  1. Please don't forget to turn on the video camera
  2. Great. I don't know if you've been in that area before, but the meetup parking lot area may be full today. But there is plenty of parking in the surrounding neighborhoods. For instance, I've parked here before: https://goo.gl/maps/zi5AeJU6Sd62
  3. The US was totalitarian? What history books have you been reading Maybe it's not politically correct to say, but I believe the western culture has been the reason for our dominance and I believe we will continue to dominate far into the future. Just my opinion of course.
  4. That was great
  5. My only fear for your wife, and I'm hesitant to write it, is that the 14C will be a more difficult wheel to learn on. It's such a squirrely wheel compared to 16"+ wheels. Just my opinion though. You obviously have more experience riding than I do so I'm sure she's in good hands
  6. I can only offer advice if you have a compressor. Here is a previous post that I still stand by:
  7. Is this going to be your first wheel? I would need to know a bit more about you and your wheel goals before offering any advice.
  8. We need someone like AvE to do a tear down video of the Solowheel
  9. Yeah, in California all the schools look like prisons. High fences everywhere and all the gates locked. Depressing if you ask me.
  10. Very cool. Thanks for letting me know that it's proceeding nicely. And congrat's with regards to your son. Youth has its advantages It's just going to get better and better. You'll be joining some group rides by mid-summer
  11. Your Internet connection must have been bad when you tried to watch this. It's in 1080p and is very sharp. Sounds good on my KS14C speakers.
  12. Have fun with it. I became disenchanted with my $200 generic when it cut out on me after dropping from a 1"-2" ledge, causing a face-plant and associated bloody knee and palms. I'm rather paranoid about riding it now and I'm not sure what's keeping me from throwing it in the garbage. Maybe just a little more time. Edit: With a clear conscious I'm not sure that I could sell it to anybody
  13. Lots of good ideas. I think it'll be years before the Chinese have the marketing and design skills to do this on their own.
  14. You're out of control I can see it now, retire early from EUC sound sales. I did want to pick a sound that people would think was actually coming from the wheel. Chugging locomotive? Not-so-much
  15. This won't be one of our longer rides - probably in the 15 mile range, and everyone should be back in their cars before it's dark. This was a spur of the moment plan, but I still announce them because you never know who might be free and feel like a group ride. No worries if you can't make it.
