Hypersonics small trains

Wednesday, June 30, 2004 11:56 AM
Why are those trains hateful for us tall people? Im 6'3, and I had the hardest time getting into them. It wasnt the lapbar, but the holding bar... My knee kept hitting it, and almost stopped me from riding it. Its weird cause the trains looked real big and whatnot, but that stupid grab bar. Did anyone else have trouble with that bar? I think they should really redesign the grab bar higher or bend it up some way so it dont hit knees! lol

Again.. my usual statement on life. Everything is geared for everyone to be 5'8 and 140lbs. Anything above or below that spectrum may as well get used to the inconvenience of not falling into the standard.

What was I supposed to put here again?!?!

As a 6'-2" rider, I've just become accustomed to not fitting easily on many rides. Like CoasterBearVa said, we're not the norm, and we're bound to not fit into all rides well. Designing rides for the average rider is the most logical design to create.

The new trains are very tight even for someone 5'8" with a bit of a beer gut.
