  1. Alright! (or is it "all right"? I know that "alot" is supposed to be "a lot".) Anyway, my VS arrived today (west coast to east coast) and I went out for a quick 10km jaunt. Roads should be dry tomorrow and I'll probably take a long-route ride over to Manhattan tomorrow for a good 80km or so. In the meantime, here are my initial impressions. Mind you, my only EUC experience is a King Song 18XL of which I've logged around 1500km over the past three months. Impressions upon unboxing and setting up: 1. Maybe I'm used to slugging the 18XL up a flight of stairs several times a week bu

  2. I'm still wearing my ankle armour but I'm pleased to say they're not taking so many hits at the moment because I've changed my learning strategy. I unsuccessfully and painfully tried to learn by the "step on and go" method featured in many videos. You see sleek young things learning straight away but even the odd times I did get my left foot up roughly in position and leant forwards I couldn't control the wheel and had to step off immediately. I tried to scoot forwards balancing on one leg but my knee couldn't take more than a few goes. And each time I veered off to the right the wheel wo

  3. This reminded me of how I recently killed my V10F with a towel. Not due to riding in mud, but still worth a share so others can be more mindful than me. I had it charging and getting ready for a ride. When I rode home the previous day, it was raining, and I had rested the wheel upright on a thin towel, to keep any dripping rainwater making a mess on the floor. The wheel is all charged up, and I'm all geared up, ready to go. I disconnect the charger, extend the trolley handle, power up the wheel and start heading to the door. just as I move the wheel, I notice the towel is stuck to the bo

  4. If I remember my V10, it was set to 25 km/h or ~15 mph, so it sounds as the default speed. I second @mrelwood’s post about learning at slower speed before heading into 50 km/h area, though. @jmsjms, it’s really, really good idea to keep the factory speed until you have racked up a few hundred miles on EUC. Even I had some very near misses and run-offs during these first few hundred miles that would end badly if I was going twice as fast.

  5. I've had the same thing happen with my 18XL and V11. I don't think there is any wheel out there that isn't going to have this problem. If you ride in the mud long enough, the mud is going to get stuck under the inner shell no matter what.

  6. I've decided for the new year that I will focus on two or three things mostly. 1)Take more risks and readjust my acceptable success/failure ratio. My life is only getting shorter with each year. I do believe that I shall embrace more dangerous activities and accept more risks. All this fear-mongering of 2020 has led me to resist and do quite the opposite. 2)Give less a shit about what people think of me. Yes, there's still room. 3)Spend as much money as I can on trips and toys and fun, but not go in debt and have at least $20 to my name come next year...

  7. I've been doing a bunch of off-roading on my 16X. The winter mud really ruins the grip of even super course Vicious grip tape. Studded pedals look like the best solution to this, preferably with holes that allow dirt to fall through. The NyloNove pedals look great, but a 16X version won't be ready until this spring, if at all. Has anyone here successfully fitted any of the various studded hex pedals on their 16X?

  8. Maybe the power button solder broke and it's just the power button? Wheels don't just stop working after a minor tumble. Open it and see what you can find.

  12. Little Update after 100km on the Pedals. Overall great upgrade together with the powerpads these add a hughe amount of controll. I can realy throw the weight of the sherman around without any fear of slipping/sliding. Improves carving and thight turning stability by a lot. Switching the orginial Screws/Pins for the MTB Spiked Pins made the Pedals even stickier, allthough the stock pins allready felt great. Important note tho, as with MTB Flat Pedals you realy need shoes with a soft sole. I noticed 5tens realy stick much better than my rugged boots that did fine on my stock pedals befor

  13. Awhile ago, I sold my tesla v2 and bought an mcm5, and that was the best decision regarding EUCs I ever made. While I sadly lost some top speed, I personally gained so much more in my sense of stability because of how differently the wheels are shaped. The tesla always felt like it was pushing my feet off the pedals to the side because of it's boxy shape. I feel the MCM5 is the perfect shape because it allows me to ride looser because the shell stays out of the way. I can't stand the "locked in" feeling; I'll grip the wheel when I need to of course, but generally I ride with a little space bet

  14. Need your help! My 13 yr old nephew had a little tumble with his 2 week old Mten3. The fall was just a little roll.....he just stepped off of it. The wheel was fully padded up with ribbed foam.....so no hard impacts. Anyway right after that, the Mten 3 just won't turn on. It just died. The battery was fully charged or at least 70% battery. I plugged it in for a while just in case it was a dead battery but it just won't turn on. Any ideas what's wrong with it. It is brand new, it's the black edition Mten 3 from Aliexpess. Any help would be appreciated

  21. Hallo, that is my firs post on this forum. Pls excuse my poor english. I use a chance to order this type from ali. I unpacked couple minits ago and there is my concerns: 1) I hoped that this EUC will have 3inch tire. I have just 2.5inch. Not big issue, it can be replaced. 2) I hoped that it will be equpped with new 2.8A charger. It has traditional 1.5A. 3) I hoped that it will not have hollow bore motor. It seems to be, .... wait for it .... . I did not topen it, but there is visible (throw space between plastic cover nad wheel) rounded shaft that is leading from motor.

  22. Love my 18l as well Shane. If the firmware increased the maximum speed I would absolutely get it. I like the firmware I got, I just find myself riding tiltback a lot lately. Or if it fixed my Bluetooth problem I would install it as well.

