  3. I decided to buy ecu again. I had Segway one, but it broke down a year ago. I want to buy more powerful ecu because I live in Ireland where there are a lot of hills. My weight is 85kg. I've watched inmotion v8, but maybe it's a better choice. Thank you in advance.
  4. Happy weekend! A great view from the INMOTION homeoffice, peace, serenity, tranquility. Then, take your INMOTION!
  5. After having used an electric skateboard around town (mainly for transportation) for the past couple of months I realized that enough of the roads around here are a hair too crappy for said skateboard — the board can take it, but I find the ride too rough. Now I'm thinking about switching from the skateboard to a KS16S (or a onewheel+, but that's another story), but having watched a crapton of EUC youtube videos and having browsed thru that "If you fell off EUC and got injured in the last few years, how are you all doing now?" thread, I had a few questions about cutouts: 1. How common are cutouts? As in are cutouts one of those things that aren't so much a "if you have one" thing as a "when you have one" thing? 2. From what I've seen and read I get that the beefier the EUC, the lower the risk of cutouts, and the closer you hang out at the max speed of your EUC, the higher the risk of cutouts, but what are some other things that raise or lower the risk of cutouts? 3. If I'm around 175lbs (80kg) and I don't plan to go much faster than, say, a bicycle that's cruising around (that's about as fast as I care to go on the electric skateboard), are cutouts something I should worry about if I'm looking at a KS16S? And unrelated to cutouts, I have two other noob EUC questions: 1. If I'm buying in the US, is ewheels.com the way to go? Or are there other sites I should also be looking at? 2. Is carrying grocery bags in your hands while riding an EUC a bad idea, balance-wise?. What about shifting the bags around like you might do if you were walking around with heavy bags and your hands were getting tired? 3. The inmotion V8 was the EUC I was actually interested in (because in addition to the 16" wheel and extendable handle in the KS16S, the V8 also had a kill switch for lifting it) but it sounds like ewheels.com is not going to carry it anymore, and I also got the impression that ewheels was the only official distributor of the V8 in the US. Are there other legit outlets that will now carry the V8 in the US?
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. I'm thrilled at joining the ranks of euc users. Although been riding for approximately 1 month, I've aggressively logged now over 62.7km. Looking forward to interacting with more of you in the forum(s), also in real. Now, can anyone tell me what the software funtion of the "Zero Point" is? Also, regarding the built-in overspeed protection, is there a way to (re) adjust it?
  9. Hi! I just bought an Inmotion L8F from a seller at caraosel (2nd hand). When I wanted to change the bluetooth password in the apps it stated "Only the owner can change the password". But I am the owner now. How can I change the password & become the owner in the apps? Please help!
  10. I am currently working on a project that is focused on different ways to increase overall awareness of personal electric vehicles including electric unicycles. I have created a very simple 12 question anonymous survey on typeform and it would be very helpful to get a better understanding of other early adopters of the EU to move forward with project. ( https://early-eu-adopters.typeform.com/to/DXnrES ) It is called the "EU Early Adopter Survey".
  11. Hi everyone! I wonder wheter there is possibility to get some new led lights patterns for the V8. In my app, there are only 6-8 recommended patterns (I dislike most of them) and then I can do my own. I tried to do my own, but Im not patient and creative enough to do them. Is there a way to download more patterns, maybe what other people created? I didn't find one. Thanks.
