press a button to notify them that it needs repair, and they won't allow it to be loaned out until the issue is fixed.
