  1. I love my new 84v ACM but I think the tire or wheel may be imbalanced and i'm not sure if this is a problem or if it can be fixed. When i lift the wheel off the ground and let it spin, it has a slight wobble or shimmy that natrally gets worse with increased speed. similar to how a washing machine wobbles on its spin cycle if the clothes are off balance. The wobble begins to be noticeable around 10-20 km/h Its not a side-to-side wobble, which is good. in other words the vibration is mostly up-down. the tire is tracking straight to a reasonable precision. I don't notice the wobble when i'm riding it. As long as my weight is evenly distributed, it's a smooth ride even at 35km/h, which is as fast as i've dared to ride so far. Does anyone else have this kind of wobble and is there any way to fix it? I don't even know if the imbalance is in the tire or in the wheel itself. I don't know if this is affecting my ride experience or if i should be concerned about it.
  2. Hi folks ! I am wondering about the quality of the ACM 16 trolley handle. Does it keep long term, doesn't detach after a while ? Is it handy ? I find a bit strange that you have to dig holes in the shell to fix the trolley. The MSuper v3 has a built in trolley. Is it a reason to prefer MSuper v3 over ACM or is the ACM trolley as good ? Thanks for your opinions
  3. Hi folks, Coming from Ninebot, I am used with firmware upgrades. Is there no firmware update functionality on Gotway ACM ? Cheers
  4. I'm trying to understand the warning beeps on my new 84v acm. I tried disabling the first alarm - when i tested it, when i reached 30+ km/h, i heard 3 beeps. (i occasionally heard single beeps also, which i shouldn't be hearing since i disabled the first alarm in the app, right? maybe this is a bug?) But anyway, is the second alarm 2 beeps or 3 beeps? and what's the final alarm? I thought final was 3 beeps based on several youtube videos and posted messages, but then i thought i read somewhere recently that the final alarm is 5 beeps, so i'm just trying to verify what's going on. I shouldn't be anywhere near my final alarm at 30-35km/h, right? This is with 90% battery, cool afternoon, flat pavement, 170lb rider. is it 1-3-5 beeps, or 1-2-3??
  5. Hi! Received my ACM16 820wh today. As I rode, I noticed some strange behaviours on my pedals, compared to my Ninebot S2. When I turn, especially at low speeds and sharper turns, the pedals turn forward to the point where I think I'm gonna fall off forwards. And when I ride fast (30km/h+), even without tiltback activated, the pedals lean back so it's uncomfortable for my feet and sometimes I fear slipping off backwards. I would like the pedals to remain as flat as possible during all aspects of my riding. I want to know if anyone else is experiencing things like this, or they did and just adjusted themselves, or if there is a way to update the machine somehow to amend this behaviour. I don't think a calibration via the app will do it as it would exacerbate the issues one way or the other. Cheers!
  6. Hi folks, my new(brand new from UK amazon) Gotway Acm just arrived and I have really big issue with that.. My wheel is not in the centre of the case. And it is really big issue because my pads is scrubbing to cover.. and wheel sometime hit the case when I driving on it. It is any way how to fix it? Disassemble and what? Can I move somehow centre of the wheel? Thank you And yes, it is V2 with old pads :-/
  7. Re-posting a SpeedFeetUK customer incident of Gotway ACM V2 / Monster pedal breakage: https://www.speedyfeet.co.uk/blogs/things-concerning-safety/gotway-acm-footplates-safety-check Gotway ACM Footplates Safety Check by Ian Sampson February 25, 2017 Failure of Gotway ACM Footplate A customer has reported the failure of one of their footplates. The style of footplate is the latest version of the ACM footplate. The model it was fitted to was the Monster 22" purchased late 2016. As always, Speedy Feet will announce any issues reported by customers to keep us all as safe as possible! SHARE this post to all those that it may apply to those it may effect (Button Below) We would recommend ALL riders check their footplates for signs of stress. (Simple scuffing and usual knocks are not part of this potential issue). Conditions of incident: Rider has done around 200 miles on the unit. Simply dropped off a standard size curb, has never done any stunts on the Monster (pretty difficult due to size of the monster!). Only ever used on road in the short distance it had traveled. Rider weight approx 100kg. THINGS TO LOOK FOR WOULD BE: 1. Stress Fractures (These would be actual cracks or signs of stretching of the metal, usually around points of stress, i.e. the hinge area). 2. Actual breakage / or splitting. Pictures of the broken footplate
  8. Connections that can easily be snapped apart in case of a crash. At least that is the idea behind it. The mount is 3d modeled in Fusion 360 and printed on my FDM printer. Wanhao i3 plus. The case is mounted in place with screws from the back and silicone to prevent water from getting inside.
  9. It's like a new monowheel. I am selling it because it's very heavy for moving it in subway. I am using monowheel only with subway. Wheel don't have any drop offs, only 50 km range and looking like a new. Very powerfull and high speed! Amazing feels guaranteed! I can provide real time video via Skype for real buyer, that it's fully working and in good condition. My price is 1200 USD+shipping (on your choise) or for local pickUp from Estonia.
  10. Hi, just moved to New York City and looking to buy a GotWay (not sure which model yet). Is there a place in NYC where I can buy it?
  11. I'm thinking about what my next wheel should be. I'm pretty much set on going up a notch for a 16", and it looks like Inmotion v8, KS16(s) and Gotway ACM are the current contenders for best 16-inchers of 2016. Seems like V8 scores here best for quality, reliability and low weight, less for ergonomics and range, ACM best for speed less for overall quality, and with the KS16 handle's great, but the "hello kingsong" is a show-stopper for me, but still hoping they'll finally add an option to kill it in KS16s... Anyways, quite a few people have compared KS16 to v8 (like below), but how does ACM compare to both? any first hand impressions? set the quality and small features aside, it looks to me like performance-wise it beats both v8 and likely the upcoming KS16s too. edit: found this comparison ACM to KS16, but it's not very elaborate edit2: a comparison of V8 to ACM by @Tishawn Fahie (brought up in the discussion below). it's a bit lengthy, but basically praising features and quality of V8, but still preferring ACM for its speed, power and riding feel.
  12. First: Changed the headlight SMD with about 80 Lumen(right) to 300 Lumen(left) output. The new one is the same like the SMD from Cateye Volt300. Forgot to make pictures before and after. Unfortunately... But it's really bright right now Now I just hope the heat dissipation works well enough Second: Add some SMD to the backlight. Second picture is the original LED strip. Third pic with the modification.

