  1. Ninebot One Z : Z6-Z8-Z10

    Going down, sure. Going up the extra wheel size would help, especially the extra width. It'd make higher curb drops softer too.
  2. Ninebot One Z : Z6-Z8-Z10

    Still looks sketchy. Autoplaying a non-pausable video in 2017?! That aside, this thing looks amazing. Wonder what was happening in the video where it's dropped and doesn't seem to start balancing again...
  3. Kinda silly having both. It seems to differentiate on your activity feed though, but only by the icon which appears, the text still just says the generic 'reacted to'.
  4. WheelLog for Inmotion - Development

    Edit- Woops, I missed a few pages of replies, so my comment may not be relevant. Will edit if the newer versions in the pages I missed work. Whoa, nice! Pretty much nothing worked before, but on your version it's almost all functional! I'm also getting the crash when trying to start logging. The app tried to restart, says logging started, then crashes again and has to be manually reopened. There also seems to be a connection issue. I can connect fine (leaving password blank), but every 10 seconds or so the app pops up a 'connection lost at' with the current time. A few seconds later it starts working again, but ultimately repeats the cycle forever. It seems like it may be a firmware thing, or part of the geoblocking. I haven't updated since I don't want the geoblocking work around to stop working. What firmwares are you guys running? Mine says 1.1.1009. And did you buy from official dealers?
  5. V8 does low battery tilt at over 40% charge.

    I'll give that a try. I thought it was triggering the warning by going to quick on low charge, but after a bit more testing it's really random. Watching the app it'll jump around 2-5%, but I'm guessing that's just inherent in how it measures charge. Still, even after 4 attempts to get it drained past 35% it's reporting near 50%, given it'll even turn on that low (took 2 hours to power on trying every 10-15 minutes).
  6. The Photo Thread

    Despite the batteries seeming to hate me, I rode up a small mountain today!
  7. Only had the wheel since April with around 90 miles on it. It's made it below 30% maybe twice since getting it, but now it's refusing to ride much past 40%. Today it did the tilt back and power off thing at 42%, then showed over 50% when turned back on and ridden for a minute, but ultimately turned off with the tilt back after a few minutes. I tried to drain it low in case it's some sort of calibration issue, but it's refusing to even turn on after ~35%. Any more trouble shooting ideas before I bug the aliexpress seller? Or am I just missing something about how the wheel works?
  8. I got robbed on my EUC !!

    Glad you're alright and thanks for sharing. Reminds me when I was on a night ride a few weeks back. Had a group of guys ask how much the wheel cost and I hesitantly gave a ballpark range. Immediately realised I'd just told them it's more valuable than most cell phones, so I sped off as fast as possible. Won't be saying a price to strangers late at night, especially after some of the recent local events (riots, a stabbing, and a loose gunman all in just 1 month).
  9. making your euc tick

    Hey look, it's me! That actually doesn't sound too far off from the bicycle+baseball card version. It's a bit high pitched is all.
  10. Does feet pain go away?

    I actually found that when the wheel wasn't balancing quite right, like after a sharp corner, that the peddles being tilted slightly back helped a lot. I think part of it is just the similarity in foot position to on a bicycle, but also that learning forward is leveling the feet more than tilting. The inmotion app has a tilt setting so maybe play around with that a bit.
  11. Might be worth check out the browser plugin stylish. There's rarely themes for non-mainstream sites, but for things like reddit, youtube, or wikipedia there's quite a few prebuilt themes. I also run a chrome theme that sets the new tab to a darker color, but sadly the way chrome renders pages causes short white page before the theme takes effect.
  12. INMOTION V8 Bluetooth

    Only figured this out a few days ago. Was trying to turn the headlight on while carrying it, then noticed the LEDs swapping on and off instead. I have almost on reason to swap the light pattern, so that shortcut really helps in being able to just hop on without using the app. Just been using it to check total miles lately.
  13. V8 charger overheating and whining

    That price is a lot more affordable than other options I was looking at, thanks!
  14. Stand on Top Trick

    The music really helps set the mood.
  15. I'm not having luck with chargers it seems. The one in the box was DOA, and the replacement seems to be overheating. I'd only ever charged it from ~60% at the lowest, but today I got down to 30%. Plugged it in and about an hour later it starts making a really high pitched whine. The app is reporting it as 98% charged now, but the power brick is crazy hot. Measured it with an IR thermometer and it read 70 C. That was after 5 minutes or so unplugged, so it could have easily been 75+ when it started whining. Anyone else experienced a crazy hot power brick? I should probably just get an aftermarket one at this point. I'm not sure what works well and safely. As much as I like the V8, the geoblocking and these chargers issues are bringing me close to saving up for another wheel.
