  1. Hey mate, cheers for the reply. Looks like you were right, although I didn't need to disconnect anything. Left it plugged in overnight and by morning it was charging normally. Happy days! Kevin, sorry mate I can't reply via fb, the overlords deemed me inappropriate and banned me. 😂

    Dead Z10?

    Hey Team, So got back from holiday after leaving the wheel 2 weeks and now it wont turn on. Nothing comes up at all on the LED screen when pressing or holding the button down. Plugging the charger in does nothing either, just cycles red/green on the charger and get a brief batt display on the LCD before it flashes off again. Dont think i left it at a really low charge before i left, but am wondering what the usual dead battery present as and if thats my issue or something more.. problematic. Any suggestions/solutions? Sucks not having my wheel! Cheers, Alex
  3. I dont understand what you are saying then tbh.

  5. I disagree with this assessment, after 1000 miles in mine now every turn is j initiated and completed with body weight. I never, ever push the wheel over with my legs.
  6. At speed for aggressive turning you definitely have to throw your body into it to lean the wheel over. i am more curious how many do this with their leg pressing against the wheel or their foot applying weight to the pedal?
  7. Cool video, i do a similar thing to get tight circles when needed
  8. Group ride on the weekend in Auckland, New Zealand. Awesome turnout with 10 EUC riders, 4 boarders and 2 on scooters. Great to meet Mrs TFU and TFU also!
  9. Nah, wont be $20k.. Note: This is the new unicycle from GotWay, and it's no on sale now, and the price isn't the final price,we will change the price once the item on sale. They may charge you $40k instead...
  10. What @houseofjob said x 10. Wide stance so you can suppinate your feet on the outside edges of the pedals. I dont do the pigeon foot thing (toes in, heels out) cos i cant get used to it, instead im more parallel or slightly toe out. My legs never touch the sides of the unit, i use weight position to complete all my turns, never pushing it over with my leg. Hips and Shoulders lead every turn i complete. Because my feet hang off the sides i scrape them before i scrape pedals, its a nice little warning before i get into a position i could catch a pedal on the ground.
  11. The only negative vibes ive gotten from people were from Cyclists, and they wear Lycra so....
  12. Im curious to learn how long it took to teach some extras, or if they were EUC riders beforehand...
  13. Your still cool, pigeon footed or not No seriously though, that kid you and Tishawn ride past in one of the first z10 videos.. His jaw was on the ground. He thought it was cool. Infact, ive never met a kid or teenager, or cool dude (cool people can tell who else is cool naturally) who sent out an y negative vibes. All have been positive, many want to chat, girls want to make out so much its becoming a problem in my marriage, and im pretty sure there are 3 or 4 official fan clubs on facebook about the cool guy on the Wheel in town. edit: forgot the emojis!
  14. All you talking about how uncool you are might need to consider its just you.. Im super frickin cool, always have been. The kids say im Chill AF which im lead to believe is a good thing.. Real talk.. I think its just most of you are riding uncool wheels, you need to get the z10, its super cool, after all, its what i ride.. And the kids, they love it, LOVE IT always want to know what it is and chase after me like a diabetic chasing insulin . The esk8rs i ride with... they have seen that before, its meh now . Cool is a state of mind, and a z10. Get yours now! (emois help too) The video they made with the Braille skate guys was fucking awesome, watched it so many times now!
  15. From a need for speed. It is my commuter, but realistically i could commute on anything. The reality is I bought a $3k unicycle to go fast on
  16. What will be the top speed for the Mini with the hacked firmware? 28kph? I got sick of waiting so bought a z10 instead, now the MiniPro gathers dust as its just a kids toy in comparison, but for $50 i might be tempted to make it go faster for when someone wants to have a play around.. Bit expensive for modified firmware though if im honest...
  17. Took the long way from work back to the ferry today.
  18. So I will be in Oakland I have no idea if that is close to anywhere but figure I can Uber if need be. Would be super keen to go on a group ride, that would be amazing if timings worked out. Happy to pay euc rental fees etc. Seeing the area with a few locals sounds epic. Thank your everyone!
  19. Sorry, im not sure where they are now living, i just know it is San Fran in the Bay Area. I will ask for the exact locale
  20. Kiaora Team, Just wondering if any locals can give me some pointers. I have a little over a week in San Fran next may where i will be staying with some friends down in the Bay area. They will be working and my wife will be shopping and i will be looking for trouble while i am bored.. What options are there for renting PEVs or something to get around? I ride a EUC but guessing there is little opportunity to rent one out just yet. Lime scooters dont interest me in the slightest (slightly repelled even). If by some miracle i get my hands on something decent where is good to check out? I loved telegraph street last time i was there and the Berkeley area was pretty chill, but everything was seen by car or with shopping bags in hand and thats just not the right way to experience things. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Cheers mates,
  21. Will do mate, im out of town for a few days for NY at Omaha, going to take the wheels with me and see if i cant get a ride or two in, but when im back i will tee something up for real
  22. Keen as a bean! There were only 4 of us this ride, me and 3 skaters. Was good fun but they ran out of steak while i was still at 75% battery.. Ended up dropping them off and going for another run by myself, covered 35km in the end around Auckland City.
  23. Yeah, at first they thought broken ACL, then they thought crushed MCL, then i had an MRI and it came back fractured through one of the knuckley knee bits on the lower leg bone, but all the ligaments still there.. And as the bone hasnt moved and i can use it the doc said im good to go.. Wife was sceptical, as i still limp like a gimp but i was quietly chuffed not to have to go through the whole cast and crutches thing. I have been filming a lot, but my broom handle selfie stick leaves a bit to be desired so im leaving it at home this time
  24. Hey Team, Just wanted to drop by and say thank you to everyone for all their help, words of wisdom, arguments that i thoroughly enjoy, tips, tricks, jokes and banter. Every bit of it has been instrumental in my journey from shitty Segway MiniPro to EUC over the last couple of months. To the point i am comfortable enough on my z10 now i feel am able to hang with the group rides in the city! So on that note i just organised one for this afternoon! Pretty excited tbh.. It was a harder learning experience than i expected, no one told me i would break my leg (literally) and then have to learn with a mad limp, but i feel stoked to have pushed through the injury and now be riding like i always wanted. And even more stoked to be told by the doctor last week i dont need a cast, seeing as it hasn't moved any in the last month of use without one anyway. No summer cast for me!!!! Yipeee! Shout out especially all those who have talked to me over the time ive been here, i could list all who i have gleaned valuable knowledge from but i would miss many so i wont. Im off to catch a ferry into the city hen try blow away some Electric Skateboarders (not many EUCs here sadly, think i will be the only one today) Merry Christmas and if your looking for a special Xmas song from this side of the world, may i suggest you look up Kevin Bloody Wilson (ok, hes Australian but still). Enjoy! Alex.
