  1. What I think I'd like to be able to do: Long press UP button on pebble to: a> Launch Wheellog on pebble (possible) b> Launch EUC app on Android c> EUC app powers on the wheel (default wheel if you have multiple wheels) Long Press DN button on pebble to: a> Power down the wheel b> Close the EUC app on the phone This way, I can keep my phone in the pocket and just use the pebble for getting started with or finishing a ride. I downloaded the Macrodroid pbw and loaded onto the Pebble watch from my Android phone. Macrodroid on the pebble does not want to launch. I installed Macrodroid on the phone and tried to install macrodroid on the pebble from the phone app. Install fails. Has anyone been able to get this working ? The Pebble watch is the original one. I just bought it from ebay. It's running firmware v3.12.3 Thanks,V
  2. Did you ever figure this out ? I installed the macrodroid for pebble on the pebble watch and it won't launch at all. I tried reinstalling macrodroid on pebble from within the Macrodroid app on my phone and that fails. My Pebble watch is running firmware v3.12.3
  3. The Pebble watch from ebay just arrived this evening. Took about 20 minutes to pair to the Pebble app on Android phone and get the Pebble wheellog app working. What I think I'd like to be able to do: Long press UP button on pebble to: a> Launch Wheellog on pebble (possible) b> Launch EUC app on Android c> EUC app powers on the wheel (default wheel if you have multiple wheels) Long Press DN button on pebble to: a> Power down the wheel b> Close the EUC app on the phone This way, I can keep my phone in the pocket and just use the pebble for getting started with or finishing a ride. Thoughts @Seba ? Is this within the realm of possible or does such capability already exist. Thanks,V
  4. The Shoei GT Air i use on the motorcycle weighs 1700 grams. The Bell Transfer 9 mountain bike helmet I ordered is 1200 grams (one of the heavier ones) but it was 70 bucks on sale. I don't want to carry 500 grams more on my neck when I don't need to. As you say, it's a personal comfort choice.
  5. OK. You changed my mind. I just ordered a mountainbike helmet with a chin guard as none of the 10 other helmets I have have a chin guard other than the motorcycle helmets which are too heavy for the EUC.
  6. I went from motorcycling to biking to euc. My first few years on a motorcycle I didn't wear a helmet (grew up in India). Bought my first helmet when a got a motorcycle in NYC when I was 28. I have never paddled whitewater without a helmet. I'll never ski or snowboard without a helmet. EUC just feels like I can take an acceptable risk. I am riding a 14D though which maxes out at 18.x mph and my commute with bad roads, traffic and people has me riding under 15mph. I do know that I'm taking a risk. The probability of risk not turning into issue is what I'm betting on. I may change my mind when I get a larger faster wheel and ride more.
  7. I bike ride in a group and commute as well. We tend to ride within 1-2 feet behind the wheel in front otherwise the draft is reduced. Tri -bikes are different. I would never ever draft a tri bike as when they're down on the aero bars they have zero maneuverability and control. Road bike groups don't crash as often unless you have novice riders. Then again, novices are not drafting over 25mph. But to your point, unicycles are safer than bicycles :-)
  8. while the comparison makes sense it's hard to follow motorcycle protection on other vehicles. on my roadbike i'm wearing lycra shorts and jersey and all i have for protection is a helmet - and often we hit 40-50mph on downhill sections. i can't possibly wear my motorcycle suit and helmet while riding the roadbike. to me the same applies to unicycles.
  9. Well, I would definitely be honest about it and mention that :-)
  10. I've observed this several times. It's understating by quite a bit. Or rather, some trips either don't register or on a part of it registers ... It's a bit sad that I don't know how many total miles I have on the wheel
  11. It's also perspective. I will always wear a helmet while snowboarding, skiing, and on my motorcycle and roadbikes or while whitewater kayaking. For some reason, my mind is resisting the helmet for the EUC at least for the last mile commute and short errands. I don't really care about what others think, it's just me.
  12. It's the 14D then with the 420Wh battery. Thank you for educating me.
  13. Hmmm. In the app I see Model: 14-SMD Name: 14-SMD-0109 Serial Number: KS14D******* It has BT. Is this the one with 2 batteries or 2 bigger batteries ?
  14. What's the difference between 14D and 14SMD ? Where can I look up specs for the 14SMD ?
