flexi buggy


I am thinking about getting the flexifoil buggy (the new one from 2002). I am very use to riding with a back rest on my Peter Lynn (which I've only had to repair one minor crack). Do any of you ride the fleix with a back rest or do you feel secure enough in teh seat with out one?
See ya at El-Mir on March 26th!!

Hey OT,
The only problem with back rests is you lean back.
That shifts weight to the rear axle.
The move is forward.
The Flexi buggy is a good example of this.
Add the extended rear axle and the 12" of frame extension is included.
Keeping the rider more centered.

The Flexi seat is one of the more comfortable iterations with the built-in back rest.

Do you wear a harness?

I think most of us got into back-rest because we sat in our first buggy and without a kite to support from forward, we just naturally started looking for a comfortable seat (to watch tv?)

I am only a bit worried by your reference to "feeling secure without a backrest"
How do you feel insecure?
What are you trying to say here?

You'll get chances to try options at Elmers.

See you there,

Thanks Corey..I'm getting the buggy next month so I see how I feel in the seat. Using a harness (the quadfoil one) now so that should help considerablly. Are you still looking for a Box of Tricks? I was at the 2002 blast and you mentioned you were looking for one. And "Happy Birthday" from a somewhat secure OT
