  1. Dream Electric Unicycle

    Let's put together a dream list for a euc. then manufacturers may use it to create a new product we like. So. an upper speed limit that can be kept in all conditions. up hill, flat, heavy riders, all battery levels. range at top speed in varied incline, ca. 100 km, not under 80km. top speed where tilt back occurs and you can coast in total safety no matter your weight or hill incline or battery level: 50 bose suspension system that eliminates or ammeliorates bumps actively or at least some suspension system. A way to just walk off the wheel and go into a store or to a friend without having to bend down and do anything and just step on again and drive off. Use of a belt to allow a lower profile of the wheel with a bigger radius wheel. maybe you can have a small wheel with a shock absorbing system. that would be nice because you can turn better with a small wheel. A wide tread for riding over potholes and uneven paths. keep the machine well under 10kgs. have a way of leading it around without carrying it. have a way of locking it so you can arrive in the city centre cinema and meet your friends without looking like a tool/doofus fool on a scooter/wheel in your hand. Charger must be integrated into the machine so it follows you around. Swithcable front and back light. side blinking lights/turn lights activated by some smart measure. kilometres range left displayed in big bold numbers on a black and grey 7 segment display. (kilometres left will be based on your previous driving that ride or all history or a worst case scenario of say 10 degree incline, full speed. ) Usb power, induction power and a normal power output plug. 110V/240V induction charging pad for your regular parking spot. a spiked tyre for use on ice in winter. no geared motor. only direct drive for silent operation. silent tread on rubber. Water tight unit that can turn over in a puddle and survive. must be able to run in sleet and rain. gravel, sand and snow. and on ice. If a battery is used, an insulating system or heating system that ensures maximum range available. cooling system for hot weather. preferably a mostly passive system. (more robust, less energy intensive and less prone to break. All of this has to be packaged into something robust and nice looking while remaining fairly anonymous looking.

