Just last night James more clearly realized that the electronic drive substantially masks the biomechanics of the human machine interface. Not a complaint. It is a marvelous technology. Look at what it has made possible? But it provides a massive obstacle to the body to find out what's really happening with the vehicle, and thereby how to best move it. In part because it is so subtle.
This may be a key to why the final 20% of many Journeys is the best biomechanic performance. The body has had time to feel through the subtlety, and often the final part of the journey is the steepest and that tends to bring the body and the physical machine closer together and less separated by the behavior of the electronics.
Note to James, by the end of last night's Journey, Only 700 calories, James was working to get past this Electronics disguised barrier. That seems like a good thing.
James also struggled a lot with trying to remove the physical distance between the end of his knees and the mechanical end of the stroke. A physical limitation in the seat design was discovered that allows further adjustment slightly downward. That could be rectified. First an attempt will be made to slide the seat a bit more forward and see if that is sufficient.
