    finally got my LC-1

    the UPS man just dropped it off. No wonder it took so long, how many times did they have to pack it to get into such a tiny box?

        Yea what he said
        I'm interested to switch from top end to these guys. Spoke to the owner and am looking forward to trying the different models.

          It'll take less than an hour tops to set it up. Well, maybe a little longer being this is your first one.

          Looking forward to seeing it setup. You're going to love the bike once it's dialed in.

              assembly of bike didn't take as long as removing all the zip ties, tape, and foam from shipping. definitely need to fine tune it, it's a little "floppy" now. i don't see any problem with it tipping over, i fall out before it tips over, so i don't see an issue with that. i will work on it later today. my kids rode it around and think it is so cool.

                It's gonna work those core muscles bigtime JS. As the speed increases and your fitness gets better, the floppyness will stabilize. Keep the tire pressure up.

                    my kids had a hard time riding it, so i don't feel so bad about the balance problem. just sitting in it sitting still and turning side to side is a workout without the pedaling involved. IT IS REALLY COOL THOUGH, unique feeling. much different feel than the Force G i tried out, not even comparable, 2 totally different machines.

                      Does it provide a good abdominal workout? I have decent balance, but my gut is growing. Do you think it would help reduce an oversize gut better than a headset-steer?

                        you bet it would chas. Leansteers work the lower core esp. obliques incredibly well.

                          i thought i had good balance till I got on it, then i had some other people try it out and they had just as hard time, i can tell it's just a learning curve though, just gotta find the secret way to lean with out going too far over, all technique like anything else with SCI. i sat in it for about 10 minutes last night just leaning back and forth and i was working muscles i didn't know existed i think. thought i had found all those after my injury.

                            Its going to take time to learn how to ride it properly. When I first got my leaner back about ten years ago I felt like a drunk sailor the first time I rode it. The second time went much smoother and the third ride I had really got the hang of it. Just don't ride alongside a road where there is traffic the first few rides until you get the hang of it.

                              I used to be an avid cyclist (pedal & motor). I loved to lean to steer (didn't require abs though). Is steering a leansteer anything at all like steering a bike by leaning?
