  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?

  3. Hi all, Purchased King song 14c (800w) from Wheelgo late 2015, without warning the axle cracked approximately 3 months later. Unfortunately Wheelgo no longer trade from the UK, Jason was kind enough to send me the complete service manual, but unfortunately his suggestion to 'hammer it back' was never going to work. Dispite a number of emails to http://www.szkingsong.com/ they do not appear to be able to reply. Cost £895 Broken axle 3 months later cost/ time = £298 a month. I am also lucky enough to own an ips and ninebot, had no issues with these units. Liam
  4. Hallå Verkar ju inte precis krylla av dessa manicker i Sverige ännu, men kanske är det åtminstone någon mer än jag som har köpt en och skulle vilja träffas för en "körning". Jag är boende i Bålsta och har för avsikt att göra stadskörningar nu till sommaren med sikte på Uppsala, och Stockholm som främsta platser. Samlingstråd för Svenska EUC förare på detta forum är härmed skapad. Droppa en rad ifall du också gillar att köra EUC och huserar i detta avlånga land. Med vänlig hälsning Fredrik

    Hindley, Wigan, new group of euc riders, Hindley, SQ wheels, EUC group, we welcome anyone who wants to ride in our area, local or not 🙂
  6. I'm selling my 6 months old Ninebot One E+ It's in an excellent condition like new, lightly used with no scratches at all. Still 18 months remaining in warranty. I bought it for €750 with shipping to Ireland and I'm selling it for €550. In Dublin, Ireland.
  7. Need a wheel to learn on and scratch up before you get your "ultimate" EUC? An Airwheel X3 is perfect: cheap, durable, not too fast ... and did I mention cheap? This one still has a good battery (130 wh), lots of scratches but no serious damage, and it works perfectly. Foam has been applied to the sides but can be easily removed. Complete with charger, training wheels, and air valve extension. Tire is in good shape and holds air. Black color. $100 firm for local pickup (Tucson AZ) or $100 + actual shipping costs to you. I'll even clean the dust off ...

  9. It was my last long ride before I would grab the Ninebot One '5,000 Km' merit award. My route was some two towns removed from my home destination. I was planning a rest stop a few blocks further from the incident. Conditions were clear and traffic was almost non-existent in the pre-Christmas week before the holiday. Normally I would have continued on the sidewalk along the my direction side of the street before crossing to the opposite side following the end of the available sidewalk on the 'my direction side' Instead, considering a no cars at the moment situation and leg fatigue, I crossed into the opposing lane a football fields length from my usual Street crossover point where I often dismount and wait for an opportunity to cross. I hugged the curb within two feet on the road as shown with Google Street view. Within seconds a car headed toward my position within the same lane. The car , and I on the EUC, passed with a comfortable separating distance (in my opinion). However, upon initial visual recognition of each other in broad daylight and with no other cars in sight the driver of the car sounded his horn continuously. The constant sound of the horn was similar to the audio track a professor might use to illustrate the Doppler effect on waves as the transmitter and receiver of the waves approach each other. Any comments about the incident in the 30 ish mph zone ? Better to have not switched into the opposing lane ?