  12. Hello EUC Forum Members, TL;DR: Help me pick between a V5F+ and V8 for a thin tall lightweght guy commuting 5 miles each way in the hellish temperatures of FL but who may move to PNW or UK and may need 10 miles each way. I posted yesterday in the General forum about deciding between the heavily discounted Segway One S1 and the V5F+. I knew I wanted the Inmotion wheel but liked the idea of learning on the cheap Segway plus finances are stretched right now. I ended up not getting the S1 leaving me thoroughly in Inmotion territory. I'm pretty fixedd on the idea of the V5F+ but the current sale price of the V8 on ewheels puts it at a comparable price range. So once again I turn to the experience of this forum for help. About Me: 39 years old. 155lb. 6ft 1in. In other words tall and skinny. I'm into tiny living and greatly appreciate portability, compact size, light weight, quality build, longevity, simplicity and repairability in a product. Getting all these in a product would be awesome but I'm happy to sacrifice slightly on some of these desired traits for big gains in others and will pay extra for something that ticks all the boxes. I enjoy cycling and this has been my main method of commuting (Brompton H6R) but current conditions make doings so the absolute puts (see environment below). No experience on unicycles, electric or otherwise. I will be learning on this device. Environment: RIght now I live in coastal Florida. It's hot. Horribly hot...and humid. Usage can be expected in temperatures ranging from low 80's in the morning to mid 90's in the afternoon. I try to avoid being out in the Florida rain storms but if caught out then it is like raining through a wall of water at times. Storms are normally short and avoidable but torrential. I avoid deep puddles but in the storm standing water draining from the road can be a 1/4 inch deep. Terrain is flat as a pancake apart form the odd canal bridge. Florida is not forever though. In the next 12 months I expect to find myself either in the Pacific North West or England. SImilar environmentally to each other. Moderate temperatures. Rarely hot or cold. Usage from mid 40's to mid 70's. Hills are a distinct possibility but I'm not going to insist my EUC drag me up the equivalent of Everest. I'd rather walk it than burn the device out. Rain is highly likely in the places. Unavoidable due to its persistence but generally lighter in nature. Usage: Mainly commuting and errand running. Commuting right now is 5 miles each way but I'd like the optio to do a little more and I'm not sure what the commute will be when I move. The odd recreational cruise would also be desirable. Not looking to do tricks, stunts etc. Maybe some trail rides/grass etc but not looking to off road the thing. What I'm Looking For: Crazy top speed is not important to me. I've no desire to loose excessive skin, any teeth, or my life. Mid to upper teens will be more than enough I think, but I'd like to be able to set my tilt back a few MPH under the EUC limit to allow a good reserve of power for safety's sake. I want the EUC to be able to deliver if I screw up and overlean or hit an unexpected pothole, bump that requires extra power for stability. I would prefer to have a larger battery/long range. I don't expect to use it all up but would like to not have to charge at work. For longevity purposes I'd also prefer to use a charge doctor to cut off the charge at 75 to 80% capacity and only run it down to around 25%. This is because I'd like to eek as much Life from the battery as I can regarding charge cycles while retaining a usable range once it starts to age and capacity drops. I also don't want to drain lower than 25% to ensure good power delivery when needed for safety, even at the end of my day when I'm wrapping up my commute. Right now my commute would just be using the EUC. In the future it could involve buss or train so portability and size is important. Headlamp is highly desirable, tail light is desirable. I like to be seen. I have a great head mounted front and rear light unit on my bike helmet (Light and Motion Vis 360) but the more the better. I'm not going to be in the financial position to have multiple wheels so this device has to last me a few years. This is why getting it right first time round, reliability, and maintainability through self repair is important. I hope this covers what I am looking for well enough to get advice. Below are the pros of both the V5F+ and V8. I'd appreciate additional input on suitability and which you would choose having had experience with EUCs. Pro's of the V5F+ over the V8: Awesome range allowing 50% charging cycles, plenty of reserve after anticipated use and margin for degradation overt time. Lightweight. Compact size, Calf and optional ankle padding Good tail light Slightly cheaper Posts suggest this is a very well built reliable EUC (I've seen some build quality issues in posts about the V8; tire rubbing, LED's quitting, water affecting the power button) Not covered in crazy lighting Pro's of the V8 over the V5F+ More powerful motor when needed (unexpected events, carrying extra load (groceries in a pack)) Good top speed allowing room for a power reserve during unexpected events? 16" wheel (I ride a Brompton folding bicycle with 16" wheels and already feel every bump. Going smaller raises concern for stability in the face of potholes, bad sidewalks etc) I would purchase form ewheels. The V5F+ is $895 right now. I would add the $100 bundle as I want the trolley handle and cover (for protection while learning). The fast charger would be a bonus but I'd probably not use it so may sell it to recoup costs. This brings the V5F+ cost to $995 without any claw back form the sale of the fast charger! Ouch. The V8 is $999. Trolley handle is built in so no extra cost there but I would buy a cover at $49. No fast charger with the V8 so couldn't recoup anything. Total for the V8 would be $1048. Difference between the two is just $53. So. What do you think. Are my pro's valid? Any I didn't think of? Any of them invalid or just not worth being a pro? Input and opinions after you put yourself in my shoes.
