  1. It all depends on what you want to do with it. Is it for getting the mail in the morning, or the Dakar rally?
  2. I'm really getting a feeling here that you like to argue a lot, and find arguments where there are none. I'm going to assume this is just me reading the wrong meaning out of your posts. We seem to be mostly in agreement anyways. Crash = bad Safety gear = good Hope you have a great day.
  3. That comparison is only fair if I first had stated something like "It's impossible to have any accident in a car, while not using a seatbelt without getting seriously injured or dying" The reason for my comment in the first place was because of your claim how it was near impossible to NOT damage your head in a fall like that. You might also have noticed how I wrote that despite this I DO in fact wear a helmet? Maybe we can just agree that safety gear in most cases is a good thing?
  4. I'm not going to voice my opinion on any political topics. Still I'll just chime in and say that on both my 30km/h+ crashes my head is the only thing not to have touched the ground. I wear a light open face helmet.
  5. I'm making a similar journey in a few weeks, with stops in Barcelona and Girona. Interested in renting/borrowing and maybe join a local rider/riders for some rides at these places if it is possible.
  6. I'm usually going with the carrying option, as reducing speed is a dealbreaker when I'm traveling. Maybe there is a big untapped market for suitcases with wheels capable of going at 50-60 km/h?
  7. @Mono What kind of suitcase are you using that is suitable for trollying behind you? I've done this myself, but all of the suitcases I've tried had these crappy plastic wheels that start melting when they get a little bit of speed.
  8. @Sports Promotions Did this shoot ever happen? I contacted you guys, but never got an answer.
  9. I've been riding in Trondheim, Norway for years. No problems with law enforcement so far, but I do take alternative paths if I see them early enough. Better safe than sorry. Since we have so many Norwegians in this thread, I'll have to ask. Anyone riding in/around Trondheim?
  10. https://e-wheels.no/produkt/enhjuling/kingsong-ks18xl You could get a decent price on the XL at this Norwegian shop. 20 000,- kr = 2051,- Euro I've bought all my wheels from here. If you don't mind IMHO a complete lack of proper customer support, it could be worth it regarding the price.
  11. Can't we just outlaw being injured all together while we are at it?
  12. Might it be a case of the newbiewobbles, coming from untrained muscles? He said he's been riding for a week.
  13. I have not been able to have a look at the video regarding the sideways tilt, but believe I might have a similar issue on my KS18S. Yes, it occurs wether I ride it "forwards" or "backwards" , always the same pedal will be dipping a consideral amount more than the other, and it is the same pedal dipping wether I have my left or right foot on it. I've ridden lot's of different wheels over several years, never had this issue. As it has been getting worse lately as I have gotten close to 3000km on, I suspect it might be a problem with the seating of the tire, and the thread on one side being worn more, making it worse. (Riding 99% with power button on front) It's recently gotten so bad I think I'll have to try a realignment, but it has never really been a big bother. Curious if it is the same. Anyways, good luck with that refund!
  14. Hei, Vi i Norge har rimelig like regler når det kommer til elektriske kjøretøy. Maks lovlige hastighet er 20 kmh, og det hjelper ikke å sette ned toppfarten til 20kmh på ett hjul som kan kjøre raskere. Fordelen for oss som kjører slike et at det er ikke så mange av oss, så politiet har ikke noe fokus på å stoppe oss. Jeg har kjørt i Norge i flere år, og har enhjulinger som går opp til 50kmh. Så lenge du ikke kjører som en idiot, og har respekt for fotgjengere, og andre som deler veien tviler jeg på at du vil få noen problemer med politiet. Det virker som at det er folk i England som har mest problemer med myndighetene, der er det flere tilfeller av folk som har fått sine hjul konfiskert. Skandinavia er nok trygt i noen år framover, så det er bare å kjøpe seg ett hjul og kjøre i vei!
