MUCH OF MY POSTING WAS ON FACEBOOK: STARTLOVING1
Cycling 900-pound ebike payload technique . detail
1. 100%, all, the entire power is in the scissoring, pumping, knees / thighs, and especially in the smooth complete high-stepping rise of each knee and thigh with every stroke. Everything seems to be set up by this. PUMPING IN ENERGY FROM DIRECTLY UNDER THE Vehicle at very low cadence, to a substantial angle forward depending upon the speed of Revolutions of the crank.. the angle is absolutely critical but quite clear if one thinks about it at a point in time as a function of thrust power and Cadence.
2. Operate within, as part of the machine, not acting on the machine. After hours of effective technique the body seems to find an extreme efficiency and Effectiveness space between easily staying part of the machine centered in the knees with low force and then adding just enough force that the full perimeter of the machine can be kept entirely throughout every rotation but substantial Force applied every centimeter of the stroke 360 degrees.
3. 100% limp, The Shins ankles feet. Completely counterintuitive. Their limp purpose is to give 100% freedom to the knees / thighs to circle, scissor, with in their full range of cycling /pumping. Miraculously, it works.
Relax fully in the stroke, as frequently as needed, to feel the extremes and limits of the range of travel of the knee thigh levers. Then gently but firmly add pressure within that full range.
Seek to pull energy into the vehicle with every inch of that full range, with every inch of travel.
