  1. We got these in at work the other day to sell for Christmas, they look pretty cool I haven't had a chance to play with one yet, will give one a rip this week.


  2. Hehe looks cool. Do they get their knee down around corners?
  3. they dont get their knee down but servos actually lean the rider to make it turn
  4. Cool, what are they worth roughly?
  5. IMPOSSIBLE!!! surely they have to contersteer! :LOL: :LOL:

    Nice! I've seen a Troy Corser one of those, too.

    (Bit of an RC-head myself - too many expensive hobbies I think! :grin: )

    Another one, in action: http://au.[media=youtube]kkMX-QkBKEw[/media] (it's about half-way through before he starts playing with the controls :roll: though there are other related vids)
  7. They are $149 RRP, I tested one out in the shop, they go fast but I only had a narrow walkway to play with it in and I kept veering into stuff before I could correct it... and no it wasn't target fixation lol

    They would be bloody good fun in an open area
  8. They look awesome ! :LOL:
    C'mon Joel, we all know that you steer a bike using 'body steering'
    :-w :p
  9. Does it fall over when you stop? which means that you haveto walk there to pick it up?
  10. Where can i grab one of these?
  11. They dont fall right over when you stop as there is a little bar that sits in either side of the bike which you can adjust to suit skill levels ie: allows more or less lean
  12. Approximate size?
  13. these bikes look sweet. what sort of speed do they travel. this one even gets up on the back wheel
  14. sorry just gotta make a few more posts to put a link up
