  1. Not sure if you're still taking votes, but I have to throw this one by @Wraith Rider in the mix: Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCc1Yq9VYm0
  2. Build quality is amazing, maybe the highest quality scooter I've ever ridden. The locking mechanism felt super secure to me and was easy to operate, I'm not sure how it holds up over time. There was also zero play in the handlebars. I think the Weped GT is super stable at speed, but has a lower top-end than the Dualtron Thunder. It's definitely a high quality scooter and I hope it does well, because I'd love to see more Weped scooters imported.
  3. Made a little dedicated Weped GT50 review video. I gotta say, Weped is definitely good at delivering a quality product. Both EUC and scooter manufacturers could learn from them.
  4. So much depends on speed and elevation that itโ€™s hard to say. I would venture 70-80 miles no problem for you though riding conservatively on fairly tame conditions. Thatโ€™s such a beast of a wheel and I think you would have plenty of range. (Iโ€™ve never tested myself, just guessing based on my experience with other wheels)
  5. I haven't done it myself, but I think it's doable if you have some simple mechanical skills.
  6. Not quite a full review, but testing out the Monster and give a few impressions during a group ride in San Francisco.
  7. I haven't owned one for a while, but I've had a few friends who do own them. So far the primary issue I've seen is with the rear shocks needing to be replaced, nothing besides that so far. I think the Speedway V scooters are selling very well actually, many sellers constantly running out of stock. Not sure why there's not more videos on YouTube, I'd like to make more.
  8. Hah, interesting - I don't really notice a problem with grip. They don't hit my side pads since they're higher, but if you have lower padding I could see that happening. A little bit worried about them scratching up the shell though. Yeah, I don't really like the heel. You can take them to a cobbler to get them re-soled, which I will probably do at some point when I get a new pair.
  9. Made my day, thanks Marty! ๐Ÿ˜Š Hope to see and compete with you in the LA EUC games!
  10. The Weped GT50 specifically. It's an awesome looking scooter, maybe a little bit big/heavy for a shopping run, but it sure is beautiful. I did make a video on that scooter as well: Riding solo is really a ton of fun, but with a group occasionally really changes things. Keep riding and posting videos and it's only a matter of time before you find some local riders.
  11. EUCs in our mixed-PEV footage are growing, here's some footage of our recent group ride. I love the footage at the 2:25 mark, we have too much fun out there.
  12. I find unboxing these unicycles fairly anticlimactic since it's just the wheel and two pieces of foam. Not sure if you saw this video though, I show it coming out of the box briefly ๐Ÿ˜… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csNQLSXN4Ek
  13. I documented an event by PEVRA to promote electric vehicles and train new riders. I like the pole method that @who_the was using.
  14. Thanks, yeah - to be honest my video gear is a LOT more protective than my everyday riding gear. For commuting I'm a lot less protected. I do know that @who_the has some sweet knee pads that he wears all day long, I hope he's ok with me sharing these intimate details ๐Ÿ˜… I'm also looking at acquiring some padded motorcycle jeans as well, which may or not work depending on your profession. Reading this definitely made me want to re-assess my commute safety gear though.
  15. Yeah, I think I definitely want to attempt to use a seat on the Monster. For most other EUCs a seat is not very comfortable for me due to the low height, I think it could work well on the monster though. The Monster is already such a smooth ride, putting a seat will be like riding a gyro-stabilized lazy boy cruiser.
