    Agility and power. Good stuff.

    Yes, but why did your heart skip a beat?

    I think the battery would have to be in pretty bad shape / very low or the firmware programmed too late for a short tiltback angle adjustment to trigger the BMS to cut off. It probably only takes a little more current to bring the pedals up. Maybe if the rider accelerates at a maximum rate all the way up to the tiltback speed while the battery is low, that might create a cutout if it tries to tiltback? I've sped to 22 kph pretty quickly, and the tiltback always kicks in safely for me. You would think that it should be possible to program the wheel so it could tilt back safely no matter what situation occurs. It seems like the Ninebot One E+ at least seems to handle this well with 10 km of range to spare. I've never had an issue where the tiltback did something unexpected throughout my battery range. Where's the Mten3 video? Oh the Facebook one. Just watched it. https://m.facebook.com/groups/819824711409186

    Cool! Let's see if others are interested

    Did you see that video @Jason McNeil and @Joey Serrin posted on the 325 mten3? My heart skipped a beat.
  7. Today
  8. The yes, no, or maybe thread.

    Yes, but not immediately. The muddy water got all into the battery and control board areas of my Firewheel and I had to clean it out. Have you ever been pulled over or stopped by police while riding your EUC?

    I primarily turn off tilt-back as a safety measure. I'm sure you've participated in the conversations around that theory. I'm pretty attuned to how fast I'm going based on the wind speed. Granted this isn't very effective at low speeds, but I can tell easily when I've exceeded ~20 mph, so I don't need tilt-back to warn me.

    I think people are worried about an edge case (that probably would never happen on a ninebot) where you are close to the wheel's maximum speed and you accelerate past it quickly and the wheel tries to tiltback but no longer has enough reserve power to tilt you back. It then shuts down because that attempt to tiltback pushed it over the edge into cutoff. Now arguably if you were that close to the edge you are asking for it anyway but it is possible that you could be saved from a cutout if you did not have tiltback on in that scenario.
  11. Did you have your wheel stolen?

    BTW, I noticed from the motor code, and then another picture, that this is actually a KS16S. I wouldn't tell the seller that.
  12. Did you have your wheel stolen?

    Potentially a great deal. Given that it's used, missing a charger, and has an unknown provenance, I wouldn't bid more than ~$600. Concerning whether it's stolen, post a question to the seller. I wouldn't straight out ask if it's stolen, but ask where it came from "because you're concerned about how it was used and why it was sold". Also, I would ask for the mileage. And perhaps ask how exactly it was tested (beyond hitting the power button).
  13. Did you have your wheel stolen?

    It could be a pawn shop selling the wheel, and that could be a typo. I wouldn't jump to conclusions too quickly. It certainly could be hot. Too bad there isn't like a global serial number registry so we can keep track of these things for people wanting to register their wheels. I haven't heard of any stolen wheels for quite some time on the forums. You would think the first thing someone would do is to post a thread up here if they get a wheel stolen so we all can keep an eye out for it. Serial number is right there smack dab on the pedal in the one photo. Besides @Pingouin's attack, this is the last one I've heard about. There was also one golden one stolen IIRC way way back. Thefts probably occur more often than are reported though.

    Maybe it's just the way I ride, but I haven't had a BMS shutdown ever or wheel related faceplant on my Ninebot One E+ with it's 320 wh battery. It only has a 500W motor I believe, but maybe it's because it limits me to about 20-22 kph? It tilts back above 21-22 kph, and its never let me down going up hills or zooming quickly up to speed. On low battery it tilts back very rapidly which can be alarming, but you just ride through it. That's why I don't know why people dislike tiltback. It seems to be a good way to alert the user to a low battery or too high of a speed situation. There is also like a gradual tiltback as well as you approach 21/22 kph. Maybe @steve454 can confirm this as sometimes I think it's all in my head. It's like a whoa, Nelly, hold your horses - you're going too fast sort of feeling.
  15. Did you have your wheel stolen?

