The following text is completely repost from GJHS' original post on Electric Unicycle Forum which is sponsored by GearBest.

Hi everyone.  I'm a complete beginner and been practicing with my Pinwheel T1 about a month.  GearBest.com approached me and I asked if I would be willing to test and review a unicycle for them to kick off them sending unicycles to their US warehouse and starting to expand their selection, carrying more brands.  I have asked them to customize and upgrade a few lights in the past for the Mountain Bike forum MTBR so I've worked with them before.

They asked me if I preferred the TG T3 or the Pinwheel T1.  After doing some research, I chose the T1 (http://www.gearbest.com/exercise-fitness/pp_103711.html) because it has a higher capacity battery than the TG and a removable/replaceable battery pack which I thought made the most sense since the battery probably would be the first thing to go. I could also buy/carry an extra pack to double my range if I needed it.

The Pinwheel specs: its a 14 inch wheel with a 350w motor, a 180wh battery which again easily slides out to use as a back up battery, though I doubt that will ever be needed since I want all the distance I can get.

Pedal tilt back happens close to top speed and for me, in the beginning took some getting used since cruising along it felt as if I was tilted backward a bit.  Speed control is a series of beeps like most EUs and I haven't pushed it past that too much yet. I did give her all she had one time and almost fell forward, so lesson learned.  Top speed is 16-18 KM/H, in my unscientific GPS app testing, it speed beeps at around 9 mph.  As a beginner, finding that sweet spot, top speed right before beeping has been a challenge though I'm getting better at finding a comfortable cruising speed. Somehow I always make it beep when crossing intersections, guess I'm in a rush to get across :D 

Charge time is 2 hours and the that should get you 18km, though in my testing with my 160lb weight on mixed level terrain, mostly flat,  I'm getting 4 miles to one battery light lit and then some light riding till the battery beeps. I think my beginner speed up, beep, slow down is affecting this. I have tested a fully charged battery and a downhill run with out any shut down nor has it shut down on any high speed runs.  I did push the battery a bit to see how long it would go before beeping or shut down and after hitting a rut and falling, it wouldn't start up until charged.

Falls with the T1 are simple side falls without it speeding up and taking it off.  It normally just falls on its side, beeps and stops running, which is why most scratches are on the pedals.  One time it did spin it place when I tried to grab it.  I have also made the beginner mistake of keeping one foot on and trying to save it which has sort of sucked my foot in a bit.  My advice is to get off complete when you fall, don't try to grab it.

I'm happy with the T1, it has performed great and taken a beating. Its very easy to learn on, smooth riding and minus maybe a higher capacity battery, it does all I need it to do .  My only complaint is the latch for the battery cover, which if not fully engaged will cause the cover to pop off if you fall. Oh and one plus, on my yellow model, the color doesn't scratch off.
