Hi Patuljasta,

Nice to se someone else from our country here, especially a lady :). Only once I met someone else riding the wheel here and that guy was from Argentina.

Congratulations on learning to ride in such a short time, most of us needed days or even weeks to get the grip of the wheel.

As steve454 suggested, for night riding get a good Li-Ion powered flashlight or bicycle light (at least 600+ lumen), which you can mount on the handle like this:

Wish you lots of fun riding and pozdrav iz Zagreba ;)

Thank you for advice for light.

Xebeche it's nice to see that i'm not the only one. In the store they told me that no one is buying unicycles so this is pleasant surprise :) . Don't know how is the situation in Zagreb but in my town everyone looking me like i'm from Mars and riding a space ship :D .

Ankle guards is something i need to buy asp (yesterday i twisted my ankle) so if you have any suggestion it will be welcome.

Greetings from me as an other new user too. When I started in May this year I also had the problem with aching ankels in the beginning. What helped me much was application of so called "bumper tape" on the corresponding face of your wheel. You can purchase it on most EUC shops, in my case it was included with my Ninebot One E+. It helps a lot and by the way you can improve control of your wheel if you also apply it additionally to upper calf area. With ongoing progress it will become less important because you will be able to control the wheel without contact of named areas.

I hope this link works:

Same thing here, but people are using many kinds of other personal electric vehicles (scooters, skateboards, e-bikes) around the "big" city, so EUC is probably not sticking out that much.

I also thought about getting ankle guards while learning (my ankles were dark-blue in the beginning from multiple hits and bruises), but in the end solved it by simply wearing sport socks with additional pair stuffed inside them around the inner ankles. Later with more practice you just simply stop hitting the ankles with the wheel / pedals. But as other people mentioned above - wrist guards, knee guards and helmet, are necessary equipment on the wheel. Don't learn that the hard way as most of us did :).
