  1. 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 the kickstand flat against the bottom of the pedal. In theory this should eliminate the need for the wheels to mount, and also eliminate the need to do the one foot push off technique in the video you all posted for me the other day. Has anyone ever tried this? Why have the unicycle companies not thought of this? or have they thought of this and just not been able to make it work properly? Anyone know? I am going to buy the parts for it today and should have a working model by the end of this weekend. If I do get the design perfected I will be sure to share with everyone. The goal will be for the kickstand to be multi purpose, to keep the unit from falling over when not in use, and to help people like myself mount the unicycle without the assistance of wheels/a wall/fence/sign what ever. Any input or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Devv
  2. Hello everyone, I need to start this entry with a Shout Out to Michael Vu! He came to Austin last weekend, and with his expert coaching and insightful encouragement I’ve a good start. Today was my second attempt at riding, and I was a bit weary of not having my balance immediately - but just like Michael told me it would happen, it did; I stepped on, balanced, and started moving with relative ease! Then that Peter walking on water moment…so like Michael coached – I rocked forward increasing speed a bit, stabilized and had a good afternoon of figure eights, straight-ways and circles! Even started working on transitioning from forward to backwards (with the help of a handrail). My legs’ muscles are adjusting. Not so much herky-jerky, but finer movement for control. I rode for a little over an hour before my legs’ muscles started feeling a bit tired which was good because I needed to stop to complete my afternoon’s obligations. The moving sensation to me seems to be more akin to snow skiing (2 skis-downhill) or bicycling rather than rollerblading or skateboarding. While I enjoy both roller blading and skateboarding, it’s nice to lean a little forward to increase power/ speed to move across a parking lot or ascend a slope instead of having to push. And to have speed/breaking control without having to make a series of turns, or drag a foot is assuring especially when cars, people, buildings…. Also, being able to just step off is really nice. Thanks again Michael!
  3. 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+Transportation-_-9SIA7YS6FA2259&gclid=CjwKCAiAo9_QBRACEiwASknDwU3I40Afc09G5n4VI5s0vwfnV37a1_pX9HNU-B5_QucxbRhpOfb8TRoCP1cQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
  4. Good afternoon all! Brand spanking new to Unicycles and E-Unicycles to begin with, I am on the fence after researching and mostly looking at specs and safety. I will be traveling a few miles to a Bus Stop to and from my home as I commute to work, I am looking at a two wheel setup. I am leaning toward the Inmotion V3 Pro or the Swagtron Any ideas which would be a better fit for my needs and easier to learn with? Im kinda concerned ill fall in LOVE and have to upgrade to a more expensive wheel soon! I plan also to use this as transportation going around the city I live in, 5 - 7 mile trips round way. Thank you all!
