  1. Hi, William from eWheels here. We don't remove any negative reviews. This 16S was not purchased directly from us, and therefore as part of the review program's terms - are not published (as you can see - it's marked "unverified" in the original image). We have zero control over this. This is to ensure a company isn't trolled with negative reviews of products not bought from them. We were then accused of withholding negative reviews (we don't - we have some, as all companies do), and then abused with words I will not type on the forum. We then offered to refund the customer for his Sherma

  2. I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone (except maybe @NastyFartPants ) who offered their footage for us to use during the Lifestyle Expo that we attended for the weekend just gone. You have some awesome footage that definitely helped grab the attention of those wandering past. We were fortunate to be able to secure a large space - 9m × 9m (about 10yd square) - which meant that we were able to demonstrate and even get (brave) volunteers up on wheels to try them out. Having said that, spending 4-5 hours a day for 3 days riding in such a small space is very challenging and while w

  3. You know what else is wrong? - You calling anyone a DICK at this forum. Read the forum rules again. - You making a review at a vendor’s site who you didn’t but the wheel from. As you showed, this was very politely explained to you by Ewheels in an email, yet you cling onto your own rules for where you should leave a review. - You publishing a bad product review because you chose the wrong product, and/or because you struggled with learning to ride. I suggest you cool down a few degrees before posting anything here. Us moderators have already given you a warning for i

  4. But you aren’t their customer when it comes to this specific 16S. Their website is a business suite of a shop. To me it’s obvious that it’s not intended to be an open forum for reviews from anybody. Nothing suggests that she wasn’t satisfied with the quality or performance of the product. She simply learned that riding is hard and requires more commitment than she had to spare. She’s probably smart enough to realize that the product was not at fault. A two star review does sound like a moderately bad experience. The 16S was my second EUC. I was stunned and mesmer

  5. According to data sent from the wheel to the app, at 48 % of battery level wheel will throttle speed to ~63 km/h. Wheel is set to "fancier" mode, so speed limit is fixed at 70 km/h. After turning "fancier" mode off, at 48 % wheel reports speed limit at 60 km/h which is a max for this wheel in "normal" mode. Of course I assume that during a ride speed throttling will me more aggressive; I'm going to discharge this wheel today and check how it throttles the speed as the battery gets more and more empty.

  6. Mod notice: We consider the V12 released now. To separate speculation, wishes, and pre-release information, as well as all the semi-related tangents that the V12 thread produced, it has been renamed to Inmotion V12 (pre-release) and locked. This is the new V12 thread. Feel free to make your own topic(s) about all things V12 as well! - I got my v12 on Sunday. I preordered ages ago from eevee’s in Vancouver. They only got 5 from the first batch I think though. They got thru customs quick. so far so good. Nice and peppy. I’m just waiting for the weekend to come faster now. Onl

  7. Yes without a doubt, 100 percent you have the bad attitude there dOn. Change my mind by posting the correspondence between you an Ewheels and demonstrate how you have been so wronged to say.... I am perfectly capable of reading and comprehending. I read the entire thread and see you are throwing a hissy fit because a private company did not allow you to post about a product that you did not buy from them. Their policy seems reasonable to me. It is their website and they can post whatever they want on it. So post your "review" on this forum or any other internet r

  8. The problem with leaving a negative a review like this on ewheels site. Is that you didnt purchase the wheel there.. If you did purchase it there and spoke to them first about what you were looking for, you probably would have been given advice against that wheel. The argument can be made that you would have nothing negative to say about the wheel then. While i don't agree with removing negative reviews.. I do agree with why this one isn't published. I see nothing wrong with ewheels only wanting verified purchasers reviewing the wheels they bought from their site. They have no cont

  9. Okey time for a new update. A few things has happened since I wrote last on this review. I bought a 2nd V11 (build April 2021), to ensure I always had a V11 up and running. But because of my butterfingers and clumsy mind I managed to either fry a driver board (lower mounted board) or a motor. I am still not sure which or even if main board (top mounted board) is damaged too. So yesterday I had a fair bit of part arrining. 2x set of drive board, main board. 1 new motor (this is properly the most interesting part) and new BT module for my 1st batch V11 and a few other minor things.

