  1. Hello all, My name is Pat, I just ordered my first EUC. I am hoping there is an enthusiast near by that might be willing to help me get started, and meet some people to get out with after I am competent 🙃. I would greatly appreciate the time and advice, as it's easier to learn it correctly now than fix bad habits later. Thank you to all and I hope to meet some great people around the forum. Happy wheeling Pat
  2. Hi everyone! First post here, and glad to know there's such a strong community! Brief introduction before I get into it: I'm a fresh EUC newbie, and my very first wheel to learn on is the KS-16x. I'm aware it's quite an advanced (and heavy) wheel to learn on, but overall it's been a short, but rewarding journey. I've had ownership for about 4 weeks now, and although I haven't had time to practice every day, I've put in a good dozen or so practice sessions / runs now. It's amazing what I've learned along the way, and it's been physically and even mentally rewarding. And being 39, goin
  3. I just got back from my first session on an EUC and I’m so very stoked!! After padding up my brand new MTen3 to a ridiculous level, I took it over to a local baseball park and played around on the concrete deck behind the bleachers & backstop. I started using the fence for support but moved to using the back of the bleachers as I could slide my hand along the railing easier than the fence. Within 30 minutes I was going from one end of a set of bleachers to the other without grabbing. Within 60 minutes I was able to basically go anywhere on the smooth concrete deck witho
  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. As most of you know I am a novice, having had my wheel a little over a week now. I have been having issues mounting without the training wheels as some of you may know. I believe I have solved this problem however. I am in the process of modifying a generic bicycle kick stand for the unicycle. The way I will have it set up is so it is spring loaded, and will help keep the one side balanced when I mount, It will be on a very sensitive spring loaded system, and so as soon as the unicycle begins to move forward it will kick the kickstand out from under the pedal and the spring will catch pushing
  6. I've never ridden one of these things yet but keep looking at them a little enviously when I see them. I'd prefer to get something 2nd hand as I suspect it will get damaged while I'm learning. I'm not looking to commute but just wanted a fun transport to do errands nearby. I'm unlikely to go off road. A cruising speed of around 15mph would be fine. I weigh about 96Kg or 211lbs and I'm roughly 190cm or 6'3" tall. Not sure if there's an age "limit" on these things but I'm in my mid fifties though I'm fairly athletic. I'll stop there otherwise this will begin to sound like a personal add. An
  7. Still very new to this (2 weeks on street). I live in San Francisco so dealing with hills important. Today went out to practice taking off from a stop and climbing hills. Battery was at 80%. While going up a steep the wheel seemed to not have enough power. It didn’t freeze but slowly came to a stop. Forum members have told me it’s a relatively underpowered wheel for 5’10” 180lb self. I’m not sure if I wasn’t riding correctly or if it not strong enough. If it’s the wheel, I may have to upgrade sooner than I thought - there are a lot of hills around here.
  8. Got my very first EUC this week (Ninebot One E+) and after a couple of days practice in the house, then some figure of 8's around the tennis courts in my local park...I finally managed to go out on a proper ride today. Wow, just wow. What a buzz. Did a 7 mile ride today along the pavements, roads and coastal paths where I live and didn't crash either (I was expecting too tbh) After getting wobbles during my first couple of days I experienced no wobbles at all today and even felt the tilt back at top speed a few times without realising I was getting to the Ninebots speed limit. Even b
  9. perfect beginner EUC! Used Ninebot E for sale. $200/obo location: California Bay Area local pick up preferred. text me at 650-396-9422 if interested
  10. Dear all, I have been lurking around this forum for quite a while but now decided to join in and register myself. The huge information, discussions and polite culture in here helped me a lot to take my first steps into this wierd experience with quite success - but I´m still going on learning. So I would like to give a brief introduction for myself. It was around my 53st birthday when I randomly watched a YT Video with some guy peforming on an EUC. I was blown away by the impression to learn this for myself and felt a really "can do" attempt to do this. Thus being sceptical I start
  11. 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
  12. Hello! I bought a "used" Ninebot One S2 just 12.30.17. It said "Milage: 2.6km" in the app and had one noticable scratch near the handle. So I got an almost brand new thingy for 330EUR. I watched a few How-to-vids on U-Tube of cause.... I made my first tries on that evening on the shoulder of my wife after attaching a luggage-belt to the handle and turning the handle-shut-off off. Next day I made some exercizes along a nearby wall and my first freehand trials. Got no further than a few meters. Whilst doing that I had more than doubled the milage. Dunno how the seller had g
  13. So, its been about day (3) of some training (about 1 to 1.5 hours at a time); reading the Learning the Dynamics thread and some videos from @Marty Backe on how to mount and the "triangle method" . Currently I can barely roll/stop, roll/stop. I have been training on some thin grass at a local park and an adjacent strip of level concrete, I am starting to do much better on concrete! With all this said as I mount the wheel and try to get going forward as soon as possible, I notice almost immediately that my wheel will turn either one direction or the next and I get the wheel wobbling, I kn
