  1. Normally that'd be us too, weather's been a bit freaky this year. We expect to get back up to normal on Thursday.
  2. A bit of the winter trail riding from this morning.
  3. Did someone say snow? Normally we're at +8c at this time of year but Mother Nature decided to drop a curveball on us. I used to be a decent skier, today was pretty much like having a groomed run down on a decent mountain slope.
  4. That's a pretty crazy tire you have on there.
  5. In my city this is an *awesome* time to get comfortable with riding on the streets with traffic... because there is very little traffic these days, even in rush hour. I'm eschewing the bike lanes in favor of normally-busy streets for all my ride time now. Absolutely no reason to be riding on any sidewalks while the quarantine is going on. Also, walking around is about the only activity people have right now, there are a few more pedestrians than usual in the residential areas.
  6. Electric unicycles are definitely far safer than OneWheels.
  7. We'll know soon enough, I plan to be riding this thing a *lot*.
  8. Before doing that one might want to think about exactly what is it about the one-thread approach that draws more interest. I'm guessing a lot of people are interested in seeing whatever random videos pop up the thread, regardless of content. Having to jump into five different threads to see five new videos added since a last visit is drudgery. Also, one gets notifications that something has been added to the video thread. You don't get a notification if the video is put into a new thread. The video section seems like it is the most popular aspect of this site. As Elmer Fudd might say, be vewy vewy careful before blowing it up.
  9. Well that's a downer. Much appreciated, but damn. 155lbs isn't a good default limit for wheels sold in N.A. The marketing says they're good to 220lbs, but it seems like the tire isn't good for anywhere near that.
  10. It seems like the long video thread is where you have to post videos if you want anyone to see them.
  11. I have no patience at all. Ordered on ewheels this morning and paid for max shipping speed. I've been wanting to try one of these for months.
  12. My next wheel will be... an MTen3. I love the big wheels and the long trips and that continues, but this year I want really want to thoroughly test the idea of this little wheel being a great last-mile option in our spread-out city. We have transit everywhere, but most people have a bit of a walk to get to the nearest transit point. Plus I really want to be carrying a wheel in a back pack to events and (hopefully) show civilians around here that wheels are really pedestrian friendly. And finally, I think more people around here might take the plunge if they see that a fun little wheel can be had for much, much less than the cost of a big wheel. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure going to feel a bit silly riding such a cute little wheel around.
  13. Okay, I'll try to work something up. We should have enough ice around still to make this happen.
