  1. What's happening y'all? Hello to the millions of new forum members...hope your ENJOYing yer riding! It's been quite a while since I posted a video here, I been busy producing my new album (it's sounding killer! New music video at the bottom of post). So, here's a playlist of some more of my original tricks. All clips are short single trick videos running under 30seconds. (Simply keep watching for next video...or click the link in the upper left by the title to see the playlist of tricks. Enjoy.) I got lots of new tricks to film, just need to find a better camera somet

  2. I received my KS14D Parts a couple weeks back and thought I would post a couple before and after Pictures. And a couple explanations. My poor baby...everything's gonna be ok! New Parts.....F yeah! I was pretty damn amped to get this shiny new body on that sexy frame. Fenders, lights, electronics, pedals, pads, screws and more plastic. So I took her apart like this...in the kitchen. Lol. Ok, maybe not to the girlfriend. Quick test to check the batteries...make sure all is in order. Had to take a skeleton ride real quick for fun.

  4. Riding my girlfriend on my back while going uphill at night on a shitty wheel. The wheel shall not be named...but its name starts with ....a mixture of invisible odorless tasteless gases (such as nitrogen and oxygen) and ends with a circular component that is intended to rotate on an axle bearing. 3 or 4 stitches. I screamed like a baby when I hit the ground, never even got my hands in front of me. From what she says "we fell as you scooted me up higher" either way the wheel simply gave out. Thank god she didn't get hurt...at all.

  5. I was on the fence for a while between the Gotway Tesla and King Song 16S. When it came down to it, reliability was more important than having a bit more speed, power and battery capacity. I can ride a little slower (not that 22MPH is slow at all) and for less distance whenever I want. But I can't ever ride a broken EUC.

  7. Thanks @dbfrese ! Both for stalking me (I think) and appreciating my world. I'm not sure if It's a bit off topic (like that has ever stopped me before), but there are photos, so... A few years back we bumped into a "metalwork artist" (who ended up in Wellington for some work on Lord of the Rings) and his passion is to work with recycled material. So he scavenged around and got a whole lot of crap for free, welded it together and charged a fortune for it all - and we love them - worth every penny! Here is a picture for all of you without such significant stalking skills...

  9. Odd injury for sure. The piggy back ride means ya hands are interlocked behind the back plus the hill puts my face 30 degrees closer to the ground then add the 100lbs of my girl on my back and....yep my hands were useless.

  11. Those look suspiciously like push-ups to me and should be disqualified because they appear to be exercise. As you know, riding an EUC is "cheating" and should require no physical effort.

  14. I'm not in Seattle but I do own all three models. I did a demonstration this past summer ascending a 20% grade. Here are some shorts clips I threw together for your review. The ACM 1600 definitely has more power than the KS16S and V8 but you would be fine climbing hills in SW with any of these wheels.

  16. For me an EUC is more practical than an ebike but only because the city I live in is only 7 miles wide with heavy congestion and high incidence of bike theft. There are not always places to lock up a bike in the immediate vicinity so the ability to bring the wheel in unobtrusively is a big benefit. I am also able to easily bring the wheel with me into an uber, bus, or train if I have a few too many drinks or need to go across a bridge which doesn't allow electric unicycles (also no ebikes). This specific use case fits EUCs very well but the majority of people do not live with this exact set of

  23. Both are good choices. I'm not from Seattle, but some thoughts: V8 is over a year old and there will be a bigger battery V8 successor (we don't know more, just confirmed rumors of its existence, something like 840Wh like the 16S, no idea about motor power) in 2 months or so. Meanwhile, the 16S is only a few months old. Both wheels should fare well in rain. I've literally ridden the V8 for one hour in the rain and it was no problem at all. 16S will be the same. Even Gotways are quite rain resistant, rain is not such a big issue for electric unicycles as one might think. Same for rid

  24. Today there are several norms in the automotive business that are more or less all derivation of the ISO13849, at least regarding the base principles https://www.iso.org/standard/69883.html starting with a risk analysis an EUC that goes over 30 km/h requires a performance level D in my opinion In the business a PLD is achieved with a good reliability of components (nothing too high to be honest but it has to be calculated) a decent diagnostic coverage (so the ability of the system to diagnose and find out failures) and an architecture in category 3, so redundant!

  29. Indeed. Even though the temps are above freezing today, there are patches that are very slippery. The ground is very close to the freezing point, so just adding warmer air doesn't guarantee that there's no ice. I put on a blue kenda "winter/mud" tire, but it seems I misaligned the puncture protection bands I added to it, because it vibrates a little sideways. I'll have to take it apart again this weekend to see if I can get it to work right, if so I can probably add the studs and be safer.

  30. Nice work! Does new electronics mean new board? If yes, why? Was it broken and the incentive to refresh your wheel, or just replaced preemptively?

From their most recent press released six days ago: Nexeon Leads Major Project Aimed at Doubling Range of Next Generation EVs The research money they have received is part of the ISCF Faraday Challenge: Batteries for Britain. Page 11 of the details of the requirements for the challenge state under the heading of Importance: National importance of this research on a 10-50 year timescale So maybe they have the theory down. And maybe they produced a sample in the lab. But the biggest hurdle is to scale it up for mass production which is what kills many new promising t

  37. I guess the BT module got bad, and if it uses the same board with LHOTZ probably its integrated into the main board. If you're comfortable to open it, you can verify that the BT antenna is still attached to the board though before concluding it's faulty. The mainboard is enclosed in a rubber sealed casing so without the antenna, the BT signal might be too weak to connect to the phone.

  39. Inmotion makes One-wheel skateboards too, and their hoverboards are available on the Brookstone catalog and their mall stores as well, so there is some sort of American National distribution pipeline that SoloWheel would get access to. It is much easier to innovate product lines in a chinese factory right now. Solowheel may have a winning formula if Inmotion is properly positioned to start pushing more EUCs off the drawing boards and onto the product line. I was also teased by their Customer service agent for Inmotion that I would really like what they have in store for 2018 with regards

  40. Link to the interview? Well, guess now we know what is (was?) wrong with Solowheel: Oh God Translation: "Every bullshit matters except the actual product". Which is the exact opposite of reality, only the product matters. Everyone here would exclusively buy from "The Adolf Hitler and his Child Molesting Advocates Wheel Manufacturing Co." if they had the clearly best wheels. This sounds like typical startup bullshit that people use (and worse, apparently really believe) when they're missing an actual reason why people would make them successful.

  41. I appreciate Solowheel making a presence here on the forum. Knowing you are here listening a reading what we discuss is great and can only help advance EUC design. I also want to say that I agree with @meepmeepmayer that any negativity towards Solowheel is to the company and not to its representatives on here who are just as enthusiastic about EUCs as we all are. Please don't take any negative comments or criticism personally. I don't think anyone on here would ordinarily wish ill upon any EUC company out there, however to this point Solowheel had demonstrated itself to have gone from an

  43. I'm glad you brought that up! The Iota is actually staying with Inventist, so our Solowheel team isn't running that project. By that I mean, it's not a result of our partnership with InMotion. While I'm not affiliated with Iota, I can tell you that just like many other crowdfunded projects, the unfortunate delay is due to developing a new product that is breaking ground in a few different areas. I've seen the earlier prototype with my own eyes, and it's a tiny little sight to behold. They will get it all ironed out! If there are any Iota backers reading this, you can reach out to Inventist if
