    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    Uploaded some raw 360 footage of a solo descent down Mt Tamalpais. I had previously uploaded a video of the climb up, but felt like doing a little 360 degree video.

    MSX customizations-sharewhat you’ve done

    Wow, your pack looks great! Have you made battery packs before? I ordered a bunch of batteries, and a BMS, but don't know what else I need or what to do next :-p I assume I need to buy a spot welder? If you have any resources from where you learned from I would love to check them out. I'm going to try to learn and make a little video tutorial because a lot of people are interested in doing something like this it seems.

    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    Our EUC group takes on Mount Tamalpais in the Bay Area. We do a small range test with the Ninebot Z10, King Song XL, MSX 84v, and MSX 100v. This mountain was no challenge for us, so we're off to find a higher mountain in the future 😬 Thanks for ewheels for sending the KS 18XL demo unit out to the west coast.

    Here's an interview with WraithRider about some of the protective gear that he's rocking. There's already been some upgrades to his gear though, so we'll have to shoot another one soon πŸ˜…

    Footage of our last mixed PEV group ride around San Francisco. We've got a few people to convert to EUCs so far, but are still largely outnumbered. We're working on changing that though!

    FalconPEV Zero Electric Scooters

    FalconPEV have done a great job at building a unique wins in their economical electric scooter line. They're not as powerful as my Dualtron, but I do think that some of the features might actually be better than a Dualtron (like the font neck clasp, and rear footrest). I recently received and filmed some footage on the Zero 10X around San Francisco, and the results were fantastic. Check out the video here:

    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    Not keeping a secret, but I don’t know the creation details unfortunately. I reached out to someone who I saw had them in a Facebook post and asked them. I actually just checked and I asked for them 4 months ago. I sent some money on PayPal, and luckily I received pedals πŸ˜… I will try to organize a group buy soon because there has been a lot of interest. I think that it would not be too hard to model a nice pedal in solidworks or CAD though for an experienced mechanical engineer.

    Yeah, these are basically one-off custom made pedals, but we might be able to put in a group order if there was demand. I spent about $300 to get these shipped and delivered to me, expensive, but I believe these are custom CNC'd, and not created in bulk. So far feedback seems great on the pedals, and with KS offering larger pedals, I'm sure Gotway will follow suit in the near future. Hopefully at a price point much less than $300.

    For me they really help. I noticed more forward and backward, but they really lock your feet in so control is improved. I know what it feels like to be a tiny person riding a EUC, it's great! πŸ˜… I've heard rumors of larger pedals, is it true? We should wait to find out if so, these pedals were not cheap at around $300 😭

    Dragon pedals - massive pedals for Gotway electric unicycles. They're super comfortable and enhance performance of the EUC for those with big feet.

    It does feel that way sadly, even though I've mostly stopped making my trick videos in favor of reviews recently. There's gotta be something from your deep woodworking skills that could make for a better pedal solution here.

    The Gotway pedal rod infuriates me, and this last extraction was my toughest battle yet. Patiently waiting for a better design, or stronger materials πŸ™. Here's a video of some ideas in case anyone else gets a stuck pedal rod.

    Minimotors Speedway V

    Hopefully ewheels gets them in. Minimotorsusa currently has them listed for $2,250. Tell them that AlienRides sent you in the order comments if you order https://minimotorsusa.com/collections/speedway/products/speedway-5-electric-scooter Yeah, the Thunder is one serious machine, and the power is unreal. I'm usually the fastest out of everyone in our mixed-PEV group. The speed is addictive though, already got my eyes on the Dualtron X. 😬

    Oh no, I'm fairly certain it's destiny at this point. After the fight, they need to team up to form some EUC Avengers to take on the baddie that neither could handle on their own. Perhaps an evil alien πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”
