    Good thing I got this side job being a doorman at this tiny tower to fall back on just in case I can't work as a surgeon. Gotta have some contigency plans when riding an EUC!

    Thanks. Funny you should ask. The one of me was taken on a Motorola Moto G4. It's a very good phone, with a great camera. And it cost less than£130. The other two, Were screen captures from video I was shooting as I was wheeling along or standing( in the case of the ferry pics) from an iPhone 5. I really prefer the pictures from the Moto G4, and to think, it's really a phone, with a camera function, not a camera. it's brilliant. @Hunka Hunka Burning Love You're in luck. If you move out here, this one is for rent I believe. At least, that's what the bikini clad babe, sunbathing near it, told me. I can't be sure though, because she was speaking Swedish. ? merry christmas

    Well, on the positive side, at least you can find your car. I think this is mine. Maybe. That's it - I'm moving to Spain. Who's with me?

    I got a Ninebot One S2 for Christmas and I have exactly the problem. I disconnected the batteries, tried to load it, nothing. So I have to send it back to the shop.

    You could also check whether the battery actually delivers voltage at its connector, in case you happen to have a voltage meter.

    Hi Chris, I have tested the CD with the v8 (3pin model), see this thread: @rdalcanto How long does it take to charge the wheel with the fast charger?

    A brand new wheel that you have never turned on should better not have empty batteries.

    Wow! that scooter has a bigger battery, higher speed, longer range and is cheaper than my Ninebotone E+. And it has suspension

    When I had my flat, it was near the valve. I can't imagine trying to patch it without removing the tire from the EUC. I'd love to see a video of your technique!

    You obviously haven't actually tried to do it then have you. For your info, I did pull the tube and patch it - then it went down again 3 weeks later - so this time I decided to replace the tube. To pull the tyre, hook the tube and then find the hole, patch and put it all back together will take the same amount of time as just replacing it. You'll see from my video, there is no need to touch the electrics - that was why I made the video, to make sure nobody makes the same mistakes I made. I'd love to see detailed instructions of 'pulling the axle and dropping the wheel - feel free to share.

    It's not really heat shrinking, but rather heating so it can stretch. It would be nice if you could heat shrink it to make it fit better, would be easier...

    RocketSkates, Electric Skateboards, most Electric Scooters, & the 'Hoverboard', all share the same fundamental flaw... Wheel diameters are too small. This is where the Electric Unicycle really excels, within the 14-18" sizes none of these other products are anywhere near as capable over the types of surfaces you encounter everyday.

    People continue to ride in spite of the risks, and in many cases after being injured, because the enjoyment outweighs the danger, just as it does for motorcycle riders, hang gliders, rock climbers, etc. However, sensible riding goes a long way towards minimizing possible injuries.

    Hey. Can someone explain why all hoverboards look the same . I can't see which one is from which company and so on. I personally bought two 10" ones from two different company's and they are simmilar except the look of the wheels . So who is making what ? And what are the real company's ? Because I'm starting to think that all those so called builders/sellers are buying at the same Chinese factory . If somebody knows names of real factory's and/or real manufactorers?

    My 17 year old son did even better. We are both snow skiers, ice skaters, water skiers, and ride and jump (including backflips) a sky ski. So we are used to balancing on stuff. The key is really understanding that to balance left and right you rotate the wheel left and right, you don't lean it in order to catch your balance, and you can't be a frozen statue. You have to actively rotate the wheel to catch your balance. It becomes subtle with speed and practice. Just wanted to share! We are loving it. We have to buy a second one because nobody wants to get off and let anyone else have a turn!

    Big smiles right now. Daughter and I just got back from 2nd outing. I actually made complete circles around large playground. Also started several times with no assist. I still got along way to go, but oh boy I am really happy right now. Another month or so, I hope to be proficient. Won't ride to work (too far) but will ride at lunch time to grab some food. And of course on weekends.

    Yup, got my 9B1 from New Egg. Excellent price for a first wheel. I took it outside for first time today. Tried to ride while my daughter enjoyed her hoverboard Christmas gift. Oh boy, learning to ride these things are extremely difficult for me. After first 30minutes outside, I was questioning why I even bought the thing especially something I can not ride. But I kept at it. Still not graceful on it but I can go straight for 100 feet and stop without falling or dropping the wheel. I'll go out later and work on unassisted mounting. Baby steps.... Merry Christmas everyone...

    @Rehab1 that's the exact same music Tesla used for their light show in the video @Tilmann posted in the off topic section. But this is way more intense. I've never seen a light show like it.

