  • Turtle's V is back!

    after long time not riding my turtle's V (36" geared) (I was even thinking of selling it...), i made some changes: impact saddle with carbon plate instead of the bike saddle, narrower bar, mud guard.... and know i'm using it daily (comuting to work) and i love it (not as much as my muni of course...)

    If everything's under control, you're going too slow

      I love this thing.

      Why the switch back to the uni seat?

      For the short time I was using a bike seat I thought it was great for spinning on the road but pretty much sucked if I wanted to sit up and do slow speed manoeuvres.

        same thing here, the bike seatis great for long rides (also the aerobar which i took off aswell)in the flat without corners etc., but with the uniseat i feel much "safer", turns are way easier...

              Wow I love it!. want one
              I have a question: is faster than a "non-V" geared 36?

                the rider makes the speed...


                maybe it's slightly faster because you can spin easier and the better position in the wind (but that would be even better if i would use the aerobar again...)

                    Wow... That's amazing!
                    I just love it!

                    But wouldn't it hurt when you fall of? I mean the handlebar seams pretty much to be in the way.
                    Well... Just don't fall off

                      I once tried to mount that beast. If you stand next to it, the handle bar is right in front of your face. Quite frightening. After a couple of attempts I successfully freemounted the uni, but it was hard work. Riding is great once you are seated.

                            that looks like a "magic shine" LED light made in China. I got mine at Dealextreme.com cheap. Then I discovered a recall due to LiPo batteries bursting into flames while charging. I still have the light, I just charge the batteries in a big metal bucket.

                              @roger: i'm really more into municycling and do roadriding only for commuting or if i can't go in the mountains, so i'll not be at the marathon in Düsseldorf. but if you'd like to try it, come by when you're in germany or i'll try to bring it to the grischa muni challenge.

                              @kb1jki: yes i think it's one of those, i ordered it in germany.... thanks for the advice, i'll have to charge it also in a safe space...
