  1. Hi, William from eWheels here. We don't remove any negative reviews. This 16S was not purchased directly from us, and therefore as part of the review program's terms - are not published (as you can see - it's marked "unverified" in the original image). We have zero control over this. This is to ensure a company isn't trolled with negative reviews of products not bought from them. We were then accused of withholding negative reviews (we don't - we have some, as all companies do), and then abused with words I will not type on the forum. We then offered to refund the customer for his Sherma

  3. Hello EUF users, I hope you're all staying healthy and positive during the pandemic. I am sharing some improvements and changes from the latest batch to Begode RS (with pictures) The left and right positions of the RS LED logo, buzzer and BT audio module have been changed. Changed from the old green instrument cluster to red LEDs. (this is an obvious setback since visibility is very poor) The module of the DC subboard was separated from the main board and installed in the original BT audio space. Waterproof and dust-proof would help

  4. I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone (except maybe @NastyFartPants ) who offered their footage for us to use during the Lifestyle Expo that we attended for the weekend just gone. You have some awesome footage that definitely helped grab the attention of those wandering past. We were fortunate to be able to secure a large space - 9m × 9m (about 10yd square) - which meant that we were able to demonstrate and even get (brave) volunteers up on wheels to try them out. Having said that, spending 4-5 hours a day for 3 days riding in such a small space is very challenging and while w

  6. Ok so from a female perspective... Being in control and confidant is sexy, being a show off or inconsiderate of those around you isn't! But if you are talking wheels (not riders) then I have say the S18 is the sexiest looking wheel available (especially when fitted with a Bodyguard)

  7. The rider in the video sped through a red light at a pedestrian crossing, at high speed, would have hit a child, causing serious injury or death, had it not been for the mother pulling the child back just in time. The rider did this knowingly and intentionally, as he was yelling at the pedestrians to get out of the way from quite a distance prior, when the traffic light was already red. He had ample time and opportunity to stop but chose not to do so. The rider did not seem to be concerned with the safety of others, as evidenced by the rider's comments that: he would pa

  8. You know what else is wrong? - You calling anyone a DICK at this forum. Read the forum rules again. - You making a review at a vendor’s site who you didn’t but the wheel from. As you showed, this was very politely explained to you by Ewheels in an email, yet you cling onto your own rules for where you should leave a review. - You publishing a bad product review because you chose the wrong product, and/or because you struggled with learning to ride. I suggest you cool down a few degrees before posting anything here. Us moderators have already given you a warning for i

  12. I've learned that for a LOT of older/mature people, the child still lives and shines within. It isnt just riders (thats obvious), but its the look of wonder and joy I see from most people, as I ride up or ride by. A little shine comes to their eyes and they either just smile (without realizing it), or approach and ask questions. You KNOW the kid in them is just dying to be let free, as sometimes they ask questions in a stutter and can't comprehend even the simplest answer. I've also learned that theres a LOT of people dying inside and you can see how they just YEARN to be as carefree and cool

  13. I honestly have no idea how this is even a debate for some as to whether that is okay or not. I just can't wrap my head around it. Thought experiment: I'm riding, I'm slaloming across multiple street lanes like a skier/snowboarder on the slopes(I see people doing this all the time in the new york group ride videos, not just a slight slalom constrained to their one lane/bike path but across multiple like they own the whole street, how annoying would this be for a car or motorcyclist trying to pass), I'm ignoring red lights, I'm blowing through crosswalks, I'm almost hitting pe

  14. I some times wonder whether the low speed of the rental scooters lulls people into a false sense of security. In Auckland CBD the rental e-scooters are limited to 15 kmh (in the suburbs that goes up to 25 kmh). A woman where I used to work who is nearing middle age, doesn't look like she's seen the inside of a gym ever and definitely doesn't understand the concept of moderate eating (I've seen her in action at work functions) thought it was a great idea to hop on a rental scooter with no previous experience and no safety gear. She got about 30 metres down the foot path before coming off, bu

  15. Look at the lack of spokes. This suggests a much larger motor than anything before. The Gotway Monster series had essentially the same motor as the MSX, but with larger spokes. The Veteran Abrams could be a wheel with incredible torque if the magnets are actually further from the axle and the coils are wound for torque. This would bode well for an off-road wheel. The larger wheel diameter should also eat up bumps without the need for suspension. Benefits of having magnets further from the axle: greater moment arm (torque) fit more magnets around the circumference

