  2. 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.
  4. $2,000 - Used black 2016 Solowheel Extreme (two available) for sale in Seattle Washington. Power cords included, Originally purchased from Solowheel Seattle Both Solowheels have been used regularly for city commuting (for 10 months only) and have the light scratches you would associate with that kind of use. We LOVE these machines and are only selling because we will be spending the next year or two abroad. We hate the idea that the lithium batteries will conk out while our wheels are in storage! It's better that someone else can enjoy them while we are unable. For photos of the actual two devices please email me directly cross@spiderbox.design , also happy to answer any questions.
  5. Wondering if there is a comparison at all. Just tell me that my InMotionV5F+ is better ( just riding experience not the details) than Solowheel at a cheaper price. That makes me feel good and intelligent.
  6. Read the story. I guess Solowheel is not dead. http://newatlas.com/inventist-solowheel-iota/47563/?utm_source=Gizmag+Subscribers&utm_campaign=852252cc0d-UA-2235360-4&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_65b67362bd-852252cc0d-91117289
  7. New Solowheel Scorpion

    The new Solowheel Scorpion is suppose to ship the first week of December. Does anyone have the specs or better yet... ordered one? The only spec I have is the $1595 price! Below is a link to the Scorpion basic manual that is just basic boiler plate language. Disappointing! http://www.inventist.com/assets/images/inventions/solowheelscorpion/Solowheel_Scorpion_2016-Manual.pdf
  8. Xtreme vibrates when stressed

    I bought an Xtreme several weeks ago and have noticed when I climb hills or ride hard/fast it starts to vibrate hard for a few seconds repeatedly until I turn it off. Then it works fine on restarting it until pushed again. Any thoughts?
  9. Is Solowheel dead?

    Just curious if anybody has any info. I tried visiting Solowheel.com and it's not active anymore. The Solowheel is still in the inventist site, but it links back to Solowheel.com, which of course doesn't work. Did the company go bankrupt or something?
  10. I purchased a TG-T3 used and after a few months It stopped turning on. I've come to find that the power switch failed and a few of the flat resistors on the motherboard burned out. I've searched the internet looking for a TG-T3 motherboard and have contacted many venders who sell EU parts to no avail. The closest I've come to finding a replacement for my purple TG-T3 motherboard is a yellow Solowheel motherboard I purchased from Alibaba.com. After installing it, all it wants to do when its turn on is go in one direction as fast as it can until it errors out. I've tried jumping the pins to do a balance reset but that didn't work. Its as if it doesn't know that its on the ground or balanced. Any thoughts? Was it just silly of me to blindly put in another mother board? Does anyone know where I could get a TG-T3 motherboard or how to get this Solowheel motherboard to work with my TG-T3 hardware?
  11. I purchased a Solowheel three years ago and have used it almost daily since then, riding approximately 25 km/week. I love my Solowheel and thoroughly enjoy riding it. I am also quite impressed with the device’s durability. My only mechanical problem with the Solowheel has been a single flat tire, which is a little tricky to replace. I learned to be careful to keep the tire pressure up. In year three, I thought my battery was breaking down because after only a 6 km ride, the red battery-warning light would start to flash. Quite by accident, I discovered the tire pressure was low, and when I refilled it the battery range problem went away. I should mention that I am very careful, every night, to put the Solowheel on it’s charger and. I understand that keeping a full charge as much as possible helps the lithium batteries. So, in late 2015 I decided to look at upgrading my Solowheel to a newer model. Of course, in three years quite a bit of product development had occurred and there were more competitive choices in the marketplace. I did some online research but unfortunately, many of the manufacturer’s sales documents were poorly written and online reviews were often written by people with little riding experience or experience with only one model. After considering several options, I decided to try the Ninebot Uni E+ model - although it seemed somewhat a gamble as I had seen both positive and negative comments about it online. So, after riding the Ninebot for a few months and accumulating 130 km of travel I am in a good position to review it, at least in comparison with the Solowheel. The Solowheel presents several great features. The device is very well built and has proven quite durable. Battery performance has been excellent. I find the Solowheel speed and balance good. The carrying handle is integrated into the body and functions quite well when picking up the unit, and especially after stepping off the Solowheel when finishing a ride. In general, I find I can ride about 4 km before my feet tire of the standing position and I need to step off and relax the muscles a couple minutes before resuming. The main Solowheel disadvantage - price. I originally purchased mine for $1800. The equivalent model now looks priced around $1400. The Ninebot E+ unit boasts of higher speed, longer range and is priced around $900. Out of the box, it certainly looks good with a more futuristic-looking outer shell and integrated LED lights. It was also noticeably heavier than my Solowheel - as disclosed online in the specifications. With my Solowheel experience, I was able to ride the Ninebot immediately. True to specification, it certainly rides faster than the Solowheel at top speed. In fact, I find the Ninebot top speed uncomfortably fast for “cruising” but nice when you need a burst of speed to pass walkers/bikers. I have confirmed the longer battery range and the bluetooth connected iphone app is very handy to check battery status. Some other observations. First, the position of the pedals on the Ninebot angle up slightly compared to the Solowheel and I found the Ninebot weight to be carried a little higher (probably due to larger motor or batteries). Both these differences took some time to get used to and I initially found them less comfortable than the Solowheel. However, now I no longer notice the difference. I also found I needed to add a little extra padding to the Ninebot where my legs touched the side of the unit. Helpfully, the padding was included in the box. Most unexpectedly, I continue to find the Ninebot seems more stable when riding at very slow speeds compared to the Solowheel. I’m not sure the reason, but if I have to slow down behind some walkers, waiting to pass them, the Ninebot is more stable and easier to maneuver at these lower speeds. On the downside, my Ninebot arrived with a very low tire pressure. The instructions are included to add air, but it requires taking off the plastic cover and this is not trivial. Without care, the “snap tabs” holding the cover on can break. I am not sure how many cycles of remove/reinstall those tabs will take. I don’t suspect very many. Also, the Ninebot comes with a recessed handle built into the body. This looks very nice and functions alright (some reviews have warned the handle can break too easily) but I find it very inconvenient when stepping off the unit at the end of a ride to try and grab this recessed handle. It works much better when simply moving the unit around, into and out of the car for example. Finally, my bluetooth connection with the Ninebot only works about 75% of the time. I have no idea why. For that reason, I am afraid to put a digital lock “code” on the unit or even update the firmware for fear that I end up with a unusable “brick”. Some online reviewers have mentioned firmware updates can be tricky. It appears the only manufacturer’s support originates from very far away in China. On the other hand, I can see no pressing reason to update the firmware. The Ninebot really seems to work great! So to summarize, I am really impressed with the overall technology in both these units. Each product works as advertised and makes a great short-distance transportation unit. I especially love how I can put these units into my car, using them for easy-transit around my destination, or carry them into a building. The range and speed options are quite suitable and recharging is relatively quick (a couple hours in both cases). I recommend either unit to interested buyers.

