Hello all - my first post to the group!
I've mostly finished building my first Python. Nothing adventurous, just
followed Jurgen's build instructions, pretty much to the letter. ;o)
But now I'm starting to try to learn to ride it... which is... challenging. I
actually teach both children and adults to ride normal bikes, so I have a
really good feel for the dynamics of how they stay upright and steer (hint:
steer into the fall), but can't get my head or body around the Python. My
feeling is that shifting weight to the right causes steer to the left. But
mostly it's about paddling along on my hands, with the neighbours shaking their
heads from behind their curtains.
Does anyone have any good tips about this? I mean the riding - I'm sure I can
suffer the neighbours' ridicule.
