U-turns to the right are out of the question -- you run over the chain and it ends up to the left of the wheel. U-turns to the left take a bit over 2 lanes, if you're good. Best option: pick it up and flip it end-for-end. Most turns at >10 mph are no problem. Once, I even scraped my heel on the pavement in a turn. If lower is faster, it's fast.
