    Wind

    So we talk all the time about hills/surfaces/rain etc, but does anyone else find that wind is the ultimate 'kryptonite' for eucs? I guess it's obvious really, given the physics of it all. I find myself religiously checking my weather app when I'm thinking of taking my v5f to the park, for instance. Anything above 13-15mph.... I just don't bother.

    Horror Movies

    Anyone a big fan of the genre? I've always loved them but have become a bit disillusioned about the recent (last ten years or so) move to the cheap, 'jump-scare' genre. I.e. cheaply made clones that basically use quiet bits followed by sudden loud moments to illicit cheap feelings of 'fear', rather than well-developed 'dread' that more sophisticated movies from the past managed to generate. (e.g. Omen, Exorcist). Two recent ones that I've been extremely impressed with have been The Babadook and It Follows. Highly recommended.

    B & F****** Q

    Took my wheel for a spin today. I swear to God, if you're in the UK, B&Q have single handedly cheapened our hobby because of that commercial. Had half a dozen people asking -how much they are in b&q? -do b&q manufacture them? - are they really used to move stock in their warehouses? I feel like the euc has gone from 'mysterious gadget from The Orient' to 'glorified trolley while you'e picking up some new bath tiles' (For those in the USA, B&Q is like a tackier version of Home Depot) πŸ˜‚

    My Inmotion V10F Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    That's definitely a little bit of a turn-off, one of my favourite things about INmotion (and my old Lhotz) was the relative silence compared to the KS/Gotway crowd. Otherwise, it looks pretty sexy.

    B & F****** Q

    Lol who mentioned class? It was clearly a comment more about familiarity and the mundane. Don't 'look' for prejudice when there is none. πŸ™„

    Max Weight Limit

    If you're too heavy to ride these, and these things are powerful, losing weight should be the priority. Plus you get that cool added bonus of not dying young.

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    have you used both, though? The V8 handle is great, but the sheer control/manoeuvrability you get from the v5 handle is fantastic. The rubberised end is also excellent for grip when propping up in awkward corners, on walls, etc

    Advice on first wheel

    I don't wear a helmet myself, I consider by far the most important safety purchase to be a really good pair of combo wrist guards/gloves. Unlike a bike where you're holding onto something, chances are if the worst should happen ground-zero on impact is going to be your hands/wrists. The important thing is they have genuine 'shock' protection, not just wrist supports. I use 'Triple 8 Hired Hands' - you can get them on Amazon. They're gloves too. If you go for those just make sure you get a size smaller than normal as their sizes are weirdly big. K2 are another good brand. But as I said, just make sure they have that u-shaped shock splint on the palms as shown below. Otherwise they won't be much good in a fall.

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    excellent that they went for the v5 handle over an integrated job.

    Advice on first wheel

    Congrats! Other than whatever safety gear you choose to use, the most important thing for you to get now (if you don't already have one) is a decent track pump with a psi gauge. Can get one for less than Β£20 on amazon for example. As I'm sure you'll read countless times on here, tire pressure can radically affect your ride, ESP when you're starting out. Make sure it's one with the correct 'schrader' nozzle option. Enjoy! Come down to London sometime.

    Hello everyone, was wondering if it’s worth

    Wait, what? Gas station?! Doesn't everyone just use a cheap track pump?

    KS14s owners

    How many of you guys are there on here? What are your medium/long term opinions on the wheel? I could be going crazy but I almost feel there is a weird under-representation of owners of the 14s on the forum - but it's a wheel that I think is by a comfortable margin the most attractive proposition right now, until these next-gen beasts arrive. Plenty of 14d/16 owners around here though. What say you, sirs? And how much happier are you after that firmware update?

    Legalising EUCs in the UK, the next steps

    I think @Jason McNeilhimself once had a run-in with Boris Johnson on his EUC... ....obviously we have a different mayor now but I think Jason said he was very intrigued.

    That' the same year Airwheel releases an euc that breaks 20kph 😏

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    True, that's not coming till 2022:
  18. Sweet!.....if true that suddenly makes the 14d a more attractive purchase over the 14s, I would've thought. (Taking into account price/weight/all other differences etc.)

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    I guess the two biggest ones would be: 1) Weight and dimensions? 2) any new riding modes/calibration-type features?

    Will be in Paris end of May for a combo Roland Garros/EUC trip. Let me know if anyone will be around ??

    Advice on first wheel

    Yeah you get a surprising few from the UK. And Europe - surprisingly cheap to ship. The main place to keep an eye out would indeed be this forum but also probably worth joining the 'official London electric unicycle' group on facebook (if you use facebook). They occasionally have people put up sale posts. πŸ‘ Speedyfeet also sell 2nd hand wheels too. You can either visit their website or facebook site.

    Advice on first wheel

    Ah sorry, didn't see the 'S'! You might be better off looking in the 2nd hand market. Not only because of budgetary reasons but also because: If this is your first wheel, AND your priority is off-road.......that combination means your new toy is going to be getting roughed up VERY quickly.
