  1. Just a friendly reminder for the next eWheel Going Out Group Ride next Sun. July 12th (this is the one that was originally scheduled for Sun. Apr. 26th, but postponed due to the pandemic). Click link below. I look forward to seeing you there!
  2. Got it. Suggestions on penetrating oil? When I Google it, it comes up with WD40, which I'm currently using.
  3. @buell47, extremely helpful thread, thank you for sharing! I guess I need to have patience and keep at it: WD40, tapping away at the rod, and repeat. You mentioned using a "spray with a higher creeping effect and better corrosion solving properties" than WD40. Suggestions? If I am able to get the pedal off, I like your suggestion to use ceramic spray to coat it beforehand. Just curious which kind did you use? Also, I can't believe @Marty Backe used an angle grinder to grind off the pedal rod! But I guess if I have to do that, I will.
  4. Hi all, I need to change the tire on my wheel, and after researching YouTube videos (e.g. Electric Unicycles EU, Speedy Feet UK), I can't even get past removing the pedal (which would then allow me to remove the case, which would then permit me to get to the tire so that I can change it out). I'm able to remove the hex screw underneath the pedal just fine, but when I go to try to remove the bushing (or metal rod) for the pedal, it simply does not budge. I've hammered at it using a hammer and screwdriver for an hour straight to no avail, using WD40 a couple of times to try and loosen it up. See pic attached (note: this pic is taken after that hour). I've ridden my wheel every day in all kinds of weather for 5 years, so I suspect there's a bunch of dirt, grime, rust within it that's making it so difficult to remove. This is for a Ninebot One E+, but in looking at similar videos for other brands of wheels (e.g. Inmotion), it seems the procedure for removal of the pedal is the exact same (i.e. remove the bushing / metal rod). The videos online make it seem so easy, but they also look like new wheels that haven't been through the weather abuse I've given my wheel. I'm looking for suggestions, ideas, or anything else to help me get past this point. Anyone have any thoughts? Thanks in advance
  5. @AtlasP, much appreciated. For some weird reason, I get a timeout when I click on the link you added. I noticed "en-AU/" showing within the link, so maybe it has to do with that. It should just be https://www.meetup.com/ewheelgroup/ without the "en-AU/" piece. Possible to update? Thanks again and sorry for the trouble!
  6. @AtlasP, can you please add the eWheel Going Out Group for Washington DC? We're the first eWheel Meetup group created in the DC area (since 2016) and currently predominantly EUC riders. Meetup website here... I've also just announced our next ride here... Thank you in advance!
  7. I've announced our next ride for the eWheel Going Out Group for Sun. Apr. 26th. I hope you can join us! https://www.meetup.com/ewheelgroup/events/269144536/
  8. I'm planning our next ride and would like some feedback from the group. What date(s) work or don't work for you? Sun. Apr. 19th Sat. Apr. 25th Sun. Apr. 26th Thank you in advance!

  11. Just a friendly reminder for the next eWheel Going Out Group Ride next Sun. Oct. 6th. I look forward to seeing you there!
  12. Come join us for our next eWheel Going Out Group Ride Sunday October 6th @2pm!
  13. @LanghamP, can you help me understand what you mean by "twitchy" handling? Also, if you were me, would you change the tire in the picture I posted? Thank you for your help!
  14. @Rywokast, that was an extremely helpful response, thank you! I shall wait a little longer then. I do have a backup tire ready in the closet for when I do need to change out the tire. The original tire rides well on pavement. I have noticed that the few times I've gone on gravel-like surfaces, that the grip isn't quite what it used to be, but it's also not anything that bothers me too much. Also, that is an amazing collection of wheels you have!
  15. My Ninebot One E+ has 2010 miles (3235 km) on it with original tire and I'm wondering how much life I have left on it. Has anyone ever had their tire blow out? I'm curious what the tread looked like at the time. See attached for pic of what my tire currently looks like. Thoughts? Thank you in advance!
