  1. Please stay on topic (Dogs chasing EUC riders) and on the right side of the border between what is a strong expression of an argument and what is a personal insult. Thanks

  2. This is the Michelin City Pro tire. I bought it after i ran a flat for the 2nd time, might as well try something new. Wow! what a facelift What i noticed right away was that the rubber and sidewalls where much stiffer, this makes it possible for me to ride with even lower PSI and get the same dampening, while keeping the same control as with the stock tire. So by default, i use around 30/35 psi, now i could get away with just 20 psi. 1st thought from the first few meters of rolling, "damn this is smooth" Almost no sound from the tire at all, and it felt planted solid to the g

  3. Discussing the level of capitalism in China or the current affairs of the EUC markets is interesting, but has absolutely nothing to do with the choices the OP has right now. Which is why this thread was started in the first place. @EUChristian, it doesn’t matter whether we or the OP accepts the state of affairs or not, the OP has two choices right now: Ship it back for warranty service or replace the faulty part oneself. Looking from the manufacturers point of view, the bearings they originally chose turned out to be incompatible for the intended usage. After just 1 or 2 bearings inc

  4. This is an important subject, since pretty much every rider will face the situation at some point. But your tips might not be the best ones, since you didn’t consider why dogs attack us in the first place. As you can clearly see on the video, the dog is not barking at the rider. It’s barking at the EUC. Dogs are able to differentiate the EUC as a separate entity to the rider. I have heard of two sensible explanations for dogs attacking the EUC: 1) The high pitched tones that come from the EUC any time it’s powered on. We can also hear a few of those whining tones, and I’m

  5. I disagree with the premiss that market pressures are forcing poor quality. We are recieving poor quality because the market is so small. People are buying every new wheel that comes out and the older models quickly become all but obsolete. We have far from optimized the machine yet, and until the machine has achieved its "final form" we will not recieve the highest quality. I do think its headed that direction, prices are going up, models are becoming more performance heavy. But by buying the new model, you are making the quality issue completely obsolete. We demonstrate our

  6. I've been chased by a Collier and the owner tried to blame me for his dog almost ran over by a car. This dog would chase skateboarders, EUC riders... and the dog was off leash. I think the issue is solely on the shoulders of dog owners on training their dogs properly. Most dogs don't chase people at least not when they are leashed and under the dog owners' control. The dogs that chase people and are off leash do because they aren't trained not to chase people. EUC riders do not always know where these dogs are coming from and should not have to be responsible for their behaviors. Anyways, when

  7. As my favorite form of EUC riding is long distance journeys, the route of which usually leads through rural areas, "meetings" with dogs are frequent. In the past I simply tried to speed up and run away, but I found out that even small dogs can run surprisingly fast. One day I stopped, turned around in front of the dog and it turned out that the dog stopped chasing me. He stood at a certain distance from me and all he did was bark. When I then resumed my ride, the dog did not try to chase me. It turned out that this method worked well in all subsequent cases. So far the effectiveness is 100 %.

  8. Please learn about how traffic works in these places. Read some of the other posts about this. I myself have been to Manila in the Philippines and it's complete chaos. Asking someone to stop in the middle of the road because they see an old lady crossing in the distance is completely absurd in that context. If you had to do that you'd be stopping every 50 metres causing an accident every time. Like others have said, when you cross the road in these places you simply walk onto the road and hope the traffic blends around you. Or you do some frogger style moves as you progress.

  9. It is not and should not be my responsibility to become an expert on or even to have to consider the psychology of someone else's pet to go about my daily life in public. People doing a perfectly acceptable thing like riding a bike/PEV/etc in human spaces (not out tormenting wildlife in a national park on a dirtbike or something) should be free to do so without fear of being attacked or having an accident caused by someone else's pet which is not being properly controlled. It is pet owners' responsibility to train their animals how to behave appropriately in public, or such animals don't belon

  10. Ahh, a mail carriers best friend. Oh but wait, the owner always says "he/she doesn't bite" while the dog comes up and bites you on the leg when you have a handful of packages and a scanner in the other hand... I encounter them daily on my route and it's my belief that people don't know canines at all, pets are a lot of responsibility and guess what, if your dog bites me while delivering a parcel to your porch, it's the property owners fault. It is my belief that there are no bad dogs and they're bread to chase things, part of being a dog, it's the owners that I have a problem with. Rant ov

