  1. You only need two ingredients: good adrenaline and two beautiful young ladies close by. Short story. I'm riding for the 1st time after a week in the toilet, hospital and bed due to a intestinal bug. My legs are weak due to dehydration and the muscle fatigue, after riding about 15kms, and I'm going down the front road of the (still closed) Tasis International School. Down the road I see two beautiful young ladies. But there's a problem: they're walking three huge dos. I love dogs and have always one in the family. But dogs don't generally love EUC riders. So I signal to the ladies, w

  2. Begode Nikola Plus weights 27 Kg. And that's basically just an empty shell with batteries. The 2kg more V12 should have is not that much difference. A bit more material here and there, a beefy light with its own heatsink, batteries encased in their own watertight boxes, and a few similar changes and you get the 2 kg.

  3. I just want to add that some people don't want to own cars/motorcycles for a number of reasons that i'm not going to get into but they mostly boil down to a mix of lifestyle choices and economy. I don't use eucs as toys but as my primary mode of transportation, and have even used them for work in the past. As a young guy with no kids to drive around this type of vehicle is perfect for many reasons. I can typically carry anything i buy without the need of a car and again i don't have a need to transport other people. Also i don't typically travel for longer than euc battery capacit

  4. @Tasku, @ShanesPlanet, @Tawpie, @Rich Sam, @UniMeand @mrelwood...I finally found the perfect insoles for my feet. I bought 7 sets from different suppliers all over the world, some were expensive orthopedic insoles....and I finally hit the jackpot. Tried them yesterday, rode 25kms and no pain!!!. It's like having clouds under my feet... I got them at Joom along with another trashy pair. These are the perfect insoles for me with my basket sneakers: Silicon Gel Insoles Foot Care for Plantar Fasciitis Heel Spur Running Insoles Arch Orthopedic Insole-buy at a low prices on Joom e-com

  5. LOL aww shucks, thanks Yeah, I kinda stopped doing the rounds of YouTube demo wheel reviews partly cuz I felt the soul-sucking impartiality life coming out of me. No matter how much you like the vendor and they say they give you license to be impartial, you still kind of feel compelled to say good things, out of gratitude, combined with the desire to be fed more demo wheels. Yeah, I'm not doing that any more, if ever I get back to vids, I'd rather just buy the wheel outright for review, then sell it if I don't like (a big reason the last 16X vid on my channel was more other guys tal

  6. V12 is 24s4p config which is 96 cell. One cell is 70g (21700 cell). The raw battery is 6.72 kg+ soldering wires bms etc.... 6.72 kg battery in a 29 kg weel. If battery tech improves and it will be only half the weight thats 3kg only. The real weight of the euc comes from the motor.

  7. Damn physics getting in the way again...;-) It's definitely the combination of bigger, more powerful motors and bigger batteries which are by far the two heaviest components responsible--with no real solution in sight. (Unless/until one of those battery breakthroughs that are perpetually 3-5 years away...) Everyone parroted the "suspension adds so much extra weight" farce and the reality was that the difference in weight between the very similar V11 and 2200W KS-18XL is only ~2kg--utterly negligible. It's all motors and batteries that really matter.

  8. LOL my fav topic rehashed once again (rather my fav topic to debunk misconceptions about once again, thanks @fbhb ) It's always easiest to think in exaggerations to understand (numbers are arbitrary): Hard Mode: To accelerate from 0 to 10mph in 1s requires pushing on an immovable brick wall with 100 lbs of force. Soft Mode: To accelerate from 0 to 10mph in 1s requires spinning a frictionless, weightless fan an eighth revolution. ... but things gets amplified the closer to max speed you reach (ie. the wheel requires more input): Hard Mode: To accelerate fr

  9. Finally, first ride with the fw 1.2.22! Are my winter legs fooling me or is the V11 Commuter Mode at 100 tighter with the new fw than it was on the fw 1.2.1?? It used to be way too soft for me, but now even 80 feels very very good! I might have to toss the Off-Road mode, at least for a while. Other than that I’m not sure if I felt any differences, though I only rode for 7km or so. The ride is very smooth, just like it has always been. Pedal dip behavior might be slightly different in medium turns though, but it really is a long time since I’ve last ridden properly. Nearly three mont

  12. That is awesome! Funny how the brain can process all those things in a split second. Bravo! Reminds me of the time I experienced a wobble, hop off only to lose my balance and had no choice but to do a side roll. I stood up coming out of the roll and started running after my wheel as it managed to stay upright and started to wonder away. I did end up catching up to it.

