  1. The Flying Finn, Dismason

    Hello My name is Carl Irjala and I live here in the city of Kotka, which is near the Russian border. If you allow, I wish to start writing to you about my experiences as a brand new electric unicyclist. I'm a soaring pilot with several hundred landings behind me. So when I saw a video on YouTube that told that riding an EUC feels like flying I became instantly interested about it. So my first topic is about the experience of buying my first EUC and the learning process. The EUC brand is here in Finland so new that I had to search abroad to get reasonable information about it. My mother tongue is Swedish and Finnish. In those languages there is not enough information that would make me to buy an EUC. Luckily, I found this forum and the members' YouTube videos. Lots of sellers at the Internet do not communicates in English, so I was totaly dependent on the information you provide in this forum. Another matter that affected the choice of my first EUC was transport and tax costs. I have bought a lot of products directly from America and China, but sometimes the goods come with a shipping / duty surcharge that can be up to one hundred percent of the value of the product and sometimes not. So this makes the purchase a little risky. I found only one seller who provided clear information about shipping and taxation charges to Finland. After payment, it only took five days to get home the product from Poland (see image files). So in full, the whole process was quite easy. My next post will be a video about learning to ride the EUC. In that video you will see a whole new method how to do it. So, stay tuned on this topic. Kind regards Carl
  2. I've been riding the V5F+ for almost a year, and it's been great for recreation but I'm looking for something with more distance capability for my daily commute. I'm trying to find something with a bit more top speed to, if at least as a buffer to prevent sudden slowing, and preferably not too big and bulky. Finally, it needs to be reliable and safe. I've heard about issues with Gotway ACM involving the pedal breaking, so I'm wary of that one. Please let me know of any recommendations for these criteria for less than $3k, (preferably less than $1.5k if possible). Thanks!
  3. Hey everyone, I am trying to get policy changed in my county park system to allow EUC’s on our hiking/ bike trails. Currently they do NOT allow ANY motorized vehicles on the trails. So here are the points I can use some opinions on: 1. Their concern: Everyone enjoys our trails because there are no motorized vehicles on them. So, I need to explain how an EUC will not disrupt this atmosphere. 2. Their concern: If we allow EUC’s we will have to allow every other motorized vehicles ie E-bikes, handicap scooters, skateboards, scooters, Segway's etc. So, I need to be able to write policy that can prevent this. 3. I need opinions on what makes EUC’s different and superior to any other motorized vehicle. If anyone has any additional important points to add, please feel free to do so. Thanks
  4. The need for speed

    I was reading in another topic when I saw statements about the "ONEWHEEL" seeming to be slow. They go about 19-20 mph with the newest one being a little faster if you don't mine risking a face plant. The best selling "Boosted Board" eskateboard goes 22 mph. Most of the other players go 20 to ~ 26 mph. A few custom types do 30+. Escooters typically are in the 15-18 mph range with more powerful models capable of doing ~ 28 mph. The top models are in the 35 - 40 mph range. Electric bikes are mostly in the 20 - 25 mph range - throttle only. Gotway has pretty much made the EUC the dominate force on the bike-ways and roads. (If one chooses to use the speed). Other than the electric assisted recumbent featured in one of Marty's video he appears to be king of the road. Very few people don't want the availability of speed, even if they never use it. Speed is seductive, potentially addictive, and often abused. I am older than dirt, so when I got my Ninebot E+ on a super close-out deal around Xmas time, the maximum 13 mph speed was just fine. During the early learning process I didn't know it but it was limited to 6 mph. I never experienced a warning or tilt-back .. because I thought 5 mph was scary fast. Once it started to "click" I got my first tilt-back, read the manual and set the app (I had the require KM) for maximum speed. Now I ride with tilt-back occurring quite frequently, such that I handle it quickly and with little stress. I want more speed. Jason (Ewheels) has on his site that the sweet spot for the average user is 16 -18 mph. I believe this to be true and would like to cruise in that range. Gotway's range, not speed, is probably ultimately why its wheels stay in demand even with build and QA issues from time-to-time. If my E+ had twice the range I would live with it .. at least for another year or so. I , like most on this forum, am anxiously awaiting the arrival of the wheels from INmotion, King Song and Ninebot. I am, however, not looking forward to their ~$1500 price tags. There is nothing out there for me at a reasonable price. The V8 has insufficient range for my 240 lbs weight, the King Song 14s is to small a wheel for my skills and riding terrain. Only the Ninebot Z line offers me hope. I can live with the Z6 and with the Z8 for sure. What will they cost and how will they and the 4 inch tire perform? We shall see. By-the-way I am at a stage where I am starting to think about riding backwards .. Oh brother! That sound you hear in the background is cluck, cluck .. cluck.
  5. [Not sure if this is exactly the right place to post this, but.....] For anyone looking to sell a second-hand pre-owned EUC or PEV in the local NYC area, we've created an FB group: NYC PEV Marketplace FB https://www.facebook.com/groups/1835902416708701/
  6. Yearly EUC meet convention.

