  1. It's a small board the size of the bluetooth module. You swap the BT module with it > power up the EUC > LEDs blink for a minute. When LEDs show ready the update is done you can power off and put back the BT.

  3. I will definitely enjoy it on the upcoming weekend holiday. Thank you. Regards. I was doing different things at the same time, so I couldn't focus on this. For almost two weeks, I worked 3-4 hours a day. I think I have invested a total of 50 hours. My euc hobby activities motto is, "Enjoy your way to your destination" I look forward to riding anything safe and enjoyable. Thank you.

  5. That Zen moment I remember quite well. I didnt realize what this was until few weeks later, I read a post where someone wrote about it. I had been riding my 16X for hmm, a total of 600-800 miles or something, and I went out one weekend with full charge to just my usual plan less riding here and there. I rode around town a while and got bored, due I have seen most of the places where the bicycle paths have been taken me. I was thinking of going north out of the town this time, so I went and way out I found some gravel roads and small roads along the shoreline. There was a lot of things to look

  7. I was able to loosen an S18 suspension's barrel nuts coated in red loctite using a simple soldering iron that heats up to 350 degrees. 2 days ago I coated one of my spare barrel nut threads with red loctite. With an application of heat on the barrel head generated by a soldering iron I was able to loosen the barrel nut and screw without striping the hex out of the barrel and screw. I applied heat to the surface of the barrel nut for approximately 15 minutes allowing the heat to radiate through the entire nut and bolt. The heat process softened the loctite enough where the disassembly

  8. 200 km english review from euc.sale edit: He feels the lower pedals make it more stable with better handling and performance, which makes sense. He compares it to the Monster. I prefer the lower pedals here and I’m glad gotway did that. I think ultimately manufacturers need to have pedal height adjustment for different user preferences, like the S18 does.

  9. Hello all! As You know the Kingsong S18 is really nice wheel with suspension. One of the main drawback of this wheel is the small battery - build from 60 pcs of 2170 cells in the 20s3p setup. This can be quite dangerous, especially in winter when Li-Ion cells are cold and they can not provide enough current, creating risk of cut-out or quick battery degradation due to too high current draw / voltage sag. I have solved this problem by creating first in the world S18 with 80 cells - so proper setup for such 2200W motor - 20s4p setup build from original cells (complete battery packs) from Kingson

  10. I noticed about a week ago that something in how I enjoy my euc's has changed. It's almost as if it happened all of a sudden but nearly unnoticed. I grabbed my favorite wheel, hit the button and trolleyed out to the driveway. Newly graveled, its quite a task to ride in. Without even thinking about it, I hopped on the wheel and rode thru it and off into the cool evening air. It was then, as I smoothly weaved back and forth and effortlessly looked around the fall trees I realized I had ridden off without thinking about it and am now casually enjoying my ride as if the wheel is just reading my

  11. This is quite simply the most awesome wheel I have even seen. Gotway Monster range in an MSX/MSP form factor, and with the new hollow motor too. If I could have any wheel on the planet right now, it would be this.

  12. They are properly sealed on the Troque. As for the shell protrusion, i understand your concern. On the s18 i bashed the frame corner on number of curbs, and it really bothered me. However for the RS it hasn't been an issue so far. I think this is for 3 reasons. It is pretty high, higher than any curb you would bonk at speed. It is angled away from the wheel, so the outside corners are much less likely to hit than if it was square. There is still almost 2" of tire sticking past it. If you're planning on hitting a 6" curb hard enough to bottom out, then you'll hit your shell. But i

  16. That guy definitely knows his stuff. He takes the initial impact on his hands and then transfers to his should/back and rolls/slides it out. One of the worst types of falls is the one at the end. When you are standing relaxed and hit an invisible stump, this shifts the wheel and you get teleported to the ground. Still he fell into a push-up and then rolled it out at the very end to avoid bearing it all on his chest or chin. Out of our 50 riders in the group none have hurt their wrists except for me and that was at very low speed. I stretched out my left hand to catch myself. Scaphoid prot

In the same video he put in links for 2 other wrist guards that he recommends (the Demon Snow Flexmeter Wrist Guard you've mentioned and the CTHOPER Impact Wrist Guard): https://youtu.be/YyDR4JThGtA In another video Chooch recommended wearing heavy duty leather gloves with the wrist guards wrapped around it (like a 2-in-1 combo). 2.

