KCo Posted April 30, 2015 Share Posted April 30, 2015 I work from home (no commuting needs) and don't think I would use an EU to go shopping or to the coffee shop. However, I want one just for fun. I see reviews using words like magic carpet, gliding, floating, best thing ever, etc...and I want one! I'm sure it's fun to ride to the train compared to walking to the train, but I'm debating if I'll use it just to go for a ride with no practical purpose or need to go anywhere. I skateboarded for 20 years, so I'm confident I'll eventually get the hang of it, but will the fun wear off after 1-2 months? If you ride it to/from work everyday, do you ever just take it out on the weekends around the neighborhood because it's fun? I feel like I can't stop thinking about it and am constantly reading posts, reviews, searching chinese websites, amazon, videos, etc...In order to maximize fun (speed) and safety (motor power), I don't think I want to go cheap. That being said, $800 - $1,100 seems like a lot for what amounts to a toy for me. I'm looking at: IPS T260 for $770 USD ($500 + $170 shipping to Chicago) http://www.electricunicycleonline.com/ips-t260-electric-unicycle-motor-power-10000w-waterproof-ips-unicycle-wheel.html IPS 132 for $1,100 USD ($985 + $114 shipping to Chicago) http://www.wheelgo.com/product/new-ips-132-black/ Any of your thoughts on the subject (fun vs. commute) would be appreciated.
