Hunka Hunka Burning Love Posted July 16, 2017 Share Posted July 16, 2017 Even though 20 kph is by no means fast, I went over a sidewalk bump on a downhill that sent me airborne slightly and coming down my right foot position was way off (moved forwards). I nearly lost control but cooler heads prevailed, and I was able to recover. I haven't felt the need to add grip tape or the grip screws that I purchased for my Ninebot, but I'm kinda rethinking that. Usually I ride pretty relaxed, but maybe I should have gripped onto the wheel more going over the bumps. Usually I don't have any problems going over bumps, but this was a wake up call for sure espcially since I've been yearning for a faster wheel. I'm sure going at higher speeds the chance of getting airborne are much greater. I've also hit unexpected dips that lurch you forwards while it takes a split second for the wheel to ride out of it. Those are scary too since you don't see it coming. I don't know how people ride in the dark at high speeds. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
