  1. your tire pressure is too high for your weight.... drop it 37psi.... How much do you weigh 160lbs? Yes have to bend knees on bumpy areas, but a chao yang tire can take a lot of that away... also the impact to your legs which will tire you out. On a V8 if you are not breaking, you shouldn't get wobbles. Sorry to me it is a strength issue... When i started to ride I used to get lots of wobbles.... I now rarely do.
  2. Time has passed, the space for large unicycles is saturated and there is little point in bringing out another big wheel. As pointed out earlier, they should play to their strengths, refine the GT 16, fix the issues maybe add 21700 batteries. If they are in no position to execute they should sell the brand and technology to someone else to carry forward. We want more GT16 wheels.
  3. you mean you feel the wheel pull when you go over pavement seams?
  4. Chaoyang are more bouncy, minimum PSI is 35 instead of 40 of the other manufacturers. they are likely to have more friction area compared to Kenda. personally with Chao Yang I would go thinner, I think I have a 16 x 1.95 on my GT16 and it very nice to ride, bouncy and comfy... The default V10F tire is square and very hard to lean and tough. I would go for minimum a CYT 16 x 2.15 or if you want to see it manouver like a V8 put a 1.95" tire.
  5. The penny dropped when Inmotion announced the 8VS..... duh! Lets up 21700's in a V5F and get it upto 740Whr.... The one thing is that the two frames that sandwich the batteries must be have holes 70mm instead of 65mm.... Has anyone got a way to scan or design this frame based and can share a file we can use to print. I can open a battery pack and take the frames out and trace and photograph for someone to make 3D printing files... On the V8 I am more inclined to use the Sanyo 20700B 4250mha with 20A discharge. V8 motor can draw way more than 10A cells give...
  6. Why would a regulator bother to do any work to introduce another vehicle that ads so little to the road or the transportation system. Unicycles that can do 40-50km are no different than a motor bike because lets be honest, it will weight a lot, it will lose all its advantages it has with such a weight, portability maneuverability. I think the sweet spot where they contribute to transportation is when they are put on pavements are to support public transportation or lack of transport systems or allow the reduction of road vehicles. The last thing a regulator wants is a slow device that cou
  7. Regulation is to deal with safety of the device... The safety profile of a bycicle which has two wheel and a handle bar, and a wheel base is very different from a unicycle. So they have nothing to do with one another.... I personally think they unicycles in terms of safety closest to skateboards
  8. I don't think they should ever be road legal. I don't see the point. They are safe on a pavement, but not on roads... If you want to discuss what will make them legal on pavements.... we should probably start a new thread. I've actually asked for a whole Forum to be dedicated to legalisation...
  9. Oh nice put down there about "attitude".... Accidents can happen, you may not be going fast but some kid pops out of nowhere, because he was hiding being a large flower pot. When that happens, the only thing that matters is how fast you pump Watts into that motor... whether it is fully charged or you are 50% down... I've yet never hit anyone, for one simple reason, because I use unicycles with high capacity discharge batteries. My MCM had 10A batteries before and it was a joke.... actually one guy I know really hurt himself on it, accelerated hard, broke hard, could not output enough, it
  10. Someone said the same to me until they tried my MCM5 67V, that until he decided to break and heard the wheel screech, and stopped abruptly/safely... So sorry I not only disagree, I keep avoiding hiting people thanks to having 64 x 20A batteries... I've yet to see try wheel on which I can break faster.... Also I have a V5F with VTC6 and one without, the difference on them is massive, anyone that tries them is loves the acceleration and breaking of the one with VTC6 cells.
  11. I think they should just provide a like a hole across the body, where you put your JBL Extreme or something across it and can plug it into a USB.
  12. yeah maybe in your mind, until someone riding behind you records how you ride and you see the trail of people that you have impacted you left behind.... The fact you are talking at such high speeds of 20km/hr you don't understand. You can't zig-zag at that speed, your should not be within 3 meters of a pedestrian if you are riding at the speed. If you want to zigzag, maybe top 7km/hr... I took a video the other night where I found myself between 100 joggers, and they were going at a good pace, the few at at the front were doing about 17km/hr but where the vast majority were doing about 1
  13. Don't have high expectations of the speaker/sound. The speaker is pretty mediocre, neitherhas fidelity nor base... It sounds encased... My little JBL Clip 3 provides much better quality. I don't understand given the size of the wheel why can't they get this right. A speaker doesn't have to draw much power and having nice sound chamber is easy to do in such a big wheel.
  14. I've pointed out that one model and many options it costly, complex and prone to errors.... They should bring out 3 configs of the same wheel.
  15. Are you sure the shell is attached the columns properly? Or is the body cracked? I've never had a wooble cornering....