  4. IPS i5 First Look! Ask away!

    I finally have an i5 in my hands! I wanted to make a post to document the process as I test it as well as to try and answer any questions the community has. If there is a certain test or questions please ask and I will try to get everything answered. Currently waiting for the battery to charge before I start recording and testing. Super excited. First impression is that it is unbelievably thin. The width is almost identical to a standard glass bottle. IBC Root beer tested. It also is definitely light, I haven't weighed it yet but the shipping weight was 22 pounds as a whole so it seems to be on par with IPS claims.
  5. What I’ve learned/Tips on how to learn to ride from my own experience. Gotway ACMs+ Here’s where I’m at in my learning curve. I can now ride for blocks on city streets and sidewalks. I can get on the unicycle freestanding without the use of a pole or wall for balance. I’ve only ridden 26 total miles. 1. First, know that you’re going to fall and then fall some more and a lot after that. At least I did until I figured out a few things. Yeah I know, kinda obvious. 2. Your legs are going to get bruised on the inside near your calf muscles. Also expect abrasions on your legs as well. I just ordered a pair of ProForce Shin Guards from Amazon. I haven’t tried them yet and may not need them now, but I’m going to wear them at least till my bruises are healed. 3. Don’t learn to ride on concrete or pavement. Your unicycle is going to get really, really banged up. Also, because … No. 1. 4. Riding modes in the app. I have the ios app. There is soft, comfort and power mode. I don’t know what these actually do, but perhaps they’re self-explanatory. 5. The settings you enter in the app seem to be lost when you log out. So keep in mind that you may have to re-enter them after reconnecting your unicycle via Bluetooth. Also, if the app isn’t on (as in you pushed the power button to put your device in sleep mode) it will disconnect from the cycle and although the riding settings seem to remain, the app will no longer track your progress (time, avg. speed & distance). When you reconnect, the stats are reset to zero. Except total mileage of course. 6. Tilt Up Rocker Speed: I didn’t understand exactly how this worked and it caused me to fall 10 times more than I should have. Speed and balance are obviously interconnected, right? I thought that as a beginner, I should set the speed to the lowest. But THAT speed is barely enough for you to keep your balance. The Tilt Up Rocker Speed is also known as the tilt back. It serves as a warning that you are reaching the maximum speed you set. It isn’t a speed limit for the unicycle and won’t keep you from going faster than the set tilt back speed. What it does when you reach your maximum speed is tilt back the pedals. If you disregard this, and don’t slow down by leaning back, the tilt back will get so bad, that it is impossible to keep your balance and you’ll crash (so in a way it does limit your speed…by force). If you have a tilt back speed set, be aware of the feeling of the pedals. If your feet seem to be tilting up, slow down immediately and the tilt will go back to normal. You can turn the rocker/tilt off and go as fast as you want. 7. Pedal tilt: My unicycle came with about a 5 degree upward tilt (toes higher than heel). I’ve read that some riders prefer it this way and others say the pedals should be calibrated to as near level as you can get. I use the iHandy Level app on my iphone. I’ve tried it with the pedals inclined, level and declined. I didn’t notice much of a difference, so I’m sticking with level for now. One last thing about tilt. Setting the pedals at a decline will not keep the pedals from tilting back once your reached speed. The unicycle will continue to tilt back to the point you can’t keep your balance regardless of how much of a decline you calibrate your pedals. 8. Calibrating the pedals: Make sure your unicycle is on and connected to the app. a. Press the cog wheel (settings) in the upper right corner of the app. b. Select Calibration setting. c. You will get a warning pop-up, just press okay. d. You’ll hear 3 beeps and the gyro in the wheel that keeps it stable will disengage and the wheel will move freely back and forth as it does when it’s off. e. Place a level on a pedal or eye it and hold the wheel steady, tilting backward or forward to where you want the angle of the pedals set. f. Hold the wheel at that angle and press the on button to turn the unicycle off. g. Keep holding the unicycle at the angle you want and press the on button again. h. You’ll hear a succession of quick beeps and then a long steady beep. i. Turn the unicycle off again. j. Now the angle is set. k. Turn the wheel back on and the gyro will settle at the new angle. I think I’ve found the best way to learn to ride. It only took me a couple of hours over two or three days to advance to where I’m at today. Which is still novice. But I’m riding it. Yay! 1. I took my GotWay Unicycle to the local park. 2. I found a nice thick grassy area that had a nice straight path. Learning to ride in the grass has several benefits. a. I could crash at 20 Kpm/hour and not get hurt. Grass stained yes and bruising of my inner calf muscles from gripping the wheel and abrasions when making contact with the wheel while falling. Hence the shin pads. b. The unicycle won’t get beat to hell from bouncing on pavement in a spectacular Indy-500 like crash. c. The uneven terrain, bumps and the unexpected hole is great for learning to keep balanced. Once I learned to keep my balance in the grass, the street was cake. 3. I balanced myself on the pedals using a post or fence. 4. I set the power setting to Power Mode and I turned off the Rocker/Tilt back speed. 5. I leaned forward and allowed the speed I acquired to help my balance. 6. I rode from one pole, tree or fence to another and back and forth. 7. After I was good at this and could ride around the entire park in the grass, I worked on getting on the unicycle free-standing. It came surprisingly easy. The first time I tried it, I got about two feet before falling over. 8. I’m right footed, so I kept my right foot on the pedal and leaned the cycle over until the other pedal was an inch or so off the ground. You’ll feel the balance point. 9. I kept my left foot as close as possible to the left pedal, either directly next to it or a little behind. 10. I then quickly lifted my foot onto the pedal and leaned forward for speed and balance. I had a tendency at first to go left instead of straight, but after practice I got better. I just repeated this process over and over. The third phase was learning to ride on the sidewalks that twisted and turned through the park. To slow down for making corners, I found that rocking myself backward (slow) and forward (speed) to nail a good balanceable turning speed worked for me. It’s sort of like pumping the brakes on a truck while driving down a steep decline. I also learned how to bend my knees to accomplish sharp turns at slow speed. These are some of the things that I wished I’d known at first. For new riders, hopefully, this will help overcome some aspects of the learning curve that I went through. For the experienced rider, please comment, correct or add as necessary.
  6. Saying hello

