I bought mine when they first came out (2002?2003?) and had it for about a year. But, as Jerry says, it wasn't up to steep grades and I live right in the middle of a mountain range.

One day I came out of the library and a shy, reclusive woman who I'd seen now and then was staring at it. "It's so beautiful," she said. Later I learned she had bought a new Vino and it was stationed in her living room. She hadn't yet ridden it. I couple of years ago I saw her (as I said, she was seldom seen) and asked how she liked riding it. "Oh, I've never ridden it," she said.

I'm going to see if she still has it. Maybe buy it. However, she might consider it an object of art and a permanent living room fixture and refuse to part with it.
