  1. KS-16S - Handle not staying locked

    I agree, having it open all the time would be worse. I've got some luggage that has this problem Frustrating that the idea of integrating the trolley into the carry handle is not more reliable. I guess for now I'll be trying to carry it less in hopes that the other side continues to work for a while. The last thing I want to do is open this wheel. Maybe I'm not being adventurous enough, but I just want it to work and not have to be a wheel mechanic to keep this thing functional. Fingers crossed that the one side can hold up for a while and then when it gets too cold to ride anymore I'll tinker with it...
  2. Today one side of the handle on my KS-16S started to unlock from the wheel when I picked it up. I could still carry it but all of the weight was being held by just one end of the handle. It seems like only a matter of time before the other end also unlocks preventing me from picking it up. Has anyone else has this problem? Does anyone know how to fix this so that when I lock the handle it stays locked? I'm assuming there is some spring inside the unit that is not staying in place?

    Ahahaha, holy crap that's the funniest thing I've read in a while!!!
  4. DarknessBot - iOS App

    Great point about the watch. That was definitely something I've been considering, but hadn't thought about the wrist protection getting in the way
  5. DarknessBot - iOS App

    Yeah, I guess? I don't have many examples of functionality from the lock screen, other than date, time, running timer, and maybe a remote for your music player? Maybe that stuff is just too embedded into the iOS and @Ilya Shkolnik can't tap into that area of the phone, but again, just wanted to ask...
  6. DarknessBot - iOS App

    I see what you are saying about the notifications, but no, I was actually talking about showing the info on the lock screen like if you set a timer for 10 minutes and then wake your phone up; you can not only see the time of day but also the running timer...maybe that's not possible to show the info from the Darknessbot app like that, but I'm not looking for a static notification, but instead a dynamic or changing display from the lock screen that shows up to date speed or battery life. Again, maybe it's not possible, but I thought I'd ask
  7. DarknessBot - iOS App

    This is one of my favorite threads! I can't wait to see what @Ilya Shkolnik will be able to do with this app next! One thing that I would love to see is the ability to put one (or more) of the panels of data on the phone's lock screen. This would allow me to simply "wake" the phone, like checking what time it is, to see the speed I am traveling at or the battery life left in the EUC. Currently I need to unlock the phone and go into the app in order to get this, which takes too much time when riding. Quick viewing access to speed and or battery life (or a panel of my choosing) would be awesome! Thanks again @Ilya Shkolnik for all of your great work on this app! Can't wait to never open my KS or Inmotion apps again

    Right on, I'm well aware of the risks and was kidding about volunteering him to test it out Thanks @Ilya Shkolnik for your continued development of the app! Looking forward to some more integrated Kingsong 16S functionality

    Haha, pretty sure my son will...as soon as he finds out that his V5F could possibly go faster, he's going to be pumped. I would love to know what the implications are of pushing those wheels faster than what the manufacturer recommends or has as a restriction in their Inmotion app...

    Looks awesome! Great work
  11. First ride

    Congrats @Catlord17! So happy that things are starting to come around for you on your wheel. Now the fun begins
  12. We should probably keep the comments in this thread largely related to feedback for @Ombre and his publication, but if you start a new thread on this topic (ex. "handle cutoff switch vs. automated sensor cutoff") let me know. It might be interesting to see what people's thoughts are on the type of innovation you are eluding to.
  13. Something tells me this will somehow be copywritten by Inmotion/Solowheel now and we won't see it on other wheels but I agree 100%. Started on the Inmotion wheels and it's the most incredibly useful thing to have and infuriating each time i have to turn my wheel off just to lift it up a set of stairs, over a large curb, etc. Once you get used to the button handle it seems ridiculous that other manufacturers don't have it on their wheels...
  14. Couple of KS-16S Questions

    That seems like it would be the solution to the problem that @Marty Backe has had with his KS-14C...nice to see the evolution

    Holy crap that's cool.
