  1. Just under 2 months owning this agile beast. Its at 1300km. I really like it alot and was really hoping it would be a wheel I can still cheat on sidewalks with. Go slow on. I found it can do the slow stuff and the street cruising and the gravel trails. Yup, lifting it into the car is somewhat cumbersome but manageable with some planning and practice.
  2. 22mm or 7/8” diameter. At the bends it’s not very consistent in diameter. the finish is ok. My anodized aluminum fittings do scuff up the finish as I twist them around the tubes. It was holding up but now there are scratches down to bare metal. Lots of ways to dress it up. Grip tapes, vinyl wraps, sand and paint, or shrink wrap comes in many sizes and colours.
  3. Maybe when doing periodic xray inspection of the pedals/pedal hangers…. Scan the rim at the same time.
  4. V10F is pretty easy once get a good experience of removing the side covers. Can also easily mod the side covers and not have to remove pedals. 1. take pedals off 2. remove side covers 3. Open the controller cover, unplug motor wire which is in a harness so just one connector! 4. Remove bolts holding pedal hangers to shell. thats it, the shell lifts off in one piece to reveal the motor/wheel. No snaking of wires.
  5. Ordered a Sherman in January and arrived in April. Ordered a V10F in August and Arrived in October. No taxes or duties even though they didn’t promise anything except that most don’t get dinged. China to Vancouver. Tracking was non existent except the last days and then it just gets left at the door both times. No signature. That felt risky.
  6. I ordered these cause they are 22mm. Will be here soon and hopefully they work out. C$ 20.99 16% Off | Universal Adjustable Tube Bull Bar Roll Bar Tube Cage Mount Brackets Clamps for Off Road Offroad Led Light Bar Work Driving Lamp https://a.aliexpress.com/_mNYg897
  7. Comparing V8F 2.125” wide tire and the V10F 2.5” tire ... made a huge difference in stability feel. Now Sherman at 3” wide and 20” diameter, is on another level yet. but they are still unicycle on a small contact patch so relatively nimble. Hard to explain but I feel the Sherman is quite capable. V10F is still nice but when it’s a tighter space. The V12 being 3” wide is likely morestable than the V10F. Not exactly sure if the diameter will add to it in stability but the diameter helps with dampening bumps for sure.
  8. Tube bending is an art! Love it
  9. The device he used has a voltage regulator inside. It’s converting the 12v of the Sherman front port to 5v for the USB :
  10. It has to be patent legal issues preventing more companies to make these devices. Self balancing robotics is like first year level stuff in college. There are kids who given the resources, can scale up their lego projects to EUC levels. we are likely biased as EUC riders. Car owners already have a means of transportation. Cyclists are getting fit. Skateboarding has a lifestyle. Scooters got government support and taking up global manufacturing. So how big of a market is adult incomes who can have time to roam around the streets and not for health reasons? parents don’t want their kid
  11. Less than 9 months w 3000kms. Find a hill and drill it. Like spend hour just start stop start stop.
  12. I like having a cushion near the top of the wheel. Otherwise I like accelerating from leaning. The small Sherman pads are perfect for me. The bumps only as reference points. Braking has been ok maybe a bit more of a bump for e braking but I like having nothing impeding the front and just a bit of grip from the cushion.
  13. I ordered from AliExpress in Jan 20, 2021. Hard to say when it shipped out since tracking was iffy. I received it about 2 weeks ago in April 2021. I put some calipers on the rim and it shows 60mm wide. It is a red button model.
  14. I weigh 205 lbs. first charge got me 117 kms till one bar beeping and experienced the tilt. Second charge 120 kms.
