They're just not as fast! - and I don't want to surrender to a nearby car ;-)

It was ~63 degrees, but I changed it to 70. It feels much more responsive; 
although I haven't gone really fast (~30), I feel very stable if I coast and 
push on both pedals. The first time I got on it after the change I could turn 
around in half the diameter. The trail is still the absolute minimum, only 
about 3mm from the tire to the pivot!
