    New toy, Msuper X experience...

    Brand loyalty is for suckers IMHO. Your post is a perfect example. The structure is <pre formed opinion> then <motivated reasoning>. If the MSX had half of the problems as the KS18L it would be receiving so much flack on here. The 18L gets a pass because of course, KimgSong is high quality1!11!!1! Instead it's the shipping damage, crash damage, and a lack of zip ties (!?) that exemplifies the lack of quality in the latest Gotway wheel. That is what is frustrating, especially for new people contemplating what wheel to buy out of the two. I agree!

    Wheels for heavier riders?

    Yeah, get a helmet! .

    Well, I can say that if I ever do crash on it it won't be because of a lack of power. It has an insane amount of reserve power at the speeds I ride at ~40km/h.

    Well, it is tiring seeing you ignoring the shortcomings of other wheels while highlighting those of Gotway for some reason. There have been many problems with the 18L - lockups and overheating (with no fix, just a firmware patch workaround), burned out headlights, trolley sensors not working, tire rubbing on shell, now reports of one having oscillation at speed...the list goes on. Where as with the MSX. What, some wires aren't neatly routed and the shell gets damaged from crashes or shipping damage? Somehow this wiring is fine on the 18L: But this on the MSX is not: I guess bottom line is we have a long way to go on all wheels in regards to improved quality, but check your bias sometimes!

    I wouldn't worry, the MSX is a beast - I'd go with Marty's estimate of 350lbs for sure. I've carried my 90lb kid short distances (so 310-320lbs total), pushed my wife on her bike up a really steep hill at the lake, jumped off a 2.5 foot deck multiple times, and have suffered no ill effects to the wheel.

    Gotway Unreliability is a Myth

    I see. I bought this wheel for the big tire and more comfortable ride, and it is everything I could hope for. I have it set at 36 because I'm not comfortable wiping out going any faster than that, so I can't say how the tiltback behaves at 55. Although the unload speed of my wheel is 79km/h so at 55 it seems like it should have a lot of reserve. The wheel beeps at you if you overdrive it when the battery is low. May be tough to hear at 55. I haven't hit the low battery 'get off me' tiltback yet.

    @eddiemoy what's your issue with the tiltback algorithm? On my MSX it is smooth and flawless, set at 36km/h.

    Replacement 84v charger for MSuper X

    As US69 suggested maybe get in touch with https://www.1radwerkstatt.de, I think he should be able to help you pick the appropriate charger.

    Replacement 84v charger for MSuper X

    Yes, the 5A charger is what I use and it is worth it for sure. Also allows you to charge to only 80% which can really extend the effective lifespan of your batteries.

    msuper x reveiw updates

    Yeah, I have over 1000km on mine, it's a dream to ride. Not a lot of the bells and whistles of the other wheels but that seems to have been a sticking point on them anyway (lots of reported issues). Like I said in another post I can't go back to riding my KS16 that I used to love so much. It just feels like a toy in comparison.

    How many kilometers is your ride? Mine is about 12km. Also I'll have to post an update to my video above. I did some testing on the studs and it looks like they can work themselves loose. As a fix I modified a nail and with my drill I can insert the head into each hole to make a proper pocket for the studs. Makes them much more secure and easier to insert, and it's a quick process.
