Cool. but you’re in the wrong forum. You want to go here:
It’s just slow “manual” unicycles, here.
Luckily you don’t have to go to a whole different forum. On this forum we also have a thread for Electric Unicycles. The video looks quite cool. Pity the guy who nearly lost his balance didn’t fly out of the bent. Would have been fun to watch.
I think you mean “acoustic”
Wasn’t it Analog
Also isn’t “slow” something subjective. There must be some on here that can outrun an electrical uni with a 36".
I doubt it. Some of the electric unicycles out there have ridiculous top speeds. They’re pushing 50 mph.
you’d have to be crazy riding that fast on something so unstable.
I am not going to repost it here because it is terrible to watch and I didn’t even know myself what I would see when I stumbled across the video, but I saw a crash with one of these high speed ones a couple days back, from a post on twitter.
He is going along all smiles, zero safety equipment, drinking from what looks to be a glass bottle, matching the speed of a car who is filming him. Then he hits some unexpected bump. I switched it off as soon as a could. Truly, truly awful.
Personally I would not want to go a lot faster than I can cycle. I am quite happy with this natural limitation. Although I sometimes wonder if the only real thing stopping me from being a bit faster on the 36" is fear factor.
If I want to go faster I am gonna use something more stable like a bike or even a kick scooter.
Yeah I think if we all had been speed junkies, we wouldn’t be on this website. Two-wheels is more stable and faster than one-wheel and naturally with electric help, you’d be even faster. But even if I had an EUC, I would just use it to go small trips or for commuting. I doubt you can brake fast enough either if a car or a kid crosses the street in front of you.
I already experienced crashing into my own kid with my 26", because she saw something and stopped dead in front of me, while I was looking another way. I flew right over her. Luckily the seat didn’t hammer in her head.
I mean, yeah they do not real appeal to me but I do understand this use case. They are small and compact compared other “micro mobility solutions”. Limited to a sensible speed, I get it. I don’t feel the need for one myself but I get it.
I really hate walking and running, so anything that can push me to where I want to go I want to try out. Unfortunately most electrical toys are illegal here. Even though I said I don’t like running, today I received my kangoo jumps, which I will try this avo. Last time I went running, my knees played up and then I found these. Hopefully they will make me run a bit faster too and if not, they look fun to play with.
How high do you think you could hop your unicycle wearing those?
That was one of my first thoughts too. I’d prolly have to put the seatpost up as well. I might just bounce right off and keep bouncing away into the sunset.
