  1. I remember seeing a couple of video's a while back of riders standing on top of their wheels whilst riding along. It looked like an awesome trick. I can't find the links (it was a Chinese or Thai video) but from memory, the wheels used had a flat top, which provided a place to stand. Has anyone seen this trick done on a round-topped wheel like the Ninebot One? I didn't think it could be done on a round topped wheel but then my (latest) handle just snapped off leaving somewhere I could potentially put my foot and now I'm thinking it may be possible? Has anyone tried this trick (? @Hirsute, @Sidestreet Reny, @wheeler) or have any suggestions on how best to approach it?
  2. List here different maneuvers here to make yourself a better rider or to have safe fun....
  3. I would really love to hear about some other new and inventive tricks, especially original and extreme as well as high, steep and far....and of course dangerous! I made up some sick new tricks the other day at the skatepark, I am especially stoked on the "Ollie Pedal Slide"!! This need to do new things with new stuff all comes from being a skateboarder, snowboarder, snow-skateboarder and any other skillful sport and adventure I have found. How about you? P.S. My new skatepark video loading later today! ....but here's a preview pic of one of the first "Ollie Pedal Slide" I landed that day, it was only a 24 inch slide (120cm or so). I have been sliding them about four or five feet long now (165 cm or more) with faster landings and up to higher ledges! So let me know if ya got anything that you have done or are trying to do or even just thinking about doing. Holler!! Peace fo'real - Sidestreet Reny
  4. Learning to do tricks consistently on an electric unicycle requires learning technique, (lots of) practice/repetition, understanding the parameters under which your wheel operates and recognising (and attempting to control, or embrace) any variable(s). Controlling the Variables A variable is an element, feature, or factor that is liable to vary or change. If you are trying to learn to do a trick consistently then it’s a very good idea to have a think about what elements, features or factors could vary, and how these may be controlled. Some variables are more practical to control than others. I have listed some of the most important ones below, please feel free to add any I have missed. Environmental Variables Surfaces Different types of surface will all provide a very different environment for practising and performing tricks. A lot of flat surfaces are not actually flat. The most consistently flat and uniform outdoor surface that I have found are flat areas in professionally built Skateparks. Surface moisture reduces the amount of friction between the wheel and the surface which greatly affects turning and spinning – this can sometimes be used to your advantage. (This variable is best controlled by practising on the same high quality surface). Think Friction, Hardness, smoothness, bounce, incline, moisture, temperature Example surfaces which may all provide a very different riding experience: Concrete Wooden stage Dry Tarmac Wet Tarmac Paving Slabs Brick Marble Grass Gravel Dirt Temperature Different temperatures will have an effect on the riding surface, the tire, the motor, the control board, the battery and the rider. If you are practising in the middle of the day during summer then the wheel is likely to get hot much quicker. (This variable would be best controlled by practising indoors in a temperature controlled environment). Distractions Distractions can impact on practice sessions, obvious examples include: Noise Traffic Spectators other Riders Animals/Pets Electric Unicycle Variables Model Some electric unicycle models seem more suited to tricks than others. It may not be possible to perform some tricks on all models. You may have to adapt your technique depending on differences between models. Variation between wheels may include Wheel size Weight Centre of gravity (this can be greatly affected by where the battery is situated) Pedal Size Pedal Height Pedal Angle Pedal Grip Firmware Changing the firmware that runs on your wheel’s control board may change the whole feeling of the wheel. (This variable can be best controlled by not changing the firmware version). Riding Mode Many wheels have different riding modes which change the responsiveness of the wheel (E.g. hard/soft). (This variable can be best controlled by sticking to the same riding mode). Tire Type The tread and compound on a tire affects the huge difference on ride. (This variable can be best controlled by monitoring the tire tread and replacing with the same tire as soon as adverse wear is identified). Tire Pressure Changing the tire pressure makes a big difference. A higher pressure will result in a faster and more responsive wheel (but more difficult to control). (This variable can be best controlled by fixing the tire pressure as a parameter and regularly measuring/adjusting the tire pressure before a practice session). Battery Charge EUCs can respond markedly differently at different states of charge. (This variable can be best controlled by fully charging your wheel before each practice session). Accessories Attaching accessories to the wheel can impact on how the wheel behaves – these can alter the centre of gravity or restrict entry/exit to/from the wheel. (This variable can be best controlled by removing all accessories from the wheel or having the same accessories attached to the wheel when attempting to perform tricks). Personal Variables Weight Rider weight could be a source of variation. (This variable can be best controlled by monitoring your weight and adjusting your diet accordingly). Fitness (This variable can be best controlled by adhering to a regular fitness regime). Footwear Wearing different footwear can affect your riding performance. Variables include: Grip Sole thickness (this affects your ability to feel the foot plates) Padding & Support Tightness (This variable can be best controlled by wearing the same pair of shoes when performing tricks). Clothing Clothing can be a source of variation. Some clothes can restrict movement and even affect the weight or the centre of gravity of the system. If you are practising for a show it may be sensible to practice in the costume that you are going to wear for the show.(This variable can be best controlled by wearing similar fitting clothing when practising). Safety Equipment Safety equipment can affect your movement and centre of gravity. (This variable can be best controlled by wearing the same safety equipment each session).
  5. This is a thread for links to footage of tricks from other wheel/skate sports that could potentially be transitioned to the electric unicycle. Moderators - feel free to move this thread to a different section if you feel it doesn't belong here There's already a thread for posting tricks/stunts performed on electric unicycles: http://forum.electricunicycle.org/topic/148-tricks-to-learn/ You can copy a You Tube video from a specific time point by right clicking on the video and "copy video URL at current time" I'll start with a crazy BMX pole spin - with an EUC you'd be relying on the motor cutting out during the spin around the pole together with a really good grip on the wheel during the spin. I'm not completely sure it would be possible to do this on an EUC?
  6. Hey guys, anyone have any tips for jumping over curbs and idling/moving slowly through a crowd? Here's a pretty neat video I ran into with the ninebot one .
