I got my x-lite a couple of months ago. It was kind of in sketchy condition when I got it so I did a few things to spice up the looks and performance. Maybe some of the ex or current Monty dudes can tell. Anyway I'm really happy I got it. This place I'm renting has an old hardwood floor in it and when winter comes I'll be able to wire a few skills indoors while it snows outside. As a matter of fact this old floor was the first place I ever pedalkicked, so it will always remind me of that. The pics below are after several hours where I went from finally learning to pedalkick the rear tire off the ground on a totally flat surface (longest was 5ft) into putting some pallets down and seeing what would change. I discovered I needed about a foot of space between my rear contact patch and the actual gap. When I tried to poise the rear on the very edge and then gap I wound up flat on my back after looping out. Its funny that it took me almost 10 months to feel ready to pedalkick, but when I was finally ready to, it only took a few hours of doing it to come up with the pic sequence below. Its easy and fun to do.. I dont know what all the fuss was about!
