  1. Day 1: King Song 1 - Free Ride 0 First impressions... SMALL, it's actually a lot smaller that I pictured it. Looks very nice all black. Didn't get far on learning to ride it. Only manage to get on it with the help of a door way, but then the fun ended as a realized the tire pressure was way to low. Turns out is basically flat, not enough air to even move the pressure gauge. I don't have a hand pump that I could find and couldn't power the compressor. I see what people say about the design of the value stem being really bad... it's horrible. What a big let down though to find the wheel you're so excited to try has arrived with "no" air in the tire. The game ended before it started with King Song taking the day. Hopefully Day 2 will be better.

  3. Thanks to eWheels and APS Fulfillment, Santa was able to continue working with the Elves to get ready for the 25th. He has learned when it is necessary to delegate. Thanks to this forum I learned about EUCs after getting the Segway/NineBot MiniPro. Then after many hours reading, watching videos, and much debate I decided to get the King Song 14C. Basically it sort of came down to it had the battery I wanted among the wheels that were currently available. While I consider it a bit over priced these days relative to the competition I thought getting it before spring, "might" allow me to get a bit of a head start on learning to ride, even though the 14D, 16S, and V5F+ were just around the corner for availability. The ACM would have probably been a very good choice, but if I like this one and can learn to ride I'm sure I'll get another wheel. I wanted a smaller wheel to start just so it would be easier to carry and hide away when needed and I figure it would always be useful after getting a bigger wheel. The V8 showed up just as I was making my decision (I could have had it this Friday), but as I reviewed what little data there was out there on that I decided that the 14C was better for me because of battery and some possible early issues I was sensing with the V8. I have to say ewheels ordering really was painless... and they sure picked a great strategy in using APS Fulfillment service. Delivery tracking and updating was extreme really. Absolutely top notch on the same level as Amazon prime or better. Light snow falling right now, but it's not supposed to last. Still it's below freezing so I think I'll have to try and do some learning indoors if I can. I might have to wait for a block of time. I'm really looking forward to it, but at the same time I'm apprehensive. With only 30km on the MiniPro I might be transitioning to the EUC a bit early, but I'll certainly continue to ride the MiniPro as the weather permits as I'm sure it will take me some time to get comfortable on the wheel. My dominant leg is also my weaker leg these days so that may affect learning and riding something like an EUC. This is one year where if there is no snow for Christmas I'll be fine with that. Thanks to everyone that makes this forum great, it made getting up-to-speed as they say easy on the 'book-training', I'm hoping it will do the same on the practical side as well.

  5. So I just finished day four of my first ever EUC riding. I thought it might be helpful for new beginners to see what my experience was like. This has been quite a journey! So first, about the hardware: king song ewheel.com exclusive 800w 840wh 14" model with all the new features, thanks to Jason Mcneil! I received it in one business day on December 31st. It shipped from Florida and I live in Phoenix. In the box is the standard stuff, but no wrist guards. Also, this new model with 840wh battery does NOT have the USB charging port even though the manual says that it does. I can't seem to get the Bluetooth speakers to work, so I wonder if this feature was left off of this model as well. I can connect to the app but not play any music. I'm using an iPhone 6S Plus. Also, if you've never owned one of these before (which I haven't- this is my first one), this unit is heavy! I'm not actually sure exactly how heavy but definitely 30 pounds. I would recommend that a beginner start with a lighter unit. The weight, coupled with my inability to ride or balance it, made for a very steep learning curve. Aesthetically it doesn't compare to something like the IPS zero or ninebot, but man is it solid and feels like high quality. In four short days I have managed to mangle the holy heck out of it, but I've already made peace with that. So on to my learning experience. Let me start off by saying that I'm 28 and about 160lbs, 6' tall with no experience and relatively out of shape. This machine was HARD to learn! Both my friend and I were so discouraged after two days of practice that I almost gave up, which wasn't really an option when you consider how expensive this unit was. Let's go by days: Day 1- mostly riding around inside with my hands on either side of a hallway. Couldn't go two feet without crashing and leaving black tire marks all over the carpet. I would suggest not riding inside especially on carpet. Played around for about 3 hours total this day and never went outside. Day 2- tried to go outside for the first time with the help of my friend. I held onto his arm and tried to learn my balance. Any time I let go of his hand I would immediately crash. Did this for about 2.5 hours with little success. Day 3- this day I decided to try on my own and was mounting using my hand on my garage door as support. Felt comfortable going forwards and backwards while keeping my hand on the wall. My driveway is small though so after I would let go I would have a very small area in which to ride before I hit a wall, car, or bush. Made very little progress so I tried going out into the street. Was able to ride maybe 10' before falling. I had a safety belt on this entire time as well, so it was physically exhausting falling so many times and having to essentially lift the unit so that it didn't go spinning out of control. I had to give up due to exhaustion. Note that the pedals hit my legs in multiple places and I have many nasty bruises from this day. Day 4- this was today and boy let me tell you did it feel good. I decided to go to a park with my friends and my dad. The park had huge flat grass fields which was ideal for me to learn on for a few reasons: 1, I didn't have to wear the safety strap which was a huge plus. 2, when I crashed I could simply walk off and not worry about too much damage to the unit, and 3, when I crashed it hurt a lot less. Today I was able to learn to ride and successfully mounted on my own and rode for 600' without falling off. It felt so good! I finally found some semblance of balance and not having obstacles in my way was the biggest help. I'm now trying to learn to turn which is hard but I'm getting the hang of it. So, I thought I would share some tips that helped me and might help you too. 1. Wear safety gear! I wore a helmet, wrist guards, knee pads, elbow pads, and then I took two full sized towels, folded them and wrapped them around my legs, taped them together at the seams, and put stretchy pajama pants on over this. Yes I looked ridiculous but I avoided all further injuries from the unit spinning and clipping my legs. Also, the towels are somewhat heavy so it doubled as strength training for your legs. I've found that I'm working out muscles I never knew I had and each day these muscles are becoming stronger, helping me to get better. But PLEASE wear wrist guards. I would have had some nasty scrapes if it wasn't for those. 2. Don't try to learn in small places. The house, hallways, driveways, and small crowded streets are all terrible places to learn. You can't get a sense of how to ride without being able to careen off in any direction for a long time. This was the biggest help in my learning. 3. Having a friend hold your hand is OK but it's better to practice mounting yourself, as this is the hardest part. I would mount and dismount dozens of times to try to get the feel for it. Along with this, if your foot isn't in the right position simply dismount and try again. Foot placement is key and when you're learning you won't be able to adjust your feet while riding. 4. When you fall, roll with the fall to minimize injury. 5. If you don't want a scratched unit, buy some cheap yoga mats and pad the heck out of it. Also, buy some sidewalk or skateboard grip tape to put on the pedals. most importantly don't give up!!! I truly didn't think I could learn this but after today I feel much more confident. Just keep at it, accept that you WILL crash, and be confident in your wheel. Confidence and relaxing is huge. I havent had a chance to take any video yet but hopefully I can soon. If you have any questions please feel free to ask!