    How cool would it be to set aside one weekend a year for everyone to meet up in one location ?? Pick a city each year and we all descend upon it like an electric plague . Lol. @outcast00096 you’re “top 5 people you’d like to ride with” post got me thinking ..why not make our dreams a reality !
  7. With the higher speed monster, tesla, msuper, has anyone got rid their cars yet?
  8. So I’ve beem wondering a lot lately about the legality of EUC usage here in the states. I’ve seen the post about them cracking down in London and heard that China basically has an all out ban on them in public areas so it makes me wonder about the good’ol USA. I am aware of the law protecting Segways , granting them permission to be ridden pretty much anywhere an electric wheelchair can go and basically considering them to be “pedestrians “. I also know that the reason Segway-Ninebot was able to do this is because they limited the speed too speed of most of their products to 12.5mph (roughly as fast as a human being would sprint ) .So obviously most EUC’s wouldn’t technically fall in this category. I am the only person with an EUC in my town ...and as far as I know the only one in about 100miles . I commute to and from work everyday and the police office is 2 blocks from my house . Today I stared going and riding around the back parking lot of the PD/FD (they have cones and stuff that are fun to zig-zag through 😊) and have had really positive responses from them. Even passed out my 2 remaining Ewheels business cards to the officers tonight since they seemed really interested in the wheel . Offered to let them try it out but they said they couldn’t because they were on duty . So with that all said I’m just wondering how law enforcement in other areas of the county react .

  12. The following EUC Mobile App comparison was commissioned by eWheels.com in an attempt to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the major EUC mobile apps available today. [edit: this comparison was mostly focusing on Main Page Dashboard layout/ergonomic strengths and weaknesses, hopefully pointing out where key important metrics and buttons were missing and relegated unnecessarily to secondary screens / menus]

  15. Gotway Tesla - 680WH VS 1020WH

    I love my Kingsong 16s. Been riding it for about 2 weeks... But now my wife (who rides the NineBot 1C+ cant catch up with me) so am looking for something faster for her. So I found this Tesla. Damn... Speed is 33+ MPH. Not sure if I have the nerve to go that fast on 1 wheel. But sure would be nice to have that ability. And the 16 inch is preferred to me. Ewheels is offering a preorder of the 1080WH model. Am not sure if I would need that much juice since my outings normally only for 2-3.. may be 4 hours.. So I think 680WH model sounds more like what I am interested in. . Question is... What am I giving up going with the 680 WH 67.2V battery rather than the 1080WH/84V ? Quick look at the specs .. nothing indicates that I am giving up that max speed of 33+ MPH... Any thoughts ? Jason McNiels... if you see this.. I'd love to hear your reason for not offering the 680WH model at Ewheels GotwayAmerica has both models .. Price difference is about $400 .. pretty sizable difference. And for what I need (cruising around parks for 3-4 hours) I think 680WH should be sufficient and save me that $400 price difference.. Thanks in advance.
  16. Hey guys! I am still alive first and foremost. Still ride near every day. My appearance here has been pretty thin lately. Between work and the store I was staying busy, probably too busy, and to add to the madness I found out I am having what will be my first child in October! Hype! If you are local you may know we are still here. We have a small community of riders that is growing. We have people who rely solely on EUC for transport in our town, which to me is amazing. It is a blast. We are doing a little restructuring with inventory. We have a small mountain of MCM4's because people love them here. We brought the price down online because they are no longer competing online with our IPS wheels which will still be available as a local only item. We are also going to be out of the store for October, a much needed half vacation (I still work full time) as I get things ready for the baby and finish up a couple small projects. The online store orders will go out as usual and repairs and pickup arrangements haven't changed. We are going to be changing the store layout, bringing in more OneSeven Merch and T's (People seem to love our shirts and logo and we want to bring more of that online). Last of all thank you to the entire forum and those who have helped us with the store. Most of our orders have mentioned finding us through the forum and that is awesome. Also a few people have reached out to make sure I am still keeping on and I appreciate that so much. As an addition to the sale we are moving all of our display units for a heavily discounted price. They all have zero miles and will have new batteries installed (They just are out to look pretty atm and are battery-less). The only difference from new is that they have been picked up a few times and maybe gathered light dust. We could likely sell them at full price but that wouldn't feel right. If you are local we have the demo units too for sale. A few miles at best, mostly in our store with a few up and down a paved street. Message me about some local specials on IPS and used wheels. I want to hold a lot of our cheapest options for local only to get more community riders. OneSeven Store Page I added our local favorite shirt as I figured a few riders might want a shirt that no one else has. We might add a few small gear items soon. Gotway October Prices: ACM $899 for the display model (Only one available) ACM $999 ACM+ (84v/1300wh) $1199 MCM4 $549 & up Monster (2400wh) $2199 display model and our last Monster Super Amazing Ultra Rare Design T-shirt $17 Message me for local specials.
  17. KS18AY+ at the Beach?

