THE VIDEO THREAD!

Video is coming if I don’t break my neck first. I found a really awesome amphitheater to practice at. Now I have slippery leaves to contend with. I bought a cordless leaf blower to clear the space. I’m sure the park maintenance crew will be fine with it as there are no more outdoor concerts planned for the year.

That looks like a great place to have fun, particularly if you have it to yourself. Yes, please don't break your neck :D

@Marty Backe You have some serious riding skills (and videomaking too, as already said in the other thread)! I was impressed by the mten3 overpass video and how tiny its turn circles are, but you did that even backwards. And now this video.

You really want to make me buy an mten3, just looks so fun to weightlessly fly-dance through the world like this with a tiny, light wheel that never limits your maneuverability. Must protect wallet... must resist...:pooping: 

Gotway should pay you (I've heard from others they bought a GW wheel due to your videos).

Thanks :D

You can do tight turns with any wheel, but it's so effortless with the Mten3. It feels like the wheel reads your mind and just does what you think :)

I'll continue to make these videos until you buy one :laughbounce2:

You guys think that's a 100V Monster (black) or did someone just sell black regular Monsters in California?

Also that guy has fantastic images overall in this video. Will check out the Youtube channel. Thanks for posting this.

I'm guessing he just painted it since he said the top speed is 30mph.

Nope, the 100volt monster is just in the hand of a few major resellers (if not just only one) and up to this day it is not even decided if the 100volt wheel goes into production.....

Maybe it “is set” for the monster, that this will be released as 100volt-1850wh.....but for all other GW wheel you would have to redesign the shell....as per seriell pack you need 4 cells more, and that space is not there in the v3 or Acm...

Have you figured out how to avoid dizziness going in circles? I know skaters focus on one object to try and trick the brain. For some reason my brain and the 20,000 accompanying nerve cells refuse this trickery and I have to reverse my spins to stop from throwing up.:wacko:

I do the skater thing sometimes, but mostly I just quit spinning before I get dizzy.  Or I unwind the dizziness by spinning a bit in the other direction.

Yes, I get dizzy after 4 or 5 tight 360's and am forced to stop. I should try the skater technique as @radial says, for kicks. Then again, 4 or 5 turns should be good enough for anyone ;)

Maybe my Raspberry Pi GPS track (URL to map) of a route to Boston (today) will straighten out you orbiting mTen3 fanatics.....Only kidding..... Remember @Marty Backe's 'recalibrate your mind...referencing Gotway Monster?

If you zoom in you'll find the 'secret' Dunkin Donuts recharging stops every 6 miles or so. It's where the GPS I use with RPi gets lost looking for satellites while I consume beverages and mooch AC power.

A $15 'inland' USB dual port USB recharger battery (10.4 Wh) lasted for hours today as the RPi power source.

After the Dept of public works ripped open a water pipe (Jack hammers) on Monday and after my landlord showed the building to prospective buyers yesterday (a walk through of my apt stuff 😬) , a long Ninebot ride was just what I wanted.

mTen3 tricks look great....plus a backwards riding Renaissance of sorts for the risk takers.

It looks too much like a medical school lecture arena to be a coincidence.

@Rehab1 A Dr presenting the latest EUC rotation concepts? Maybe tired of presenting / listening to 'her2 flip flop' gene expression research results for breast cancer for other MDs?

I mean .... doctors!....let's be real.....her2 flip flops!!...how tactfully tasteful for witty breast cancer research discussions.

I overheard two MDs talking about 'her2 flip flops' at Starbucks the other day as my Ninebot was charging. Better sounding than epidermal oncogenic growth factor (receptor)!

If you know @Rehab1, I'm sure a part is finding a pretext to justify some shiny new gadget. This time, the leaf blower...:efeebb3acc:

Your link to the GPS track seems to be private. You have to set it to public for us to see.

Also, quite the distance ride, for you and for the Ninebot. Nice! Did you go both ways by wheel?

Thanks..I'll see if I can change that . That's the reason for the imgoat.com picture link. Sorry....

The part of the route in Everett, MA passes by the controversial but eminently lucrative 'Wynn Casino' construction project which is in full swing.

The bot can do the distance...4800 miles and counting but my anatomy has a few places in the knees that would sometimes prefer low impact armchair stuff or simple walking. 

My 'smart'phone has some menu access limits. Fumble fingers me paused the trace going in (last recharge) so on the way out I made the missing section. I took the bus the last half of the way back. Your choice of EUC and long lasting battery is an envious one.

In one Paris photo of you a woman sitting nearby is seen. Is she German?

Paris must have been great.....good for you....pictures will suffice for us 'across the pond'.

If I can set the access to public I'll post a note. 

The cows are descending to winter shelter from the local Alps for the winter ?

Hehe.

It tells me in the map, under "share", you can set it public.

Depends on the photo, maybe. Paris was indeed great:efeeec645d: There's also Videos, check @Hansolo's Youtube channel (Yves Mathieu), the 30th September and 1st October videos, and more posted in the Paris thread.

No idea about cows, I've not done any mountain rides due to some cable damage that needs to be repaired first (didn't do it yet to not interfere with other planned rides). But they should be down by now.

Your link to the GPS track

Goggle My Maps says that a shareable link is only possible with a list of recipients identified by email address. However, a public link for Goggle Drive for the Google Earth *.kmz file I just uploaded should work with GE.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B07we0osMR1zS3FqXzNHZFZoRGs/view?usp=sharing

Hope it works for you. GPS tracks per se aren't that interesting to me but my RPi + gps project has had a number of issues (low power instability, accidental power off) recently resolved with a new dual port battery pack...an interesting point for me but likely not for anyone else.

Thanks for the feedback.

Awesome, rehab!  I knew you would make good use of that amphitheater.  Are those the grandkids?

I rode my Mten in front of a very small audience at a local amphitheater today.:)

 

That was fantastic @Rehab1 :D  Looks like you're enjoying the Mten3 as much as I am. I tell people that, "yes, you can do tight turns, etc. on other wheels, but not effortlessly like with the Mten3"  Your video is a manifestation of that - pure joy with so little effort. Appears like a nice place to wheel.

Looked like you were 'dancing' to the music that was playing. Great stuff :cheers:

Thanks buddy! Fun time! Mavic also worked well.

I had a little BT speaker that was playing music while I rode. Kind of got caught up in the moment.  :)
