    Search feature problem

    I'm not sure... I don't know what an EX-1 error is, so I searched for it and the only thing I found was this thread!

    WAF (Women Acceptance Factor) on EUCs - your experience welcome!

    My Long Suffering Wife (LSW) decided that I was so far gone that she conceded to be my partner in an EUC business... I probably should have bought her some flowers for Valentines day, but I was too busy riding marketing!

    KS 18XL mudguard - Found

    Your local butcher should be able to source a bull scrotum... just dry it out and stick it on! And as an extra bonus you can use it to hold loose change or a drink bottle.

    The Photo Thread

    Because you have so much opportunity to do that where you live...

    Looking for 16S in Australia

    There is always two sides to every story... And some sides with more colourful language than others. Before this thread goes nuclear, perhaps we should remember that this forum is a place of harmony and zen-like appreciation for the single-wheeled self-balancing deity that we all serve.

    S. Calif - Short Griffith Park Ride for 09Feb2019

    Surely with the weather being THAT BAD, the mud would have frozen over???

    Or perhaps it is real and is about to be discovered... https://www.radionz.co.nz/news/business/378709/ikea-planning-on-coming-to-nz Awesome... I have a spare Airwheel X8 that you can borrow while you are here! Or maybe something a little bigger - Let us know as you start to plan your trip, if we can work with the locals to see when and where you can meet up and ride with others, which may help plan your tour of Godzone… Ohh… EUC Tourism. Did I just become a travel agent too? Did you catch the Mrs. TFU "wiggle" a bit later on too?

    Thanks @Lutalo - Some of the video is a bit rough (mounted on a wheel causes vibrations and my hands aren't much better). But I think we are on the verge of a "breakthrough" here in New Zealand, so I wanted to inspire the locals by showing as much of our ride as possible...

    KS 18XL mudguard - Found

    I can sell you one... PM me...

    Towards the end of January, Chrissi and I had a road-trip through to Auckland, to join a group ride around part of the city and waterfront. Anyone wanting to see a bit of New Zealand, check this out... And for the record, this size of a turn-out is pretty impressive for a small country like ours!

    Looking for 16S in Australia

    Dale is definitely much more of an EUC ambassador than an EUC salesman... I don't believe he intentionally defrauds anyone, but there is a history of delays or non-delivery.

    In the news...

    Meanwhile in (not just) New Zealand... Lime wheels locking up could mark the beginning of the end for e-scooters "I was heading downhill, sailing over smooth white concrete at about 30kmh, when the front wheel locked up, sending me flying over the handle bars." https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/industries/110317293/lime-wheels-locking-up-could-mark-the-beginning-of-the-end-for-escooters

    I've talked with the guy that runs Alpha Beta Wheels, and he indicated that he did have (some) stock...

    Ninebot es2 creaking help!

    Try turning the scooter upside-down and then clean and lubricate the suspension...

    Looking for 16S in Australia

    Hi @monocle - unfortunately it is too difficult for me to ship wheels to Australia... But if you want local, try https://www.alphabetawheels.com.au/, they are Melbourne based even!

    From KS18 to KS16?

    Hey Dan. You will find the KS-16S much more agile than the KS-18... And while the motor has less power, the smaller diameter provides a lot more torque, making it quite fun!

    How do I silence the system beeps my 18XL?

    I have my "beeps" set for 48 km/h... The problem is that, unless I have a 40+ km/h tail wind, I can't hear them at that speed anyway! Seriously, it isn't an issue...

    Mobile app

    The idea is that when there are lights in front of you the headlight can turn itself off... So you don't blind on-coming riders / drivers. And if there is light in front of you then you don't need to rely on your light as much... Let me know how you find it.

    Mobile app

    There is a new app coming out from King Song... Some dealers have a prototype version for testing, and the finished app should be available (hopefully) later in February. As to why the current one it isn't in the Play Store - who knows? But 1.54 is the current release version. I appreciate that you needed to change some settings, but once that is done, I would suggest using WheelLog (available in the Play Store) instead - while you can't change much, it presents a lot more information, both in real-time and in a stored log. Now, to your light sensor - As you say it turns on and off with car lights, I am guessing that you have an 18L/XL? Assuming that is correct, do you have the light sensor to the front of the wheel when you ride or the back? Most often people ride with it to the back (as the wheels often ship with the mudflap on the other side). My understanding though is that it was designed to be at the front (and the power switch to the rear), which changes how it reacts considerably. So you might want to try that - and if that works for you, all it takes to make it a permanent change is to switch the mudflap to the other side.

    Tesla buys Maxwell!

    Will the size be an issue for us though... ie. is the Wh/cm³ better or worse than our current technology?
