  1. Party pooper...although I hear ya regarding the Chinese quality reputation, but I do own plenty of quality products from China. With as long as they've been talking about it I think it'll be well tested, refined, and polished before we see it. From my perspective at least, it'll be a new experience in riding. Will probably have to alter riding style to master, like the Z10. And btw, the suspension on my Kingsong N1-D scooter kicks ass!
  2. All speculation until we get to try it out. I'm fairly certain it'll (suspension) be something new to acclimate and adjust riding style to. Like the Z10 came out and you had to "re-learn" riding due to it's unique characteristics. I think it's great to "unlock" a new skill which pushes us to learn and improve. They've been talking about this for a long while, and I'm certain that behind the scenes lots of testing is and has 🐝n taking place to really give us all something special, unique and new to look forward to in our niche. Let's wait and see, but I think they're going to nail this one outta the park. Excited for this Oh, and to your point, I believe Inmotion should equip it with a hardware lock feature like on some full suspension mt bikes. You can lock the suspension for stiffer climbing. Then you'd have best of both worlds. 👽💜😎👊
  3. That is the ultimate Sam Diego tour/ride for sure. Wish I could join... Probably won't rode for at least a couple of weeks. Darth Backe should totally join in!
  4. Thanks Hunka! And yeah, I blame the Drum and Bass in the cans. Makes me ride more aggressively...LoL 😜
  5. That Demon Flexforce X2 looks badass! Wonder if it would have helped me out last week when I crashed at around 30mph. I was transitioning into the bike lane from the street and low and behold, there was a 3 inch lip where the street had sunk below its normal level. I merged into the bike lane, wheel was close to parallel to the lip, and it stopped and I went down on my shoulder hard and way too fast to react in any way. Soon as I hit I knew I was badly injured. I have been wearing this, https://www.amazon.com/Webetop-Adults-Chest-Protector-Skiing/dp/B078NLHHG2/ref=mp_s_a_1_1_sspa?keywords=webetop+armor&qid=1574295972&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExRzZKTEZTTUVIQ1YzJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMDUwODI2MlFWSktVTVNMR1c2UiZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMzIwMDk5UzlUOEdLWkk1U05ZJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfcGhvbmVfc2VhcmNoX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU= and although it has shoulder pads, it did nothing to help keep me from serious injury. Thanks @Darrell WeshWesh for the Demon Flexforce X2 idea. I've been looking into stepping up my torso protection, so looking for other suggestions. There's a Leatt one I've been eyeballing for around $250. It's super bulky, but after this injury and my love for fast cruising, maybe I'll just go full on football shoulder pads... LoL. I'll look through the rest of these posts, but if anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears for protecting the shoulder areas. Seems most of the high speed crashes end up with a Superman slide (ideally), but my crash left zero time to do much else than wonder what the hell I hit. Full face helmet saved my life, as head hit hard too and was seeing stars even with a motorcycle helmet. And btw, this happened a week and a half ago and I still feel like I was punched in the heart by the Hulk. Broken clavicle, scapula and rib...no fun at all. I'll heal but supposed to be a long healing process. I'm jonesing to ride, and have always worn full gear, but def gonna step up the shoulder protection...
  6. Had to do one to join the monkey suit club...
  7. Awesome footage and recap of the LA EUC Games by 👽 Rides...
  8. All great ideas, and all in the original plans. With very little budget, less volunteers showing up than planned, people miraculously appearing last minute to help with the livestreaming, cameras, some things went overlooked. Planned on commentator, but I don't think anyone else could have done this first round other than myself. It was a huge undertaking, all while supporting a family and having about a week to do all the last minute stuff, I think it was a huge success. It was a true community effort and we did the best we could, riders included. This was no easy course, nor did I want it to be. Looking forward to the next and yes I share your sentiments and with any luck, our great footage will be the springboard for attaining all of the goals come next year. Thanks again to all involved and to the community as a whole because I didn't do this, my family didn't do this....we ALL did it together. Oh and that Olympic flyer was not supposed to get used. 😬 The livestreaming guys found it on my computer and used it during breaks.
  9. @Rehab1 we're these all stills from the livestream? Thx man!
  10. Hey guys. Just a quick reminder to registered competitors, please if you haven't already, pay the $20 eventbrite registration fee. I'm spending a lot out of pocket for everything and need to get that fee from all registered riders. Thank you all so much and let's have an awesome and safe and fun inaugural LA EUC Games on Saturday!
  11. Join in the fun on the eve of the LA EUC Games. Meet at 3:30pm on Friday October 25th. We'll start at the skate park in Noho with jaws agape watching @Sidestreet Reny rule the turf, making us all want to drop out of the Freestyle event...😂 We'll sesh there for a bit, and then head out towards the Sepulveda Dam area around 4:15 for a concrete surfing session there on the actual dam! Plus a surprise you won't want to miss. Soooo fun! This ride starts on street bike lanes for a couple miles, then it's all bike paths until we get out to the Dam area. Out there, there's a bit of off-road opportunities, and amazing winding sidewalk bike paths around lakes, and under bridges. Fun and speedy route! It's around 9 miles out and 9 back, and we'll probably do at least 10 to 15 miles of riding around the parks and a lot of it is higher speed riding (if you like), so plan on a 1600wh wheel to ensure you'll hold enough charge for re-entry into North Hollywood, where we'll get back and tuck ourselves in early and be (fairly) well rested for the Games next day... Wheels with lesser battery can do most of the ride, and would be an easy Uber back, so please don't be discouraged to show up for this ride if you have a smaller battery wheel. Also, bring a trick wheel to ride at the skate park, then toss it in yer trunk and grab your long range uni-bots to roll out... *Our LAESK8 family of 2 or 4 wheeled friends are invited to join in the fun on this one too! 😎👽💜👊 Actual parking lot address for the Noho skate park (free) parking lot... 11455 W Magnolia Blvd Parking 11455 W Magnolia Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 91601 https://maps.app.goo.gl/c4ZaiAZG2P51tYcb9 https://www.facebook.com/events/380136792898583/?ti=cl ~image by Rehab 1 of the EUC forums~
  12. Volunteers for LA EUC Games please check your emails for details. Also check your spam folders if not in your inboxes...Thank you to all involved!
  13. Thank you EUCO.us and @Jeffrey Scott Will for the awesome prize packages for the EUC Games winners and for this video feature! 😁💜👽😎
