thinking about a GoSlide

I'm getting tired of our single wheel wright velkes... I guess as I'm getting older my knees are feeling it a little more. Are the GoSlides all they are hyped up to be?

I'll be using it on a 48" TT and either a 160ish pound rider or a 200ish pound rider will be operating it. Any issues there?

I recently purchased a go-slide and I like it lot. So far using it, I really like. I have really bad knees and as it does absorb the bumps but does allow you to glide over them making it easier in the body. You do have to get off to turn, or at least I have to, but that is no big deal due to it not being massive.

I'm 6'1" 150 pounds so I def like it because it doesn't put me any higher on the controls then I already am, unlike some sulkys can do.

Well I ordered a go-slide... if it works good, I may spring for the pro-slide. Something about that gas strut though just doesn't seem like it would last a long time.