  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. SOOOO, some semi good news I hope! I just bought my EUC! couldnt give up this deal!! I am super excited to get it, make my mistakes and start learning! Any advice on the first MUST-Do's upon picking up a new EUC? I went with the NINEBOT E+, got an amazing deal over at new-egg, someplace I never thought would have any promotions or discounts but I think I did well....what are your thoughts guys? what can I expect? https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA7YS6FA2259&ignorebbr=1&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleMKP-PC&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleMKP-PC-_-pla-_-MT+-+Vehicles+%26+Tran
  16. Good afternoon everyone, so glad to know about this community. I am so glad I picked the right forum! So, I started off with simple question asking which (2) wheel EUC I should pick up? With the help of all you wonderful members I have now shifted to an actual EUC. As I research, watch videos, read opinion posts and reviews it seems like I am going deeper and deeper down this rabbits hole. With all that said I understand now the importance of buying a EUC I will grow INTO, problem is I dont know which one!!?? I am leaning toward a 14" Kingsong, I stand about 5ft9 and hover around
  17. I know there are many people who have posted their first days learning so I'm hoping this will entertain/inform anyone who takes the time to read! Quick facts about me: 1. This is my first time ever on an EU 2. I consider myself an active person; I love to play basketball and love snowboarding! I enjoy hiking, road-biking, and other active stuff 3. Slim build, I weight approx 155 lbs (70kg) 4. Motivation for the EU was for commuting to work in NYC (see how I came to choose GW14 here) and it seemed like a lot of fun Finally, I want to give shout-outs to Admin esaj, Gotway/Kingsong reseller Kevi
  18. Location: Arizona Occupation: Student Weight: 215 Height: 6'3 In the last 3 years I have become entranced by Last Mile vehicles. The concept seems like the future of personal transportation which is a game changer in a place where everyone hates walking outside in any manner that isn't exercise or trying to get inside. I have had several phases in this Last Mile Hysteria I've had. First electric longboards. Bought a Metroboard Stealth for $1400. Fell off a Metroboard Stealth. Now Selling the Metroboard Stealth (or keeping it for friend riding). Should have known s
  19. ...Hello to all my name is Blan and I'm from the UK, I have a quick question for you all: What is the best Electric Unicycle out there on the market at present for under £400 I want to use it to commute to work on Distance one way to work is = 6 miles Cheers
  20. I'm a totally newbie and I really want an electric unicycle. I'm very attracted by the possibility of going offroad so it comes natural thinking of models like the Kingsong 18 or the Gotway msuper 18. The question is: can a beginner like me learn how to ride an electric unicycle directly on a 18 wheel? Do I have to necessarly buy a smaller/cheap one to learn? I'm a good skier and I (was) a decent skater (skateboard and rollerblades) but I'm not shure if this is going to help me on a EU. Thanks for help. I really love this forum, two weeks of reading and now I' m buyng an EU.
  21. Hello, I am so excited about these! I have never seen one in my life b4 a few days abo I spent the next 9hrs researching these and I want one! I live in up state NY near the capital which is Albany I have no Idea where I can find a place where I could go physically buy one of these I Tryed googling shops or rental in NYC because I have to go there this weekend and I found nothing but dead ends. I also have a small 2 day vacation to niagra falls Canada but have yet to find anything except that they might have them at best buys in Canada. I almost bought one from altybaba.com but it concerned me
  22. Hi everyone- New here. I'm a petite woman (<50 kg) interested in getting and learning to ride an EUC to make my commute a little quicker. I was wondering if folks could give me some advice on how difficult or easy it is for a smaller person to handle some of the bigger wheels (like Ninebot). If it helps, I am reasonably athletic and coordinated but not exceptionally so. I am attracted to the Fastwheel Eva Classic because my need for distance is not that great and it seems like it would be nice to have the machine be lighter (and a bit less expensive), but I see Fastwheel has gotten a l
  23. After my first week of riding, I've been off of my KS-14C for three days now. I knew I bruised the inside of my right calf a few times, but kept riding anyway, even with the swelling. On my last tumble (slick shoes) the peddle really smacked my right shin! Between the black 'n blue and new red battle scars, the painful lesson learned is - take time to break into the sport slowly so it doesn't break you. Are there any suggestions for endurance training for new riders?
  24. Hello all, I am not only new to the forum, I am also new to EUCing in general. I got interested in it when I saw a passenger in the Shanghai Metro carry one with him, step on it and wheel off some weeks ago. I was totally impressed and am considering to get one for myself. What will I use it for? To be honest, I don't know right now. Currently I am commuting to work every day on my motorbike, which is suitable from its maximum speed and its robustness for the roads in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where I live right now. The lack of even sidewalks makes it a bit of a challenge to use
