  1. I went through the same issue with calibration when I got my V8. I believe I figured it out. What I did was set the pedal angle in the app to 0.0. I then used an actual level which I set on the pedals and pressed the handle button while physically rotating the wheel to level and then pressed the correction button in the app. This seemed to cause the wheel to sit level. I then adjusted the angle in the app to basically match the neutral position on my ninebot one since thats what I'm used to. Seemed to work for me because the wheel felt very odd and difficult to ride at first. After going through the above steps, it feels great now.
  2. Its definitely good insurance yo have some slime in your tires. Got some in my truck tires with great results. I used to constantly get nails and subsequently flat tires. Since using slime I rarely put air in my truck tires. Before I had to put air in at least once a week.
  3. Damn. I'm glad i got my V8 when i did. I hope the parts continue to be stocked.
  4. I say V8, but as a lighter guy you probably like either wheel. But i feel that the V8 is incredibly nimble, especially after learning on a ninebot 1. I personally cant imagine having a wheel that is more nimble than the V8. I say go for stability with the 16 inch wheel.
  5. Damn. Glad you were protected. Must totally suck getting such a nice wheel with that issue.
  6. Got to work . Be safe and have fun!
  7. Pretty much exclusively a leisure rider, but would like to do group rides some day. Maybe some tricks eventually as well.
  8. Congrats! I'm rooting for you guys. You gotta do what you love. I also appreciate you spreading the word. So many people have never even seen an EUC, therefore there is a ton of room for potential growth. The moment I first saw one I knew I would be getting one. Now I have 2 and if I had the time, I'd be getting one or two more for sure. Get the word out there and I'm sure you'll generate sales. Best of luck!!
  9. Both great options. Best bang for the buck is probably the V5 since you dont seem to need the range.
  10. Wow. Thats great for your first steps. I was nowhere near there at first. Probably took me a week to be that comfortable. Great work!
  11. Glad you're safe.
  12. That's hilarious!
  13. I started on the minipro and now have 2 unicycles and while I prefer the unicycles most of the time, I still enjoy the minipro. I'd definitely get one for $500.
  14. Welcome to the forum. I too was bit by the bug not too long ago. I also have a V8 and love how agile and smooth it is. Sounds like you live in a great place, I'm a little jealous. My V8 is a couple of weeks old and I barely have 10 miles on it. Like Keith said, practice emergency maneuvers just in case. I try and practice mounting and dismounting while riding very slow just so I don't look dumb while waiting at stop lights. Idling is another good skill to practice (basically moving back and forth in one place without putting a foot down). I find that idling helps to improve your low speed balance big time. Enjoy!
  15. I've gotta work. . Have a safe ride! One of these days.