    Hello everyone, First post here, first time EUC owner. Just got a Ninebot One C+ on Thursday from New Egg. Have been enjoying watching youtube videos of excellent EUC riders and reading posts here.. Nice community with lots of information. I chose the Ninebot One C+ because of excellent deal from New Egg and the fact that the Ninebot seems to pretty good ratings here. I have tried only a few times to ride the NB1 indoors.. It really is way more difficult than you guys and gals make it look on those videos. I'm hoping for some good weather here soon to take it outside.. Winter in Md is not too kind for outdoor activities though. I have not seen any EUC riders here in Frederick, Md so I just might be the first, if I can learn to ride the thing. At the age of 47, I'll be taking it easy though. Looking forward to getting proficient. -Sam
  7. Hello to all KS owners&lovers and not only I have one more week before separation with my lovely generic EUC. An eager nephew wants to buy it from me...he learned to ride it in less than an hour and naturally fall in love with it I'm following the path of many of you to start with a cheap generic one as a test and after that considering to buy the "real deal". This forum is a precious source of information for EUC connected issues and I was quite aware since the beginning which brand has the best for me technical features - KS. But I spent quite a time glued to the screen with the picture of Inmotion V5. Also at some point I considered buying IPS Zero...all in all I feel like I prefer that round shape as it looks more futuristic and far away from any kind of vehicle. But the passion from the outside look is one thing, my cold male logic mind is speaking something else. While I cannot afford to buy sport car, I can satisfy those entertainment (and not only) needs with the most powerful EUC - KS 800W. Thanks to @Jason McNeil I learned that KS are the most reseller/client responsive company who pay attention and take actions to improve their product. I think that such a company deserves honor and award in the form of more client's money Thanks to such honest distributors as Jason and @KaleOsaurusRex we are familiar with so many details about KS developments. Here I would like to express my special appreciations to @esaj His overall forum contribution is immense and knowing that this is for free I'm asking myself - how such guys could manage their time schedule working something else for a living and doing such a great work just for free. One answer that come across my mind is that such talented men are making enough for living only using one or two of their skills...the rest is for fun and self-actualization Many thanks to the forum contributors concerning KS reviews and issues - @John Eucist @Cloud @Henrik Olsen.....all. My EUC choice is KS 14C 800W, the bigger the better battery, preferably white color like the one that @Michael Vu shows us very well here: Now, after I finally decided the brand and the model, next stage is where to buy it from. For the "real deal" EUC I would definitely prefer to have a warranty and after sales customer support. For now, I'm considering the options to connect with the manufacturer in China (obviously after their holidays), or from Netherlands, France...I'm not sure and would appreciate advices and recommendations. All the best! added...just have seen all black version wich I also liked

  10. Greetings from Uniwheel Team

    Hello Everybody! My name is Eryk and I am the Engineering Project Leader behind Uniwheel. I have spent the past two years building our team to help us deliver the best last mile personal transportation device. Our team has very high aspirations as we all come from very competitive and professional companies our aim is to change the EUC market and make it on par with the 21st century. We are just about to finish our R&D activity on our first product, we know its limitations but we count on the support of the community to help us overcome those and create the product we all have dreamt of. I would like to assure that all of our R&D team ride the uni at all possible times, I personally ride it to work daily [17km round trip], our lead mechanical engineer Kevin gave up walking over 8 months ago and always fights to get his wheel to ride home... as well as the other team members who are in charge of UI, Design and Accessories are all power users of the wheel! We have a good idea what makes a good uni it just takes time to make sure it lives up to our high expectation level before we are ready to release it to public. Thank you for your interest and we welcome your feedback Eryk
  11. So I recently purchased the new S.U.V. hoverboard with 8 inch wheels, and since I already had the original 6.5 inch board I figure I would be the best person to review it. I found that the SUV was much more capable, smooth, and easier over bumps and cracks. As well as being much better on gravel, grass, and other off rad applications. However, the suv rides much higher and feels more awkward to ride. All in all I do prefer the SUV model, however I over paid. I think it is only worth about 60-100$ more. I also made a video for comparison, feel free to check it out through the link below.

  14. IPS or Kingsong?

    Im looking into purchasing my first wheel i've narrow it down to the kingsong or one of these 2 IPS, is this site the resellers of IPS? if not , where can i purchase the IPS zero? my daily use of the wheel would probably only consist of getting around on campus and a very small amount of side walks. http://www.electricunicycleonline.com/ips-i130-30km-h-130wh-electric-unicycle.html http://www.electricunicycleonline.com/ips-zero-14-inch-30km-h-260wh-electric-unicycle.html thanks
  15. Ninebot One E+ - Mobo 1.3, Firmware version 1.3.0, About 550 miles on it, and it has scratches from the adventures I've gone on it. The battery had a wire that broke that prevented it from being charged, however it was a minor thing to fix and it has been repaired, and it charges perfectly. Everything works well on the bot. It comes with a new trolley handle and a new Cyan colored Shell. You will also receive the older original white shell as well. To be clear, this is for sale within the US only, and shipping costs are on your end.. Old post contents (on Ninebot One P - It has been sold): Alright, so I've decided that I will sell my new Ninebot One P since I received my King Song 14C and there is no reason for me to keep two powerful wheels. If anyone is interested in buying a new P (Only road it like 25 miles - that's what the odometer says, and took some pictures of it to post here on the forums), then let me know. Everything that it came with is included (Box, charger, etc). I literally just got it on Sunday 11/29, and barely used. You can see the info at the below link:
  16. New Msuper

    Just received my new msuper, wow this is big and sweet. I arrived home to late to go out and try it (yes it was killing me), but it works out as it was dead, and I had to install the app and so on. I currently ride an Airwheel X8 and an Airwheel Q1, I read a lot of the post here and I must say very helpful guys, no manual with my delivery. I'm going to go out and try it, calibrated and I'm in madden mode..I will report back if I haven't killed myself...:)
  17. Not working and beeping

