Default Re: motorized unicycle build

OK, I decided to try a steerable nosewheel for training myself to ride this thing. Guess i'll hafta call it a Wheellie bike.
I rode it a little on tarmac at about 5 mph. The idea was to get a slow stable speed established,then ease the nosewheel up to wheelie mode.
It wheelied easily but I don't have the tailskid installed yet so I stopped that experiment.

The wheelbase is so short that steering is real twitchy when you let the nosewheel back down, and I think I'll try a fixed nosewheel when I add the skid or tailwheel.