    Hey all, just wanted to ask if it`s a problem when i drive my KS18 at the beach - not directly in the sand - were on a north sea island called "Borkum" in Germany for holiday (probably somebody knows it) and we have a lot of pavement besides the beach, but the sand is very fine and the wind spreads it also on the pavement. So it`s important to me if my KS 18AY+ would have any problems with sand. If it´s a problem i will not drive here...anybody experienced driving the euc on sandy roads? Thanks in advance

  19. Alright, after a couple years of owning the SoloWheel Xtreme, and many other electric unicycles, I gotta say, by far, that the Solowheel is the most difficult to ride, by a very large margin. There is no doubt in my mind that anyone used to riding hard settings on wheels such as GotWay models and similar would not be able to ride my Solowheel, at all. Why? Well it's simple, the MASSIVE lean. Accelerating/decelerating, my body leans 45 degrees! Compared to my Gotways which have no lean while moving. Or with King Song which has only like a 5 degree lean, no more. My Xtreme is very weak compared to my other wheels, such as the GW Mten3 and the GW Monster, but believe me, riding the Xtreme is SCARY. Oh boy... It leans like a motherfucker! Jumping down curbs with this wheel is just off the table.
  20. Gotway Tesla VS Ninebot One Z 16" VS 18" What do you guys think?
  21. https://worldbicyclerelief.org/en/ and there are many other similar bicycle-oriented humanitarian efforts. but we all know, here at least, which of the two to go with instead of wringing his panties along with putin over the AI apocalypse, mr. musk should devote part of his efforts, since batteries are a huge part of his game, to the development and permeation of awesome eucs and charging centers throughout the world!
  22. A buddy of mine has been riding his Ninebot Mini Pro daily for more than a year and he always complained about how slow and annoying because of the alarm and tiltback. Recently, he switched to EUC. He bought a BNIB Ninebot One E+ with NO modification at all. After learning and riding it for about a month later, out of curiosity I asked him whether he likes it or not, since I know that a Ninebot One E+ normally is not fast enough for regular cruising. But I was surprised when he didn't have any complain about its speed at all besides of the battery capacity, of course. Not even complained about any alarm / tiltback. At first, I didn't believe him. But when he showed me this... should I worry about him having a defective unit or happy for him for having the fastest Ninebot One E+ on earth?
  23. Hey All! One stop shop here!! Just as the title says, let me know what you have & need/want done to improve your EUC experience! Also providing maintinence plans & services! Talk to you soon!
  24. Hi guys, Looking for some advice really. Had my first crash today... Which I knew I would and was inevitable really. So firstly, I've set my tiltback to 42kmh using the Gotway app and disabled the first alarm. I was riding in a straight line, in a tarmac carpark and my Msuper decided it was going to chuck me off. I didn't hit any bumps, neither did my alarms go off. I didn't feel the tilt back come into play either so I was wondering if anyone knows the answer as to why I came off? I was sure the tilt back would let me know when I was getting too fast? The only thing I think it could be, was too fast acceleration?? Is that a thing? Secondly, can anyone give me advice with repairs? My Trolley handle came out as it was bouncing across the car park and has bent and will not retract. Annoyed! Also, when I turn on my wheel now, it seems to slowly tilt itself backwards when stationary? Any ideas would be a great help. Also, the wheel doesn't sit central. For the record, I rode it home fine, just a bit shook with some minor injuries. Luckily my wrist guards saved me, other than that I'm injured where there was no protection. Lesson learned. Please help, hate that I've mashed up my wheel after 2 weeks! Thank you!
  25. My First EUC!

    Hi guys, I've been following this forum for about 3 months, and decided it was about time I signed up and introduced myself. My name is Liam, 26, from Rugby, England. My post is really is to thank you all for the information that you've provided here, in various threads, as without it, I wouldn't have taken the plunge and bought my brand new Gotway Msuper V3! Going to share my experience so far... My EUC lifestyle started awfully, with an injury! I was so excited to have picked it up, I couldn't wait to have a go. Went out to play squash the next morning with the intention of taking it down the local park for a practice afterwards and ripped a muscle in my back playing bloody squash! 3 weeks my Gotway was here unused, but it just made my recovery quicker. Up and about and 15 minutes in I was rolling around the park at baby speeds. Covered in protection, I decided to go visit my Granddad at the cemetery and show him my new gadget. After an hour of riding around large and small pathways, over unmade gravel roads and through narrow gates and fences, I had it. I hear all kinds of stories about beginners and their adventures and I feel pretty lucky to be riding confidently around everywhere now. Only 5 hours ride time, but feel as though I've had my EUC years! Learning on a 18" Msuper was relatively easy. I felt stable and secure in no time at all, but also, I have never tried anything else. No injuries as of yet, apart from the pads rubbing my legs, but fully expecting to come off at some point. I have found the best way to look after yourself and your wheel, is to always remember the price! You don't want your expensive gadget smashing its way down the road like a drunken monkey! Happy riding! Liam
