The V10f has a 16 x 2.5” tire while the Nikola has a 16 x 3” tire so it isn’t that much different in wheel size. The Nikola is 2” wider than the V10f because it’s batteries are on the side. I haven’t taken mine apart yet to do the battery waterproofing but when I do shortly, I’m going to see what I can do about the heat sink cooling.
I do like the Nikola headlight and battery capacity and if I had money to spend on another wheel I would get it for sure.
Btw, what was the production number on your failed wheel?
Marty’s wheel for reporting low temperatures.
If heat is poorly distributed in an electronic system, then it's local hotspots that determine the failure (or shutdown) point.
If there's a poor thermal architecture, part of the system (potentially where the thermistor measuring the temperature is) can be close to ambient temperature, while another, critical component is very hot.
Thanks for being an early adopter buying and testing the wheels so i can buy the BETTER one (MCM5 800W and now Nikola PLUS)
I was just being nice because I thought you were feeling inadequate with a gazillion MINUS one wheel.
Tested the Beta for around 80km... All new features are working flawless... The Horn with tapping on the screen is very useful. My only concerns are regarding layout. Tomorrow I will post a screenshot from my watch. Tested it with Z10 and Kospet Optimus. With a full android watch is is so much more handy than the old pebble thing...
Thanks for the offer @maltocs , but I have much less riding time than some folks so I have to be picky where I spend my time.
I was just riding my Tesla today which is probably closest to the V10F experience, except it's fast and doesn't overheat
The V10F rides like a smaller wheel (which it is), so it feels a bit less stable then the Nikola. Also, the V10F has a higher center-of-gravity which is less than ideal. This is not to say that the V10F isn't a great ride, but I prefer the Nikola to essentially every wheel I own.
@Marty BackeI was asked to teach high school physics for a few years when I was a private school instructor. I had all the Newtonian physics fresh in mind. One day when the space shuttle launched I had a TV in the classroom just to witness the event.
The shuttle blew up with Christa McAuliffe on board. It was awkward standing in front of a class of students who were equally shocked.
A few years later , after the O ring issue was fixed, I took a trip to the Kennedy Space Center as a tourist.
@Marty Backe doesn't own a V10F. He just used tester unit for his evaluation. It's the one wheel he doesn't own! But he's more than welcome to borrow mine as it gets about an hour of use every month just to make sure it still works.
