I added a few half hexes and a full hex and now the sphere has smooth edges… it also adds to the cost. I also had a thought on getting in an out. Instead of climbing over the pedals the user could take off their shoes and step onto the back of the seat. Once they’re standing (or crouching, safer) in the middle then the sphere can slowly rotate to the regular position so they can sit down and strap themselves in. This means they don’t have to turn around and we can add a small foot step by the pedals that can take the weight.

I made a new render and whipped up a low res video too.
