  1. I believe in the first 1 min of the video he says its 3"
  2. I think this list is probably mostly correct but I disagree with the rollerblade placement. I think rollerblades should go somewhere after electric kick scooter and before skiis. They are stable at rest and quite slow so I think by default should be safer than all the electric stuff.
  3. FWIW the D30 material is the same material used in the Demon Flexmeters that many of us are wearing.
  4. Right now its a toss up between the MCM5 and the KS18L. One is better on the sidewalk and one is better on the road. In general if I had to pick only one I'd probably pick the KS18L but I really miss the torque on the MCM5. I have a suspicion the Tesla might actually be the perfect commute wheel for me but I've never ridden one so I'm not sure. Also, ironically considering common stereotypes, the KS18L has been less reliable and durable for me than the MCM5.
  5. Just to chime in here, I have actually ridden scooters, e-skates, EUCs, and even owned an URB-E for a while. My goal was to find the most efficient and practical way to commute around a dense city (San Francisco). I have been using EUCs exclusively to commute for over a year now and have gone through 6 different ones trying to find the 'holy grail' EUC for commute purposes. EUC's are the most compact shape that can be unobtrusively stored even when taking it in with you into crowded restaurants or bars, something that cannot be said of any of the other options. While scooters and the URB-
  6. This thread is making me reconsider my ACM2 sale.
  7. Yep, I actually do like the wheel a lot but without a trolly the use cases I have for it are so rare I can't really be justified in keeping it for now.
  8. Speed: Comfortably over 30mph - this is rider weight dependent and I've never pushed for max speed. Battery: 1600Wh Weight: 43 lbs Shipping: Prefer local, will ship in the US but will split shipping costs with buyer
  9. Bought new from eWheels middle of March. Has 553 km of mileage according to the app and a few beauty marks.
  10. I have been using these as my daily drivers since April since then I have, ahem, tested them... Overall they have a much smaller footprint than the demon flexmeters that I also use and provide reasonable protection. While I think for the most part they will stop you from seriously injuring your wrist in most falls, they do not provide the same level of support. So while breaking your wrist seems unlikely if you are wearing these, I have sprained my wrist and had other minor injuries on falls where I've had similar falls on my demon wristguards and came away untouched (on my hands/wrists).
  11. The trouble with a minipro is if she is more interested in going on little fun trips with you than she is in learning to ride an EUC she may not actually progress to EUCs if you give her a minipro to ride.
  12. Can't you just turn the wheel perpendicular to the slope before lifting it?
  13. That resolution to not give in to new wheel temptation is already gone and new wheels haven't even been released yet!
