Hi all learning Pythonauts,

A thing to make in the beginning is to ride a (very) light uphill street (not downhill) or to use your brakes permanently, so you can put force on the pedals and nevertheless drive slow (for quick stops) it's easier to control.......
.....hope i'm clear.....

Serge, hello!

Many thanks for this help. This puts me right back into the quandary again. I'm now well into making the trike back end. Yet I still retain that nagging desire to be able to ride freely, with what Jurgen calls a kind of easy *meditative* state of mind, my original two-wheel Python, just like those fluent riders in the vids. Really, I want to be able to ride both forms, bike and trike. But last time I tried to ride the bike, yesterday, I seemed to have gone backwards, and was falling off every three or four metres. Damn!

I'm organising some pictures now, and a vid as well, as soon as possible.

Thanks again for the help, Rh.

Hello Rhisiart,

You must be patient!
In the beginning( first "walking with hands") I practiced Python for half an hour a day and after 6 hours of testing, I made my first tour :8 kilometers...and this with much stops, feet on the ground and hand's on the brakes. Second tour was 8,5 km with 17,18 average speed.....(that's 3 week's after the first test) I remember that I had often thought that I had better build a trike..., now all this is forgotten... Only one advice: dont drive quicker than 25 km/h, make this in a progressive way, in the beginning after 50 km I had a big crash with 30/35 km/h since this time I ride always with ellbowprotectings.
Wish you success


P.s.: perhaps a picture of your bike?
