  1. EUC World use system settings, so you can change it in Android settings. 1. Good idea. I've added "Persistent LED mode" to my "to-do" list. 2. Consider getting Flic 2 button. While it's little overpriced, after all convenience it gives is worth spending 30 USD. You can attach it to the helmet or somewhere else and you have three actions in one button. It's way more handy than smartwatch button and there is no problem operating it with even most thick, winter gloves. More, you can add up to two Flic buttons to EUC World, so you'll get six actions. To save money you can arrange a gr

  2. Exactly, that's what I asked Gotway, why they don't offer a RS Speed and Torque with 2700wh. The answer was we have something different. Few days later.....EX.N. 😕 The EX shell without suspension is not bad, but using RSS motor with even more speed (for sure less torque) is sucks. I'm interested in EX.N with 2700wh and RS Torque motor or EX 3500W motor.

  3. Gotway employee rode the Monster Pro 541 miles from Gotway factory to San Ya City. Rider weighed 132 lbs. and carried a 22 lbs. backpack. His average speed was 18 mph and the ride took him 28.5 hrs. He was able to ride about 100 miles on one charge with 10% (79.9v) battery remaining.

  4. Upcoming release will include helluva lot of new features and improvements. This is why it takes more time for me to make it working and thoroughly tested. Trust me, it's worth to wait I hope to release new EUC World update in the first half of December.

  5. Since the EX didn't interest me in the slightest, I haven't looked at the Ecodrift teardown yet. But after I just did it, I'm not sure if I really want the EX.N just because of more battery. I am speechless after seeing the speakers, the speaker housing, the cooler with the air duct. Especially the huge hole that should theoretically be used for the heat dissipation, but which can't work in practice. The only thing that works is that the dirt is accurately swirled into the housing. Is the EX the Ecodrift may have the first prototype or are they really serious about selling somet

  6. My kind of topic I learned how to ride early 2019 and started riding for real from May 2019. Wheels I owned: V5F - 1000km 2019 May-July (sold because it is just not enough as main transport) Nikola - 2400km July-Oct (sold because of various small problems and a good offer) MCM5 V1 -1400km Sept-May (sold, low clearance kills the otherwise most fun wheel I had) 16X - 3300km Oct-April (sold, constant water damages) MSP HT - April-July 2300km (sold, this wheel is not convenient at all...fun climbs tho) Mten3 - 300km April- (has 2500km now, sister used it fo

  8. I have pleasure to announce that Nylon fiber reinforced pedals with pegs and openers for S18 NyloNove are finally ready. ;-) Those pedals should be standard on S18 - especially for those who want to use it off-road! Pedals are around 100 grams lighter than original (364 grams each instead of 458 grams if counted with openers and axis) Angle is around 1° higher than standard - 79° instead of 80° Asymmetric shape, slightly wider on the front and thinner on the back. 19 pcs of stainless steel pegs with regulation 2-4 mm, stainless steel axis, stainless steel pedal axis scr

  9. This is my comprehensive account of All that is likely to be involved in fixing each of the known and some Newly discovered issues with the King Song S18. I would like to preface this write up by saying that I was fully aware of the can of worms the early batch S18 can pose and during my pre-order period I had plenty of time to opt out, especially given the disdain from some quarters that has been aimed at the S18. My opinion is that this disdain should really be aimed purely at King Song themselves and Not at the wheel! Added to that, it has been very difficult to get any specific clar

  10. I always find it interesting to see just how many miles people are using their euc's. Not how long does a wheel last, how fast do they go, where they go blah blah blah. Eucw tracks miles and its cool to see, but a lot of us don't use eucw or only sometimes. I thought it might be fun to see how many miles you guys are racking up and over how long a duration. I'll start with my pitiful specs added up across the 4 wheels I've owned and the 1 year I've been riding. Luckily for me, I joined the forum about the time I learned to ride. Maybe not lucky for you.. 1year 18L 555miles (888km)

  11. 100% true. I wish this were more true, but my few years observing this community has lead me to the literal opposite conclusion. Although while I 'think' I'm right on this one, ultimately I *hope* you're right. ¯\_ (ツ)_/¯ We'll call it a draw/more data needed. ;-)

  12. The mental gymnastics here never cease to amaze. *Of course* the EX was direct knee-jerk response to the V11 & S18--a very rushed and poorly thrown-together suspension, cobbled together with other usual Gotway high-performance tech. The fact that the subset of its more usual Gotway tech puts it in a different category of performance and range doesn't change the fact that the wheel's very existence was a direct response to the V11 & S18, and an extremely-poorly-reviewed one at that.

  13. Someone's going to have to disassemble their production wheel and have a look. Let's hope at least some better, professional plastic parts are used. As for the design... idiosyncrasies (I'm trying to be positive here)... who knows.

  14. I'm in the same boat as @rogueone. First time wheeler and dropped my v11 preorder for a 16x. So glad I did. Love this wheel and ride after work every day on average 25 to 35km. I did take it apart to add foam and silicone to internal areas where dust and water could get in (thanks to @buell47's tutorial, (Ithink it was)). Perfect for the city streets with stop and go and manuevering/ torque.

  15. I'm a first-time EUC buyer and I dropped my V11 pre-order for a lightly-used Kingsong 16X because its been out for awhile, seems like a mature product, and appears to survive abuse from learning. For a future EUC, I'm thinking I'll wait for batch 6 of the V11 or whatever EUC comes around that offers easy tire changes (I'm also a biker). The saddle of the V11 and the trolley handle of the Gotway RS is what made me hesitate to get them. No hurry on my end for the latest and greatest.