  18. Gray Goodbarn of Yorkshire Airwheels Ltd ( http://yorkshireairwheels.co.uk/product-category/gotway/ ) uploaded a manual for the ACM 16 and shared it on Facebook. It is in OpenDocument Text format which some are unable to open so I have converted it to PDF also for anyone that wants it. He has stated - "INCOMPLETED any suggestions appreciated."

  19. I've really gotten hooked on EUCs lately and just purchased 2 new 16 inch wheels. Today my focus was on the ACM and I thought I would give you my thoughts on this wheel. The wheel I learned on is the KS-14 ultra and the only one I can compare it to at the moment. Starting with the box, I have to say that I like what Gotway has done with their package graphics. The white Gotway box with its exploded view of the ACM is a nice clean and interesting look. Taking the ACM out of the box was just as impressive. The weight was not as heavy as I thought and the matte black simplistic look was one reason I pulled the trigger on this one. No bright multi color text across the case which I appreciate. The gray side pads are very soft and comfortable. This is one thing I can't say about my KS14. I purchased the v2 with 12 MOSFET and pedals with red rubber inserts. These pedals have a magnet which holds the pedal in the up position apposed to the King Song which uses spring tension to hold the pedals in place. I heard they now produce a larger pedal that has grip tape instead of rubber grips so I decided to purchase those. Before swapping the pedals I wanted to give the ACM a ride straight out of the box. I have to say that you will not get me testing the speed limit on this wheel. I feel comfortable keeping my speed under 20 mph and feel safer that way. I put the ACM in Comfort mode and this mode compared to the stiffest setting on the KS14. The pedals at times felt like they were tilting a bit too much forward. I may have to mess with the tilt calibration. I tried the sport or madden mode, but it hasn't felt right yet. Maybe it's because I'm use to the King Song. I went on an 8 Mile ride and I definitely felt the increase stability of the 16 inch wheel. Plenty of power on and off road. I was riding in warm weather, but had no issue with overheating. This wheel was a very enjoyable and fun experience. After 8 miles my feet did hurt a bit and were somewhat numb. I'm hoping the larger pedals will help with this. Overall my first impression of the Gotway ACM 16 was very positive. Makes me more curious about the MSuper v3 and how smooth and stable that must be.

Date: October 1, Saturday Meet up: Starbucks, 385 Beach St. San Francisco, CA Start Time: 8:30am, roll out at 9am. End time: 2pm.
  21. I am quite worried. My ACM has 21km on the clock and the rubber grips on the pedals are already showing sign of wear! In comparison I have been riding my Ninebot for around 9 months and 1100 miles with NO wear to the rubber grip. Once these grips wear too much there are bound to be accidents with people's feet slipping off the pedals. @Jane Mo @Linnea Lin Gotway are Gotway aware of this issue and working on a replacement please? I have linked a photo of my right pedal. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1mrwOQYqr4gRWxndFNyU1NzVkE/view?usp=sharing
  22. Hello, Looking for ideas to charge our wheels faster. i've seen that charge doctor 2 seems to be able to charge faster with two charger but to me (newbie) this still sounds a bit complex. I got an ACM16 and an MCM4HS and looking at the charger it's exactly the same: DC 67.2 1.75A So i guess my MCM340 is charging in about 2h30min, the ACM16 820mh is charging in about 6h. I am looking to possibly do a long trip with one of those but don't know yet which one i will take. I will probably do a lot of km and will need to charge on the road finding points to recharge, probably while visiting the area. MCM 340 will get me probably 25km-30km max (90kg + bag 5-8 kg) and then 2,5h to recharge fully ACM16 i believe will get me around 50km but will then require 6h to recharge fully (as mentioned in specs) Looking for doing 70-80km Anyone with a nice solution (no spare battery) would be great to be able to charge ACM16 faster. Would it be possible to use another charger for the ACM? If so what do you recommend? (i don't have spare battery) Or any other idea? Thanks a lot for your inputs/ideas
