  1. Speedy has had it on their site for at least a couple of weeks. 2 grand though...oooff! I am not convinced the 'UK' model is any different whatsoever, other than the CE certification which I presume all zeds would be built to now as I cant see Ninebot building different spec wheels for different countries. In relation to the chinese sellers splashing '2019' all over their ads, I think it is just to show that the wheels will come with the later headlight and presumably the later power board although I think most wheels from late 2018 would have the newer board anyway.
  2. The only time I could possibly think of needing to receive a call whilst riding the euc would be if Mrs P went into labour. Given I've had the snip I dont think (hope) that will be anytime soon
  3. On the one hand I would say don't sweat it. In the real world, the chance of you getting your ECU seized is so low as to be inconsequential. On the other, the law is the law and that means there will always be a risk, however small. Granted, I do think about often as I could well do without getting 2 wheels seized with a loss of £1700 but that's the chance we take. I avoid police at all costs and don't ride like a dick. TBH I am disappointed at the speeds I see UK riders pass pedestrians whilst watching YouTube vids. I will pass at barely faster than they are walking as people are unpredictable, as are animals. However, the primary reason is because I don't want people to get the hump/scared/shocked by a faster moving vehicle suddenly passing them. A few complaints into the local rag or councillor will initiate widespread scorn and no doubt enforcement on these crazy one-wheeled machines. At the very least all it will do is aggravate people which is the last thing I would want to do whilst cavorting around on an illegal vehicle. Good question re the law on a pedal unicycle - believe it or not I have a feeling that they would be illegal as the wording states 'bicycle'. Unless there is a clause elsewhere. The Road Traffic Act 1988 (Sec 192) defines a cycle as a "bicycle, tricycle, or cycle having four or more wheels, not being in any case mechanically propelled".
  4. $1475. At least 2 months delivery though... https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32896047345.html?spm=2114.search0604.3.17.718d29465pT989&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0%2Csearchweb201602_2_10065_10130_10068_10547_319_317_10548_10696_10192_10190_453_10084_454_10083_10618_10307_10820_10301_10821_10303_537_536_10059_10884_10887_321_322_10103%2Csearchweb201603_52%2CppcSwitch_0&algo_expid=19b71092-7749-4d6a-85b8-674fc3ee2fe8-2&algo_pvid=19b71092-7749-4d6a-85b8-674fc3ee2fe8
  5. You cant really do much until you have the Pebble as that where most of the work is done. The only thing you can do is download the APK to your phone which is a few pages back, posted by Stephen. You will also find a link I posted which takes you to a post further back in this thread where full instructions were shown
  6. Oh right, I had another look earlier and the original listing still seemed to be up. Maybe its all been pulled down now as you say. Good work.
  7. So contrary to your initial statement, it does work, just not for you with all the other crap you have going through everything...
  8. It does Remember you need to connect bluetooth audio separately to bluetooth data (Wheelog for example). The only slight snag is that the bell loudness is not adjustable relative to any bluetooth audio you may be playing, and I find the bell is much quieter than the music volume. I dont really use either though so its not a problem for me.
  9. What did you find out about them Alex? At least with Amazon you are covered if you had of ordered I guess.
  10. No change re current law. EUC's are still illegal. We can only hope that if scooters are made legal, they lump in all forms of PEV. I won't hold my breath though - scooters could be seen as inherently safer than EUC's (2 wheels and proper brakes for starters) so if, and it's a big if, they allow scooters then I would not be surprised if the policy is so strict that it effectively eliminates anything other than a scooter. A bit like e-bike rules. One thing I am almost positive of is that there will be a speed limit and maximum motor wattage. It's the wattage that will kill it for EUC's - I imagine it would be no more than 250w, the same as an e-bike.
  11. Awesome meep. Very envious of the river path - I do love a good river path - so serene and you usually get some nice wildlife around as a bonus.
  12. A bit harsh I feel. Firstly, it is indeed a bargain (if a V5F) as you cant even get one direct from China for that price. Secondly, as regards to it being an inferior wheel, yes it does have its limitations but if you understand and work within them its an excellent wheel imo. Both my daughter and I learnt to ride on one and she still uses it regularly. When I was using it, I throughly enjoyed every mile I got out of it and not once has it let us down. If you are happy with 15mph max and around 12 miles (adult) or 15 miles (youth) its a fantastic wheel. Not everyone has £700 like you to spend on their first wheel.
  13. An amazing find if it is indeed a V5F. Might be worth confirming its not a V5 though, as the listing states motor wattage at 450 (V5F is 550).
  14. Really?! I have always used the stock wrench with no problem. You are doing this with the footplates closed yes?
  15. Thanks for that Hsiang. Great high res pic but unfortunately still not good enough to see the markings on the usual suspect components (U1 and U2). I think it would need a macro pic of them to make them out properly. Cheers anyway
