Does anyone have any good posture tips for increasing speed and efficiency?
I read somewhere on the forum that pointing the toes helps. This seems to provide some benefit. My understanding of this is that it might be transitioning the vertical force of the downstroke in such a way that helps position the center of mass slightly in front of the unicycle. I feel that it enables me to continue applying pressure through the beginning of the upstroke.
Pushing down on the handle also seems to help. I assume that this is because I’m shifting my center of balance forward.
Leaning forward seems to make very little difference. Should this be the case? I don’t have a lot of trouble on hills, so I think I’m able to shift my weight forward; however, it doesn’t really help on the flats. If I hinge at the hips, my weight (more or less) stays centered over the unicycle. I think I might be messing something up here.
Any ideas? Other than ride more… I’m working on that one.
