Hi, i'd like to ask the community for some help. Now that our wheels cost more money and are widely known to (some) people, are prone to stealing. We had a case of a friend here in Greece that someone stole his KS16S when he was buying some coffee. Me personally, i rock a Nikola Plus 100V with the 21700 cells, that from what i've seen so far from other wheels and my one, no-one uses the on-board USB charging port, so i thought why not REVERSING IT, so it can be used from inside the wheel for a specific purpose or even diy stuff. For example see this : i've got so much empty space on the upper part of the wheel, a compartment that in other variants of the Nikola (or plus) is filled with extra battery pack or even the actual board (see Nikola 84V) So, i'm thinking if i can have the 5V port inside the wheel i can install one of the following things : a gps tracker a spare android phone that is used as a gps tracker more speakers ( ) but last, the best thing that is missing from this wheel extra cooling fans cause as @Marty Backe mentioned in his video "First impressions" at 13:40 talks about the fan that is there just to circulate the air, cause this wheel doesn't have proper ventilation. So....... What are your opinions and/or suggestions about the reversal of the USB port, the possibilities are "∞" i also have a raspberry pi3 with a x4 breadboard, i could do so many things inside the wheel, but first things first i could REALLY install extra fans and circulate the air properly!!! Does anyone know how to reverse the usb port and make it internal ? maybe friends that know how things work, @esaj or @enaon ?
Okay so here goes. I decided that this spring I am going to learn to thing. 1) Stepping on and off with non-dominant leg. 2) Reverse riding 20m or about 60'. Then I take it from there... I have been watching some videos off this, but one thing that is hardly covered is suggestions once you have learned to do this what people can pass on to make it easier and to avoid major injuries. So it should be obvious that if you are fully geared up you might hurt yourself less, but it can lead to being less agile so... Next thing what wherl do you suggest and why, and which would you not recommend and why? So why do I want to learn step 1? Answer I figure it might be useful to know before hoing to step 2. To me that means to build up balance and muscles to do this. This is due to my physical shape is rock buttom since my osteoarthritis and psoriatic arthritis in knees and hip and lower back. But my attitude to this new challenge: I choose to do this not because it is easy but because it is hard, and I will grow and benafit from this. (I seem to recall a dude saying somthing similar about going to the moon, yes I am almost that old or the statement is just so true and famous that it rang to the next generation too). So heres comes the questions I hope can get answers that help me and others. * Best choice of wheel, size, brand and why? * What you would not use? * Any aids that can help, wall, fench, broom what ever you found usefull? * Any protection you should or should not use? I can't see me doing this without a helmet. * Please share any video you have that helped you or you made. * Surrunging that can help? Eg a small decline kind of leading you in the direction you want to go or better at a level gound? Asphalt vs grass? Now I know thete are a lot out thete on youtube, but this is why I asked for a new main page for learning section and a place people can post progress as they learn new tricks or skills. I know this is going to be hard to learn, so I am going to film this and post videos for others that want to learn and to gain encouragement when it seems too hard. Ohh yes this is an accident waiting to happen....
