  1. You don't know my luck good sir.. my batch 4 is likely going to be the one that cuts off, falls, smokes, burst in to flames right in front of the city mayor who will then outlaw PEVs because they are a "danger" plaster my face on the front page of the news paper so the whole city hates me. The paper circulation will hit national and expose my ugly face to the USA as the man that got PEVS outlawed in the US by felony punishment. I'll be hunted down by the mob of PEV riders turned felons only to be found in Guadalajara Mexico 🇲🇽 and tried and judged to death in the court of public opinion..

  4. Thanks everyone, I got the V10F and am quite happy. I was actually surprised by how easy it was to get going, given how little comparable experience I had. I feel skiing and skating helped a bit, especially for turning. I am still rather insecure in mounting and unmounting but I have been riding for almost 200km already in the past few days as I could not stop

  7. Cool man. Thank you fellas. 😊 I was feeling pretty bummed. I'll end up with another soon enough but I wanted thr s18 to be good enough especially for 2k!

  8. I'm a little over 210- 215lbs geared and s18 is fine, all in the air pressures and the rebound rate on shock like Shane mentions above. Use the wheel for what it is good at and take the trails and curbs/ speed bumps, jumps and you'll love it. Decide you want a higher speed/ long range wheel, get a second wheel for that later. Embrace the excitement and challenges of setting it up properly and you'll feel rewarded once you dial it in, trust me

  9. Meh, theres heavier riders loving the s18. Adjust shock pressure, adjust tire pressure.. enjoy the magic. We all have opinions. I'd say to just ride it and form your own. As a new rider, I highly doubt you'll be pushing the wheel too hard and I KNOW youll enjoy the glide. If in the unlikely event that it doesnt fit your needs, the market is strong, no worries. Have you ridden an euc? Big and small, they all have their place. At 220lbs you just gotta not act stupid on ANY of them. The s18 is REAL equipment, especially spec wise to the OW. Just comb thru it and make sure its put together properl

  10. LOL... Actually, the easier option is to put a Bodyguard on now. While the wheel is already scratched, the Bodyguard will cover up all that pain and make everything look like new again - and in colour even.

  11. So I was doing my casual cruise around my block, i hear a car door open behind me. Then the barking starts and I hear the owner yelling "Tootsie, come back!". In my head I'm like crap, stay calm and speed up. So I did that and then I caught a glimpse of the dog, it was a freaking chihuahua. 🤣 Mind you I only been riding for a month, and was on the ACM learning. Glad it wasn't a big dog, I don't think acm will outrun a big dog. I still have my brand new RS HS sitting in storage for when I feel more confident riding. No doubt same adrenaline rush from when I get chased on my esk8, not

  13. I had to come to terms with the fact that there are NUMEROUS reports of people enjoying their wheels. People I trust the opinion of, even. I also am trying to remember, its terrible form to shit all over something a person has just purchased. I'm trying to become a better human a little. The specs show that the s18 is a capable wheel. I do enjoy kingsongs power delivery. I've had to try and re-evaluate my bias and even accept the possibility that the s18 can be a damn fine wheel. It is entirely possible that I just happened to get the worst one they ever built. Darn near ANY wheel is better th

  16. Thanks for the comments guys, I love this machine so much. Good idea to get one of those buffers, I do use T-Cut by hand to get rid of the dirt but the the buffer would work better and take out most scratches . I did think of getting new side panels one day as they are cheap and easy to fit but it would be scratched up again in no time. Fortunately I don't mind the scratches, part of her character. In the 3 months I have had her I probably do 10 miles a day average for say 1.5-2 hrs. 50% Road (Streets, Gravel, pot holes), 50% off road (Trails/Fields/Forests/Beach). So lucky I have all these

  18. I'm fairly new to euc's and currently ride a Ninebot E+. I have an antique airplane and would like to carry a wheel for transportation to from airports. My airplane's baggage capacity is 50lbs and I need to also haul a few other items so max wheel weight would be 40 pounds. Anyone have suggestions?

