    kind of a random question, but do you guys with friction kits (i got the staton kit) notice any difference when balancing?

    i feel myself leaning a little more (ie... compensating) on either side, but it's really hard to tell cause i haven't ridden a regular bike in a while

    thanks buddy, mine's been great so far. it's hard to explain, but it just feels different than a regular bike. maybe it's counterintuitive to not peddle, but that's just cause i've ridden bikes for so long

    The gyroscopic effect of the wheels tends to hold the bike in a single
    plane unless influenced by a weight shift or turn.
