That was my first wheel as well, absolutely loved it. Almost sorry I sold it :( . Get some protection, please.

Yeah I love it too, I just wish I got the 680wh version.  But I still did 20 miles today with a charging break in between, and when I carry the wheel up an occasional steep hill to save battery, that extends my range significantly and gives me great exercise.

Ok had the first real crash today. Was riding at night in a semi-lit public square kind of area that has good smooth and modern roads. Had been doing some tricks pretty confidently for 1-2hours. Then on a piece of road checking out the place I hit one of those sharp pointy boxy small speedbumps nearly at fullspeed around 25km/h. The same day earlier I had also pumped the tire up to a high pressure. That contributed to sending me flying. Anyway, I managed somehow to roll on my shoulder like a stuntman. It wasn't planned. I happened to be wearing cycling gloves with palm pads and a thin summer half-cowhide motorcycle jacket.

I just got up and kept riding. The wheel had to be restarted a few times to get the gyro stabilized (pedals wouldn't come level with the pavement). After arriving home I couldn't see any damage on jacket, jeans or gloves. Wrists are fine, palms are a bit tender and the shoulder just has a bit of muscle pain as if I hit the gym yesterday. Not too bad.

So anyway, I'm joining the crash club. The only other indicent I ever had was also in low light conditions and also alone. I better get some better lights so I see where I'm going. ?

Glad you're alright, and yeah, it's nice to get the first crash out of the way. You'll probably be more sore tomorrow.

You actually joined the crash club the day you first stepped on an EUC (we all did)... It's just that you have now progressed from provisional membership to full.

Full membership...thats funny.

I feel I'm also one step closer to unlocking the superpower of always setting off metal detectors naked. ?

Not yet.. not yet... maybe never! /a

Internal metal has it's advantages... My mobile reception has never been better (4G and WiFi) - but only when I use my "reinforced" arm!

Quickly find some wood to knock on so 'maybe never' remains hopeful.
