  1. I rode my wheel to work the other day and rode it out for lunch. I got one of those "share a Coke with..." bottles. I thought it was funny, so I took this picture. My wife was not as amused.

  2. 我們想知道如果電動獨輪車的BMS電力不足,它會不會自動停下來? 現在大部份的EU如果電量不夠,它不會警告騎車的人,如果在馬路上突然停下來的話會很危險。 我們想詢問貴公司是否有關於此電能管理系統的安全措施?

  4. Don't think there are really any good ways to find out without opening it, I suppose you could weigh it. E+ should weigh 14.2kg.

  5. Received the msuper yesterday and rode 2 hours with it ( only stoped because was geting dark ) . Very quick delivery and the wheel is evething i wanted and more . Thanks for the exelent service on yorkshire airwheels. I worried that 18 in could be too big but is perfect . It feels a lot like the 121 but faster and even more stable offroad . Definetly 18 in is the size for me. Still had 3 lights on the battery in the end.?

  6. Hi Manu, I had a 14" Airwheel clone for about three months before I upgraded to a Ninebot One E+. It took little time to adapt to the bigger diameter but after a couple of hours on the new beast, I would not change back for the world. The bigger wheel gives one more stability and it makes going up curbs much easier. After some practise also tight curves are not an issue anymore. The only setback is the weight. There is now a good 4,5 kg difference and that makes it hard for me to carry it around for more than 10 min. But now I have installed the trolley handle and walking in, out and through b

  7. I pull the ninebot handle through the hole of both zippers, and I take the three handles, but the weight is supported by the ninebot handle actually, and not the bag handles. I do not know if a reinforcement will be enough. The whole bag seems very weak.

  10. I also just got back from the trip from San Francisco to Barcalona, via London Heathrow. Flew with the xtreme no problem. Nobody even cared about the battery size or even asked about the battery. A couple of security people wanted to see it working, but out of curiosity, not concern. I also rode it in all four airports (San Fran, Philiy, London, Barca) but only in wide open spaces, when I didn't see any security folks around, and only at ~5mph.

  11. I tried the SBU once. I didn't find it nearly as compelling as EUC. Its close the experience of riding an actual unicycle, which can be fun but doesn't feel a dynamic of magical as riding a EUC. I think of the main problems is that basically "stiff" from the waist down when riding with a saddle and the control comes mostly from your hips, which doesn't feel very elegant. With the EUC you can use your whole body including your legs and it feels more dynamic, responsive and natural.

  13. The official specs say the max speed is 16 but it looks like in practice its a little more and it certainly can have momentary peaks of a much more before slowing you down with tilt back. I'm guessing the xtreme has a pentameter odometer in its like the newer gotways, and once the bluetooth app comes out you will be able to see you on overall milage using that. (I would be very disapointed if that was not a feature of the app anyway). We could even try to explore the bluetooth LE properties to extract this information before the official app is released. No problem! Thanks for sharing y

  14. I tried some of what you guys were suggesting about foot adjustments while riding. Also what @Jag_Rip suggested about avoiding foot fatigue. Very helpful indeed. Your explanations are helping me greatly. I will practice unassisted mount more now that I know how to adjust the feet during the ride. The shape (what I want to call 'form factor') of the Ninebot One is quite different from the Airwheel X8, so it is almost learning to mount all over again. All the angles and pressure points are different. Still I can do it, but need more practice, which hopefully I will now get. Being able to

  15. If you're thinking of recharging your wheel by solar panels, forget about it... My Firewheel charger gives off about 130W (67.2V and around 1.75-2A), and takes 2.5 hours to charge the 260Wh battery from empty to full. Here's what I wrote about using solar panels to charge the wheel in another topic: The ones you linked are probably around 1 to 5W? One of those I checked says it takes 13 hours to fully charge a single 1800mAh cell (4.2V * 1.8Ah = 7.56Wh), and Ninebot One E+ has 320Wh battery... Edit: Sorry if I sounded blunt above, but the idea of charging the wheel batteries with solar panels

  16. My hill on my commute is on gravel and its not a flat road at all, hence the "preparation". On a hill on paved roads I just make sure I dont lean forward, but stay straight up and hold my speed by tiptoe-ing slightly. For my gravel hill just I slide my feet a bit towards the front (millimeters only) and also slide my ankles closer together to squeeze the bot tight so it doesnt do funny things on the loose gravel. I also bend my knees a teensy little, just so that I dont have my weight on the bones but on the muscles to feather out any bumps or dirtholes. I like forums, because 20 years from n

  17. While when it comes to motor power, "bigger is better", why it's hard to say much with just something like the stated rated / maximum power of the motor has many reasons, this is based on what I've understood of the motors so far: Different motors have different powercurves, here's some example curve from the MIT DC motor-page: http://lancet.mit.edu/motors/torquepowerspeed.jpg This is just some small dc motor, as you can see the, the peak power is only little over 5W. The torque drops linearly (in ideal case, real world might be different) from the full torque at "Stall torque" (maximum torqu

  18. Well here's the second attempt. I think it's an improvement, just wish I knew a way to stop the rear facing camera from giving a mirrored view.

  19. Well there goes my experience concerning "hop on" vs "skate kick". I did the hop on trick in the beginning, worked fine until I was standing at a pedestrian crossing and both lanes stopped to let me through despite heavy traffic. So I hop on, wobble a bit, lean forward and get caught in the small dip between sidewalk and road. Yup. Faceplant with an audience on the first trip in public, 20 meters from my home. Taught me. Since then I skate it for great justice. You could start to train the movement slowly while holding on to a wall or your car (I wouldnt dare on mine though). Or train to cont

  20. Once you are on and going try lifting the heel of one foot. You'll find as you do you will turn towards that side but concentrate on keeping straight by adjusting your weight on the other foot. Once you are going straight with one heel up you will find it easy to adjust the position of that toe backwards or forwards with a slight swiveling action. As with all things practice it with both feet so you can adjust both side. A quicker but more difficult alternative is to learn to ride on one foot then you can casually place your free foot exactly where you want it. I find this painful though as it
