It's been raining in SC since Thanksgiving, with flash floods and all, and the weekend is gonna be miserable, too. C'mon, Marty, from our Hero become our SUPERHERO by establishing once and for all, whether the "Gotway raw power growl" can entirely be attributed to their controllers, or not. Just do it!TM
This is of course a purely personal decision you have to make. So far what I’ve seen and read over the years is that it boils down to commitment. Yes, it will feel impossible at first. What do you do then? If you give up, you have indeed wasted a few hundred bucks (there’s still re-sell value) for a not-so-nice experience. If you keep on practicing, with well over 90% certainty you will eventually nail it and have the fun of your life! Extremely few people can’t ride even with proper commitment to learn. There are several riders even over the age of 70. For some even the first step may take several hours, while others can get started in a matter of minutes.
There are many good midrange models you could look into as well, second hand or new. You would lose less money selling them forward, yet most of them have been the top performers just 2 years back, and have been the spotlights of many of our lives for a full year or more: V10F, 16S, V8F, Tesla.
Whichever choice you make, body protection is crucial. Best to make a habit of not even getting on the wheel without full coverage of wrist, knee, elbow, head, and perhaps even shoulder and hip protection.
A simple way to test this theory would be to install GW controller on a different wheel known to be quiet, e.g. KS 16X. No need to install inside - 16X has a huge flat "deck" on top, just secure GW controller to it using some tape, find a way to route the cables (will probably need to make cable adapters/extensions), and "trojan" it instead of 16X's controller. Will 16X then sound like "Gotway raw power"?
Anyone brave & curious?
I know I'm not the oldest but let's get the "ball(wheel)" rolling.
I'm 66 years old and I ride 3 or 4 times daily during summer and a couple times daily in winter down into the teens f.
I am stage 4 cancer and handicaped.
I ride seated 100% of the time.
I have over 2100 miles.
I've broke 2 ribs, wrenched back several times and am the king of unscheduled landings and FacePlants.
Currently I have been designing a jumping ramp to see how far and high I can fly through the air (hopefully in the vicinity of my euc).
I'll still be riding my beloved Unicycle as a Box of Bones!!!
Let's start the bidding....
