    Melbourne - Australia

    Anyone else around these parts? I haven't seen anyone... I'm just north of the CBD.
  2. This is like my driving technique for getting people to let me merge. Works especially well if they have a nice car.

    Teaching EUC, how to ?

    I suspect it will depend a lot on the student. I watched a crapton of tutorial videos and spent about a week indoors practicing mounting/dismounting and going short distances across rooms and down hallways. (Not to mention some practice trying to ride the acoustic unicycle before that.) Then I went outside and could basically ride right away (but only going straight). Because I kept the EUC practice at home for a while I could do 3-4 short sessions per day, which I feel let me integrate the new experience/data relatively quickly and with no real mishaps. If I had to go outside each time it would have taken me weeks to get the same number of sessions.

    Looking for 16S in Australia

    Just to wrap things up, I'm happy to say that my wheel arrived a couple weeks ago and I'm very pleased so far!

    Riding mode

    I'm a new rider, so perhaps this makes less sense to me than to more experienced folks, but would someone please help me understand the "riding mode" parameter on the King Song (in my case, 16s)? My guess is that this refers to the onset time of braking and acceleration relative to balance changes. Naively I'm having a hard time understanding why the "learner mode" would be good for anything since it seems to imply an excessive delay between when one changes position and the wheel's response. But maybe it's a personal thing? After about a week riding I just remembered that this parameter existed and have changed it from "learner" to "riding" but haven't given it a spin on that setting yet.

    Ordered from SkaterHQ. Thanks for the pointer Gaz Bon! (Alpha Beta looked like they only sold the smaller battery.)

    Thanks everybody, I really appreciate it! I've also written to King Song directly but no response yet.

    Looking for 16S in Australia

    Hello all! I'm living in Melbourne, Australia and looking for a reputable place from which to buy a 16S. The recommendations I've found so far seem to be outdated, and I'm wondering if anyone here can point me in the right direction.
