  1. I'm posting here because I would love some thoughts from the community to help strengthen my relationship with these wheels. After putting over 4K miles on my Ninebot Z10 and loving it, I purchased an S18 in hopes of not face planting as often when hitting these huge potholes in Seattle. Shortly after falling in love with the S18, I send the thing into an accident by over-accelerating and inducing a strong pedal dip. This destroyed the trolley handle and ripped me to shreds. Diagnostics showed the unit was working fine after this. After a week of bandages I hopped back on to test if it wa
  2. I’ve had a Solowheel for several months and use it to get between buildings I work in in Seattle. A few nights ago I went on a 5mile journey and right before I got to my destination it suddenly shutoff causing me to face plant. Luckily I wasn’t going full speed but I’m shocked that there is any possibility of these devices doing such a thing. I can’t find any other posts of this happening to others so I’m a bit mystified. The best theory I have is damage from water spray but all the manual says is don’t ride in heavy rain. The streets I rode on were still damp from earlier rain but nothing lik
  3. As promised last night I will share a bit more from my accident this summer on my Inmotion V8. First off I am much better off having that accident. So despite the pain and temporary problems it caused and a few days of sick leave from work. I am lucky on how this happenen. And that I had @Scatcat there to observe what happened. The short story is we decided to go practice emergency breaking aka test out how hard we could break or how short a distance needed with out wheels. His was a GT16 and mine was my Inmotion V8. At the time I had only clocked around 350ish km and still learning
  4. EDIT 12/2018 There were humorous certificates embedded with these posts but the links have timed out over time. Sorry. I think it's high time we "Planters of the Face" be recognised for our achievements, and contributions to the merriment of our fellow EUCers by sharing, in excruciating detail, our pain and injury, in the futile hope that they might not follow in our face foot steps. towards that end I have created this FACE PLANT WALL OF INFAMY. If you believe you deserve a certificate for you contributions to face plantism, pop me a private message, simply stating
  5. Hello, French Wheeler, but not as good as some other, I had a bad accident (broken shoulder, now with some metal!!) with my small ninebot one E+... and I spent some time in order to understant why we face cut out or accidents. So, on the forums, I could recognize 4 kind of accidents : 1- Pilot did ignore alarm.... nothing to say.... too optimistic, 2- driving accident (bumps....), 3- Sudden cut off.... (looks like my accident, but I'm not sure it wasn't a technical failure), 4- Technical failure. Rare since construcors did improve the safety...or correct bu
  6. I'm currently typing this on my phone from a hospital bed. Just got my knee stitched (and some patches for road rash). So earlier tonight I decided to go on a ride on my Gotway Tesla, around the neighborhood like any other evening. I know these roads pretty well and there's a few spots of smooth, quite new asphalt. I've been wondering about the actual max speed of the Tesla, as it just doesn't seem to run out of power. I've previously pushed it over 55kmh, which already started to feel iffy, but hey, I managed it so it must have more power, right? Sudden breath of bravery came out of
  7. Hey everyone, I decided to share today ride (not sure if was the same topic or similar) but today i decided to do most of riding out of the hard track so i went to park. Nice smooth and green grass, having ninebot one e+ U can't go for properly 4wd but that was ok and easy to manage to my skill level. So after around 30 min of riding i decided to have a short break to rest my feet on local bench and when i parked my unicyc i noticed terrible smell... ok so i went to another bench which was like 50 meters away, the smell was following me as well. I check shoes and my back t-shirt (when i r
  8. Hello Friends I hope this advice will help everybody here Well The friend s daughter recently just had an accident with a Mini. How to avoid this? Here's what I recommend: 1 / First know the route in advance allows you to prepare for obstacles such as deformation of the roadway, sidewalks, traffic problems 2 / The child's weight is important, in fact, the Mini is based on the weight of the owner adjusts the driving function, you need to do is go into the settings and reset factory settings at each change of users, to "erase" the memory of the mini data about
  9. I had an accidient by a power cut off. Drove at max speed when the 9b1 E+ as pulled the pedal back, I moved back and when leaning forward again then suddenly lost power. Result: Lots of excoriations of the reight half side of my body. Mainly landed on the right hip causing a serious laceration which had to be stiched in hospital. Later clottted blut had to be taken out by an operation. 4 days in hospital. Really dont trust the device any more. Just recently my nabour had a similar expierence with another 9b1 e+ from a friend, howeve
  10. I've been absent from the board for almost two months ( been busy settling back into life in England), but I have been riding. I managed without a car for a month, relying on my wheel to travel. After that I needed to travel further, and public transport in England takes forever to get anywhere, and it's hellaciously expensive. Example Poole to London about 120 miles, £51. I have flown to Spain and back for less!!! anyway, I found myself in Bournmouth yesterday, and because I had my wheel with me,I went for a cruise along the magnificent beach. I'm not joking, having spent 5 months e
  11. Hi all! I joined this forum in hope to get some insight on why accidents happen with electric unicycles. I have no experience with them and am doing a little project on whether electric self-balancing devices, motorized skateboards, etc. should be legalised in public areas (in Switzerland) or not. So, here are my questions: 1. Whenever you had an accident, which category would you place yourself in? (It would be helpful if you could shortly state what happened as well) A. self-inflicted, no one else included B. self-inflicted, other people included (e.g. lost balance in public
  12. Hi There, my v2 is not even a year old and already broke down. The axle snaped and I had a nasty fall, injuring my right shouldger and knee badly. I had a closer look and it seems that the axle corroded, but only on the side where the wires come out from the motor, and that caused the accident. How can I get it swapped claiming the 1yr factory warranty? Since the axle is built into the motor the whole motor needs to be replaced. All ideas a re welcomed and appreciated! Regards
  13. Dear Community, The day before yesterday, I finally received my monowheel after having been waiting for the ninebot one P for more then 8 months, and it does not seem to come out any more, I decided to buy the new Ninebot One S2. The first 10 km were great, I had to get used to the mono wheel. Then yesterday I wanted to start my first round of about 5 km, and first I had to ride up a hill. With about 15km/h I was suddenly listening some beeping and reduced the velocity. Suddenly with another beep the Ninebot started tilled in front and I had a quite bad fall to the ground. The result, the
  14. Hi All, I want to inform you of an accident I had two days ago. (I have about 170 Km overall on my IPS Zero) I was on my way home on my IPS Zero, driving in the middle of a small side street at night as, only 150 meters from home, I consciously thought: let's accelerate to drive home fast. I wore a helmet and motorbike gloves. Estimated speed about 8 to 10 Km/h. I accelerated fast leaning forward. But this time I accelerated to fast (=overleaning forward). I felt the pedals going down ... with me falling forward. It happened so fast I had no time to 'think about it'.
