  1. The Gotway Tesla 1020wh Model Open Box and Initial thoughts

    Then again, I've got 4 Gotway wheels and I'm having a blast. Most people are just enjoying their wheels. We hear about the problems but don't hear about all the people out there having a good time. It's human nature. We complain loudly when things don't go right but are silent when everything works.

    Gotway might never meet your expectations I'm sure they lose a lot of similar business. Such is life.
  3. Do you know something what happen about this

    Nice Too bad you don't have any nice scenery to compensate for the iffy weather

    I don't know what you tried, but apparently it wasn't an MSuper V3. The MSuper has an integrated trolley. Rather hard to miss it. And of course if you try a wheel in the Soft mode then you can't complain about it not being responsive like the V8. Fair is fair.
  5. Best place to buy Mten3?

    So all the people in this Forum (and elsewhere) who bought the Mten3 from the Green shop on Aliexpress are riding bad wheels I better throw mine in the trash The Mten3 is a fantastic wheel.
  6. Do you know something what happen about this

    Have you said before where exactly you live? I.e., please tell me where you live , as specific as you feel comfortable making public. I promise not to pull up Street View and start hunting for a stray unicyclist in the background

    You know, that movie trailer really does make Los Angeles weather look bo-ring. Sun, Sun, Sun, Sun, and more Sun. Yawn
  8. Do you know something what happen about this

    I'm sure you knew that I was being ironic. We Southern Californians know how good we have it, but wow, I didn't think it was already so cold in other parts. What a short riding season you have Who says the Mten3 has to be concerned about puddles...
  9. So you definitely need a new wheel then, something with comfy pedals. The MSuper is known to be one of the most comfortable rides out there I don't think there's a wheel with more comfortable pedals, but I may be wrong.
  10. Mten3 First Impressions / Review - BUY ONE NOW!!!

    Wow. I'm really impressed with that shipping time. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on the wheel. We sure are spoiled with our weather huh.
  11. Mten3 First Impressions / Review - BUY ONE NOW!!!

    Yes, the Green Travel shop on Aliexpress. You can buy one there immediately (that's what a handful of us did recently). I'm not aware of any resellers who have them yet.

    This is why if people have the budget they get multiple wheels to suit the kind of riding that they want to do any particular day. There is no one perfect wheel.

    It's not that the V8 doesn't perform well slow, but it takes a lot more effort. Wheels that are twitchy require much more focused energy to ride and this can get tiring when you are in the transportation mode of Point A to Point B. A wheel that just wants to move in a straight line is very comfortable to ride and is not tiring. When you jump on a V8, Ninebot, KS16, etc you are immediately in All Stations On Duty mode. It can be fatiguing. Don't get me wrong, these wheels are a blast, but when you're in the grind of using the wheel for purely utilitarian purposes, it's not the best scenario. On the other hand a wheel such as the MSuper V3 (and I imagine the KS18S) just wants to travel in a straight line. They are fantastic road machines yet are very maneuverable when needed. Imagine driving a manual sports car with tight steering (V8). Now imagine driving a luxury car with floaty power steering (MSuper). They can both travel the same roads, but which one will be more relaxing?
  14. I'm curious why you don't ride for longer than 45 minutes. You don't have places to ride? You get bored? Or is it physical? I'm not being judgmental, but am interested in knowing the various motivations that people have for riding.

    I just don't get the obsession that you guys have with rain
