  1. My Dears, it was brought to my attention yesterday that there have been quite a few negative reviews of the EUC World app on Google Play. I'll honestly admit that I haven't taken the time to follow these reviews until now. Recently, not counting professional work and family, the remaining time I devote largely to the development of the EUC World project. This means not only preparing a new release of the application, but also a lot of changes on the EUC World website. I am convinced that you will be very pleased with what I am preparing for you. But let me get back to the point. Look

  2. What monopoly? I just spent some time, money, knowledge and experience to add this feature to the app. Before I learned to ride on EUC, I wondered if I'll be able to learn riding EUCs. Finally I just said to myself: "others was able to learn how to ride on EUCs, so I can do as well!" Say it to yourself - if Seba was able to create AVAS, I can do the same! Just spend some money on schools/courses and books to get knowledge on computers and software development. Spend some money to buy a workstation computer and some necessary tools. Spend some time to get experience on how to code efficien

  3. Hi! I struggle to make every new EUC World update to come with really useful features. EUC World 2.6 will be no different. I finally decided to improve support for Ninebot wheels by rewriting this part of the app from scratch. Ninebot owners will be happy that EUC World will finally support wheel settings. New Ninebot support will also include full support for their BMSes, so checking battery condition won't be a problem. EUC World 2.6 will of course include other features, like personal heatmap displayed on the tour map, weather radar overlay and improvements for Gotway/Begode/Veteran po

  4. Thank you guys and I'm sorry for my emotional reaction; I know I should just ignore some things. EUC World is just my passion that I like to share with others. Your appreciation allows me not to lose my motivation and the feeling that what I do makes sense.

  5. We all know the risks associated with a lithium-ion battery fire. Every once in a while there are reports of someone's battery catching fire while riding, while charging or even while in storage. The problem with Li-Ion cells is that when they get heated to a certain temperature, a thermal runaway begins, in which heat and flammable gases are generated. It is a self-sustaining reaction in which the generated heat leads to the ignition of the gases produced and lasts until the cell burns out completely. One cell is able to heat up adjacent cells, which results in a chain reaction. As the batter

  6. You only need two ingredients: good adrenaline and two beautiful young ladies close by. Short story. I'm riding for the 1st time after a week in the toilet, hospital and bed due to a intestinal bug. My legs are weak due to dehydration and the muscle fatigue, after riding about 15kms, and I'm going down the front road of the (still closed) Tasis International School. Down the road I see two beautiful young ladies. But there's a problem: they're walking three huge dos. I love dogs and have always one in the family. But dogs don't generally love EUC riders. So I signal to the ladies, w

  7. Just to clarify, thank you @Seba! I was a user long before premium even came about. Even so, some of us gladly donated just because even if we dont know jack sh*t about programming, we realize time and knowledge is money. I still havent used MOST of the features including avas. Why, because I dont really need to. DO I still think you deserve a few $$ for your time? Yes! Even tho Im on an older version of EUCW, I can honestly say that I have already used it enough to easily justify the meager donations I've given. Hell, even the cost of a stiff drink is pretty high nowadays! Don't let it get yo

  9. 1,000% this. Just count all the graves and complaints from ghosted backers on most PEV Kickstarters, sporting flashy marketing vids that still have yet to make it to production after X years. "Made in USA" is already a huge red flag here IMHO because: a.) anyone who knows the ebike/escooter/EUC parts manufacturing world knows there is essentially no market to source from but China for the bread-and-butter parts; and out-of-sight, out-of-mind, if you don't have a trusted QC guy directly nitpicking in China, they are famous for half-ass-ing, Chàbùduō 差不多, and you can essentially be sen

  10. Well thanks for the tips people a couple weeks ago to buy the S18, picked one up from Mike at goWheels, here in Canada, just received it today and luckily, already being an expert pedal unicyclists it was a pleasure to just hop on and ride this new machine first try. Its pretty awesome, no problem riding small hills, grass, gravel, paths and a little forest test and some backwards all good already. Definitely hard on the knees though, as I'm sure posture and stamina in the new muscles needed will improve, but overall, I gotta say, this machine is awesome, totally impressed with EUCs and

  13. Coming from a long time motorcycle back ground having different wheels for different rides seems normal for me. Smaller wheel like the mcm5 is great for running errands around town, rs is great off road, 16s with xl pedals is great for cruising the beach boardwalk....what I'm missing is an all weather capable commuting wheel so I'm hoping the normal bearing setup and water resistance is great on this V12. Oddly even my wife agrees a 5th wheel for getting to work is cheaper than another car even if I go through one per year and sel ll it off for a new one. She also knows I'm a happi

  14. Begode Nikola Plus weights 27 Kg. And that's basically just an empty shell with batteries. The 2kg more V12 should have is not that much difference. A bit more material here and there, a beefy light with its own heatsink, batteries encased in their own watertight boxes, and a few similar changes and you get the 2 kg.

