EUC

  1. Hi all. Today i got my Gotway Teala V2 I am new to riding electric unicycle so today i just watched u-stride beginner videos. I am a electric scooter retailer but always been intrigued learning how to ride an EUC lockdown has just given me the time to focus on learning. My plan of attack is to practice drills for 1 hour a day for a week and then attempt going for a ride is this fron your experience a practical approach? I created this post to say shout out to all the fellow euc riders liking what i see of the community so far. I am from Sittingbourne Kent and wante
  2. Almost a year ago I was bitten by the EUC bug and my life changed... for better! Not only I returned to my twenties, but my interests gradually increased towards embedded systems, DIY and hardware. Afterwards I found myself comfortable in this excellent community full of positiveness seemingly also induced by the EUC bug I'm going to disclose that I've been living around hardware without much care more than 20 years as a professional computer scientist/engineer. Also I want to admit I've changed (sub-)industries a lot because I've never been truly happy with my job, I've always had the fe
  3. For me there has been a long development process in my progression of learning to ride an ECU. I’m presently about to pass the 300km mark on my first wheel (9BotE+), and I find myself still acquiring new skills with every ride. My personal experience of learning has been very different from that of many of the boasts I’ve read in forums (1 hour and I was bored of my slow wheel). Granted, I did take those with a grain of salt, armored up and put in the time to learn the wheels. Developing the skills necessary to ride an EUC has been truly rewarding, and now I can’t imagine life without one; I
  4. Hi, my name is Mauricio, i am from Bogota, Colombia, in my country there are not much EUCs, so I have had the luck to met someone here who taught me some basics. at this time, i am able to ride, make turns, (not to tight), mount without help, brake, etc, however, I have a slight fear, if i will have to stop, mount, and go forward in the middle of a hill, (up or down) is there any consideration to take, any variation of my body inclination, for mount and start to go forward? Sorry i have had to use a little help of deepl, for write here Thanks in Advance
  5. I've been really digging down into the details and trying to make a nice dense video with everything you need to know how to get rolling for the first time. Its a complete beginners tutorial covering the gear, tips, the basics, where and how to practice riding so you can stay on. Successfully taught someone how to ride in just 1.5 hours!
  6. Yeesh... First off, i hope this is in the right area. I apologize if not! So i just got my KS-16s the other day. I tried it for the first time yesterday and was able to ride a good 20 metres without falling. I was pretty proud of myself, even though the tire pressure was super low. I posted a video of me riding on social media, and my younger brother, who is like a wizz, saw it and was like "I'm coming over!". I'm like, "oh no...." Fast forward... we're in the school playground..area thing..its all slanted and sloped and terrible and he hops on. I can already tell hes found his cente
  7. A few weeks ago, I was fortunate to discover the world of electric unicycles. I stumbled upon it as I was researching different e-scooters options that could relevant as a practical commuting device in Manhattan. My research led me to the following conclusion: no e-scooter, or e-skate comes close to the performance, range, compact size as an EUC. The problem was, I didn't know anyone who's even tried an electric unicycle and maybe saw once a rider quickly zipping through Broadway street, standing magically tall on a fast spinning wheel. Fortunately, I stumbled upon this forum and after c
  8. Be gentle... Please forgive the following.. Lack of suitable protection, i have now bought some Flexmeters and a meter roll of bandages. The potato quality video, my phone is boss as at video, but the free online editor i used spits out crap. The constant shots of my ass (you love it though). The peeing dog. I have nothing else to say here. The lack of any talent what-so-ever. I promise the following going forward.. Nothing. (Whoops, this isn't my wedding vows..) I will try again, and again. and then take a break if i
  9. So I’ve been riding about 2 months now . I’ve learned how to ride with one leg , so one leg spins , ride slow , carve back and forth ect...but riding backwards is still seemingly impossible for me . As soon as I get going I can’t help but turn sharply to one side or the other . Just wondering how others learned and if there were any tips or tricks . Thanks !
