  1. Sold this morning. There might be another preused Z10s coming up later in the week.
  2. Posting on behalf of a Customer who purchased a Z10, didn't get on with the ultra-wide tire, is switching to an 18L... Has 15 miles on the clock, in near mint condition. Will cover shipping within the Continental US.

    Dualtron Spider

    Just launched the Spider pre-order page yesterday. The product manual dimensions specs suggests that the handlebar is foldable (see link on the product page); the max speed on the Spider is 37MPH, does it really matter then if its 3600W vs 2960W? Max weight is nebulous figure, if a single motor 250W eScooter has a 100kg limit spec, there's really no reason why the dual-motor 1,320W Spider can't support a 120kg load. https://www.ewheels.com/product/new-dualtron-spider-3000w-peak-1050wh-battery/
  4. If anyone is in the market for a pedal upgrade on the V8, we've just received 100x sets of the V10 pedals. The brackets on the V10 are a couple mm wider than the V8, so William 3D printed some alternative ones that keep the pedal closed when folded up. https://www.ewheels.com/product/new-inmotion-xl-pedals-for-v10-f-v8-glide-3-v5f-glide-2/ Looking for better foot support & comfort on your V8/Glide 3? The new V10 XL pedals are 1.5″ longer & provide 30% more surface area than the existing V8 supports. To achieve a closer fit to the smaller pedal support bracket on the V8/V5F, we have 3D printed special spacer washers that can keep the pedal in the upright position.
  5. Ha, you're too trusting . We just had a case yesterday where an MSX spontaneously shuts off. The Wheel was working fine for the first 8 miles, now turns off within 20 seconds of power up, very strange... Counterbalance is an 18L board which went up in smoke around the fuse area, pretty devastating carnage, total destruction of the PCB. Customer wasn't pushing the Wheel all that hard, it toppled over, & starting heavily smoking. Only Wheel that has an unblemished track record is the MCM5.

    Help! MSX charger or wheel is malfunctioning

    Probabilistically it's a charger problem: in a 'typical' brick charger failure, there's no sign of life when plugged into an outlet, although there have been exceptions to this. If, on popping off the panel, the integrity of the charging circuits looks fine, replacement charger is logical next step.

    Faceplant at 18-mph, on the Tesla

    We can't loose Marty! Do you think larger pedals would have helped? It's been on my todo for a while, but I'm going to get in touch with Gotway this evening to see if we get a 1 foot long pedal made. That headshot brings to mind this line: In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed

    Hmm, thanks, but underneath that Morgan-exuded exterior, it really must be powered by steam; the thing maxes out at 20kph. Seems like a perfect demonstrator vehicle of form over function.

    Google picked this one up. https://www.yankodesign.com/2018/12/06/the-gentlemans-e-unicycle/ THE GENTLEMAN’S E-UNICYCLE BY TROY TURNER 12/06/2018 If you’ve started to see those one-wheeled scooter designs zipping around your neighborhood, you know they all seem to fall into the “futuristic” category… but not everyone wants to look like they’re filming scenes for Back to the Future. Designed with this notion in mind, the ESCIS unicycle harkens back to a bygone automotive era. The vintage look is achieved by a glossy monocoque shell, pinstripe tires, and chrome detailing throughout. Finishing touches like a faux fuel cap, leather/denim saddle bags, bullet brake lights, and even a hood ornament offer up even more throwback appeal. Designer: Konstantin Kos “I decided to create my own working electric masterpiece. Real chrome on electric motor, custom-milled and polished aluminum handles and parts, genuine leather, 3d-printed carbon-filled plastic body, polished and painted in the auto-painting workshop. It’s a totally functional model with 1.5kw motor and 680wh battery placed on a leather bag, weight 20kg and max speed 20km/h,” Kos told Yanko Design.
  10. Thanks @EUCMania, I've reached out to my Ninebot rep to see how we can get these new lens/headlights. It's great that they've come the recognition that the blinding-oncoming-pedestrians-instead-of-the-road beam needed improvement....

    First Impressions & Photos of the KS18XL

    To put it in some context: the motor freezing bug occurred on about 2% of the 18Ls, & only while using the trolley from a static position. The firmware update that was rolled out two months ago, detects if the controller enters this lockup state & performs a reset—only if the motor is static, which has never been reported while riding. I don't fully understand how static discharge comes into play here, & if it does, then isolation (covering in a resin) of the specific vulnerable circuit would seem to be a more logical way of going about it. I'm going to discuss with Tina on Monday...

    Where to buy new 25cm pedals in Europe?

    Ours arrived on Wednesday into LA, shipped the boxes to Tucson, Fedex messed up, only twelve of the sixty sets arrived today, remaining 48 sets arriving on Monday

    New GotWay Nikola 17''

    Those estimates were based on the analogous 18XL pricing from Europe, with taxes, shipping, local margin, etc. It's really a bizarre world we live in, where the PRC slaps on an Export Duty Charge, & since August 23rd, we're now paying an additional 25% once they make landfall—which is factored into the price. We get a fair amount of inquiries from Europe, I tell these prospective Customers that it doesn't make any sense to ship Wheels to the EU, because not only are they going to have to pay the Fedex Express rates, but then pay a 3rd tax (VAT) on import!!! While Electric cars are receiving massive $7,500 subsides, eScooters/Wheels get double/tripled taxed, how is this fair!

    New GotWay Nikola 17''

    This is going to be tough sell: not only does it dwarf the MSX, which no one would mistake for being the most portable of Wheels, but the price is expected to be in the region of the $2500 territory, or 3000 2500 Euros for much of Europe I wish they could be more pragmatic, find a way to fit a 2.5" tire, under-handle switch & a 1200Wh pack (there's a lot of empty space on the handle side) on the Tesla, now that would be a winner! Thanks @EcoDrift/Alex for announcing on the forum first
