  1. Hi All, I'm a new rider to the Inmotion V8. It took several weeks to practice before I can actually go around the block. Anyways, now that I am actually riding beside the humming sound of the motor, I am hearing the tire scraping the cover as I ride. I'm riding with the cover on but did not felcro under the pedal. When I properly, felcro the cover under the pedals the scraping lessened. But I'm still getting some scraping of the tire and the cover. The scraping gets worse on paved road versus cement sidewalk. Is anyone else experiencing this? Any adjustment I can make? I've taken the nail clipper filer to try to file the cover down a bit but maybe not enough. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
  2. I received my V5F+ yesterday and have had a lot of difficulty getting starting learning this thing. I've watched several videos and tutorials and did a lot of research prior to its arrival, and am still struggling to get on the thing comfortably. I've seen a few showing a person practicing by putting one foot on the pad and balancing while slowly bringing the other foot up, but this put tremendous weight against the calf of the mounted foot and is a bit painful. After 2 days and hours of practicing, I still cannot mount without it hurting my calf and wobbling all over the place trying to get upright. Additionally, the process of mounting and dismounting puts a lot of stress on my calf, to the point of my calf being bruised a very dark shade of blue and purple. Is this normal, or am I doing something wrong? Also, most videos show it touching both calves, but my calves physically cannot touch the pads at the same time because I guess I'm slightly bow-legged or something. Is that an issue for stability or is it workable?

  4. In an effort to see how many miles I can get out of a single charge, I'm working on draining the battery of my inmotion V8 down to zero. Most of my rides are short, 20 minutes-ish, and roughly 2-4 miles, so it takes me all work week to get there. Anyway, I'm getting close, and just wanted to know if there are any warnings to look out for when riding at a low battery percent? I've been reading other threads, where other wheels get "tilt back" when they are getting low on battery or maybe start to slow down. Do these things happen with inmotion wheels too? When I finally get down to zero % will the wheel just turn off, leaving me with no stabilizing help? Thanks in advance for the help, I'm just trying to prepare myself a little so that I don't end up with a fantastic "face plant" story or worse ...
  5. Hi. This is my third euc and my first quick review. After a couple of mounts and 669,9 km. think I can show how is riding this euc and gonna try in English, not my native language, pls forgive my bad grammar. The incorrect information from inmotionIberia of max speed and range where it says 40 km/h and 40km but may say 25 km/h and 30km piss me off. But the price was ok for me (700€) I don't want the refound offered and decided to keep it. The advantage of that euc are many, good looking design, useful handle and lift swich. Bright front light, back light blinks when brake. Very comfortable due his curved shapes and hi padded sides. Hi pedals position are damn good for off road. Impressive torque, good autonomy and content weight. Need to improve the pedals and trolley quality, those get loose or comes with it from fabric (trolley). The inmotion app is full of busg. The battery position on top rise the gravity center and makes really hard for boomerang or coin flip tricks. The body shell are quite slim, that not help to keep it straight in hi speed pushing with the legs. They haven't grip at all to pull it up in jumps, foots slide unless you put the extra pads who inmotion gives in for ankles protection. I think is really good for cross due his hi pass pedals and big torque. Not to heavy to do tricks, and enough hard to not break if you don't do it well (unless the trolley bar and the pedals). Sorry but I can't compare it against other in his league, I only have other cheap "oneWheel" Who can't be compared. I want to make an extensive review with my top range, hi slope climb, max turning inclination, better pedal angle and more. Please, make your questions and comments, would be nice gather a great data base for all euc together
  6. Ok I'm new to this EUC thing and I must say that my V8 (my first EUC) went through a tropical thunderstorm and came out with a free wash and no issues otherwise. I didn't ride it through puddles deeper than an inch to be safe. I thought of hopping onto a bus mid way, but I figured I was already damp from the rain, so I just finished the trip on the v8. It was a 6km journey averaging about 24km/h and it rode well in heavy rain. And in case, anyone is wondering, yes, I was soaked through and yes I'm really impressed.
  7. Does anyone know whether Inmotion has any intention to produce an 18 inch wheel? If not, could someone tell them to look into it? I would looove to experience their snappy, direct, riding mode in an 18 inch version...Merci!
  8. Are the Inmotion devices such as the V5F and V8 UL certified? Have there ever been any reports of fires or battery explosions with their products? I've been trying to decide between a V5F+ and a Segway S1 which is UL 2272 certified, but the Inmotion website doesn't mention any sort of safety certifications. The V5F definitely has preferable specs to me, but I'm concerned about safety after seeing so many reports of hoverboard fires.
