  1. The wheel currently has 792 km (492 miles) on the odometer. I originally purchased the Monster from eWheels. It has a factory QC date of 12 May 2017. Here's an image of the interior:
  2. While recently riding at the Marty Backe's LA EUC Tours many miles deep into an off-road trail away from civilization, the thought came to me about what to do in the event of a flat tire (which luckily, didn't happen)... Walking with the wheel would be a no-go while ~15 miles deep into a mountainous off-road trail (such as Cogswell Dam), especially on a hot weather day. Abandoning the wheel is also not much of an option due to the many miles of walking in rocky terrain, witch little to no water. So... The only option is: to ride the wheel on the rim! And trash the EUC later or replace the motor. That is what I would have done. I would have ridden on the rim and then trashed the EUC. But I am curious... What would you do in this aforementioned situation? Have any of you ever ridden on the rim?
  3. UPDATE: The wheel has been sold. Greetings I am selling the pictured 84-volt GotWay Monster 22" for only $1,000. It has the big 2400 watt hour battery! It is good condition and the tire is already slimed. I also have the seat. Reason for sale: I am too lightweight for the wheel, and have stopped riding it as I now ride a smaller wheel. I sell only locally (in the vicinity of Santa Cruz - San Jose - San Francisco), not shipping anywhere.
  4. It was a great, fun event! Not only competing, but watching everyone else as well. @Rama Douglas will photos from the event be uploaded to the LAEUCgames website? Really looking forward to them.
  5. I am a former “Glydiator”. So, technically... ?
  6. Russian women do seem to have an affinity towards dances such as ballet and ballroom. No surprise to see it on EUC... 🇷🇺 :ru: 🇷🇺
  7. Indeed! EUC is the only PEV that realistically allows for Dual Wielding using two weapons, one in each hand, while still maintaining full control of all aspects of your ride (such as speed changes and directional changes) for the entire duration of your ride. Would make for a great action movie scene! Agent 007 would be thrilled I'm sure.
  8. I stay with riding EUC because: - It’s the most maneuverable PEV. Agile. - It’s the most portable PEV. Small. - Very high distance range. - Fast enough for road with cars, yet can also slow down enough to ride on sidewalk at walking speed. - Can ride on any terrain type, on or off-road. - It is very fun! The thrill sensation is great. Perhaps because it’s the most complex to learn PEV. Or perhaps because it’s great agility. Sorta like a super agile motorcycle but with a skying downhill sensation.
  9. So, the only competition where you have to use the wheel that registered with is the race, correct? For others, such as Sumo for example, you can used a different wheel? Or do you have to use the wheel you registered for the entire event? For example: race with Nikola and sumo with mten3...
  10. Get the Nikola. While both have a comparable top speed in flat terrain, not so much in hilly terrain. The Nikola can go faster uphill than any other wheel, as of the day/time of this post. I don't know the terrain in your region, but here in California is just hills everywhere.
  11. I have, but very late at night. I was the only one on the trail. Some sections are pitch black. Make sure your lights work! Also, from what I experienced, people in Sacramento go to bed early. Very easy to ride high speed in the middle of the road around the capitol and the zoo and wherever.
  12. Humans and other mammals (omnivores and carnivores) are thrill seekers by nature. The adrenaline of the thrill (also known as fun) is pleasant. So euc riders are no different than motorcycle riders, and white water rafters, and snowboarders, and whatever, you name it. A dog catching a frisbee!
