    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    I don't think we are less social - group rides in US are as popular as everywhere it's a matter of several factors: there are lots of EUC riders in Moscow, there are enthusiasts willing to put their time and energy into organizing the event, there is a company ( @EcoDrift ) willing to become a sponsor. BTW, as far as I know, people from other cities also took part in this event, specifically from St.-Petersburg (400 miles away). Maybe @Jason McNeil have to think about it

    Oh, yeah, age definitely doesn't help... learning takes a lot more time and injuries heal a lot slower I actually decided to skip jumping tricks for now - too much risk for old bones, and there are still plenty of other tricks to learn and to perfect

    Anything around for $500

    @Jeremy Valentin for a small kid - consider Luffy, which is still looking for a good home

    @Rehab1 - almost all summer was devoted to windsurfing, I rode some trails in Washington - but they are too extreme for Olga, although we had a few nice rides with friends There is also some teaser for @Hunka Hunka Burning Love (not sure what city he is in) - he missed Olga in Montreal

    EUC for Kids- Recommendations?

    In my view, the risk in this case is rather exaggeration (if we are talking about the kids weighing less than 100lb). Adults can ride Luffy, even though they have to maintain non-aggressive riding style - but for the kid, the power is more than sufficient. The same is true for V5F - but it is bigger and heavier compared to Luffy. PS. I learned on 170Wh Airwheel, then it was a learning/first wheel for 3 more people, including 200lb adult - and nobody ever had any issues with it. Limited speed is quite a good safety factor. With more powerful wheel you inevitably will get higher speed limit - and kids are too eager to try it

    EUC for Kids- Recommendations?

    from my limited experience - Luffy is quite a good choice for smaller kids (5 - 12), the main advantage: it is very light and they are able to handle it easily, and even carry it when necessary, it is also not too fast

    Marty and Duf LIVESTREAM! Sunday October 28th!

    Hey @Marty Backe. My "trya" nick was born many years ago on some audio-book or programmers' forum, I think, quite sporadically, but I have a few "meanings" for it, my favorite one is that it references my tendency to try some new things, like "try a new XYZ", although I don't believe that I really meant this when used it first My full first name is Mikhail (like Gorbachev's, hehe) , which usually transforms to "Michael/Mike" in US. However, the first small company I started working for in US had already 2 other Michaels on the team, so I became "Mik" (pronounced like in "kick"), and it stuck. You also may have seen me under my real name on Facebook, I think, - I liked quite a few of your posts in EUC groups. Good seeing you live, @Marty Backe and @Duf!
  14. oh, well, here goes "if I had only one wheel for trails and hills" ACM2 selection Would you correct it to MCM5 now, Marty? Just kidding... I know you wouldn't change your favorites that easily
