    Suspension and Shock Absorbers. Current Options.

    Maybe you won't find this a good option, but I feel much more comfortable since I strongly decreased my tire pressure. When I started doing EUC in 2015, the risk of cutoff was so high that it was recommended to never ride below 2bars (somewhat 35 PSI) to reduce effort for the engine. Also the autonomy of the wheels at that time was quite limited. But now with a ACMs+ 1300wh there is no such cutoff/range issue any more. So I sometimes ride with less than a bar (yes less than 1) of tire pressure. For off-road, I find it quite okay. However on "hard" ground, to pass curb edges, 1 bar is minimum. My weight is around 68kg at the moment. Do you guys have experience riding very low pressure ? Did you experience puncture ?

    Ninebot one Z10 braking

    Ok let us know as long as Ninebot does not improve this braking issue, I think I will stick with my current 16" wheels.

    Ninebot one Z10 braking

    I think you are right, I felt a bit better on Inmotion V10F. Maybe I should go for 14 inches wheel after all

    Ninebot one Z10 braking

    Hi, I have been riding several thousands of km on my wheels, Ninebot One E+ and Gotway ACMs+ 1300wh. Now I have been trying some new wheels like Z10. It's a great wheel for passing obstacles but I am quite disappointed by the braking capabilities. Do you experience the same ? I thought I might be too light. My current weight is around 67kg. Maybe the wheel does not react because I can't weight enough on the back of the pedals ? Or is it really that lazy ? Is there a software upgrade/setting that changes this behavior ? I would not feel safe if I can't brake hard. For that reason I still prefer my good old ACMs+. In general, I find many recent wheels (MSuperX, ImontionV10, KS18L) a bit lazy to brake too. Is it me or all manufacturers forgot that short braking distance means safety ? Cheers

    Cologne Köln with ACM

    Hi german guys, I see there is a discussion in german, but sorry I don't really understand and Google Translate doesn't work so well there. I plan a trip to Cologne. Should I take my Gotway ACM 1300wh or is it too risky to be stopped by cops and get a fine ? Did you get fines for riding an EUC in Köln or other German cities ? Cheers

    I want a ACM... but legal issues

    Sounds interesting for my ACM ... Is it AG Insurance ?

    I suspect, the day you have an accident they will say "yes but... your wheel... it's not legal" and you won't have any coverage. I would be keen to have an insurance too, but I am afraid they won't cover any accident anyway.
  12. I just saw one more this morning ... so 5 in total
  13. Approximately 4 so far, all in Brussels area. EUC riders is a spieces that you typically observe in the summer when it's not raining.
