  1. Location: Arizona Occupation: Student Weight: 215 Height: 6'3 In the last 3 years I have become entranced by Last Mile vehicles. The concept seems like the future of personal transportation which is a game changer in a place where everyone hates walking outside in any manner that isn't exercise or trying to get inside. I have had several phases in this Last Mile Hysteria I've had. First electric longboards. Bought a Metroboard Stealth for $1400. Fell off a Metroboard Stealth. Now Selling the Metroboard Stealth (or keeping it for friend riding). Should have known since last time I went snowboarding I separated my shoulder. Sounds like I'm not athletic but I've played sports my whole life. Boards just don't belong under me apparently. Next was electric scooters. Seemed like a great balance between something portable, fast, and safe. Lots of research later I came to the conclusion that with my size I should look elsewhere. Also too expensive for the ones that I would actually purchase. Afterwards was the Onewheel. Not quite like any other device out there but it opened up the avenue of offroading with these vehicles. Awesome revelation and makes for a far more versatile device. Too expensive. Now here we are at the current final frontier in my passion. Electric unicycles. They are frankly far more advanced than I was expecting when I started looking at them. 4 Deciding Factors 1. I want something I can carry into places without a whole lot of hoopla just trying to find somewhere to put it. 2. Something manageable for city maneuvering (although I fully plan to use it recreationally and offroad at times) 3. Something that fits my size and weight effectively. 4. Price. Need to stay sub $900. Every type of device has it's pros and cons especially for my size. Longboards suit my size but not my riding style. Electric scooters really seemed great but not suited for my size. The Onewheel became exactly what I was looking to try with the version 2 coming out this year. But it is a 2 month backorder from the company and the ones on Ebay are selling above retail of $1400. Also decided I was going to drop to a lower price range. Frankly the only reason I started looking at EUC's (feeling cool getting the lingo like a boss) is because I saw a few in my searches for other things. Once I found out they can go offroad similar to a Onewheel and actually go faster I was hooked. A single wheel seems to have the torque and motor qualities to be effective for my size. I have been doing a fair bit of gandering (not a word) and the other deciding factor are some deals available to me. Deal 1: ACM V2 67V 820wh w/78 miles $600 Deal 2: ACM V2 67V 680wh NEW $675 Deal 3: ACM V2 84V 1300wh NEW $900 Deal 4: MCM4 HS 520wh Few Months of Miles $500 Anyone care to rank the quality of those deals? Also any advice on what I should be looking for due to my deciding factors? This would also be my first wheel and I have never ridden one but I think the riding style is conducive to my physical ability.
  2. Hey everyone, The time has come. I have now put 350 miles on my MCM4 and have decided to upgrade to a newer better faster bigger longer lasting wheel. So here goes.................... First things first - I know some of these wheels have suffered from the Gotway Oscillation issue. This wheel will be coming from Jason. Have all these concerns for the most part been resolved? Now that that's out of the way here goes: I have heard much praise from everyone regarding the ACM, I see lots of people reporting that it is their favorite wheel. I have actually ridden the ACM a couple of weeks ago during a group ride. I can say with my limited time with it it was very enjoyable and felt very stable and fast compared to the MCM4. I have never ridden the MSuper. Here are my questions: Will there be a noticeable stability difference from the MSuper to the ACM? In my area there are many uneven roads and potholes so the 18" wheel could be a big help. My current size/weight is 6'1" 220 lbs. I am on the heavier side for EUC riders. Bigger wheel may be better for me since I am on the heavier side. From others experiences what are the top speeds of both all things being equal? I'm not looking to max it out all the time and risk my safety but being able to ride at a sustained speed around 15-20 mph would be preferable. Currently my MCM tops out at 17 mph due to my size and weight and yells at me constantly. I also have found it a lot of fun taking my EUC on trails intended for mountain bikes. I would think the 18" wheel would handle the terrain better, however, the higher torque from the ACM might be nice as well. I also enjoy long trips. Either choice would be the 1600 Wh variant. The minor difference in price would not be a deciding factor. Lastly, I am going to need something that lasts. I'll be dropping close to $2000 on this wheel and I will need it to last me quite a while. Thanks everyone for any input you can provide.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.

