    Negative reactions from motirists

    there are two narrow sidewalks for pedestrians with kerbs and bumpy transitions. It would be easier and quicker walking whilst carrying the wheel than trying to ride the pavement. It’s a slow road. When driving in my car 20mph is plenty fast. There’s a tight bend at the bottom leading to the hill so you can’t carry any speed on your wheel. So your accelerating from about 5mph uphill. Ive not had any issues before, there have been times my speed has been restricted by the vehicle infront. It’s the guy’s reaction, revving your engine behind someone just because you want to go faster. I mean who does that. Gotway acm 84v ( non-tesla motor )
  2. I was riding my usual Saturday commute, which includes a 40 meter stretch on a narrow single track street. ( one way road, steep incline with no space to pass.) the car behind me on this particular day was driving so close behind me revving its engine trying to intimidate me. I just kept calm and continued riding up to my junction, made my turn and the guy shouts out the window something along the lines of, i shouldn’t be on the road. To say i was angry would be an understatement. Except from this one incident ive only experienced the clasic “ wanker “ hand jestures coming out car windows which i find quite funny and makes me smile. What are your negative experiences from other rode users?

    Gotway Msuper X 33MPH Crash....

    have you timed a 100m dash on your wheel to try and beat your p.b.? Id imagine crossing the line at full speed might be an issue

    What speed is safe to ride?

    Haha, i think he meant there is no safe speed. Zero mph as in you are only safe when you are not on your wheel. That was my interpretation anyway!

    What speed is safe to ride?

    I don’t wear saftey gear either and I don’t feel particularly safe about it. I wouldn’t advise anyone to do the same. Its a risk. And there are dozens of different factors to include. Know your limits, and know the limits of your wheel, and stay within them. Its a personal choice and i guess everyone has their own views and preferences. Personally, i think that if you are worried about falling off definitely cover yourself up for piece of mind. Now if i lived in a country that didn’t provide free healthcare. I couldn’t afford to take that risk and perhaps wouldn’t ride a wheel at all. (with or without saftey gear )

    What is the minimum protection you wear?

    Im going with the thinking of, the more kitted out you are with saftey gear, the more dangerous you look and the more attention you draw to yourself. No saftey gear and people may think you are just riding a gimmick toy and not a dangerous unpredictable speed machine. I know by law that I am not permitted to ride my ecu on public roads and areas, having said that I’ve passed multiple police officers on the road in cars and on the pavement on foot and not one person has stopped me. Infact ive had police cars give way to me in normal traffic situations as if I were a car. I can only speculate to the reactions if i were kitted out

    What is the minimum protection you wear?

    Two years and 600km and im ashamed to admit that ive yet to buy saftey gear. Its always been on my to do list. I’m well aware of the risk im taking, and i know it may upset some people, but kitting yourself out in body armour kind of gives off an agresive look. Especially if you are in pedestrianised areas
  9. Your wife is beautiful, and she shows an interest in the wheel... does she have any like minded single friends? Sisters?

    Thoughts as A beginner

    Couldn’t agree more. I love his style, just so cool, relaxed and loose. I no doubt look like a big stiff, awkward twat in comparison.

    I had an accident

    Emm. Respect the beeps? They are there for a reason. Im guessing it just cut out because the demand was greater than the supply. I think its normal behaviour. Like yourself ive turned off my alarms, only difference is when i hear the first beep i let off a bit.

    EUC oscillation insight

    I get the wobbles when braking from a fast speed. I think in my case its to do with my feet being too far forward on the pedals.

    Calibration angle — how do you ride?

    Yeah, but did you adjust your pedal angle to compensate for the tilt? I think that its self is the issue. So the tilt back actually levels the pedals

    Calibration angle — how do you ride?

    I believe gotway wheels are programmable this way.
