    You obviously haven't actually tried to do it then have you. For your info, I did pull the tube and patch it - then it went down again 3 weeks later - so this time I decided to replace the tube. To pull the tyre, hook the tube and then find the hole, patch and put it all back together will take the same amount of time as just replacing it. You'll see from my video, there is no need to touch the electrics - that was why I made the video, to make sure nobody makes the same mistakes I made. I'd love to see detailed instructions of 'pulling the axle and dropping the wheel - feel free to share.

    It's not really heat shrinking, but rather heating so it can stretch. It would be nice if you could heat shrink it to make it fit better, would be easier...

    RocketSkates, Electric Skateboards, most Electric Scooters, & the 'Hoverboard', all share the same fundamental flaw... Wheel diameters are too small. This is where the Electric Unicycle really excels, within the 14-18" sizes none of these other products are anywhere near as capable over the types of surfaces you encounter everyday.

    People continue to ride in spite of the risks, and in many cases after being injured, because the enjoyment outweighs the danger, just as it does for motorcycle riders, hang gliders, rock climbers, etc. However, sensible riding goes a long way towards minimizing possible injuries.

    My 17 year old son did even better. We are both snow skiers, ice skaters, water skiers, and ride and jump (including backflips) a sky ski. So we are used to balancing on stuff. The key is really understanding that to balance left and right you rotate the wheel left and right, you don't lean it in order to catch your balance, and you can't be a frozen statue. You have to actively rotate the wheel to catch your balance. It becomes subtle with speed and practice. Just wanted to share! We are loving it. We have to buy a second one because nobody wants to get off and let anyone else have a turn!

    You said 3 minutes. Here is your chance to put your money where your mouth is. If you can post a video of you completing this task in less than 3 minutes I will donate $50 to a charity of your choice. FYI - I have done it your way, (I have the scuffed knuckles to prove it) like I said, it went flat again after a few weeks - hence I decided to change the tube. by the time you get the tyre off, pull the tube out ... work the tyre and the tube off the rim, pump air back in (to find the hole), turn the rim to find the hole, let the air back out, find the hole again, patch it back up, put it all back together, re-inflate. I have nothing against patches, I will happily use them again, especially if I am out / away from home - this video is simply to help others who wish to change their inner tube.

    cheating a little. This was Calpe, Spain, yesterday. About 4 times bigger than Moraira but still beautiful. Yes, those are people sunbathing. About 2 miles of lovely smooth promenade to wheel along, and lots of nice restaurants.

    Changing the charging port plug type of a wheel even twice is a terrible decision. That I find very unprofessional, even if they would have very good reasons for their last change.

    This is a better look at the RocketSkates: (He actually has riden the V3s and V5F+ by Inmotion.) And he's actually ridden electric scooters.

    Thanks all for the feedback! Much appreciated. Concerning the European law which might allow EUC's limited at 25km/h in 2018 -> Even if that law is in place, countries can set stronger limitations. So even at that moment, Belgium (and maybe other countries) will still have the limitation of 18km/h. Is it a viable a business? I believe (and hope ) so. Today true, most EUC-drivers are mainly interested in them for their speed and fun. But as more and more people will start considering them as a commuter solution, speed will be less the primary reason to drive one. Today indeed policeman didn't stop me yet, although even some of them came driving next to me to check out my wheel and asked me questions about them But exactly as @Ponne says, especially if you ever cause (or are part of) an accident, then you'll definitely be screwed. And as EUC's become more popular, the knowledge about it will increase at law enforcement instances. Happened already in the Netherlands, where police stopped drivers and took their wheel. To end with some good news: King Song is willing to work with me to limit the speed without the possibility to unlock! I also contacted all the manufacturers of the EUC's suggested earlier. Thanks for that. If there are more quality-EUC ideas, do let us know!

    apps should have a password for parents who want's to limit the speed for young beginners

    I dont think any policeman wil stop you. But, in case you are part of a incident were people end up with serious injuries there will be a big problem with responsibilty and who is going to pay.

    I think the manual calibration had a few other steps involved. From Ninebot: 1.Take the Ninebot One vertically off the groud. Take care and keep it steady. 2.press power button and the wheel will spin strongly,hold it steady. 3.when you hear a sound of warning(di,di,di) and the leds flashing red, - press the power button and keep holding the button until the warning disapear. 4. long press again and keep holding the power button till you hear the Ninebot to warning again. 5. Release the power button, and you will see a flash of yellow light which meaning your Ninebot is carlibrating. 6. you will hear the warning(di,di,di) with red flashing again - that means your calibration is finished,and the Ninebot telling you that it is off the ground which is not a good idea. So put your Ninebot on the ground and see if your it is right calibrated now.
