  1. I like the speakers in my 16x. My wife asks me to play music every time we ride together
  2. I had one kid turn to another and say "You're looking at the future right there!"
  3. Electrical engineer and Airborne Mine Countermeasures Tactician
  4. Anyone ever think of wearing these when riding at night. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074N5HGHT/ref=twister_B074N87MD8?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 I got tired of near misses by cars. There aren't many bike paths around where I live so I'm forced to ride on the road with traffic. I also wear this due to near misses. https://www.amazon.com/chaleco-seguridad-reflectante-visibilidad-cremallera/dp/B07DC1F7J4/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=Reflective+vest&qid=1599175784&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExVjM1SFBCODFLMk9HJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNjYzMjQxMkpFVkJGOTBPVlYzVSZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNTQxMTgyT1JFRVJOQTkyOVFUJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
  5. I have a Galaxy S9+ and an Active Watch 2 draining my battery after a ride unless I force stop the app on my phone and cycle power on my watch. It may be a Samsung issue?
  6. Do ride on the road as much as possible. But due to twisting, hilly, narrow roads without a bike lane you can't. Around here close to Washington DC, if you are on the road, you will be run over. I wear a bright yellow safety vest and flashing LED sneakers and they still almost hit me. I'd rather be on the road because it's a much smother ride but it's too dangerous sometimes.
  7. I am a moron who plays music! When no one is around I have it blasting. If I ride into a neighborhood or see people ahead I either turn it way down so i can barely hear it, or shut it off. I've found it useful for getting people's attention when they are walking with ear buds and can't hear me saying I'm about to pass them. Just yesterday I tried to go around one of these idiots taking up the whole sidewalk, blissfully unaware that a biker, jogger, etc might come up behind him. I tried going in the grass off to the side and my wheel instantly sunk in the mud while my body followed Newton's law. I found myself sprawled out in the mud and he never looked back or heard my crash. So I turned my music way up and rode up right behind him until he realized he is not alone in this world.
  8. This saddens me as well. As I love my 16X, I was looking at the 18S as my next wheel. No more though. Company support is paramount. Without it, we are buying $2,000+ paper weights. Thank goodness my fist purchase and all future purchases will be through Ewheels.com where I know everyone who has purchased from @Jason is more than satisfied.
  9. Vee you're crazy brave. I hit 25 and my heart is racing! Keep up the great work with the videos. I hope to ride , much slower, with you one day.
  10. I started with a mini Segway. Pretty cool for a little while but it only had a range of 15 miles and a max speed of 10.4 mph. It just started feeling too slow. Then I found out about EUCs! Forgetaboutit. That's all I needed to jump all in.
  11. The pain will diminish the more you ride. Try adjusting your stance and foot position throughout your ride.
  12. So I just crashed today going 24 Mph but I was wearing almost enough safety gear. I was 17.5 miles into my ride and maybe 5 minutes from home when it happened. The wind speed had increased significantly but coming straight at me. I was in tbe middle of al 10ft wide paved path when all of a sudden the wind direction changed to a cross wind at 270 degrees. It pushed me toward the right edge of the path where a large ditch was filled with water for the resent storms. I attempted to correct by steering left, and leaning more to the left, and breaking, but I encountered speed wobbles as I was slowing down still headed for the ditch. I made the decision I was going to either dump my wheel or go into the ditch. At the last minute I almost made it to the other side of the trail toward a soft, muddy patch of grass. I landed half on, half off the trail. Then I saw the wheel come flying at my head. It hit me full force. If I wasn't wearing any gear, I would have been still lying on the trail or in the back of an ambulance. I will be changing my elbow pads to something more like my Tripple 8 knee pads and wrist guards. I may also add some kind of protection for my hips. Im left with a pretty good road rash on my right hip. Be careful riding before a storm or in changing winds. I this case, the wind shifted as I crossed from a sheltered section of the trail to a wide open field next to the path slowing the wind to change direction.
