  1. aside from the LEMFO LEMT which has been used by at least 1 user on this forum, i see there are much cheaper alternatives such as the maxwest nitro 4 cell phone at 75$ CAD. its specs are the following: - Android OS v5.1 (Lollipop) - Bluetooth, version v3.0 it is also wifi capable and has a 4 inch screen. pretty much abit bigger than the LEMFO, but way less expensive... can the author of Euc World confirm if this cell phone will be useable with euc world and a wheel, using bluetooth version v3.0 ? thank you. bpong
  2. can anyone answer this following question: does euc world work with this device ? https://www.chinesesmartwatches.com/lemfo-lem-t-4g-smartwatch/ i would prefer a reply from seba since he is most familiar with euc world. thank you for your help. bpong
  3. winter is just around the corner. so its time i put my wheels up for the winter time hibernation, and wait till next spring 2020. been a good year, (only a couple of falls, good falls - no broken anything...) and i got a faster wheel. had some very good interactions with most cyclists, and i only had 1 BAD experience with 1 taxi driver (and i did not have an action camera at that time...) very thankful that this vocation exists, and is supported by alot of users and retailers. i hope that for the next year 2020 riding season, we see more organized regulations on euc us
  4. the problem is that the city of toronto uses SALT on the city streets during the winter months. and salt is an enemy of aluminum and aluminum alloys... damn... i still have my glide 3 to ride but still, i only ride it when its dry and cold, so that the least amount of salt and salt-water gets into the wheel well. so when im not riding, im walking. the walking is fine, i need the xtra exercise (5 miles total, to and from work)... once early spring hits, and the spring rain washes the salt away, it will be riding season once again.... YEE HAA !!!! have a great holiday sea
  5. y'all; just looking for confirmation that this is the proper storage method to follow: - i have discharged my tesla V2 down to 50% (as i have gathered from prev postings on this site) - this will allow my wheel to be stored without affecting the battery's charging capacity. the storage space is 'heated' but the temperature range is basically from 5 degrees Celsius (41 degrees Fahrenheit) to 15 degrees Celsius (60 degrees Fahrenheit). the storage period is from end of november to early april. the euc is brand new, only ridden a few hundred feet to test unit - its all
  6. y'all; is there anyone out there in euc land that is familiar with the charging port of the gotway tesla, orig or V2 ? i would like to reuse my ewheels 84V charger (used on my glide3) for charging my tesla V2. the glide3 uses a 12mm gxplug, the tesla, a 16mm gxplug. that is not the prob. the problem is that i dont know which pins the ground and power wire use in the charging port of the tesla. if anyone is familiar with the wiring and connections of the charging port for the tesla, please provide the pin-in information along with polarity. thanx ! bpong
  7. just shrug it off and carry on. in my own experience with cyclists in toronto, i found 99.9% are just regular folks. there are only a few of them (mostly retired, decked out in their own racing world garb, and carrying on as if they own the cycle path) that are ignorant. looks like you came across one who is not afraid to get interactive. thats fine. next person he attacks, he will probably be surprised (and if its america...) to find that not every one will back down. what i find is that given that quite a few states in america allow conceal or no conceal carry of firearms, why the
  8. thanx to all who posted. i went with the tesla V2. its one of the lightest of the performance wheels, and it has the features that im used to in the glide 3. happy riding for the approaching summer season 2020 to all !!! bp

    theres quite abit of truth in your posting !!!
  10. y'all; are these two links referring to the same model, but different cosmetics ??? https://www.smartwheel.ca/Gotway-XXX-16”-1020Wh-1900W-Electric-Unicycle_p_1863.html https://www.vaneuc.com/webstore/en/home/58-gotway-tesla-1020-v2.html and to top it off, one price is 350$ more than the other. i guess times are tough these days... i would think the 'XXX' is a tesla with slightly different body panels... thanx in advance, bpong
  11. y'all; been riding a glide3 for the past 2 seasons. i love this machine and its been 100% reliable. judging by quite a few remarks about the v8/glide3, i will be keeping it. the only thing i would like to do is get another euc that is abit faster, and has abit more range. this machine will be used for riding provincial park roads and trails, and for longer commutes and city explorations. i did have my eye on the kingsong 16 inch wheels, but then the tesla V2 caught my eye as well. what attracted me to the tesla V2 is that the integrated carry handle with the trolley
  12. here is my solution to using an action cam while riding my euc. since i wear my backpack all the time while euc riding, i chose to get a strap mount for my action cam. btw, the action cam i chose is the dji osmo action cam. my reason for choosing this cam is that it is cheaper than the high end gopro, and it comes with 2 mounts, 1 flat and 1 helmet mount. back to the strap mount. i saw quite a few strap mounts on amazon but the reviews were always lukewarm cause there were a few instances were the mount accidentally released the attached camera (DSLR though). i ch
  13. i was walking with my glide3 in kensington market in toronto, sept 21, 2019, on my way to check out a latin grocery store. it was very crowded so i chose not to ride so i would avoid an un-necessary collision with pedestrians. i was stopped by an older man who basically asked me about my glide 3. he also indicated to me that he rides the V10 euc. we had a short discussion during which he also said he is 82 years old and still riding.... !!! IMO, thats pretty damn old to still be able to ride one of these contraptions !!! i urged him to join electric unicycle forum, a
  14. wheelr; i was stupid in the following respects: - no action camera (i have one now, osmo action cam, and use it on my helmet) - i reacted too emotionally and did not take down any information such as taxi number, license plate, UGH !!!!!!!!!!!!!! so, next time and there will be a next time im sure, i will have video footage, and i will try my best to get the important information. after that is done though, then perhaps i will have some time to throw in a few profanities.....perhaps.... y'all have a great riding season too !!!! ours is winding down since fall
