First EUC for heavy hotheaded rider?
xoverload posted a topic in Which Electric Unicycle to get?I'm in the 100kg (220lbs) territory, and I'm looking to get into EUC world. There are few wheels thst cought my attention: Tesla v2, Nikola+, V11, RS HT, Monster Pro and Sherman. I think it's fair to say that I'm one of those people that make rash decisions or how I like to call myself "phase man". When something takes my attention I'll think only about that until it becomes boring, thus the "phases". Examples, 3D printing (upgraded anycubic i3 mega), paintball (old etek 2 upgraded to max + a lot of gear), FPV freestyle drones (2x 5" drones, 1x cinewhoop, sky03o, x9 lite, xfire), motorcycles (Yamaha MT09 SP,) and now PET world. Basically I'm looking for wheel that would not make me want another wheel for some time. I like to ride my motorcycle aggresively (3 cils, lots of low end torque), thus I can only assume I would behave same on the wheel. Range is not so important to me since I would commute ~15km daily in the city area. Rodes are not perfect, there are small potholes, small cracks etc. Also since it would be my first contact with EUCs, there will be a lot of falls I guess (I do have bad knee, displaced patula few times, went to surgery, 12 years without incident), so a wheel with good crash resistance is a must. But I think I would not over push my limits until I'm really confident with my skill. Since I'm at least 1500km from the dealer I would have to fix everything I break by myself (I'm an engineer). Also I do not really want to spend a lot of money on something that I can not try before and for which I do not know if I'm even going to like. On the other hand I would rather now spend more money on top wheel if I would know for sure that I'll be 100% into EUCs. I do not have option to try EUC since nobody remotely close to me owns one. Taking all of this into consideration, what would you guys recommend me to go for? I'll most likely wait for Black Friday / Cyber Monday deals.
and do any of them last longer than the two years that slime says it protects for? i've had a bike mechanic say he hated working on bikes with slime.
