  1. Well thanks guys! I had the same issue with my XL. It started as a little shaking whenever I would stop. But eventually now it shakes almost all the time. I now know why. Took it apart and sure enough, both inner shells were super damaged. (Attached picture). I had recently replaced the motor, I wonder if I had put too much stress on it and cracked it when disassembly or reassembly.
  2. I've tried 80, 90% and 100%. I've also tried setting the amp to different settings too. I normally keep it at 5amps. I've tried turning it on then plugging it up.
  3. So I've had my KS18xl since April/May. I got the rapid charger with it, and tend to use that to charge my wheel during the day as needed, but always use the original charger at night. I started to notice that sometimes my rapid charger won't charge the wheel. As soon as I plug it into the outlet and wheel then turn it on, it goes to a green light, no matter what percentage the wheel is at. At first I thought it was because the wheel was hot, as I started having intermediate issues originally where it would work occasionally and other times it wouldn't. However now it's been 5 days s
  4. My local newspaper got some awesome photos of me that I wanted to share.
  5. @meepmeepmayer @Michael Vu @Kens @Unventor Thanks! I've been turning quite a few heads in Springfield since I've upgraded to the KS18xl. So I knew it was a matter of time before I would get a chance to be interviewed. That viral video, which is at 300k views, was what finally got it done. Streets in Springfield are generally really nice to ride on, they aren't too busy. It's a small town with only 150k people living here. I've gone over 2000 miles on my KS18XL and have only fallen off once on the street, due to going around a curve too sharp, it was slick smooth concrete. All my acc
  6. I'm in Des Moines, visiting this week. Brought my wheel to go for a few rides.
  7. Do they sync with your phone for speed and such? Or do they have a built in GPS?
  8. Thanks so much for the comparison review! I'm now interested to get a onewheel for all my friends that want to go riding with me. I have an electric push scooter that I let my friends borrow for rides. But the oneWheel would be a fun middle ground that wouldn't be as difficult as the EUC to learn on the fly.
  9. This is my second wheel, my first was the ninebot S1, Yes I get around a lot faster. Less having to recharge, less needing to use a car. Go anywhere without having to worry about my wheel dying. Oh and my diet has also changed, I'm eating cereal and Vienna sausage because it took a nice chuck from my purse to purchase the wheel. $$$, jk lol When you set it down against a wall, it doesn't stay upright, it rotates to its front or back because it's pretty top heavy. I wasn't noticing that many times it would rotate on its backside where the mudflap is and it caused the mudflap to go up
  10. Yeah, I figured so. The ewheels charger is so big that it really does charge the wheel up pretty fast so I'm satisfied with it. But that is very good to know information. Thanks guys!
  11. Yeah, I've considered plugging both the speed charger I have from ewheels.com and the original charger into it for a fast charge but am a little weary about that.
  12. So I've owned the 18xl for an entire month now. In those 31 days, I've learned a lot about this wheel. The power, distance on a charge, speed, and control are amazing on this wheel. I've already covered 1578km/980miles in the first 31 days. I use this as my primary mode of transportation, so this makes sense. I don't ride trails very often, just ride this to the store, to work, to church, or to meet up with friends. I do go for rides just to go for a ride, as I love the feeling. Distance is great, I can go to work, take an hour lunch, sometimes just riding around for that hour, back to t
  13. I have wrist guards and was wearing them the first few weeks of owning the xl, but I guess I have just gotten out of the habit of putting them on.
  14. I've gone over 1000 km on the 18xl so far and no high speed crashes at all. The only crash I have had was at a low speed and involved mud on a trail. I've learned that debris, mud, leaves, and rocks/gravel are the most causes of crashes for me, and those conditions rarely exist on the streets around town so it makes sense to just stay on the street, it's safer than the sidewalks. Lately, all I've been wearing is a motorcycle helmet. I have a motorcycle jacket, but it's too hot to wear it.
