  1. Heh. Well me I guess. I had a Tesla. I sold it when I bought an mcm5. I don’t know which one actually accelerates, faster but the mcm5 experientially feels like it does. The smaller wheel makes it feel so much more maneuverable that I feel like it’s the better wheel for what I value from EUCs. I don’t want a tank of a wheel, I want one that feels almost telepathic. That’s what I personally enjoy from theses things, and that’s why I like the Mten3 and the mcm5 the best so far. Being the manufacturer of the hands down best 14” wheel has to be a decent use of r&d attention no?
  2. I will shamelessly say this stuff goes over my head. A TLDR or summary for us that are less than an intellectual master on the subject would make this post a great resource, possibly one worth pinning?
  3. Sad to hear that the parts are not compatible with the original version. I guess I’ll be happy with what I have for now. Honestly I think the complaints that the pedals are too low are overall true, but overblown. I have yet to scrap them on a bigger sweeping turn, only have scraped with low speed maneuvering, which I can avoid by changing my technique. Also the complaint that the front plastic scraping seems to be a non-issue for me too, even over sizable dips. I think as long as you keep the tire pressure high and expectations realistic you’ll be happy. The stability of the lower pedals could even be an overall advantage right? ...Still would be nice to have that piece of mind of never hitting crap tho. Ohwellohwell
  4. Ooh I would love if just the hangers were available for purchase. Give me a lot of peace of mind going over bumps. I recently bought a mcm5 off of aliexpress claiming it was the 2020 version. I noticed the trolley seems taller, and the pedals were black. But I just confirmed based on the photos that I didn’t seem to get the higher set pedal hangers sadly.
  5. Water you going to do now?
  6. message sent. You and I can communicate from here. If anyone else would like to express their interest please feel free to do so. Priority will be given to those paying the asking price, then chronologically. Thanks!
  7. This forum has locks their direct messages to new users until they have positive (+2) reputation i think (someone correct me if I'm wrong). i'll PM you when you're able to reply. Yes, I'd be willing to ship it to Florida, but just want to clarify a few things from the original post. You're okay covering the shipping and the PayPal fees (or using Venmo with no fees) right? I'd imagine from CA to FL you're looking at a $60 shipping rate but I can't be sure till i provide your specific address to eWheels.
  8. Hello everyone, So, after having had a chance to test out the entire smaller end of the Gotway lineup, I can say with confidence that the mten 3 and MCM5 are for me. Meaning my Tesla v2 that i just bought earlier this year from eWheels is for sale. Don't get me wrong, this is a FANTASTIC wheel, but living right in the heart of downtown Walnut Creek, I really don't need to stability, distance, and top speed it offers. As you can (hopefully) see from the photos, this thing got pretty decent treatment in the 4 months I've had it. 350+ miles in all. The tread in the tire is just barely broken in. Not a curb jumper, not an offroader. 300 very easy miles with some minor flubs and 0mph when I loaned it out and friends/family got caught off guard I guess. So yes, there are a few dings and scratches on the pedals (fyi upgraded!). Zero mechanical issues. Battery charges to 100% aka 84v. Zero repairs needed or on the horizon. Like I said, just got the wheel in January of this year. So extras: Yes, the pedals are the larger Nikola pedals. Also, I made my own pads. I've tried lots of different combinations of shapes, but this is the one that worked best for me. I'll give you the stock pads too, but I'm confident you'll like mine better. Made from high density neoprene, then wrapped with durable synthetic leather, then stitched with high strength nylon. Good material for comfort and maneuverability. Also, I used weatherproof velcro to stick on a little satchel just big enough for a drawstring backpack. Lifesaver for me when I forget to bring a backpack for errands. Also put a tire pressure monitor cap on the end of the valve so you don't have to meticulously check the air pressure. These things are great (available on Amazon here if you're curious) Price is $1,100 (listed on CL/locally for 50 bucks more). Willing to ship but you'll have to pay for eWheels shipping deal (between 40-60 bucks). No PayPal please as they take a hefty cut from the seller and it's a bit too easy to abuse it seems. Money order, cashier's check, or Venmo preferred. I hope whoever is interested feels confident in me as a seller. I try my best to be communicative, thorough, and easy to work with. Please feel free to poke around my post history here; I've bought a decent amount of used wheels here with no hiccups. Looking to keep that track record going.

  9. Direct message sent. This might be a mice upgrade for my 75 year old dad on a v5f+!
  10. What I’ve learned by browsing here a lot: 1) tesla for best maneuverability 2) 16x for the best trolly handle/commuting 3) Nikola for the best high speed cruising
  11. https://instagram.com/eucyou?igshid=15aoi9edcxw56 I was hunting the same thing down awhile ago. This guy on Instagram from Russia will sell them to you for about $180. They come in 3 sizes: 10mm, 15mm, and 20mm I passed. I’ll play with an mcm5 for awhile and maybe if I can’t tolerate the height I’ll consider. Seems crazy expensive for a simple fix. And considering the longest size still only lifts 2cm, it’s not something I am excited for. If you find a solution for it I’m very interested in hearing about it lol.
  12. ah, didn't see this till recently. Ewheels has a high speed version too that boasts 45 mph as well available for pre-order Link: https://www.ewheels.com/product/new-gotway-msx-pro-100v-1800wh-battery-2500w-motor/

Seems like it could be sketchy, but the increase of speed (45mph) it sure is very tempting.
  14. Got any leads for relevant codes for California? would be interested in having something to point to or talk about, having been questioned/warned for riding in parks with bike paths.