  11. You are giving up way too easily! It is supposed to be hard and painful at first. If it wasn't then it wouldn't be as rewarding and addictive as it is. It takes most people a week or two before they can really ride, people that claim it only took them one day are extremely rare (and often dishonest). Just spend 30-60 minutes a day practicing the basics: getting on and off, and supporting yourself while moving along with a wall or fence. Make little tiny baby steps and it will get easier and easier everyday. Then one day it will "click" and you'll instantly be addicted and sudden

  13. Hey everyone. Glad to finally get here I’m kind of a new rider. I bought a KS16x about 4 months ago as my first EUC and wanted to share my experiences so far. First off I’ll mention that I first rode escooters for a year then eskates for a year before even considering an EUC. Any 1 wheeled device seemed so strange and super dangerous Now that I’m a proficient rider I will definitely say that EUCs are a lot safer than escooters. At least the one I had (Dualtron Raptor). And a lot safer than eskates too. I actually broke my arm on an escooter thanks to a tiny bump on the bike pa

  15. This EUC thingy has its own subculture and we are all "guilty" of modifying the culture to what we have today. The whole concept of "1st/2nd batch wheels" is ridiculous, yet we have come to accept it for what it is and with that, poor quality with lots of "issues" that we have to sort out ourselves. Some of us happily shell out 2K for this "experience". We (the early adopters of early batch wheels) are the true fools who willingly accept inferior quality. This just goes to prove how niche this market is. There is a reason why no "western culture" manufacturers have jumped on this ba

  16. My go-to for off leash animals (and their owners) is a whistle. it's part of my EDC Specifically the fox 40 whistle (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000071K5K) it's loud and discordant like you wouldn't believe... loud enough to get the attention of of a Roller Derby gal starting to throw hands. it is loud enough to get the dog to think you are bigger than they can handle, and loud enough to completely derail the most deranged karen.

  17. Another datapoint: I have a two local experienced trail riders who cannot ride their desired terrain using C30 without board overtemp and also frequent overlean. Both are 200lb+ with AT tires and big power pads. Below is a notional diagram of the differences; note that the 'normal operation' region is possible with both designs.

  19. Day 2: I've been riding for over an hour on asphalt today (I got the MSP cover from roll.nz on the wheel, it doesn't fit perfectly but it sorta works). Yesterday I didn't feel I had much steering control, just following wherever the wheel decided to go. Today I managed to ride around in large circles, then large figure 8s. I was able to speed up and slow down, more or less at will. I've only had 2-3 hours total time on the wheel, so predictably I'm still not very confident and my steering isn't very precise. I'm a bit wobbly at times and I flail my arms around a lot. BUT: I'm not fin

In short, some early conclusions. I was able to replicate the 5s gap on the V10F The alarm behavior, when tested in specific conditions is flawed, unpredictable and erratic Tilt-back behavior is inconsistent with alarms Tilt-back happens too slowly and does not trigger at all is some conditions In the demo video, pedals tilt forward instead of back.

  21. As others have said, just stop. Dogs don't understand priority rights on footpaths. If you genuinely don't like dogs then just avoid riding in places where people walk them off lead. You do seem to have an unnecessarily violent approach to fairly small issues.

  23. Chinese Solowheel patent may spell trouble for Veteran Competition heats up in China as electric unicycle (EUC) companies duel for a piece of the pie. In an aggressive move, Begode (Gotway) bought inventor Shane Chen's Chinese Solowheel patent earlier this year in April. Chen could not disclose how much Gotway paid for the patent, but said Gotway was the one that approached him. Chen is also the founder of Inventist Inc. based in Camas, Washington. He still holds the U.S. Solowheel patent, which he licenses to EUC resellers like eWheels. Gotway would not comment on its pla

  24. Quirky [new] idea? Hardly. If you go back to the early Solowheel days earlier this decade, or even as late as the MSV3 circa 2017(?), you would know true Soft mode is not new; it's been there since the inception AFAIK. The minority of old mainstays like myself prefer soft mode on All speeds, All everything, if you learn to leverage your body angles, not staying only flat-footed on the pedals, ie. one heel up at a time, contrary to the newer rider prevailing opinions that dip is a defect, which it most certainly is not. Yup. I actually mind the wheels that have no pedal

  25. Ah the horror of learning to ride on a brand new expensive wheel. You either need to tell yourself that you WILL learn this, or just quit. NONE of the euc's are going to be simple to learn. They are ALL foreign to you. Maybe the heavier and suspended wheels are tougher, but with absolutely no point of reference, this detail means not a damn thing to you. You need to suck it up and keep trying with confidence you will learn it. You knock the new off it and realize its now something to use, not sell or idolize. Realize that its not as easy as everyone pretend it to be, but keep trying as you won

  27. We should be able to know, this ridiculous stinginess about firmware needs to stop. Veteran trying to hide firmware numbers is like China digging down their crashed high speed train so it can’t be investigated. The most childish and unproductive approach to a problem. Veteran: rather than copying the worse sides of Gotway, get on with the times and make a proper OTA updatable firmware like everyone else 😓 Makes me straight up angry.

