Cool!!!

Did you know how to ride, or will start practice?

Cesar, I had one when I was twelve but the seat post was way too short so it was tough for me to ride. This one is a whole lot easier and way cooler with the super knobby mountain bike tire. I picking it up pretty fast. I've only had a couple hours on it in 30 minute chunks and I can balance and hop around for a minute or so and I can ride about 20ft. The first challenge has been to figure out the extra gear: my soccer (football to most of the world) shinguards help from getting whacked with the peddles, helmet of course, fingerless gloves are next as well as some other padding and protection due to the shape of the seat.

You almost approach this like a scientific experiment :) Since you don't have to fear injuries or pain, it makes you much more daring, and you'll probably learn much quicker as a result of your broader "test-range".

Maël, isn't everything an experiment on some level :)

I'm still close to heart attacks when I see my daughter on that one :-)

Olaf, let me rephrase that, the tallest seat post without a chain :) I don't blame you for almost having a heart attack...
