  1. Ready to move up from my Z6 which I've had for a few months now. Looking for something with a little more speed and range - 16x is at the top of my list! Let me know if you have one for sale:)
  2. So we kinda knew this already but I saw this article today and thought it wouldn't be long before the issue of these was addressed 'officially' no surprise at the boring no-fun-allowed response we get here in the UK. Thoughts? http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/tech/news/a673228/its-illegal-to-ride-hoverboards-in-public-police-crack-down-on-segway-spin-offs.html#~pqTOZHKGM5i3ZC http://www.cps.gov.uk/legal/p_to_r/road_traffic_offences/#dot
  3. Is anybody in the UK concerned about these two recent serious E-scooter incidents and the potential repercussions for EUC riders?
  4. Electric cars 'will not solve transport problem,' report warns https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-48875361
  5. My dad's Gotway has been seized under the section 165 road traffic act 1988. Do you think there is some possibility of getting it back? As the officer just snatched it from his hand and said it is going to be crushed.
  6. Thought I would set up a new forum for any new or old Fylde Coast riders to arrange meetups. There was a NW forum but it has died a death.

  8. Hi everyone, We have all read in the media today that UK is clamping down on self balancing devices! Lets try to put a stop to this and show our unity on this matter. Let's try to change the law...!!! l have came a across this petition set up by Steve Miltion. If it gets over 80,000 signatures it will be discussed on the House of Commons! Let's start signing! Please let's spread the word on social media and get the numbers we need! Let's do it for EUC! Thank you for your support #UKridesEUC ---------------------- Allow the usage of self-balancing scooters on public footways and cycle lanes Electric transporters can reduce the number of buses and cars on the streets. Due to the Section 72 of Highway Act 1835, on 12th of October Crown Prosecution Service released a guidance under which the usage of hoverboards and electric unicycles on the public streets would be illegal. Electric unicycles and hoverboards are safe and emission-free transportation devices that have gained popularity in the UK and worldwide since 2012. The devices are portable, they do not require any parking space, and also have restricted speed. Normal riding speed does not exceed running speed. There is a UK manufacturer producing high-quality, stable and safe electric transporters. This company created jobs for over 50 people and represents a significant innovation in transport industry.

  9. Hi All I have been riding now for a few years and it starting to get a bit lonely so If anybody is local to SW London and would like Meet and ride, I have some great routes, let me know!!
  10. I have been following a UK court case relating to the extremely sad and tragic death of a pedestrian who died as a result of being hit by a cycle that was not road legal (In the UK bikes have to have a front brake which the cyclist's bike did not have although these "Fixie" bikes are quite common in London). The reason for my interest is that the cyclist was prosecuted under a very old (1861) offence of causing GBH by "wanton and furious driving". This offence appears to be used when it is not possible to prosecute under modern road traffic laws; apparently, it was originally created to deter people from driving horse carriages recklessly. I am not sure if it could ever be applicable to EUCs, although its use (and the use of the 1835 Highways Act) does suggest that modern laws need to be written in the UK to reflect current and future modes of transport. It's a really tragic case and my heart goes out to the family of the pedestrian who was killed. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-41034492 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-41036581
  11. Looking for riders to join me on the "Ride the lights night" here in Blackpool on the 30th August from 7pm to 10pm The whole promenade road is closed to traffic from Bispham to Star Gate and open for bikes of all types. I'll be on my Ninebot One http://www.blackpool-illuminations.net/Ride-the-Lights.html Put your name down if your coming along so we can ride as a group. You don't have to do all of the ride just any part.
  12. Hi guys, Just a quick word as a representative of Project42 UK. We are currently 2-3 weeks away from receiving the new batch of Kingsong KS16S and KS14S models. Exciting to test and ride these ourselves, but also to start pushing this brand in the UK again. If you want to support the local retailer, get a smashing deal on warranty and spares provision, customer support with the quickest response time - just drop me a message or write your feedback down below. The first 10 to pre-order are guaranteed 10% discount and free next day signed delivery across the UK.
  13. Does anyone know if there a group that is actively lobbying for electric unicycles to be recognised as a legal form of transportation in the UK? If not, would anyone be potentially interested in participating in a group set up for this purpose? I know there is a petition on the UK parliament website, but realistically just getting people to sign a petition isn't going to change anything (especially if it's not huge numbers of people). I really believe that electric unicycles can be a viable form of personal transportation and that they have a number of distinct benefits over other forms of transportation. As with all forms of transportation, EUCs have some limitations which need to be considered and mitigated. It would be useful to construct a list of people, groups and government agencies/departments who should be lobbied, together with some high quality materials to facilitate lobbying (E.g. case studies for use, environmental impacts and how any potential risks could be mitigated). It may also be beneficial to try to improve public perception of EUCs, including highlighting the differences between EUCs from "hoverboards" which appear to be where a lot of the negative perception relating to EUCs appear to originate. In London there are very active/noisy cycling lobby groups, and it may be possible to learn from these groups on how to best lobby the relevant stakeholders?

