  2. Hey everyone ! First post in this forum ^^ Lately i'm having so much fun dancing and freestyling on my inmotion v5f and also started doing some video edits. Now i'm feeling confident enough to start sharing some of my work. This is the first piece of a long serie ! Any kind of feedback would be much appreciated ! =) Peace out :>

  3. Last year I chased down a robber and got the victim's money back, and posted about it here. Tomorrow the brewers are honoring me by releasing a delicious bock beer, named Unicycle Vigilante! Here is a picture of the label flat and on a can. Also an Instagram post about it from the brewery.

  4. Open EUC World and make sure your wheel is connected. Make sure you aren't recording a tour or logging data (the CSV icon on the main screen should be white; if it's green, just tap on it to stop data logging). Go to settings >> General settings >> Battery, and choose the "Standard" algorithm instead of the "optimized" one.

  5. @Hsiang dream wheel! Spot on, although I didn’t find it as much a detriment as you did. Best way to describe this wheel for me is a jumbo sized MSX; if you like the MSX/RS you’ll love this wheel. I hope they use this 3 week production delay and tweak soft mode for comfort as this wheel is meant for the street not off-road. And yes, Sheman is the best wheel I ever owned, still brings me great joy to keep up with cars on 45 mph roads in Long Island.

  6. The lessons learned in any single interaction are individual albeit personal reflections with a specific outcome. The overall odds speak to the average outcome. Where and when you or I ever become a statistic is a major portion of the equation. When looking at all reported crashes regardless of injuries the fatality rate for EUC riders to date is pretty low. The point that I'm making here is that it is important to give up fatalistic notions and to recognize that most collisions are avoidable, and that the odds of us even becoming a static are small. The EUC rider has an excellent m

  7. With BeJesus and Vet, pre-production is production if pre-production is production is..... Thanks to @evX_Mick for the tryout of the 24Pro, further validating my decision not to buy this wheel, despite me being the biggest fan of large format EUCs (honestly, I'm waiting for something bigger than this *cough* Veteran @Linnea Veteran *cough*) If you're truly a fan of the original Monster and not afraid of a little pedal "dip", considering it more advantageous tool than defect, then the 24 "Monster Pro" is only alike to the Monster in name only, not in ride feel.

  8. Tommy - A long time Hawaii (Oahu) rider here (KS). As far as riding gear...I just wear shorts and t-shirt. As far as safety gear, I wear elbow & knee pads; wrist guards and I have a couple different helmets, but my POC 360 Spin is my favorite. I don't overheat and am quite comfortable. That said, I think you adjust and find what works for you over time. And like most riders, you will eventually suffer a good wipe out. Here is Hawaii, the biggest problem is the damn thorns for the trees. Last year I had 8 flats....8!!! That's a LOT of tubes and a lot of disassemble/re-assemble.

  9. I guess I should actually reply to the original post as well! I hate helmets with a passion, particularly as I am mainly a fair weather rider so I don't need the warmth or rain protection. Unfortunately for me, it's a necessary evil. If I was on a scooter I might not, but the fear of a faceplant at anything over 10mph terrifies me. But yes, having to wear a full face helmet, even a vented MTB one, in the middle of a UK summer is a royal PITA and does hinder the experience for me somewhat. The only time I can remember not wearing one was when I was learning in my grassed back garden.

  10. Looking at the torn jeans and grazing, one can only assume that the knee pad either moved or wore through? Are they hard-shell? do they fit properly? This is one of the reasons I have moved to tight-fitting (against the skin) knee pads with plastic sliders. They aren't moving anywhere, and because they have sliders the friction abrasion won't (shouldn't) pull them up or down. I have seen too many injuries on people where the pad has been moved up or down the limb, exposing fragile flesh. Most MTB/cycle padding isn't fit for EUC purpose on tarmac. You really have to go to MX or in fac

  13. I’ll have to disagree with the part in bold. As you said, pedestrians are unpredictable, especially if there are shop windows around, or blind corners such as the shop door. She definitely shouldn’t have run out from the shop like that. But that’s what pedestrians do, and knowing that fact we can avoid crashing to them with great probability. Of course there are large differences in city planning all over the world, but generally I would expect that riding in front of shop doors and windows can be, and should be avoided for this exact reason. But I’m definitely happy to hear that bot

  15. Thanks! I don't use it but I know exactly how it works. Because it is EUC related. I have an android and a pebble for testing purposes. There are many riders in the group and I help them with their EUC World settings so that we can keep accidents to a minimum, have proper representation of battery usage, etc.

  16. I think Silver Branch is only local delivery and sales, are a few local retail outlets like Fenwick Beer and Wine may also carry it but I don't know if they can ship outside Maryland. I'll check with them today and see if they have a way to send any out. That picture is of Ray, their delivery manager. That's what the van will look like when he makes my delivery, but he's only half done loading.

  17. That's exactly the point I was making, I appreciate riding without a helmet isn't the most sensible thing to do but the risk of injury needs to be offset against the added pleasure of riding without. Isn't any sport simply a case of evaluating risk against pleasure?

