  1. Mine did the same thing after a short period of time. I was told my tire pressure was too low, but it pulled into turns and got squerrly on white lines when any higher...
  2. There is no reason they need to know its an EUC battery and that's just battery profiling/discrimination... LOL Take the batteries out of the wheel and pack up the wheel nicely. When you get to the airport you check the wheel. When you get to security you tell them its for "professional audio/visual equipment" as per the guideline... Size limits: Lithium metal (non-rechargeable) batteries are limited to 2 grams of lithium per battery. Lithium ion (rechargeable) batteries are limited to a rating of 100 watt hours (Wh) per battery. These limits allow for nearly all types of lithium batteries used by the average person in their electronic devices. With airline approval, passengers may also carry up to two spare larger lithium ion batteries (101-160 watt hours). This size covers the larger after-market extended-life laptop computer batteries and some larger batteries used in professional audio/visual equipment. https://www.faa.gov/about/initiatives/hazmat_safety/more_info/?hazmat=7 I get top 22mph on my MCM4HS... I can cruise comfortably at 18-19....
  3. Guys, the S2 is basically an E+ in a smaller package. The batteries are designed for making it flyable, since you can fly with two under 160wh batteries in your carry on with most airlines. The S2 is great wheel and 14" is super maneuverable. The C/C+/E/E+ are old at this point and the P has too many issues. I know from the inside but without detail that their R&D department is working on some next gen tech (think uniwheel quality) so I'm certain we will see a spectacular new 16" Ninebot One some time next year.... For now E+ is still easy to get and sure it will be for a while and the S2 is an excellent option for smaller/lighter on the go wheel. I'm honestly hoping they pick up the speed a bit to about 19-20mph and achieve at least 25-30 miles range (real life). For now, knowing the S2 wasn't sufficient going to cover my speed/mileage needs, I was forced to get a Gotway MCM4 HS (I have an E & E+) which gives me 22mph top with 18-19 cruising, and my 6' 200lb ass get 20miles to 20%battery... Could prob do another 5 easy at 15mph top till 10%.... Anyway, Gotway is an Awesome machine (prefer ride to my bots). I do plan to have an S2 as my travel wheel, and will likely get next years new Bot, but for now my daily wheel is my Gotway.... Anyway.... This is just my 2 cents....
  4. I would have to have taken pics and video the whole time, but i unfortunately did not.... I used two mini selfie sticks and a plastic handle all bought on eBay. A Fein tool to cut the pad, some metal/plastic epoxy and plastidip.
  5. Fascinating thought on this: Riding around in NYC, I pass A LOT of people. I began noticing that some people had an uncanny ability to know I'm coming from a distance. I've noted it many times and began to pay attention to factors that may give me away, such as shadows, onlookers, etc... I was perplexed until @Keith said "BTW, I cannot hear any sound at all (or it is a frequency above my 60 year old range) on my KS-14C, it has always amazed me just how quiet it is." This is when I realized that its all younger males and females. Just thought it was interesting.
  6. Anyone else think some of this info should be pinned?
  7. It works well enough for my purposes, it does have GPRS. Im using it on my Ninebot E+ without an issue. Waiting for my MCM4 to arrive from China.... think they will ship it today.
  8. For GPS, I installed this guy: Mini GPS It runs on 60v so I connected it right inline with the battery, so its ALWAYS on, unless battery dies completely, which I've never seen....
  9. 60 years old and riding an EUC... I love it!!! I'm gonna guess it's not as quiet as you think
  10. I dont like the acrylic ones, I had actually made myself one out of wood, but I soon realized you can not turn it on while in those stands. The wheel will just spin out. I turn mine on commonly so its an issue for me.
  11. Right, me too, but I got sick of it tipping in heavier winds, and odd shaped floors (which are VERY common in NYC). So I ordered the stand, which sucks, only because the feet are rubber, it just tips super easy. I ordered short metal pegs and post to put through the Ninebot stand holder. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B012TAKDSW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008IEEX8A/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Still waiting for their arrival however.... My measurements say it will work... I used this as my stand, I have one at work, one at home & one I can attach to my bag.... http://www.amazon.com/Universal-Instrument-Adjustable-Lightweight-Professional/dp/B0173WJT8Q?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_search_detailpage
  12. I had assumed most of it was coming from the electronics and board, not the motor itself?
  13. My guess would be based off the weight it will have a much large load and therefore cut out earlier. The lift test tells you the true limits of the machine, no load...
  14. That's the point, rubber ends is the issue. The rubber is soft and therefore has give, the 9bot will not stand if it has any wiggle room. You need to have solid metal feet, then it won't tip. I commonly stand my 9bot relatively stable without the stand, adding the stand made it less stable, again due to the rubber feet. I plan to order metal pegs from Amazon. In the photo attached you can see a 9bot standing on its own. http://www.amazon.com/Mountain-Antislip-Cylinder-Aluminum-Standing/dp/B00AMC2P18/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1460298245&sr=8-4&keywords=Bike+foot+pegs
