A new study has come out stating that too much sitting is not good even if working out. http://fox59.com/2017/09/14/yes-sitting-too-long-can-kill-you-no-matter-how-much-you-exercise/ Would riding frequently reduce the negative effects of too much sitting?
About a year ago I had this idea of using a piano chair for EUC. You can see my original concept below: It was fun riding it. It was like learning to ride a new gadget all over again. In the end, it was still unstable and hard to ride. Since then I was busy doing other things, and only recently I return here. So now I have some time to get the bench 2.0 done. The biggest problem for me to ride it is that my feet is hard to touch the ground. It was because of the orientation of the bench top. I took it out and rotate it 90 degrees, and now it looks more like a saddle. My feet now can easily touch the ground left and right. It makes the riding safer too. In the mid-section I used 1/4 inch diameter 2 inch screw to tie up 4 corner braces. On top of those braces I used 2 10inch mending plate to connect the two legs. I use wing nuts so I can remove the mending plates and fold the chair in 5 minutes. As you can see from the pictures below. The mending plates can be attached to the chair after folding. The chair fit my new Kingsong 14C perfectly. Almost seen like it was designed for it. For my old EUC I need to put an old shopping bag into the gap so it won't wobble around. Once the gap is filled. Riding it is much easier. The chair is now almost like part of the EUC. The little platform in the mid-section could be used for anything: shopping basket, extra battery holder... Whatever you like. The look of the chair also improved. It's kinda cool I think.
