  1. Hi, thank you for the great forum. I would like to start with EUC so I have not much knowledge. I want to buy an EUC but have not decided yet. I would be thankful for help! I live in a city (and especially my street) which is quite steep so some power is needed. I do not intend to use it regularly for my commute but more for fun or for some travels with trains etc. Therefore range is not a big issue. I like speed. I am not squeamish when it comes to carrying weight, but as mentioned before, I will use it for public transport so a medium weight would be nice. I do not care much about the design. I care for durability. I do not need a fancy app but setting a speed limit for the beginning which can be removed when I think it is the right time is good. I do not mind buying a used one, but my impression was that the price difference is small. So I thought about parameters like this: 500W/15km/28km/h/12kg I do not want to invest a lot and would like to invest below 400€, nevertheless, I do not want to invest 350€ for an EUC which I will consider too weak after a few weeks. I considered the Ninebot S2 which I can get for about 330€ with warranty I considered the Gotaway MCM3 (130WH) for 313€ without warranty I considered the Gotaway MCM3 (170WH) for 360€ without warranty I considered the Gotaway MCM4 (130WH) for 463€ without warranty I considered this one (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2016-New-Fashion-style-Powered-Bluetooth-unicycle-1600W-self-balancing-car-smart-car-single-wheel-thinking/32738452250.html) for 284€ but when I asked about more details the seller told me it was out of stock. I considered the IPS ZERO (240WH) for 421€ without warranty . If you have other recommendations or better prices (for Germany) I would be thankful. Also if you think my parameters are bullshit feel free to tell me. Thank you very much!
  2. Dropped MCM4 in a pond

    It's now pretty clean! It was under the water for a second or two, but it pretty boldly went where no wheel should go. It works just fine. It was not too far away from home but I rode around a few km slowly to see how it would behave. Everything seems to be in check. I guess the shell is like a bell volume, and the water simply didn't have the time to crawl deep inside. I'm not sure what to do. Just wait, or disassemble? I'm not keen on disassembling it really.
  3. Gotway charging ritual

    The manual makes a point about a specific order of connections when charging a wheel. I have MCM4 HS but I suppose most Gotways should be nearly the same in this regard. The order is: To charge: * Connect the three-prong connector to the wheel * Plug the charger to the wall socket After having finished charging: * Disconnect the three prong from the wheel * Unplug the charger from the wall socket Is this the ritual other Gotway shamans observe? I ask because even though I'm ready to accept this nonsense for the sake of preservation of an expensive piece of equipment, I don't like how too much seems to be dependent on a completely arbitrary order that's very easy to mess up. What makes me especially worried: * When I start charging and connect the three-prong connector, there are sparks flying. I'm having a hard time accepting this as normal. * Until I plug the charger in the wall, its LED shows up as green. It's not a problem per se, but I think it's an indicator of a bad electric design. So, should I worry more than usual about this or is this just how those things are?
  4. How weatherproof is MCM4?

    If the place where I live had a local language, we would have had about 40 different words for different kinds of rain. The ports (charging and usb) have covers, and even though mine are not really holding too well and slip off easily, that's a relatively simple fix. However I'm really worried about the power button. It does not look to be particularly weather-proof. So what's a typical experience about riding with the elements? A light drizzle? Light to medium showers? Raining dogs? The manual only mentions puddles specifically: they should be not thicker than 5cm.

  7. Gotway MCM4 Android app problem

    Hi, New Gotway user here. My phone is Nexus 6p. The system settings sees the wheel but refuses to pair. I heard that's normal. I have tried two apps: one is GotWay.apk from kebye.com. This one shows a splash screen, then another screen saying 2.0, New something, Blabla, and gets permanently stuck there. Another one is called Gotway_4.0_Dual_English_Chinese, which I downloaded from this forum. It requires manual pairing and thus seems to be incompatible with MCM4. What am I doing wrong? How important is the app anyway? Thanks for the help!
  8. Hello everyone. Brand new user here. Been riding my gotway mcm4 for 2 days total. Got the hang of it taking off from a wall yesterday and was trying to take off not using a wall today. I was starting in the grass to limit damage to myself and the device. Was working fine this morning. Finally got to take off and move with out the wall or falling over and hit a small hole in the yard that knocked me off. Wasn't going very fast at all as I had just started out. Once I picked it up it now has a click and hesitation at start and makes a kind of rubbing noise while the wheel is spinning at higher speeds. I am going to ask the seller I purchased from on Ebay that has a shop in New York what he thinks. My concern is seeing as how as I am a new rider and the casing is scraped up quite a bit from practice that no one will be willing to help me out. If anyone can give me some assistance it would be greatly appreciated as I hadn't planned on it breaking in less than 2 days riding nor did I plan on throwing around $900 out the window. I did take the cover off both sides just to make sure nothing came unplugged. Did not see anything that immediately caught my attention. Posted a youtube video below. Thanks to anyone that can give me some help. Video of MCM4 acting up
  9. Upgrade from MCM4

    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?

