    Thanks Gockie... I am actually really enjoying watching videos of other noobie riders (BHCheiftain comes to mind) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ir3s...ature=youtu.be

    It's amazing how we all have our own individual approach to riding. I guess that individuality evolves into 'style' when sufficiently skilled.

        Awesome progress, you're well on your way. This is the part where you start tracking how far you can go before you fall off. Slowly you will become much more efficient in your riding technique.

          Watching this video, it occurred to me one of the reasons why learning on a 20" is superior. In the video, Steve is completely true to his name wobbly. If that amount of wobbliness happened on a larger wheel, I don't think most beginners would be able to stay on. So, the smaller wheel allows Steve to be wobblysteve. If Steve learned on a 36", on the other hand, I might now be responding to faceplantsteve.

                My maximum distance is about 10 metres, but not able to mount yet.
                Also I am quite inconsistent... Some attempts result in only a couple of pedal rotations.
                I will be trying your method of mounting using a brick/piece of wood.
                Your progress has really inspired me to keep at it...

                  I had about a week of what felt like stalled progress— could only get a few turns on average then fall off. After a while it just “clicked” in my head. I think the brain just needs exposure to the balancing problem.
