zuckermania Posted September 15, 2018 Share Posted September 15, 2018 Hi everyone! I recently bought a Glide 3 as my first EUC. Unfortunately the protective cover shipped a week late so my beautiful new wheel is all scratched up. No big deal... it's my first wheel, scratches were inevitable. This thing is so much fun! After one day I was able to ride around the parking lot. Day two was around the neighborhood. Day three I was free mounting with 40% success! I strongly recommend to people just starting that you learn by doing... just accept the fact that you are going to bang up your wheel, leave the safety of the fence and just go for it. Riding slow is a bit challenging, but riding above 5 mph is very intuitive. Don't overthink things, you will teach yourself how to turn and ride slowly by doing. I've had a number of slow speed wipeouts but all of them I was able to just run them off. That's another learning point... if you're going down just run it off. Let the wheel fall. It's just a wheel. Some questions for you veterans... I'm still a little nervous to be looking at my phone while riding so I don't know my top speed. Does the wheel give an auditory warning before tiltback? I ask because sometimes I definitely feel the wheel tilting back but I can't tell if it's just resetting itself to level position and I can ask it for more speed without a cutout. On the (garbage) app I slid the top speed up to 19 mph. Is there anything else I can do to optimize the ride? It's kind of fun to play with the lights! Last question... how do you start learning to ride backwards? I think my next step will be getting 100% with free mounting and slow speed riding, but after that I want to ride backwards! 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
