  1. There is a large contingent of delivery guys on EUCs in NYC, which is actually perfect for how dense our population is Contrary to popular belief, it is more than possible to average $20-25 an hour doing deliveries if you know your territory, which restaurants are time wasters and travel efficiently. Some of these guys don’t go home until they make $300 a day, and it’s a reasonable and realistic goal. Guys can do something they love (ride) while being well compensated for it ($1500 a week is nothing to sneeze at). With that said, the most popular delivery wheels here appear to be

  2. It was intentional. I wanted this function to be fault-tolerant and easy to use for everyone, including "non-technical" guys. By storing two values that reflect the actual states of the unicycle we can avoid errors that could cause the battery level to be incorrect. For many users, voltage is a mysterious, scientific parameter. However, no one has a problem distinguishing when the unicycle is fully charged and when it is discharged. Simple - when the green LED on the charger lights up, so press "Set as 100%". When you can't ride anymore, press "Set as 0%". Of course it's possible to add d

  4. I haven't been able to test at high speeds for long distances yet, but it seems to perform great with the new board. I have ridden up to 30mph seated, which was impossible even at low speeds before. I doubt there'll be any issues, and if there are I'll definitely post them here, but for the time being I'm going to assume my wheel's been fixed as well

  5. Verdict? One thing to note is that you may need to reset your wheel settings. I used the EUC World app and all the settings appeared to be the same as I had them before. However, when I went to ride, I felt the harsh tilt back when approaching 15 mph. Along with the soft pedal settings the wheel first comes with. After connecting with the Gotway app and resetting each setting and re-calibrating the wheel, everything was back to normal with tilt back off. The new controller appears to be running very smooth. No issues. I've only been up to 24 mph, but so far looking real good. Need to go o

  7. Upcoming EUC World update will bring many new features. One of them is heart rate monitoring using connected smartwatch. The idea of this feature came up when working on a watch app. I accidentally discovered that my heart rate is surprisingly high for a typical daily commute - something that always seemed to be not associated with any strain on the body. So I was so curious that I decided to add option to include heart rate in tour data and CSV logs. New app release will also include motor temperature for KS-18L, KS-18XL and KS-16X. Also various alarms are recorded and displayed on

  8. The tax rate for most of us needs to be above 45% because the few people who make the most money get paid in preferred stock (which is stock that's redeemed at whatever the company says it is), and hence have a tax rate of 15%. In reality, the tax rate for the rich is much less than 15%, due to tax laws like doner-advised funds which allows you to give minimal amounts to charity funds without actually giving any money at all to charities, yet keeping control of said money while receiving essentially a permanent tax deduction. The US drug problem that kills so many people while turni

  9. I have put 40 miles on my Glide 3/V8 over two weekends. Have a couple observations. I learned to step mount. Saw a video online where a guy stepped on, off, on off ... as an exercise...like 60 times in a row, so I learned that. I have tried to mount with my other foot several times and I have been able to do it every time. Odd, seems I can step mount from either foot. Might come in handy. Is it good to learn to ride/mount ambidextrously? The miles really pile up quickly on this thing. Seriously, a few 20 - 40 minute runs in a day and you have 15 miles it's crazy. I did a dry ru

  11. I did the Uber Eats and the Bird scooter recharge. I don't recommend doing the Uber Eats with a wheel, but maybe with an electric bicycle. 1. You know where to pick up but not where to drop off. Often, the distance will be 7 miles or greater, and delivery is centered around a high speed car or perhaps a faster electric scooter. 2. Uber Eats has this weird tipping that I couldn't figure out, sometimes the tip is included while other times it isn't, but it seemed the hourly wage for me was about $2 per hour, including waiting around. There was a lot of waiting around. I made aroun

  12. While I'm eagerly waiting for the EUC World Tizen App, here are some information about what else the Watch has to offer. For me the watch covers all the applications I need while riding. It also fits perfectly on the Flexmeter Wrist Guards and is attached within 10 seconds by the quick release fasteners. So it can be worn with a normal wrist strap even if you still need a watch after the EUC riding. What I like especially: - long battery life despite navigation and constant use of all listed apps - Display turns on automatically when I lift my arm to look at it or whe

  13. ie. Uber Eats - that sort of thing. So really just looking at the longer-range EUCs here if I'm going to get ~60 miles for a shift. Had a hard look at my options and decided that while the Monster would be ideal for range purposes, the lack of a handle would make it a pain when doing deliveries (ie. wouldn't manage stairs well, challenging to take it in with me off the street). Would anyone who's had experience with the Kingsong 18XL and/or the Gotway Monster (or similar rides), or has experience using a wheel as a workhorse be able to weigh in? Could the 16X work? That was my first choice as

  14. After a ride to my grandma through rain and mud , it was time to clean my XL today. First step was to let it spin in the shower tub. Second step: wiping it down with a damp cloth. And Voila it almost looks brand new even after 3000km. Thanks to the bodyguard from roll.nz @The Fat Unicyclist Bodyguard is also still in great shape.

