Dangerous and exciting time. Physical seat radically oriented to backwards. Body finding new optimum.
Purpose of these forward stroke is to compress the spine.
Body is to be checked in with periodically as to the mechanics. Is it happy?
Body must be shifted far enough that the knees terminate at the rotation point of the pedals. If not very frustrating and frustrating over rotation occurs. Worrisome because the knees clear the cross bar by about only an eighth of an inch.
Radical seat rotation makes sense. Does not seem to be a magic bullet of any sort. Yet this is only day one.
Inconclusive but remembering the up stroke as a deliberate feature of timing and aiming is a good idea it seems. Get also helps Lathan the stroke. And it set up this thrust importantly it seemed.
Pressing against the aligned lower spine seems to be now bringing back elements of upright cycling. Head forward curling backflow tight into the seat. Trusting against that aligned spine.
Finding, making, the target point on the ground in front of the vehicle is really really really difficult and really really really crucial.
Everything is in two elements, properly positioning the body so that the outward thrust of the thighs compressors the spine, a entirely stable platform, and hitting the target consistently based on the needs established by the Cadence and the force. Very difficult. Absolutely crucial.
