So, I got an ultimate wheel on Sunday and started trying to learn. I spent 3 1/2 hours practicing with pants but not leg guards next to the fence. No luck. Next day I continued for about another hour and a half same thing no luck.
I got these cheap plastic leg guards at Academy on Wednesday. I noticed it made it a lot easier to ride because it reduces the friction problem. However, they twist a lot, which is very annoying because it causes them to restrict range of motion on my legs and as a result I fall off. I can go a few revolutions and then the twisting becomes a big issue.
I know I could master this so fast if I just had good leg guards that don’t twist. Anyone know of any leg guards that are good for this and not too overpriced? I tried Scheels on Monday but they were out of stock and then Academy on Tuesday for the temporary ones I have now. It’d be nice not to have to wait another week and order it so I don’t have to deal with more shipping delays. Honestly was already hard enough just to get an ultimate wheel shipped to my house. I may have to do that though.