    Hello Everyone, I recently bought a Chinese unicycle online, as soon as I turned it on for the first time it started beeping continuously with the battery LEDs ON as shown on this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=btRw1epMNdM I already tried fully charging it and calibrating it, nothing worked so far... Please, if anyone have any further information on how to solve this, share it. Thank you all in advance.
  18. Wheel selection

    Hello all, I've been reading alot about electric unicycles and I'm super excited to get one myself! Now, I'm just a student, therefore my budget isn't high, €400±50. I had a few questions regarding the electric unicycles: I live in The Netherlands Eindhoven, so it can be quite rainy here, especially during this season, does this affect the unicycles alot? Are the wheels from €400±50 good enough? I'm mainly just going to use it in my freetime for fun and probably to uni which is like 1km to uni, 1km on campus and 1 or 2 km back. Is it usefull for getting groceries? Lifting the thing with you in the supermarket and riding it back with a heavy bag in your hand? It will probably unbalance me quite significantly, right? At the bottom of my post you'll see some wheels I've been looking at. I was wondering where I could buy one with good support. The banggood one was the first one I found, but I'm scared the support is bad and I'll stuck with a broken wheel and no way to fix it since it's all the way in China. Any first hand experience stories would be great aswell Thanks in advance!

  19. I myself was too late for the first batch. Second batches are scheduled to ship in November. Good luck for those who have already ordered.
  20. New and looking for a cheap wheel that wont try and kill me. I have had, hell of a time... looking for wheels on all these Chinese sites and amazon.. they all look like cheap knock-offs. I am getting frustrated finding official websites that would offer returns or at least stay in business long enough for me to buy a replacement air tube for the wheel. I am looking to spend around 300-500 on a wheel. I read on the forums that Gotway, Inmotion, IPS, King Song, Ninebot, Solowheel are the safest. I also read to find the largest battery possible. I am looking for something to learn on, short rides around the park/walk small off road on the grass. Maybe if i get into it longer rides. IPS i260 14" is the best site i have found so far for a wheel in my price range. Anyone have any other suggestions? Thanks Spike
  21. NYC authorized seller?

    Hi, I'm from NYC and I am looking to purchase my first unicycle! Thus far it seems that a Ninebot E+ seems like a good choice that can ride for a long distance.would love to know your experience about it) Does anyone know a authorized dealer that is US base? Are any of these legit sellers? Thanks in advance! ride on! PS does it do well over bumps? http://www.ninebotus.com/ http://www.hoodriderz.com/
  22. Hi, I'm looking for an EUC to commute to work (Central London) on a daily basis and was wondering what kind of battery / wheel size / brands I should get. The commute is within walking distance, so I'm not too worried about it running out of charge. In terms of budget, I'm looking for the cheapest/best value for money, but definitely not over £500. I've looked around a bit myself and found BINGS at around £300; this is the cheapest one I've seen so far. There aren't that many reviews on amazon so I'm not sure on how reliable it is. http://www.amazon.co.uk/BINGS-Balancing-Turbo-Electric-Wheel/dp/B00PLDR9EQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1437208008&sr=8-1&keywords=bings+electric+unicycle Would appreciate it if someone could give me some advice. Thanks!
  23. New Post Button

    As simple as this sounds - I've just found the button to press for seeing all the posts written since I was last on the forum. So if there is anyone else in this World as slow as me, then I'm sure you will be most grateful to know that you need to click on the "* New Content" button in the top right of the screen under the 'Search' box! It will help me each time I come on here to know where I'm at! *I don't yet know where it's at on the mobile version though.
  24. Hi, Just joined this forum. Seeking veterans advice because of sooo many choices and differing reviews. After reading elsewhere I kind of fixed on Firewheel. Then I read the review here and now I'm confused. I would like to buy one that offers: 1. Reasonably long range around 20 miles 2. A battery that doesn't start a fire in my garage. ( LiPo or Li Ion, LiFe which one is good?) 3. Safe and long lasting at least few years on moderate usage like may be 3-4 times a week on regular streets 4. Under $1000USD I am not concerned about top speeds (11 mph is plenty) or too much climbing angles or off road stunts. I have seen some on Banggood.com and most reviews there are from new users who are excited about their toys, mostly reviewed them in the first week or two. So couldn't count on durability from those. Besides, all of them look COOL from out side. I loved the Ninebot looks but no telling of quality under the hood. Other than banggood, I don't know where to buy for USA. I'm not a person to open and troubleshoot serious issues if some thing goes wrong. I can swap a board or remove a tube but nothing to do with electronics. That's why I am seeking your senior expertise. Thanks in advance!
