  1. So I’ve been riding about 2 months now . I’ve learned how to ride with one leg , so one leg spins , ride slow , carve back and forth ect...but riding backwards is still seemingly impossible for me . As soon as I get going I can’t help but turn sharply to one side or the other . Just wondering how others learned and if there were any tips or tricks . Thanks !
  2. Hi Guys. I started riding EUC purely because we started selling them in the UK. I purely use mine for fun and tricks rarely do i use it as a tool to commute. Ive clocked up about 1000km mainly in my town and have got to point of wanting to practice more advanced skills, at present i am learning to ride backwards which is coming along nicely. The reason for this post is i noticed when wanting to learn to ride backwards most videos just show people performing the tricks very rarely did i find good content showing you how to learn the tricks. So today I ask you all if you have links to good tutorials on how to perform advanced riding tricks As always thank you very much in advance to all who contribute to this topic it will benefit me and many others and revive this thread on the forumn. Thanks Andrew
  3. I would really love to hear about some other new and inventive tricks, especially original and extreme as well as high, steep and far....and of course dangerous! I made up some sick new tricks the other day at the skatepark, I am especially stoked on the "Ollie Pedal Slide"!! This need to do new things with new stuff all comes from being a skateboarder, snowboarder, snow-skateboarder and any other skillful sport and adventure I have found. How about you? P.S. My new skatepark video loading later today! ....but here's a preview pic of one of the first "Ollie Pedal Slide" I landed that day, it was only a 24 inch slide (120cm or so). I have been sliding them about four or five feet long now (165 cm or more) with faster landings and up to higher ledges! So let me know if ya got anything that you have done or are trying to do or even just thinking about doing. Holler!! Peace fo'real - Sidestreet Reny
  4. Here are a few of my favorite tips and tricks I use with Darknessbot and the Apple Watch companion app. Enjoy 😊
  5. I didn’t see a thread elsewhere, so I figured I’d start one... I know we all have our reasons and rationale for riding our wheels. Some use them for commuting. Some use them as last mile alternatives. Some use them for lazy Sunday drives. Some carve through trails. And most of us probably combine at least all of these and then some. For me, one of the guilty pleasures that attracted me to this sport, etc was the “ballet” that many in our EUC community perform. Penny spins, backward riding, 180’s, 360’s, multiple 360’s, one leg riding, crossovers, even handstands. It boggles my admittedly pea sized brain. It also humbles, impresses and inspires me. I may not be at all ready to consider graduating to the radical stuff, as I’m just now feeling like I have some degree of competence but also believe that with the basics that I possess, I am ready to at least push my envelope and start extending my comfort zone. With that said, one thing that absolutely defines this community to which anyone reading belongs, is the seemingly innate passion that you all display in helping, guiding and encouraging your fellow enthusiasts. As such I figured that perhaps we could generate a bit of an instructional / advice / do this / don’t do that / recipe for skills thread. Please.... share your experience, your hints, your advice. I don’t know if I’ll ever be the graceful virtuoso I had envisioned while admiringly watching some of you wheel ballerinas, but I’d never forgive myself if I didn’t try... thanks for any sage input or even opinionated banter.

  6. I own a KS16s and KS18L. I wonder anyone out there knows about doing tricks on a wheel would harm the mechanical integrity of the wheel such as the axle and bearings. Partly, I think that depends on the weight of the person and partly on the size of the wheel. I notice when I do one leg riding on KS16S, sometimes I would feel more stress and hear some change of motor sound when more pressure is put on one side of the wheel. However, on KS18L, neither is felt. My KS16S croaked after 3000 miles within 2 years. Did unusual riding bring it to its early demise?
  7. List here different maneuvers here to make yourself a better rider or to have safe fun....
  8. Not sure if this is old news / has been shared here before, but this just came up in my YT suggested videos. Respect to this guy on a V5F...
  9. I received my KS14D Parts a couple weeks back and thought I would post a couple before and after Pictures. And a couple explanations. My poor baby...everything's gonna be ok! New Parts.....F yeah! I was pretty damn amped to get this shiny new body on that sexy frame. Fenders, lights, electronics, pedals, pads, screws and more plastic. So I took her apart like this...in the kitchen. Lol. Ok, maybe not to the girlfriend. Quick test to check the batteries...make sure all is in order. Had to take a skeleton ride real quick for fun. Then back to assembly. And....presto change-o, good as new....minus a few fingerprints. If you are curious as to how it got like that...here is a video of some damage being done. Failing (however rare that may be. Lol) while inventing original tricks like these is what does the damage, mostly! A big reason why my wheel looks the way it does is because I am persistent and finding new things and new places to do them is the driving force behind my riding. Thanx for watching.

  10. My wife has often asked this question and I'm sure some of you also get asked by your spouses – How much do you spend on your wheel? (That’s the very polite version of the question ) So I had a spare half hour and decided I’d look at all my orders and list my expenditure going back to when I brought my first EUC back in May 2015. I’m always mending my wheel and replacing broken/worn parts – doing tricks definitely takes its toll on parts (as well as the body) . For example, “Spinning” quickly wears down the foot plates and tires. And practising “Penny Spins” can result in cracked shells and broken battery covers. And learning switch stance tricks (especially on slopes) resulted in a few burnt out control boards. With the exception of a couple of purchases I have used every part until it is worn out or broken. Some of the parts were damaged due to my stupidity – for example, I went through a number of trolley handles because I kept leaving the attachment bracket on when doing tricks. I have obviously also cannibalised my old wheels for parts – not that long ago I managed to bend the metal frame out of shape. I have stuck with the E+ mainly because I have invested a lot of time in becoming “at one” with its characteristics (With the amount I have spent I could have brought a number of different wheels). It’s also been a good wheel in that I can easily maintain and repair myself (thanks to Speedy Feet’s videos) as long as parts are available. The only real design flaws that I have come across with the Ninebot E+ is with the built-in handle snapping off and the poor quality App. I have spent an equivalent of about £120 per month. I have ridden about 4000 Km in total (although a lot of the time I’m doing tricks (E.g. going around and around in circles ) rather than riding distance). If I didn’t do tricks then I’m pretty sure I could still be running my first wheel having only required a couple of inner tube, tire and foot pedal replacements. However, I have had so much fun and get a huge amount of pleasure from trick riding, and also from maintaining my wheel. I still get that butterfly feeling when I go riding!

  11. How much damage have you done to your EUC? Even if you don't do tricks like me or ride off road, even the best of us fall and subsequently do a little beating up on our wheels. Well....I don't know if anyone wondered what happens to my wheel after doing what I do. Well here's a couple pics folks. EUC Street Pedal Grind before and after. Here's some pics. There's a video rundown on it's way for the almost indestructible KS14D. Wheel aside....I was really damn proud of getting the before and after pics into the same perspective.