  18. I use three apps! EUC World when I want to be silly with AVAS or when I want a detailed log of my ride. DarknessBot when I want the more functional watch features I get with Cupertino watch vs Pebble. I have to use the KingSong app to check my state of charge because the other two aren’t even close (my 16XS is a little strange and not popular so I’m neither surprised nor upset—DB is trying to correct a bug/feature? that makes it declare the battery is always 100% and EUCWorld thinks my battery is simultaneously running an electric oven). Yeah, the display on the Pebble is dated and I can’t hon

  19. I am just baffled by a post like this. Even the thread title makes me go? "Ehh so what reaction were you hoping to get?" So my 2cent comment goes like this: I guess most of us live in a free world and can make our own choices. Whiter what app we prefer or if you want to chip in to assist the developer is a choice to make too. @Seba has been very clear that he started EUC. WORLD to make something different to his liking and it is a project run by a 1 person development. But he has many times over also shown he can add or fix things fast if it is reported constructively to

  20. This summer I had an unexplained cut-off. Something that everyone is afraid of and that you have to be prepared for. If you ride a lot, sooner or later something like that will happen. And believe me, when it happens, there is no time to react. You will realize the fact that something has happened when you're already on the ground. I fell down and hit the road surface with left side of my head. I was riding slowly (no more than 25 km/h) and carefully, it was one of my many touristic cross-country rides. I ended up with a slight concussion, abrasions and contusions. Nothing serious. Howeve

  21. Great question but likely an answer that only we ourselves can provide. Perhaps an equally valid (&mayhaps better) question would be .... how much is a crash/s saved or avoided worth? Again, the answer would be totally personal. FWIW there are options for pricing if that's an issue. The EX is available for <$2.9k on an Ali store with a pretty good rep. Again its gonna be personal on whether its worth saving $600. For me, it might be as our online stores in Canada don't have the kinda service ewheels have & shipping the entire thing back/forth isn't gonna be cheap. If its just a

  23. The 3.3cm seems to be a miss understanding caused by the picture. The picture does not actually show a difference of anything at all. They are two completely different measurements measuring two completely different things. They have absolutely nothing to do with each other. One shows the measurement at the hinge the other shows the measurement at the outer edge.

  24. Hello Guys, Info I received today : The height of the pedals would be raised by 1 cm (info from my dealer requested directly from Veteran). The height on my August 2020 Sherman is 13.5 cm (height between the pedal axle and the ground) and 18 cm at the outer end of the pedal. (Edit : little mistake in first mesures I gave 12.5 and 17 cm. When I had a discussion this week again on Sherman height I realized the 0 is 1 cm above the ground on my pictures) According to my contact the image posted above is wrong. The diagram is not clear (12.5 cm is the current Sherman and

  26. I totally feel you and you're right. I was actually worried I had lost teeth when it happened. But my answer to this is not to keep riding at 20 km/h on footpaths, plus add the dangerous helmet to that equation. As @Planemo had suggested, the only way to avoid these things is to go at walking speed. Or I believe at the very most 10 km/h which is 6 mph. This is what I'll be doing if I ride on the foot path. And I won't have the helmet on for that. And I don't need to ride on the foot path that often. Plenty of good roads and bike paths around. It may have been completely her fault b

  28. From what I've been reading, getting a V11 as a first wheel could lead to "bad riding habits." Can anyone elaborate on this? Also, the V11 does seem rather fragile. I saw the video where someone in NYC wiped out on one and pretty much destroyed it. I guess I'm a little torn. I get the idea about buying a cheaper wheel to learn on (maybe a V8F would work for me) but I don't like the idea of spending nearly $1000 on a learner wheel only to outgrow it in 2-3 months and then dropping another 2 grand on the one I really want. Would you consider learning to ride an EUC on an Inmotio

  29. Most of chinese bearings have bad cealing. I've got two V8 eucs and both got problems with their bearings after say month of daily winter riding (noises) and a month later one of them got backlash. I replaced the bearings with ones of high quality (SKF) and rode for almost two years (including winter of course) without bearing issue. The scenario of this problem is always the same. No matter how good the metal of the bearing is. First the water with the mud comes through the cealing and starts the abrasive action on metal parts (balls and races). Then at some moment a backlash froms between

  31. If I was riding riding in front of the shop door...... 1. She would not have needed to sprint at me to cause the accident. 2. I would not be surprised at all that this happened 3. She probably wouldn't have apologized but rather would be wanting to sue me I was well away from the shop door. I'd say at least 10 feet. I always ride as far away from shop doors as the path allows. This also applies to anywhere that people may appear from unexpectedly. Such as entrances to the beach for example. I'm a very careful person in anything I do including driving a car.

  32. Side note, get some heavy duty Velcro for your Sherman seat. After two crashes the seat stayed attached and also offered some protection to the top of the wheel.

  33. Totally agree. Stock pedals are fine. I am not going to pay a premium for a first generation technology that may or may not last the duration of the wheel that they are mounted on. That is my personal opinion and I hold no judgement for those moving forward with this product (which I would buy at a reasonable price).

  42. My riding starts by researching on Google maps. In my city, Google have bike lane over lay by green lines. I slowly estimate my range and choose a region that I can reach to explore. I go out without a schedule but to keep safe and develop a mental register of what these paths feel like. Not all roads are clearly marked and have their deficiencies. Over days, weeks and months, I have registered paths that can get me to major areas that are decent commutes otherwise. Public planners have taken bicycle safety and accessibility in mind when they design these public paths. It is a blessing to

  48. For those who are interested... and I am sure there will be a few people interested - please go ahead and print yourself the accidental switch-off protector for Z10 which I have designed.... (tested in real life, I use it myself) It has 3 purposes: prevents accidental switch off - You have to press in specific point to switch the wheel ON and OFF It decreases the problem with front lamp of Z10 being switch off by any incoming car lights It works as the protector of the display against scratches. Print on any 3d printer from PLA or ABS, with thin layer like 0,05 mm.