  23. I have not found that my leash has had any dangerous effects. I've had several falls/slips at low speeds and the leash has saved my EUC from rolling away down the hill at least two of those times. While I do understand your concern I will continue to use the leash to not only preserve my investment but to stop it running away out of control and potentially risk others.

  25. Incredible as it might seem, I only got into this wheel game mid spring '20. I was rockin' a Xiaomi escoot early spring til I got bored with its 35kph topend. Was just about to order somethin' faster with suspension & offroad tires til I saw this funny lookin' monowheel UFO on YT.

  26. Expect it all you want. Hell, even hope for it. But you've been around longer than I have, you MUST know the score by now. Normal rules don't apply with the euc. A TON of burden is placed on us as new adopters. I like to think I got lucky on one new release and burned on another. Everyone told me and warned me, but i still had this wierd thought that eventually an euc company would release a 2-3k$ wheel and pay attention to build and quality. DUrr.... they didnt. I'm an idiot for having hope and a fool for not believgin everyone who said to wait. Still, gambling is fun aint it? I am total

  27. Yes yes I know I too can build my own house, fix my own car, till my own land & grow my own crops...yadi yadi yada. However is it too much to expect something bought new as a completed product to work at least for the 1st few months without getting our hands dirty? Afterall, we paid hard earned money for it. Much as it can be fun for some, most of us didn't buy parts separately to diy it ourselves. It maybe amusing but I'd think no one will accept such a proposition if it was a brand new phone, microwave, fridge, auto...you name it. Sometimes I think we EUC'ers must be gluttons for pu

Hell, Im learning to ride MUCH faster than I am learning to create good content and decent editting. If its new to you too, just wait and see how freaking involved it can become.

  31. @gon2fast tagging you too for this below. I suggest you do a calibration. The way to do this is turn on the wheel. Then press lift button and rotate the wheel to rest on its stand, and release lift button. Then in the app initiate the scv calibration. Sometimes you might have to do this 1 to 3 times before it complete correctly. It is often to need more tries if the wheel has been stored on its side or taken a hard tumble.

  32. quote from an unknown source: "You'd worry less about what people think of you if you knew how seldom they did". I don't do resolutions per se, but nearly identical to @ShanesPlanet above my takeaway from this year that will be applied next year is: If you even thought you might want to do it, start doing it NOW. Cuz nature and the government have figured out that if one or the other doesn't kill you first, they can banish you to your house with nothing to do but enjoy your housemates, home cooking, quarantinis and the internet.

  36. No electric pump has a valve that will prevent air loss when disconnecting. They also don’t get the pressure high enough. You’d need a pump capable of 200 psi, and none of them do.

  37. Nope it wasn't that. The wheel came on transport mode and I disabled it. After my episode where the wheel was a doing the Hall effect sensor beeping, I found it would randomly start doing that about 50% of the time when I tried to turn the wheel on. The solution was to move the wheel a bit and then try to turn it on again. Obviously that's not tenable and a super annoying defect for the wheel to have. I sent it in to ewheels and they changed the motor, which didn't fix it, and then they changed the control board which did the trick. Kind of a weird defect as I haven't heard of anyone else

  40. I want the perfect wheel. But here's what I would easily settle for.. competitve specs and waterproofing. The biggest concern I have is : quality parts, beefed up electronics (way over spec!) and BUILD QUALITY!! You would gain popularity SO FAST, if you invest in quality fasteners, flexible panels that dont break too easily, brass inserts for screws to tap into, waterproofing, and any decent quality control. I have YET to open a wheel that doesnt seem half assed as far as QC. DO NOT let your brains and time and efforts be undermined at the assembly line, or when parts shopping wholesale. Wh

  41. It seems to me that the pressure lost is just what is contained in the hose from the dial to the connector. When I pump up my shock I pump it to about 110 PSI release the lever and press the bleed button until the dial goes to zero. If I flip the lever back it will read 100 PSI which is what I want my shock to be set to. It is very consistent and I can do it every time. I believe every pump is going to have this problem, it normally doesn't show up as much because what you are pumping up holds much more air. The percentage of the air in the hose is about 10% of the total volume so

  42. The 18XL's is thin and comfortable but it's real top speed is under 30mph so that's out. The V11 is also thin and can be set to have a top speed of 35mph but that's only if the battery is > 80% so that's out. Any of the MSX style wheels will have the speed but I think they're all boxy and the pedals are renowned for locking you in. The Sherman has the speed and the pedals look fairly comfortable but the wheel itself is very boxy - it is a box with a handle on each end. That leaves the Nikola+

  43. If you want the thin wheel feel, but similar torque to, and higher top speed than, the mcm5, maybe the KingSong 18XL is the way to go for you... just be sure it's not region locked to china . Its battery life (before the 30% slowdown) will be fine if you're already happy with the MCM5. It's got big pedals, and 2.5inch tires so you still get the manoeuvrability.

  44. Bit late to the discussion but in the UK I just tried a new scooter that was just released, and I am shocked. The brand is called shock wheelz - I ordered on amazon but they have a website I was just checking out. I have had a Ninebot and Xiaomi and they both really don't compare! Especially when the Shock Wheelz model is so much more affordable. Honestly, I have the PRO-MAX and I have never felt so safe compared to the other scooters I have used, going over bumps etc. seemed like air especially at speed I don't think I could go back now, keep recommending them to my friends because
