Alt-Wheels Briefly #20


Inside: See what happens when someone upgrades from a 20-pound Gotway mTen3 electric unicycle to a 50+-pound Gotway MSX.

What Are Alt-Wheels?

Alternative Wheels.

Alt-Wheels are:
– Made for a single rider
– Smaller than bicycles
– Affordable
Portable

Electric skateboards, electric scooters, electric unicycles, the Onewheel, the Jyroball.

Alt-Wheels differs from “micromobility.” That’s all in this post.

UnderWaterCzechHunter, who maxed-out the speed of his Gotway mTen3 electric unicycle with a resulting crash (see Alt-Wheels Notes #20) upgraded to a more powerful and larger Gotway MSX. An over 30-pound weight difference! See what he went through:

British police are so calm, businesslike, and take bike lane invasions seriously! NYC’s police should take lessons. Especially when it comes to drivers in bike lanes. Ticket the hell out of them. Also note how the cyclist mentions he’s going to upload his cam footage for prosecution — a system we desperately need all across America.
