  1. I am trying to find riders and train them as well, I have taught 3 guys here how to ride and hope to teach more. There was an article in the local paper about my efforts. If you are ever in the area of Central Washington, let me know! https://www.yakimaherald.com/lifestyle/local-collector-inspires-use-of-electric-vehicles/article_49a486a9-7498-5699-a828-762fd27f9216.html?
  2. Hello, I am a 38 year old Army veteran, new to riding EUC and have a solowheel that I have been trying to learn. I've been trying to ride it for about a week now. I usually go to Patterson Park, and try to find an area with less people to notice me crashing. I have tried the tennis courts, but am not able to keep turning for very long in that caged in area. I have tried a basketball court, which is better. I have tried going down a hill and into the grass by the baseball field, which usually gets me a pretty good distance (probably 100 feet) before I crash it. I think the grass
  3. 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
  4. I started to compile a list of riding skills that I myself found somewhat relevant for safety. I have been practicing all of these (and many more which didn't make it to this list because I do not deem them relevant enough for riding safety). The bad news: lack of riding skills is IMHO not the most important safety concern. The greatest safety hazards are, as far as I see it speed (in combination with potholes, hidden corners, lack of alertness to road conditions and obstacles and the natural power limits of EUCs, etc.), aggressive acceleration, overconfidence,
  5. Good morning everyone, special thanks to everyone here on the forums..especially @Marty Backe @litewave and @steve454 who have tirelessly answered all my questions and have provided information sometimes redundantly!. So, must say so far charged, foam protected, havent pumped in any air in the tire however....I have squeezed the tire with my thumbs and there is almost no give..not sure if I should check the PSI but i think on that front all is well. I just got back from about 15minutes in my parking garage, one of the first things I did after turning it on was running back upstairs a
  6. 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
  7. Dear EUC Pioneers, Nothing spoils the joy of EUC riding more than a painful accident. For pure luck, I was spared any serious injuries so far, but when I'm honest to myself, that's way more due to luck than skill. Any fall at higher speed and I am way out of my league to cope with that. Most likely, I end up flat on my face, ruining arms and knees on the way down. Inside our Berlin riding group, we got such a wake up call lately, when one of the members shattered his forearm just days after receiving his shiny new high performance wheel. That got us thinking. As we don't k
  8. Learning to do tricks consistently on an electric unicycle requires learning technique, (lots of) practice/repetition, understanding the parameters under which your wheel operates and recognising (and attempting to control, or embrace) any variable(s). Controlling the Variables A variable is an element, feature, or factor that is liable to vary or change. If you are trying to learn to do a trick consistently then it’s a very good idea to have a think about what elements, features or factors could vary, and how these may be controlled. Some variables are more practical to control than
  9. Hey euc lovers! I know there are lots of you who started riding very basic default models purchased off alibaba, ebay and other retailers. These tend to have sharp top corners and hurt your calves more than some of the newer models. Have any of you used/still use particular protection gear for calves to make the learning a bit easier and prevent bruising? We've recently ordered several boxes of branded custom equipment that has extra silicon inserts on the inner sides. The main reason I'm asking is to gather feedback and provide our future customers with some insight about thes
  10. So as to not hijack anyone's thread I decided to start my own. The reason for posting this is just to, hopefully, help encourage others that are learning. I've had a couple of times when I was discouraged because I wasn't making any progress. Yesterday before I went out I said that "I'd better make some progress!" and I did. Today I made even more progress. Also, I am going to include some things that I have started doing that I think are helping me. Today was my 9th day of practice. When I go out I can usually only practice for 15-20 minutes. Partially because it's HOT here (around 97