  13. Hi, everyone! This is my first post here (and certainly not my last one ;-) ). I'm Justina and I've fallen in love with electric unicycles. It all began from curiosity "how can I improve my daily commute?", and when I bought my first EUC, it instantly became my hobby. Then I met some local enthusiasts and our small group started growing. After a while we started a project together that over time has become www.ElectricUnicycles.eu Our mission is to increase people's awareness of electric unicycles and show them it is not a gadget or a prototype - it is the best way of personal transportation in the world. And it's available now, everywhere! Our goal is to change people's thinking and replace their bicycles with electric unicycles, for daily commute. We live in the 21th century, why do we still use technology that hasn't changed from 200 years? It's time for a change, for people to know about EUCs! I create videos for our YouTube channel (anybody has seen my vids before?), where I try to help you as much as I can - either with choosing the righ wheel, or to do typical stuff like changing the tyre. We have just added new general videos with real life scenarios with electric unicycle usage: Electric unicycle vs bicycle - for commuting - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmmPaLxP4pk Electric unicycle for meetings - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lDgp59N3ZU If you like them, feel free to share! Many more coming soon! -------------------- Besides this, we also have an European shop with only one category: electric unicycles. We believe this is superior to any two wheelers or scooters and everyone can learn how to ride it, just how everyone had to learn riding a bicycle as a kid - we just don't remember this now. I have a huge €100 discount for all forum members, for the following electric unicycles: * 2017 KingSong KS-16S (840 Wh) is €1514 for forum members, * 2017 Inmotion V8 (480 Wh) with carbon fibre-like kit is €982 for forum members, * 2017 KingSong KS-16C face-lift (680 Wh) is €1075 for forum members, * 2017 KingSong KS-14D (420 Wh) is €886 for forum members. Heads up! We do not collaborate with everyone. We collaborate with the top league manufacturers exclusively, to deliver the best electric unicycles only. Everything comes with a 2-year warranty, a gift, and of course functional mobile app. Dispatch up to 24 hours if not stated otherwise on the site. Do you live outside Europe? Contact me. How to get the €100 discount? It's easy and will take only 3 minutes: 1. Like our new Facebook page (click) 2.

Contact me by sending a private message here, or via Facebook / website - simply text "DONE" :-) I'm here for you if you have any questions. Also, I'm looking forward to talk to you about EUCs overall, I will start replying to other topics here for sure! Best Regards, Justina PS. This is how we do it:
  14. Hello, I bought an Inmotion v5+ about two months ago. Now It has already 500km. I'm writing here because I'd like to increase the speed of my wheel but I don't know what is the procedure. Please, someone can help me? I heared that exist an apk to do that, but I would not be able to figure out how it works.. Thank you
  15. 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
  16. I didn't imagine an Inmotion rep posting twice in this forum a few days ago did I? One intro post and one hinting of the Solowheel merger (or whatever it is they are doing). There were discussions of a new D1 wheel in testing. Where'd the posts go? I've searched and looked in the "threads I have contributed to" section of the site and found nothing. I'm guessing admins must have been involved for threads with replies to disappear. Or maybe I'm just not looking hard enough...or I was high or something. Anybody? Anybody? Bueller? Bueller?
  17. 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 =)
  18. Hello everyone! I have a 14-year old son who's bugging me to buy him an electric unicycle since last year. It will be his birthday on September 8th and I was planning to surprise him with his dream unicycle. I've been searching everyday and I've found that there are so many unicycles. I'm not really a techie mom so I want to ask you guys for any recommendation. Actually, I saw the Inmotion V8 and I read a comprehensive review from transporationevolved.com. I really loved the look of the Inmotion V8 but I'm still quite hesitant. Thankfully, I've found this forum and maybe you can help me decide which unicycle to buy for my son. Any thoughts? If you owned an Inmotion V8, how was its performance on the road?
  19. Let's see if I can make this short. Had more charge than I noticed so going down a hill with the regenerative charging killed the fuse and capacitors. Thanks to Jason at ewheels I ordered a replacement board, replaced it, and I'm back on the road. ?
