Yeah, mine's at the minimum insertion mark too, but I've got short legs so it's not terribly low.
I have been looking around the house for an option for a side start
My learning stage was done by holding the side pillar of the roller door of my shed, then leaning forward and pedalling off into free space on the driveway apron.
As I got better at that, I had to learn to turn off the apron onto the driveway proper, and ride up to the gate. Then I lent on the garbage bin to mount, and headed back down the driveway, around the corner and into the shed.
My turns aren't yet good enough to U-turn on the shed driveway apron and head back up to the gate... but I was working on it last time I put in a practice sesh.
I don't think I am quite ready for the free start yet but would be interested in hearing the tips if you are willing to share.
Yes please. I can get them about half the time...
