  1. Shoes,.... i mainly use the cheapest vans off the wall runners. IMO, nothing i have tried matches their rubber sole. Nikes are much more comfortable and more cushioned, but nike doesnt have the classic vans rubber sole. For winter riding i use columbia boots. Keeps me feet warm.
  2. i like your adaptive approach. nice to be young, im jealous already !!!! have a great and safe riding season 2021 as well !!! oh yes, i do go camping, and with the same gear too !!! (plus the added tent and wife) bp
  3. not trying to impress anyone. again, its always "you get what you pay for", especially in the lighting and safety gear. if you want the best night time lighting, outfit yourself with the best lights you can afford. if you want comfort (im now 63 years old), add a chair. at my age, i deserve to sit down once in a while. it all packs nicely, and not too weird looking at that. mind you, the flashing knog lights do make one look abit like a jet plane at night, but better to be seen than not seen. thanx for the feed back and have a great and safe riding season for 2021 too !!!
  4. y'all; If there is already a thread for this, please feel to move this topic to that respective thread. to start things off, i will list my stuff that i currently wear and carry with me on most rides. it amounts to about 10-12 lbs and its not that heavy at all. - i use a hockey helmet. i see the frowns already. yes, its not as 'safe' as a dedicated bicycle helmet (motocross style) or as safe as a motorcycle helmet (such as a nice shoei) but my choice for the hockey helmet was keeping my ability to hear all around me during my ride. the helmet is good enough for my use, and
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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

    Age poll

    theres quite abit of truth in your posting !!!
  14. 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
