Thanks for the write up. I may have missed it, did you find you have to use a lot more arm/shoulder to turn the front wheel? A buddy of mine stated he had to get use to that.
Yes. That's one of the things that is important to learn. At first you'll try just pushing or pulling to turn. Then you see how sore you get. Then ya figure out to push and pull at the same time. Makes life a lot easier. then you add in the upper body to the push pull and now your riding. Not working.
The rear end in very compliant. It stays down. The suspension reacts as youd expect.
The other thing is you run the tires at 22psi in the rear. That makes it a bit more smooth over little bumps.