  6. Hi all. Just an update on where I am with my recovery, Monster and ACM. Sorry if I waffle on. Recovery - My eye is still very sensitive and I'm still missing half an eyebrow though the battle scar is pretty impressive. My chest seems to have stopped hurting so much when using my left arm/moving about/not comfortable. My right wrist was feeling OK until my eldest daughter went to, jokingly, knee me in the leg earlier when we were being silly and my natural reflex was to block her... OUCH! My right arm and elbow had been quite good until I stupidly decided to unbox my Monster again, finally, and open my ACM to see what's up.I still can't straighten my arm and both my wrist and elbow click/crack when I move my hand/arm about. I'm hoping I haven't done anything to my neck as near where I had my op and where the problem area is has been a bit more painful than usual and my neck cracks and crunches as I turn my head which I think it did before the accident but not as much. Monster - It's been sat, boxed up, since Ian sent it back to me just as I had the accident. When I turned it on it started to roll backwards slightly. I realise this is likely due to the weight of the tow batteries at the back. When I put it up on blocks to see if it needed calibrating possibly it span up to full speed even though straight - I forgot to note which way the wheel span. Maybe it needed calibration after moving the parts from one shell to another? or maybe it was like this previously and I didn't notice? Anyway after a few attempts the Gotway app finally did it. It's currently on charge and I'm going to be going slowly on it initially to make sure all's well. Ian says the wiring is fine and everything connected/fitted right but take it easy just in case. Hopefully all is good and all three batteries work fine. I'll know more when I am able to get out and test the range after this charge. ACM - I shouldn't have, because it hurt my wrist and arm, but I couldn't wait any longer to take a look inside. For some reason the pedal isn't for coming off, even though I've taken them off previously, so I struggled to get the side panel off then back on after checking. It looks like the axle has snapped? The nut doesn't seem loose but the axle wobbles quite easily. I can't see any board damage so think it needs a new motor all together? Speedyfeet don't have stock of the motor in, currently, but I've asked Ian for a quote on him replacing it for me so I know it's done right. I am weary about self repairs after the Monster arcing incident and the ACM already throwing me off due to a fault. I'd be happier knowing it was done properly by someone with plenty of experience. I might also email Graham Goodbarn of Yorkshire Airwheels, where I purchased it, in case he is confident enough to do the repair, as he was fantastic with my early ACM issues and offered to do the board change previously but looking at the website I don't think he has stock either. To be very honest, after the accident and with the time that has past since, I am getting more and more anxious about riding again. Especially the bigger and heavier Monster. I am going to go look for some protective gear this week, ready for going back to work next week (if I've recovered enough to ride) as I want to get an idea of the sizes I need before ordering some decent stuff online. Ian said he's getting some D30 gear around Christmas and I think that's the way I want to go. My only awkward decision is the helmet. With how I fell from the ACM, and seeing the video of the girl falling from a standard unicycle and hearing the sound her face made, I know a full face is likely the best idea but mostly when going to and from work I ride at a quite sedate pace along the pavements - if someone was to see me on the pavement with a full face helmet it may draw more negative attention - especially from police? My longer rides out with my girls, around the lake and along the canal would probably be ok with the full face. In the two years of riding without a serious incident I was confident I knew what I and my wheels were capable of and felt secure and safe BUT after the ACM fault and reading about peoples other recent Gotway incidents with the newer models I don't feel safe now BUT it's my mobility seeing as I can't walk or ride a bicycle due to my problems so I need to get my confidence back. Sorry for the waffle, thanks for reading and any advice that may follow
  7. Hello folks, I've been riding my Inmotion V5F+ for a about year now with total mileage approximately 5100km. Recently, I felt like I got bored of this wheel. To be more concrete, the speed and range doesn't satisfy me anymore. I feel like I want more. So I've been looking for a replacement and thought about Gotway ACM 820wh. Would be cool if you could answer my questions! 1) How far can you get with 820wh version? Will it give a significant increase in range comparing to Inmotion V5F+ (480wh). 2) How nimble is the ACM? Again, comparing to V5F+. 3) What is the maximum safe-cruising speed that can be achieved? On my V5F+ I can hit 25-27 km/h. 4) Is the speed increase that noticeable between 25 km/h and 35-37 km/h? How does it really feel? 5) Do you feel Gotway ACM the same way as Inmotion or there's a new learning curve involved? As for now, that's all =)
  8. After having great experience with MCM4 HB 680 , Just purchased ACM v3 s+ 1600 and A monster 1600 which was unfortunately departed gotway in mid may so It probably has defected PCB. I am in contact with JaneMO (who is very nice and responsive to me all the time) and she confrimed that she will send me a replacement board for the ACM but it will be a MSUPER v3 84volt PCB, I wonder if this will be a problem to use on ACM. I will be glad if you experts can comment regarding this. Monster confirmed to have safe PCB and I understand it is 100 volts. Furthermore, I hope to modify these wheels once they arrive, and I would like to keep you updated as I really enjoy reading your inputs and expereinces. ı really appreciate any suggestions for below or in addition. Possible mods Im thinking: -Mud shield -Digitial output volt meter -Internal thermo meter and blue tooth speaker ( no space on acm) -replacing lights with high lumen ones -PCB Fan if missing on ACM / there is 2 on monster. -Stabiling axis nuts and re organize cabling with flame proof covers -Damage Protection for the wheel (any innovative ideas?) At last, I had a chance to visit both gotway and kingsong in Shenzhen, I agree with most of you regarding quality differences etc, but also accept that we are in love/hate relationship with Gotway. I think they can be better If directed more via end users like us. I hope to keep you updated regarding my wheels here. I would like to also add that both Jane Mo from Gotway and Tİna from Kingsong are extremely nice well english spoken and responsive people. Here's some of the pictures from our trip in 2016
  9. I installed this switch so i can turn off the alarm. It's so i dont have to hear the alarm all the way back home from somewhere when my battery is low. Once ive heard the alarm i know to take is slow and not push it.
