  1. Buying King Song in NYC

    Hi, I'm looking to buy a KS-16s or KS-14s. I live in NYC and I found this site https://euc.nyc Did anyone ever buy anything from them? are they reliable? can i see the wheel before I buy it?
  2. Are the Ninebot One and Minipros legal in NYC, as in riding in the bike lanes? Thanks! I'm torn between these and an ecoreco electric scooter or an URB-E for commuting.
  3. I know there are many people who have posted their first days learning so I'm hoping this will entertain/inform anyone who takes the time to read! Quick facts about me: 1. This is my first time ever on an EU 2. I consider myself an active person; I love to play basketball and love snowboarding! I enjoy hiking, road-biking, and other active stuff 3. Slim build, I weight approx 155 lbs (70kg) 4. Motivation for the EU was for commuting to work in NYC (see how I came to choose GW14 here) and it seemed like a lot of fun Finally, I want to give shout-outs to Admin esaj, Gotway/Kingsong reseller Kevin Lee (kevin.lee@silverland.com.hk), and the many who gave helpful feedback on my post in #4 and the rest of this EU forum community! Day 1 Like others here, I was like a child on Christmas day getting my package - couldn't wait! Pics of Gotway 14 340 Hz just out of box and then with the pads. The whole process from order to door took 8 days! Ordered on 6/17 and received package in NJ from Hong Kong on 6/25. During my waiting period, I continued to do research and made some preparations. I realized I would benefit greatly from the GW android app that is available as it is able to set the riding mode (soft medium hard), turn OFF first 2 levels of annoying truck-in-reverse-beeps, and show your speed in km (which is important so you know when the 'shut-off' speed hits and you don't faceplant). B/C I have an iphone and iOS isn't supported, I purchased a used 4.1 android smartphone on eBay for $50 to use for the previously stated reasons and as a wifi multi-media device (but no cellular service - I like my iphone very much ). For protection, I borrowed my fiance's dual-splint wrist guards she used while learning to snowboard this past winter. Finally, before heading out, I watched this Ninebot One tuturial a couple times. I got to spend about 1.5 hrs outside. Luckily, I found an empty parking lot for a bagel-shop near my apartment complex just across from me and it even had a hand rail for me to utilize! Perfect as it was off to the side where I could practice without getting everyone's attention. I spent a good 45-50 min trying to just stay on and go a few yards. I tried to simply go back and forth and get more comfortable with the feel of the wheel while relying heavily on the hand rail next to me. I couldn't get on without using the rail for the life of me and really, I felt like I didn't make much progress. I also wasn't sure which foot to use as my "lead" foot when mounting. The dude in the above tutorial uses his right foot to 'Control the vehicle by one foot' and that confused me b/c it felt unnatural (I just realized now that he suggests using your left if its more comfortable). During this time, I kept thinking, in order to gain balance, you need to be relaxed and ensure your center of gravity isn't falling to any side too much. I then started thinking about snowboarding and back to when I first learned to carve. It made me remember how being scared always hampered my progress so I decided to stop using the rails. I then "lead" with my left foot, ditching the right foot "lead" approach. After a good 15 long minutes of frustration and no success, it occurred to me that carving in snowboarding requires you to lean your weight forward to maneuver your board. So I did just that, lead with my left foot, hopped on with my right, and immediately leaned slightly forward to move and gain balance and BAM! It all clicked!! The progress was very sudden, like Tellah learning to cast "meteor" all of a sudden (does anyone get that reference?). So for the next 25 or so minutes, I was cruising around in circles in the empty parking lot and it felt really nice. I saw my sister get off the bus stop a few good yards away so I tried to make my way to her and cross the street but sadly crashed my wheel to the ground and had to hop off. I def still have some ways to go but am very pleased after my first day! Can't wait to hop on tomorrow, I hope it doesn't rain...

  9. I bought my first wheel (ninebot E+) 6 weeks ago and have been learning/riding on my own in my neighbourhood. I don't get to ride a whole lot due to other commitments and have only done 65km and 14 hours ride time. Riding around on the streets of NYC is not the easiest for beginners and I'm looking for people to ride with and have some fun!

  11. Where to buy GotWay in NYC

    Hi, just moved to New York City and looking to buy a GotWay (not sure which model yet). Is there a place in NYC where I can buy it?

  14. Hi, I've not yet committed to purchasing an eWheel but it has piqued my interest. I am considering purchasing one for my commute in NYC after getting off the bus, which is a distance of approx 1.5 miles. Does anyone have any experience on how difficult it is to navigate on crowded streets full of pedestrians? I would try to avoid Times Square and the unnecessarily busy streets but as it is NYC, there's no such thing as an empty street during rush hour in midtown. Next, based on the threads I've read, it seems that the gotway 14 is a popular choice. Can anyone comment on which wheel would best suit crowded city commuting? would the GW14 be a bad idea here? Thanks!!
