  1. Last year I chased down a robber and got the victim's money back, and posted about it here. Tomorrow the brewers are honoring me by releasing a delicious bock beer, named Unicycle Vigilante! Here is a picture of the label flat and on a can. Also an Instagram post about it from the brewery.

  2. Do not worry Your Nikola is safe. I'm not sure I understood your doubts correctly, but here's an explanation from the basics. 5000mAh is the capacity (1 - see below) of a single cell. It is completely unrelated to the maximum amperage of that single cell. The maximum amperage is a technical spec of the battery cell and can not be inferred from the capacity at all. 5000mAh is literally 5 amps times one hour. So it offers 5A for an hour, or 10A for 30 minutes, or 20A for 15 minutes, etc. That's just "how much is in a cell" - 5Ah, as measured in Ampere-hours(1). A realistic continuous (

  3. We're comparing two designs: MSuper with bearing size 6203 MSuper with bearing size 61824 Everything else about the bearing loads are equal: Same rider weight Same pedal dimensions (critically: width) Same distance between bearings (motors did not get 'wider') If we consider typical manufacturer ratings for those bearings, we see: 61824 has 3x the load rating of 6203 (30kN vs 10kN) 61824 has 1/3 the speed rating of 6203 (8kRPM vs 26kRPM) EUC is overall a "low speed application": 30mph is roughly 500RPM. Therefore, bearing speed is not

  4. Hey everyone ! First post in this forum ^^ Lately i'm having so much fun dancing and freestyling on my inmotion v5f and also started doing some video edits. Now i'm feeling confident enough to start sharing some of my work. This is the first piece of a long serie ! Any kind of feedback would be much appreciated ! =) Peace out :>

  5. I'd like to bring up two points that add to the shortcomings of the hollow motor design. First, if you look closely at the black part, the outer housing of the motor you will see that there is a gap between the bearing and the housing. Any water that gets in that gap has no way to get out other than going into the bearing. If you add centrifugal force to the equation any water that gets in there is basically forced into the bearing. In my opinion any moisture that gets in there and collects will be forced into the bearing no matter how good the bearing is. If you have a good look y

  6. Educate yourself, and have healthy amount of doubt in everything and everyone. It still surprises me how much people blindly / lazily believe what they hear on YouTube from "experts" / "veterans". YouTube just means they have a camera and know a little bit about how to edit, that is all.

  7. All Veteran would need to do is release one or two solid lower-tier/more-affordable/bit-lighter models, for example similar category to the MSP/RS (so still 100v but closer to the ~$2k price-point and sub-60 lbs) in addition to their flagship Sherman--and then how long before the major distributors such as ewheels might decide Gotway just isn't worth the never-ending series of assembly/QA issues and drop them altogether? (Obviously they wouldn't have done that when Gotway was the only high-speed, 100v option.. but the existence of Veteran and success of the Sherman changes that, if only they a

  8. What risk? You fall down, you skid across the ground a little bit, you get up no problem... I thoughtfully encourage people to do extreme sports! I’m 68 I encourage anyone that will listen to fly with me, ski, paraglide, sail, moto-x, soar a sailplane, ride bikes, even ride EUC’s! I encourage them to get off their dead asses and do anything that holds their interest! All of these things have inherent risk. Yet of all the things I do daily, driving a car has the most risk associated with it. I’ve never thought of asking anyone if they understand the risks involved when they get in th

  9. With BeJesus and Vet, pre-production is production if pre-production is production is..... Thanks to @evX_Mick for the tryout of the 24Pro, further validating my decision not to buy this wheel, despite me being the biggest fan of large format EUCs (honestly, I'm waiting for something bigger than this *cough* Veteran @Linnea Veteran *cough*) If you're truly a fan of the original Monster and not afraid of a little pedal "dip", considering it more advantageous tool than defect, then the 24 "Monster Pro" is only alike to the Monster in name only, not in ride feel.

  10. Since you have just starter riding, there are a LOT of things you need to read about these marvelous machines, and how to use them without ending up in hospital. #1: Whenever you feel that the pedals tilt back or the wheel push you back, even very slightly, or that the wheel doesn’t allow you to go faster, DO NOT KEEP PUSHING!!! Slow down a bit IMMEDIATELY! #2: Whenever you hear ANY beeps or other sounds from the wheel, slow down IMMEDIATELY! #3: Read a few pages of the thread “Understanding the dynamics”. Also read as many tips and instructions in the beginner section of the fo

  12. This is my sons first ride on the S-18. The day before he rode his first EUC. He got on the Mten3 rode it out to the road and just kept on going! Amazing! Took me hours to figure out how to ride. Watch as he stops on the road, it’s slippery wet ice and he has a hard time standing up. The Pirelli Angel scooter tire sticks like glue, and I paid under $40 for it. It’s real tire not a flimsy POS like the OEM. I’ve tried other tires, none of them worked for me. The only knobby that fit was way too wobbly. I just about gave up until I came across the Pirelli.

  15. What a drama. I don't mean the fire, I mean the drama here. As long as the box of a wheel is not burned and eWheels cleans the boxes properly, I see no reason to worry. If the box has survived, then surely the wheel too.

  16. I enjoy his videos, but sometimes wonder wtf is he thinking? I've heard him say a lot of things in this video and others. Hard to know what to rely on as actual information as his delivery is sometimes sketchy and I'm not sure he researches much. Blatant inaccuracies arent uncommon. Just sayin', if you want to be seen as an information source, his OWN quality control needs a little rehashing. Seems a decent enough fellow and I dont want to undermine him, but perhaps we need to verify most of what we hear, from second and third sources. Hell, more than half the list on this video, are damn nea

  17. Value expressed in Amphours is not a current rating, but capacity. While higher battery capacity usually means higher current rating, there is no direct relation between both. As a bright example - you can have a 3500 mAh, 18650 cell that is rated for 8 Amps of continuous discharge (Samsung 35E @ 30°C), you can have 5000 mAh, 21700 cell that is only rated for 7 Amps (LG M50T @ 30 °C). I've been repeating this many times, I'll repeat it once again. 21700 cells are in no way superior to 18650. It's just a different form factor.