  10. Hi, a few months ago I bought a MCM4 and I'm loving it. Looking to upgrade to a bigger GotWay product, something like ACM or mSuper, I think monster is too big for me. Which model do you think is the best to ride in the city. Also, I want to give my MCM to my cousin, but the shell is a little damaged. Is it possible to replace it?
  11. Folks, please let me know your opinion about our first try at the GotWay unboxing videos... I know there's plenty I can improve, and hope to do so in the upcoming videos! 22" GotWay Monster Electric Unicycle - unboxing 18" GotWay Msuper V3S+ 84V 1600Wh Red - unboxing 16" GotWay ACM S+ 84V 1600Wh - Black - unboxing Upcoming unboxing: Luffy! Also, please visit our online store: EUC.NYC Thanks! Dmitry (646) 88-382-99
  12. Hello everybody! I was recently introduced to the forum by @Marty Backe through his you tube channel (thank you!) and I've been reading posts like crazy . A little bit of background about me. I live in Arlington, VA (about 15 min away from Washington DC) and I'm a college student and a business owner of a pet sitting company (https://www.idogdc.com/). I'm interest in finding a more efficient way to move a lot around the city from house to house for work than a car and to combine/substitute it with the metro (subway) as its not very reliable and moving through the city by car and finding parking can be a nightmare. 1. Do you think this is the most efficient way to travel around the city from client to client without having to require a car and the hassles that come with owning one?? (gas, insurance, parking, tickets...) 2. How long did it take you to learn how to ride it? I'm a pretty thin but tall guy at around 6'4" and even though I only weight 180 lbs (approx. 80 kg) I'm looking to bulk up and start eating a bit more healthy after I'm done with school and I'm aiming for the 190 - 200 lbs mark, so the more power the better (I'm looking for something around 50 miles). My shoe size is a 11-12 so again the bigger pedals the better. I narrowed my initial search to the V5F+, V8, ACM and the MSuper V3. First impressions are that the Gotway products look a bit more rigid overall without that flimsy plastic in the body and pedals of the Inmotion that even though I looks nice seems to be a scratch magnet (correct me if I'm wrong). Between the ACM and the MSuper V3 I'm pretty undecided. On one hand the "extra" wheel of the MSuper looks like would be more comfortable and better with pod wholes and in a straight line but its not necessary for moving around the city. The bigger wheel also adds extra weight (don't mind it much) and limits the maneuverability that seen to be better on the ACM, although the built in trolley for the MSuper is a plus! The bigger pedals are a big positive in the MSuper. The ACM body seems to be better against scratches and in my opinion is more visually appealing, that being said how easy is to paint them, specially the horrible red accents on the MSuper? I've seeing videos and the mods and paint jobs of some members but I'm not sure how different it would be for each unicyle. 3. Which one rides better and which one would you recommend me to best fit my needs?@Carlos E Rodriguez and a lot of people recommended the ACM in a previous post (copied here as well) and I know @Marty Backe loves his ACM but he recommended the MSuper for me, thoughs? 4. How would you describe the ride? From the outside it looks like a mix of skiing and biking 5. What seller do you recommend? Thank you in advance guys!!!
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. Hi folks, Coming from Ninebot, I am used with firmware upgrades. Is there no firmware update functionality on Gotway ACM ? Cheers
  16. 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??
  17. 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 :-/
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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?
  22. 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.