  10. This is a general guide for beginners. It is pier to pier advice from a fellow enthusiast. Not responsible for results. Post is likely to be edited. Can I learn ? If you have normal movement of your legs and feet. If you can walk a miles (1.6km) in gusts of 20 mph ( 32km/h) winds without assistance. If you are strong enough to withstand falling to the ground and don't mind bumps and bruises then yes you can learn to ride an electric unicycle. Riding an electric unicycle combines the skills of walking and riding a bicycle. When you walk forward you lean forward first then move
  11. Challenge accepted! In my original thread, I had realized I wanted to wait for the new wheels to come out before picking out my first wheel. But in my impatience, rather than buying a “starter” wheel I would quickly outgrow, I thought maybe I could get started on my “second” wheel, which was likely to be an MTen3. Sober voices advised me to reconsider, but I figured I could take a careful and patient approach since I was going to have to wait regardless. Worst case, I figured I would put the rocket back in my proverbial pocket and learn on my “main” once I knew what that would be. Th
  12. Hi all, I am new to this forum and this strange fascination, so I thought I might provide some background. A couple of years ago, on my way to a boat show, I stopped in disbelief at the roped-off part of the parking lot. I couldn't believe my eyes: here were people (or maybe robots or remote-control show-room dummies ?) gliding around without any apparent body movement ! As I watched closer, I saw they were standing on some kind of car battery sized box mounted on a single tyre, very strange. It turned out they were real people, demoing and selling a novel transportation met
  13. New Inmotion V8 arrived from SpeedyFeet (thank you Speedy Feet) yesterday (Friday 5th January), to great excitement. Unfortunately, the weeather here in Northern UK was terrible so couldn't get out. So day 1 of practice consisted of around 1 hour of standing on it and some wobbly transations across my office (around 3 metres wide). It felt like I was learning a little just getting the feel for balance. Wasn't long before right calve and right ankle in a bit of discomfort(!) Today (Saturday 6th January), better weather and a trip to a stiff fenced basketball area, identified as ideal for E
  14. Hello everyone! So, just got a shipping update, I am to expect my Ninebot E+ next monday! Must say I am super excited....I got to thinking after reading and watching some EUC training videos, a majority of the time in the beginning stages the EUC takes quite a beating! I saw one video where the battery ejected out of the EUC! after a small tumble in the parking lot. I was wondering what people here do to "protect" their investment while they are learning, and by protect meaning try to prevent it from getting beat up in the first few weeks of training. I do understand a tumble h
  15. Hey All! One stop shop here!! Just as the title says, let me know what you have & need/want done to improve your EUC experience! Also providing maintinence plans & services! Talk to you soon!
  16. Hi everyone! I was reading your forum from time to time recently, finally got to introduce myself write something. I got myself my first euc (is this a proper way to abbreviate?) - V8 a few months ago. I learned to ride it in like 3 sessions of around 20 minutes and felt pretty confident after that. I do snowboarding and amateurish ice skating from time to time in winter, I think that helped. It was very tiring and sweaty to learn (even when it was cool weather yet - 5 to 10 Celsius... and I'm in a bad physical shape, slightly overweight - 183 cm\95 kg). Fun fact, I learned to r
  17. What I’ve learned/Tips on how to learn to ride from my own experience. Gotway ACMs+ Here’s where I’m at in my learning curve. I can now ride for blocks on city streets and sidewalks. I can get on the unicycle freestanding without the use of a pole or wall for balance. I’ve only ridden 26 total miles. 1. First, know that you’re going to fall and then fall some more and a lot after that. At least I did until I figured out a few things. Yeah I know, kinda obvious. 2. Your legs are going to get bruised on the inside near your calf muscles. Also expect abras
  18. If you are a beginner about to train on the Step-n-Roll, you will want to wear protection, not only from falls, but from the unicycle itself. Its sharp edges and hard surfaces will abrade your skin. Experienced riders, who aren't gripping the sides of the housing in a desperate effort to stay balanced, will not likely experience its ergonomic shortcomings. Update 170524: With less than 10 minutes total on the pedals, the last time I mounted the unit and attempted forward navigation, the machine pitched me forward violently. Every time I have turned it on since then, the motor jerks
  19. 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
  20. Lots of people read this forum for the first time when they're trying to decide what wheel to buy for the first time. There are many threads on the subject, but I thought it would be useful to consolidate and summarize the top recommendations from experienced riders. Please vote on the poll so we can help guide newbies to a good decision for their first electric unicycle!

  22. I believe it had been repeatedly suggested in this forum that learning single footed riding solves the problem of adjusting the foot position. The problem however is: my desired foot position with both feet on the pedals is quite different from what I find a safe position with only one foot. That means I can only adjust to the ideal position while riding already double footed. Double footed adjustment is after all not overly difficult. I can simultaneously put weight on the forefoot of one foot and on the heel of the other foot (without changing the driving state at all) and twist the fo
  23. This video is for new electric unicycle users to learn how to ride!
  24. Man, I have to say that I feel like I'm losing my mind. I have been very happy with my progress at learning the EUC after an admittedly rough start. I can now go off road, up and down curbs (on a 14" wheel mind you) and do 180 degree pivot turns all without falling or even coming close to falling. My balance overall feels incredible and I love the "training" aspect of wheel riding. However! I cannot ride backwards for the life of me. I'm really struggling with riding on one leg as well. The amount of pressure that is pressed against the calf and shin bone is punishing. I bought some new
