Default Re: First ride questions

pedal-starting shouldn't be hard, but you could pedal steadily at 8mph for a long time and not start it. Really, think of it more as the torque you put on the pedal than the speed. I usually get going a decent speed, and then let the left pedal get as high as possible, and then put all of my weight onto it as if I was starting a kick-start moped. This works great without a ton of force. But sitting and just dropping the clutch and pedalling normally won't get it started.