  19. You need to view this as a game. Instead of answering blabla mph and xxxx$ you turn it around to a question into the direction you want to talk about. Once you master that then you will see this skill you just picked up can be very very useful and applied in many ways.

  20. By far the two questions I get asked the most are: How fast can it go? How much does it cost? Which seem like such bizarre places to start to me. I would expect more questions about "how does it work?", "how difficult is it to learn?", "how practical is it for <x usage case>?", "how does it compare to <y other micro-vehicle>?", etc.--but nope, all Joe-public can muster to conceive of at this stage of societal degeneration is 'how fast'/'how much money'.

  21. Hey Buddy, so glad you’re enjoying your S18. I should have added a to my post. Sorry. We joke around here at times. A buffer will not work on plastic to remove your battle scars. It will only melt the plastic. Jason at Ewheels has S18 replacement side panels and molded pads. Or purchase a Bodyguard from them. Good luck.

  22. No. The way I understand things, a self balanced vehicle is very sensitive to the synchronization of the controller and the motor, which is why the controller must be fine tuned for the specific motor. This could be for example about the shape and the exact width of the duty cycles. Because of this, EUCs have a fail check system in place. If the hall sensors do not give back data that the controller considers reasonable, the controller will cease all power output to the motor. So the hall sensors should be in the expected order and in the exact position in relation to the motor coils.

  23. So, the Veteran Sherman is rated for 150kg and there's a few of those kicking around. This chart has the limits for most if not all wheels, lots of good info on this site anyway too. https://eucguide.com/euc-comparison-tool/

  24. Yup, youll enjoy it. My crystal ball is telling me that you'll have others within two years. Not as replacements, merely additions. Wait... its also telling me.... you'd be wondering the same thing with same end result if you had purchased a 16X instead. You have to admit, the s18 LOOKS sexy as hell. Those OneWheelers will be drooling, bring extra water...

  27. One shared vegetarian pizza and now you're wasting away I'll like any post you make just for letting me chase your husband on your own Mten3! (For the record I never caught up. He was riding a V11 so I never had a chance... Till they put me on the RS if course. I've never seen so many beautiful bodyguards in my life!)

  28. For durability and reliability, 18XL. For comfort, V11. For safety, a (non-GW) wheel whose issues are known. So it’s really hard to say which would be the best option for you. The S18 weighs 25kg, V11 is 27kg. The difference is way too small to affect the ride. The wider top part of the S18 affects the maneuverability much more, for me personally at least. The V11 gets slimmer up top, which works very well at least for my riding posture. The V11 now comes with bearing shields and better quality Japanese bearings. The bearing issues should finally be a thing of the past.

  29. Wheel: I agree with most of the others V10F, 16X or 18XL but I think the V11 is far too fragile to learn on and I think the high pedal height just makes things more difficult. If you bought the V8F then you'll soon be wanting another wheel. Safety gear: I'd just go with a bicycle helmet, wrist guards and shoes that cover your ankles (you'd be surprised how big a gouge the metal pedals on a spinning EUC can make).

  30. Some updates.. I've forked the Chinese version of the Leaperkim Updater app and created an English Only one.. With proper icon and more. LeaperKim_v1.0_eng_mod_v2.3_by_SomniusX.apk V1 app V2.3 English fork is here - New app icon - New app identifier, no more problems having the original one and the English fork. - Still Chinese servers are being used for firmware binary and changelog data.

  31. The V8F is too weak for you. The V10(F) is certainly nice. But if you already now consider the possibility of ugrading later, maybe it's best to start with a V11 or a similar wheel right away.

