I'm not trying to be a jerk or anything, but that looks like the most unexciting self balancing thingy to ride I can think of. It just looks really slow and kind of lame. I like skateboarding a lot and I think the form factor is  super cool, but how boring in its execution. I think if they made it way faster maybe even with a bigger wheel and shorter tail/nose for better hill climbing with hooks you can scoot your feet under so you can jump over logs and shit while you're blasting through the woods smoking joints, now that'd be nice.

Haha. They make the hooks . They are called “flight fins”. But yeah I’ve never ridden one but my overall impression is that they seem slow and have bad battery capacities. For trail riding on the weekends maybe it would be fun but with a 7mi range (the new xr version can go 15) it’s just not practical imho. Plus at 1100-1800ish dollars it’s crazy expensive for what it is .

I've asked the question before about something like this - but the biggest challenge is, "How far would you be prepared to travel with your wheel?"

Though now I would ask the question - how did the Onewheel crowd overcome the same problem? Because with a plan for getting the wheels there, it is just a matter of picking a place and time, with enough lead in for people to plan for it all...

And for the record - I'm in for it!

And @Rehab1 we could go for that Guinness world record ! :thumbup:

I believe the Guinness recordholder currently belongs to the group in Paris, France. But hey, records can be broken.

What makes this so difficult is that we can't fly with our wheels. So most people would be limited by a few hundred mile radius, I suspect.

We'll probably have better luck organizing regional meetups.

ROAD TRIP !!!!

You're the one person that is not constrained by distance. You'll make any location we pick :)

Most definitely! :D

And being near a Tilted Kilt wouldn't hurt either. :rolleyes:

Or... We could have it in New Zealand... So all of the snowed-in northern hemisphere riders could have a chance to thaw out...  :thumbup:

I can pick up about 11 members in the company Gulfstream.  ;)

It’s my I understanding that there are no issues taking a wheel on a train. And we can always have our wheels shipped I suppose . And here’s a thought about the shipping process : As a cyclist I have 2 hard shell boxes that are are designed specifically for shipping or transporting your bike to events ..someone should create something similar for EUC . It would make shipping much safer for our precious wheels . And maybe we’d het less grief with airlines too .

If it were one weekend out of the entire year ...say something we would look forward to and plan for....I’d travel pretty much anywhere in the US. Fights are getting increasingly less expensive. There’s Comic-Con  , float fest , its time we have something too!

Yes! Let’s! I’ve seen videos on Ewheels FB page of them riding through casinos on EUC . @Jason McNeil, they were cool with this? If so this would be the perfect destination. Desserts for some off-road fun and plenty of urban/casino riding to boot . Sounds awesome ! 

*Plus there’s gambling and girls,girls,girls. ?
