    I'm older than I care to admit. I've been an athlete all my life. I thought it would be a piece of cake to ride one of these things since these types of things come easy to me. Took me a week to learn. Was very frustrating. Turned out my wheel had low tire pressure that made it difficult. Once I got the tire pressure up, it was a piece of cake. Still took 4 months before I was very comfortable. Lots of fun, you will enjoy learning and the sense of flying.
  2. Program computers for major internet company.
  3. My theory: Kuji had a low budget street tire that was unbalanced, causing wobbles at high speed. Just the tube not fitting well inside can cause this. I wouldn't be surprised if someone does a video with an ewheels street tire and says there is less wobbles than with the off road tire.
  4. Spoiler: knobby tire wins because street tire has wobbles at high speed.
  5. EUC is much more fun because: Faster Position: feels like a magic carpet ride, facing forward Don't feel little bumps. Don't have to worry about small obstacles like stones.
  6. Thanks Chriull for that tip. Here is a clickable link: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-e&q=site%3Aforum.electricunicycle.org+intelligent+walking+store Summary: there are bad reports and good reports. My general feeling about aliexpress. Aliexpress has been very good at giving me refunds when I have an issue, even though it is sometimes a couple months after requesting shipment.
  7. Not there that many people that are suicidal. I wonder what is required for an EUC to be allowed on a freeway.
  8. Take a look at one of the spreadsheets and sort it by weight. Your not going to like the compromise too much of having to get a small wheel to climb 3 flights of stairs. Example spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1T9GZJGJf9V24WRLqzVIyXuIeax2mu3fG5fXzHchPMwk/edit#gid=0 Created a new column: tire size / weight. See if any stand out (column F): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1E8F93M2-KalHOInlDG6_P2fozy-Tt_1v95FT_Oz4Ajo
  9. Bend down very low, then jump up fast. The momentum is what carries the EUC up into the air. Tesla V2 is heavy at 42 lbs. How much do you weigh? Try jumping without an EUC. Do you have decent vertical leap?
  10. Perhaps the increased gyroscopic effect plays a big role too.
  11. +1. I had an inMotion V8 16 inch, and my KingSong 18L felt so much smoother to ride. Doesn't make logical sense to me why 2 inches would make such a big difference.
  12. 72 lbs, wow that is definitely a tank.
  13. I don't understand eWheels page. They say they have a version with 2500W motor and then lower in the page they say they have a high speed version with 2000W motor. Which is higher?
  14. If you are buying a wheel for commuting an 18 inch wheel makes a difference. Smoother ride because of the bigger wheel.
  15. Any retailers sell them with Nikola pedals? Any suggestions where to buy Nikola pedals? Anyone know if it scrapes a lot more with larger pedals?
