JD Scott Posted August 16, 2017 Share Posted August 16, 2017 Location: Arizona Occupation: Student Weight: 215 Height: 6'3 In the last 3 years I have become entranced by Last Mile vehicles. The concept seems like the future of personal transportation which is a game changer in a place where everyone hates walking outside in any manner that isn't exercise or trying to get inside. I have had several phases in this Last Mile Hysteria I've had. First electric longboards. Bought a Metroboard Stealth for $1400. Fell off a Metroboard Stealth. Now Selling the Metroboard Stealth (or keeping it for friend riding). Should have known since last time I went snowboarding I separated my shoulder. Sounds like I'm not athletic but I've played sports my whole life. Boards just don't belong under me apparently. Next was electric scooters. Seemed like a great balance between something portable, fast, and safe. Lots of research later I came to the conclusion that with my size I should look elsewhere. Also too expensive for the ones that I would actually purchase. Afterwards was the Onewheel. Not quite like any other device out there but it opened up the avenue of offroading with these vehicles. Awesome revelation and makes for a far more versatile device. Too expensive. Now here we are at the current final frontier in my passion. Electric unicycles. They are frankly far more advanced than I was expecting when I started looking at them. 4 Deciding Factors 1. I want something I can carry into places without a whole lot of hoopla just trying to find somewhere to put it. 2. Something manageable for city maneuvering (although I fully plan to use it recreationally and offroad at times) 3. Something that fits my size and weight effectively. 4. Price. Need to stay sub $900. Every type of device has it's pros and cons especially for my size. Longboards suit my size but not my riding style. Electric scooters really seemed great but not suited for my size. The Onewheel became exactly what I was looking to try with the version 2 coming out this year. But it is a 2 month backorder from the company and the ones on Ebay are selling above retail of $1400. Also decided I was going to drop to a lower price range. Frankly the only reason I started looking at EUC's (feeling cool getting the lingo like a boss) is because I saw a few in my searches for other things. Once I found out they can go offroad similar to a Onewheel and actually go faster I was hooked. A single wheel seems to have the torque and motor qualities to be effective for my size. I have been doing a fair bit of gandering (not a word) and the other deciding factor are some deals available to me. Deal 1: ACM V2 67V 820wh w/78 miles $600 Deal 2: ACM V2 67V 680wh NEW $675 Deal 3: ACM V2 84V 1300wh NEW $900 Deal 4: MCM4 HS 520wh Few Months of Miles $500 Anyone care to rank the quality of those deals? Also any advice on what I should be looking for due to my deciding factors? This would also be my first wheel and I have never ridden one but I think the riding style is conducive to my physical ability. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
