  1. I think Silver Branch is only local delivery and sales, are a few local retail outlets like Fenwick Beer and Wine may also carry it but I don't know if they can ship outside Maryland. I'll check with them today and see if they have a way to send any out. That picture is of Ray, their delivery manager. That's what the van will look like when he makes my delivery, but he's only half done loading.
  2. Last year I chased down a robber and got the victim's money back, and posted about it here. Tomorrow the brewers are honoring me by releasing a delicious bock beer, named Unicycle Vigilante! Here is a picture of the label flat and on a can. Also an Instagram post about it from the brewery.
  3. Insurance is regulated on a state-by-state basis, but general policy types are pretty standard. Your insurance agent should be able to sell you an "umbrella policy" that would cover liability from the EUC, for example if you were to hit a pedestrian with it.
  4. As I understand it, the cutoff angle is a tradeoff between an accidental cutout and an out-of-control wheel that has excessive death-roll when you fall off. I seem to remember that @EUC Extreme , one of the forum old-timers, had a special Gotway wheel that had a 75 degree cutoff. I think this is one of the videos of that.
  5. After using the app for a year and donating to Seba a couple of times, I'm just getting around to making a list of all my questions and issues. No doubt many of these are user error, and they may have even been answered in the previous 68 pages of posts on this thread. That won't stop me from making a post to call my very own. I'm using it with a KS16S on the original Pixel phone. It's an older phone but is working fine for everything I need it for. What is the most recent version? The app shows 1.4.2 but https://euc.world/getapplication says 1.0.6; Play Store has no version but says it
  6. Good idea. With all the crap that's happened in 2020, the last thing we need is a family of bears riding EUCs and terrorizing campers.
  7. Maybe? I've had several battery packs and EUCs that have sat idle for a year at partial charge without any appreciable issues. OTOH I have had many devices "sit on the charger" for two years and go bad. If Li-Ion battery packs generally last 5 years no matter what you do, then yes the EUC wrapped around it is likely to be obsolete before the battery pack goes bad. That hasn't been my experience though. The battery has gone bad first. But 300 topped-up charges are about the point where the battery starts to degrade, so that experience doesn't contradict anything. The question is if you
  8. Not sure why people get hung up on a few tens of watt-hours in the battery spec. The EUC makers are just repeating the best-case conditions the cell makers use so there's no deception past the over-optimistic claims of any other manufacturer. There are so many variables here that it hardly matters. Actual range depends more on rider weight and ambient battery temperature than the fuzzy specs the cell manufacturers use, which of course are based on perfect conditions. If you charge to 100% every day in order to hit those lofty voltage numbers it hurts the battery lifetime. If you want to
  9. I tore the ACL and meniscus in my right knee in an EUC accident in March 2018. It took longer than I would have liked to recover, mainly because my first doctor didn't think surgery was required. It wasn't healing right though, so I went to another doctor and did get surgery in August of that year. After 8 months of physical therapy I started riding carefully again. You should definitely work hard at PT, it will make a difference in your endurance on the wheel. I just went for a 27 mile ride yesterday and the knee felt fine.
  10. The Bodyguard is made out of neoprene. You can get sheet neoprene relatively cheaply but then you have to use a pattern of some type to cut it properly. I thought about using a pair of neoprene diving shorts and sewing the legs shut but that was going to be $30 plus my crappy effort so I realized that the Bodyguard was a pretty good deal after all.
  11. Ride with a backpack. If they stop you, say you're going to the market. It doesn't have to be the closest one to your home.
  12. That will last maybe two weeks and you'll be back at the limit again with a slower wheel. Take it from someone who's done it a few times.
  13. A new battery pack is going to be expensive, usually a dealer like ewheels can give you a price for it. If the battery pack was banging around the first thing to check is whether any of the wires or welds inside the pack were broken. You might be able to repair it if that is the problem. There is shrink wrap around the pack that you can carefully cut and peel off to reveal the wires and connections. Once everything is repaired just get some new battery pack shrink wrap and put it around the pack, then shrink it with a heat gun or hair dryer. Charge each pack separately and check the volta
  14. I found a great new hoverwheel! Edit: I have been told this is a hover-EEL. More specifically, that's a moray.
