    What is the minimum protection you wear?

    Im going with the thinking of, the more kitted out you are with saftey gear, the more dangerous you look and the more attention you draw to yourself. No saftey gear and people may think you are just riding a gimmick toy and not a dangerous unpredictable speed machine. I know by law that I am not permitted to ride my ecu on public roads and areas, having said that I’ve passed multiple police officers on the road in cars and on the pavement on foot and not one person has stopped me. Infact ive had police cars give way to me in normal traffic situations as if I were a car. I can only speculate to the reactions if i were kitted out

    Two years and 600km and im ashamed to admit that ive yet to buy saftey gear. Its always been on my to do list. I’m well aware of the risk im taking, and i know it may upset some people, but kitting yourself out in body armour kind of gives off an agresive look. Especially if you are in pedestrianised areas
  4. Your wife is beautiful, and she shows an interest in the wheel... does she have any like minded single friends? Sisters?

    Thoughts as A beginner

    Couldn’t agree more. I love his style, just so cool, relaxed and loose. I no doubt look like a big stiff, awkward twat in comparison.

    I had an accident

    Emm. Respect the beeps? They are there for a reason. Im guessing it just cut out because the demand was greater than the supply. I think its normal behaviour. Like yourself ive turned off my alarms, only difference is when i hear the first beep i let off a bit.

    EUC oscillation insight

    I get the wobbles when braking from a fast speed. I think in my case its to do with my feet being too far forward on the pedals.

    Calibration angle — how do you ride?

    Yeah, but did you adjust your pedal angle to compensate for the tilt? I think that its self is the issue. So the tilt back actually levels the pedals

    Calibration angle — how do you ride?

    I believe gotway wheels are programmable this way.

    “ i hate the squealing sound the low pad wear tab makes when i step on the brakes, so I don’t use them no more “

    “ I hate the beeping tone my car makes when I don’t wear a seatbelt so i disconnected the speaker. “

    Foot position on your pedals

    I can ride for a good 40 or so minutes depending on where my feet are positioned. Its just the further back my feet are the more i have to use my toes for pressure, hence the calf strain. I guess one could call it exorcise

    The Photo Thread

    Kirkcaldy... no wonder they wanted to leave. My parents uprooted and moved the family to Vancouver Island as a child. We lasted 6 years , then my dad made the call to move us back. Image is an artist’s impression

    Foot position on your pedals

    Very imformative. Im used to just planting my feet and keeping in the same position untill i stop and get back on, usually i can’t get the exact same position and it feels better or worse to ride. The further forward i put my feet the easier it is on my calf’s and perhaps i can ride a bit smoother at speed, but it feels unusual to me
