  1. Self Defence Options when EUC Riding

    You live in such a different world to me!
  2. ACM vs Luffy Vibration Test

    If you're after some fun, might I suggest... The short term effect of alcohol on EUC riding abilities, and how it enhances (or possibly compromises) your normal skill level. If it helps, I am prepared to assist you with your testing?
  3. Personal Light Electric Vehicle regulations (PLEV)

    The beaches were safe. That is, until @Sidestreet Reny "compromised" them for all off us...
  4. Personal Light Electric Vehicle regulations (PLEV)

    Unfortunatell there is no Wheelies video, though that is probably a good thing - those guys are so good, they would make me look like a learner. But I had the chance to try a few more wheels - just not the KS-18S. I also met Thomas (Wee Hwang) Hoon and his team, and learned about the upcoming KS-18L...

    Hey @YoshiSkySun... I found a replacement wheel for your ACM! I think you'll like the look of it?

    I understand completely. The majority of riders are on the lighter side. It's a bit before your time, but you may be interested to know that I have just finished a bit of a "tour" that included some wheel research and testing - the LA part of my trip was immortalised by @Marty Backe here (if you're interested)... Anyway, by the time I returned home I had tried (from the heavy perspective); Gotway ACM, MSuper V3S+ and Monster Inmotion V5F+ and V8 King Song KS-14C, KS-14D and KS-16S My opinion after all that would be that 14" wheels (while fun) aren't practical for "the larger frame." A 16" wheel is what is needed for better stability, without compromising agility. The larger 18" and 22" wheels fit better again, but are less flexible for different purposes. And of the 16" wheels, I would consider the ACM to be in the top 2. So a good choice!
  7. How bad were you hurt?

    Does alcohol count as an external influence?
  8. Somebody stop me! Crazy car purchase...

    But pickup trucks don't float that well...
  9. First ride

    And now it just becomes more and more fun...
  10. Gotway Mten3 time limited promotions

    I'm glad you didn't use them, because I did already (along with your credit card) and I wouldn't want them to get suspicious. BTW - If a package turns up addressed to The Fat Unicyclist, please just forward it on...

    Just for the record... I'm 6'3" as well, and I find that a lot of the trolley handles are too short to be practical. This is particularly true for the smaller 14" wheels, but even the KS-16 and MSuper are just a little too low to be comfortable for regular use.

    surely with some creative thinking and a wheelbarrow you can fast-track the next ride?

    Not yet... But I expect total failure! When I do try, I will video the attempt.

    As I live (reasonably) close to Baldwin Street (the steepest street in the world), if all of the manufacturers send me one of each of their wheels I would be more than happy to test them on it.
  15. The Photo Thread

    Well, if you're going to try to break all the rules, you should include the "Side Street Rene" factor...
