    Ninebot One E+'s auctioned on Ebay -- any good?

    Just a follow up for anyone that might be interested. At first, this E+ wheel was a fantastic deal. The app attached immediately to it and updated the firmware with no trouble. My son rode it for several weekends while we explored the local trails and it worked flawlessly -- until we experienced a sudden cut-off. No beeps -- just cut-off. The battery was about 50% and he was going really slow over some bark mulch. It wouldn't power up until I connected the AC charger. It then worked great so we just presumed it was a fluke or that he was over leaning while going over the bark mulch and didn't hear the warning beeps. However, it did the exact same thing the next weekend and this was over pavement, about 14 mph, so he got a little bruised up. Again, it was around 50% left on the battery but at least it powered right back up (no need to connect the AC charger). We'd been riding constantly for about an hour so I'm guessing it might be heat related (both days, it was about 60 F). So now, he doesn't trust it and now we're shopping for a replacement.

    Hey @Jonesq! It was actually too cold and windy to ride so we just tried out all of @Michael Vu's wheels. It was awesome getting the chance to try them all out plus meet each other. We've got much better ideas on which we want next. Thanks, Michael!

    Hey @Michael Vu! Dan and I will absolutely be there on Saturday (I don't think we can make it downtown of a Friday night). Our wheels are only 320 Wh, so definately not distance runners, but we'd love to take a look at your other wheels! Dan is really itching to try an adult wheel.

    Hi @67SS, Well, rats. I just now saw your message. Sorry! The meetup was at 10:00 this morning but I hear the group rides every month. This group is actually the OneWheel DFW facebook group but I saw EUCs riding with them as well. You can join their facebook page. They'll post the time/place for the next ride.

    Hey @sascha4rmdallas! There are actually some of us here in Dallas that ride. In fact there's a meetup tomorrow morning at Valley Ranch, if you're interested. I learned about it from @Michael Vu. He's encouraging every rider in Dallas to come on over. It's hilarious to hear that you've got an Osdrich wheel -- that's my first wheel that I learned to ride on, but it's hardly unheard of. I bought mine used and I'll bet your's is the other one that they guy was selling (is it green?). It's actually not a bad wheel at all, for the price, and great to learn on. The battery isn't hard to replace, although it may be challenging to find a replacement. Your KS is a much more mainstream wheel so getting a replacement battery for it should be a whole lot easier. Great source for wheels and parts is ewheels.com. I'll bet they have your battery there. My son and I have been riding a lot of the trails around Dallas and there are some actually pretty good ones. We did do the White Rock lake trails a few weeks ago (and froze our asses off), but those are nice trials as well. Later!

    What's next for InMotion EUC? You tell me

    These are GREAT suggestions!

    Unicycle storage (holder, dock etc)

    Thanks, @Seba. Yep, I've seen these. Rats. I was hoping this was a commercial product. Where'd you get the regulator and display parts? (kit or did you design/build the circuitry yourself?)

    Unicycle storage (holder, dock etc)

    Wow! You definitely win the prize for the most impressive docking station. What charger are you using in this?
  11. I noticed that my wheel seems to land on the trolley handle every time (it's like a pavement magnet). So I wrapped it in this automotive protective tape.

    What's next for InMotion EUC? You tell me

    Yeah, @Simone Malicius, I hear ya about the app (at least on Android). It crashes a lot, I've yet to get their own sounds to download to the V5F, and a lot of the screens are still in Chinese even though I selected English as my language. Really? You guys couldn't even get language support right?

    Well, nothing really impressive. I picked up one of the Ninebot One E+'s that being dumped on Ebay for my son. Got it for $240. Nothing fancy but a good enough wheel for someone still learning.

    Rats. Can't make it. Work conflict. But will make it to the Feb CM.

    I'm really going to try to make it, too. Have a new wheel coming in on Friday so I hope it gets here in time.