  15. I have ridden Gotway MSX and Inmotion V11 a lot, also other wheels. Hands down: Veteran Sherman is the best wheel I have ever had the pleasure to ride. On Road: Powerfull and very balanced. Off Road: Powerfull and very balanced but also surprisingly easy to control. You need good stud pedals and sidepads for this. Uphill is truely amazing. Training: Yes youll get stronger leg muscles from the veteran Sherman. Love: I love everything about this wheel. My V11 is gathering dust now. Cons: Weight and price, but buy it anyway.

  16. IMO it's vaporware until there's a prototype. Even at that point, it's not smooth sailing to production. Everyone's debating how it will sell, I'm not yet convinced it makes it to market.

  18. Wow, that comment really has absolutely zero relation to reality. When the very first bearing issue on the Z-style bearings came into light, IM stopped the production lines in order to change the bearings into better sealed 2RS ones. They even manually replaced the ones they hadn’t yet shipped from the factory. The weak saddle brackets that cracked easily were redesigned, and since there were already a lot of wheels sold, they also designed an additional support to be installed on the first design brackets. Since some of the first batch of motors with the 2RS bearing had new, d

  20. Regarding quality, that's exactly why you should buy an InMotion--that's one of their strengths, and where they lead the competition. Chabuduo is a way of life in China, and it's not necessarily a bad thing--sometimes "good enough" is actually good enough. If we're talking about a $50 hoverboard that goes walking speed, as long as it doesn't burn your house down and lasts a year or two, "good enough." However, we're getting into $2,000 and $3,000 wheels that go 30+ MPH for 50+ miles, and failure at that speed and distance isn't a good thing--imagine hanging out of a car over the pave

  21. New wheel pre-release topics are always like that. Emotions run high, information runs low. The pressure has to go somewhere, might as well be contained here. Well that's my personal view This topic will be closed on release, so precise and on-topic info does not get mixed up with the mess that came before it. But in the mean time, please try to talk about the V12 here.

  22. I can definitely understand. I came to realize that unless you are riding in a group and have a bond with other riders, that riding an EUC is very much a solitary, even isolating experience. Also, I have discovered in my many relocations since becoming an EUC enthusiast that most riders don't want to get together for small group rides, which makes me kind of sad for them. As someone who has relied on an EUC as you do, it was so cool to receive the positive attention from motorists and others ... at first. But once the novelty wore off for those I would encounter frequently, that positive

  23. All 18” wheels are a bit slow to accelerate and brake. Smaller wheels react to a smaller amount of input, which is what we call being more “zippy”. Ways to brake faster: - Make sure that your foot position is optimal. Whether you use symmetrical or offset foot positioning, if your ability to brake is noticeably worse than your ability to accelerate (no matter what the actual reason is), you are probably standing too far to the front. - Pads. They can help you in keeping stability under fast braking, allowing a larger lean. I have angled DIY foam blocks just behind my calves whe

  24. This weekend, after some months of contemplating and waiting for teething pains to be resolved, I've come over to the suspension side as well. V10F -> V11. And it's another world. I got used to it quickly. With about 60 km under the wheel, it's still about first impressions, but I doubt I will want to go back. When I opened the box, my first reaction was drooling and saying "it's so smooth and shiny." It just feels premium. After getting over the first awe and the first kilometre, I knew I need to add some grip to the saddle, hence - foam. And after the first off-road kilometre, I kne

  26. @mrelwood, have no doubt that I also fear my decision. It was a shaky move on my part but a needed one due to my nature and personality. I'm a hedonist, and if I don't take an enough pleasure out of something...then that is not for me. That was what happened with me and the V11. It just felt like a war riding a well behaved nun (no sexual pun intended here, please). It felt damn boring. Of course the suspension was great but those pedals at 22cm height... there are definitely not for me. I is a total pain with my age, weight and height... just to mount it. It always felt like a skyscraper!

  27. dodging bullets is cheaper and less risky. Unless you're made of money, I would strongly suggest against being first adopter of ANY wheels. Tis a folley to assume ANY newly released wheel is an upgrade from ANY wheel you currently own that works.

  28. OMG I love the new Commuter mode!!! Still can’t do 0%, but all the way from 10% to 100% are usable, familiar, comfortable, and effortless. Especially braking, this thing stops in an instant at 30% sensitivity. I feel a lot of GW influences in the behavior, but made much more stable and predictable. And even predicting somehow. I’d think that @houseofjob would like the softer pedal sensitivities quite a bit! One amazing feature was the behavior on relatively steep inclines. It reacted to acceleration and braking as if I was on level ground! I have no idea how they did it. Man I LOVE t

  30. As this topic unfortionately pops up more often lately, here an attempt to consolidate the points regarding this topic. Additions/Improvements/Corrections are heartly welcome! What is your reported battery voltage? This is normally not too accurate - deviations of about 1V are quite normal. Charger Voltage can be (slightly) misadjusted too. So do not expect your 67.2/84/100.8V wheel to report exactly these values once fully charged! Try to remember which values were reported from the new wheel/charger - or better note the full charge (4) battery voltage reported from the wheel when n

  31. EUC's have only three true consumables: tires, bearings, and electricity. Therefore the running cost is extremely low. Technically, yes the battery is a consumable but given its high relative cost vs cost of the vehicle, it should be treated as a non-consumable (good for the life cycle of the product, same goes for motor and control board). Treating the motor & control board as a consumable is like adding engine replacement costs into the maintenance cost of a car. Assuming a conservative 3 year life-cycle, this is how I calculated my cost to commute with a V8F vs my car: Commuting

Before purchasing my Sherman, I wanted to make sure I bought the version with the 1cm ~1/2 inch peddle height increase as well as the updated motor rim/peddle hanger, and waterproof display...

