    Yeah I cant wait to see reports, this may be my next wheel.

    Tire lifespan?

    Probably a lot of variance, but I am 100kg and my KS16 tire should last between 3000-4000km. If I remember correctly have about 2500 on it so far and it is noticeably worn in the center. I already bought a new one, just waiting to replace it until I must.

    That's awesome, I did the same at the lake this year. Works suprisingly well! I almost wondered if it would be a good way to get people to learn to ride the wheel, as there is something to hold onto.

    New KingSong 18L?

    How far do you need to go on one charge? With 840wh I can already go 40+ KM, seems like 1000wh should be plenty for 99% of people.

    Severe shaking on Kingsong KS16 at rest

    Have you checked if the main circuit board is loose? I believe it is held down with 4 screws, if they came loose I believe it could cause this symptom.

    Are you also using your non-dominant foot?

    Yeah I've started practicing this as well. Getting a lot better fairly quickly. Also learning to ride backwards a lot better quickly. Have been focusing on doing the things I'm not good at.

    Preferred riding footwear

    I'd be ripping that all off and replacing it with just grip tape. On my KS16 I replace the grip tape once it wears out and it's a dream when it is brand new.

    Survey on Personal Electric Vehicles

    Unlike a bike it is no effort on the wheel to slow right down, pass the pedestrian, then accelerate again. I ride a lot of shared use paths (meant for pedestrians and cyclists) on both my wheel and bike and this is common - even with a bell often pedestrians are wearing headphones. It's more annoying on a bicycle by far.

    King Song KS-16S tire pressure?

    True, I agree with that on a trailer. But I guess in this case real world data trumps the number printed on the side of the tire. I follow this forum pretty closely and I can't remember anyone having a catastrophic tire blowout. I think KingSong rates their KS16 to 300lbs. I've carried my 80lb kid short distances so I've tested that as well - no blowout. Of course that was a low speeds for safety purposes.

    King Song KS-16S tire pressure?

    I have a KS16 with that tire, and I weigh 215lbs, probably on the high end of people who ride these. With the weight of the wheel that's probably close to 250lbs. Plus on short trips (5km) I've picked up probably 25lbs of groceries in a backpack. 3000km + and no problems with the tire. I usually run 50psi. Once it drops too low (35-40psi) the tire feels mushy and you can feel it bottom out when hitting certain bumps. My tire is getting to end of life though, it has a pretty good flat spot in the middle. Might get one more season out of it - I already bought a replacement.

    KS-16S - Handle not staying locked

    You'll have to open it eventually, maybe for a flat or to replace the tire (mine's getting close to being worn out). But there is a guide: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4OJrjRwkZroaTh1VVlwQVJRc3lSOEhOU2hjdUZrSGZQOGtn It's not too hard, I had to do it as soon as I got it because Kingsong had to ship my wheel to me without the batteries installed.

    KS-16S - Handle not staying locked

    I think the handle eventually wears out and needs to be replaced. On mine, I opened it and then I could not get it to go back down. Was really inconvenient. I disassembled the entire handle assembly and found that there is a plastic lock at the bottom that had broken, meaning that it would not retract the locking mechanism. I removed it as a temporary measure - now my handle is the same as yours. One side locks and one side does not. I ordered a replacement handle for it. For now it is fine though, although only one side locks it doesn't affect my ability to carry the wheel. And at least it is not stuck open, which is much worse.

    Joining the club

    That's unfortunate, in my opinion. I've had several people learn to ride the wheel in under an hour, many as fast as 15 minutes. My friends 8 year old daughter can rip around all day on my KS16. I feel this mode of transport could use more publicity, and discouraging people from trying doesn't help. Might be better to be honest and say that you don't want inexperienced people damaging your wheel. They are expensive, and I'm sure they'd understand.