  16. But you aren’t their customer when it comes to this specific 16S. Their website is a business suite of a shop. To me it’s obvious that it’s not intended to be an open forum for reviews from anybody. Nothing suggests that she wasn’t satisfied with the quality or performance of the product. She simply learned that riding is hard and requires more commitment than she had to spare. She’s probably smart enough to realize that the product was not at fault. A two star review does sound like a moderately bad experience. The 16S was my second EUC. I was stunned and mesmer

  17. Hi everyone. For those newer members who may not know, a few years ago, @Chrissi and I started up Roll.nz (New Zealand's premier EUC store). Selling EUC to New Zealand and EUC Bodyguards globally. Initially our NZ market for EUC was quite small, but it has slowly been growing and now we have reached the point where we are starting to exhibit at Lifestyle Shows, Electric Expos, et cetera. Which is why we would like your help, please. We would like to have a series of videos playing throughout these expos, showing EUC riding... On-road, off-road, tricks or commutes. Group ride vid

  18. According to data sent from the wheel to the app, at 48 % of battery level wheel will throttle speed to ~63 km/h. Wheel is set to "fancier" mode, so speed limit is fixed at 70 km/h. After turning "fancier" mode off, at 48 % wheel reports speed limit at 60 km/h which is a max for this wheel in "normal" mode. Of course I assume that during a ride speed throttling will me more aggressive; I'm going to discharge this wheel today and check how it throttles the speed as the battery gets more and more empty.

  19. I went on a pretty long trip yesterday, around 70km all in all. I rode from Kelheim, Bavaria, through Regensburg to the famous "Walhalla" monument, built by Bavarian King Ludwig I (not II.) from 1831 to 1842. I started out in Kelheim at 9.30 a.m., and I had to arrive at the Walhalla by 13.00 p.m. because I had booked a table at a restaurant near the Walhalla for recharging myself (with Schweinsbraten and Kartoffelknödel) and my V10F (with 230V AC). I covered the distance by riding on a stretch of the famous "Donau-Radweg", which is is 2850km long and runs from the source of the Danube all the

  21. When out riding, I'm very conscious of being a representative of a niche type of transportation that many might be sceptical to. Unfortunately, there are apparently other EUC owners in my area that are less considerate. I haven't met any of them yet, but people I meet keep telling stories about some reckless guys on high speed EUCs and how they hope the police catches them, etc. Clearly those guys are the first that springs to people's minds when they see me, as well. And, legislation etc. aside, that still sucks. Anyways, a small anecdote that made me happy: Yesterday, riding on my

  23. I don't think its dumb at all. People already ride 40+ mph on unicycles through the streets of America. Eventually our options will be a ban or regualtion. I think there is a large chunk of riders who would gladly comply with regulation than be stuck with 25 mph wheels. The argument of "go get a motorcycle" is nonsense. Its a completely different experience. You could make the same argument against motorcycles, why not just go get a car? There are a bunch of EUC that are not meant to be motorcycles you are correct. But units like the Sherman and Monster Pro are clearly intended to b

  24. Mod notice: We consider the V12 released now. To separate speculation, wishes, and pre-release information, as well as all the semi-related tangents that the V12 thread produced, it has been renamed to Inmotion V12 (pre-release) and locked. This is the new V12 thread. Feel free to make your own topic(s) about all things V12 as well! - I got my v12 on Sunday. I preordered ages ago from eevee’s in Vancouver.

  25. I've been riding in Santa Cruz, CA near the beach and university. I get a LOT of smiles and positive comments from the young beach/hippy/college chicks there. A couple weeks ago I passed a couple girls on a beach trail and one yells out "You're cool!" and I couldn't tell if she was being facetious or not so I yelled back: "I'm from the future. I'm your son." She froze in her tracks, it was epic.

I am perfectly capable of reading and comprehending. I read the entire thread and see you are throwing a hissy fit because a private company did not allow you to post about a product that you did not buy from them. Their policy seems reasonable to me.

  27. The problem with leaving a negative a review like this on ewheels site. Is that you didnt purchase the wheel there.. If you did purchase it there and spoke to them first about what you were looking for, you probably would have been given advice against that wheel. The argument can be made that you would have nothing negative to say about the wheel then. While i don't agree with removing negative reviews.. I do agree with why this one isn't published. I see nothing wrong with ewheels only wanting verified purchasers reviewing the wheels they bought from their site. They have no cont

  28. Okey time for a new update. A few things has happened since I wrote last on this review. I bought a 2nd V11 (build April 2021), to ensure I always had a V11 up and running. But because of my butterfingers and clumsy mind I managed to either fry a driver board (lower mounted board) or a motor. I am still not sure which or even if main board (top mounted board) is damaged too. So yesterday I had a fair bit of part arrining. 2x set of drive board, main board. 1 new motor (this is properly the most interesting part) and new BT module for my 1st batch V11 and a few other minor things.

