    EUC pads on body not soft (at all really)

    It's likely from doing so many start stops (which you won't be doing nearly as often as you are when you're learning) and also over correcting while the wheel is moving (as you're getting the fine muscle movements down to balance). As you get more comfortable on the wheel it will occur with enough less frequency that the little bit that remains your body easily acclimates to (and doesn't even notice).
  2. That's the beauty of it - the only thing the customer cares about is which scooter happens to be closest when they need one, so as long as you drop them off somewhere there are people someone is bound to prefer downloading a new app to walking X distance.
  3. @RockyTop does the TN code say anything about "Play vehicles"? The WI code talks of EPAMD (which EUCs seem to meet the description of) but then also has a line saying that "Unicycles are Play vehicles" (with no mention of electricity) - so there's two totally different sets of rules that could clearly apply (one saying you can't go on the roads at all and another giving essentially the same rules as a bicycle).

    Age poll

    I've found there's a large population that literally cannot mentally picture anything other than a regular unicycle - even when you describe how it's different and tell them it goes faster, they just picture a person riding a regular unicycle but comically sped up (possibly to the tune of yakety sax)
  5. I've had it enabled since September. Haven't had a fall to trigger it yet (thankfully).
  6. Inmotion @JASONJIAO please be careful - Facebook and Google just had their enterprise certs pulled for allowing non-employees to install apps via them. I'd highly recommend you switch to distributing the app via Testflight or some other apple approved method of getting beta apps to customers as I would really hate for you guys to have your cert pulled (it's a huge pain in the ass - no one in the company can use them either and if Apple isn't as interested in working with you as they are Facebook and Google it could end poorly or at the very least take even longer to resolve).

    10" Travel Wheel, King Song version of the MTen3?

    If I could actually fly with it I'd have an order placed with express shipping and an apology letter written to my wife before the end of a minute. Whether that's because airlines have relaxed their rules or maybe e-bike batteries become more commoditized so you can just rent them at kiosks (and exchange for charged ones) or something. I'd still probably want a trolly handle. Without the ability to fly with it I think the modularity would be a downside - I'd rather have it be as small and light as possible (though I'd still be much less interested in getting this as a second wheel - I'd rather get a faster one if I can't get one that I could fly with)

    Those Things Are Not "Pedals"

    Did you read the second definition of pedal? 100% counts. ped·al1 /ˈpedl/ noun 1. each of a pair of foot-operated levers used for powering a bicycle or other vehicle propelled by the legs. 2. a foot-operated throttle, brake, or clutch control in a motor vehicle.

    How to Offroad?

    Not when I was there, but I was there during mid day (mid 40 degrees F)

    How to Offroad?

    Apparently they use a different method, I don't remember the exact details (that was one of our questions when we first started investigating building, too) but they don't slow down building season at all in winter here (edit: they're currently building a brand new high school across the street from our current apartment and they haven't slowed down one bit - it's actually been a kinda mild winter so far, which has been nice, too - hasn't reach the teens (F) at all).

    How to Offroad?

    As someone who literally just had their foundation poured last week - any tips on what to look for?

    DarknessBot - iOS App

    Is it possible to get added to the TestFlight beta (if it helps I'm an iOS dev so I know how to make good bug reports)? My email is clrams at the email service provided by Google.

    Inmotion V8 bluetooth always on

    I'm going from memory, but I believe that mine will turn off bluetooth when not plugged in but if it's charging it will keep the bluetooth active while turning off the wheel.

    Personally I use the InMotion app to change the lights and stuff, but then I use DarknessBot to actually see my riding stats and such.
