  1. There are a lot of 3D Printing services on the internet now. I found this website that compiles a list: https://all3dp.com/1/best-online-3d-printing-service-3d-print-services/ Of the list, I've heard of Shapways: https://www.shapeways.com/ They seems to do small, consumer size orders. If I ever get my v11 (back ordered on ewheels) I'll try and have a bearing seal/flange printed up based on some plans I found on this forum. I'll then install the "breather hole" and the bearing seal and it should significantly extend the life of the bearings.
  2. Wondering if anyone saw the below video of a v11 bearing replacement and hub modification. Before the bearing housing is re-installed, the guy drills a hole in the hub and appears to plug it up with some sort of rubber tubing that he caulks into place. According to the comments, he does this because after the temperature inside the housing heats up, the only place for the heat to escape is through the bearings. However, when it bearing housing is cooled quickly, like when riding through water, a vacuum is created drawing moisture into the interior through the bearings. The moisture ca
  3. The ship with my wheel on it lost 260 containers during heavy seas off the cost of Japan! Not sure when I'll get it now... Here's the email from eWheels: "Good day, This is an update regarding your order of either the King Song S18, Inmotion V11, or accompanying accessories (V11 PowerPads, V11 Honeycomb Pedals). We discovered this morning that the vessel en route to the Port of LA experienced an engine failure during a storm. This resulted in the loss of ~260 containers (out of an estimated 6,500 containers on board). There's approximately 5% probability of our container
  4. OMG, look what I started! Thanks to everyone and all your input. It's a big financial decision and I want to make sure I get value for the money. Even a v10F is pushing $1500 in price and I think I'd grow out of a v8 pretty quick. Go big or go home right?!!! Now, after doing even more research , I'm concerned about the hollow bore motor issues: However, it looks like hollow bore motors are the future, so there's probably no avoiding this issue until two or three more generations of wheels are iterated and the kinks are worked out. I still think the bearing risk is worth
  5. Gotta have suspension! I almost bought a used v10 instead of the v11 but it just seems like suspension will keep the wheel on the road and smooth out the ride. That, and I really wanted a wheel I can grow into and be happy with long term.
  6. Looks like you mount the Power Pads on the foot/seat brackets and make two small holes to get at the screws underneath in case you need to disassemble and get the seat off or change a tire. It would be great if they just made the Power Pads mount with those screw holes so they could be installed and removed easily.
  7. Just notice I started this thread in the wrong part of the Forum! Sorry about that, nothing for sale at this time, but will repost if the V11 doesn't work out.
  8. OK, I broke down and just ordered a V11 from ewheels.com! I really like the S18, and it may have a superior suspension set up, but I plan on cruising and the V11 looks like it does that great with comfort! Also, I like the headlamp and taillamp on it, makes it look like a road machine.
  9. Yah, I'm leaning towards the V11. I read somewhere the v11 pedal heigh is adjustable, but extra height also means less chance of clipping something.
  10. I've decided I'm getting into EUC's. They look so much fun, and in a lot of ways, a practical form of personal transportation (especially exploring cities or on vacation). Since I'm a new rider I don't expect to be off-roading right away. I plan on riding mostly bike paths and roads, but there are some good hard packed dirt roads in the state parks nearby which I plan to ride. I believe a suspension EUC would be terrific after watching a ton of review videos. It seems that taking some of the bumps out of the ride makes it much more stable (so long as you have your suspension a