  14. In other post I've read that 1.2.2 had no issues with random cut off's and at the time my software was at 1.2.6 and I was experiencing random cut off's for no reason with plenty of battery life to spare going slow and going fast the unit would randomly turn off and send me flying forward. I am currently running the 1.3.0 software and have again experienced random cut off at around 40% battery life and at varying speeds. What do you guys think? Is it my specific unit or is it a problem that's bigger like the software or at the manufacturing?
  15. Here's how I protected my hoverboard/swegway. You should do it to any of your electric vehicle that get scratches quickly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Hbb53mBGiQ
  16. Airplane Travel with SoloWheel

    According to SoloWheel Xtreme printed specs on the pedal, it has a 160Wh battery. That means it is air travel worthy. What are the odds that airport security would prevent me from boarding?! (plane ticket is way cheaper than wheel, I rather miss the flight!) If you have traveled with electric unicycles, please share your experience! I took a picture of the printed data on my SoloWheel Xtreme's pedal:

  20. I wanted to install my bike computer more permanently with a nicely hidden wire, so I opened up my Solowheel Xtreme partially; here is how to take it apart. (Disclaimer: this may void your warranty and/or break your wheel. Do it at your own risk!! Also, I just tried this out -- there may be a better way or order to it) 1. Unscrew the top handle and the screw in the rubber charger connector; after this you can remove the top black padding by shifting it upward (and slightly pressing in). (and ignore the bike computer ) 2. In the picture below, the red circles show where the black padding hooks went in. When putting it back, be careful not to catch any wires. Wow, very neat wire arrangement, even with markings. Most wires were also neatly attached with 'heat glue'. It may help to have a heat glue device yourself to re-attach if necessary (about $8,-). And we see the advantage of a double shell: the wires are on the outside and there are no holes exposed where dirt and water can come in (from the inside). Below, I also unscrewed the blue and red displays -- and unplugged the charger wire (part of it is in the black shell). 3. unscrew the 5 shell screws on the sides; I used a piece of tape to remember where each screw belongs. Note, only unscrew one side -- see next why. Actually, In the above photo I turned the wheel around which is not necessary. And you need to turn it again, such that the "CE" marked wheel pad is up. But first unscrew on both sides the 7 big screws on the vertical bars above the pads. Actually, if you only need access to the tire, then you should not remove the shell that contains the control wire and can leave in the 7 big screws on that side (the side that does not have CE label pad). 4. Now, carefully turn the wheel as the shell is loose now. Make sure the "CE" marked pad is up. Then carefully turn the top shell around the top of the wheel. 5. Again, note how I use tape to remember where all screws came from. Such neat design: the inside shell is completely dust/water proof -- no holes are exposed. Because we unscrewed only one side of the shell in the beginning, the square metal bars are now attached to one side of the shells: If we would have screwed off both sides, the bars would all come loose. 6. Now we are ready to remove the wheel -- but the other side has the thick wire that controls the wheel motor inside the wheel. Actually, this step should only be done if necessary since you must be very careful not to twist or bend the wire. Don't do this side if you are not comfortable with it. Anyway, we need to remove it carefully and not pull, twist or bend the control wire . The wire sits in a cutout in the shell and can be slowly extended; here is a view underneath the wheel: once you see it, you can slowly turn the wheel to its side and pull the wire out of the cutout (marked in red). and that is it. I must say I was tempted to open inner compartments and look at the battery and mainboard but in the end decided not to do it -- I enjoy my wheel too