  1. Can you plan one for around July 4th to July 7th? I'll be up for a reunion and I'm bringing my wheel. Just moved down from the Provo area. I've been riding daily since June also. I wish I had known about these while I was in Utah.
  2. I've sat on my 14D also. That's what led to this.
  3. I only weigh 140 lbs and only sit on well known well paved roads. I figure that I'm light enough that it won't break. I avoid any and all bumps when seated. I'll work on the video today. Check the Facebook page for a pic of the seat.
  4. I'll post a video on my youtube channel about it soon. but in the meantime buy a pack of floor mats for lifting weights. https://photos.app.goo.gl/7t5VLWN9CLwhWznJ6 here is a vid from my ride to work today
  5. I've been riding my 18XL seated for about a month now and i'd like to do a range test standing vs. sitting and see the differences. The problem is finding a place to ride seated and finding the will to stay standing. Sitting is so relaxing.
  6. All my falls have been while going less than 3 mph... Too steep + loose dirt Too slow + Big rock
  7. It tilts forward for me because I'm learning forward. And I do prefer the soft and medium because I can point the head light down so I can see
  8. He is about to buy a wheel if i'm not mistaken
  9. From here (Seattle law) I know you are not a bike but the principle is the same: use your own discretion and be courteous to those slower than you. Section 11.44.120 RIDING ON A SIDEWALK OR PUBLIC PATH. Every person operating a bicycle upon any sidewalk or public path shall operate the same in a careful and prudent manner and a rate of speed no greater than is reasonable and proper under the conditions existing at the point of operation, taking into account the amount and character of pedestrian traffic, grade and width of sidewalk or public path, and condition of surface, and shall obey all traffic control devices. Every person operating a bicycle upon a sidewalk or public path shall yield the right-of-way to any pedestrian thereon, and shall give an audible signal before overtaking and passing any pedestrian.
  10. In San Diego it is illegal for any wheeled vehicle to be on sidewalks with store fronts. Including highly populated areas like boardwalks. You can thank all the idiots on bird scooters for that law. The way I see it, if you are going faster than jogging speed, you should be on the street. Side walk is too narrow to maneuver if someone pops out from a blind corner. "But I'm too slow for the street" you say. I respond with get a faster wheel. BTW most bikers go 16 mph when on the street. Streets are made for fast things and sidewalks are made for walking. Not trying to be rude just trying to clear up the "grey" area.
  11. Sometimes when I am going fast up a hill and hit a crack in the road, my KS wheels dip forward dramatically then level out again in the blink of an eye. Never fallen but it has surely scared me from going up hill fast. This has happened maybe 5 times in the past 6 months.
  12. One of my favorite rides to date.
  13. Is there a way to sort/look at forum members by location? I'd like to reach out to more people for group rides.
  14. @Twiggen @haruko23 You guys need to join in on the monthly group ride in San Diego. Follow my Youtube Channel to see the rides we do.
