  1. After not being on the E+ for so long I finally had to get back on it. But I realized I was only going 22km before pedal tilt back. I remember being able to go 24.8km before tilt back...did that happen? Or did an update decrease the speed?
  2. SOLD Selling my Ninebot one E+ it was purchased on the 24th of January 2017 from speedyfeet. Asking £550 but open to sensible offers. Free postage for UK purchases but for Europe the postage cost will be covered by the buyer. Done 146.95 miles on the unit. I fitted grip tape the the foot plates gives much better grip. Comes fitted with a Schwalbe Mad Mike tyre but will include original tyre. Has a scuff on one of the leg support covers (see picture) and a few on the foot plates and on led ring but nothing major. Will come in original box with charger and the included green protection foam. Any questions please ask. Thanks Dan
  3. TL;DR: Don't believe the range reporter, don't start a trip when the battery drops below 50%, and try not to push over 12 mph. Today, I decided to do a 4.5 mile ride on 50% battery. It was over flat road and the distance estimator said 9 miles, so I figure I was OK. It was smooth sailing for the first 3 miles. I ride pretty fast and my NB beeps at me to slow down, which I do, but after 3 miles the unit was down to about 25% battery and it I started getting a lot of beeps and tiltback way more extreme than the normal tiltback I get when I break 12mph. It got so bad at one point that I almost had to stop. I tried putting the speed limiter on, but it didn't really help. I basically had to limp home at about 3-6 mph. At home, the battery was around 10%. When I checked, the unit temp was 120F, which I guess is pretty hot. Ambient temp was 60F. I'm 6'2", and weigh ~230 lbs with all my gear and backpack, which is getting up there, so I think this is what I get by pushing the unit a too hard. So the big lesson is that the 9B range is probably half what is advertised for a person my size. -e
  4. Since lunchtime, my Ninebot E+ will not turn on by pressing the on/off red button. This occurred after a reasonably rough drop off a sloped box on to which I had hopped on to. Occasionally if I press the button the red ring lights will come on for around 20 seconds (but the NB does not function), after which the lights go off again. The only way I can get the NB to turn on is by disconnecting the battery and reconnecting the battery. On reconnecting the battery, the NB turns itself on and functions normally. Once on, the on/off red button appears to turn off the NB normally but, on further investigation the control board still has power as a blue light is still on and there is a red light flashing (although the self balancing has been turned off). I have performed a basic inspection of the connections (and condition of the wires) between the battery and control board, the on/off switch and control board and the control board and motor. I have swapped the battery (both are charged) and get the same issue. I assume the on/off button is some kind of momentary switch? I will do some in depth investigation this weekend but wondered if anyone had any ideas?
  5. Just here to give my opinions on the Ninebot Mini and why its a more dangerous than any other EUCs and see if anyone else here agrees with me. The argument: Last year before Christmas I bought a Ninebot Mini I had a go on it and realized not only was it less fun because you were required to go in a straight line but significantly more dangerous over riding any EUC. In fact I think the Mini should be speed limited to only 10-12km/h max and not 18! When riding at higher speeds and the floor is uneven you are having to adjust your body to the way the road is. For example when you ride on a slope where your only ONE of your wheels are lower or higher you would have to tilt to the direction that is higher to remain balance. For eg: If you are riding on the side walk and on your left there is a wheel chair ramp making the left wheel dip lower than the right wheel for a short bit you will have to quickly adjust your body to the right so remain balance if you stood still you will lose control. The other concern is that when you do so to maintain your centre of gravity you could knock that pole that controls the left or right, this has also become a major issue when riding on uneven surfaces. Unlike riding on an EUC the centre of gravity is between your foot at the point where the wheel hits the floor making it easy to glide over rougher terrains. On the Ninebot mini you are forced to adjust your body to the way the terrain is much more than what is required from an EUC. The benefit however of the Ninebot Mini is that you are able to pick it up quickly, and stand in place really easily. In short...after owning the Ninebot Mini I quickly sold it(without even owning it for 2 weeks) knowing the dangers that would possess with it and made a hefty profit during the Christmas season. My first actual post on the forum, thanks for reading Jack