  15. I can't see that anybody has flagged this here before but I found a petition on Project 42's blog page to legalise EUC's etc in the UK. https://www.change.org/p/george-eustice-mp-david-cameron-mp-rt-hon-patrick-mcloughlin-to-review-the-laws-of-using-electric-self-balancing-boards-and-unicycles-in-public-places?recruiter=512490860&utm_campaign=signature_receipt&utm_medium=email&utm_source=share_petition i hope all the UK members will sign this.
  16. I've had enough of winter, so I'm heading to the UK for a couple of weeks of better weather. But of course, I can't bring my EUC all the way from New Zealand... I'm going to be based in Tonbridge, Kent from 26 August through to 11 September. And in keen to know if there is anywhere in that area that I can rent an EUC? Commercial or private, I'm good either way - even if it is only for a few days, it would be great to break up a lot of (boring) walking with some wheeling!
  17. Living here in the UK, I was just wondering if anyone has bought an EUC from abroad , whether it was cheaper and what experiences they had good or bad. I initially was looking to buy from America as the price seemed so cheap compared to the UK but wondered if there were import duties, tax, exchange rate etc to consider. Ended up buying from a UK based firm for peace of mind!! http://www.poolmarket.co.uk/ninebot-one.html
  18. Hi everyone, I'm Roberto from PET(PersonalElectricTransport), we've open a pre-order for the Gotway MCM V4 Electric Unicycle Hs version. Any question please don't hesitate in ask. https://personalelectrictransport.co.uk/shop/electric-unicycle/gotway-mcm-v4-electric-unicycle-uk/
  19. Anyone interested in forming a group to meet and ride together NW Lancashire uk, all welcome get in touch. Kind regards Jeff.
  20. My twin-wheel Airwheel Q3 is for sale at an asking price of £500. This is the top of the range Airwheel, the only Airwheel so far with a 340Wh battery giving a range of about 16-18 miles. (Ignore quoted range claims - they are of the 'Volkswagon' type, greatly exaggerated) Purchased at the end of September, it has a retail price of £799. I have been learning to ride on it and have covered approximately 100 (dry) miles over 6 weeks. Please note, it has plenty of scratches and scores on the casing as I didn't think to protect it for the first few weeks. (It is now swaddled in cushioning). You will understand why it is scratched after your first attempt to ride one of these things!) At time of placing this ad, it's only on its 6th charging cycle (994 to go...?). Willing to arrange delivery if near Glasgow and can demonstrate to anyone new to Wheels. Otherwise will organise a Payment-on-Delivery exchange at buyer's cost. Willing to drop price to £450 for anyone on this forum. I have a couple of other photos I can email/share which wouldn't fit this advert!
  21. Hi, I have a copy unicycle and at the moment it will not turn on. I have checked the battery and the motor so it must be the PCB. Can anyone help me to source a replacement part, please. Thank you
  22. Hi everyone, I have 2 brand new ninebot one E+ model that i received as unwanted gift this Christmas. The two units are brand new and still boxed. I live in Earls court and I am willing to deliver in London only. The price is 700£ and I can do a little discount if you come and collect it in person. Please let me know and I can also give you some free classes on how to ride it if you require (Hyde Park) :). Cheers Francesco
  23. Just thought I'd share a few pictures I've taken of the floods experienced by the City of York. For those of you unaware of what has happened: Basically, it rained a hell of a lot in Northern England and the water found it's way into the river system and ultimately to York & the surrounding area. There's a hell of a lot of atrocities around the World and ours probably pales into almost insignificance but the floods have left many hundreds of families homeless, the City having to find more finances & the country as a whole, needing to look into much improved defences. This has been the worst extent of flooding the City has ever seen but interstingly, only the 2nd highest river level (after 2000). This is a small album I've created. To keep it more relevant for this forum, I've included here, a photo with my EUC when I went out for a ride to see the latest situation:
  24. I figured this should have a thread by now. A new EUC developed in the UK Uniwheel. They have advertised the launch party on their Facebook so there should be some reviews soon if anyone on here is attending(?) They are yet to release specs but based on what it says on their site I'm assuming: Custom BMS/controller addressing the safety concerns Hot swappable batteries Integrated headlights Replaceable bumpers Hopefully they can reveal more than a standard battery capacity and motor size along with some good unique features. That will be the only thing that could sell it for me personally, because the shape of the EUC doesn't appeal to me at all, at least in the photos they have shown of it so far. Keep it round (imo), it visually communicates the simplicity and function of the whole device in the truest way. Still, I'm excited to see more and this is great news for all us in the UK, EUCs being developed more locally is only a good thing!
  25. *** THIS HAS NOW BEEN SOLD *** I'm selling my almost-new Ninebot One E+ Unfortunately I just didn't get on with it and couldn't master it, so it's up for sale. (Reluctant sale, as it's a superb piece of kit!) It's only a couple of months old, very low mileage, perfect except for a few small grazes on the body, pedals and shin-pad but only minor. It was £600 new, but I will let it go for £400 to the lucky buyer, given the minor grazes. I'm in Cardiff, UK. Buyer will need to collect. PM me if you're interested.
