  1. Hi everybody! I'm new to this forum, but from spending a couple of hours reading different posts, it seems like a very devoted one. Awesome! I am looking for my first ECU. I have previous experience driving Segway PT a couple of times with great success and enjoyment (pretty fast learning curve for that one). For a long time I have been interested in ECUs, and now that it has been allowed in Denmark, I really want to try it out. Here are some information that hopefully can help you provide me with some of your helpful advice: About me: Height: 180 cm Weight: 100 kg About my future ECU: Best value for the buck Able to carry my high weight Will mainly be used for commuting to work (1,2 km) and to the gym (2,5 km), but also around town Hopefully I get so excited about riding that I will go on longer trips, so some range would be great Either cheap to be intended for a starter wheel (should be able to sell for a decent price afterwards) OR have the potential to be a riding wheel for many kilometers Preferably possible to buy it in Europe Anything I have forgotten to mention? One thing I can't figure out is e.g. if I should just purchase e.g. a Ninebot One S2 (669€), use it as a starter wheel and be OK with it getting scratches - and then sell it for a decent price (at some point when/if I want to get a more expensive/feature packed wheel) - or if I should go all the way and get a wheel I might keep longer (but which also can become scratched from my initial learning curve). I have read many topics in here (especially recommendations for first wheels), but I am still super confused on what would be the best choice for me. I hope you can help. All inputs are highly appreciated. Huge thanks in advance!
  2. Hello everyone, Happy to join this forum. I ordered my generic EUC from China and have it already 3 weeks. Learning to ride is kind of challenge, exactly what I was looking for. But the funniest part is the faces of the people, their looks and stares…the car drivers even slow down…and comments like: what is that, ooh that’s what I need, how do you control it, does it have engine...ooh mom look that dude what is he on...and the mom's answer: he is on ...something ...and the best so far...look, look that dude is riding vacuum cleaner I think I’m the first one having and using EUC in my country, let’s see next summer in some park or in resort area, at that time I may encounter someone else. Yesterday learned hard way that riding close to the curb is very dangerous…one small touch of the footrest, EUC turned furiously and I did spectacular faceplant…hopefully only small bruise on my knee. I’m in good physical shape nevertheless entering my 50’s, but here was more of physiological problem of new rider I believe – in a new environment or path or situation, the attention is more divided and is easier to make mistakes, especially ones that you are not aware of. I believe my learning curve would go more smoothly having you guys here in this forum. All the best and Happy New Year
  3. Im looking into purchasing my first wheel i've narrow it down to the kingsong or one of these 2 IPS, is this site the resellers of IPS? if not , where can i purchase the IPS zero? my daily use of the wheel would probably only consist of getting around on campus and a very small amount of side walks. http://www.electricunicycleonline.com/ips-i130-30km-h-130wh-electric-unicycle.html http://www.electricunicycleonline.com/ips-zero-14-inch-30km-h-260wh-electric-unicycle.html thanks
  4. Wow.... first off let me start by saying Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I wanted to also give a big THANK YOU for those who have dedicated time to provide detailed reviews and videos of this new fascinating and growing way of mobility. This forum ROCKS! I was lucky enough to find a gently used Ninebot E+ on Craigslist literally down the street from apartment in Hollywood, and at a price 25% below market, I knew this was my time! My extreme excitement is due to getting home yesterday and after less then 2 hours of practice being able to ride around without wobbling! I was discouraged at first when the person I bought it from told me it took him WEEKS to not wobble, but i guess the amount of research and videos I've watched within the past month, coupled with finding that "sweet spot" for my feet's positioning, led to almost instant gratification of my purchase. Granted my feet and ankles were sore today but it did not stop me for riding around for a few hours again (and going for another ride later tonight). It was really between the IPS Zero, IPS 260+, and the Ninebot E+. The IPS models would have most likely shipped from China and taken weeks to get here, so paying slightly more to have an item with the most support and replaceable parts SAME DAY was a no brainer. Now that i am fairly comfortable riding i am so glad I did not let my adrenaline junkie ego convince me that the IPS 30km/h was necessary. The 9bot looks so good, even with a few scratches just knowing i could replace that part of the shell for ~$20 is insane.The ninebot one E+ feels like a tank and is almost exhausting to carry (im a smaller 160lbs guy). My weight also played a factor into the fact that I could never see myself depleting this batter on one ride. Unless my feet get extremely comfortable while riding, i rode it for nearly 3 hours and the battery was still at 75%?! For anyone who knows hollywood and the surrowding areas, i took it up the super steep hill going up to Universal Studios and it was chuggin along @ 10mph just fine (videos to come later, they are doing alot of construction in preperation for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter :D) Anyway, i just thought I would leave an initial impression and share my excitement for this revolutionary new mode of transportation for me. I honestly contemplated ordering a pizza to carry out but the site of me carrying a pizza box on this thing was just too much for day 2 LOL. Thanks again everyone for your input and knowledge, and look forward to posting some epic vids and contributing more in the future. - Elias
  5. New and looking for a cheap wheel that wont try and kill me. I have had, hell of a time... looking for wheels on all these Chinese sites and amazon.. they all look like cheap knock-offs. I am getting frustrated finding official websites that would offer returns or at least stay in business long enough for me to buy a replacement air tube for the wheel. I am looking to spend around 300-500 on a wheel. I read on the forums that Gotway, Inmotion, IPS, King Song, Ninebot, Solowheel are the safest. I also read to find the largest battery possible. I am looking for something to learn on, short rides around the park/walk small off road on the grass. Maybe if i get into it longer rides. IPS i260 14" is the best site i have found so far for a wheel in my price range. Anyone have any other suggestions? Thanks Spike
