If you reckon you would struggle at 38, what chance would I have at 48. I am flat out getting out of bed! Did the lawns & cleaned around the house & washed my work ute yesterday & struggled today (Arthritis in ankles). Had it since I was 15!!!!
Question. How do you turn corners with such a large rear wheel & how do you stop it. Do you rely on front brake only or your heels?
It's only a push bike,they only do what you tell it too,Turn left it goes left turn right it goes right.This one will have a disc front brake but at the pace we ride em on pub crawls if you can't stop or fall off your doing something really wrong!
Don't get on em a try to wheelie it cos it is never going to happen,if it had a rear brake it wouldn't skid it anyway cos there would not be enough brake pressure to make it stop unless you use motorbike brakes.That is just unwanted weight anyway and I'll never mount any up on any of my bikes.You would find a front brake only more than enough to stop one of these things.You have to remember it would be lucky to weight 15-20kg all up and thats way less than a motorbike!There not everyones cup of tea I know but treat it like the thing it is and you will never get hurt on it.
But in saying all that it will handle like a push bike with a car tyre on it!
P.S I'm 37 and still ride as offen as I can,even spending a half hr with the kids riding around our cul-de-sac during the week and doing our weekend ride together and have never being without a bike from my early list memory.
