  1. Frustrating day yesterday all, seems like I took a step back!! Been able to mount the EUC however get it rolling forward has been an issue. I had a few nasty spills, good I had my wrist guards and elbow guards at least!! Ive been tinkering with my system on the Ninebot E+ do you know what setting would be good for a newbie under "Rider Sensitivity" I have it on a 4 I believe, any help there would be appreciated. Also are you quick to lose your feel just after a few days off? Must say I was soo defeated yesterday, wondering if I will ever get this!! let alone ride in public!
  2. So I spent the last few days practicing a bit. Went to my local park, must say practicing on grass probably accelerated my learning 10 fold. Psychologically I had no major fear of falling, albeit sounds petty but I also didnt have a "fear" of damaging my EUC. After a few sessions on the grass I moved over to my parking garage. Using the Triangle method I am now able to at least mount the EUC, the last few times I managed to roll out 5ft in each direction back and forth. Another thing that helped me was wearing thicker wool socks, it helped protect my ankles more and helped me really jam my ankle next to the EUC. I plan on working on mounting more smoothly, and working on my forward momentum, I basically am thinking hop on and go!!
  3. Thank you so much for the support guys! May try to get out there again in a little bit! Merry Christmas to all!!
  4. Gees that is SOOOOOOO kind! I may take you up on that one day! I as well as everyone else is caught up in the "Stress"mas Holiday upon us LOL.
  5. So, its been about day (3) of some training (about 1 to 1.5 hours at a time); reading the Learning the Dynamics thread and some videos from @Marty Backe on how to mount and the "triangle method" . Currently I can barely roll/stop, roll/stop. I have been training on some thin grass at a local park and an adjacent strip of level concrete, I am starting to do much better on concrete! With all this said as I mount the wheel and try to get going forward as soon as possible, I notice almost immediately that my wheel will turn either one direction or the next and I get the wheel wobbling, I know this is part of the overall learning process but was wondering if there are any tips? Maybe foot position? Pinching the wheel with my ankles? maybe NOT pinching the wheel with my ankles? So far I am loving the experience of learning!
  6. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL I just spit out my coffee @Marty Backe I pulled this up as I just got my Ninebot E+, as soon as you did the airplane roll I said what in the WORLD???? haha However this and your other EUC mounting video did help a bit, going to try it hopefully tonight! Thanks as always.
  7. Nice, I picked up this for $8 worth a crack at it. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019DTF1MA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  8. Nice! I just picked up a red one for $8 off of Prime!! amazing!
  9. Wow, a picture IS worth a 1,000 words. Ill probably go the same then with my Ninebot One E+ surely that will do the trick. Just looking for basic parking, currently it is taking up a slot in my floor bike stand. Very very nice EUC by the way!!! Thank you again for the pics and information!
  10. Thank you! probably wont be traveling with it,.more for home, thinking of the stand you bought?
  11. @WARPed1701D @frymanIm looking for one for my ninebot one e+ do you guys think this or the other one will fit?
  12. Good morning everyone, special thanks to everyone here on the forums..especially @Marty Backe @litewave and @steve454 who have tirelessly answered all my questions and have provided information sometimes redundantly!. So, must say so far charged, foam protected, havent pumped in any air in the tire however....I have squeezed the tire with my thumbs and there is almost no give..not sure if I should check the PSI but i think on that front all is well. I just got back from about 15minutes in my parking garage, one of the first things I did after turning it on was running back upstairs and putting on my wrist guards and my helmet. Yes, even not going on anywhere I put my helmet on, I had this intuition from practicing other sports that I can really really hurt myself in the formative stages if not careful. So far I must say this is SOOO fun, takes me back to my childhood trying to learn new motor skills for a sport. I can tell I'll probably get addicted to EUCs. I started off by holding on to the top of this railing in my garage , Its about a 10ft stretch, I started off by just trying to mount the thing. I must say I favor my right side heavily, so what ive done is tipped the wheel on its side to its ride...Sorta "clamp" my foot and ankle close to the body of the EUC and try to roll it forward, meanwhile holding onto the railing and sorta "jump on". After trying this for a few times or so I was pretty succesful after about only 15minutes. I continued this and sort of moving forward and backward alongst this fence while holding on to the top rail. Some things ive noticed and need advice on, is there a good method to "ditch" the EUC? Ive favored just dumping the EUC on it's side to the right while I try to jump off..sorta pedal scrape the right pedal close to the ground then step off. Any advice on how to properly get off once you sense you're losing your balance? Ive padded up my EUC but see some battle scars already LOL so far chipped the blue off the handle holder (front of the handle) and some good pedal scrapes, I am hoping the pedals are easily replace or upgradable. Another thing ive noticed is the APP I have shows a "sensitivity" adjustment, currently I have it on 4 the app shows the lower the # the more sensitive, any ideas on what # is good for training? I figure I will be hanging onto a fence and doing this for several days, maybe several times a day. My next training session will be doing what I did today and hopefully hobbling along another fenced wall which spans about 12ft! Any and all advice as always is appreciated. Thank you guys!
  13. did you scroll down a bit? they had some cool accessories.... how do I calibrate this thing? I may be up til midnight!
