  1. Hey guys! Have the cutout issues been fixed with the 16X now? Safe to cruise in the mid to high 20's and maybe hit 30mph? Thinking of buying one to go with my MSX 100V. Also at 50% and under battery levels what speeds are you getting limited to? Thanks all!
  2. Hey how come you're selling it? Out of curiosity mind if I ask what you're replacing it with?
  3. Maybe but that's why at the end I grabbed it from the pads instead of doing it from the handle. I haven't opened it up yet though since I have to get new lift sensors since they're faulty.
  4. Hey guys, I just got this brand new 18XL with the 2200W motor from Ewheels and I've got about 100 miles on it now and it just yesterday after a couple hours of riding it started making this creaking when doing any kind of low speed direction changes. It was extremely subtle and less noticeable before yesterday to the point where I could hardly tell it was even there or any kind of abnormality. But something changed yesterday and now the creaky is longer and more pronounced. I saw one post on this from 2017 but there was never a posted solution. I'm not sure if the wheel is safe to ride and I also want it to not be noisy and be like I believe like my last 18XL was, silent. I'm guessing it's the pedal hanger bolts/screws whenever you want to call them which sucks, but please let me know when you guys think. I'll post links to a video. Thanks in advance!
  5. Not to bash you eUNITY because ideas are great but Never a remote!!!!!!!!Ever. EUC's are amazing because of what they are and how they work.
  6. I use the King Song app for my 18XL mostly, starting to use EUC World just like I used WheelLog but the thing is they both misreport battery levels which is annoying.
  7. I've actually done deliveries with both the MSX 84V 1600Wh and 18XL on Uber Eats and Caviar. Both are great and honestly screw e bikes. I actually tried an ebike for a bit and it was super annoying to have to think about locking it up and leaving it and yeah they're large, annoying and prone to being stolen. Having a wheel is so handy I love that I could just roll in and roll out (pun intended) of restaurants. I'd completely recommend the 18XL which is what I currently have. The comfort and performance are so on point, it's the perfect wheel for deliveries. It's also a bit more responsive feeling then the MSX because the pedals are farther from the axle. The head light is also great and the trolley handle is good although the MSX trolley is totally fine also IMO. On the 18XL Range is great and now with the upgraded motor (2200W) it's quieter and the firmware and new tire makes it more cushy then before and with a bit better/different performance. Either one you go for you'd be happy I'm sure. Just keep in mind if you ride for hours you will start to feel those angled MSX pedals. Even tho the locked in feeling is awesome and something I miss not having on my 18 XL, over a period of hours the MSX looses in comfort without a doubt. Also riding at night I can't state enough how awesome the 18XL headlight is, you can use it as a stand alone and yeah it's fricken bright. Side note I really don't recommend the Monster for delivery purposes. impractical, large, weight is top heavy and just not something i personally would want to navigate around the city with on a regular basis. An 18" wheel is definitely where you want to be at, forget anything larger, also I wouldn't recommend any of the 16" wheels i.e. 16X or Nikola at your weight. .
  8. Hey guys, I'm going to be volunteering at the event and it was brought to my attention that I can possibly have someone take my wheel down since I plan on flying down. Is anyone driving from Seattle down to LA to the games that wouldn't mind bring my KS 18XL along with them :)?

  10. Well it seems like this is the end of the line there haven't been any updates. I've got used to it (and still love my wheel) at this point and there doesn't seem to be a real fix for it anyway short of replacing the whole motor/rim. I guess anyone reading this in the future just know that buying a Chinese wheel comes with Chinese QC which can include have a rim that isn't trued correctly or however you say that. I hope this gets remedied in the future.
  11. So I tried EUC guy's video and rode it afterwards. It didn't make a difference. Like Bruno356 says mine isn't having an issue of the tire not running concentric to the axis. I did get a chance to test out a friends MSX on a ride today and lifting it up it has an off road tire but has the same issue as mine if not a little worse. It makes me feel a bit better knowing I'm not the only one. But that is a bit of a bummer for both of us even if it doesn't affect the ride quality. Marty if you wouldn't mind, it would be cool to see a video of your MSX! I'm more interested in that since that's what I have. Overall I'm happy with my wheel, I would just like to see some other peoples experiences and know whether these are more or less isolated cases or if it's something that's worth pursuing to get sorted out. On a side note I really wish Gotway and Kingsong could improve their QC in this area, they're selling to the US market now the bar needs to go up. I wonder how much of their business is coming here.
  12. Hey guys, So I tried to adjust the tire just by deflating and squeezing and attempting to manipulate it into some kind of better fit. It doesn't seem to have done anything. A few days ago (I never mentioned this) I went to a bike shop and they told me they suspected it was the rim. Do you guys think this is something that's worth taking up with Jason (bought from ewheels). I mean ultimately I assume it would have to be replaced with another motor/rim since I believe they are one unit? It doesn't seem to effect ride ability but I'm not really sure yet because the wheel is new to me. It's more the shaking at a certain rpm that bothers me. Plus I spent 2k on this wheel and if I'm the only one with this degree of wobble then that's upsetting and I'm definitely going to want some sort of actual remedy.
  13. Hey everyone, So here are my videos, please check them out and let me know your thoughts! Oh and the rubbing sound is the tire rubbing against my ghetto electrical tape mud guard, so nothing to worry about there... So one is a top view of the tire and the second is from the front so you can sort of see the hub motor/tire/rim. Also on a side note I noticed that when the battery hits 10% because of sag or w/e it is I start getting the 3 beeps! I'm guessing those are the ones I don't want to ignore?
  14. Hey Marty, Are you saying that it may indicate 0% or close to it but that the actually danger zone is only when the 3rd alarm comes on? I was paying attention for it and I just never heard it or any alarm but was watching the battery percentage hit 12% and around there. Also what are your thoughts on the wheel wobble? Does your MSX have side to side movement on the rim/tire? I'll post a video later on today. It doesn't appear to be the hub movement that bruno356 has on his KS18. The wobble on mine is definitely noteable at a certain speed when holding the wheel in the air or on a mount. That being said it does seem to ride ok, I do get wobbles but the wheel is relatively new to me so hard to say how much of it is me aka body tension. When I'm relaxed it's pretty smooth. But the thing is I spent 2k on the wheel I want to make sure it's sound :). Hey bruno, So my MSX doesn't seem to have the hub movement that you have or had on your KS18. I need to make a video which I'll do later but yeah. What'd you end up doing with your wheel?
  15. Hello all! I have a new MSX I've had for about a week and it's a great wheel and it's really starting to grow on me! But I have a couple questions. 1. When I lift the wheel off the ground there is a noticeable wobble from side to side in the tire/rim which worsens as the wheels spins more quickly, it at a certain rpm will shake me and the casing (not terribly). I brought it to a bike shop and the tech said he believes it is coming from the rim and not the tire. Is this a normal? Does anyone else have this with their MSX or otherwise? Would it be worth massaging the tire (not sure how to do it) to try to make it better? I'm happy to post a video if someone wants me to. 2. I was headed home earlier cruising between 21-26mph (at 32% battery) and I noticed that the battery percentage drops to somewhere between 12-21% and fluctuates. Is that dangerous, like is it possible that it could hit 0% and just shutoff or will the wheel stop me from doing that? Basically is it safe and do I really have the 32% battery that Wheellog displays? Thanks guys!