  9. Hello EUC Family. My name is Oswald Ruben Valentine-Lopez and I am a proud owner of an INMOTION V5F. I'm now at 133mi in 33 days. My first EUC impression was of someone riding a Solowheel when I worked in Seattle a couple years back and immediately understood this product has. Recently I had been commuting 5mi to and from total and wanted to make life easier on some days. Pushing thru the learning curve I was riding in no time because of my determintion to use this as a commute alternative. Well this is a lot more fun than I thought, bringing back memories of when I was younger skateboarding and snowboarding and now I'm learning tricks. So, with Washington receiving more pleasant weather in theses upcoming months, I'd like to introduce myself (Hi, I'm Ozzie) and maybe arrange and meet up for a ride with others because this is too much fun not to share with others. Shalom, ORVL
  10. GyroMetrics is a free application for logging data and controlling an EUC in a device independent way. See for an introduction. 9BMetrics worked with Ninebot and now it works with Ninebot, Gotway, Kingsong and InMotion. As I don't have all the wheels some support is better than others and all feedback is welcome. The application also uses the AppleWatch if available for showing information, starting/stopping recording and locking/unlocking the wheel or sounding the horn (in Kingsong), @Chriull has devloppend some GNUPLOT scripts for presenting the information which are vailable here. Also some Python generic scripts are available at following posts. First Gyrometrics version is 2.5 which has the following differences with 9BMetrics 2.4: - For Ninebot Users You may enable or disable speed limit from settings while connected You may lock / unlock wheel when connected From the watch you may lock / unlock the weel by doing hard press and selectiong the option in the menu - For KingSong Users Now horn works from the watch. Just a double tap in the center field and should play it - For InMotion Users (all beta features, sorry my accesibility is rare) Disabled serial number checking. Should connect with V8 Lock / Unlock may or may not work as explained for Ninebot Users - For everybody Python Scripts that work in Pythonista and in normal desktop environments (They work in the iPhone ) for plotting data directly from new .9bz archives. Will put them in the GyroMetrics topic Working in new features : Current visible in the watch, color shows direction Battery color will change to orange in phone and watch if battery level > 90% and current is < 0 Other features : Incremental saving - So if application crashes ypu don't loose all data Autocalibration of distance and speed
  11. A few weeks ago my LEDs all stopped working on my Inmotion V8. I get an error in the app when I try to turn them on or off, and handle+button doesn't work either. I know the LED strips are still good, occasionally when powering on or off I will get a flash of LED lights. Reseller extraordinaire @Jason McNeil suggested I try re-uploading the default lighting scheme to the wheel, which threw an error in the app. I've read about the memory shortage issue but would be surprised if it applies here since I only had a handful of custom schemes, including two that were just simple, steady blocks of white/red in the front/back. Has anyone experienced a similar issue and, if so, have you been able to resolve it? The LED lights are fun but I also value them for visibility during night riding. Thanks!
  12. Hey Guys, Finally got my V8 from @Jason McNeil in London UK at wheelgo.com. I can't recommend him enough. Him and his colleague Stefan have been so helpful, generous and patient before and after purchase. I was even able to learn to ride backwards on their beat-up IPS132 before getting my V8 and I'm glad I did! Thank you Jason and Stefan. I've rarely seen customer service like this. I love this wheel. The cut-off button and the trolley are indispensable. The thinness of the wheel and the nice size of the pedals also add a lot to the comfort, not to mention the safety of having a pedal height of 150mm for sharp turns. It's super responsive which is a must, especially with all these pedestrians in London. Here's my issue though. Every time I make a pronounced turn, the pedals lean forward a lot and STAY forward when I'm riding straight right after. I have to lean back for a short time to make them straight again. I'm guessing this is normal BUT I figured I could adjust the angle in the "turning and forwarding adjustment" menu in the app. It doesn't work. I've tried putting the wheel on sleep mode on its side but nothing works. Has anybody succeeded in adjusting how much forward the pedals lean when you turn? Thanks! Took me 6 hours to put the padding on the wheel haha. OCD to the rescue!
  13. I just recently put a deposit down on a new inmotion V8 from ewheels.com. Thanks Jason! I came to find out that inmotion no longer makes the protective cover. I was wondering if anyone has one they're willing to sell me.
  14. Today I was riding my V8 on my daily commute like I've been doing it for 2 months. I was around 15mph on asphalt flat terrain, when suddenly the inmotion v8 gave up and I went body against pavement. It didn't play any different warning sound it just suddenly didn't do anything. As I've had a couple events where the wheel slowly titled completely and now gave up totally, is there a data logger where I can retrieve the wheel facts of the issue ?? I really want to know if something failed, overheat, frozen, over-speed. I can't really trust it, this thing might be trying to kill me. Maybe it has a buggy firmware, this device must have a log memory that logs every event and then later be retrieved, just like a tesla car. Facts: As I dragged myself to grab it out of the road I noticed the blue lights were still on. Temperature this morning 30 degrees Fahrenheit. About -2 celsius. Battery was probably around 92%. I do full charge at home and I had only ridden about 1.5 miles. I've set its max speed to be 19mph so the wheel beeps at 16mph and start tilting back. Not sure if it's even possible to go to 19mph as it plays the warning sound and tilts back. Yes, lots of cuts, lacerations and pain. Lucky is winter and I was riding with a big jacket. Not sure if I had any major complication as I'm still waiting for the pain to go away. Please let me know how do you guys troubleshoot falls, if I can retrieve logs it will be very useful.