  13. Hmmm interesting to read how some have a big nay-hat down over their eyes while others think the V12 will be a perfect wheel. So devided about such a "simple" product. Also abother interesting thing is how far some twist tveir news flow and are ready to decided on a roumer that is yet not confirmed by other resellers. And that Inmotion have yet to release a public confirmation on the launching V12 specification. Yes I am aware some testers has a V12 to provide feedback to Inmotion and they are still under some sort of NDA. I can see why the V12 is appealing to some riders.

  14. And 100V was the hot and new thing! 1845Wh 100V Monster cost as much as the 2400Wh 84V one. The V11 was/is very reasonably priced. I hope the best that means the V12 will be, too.

  16. The long awaited firmware upgrade for the V11 is now available! First I made sure I had the latest Inmotion app (7.8.1) for my iPhone. As I connected to the V11, the app immediately suggested the firmware upgrade. The upgrade got interrupted several times (despite the phone laying on top of the V11, unused and unlocked), but when I saw the V11 battery animation stop, I was always able to resume the upgrade immediately. All in all with the interruptions the upgrade took about 25 minutes from start to finish. Since the app didn't seem to re-read the installed firmware version, I

  17. According to https://www.fluxpower.com/blog/what-is-the-energy-density-of-a-lithium-ion-battery Even if we assume the top-level of 260 Wh/kg which almost certainly is for the most expensive batteries, a 1750 Wh battery would weigh 6.7 kg which is already over 23% of the weight.

  18. Yeah. When I was doing a Spring disassembly and cleaning of my V10 and I wanted to check if any water got to the battery compartment, I knew what to expect. But I have been surprised anyway at how light it is when I take out the motor and battery.

  19. My tubed Mten3 was a headache for me as well. It went flat after 50km. I had trouble finding a tube for the wheel so went straight to a tubeless conversion. I bought a Segway miniPRO /Segway miniLITE Tire Valve Stem which snapped in after a soak in some hot soapy water.

  21. Depends on how the wiring is done inside the charge connectors to the batteries. It's the same. Charge current threshold to stop charging mentioned in the ncr18650ga manufacturer datasheet is 67mA. So for the sherman at 10*67mA=0.67A. For the MSP with ?24s4p lg21700m50t? 50mA are specified so 4*50mA=0.2A. It has no CV stage? That's more a stupid charger than a smart charger;) If one takes the end charge current threahold one will notice that a full balancing charge does not take too much longer.

  24. Haha. Yep, for me the panic stop (aka sh1tting position) was a long learning curve—always got wobbly so I’ve said that a lot. After 1.2 million meters I literally just figured out I need to deliberately press with my left heel to solve the braking wobble. I still do 2-3 panic stops as part of the pre-ride warm up... quick acceleration, fast stop, tight left circle, zoom, stop, tight right circle.

  25. Ive pushed my baby mten to 'cutout' or overload beep and shut off. Typically when Im in soft dirt, uphill and acting like a jackass. It groans and warns me. Its also simp[ly obvious Im abusing it and I am more than ready when the inevitable happens. So to answer your question... YES, I have. AS for 'random cutoffs', those are merely hardware failure. IM guessnig the odds of that are just like the odds of ANY electrical component failing. Of course it could just as easily be an led go out as it could be a failure that couses cutout.

  26. Only times i ever had a cut off was when pushing past the 80% beeps like an idiot. I no longer do but ride as aggressively as my wheel will allow while staying under the 80% beeps and have not cut off since. Also i scale down how aggressive i accelerate/brake according to battery percentage.

  27. I just reviewed a list of things not commonly covered by home owners insurance and it is alarming. It is more to the tune of liability insurance at best. My wife pays for that so I am not going to worry as she is far smarter than I and most likely has it covered. When I broke my arm in 2019 my boss asked me if I was over it now that I wrecked myself... Hard NO.

  28. Ohh and I do think that should @houseofjobget a chance to review a V12 that could be entertaining. What he would say about it, I have no idea. But despite him and I like products for different reasons, I always found the reviews he did to bring something new and interesting. I shall not mention names but a few other youtubers are in the game to earn money. It shows in their stuff. But they are just like a commercial. I can view this anywhere, but they do not make me decided if I want a product. And commercial have very little interest to me.

