sharp 360's

    I don't remember if I actually sent this message, and no one responded, or
if I somehow didn't send it at all.  At any rate, I'll assume that if I did ask
already, NOBODY out there knows how to do a 360.  That seems a little strange
to me, so I'll ask again.

    I'm trying to figure out the sharp 360 degree turn.  I've got the 180, but
don't know what to do for the 360.  Where do the pedals need to start, etc?  
Any help would be appreciated mucho.

Alex

It appeared but, being on the mailing list, I don't tend to reply to
things coming through the gateway from the newsgroup on the basis that
there's usually a considerable delay before I get to see them and any
questions have usually been answered.

Anyways, t'would appear not to be the case this time...

The thing to bear in mind is that you don't have to spin on the spot -
the general consensus is that you need to be able to turn within a 1m
diameter circle - and that's loads of space.  ;-)

Just practise leaning into corners and you'll soon be riding in circles
less than 1m.

Hope that helps.

Regards,
Mark.
