  1. It depends, In urban areas sidewalks are very wide for high traffic. The same goes for mixed use paths regardless of location. However when one reaches suburban or rural areas sidewalks they are supposed to be 5 feet wide, but this is not always the case.
  2. That's actually a really good idea. Seems like common sense to me. Edit: So does does the self balancing category exclude smaller E-Scooters too? That would be a shame if they were since E-Scooters are used on city sidewalks in USA all the time.
  3. Having EUCs in the same category with other non-powered micro-mobility (MM) options will confuse future legislation. IMO adopting a separate classification for electric micro-mobility (EMM) is a better idea in terms of legal vocabulary. Reclassifying ourselves may allow us to create space for reasonable future laws. PEV is often used, but my issue with that term is that it suggests electric vehicles in general. I can imagine right now some lawmaker say, "Oh I own a PEV, look here is a picture of my Tesla Model 3." I'm not going to assume lawmakers will immediately differentiate, which can mean a lot depending on how much time one is given to make a defense for EUCs. I predict there is going to be a future battle in terms of classification. Which will likely dictate use. Here is what I think will happen under current terms: Classified with bikes and skateboards and be absorbed with MM in general Solidifies legal access to trails but might create a culture of fear at a possible expense for pedestrian safety Classified with Mopeds as wheels can reach speeds 30+ mph (most states in the USA don't allow Mopeds to go faster than 30 mph) Allows higher speed, but likely will result in unreasonable restrictions Banned outright due to safety concerns Where I live I'm lucky that option (1.) happened in my area. We had a huge win earlier this year where electric powered MM can now legally ride on sidewalks, trails, and bike lanes. However, I can definitely see a future where other localities and communities won't be so lucky. During the process for our win there was a ton of lash back from the elderly community, scared that electric powered vehicles on trails pose a danger since they don't have as much freedom of movement. I also want to note that giving Mopeds an official classification is important too, if they aren't already in your area. Since we basically fit between non-powered MM and Mopeds in terms of law. I suggest that Mopeds and Motor Scooters (Not to be confused with E-Scooters) be classified as Light Motor Vehicles (LMVs). I attached an image of my idea of vehicle classification. Any opinions?
  4. If you find that you don't have space or can't afford a 3D printer, try researching if there is a Makerspace/Hackerspace in your area that has 3D printers. Also, offers an opportunity to encourage more people to ride.
  5. Yeah I can edit it anytime. When others edit it forces me to review them. The only reason some might be missing is either I was having trouble finding the actual release date or just didn't get around to it yet.
  6. Thanks! Funny enough I'm actually using that site as a source lmao! I'll make sure to add the other entries so that its easier to see on a timeline in one screen. ATM I'm focusing on Gotway, KingSong, INMOTION, and Ninebot.
  7. Working on a public timeline on Time Graphics. If anyone wants to help correct or add any information follow the link (I think it allows others to edit not sure tbh). EUC Release Date Timeline https://time.graphics/line/400129
  8. Is there a timeline spreadsheet or infograph to see when EUCs were released?
  9. Info about the W&OD reassuring, glad to hear its usable. Its to bad there isn't a central spot for a NoVA crew. Immediately what came to mind was "Caboose Brewing Company & Tavern" in Vienna. I'll check out Telegram, thanks for sharing that. Also never used that app before, is it "Telegram Messenger" in the app store? Edit: I found DCESK8SQUADBOT. Is this only a notification forum? Super confused how this app works lol.
  10. They probably complain because the music doesn't fit narrative. Of course you can't please everyone, but if one is playing a fast paced Hard Rock, Dubstep, DNB, or Rap track on a video when your just cruising then the sound obviously won't match the setting Hsiang and Kuji Rolls do a very good job at mixing music and narrative. Analyzing where they make music loud and soft, and the type of music they use, offer good examples to learn from. I can see why some people play music while watching other content but I don't think its smart to assume most people do. Personally I don't do this. I guess an individual can add background music on their own, but when we make videos it offers the opportunity for content creators during editing to beat match and adjust volume during riding and dialogue. I somewhat disagree with the last bullet, music creates an environment and personally with videos that did it right helped influence me to get into this community. However, it ultimately depends on the video one makes. If your making an educational video on EUC then yeah music is not a focus. If the video is just you cruising with or without your friends, or you need to transition, music may have a place. Amateur videos will be amateur videos, but since this is a sub forum on EUC video making its good to make light of it and offer solutions, which I attempted to do above.
  11. If I was making videos (which I might in the future IDK), I would look out for more artists like this. This is a Japanese Hip Hop Beatmaker named bugseed, a project made with ill.sug.
  12. Pretty Lights is awesome! I'd be surprised if you never came across them, but you might also like "Jazzinuf" too. I will say that Pretty Lights is a very popular group so be careful of copy right. They used to hold some of the biggest festivals in the past.
  13. Look do what you want, but here is what I notice with a lot of EUC YouTube videos. Video is of a person or group ride Shows the ride to be just casually going down the road INTENSE ELECTRONIC MUSIC PLAYING IN THE BACKGROUND If that's the type of music you want to use I suggest looking up music with a lower tempo to match the environment such as LoFi, Boom Bap, Chill Hip Hop, Cloud Rap. Or type in whatever genre of music you like with the word "chill" before it. I find searches with that word comes up with artists that have more downtempo versions of music I like. After, find similar genres or artists lower in popularity, or look for a distributor to pay for use in order to avoid copyright issues. Rant over. Safe Riding
