Before I take this thing apart, I'm wondering if you guys can give me some insight on what this "wobble" or "play" is so that I know what to watch out for and what I'm getting into. How dangerous is this? I've attached a video, but I'm not sure if it will display properly. Gotway ACM 16 Wobble Play VLC Android SD High.mp4
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.
Newbie to EUCs, just got mine a few weeks ago. I'm wondering if this is normal, or should I demand a new one, or perhaps try to fix it. When I lift the EUC off ground, it spins to max speed and soon turns off. While the wheel is slowing down, the whole device shakes quite strongly. Looking at the edge of the rim it goes up and down in relation to the EUC shell, as if the wheel axle was slightly off-center. I'm a beginner and my riding is not smooth enough for me to notice it while riding. Here's a video to demonstrate the issue. Is this normal?