  6. Hi all, I'm seriously thinking about getting a ninebot one e+ or maybe s2 when I can get some proper reviews and specs for it. So my question that I hope some of you can help me out with is speed vs rider weight. E+ is supposed to go somewhere between 18 and 22 KM/H so what should I expect if I'm around 90kg /200 pounds? The second questions is how 20 km/h feels... I mean if I want to use it for commuting 20 km/h is needed but can I actually (after some training of cause) use that speed without getting a close to death experience each morning? It's really hard to tell when you're not able to try one out, as a matter of fact I have never even seen one live so I hope someone can help me out here Thanks /JB
  7. I thought it might be useful to have a checklist thread in the Ninebot section. This is a checklist for Ninebot E+. Some of this may or may not apply to other electric unicycles. This is intended to be helpful - please feel free to correct me or add anything else that you think might be useful. I have owned my Ninebot One E+ for round about 12 months, ride it every day (UK weather permitting) and think it's a fantastic machine when ridden sensibly and within the rider and machine limits. For me, one of the big selling points of the NB E+ is that it is very easy to replace damaged or worn parts. Before Buying Read reviews, have a look at You Tube and browse/ask questions through this forum. Bear in mind when using any forum that there is normally a mixture of users - newbies, enthusiasts, advertisers, sellers pretending to be enthusiasts and perhaps the occasional troll. Some posts may be designed to sow doubt about a particular product or direct you to alternative products. Do some research on any related national and/or local laws and how these are enforced. Be extremely wary of any websites which have offers that are too good to be true and those with limited contact information. You can view a list of official distributors on the Ninebot website. Before purchasing anything that's relatively expensive, it's very sensible to have a good understanding of consumer protection laws that apply in your region. As part of the purchase process Get written confirmation of which version of Firmware is to be supplied the warranty period provided, and what is covered what actions may void the warranty (E.g. maintenance tasks, usage). confirm the supplier has the product in stock before placing an order (unless you are prepared to potentially wait). On receiving the unit Check that everything is in order and the unit functions correctly: Check Firmware Version - Certain Firmware versions are "Bad" - See notes below on avoiding the temptation to update firmware without good reason Check Battery - Is the battery as advertised. Has the label been tampered with? Check the Charging Port (on Ninebot) and the charger lead. Does the Ninebot turn on? Maintenance and ongoing checks Tyre Pressure Recommended tyre pressure = 55psi (this may depend on the actual type of tyre used - see comments below) Changing the pressure in the tyre will dramatically alter the Ninebot One ride. The tyres lose pressure over time. Doing hops or jumps may expedite pressure loss Doing hops or jumps at low tire pressures may result in damage to the wheel rim I like to keep a couple of spare inner tubes on hand in case of a puncture. If you need to change the tyre or inner tube make sure you have watched a tutorial and fully understand whether this voids your warranty. Battery Casing The battery casing can become damaged by repeated jolts and/or crashes - doing hops or jumps may therefore damage the battery casing. Several users of this forum have suggested modifications that may reduce or prevent the risk of this type of damage occurring. Battery Wires - can also become damaged by repeated jolts and/or crashes. The protective outer cover can split due to the high current. Connectors can be worked loose over time. I check the battery cover and wires on a weekly basis and always after a crash. Battery cover/leg support cover condition The battery cover/leg support can become damaged over time, especially if you do tricks. These are very easily replaced. Shell condition The shells can become damaged over time, especially if you do tricks. The bolt holes can wear though or crack. The shells can be easily replaced, although replacing these may void the warranty. Care must be taken not overtighten the screws or bolts. There are some useful tutorials available on Youtube (Speedyfeet have an excellent tutorial) Foot plate condition These wear down when turning corners and from spinning. They can also be damaged in a crash. These can be swapped over to increase their lifespan. There is a little grub screw that holds in the foot plate.This should be checked regularly to ensure that it has not worked loose. Foot plates can get very slippery in wet conditions. I check the foot plate condition on a weekly basis. Ninebot App and firmware When a new Firmware is available, the App will ask you on startup whether you want to upgrade. It is not advisable to upgrade straight away - some firmware versions have been related to NB1 problems. There is currently no means to roll back firmware - therefore the old adage, if it ain't broke, don't fix it is especially true when related to firmware. In the UK, the Speedyfeet website has a list of firmwares that are considered "safe". Ride Mode - This can be set from 0 - 9 via the App I have set at 3 and find this to be perfect for tricks Riding If you are new to electric unicycles it may at first seem