  18. Afer read full ecodrift.ru preview 2 things shock me . Ok no more coments about pedal hanger height i hope they fix this in torque model. First is this my opinion is this is strong weakpoint to water ingress: Second one is more dangersous ,same problem what Veteran sherman have is to close case to tire vulnerable to hit curbs and obstacles. I critise this on veteran but! Veteranb use cage here is only plastic. Oh noooooooo why gotway/begode why ? other angle (detail) Classic MSP is realy better designed for trail/curbs/obstacles. Yes i understand they change

  19. I have to say, this sounds utterly epic. Even more impressive is the way you have done the online registration showing who is riding on what day, on what wheel. Plus the maps and detailed explanation of each day. Having not only a raffle Sherman and EV charging plug, but also putting your very own 18XL up as well (a real nice gesture) just makes the whole thing really slick and professional. Some real thought, time and logistical planning gone on here, very impressed indeed Marty

  20. When people ask me what is that, I tell it is a SMA (senior mobile assistant). Of course, you have to be seniors (age 60-65 and above, depends on your location) to say that. I feel good and proper to say that. It gives others the impression that I am not wheeling around just for fun or to annoy others. But I am a proud senior appreciating/making use of this modern invention to get around and at the same time promoting its potential use for other seniors. Preferably, they learn to ride them before they are too seniors One time I and my wife went to Angel Island in San Francisco which has

  21. FWIW everyone forgets this design originated from the 18” MSuperV3 many moons ago, and that wheel was much more like this RS19, slightly lower pedals for a more weight balanced wheel. When they made the jump from MSV3 to MSX, they had to drop the wheel to accommodate for the extra 1” in the 19” tire. Combining that with higher pedal height that riders at the time were asking for, and the fact that the shell design was not changed (still relatively not changed with the RS19 some 3+ years later!), the pedal-to-top-of-shell height was significantly reduced, hence why they went with the pedal

  24. Yes! I remember it well, It was right before the wind pushed up the edge of a plastic net fence catching my pedal and sending me to the ground. It is the same day that I felt that I was one with the asphalt.

  26. It may not be a cause for major concern unless you are noticing pedal dipping and motor cable melting. If you have the thicker guage cables then you should be on a recent enough FW to be safe and stable. They may have just changed their naming system. Perhaps @Seba could tell between them somehow, or contact@Linnea Veteran

  27. I think running the fan non stop is great for cooling and board longevity, board stays around 29-32 C, and honestly i’d rather replace a fan than a control board. Yes, it is a bit noisy, but unless you’re in a quiet room it’s no big deal.

  28. I personaly use this: Ennui urban glove have great mix practicality(you can eat burger) airflow and protection. If you looking for winter version find some snowboard gloves what you like. Wear wrist guards VS moto/bike gloves i think is about weight cooch is lightweight and immortal "young" guy. For riders who is normal or heavy weight i recomended wristguard definetly becasue more weight more energy what wrist need absorb in case fall. Cheap solution is cheap wristguard and use standard gloves over wristguard (work gloves or bike/motocross gloves ) High speed cr

  30. All clear! Murland says the tire fits anyway. Are the beeper and the RS light/Logo properly sealed between the shell or the same shit? But it doesn't change anything, I have now canceled my order, I feel screwed if I would buy this wheel. Lower pedals, pedal angle more flat, bigger shell, lower shell and the shell protrudes too far forward at the bottom corner (same problem Veteran has), fake beeper above the RS logo and real beeper inside housing again, big gap for dust and dirt between shell and RS logo, 2kg heavier....sounds not like an upgrade to my MSP anymore.

  31. After playing a round and a half today, I rode up on my mten and asked the attendant about it. He said I'd have to ask the owner. As I stood there, it occurred to me that I will unlikely get permission for the simple liability concerns. Its no secret that riding an euc around is more likely to wind in injury than simply walking. I won't hold my breathe about it, but i will see if i can ride around the hood with my club bag on my back. I did get asked by a few older golfer what the damn euc was. I am pretty sure that noone would really be angry about it and most would just chuckle. But, this co

EcoDrift pictures of the RS: Russian Original - English (Bing Translator) EcoDrift disassembles the RS (and compares to MSP and MSX): Russian Original - English (Bing Translator) All picture credit goes to @EcoDrift. Build quality seems to be the usual... don't look too close I don't think anybody expected anything else. New motor is nice though!

  37. Another problem with V11 is that in reality, it doesn't have 1500 Wh battery but only 1456 Wh. More, V11 enters low battery mode at 3.3V/cell. While you can activate "go home" mode, it allows you to go to 3.15V/cell, which translates into just 3-5 km more. At the same time XL will go to 3.0V/cell. Limited range is also the biggest disappointment for me in this otherwise perfect wheel.

  39. I think you are pretty much spot on with your assessment. Of course, you can't REALLY know what you will ask of a wheel, once you put another 1,000miles on the pavement. Just as a side note, the weight of a wheel isnt really that big a factor as far as ride quality. Some heavier wheels are nimble and some lighter wheels handle like a tank. Where you REALLY need concern of the weight is when carrying it. If you don't have a LOT of stairs and dont plan on having to lift the wheel much, you can somewhat ignore the overall weight and focus on what people say about it's ride characteristics. @Meser

  43. To be fair, a large contributor to this problem in EUC land is the language barrier and poor translations. That combined with the fact that these companies aren't great at communicating like a proper modern business (in any language)--with poor or in Veteran's case non-existent websites and enthusiasts left trying to find information piecemeal through the grapevine across forum & social media posts. (Honestly this is an even bigger problem than the language barrier/translation issue. If they at least did a good job on a native language website the internet could crowd-source reliable trans