Wheel is going back to Jason at eWheels, and another is on the way to me! This is why I buy all my wheels from Jason and his team. I did put about 55 miles on the RS-T, enough to feel comfortable but not enough to for it become a body part. The wheel is wide and stable. When it was working as it should it's a very smooth wheel. The lower pedals will scrape on tight U-turns, and the dihedral is fairly lax which I prefer. With the stoc

  33. I feel like an iPhone is a bad example for many reasons. This would be more similar to buying a low end 200 USD smart phone and then complaining that you had to open it up to replace a bad battery with a new one they sent. You could buy an EUC for the price of an iPhone (and last time I checked an iPhone cant carry a person at 30mph), an iPhone is a premium product in its market with a price much higher then it's lower budget options. The iPhone of the EUC world doesn't exist because of the small market and if it did it would cost 6000 USD or more. People are used to paying an exorbitant amoun

  34. @sbouju @mrelwood is correct about the very distinct possibility that your suspension is badly stuck! It is a very well documented problem, unfortunately, but there is indeed now several "S18 suspension overhaul" threads that may give you greater insight in to what is needed to rectify your issues! I personally created one myself after stripping mine down "straight out of the box" as I knew that I could and did re-build it far better than the poor standard offered by King Song's production line staff! I have linked the post here, but please be warned that it is a very LONG read! I

  36. This is an interesting thread...! I have 2 dogs and as much as I like to think it may be possible to outrun one on an EUC it simply is not, they will get you in the acceleration/sprint every time. Both my dogs go from zero to full speed in about 4-5 strides and they can keep pace with a terrified and stampeding heard of deer (ya, perhaps don't ask me how I know this). When training them we needed to desensitize them to everything imaginable. Wheelchairs, crutches, little kids, little kids on bikes etc. etc. After spending hundreds of hours with each of them doing this they now see almost

  38. Thank you very much for the advise. I actually did something similar on my check attempt, just for a different reason. I really hated the cable management around the board and tried to fix it (a bit). It just insulted my sense of order, LOL. Had an opportunity to ride today and the sound is gone indeed, so it could have been that cable after all. Fingers crossed!

  40. First off I'll just mention that I don't believe any wheel should ever exceed 45kg (100 lb). Should probably keep it below 40kg. Okay so I've heard a lot of people saying how heavy wheels aren't "true" EUCs. Because a true EUC is meant to be very portable. Here's how I see it. A heavy wheel like the Sherman has far more range than lighter wheels meaning it does a much better job at replacing your car, the bus, train, tram ect. It can be your standalone vehicle. Another thing is that the extra weight in itself brings several significant advantages. 1. More theft proof. If yo

  44. I can certainly understand for some ppl, a high pedal height can be challenging esp for beginners. Once we develop a fear on that, it may be problematic to overcome. Instead of selling it on impulse & taking a hit on resale, perhaps an alternative maybe to purchase (new or used) a 2nd beginner friendly wheel to learn & get some confidence building riding time on. In IMO the V5/8 Inmotion's are arguably 2 of the most newb friendly wheels. Or if you're adventurous, the GW Mten3. Besides weighing next to nothing, it has the lowest pedal (&hence mounting/dismounting) height.

  45. The firefighter’s report came out, and it says it was likely a short circuit from the wiring, no mention of the EUCs. I went to take some pictures and found both chargers in another room so they were definitely not forgotten overcharging (don’t know if it would even happen). Anyways the EUC fire theory is now gone out the window, technically I’m owed a lot of money for damages but he doesn’t have insurance and is already in debt 😭 I found a new house and now I’m looking into buying a new EUC, thanks for the advice!

Veteran know they have a second rate system of updating via a chip.The only reason people ask for the update is the early Shermans have horrendous pedal dip that makes them just about unrideable in soft and medium mode. If they were bluetooth updateable we wouldnt have this conversation.Hiding the firmware to solve a known problem is so stupid.They should be sending an update chip to every owner without having to be asked!
