  1. So strange seeing somebody on an EUC riding through Didsbury village! I haven't braved it in that direction yet. It's only about a 10 minute ride from mine.
  2. @Creative Nomad Really cool, fun video Is that what you do for a living? Something movie/editing related?
  3. @Antec I'm getting old! I'm watching your video thinking "I wish I lived in these quieter U.K places"....then I think, hang on that looks like it's near John Lewis about 20 minutes away).....yeah...definitely seems to be.....oh balls, it's the same guy I have been talking to in PM
  4. There is something quite sadly amusing about a company from a country responsible for more counterfeit products than any other, losing its s**t over where people buy its products from.
  5. It's weird.....I have checked everything and can't find anything loose. I'm wondering if that rocking back and forward (I am trying to learn riding backwards) combined with my weight just gets that noise going (like I say, much much quieter hearing it in person. The phone camera really does seem to amplify it) I went for a couple of miles ride yesterday just up and down my road, starting, stopping, turning.....and it feels absolutely rock solid. Balances perfectly, no vibrations, no grinding noises...nothing. I'm gonna refrain from trying to go forwards then into reverse and just learn back
  6. Yeah I'll try....trouble is there isn't that much to see with the panels off. It's still under warranty and I've emailed them about it. But would have been nice if it was "normal" or something I could have fixed myself :/
  7. My Z10 is making a knocking noise when transitioning from forward to backward motion and vice versa. It has always done this to some degree from day one and as it is my first wheel I always assumed it was normal. There is some slack/deadzone between forwards and backwards and I just thought it was as the motor engaged for each direction. But the last couple of days it seems to be doing it while riding over even the smallest bumps. I will add a video here, and note that the mic on my phone makes it sound MUCH louder than it actually is by ear. I am just worried something serious is g
  8. Official dealers can still close down. Surely the warranty is ultimately with the manufacturer and NOT the seller?
  9. I'm gobsmacked reading this thread. Kingsong need to wake up and realise we live in an internet world. People buy items from all over the world these days, and a lot of the best companies offer international warranties regardless of where it was purchased. I was undecided between a V11 and the S18, and despite the fact I would have been buying from a U.K dealer, I don't think Kingsong deserve my cash.
  10. I've just bought a POC and I believe that basically each of the different washers grips inside the mechanism to varying degrees based on which one it is. And that on impact the washer (with it's little teeth) loses grip and it folds up or down? rather than put strain on the helmet? Or you can use the thickest one which says it doesn't break away at all. I could be wrong, but that is how I am assuming it works I've also been looking at getting a new full face helmet. I'd love something like the Fox Proframe, but I want an internal drop down visor. I can't stand wearing goggles, I feel tr
  11. I was looking on YouTube at folding electric bikes. I can't walk very well/far so wanted something to give me some independence that was also a little out of the ordinary. I believe the first channel I saw as a recommendation that featured EUC's was TheTopher. I think he was riding his wheel around a multi-storey carpark and stopped to explain to a couple what he was riding. From there I found Chooch, Kuji etc etc and was hooked. This was just over a year ago, and I saw recommendations for speedyfeet here in the U.K. The Z10 was due to arrive (the euro build one) and I decided after seein
  12. I'm not gonna lie...that took me way too long to get
  13. I genuinely thought those valve covers screwed onto the body rather than the valve itself.
  14. I have very limited range in my ankles because of a motorcycle accident, and that tilt back would have thrown me off the back for sure.
  15. Is it necessarily a good thing that a lot of young idiots might think "oh yes, I can go 50mph on one of these things" (with Kuji's video going viral)...I am fairly sure that here in the U.K at least, it would be pretty bad!
  16. So where people have found the casing to be cracked where the screws go, is there enough space to build up around the mounting point with something like araldite or even just hot glue, just to make it sturdier out of the box?
  17. Looking at that teardown video, if the assembly line workers are using those screwdrivers with the torque a bit too high its no wonder screws into plastic are stripped
  18. Hi there. Sorry, not interested in the wheel I'm afraid! I just can't believe I have seen evidence of a fellow EUC rider in Manchester!!! I've been out and about on my wheel (a Z10) a fair few times and never seen anyone on one. I'm in South Manchester (I'm aware it's a big place )
  19. If you pause the video at the right spots, battery seems to be 50 % ish. and there is a number below the speed readout that shows 120, but no idea what that relates to.
  20. To be honest, although the S18 looks mighty sexy, the more I see of the V11, the more it looks like the "complete" package....apart from speed of course By the way, I did PM you last week I think it was, but it says something about you not being in the conversation anymore? Just in case you thought I was completely ignoring you Start watching that S18 video from about 4:40 , that's where he talks about the gold colour and shock.
  21. So I've just watched an unboxing by EUCO (Electric Unicycle Collective) and they mention that on the production model, the shock will only have one filling valve (???) so how would that work then? Surely it would take away a whole lot of custom tuning....or am I just not understanding how it will work? They have already unboxed a V11 and seem to know their stuff, so I'm guessing they know for sure about the shock? They also said that the customer models will ship with gold suspension mounts as seen in some promo videos.
  22. In the new version of the app there is an "unbind" option, which I am guessing will do what you want?
  23. It's so strange how you learn and adapt and a lot of times don't notice the changes. I was thinking the other day, how the camber on the roads here scared me at first, as it wanted to make my wheel turn all the time. So I was always having to compensate and it felt scary/dangerous with traffic around. Then it occurred to me the other day, that I don't even realise there is a camber anymore. It's a total non-issue, as my body now just understands what subtle pressure to put on each pedal to compensate for it wanting to turn. It's a great feeling
  24. There are some crazy pink ones on Amazon that have ears on them! In fact there are loads of strange looking helmets on there.
