    Ninebot One Z : Z6-Z8-Z10

    #Team msuper X 18L is nice, but low battery kills it. Also don't like the looks. But it will definitely be a quality, powerful, iterated on wheel with good sales, for people who don't want a GW.

    That was the idea. Staying under 1kW for whatever on-paper reason. I'm just fishing for possible explanations here

    The English ("self-balance car") makes me think it's a Chinese exporter at best.

    KS14D performance on hills

    10mph isn't going to be a problem

    KS 14s cutout!

    Yep! Never ride a wheel that had any unexpected or unresolved strange behavior or failure. If he really wants a 16S, at least this is the perfect excuse for a return.

    Da kannste nach Lust und Laune überall rumfahren. Strasse, Radweg, La Defense (autofreier Bereich/Fussgänger+Radler-Zone) an Horden der Militärpolizei vorbei. Interessiert keine Sau.

    German Discussion Group

    Hallo Leidiges (und ausgelutschtes, frustrierendes) Thema, aber da sonst keiner antwortet, mach ichs kurz. Auf mehr hab ich keine Lust, einfach die letzten 50 Seiten lesen, 95% gehts nur darum. Deutschland eben. Sorry. Es gibt hier 2 Positionen (meine Darstellung): EUCs sind in D nicht vom Gesetz erfasst und alles geht. Siehe hier und das dort erwähnte Rechtsgutachten ("Grosskopf", der formuliert es etwas eindeutiger als die Polizei, die sich natürlich alle Optionen offen lassen will wenn es nicht anders geht). So wie ichs verstanden habe ( ggf. falsch) kurz gefasst: Regelungslücke. Nach EU-Verordnung (unmittelbar bindend) gibt es selbstbalancierende Fahrzeuge. Damit sind EUCs keine Kraftfahrzeuge und keine sich darauf beziehenden deutschen Gesetze treffen auf sie zu. Und selbstbalancierend ist in D nur ab 2 Rädern reguliert (Segway, Hoverboard). Also: steht nicht im Gesetz, Problem gelöst, gute Fahrt. Manche Leute glauben nicht an Grosskopf (hat noch keiner getestet) und fangen das Diskutieren als Nicht-Verkehrjuristen an, kleben sich Nummernschilder ans wheel (und andere Leute setzen das dann mit Motorrad/Mofa gleich!!!), holen sich mit Halbwahrheiten in den Anträgen (Segway, Stehroller) teure Versicherungen, die im Zweifelsfall eh nicht zahlen, und was weiss ich. Kein Kommentar dazu Ersteres ist meine Position (hat man halt mehr davon) und falls mich wirklich irgendwann die Polizei anhält (ggf. garnicht so leicht für die), ist das zumindest ein Argument. Wie es weitergeht, sieht man dann. Empfehle dir das gleiche. (Ich habe keine Lust auf weitere Diskussionen, also falls hier jemandem die Finger jucken, ist mir egal, ich werds nichtmal lesen.) Viel Spass beim Fahren

    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    It's a selfish request, but as ENVY BURNING WITH THE HEAT OF A THOUSAND SUNS (or something alike) was mentioned here recently, that's what I'm feeling a bit

    My Inmotion V10F Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    Why would the gyro sensor not know its tilt just because a motor is turning somewhere else? Curious. Could be that the bumps and twisting of the wheel's position overwhelms the gyro?

    I don't know. Maybe they lie (in some way). Maybe it is 800W on paper but feels much more stronger in reality. Maybe the wheel is an absolute joke. Maybe something else? I don't know. All I know that @Jason McNeil's initial impressions seem to have been quite good. So time to wait and hope for the best