  10. Soon, we won't even have to "learn" to ride our EUCs. Just hop on and glide as you wish.
  11. Hi all, I'm reading allot of different opinions about EUC riders and what they value on a wheel and which use they give to it... although the functional design and characteristics of a unicycle is always the same. Wouldn't be a market for several types of unicycles? When I think about the EUC's comes always to my mind a Ford Model T, everyone rides more or less the same, there's not really big differences, except battery range and wheel size. What if we could have a racing wheel, an offroad wheel, commuting wheel, trick wheel, etc. No commercial interest from my side, just curiosity... but if all the business users can do something with the information i'm sure that the community can benefit. Thanks Regards, Pedro
  12. Thanks for your excellent responses last time - here's round 2... CBR
  13. Grüß Euch / Hi All, Deutsch: Ich würde mich freuen, von anderen Einradsüchtigen in Österreich zu hören, und vor allem wo und welche trails ihr so befährt ! Ich werde von Zeit zu Zeit ebenfalls Fotos und Infos von netten EUC Touren posten, die ich gemacht hab. Postet in Englisch oder Deutsch, wie ihr wollt. English: I want to start an Austrian group. Feel free to post in English or German (I live during the week near the UN-City in Vienna, and spotted some EUC riders entering it, maybe they don't speak German). From time to time I'll post infos and fotos about nice EUC trails here in Vienna or in Styria, where I originally come from. Maybe others can do the same for the areas they live in. Cheers, HtG
  14. It was June (2016) when I decided to take my Ninebot on a bus trip to Washington DC. I had put about 300 miles onto the EUC before taking the trip. I stayed in northwest DC at a hostel (Highroad hostel) and traveled via Ninebot to the National Mall along the Rock Creek bicycle trail. I decided to walk the steps up to the top of the Lincoln Memorial. Since I did not have a cable lock with me I carried the Ninebot up the stairs. After taking a few pictures inside the Lincoln Memorial while standing astride my powered off Ninebot I moved back to the columns atop the staircase and rested the EUC against one of the columns(4th or 5th column from the front right corner). Stepping back to take another picture of the National Mall a uniformed officer standing closer to the rightmost column approached me and asked if that 'thing', referring to the EUC, belonged to me. I replied in the affirmative and was told that the 'thing' could not be allowed up there. I picked up the 30 pound Ninebot and walked down the steps. Moving on to the Viet Nam Veterans Memorial before riding around a bit along the National Mall. The years since 1972 when my draft card was issued have passed. I was asthmatic and had allergies and got a draft deferment. Maps were something you folded up and put into the glove compartment of the car and not something from a device to which you talk too by saying 'ok Google map to the National Mall in Washington DC'. One of the Viet Nam Vets I saw at the memorial was sitting in a rubber tank tread version of a mobility chair. It was a great day aside from being asked to remove the Ninebot from atop the Lincoln Memorial. Almost seven months later, riding regularly in the summer I'm getting close to accumulating 3,000 miles on the odometer. My rider log tells me that I fallen at least 6 times with sufficient trauma to say ouch really hard and enter the event into my rider log of some 160 rider entries. I've read on the internet about 'ninebotvietnam.asia' and realize that the New Hampshire company that invented the Segway has sold its rights to the China manufacturing firm that produces Ninebot. My riding style has become fairly relaxed except for recurring signs of sciatic nerve pain running from my buttocks to my foot on the dominant mounting side. Stretching the 'piriformis muscle' helps when I pre-stretch the muscle before or during a ride. I sometimes laugh when I read about a rider falling for whatever reason and describing in detail the nature of the wounds. Just yesterday I went out for a long ride in cold temperatures where battery performance drops as compared to warm summer riding. I came to the highway crosswalk which I've used many times on the Ninebot. The walk sign turned on but at the other side the sidewalk was marked with wooden stakes topped with orange paint from a surveyors marking of an upcoming improvement to the shopping mall parking lot. Normally the 'S' like tight turn on the opposite sidewalk poses no problem but yesterday I hooked a pedal on something and went tumbling forward onto the ground. Breaking ones fall with your arms should be no big deal but as you get to about 60 years of age (fat in my case) the arm muscles become more accustomed to tasks like typing and right mouse clicking but not to heavy lifting. Sure enough my elbow hurt (strain not impact) and my wrist hurt. The wrist area under my work gloves, showed tissue symptoms associated with impact on a hard surface. OUCH!!! That's not healthy. I guess EUC riding is a sport where under the most swiftly changing circumstances falls do happen. I know I'm a competent rider and that in a few days or weeks the signs of injury will be mostly forgotten. But with unwanted pedestrian encounters where you end up answering predictive lines of inquiry (how long does the battery last, what does it cost, where did you get it, etc) while standing around trying to synch the bluetooth app to the EUC or where the threat of terrain ruts and bumps while riding poses a risk or while dealing with taunting exchanges from the occupants of moving cars maybe the EUC is not the ideal risk based sport for the average risk taking enthusiast. Accidents seem to happen quickly and in retrospect for very specific reasons. Ride safely and plan ahead!
