    Hey man, you're doing fine. Everybody moves at their own pace in this hobby. It's not a competition. People do this for fun, not to win prizes.
  2. MTen3 Tubeless Tire Conversion

    They might work fine, and thanks for pointing them out. But personally, I'm tired of the angled valve stems that poke their noses out so far in the slipstream that they are just begging to snag on something. I'll be doing the tubeless conversion soon with shorty valve stems. You know what they say about how the nail that sticks up higher than the others is the first one to attract the hammer? I think that's true.
  3. Almost better!

    Good luck, buddy. You'll get through this gauntlet, and on the other side is nothing but net.
  4. Gotway Mten3 Tube Replacement

    No thank you, I can't solder! But I suspect that in the fullness of time, you'll have my tube issues and I might have your battery issues. Somebody should found a Gotway survivors group .
  5. Gotway Mten3 Tube Replacement

    Well, that didn't last very long. On a simple ride around the neighborhood this evening, the Mten3 lost enough air that I had to stop and lug it home. I'll give it the Slime treatment first, but if that doesn't work, I'll be doing the tubeless conversion. It's becoming clear to me why Gotway stopped manufacturing these wheels with tubes at some point and went the tubeless route. They should send everyone who bought the tubed version $100 to cover the cost of tools and materials for having to make the conversion on a DIY basis, not to mention the aggravation.
  6. Mten3 First Impressions / Review - BUY ONE NOW!!!

    Thanks @Marty Backe , nice video. I don't really use my Mten3 in the same way, so I probably won't ever add a trolly handle, but it's always fun to watch you solve a problem.
  7. Help with Gotway App connection issue

    @Marty Backe , you're right, of course. So, I went with the flow. Bought an Android tablet, downloaded the appropriate apps (WheelLog and the non-social version of the Gotway app from the downloads section of this site). Et voilĂ , I'm back in control of all the parameters on my Mten3, and all is well again here at casa radial.

    Good job! Stick with the rails for a while. When I was first learning, I used the hallway in my house to go from the foyer to the kitchen and back. Very similar to your setup in that I was never that far away from something to grab on either side. My progression: hallway, grass, asphalt basketball court with poles for support at the beginning and ending points of each run, riding free on paths and streets.
  9. . And FTR, I think you've chosen wisely in sparing the knife in his case.
  10. Sorry, I'm late to this thread, but I went through something very similar trying to purchase my Mten3 from G&FTS on the aliexpress platform. No way was I going to provide all that personal information that they were insisting on. So, I asked the seller if we could do the deal directly via paypal and that worked out fine.
  11. Help with Gotway App connection issue

    Sure, I can buy an android device just so I can run an app that someone other than Gotway had to develop, but it still irritates me that I should have to. Gotway goes to the trouble of developing an iOS app, and then they hose it up so people like me can no longer use it and get stuck in a catch 22 scenario. It's irksome, and I'll probably go on complaining about it until they get around to fixing the app or until I just give up and move on to a vendor that does a better job with customer care.

    Lol, just read the release notes for the iOS Gotway app update that broke everything: What's New in Version 2.4.3 Optimize and fix the Bug;
  13. Help with Gotway App connection issue

    Well, I'm still stuck. I have no idea what password I might have used when I first set up the Gotway app. So knowing that the mystery fields in the updated app are country, phone#, and password does me no good. I've tried all my usual passwords, but no joy. If I ever show any indications of wanting to do further business with Gotway, please stage an intervention. I didn't buy the wheel so I would have to also buy some crap Android phone just to operate it.

    Or like this. Grass worked for me. I did some riding on asphalt when I was first learning, but that stuff is pretty unforgiving. I think I had better luck developing basic skills by riding on grass. It was more challenging with the surface irregularities. But it saved a lot of wear and tear on my starter wheel and my body parts.
