    A bit of water fun

    Just a small update. I've been doing some more tests with my equipment here. 2 observations: 1) Both of my watches seem to keep a pretty solid connection with my wheel once they are initially connected. They also seem to have a pretty decent range, and keep connected consistently within 10 meters or so (depending on what's in the way). 2) I feel like the battery life should be much better if anyone's going to take this on a long ride. I'm dropping about 1% battery per minute, which I feel like is a bit high, even with the constant updating display. Before I go much further with anything else, I will be looking to improve efficiency.

    Welcome and congrats! 1) first week, feet hurt. ( it gets much easier) 2) 15 minutes a day and you will learn. 3) look forward not down. 4) foot position makes a difference. 5) protect the ankles and shins. They get hit during the learning period. Wear wrist guards and helmet. 6)

    IMPORTANT UPDATE ON LUTALO'S 18L FOR SALE IN PARIS. She's on the way home so I am cancelling the listing. I am going to keep my Black Beauty. Can hardly wait to see her again. 😍😍😍

    Well, I did not want to over react to your post. You are right, sort off, but... I am not sure the manufs ignore the US "footprint". This is a much bigger can of worms than you realize from a design point of view. I am not sure I really want to enter into a counter rant of 300 words. Suffice to say that pedal shape, height, length, angle and wheel sensitivity are a blend that is not as trivial as one may want to think specially considering the different riding styles that our wheels have to deal with. Enough said, for the moment... BTW this is why some people have so many different Wheels, they ride one for the "mood" they are in..

    A perfect EUC undercarriage wash system.

    I agree. They seem capable enough!

    I really don't think it is that syraight forward. Both electronics and mechanical parts are combined to make up an EUC. That itself makes predictions difficult. I will add more later to why. But in short it has to do with environment and how an item is used.

    No worries. It's easy my friend. Forgive me for not having photos to show you. 1. Remove black handle from the trolley stem. It's one screw for each side where the handle meets the stem. 2. Remove the screw at the bottom of the stem that attaches to the sensor plate. 3. Slide out the plate at the bottom of the stem. 4. Remove the screw holding the thin metal band across the stem 5. Slide out the stem; you don't need to remove the shell cap. So, don't waste time unwinding a bunch of unecessary screws. 6. Slide in the black stem 7. Replace metal plate at the bottom; remember not to overtighten this screw. The plate should have a little play. I usually don't go past the point where the screw stops winding; no added torqueing. 8. Retorque the screw holding the metal band over the stem. 9. Repeat process with stem on the opposite side. 10. Reinstall the handle. 11. Test operation of new trolley; move up and down, and lock and unlock. 12. Replace outer shells. 13. Go riding. 14. Have fun.

    For those in the Bay Area i was riding back across the Golden Gate Bridge last night after 9PM. The cycleway is closed then and the pedestrian pathway has a security gate after 9. I pressed the intercom but they refused to open the gate. I was told that 'motorized' devices are not allowed on the either the Cycleway (west side) or Pedestrian way (east side) . So I was totally stuck. You just cant take the roadway as it is too dangerous. After a 'discussion' security sent a patrol car whom offered me a ride. The pickup was in the east car park. So an OK outcome but food for thought for any one contemplating a bridge ride. My own take is that if you cross before 9pm then the cyclway is pretty much OK and although technically EUC's aren't allowed, you can go across mixing it with the bikes as long as you don't bring attention to yourself. My only recommendation is that it sure is windy up there and the path is narrow so make sure you are confident on your EUC before attempting. Longer term, I guess we need to lobby about this issue as its nuts that EUC's are banned when they are both safe and practical and in the future I expect we will see a lot more of them. Unlike the bikes whom all seem to think faster is better and travel at dangerous speeds the whole time on that cycleway. Its just a matter of time before someone is knocked over the edge!

    Thanks. I'm really hoping the "fix" doesn't involve any invasive procedures.

    Well seems simple enough, however I can't pull out the stem right now. If I clean out that black silicone I might be able to see why. I will have another view tomorrow and maybe make a short video of this, the problem.

    Pffff ... you should stay with the times. The functionality he described has existed for years now on euc's. It can be found in the Pulse Glider, to give one example.

    The solution to this problem is the black handle. Not sure why the dealer didn't install it when they know full well that the old type is faulty. Contact your dealer and and have them send you latest 3d iteration Black trolley stems; the handle doesn't get replaced anyway. I have had all three versions on my 18L. The 1st two broke within two months; so you are fortunate. My 18L has been wearing the third version without so much as a glitch for close to 7 months. The third version will solve all of your problems. I suggest getting it for your sanity even if you must buy it.

    In my world there is no hype. If you have driven a late model Honda Fit, you will quickly notice that the car kind of guess what you want. Performance or Economy. I would just like to have a similar algorithm for wheel hardness or sensitivity... Cruise or Wild. I don't want to take my phone out to change sensitivity while I am riding...(Could open another can of worms, as usual)

    I recently appeared on a TV show called "Car War" (la guerra del coche) about mobility. The channel was national, but put the program too late on the grid. I think I was trying to put perspective on the revolution of mobility and climate change. https://www.antena3.com/noticias/especiales/reportajes-a3n/vehiculos-movilidad-personal-luchan-asfalto-trafico-carril-bici-video_201902195c6dcda70cf28d1a9812e311.html

    I've all the protection and i'm not push it too hard, just let it go. The more you ride and the more you naturally go faster with this wheel. And on you hit the limit and get tiltback, it's a really bad feeling. So the game is to find your natural speed limit, and for me it's 53km/h i've never hit more, so with the limit to 56km/h it's perfect for me, i don't take the tiltback anymore and the ride experience is a lot better. I'm not crazy, i just listen my body, my feeling and the wheel.

    Voice. "May I pass on your left please!". Weighs nothing...costs nothing...and informational so that in most cases people step to the right (although the muppets out there have been known to step left into your path). Most people thank me for warning them as I pass (too many joggers and cyclists just blow past slower traffic with no warning and little noise causing them to get a scare). Some however, in their own oblivious earbud music filled world, jump out their skins anyway but that is their problem for not being aware of their surroundings. I never pass if there is insufficient room. I just shout louder.
