  1. Pretty sure I want an euc with suspension. Which one? Easy. This time I'll hold my money in the bank until @Marty Backe put both of them through their paces, so I have some objective data wrt speed, range and comfort.
  2. Ride a street bicycle without suspension on your average trip (so not 100% race-circuit smooth asphalt), and do the same with a street bicycle with front fork suspension. The difference is huge. I felt it myself because only since last week I have a bicycle with front suspension. Never had one before or tried one. What you never had you don't miss. This is not built with as main purpose to jump from stairs or fly over speed bumps. These are just extreme cases used to show you the suspension in a video, and of course that's where you hit the limits. These suspensions will shine on roads where you can't see them move, you'll just feel them (or feel less because your knees won't need to do all the work and you can simply stand up straight instead of slightly squatting for hours, with all the extra fatigue that it induces). If this suspension were to be tuned for extreme bumps and jumps, it would be super hard for small bumps and holes in the road, rendering it completely useless except for the most extreme of circumstances. I'd rather have a suspension that bottoms out when jumping from a 3' ledge, than one that leaves me with 25% travel left when doing it but on the other side rattling my teeth when riding over cobblestones.
  3. Read the description.
  4. I have 3 wheels and a Onewheel. Mten3, Z10, KS16X. If I get a 4th one I'll get rid of the Z10. No time to ride them all.
  5. Where is the spring? I only see a shock. Oh, and I just came back to this forum after a couple months to say: Damn you, KingSong! Got the KS16X in 1019 and it was going to last me a while. Now I feel the need to upgrade again Time to sell the Z10...
  6. You don't need flexmeters for high speed crashes. You need gloves with sliders, such as the Knox gloves. The flexmeters are best for hard low-speed impacts where you fall nearly vertically. When going fast you need sliders to avoid your wrist to grip the pavement, overextend and break. Flexmeters also do this of course, but as you noticed they don't protect your fingers. I no longer wear wrist guards when riding. I only use motorcycle gloves with sliders. (I have Knox gloves and very happy with them).
  7. ehh... ok then. We're not exactly going to encounter a nuclear holocaust. It's just a flu virus. We had stuff like this happen before. Remember H1N1 in 2009? Well guess what, it's become part of the "regular flue strains" we see every winter since then. Chances are the same thing will happen with this one. The only thing I noticed is that the FFP3 masks that I used to buy all of the sudden became 20% more expensive The only solid advice is to wash your hands a lot and keep them away from your face/mouth if not cleaned. But that's also good for not contracting colds or any other flu.
  8. I restrict myself to 15mph (and usually below that) on my OW. For me it's something to have fun on for an hour or so, carving around the neighbourhood, not something to do a 20 mile trip.
  9. Heb ook in geen maanden gereden. Is voor mij echt een seizoensartikel. Eind oktober is het meestal gedaan met bollen hier, tot in april.
  10. You should only eat vegetables and fruits grown in your own garden and fertilised with your own poo.
  11. The original GT16 was also a steal in terms of performance, but it lacked fit and finish. The case was very fragile and the paint quality was a disaster.
  12. Until the day Walmart realises nobody buys those "hoverwheels"
  13. https://www.mediamarkt.be/nl/product/_segway-hoverboard-gyropode-ninebot-one-s2-1611475.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaMarkt It is Europe's largest retailer of consumer electronics, and the second largest in the world after American retailer Best Buy. Number of locations 850+ in 13 European countries Big enough?
  14. And we all know what those $100 hoverboards did ... burst in flames and created a lot of issues for us, ELECTRIC UNICYCLE owners.
  15. Major retailers have already been carrying these for a long time. I could find them next to the hooverboards at my local store. This is what they all look like (different colors):
  16. specs: Those specs are pure madness. Glad they seem to have improved the shell too.
  17. The only kids (I am talking about real kids, not 13 year olds) that learn to ride an ELECTRIC UNICYCLE are those who's parent(s) rides one. No 7 year old is going to ask for one of these, especially since compared to a bicycle mom or dad won't be able to learn it to their kid, and compared to a skateboard or roller blades mom or dad know zero about it nor do they know anyone who actually rides one of those things. And even the lamest ELECTRIC UNICYCLE is a lot more expensive than a crappy skateboard or roller blades (or hoverboard for that matter). That hasn't stopped any kid from learning how to roller skate.
  18. I have a V5F at home too. For my 8 year old daughter It will be a BIG step up :p
  19. From my personal experience: I had one of the first KS16X, and my main board died while sitting at my house. In the mean time there have been revisions of the main board with different layouts and I got an improved one installed. This is the risk of getting a V1 of something. Pretty sure the platform is pretty stable now.
  20. People that have nothing bad to say will not post here, or not as much. You get 10 pages filled with 5 people that complain. The 10 people that are happy will not fill 10 pages repeating 5 times each "mine worked fine today!". He doesn't seem to be too unhappy about it https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFeDZyrD6D5AjG1KSO9NLVQ/videos
  21. That's simply wrong. Where are all those negative reviews you talk about? Yes it is, unless your goal is to constantly ride at more than 45km/h. In that case I would get a Gotway Nikola or an MSX 100V. I have zero problems with mine but I never go above 45km/h and usually ride 38-42 km/h.
  22. To be more sustainable people should simply stop ordering stuff on Gearbest, Banggood and Aliexpress. Think of the CO2 cost of shipping all that junk from China + the environmental cost of all those grey plastic bags they use.
  23. Can't you add more ventilation/perforation to the outside of the glove for this? Gloves will be hot in summer no matter what material, IMO.
