    UNO BOLT Headed to Hollywood

    No love for the Mini by Uno Bolt. Sadly, only 1 backer on Indiegogo last I checked. ☚ī¸ (Most likely due to bad reviews of Kiwano K01 and similar pogo style unicycles...) The company appears to be local. I wonder how many Uno Bolt's are cruising around Sarasota and Venice Beach in Florida.

    Women asking more questions?

    I see maneuvering to protect children while parents struggle to contemplate the possible dangers... I ride with extra courtesy and caution as I pass by, but perhaps the real threat is in making 'wheeling' seem normal/cool/fun (2 kidz). 👅

    Also, beware of the "18650" batteries on these headlights. If they are real 18650's (and not complete fakes) they are usually poor quality knock-offs. Don't expect high-output or much longevity from one or two batteries running a headlight with multiple bright LEDs.

    Dammit. Had to read this thread from the beginning to put this quote in context... Who the hell thought it was a good idea to revive this thread?

    Night rides

    Typical exaggerated lumen claims for this type of headlight. Usually you find a headlight with several (supposedly 'genuine') Cree LED's claiming multiple thousands of lumens. I believe the popular (often cited/copied) Cree T6 LEDs topped out at somewhere around 700 lumens at high amps (and even newer ones rarely exceed 1000 lumens at max output). I saved a link to a 7 LED headlamp listed at 10000 lumens from Amazon (but the link no longer works, so here's a 5 LED 10000 lumen for ya). The formula for making wild lumen claims goes something like this: Take lumen specs for Cree LED at high amps (or max watts) Multiply by 3X Multiply by number of LEDs This seller knows the game and takes it even further by placing an American flag on the product; (yet inexplicably omits the words 'tactical' in the product description).

    LOL. I think here in Florida... Just go to sidecar-willy.com

    UK police wanting to contact me

    Just became aware of the case of ANUS vs. USA (1999) while doing research... This has nothing to do with euc's (more like wheeled sled racing), but it was mentioned on another unicycle forum unicyclist.com. (Some group decided to call themselves the American National Unimotorcyclists Society.) I think it goes without saying, we would not want to be associated with this group (or the term 'Unimotorcyclists') from now on...

    I would like to see QR stickers on the rentals that automatically launch an app/website for reporting where the vehicles are getting dumped. (Obviously, too many bad reports and you get banned from the service.)

    Riding on roads

    I'm out for a leisurely bike ride on a Sunday afternoon... Suddenly, I hear a car 'gun it' right behind me. (This happens to me all the time along the same residential stretch of road.) Trucks or cars with big engines are always trying to scare me off the road. Most of the time, I get out of the way and continue riding on the sidewalk (roads in my neighborhood rarely have curbs). However, it's not like the car (or truck) can't go around me; they just don't like sharing the road with anybody. Note: It's worse at night or on weekends because 'all bets are off' when no kids are present; (yes, it's a school zone). 🚸

    Dualtron II EX

    Maybe this helps? (Note: not trying to be an ass... I don't have one of these scooters, so I don't know if it's that simple or not.) 🛴 You said you did this part already, but here is removing the rear wheel... It's hard to tell where you are stuck. Maybe, do a quick Google search and watch a few videos... (Sorry, if you already have but still frustrated.) ☚ī¸

    18l presale specs

    The official specs from Kingsong say the 18L shell is 180mm wide... The 16S uses packs with cells stacked in layers which causes a bulge in its shell (and it's listed at 196mm). 18L / 16S Looking at the picture above, I have a hard time believing the KS16S shell is fatter than the 18L. 🤔