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    It looks nice, but: Must be the least ergonomic design I've ever seen. Your ankles and shins sure will love those metal bars Especially in connection with the moving suspension. Cushions are for women! Useless extra weight? Sure! Barely any space for battery. A wheel like this can't have only 800Wh or so. Pedals might as well be made from ice, as slippery as they look. (Ok, might be an afterthought in this early concept phase.) The motorsport/automotive/combustion engine design style is just off. Electric unicycles are different and should have their unique look, determined by their technical design, and not look like some unspecified part of an old motorbike fell off. The Ninebot One Z is showing the way in this respect (one does not have to like its design, but it is not a derivative of something unrelated). No fake cooling grills, pistons, ... , please. For real offroad (mountains, going up and particularly down steep inclines) 18 inches might be too unwieldy? I'd instinctively go with 16 inches instead for torque and controllability (less is too small for bumps and general unevenness). So in my view, good call Inmotion didn't build this. While I love the general concept of an extreme offroad/power wheel, this would have needed a massive amount of further development (euphemism for "Start again, and make sense this time!") to get a realistically good result (it is an early concept, I don't blame it for its shortcomings, but it's more like a concept on what to avoid). In fact, the V10(F) is already halfway there. All is needed is doubling down: V10 is basically the V8 shell (widened) with the tire pushed downwards out of it, to give greater pedal height. (I'm getting the impression the side panel molds from the V8 were reused and the design was made to accomodate this). So? Push the tire 5cm further out of the shell. Even higher pedals and ground clearances. That also gives more space for battery on the top. Make the body wider so the sides can have batteries too like most other wheels, and that's plenty of space for these sweet Wh. It's already 16 inches with a strong motor. Make it even stronger (and wider?) if you like. Evolve electronics, cables etc. for even higher stresses. Add suspension (might be easier said than done). Or skip it and go with big, high friction, easily leg-grabbable side cushions for better hold on the pedals when needed. That would work better than the above concept. Call it V12 and call it a day By the way, @Bobwheel really great to have company representatives (the bosses, even) have such good community involvement!

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    Since the wheel body itself (= the gyro sensor) isn't suspended, not necessarily. Everything should work as usual, at least in theory. The only thing to test is whether the suspension can produce self-reinforcing oscillations in forward backward tilt due to some automatic reaction by the rider, so if that creates some kind of wobble, maybe an adaption is needed to prevent uncomfortable riding that the suspension/rider might mechanically introduce. @Joey Serrin did some self-builds with suspension, and I don't think he did (or even could) modify the firmware.

    Since he has TWO ACM2s, @Marty Backe how about taking one up the overheat hill?

    Ninebot One Z : Z6-Z8-Z10

    Pretty sure the lie for regulation reasons. We know 20km/h isn't going to be true. The unique form factor and design still is neat. Compact, wide, nice! But the pedals are definitely too low, in these cirles the guy does in the video, they already nearly touch the ground. Offroad that isn't going to work very well.

    My Inmotion V10F Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    It does not seem to be a "problematic" issue with the core electronics. More like "button does not work" or some other small part has given up, but nothing representative of a weakness in the wheel. Just bad luck. But we'll see what the reason is.

    WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT I NEED TO KNOW!!!!!!!!! edit: nvm, found it.
  17. meepmeepmayer

    MAX and some Sherpa

    What Hunka said. Also, why do you manage to build a suspension with EXACTLY the right argument, and the "professional" manufacturers give is hard flat metal sheets that send one flying off in real bumps? Also, are you willing to give us some (preliminary) specs (*cough* battery sizes *cough*) for your wheels, or is this way too early? Finally, two words: high pedals!
  18. meepmeepmayer

    18l presale specs

    There are better V10(F) prices in other Euro countries than Speedfeet, though. An unusual situation, as Ians GW prices tend to be the best.

    My Inmotion V10F Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    The pedal height on the V10(F) is a real revelation. Some people just have no problems doing turns on flat pavement and wonder why others complain, but your video shows exactly how much better high pedals are.

    The Flying Finn, Dismason

    Hi! There's a surprising overlap between pilots and wheelers, there are at least 5 pilots here. Maybe it is indeed the sensation of flying that connects both. And as with planes, there's only "perfect" or "plummeting to your fiery death" (faceplant for EUCs), not much in between. So I always recommend wrist guards as the minimum gear you should ALWAYS wear while riding. (Knee guards and helmet are the next tier. Then comes everything else) Enjoy, and keep us updated!

    Let's wait until he pushes his upcoming msuper X up there. That's what I'm waiting for. Gotway wheel power + greatly improved electronics (see 100V Monster board) = potential for unprecedented mountain greatness!

    Congratulations on the not msuper X niiiiiiiice new wheel! Wouldn't mind one myself Spot on, Marty

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    Wow these pedals look huge. Are they also longer than the standard GW/KS other ones? Length counts more than width here. And the tire is huge as well. Looks like an 18 incher next to the 16S.

    KS14D performance on hills

    Oh, you mean the voltage drop under load that shows as lower battery %? That's normal. I've never heard of it increasing over time during high load, though. Are you sure this happens, or do you just see the increasing voltage drop during acceleration, and stop before it reaches some equillibrium? Does it really increase constantly until you hear beeps? What does an app (Wheellog does 1% steps) say?
  25. meepmeepmayer

    KS14D performance on hills

    Ehm wut? Are you maybe drunk? This makes no sense. Never heard of anything like that. You can't accelerate all the time anyways. Going up with a constant speed (current) is better than slowing down and then accelerating again which needs a current spike each time. One can argue whether a 14D with 2p battery can produce enough current for what OP wants, but... wut?