    That is weird, I am just about out of ideas, except one. Unplug and replug the batteries at the orange connectors and see if that resets it. After unplugging, press the power button for a second and then wait awhile before plugging back together. Don't pull on the wires, hold on to the connectors while pulling, they will be tight and might be hard to unplug. Oh, one other thing you could check is the wires going to the motherboard, to see if everything is connected and look at the motherboard for burned components, however that might void your warranty. I hope you don't end up sending it in for warranty, is there a Segway store near you that can take a look at it?

    Just opened the sides, things are looking pretty normal here. I agree that an empty battery on a brand new device would be a bit strange. It's also pretty weird that it is both not turning on and not charging...

    I'll just smile! I open it tomorrow, unfortunately it takes a while to learn, so I'll probably take the MiniPro for a ride instead hoping traffic will be really light. It was a Black Friday present, but that's close enough to Christmas for me this year.

    Thank you for your answer. I am unable to turn it on, so it is impossible to check any kind of status through the app. This leads me to assume the battery is empty. I've tried keeping this button pressed for tens of seconds. The dealer is the tricky part, they are on the other side of the country (Christmas present and all that), so I was crossing my fingers for any kind of alternative.

    God, I want a Tesla! Please, pretty please? Car show ready right out the door. Looks like it could fly with those doors flapping fast enough. @Tilmann please post a video where the code is heavy metal, or the Ride of the Valkeries. Thanks in advance.

    Nah, the batteries usually lose capacity slowly, years even, and by that time you should have enough riding experience that you shouldn't worry about it. They are already dangerous when new
  33. 1 point
    @TastyWithPasta sounds like it might be already charged, have you checked the app to see the battery level? The dealer I bought mine from charged it for me before I picked it up. If not, take it back to the dealer if you are nearby, you shouldn't have to take the charger apart, it is under warranty. I don't know what part of France you are located, but apparently there are a lot of EUC's there, check the French forums, or check SpeedyfeetUK.

    You said 3 minutes. Here is your chance to put your money where your mouth is. If you can post a video of you completing this task in less than 3 minutes I will donate $50 to a charity of your choice. FYI - I have done it your way, (I have the scuffed knuckles to prove it) like I said, it went flat again after a few weeks - hence I decided to change the tube. by the time you get the tyre off, pull the tube out ... work the tyre and the tube off the rim, pump air back in (to find the hole), turn the rim to find the hole, let the air back out, find the hole again, patch it back up, put it all back together, re-inflate. I have nothing against patches, I will happily use them again, especially if I am out / away from home - this video is simply to help others who wish to change their inner tube.

    cheating a little. This was Calpe, Spain, yesterday. About 4 times bigger than Moraira but still beautiful. Yes, those are people sunbathing. About 2 miles of lovely smooth promenade to wheel along, and lots of nice restaurants.

    Changing the charging port plug type of a wheel even twice is a terrible decision. That I find very unprofessional, even if they would have very good reasons for their last change.

    Thanks all for the feedback! Much appreciated. Concerning the European law which might allow EUC's limited at 25km/h in 2018 -> Even if that law is in place, countries can set stronger limitations. So even at that moment, Belgium (and maybe other countries) will still have the limitation of 18km/h. Is it a viable a business? I believe (and hope ) so. Today true, most EUC-drivers are mainly interested in them for their speed and fun. But as more and more people will start considering them as a commuter solution, speed will be less the primary reason to drive one. Today indeed policeman didn't stop me yet, although even some of them came driving next to me to check out my wheel and asked me questions about them But exactly as @Ponne says, especially if you ever cause (or are part of) an accident, then you'll definitely be screwed. And as EUC's become more popular, the knowledge about it will increase at law enforcement instances. Happened already in the Netherlands, where police stopped drivers and took their wheel. To end with some good news: King Song is willing to work with me to limit the speed without the possibility to unlock! I also contacted all the manufacturers of the EUC's suggested earlier. Thanks for that. If there are more quality-EUC ideas, do let us know!

    I dont think any policeman wil stop you. But, in case you are part of a incident were people end up with serious injuries there will be a big problem with responsibilty and who is going to pay.

    I think the manual calibration had a few other steps involved. From Ninebot: 1.Take the Ninebot One vertically off the groud. Take care and keep it steady. 2.press power button and the wheel will spin strongly,hold it steady. 3.when you hear a sound of warning(di,di,di) and the leds flashing red, - press the power button and keep holding the button until the warning disapear. 4. long press again and keep holding the power button till you hear the Ninebot to warning again. 5. Release the power button, and you will see a flash of yellow light which meaning your Ninebot is carlibrating. 6. you will hear the warning(di,di,di) with red flashing again - that means your calibration is finished,and the Ninebot telling you that it is off the ground which is not a good idea. So put your Ninebot on the ground and see if your it is right calibrated now.
