Ha! yes...avoid pot holes at speed!!! The tires are fairly small. BUT, I wouldn't want to hit a pothole on a full size motor bike at 45 either.TheBMallory wrote: ↑Aug 06 2019 11:12amthere's a lot of things that are inadequate at those speeds.efMX Trials Electric Freeride wrote: ↑Aug 06 2019 9:33ammy implication was that the stock brakes may become inadequate once the power and speed is multiplied..
let's take the sand up scooter for instance, I would be scared to hit a pothole or something with this tiny wheel and no suspension.
There is front suspension, nothing in the back. It's quite stable at speed too. No wobble or shimmying even at 55mpg. Braking is very straight line and no oscillations. If there is a speed issue, it is the the tight turning radius. You can turn around 180 degrees in less than 10 feet of space. Do any radical direction change at 45 and you will wreck!
I don't let anybody ride it, but me. It is fast for it's size and it will get away from you. Accelerating, it will throw you off. Slowing down it will throw you off. But then I built it to see how strong could I go. I'm helping a friend build an even smaller stand up scooter that will be stronger than this one. Should be really interesting!