almost impossible and then you will reach that first "get it" moment. There are loads of tutorials online. It takes most people an extended period of time from that first "get it" moment to developing stance, fine control and a good understanding of the limits of yourself and the machine. The first few months are likely to be the most dangerous as that "Epic EUC feeling" can overide common sense to begin with (that was certainly the case with me). Practising manoeuvres will improve your control of the machine and also help you to understand the machine and your own limitations in a controlled environment. Electric unicycles behave differently when in contact with different surfaces (E.g tarmac, grass, unsealed surfaces, snow). Falling off As with any wheel sport - learning to fall off safely (or as safely as possible) is an important part of learning to ride. You are more than likely going to fall off at some point in time, especially when learning. If you are going to do tricks then you will definitely fall off/crash as you learn. You should consider wearing appropriate protective equipment. My tip would be: don't go faster than the speed at which you are prepared to fall off. Other tips Be extremely cautious when riding near pedestrians - people who have never seen an EUC before may react in an unpredictable way. Riding in wet conditions can be extremely dangerous - other users of this forum have modified the foot plates to improve the grip in wet conditions. A trolley handle is extremely useful for taking the wheel through the public transport system. When practising tricks it is advisable to remove any accessory/handle brackets or stands as these can take chunks out of your ankles and shins. Be very careful when attaching things like action cameras to the wheel - if not secured properly these can fall off and jam up the wheel causing you to crash.

  8. My Ninebot One E+ (firmware 1.3.5) recently experience a complete shut down mid ride, resulting in a busted collarbone and surgery to repair it. I am looking to see if this unit stores any onboard data as to the performance of the machine. Sort of like an error log on a PC where we could see what exactly caused the unit to shut off. If it does, how would I go about getting this data off the unit? Thanks!
  9. Wow.... first off let me start by saying Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I wanted to also give a big THANK YOU for those who have dedicated time to provide detailed reviews and videos of this new fascinating and growing way of mobility. This forum ROCKS! I was lucky enough to find a gently used Ninebot E+ on Craigslist literally down the street from apartment in Hollywood, and at a price 25% below market, I knew this was my time! My extreme excitement is due to getting home yesterday and after less then 2 hours of practice being able to ride around without wobbling! I was discouraged at first when the person I bought it from told me it took him WEEKS to not wobble, but i guess the amount of research and videos I've watched within the past month, coupled with finding that "sweet spot" for my feet's positioning, led to almost instant gratification of my purchase. Granted my feet and ankles were sore today but it did not stop me for riding around for a few hours again (and going for another ride later tonight). It was really between the IPS Zero, IPS 260+, and the Ninebot E+. The IPS models would have most likely shipped from China and taken weeks to get here, so paying slightly more to have an item with the most support and replaceable parts SAME DAY was a no brainer. Now that i am fairly comfortable riding i am so glad I did not let my adrenaline junkie ego convince me that the IPS 30km/h was necessary. The 9bot looks so good, even with a few scratches just knowing i could replace that part of the shell for ~$20 is insane.The ninebot one E+ feels like a tank and is almost exhausting to carry (im a smaller 160lbs guy). My weight also played a factor into the fact that I could never see myself depleting this batter on one ride. Unless my feet get extremely comfortable while riding, i rode it for nearly 3 hours and the battery was still at 75%?! For anyone who knows hollywood and the surrowding areas, i took it up the super steep hill going up to Universal Studios and it was chuggin along @ 10mph just fine (videos to come later, they are doing alot of construction in preperation for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter :D) Anyway, i just thought I would leave an initial impression and share my excitement for this revolutionary new mode of transportation for me. I honestly contemplated ordering a pizza to carry out but the site of me carrying a pizza box on this thing was just too much for day 2 LOL. Thanks again everyone for your input and knowledge, and look forward to posting some epic vids and contributing more in the future. - Elias
  10. Selling a Set of Training Wheels for the Ninebot One E+ Brand New!! Will fit other One Models Including P, E, & C $65 Shipped to the Lower 48 PM me with any questions Thanks
  11. Thought of decorating my Ninebot One so I dug up some vinyl wrap from our storage and installed the purple ring plates that came with my unit. The result was not so bad and looks nice near the christmas tree.
