  1. Lot of us had face plants in this forum. New and experienced. Some of them got seriously injured. I'm wondering if all of them recovered well and riding again. Generally we get posts soon after the unfortunate incidents but after that we don't hear from them again. I'm just curious to know if they still love EUCs.
  2. 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
  3. I came off the other day ( yeah, what's new, right?!) but it got me thinking. Here's what I wrote in another post: the other day I was about to cross from one smooth surface to another, on the same level. No biggie right? Wrong. You see there were women ( why did it have to be women?) walking on the other smooth surface, so I had to cross further down, behind them near where these parallel surfaces ended, and not in my usual spot, somewhere nearer the middle. at about 15kmh, what I didn't notice was that these two level surfaces WERN'T level near the ends, only around the midd
  4. Now it's personal. This is the master list of micro unicycle brands, categorized by safe electrical behavior. This is the thread to read if you want to buy a uni that "doesn't actively try to kill you" (@esaj). Problem One: BMS shutdown Most popular low-priced generic style brands, and many other popular brands of the last generation, are made with an electric bicycle style battery management system (BMS). This part can try to protect the battery and shut down instead of protecting the rider, even in the best conditions. This means, the unit stops working unexpectedly. This WILL happen one d
  5. 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
  6. Will this design eliminate face plants? I couldn't tell if they are "wheels" in the front. Wondering what's the purpose of them hanging there? Found it on pinterest.
  7. Has anyone ever practiced for a Power Shut Off? I understand the illimitable scenarios associated with riding that would make it virtually impossible to practice a cut off for every angle, slope, incline and speed encountered when riding but it would be nice to have some form of game plan second natured in my head if the need ever arises. I've had 2 engine cut offs when flying helicopters. The maneuvers to land in these situations was imprinted in my subconscious after repetitive practice. Both choppers sustained heavy damage upon landing but at least I walked away. I would love to practice fo
  8. Apparently all "face plants" are results of power fails. So that makes me think, there should be a way to make EU still rolling WITH gyro powered by back up battery. Since gyro is only to make things upright , it might not need a primary battery. Does this technology work that way? Or can it have a small back up battery just to kick in when main power quits, just for few seconds so we can stop safely without face plants. Segway must have something like that. We never heard of Segway related face plants.
