  1. I agree with many here that there seems to be a great satisfaction in overcoming the learning to ride process. The learning really never stops at least for me. I started my journey with balance devices on the Onewheel. I still love it and ride it but don't get near the enjoyment as I do on an EUC. I was hooked on the Onewheel but I can say I'm addicted to my EUC's. 😆
  2. Yeah, 30psi seems pretty much perfect for me. Went on a 20-mile ride and for me it was a perfect balance both with a comfortable ride and great stability.
  3. Thanks for reminding me, I have to delete the ad. It was sold.
  4. This is an excellent wheel with lots of power and not too heavy. Comes with some pretty cool extras as well. I love this hobby and if I don't stop myself, I'll keep on buying each shiny thing that comes along until I'm broke. I'm forcing myself to only keep the two wheels I ride the most. My mten3 and Z10.
  5. Already have 2 other wheels and a Onewheel so if I don't do something soon it may get out of hand, lol. Purchased from eBay.
  6. Kingsong 14S, 800W Motor/840Wh Battery pack Works perfectly and yes there are some scratches. Only 65 miles. V1.09 firmware. I bought this brand new in August 2019. I sanded the covers with a green "scrubby" to matte the finish. It will be shipped in the original box. Extras included in this sale: 10" foot pads. Originals also included in sale. EUC bodyguard. This is a must have for ultimate wheel protection. 67.2v 5 amp fast charger included. $150 new, used twice. $650 includes free shipping to your door in the USA only. No warranty implied or given by me. No return, sale is final.
  7. Ironically I tried your number 1 yesterday, works good.
  8. One of the major items that attracts me and keeps me on the Z10 so much is the amount of stability whether going straight or turning. I too like hanging off the side when I'm making faster corners on the Z10. I used to do this on my motorcycles and it's very comfortable for me turning this way. I lean and grip the wheel with the outside leg and adjust my lean to make it turn as much or as little as I need to. I know that you already know how to do this and I'm throwing that information out there for people that may not understand or know how to turn in this fashion. I love this wheel.
  9. Put another 10 miles on the Z10 yesterday. Getting very used to this wheel now. Was trying out different psi settings and find that 30psi seems to be near perfect for me as far as a smoother ride and it's reactions to road imperfections. I actually thought that because of the size of the tire that the wheel would be less maneuverable but I find that for me it cuts just tightly as my 14S and is more stable doing it. At my current skill level, the 14s would have put me on my butt if I tried some of the same tight turns on it. I mentioned before about this will being a very good wheel as far as stability for a new rider. After a new rider gets past learning how to balance, the Z10 provides extra stability when going straight and turning. I still consider myself a new rider as I've only been at this little over a month and have less than 100 miles total with all of the wheels combined.
  10. I've run mine at 32 since the day I started riding it. After only a few miles it seemed to ride great and I got used to it quickly. Since I'm sometimes curious I dropped it to 26 and found the Z to be noticeably less comfortable to ride. More sloppy and loose along with the tramline effect increasing a lot. I did approx. 4 miles at this pressure and didn't get more comfortable. I put it up to 30 and did a quick test around the driveway and street. It was better but I need to get out and do some miles to be sure. Like others, I'm going to keep trying different pressure settings to see if there is that ideal one that works for me.
  11. I've ridden on the street and bike lanes in my area and 5-0 has passed a number of times and not raised an eyebrow so at least for me here in Virginia I'm guessing it's ok. I'm not going to bother looking it up anywhere and will wait for the local 5-0 to stop me if it's illegal. Ride On
  12. I have been running my Z10 at 32 psi since the first time I rode it and found that to be a good pressure as the Z10 rides well for me with that. I was curious as to how the Z10 handles different tire pressures so I tried dropping from 32 to 26 psi. Felt different enough that I was no longer comfortable on the wheel. Similar to my motorcycle with less tire psi, it felt squirrelly and loose. I tested the lower psi on the same surfaces that I had ridden on just a day prior so I could tell the difference immediately. I put the pressure back up and felt more comfortable. I think it comes down to a lot of variables as to the different psi levels that people like and use. Road surface, experience, riding style and weight of the rider are just a couple. I'll keep testing to see if there is another psi level that I like. It may end up that I stick with 32 psi. I hope to get plenty of opportunities to rack up the miles since I just got the Z10 last Friday and don't have a lot of miles on it yet.
  13. That's a good one to test. I'd like to try something like that with mine here. I'll have to see if I can find something similar.