  12. What is the max temperature a Ninebot One e+ can operate at. I think I was getting an over heating warning. I was beeping and flashing red lights on the lower half. I was practicing going back ward. So lot of fast stops. Not much backward yet. when I finally got the App sync to the Ninebot One e+ n20 Firmware 1.2.7, which was about four minutes after stopping, it read 155F/68C..After about five or six minutes it went green and stopped beeping. I tried turning it off on several time at first sign of beeping.Hoping to stop the beeping but it did not stop it. 20 minutes later happed again. I started riding at about 105F/40.6C then started to beep at 158.4F/70.2C about ten minutes later. I am at about 42% charge on the battery
  13. Hi - are there any electric wheelsters in the South-East of England, preferably within a reasonable distance of Windsor, Berks. I've got a Ninebot One E+ and have just removed the protective fat suit as I've gotten sufficient skill not to keep falling off. Can do tight figure of eights but can't go backwards yet. Plenty of tarmac near to me - Windsor Great Park and Eton Rowing Lake. Any interest out there. I'm a mature rider, but I won't say how mature as we're all young at heart....
  14. *** THIS HAS NOW BEEN SOLD *** I'm selling my almost-new Ninebot One E+ Unfortunately I just didn't get on with it and couldn't master it, so it's up for sale. (Reluctant sale, as it's a superb piece of kit!) It's only a couple of months old, very low mileage, perfect except for a few small grazes on the body, pedals and shin-pad but only minor. It was £600 new, but I will let it go for £400 to the lucky buyer, given the minor grazes. I'm in Cardiff, UK. Buyer will need to collect. PM me if you're interested.
  15. Hi all, I'm never ride an EUC and looking to buy my first wheel. I'm from Brazil, so the customs taxes are pretty high I have two options and would like to hear your opinions: 1 - local Airwheel reseller: X8 about 1100 USD 2 - Ninebot One E+ directly from Amazon/Ninebot: USD 950 (shipment include), when receive I'll have to pay about USD 650 custom taxes. Considering that if I buy the X8 I don't know if it will be possible to sell later here in Brazil, what are the main limitations of this model? Buying a ninebot one will be too much for a beginner? I've never rode and EUC, but my balance is OK. Always ride skateboards, slackline and etc. Thanks in advance, Rodrigo
  16. Hello all, I am looking at purchasing an EUC but would like an opinion on which one to purchase. I have had my heart set on the Airwheel Q3 for a while but now that I'm close to purchase, I have done some more research and I have seen the Ninebot One E+. Is there anyone who has tried both who can give me an insight into which one they believe is better? Or if you've tried only one, give me an insight into that one. I will be commuting to work morning and night. I will be travelling 10-14 miles per day on a fairly straight road with very little incline. Also, what is the lifetime of the batteries for each and how much are replacement batteries if required? Are they self-replacable or would I have to send it away? I am an IT tech so I'm quite confident with taking things apart. Also, if there is anyone who lives near Newcastle Upon Tyne in the North East of England who has either model, that would be willing to meet to let me try one out, that would be dead helpful. Thanks in advance!
