  1. KingSong Wheels Never Cause Faceplants - right?

    In that situation of going up a steep hill, I don't fault Kingsong or any other brand from cutting out like that. A blown fuse is still better than having to replace an entire circuit board. And I'm surprised that he actually did faceplant and was not able to run it off with how slow he was going. When I went up to the Hollywood sign, I was a little nervous when we first came up to those steep hills. We all made it but I will say all of the wheels we were riding were appropriate for our weights (~120 lbs rider was on the MCM4, 150 lbs rider on the KS16A, 200 lbs rider on the KS-16S, and me at 185 lbs on the MSuper V3s+). All wheels will eventually cutoff when pushed to its limits. Anybody saying cutoff is impossible is simply wrong. But the big thing you do not want happening are the random cutoffs under normal riding conditions.

    I posted this in @Rehab1 get well thread, but I'll also post it here too. In fall of last year, my friend and I made a little trip just to see Dan so we could ride with him. Initially thought we wouldn't be able to do it but in the end it worked out, and I'm very glad to have met Dan in person especially since we were the only outside electric unicyclists he has met or ridden with.
  3. Rehab1´s accident(s)

    Glad you're making a good recovery on your injury Dan. I've finally been able to compile and edit the footage from our small ride from a couple months ago. Had a great time and wish we can do it again if you are able to ride again. Monica also gives her best wishes on your full recovery.
  4. Paging Dr. Rehab1, another rider down!

    Damn unfortunate unlucky foot position the cause your knee to buckle. I've had my knees dislocate 4 times in my life with the last one just happening when I attempted to make a 180 degree turn walking. . Hopefully you just sprained your knee rather than tear any ligaments.
  5. And she says "Take care" twice in a row to try to get your attention. Unfortunately that wasn't enough to prevent my first (and worst) crash I had on an EUC.
  6. I noticed this too when I ride with my full face helmet and try to be extra cautious when going at higher speeds on a lower battery. I will also say that it would be better if Gotway included a 2nd speaker (possibly on the other side of the shell) to not only increase volume, but also have redundancy in case a speaker goes out. Kingsong's having 2 or 4 speakers is yet another case why Kingsong's are the best wheel when it comes to safety.
  7. Anyone ever used the Swagroller?

    I rode it at CES this year and last year. It is just a repackaged Inmotion V3 and their Swagtron's engineer even admitted so. It's fine for what it is at that price point.
  8. Rehab1´s accident(s)

    Dan, I glad your accident was not worse than it could have been. Sad to see you go though. I had a blast riding with you and should be able to get my footage out here soon so you can have that for your good memories that these electric unicycles have provided.

    While I was at CES, I came across a full face helmet with a built in wide-angle back camera that projects the video feed directly in front of you slightly above your eyes. It's something I've been looking for for a while and surprised it hasn't been done sooner. It is pretty expensive though (>$1500)
  10. CES 2018 Mini-report

    Good showing of electric unicycles @Jason McNeil with your booth even with the ridiculous CES security breathing down your necks. Swagtron, Fastwheel, Gyroor and other similar ridable companies on the Sands Hall A-D (2nd floor) seemed to have no security at all since they let people freely ride all over the place. That DJ that @Stan Onymous ran into is known as Spindizzy on KVEG Las Vegas and he works with and/or sponsored by Solowheel. I ran into him riding around on the 2nd floor Sands and had to literally chase him down on my Msuper V3s+ so my friend could talk to him. Great to meet all of you guys though and look forward to more EUC representation at other events in the future!
  11. The Photo Thread

    Yep you are 100% correct even down to the MSuper V3 pads.

    Rode all the way up to the Hollywood Sign today. And we had to pick the one day out of the entire year where it decided to rain. But our EUCs did an excellent job handling the conditions. Video coming later.

    It sure was a blast! You guys in California sure are very lucky to be able to have nearly perfect weather to ride in all year round. Here's a picture of our wheels together near the end of our ride. It'll be a while for me to compile all of the footage I have since I plan on shooting more the rest of this week for CES, but it will post the footage later.

    Nice meetup! I look forward to meeting up with you guys this weekend!
  15. Visiting LA

    Ok I see what you mean about the horses. Definitely will follow your advice. And thanks for the track. Hopefully we will have enough time to do a nice ride around Griffin park to Hollywood. No Monica. She is still in Ohio and hasn't ridden ever since the temperature has dropped below 40.
