  1. After 5 hours of learning to ride my Ninebot One E+, this is the state my ankles are in: It's so painful to get on and off now that I have made some cheap ankle guards using materials I had at home. These are made from foam sheet that has thin plastic on one side, some Baltic birch plywood and some elastic velcro straps from the dollar store. These are worn on the inner ankles to protect against the constant pressure of the EUC when getting on and off and turning.
  2. Padding Mods to avoid pain!

    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!
  3. Foot pain?

    I'm a n00bie, about 30 days into learning the 9B1E and with about 30km under my belt. I try to ride at least every other day and still, after I ride about 1km, my feet start to hurt like crazy! The pain fills up the volume of each foot, as if all the internal foot muscles have been over-strained. I was hoping it would go away as my feet got stronger, but I'm starting to think it might be something I'm doing wrong, like using an incorrect foot position on the pedals. Anyone have any experience or advice to share on this? -e
  4. Pain in the sole

    Hi, I'm from Chile, and new in the forum. What do you do about the pain in the sole? How to muffle it? It start at 4 or 5 kms travel...
  5. I am finding it hard to ride my wheel more than 10 minutes due to pain in the foot. I'm trying to reason what causes it. My wheel has classic "split" pedal design. Is this design that bad compared to flat pedals? I have no experience with flat pedals so I couldn't conclude if the pain is from the pedal design. It's not both feet just one foot, I think it was the left foot. Some of you have several wheels with different pedals. Do you ever feel comfortable when you switch to flat pedal after riding the split pedal wheel? In any case, I'm inclined to buy my next wheel which has flat pedal only. Hope Gotway makes something like that. If not, Firewheel or Ninebot are in my mind.
