  1. Sorry, but I won't be able to make it on Sunday. I'll be out of town this weekend traveling to Southern California. Hope you have fun though.
  2. I have the same wheel and the front is where the LED bar battery indicator is. You can tell this by looking at the tire and there should be an arrow on the tire showing the direction of forward rotation. To be honest, I have also ridden it in the opposite direction and don't notice a difference. I guess It probably would make a difference on tread wear after a long period of time. You should have gotten a seat with your wheel. I use mine all the time on long rides to give me feet a break. Learning to sit is a skill that needs to be practiced. I can sit and steer comfortably. I would go back to the seller and ask for this "option". Since upgrading the firmware from 1.23 to 1.25, the wheel doesn't connect to the app as reliably. I sometimes have to close the app a few times and retry before getting a connection. I'm hoping this gets fixed when Kingsong finally releases their updated app.
  3. Looks like Ian at SpeedyFeet has just posted his comprehensive Luffy review. For short distances, this EUC looks brilliant. This wheel be perfect for the other use-case since I currently own a KS18. I'm ordering one now.
  4. @Marty Backe Yes you're a legend. I believe that was us talking about your backward riding progress (or maybe your CA trail riding). We all informally agreed to be riding backwards at our next meet. I don't know how successful I'll be, but I think @Playarider can currently ride a few feet backwards. We'll see...
  5. @Ombre awesome video editing. Can't wait to show this to my wife, since she was the one who was calling/texting me and asking me "Are you done playing?", throughout our ride.
  6. Awesome ride today! My feet and legs are a little stiff, even though I sat for 90% of the ride
  7. My Version: @SuperSport and @KingSong69 all 3 wheels are beautiful. @KingSong69 I think a black and white ACM 84 V would make a nice addition to your family of wheels. May I ask what type of adhesive do you use to keep the bumper strips on without leaving a residue. The tape which originally came with the bumper strips for my wheel always left a hard to remove sticky residue.
  8. @Ombre Thanks for setting this up. I should be able to make it. Just let us know the meet point and I'll be there.
  9. Does anyone know of have this new Kingsong App. It's past mid March and I haven't heard anything.
  10. If you mean the pedals were tilting back, the Ninebot One E+ should start beeping and tilt back occurs ~ 13-14 mph. The first time feeling tilt back can be very surprising. There is no way (that I know) of disabling it. During straight parts of your ride, it is very easy to reach 14 mph. The only solution is to be aware of when this happens and slow down when you start hearing beeps, before the tilt back kicks in.
  11. You're very welcome! I'm glad you're enjoying the Ninebot One E+. This forum is awesome for getting advice and information. Keep practicing and keep us updated on your progress! You'll be riding your EUC from home to work in no time.
  12. Will you be making the new fast charger alone available? If so, how much?
  13. I also came from using the Ninebot One E+. It was my first wheel and found the the top speed of 13-14 mph (with tiltback) annoying. Also, riding more than 3 miles and my feet started to hurt. I was intrigued by the idea of sitting down to relieve my feet, so I opted for the Kingsong KS18. I can do very long trips with no issues. I do sit down frequently during the long straight aways. Sitting down is an additional skill that needs to be learned, but just like learning to ride the EUC, is gratifying when mastered. The only disadvantage is that it is relatively bigger (taller) than other EUCs. I'm not bothered by the size but it may not appeal to some people. Other wheels I considered were ACM16, Msuper V3, and Kingsong KS16S. If the size doesn't bother you, I would definitely recommend the KS18. It's a well built. solid, and powerful EUC.
  14. Ian (from Speedyfeet) and Jonathon go on their 100 mile test ride. Unfortunately Jonathon, riding his modified Msuper, does a faceplant ~ 20:05 into the video. It's very scary but the two of them laugh it off. I love watching Ian's videos but to me, Gotway = Faceplant.
  15. @jrkline Ouch! Not a graceful fall. That looked like it hurt a little. Since you all had smiles on your faces, I'm assuming you're alright. @abinder3 you're riding the KS18? I see no seat in the video. I think I would've used the seat during a long ride. @Marty Backe Thanks for sharing the video. If I ever make it to Southern California, I'll have to join you on your long rides. Looks extremely fun!
