If this isn’t okay tell me and I’ll take it down.

Just curious as to what the average age is of an EUC rider . I’m 29 but it seems like I’m the minority . Everyone I’ve spoken to seems to be mid 40’s or above . So just curious what everyone’s thoughts are. Why isn’t EUC more prevalent among younger people ? What age did you start riding EUC?

I can't get the link to work, but if you put age poll in the search function, there is one that was done Oct 2015 that is pretty interesting.   @esaj made it.

I’ll take a look, thanks ! I’m assuming a lot has changed since then . 2015 was when EUC fist emerged on the market right ?

I just hovered over your icon and went to the post you found, that's a different one from a couple months later, but even better than the one I found.   Not sure when the EUC first emerged.

Hmm. I’m really not sure either . This is the poll I found. But I guess you knew that. I thought I read once that 2014-2015 was when the first KS wheel came out . But GW came before KS I believe so maybe a year or two before that . Technology sure has changed since the first EUC came out that’s for sure .

It's money, quite simply. The sort of young crowd this would appeal to don't have this kind of disposable cash. And if they do, It's usually spent instead on that new phone or holidays.

It's the same with the electric skateboard crowd that I've talked to recently. Very few under 30.

As for the rollerblader/skater crowd....they're broke by definition! Lol they wouldn't be taken seriously by their peers if they had money ?

Sounds about right. I’ve yet to come across anyone around my age who rides EUC . At this point though I’d take an 80yo as a riding partner. I just want someone to ride with and none of my friends “have that kinda cash “ . ?

if i make it, i’m gonna be 64 April 9th. only over the 9bot’s age limit by 14 years. i know i’m not the oldest on the forum. i don’t mind in my situation, but i could see how that would be depressing. it’s only a number, don’t mean shit.
