    Kite boarding, hydrofoil mostly, designing and building. R C helis. Juggleing, Human powered unicycles, slack line,cool toys in general
  1. Ok now I understand this just makes lowering and raising pedals easier and faster. I guess I am used to having to do this by hand, but maybe this winter will look into doing this on mine, thanks! ukj
  2. What am I missing? Why mount a magnet if not using metal shoe soles? Kids unfolding pedal? Sorry simply do not get what you are trying to do? ukj
  3. Does KingSong always beeps early?

    And that is a VERY nice feature and notice it much more with my new mother board and REALLY like it! Just makes PERFECT sense for SAFETY! Just might add as am here, now have about 1,000 Ks on my replaced KS14C motor and new M board, she and I are most pleased! ukj
  4. This mod seems to grip to my liking both barefoot, tennis shoes and boots. I did though make the side to side grooves wider. ukj
  5. I find that barefoot while idle, juggle practise in my living room affords the best control as in direct contact with pedals and out door like above post super stiff sole leather boots feel just fine. I would hesitate to "pad" pedals but if needed gel inserts and, or less tire pressure. ukj
  6. As with learning almost any new skill 15 min a day but every day is better that an hour here and there, and less than about 10 min of total concentration will be of little use. Also mentally visualising before bed aids much more than one would think! There is no doubt that the VERY best way to learn BOTH E U C and Pedal U C is to have 2 people at your sides palms up and rider palms down walking alongside at the comfortable arms length for all. I, we have taught many both doing this. Because it is sometimes hard to find willing assistants a tight rope over a smooth surface is also a good way. Look forward at the horizon, relax and "let it ride" knowing your mind and body can do this for you! ukj
  7. Now the question is just like Porsche, how many syllables do you pronounce! ukj
  8. KingSong Notice about buying EUC on Ali express

    Just to relay my experience. My beloved KS14c suffered famous bent, cracking pedal support making it not ridable after about 1,500 Ks. Thanks to some great posts here saying to buy local, I bought from the distributor in the country where I live. I emailed and called and after a little hassle was told to send it back but only in the original box which I am lucky to have kept! I referred to the post and photos again posted on this very fine forum to show that I, and others, believed this to be a factory defect that should be covered under warranty. They quickly not only replaced the motor, wheel but also have new mother board and she rides even better now! So yes in my case Kingsong and their now european distributor did take very good care of my situation thank you very much! ukj
  9. Who wants your old king song pedals longer?

    May we assume you are using about 4mm alu? For those of us here in Europe or other places to far to ship cost effectively, and for all the other D I Y guys out there, if you do not mind let us know exactly how thick and exactly of what grade of alu you found works best please. Thanks in advance! UKJ
  10. Any chance a little more info as I also ride a KS14C? Battery size? charge level? Grade of "steeper part of hill"? Your weight? Your speed beep and tilt back settings? Firmware version? I will say again that I have NEVER had a cut out on mine even V1 axle and mother board and now v2 new axle and mother board. I ride "faster" almost everyday and also climb hills at speed so this info is valuable for me and maybe others please! ukj

    Then why not edit your interesting post? ukj

    Did you mean to KPH in the ( ) ? ukj
  13. KS-14C Not balancing

    Not to be negative but informative, by using correctly the exact fitting quality phillips head screw driver, one will never strip heads. One needs to know how much force is needed to get a bolt, screw tight but not strip either the threads or head. If you find yourself lacking the good tool, do your self a favor and get one! ukj
