uni weight is much more important then rider weight
Whenever you try to spin the uni, it also spins the rider. It’s that “every force acting on an object will be opposed by an equal and opposite force” thing. A 100 lb rider will be effected by this twice as much as a 200 lb rider. Just growing stronger or losing weight is not the answer.
But yeah, if you email Cullen he should shave more then 100$ off msrp.
Also, consider that if you buy a used Torker for 100$, you should be able to sell it later for the same. Teach a friend to ride and sell it to them etc. Weight isn’t a big deal for a beginner. If you buy a lighter uni once you start to do more advanced tricks it should all work out good.
wait a second. First off, who is cullen, I looked at the ae bike threads and couldn’t find any of his posts’. And how do i save myself a hundred dollars!? Could someone elaborate on this please. Thanks
