  1. Was it your hope to get more power into a compact form factor? EUC's have gotten somewhat bloated and there doesn't seem to be much interest in portability any more... (Initially, this was one of the stronger selling points that made EUC's practical as a 'last mile' solution.)
  2. Have you joined the San Diego Electric Unicycle group yet? You can start here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/sandiegoelectricunicycle and/or contact @Flyboy10 for a Telegram group invite. Also, the KS16X is a fairly new wheel (not going to find many used), but you could borrow my KS16S (have spare) and get-to-know/ride-with us.
  3. Get the Mr. Fusion upgrade.

    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    No need to watch this... (I'm pretty sure once the giant on the left gets into starting position, he'll win the race easily.)
  6. To hell with USB! See if you can mount one of these (Imalent MS18) and get back to us. (Marketing hype, but certainly bright! You gotta love it when that turbo fan kicks in...)

    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    @ZenRyder Watched the whole video; very nice! Great editing with lot's of way-point info and some historical facts. It was such a nice day and it was fun reliving it through this video. I love (SD) city riding!
  8. As is, could a wheel ever pull-off a loop? (Even if you went really, really fast...)
  9. Sadly, it appears that the GenZe line of electric scooters are to be no more... Say goodbye: The only made-in-America electric scooter company closes The prices on these kept creeping up until they were way too expensive for the 50cc scooters they were supposed to compete with. (Note: 50cc scooters are limited to 30mph.) They've also been outclassed by newer electric scooters; (such as the Niu NGT which offers 125cc like performance, but still cost less than the latest GenZe 2.0e). It looks like they sell Niu scooters at my local Vespa shop... Hmm? (I'll pass on the 30mph limited ones, but that NGT model looks tempting.)
  10. Albeit crude, you're definitely innovating with your pad placements. (I especially like the large round one you used for maintaining grip...) Sure it could look nicer, but once it's shown to work, we can always go back and shape the foam so that it looks a better. (I think you're on to something.)
  11. $80 chest protector, who am I Mr. Money Bags? (I'll just eat a bunch of ribs and be protected by a thick layer of fat.)

    Not for EUC's, but may start seeing on bicycles once prices come down further due to increased interest and competition... (It looks like the competition is heating up in the smart-jacket market with the Dainese D-air system and Alpinestars Tech-Air 5 going head-to-head.)

    Not tethered. Uses Irken technology for deployment.
  14. The competition I noted earlier has already brought the price down into the $600-700 range and that's for motorcycle crash protection. My hope is that similar systems for bicycles would be a little cheaper and adaptable to EUC's. (Also, the pricing for airbag refill and replacement programs are coming down as well.)
  15. It looks like the competition is heating up in the smart-jacket market with the Dainese D-air system and Alpinestars Tech-Air 5 going head-to-head. It seems to me that sensor-based systems are going to be the predominate technology going forward. (Tethered systems are just too low-tech.) We're starting to see gear manufacturers like Klim and others adopt In&motion's sensors in order to offer a comparable product. (Helite offers a multi-sensor system which may catch on as well.) The algorithms for all of these black-boxes evolved out of AI machine learning from MotoGP racing before being modified for street motorcycles. In the future, I'd like to see a multi-sensor system modified for EUC riding. Something like Helite's B'Safe with sensors in the vest and a separate Crash Detection Unit (CDU). You'd think they'd already be working on an upgraded protection system for BMX/mountain biking and (with any luck) modifications could (in theory) be made for EUC's. Unfortunately, all my hopes for this are based solely on the fact that they are French and (just maybe) take EUC's more seriously...
