  • Electric Unicycles maybe?... What do yoose reckon?


    These things can do 80kph for about four hours: Cost's $1500 US.
    I don't see them replacing dirt bikes: I do see them supplementing.
    He's a faithful drone being his puppy: That's a new technology too.

    Looks fun for riding around town & mtb tracks... utterly useless where I spend my weekends though.

      Obviously anything new is good, what we all do here is well over 100 year old samesame , hardly anything has changed apart from ramp angles on mx tracks. But is that real or a photoshop..looks computer generated.

        Nah; I can assure you; it's not computer-generated. There's also/other vids on YouTube.
        Utterly useless in some places; I do agree: Yet-where it's suited: It truly-looks excellent?

        I'd envision that for our Wife & Kids to fool-around a campsite: Whilst we go-get serious.
        That looks like skill & talent involved; to-ride that-well. Satisfaction isn't-always brute HP.

        My-living fully-independently/permanently/unaccountably in some van; remains my goal.
        I also seek/require alternative transport & if-that's also fun; that's so-much the-better too.

        Van-living isn't for everyone; I'm not sure it's for me either; my birthday today; suck & see.
        Half-century on this planet; it's time I pulled my finger from my arse; no-more bosses-rule.

        Edit: I'm apparently 55yo. It broke/dawned yesterday (the third). Yet-yoose suss my point?
        I would hope so: I'm mulling over navel-gazing atm: I respect yoose bums... I'm perplexed.

            Got shown one of those in our store a couple of years ago. No one could ride the thing, we all called it the suicide machine

              I bought a 300cm unicycle for my son... He wisely opted out... It's laying 3m from me atm... I've opted out too.
              In my limited understanding (maybe wrong?) These gadgets are akin to Segway Mall-Cops? I maybe wrong?
              Kinda regardless imo: When you do get it sussed...There's mega satisfaction in that... It's a fair achievement.

                I'm pretty ignorant here & I'm not ashamed of that; maybe I should be?
                I'd assumed the thing would have a gyroscope; like the Segway thing?

                If it's asking us to ride it-like a true Unicycle; that's a big ask; who can?
                In fact; I'd doubt anybody-actually could; so it must have a gyroscope?

                  I think you need 2 wheels for a gyroscope to work in those , there isnt any correction /power sideways on a 1 wheeled thing .

                    3 axis even better. Apollo program worked that out 60 years ago.

                          I momentarily mulled over my gyroscope notion: Which turned out to be spuriously superfluous:
                          It's more-likely a sliding (conductive) mass/weight (on a level track) atop a rheostat type-device:
                          As a weight-falls, via-gravity, it-then alters resistance: Slide on-track to moderate/reverse motor.

                          Given my very limited understanding atm; it's all about how level, or-not, the foot-plates are:
                          If the plate is tilted back; the bike will go-back; conversely-when tilted in-a forward-direction:
                          Thus: I guess an ankle-foot-leg-angle would-be absolutely crucial & might take-time to suss.

                          Quote = wazza 'What happens if you brake hard, or even moderately? Instant face plant.'
                          The motor has the same power to decelerate as to accelerate; stay within it's limits & live:
                          You likely couldn't lock-up the tyre by leaning back: You may come close on a quality one.

                          The below is a pretty crap video: It's all I managed to find in my lazy five minutes of looking:
                          Imagine that-where the current at-centre is zero: More it-moves in either way = more power:
                          Move/slide/fall more/further back-equals proportionally more power-back & likewise forward.

                            Graces amazing machines" did a segment on self balancing bikes, the Honda uses steering movement to make the bike stand on its own, the BMW seems to use some type of pump. [amazing need to watch a kiddies show to learn more than the so called up to date /latest dribble]

                              I will look up Grace's Amazing Machines poper & I'll let you know if it's any good.
                              Electric unicycle's do climb a 50 degree incline; which represents braking-power.
                              In other words; imagine force-required to do that... It's-the maximum braking-too.
