  1. Don't leave out a wheelie and the wheelies!
  2. I have found a bicycle stand (see below Amazon link) with a little modification, it can become a stand for almost any wheels. So far, I have used it with KS16, KS18S, KS18L, InMotion V10F, GotWay MSuper.... This stand comes with pre-drilled holes meant for bicycles with narrow tires. Its built is very solid. However, you can drill more holes wider apart into its bottom bars/legs to suit the size of your wheel. You can use it as storage stand. I use them in my car trunk to transport my wheels. They are stable and would be even more stable if you secure it with a bungee. I used to lie my wheels down flat during transport, but now I can stand them up, save trunk space and I find loading is easier too because I don't really have to reach forward in to my trunk to unload my wheels. https://www.amazon.com/Sunlite-Adjustable-Display-Stand-Black/dp/B00B136KQS/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Sunlite+Adjustable+Display+Stand%2C+Black&qid=1574538464&s=home-garden&sr=1-1

  4. In San Francisco, I find sidewalks are better maintained than the roads which may have unexpected potholes and cracks. Unexpected falls can always happen...you definitely don't want to end up rolling over by any cars or trucks! First of preference is sidewalks, then bike paths, last roads...
  5. Let's make some donations to support this project. It's not easy to find someone to do this! I donated USD 25 already.
  6. You just got assaulted! See him again, take his photo and report his ass! Note the time of his ride passing you and figure out his routine and give the info to police to track him down and enforce the law.
  7. I just want to respond to someone who said riding EUCs has no exercise value. If you just stand on a treadmill, there isn't much exercise value either. A machine/tool/toy's value is what you can do with it. When I am riding my EUC for exercise, I can dance, do squats, perform tricks... they can make me break out a sweat. If you don't think riding EUCs have any exercise values, maybe you haven't really explore the things or exercise you can do on it that will make you sweat.... Any exercise suggestions on EUCs out there???
  8. Is there a trail leading to this area?
  9. I've been there 2 years ago as you, a beginner. I think a number of things create the wobble: 1) Placement of feet - In the beginning, you should place them as close to the center of the wheel as close as possible. 2) Muscle coordination of various parts of your body - To achieve that, think about how each part of your body movement can affect your balance and try to eliminate the unnecessary/uncalled for movements. 3) Focus on moving in a steady straight line to feel and to attain the necessary body control to stop the wobbling. When you let the wheel stray just a tiny bit left or right before you can master it moving in a straight line, it is going to create wobbling. I hope these tips help!
  10. Can we imagine a world of wheelers, if it ever comes true?
  11. To Vince23heat: V10F is several lbs. light than KS18L and carrying the V10F feels better because it is slimmer than KS18L. The V10F is also more manipulable due to being lighter and slimmer.
  12. After I got my KS18S awhile ago, my wife said to me while wheeling on the road, "Stop! My feet are aching, need to walk a bit...." I said, "feet aching? No such thing...."
  13. Hmmm... An amphibious wheel... the next generation! Down payment ready for pre-order!
