Let's just get something out of the way - the Skatecycle is not the easiest thing to learn how to ride. But did you learn how to ride a bicycle the first few days or even week? It's the same concept, you have to stick with it, be disciplined, and be passionate about eventually getting it. For me personally, it took me roughly 1 month from the first day that I unboxed my black Skatecycle to the day that I could officially say "I'm good at it."

I had no prior experience with skateboarding, snowboarding, rollerblading, or any of those similar activities. I was very persistent and started off the first few days by rolling around in my kitchen (only part in my apartment with a hard, flat surface) just getting my balance and learning how to stay on the Skatecycle. I had watched some instructional videos on YouTube that helped with this initial process. After of which, I took the plunge and went outside - but not before buying a helmet (I fell several times and the helmet proved to be useful). At least 1 hour a day for the next 2 weeks I was rolling along, using walls and street lights or whatever it was I could get my hands on to help me balance. Every few days I would continue to improve on my stamina, or find something new that made me say "aha!" when I figure something out that made riding easier. Finally after a few weeks, I was rolling around with ease and able to sustain a ride for as long as my legs didn't get tired (which isn't more than 2-3 minutes before I have to stop).

One other piece of advice that no one has ever told me, is that you should start out by picking a dominant foot. I "learned" how to ride the Skatecycle with my right foot in front, left foot in the back.

I have had my Skatecycle for a few weeks now, and I love it! It is quite challenging to learn at first--it is a completely different technique than Ripstik boards(bored of mine). It takes much more patience and practice, but it pays off by being that much more fun.

I enjoy to get outside and get my exercise. First, I got myself some rollerblades. Then I saw enough Ripstiks to finally want to get one myself. And then I saw the Freerider Skatecycle here on Amazon, I knew right away I needed this skating contraption.

I ordered it a few weeks after discovering it, and after my high anticipation of it's arrival, the day of awesomeness had finally come. I already knew that the Skatecycle folds up, but it is surprisingly compact in person;the item is smaller, yet heavier than expectations.

Patience and practice are a huge part of the learning process. It took me around 3 days to get the basics figured out, not to say I ride all too far yet haha. But, that is a lot of the fun for me, to figure out the new ride. And when you finally do get going, it is nothing short of epic.

The product seems to be extremely well made, and it has looks to match. It may not be as easy of a ride as some other boards available, but it is the most rewarding for the effort and also worth the price tag. As soon as you receive the package, you feel the quality vibe radiating. I have zero complaints with my Skatecycle, and look forward to riding it much more!

If you are looking for a new ride that is UNLIKE a Ripstik, but more akin to a snake board, then this is the ultimate right here.

First things I noticed out of the box was the top quality construction, and that it was a little heavier than I thought it was going to be. I've practiced a few times so far about 30 minutes at a time and have seen a little progress each time that makes me really want to stick with it, but I know I have a long way to go before I'm really riding the skatecycle and I can't wait. The challenge to learning this is half the fun.

So...this free rider is a microcosm of society. It's not easy and most will give up and quit. Those same people will create excuses and reasons why they could do it...design flaw! No..it's user flaw. See...there are people who can do it...so it's NOT an issue with the skate cycle, it's an issue with you. I know that's is super difficult to accept and comprehend....it's not the free rider..it's you.

It took me all of 20 minutes to figure it out...

Was it difficult? Yes....

It took me W A Y longer to learn how to ride a unicycle, but I stuck that one out also. There's this word called perseverance...look it up.

So, if you want to learn to ride this "flawed" item, here are some secrets...

1. The front of your ankles should NOT come in contact with the stirrups. You actually BALANCE on the wheels. The balls of your feet must be directly over the wheels.

2. You don't really lean to balance and recover, you turn your feet in and out. I am not saying you don't lean at all, but the key is pointing your toes if you are falling forward...and your heels if falling a bit back. The item is incredibly well balanced...once you get the hang of it, when you come to a stop, it literally will just stand there for a bit.

3. You need a slight downhill to initially learn....or a wall or corner you can push off with your hands. Just like a bicycle, it's way easier when you are moving at a decent speed than being still...get it?

4. To pump yourself, you need to get a snowboard glide type motion...the upper part of you body starts the flow and the lead leg does the carve...the back foot follows and keeps the pump.

5. It helps to point your back toe towards the back...and heel closer to middle...
