    Two wheeled or single?

    I use the two wheeled and once I got used to it it is very easy to stay balanced in sharp/quick turns. Just kinda lean into the turn slightly. Thats the only way I can describe it. You will be riding against/next to the handles while in the turn.

    I use Jungle Wheels but, the Velkey X2 will swivel under the arm when you turn. Of course you have to step off to do it. Z turns are not that big of a deal. I do just fine with my Jungle Wheels. Tony

    you just bend your knees and rotate at your waist. just make sure you keep your hips away from the handles or you get some nasty bruises
