  1. .....Ewheels ships straight outta Compton (Eazy E).
  2. Got curious for the interviewer. Good one!!
  3. I also use "uni" when asked on the go. "Electric unicycle" in static conversation. "Yukes" don't sound right. 'not too sure but me thinks wiki made that up.
  4. Hey Yamchoo, carrying that bulky mten3 around should fix your upper body strength discrepancy. A blessing in disguise me thinks. Just sayin'.
  5. The foam bumpers & tape that came w/ my EUC wasn't sticky enough and would come off. I needed something reliable. For crash/scratch protection, I use this on all my mtnbikes and it worked well on the EUC edges - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009NP1N0Y/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 On the EUC areas that gets hit hardest: Pedal edges etc. I cut some surfboard traction pads that I have laying around. Like these - https://www.amazon.com/Surfboard-Surfboards-Skimboards-Shortboards-Longboards/dp/B08DRHRPPG/ref=pd_ybh_a_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=NSG8PD1679FVKMFSJ1EB So far, no issues.
  6. Late to this party but find a 10 lb. free weight plate (round cast iron , about 10" OD). Electrical tape on the plate edge and use a rubber mallet. I've done this on my fat bike rim.
  7. ^^^ Thank you. Thinking the same.
  8. I would try bumping up the tire pressure. Bumpy roads can "unseat" your tire "beads" from the rim.
  9. Thank you, Amelanso. Just gathering info, fiddle & learn more with the internals. Not looking for miracles, maybe even just a slight improvement. I understand this model is easily outgrown but I wanna keep it as a study unit for now. I already ordered an mten3 with expected delivery next month.
  10. Thank you, Litewave.
  11. Rookie rider. I got my Ninebot one C in May. Is there any DIY upgrades for this unit? TIA
  12. A little late on the party but on attaching "spd " clips on the pedals; I've been using them mountainbiking for 15 years or so. Helps control better and keeps me planted on the rocky, rooty technical northeast terrain.The multi release cleats (shimano SH-56) always unclips every time I crash . I've seen unicyclist use them . The SH-51 are single-release cleats and only unclips when you push your heels out sideways. The caveat is the cleats themselves. That solid piece of metal under your sole isn't great for walking and can be slippery.
