  1. When I calibrated my KS I used a pallet, with a gap large enough to fit my tyre between, and plugged in the charger to keep the wheel from spinning. If this works for Inmotion, I don't know, but it could be worth a try

    There is always Finn, there is a few cheap wheels there that you could buy, learn on (and don't have to worry about scratching), before you get the XL (if thats the one you'll end up with).

    I most definitely enjoyed that! Would like to ride that route myself! How long was it?

    Daredevil's first wheel...

    Regarding e-wheels, I've bought my wheels from them. While I personally haven't had any issues, rumor has it that they're not very good with claims etc. Though if you live fairly close to Drammen, they have a shop there, so it would be easier to get in touch with them. You could also go there to test wheels. If communing is the main use I'd go with a commuting wheel, e.g. 18XL. It can deal with offroad fairly well though. The MSX is more of an offroad wheel than the XL, but is good for commuting as well. The XL and the MSX are very similar, and both will let you do what you want. I don't think you should wait for the 16X, as that will probably be July/late-July, at best, before you would be able to get it here in Norway. And then the summer is pretty much over (depending on where you live).
  7. LOCATION: SW Norway DATE: April 19th TIME: 6 to 7 pm (or so) WEATHER: Very nice, 16-18°C, 10-12 kn winds, sunny DISTANCE TRAVELED: 28km WHICH WHEEL OR MAIN WHEEL USED: Tesla (first ride after getting the XL) WHO WAS WITH ME: Sia, and the weather TOTAL DISTANCE ON THIS WHEEL: Almost 1900km BEST FEATURE OF THE RIDE: The joy of riding after being away for 5 days. And finding a new route to go if I want to take the long way home from work (less sidewalk-riding, more trails) WORST FEATURE OF THE RIDE: Not really anything RECOMMENDATIONS/WARNINGS FOR RIDERS: Can't think of anything that hasn't been said before
  8. Hmmmm, Bambi comes to mind... I think I'll pass on the ice-riding
  9. Maybe something for us here in Norway to try, what do you think?

    N00b: Z10 VS 18XL and where to buy?

    There are a few options open to you, being in Sweden you could look into e-wheels.no (even, if you're close enough, go there to buy it), though of the two they only have the XL. Speedyfeet in the UK is an option (Only XL as well) There is 1radwerkstatt.de in Germany (don't think they have the Z10) AliExpress, which you've already mentioned Ewheels.com, though they are in the US (Think they've stopped selling the Z10) I think theres also someone in France, but I'm not sure what they're called.

  13. I'm riding with a Jofama MC-jacket (Swedish ) with buildt-in protection, though not able to put anything in (by design at least) on my model (Voyage). Its not D3O either. But its possible to get trousers that can be attached to the jacket, and the cost is within your spec, unless you go for the more expensive ones. E.g. Jofama Neptune €149, and trousers at €129 (NEP Pants). My jacket has a vent on the back (haven't tried it in warm weather, so don't know how it will perform) and a removable inner lining. They have different jackets and trousers, and other brandnames (Halvarssons and Lindstrands) in the family. Jofama if you want to have a look. I like my jacket at least, which is grey and orange

    This is a big concern for me as well, and people who doesn't like these things (for whatever reason) will have a field day (Listhaug and Rinkeby comes to mind...).

    How was it to ride on that surface? Was it wet or dry? I want to try to ride on a track like that once.
