Thanks, it just seemed counterintuitive, but obviously there's a whole set of physics I know nothing about at work here.

Wow, that looks like a lot of work, I had no idea you had that much control.

I never saw a unicycle with a spare tire before.

Nice solo ride tonight. 1 hour and 20 minutes of wooded bliss, so to speak.

You should take a minute to read the story of Major Taylor, the Worcester Whirlwind.

I know Marshall Taylor from sitting in an empty bike shop surrounded by industry pron.

I've heard them called "boneshakers" but they look more like ballsmashers.

They are hiding the assist motor in the frames of bikes now using tech developed to cheat at road racing. This promises to help get mountain bikes banned from multi-use tracks. Someone showed up with one for a group ride my retired buddy did. He was livid. It is a great advance for para-athletes and commuters, the rest of us should leave it be. :soapbox:

Yes, a horse of another color, and great opportunity for us old farts to get out. But cross breeding is trouble for everyone.

20 years ago the bike riders in Europe said WTF, we're a big percentage of people on the road, yet cars ignore bike lanes either as parking lots or speedways, and run over us with impunity. Well we're mad as hell and not going to take it any more. So they didn't.

Well shit, what did they do?

Did they just stop dying?

I wouldn't know how to begin to look something like that up.

yeaz i would definitely use a lectric bike to commute, except that 4 miles of the commute would be along serious death-causing roadways.

We've given up on road riding, between outright aggression, poor roads, and distracted driving the risk is too great.
