  1. The mirror mounting creates no problems for me. The mirror is the weakest link on my helmet and it does not stay in the way of the view in the direction of traveling. It is mounted so that it does not damage the face in the event of an accident. It does not give any air resistance at the speeds you can reach with a Kingsong EUC. If you want to get it tested with the faster GotWay, then you have to send one to me. I crashed last summer with a similar mounting and that time the mirror was bent behind the helmet and caused no damage to my head at all. Safety first!
  2. I think I can handle it. The mirror weighs only 75 grams (2.65 oz).
  3. Today I have bought a new helmet and mounted a huge bike mirror on it. The whole design works perfectly and I have a good view of what's going on behind me. The assembly weighs 1100 grams in total. Airoh helmet: https://www.airoh.com/helmets/terminator-open-vision-en/ Zefal mirror: http://www.zefal.com/en/mirrors/368-espion-z56.html
  4. Morjens, Olen ollut yhteydessä Schwalbe rengastehtaan edustajan kanssa koskien Mad Miken nastoitusta ynnä muuta talviajoon liittyviä kysymyksiä. Heidän viesti oli, että ainoastaan niitä malleja jotka on saatavilla tehtaalta nastoitettuina voi myös jälkikäteen nastoittaa irtonastoilla. Kaikki mallit joita ei nastoiteta tehtaalla EI SAA nastoittaa irtonastoilla. Renkaan kumiseos ja renkaan rakenne ei kestä nastoitusta ja voi olla vaarallinen käyttää jos siihen kiinnittää nastoja. Olen kokeillut Mad Mike talvikelissä ja se toimii varsin hyvin ilman nastoja. Terveiset Kotkasta ja ajakaa turvallisesti talven aikana!
  5. It is difficult to recommend the correct tire pressure for electric wheels. You have to try which one suits your driving style best. The hardness of the tires also varies between different brands. For heavy pressure can also damage the body of the tire or shorten the service life. Too low pressure can enhance the feeling of instability when riding with your wheel. One thing I can recommend you: check the pressure at least once a week. Then the surfaces are worn evenly and the service life will be extended. On my KingSong 16C I got 4500 km (2796 mi) before it was time to change (tire: Schwalbe Mad Mike).
  6. Hei, Oman pyörän kestävyys on mahdollista saada selville vain ajamalla. Korkeakouluopiskelujeni aikana olin mukana monissa tuotetestaushankkeissa. Testaukset tehtiin pääosin laboratorio-olosuhteissa olemassa olevien standardien mukaan. Mikäli standardia ei ollut olemassa kyseiselle tuotteelle, määräsi valmistaja suurimman osan testausmenetelmistä. Yhteistä kaikissa projekteissa oli, että tuotetestaukset ei koskaan vastanneet kuluttajan käyttökokemuksia. Ainut hyvä piirre tässä on, että saadaan aikaan testimenetelmä, joka on sitten sama kaikille valmistajille. Väittäisin että ei ole tällä hetkellä yhtään tuotetta, joka täyttää kaikki "lupaukset". Ihme kyllä minun KingSong 16C kulkee yhdellä latauksella luvatun 70 km. Ajan aina täysillä ja hyvin vaihtelevassa maastossa. Pyöräni laatu on muuten täyttä sekundaa ja kuoret pysyy paikoillaan teipillä. KingSongin appi ei vieläkään toimi kännykässäni. Seuraava pyörä ei tule olemaan KingSong ja jos verrataan hinta- ja laatusuhdetta, niin yleensä näillä laitteilla hintataso on liioiteltu. t. Carl

    Okay my EUC friends! Today, my first video was published on YouTube. All my videos during the year will include topics on electric unicycles. In my next video, advice is given on how photographers can make their professional or hobby business greener by traveling with EUC. Subscribe to my channel today! PS. Tips and good advice from all of you will be taken with gratitude!
  8. Yesterday when I was riding with my KingSong 16c, a police car followed me about three kilometers. Why? This week, the police have controlled vehicle speeds and it looked as the police patrol that followed me saw an electric unicycle for the first time. They could not and had no reason to stop me because my unicycle gives its first beep at 25 kph which is the maximum allowed speed for EUC here in Finland. Take it easy out there in the big world so no one has any cause to make complaints about you!

    Hi I've now started a new channel on YouTube about photography, videography and of course a lot of electric unicycle contents: The first "long" video will be published in the beginning of April. Pleace subscribe and press the bell icon and you will not miss anything. See you on YouTube! I really really look forward to meet you there! Carl "dismason"

    Hi, Here is a useful video that I found to have a good practical value when editing Insta360 footage with Premiere Pro:
  11. A little update from me here in in the snowy Finland. My new video channel starts from the 1st of April this year (the link to the channel shall be published that day). My GoPro equipment had so much technical problems that I simply couldn't get good quality videos out of them. So the seller took the whole GoPro package back and it has now been replaced with another brand. I have founded a 500px image portfolio that holds high-resolution photographs from my EUC adventures, you find it here: https://500px.com/dismason/galleries/electric-unicycle My blog will also be updated with more EUC stuff. The first article was released yesterday and I hope you like it :-) https://dismason.org/2019/03/04/greener-photos-2019/ See you again soon Carl
  12. Hi, Thanks for asking!! Unfortunately, I have never ride an Inmotion (but I hope for the opportunity) so my wishes rely on over three thousand kilometers experience of driving with an another brand during the summer: THE SHELL. I like simple and funtional designs and instead of a complicated light play on the sides of the shell, I would prefer two headlamps forwards. One LED light with less power for riding in the city and the other LED light as a remote light, strong enough for an safe traveling in the countryside or offroad. Weather Resistant. In fact, it may start to rain or snow when we are outdoors. You can not always count on the weather forecast, not even for the next hour. It would also be good with a second port to load the wheel in the car as well. Then it would be possible to charge the wheel if we want to travel long distances in areas where there is not possible to find a place for "normal" charging. THE WHEEL. I wish a tire of such a dimension that it would be easier for us to find new tires when it's time to replace it with a new one. It also needs to be of such a size that you can purchase a stud tire for winter time riding. 18'' - 20''. CAPACITY. Many countries have regulated the maximum speed of this type of vehicle at 20-25 km / h, so it does not have to be a Formula1 EUC. As insured, the maximum speed in many countries is 30-50 km / h. Personally, I wish that it would be possible to ride at these speeds at least 90 km / charge. Regards Carl
  13. If I use a tyre of thicker and steady rubber material, I use the minimum pressure recommended by the manufacturer. If the tyre is manufactured in Europe, the side walls are very thin and the tyre may collapse in sharp maneuvers at high speed, if low pressure is used. So in my current "Schwalbe Mad Mike" tyre I use the recommended maximum pressure. It has worked so well that I have ordered a new one that will be assembled when the first snow comes.
  14. The problem with the youth today is that they look so old (older people look so young (especially if they are riding an EUC)). But I think they were aged between 16-18 years. So I did not take the helmet off me, in that case they would be scared and say: Oh no, it's someone's grandfather!
  15. I was riding to my destination, the Museum of Maritime History in the city of Kotka Finland. Then I saw two athletic youngsters who showed up their skate board tricks to a group of young girls. The boys had naked upper bodies and I had all my safety gears on me + an fullface helmet. So I stopped for a couple of seconds beside them and did some quick pirouettes to both right and left with my KingSong. The girls started screaming "look at that guy, look at that guy, he looks really cool!" The athletes looked at each other and one of them said "Oh no! I've had enough, let's go home!"
