  1. Hi all, I wanted to share with you the mods I've done to the two electric unicycles I've had for the moment by adding padding to avoid the leg pain we all experienced at the beginning, mainly when learning. Some may have got used to it, however I never did as after a while not being able to keep learning due to the pain, I found the solution, adding good padding (not the one that comes by default, not enough). So on my first electric unicycle, a generic one, I added 2x "bike seat gel protection" (3 Eur each, cutting the part that attaches to the seat), using mounting tape (double sided tape would have been cleaner), here the result: I think it may be the most comfortable I've tried. However, the pedals could not close completely and one got soft after some time and would not stay up. My next padding mod was when I got my IPS Lhotz, again it was painful as it only has a bit of padding on the top of the side and it is not very soft. This time I used the EPE Foam that came on the shipping box of the unicycle, some red plastic from a bag/folder for documents and double sided tape. The result, also comfortable, but not as much as the gel seats. From the video I've on YouTube: Here the state of it after a year, dirty and falling apart: Both the mounting tape and the double sided tape I used were hard to remove, so you better try it a bit before carefully putting it together Now I was looking for a new padding, I found two new options: work knee pads and knee-elbow soft guards/pads. The work knee pads are not flat, so could not really use them and also were not comfortable enough. I decided it was time to try the knee-elbow soft guards/pads as the were comfortable. The result is pretty good and they are comfortable! Let's see once I use them to go to work or for a long MeetUp ride how do they feel. Let us see your padding mods!

    I have an IPS 101 with the PCB damaged, Is possible put some Gotway pcb in a IPS 16" wheel?
  3. Have recently been bitten by the EUC bug and puchased a Ninebot One E+ couple of months ago. As I'm getting more confident, I am getting bored of the 20kph speed limit I'm getting from the Ninebot One E+ and was thinking if it is possible to swap the control board with this one: https://reseller.alibaba.com/product-detail/16-electric-unicycle-Controller-with-bluetooth_60288223259.html?spm=a2700.7724838.0.0.VsHfbJ Have seen other threads where other users have been swapping their control boards with the one from Microworks purchased from Alibaba. Also wondering if the motor for the ninebot one has to be changed to this: https://wholesaler.alibaba.com/product-detail/2015-New-Products-brushless-motor-16_60237639861.html?spm=a2700.7724838.0.0.XfG3kt What do you guys think? Any other peripherals that have to be changed as well like hall sensor connectors or the like? Or if this hack is even possible? Appreciate your comments. Cheers
  4. Well pretty sure my C+ has a 500w motor, kind of says it on the wheel, noticed it while messing with the controller, Controller it seems is ver 1.3 the same as the E+. Thinking of getting a 320WH battery for the C+ which I like best go figure rides better, for more range, and carry the smaller battery extended trips with the C+ or E+. Now I know I will get the E+ range with the new battery, just wondering if I will get the speed and power of the E+?
  5. As you may have already guessed, this is the Raspberry Pi corner of this forum There is a new board out there that can fit inside the innards of our EUCs with ease.. The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B I have already intergraded two devices into my house, one inside the electrical panel that controls my water heatsink and other stuff using OpenHAB and the other one sits on the livingroom connected to my tv as a media theater system (kodi former xbmc) but doubles down as a seedbox (rtorrent+rutorrent). And now to the thread subject, are you guys up to some geeky mods using a raspberry and our EUCs?? Before attempting to get into the raspberry wagon, there are some things need to pointed out : A way to power these little beast of machines using a pico-psu and/or others. A way to interconnect it with other devices, modding the case for ports, using wifi-dongles, bluetooth or cellular, etc Extra things attached to the Pi so the EUC gets extra functionality Known connectors for data transmission thru the Pi, storage and others. This is by "far" the best subject of discussion if you are up to modding. In my honest opinion i don't just do stuff by hand, a friend of mine does most of the wiring etc but i do the setting up, programming, etc. I'd like your honest opinion on the matter, and if you are interested please leave a comment. cc. @esaj i think you'll love this mod thread And forgot to mention the little brother of the Raspberry Family, the model "ZERO" The little guy that also packs a punch and can fit almost everywhere.. Just look at that comparison guys.. Now start imagining the possibilities..
  6. I'm looking for someone to repair & modify my two Ninebot One+'s. They've been rode hard but I know they can be fixed up. Just a couple of new batteries, pads and tires along with a good cleaning. One of them did get a good solid wreck, nothing serious though. I do want them both modified to the max as well. I'm also looking to get skins made for them if possible. I own a bar/restaurant here in Key West and I want our bar logo put on the sides. Anyone out there up for the challenge?
  7. Hey Guys, Thought I would share. 3D printed a body for my Fasion Micro Works Motor and Controller. I had to print the parts in smaller segments and hold things together with nuts and bolts but so far it's been working great. I took a couple of spills as well and it didn't do too badly. I've recently changed my design a little bit and am in the process of reprinting. Hopefully soon I'll have the new one together. My newer version is a bit easier to put together and is a little less wide for more comfort when I ride. Hope you all like. I can share the STL files if anyone whats to have a go. You just need to make sure you print everything with the Z axis as the direction of least force. So most every part on it's side. I was also running out of filament so the prototype ended up looking like a Jamaican Flag. Regards, Mo More Pics..
  8. Picked up some electroluminescent tape (red & white) from Tinkersphere in Manhattan. Ran the wire in the frame and connected to the existing LED power lines with a 12V inverter and some soldering. They are on when the LEDs have power, but can be turned off. https://youtu.be/_43grjw-YKk

  10. Hello, I am thinking of putting charger inside the shell. Is it good or bad idea? Why not?
  11. I had vacation this week and after a weekendtrip abroad I spent the rest of the week at home. I didnt ride at all and I kinda felt the itch to do something with my wheel. So I imagined myself some printed vinyls to stick on the bot. I had a few Ideas so I sat down and had a long talk with GIMP to get some mock ups of designs... I ended up getting something abstract but with color.. Strip it clean it: Roughly cut the vinyl into shape Wrapped and almost back together Thats how it looks tonight Still not decided what to do with the outer ring. Wrapping is very complicated, no straight surface. I think I'll end up getting some plastidip for the outer ring and once its available I'll get a semi-transparent one. Whaddya think?
  12. Hey does anyone know where to get a battery back that hooks up to the back of a ninebot one? Something like what's in the picture, which I believe is a battery pack.
  13. moded my Ninebot one to chrome and added led headlights and taillights pics included soon
  14. Hi everyone. I have a generic 500w 18km/h EUC. I recently bought a 30 km/h control board to see if I could upgrade the wheel to give it a higher top speed. Its almost worked. I found the correct sequence for the hall sensors and all leads are connected and new board is installed vertically as instructed. Only problem is the calibration. This board has bluetooth and no calibration points on the board. Calibration is done in the app, but the app is in chinese and i cant read it. I found a partial translation but even that is confusing as I still havnt been given clear instructions on how and when to press the calibrate buttons. It appears to be stable at vertical. I can lean it forward or back and it moves in that direction and ive even got on and rode a short distance. Trouble is when riding the pedals lean forward about 15 degrees and stay there while riding so i cant stand up straight. So its not really rideable as this lean is too close to the cut off angle. Heres some pics. And here is where I bought controller with instructions. http://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/controller-for-electric-unicycle-with-bluetooth_60244443124.html?spm=a2700.7724838.35.1.fs4wjj My wheel is generic, supposedly 550w and I bought it from here: http://www.dhgate.com/product/wholesale-joyewheel-newest-item-electric/213373049.html#s2-23-7|4222809817 Any advise or help would be greatly appreciated! cheers jay