  16. i did sell them. that’s every wheel I’ve owned, not every wheel I currently own. Besides, where I live EUC is a viable car replacement. Don’t need to travel 20 miles to buy groceries.

  17. A 61824 bearing is rated for like 6000 lbf of load and 130 mph continuously lol. It's specced more for size/fitment and well beyond the needs of the device, and a decent bearing should last well beyond the life of any EUC. Can anyone with a failed bearing take a pick and pop off one of the side seals and see how much grease is inside? I'm curious if they were just too lazy to pack enough grease in there from the get-go.

  18. Yeah this photo of rider and wheel caught my eye for size comparison too. Can't tell how far back the rider is standing from the wheel. I have my heart set on this wheel, but I'm only 5'4" so I'm also concerned about maneuverability and comfort. I had a Monster and that was no problem, but this one at 100lbs and taller than the Monster has me waiting and watching before I buy. Well the size and long-term reliability of the hollow motor bearings both have me waiting. Here is a size comparison of all Gotway wheels:

  19. @pico Got it. I can see why, now. mten3 being small with less vertical contact on the shins. And not much counter weight at 20 lbs. The knee is really just surrounded by connective tissues + knee cap. You can palpate & feel the bones - not much cushioning there. I think the pain is from the counter pressure we apply on the EUC especially if repetitive. When I was learning, I found that my mtb hard-shell knee/shin guards (lizard skinz softcell) almost eliminates knee/shin discomfort and highly recommend it especially for crash protection. Thanks for the write-up, fellas.

  20. Same thing here. It wasnt my muscle failiing me, as much as a pretty mean sharp pain in the joint. The smaller wheels are worse as the leverage seems much less. Mten is more an ankle chore than knee. I notice my weak side has this same issue in hi speed cornering on my heavy wheel. I'd imagine a buckling in the knee at speed in a turn, would upset the ride enough to crash my ass off the mountain. Delicate balance to build muscle around a knee, but NOT aggravate the joint first. Sometimes just regular mounting a wheel is too much on one side. I bet Pico can jumplike a damn frog too. I ad

  28. So guys today has become the day when a new chapter started in my EUC history. Or that is slightly incorrect as it started the other day or last night. I recorded my new Inmotion stuff on Tuesday. A shipment of Inmotion official seat, hex pedals and sidepads. You might have seen pictures if these by now. If not I will share a few here. But before we start to do a proper test you need a reference point. Since it is starting to become winter here now at my place the weather is one of the the issues why I ordered the items above.

  30. The more I ride on this CST C6004, the more and more it inspires confidence! I personally think it is going be a very hard tire to beat as an All round option, having only just tried it on some loose off road trails this morning for the first time and coming home even more impressed! IMHO, the genuine motor cycle tires are the Only way I will go in future for both the Sherman and the S18, as the usual standard EUC/bicycle tires just cannot compare in performance, toughness and longevity!

  32. If I had to evaluate each of my criterions separately, based on what I can read on this forum, am I close to the truth if I summarize like that ? Safety power margin at 40km/h (GPS) and 25% battery : V11=A / 16X=B Emergency brake : V11=C / 16X=B Convenience (urban commuter, shops) : V11=C / 16X=B Acceleration / Torque : V11=B / 16X=A Weather proofing : V11=A / 16X=C Comfort : V11=A / 16X=C DIY repairs : V11=D / 16X=B Then, I'll have to agregate criterions and balance with price. Note that if I take that and put points (A=4 ... E=1) then both wheel

  33. That's what I was thinking... IMO, it'd be much easier and safer (depending how you look at it), to just toss these two extra batteries in your backpack/waistpack and run a cord down to the XT60/XT90 (not sure which the S18 uses) to parallel them in... Just like a lot of Oneheelers do to extend their range. How much do the two extra battery packs cost? Ewheels doesn't have them on the website and I don't see them listed on any other sites online (have't checked Ali yet, though).

In that bracket i'd personally wait until i could get my hands on the Tesla v3 1500w or just jump on the Tesla v2 (but you state that is not enough for you) maybe you could talk to eucservice.com about modifying the battery of whatever wheel you end up getting ( if it doesn't come with 1500w+ battery by default)

  39. I have sold the worst of the bunch after only 12 miles. Some of us just don't have as much daylight time to ride, as other things tend to get in the way. I can say I have plenty of miles on the wife tho ! To be fair, I do have a TON of other hobbies as well. TO fit the euc ride time in, I have had to let a few of those suffer. It may be blasphemy, but euc riding is just a part of my already busy life. Given how much you ride your wheels, shouldnt you sell a few and do something else too? I do ride daily, but sometimes I've just enough time for a few minutes.... such is life.

  40. my bad, as in SOLID wheel. I was commenting more on the overall wheel, not focusing on the shell alone. If it wasnt an overall 'solid' wheel, I doubt it would be one of the regs for the nyc crowd. TBH, the shell quality and lack of waterproofing has been a main reason I dont onw a gotway...yet! My standards are slowly lowering to the euc standards tho.

  49. Agreed. It's awfully windy where I am & worse, we're esp susceptible to high(er) speed wind gusts (which IMO is even worse). There's oft times where I going along & suddenly, it's like I'm being pushed hard to one side. They're definitely sphincter moments that makes riding not very fun. That said, I've recently discovered that the little Mten3 is best for riding in those particular condition where I'd definitely retire the big(ger) wheels. I don't know if its because of the slower speeds, or lower CG but it seems to handle windy condtions very well.
