  1. I have been looking into alternative battery sources to power one of my projects using a Gotway Monster Motor/circuit board. Does anybody have any information on..? -voltage (working/full/empty charge voltages). I am confused on the newer 84v batteries and the working voltages -minimum capacity to safely run a 1600watt motor (not planning on using the wheel below 50% battery). -any suggestions on DIY battery and what is the most reliable 18650 cell to use Thank you for your help!
  2. 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?
  3. 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!

  4. So I just tried out my new Monster for an errand ride. Riding is awesome and comfortable. However once I get to the store I find that the handle is just a little low. As the unit weight is around 70 lbs I can't really carry it like Ninebot one. Consequently, I end up hunched over to one side, which is doable, but looks and feels silly. I am thinking of finding an old suitcase and repurposing the handle by attaching to the top of the Monster handle to give me that extra few inches. I tried using a strap extension but this didn't give me very good control of the Monster. As I have the 2400 Wh model I just leave it on and walk it like a moderately recalcitrant dog. I think that the Monster is a pretty good looking design so whatever I do I don't want to take away to much from the asthetic. Also, the Monster is large so an modifications that I make should not present a danger to my middle lower extremities during normal operations or in the event of a crash. Does anyone have any creative suggestions?
  5. I've been partial to the K&M Heli 2 Stand for my EUCs, but it does not really support more than ~30 lbs max (the legs will warp). So, after some searching for a solution for my Gotway 22" ~70 lbs Monster, settled on this: BIKEHAND Bike Bicycle Floor Parking Rack Storage Stand So far, so good!
  6. 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
  7. Does anyone have a real-world review of the 2400 watt-hour Gotway Monster? I'm a heavy guy (105kg), I got rid of my Kingsong 18in 520W because of its short distance, and now looking for a proper upgrade.
  8. So I had to take the control board side cover of my Monster off as the magnet that holds the foot pedal up had come lose. I spoke to my seller and we didn't want the magnet shorting something out so I got a chance to get a peek inside one side. I always wondered why the Monster would lean towards one side when the power was off now I know. On the controller side there is an 800Wh battery and the controller. I am assuming that the other side has two 800Wh batteries thus the small weight difference. Anyway for those who are interested here is the inside: As for the magnet, the glue around the edges holding it in place was pretty thin. It is now Gorilla glued and Gorilla taped in place on the back cover. Don't let this little hiccup steer you away from the Monster. I find it is an awesomely fun wheel to ride.
  9. I just received my new Gotway Monster 2400. Awesome looking wheel. It arrived at 20% charge due to shipping restrictions. I charged it through the day and overnight. Both lights are green on the machine but the iOS app is showing only 50%. The charging block is also green. The vendor that I am dealing with (ridetheglide) is excellent and will pay for shipping and any repairs if required. However, I don't really want to put that expense on them if it is an app anomaly. I am going to ride it down to empty (20%) and recharge to see if that will reset the unit. Has anyone else experienced this?
  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. Quick & dirty impressions of my now 2 week old 2400WH Monster from SpeedyFeet (another great & relatively fast (holiday shipping delays) transaction!): Heavy! The packaged Monster (72.5 lbs) almost bowled me over trying to cart it at my apartment concierge desk. The retail packaging box bottom (not shipping box) can't even sustain the weight, the Monster was busting through the bottom when I lifted by the carry-handles! Actual measured weight of the wheel: 63.2 lbs. Similarly, when idle with one leg stepped off, I can't let the Monster body tip-over too much like I can with any other EUC, otherwise the weight is too much for my pedal leg to counteract. (never even experienced this with my KS-18A mkII 680WH!) I've since learned to straddle the upper body between my thighs to prevent the wheel from falling over. Weight balance is noticeably back-heavy, as I believe both battery packs are situated upright, and towards the back of the wheel. Not sure why they did this. Stock 1.5A charging is faster than my previously low expectations. My Monster, as in the SpeedyFeetUK review, shipped to me with 1/5 bars on the idle taillight LEDs (think that's approx. 20%). I charged the wheel overnight (right away after unboxing), and at about the 12 hour mark, the Gotway iOS app at idle showed 70%, not bad considering! Also, not sure if this is the case for all Gotway OEM chargers, but I was surprised the power was not grounded (laptop-style 2 prong, ala Ninebot & IPS OEM chargers). Wide! I have to bowl my legs to get them flush against the Monster body (my height: 5'8"), another first for me on an EUC (used to it now). @logos122 who rode as well, seemed perfectly fine, possibly on account of having experience with the boxy MSuper2. IMHO, stock Monster pedals are fine; better, in fact, than an MSuper3 pedal swap (bought from SpeedyFeetUK alongside the Monster). Doing this swap yielded no additional comfort (both are about 8 1/8" long; my feet: US 8.5), and actually, they felt less safe, as the MSuper3 pedals are about 1/8" narrower, and while riding, my feet felt a little like they might fall off the sides. Smooth! The ride on the Monster is super smooth! Seems comparable to the rest of the Gotway line, though the only other Gotway I've ridden was @logos122's MSuper3S+. The 22" x 2.75" tire absorbs most bumps on chewed up NYC streets like they don't even exist! The Monster at 22" (some car tire sizes) feels the most solid and safest I've ridden in NYC street traffic. Where on a 14"-18" I tend to ride a 50/50 mix of sidewalks & street traffic, on this 22", I find myself preferring regular streets (not that you can't ride comfortably amongst pedestrians, which I regularly do as well). Initial acceleration is slow (obviously due to weight), but top end acceleration is excellent! (don't ask me toppest of top speeds, I am allergic to concussions). Both me and @logos122 felt the Monster's hardness / response was significantly harder than the super-soft MSuper3S+. Maneuvering and turning require much more exaggerated upper body / hip movement / counterbalance. Movements are obviously slower, due to the Monster's weight, but I can maneuver just fine, as with any EUC, just, again, slower. Slower braking obviously necessitates greater anticipation time. It is what it is. Range seems consistent, trail and body weight proportional (my weight: 170 lbs), with what Ian reports in the SpeedyFeetUK video review Typical Gotway no-frills: headlight is weak sauce (just shows others you exist. the V5F+/V8 headlight is at least 3x brighter) battery meter is the dual function rear brake light, ala ACM, impossible to see while riding, *ugh. no trolley solution (actually, I can understand, as the average trolley might succumb to the Monster's weight). rolling the Monster around is similar to rolling my KS-18A around; the handle height is just short enough that I personally have to hunch a bit. As I have yet to invest in a proper selfie-stick / GoPro rig, here is a vid @logos122 made of the Monster:
