Thanks for all of the responses so far! I like the idea of padding the pedal hinge. I've actually been riding around in my office on carpet. There's plenty of cubical walls to hold onto when I get wobbly. Plus, all of my coworkers are getting a kick out of trying to ride it
My InMotion V8 just got delivered yesterday, and I've been able to get two practice sessions in so far! I'm slowly getting the hang of it and am trying to catch the wheel when I lose my balance, but I've managed to scratch up the bottom of the pedals and pedal hinge. What are you guys using to pad your wheels, and where are you placing them? Photos would be great!
