    Track stands

    Is it me, or are they easier to do without holding the handlebars?

    If I'm not the only one, then why?

    It is, I know, but that's not my point.

    Another topic that has been beat to death by amateurs and been explained scientifically by academics.

    Having a gigantic dong effectively lowers your center of gravity, making it easier to balance. Mine is only medium sized, so I usually have to hold onto the bars.

    Is this a thing?

    Center of gravity? Irrelevant when you're sporting a built-in kickstand.

    I track stand sitting in the saddle without my hands on the bars. I use my enormous dong to adjust the bars back and forth. The hands are used to point out my enormous dong. "Hey ladies, look at my large member. Does it not look gratifying?"

    I had a wild boar burger for dinner. Meh. Overcooked.

    I'm so jealous of you guys. I had a ton of disgusting Chinese food and delicious ice cream for dinner. Hopefully it will go straight to my dong and improve my trackstand skillz.

    Hey, this is a family-friendly forum. No talk of holding your donglebar.

    This thread is getting racy, and can only lead to bad things. I can't wait.

    Not sure for the reason for all these responses. Asking legit question.

    it's a very uninteresting thing to most of us. some people have great balance and some people have better balance when their heads are above their feet.

    not really a lot going on behind that. your balance is different. that's fine. if you want us to tell you you're weird, well, i think you are. most people like to be able to control the front wheel, hence arms on bars.

    I barely ever trackstand anymore, honestly. If no one's watching, it's like "Why bother?"

    Also I usually just modulate my speed to coincide with traffic light rhythms and never stop cuz totally pro.
