Tracking a line
Easy at 15 mph. Not so easy at 3 mph.
I ride a TE, locally and cross country. On rare occasion, I'll encounter grades >7%. I do not like pushing. Thus an interest in 'how slow can I go on this thing' and stay upright?
Answer: 2.5 mph. How? By moving my hands inward on the bar, thus reducing the leverage affect. By spinning@>80 rpm. By focusing on the horizon.
Yeah, there is some wobbling about, but well within the tolerable range.
Any thoughts on this issue from other 2 wheelers out there? I know this is a non-issue for you trike guys.
The bicycle is one of the great inventions of mankind. Delights children, challenges young men to feats of daring, and turns old men into boys again.--Me
