  1. Good luck. Be sure to keep realistic expectations...
  2. I too am waiting to hear back about the nylanove pedals. Of course, NOW I'm waiting to hear back from you too!
  3. Stock up on marshmallow and beer.... you got it made in the shade with chances for HI-heat to temper your fade
  4. Definitely need comfy shoes! I feel all sorts of odd when my shoes are even tied a bit too loosely. Being comfy enough to move around on the pedals is a great habit to help with fatigue. I would suspect that whether or not you move within wide shoes or the shoe itself, the theory remains. Towards the end of last riding season, I noticed that conditioning kpet my feet from being sore, altho 'pins and needles' still showed itself at times. Similar to how the hands feel after a long tour on a motorcycle.
  5. Im curious if any of you taller guys are riding with the balls of the feet PAST the front edges of the pedals? I tend to ride at the edge (front) with balls of the feet just barely on. Any further forward and It REALLY sketchy. Perhaps theres a few here with a style that rides even more forward?
  6. This is good info for sure! Im not a great rider at all and am always ready to learn something new. You make me wonder if grabbing with my ankles at times, to keep me from bouncing off the pedals, is an acceptable and understandable practice? I also notice a tendancy to grab with my legs to help assist in maintaing higher speeds: is this also a bad idea? I don't ride with a tight grip on my wheels for most occassions, and wobbles are definitely made worse FAST, if I did. Im just wondering if maybe theres a balance in there somewhere? Perhaps at times, a tight grab on the wheel is useful,
  7. YOu do know that a REAL euc enthusiast would cry over the euc burning and laugh at the house, right? Cmon man, I expected much better from you! Headphones due to covid... learn something new everyday. What you guys doing out there in the west? Nevermind, I dont need to know... Storing a wheel outside isnt a bad option, if you live in some wierd place that its always mild temps. RocyTop and I get to enjoy rain a measely 350 days a year. The other two weeks are simply snow...
  8. Must resist the urge....... oh screw it! You got images of battery being full and can you verify it is not a geolocked wheel? Where was it originally purchased? I am somewhat within driving range and have a few slips of green paper that could entice the sale. Damn fine wheel version for sure!
  9. Lucky dog. I use the same cams and editor, but im on a pc. Gopro exported wont turn mine into 4k, it simply takes 360 and punches it down to 2k right off the bat. Further cropping and you end up with the shit I keep posting. Careful with worrying too much about your appearance, or the ladies will start to get angry! More of the same old neighborhood, more of the same ugly ass rider. NOW I've added audio assault to the video as I just needed to play with some of the music gear.
  10. image stabilization is voodoo magic! I am also shocked at how all us euc riders seem to float without bumps in our vids. Grab you one goto selfie stick with tripod built in and call it a day. Spending more on unicycles than cameras just makes perfect sense. I do keep a cam mounted to the front of my cycle, but the static view gets boring fast. Pretty much just keep it there for when I get run over or in a badass crash. NOthin worse than road rash, hospital bills and no damn footage to enjoy during recovery! I always shoot as wide as possible. Always easier to crop later than to add what wasnt
  11. The topic is actualy what NON-suspension wheels feel like. Back to 'non-suspension' it is.....
  12. I am farily certain the overstated speeds and range are well outside the margin for error, IF a company were to conduct multiple tests under standardized conditions. Flat ground 100lb human, no wind, properly inflated tires and 70-90degree ambient temps, 60% humidity. Obviously we will see variations and margins of error. However, it is NOT a simple error, that EVERY speed and range spec is overtated. Its by design. I fail to see how referencing exact numbers as it relates to dollars, as improper. I used the analogy, as some people may find money more important than others. Thus, the over
  13. Basically, your wheel will be safe when California goes up in flames this year, as it does almost every year? Excellent! Maybe put a cooler full of beer next to it and a lawnchair.
