  1. I've owned my Onewheel XR for over 2 years and have over 3600 miles on it. As you've already heard, the fun level is off-the-charts, and nothing beats that carving, floaty feeling. Also purchased a Nikola+ 100V and put almost 1200 miles on it, so I have a good perspective for comparison. The Onewheel XR is like a Porsche 911 with a lawnmower engine. Fun as !@#$ in the corners and on short trips, but if you want to go 20+ miles, it will get on your nerves quickly. An EUC is like a Dodge Hellcat. Soft and comfy, excels in a straight line, and will happily loaf at speeds of 30mph+ for miles
  2. Sold. Moderator - please delete - I couldn't figure out how. Thanks!
  3. Greetings! For sale: used Gotway Nikola+ 100V 1845Wh. Runs extremely well, quiet, very smooth. A bit scratched up - it was my first EUC. Less than 800 miles. Includes extra tire, pads, original shipping box. Selling because I'm a bit afraid of it - 40 mph at my age is scary - I'm more comfortable at my Onewheel speeds. Located in Durham, NC. $1320
  4. I learned by diving into the deep end, so to speak. Highly recommend it. It took about 20 minutes. 15 minutes of shakily riding around the inside of a tennis court while holding the fence. Then I pushed away and aimed for the center, determined to stay on top while it crazily veered left and right. It worked! The first time, I stayed on for about 20 seconds. I was swerving so much, I thought both my pedals would scrape, but if you trust your body and the device and don’t overthink it, you will stay upright- even the first time. This was on a Nikola plus. I imagine a smaller wheel
  5. This! Yes! Please! Love my Onewheel. Have over 3000 miles on it. It’s fun to carve and addictive like a snowboard, but the 15mph top speed makes it tough on longer rides. My Nikola is really fast, a joy on long trips, but no fun in corners. You’d think GotWay could put Onewheel out of business in an afternoon, for they have the technology. The day someone invents a Onewheel that can cruise at 25mph, I’m selling everything.
  6. Right on! I have over 3000 miles on my Onewheel XR. Really enjoy it!
  7. Thanks for posting! Is having a remote an issue?
  8. @Patton250 I think this is the pad: https://www.amazon.com/REVSOSTAR-Motorcycle-Traction-sticker-2003-2006/dp/B07YKJZTHT
  9. Hey Nick - that’s right. You told me, but I forgot. Really enjoying my Nikola+! If you have any other models for sale, let me know. I’d be happy to buy from you again.
  10. I was going to slime my Nikola+ tire, but was concerned about oscillations and off - balance issues. Has anyone experienced adverse effects from sliming their tire? Thx!
  11. Great advice! Thanks. I've spent the morning reading about Marty Backe's and Rehab1's crashes, so instead of going riding this afternoon, I'm shopping for pads ;(
  12. Greetings! I'm a Onewheel veteran with over 3000 miles (and still completely love it) but wanted something a bit faster with more range. I purchased a Nikola+ 100v, because I was confident I could figure it out quickly, and didn't want to outgrow a starter model. The learning process: I wasted about 10 minutes riding on one leg, and using golf clubs as canes. The breakthrough was when I took it to a tennis court. I did a couple laps around it while touching the fence. Then, I rode to the center, and tried to ride back to the edge without putting my foot down. Miraculously, the wheel
  13. I would skip both of them all together, and get the one you really want - say a 16x, or Nikola+. Like you, I was agonizing over a “beginner“ model – (just search my posts). I decided to take the plunge, and buy a Nikola+ from a fellow member. (Thanks @Nick McCutcheon!) It took me about 15 minutes to figure out, and in two days I have put over 20 miles on it. I’m in love! Had I bought a beginner model, I’d be annoyed with its 12 mph or whatever top speed and stuck trying to sell it for a loss. I would also recommend buying a used one, because you will drop it :-)
  14. This is helpful for me to read! My Nikola + 100v is arriving today, and I know absolutely nothing about EUCs. Looking forward to staying upright! (Hopefully this week...)