  10. We got access to a kart circuit for an event. We were missing an RS so we couldn't beat the kart lap record (4 seconds behind with the s18) but it was loads of fun. Looks deceptively slow on footage but it was a thrill. Challenging too, because the bends are at an angle so even high pedals can scrape against the surface while turning.

  11. But everyone has to idly sit by and let you throw a tantrum because a group of people that are highly respected by this community (and for good reason) won’t publish your unfair review. E-wheels has a very long and strong track record for great service, transparency and honesty. You wanted us to take your side over a nothing issue. You haven’t damaged their reputation in the slightest and the more you post the more it’s actually going up in my esteem. To endure your treatment of them earns them a medal. I’d say you sound like a nightmare customer, but you aren’t even their custome

  13. Hi, My son is visiting with his mten3. I go out once or twice a day, and at the age of 68 am trying to learn to ride it. After 2-3 weeks I can slalom between pop cans but am still pretty wobbly. My 6 year old grandson came to visit and couldn't quit trying to ride it for maybe three days. Today they came back for another visit and he's riding it everywhere: 4 laps around the 1 mile park behind our house, turns around in the width of a sidewalk, and slaloms between trees on a grassy hillside. Both my son who owns the mten3 and I are just shaking our heads. Ah, to be young. I have ord

  15. While we are being honest, so have I. This is the bit I disagree on, and why I stopped riding like a jerk after a relatively short space of time. 'Public Perception' is all I need to say really. It matters not that we as riders aren't hitting people or cars. The issue is riding like a twat and what the public think of that. This is far less important if we were legal, but we're not. We can argue the toss that theres plenty of cars driving idiots too, but lets be honest, the vast majority dont blow red lights, scream through zebra crossings, cross multiple lanes in one go etc

  16. Day 3 practice.. total of 10 hours of actual practice.. rode 3 times around the block. 9mph top speed. I need to gain better control, also mounting still takes a few tries but I've only practiced kick starting. So far so good. I'm on it, I'm riding it, I'm controlling it for the most part. From hour 1.. there's been leaps and bounds of progress I think.

  18. You're on it. You just posted your review. It appears you did little research before making your purchase of a used EUC. Blaming the modest specs and performance of the product you selected instead of acknowledging your own lack of research before making a purchase seems like you are taking zero responsibility for buying a product that is not meeting your specific needs. I think you should be able to leave a review good or bad on Ewheels site when you have purchased a product from them. Your general modus operandi seems to be unnecessarily derogatory remarks. So yeah, really not very coo

  21. Dear Sumako, this is a very bold statement . Your message looks to me like "mind your own business! This does not concern you!", as I understand it. It us up to me to decide what impacts me and my life and what does not. I am concerned about what happened in the video. It is basic human empathy -- I feel bad and scared for the frightened pedestrians. This has nothing to do with where I or they live and whether legal consequences might be expected. Still, speaking of legal consequences - surely, you do not claim to understand how legislation works in all the other countries better th

  22. It could be that riding is such a great killer of bad moods because it forces you to concentrate on riding and riding only. Whatever you had troubling your mind will woosh off right away. Going back to the issues after the ride, you can see things with a much wider perspective and without strong moods. Many things might solve themselves just like that.

