  1. Tesla “choo choo” - dirt clogging

    Should work for all other wheels, too. I would NOT recommend anything that involves water. Not only for the electronics, but most of all because dry dirt is always easier to remove than wet dirt.

    190 riders on a random day in early March! The French are doing it right. Meanwhile, here... I need to buy some rope (or move).
  3. @KingSong69 has a very good point, it's the batteries that may limit a wheel's possible total range. Not sure how mosfets or other electronics age, though, maybe it's them? I certainly wouldn't want to depend on a single GW board for 100k km, seems like a risky gamble E.g. ACM2 1600Wh is about 90km per full charge, so 1000 cycles (which is conservative, it's not like the batteries suddenly stop working then, they just get weaker) means 90k km, so 100k should be no problem. There are several people (commuters, naturally) who have between 15k and 20k on a single wheel (Gotways), so maybe there's a 25k wheel somewhere? @Pingouin reported some impressive ranges recently, and @Dancer reported a 13k ACM some time ago already.

    Solowheel ad (for V8). Not too bad, but they should have mentioned that IT'S FUN

    Not my video. Some nice drone shots.

    Hnnnnnnnnnnng I really want a watertight wheel. Imagine you could actually take it into the ocean, like knee deep, or cross a shallow river, with no worries that the wheel falling over might fry it. Or just jump into the nearest swimming lake with it and ride right out again After electronics that never fry on mountains, that's my #2 wish.
  7. New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    1500W motor is plenty for a 16 inch mid-range wheel (mid range because the batteries are and I don't expect 50km/h max, more like 40).
  8. New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    I think that naming it confusingly (as the above question shows, also VX is a nerve gas) instead of simply V10 is not ideal, but if the stupid iPhone does it, apparently so must everyone else. Let's just hope it does not have a stupid notch somewhere just for the sake of it.
  9. New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    Come on, that's simple. You preorder one of them. Some guy named Barty Macke (who just happens to live in the house right next to yours) orders another one. And Arty Hacke (who happens to live in the other house right next to yours) orders the third Or you just re-read and see that it technically never says anywhere you can only preorder one of the wheels, and hope that Jason wants to sell as much as you want to buy (which shouldn't be a problem).
  10. My fall...

    @WARPed1701D While still alarmed by your potential apostasy, I can understand where you're coming from. Florida terrain is (all-caps necessary) DULL, so much I've gathered from @Duf's videos (he really is making the best of what is there, which is depressingly little). Flat as a pancake, a few meters of elevation count as famous hills, endless samey suburban sprawl, boooooooooooooooring concrete slab walkways or just riding in the ditch on the side of the road, parking lots stretching to the horizon - must be mind-numbingly dull to ride. A EUC alone can't fix that (I experienced that myself). So my tip: go somewhere interesting to ride, if you have the opportunity. Some real hills/mountains, dirt walking paths, etc. You'll be surprised how much fun EUCing is if you actually have some interesting terrain to ride and some challenge and variety . No comparison of what you do to a mountain ride or some offroad adventure. TLDR: It's not the wheel, it's where you are.
  11. New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    No idea how it looks, how the specs are, how much the price is, but you can preorder it? Interesting
  12. My fall...

    Oh God, the details TLDR: Don't fall, people.
  13. Best Geographic Regions For EUC-ing

    Wherever there are good or interesting weather all year varied terrain, bike paths, dirt roads, forest roads, etc., being able to start right from home nice scenery maybe some other riders From the ones people do ride, it seems California isn't too shabby. Poor Marty, not being able to ride on the one rainy day of the season... these kind of problems show it is high on the list
  14. Ninebot One Z : Z6-Z8-Z10

    Why???????????? Soooooooo??????????? Lateeeeeee???????? Do they not trust their design and want Chinese beta testers first? Do they not want to sell? What's wrong with these people?
  15. New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    Wide tire. Could even be 3 inches. Nice thread. Nice pedal height. Still quite thin wheel, as it seems. Cool When?
