Most I can manage is 9 in 28 seconds. 
 With plenty of time to spare - so I just need to work out how to stop getting dizzy, I don't think my narrow garden and flagstone flooring is helping. 

Video to follow once I can last the whole 60 seconds!

All right! That means 36 per minute on the Mten3!

Seriously, I am surprised you can maintain such a high rate of turn on a big wheel. That is 3 sec per rotation. 

Don't be shy: just post. We just want to have a good time...

My effort is on the Mten3, If I can keep the speed up (which I doubt) it'll be about 21 rotations in 60 seconds.

As @pico says, post even if you can't beat his score. It's fun entertainment :popcorn:

And yeah, the first half is relatively easy. It's the second half that separates the men from the boys :lol:

Yeah, I thought you were on an Mten3. You need to update your Profile - it only shows the Nikola.

Hell, I can do 4 super-fast, and if I keep it up I can do 30 rotations :)  A big if

This is just fun. No limits as far as I'm concerned.

Lol. Funny thing, that was my first attempt - after that I moved the camera. 

Here’s my further attempts. 

 

 

Excellent! Fun to watch!  I just threw up for you!:barf:

 You do have a confined area to work with. Does your wife keep you trapped like me?;)

Yes. Basically

Thurs night I took out the new (used) msx 

fri night spent dismantling the msx 

Sat night - Playing with the Mten3 - I daren’t leave the garden!! 

 

Im going to try somewhere with plain flooring and put a cone on the floor - then just focus on the cone and go round and round... that’s my next plan anyway.

That was hilarious. A+ for effort :thumbup:

May I make a suggestion? The fact that you are getting pedal scrapes should raise a red flag. I rarely scrape my pedals. And I can see why you are - your tire pressure is way too low. I would fill the tire to ~35psi.

Sometimes when it's been awhile since I've ridden my Mten3, the pedal will touch during a sharp turn and I immediately know that the pressure is low and I need to add more air. A firm tire on the Mten3 makes turning effortless and scrape free - your poor Mten3 pedals :crying:

Haha. Thanks. 

That did cross my mind - but it’s not until you see it back on video you can see how squished the tyre is. 

Dont worry about the pedals - it’s if the patio slabs, if I damage them I’ll be in trouble!! 

Ill give the 35psi a go tomorrow. Cheers

New rule! Everyone’s tire pressure must be at 35psi. Start over!:P

Here's my entry: 15

You're up @pico.  And @Mike Sacristan, where's your entry?

 

I met up with some friends to practice today and I got way to dizzy after only 30 seconds!
I will have to get back to you guys. :efee612b4b:

:roflmao:My head is still rolling. 

I tried to count my rotations while spinning. I know I was off a bit but I thought I got caught up around rotation 12. Hey 220/240. 

Damn man that was a lot of spinning.

30 seconds will work. Just sit on your wheel and guzzle a beer for the remainder!

Here are some of my terrible attempts from yesterday.
Hmm.. maybe if I close my eyes.

Or maybe I should try it with my Ninebot and not the 16X which i've only been on for 3 days now.

Excellent job!! :cheers: Wow larger wheels and a stick in hand!

If you’d used a Mten3 and hired Rent a Friend  to hold the camera ;) you easily could have had more reverse spins. :thumbup:

You certainly have the necessary skills, just not the stomach :laughbounce2:

May help if you're not holding the camera and try to focus on objects in the distance for as long as possible while you're turning.

Haha I tried looking at the camera, a distant object, the ground, the sky, etc.
I will give it a shot with the Ninebot but I doubt there will be much difference.
I do love challenges though.. so I will continue to practice. I can get like 5-6 spins in 30 seconds. Then I get way too dizzy.
And I need to spin tighter and faster!

Are we closing the competition for now before I destroy my Mten3 !!!!  ?

I keep my last tally for myself... Until the next contest!

Hilarious. Your poor Mten3 was also dizzy :laughbounce2:

Oh, and the contest is certainly not closed. I'm still hoping to tie or beat your 17, but I need more practice.