  24. Wow ! I really like this wheel. That’s probably the best farm/ trail wheel for the money IMHO. I cruised around my friends farm through various terrains including a steep rocky road up the ridge. Then I took it out to my favorite mtb trails and did 4 1/2 miles. It’s light, nimble, torquey and has a low c.o.g. Being lower to the ground than the s18 makes it much less scary, and it's easier to ride slow. The only things I didn’t like are the fan being kinda loud. I got a fair number of pedal clips on rocks from width I think. And it’s seems quirky about getting back to balancing

  27. Begode didn't start isolating the battery from the charge port until recently, and not on all wheel models. So what's happening is your battery is getting connected to the output capacitors inside your charger, and they're discharged and want to charge so they do so directly from the battery. As @ShanesPlanet pointed out, you can avoid the sparking (some) by powering the charger first, then connecting to the wheel. Doing this ensures that the charger's output caps are at voltage so there's not much current wanting to flow when the charge connector is connected. Be very careful with metal

  29. I can sort of see both sides, but I must say that I think Ewheels is in the right here. The 16s wasn't bought from them, not to mention the complaints were kind of unfounded; you can't really ask a 16s to be an 18xl, but I can sort of understand that it could be mistaken for censorship. As for there not being many bad reviews on the site, I think that has to with the level of customer satisfaction rather than the censorship of reviews (I looked and not all reviews are 5 stars). Ewheels has been incredibly responsive and helpful to me, they've helped me with all the problems I ran into over the

  31. As has been pointed out to you already, is this is your bias. IMHO, the 16s is a decent learning and all around starter wheel. And as Carl pointed out, this IS the place. And, hindsight is always 20/20. Have fun with whatever wheel you end up with.

  32. No such place exists or can. We all speak from our own perspectives and bias. If you want reviews that people arent scared to mention displeasure, you need look to the unpolished and smaller youtube channels. Even those are biased, but at least they arent on payroll. Bad reviews tend to get negative reaction from audiences. You want to perform youtube suicide and keep subscriber count low, post a negative review about something. People can't stand hearing bad things about something they may own. Once a dollar is spent, the bias begins... Iposted displeasure about MY s18. My intellect, gea

Im on the side of a twitchy wheel is horrid to LEARN on, but it seems I'm also in the minority here. We should all just have a beer and get over it. I think e-wheels is just trying VERY hard to stay atop the sales game and perhaps they didnt quite read into your review as I have. I doubt anyone meant any harm, and I am a little surprised it was taken so personally. Maybe it has just been a bad week out there. No excuse, but hell, things happ

  34. To be honest, I also understand why a shop doesn't like it that you leave a bad review of something you didn't buy with them. They can not 'react', they don't have any responsibility about your experience, they cannot check with you, ... It can SEEM for people that if you leave a bad review about a EUC on a shop, that the shop advised you the wrong one, or a bad one, or ... And if that all happened, when you bought it at that shop, you have a right to complain. Now... Well.

  35. 16S is a perfectly fine wheel, it was my main wheel for a few months, I've taught lots of people on them. It absolutely isn't a terrible, twitchy, unstable etc wheel. Its plenty fast enough for casual city cruising. I can see why a vendor wouldn't publish a review that included such egregious misrepresentations of an item from their product line.

  36. The 18xl will give you more headroom. Both are great, but at your weight, I'd err on the side of bigger. The carry weight between the two isnt much. The 18L is more refined in how its battery box is and cable routing. However, if you dont smash the hell out of it, its somewhat moot. At 130lbs in the mountains, I was able to get an 18L to start thorttling me around 25miles. I'd go bigger, unless you can find a smokin' hot deal on the 18L. Either would more than likely carry you, as the they are mostly the same. 50% more battery doesnt hurt tho.

Let's see if they improved the bearing fit this time around... but it sounds like the huge-diameter boutique (expensive) thin-shell bearings from the RS/EX.N/MonPro are being phased out.

  40. When I first got the notion to purchase an EUC I found this forum and asked a lot of questions not only about what to buy, but who to buy it from. From what I could tell there were very few options in terms of resellers here in North America. The general consensus at the time was that Ewheels and EUCO were at the top of many peoples list. The first thing I did, since neither company listed a phone number was to request their phone number. Both companies quickly provided a number to reach them. I occasionally placed a call or asked a question in an email. At first both companies had a sim