  20. After a ton of searching and reading I've concluded that battery capacity, longevity, and what we can do to preserve them has been the topic of many conversation on this forum. It is understandable too. After all the ability of the battery to safely deliver in an array of circumstances and environmental conditions makes the difference between a safe ride and a face-plant. Replacement power packs also seem to cost about the same as half of a new wheel! Ouch! I've been concentrating on what I can do to preserve the capacity of the battery in my newly ordered Inmotion V8. For the type of wheel the V8 has a relatively low capacity and so a restricted range compared to say the KS 16S but wins in the area of waistline and weight. I'm loath to start another thread when there are so many already but I have a few questions that appear to have, so far, been unanswered. Conventional wisdom on the forum derived through discussion and a heavy reliance on the information from Battery University (batteryuniversity.com hereafter referred to as BU) is that if you can get away with only charging to 80% and performing 50% discharge you will return you the best bang for your battery buck with regards to increasing the number of charge cycles by 4 or 5 times. BU reports that EV's such as the Nissan Leaf and Tesla models do this by charging to 80% capacity for a "full tank" and considering 30% to be an "empty tank". This maximizes charge cycles of the hugely expensive batteries and then by dynamically increasing this usage range beyond the initial 50% limit as the battery ages the vehicle is able maintain mileage specs over a number of years. BU considers a full charge discharge cycle to take a single cell's voltage from 3.0V (empty) to 4.2V(full). So following their suggestion of say an 80% capacity charge and only 50% usage to 30% capacity suggests a charged cell voltage of 3.96V and a discharged cell voltage as 3.36V. This is where I want help. The thing is, in the interest of safety I understand most EUC manufacturers artificially increase the "empty" voltage of a cell above 3.0V. From information I read on this forum from Jason Inmotion's cutoff voltage is 68V (over a 20 series 2 parallel setup) giving an empty cell voltage of 3.4V. With this in mind, ignoring any safety aspects of potential for restricted current delivery at low voltages, to achieve the best balance of capacity and longevity from my V8 battery I should charge to 80% (according to a 3rd party too such as the Charge Doctor, not the V8's battery indicator) cell capacity (3.96V) and then discharge until the V8 considers the tank dry (actual 3.4V) which in reality BU would consider still to be 33% actual cell capacity. Thus I consumed only 47% capacity. Do you agree with this conclusion? If I were to charge to 80% and discharge to 30% following the Inmotion battery indicator only for both levels then I'm guessing I'd actually be charging to 4.04V (80% of the 3.4V to 4.2V range, 86% of actual 3.0 to 4.2V cell range) and discharging to 3.64V (30% of the 3.4V to 4.2V range, 53% of actual 3.0 to 4.2V cell range) meaning I actually only get to use 33% of the real battery capacity vs the 50% I think I'm using. In another post on the forum in Jason's initial review of the V8 prototype he says that the V8 remained responsive and performed well right down to empty. So, if Inmotion keeps so much power in reserve and the wheel appears solid even at lower voltages I'm thinking of doing the 80% charge via Charge Doctor and drain to near flat as my usual routine to hit that balance of range and longevity (unless it is cold, then I’ll leave extra in the tank). What are your thoughts, first on my initial battery conclusions and then on my consideration to use the battery down to Inmotion’s definition of empty? I appreciate your input. P.S. If we can keep the discussion relatively layman that would be awesome!
  21. I purchased this wheel from @Jason McNeil about 3 months ago for my sons birthday, but had to wait until (1) his actual bday (4/28) and (2) the most important part, he was supposed to save half the money . Anyway, it all came together today and go figure, it took him about 20 mins to be up and rolling, seriously not fair!
  22. 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.
  23. So I'm not sure what just happened, but I just turned on my wheel, ready for a nice evening ride, connected the app to it and decided to turn on the LED lights for once.. And as soon as I did that, the wheel cut out and won't power on. It had about 82% battery and had been working fine earlier in the day. It's about 22deg C here, so not too warm. Plugging it in to the charger, the light on the charger is red but nothing happens on the wheel. I've only had it around a month and a half.. I haven't killed it, have I? Is there any kind of hard reset I can do?
  24. 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
  25. 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!