  29. Yes its the same and you can use both ports. 10A total, 5A per port on older Shermans. 8A per port (still 10A total!) on newer double pinned versions. You can check for continuity on pin 1-2 and 4-5 to see if the port is double pinned. Marty did a video covering it charging the first version if you want a second source.

  30. Agree. It's weird that EUC buyers seem to accept high prices for batteries when the rest of the market pays way less. Here's a recent report on Techspot MIT study shows plunge in lithium-ion battery cost over the last 10 years showing a current price of around $100 per KWh. Those features were brand new then (3" tyre, manoeuvrable and 37mph) but that same wheel is available for way less now (I had one on order for $1800). And that's the price that the V12 will have to compete with.

  32. No. These "cut outs" are nothing cutting off - its an overlean. Something intrinsic to bldc motors and their max torque over speed limit. https://forum.electricunicycle.org/topic/7855-anatomy-of-an-overlean/?do=findComment&comment=107721 There is absolutely nothing random - it has a very deterministic cause! Especially with the new powerfull wheels it gets harder too reach these limit. Old, aged battery packs especially with degraded cells make overleans much more likely again. And much easier with empty battery packs and easier with "low paralleled cell count" packs.

  33. Yeah and the size is not adjustable. After yet more research I think I've settled on IXS Trigger FF because it seems to be one of the more comfortable ones, is very light and is quite low key looking (as compared to this Oneal I almost bought which I don't think I'm cool enough to pull off :D)

  38. Various scenarios is a very wide range. If I disregard small tumbles when I was starting, or when I’m challenging myself at gnarly off-road challenges, I have fallen only twice. The first one would’ve been mitigated by a larger wheel (which I ordered the next day), the second would’ve been prevented by not jumping up and down like a crazy person to feel the suspension... I have ridden about 30 000 km in four years. I think that’s a darn good track record. One local guy is a crash magnet though. He doesn’t ride fast or crazy like I sometimes do, but he might not always be very concentrated

  42. EUCWorld's author, Seba, is a V11 owner and generally very quick to update in response to InMotion firmware updates--often same day or within a couple days. (Not that we should expect this of him, my point is simply that this is likely a very short-lived problem.)

  43. ditto. Mine is named "Nellie". The learning process reminded me of breaking a horse (which I've watched, but never actually done—my bravery has always had limits). The thing did NOT want to be ridden, went where it wanted to go, threw me off several times, and required a lot of "whoa Nellie" coaxing to slow down. Now it's a gentle beast that loves both street and trail, needs only gentle nudging to tell it where we're heading, and reliably gets us there. BTW, some of my YT viewing implied that off road was a way to quickly ramp up your skill level and I can concur. I spent half the winter

  44. Congrats on the 16X. I'm a little jealous. I like the look of that wheel. I'm looking forward to the point when I can ride the EUC and not think about controlling the EUC so much and have it just feel pretty natural. That said I am pretty happy to be riding it around feel [mostly] safe without having damaged the wheel or myself in the learning process so far! I have one more fence project I need to tackle this spring, but I am taking a week or two break before I head back to Home Depot start that one!

  45. Just in case someone will have similar problem - if your wheel is locked and you don't know password, but you know serial number, enter serial number when EUC World asks for password. You can then clear password from wheel settings by entering serial number again. This is why it's best to remove serial number stickers from pedals and keep it in a safe place for reference. More, there is also another sticker on the mainboard, so it's best to remove it as well.

  48. I am interested in the results of your survey. Nice job on capturing what people want/like. I wish I had done this earlier. To summarize the results I see so far: There is the most interest in seeing many different angles in a video. In other words, people like seeing views of the rider, the view they see, the wheel, etc. I think 360 cameras are the best at variety of views. However, a 4k standard view is higher resolution and allows for slow motion effects etc. The time required to reframe and then edit the 360 footage is the biggest time suck. But editing slow motion of other high qual

  49. If you really are into numbers as pure facts, you should state the tire pressure and rider weight as well. Things do get hairy like that very soon. The announced range figures are a much bigger mess though. Measuring distance is just as fact based as speed, the range of an EUC just has more variables that affect the outcome. Which is why any announced range number is much more off, and much more harmful for spreading actual information than a constant 8% speed deflation. I’m not saying that the manufacturers are in it to be precise though. As you say, the difference is too big for
