  1. I cruise at around 30km/h, with longer straighter stretches at ~40km/h. I'll do short bursts at around 50-55km, but I back off the moment I hear the beep. It all depends on the terrain. The longer, straighter, smoother, more easily visible, the faster I can safely go. Also I tend to take the same routes, so I know where most of the bumps and things are.
  2. Can you add me to the FB group? https://www.facebook.com/justin.boivin.5
  3. Agh, that's unfortunate. The laws are probably very close to being changed...I know they were putting something through the legislature, where Victoria was going to be one of a few test cities to carve out regulations. Haven't heard anything recently though.
  4. I know its a long shot, but you never know if you don't ask. I wanted to buy EUC guy's led controller, but he doesn't seem to be in stock, and by the sounds of his website, it might be a while until more are made. Are there used ones out there?
  5. There is a bit of a story to tell, but. Yeah I'd be down. I work Saturdays but am free on Sundays.
  6. Okay! So I finally was able to save up *again* for an MSX 84v. Picking it up in Van tomorrow, stoked to be riding again!
  7. Still nothing :( I'm thinking its as good as gone now, so I'm starting to save for a replacement.
  8. There are like 5 people in this city who ride EUCs, so I doubt it was anyone who'd work on it, know how to make it look new. Probably someone figured it was worth something and looking to sell it quick.
  9. Yeah, I came out of Indigo, saw an empty space where the EUC should be and my heart sank. If I get it back I'll take it inside everywhere. I had to work extra days and save up for three months to afford that. The next step is to call pawn shops, check craigslist etc. I covered the bottom of the pedals with black tape and sealed the seams of the shell with silicone, so it's got some identifiers.
  10. A word of warning don't lock your EUC up on bike racks on this city. Mine just got stolen from the mayfair mall. Luckily they've got footage and its a known suspect, so there's a chance I will get it back. Also please keep an eye if you see an MSX for sale at a mysteriously cheap price; its likely mine.
  11. I would not suggest riding an EUC with said limitations, especially if you don't want to run the risk of ever falling. Minor tumbles are expected when you're learning, but the ability to recover from a tumble and have it not turn into a 'fall' depends greatly on your mobility and ability to react. Riding an EUC isn't all that strenuous, but feet/legs/knees/ hips are all necessary for balance, shock absorption, and control.
  12. I use a chest light ( https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01LXZDIYJ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ) in addition to my wheel's light( higher up for cars to see), and use the lower of 2 brightness settings. Nobody's complained. I'm pretty sure most of the bike lights are brighter than EUC lights anyways.
  13. Only got a quick view, colourful hippie ish person. |Black EUC looked a KingSong 18XL maybe? Was stoked to see someone else riding though!
  14. Saw another EUC rider on the Lochside trail today. Was it anyone here?
