  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 pub
  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 rea
  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 kn
  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 a
  13. did you scroll down a bit? they had some cool accessories.... how do I calibrate this thing? I may be up til midnight!
  14. no worries, I saw some cool alternatives... https://www.solidrop.net/product/one-s1-s2-training-wheel-scooter-leaning-wheel-trolley-handle-pulling-rod-parking-stand-for-ninebot-one-s1-s2-a1-scooter.html Truly agree..I dont even lay my head on memory foam!! hehehe
  15. I know..truly shocked at the weight and size of this wheel. Im a pretty small guy and the first thing I said to myself when I pulled it out of the box is "ohhh I better respect this piece of machinery" lol Interesting, do you have a link by chance?
  16. this is an untapped market I tell ya! There HAS to be other options. lol
  17. wow thats quick!! Man...$70 for a handle, like...really??
  18. Interesting, looking at a trolley handle mostly because of taking it on and off the bus. I also work at a pretty big facility and have a long walk to my office. So, I plugged in the ninebot and the charger turned red...20mins ago..now its green? does that mean its fully charged?
  19. Literally just plugged in my ninebot..dammm small arrows on the charger!! super stoked! nearly crapped myself when the thing turned on and the wheel was spinning full rev! So thinking about charging it for 4hours, cut up and place my protective foam and start my journey to learn. Must say didnt know how heavy this thing is, probably going to need to buy a trolley handle, unless there is a homebrew one I can do? Thank you for the support everyone!
  20. Sometimes here in So Cal I go to play it again sports, they have helmets and other gear that im not willing to pay full dollar for. A majority of the time it is some off brand, or maybe have been used once or twice. When I took up skiing (once!) I made out like a bandit compared to retail, not sure if they have nationwide locations?
  21. Thank you! nice collection of EUC's there!
  22. oh wow, thank you soooooooooo much for all the information! I love the visual! do you have a pic of how the wheel looked when finished? I think im getting the big picture now. I am hoping the wheel does come w foam, not sure if I saw that or not?
  23. Thank you so much! I just emailed myself all these tips! Cant wait to get on the thing!! Gotta figure out how to cover the thing from dents and dings as well. Thinking old holiday sweaters!!! lol
