  1. Good deal! Thank you! Just snagged one for my 8 y/o who is ready for more than the dual wheel V3 I got him last yr.
  2. Rehab1´s accident(s)

    Outstanding work BTW!
  3. Rehab1´s accident(s)

    I hope you are healing well. Forgot to include the most important part of the post!
  4. Rehab1´s accident(s)

    I worked as a CFI and commercial pilot (small piston twins) for a while. I built my own ultralight airplane in my garage. I eventually also owned and flew certified aerobatic aircraft Pitts S2B, Extra 200, and Extra 300. 2 engine failures in the ultralight, one on takeoff below 100 ft, successful landings in both cases. Brake failure on landing in the certified Pitts S2B, that was scary but uneventful. Aviation is dangerous, but there is NOTHING on earth that can match it for the thrills.
  5. Rehab1´s accident(s)

    Just seeing this. Best wishes Rehab 1. Nobody gets out of here alive in the end. Sorry man.
  6. EUC racing?

    Anybody race EUCs? I race a Gotway Msuper V3 against my kid on an Inmotion V8, and he kicks my old sorry behind every time. I have the edge on the straights with top speed, but I lose the time on the corners. The V8 does not seem to need to slow down on the sharp turns nearly as much as the warthog gotway. Paved winding path through the woods with nobody around is ideal for EUC racing. Give it a try!
  7. Slime tyre sealant and punctures

    This stuff is more of a gel, I use it in my motorcycle tires, but have not yet tested it in a wheel. http://www.ride-on.com/bike-on-bicycle-formula.html You can carry a can of this stuff as well. It will add gas inflation to the tire while sealing it. I have tried this stuff and it works really well. Not bad a s a backup to an already slimed tire. https://www.amazon.com/Fix-Flat-S60136-Aerosol-Inflator/dp/B008YK4XLK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1511776658&sr=8-2&keywords=fix+a+flat+bicycle Here is a comparison of product video.
  8. EWheels 84v Fast Charger Review

    Great video, as usual. Keep them coming, well done.
  9. You need I.D. (that can be easily located by responders if you are unresponsive) and health insurance of some kind as well.
  10. Solar panel for charging

    The foldable panel would be the way to go for the majority of the charging, but a smaller panel that could be worn could feed the battery some juice while riding, extending the range. I will do some more research. Solar Bike: http://www.maxun.cc/ Interesting idea .
  11. Anyone try to rig up a solar panel to charge the batteries while riding? Thinking about an ultra long ride across the desert. How cool and ambitious would that be? https://www.reuters.com/article/us-race-australia-solar/solar-cars-begin-race-across-australian-desert-idUSKBN1CD04Y Some discussion on the topic in this previous thread:
  12. We've decided to take on The Man

    2000FT? You live at the end of a runway?
  13. Repairing MSuper Flat Tire with Slime

    Another alternative to slime is this stuff. I use it on my motorcycle tires. Seems to offer the benefit of balancing the wheels as well. http://www.ride-on.com/bike-on-bicycle-formula.html
  14. Ha! Ha! I bet his friends knew that hole was there. I sit typing this with ice on my wrist and elbow from a below 5mph fall onto blacktop trying to balance a two wheeled v3 on one wheel. No gear. DUMBASS. And I preach ATGATT in this thread every time I post!
  15. If you plan on riding on any uneven surfaces such as grass or off road, or on imperfect pavement, I would venture to say that there is a 100% chance that you will be thrown off your wheel at some point. You will fall. What do you want to contact the surface?
  16. Mten3 First Impressions / Review - BUY ONE NOW!!!

    Nice video! I am impressed by your willingness to practice skills in front of a judgmental audience. That little girl ran so fast when you dropped the wheel, even in slow mo it was a world record
  17. Agree. It takes time to get fully comfortable, but once you do you can fling it about like the most nimble of wheels. Love it at all speeds. My other wheel is a Inmotion v8 and the msuper is my preferred wheel. (I started on a v3) Get used to the msuper, it is like learning to do acro in a twin engined corporate transport deadstick. It becomes great fun.
  18. Iwant to travel thousand of miles by unicyle

    So it can be done, as long as you plan charging spots along the way. That may be the biggest challenge where population centers are far apart.
  19. Iwant to travel thousand of miles by unicyle

    Is possible to go coast to coast USA staying off the highways?
  20. EWheels 84v Fast Charger Review

    I had brought this finding to Jason's attention a while back. My solution to get the batteries fully topped off and to facilitate proper balancing at the 100% capacity was to purchase a charge doctor and use the charge doctor with the normal slow charger to get the final few percentage points of charge and to balance the cells, this after the fast charger charges to the almost but not quite full point.
  21. We’re getting bum deal, say Canterbury's naked bike ride protesters http://www.kentonline.co.uk/canterbury/news/were-getting-a-bum-deal-126228/ These guys have the right idea. No clothing at all is the safest way to ride any open uncaged vehicle.
  22. "I'm sorry but there is just no solid evidence that gloves prevent injury. There is no design minimum safety standard for manufacturers to adhere to either. I've seen injuries result from gloves gripping the ground on impact and causing twisting injuries. There are also cases where the increased padding connected to the ground when a bare hand wouldn't have and could have avoided a crash. I'll stick to wearing my helmet thanks, but don't you dare make gloves compulsory! " The above is a comment in section below the following article. http://road.cc/content/news/164652-why-do-cyclists-wear-gloves Why do cyclists wear gloves?
  23. What about gloves? Any evidence that they help prevent injury?