  21. In addition to what is said above, 800W is only the nominal wattage. Peak wattage can be much higher. A motor is (for this purpose) just a hunk of metal, so unless you melt something or it gets so hot the magnets die, the wattage can get as high as you like in the short term. The real limitations in EUCs are always the battery (supply side of the power equation) which might just not give enough current to keep you upright the motor torque that just approaches zero as you approach the top speed, so you can always overlean any wheel if you are close to its motor's top speed

  24. This has little to do with outside temperature or obstructed cooling or whatever. The motor power cables simply are too thin for certain high currents that appear under extreme stresses (continuous very steep uphill). Usually the motor cables melt their insulation, short together, and the short blows up the rest of the board like a mosfet or a capacitor. You can tell because the cables are melted together, which probably wouldn't happen from a mosfet or other component frying and producing the original short. To prevent this, Gotway (they had the same problem 3 years ago) and Veteran

  29. Really? Perhaps just don't lick the wheel and store the box away from the humidifier. I would be more concerned of radiation that could be present in everything we buy. I wouldnt worry about a little leftover soot and ash. As a trucker, you get to see how industry really works and how dirty and contaminated our world really is. I guess it depends on the extend of damage, but surely a sealed box that survives with the contents unburned, won't be much an issue. If i noticed an odor, I'd ask for a discount and air that bad boy out at 30mph down the street.

  30. Me too. Its all I will use. Getting bloody expensive though. I would have to disagree that ALL of them have been shite. The Z10 had excellent cable managment, routing and stress protection. Not to mention properly encased battery packs, rigourous case construction and decent, ample fasteners. Oh and proper waterproofing. The thing is built like a tank, presumably because the engineers (I dont use that word lightly, but they clearly were, unlike most of the muppets involved in other wheels) designed it to have the best chance of staying together at the crash speeds it is capable of, and

I was always taught and have ALWAYS maintained that solder is NOT a mechanical connection. Solder is an electrical connection. ALL wires that are subject to vibration or any tension, need have a mechanical connection along with the solder. I was one of the very few techs that had copper staples in my town. Hell, noone knew wtf they even were! A single crimped band where wires connect and then soldered and then shrink wra

  33. I can translate - this issue happened on last Sunday mid day on the A2 highway close to Warsaw, Poland - this is the coincidence of unfortunate and fortunate events. Wheel had been loaded to the trunk after power-demanding high speed tests, and issue may have developed due to the main board failure or through the temperature of the pack getting to high due to high current which may have influenced weaker cells (as packs were not from this wheel originally. Raz noticed the smell but initially he did not realize that this may be from the battery, but he slowed down and stopped on the emer

I noticed my snowboard gloves only had a little scuff damage, I don’t think they slid. the helmet is cracked, the face shield is really scraped and bloody. It did the job and will be disposed. I will avoid streets for a while.

Hi My name is Julien, I'm joining the community of EUC user pretty soon (just ordered a KS-18XL), never stepped on one before ^^ I'm just gonna tell you my life and explain how I came to considering getting an EUC I'm a French Citizen who fell in love with a girl from Arizona (USA), we've been engaged for quite some time now and planned to live together in 2020... but you know, world burned to ashes, everything and crazy, etc... (I promise there's a link between that and me getting a EUC). Start might get easier for us soon and I'm thinking about my new "life" after moving to Arizona...

  37. I completely disagree. In my experience, this wheel is the most robust, weel engineered wheel i ever dismantled. The shell is rock solid, the inserts and screws are top notch quality compared to anything else before, the trolley is just perfectly placed, the front light is very powerful and its height can be adjusted dynamically, the lcd is a gamechanger. About the rim, i must have been lucky because mine is perfectly centered, but it seems to happen sometimes. About the torque,it's the only wheel i got (9 eucs) where I have still not been able to make it beep in acceleration, it's tr

  40. I am 63 and have been in to it for about 2 weeks. Nearly bought a onewheel but after seeing Jimmy Chang's onewheel vs EUC on youtube I had to have one. I did not consider the safety aspects, if I had, I may not have bought one. Watching some of the stacks has dented my confidence a bit. So far I have stayed up right but invested in a Bell3R helmet. Already had kneepads, elbow pads and wrist guards (left over from rollerblading days). Padded shorts next.

  44. Well time has come to embrace the winter season. I først though I would use one of my old wheels. But it seems my V11 has become such an addiction that I don't feel as safe or comfortable on my old wheels. Especially the new Hex pedals I find going back to old wheels much harder. So after looking into how to deal with winter without a car I had to do something. I took on @mrelwoods advice and got an IRC SN-26 EVO 80/80-14 winter tire. So say it is hard to change a tire on V11. I will say it isn't as easy as on my first wheel V8, or my KS18L. There are a few m

  45. Not sure where you got this information, but the bearings have to support pedal hangar forces in the RS. If anything, the way the pedal hangars are mounted with four screws, causes load "hotspots" on the bearings, whereas the traditional axle bearing will have the load more evenly distributed around the whole bearing. Most industrial uses of hollow bore motors have a consistent, predictable load. EUCs subject the bearings to varying torsional, axial and vibrational loads through carving, jumping, twisting, accelerating and braking. Most industrial uses of hollow bore moto
