Default Re: Friction Drive Kit Questions

I've had my friction drive kit for about 4 thing that might help is to get the fattest tire that fits with little to no tread. I use a Schwalbe Big Apple.

Another thing that is fairly critical is air pressure-you want to the tire to be pumped up fairly hard and have your knurled wheel pushed down into the tire so the tire deflects 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch.

Hope that helps
If some's good...more is better and too much ain't enough.
