  1. The seat height is perfect for me. Just make sure to lift the heels up to enable your quads to rest as well as increasing comfort.
  2. I weigh 200 lbs and never had issue with short intermittent seat riding on the KS18L. At 220, I would not recommend seated riding on the KS18L for long periods. Maybe for one minute just to rest the quads should do.
  3. I did not have any shell problem with seated riding on the KS18L. However, I would only sit for less than 5 minutes at a time. Jason of EWheels had told me that short intermittent seat riding on the KS18L shell should not be an issue. I have since sold my KS18L and have now adapted the same KS18L seat to fit on my Nikola 100V. I do more seated riding now knowing full well the Nikola shell is very sturdy.
  4. Here is the seat mod I made for the Nikola back in August 2020. I have gone hundreds of miles since then with seated riding and the seat is still secure.
  5. I know the shell is not as tough as the KS18S seat but I only sit for a couple minutes and that even makes a difference in decreasing foot fatigue. I have used the seat for months and the shell has not broken. I am 5’11” and 200 lbs.
  6. When I made that KS18L custom video above I was not fully relaxed with my leg muscles when seated. The following day, my quadriceps were sore. It took several more tries in my practice to get really comfortable with seated riding to be able to really relax my quadriceps while only my metatarsals were touching the pedals. You first have to get used to that new sensation when riding seated and learn to trust the wheel. Do not lean too far forward. When you want to accelerate put more pressure on the front seat with your hand as if riding a bronco but not too much. You do so by grabbing
  7. You can use anything on the trolley handle to make the fit tighter, eg. rubber tourniquet, old tire tube, Velcro wrap, etc. The Velcro wrap around made the fit quite tight and the seat has never fallen off in the past few months.
  8. Hi Seage- I finally just read your post now. My name is Ethereal on this forum and also known as Adam U on YouTube. I hardly get on this forum. I love this custom KS seat. I ride seated whenever my legs get tired. I weigh 205 lbs. and I am 5’11 and this seat fits me well. So far the shell on my KS18L has been able to tolerate my weight but I only use the seat for a minute or two. That’s enough to give me the second wind to keep going on my KS18L. I did wrap some Velcro on the trolley handle to make the fit tighter. I still highly recommend the custom seat.
  9. I am posting this for a friend. This is an InMotion V10F he just bought a few months ago. The mileage is less than 100 miles. No problems with the wheel at all. Max speed is 25 mph. Battery is 960 Wh. Motor is 2000 watts. You can contact him either email or cell. Billyliu08859@gmail.com Cell# 7326682341
  10. If you are willing to wait, Ewheels.com might have a specially priced MTen3 325 Wh wheel for you for around $590. I just couldn't wait anymore and just ordered the 512 Wh version of the MTen3 from Jason of EWheels.com. As of a few days ago, Jason still has 2 MTen3 512 Wh models in stock. Jason is awesome and gives great after sales support too.
  11. The ios version is available now. i just updated on my iphone.
