So, having never ridden one. Is there anything anyone can tell me about them that I should be aware of, in the sense of…oh it was a couple of months until I realised, or you can do this or that, which probably won’t be explained in the 10 minutes of chat we will have before I ride off?
Given that the bike will be brand new, I don’t think I need to do any tyre kicking, so not looking for problems that might arise.
Don’t do any tyre kicking but definitely get them to check the pressures before you set off.
If find the recommended 36f 42r (that’s if they’ve checked them at all haha) to be way too high for the ‘average’ weight rider and much prefer around 34f 37r. This will help with a slightly bigger tyre ‘footprint’ generating a tad more grip and heat into it. Will help scrubbing in those new tyres as well.
There’s different power modes too:cool: You’ll love it!
I rode one for 4 days, around 500 miles. Its like an inline jap 4 1000cc bike but faster. And I have yet to meet someone riding them on the road that can actually ride them… I have just re-read that last sentence and it reads badly. But they are ridden by arseholes. Maybe you will fit in that bracket??? Otherwise buy something else… They even look shite,
