You get every bit of hop the axle sees that can not be diminished by your seat springs.

With a tall seatpost, you get amplified hop, AND a forward/backward jolt along with a horrid cg.

Probably best place for seating is near as possible to axle height, midway between the axles.

I think the recumbent guys figured it out.
I never tried one.
Perhaps I should!

do you know how crazy that would look with a motor on it ? !! absolutly sick! llllow an sssllllow.
four wheels move the body . two wheels move the soul
