« on: 21, May, 2011 - 15:58:17 »
Hi All C5 ┬┤er.. ;D
ill like to buy a Zike but since im quite big "180 long and around 100 kg" ill like to know if i can even ride that bike..
i have since before a Sinclair A-bike and there the max ratio is 85 kg..

I don't know about the Zike, but if you are a big lad like me ( similar weight), then no the A-bike isn't for you!

I had one and kept falling backwards on it when I tried moving off. Even once I did get going the wheels are so small that even clipping a small pothole meant you are going to fall over!

I've got a ZETA II instead and fitted that to my normal bike, but it's not a patch on the C5!!
