    Looks like the same angle as the Tesla pedals. I went through exactly what you're going through. I didn't like how it was forcing my ankles in towards the body of the unicycle but trust me its just a matter of time before you get used to it.. might not be as comfortable for slow cruising but it gives you more stability and agility.

    Yuuuuup. Same tire from my ACM. Gotta say tho the Tesla did not feel very stable to me in the beginning, but over time you learn the proper foot placement and rising stance and after many more hours of riding you even develop a set of new muscles that make you a Tesla racer. Once you've conquered riding a stock Tesla then you can put a 2.5" tire on it and start the learning process again.

    Also true. Ive been riding around in the city for so long that i know all the humps n bumps by heart. So im usually flying by using the bike lanes doing 18-22mph. Occasionally ill get on the sidewalk and start swerving between trees and posts . The tesla is fun for pretty much any type of riding. Not to mention if you ever need a shot of adrenaline you can just take it over 25mph and see how long you can last

    Once again you make a good point.. I have to agree with you Marty. Tesla's range depends on how much fun you want to have on the way to your destination.. about 35 miles of fun is guaranteed till the annoying beeping begins. Although I do enjoy carving left and right at slow speeds on the sidewalk.. so im still confident i can get 60 miles out of it if i wanted to.

    Im 155lbs and i will get 60 miles out of my wheel! You guys just sit back and watch me make history and prove @Marty Backe wrong

    67 miles.. not bad for my first weekend with the tesla. Did 28 miles with 51% battery left. I think i can get another 32 miles out of it if i put it back in soft mode and stop racing with cars The numbers dont lie Marty. Unless the app is lying

    @Marty Backe we can start at Griffith park and ride through hollywood>west hollywood>beverly hills> santa monica<back to Griffith park

    OK Marty.. challenge accepted! I dont want to take your whole paycheck though. I feel bad. Maybe ill just take your new ACM . I was going to say YES to your Griffith Park proposal but now I've got a bet to win. Im thinking about doing a round trip to santa monica and back to glendale.. anybody want to join me for the ride? Marty might ask for witnesses.

    butttt... i still believe a slightly wider tire would make the tesla better. Its got enough power and acceleration, I dont see why you would wanna go skinnier? @Meng Yang I wouldn't mind sacrificing a couple mph top speed for some stability. It still feels just a tad too twitchy when you take it over 20mph. Speaking of which,.. It drains the battery a LOTT faster when you ride it at speeds over 20mph. I was keeping it below that for the last 3 days and im confident i can get over 60miles range if i keep it below 20mph.

    Status update; Im completely in love with the tesla. Now every time i ride it and take it over 20mph im yelling out WHAT A MACHINEEEE (in my head. lol) Btw I did try Soft mode for a day but then changed it back to Normal. Just took me time to learn how to control the wheel and it kinda forced me to change my riding stance too. You can corner so fast with this thing its amazing. I feel like im on a motorcycle. Tesla = WINNING Another great call by @Marty Backe. Thanks pal
