  1. Thankfully in central NY I've never seen a snake. And the trails are just a way to get from point A to B... if you can get away with it w/o cops hassle. Just like going to church!
  2. Do you ever ride grass with snow? Its a blast! Oh, and don't piss on my wheel!
  3. Can you share a link to it? I didn't see it. Meanwhile, since we're in the vid-thread, here's a good memory of a lap around a small park.
  4. My dog loves to open-up speed on grass. So I ride grass daily with him... we go about 5 miles/day mostly road at 7mph with speed bursts on grass going near the park where we're prohibited, through the schools, and so-on. When I looked back where it happened there was about 2" or 3" bumps that I was already set to absorb ... had it not been for the slope that let it spin/slip beyond recovery... my arm flying upward instantly was the bounced heals barely on the pedal-edges... then on ground... then rammed in the heals by the wheel. I have an S18 on order than I think would have absorbed the bump of it... but maybe not the loss of traction (can the shock enhance ground traction like it does for a race car???). For that I'm mixed for what tire I will put on it. Its either going to me the 14x2.50" knobby I used to have on this MSX-100V, or the Kenda K262-18 that I just ordered via ebay.
  5. Thank God for such a beautiful day! I did this! Vid/playlist: 7 Miles of Trails with Loki On EUC. Note I got bounced off at the very end, (in the pt 5 of 5 vid) LOL. Here's the part 5 vid from the end where the bounce off happens. I was climbing about 30% grade at the time.
  6. I have one (unicycle that goes >60 mph). In fact I've ridden it on 1 wheel for at least 1/10 mile at over 100 mph a several times. Its WHY I got into EUC. My dog is the beneficiary. Its an EBR 1190sx made by Erik Buel Racing in 2014. It has 220 hp and weighs just 400 lbs wet. I put a 49T rear sprocket on it for going slower in my neighborhood... and fwiw, ever since rev-limiting computers the auto-shifters are bs because once I get the clutch out in 1st its just a shift lift until it hits the rev-limit and pop-shifts... I reload and it happens 5 times till I'm at 150 mph with my front wheel dancing if not flying. Others have done sub-9.0 sec 1/4 miles on it. I wish I had ridden my own EBR on my track day instead of that GSX-600 crappy thing that injured my wrists with the forward lean and vib. I've got great mods on my EBR including risors and nicer seats that my GF sure appreciates, though also cuts my hand-weight to nothing. SO after 3 months (purchased in Sept... by Nov) I figured I'd better really really really know how to ride on 1 wheel ... was already using a hoverboard ... discovered a EUC on ebay, then jason cooch-tech with the e+... got my e+ in Nov 2018... rode 5 miles/day, 30 miles/week averaging 7 mph since then... got my MSX August 2019... and NOW... can't wait for the more comfortable S18 that I've ordered. hmm, my MSX is approaching this mileage!
  7. Thank you. This is same as my concept using a spring scale to measure 0mph torque. And yea, its the new wheel dilemma or I would have done the spring-scale-test.
  8. Exactly why I posted above... this: It would be cool if anyone would actually test their wheel torque. How? Get a hanging scale, eg: https://www.ebay.com/itm/500kg-1100-LBS-Digital-Hanging-Scale-Heavy-Industrial-Crane-Scale-W-LCD-SCREEN/201359235679?hash=item2ee1f21a5f:g:cE4AAOSwdzxdl-eu tie it to both foot plates and a parked vehicle. use a pair of crow-bars to pry down on the front of the foot plates Observe max static force on the scale. Convert the force from lbs to motor torque in ft-lbs by proportioning it to the wheel radius. For example, if its a 19" wheel, the radius is 9.5". So multiply the force by (12/9.5) to get ft-lbs. Otherwise, nobody can truly tell because the command authority needed interacts with riding style as well as power-pads, heel-grab, etc. And then there are different power ratings etc. People couldn't even tell torque diff between 84V and 100V MSX... it was a long thread that was never definitively answered. Here we are again. Since I don't want to risk popping any FETS in either of my wheels I will defer to the opinions here without any real facts on display.
  9. 0 to 3 mph is where I most want torque. Also, there are major difference in "mode" of "hard/medium/soft" among wheels. And my old e+ seems pretty torque-y compared to the MSX.

  11. Thanks, thus I will give the SR244 a try... may have to remove the S18 fender... I've not yet ridden a KS wheel. And I don't like the medium/soft modes on the MSX, and I don't like the softness of the Inmotion V10F. The e+ stays level like the MSX... hoping for a hard-mode in the new S18. Still, the shock absorber will be worth it no matter how hard/soft its command command-authority-vs-tilting-level really is. PS: Put deposit on it with ewheels. Jason said they were almost sold out of the initial order. Its arrival here may be sometime in July (I hope).
  12. Well I guess I will find out. I noticed in the pics that the fender looks easy to remove... and to duck-tape whatever may need protection in that space... so the main thing will be if I have to do as much or more knob shaving. Are they the same diameter tires? Like the 2.75"x14", vs KS = 18", vs MSX = 19? ??? Or is it actually like a moped-13" or something else??? I'm definately hoping its the same and that the 2200W might make it torque'ey enough to run the SR244. If anyone here knows the actual diameter and its different than the MSX then I'll be shoping for a tire for it that's similar agressive tread to the SR241 or SR244. And mabye a knobby for winter.
  13. So I just ordered a KS-S18. Does anyone know if the same tires that fit the MSX will fit the S18? If not, what's the closest to the SR241 for the S18?
  14. Glad to. FWIW, the MSP's extra torque might make the SR244 better than it is on the MSX. On the MSX it seems to speed-torque/authority limit around 25 (w/o big strong confident pushing ancles bite of a lean), just like the knobby does. Now more riding the SR241 today... its the best tire for spring/summer in Syracuse NY. Winter here the knobby is best. (In My Humble Opinion, IMHO)