  17. My new MCM4 has red pedals

    Hello, last week I sold my MCM4 260wh, and yesterday was my new MCM4 520wh, my surprise was seeing red pedals and led a different color. It is an upgrade or just cosmetic changes?
  18. Replacement pedals for MCM4

    I am trying to find replacement pedals and hangers for a Gotway MCM4. I would really like to replace the pedals on an MCM3 with those L shaped hangers and the big flat bottom pedals from the MCM4. I do realize there are some mods that will need to be done like screw holes and possibly space for the hangers. Any info or opinion would be awesome. Thanx y'all. UPDATE: Just still wondering if anybody read this post I could really use the info. Thanx
  19. Just got my new MCM4 680Wh for 873.00 USD (784.00€) from China with charger, free trolley handle and free shipping to Europe and no import tax. I ordered it on 20 of June, it was shipped on 23 of June and delivered on 30 of June. I told the seller that if I were happy with my purchase I would report it on this forum. Few days later he raised the price to 838,69€ but sent me this message: Dear Franco, you can let your friend and the member of the forum mention your name, i will adjust to be similar price to them. The rising price is just keep it same level from Gotway official price. So don't worry, i can adjust the price for new customer. The seller's link is: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/680Wh-GotWay-14-MCM4-One-wheel-self-balance-electric-scooter-high-speed-unicycle/32620729624.html?spm=2114.13010608.0.79.rjWaS8 He has both versions HS and HT for the same price, just specify which version you prefer. I hope this post can be helpful for members interested in a MCM4 (remember to get a 15.00 USD coupon for the order, so the total would be 858.00USD)
  20. 1. Add-on against raining. I bought rain-cover-for-backpack to be used for this use. ($5 in S. Korea) I ride my MCM4 under heavy rain with holding an umbrella, MCM4's top covered by this rain cover. Some students chortled at seeing my riding... Laughing out loud 2. Add-on for storage I also added storage on top of MCM4 which was purchased at Daiso. ($2) Hanging all weights of my belongings on my shoulders gets a lot pain and then I started put more burden on MCM4, not on me, adding the storage pouch around the handle. And I attached a short leash in place of the original handle as the handle was all covered by the pouch. 3. For security. I hang the security chain and lock on my EUC as seen in the picture. I use it in case of fly fishing. This is what I am doing with my EUC, how about yours, friends? Any better idea?
  21. Where can I buy a MCM4 here in Europe? It is also for sale on Aliexpress, do you think it could be affordable? I'm 67Kg, which model should I go for, ordinary or high speed version? Any suggestion is wellcome. Thanks.
  22. I tested the speed, range along mountain road in S. Korea. What I found is the range is highly dependent on amount of hills, rider's weight, speed of wind, especially the speed of the wheel and acceleration My weight: 67 kg Model used: Gotway MCM4 HS 680WH, 2016 version I hope you to know that in each ride I tried my best effort to maintain the speed in narrow range (1) 1st picture: range traveled: 18.7 km duration: 1hour 11 min the number of hill: lots of hills ( more than 200 hills) battery consumed: 40% the speed range when I saw on iPhone app: 28km/h - 33 km/h acceleration: hard ( I tried to catch up cycles, cars. all cycles were gotten past.) wind: strong headwind ( up to being able to keep my eyes opening) calculated range: 46.8 km = 29.08 miles (2) 2nd picture range traveled: 16.6 km duration: 1hour 31 min the number of hill: lots of hills ( more than 200 hills) battery consumed: 30% the speed range when I saw on iPhone app: 33km/h - 38 km/h acceleration: hard ( I tried to catch up cycles, cars. all cycles were gotten past.) wind: strong headwind (weaker than above) calculated range: 55.3 km = 34.4 miles (3) 3rd picture range traveled: 21.7 km duration: 1hour 49 min the number of hill: some of hills ( about small 20 hills and large 10 hills) battery consumed: 30% the speed range when I saw on iPhone app: 20km/h - 25 km/h acceleration: moderate wind: no headwind calculated range: 72.4 km = 45.0 miles Because I could not record all ranges by the cycling app I have traveled, I can not say the above is precise. However, based on several measurement of distance (calculated on gps map) when I almost used up the battery ( until 20% left ), I can tell that the above calculation is roughly correct. How about the ranges of your MCM4 or KC16, KC14? PS. I heard 3rd warning alarm around 35-38km/h (21.8-23.6mph) from my MCM HS when the battery is between 80-100% Is it normal?
  23. MCM4 hard rockin'

    so i was just riding my mcm4 to work, getting all over confident with the speed and taking over all the cyclists (20-25kph). while going uphill (5%) the wheel started beeping (i have first and second beep disabled, so it was the three beeps alarm) so i slowed down a small bit.. accelerated a bit again, and all of a sudden it started rocking VERY hard back and forth, basically throwing me off the wheel (there's no way anyone could stay on it like that). luckily i managed to run off, and there was no one in direct proximity (wheel took some serious scratches though). Has anyone experienced this before? it scared the hell out of me (and could have had seriously bad consequences)
