  1. what about tire pressure? My V5F+ wobbles under 2.7
  2. Occhio che le ruote non te le fanno portare in aereo!
  3. Io giro per strada tranquillamente da circa due mesi. Mi hanno fermato sia vigili che polizia e tutte e due le volte volevano sapere costi, consumi, se è difficile imparare, etc etc. Forse perché ancora se ne vedono pochissimi (almeno a Roma)
  4. "Less is more"
  5. In my experience weed is more usefull then alcool in EUC driving.
  6. @KingSong69 Is the new KS 18 already out? Do you have a link? Thanks.
  7. I'm in the same situation: two months with the V5F+ (that I love it) and I'm thinking about another wheel with different qualities (faster and with more range). I was thinking about the super v3 but I'm very interested in the (new) Kingsong 18 a. So basically I can't decide between the super v3 and the Kingsong 18 A. Any info are appreciated. Thanks.
  8. We had Berlusconi in Italy and now you have Trump. I understand your feelings and I'm so sorry for America. Good luck anyway.
  9. 64 Kilos, I can run (18/20kmh) for about 35 kmh
  10. I just cutted the original Inmotion box. Inside I used the same shok protection foam that comes from the box. It is shaped exactly to make the wheel standing. It looks awfull but it works great!
  11. Thank you all, I think I got it. I notice that if I put less pressure on the wheel and stop to think that I can fall, everything goes better. Another question (thanks in advance): what are the best shoes, in you opinion, for driving ecus?
  12. Thank you all for the advices. After a week with the wheel I'm able to jump on it and do the basics: turn, jump on/off and going slow. In the video (my little son did it) I can also manage my first little jump. My first considerations: The first half hour is a nightmare. After ten minutes, trying to jump on the wheel, I was very discouraged and I wanted to quit. It was very important for me to start trying to jump on the wheel because after that you realize that this is the most important thing to learn. I did not use any walls or belt or any help. It Is harder this way but I think you learn faster. In all the sports that I did in the past the only one that help me a lot was skiing (when I try to do slalom with the wheel I use the exactly same technique) I felt only once, badly and I was in my bed room. So my advice is: never try it at home! I feel comfortable on the wheel but if I go more than 15/18 kmXh the wheel starts shaking a little to much. It shakes if I do a very quick brake too. Is that normal and is just a question of time or I have to inflate more the tire? (2.8 bar now) Thank to this forum Im an electric unicyclist now. So thank you all again. IMG_0396.MOV
  13. Thank you all for your advices. I decided to buy as first wheel an Inmotion V5F+ (Thanks to @Jason McNeil). The wheel is just arrived in perfect conditions and I almost kill my self trying to test it in my bedroom! I'm very excited ad I will spend on it some hours next saturday. Just a question: it is better to use a belt/rope for practicing or it is better without? Thank you all again. This forum is really great!
