KS16X - one foot riding causes wheel chafe?


Recommended Posts

I've also experienced this and have the same suspicion. Also, the plastic parts that house the red turn signal LEDs are also one of the attachment points for the side panels, and I've had one break, likely due to riding with one leg. After noticing this I try to ride with my foot as close to the case as possible (when riding on one leg) and that seems to have mitigated the problem so that I never hear wheel rub against that case anymore.

From what I can tell the clearance between tire and shell is minimal - when you one foot ride you put alot of pressure on the shell with upper leg and slight distortion causes contact with the tire. They cut it too close design wise.