  18. It's either a wheel or a pickup truck with a flatbed. Maybe an eBike with soft panniers would work well. Bird scooters are locked to 5 mph when you capture them. Since you cannot ride them on the sidewalk (legally) and 5 mph is too slow for any street, and the places you release them are too far away at walking speed, I can only conclude Bird wants you to use pickup trucks. However, I would use a wheel to quickly get to a scooter, and push the scooter at much higher speeds, usually above 18 mph. Two scooters is easier, because the torque of braking and acceleration doesn't spin or make yo

  19. Like @RockyTop, I've been homeless briefly, although in my case twice in my life. The misery of being homeless, plus a lot of luck and minor help from family members, quickly made me get off my lazy ass and hustle. I wonder if everyone should be homeless as a right of passage. Going back to topic, "should the rich be taxed", isn't the right question. Here's the right question: Do you give more in handouts to the rich than you get back in taxes from them? And it's a stupid simple question to answer, with the result that people who defend not taxing the rich must be willfully igno

  20. One thing about skiing helmets is that there is not much need for good airflow in the winter, so they may be unbearably hot in the summer. I would look at downhill bicycle helmets first. Or the Cratoni C-Maniac I’ve been using for a fee years, which is almost a regular bicycle helmet with a removable chin guard. I’d guess it to be the lightest helmet with a chin guard. (400-500g).

  23. Similar situation to me of course. Weather is bad and wheel is stored in the basement since end of October ... I received my KS-18L seat some days ago and can confirm @Enthusiast ´s observation. Quality is better than expected and really fits well on wheel ´s upper side. We should have in mind that its type of stick-on connection is not save at all so I´m thinking of some kind of velcro type solution. Being so curious I started some training in my basement with (of course limited) seated riding (or manouvering). It feels more natural than expected at a measured height of 64 cm (25,2"). K

  24. This is a very tough subject. When you compare the poor in one country to the poor in another you tend to see a difference in the word poor. I do not want to be a poor person in the US yet I have to question the word poor when the poor are more than a little over weight and walking around with smart phones. Many of the homeless are homeless because of drugs and or mental problems, likely caused by drugs. I do agree that some of the hardest working people are poor. You can’t settle. You have to find what you are good at and others are not. It does not matter how many times you fail. It only mat

  33. I must of missed that sentence! None of the folk I met had drug issues. The women and children in vans that I met tended to be escaping abusive relationships. Most of the families I met living in tents simply weren't earning enough to break out of their current existence. I can easily imagine even simple health issue bankrupting many families. That culture of the "American dream" suggests that anyone can make it but I promise you that not everyone does.

  34. That's a powerful story Rocky and well told but I don't think you're alone. In my late twenties I spent a year travelling around America on a secondhand motorbike and sleeping rough in a tent. I wasn't poor but just liked to travel that way. I was amazed at the number of people I met who were living in poverty in what was then the richest country on Earth. Sometimes it would just be a mother and child living in the back of a van trying to get by, sometimes it would be whole communities living in tents in the woods, other times it would just be trailer park folk that weren't really that much be

  38. Have had my V8 since April. 4750+ km on it, still on the original tire. Have had zero issues with it despite being a heavy rider. I've ridden it in rain, thunderstorm and hail. On dry surfaces, wet surfaces, mud, gravel, wet leaves, ice... I've carried 20kg shopping in a backpack, a crate of wine, a 3.60m curtain rod and a mattress on it. Most of my colleagues and family have tried it and dropped it. I've dropped it a fair number of times as well as it was my first wheel. Only thing I ever did was tighten the pedals and replace one of the side panels after a learning crash in the first we

  39. I have had my V8 for a year, and have put 1000 miles on it. I have had it cut out a few times, mostly my fault. I have replaced the tube 3 times. I also put the wider 2.125 tire on it and have been pleased with the result. All in all, it is a great wheel. The main reason I upgraded was to get a higher top end and greater range. 15 miles is the farthest I have gone and 15 mph is the highest speed it seems to maintain.

  41. So.... he’s doing the Superman? 🤦🏾‍♂️ There are other considerations to take into account for accelerating other than what gets you there the fastest.... like safety. It just so happens that leaning from a sideways posture not only allows you to put more of your mass forward by allowing you to not lose your balance as easily (compared to leaning straight forward) but it also puts you in a position to not face plant. BTW, putting your arms straight behind you on forward lean would allow you to accelerate faster than putting them straight in front of you. Using arms behind you let’s

  42. I'm getting ready to put my 18XL back together after I finish installing a new motor. I noticed that King Song has added a bunch of white caulk around the connections to the motor (also to the battery), which I had to remove to get the old motor out. Am I right that it's just normal silicone caulk? I have done stuff that I used around the bathroom tub, but I'm not really sure it's the same stuff, or if it's really that important to reapply in the first place.

  43. We have an ONYX bike rider that come out to the group ride regularly. I always stare at his back wheel and that 6000w motor and think how great it would be if I had that in my monster. Gotway seems to just use one motor and adapt it to all their wheels, I know for the monster at least the 2000w motor feels under powered. it would be nice if they push the motor design but I have no idea if they are at all plugged in as to what we want.