  15. Hey guys, I've dug up an interesting piece of work that was unfortunately left unfinished by the previous designer team. The goal was to visually compare means of public and private transport to wheeling around Zones 1-2 of London. We have not been able to finalise the time of travel comparison, as it tends to be subjective around the busy city center. I am happy to evolve the conversation around what else can be put in such educational piece.
  16. Hello, I sell my XIMA LHOTZ - Shipping via DHL in Germany possible - or pick up near lake of constance. Details now in german language: Hallo, ich verkaufe mein XIMA LHOTZ 340Wh EUC. 16 Zoll, Reichweite ca. 20-25km (22km getestet, 80kg Gewicht), Höchstgeschwindigkeit 30km/h. Gefahren: knapp 400km. Zustand recht gut - wenig Kratzer, da kein Lernrad. Das Xima LHOTZ ist aufgrund der breiten Reifen und 16 Zoll ein Super Offroad EUC. Ich fahre eigentlich fast nur noch mein Kingsong KS18, da bei meinem Fahrprofil die Akku-Kapazität einfach nicht reicht. Verkauf nach Österreich/Schweiz: Nur Abholung Nähe Bodensee. Preisvorstellung: 600 Euro, 500 Euro verhandelbar 24.02.2017. das Rad ist immer noch da - daher 500 Euro
  17. Dear all, My 12 month warranty struggle with supplier. Paid £825 ($1005) Inc Shipping. Unit: Kingsong 14C (800W|680Wh) Purchase Date: 6th August 2015 Perfect for 25 weeks. Ridden for 21 weeks (minus 2 weeks holiday + 2 weeks working away) Running cost / 21 weeks £39 per week. (approx $47) Previously owned: Ips - 1000+ miles no issues. Ninebot one - 1000+ miles no issues. Powerbrick failed - Emailed supplier October 2015. Email reply from Supplier (Company director) 'The first batch was pretty shoddy' 'Half of the chargers were defective out of the box' Unit fault- Emailed supplier 2nd Feb 2016. Scrapping from wheel, a large number of images sent to supplier showing foot pedal rubbing against wheel. Email reply from Supplier (Company director) 'is it a slightly bent axle causing the problem?' 'can it be hammer back into shape?' 'A bit of force should do the trick. You should be able to wedge it free by carefully using a chisel or flat head of the screwdriver.' Centre Axle Close up Unfortunately, mid Feb i was diagnosed with a seriously illness, in and out of hospital, doctors appointments... the Kingsong was the last thing on my mind. In June, after a number of emails from the supplier one of which i clearly remember asking him to take the unit back and rebuild it for me, it had been a long time since the unit had been dismantled, this request was ignored, the replacement wheel arrived 1 or 2 days later, after refusing to pay the shipping cost of £25. After another load of trips too and from hospital, doctors, nurses, etc. finally, I got around to fitting the 'new' motor, albeit some time later. Read and re-read the supplied manual several times The rebuild: Started out full of promise, rebuilt the unit in around 2 hours (took my time) Powered the unit up after fitting the very tight side panels, all the lights worked.The unit only works when it is moved 45 degrees to left or right. contacted supplier again, new board sent out - refitted same issue. Emails sent to king song 5x - Number of responses Zero Will post more images later for those of you who want to see in more details what $1005 buys you. To be continued.....

  19. Just did some testing on the range of my ks16b 840 wh LG, firmware 1.20. I weigh 70kg and started with 100% battery, outside temperature was at 91 degree fahrenheit. Cruising speed around 25-28 kmh. With music playing out of the speakers the whole time. Rode for two and a half hours straight with only a five minute break. Highest internal temperature reached 59 C end results when I got back home was 24 miles with 50% left. Just in time for the speed limiter.
  20. Anyone rides the Electric Unicycle in Malta. I ride one often but still I haven't seen anyone around. Would be great if we can meet up and plan some route. If anyone is interested (even without an EUC) please post below, I have a few ones here
  21. Had a cheap 3mph generic that would shut off, and a rockwheel gt14. Both low level garbage EUC. Rockwheel would cut off at full speed and I ended up selling it. Has the laws changed since the 2 wheeled variants caught alot of publicity in the USA? I want to ride it to work, mostly on the sidewalk. I need a powerful unit that can do quicker than running speeds with no shutoff. Cheers
  22. 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
