    Ninebot One E+ since October 2015
    Gotway ACMs+ 1300wh since April 2017
  1. Cologne Köln with ACM

    Hi german guys, I see there is a discussion in german, but sorry I don't really understand and Google Translate doesn't work so well there. I plan a trip to Cologne. Should I take my Gotway ACM 1300wh or is it too risky to be stopped by cops and get a fine ? Did you get fines for riding an EUC in Köln or other German cities ? Cheers
  2. I want a ACM... but legal issues

    Sounds interesting for my ACM ... Is it AG Insurance ?
  3. I want a ACM... but legal issues

    I suspect, the day you have an accident they will say "yes but... your wheel... it's not legal" and you won't have any coverage. I would be keen to have an insurance too, but I am afraid they won't cover any accident anyway.
  4. I just saw one more this morning ... so 5 in total
  5. Approximately 4 so far, all in Brussels area. EUC riders is a spieces that you typically observe in the summer when it's not raining.
  6. Statement in favor of gotway for a change

    I fully agree. Many people use Gotway products and we mainly hear about the bad cases, I feel this a bit unfair. Happy customers don't have time to report, they are too busy riding their wheels I have been riding my ACM1300wh more than 700 km and it has been very reliable so far. But I avoid - Riding too fast (max 30kph) - Jumping off high curbs (i prefer to unmount and mount again) - Accelerating further when first alarm rings - Riding with less than 30% battery - I don't have very steep hills in my neigborhood. In case of steep hills, I would stop for a while every now and then to let the device cool down - When storing the device at home, I don't leave the wheel in the sun (by the window) for a long time - ... And my weight is under 70 kg, it makes it a bit easier for my wheel I guess By the way: I also never had bad cutoffs with my previous wheel, the Ninebot One E+
  7. I never had a motorcycle but I have been member of a karting club some years ago. Some would say that kart pilots are even worse than motorcycle drivers EUC is certainly more healthy than breathing exhausts from other karts in an indoor karting circuit (carbon monoxide levels are often far too high there)

    Hehe, don't worry, I am tall enough, it doesn't go that high
  9. Video review: Gotway ACM s+ 1300wh

    @andrewnyer Hi Andrew, the harness line is a windsurf harness line. Length of 24 inches. I bought it in a windsurfing store. Attaching it to the handle is a bit tricky. On one end, I could just pass it around the handle. On the other end I used a mini carabiner. On the picture you can see two carabiners, because I sometimes used an extra one to attach my helmet to the device. Currently I used this solution as well as the trolley handle. Trolley handle is very good to go around in shops, mall etc. But harness line is best if you have to quickly jump off and on, typically for passing some high curb edges. So I'll probably keep using both the harness and the handle.

    Yes I observed that it beeps much earlier when facing heaving wind. Once I was having the app open on my smartphone ant it was showing 25-26kph, already beeping. They possibly changed their algorithm recently.

  12. Lifting an ACM then turning off

    More scary: Ninebot One E+ can be turned off while riding it If a large insect hits the button when you are at full speed, you might fall.
  13. horn for euc

  14. horn for euc

    I saw many of such devices on geek.wish.com, but I didn't buy yet. I am looking for one that sounds like a bike bell.
