pArmitage Posted January 23, 2016 Share Posted January 23, 2016 Greetings, um... electric unicyclists. (Is there a better name? Cycleers? Cyclnauts?) I have made the decision to venture into this strange, unfamiliar land within the next two months. Although I will likely start with a smaller wheel, I plan to eventually move to use of a Gotway EUC. Once I have graduated to their use, I plan on owning both a 14` and 18` Gotway, both for urban and off-road use (including tricking), though I'll start off with the 18` since my training EUC will likely be ~14`. I have many questions related to this significant expenditure, however, before I made the dive. So, my questions are mostly about the Mspeed 18`. And yes, I know the MkIII is releasing sometime this year. Thanks for beta testing it for me, but I want to go with a tried and proven off-road model, at least until I find out that there's a V Speed model for the MkIII. 1. Theoretically, since the system has regenerative braking, wouldn't it be possible to recharge the battery by turning the wheel off and pushing it with the trolley handle? 2. Has anyone successfully found a way to safely get 12v/5v from the battery? I'm especially interested in at least USB. Any resources on how to do this properly? 3. Has anyone found a better tyre than the stock one? I'm looking for a good off-road one. A good 18" with a 2.5" width is good, right? Has anyone tested a wider tyre? 4. I need to maximize my battery capacity. I'm guessing that no one's yet beat 1Rad Werkstatt's 1035 KWh deal? 5. Any recommendations for a saddle? As in, how they're usually made, of what material, etc? 6. Do we know the maximum load? I won't be putting more than 75kg on it, but just in case. 7. Surely there are examples of EUCs failing, like broken pedals or something? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