much at the moment and didn't want to break anything. This must wait for another time Putting it back is doing everything in reverse and being careful not to catch any wires. Also, when re-attaching the 7 screws on each vertical bar do this slowly and evenly such that they all go in lightly and are well-aligned. Only then tighten them up. Finally, don't forget to re-attach the charging wire when attaching the black padding again -- and make 100% sure red goes to red, and black to black!!!! Also, don't overtighten the two screws in the handle -- if you strip the screws you are without a handle... I did all of this to get the bike computer neatly tucked away; I'll show that in the next post
  21. I'm from the Philippines and I wanted to buy a electric unicycle ( to get to school and back home which is 6kms back and forth) but the thing is I don't have any options on which to buy but I've found 3 on the net. Which of this 3 is better ? I don't know the technical stuff specs but I hope you help me Here's the link 1. http://www.lazada.com.ph/moonwheel-e-001-electric-unicycle-black-440356.html Link 2 http://www.lazada.com.ph/x3-electric-wheelbarrow-unicycle-blackred-470355.html link 3 http://www.lazada.com.ph/mars-kingdom-f3-mk-moonwheel-black-249365.html thanks
  22. This is a new entrant in the "seat and handle" category of the EUCs. At $1790 a bit cheaper than Solowheel Xtreme. What do you guys think of it? Specs impressive? For me I will stick to Ninebots or Firewheels/Gotways. Here is the URL. http://www.gizmag.com/moto-pogo-one-wheeled-self-balancing-scooter/38090/?utm_source=Gizmag+Subscribers&utm_campaign=3a71895c63-UA-2235360-4&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_65b67362bd-3a71895c63-91117289
  23. ​I ride my wheel almost daily and often think about features I wish it had and have been making a wish list in my head. I was curious what features other riders wish were standard features. WishlistAbility to turn off speed beeping Nothing is more annoying than the beeping when you are on a ​clear stretch and accelerate up to max speed and the wheel keeps beeping at you. I like that it's a safety feature, but I'd also like the ability to turn it off. Ignition key to l​ock ​wheel Wheel security (theft deterrent) is an area that I think is significantly lacking across most wheels that I've seen. I live in New York City and need to be able to secure my wheel when I ride from home to another destination. An ignition key would be a great start! Anyone can take my wheel and glide away with it without the need of a key. Mechanism to chain it up to a secure place (pole, bike rack, etc.) Another security feature. A major selling point of all wheels is their portability to lift and carry short distances which makes them easy targets for theft. Many wheels have a handle that can be used to secure to a pole with a cable, but some don't like the Ninebot One series. A built in cable would be amazing. Storage solutions I need a place to store my cable to secure the wheel - or other small items I don't want to carry on my person and otherwise don't need to bring a backpack. This is less critical than other feature and could be solved with an aftermarket accessory, though I haven't seen one yet. Braking (and headlamp) lights as standard features My Firewheel has these and I love it. I have been researching a second wheel to buy and wish more had this as a standard feature. Smartphone app as standard feature ​ ​Another feature that more manufacturers are providing, but wish it was standard for all wheels. Being able to see the stats on my wheel's speed, battery life, etc. is an awesome feature. What else?
  24. It's interesting to see the history of "Electric single motor wheel for pedestrian" . I thought Inventist "invented" the solo wheel. I was wrong. Stunningly similar wheels were issued patents as back as 1977! See the links below. My question was, how did they manage "self balancing" back then? That technology was introduced by Segway...like in 2000 (AFAIK). https://www.google.com/patents/US4109741 https://www.google.com/patents/US20090266629 This last one is of course by Inventist. http://www.google.com/patents/US8807250 Your thoughts?
