Hi guys.
Was just wondering...aside from the long footboard and and chain drive do you guys think the speed cobras cam and geometry setup is similar to a Flexi-flyer?. To me it seems so..they both have a rounded cam and the footboard is recessed back.

My foot generally likes the Flexi more than a long board, BUT that new Dyna Sync pedal is pretty dang awesome.
I'd personally get the Dyna Sync over the Speed Cobra.

Flexi-flyer does not have a round cam, but that is secondary. It is important that the gear ratio of Flexi is about 8 and the speed cobra just below 9(8,8)

I tried the speed cobras and my mate ended up buying them. Long board is a bit weird at first but after a few mins it was awesome. Def reccomend.

They do have those similarities, but I would not equate that to having a similar feel, and certainly not similar performance (obviously).
