  1. 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.
  2. 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 the front of the seat with one arm, so you push off with the arm to lift your butt and re-seat/scrunch, alternating arm-butt-arm-butt, helps you keep relatively balanced and centered over the wheel the whole ride for unexpected events.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. The ios version is available now. i just updated on my iphone.

    Ulf- Light bulb just went on in my head. Makes sense now. We are also FB friends. What a small EUC world this is. My first name is Adam.

    So the KS18L really impresses you, huh? so why in the world did you have to change your name from KingSong69 to US69 for anyway? What does the US stand for now? Unicycle Supreme? ?

    R.I.P. 18L

    I got your message the first time regarding the firmware of the wheel regarding the LED lights causing a board loop resulting in board frying. Your other added info of KS reproducing the fault and then FIXING it is reassuring to hear. Before that added news, no one could pinpoint what exactly was causing all these 18L frozen states. Glad to hear KS has isolated the cause at least. Hopefully no more surprises.

    R.I.P. 18L

    Well, my KS18L should arrive in about 3 weeks since I chose the snail mail route anyway. Only time will tell whether this most recent firmware update is the real fix...For now, I will avoid the KS app like the plague.

    R.I.P. 18L

    Sorry to hear about your wheel @hal2000. I hope you will have it up and running soon. When I finally get my KS18L, I will stay away from the native ios KS app despite this so called recent firmware “fix”. For now, I will just use DarknessBot to break free from the default beginner max speed. In fact, I will even delete the KS app from my phone before the wheel arrives.
  13. It is backwards. Based on the direction of the chevron pointing up, water would be directed towards the wheel when riding through a puddle. Since the power button is on the front (which would indicate the front of the wheel) and the chevron is pointing up, the wheel is mounted backwards. This would not really matter if the road is dry though. This would not affect performance on dry road at all. Wet road would be another matter. Since water would be directed towards the wheel, traction would be less.
  14. You are right about that. For some reason the whine for me was not that that annoying though. Maybe because i got used to that whine from my KS14C that i was relatively oblivious to the sound.
  15. i reviewed the V10 and I don’t recall an annoying whine at all. Maybe it was more evident when the V10 was climbing the steep hills of Cali as per Marty’s video but as I was traversing the park and riding it for about a half hour, there was no annoying whine heard by me.
  16. I am trying to make a DIY EUC learning brush like the Solowheel learning brush to help a friend learn riding his first EUC which is the Inmotion V10 when it arrives mid May. Does anybody have any idea as to the pedal height, plus the length x width and thickness of the V10 pedals? I had the V10 demo a couple days back but completely forgot to make these necessary measurements.
  17. That KS18L looks sleek and streamlined. I am loving those dual USB ports as well. Hopefully that mudguard will not be standard because it kind of reminds me of Mr. Snuffleupagus.
  18. I did my preorder too. I am torn between the KS18L and the Z10. For those getting the Z10 over KS18L, can you elaborate why?
  19. I put in my preorder deposit earlier today also and i am so psyched! Thank you, Jason for finally putting up the Pre-order page on your site. However, I am quite torn between the KS18L and the Z10. Having had the KS14C before and never had a single issue ever with the wheel I am quite biased. Unfortunately i don’t want to have 2 18 inch wheels either. For those getting the Z10, why would you prefer that over the KS18L? Jason- I know you have ridden both wheels. Which of the 2 do you feel at ease with in going faster and just overall feel of what a great EUC should ride like?
  20. Good to see you did well. Definitely a complicated fracture but your ortho did an amazing job putting you back together. The next several months of recuperation and physical rehabilitation will be tough but hang in there. i will be rooting for your quick recovery.
  21. Looks like you are the first patient in the lineup. it is always best to be the first patient. Everybody is awake and alert and it will be less likely for your case to be bumped by an emergency and then you won’t be waiting too long for your surgery to start. Best of luck to you!