  32. For your size, V10F or 16X. The initial learning curve is steep but short. Once you get to riding, youll appreciate a larger wheel. Larger doesnt mean you have to go faster. It simply means you have more headroom and/or range. Its better to have more than less, until you climb into HUGE and heavy of course. Do yourself a favor and go with the larger inmotion or even an 18XL. Larger tires roll smoother and if you arent off roading, it really the way to go. If you were learning to ride a bicycle for the first time, would you get the smallest one that could do the job, or the larger one that will

  33. Just today @Jason McNeil (eWheels) has contacted one of it's customers (Steve Krytus) and sent him through Veteran's New OTA update tool, in order for him to update the firmware on his wheel using his phone via the Android update tool. This tool has allowed him to update his Sherman to the latest 1.0.58. version of the firmware, according to a Facebook post he made today, including this copy of the email. It would be good to know how the rest of us could get a copy of the update tool download from Veteran, as I believe it is currently Only available from eWheels to send out t

  34. I think this is a very fair and sound warning to any using a knobby tire with V11 or V12 that this is not kickstand compatible. You can burn a drive board if the stand get trapped between the knobbs while it is turned on. I do think Inmotion issued a warning about this. I know I discussed it with Liam when he was working for Inmotion.

  36. If your leading leg is the right, there's an opposite deformation when mounting. It is a fact that it rubs when I mount with the left leg... Seems stupid anyways, even if it was true. Should have been equal and have a bit more space.

  37. Seems a lot of us have just started our S18 adventures. I got mine last week from a retailer with excellent customer service so I didn't even have to pump the tyre. Just put some air in the suspension, hopped on and tried to hit the 10km mark before the rain set in. Felt pretty wobbly at first but now at 25km I'm starting to feel pretty confident. Especially with the Roll.nz bodyguard on so I'm not scared of over balancing when I lean the wrong way on a dismount. Got to get used to dismounting on my weak foot!

  39. As a proud owner of a 1st batch S18, I second what @mrelwood is saying. It is a bit of buyer-beware with the S18 (unfortunately). I had to do a complete stripdown and overhaul of my wheel to get it to work. But it was well worth it and it is a fabulous wheel. Zero issues so far after the rebuild, range is also great for my use... most I have done was 65km and still no tiltback. A friend of mine bought one this spring, and it worked great out of the box. Another forum member just got his S18, and it was described as "stiff" in the suspension --> will need some adjustments in order to wo

  41. Updated my Sherman today from 1.0.56. to 1.0.58. by following the simple instructions without issue, went really smoothly and was very quick! Unfortunately our cold wet weather currently prevents me from taking the Sherman out to test the, reported by some on Telegram, decrease in pedal dip and increased performance. I will at least be able to correct the wheels voltage value to correspond to the real battery voltage (100.8v) when I get time at the weekend, so looking forward to tweaking that in the settings!

  42. Jalan asennon löytämisestä vielä. Jälkimmäisen jalan osuminen pedaalilla juuri oikeaan kohtaan on mullakin lottovoiton kaltainen sattuma vielä 30000km jälkeenkin, tärkeämpää kuin treenata sitä on opetella siirtämään jalkaa ajaessa: Painoa enemmän toiselle jalalle, ja sitten vain keinutat jälkimmäistä jalkaa puolelta toiselle ja möngerrät oikeaan kohtaan.

  44. This right here shows the attitude behind these people. Mickey has the same attitude. Insulting fellow riders who just point out that illegal riding should not be promoted. This kind of language also encourages followers of these influencers to think that to be cool and tough you cannot intervene in bad behaviour. I think racing EUCs is great and it's fantastic that Ewheels and EUCO are supporting it. But I hope sponsoring would follow one very basic rule. Races are to be had in closed areas. Same rule goes for every other sport. What people here are reacting to is racing among general p

  45. It does take skill to ride in NY, I will not take that away from any NY Rider. It takes total disregard for human life to barrel into crossing pedestrians going 40MPH when the rider could have simply stopped. The act is showcased at the beginning of the vid, like it is a highlight reel or something.
