I don't own one, but I have borrowed a friends to use. They don't quite feel right to me... different weight obviously and balance. I understand their niche perfectly well, for commuters I think they are probably fantastic. But for "tooling" around town I'd rather stick to my cruiser. From my perspective it's all personal opinion. If you're thinking about getting one, try it out at the shop, see if you like the feel. If not, stick with a traditional bike.
