15 posts in this topic

When I had one it was one of my favorite to ride, quick little thing, but now it seems New/ redesigned models popping up on ebay

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Gotway-MCM-performance-unicycle-19-mph-800-Watt-motor-large-pedals-/262454281211?hash=item3d1b7e83fb:g:4qsAAOSwOtdYUG~t

seams to be a new version...as the speed seams to have become better...

also can be bought at electro-sport.de in Germany and in France shops also....electro-sport.their test:

 

when i remember it correctly i have seen them somewhere else to buy with 520wh also...and that would definitly be new...as on the first mcm3 versions the board was on the side...and not under the handle

that was the lift speed test without load...

with load it was 38 to 43 (75kg flat belt)....it is announced as bit over 30kmh..which is quiet  good for a 260wh with 16s2p system...

In fact pictures on ebay's ads show a model called URBAN MCM4 :

https://store.urban360.com/roues-urban360/

Urban360 is a french shop (in Paris) in which the manager decided to custom a Gotway MCM3 (same motor as MCM4 but in a MCM2's body, which is not a commercial succes) by changing leg protection for a wider model (grey color) and a longer pedal than original. And this new model's name is URBAN MCM4.

I got one of these for $550, which I thought was a great price. Now I see it's down to $500!

Unlike the Urban 360 photos which all Ebay sellers of this seem to be using, mine is plain black (not carbon) and has red side pads (not black). I love the oversize pedals EXCEPT when the pedals were upgraded, apparently the magnets were NOT upgraded. The magnets are barely strong enough to hold up the pedals. The pedals frequently fall down from very slight jostling or vibration. It's annoying, but not a deal breaker. One of the side pads repeatedly falls off. The last time it fell off, I did not notice until I reached my destination. Luckily I found it on the ground when I returned in the opposite direction. For now, until I can figure out a way to make it stay on, I'm leaving it off so I don't lose it.

Overall this is probably one of the best values for a 14-inch wheel.

Well done, you picked a Gotway MCM3 v2, the last original version of this interesting wheel, and with no additional sticker tending to suggest that it is an other thing... ;)

OK but what battery capacity is?  260Wh as it's said on the ads?

the success of "urban" selling these seams to be so good that GW is now selling that to other distributors, also...

 

The reason of the success of this model is its price, for a standard (= good) GW quality.

Gotway makes very good wheels since a long time, now, and in the same time, can progress so much here and there*, so I am very optimist for them (and quietly happy with mine)! :)

(*) robustness of chassis, axle, pédals, etc. for heaviest pilots, plasic quality/durability, software conception and distribution, internet website, etc...

Yes, as far as I know, 260Wh is the only battery offered with this wheel.

You said "original" with a sony battery and 260Wh for capacity.

I prefer mine with "an additionnal sticker" and with a panasonic 340Wh battery (which is realy orginal, nobody know it in The french (independant) forum?)

This seems a good way to get a Gotway at a lower price and still have the good quality wheel.
