  1. I have an old 16-inch Firewheel that I haven't ridden in a while. It can go 16mph, the alarm starts beeping at 12mph though so you probably don't want to go much faster than that on a regular basis. It would work great for a 3-mile commute, I've ridden it 30 miles on a single charge in the past. I live in Silver Spring so I'm local. It has a charger and small wire stand. Send me a private message if you're interested, I'll let it go really cheap.
  2. Lots of options at AliExpress: https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?SearchText=bike+tail+light

    I cant ride my 1200$ Electric Unicycle.

    Keep trying. It may take some time. Practice by moving along as you are next to a fence or railing you can hold on to. At some point you will get it and forget it was so hard to learn.
  4. Don't tell my wife but I've been riding a bit already, almost 50 miles this month. The MCL is healed and the ACL ain't doing nothing since it's totally torn but can be fixed whenever. Some people don't even get it fixed but I think I will. The main problem remaining is the meniscus, they need to go in and trim it up to reduce the irritation. I'm starting a new job next month so I need to figure out how to do that and get surgery plus PT.

    400km and still waiting on first crash

    I had a little Ipsiann in me but by now it's bled out.

    400km and still waiting on first crash

    Most of us started like this, feeling like we want to go faster and faster--until we have a cutout, or don't pay enough attention and hit a bump. If you had an older slow wheel like a Ninebot One I would just say this is a lesson you need to learn the hard way, by crashing. Since your EUC can go at least 36kph and faster, you may end up in the hospital to learn this lesson which would be unfortunate.
  7. Usually I just yell, HELP JANE STOP THIS CRAZY THING and they dive out of the way.

    The future is not 30 mph EUCs

    Sidewalks may go unused in Florida but that is only because being a pedestrian in Florida is to be living in a killing field. Eight of the 10 most dangerous cities are in Florida. Having any sort of mixed traffic sharing a space with a big speed differential is dangerous. That is why they don't allow bicycles on interstate highways. If you allow EUCs on sidewalks and they can go ten times faster than the pedestrians sharing the space, there will be bad accidents.

    Split second Tesla cutout

    Ha, I just came back to mention this! It would have the same effect as a defective gyro but be really easy to fix.

    Split second Tesla cutout

    If there isn't a total cutout but the wheel tilts forward/backward for a second or so after some sort of bump, it's possible that the gyroscope module on the control board is defective. That could be super dangerous if it happened at high speed.

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    Just don't wear them in the house! I had a pair of shoes like that, they left little mud hexagons all over the place.

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    That's exactly how the Firewheel solved the problem. The whole circuit board was mounted to an aluminum backplate which served as a heat sink and was exposed to the wheel. It was so underpowered I doubt it ever overheated though.

    EUC Suspension by RevoltRides. TEASER VIDEO

    There should really be some sort of guard over those spokes. If any clothes, debris, or body parts get stuck in there it won't be pretty.

    I'm so EUCited..

    That's very similar to my first wheel. Just be careful with them, they really don't have a lot of power but they're a great first wheel to learn on and see if you like to ride. If you do like it, expect to be looking at that big price tag again and thinking, "Hey it's not that bad for something that's so fun!"