  15. Hello, first posted topic and hoping it isn't a stupid one... Can anyone tell me why the wheel spins out of control when it's lifted from the ground and the button on the handle is not pressed? I know that the inmotion app allows the handle button to be disabled, but I can't seem to find out how to disable the initial action of the wheel spinning in the first place. Is this a feature of some kind that I'm just not considering?
  16. Hey Inmotion riders, I've been repairing my wheel's tire recently (changed the inner tube) and after putting everything back together found out that wheel is not maintaining balance properly while standing on it. Basically it starts out properly, have the balance, but once I step in and lean forward the balance of the wheel and pedals is kinda shaking up and down. What could be possibly a problem? I screwed everything back in place, super tight. Doesn't seem to be the case. Everything was cool before the teardown. Also if anybody has a picture of control board with all the connections could you please attach it here? Thanks
  17. this is how my left pedal looks like after about 500km. Is it that the grip tape doesn't like sand?
  18. Wondering if there is a comparison at all. Just tell me that my InMotionV5F+ is better ( just riding experience not the details) than Solowheel at a cheaper price. That makes me feel good and intelligent.
  19. I'm the proud owner of a new V5F+ and I see that you can change the pedal position by using the "Pedal Horizontal Adjustment" setting in the app. I think it defaults to -2.2° My question is, what is the best setting? Is it not best to have it totally flat? Is there a best setting for speed or control? Or is it simply personal preference or comfort?
  20. Hi, so I just bought the V5F inmotion electric unicycle and I have ridden it for a little bit. It is winter right now for me and about 27 degrees fahrenheit. While I was riding it, I heard some kind of warning, probably the warning telling me that it was too cold or something, (it definatly wasn't about speed or anything like that cause i wasn't going fast at all) and then I started to fall off of it so i tried to slow down as much as I could, then jumped off of it making the unicycle to kinda slide on its side. Keep in mind I was not going that fast at all, maybe 8-10 mph. When I went over to start it up again, nothing happened. I took it back to my house and plugged it in to the charging cable. The unicycle was kinda wet cause of the snow. When i plugged it in, the charging lights did not come on but the red light on the charging box was red. I let it sit like that for a couple of hours and then came back and saw that the red light had become green but when i pressed the sensor button, nothing happened. Its like the thing is dead even though it is fully charged. The bluetooth wont work obvioustly cause of the fact that the thing isn't on. I just need help and am wondering what to do. The unicycle is still a bit damp kinda in where the wheel is so im wondering if that needs to fully dry.
  21. Wondering if InMotion V8 can let you dazzle with the lights when the EUC is flat on the ground. Just thinking of it as a landing point for the drone in the dark.
  22. So I bought a inMotion V8 on aliexpress for a gift to someone. I got delivered mid december 2016. It seems the unit was planned for the european market as I got the EU charger ( input = 200/240v) + a cheap adaptor for the US plug. Half of the manual is in Spanish Anyway, after charging it, when I ride, the unit stops when the battery gets around 85% (like it runs out of battery) . I thought it was because of the charger so I decide to use a real US charger (100-240v) for V8 (another one that I bought in september) and charged it full. But again when I went out riding, it did stop again although the battery was 90%. Each time it stopped it was in the same way as when the battery runs out of power ... So now I start to think that it is a general problem with the battery more that with the charger ... I just need confirmation ... what do you think ? Has it already happen to someone ? How did you fix it?
  23. Quick review on @Jason McNeil's (eWheels / WheelGo) 2.5A charger. Yet another prompt and fast shipment with tracking from Jason (thanks again!) obviously, much faster charging than the stock 1.5A V5 charger, feels roughly twice as fast! 60% to full charge took a hair under 30 minutes. [2.5A fast charger stats] = (6.75" x 2" x 2" / 1.6 lbs) [1.5A stock charger stats] (6.75" x 2.75" x 3.125" / 1 lb) portability-wise, not that bad a trade-off than I previously thought! great peace of mind to the buyer in that Jason has carefully spec'd the charger to be a.) safe for the battery, and b.) of solid build quality. The only real con is the audible fan noise when connected (think loud computer fan or medium whisper), but quite honestly, you probably won't be charging for that long, in relation to stock charging. Highly recommend! (might have to pick up 1 more...)
  24. Is there any news about enhancements or new Inmotion models for spring or summer 2017? I have heard of a few for both Gotway and Kingsong, but I was wondering, in advance, if there will also be an Inmotion model or two competing for dollars I shouldn't be spending. ?
  25. its directional instability drives me nuts. Driving this wheel straight along longitudinal grooves is more challenging than making small backward circles (which is, admittedly, with this wheel surprisingly easy). I didn't have any crash, but the wobbles are crazy scary and make precise steering super difficult. What is your experience? I suspect the main or even sole reason might be the Kenda tire?