  35. Its healthy for both my mind and body. Before I started riding euc, it was very common I would stay inactive for days at a time. Now I get out almost everyday on an euc, if even for a few minutes. My lower back is stronger, my legs are stronger and my core balance is better. Off-roading builds the knees pretty darn good too. Of course an euc isnt giving me much cardio and it can very easily be a source of injury. Still yet, I think that the euc has helped build me up a bit and keeps me a little happier too. Mind and body connections are strong and happiness can benefit us in many ways. E

As a developer, I know the amount of work that goes into a project like this and I am amazed at what you have done. I left a positive review as I'm sure others will as well!

  37. lol, I think we all got to this realization at some point. The difference in range can be huge. You could go for 120kms+ with the 16x that lasts the whole day, if you are taking it slow. Or you can deplete it in less than 2 hours if you go on full speed all the time and only get ~50kms of range.

  38. Just a typical SLOW ride on the sherman with wife on the scooter. My 18L would've been a better choice but Im trying to get comfy on the beast too. I managed to get pulled astray by a stupid 9' selfie stick in a tree. Isnt it odd how we can TRY to jump out of the way, only to be blatantly bitten by our wheels anyhow? I'm fairly confident my lack of ability and the sheer weight of the sherman was part of the culprit. Parking horns driven into the calves while atached to an 80lb wheel... what could possibly go wrong? Big thanks to my 159 subscribers. Don't worry, I wont call you out so... no fe

  39. Agree with most of your post, except I don't think it's fair to equivocate between Gotway and Veteran 😁 The Sherman is a more refined product that shows that its designers have put a lot more thought into its conception than any Gotway: * Cooling: The waterproof air flow chamber underneath the controller, linked by the heatsink * Alarm: The beeper is attached on top of the case, pointing up so it's easier to be heard by the rider (duh GW!) * Power: 10 parallel lines of power must have seem like such a waste to Gotway people when they first heard about it, but it's what gives the She

The great aspect of euc content so far is that no one is paid to say anything other than our true feelings. Pay/youtube go hand in hand. I know this to be true about all the people I personally watch on youtube and it doesnt both me. It also doesnt bother me that actors and directors are paid to make tv shows.

  41. the unfortunate truth is not ONE creator on youtube in the euc space is ever performing anything remotely scientific. If you think they are then you may want reread the definition of scientific. This is all entertainment based on our personal opinions. if you do not like anyone's content, do not watch it. But do not get it twisted and think anything you see if scientific. its YOUTUBE afterall.

  42. More FUD--the V12 has a traditional motor, not a hollow-bore one. So if someone is concerned about hollow-bore motor issues and wants to buy a new, 100v wheel in the low-to-mid $2ks (versus their next options up at $3200-3700 -- ~50% more), then their *only* options at this point are the Nikola (which is 2 years old, likely has less torque, has a terrible headlight & not great trolley handle, etc) or the forthcoming V12. With the precipitous decline in both consumer & reseller confidence surrounding Begode/Gotway (including the botched RS), the irrelevance of King Song in this mar

  45. No, they have just quoted what actually reads on the tire. GW and Veteran are the outliers here: MSX was suddenly a 19” wheel despite having 18x3.0 clearly stamped on the tire, and Sherman got a free pass to choose whichever number they saw fit since they used a motorcycle tire, which are classified by the rim diameter alone, making an 18” bicycle tire a 14” one. Hence the marking 2.75-14. Recently someone said in the Inmotion chat that they wish Inmotion would come up with a wheel in the 20” category as well, like Sherman. That’s faulty marketing having done its job. I’ve had the She

  46. Because you bet on something is in no way evidence for any conclusion. Very strongly disagree with almost everything you've said here, maybe you're just trolling I don't know. For me, having my hands free makes wheeling far more practical for running small errands than a bicycle. Bikes are endlessly being stolen and owners fret over the possibility whenever they are not nearby. Wheels are far more pedestrian friendly than bikes. Bikes are inconvenient to store on one or both ends of a commute. I've done commuting time on both bike and wheel, I'm much safer on the wheel.

This is around 10 kilometers north east of Altötting, one of the most famous pilgrimage sites in all of Germany: The length of the route is about 25 kilometers and I was passed by about three or four cars over the whole distance. It was such a nice, relaxed ride. Fun fact: in the lower right hand corner of the map you can see the small to

  49. I wouldn't read too much into the EUC World speed statistics. For every enthusiast on this forum, there's 3 or 5 people just bobbing around on a V8 or E+ or so. The average max speed may be low, so what! Doesn't mean anything. Demands on the specs are not determined by the average rider, but by the high demand riders. Also, as we all know, faster wheels are safer wheels, whether you use that speed or not.
