  1. What wheel and charger (amps) were you using? Good job!! 😎
  2. What wheel and charger (amps) were you using? That’s an average moving speed of 20 mph if I’m understanding correctly. Nice! 😎
  3. I’ve seen that one as well. Not sure where you ride, but here in Houston there are several hundred Onewheel riders while there are at most a dozen EUC riders. I’d guess 10 to 1 ratio and I can’t figure it out! Is Houston different? Maybe it’s a US anomaly. Why would anyone choose a onewheel over an EUC? My EUC’s are so much more capable than a Onewheel! There is a slight difference in learning curve due to the fat wheel (That is easily solved by any EUC company!), but $1800 for 324 wh, 750 watt motor Is INSANE!? If Gotway, Kingsong, Inmotion etc came out with those specs at that price range they would get laughed out of here! Is it the foot stance that makes Onewheel so popular? As someone that both snowboards and skis, I find the stance to be relatively unimportant, but most people don’t do both. I think the EUC companies are missing out on a huge opportunity to sell way more wheels if they gave a few “snowboard/fat wheel” options. Even if Onewheel’s domination over more common EUC’s (technically they are all EUC’s) is something only seen here in the US, the EUC companies should take note and adjust so they can sell 10 times the number of wheels they currently sell.
  4. Didn’t see it posted yet...Onewheel is incredibly popular but surprisingly limited in range and top speed. Will the EUC companies ever offer a foot position option? Maybe with a fatter wheel to lessen the learning curve?
  5. I'll let the auction end (it's currently at $510), and if you win it we can arrange to have you pick it up. That'll save on the shipping.

  8. I know some of done 100 miles in a day, but has anyone consistently done more than that? If so how? How many amps were they charging at and at what speed did they travel at? I’d guess it would be an 84v monster 2400 wh charging at 15 amps, but am I wrong? The faster you travel the more you increase the time needed to charge. Thanks! Evel
  9. A OW is the same thing as an EUC, simply a different stance and fatter wheel. They both require power to balance themselves. Exceed their ability to balance and you WILL bust your ass (or face). Many EUC’s have more power (speed capability) than the OW, so that is safer. They are less likely to cutout/nose dive. The second reason is that all EUC’s that I’m aware of beep as well as tilt back when you get close to exceeding their capabilities. OW only tilts back if I’m not mistaken. For those two reasons an EUC is safer.
  10. I recommend an EUC. The only con against it is the learning curve, but hey use it as bonding time! I ride all the time with my son... I really am NOT a fan of onewheels and do NOT think they are safer. I have a neighbor that asked me the same thing around christmas. He ended buying a ninebot S2 off ebay for his granddaughter. He's told me numerous times that it's one of the best purchases he's made since she rides it all the time.
  11. I've done about 700 skydives, 50 paragliding flights down in Rio (gorgeous pace to fly!), 40ish BASE jumps, 5 Bungee...Hell even did a skydive from a paraglider with a BASE rig! Moving from Rio (paragliding territory) to Houston (paramotoring territory) I never made the transition. Might someday, but just seemed completely different than gliding silently through the air. Remember actually flying with a flock of buzzards one time, and they didn't seem to be bothered by me at all. Paramotoring would definitely be cool though! I rank riding EUC's at 30 mph right up there with the rest of the crazy shit I've done! Next on my list is the scooter cannonball (coast to coast on a sub 300 cc scooter in about 10 days). Go for it ALL!!!
  12. I'm having trouble getting EUC.world to graph my data. The CSV file is uploaded automatically, but the data isn't graphed and "tour" isn't logged. I have start and finish tour with connection and loss selected...any help you all can give me would be appreciated. Thanks!
  13. And one-wheels are no where near the machines that high end EUC's are as you have noted. Not from a performance standpoint or a value standpoint. I'd say the only real advantage is they are easier to learn, but we are talking a couple hours so it's dwarfed by the EUC advantages.
  14. Just a couple suggestions. I have not read the entire thread so my suggestions may be repetitive: If you have a narrow (normal width) hallway you can use, it doesn't have to be long...start getting on and off while bracing yourself with your arms between the two walls. Even better if the floor is carpeted. Get comfortable with that then try riding down the hallway without bracing yourself (use the wall when needed to avoid falling off). The distance you can ride will slowly increase until you can get on and ride the entire hallway and get off without using the walls. If you don't have a hallway get a shopping cart and brace yourself while riding the wheel in an open area like a parking lot. Get comfortable with getting on and off while using the cart then without the cart. If you can find a artificially turfed area (even short grass) you won't need any assistance, just the grit to challenge yourself to ride a little further and break your last distance record. Total time to learn (about 2 hours). Break it up into 15-30 minute sessions over 2 or more days. You might duck tape some cardboard around your EUC as padding so you don't beat the hell out of it while learning to ride it. Learning to ride is hard on wheels! Keep us posted. Adrian
