It really steers with your feet. the handlebars are more for getting on it and something for your hands to do while riding. Im waiting for all this snow and ice to go away so I can test ride before moving on with it.
After sitting on this thing a couple of times I realized I felt like I was to close to the pedals so I moved the seat back about three inches. Now it should be able to steer better too so it was a good move. Still needs some kind of brake, a mounting step and Im making some handgrips now.
