  1. Please stay on topic (Dogs chasing EUC riders) and on the right side of the border between what is a strong expression of an argument and what is a personal insult. Thanks

  2. Day 2: I've been riding for over an hour on asphalt today (I got the MSP cover from roll.nz on the wheel, it doesn't fit perfectly but it sorta works). Yesterday I didn't feel I had much steering control, just following wherever the wheel decided to go. Today I managed to ride around in large circles, then large figure 8s. I was able to speed up and slow down, more or less at will. I've only had 2-3 hours total time on the wheel, so predictably I'm still not very confident and my steering isn't very precise. I'm a bit wobbly at times and I flail my arms around a lot. BUT: I'm not fin

  3. it’s not “protective gear” so starting here, feel free to move if needed. My fingers freeze with gloves, and mittens just work better. But then I have to take them and the wrist guards off to do anything at all—solution: ice fishing gloves! They work surprisingly well, fingers do get cool but not frozen and they fit nicely in my wrist guards. A smidge too tight in my flexmeters, but the flexmeters are sized for no gloves and too expensive to replace (naive when I bought them, and it was summer) KastKing PolarBlast Ice Fishing Gloves Convertible Mittens - Cold Weather Fishing Mitte

  4. Another datapoint: I have a two local experienced trail riders who cannot ride their desired terrain using C30 without board overtemp and also frequent overlean. Both are 200lb+ with AT tires and big power pads. Below is a notional diagram of the differences; note that the 'normal operation' region is possible with both designs.

  5. had a short ride with the new RS firmware, way different and better for sure, no more crazy deep in medium/soft mode, need to ride more....shitty weather right now

  6. Unfortunately I can't test a MSP/RS with a C30 motor here to see if it meets my requirements. I can only buy and test it myself. On the one hand I want both, best torque and highest speed, because on my usual tours I always have mixed terrain. So there is no point in buying a torque and a speed version, which would be no problem, but I can't solve my problem this way. So I have to decide what is most important to me. A hard decision if you want it all, but I know where I have the most fun and that are difficult trails through the woods. We don't have a lot of mountains here, no

  7. Scary!! ... If this were an American company a very aggressive recall would be sent out. Instead app developers are being told to hide the firmware info. I am not condemning Veteran. I am just saying that we live in a very different world.

  8. My son was just bitten on the leg, so now we carry a cocked and locked 9mm Glock sidearm. It’s loaded with a solution of ammonia, a couple of drops of dish soap, and water. Little kids squirt guns you can pick up at the dollar store for you guessed it a buck. Fits easily in your jacket pocket and with just a couple of squirts in the direction of the dog and he’s done! If he’s still persistent unholster your backup...

  9. It is not and should not be my responsibility to become an expert on or even to have to consider the psychology of someone else's pet to go about my daily life in public. People doing a perfectly acceptable thing like riding a bike/PEV/etc in human spaces (not out tormenting wildlife in a national park on a dirtbike or something) should be free to do so without fear of being attacked or having an accident caused by someone else's pet which is not being properly controlled. It is pet owners' responsibility to train their animals how to behave appropriately in public, or such animals don't belon

My go-to for off leash animals (and their owners) is a whistle. it's part of my EDC Specifically the fox 40 whistle (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000071K5K) it's loud and discordant like you wouldn't believe... loud enough to get the attention of of a Roller Derby gal starting to throw hands. it is loud enough to get the dog to think you are bigger than they can handle, and loud enough to completely derail the most deranged karen.

  17. Woot, there it is, right on cue! Another not so thinly veiled reference to my sexual preferences by a loving conversational person. I do like pussy, and yet I’m slight in stature. So I carry my ammonia laced concoction as protection from those mean nasty dogs and an engaged holster for the human animal. I have deployed its use several times to my advantage. I realize that some of my content is shocking to some, so I try to veil my liberty to some extent. Yes veiled reference to killing a dog with a firearm is a little over kill.

  19. It seem Veteran isn't just a regular competitor to Gotway, perhaps they represent the silver bullet that slays the performance king. It's one thing to pursue former employees who go rogue, but to spend the time and money on patent legal fights shows just how much of a threat Veteran is. I guess Gotway's route to go to the courtroom instead of the engineering lab to beat Veteran shows in their resent product quality and design choices. I wonder how Jason at eWheels fits into this puzzle?

  21. This isn't Gotway suing Veteran for stealing their design. It's Gotway buying the original Inventist patent and suing Veteran for infringing on Inventist's design. I'm guessing they couldn't sue Veteran for stealing their design because Gotway doesn't hold any patents to sue over.

  22. @DjPanJan I agree, the fumes from an EUC have to be AWFUL. And so, you don't "put out" an EUC fire, you let it burn out. This is the most violent EUC explosion I've seen so far. The "li-ion runaway" takes like 10s, afterwards it's just a normal fire (mostly plastic). Looks flashy, but the tree 1m away is perfectly fine, the pavement is smoldered, but otherwise unscathed. I'm 99% certain that in a normal, brick garage with no flammables within like 4m nothing major would happen - the wheel would explode, burn and cool down. Such fire alone is not enough to destroy the walls or the f

  23. My plan is to get the wheel outside at all costs. If its too damn hot to approach, I'll use a broom. If its too hot for that and I cant breathe, I'll still try and bathe the room in water. Not to put the wheel out, but to prevent my walls and ceiling from burining.. Being near it when it catches, I would hope i can react quickly. Being electrocuted is much less ever a worry of mine, than an explosion or fire. If i kill the power to the house, my well stops. If i was on city water pumps, i'd kill the power and flood the room. I would also empty ALL my fire extinguishers as nearby flammables bec

  24. @UniVehje above wrote exactly the post I was going to. Marty and WrongWay didn’t have any experience or good instructions for disassembling the wheel. You do. If you know how to follow instructions and how to operate a screwdriver, the process is not dangerous, and it shouldn’t take you more than 2 hours, tops.