  29. We got access to a kart circuit for an event. We were missing an RS so we couldn't beat the kart lap record (4 seconds behind with the s18) but it was loads of fun. Looks deceptively slow on footage but it was a thrill. Challenging too, because the bends are at an angle so even high pedals can scrape against the surface while turning.

  30. I've been riding a 100v Nik+ as my primary wheel for well over a year and thousands of miles (to the point of thoroughly wearing the tread off the original CST C-1488 tire), and despite becoming 'accustomed' to it and overall enjoying its functional speed & range, I still always felt like it was awkwardly wide and turned horribly at speed (what some here call 'gyro effect')--and it seemed that no amount of skill or experience with it could really overcome these wheel characteristics, instead I merely learned to live/deal with them. (Which I have been doing in part due to financial impact o

  31. It's a shame really because the sentiment behind this thread is very heartfelt around the globe. Here in the UK they've recently officially made EUC's illegal and imposed fines, confiscation of your wheel and removing half the points from your drivers license (ie if it happens twice then you can't drive). Why's this happened? because young (and sometimes not so young) idiots ride around with no respect for others. It's mostly been escooter riders here in the UK (simply because there are more of them) but I went on a group EUC ride and people were riding fast on crowded footpaths accompanied by

  32. You can at least take heart in the "Good" reviews out there, which does indicate that a huge number of owners were lucky with the way their S18 arrived to them! I knew full well what I was getting into with my early batch S18, but had planned and prepared to strip and re-build it straight out of the box. Since doing so to my own exacting standards (I have a Full strip down topic describing the process here) I have had nothing but a great experience with my S18, with No issues whatsoever to report! The more recent batches of the S18 have had many of the early issues resolved, but som

  33. There’s also the aspect that I don’t think these kinds of riding videos hold any monetary value ATM. For one, if I’d ask for money for using my videos, they’d just skip my videos and use someone else’s who is willing to give them out for free. Secondly, we’ve all made these videos for free, to be watched for free in the first place. Same could actually be said for the time we spend on the forum and local meetups helping newbies and other riders as well. One could say that using our time and expertise should hold monetary value like it often does in the society. But that would be co

The other day, I was actually just out taking the trash & a car was driving by and the person driving saw me & waved to me. I hope my riding around & this behavior can make everyhone smile a little more & be a little bit more friendly-- something I think society in general can use.

  37. You don't know a thing about me or my life experiences to be making any judgements on my ability to make an informed decision on the parts of this conversation I have chosen to participate in. In fact your assumptions are condescending, which seems to be one of the few ways you are able to communicate. No amount of riding a EUC will alter my morals and ethics. That comes from a good upbringing, having empathy for others, and doing my best to communicate with common courtesy. Something you may want to consider if you are at all serious about having meaningful discourse. I have to agree wit

I would not have done it, except for the request by a forum member. I'm computer challenged, and it took me a ten second goog search to find it. But it’s not the video, it’s the mentality of the riders at issue: “Outta my way” ! That is the issue. Our clucking about it won’t change those people’s attitudes one bit.

  39. Just test drove the v12 for a few hours. I’m coming from a 16x mainly. For the first 45min all I did was play with settings. This thing can ride so much differently with setting changes it’s crazy. It felt way more stable then 16x over 30km/hr. I’m a big dude, and I don’t plan on going over 50km. The customization is fun, you can brake with the unit floating u back a little bit, or you can stiffen it up and stop without pedals leaning back. It was great, v12 felt weird at first but I knew it was good when I went back to my 16x and the 16x felt like poop comparatively.

  41. Heavy off-road EUC for girls? Despite its impressive weight, size and tricky handling on bumps, the Bublik is surprisingly easy to learn in basic terms on asphalt. The ability to start sitting down and get used to the heavy machine on your own is very friendly, especially for girls. The lateral support in the knee (and not in the ankle, as on conventional EUC) allows painless control of wheel inclination without much physical training. People with good balance, after getting used to sitting riding, can simply step on the pedals and continue to ride while standing ... In shor

Someone asked a question yesterday that I’m sure you have been asked, “How do you balance on that thing.” I said, in my perfect Yoda impression (at least, in my head it sounds spot on), “Come from within, the balance does.” We laughed, but then it’s really true. I started riding after a series of unfortunate life events and found EUC’s to be the most effective therapists for me at that time. I’ve often had that thought while wheeling, but never shared it out loud. We rely on things outside of us. When first learning to ride EUC’s, my body freaked out and wanted to grab on to something f