    Hey guys, I'm super concerned. I'm always checking ebay for unicycles. I noticed this one. A few red flags went up for me. 1. This is referred to as a "KongSong". Anyone who has bought a unicycle probably knows who manufactured it. 2. There is no charger. A dead giveaway someone stole this thing. A person leaves it at home or has it on their person because they know they are going somewhere. I'd love to bid on this thing but I know it's probably stolen. Is it yours? https://www.ebay.com/itm/KingSong-Electric-14-Unicycle/152795702370?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D41375%26meid%3D21d741bf05454506b1d12d1a0a6abbb0%26pid%3D100033%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D8%26sd%3D152795702370&_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042

    My endorsement was strictly based on his remark that the wheel will be used for distances under 10-miles and his wheel budget was limited. Also, I don't think I would suggest this for any wheel other than the Mten3. Although it has the bones to move fast, it's wheelhouse is slow-speed fun. With all your talk of fast shutting down BMS's, I think I'm now afraid to ride any of my wheels below 50% Thanks for that!

    OMG. Kids learn fast. Congrats! I'm sure the next step is that they won't be able to fight the urge to go fast. IMO, you have to keep that speed slow. A face plant hurts like a MOFO. Ride slow and lessen the chance. You don't need to experience that.
  18. Mten3 First Impressions / Review - BUY ONE NOW!!!

    I didn't think that, that's not your style. From my experience with a small battery, and lower power levels, its shocking how fast the BMS will shut you down, during a power demand spike. I found your 325Wh endorsement quite interesting in light of your recent post referring to 630 and 840 batteries as "small". If I knew then, how much fun EUCing is, I would have spent more and got a bigger battery to start with. I didn't find this forum until after my wheel was ordered. I remember well, all the doubts with pulling the trigger on buying something as wild as this seems from the other side (the side that doesn't ride) we are "The Side that Rides"

    That was quick. It took him a 'whole' day to learn to ride. Youth!
  20. Mten3 First Impressions / Review - BUY ONE NOW!!!

    BTW, I didn't mean to come across as doubting your experience. On my Gotway wheels the only beep I'll ever hear besides the on/off beep, is the 3rd alarm. And I never hear that. I mostly ride in the 18 to 20mph zone with short spurts up to maybe 25mph. Since all of my wheels are very powerful, I essentially never hear beeps unless I'm in the low battery (<15%) realm.
  21. The yes, no, or maybe thread.

    Yes, but that's actually a porcelain baby crib Have you ridden an EUC into water and then had problems, due to the water? (not marital problems, etc)

    Thanks for all the suggestions...his pads and helmet were being delivered that same day but he couldn’t wait to try the wheel. Riding on grass and learning to ride on slopes: Making figure 8s:
  23. Mten3 First Impressions / Review - BUY ONE NOW!!!

    Yeah I've got all sorts of alarms set. Remember why I call her Lassie? Because I can't understand anything shes beeping at me. There's so many beeps. However, in this instance, IF there was an alarm, I was hearing it as I was flying through the air. It was as instant as the Tesla wipe out, no warning. Just like @LanghamPs 2 foot stool, rope around ankles, friend yanks rope, scenario.

    I'm saving that one for the blooper reel
  25. Battery replacement

    I'd say open up the other side of the hoverboard and check to see where the black wires lead to. I think my wheel only had one battery pack if I recall correctly. I haven't opened it up for a couple of years so it's a little blurry in my mind. It looks like the little PCB board must be some sort of BMS judging by all the extra red wires. I wonder if there is another battery pack on the other side? Unless maybe they go to the main control board or something. Maybe some more photos would help. It's sort of like asking the bomb experts which wire to cut, but then only showing them certain parts of the bomb. Hard to say when the photos only show so much. There are also some hoverboard repair companies if you do a search. The battery that you purchased might not be totally compatible with the hoverboard if its design is very specific and unique. Unfortunately there likely isn't a hoverboard design standard so parts might not be universal in all cases. https://hoverboardrepair.com/ https://www.streetsaw.com/products/hoverboard-repair-service http://www.elitehoverboardsusa.com/
