    How to learn EUC to a child?

    Started training last week. It's been going pretty well I must say. I just hold the EUC with my left hand between her legs from the back, position myself to the right hand side of the euc, and she mounts both pedals while I hold the device steady. She holds my right hand for stability, and once she starts riding I let go of the EUC and just walk along and she can use my hand for balance. We're doing 8 - 10 km/h which is plenty fast when you have to follow on foot She manages to stop, put one foot on the gound and keep the euc stable with the other foot. Not easy for her since she is a lot smaller (6 years old and not tall for her age) and it's nearly the equivalent of an adult riding a Gotway Monster. I don't have any fences of walls that can be used for training here, just an open parking lot. And the most important part: she is motivated. She wants to go out and practice, I am not asking her to do it.

    Unicycle storage (holder, dock etc)

    Not talking about storage, just parking in the sun. Weight won't be the problem. That's right. I only use PLA for decorative stuff tbh.

    My MSuper V3s+ Ascent of Mount Wilson

    What's the difference between this and wearing a helmet, knee pads, gloves, wrist protectors and a rear view mirror?

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    Yes they do. And if you print it thicker it's extremely tough too

    8 laces?
  6. I suppose some of you have experience with this? I have a 6 year old at home, and a generic 14" EUC that goes 18 km/h max and is completely padded. So what's the best way of teaching this? Shoot!

    Absolutely. Once we get to the second half of October, it's over and out here. Too much rain.

    Not necessarily. The law says: to go faster than X on the public road with a device containing a motor your device needs liability insurance for damages caused to others. Insurers say: we can't insure EUC as we have no official info about them (specs, safety, compliance, max speed etc etc) so we don't know what we insure and what our risk is, so we can't put a price on it. There is no contradiction. If tomorrow I build some contraption with 5 wheels and 10 electro motors that can go 200 km/h it does not give me the right to use it on the autobahn.

    I just saw this popup in my unread messages. Don't come here since I don't speak German Do I understand it correctly that your EUC got confiscated by the German police? Since I come in Germany from time to time it might be good to know about this 😱

    Rockwheel GT18 is far away. The ones I listed are the ones we can actually (pre)order right now. And I don't care about the KS18L 😛

    It's a great time to be buying an EUC, unless you want one NOW. V10F, we have to wait Z10, we have to wait MSuper X, we have to wait Lots of waiting 😛

    PETG for the stands, ColorFabb nGen for the horizontal parts. There are some things I don't understand in the design (not in the least the gigantic hole sizes), but it does the job. I think it's possible to design a similar one in one piece, without bolts, but that would be a lot les efficient for shipping,

    I'm in Belgium, not Brussels. Ordered mine from onewheel.be . The May batch. Used to have a V8 before (sold long time ago). Currently only own an Mten3. http://onewheel.be/
  14. Get well soon! Are you sure this is the actual speed, and not your wheel spinning freely before it completely cut out? I would say there is only one way to know. If you want to be scientifically correct, tests should be reproduced and lead to the same outcome given the same circumstances 🤓