  25. Someone linked me to this thread saying they saw one of my videos linked here. Congrats on your GotWay RS. A solid choice. Although the Sherman is weighty, I would say it wound have been doable as the Sherman is stable and a durable wheel going straight if you picked it as your first wheel. The parts are expensive though. I suggest that you print a bumper for your rs for the headlights to protect it from popping out if you drop it. Known issue. Ride every day and you’ll get better quick. As you’re just learning you want to ride as much as you can to build those fine fast twitch muscles and mus

  27. I like you guy you're like the angry neighbor chasing a weasel with a shovel. Every neighborhood needs one. You made me chuckle but your issue is understandably frustrating to the nth degree. The truth is these companies don't test them enough and release beta products. The market gets new tech and process repeats. Some people tell me thats just the universe works and thats part of the contract you signed when you joined The Firm. From my viewpoint outside the cult I do think Inmotion is the best company out there from a sophistication, development and safety standard...but each of

  29. This is an interesting thread...! I have 2 dogs and as much as I like to think it may be possible to outrun one on an EUC it simply is not, they will get you in the acceleration/sprint every time. Both my dogs go from zero to full speed in about 4-5 strides and they can keep pace with a terrified and stampeding heard of deer (ya, perhaps don't ask me how I know this). When training them we needed to desensitize them to everything imaginable. Wheelchairs, crutches, little kids, little kids on bikes etc. etc. After spending hundreds of hours with each of them doing this they now see almost

  30. I've been working on a video to demonstrate the 5s gap between alarms, which is the main factor that lead to @EUChristian's crash in my opinion. Here's a preview of the full video. In short, some early conclusions. I was able to replicate the 5s gap on the V10F The alarm behavior, when tested in specific conditions is flawed, unpredictable and erratic Tilt-back behavior is inconsistent with alarms Tilt-back happens too slowly and does not trigger at all is some conditions In the demo video, pedals tilt forward instead of back.

  32. HT or HS is not about what a wheel can do or not becouse they can do all, no doubt, it's about rider preference. All 84v wheels like mcm5 and tesla can do all the hills you want, expecially the evergreen 84v msx. 100v wheels has a bit more... pick HT or HS thinking about your usual speed-range and your environment, flat or not @buell47 explain the difference really well imho !

  35. The fumes are toxic, I agree with that, but I disagree about the rest. The only things that works for Li-ion fires is good old water. CO2, poweder, etc, makes absolutely no sense for Li-ion fires, because the battery makes its own oxygen. It will burn even in an atmosphere of pure inert gas. The only thing you can do is to cool it down with water. It's not like with mains where the ground acts as another pole to the live wire. Using water for these battery devices is safe. Using water for devices connected to mains is not. If your pc burns, use powder, because you can starve the fire it of

  38. I think the high pitched whine of any EUC drives dogs nuts. I say this because my dog goes slightly crazy whenever I turn on the EUC, and even though I've trained her to trot alongside, if she's unleashed she keeps attacking my foot and leg.

  39. I don't think they have to be exposed to EUCs specifically/the uniqueness of EUCs is irrelevant--exposure to electric scooters and bicycles (which are everywhere) should be enough. I was temporarily living in a small town and not-infrequently had issues with dogs, but then I moved to downtown Denver and even though there are *many* more dogs here, I generally have fewer issues with them (certainly much less frequently than before). My theory is just that the dogs living in the center of a city like Denver are much more used to/desensitized to scooters/bikes/etc all around them, compared t

Oh but wait, the owner always says "he/she doesn't bite" while the dog comes up and bites you on the leg when you have a handful of packages and a scanner in the other hand...

It is my belief that there are no bad dogs and they're bread to chase things, part of being a dog, it's the owners that I have a problem with. Rant ov

  42. Thank you for the advice. I will definitely give it a try. My veteran’s tire was not aligned at all, I tried to center it but I was not happy with results. I found a bicycle shop that was willing to work on an euc and I just got it back last night. Looking at the line on the side of the tire it doesn’t look aligned at all. I rode it for about 5 minutes last night and it looks as straight as it can be. It also feels planted and just wants to go straight. I will take it for a longer ride during my lunch break today.

Same goes when you're on the sidewalks mixing with ppl & or in a busy park. If you don't want stares & open mouth gapes, don't ride the Mten😉.

  47. In the bicycle community the trend is towards tubeless low-pressure tires, and after riding on a few of them I'm convinced that is the best way to go. As the tire provides most of the suspension, then it follows frames can be made extremely stiff. Carbon fiber and steel are liked because they are somewhat compliant, but now with softies one might as well go with extremely stiff lightweight aluminium frames then call it a day (and that's indeed what is happening). And I think the EUC industry isn't far behind (and obviously the electric components are far in advance), as softer wider tires
