  1. The 2021 Ford F-250 Lariat Tremor With A Ramp Kit Makes A Pretty Great Way To Haul A Changli Across The Country [Jalopnik]
  2. "Carson Brown has made many things, but can be blamed (most notably) for his part in making the Uniwheel." This is a sad comment on the fate of the Uniwheel (and a jibe at electric unicycles in general). Switching to a crowded scooter market is going to be a tough sell.
  3. The last micro-scooter I bought turned out to be a crowdfunding nightmare... The MiniFalcon (The E-Scooter That Fits In A Backpack) was never delivered to most backers. (I actually got mine, but haven't ridden because it's probably a piece of junk.) The first crowdfunded scooter I posted about (The Swan) didn't meet it's targets either, but eventually became the basis for the Unagi Model One E500 electric scooter. Hard to tell what's total crap from what isn't with crowdfunding (you take your chances), but I have one more to mention because it's kind of relevant here...
  4. I know nothing about Uniwheel, but came across kickstarter for scooter influenced by one of its designers. Look closely at photo... Can you spot the euc influence in this design? (Hint: stance.)
  5. I'm looking at these tees and I'm thinking they are guys.
  6. I tell people it's the poor man's Tesla... (The one wheel was all I could afford).
  7. Maybe 'yukes' is catching on, I dunno. (Probably the best we can do with only 3 letters.) Among ourselves we tend to say 'wheel' (in singular form); but I'm still waiting to see what name the media comes up with...
  8. A certain amount of jacking can be tolerated (in fact it's expected) on this thread. However, please refrain from playing with other people's balls. Thank you.
  9. It's usually a brand name or an acronym that catches on. Unfortunately, Segway's have moved on and Gotway's (or the even worse alternatives) - not too catchy. EUC isn't much to work with... It sorta sounds like "you-see" (but not quite.) It could easily be Li-EUC, which sounds like "lew-see" or simply "lucy", but... (where was I going with this)?
  10. It's hard to find anyone who has compared the 16S to the V8F. The 16S was popular when it came out because it was more powerful than the V8, but not much heavier (similar size). When V10/V10F came out, most preferred the V10F; (V10 used cheaper batteries to undercut 16S on price). By the time the V8F came out, the 16S was considered an older design (along with V8). However, since the original V8 was a true competitor to the 16S (and a classic), InMotion decided to upgrade the V8 as a cheaper alternative (versus V10).
  11. Not so sure the V8F couldn't handle hills well; (I imagine it performs similar to the 16S). People are mostly familiar with the V8 and V10F (and 16S). Unlike the V10/V10F (which came out at the same time), the V8F was released more recently to address the need for more power. However, the V8F could have used more batteries. The V10 (which was less popular than V10F because of battery capacity) costs about the same as V8F, but has more power and range. (The main advantage the V8F has over V10 is portability.) Consider how important ease of carrying is to your decision. (Don't forget,
  12. As a 'last-mile' transport, the 16S tends to fly-under-the-radar. Slightly larger than 14" version; yet still fits under seats of buses and trains. I don't get a second look around or near stations/depots where lots of people are trolleying luggage. One of the last wheels designed with portability in mind. (Power and distance are the new priority.)
  13. Not sure what the 'debate' is here. (It sounds like you made out on this deal.)
  14. He doesn't even mention speed and you recommend Gotway. (I love it!) Apparently, 18XL too slow and he would know. (I don't use for commuting, but handles road well.)
