    E-bike not working out...

    Hi @TremF, I understand your limitations, I myself am limited physically due to my handicap (multiple sclerosis) making me unable to walk for long or do any physical activity, I've been through most transportation solutions, pedal assist electric bikes, electric unicycles, electric scooter, segway... For now, I would put a full E-bike on top of the list if you have physical limitations, I mean with a throttle, fully suspended, with a special seat, I think it would be the most appropriate for your situation regarding your limitations, even more so than EUC even though they might be illegal, but they are hard to recognize from a regular E-bike plus I think the police would be tolerant. But for your arms I don't know, I would't go for a powerful e-scooter, because all of the acceleration force goes through your armes. I'm sorry I don't have any real solutions to offer.. @Hunka Hunka Burning Love electric scooters like the dualtron are theoritcally illegal, but the police & people here don't care.

    The Photo Thread

    Hi guys, Here are a few pics from todays trip in the moutains, over 800m climb overall, and a 55km ride, very fun ! 450km total with the DT ultra for now, I'm starting to really enjoy this machine, it's definitely meant for moutain riding (road & offroad), capable of incredible +75kph speeds climbing on steep roads, the torque is insane ! I would never bring an EUC on such long trips (overheating) in the moutains, but the DT is a champ !

    Gotway Msuper V3 "T" 1600Wh

    Hi guys !! I just wanted to talk about the new MS3T 84V 1600Wh which has the mechanics & motor of the Tesla, 1900W. It's the same generation as the ACM2 of @Marty Backe. It is not my EUC but my friends. Let me just way....WOW this EUC is IMPRESSIVE !!! I have tested the MS3 67V 820Wh & the MS3s+ 84V 1600Wh, man it is a different wheel ! First thing, the MS3T is silent, much more than the Tesla itself, at standstill there is absolutely no noise, when you move at 30kph their is a slight noise but it's almost inaudible. It is a stealth EUC Regarding it's handling, it's more stable than the original MS3, it has much more power, and it is more stable but also more reactive ! The power that comes through is linear and gives a feeling of endless power, unlike on the original MS3. The algorithm is not "tesla like" it's hard, maybe not as hard (due to the wheel diameter imo), for me it's perfect. The manoevrability is better than on the original MS3, not as good as on the Tesla, but still a very agile wheel, and the height of the pedals is good so they don't get scratched as often. Regarding the speed, I reached 54kph (real speed), no beeping ! This EUC is insanely fast !! When I lift it up, it cuts off at 74kph (compared to the 59kph Tesla cut off) I think it's the fastest production EUC. Overall I like it more than the Tesla and the ACMs+, If the weight was a little lower, I would say this is my favorite EUC, the most impressive part is the silence, even the older MCM2s was louder than this EUC.. Have you guys tried it yet ??? From left to right : DT Ultra, MS3T, GT16, ACMs+, Segway I2

    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    A reminder to all EUC riders to be safe, be aware of the performances of your EUC, and consider wearing protections ! The gotway Tesla seems to be quite a solid unit considering how hard it crashed.

    The Photo Thread

    Hi guys, moutain is great with electric scooters, I think that moutain is EUCs week spot (overheathing..), but no problemo for the dualtron ultra, it climbs nearly everything, 46km with a hell lot of climbing, 1h30min riding, 52% battery left, top speed 102kph ! Enjoying the nice sunny weather @yourtoys7 It's from aliexpress, maybe I'll do a review of the dualtron ultra, but I am not really an experienced rider so I need to ride it more before thinking of a review

    Hi guys, the weather was sunny (but cold), I grabed the Dualtron Ultra for a 30km city ride

    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    Hi guys, here is a short video for the promotion of our next scheduled group ride in the east of France
  11. @meepmeepmayer This 1.6Kwh ACM is still working good today in the hands of someone else (sold), it's around 16 000km today. I hope it'll last another 15 000km I would be very curious to see a +100 000km EUC, however I think only the +1.6Kwh EUC can do it, because considering 1000 charge cycles, a 1.6Kwh EUC would last about 100 000km. The +20 000km MS3 of @Hansolo had the motor bearings changed. @Jason McNeil Could you put a prize on the first rider to each 30 000km ? That's more reasonable even though I think not that easy to achieve I think the top mileage out there is somewhere between 20 000km & 25 000km

    KS 18S Heavy back and forth oscillation

    Hi, I have experienced this a few times on the Gotway Monster unfortunately.... I also had another failure last week, the Monster is now unusable I can't say for sure what it is, but I can say the cold is not the issue, I think it's a bug in the firmware of the motherboard. Ask @Marty Backe he has a KS18S I think he never experienced such an issue but maybe he knows about someone who did ?

    The Monster tried to kill me !

    Hi Marty thank you for your answer, the bump was really little, I'll try to take a picture of it this afternoon. I really don't think it's a normal behavior because I've passed on this bump a few times with the ACM, Monster, V8 and they never failed befored, could be the yesterdays temperature (-5°C). It seemed to be an oscillation to me but with very wide aplitude. Not sure if this can happen to any EUC board I hope not. The production date of the Monster is December 2016 but the motherboard was changed in July 2017. I was not a serious bump, I'll try to take a picture to show you guys, I always slow down before major bumps & cracks. This is certainly not a normal behavior, I had a Tesla & it never had this symptom even if I was hard on it.
  15. Hi guys, I'm just back from a little ride with the Gotway Monster, everything was fine, I was cruising at around 30kph, I slowed down when going through the green pedestrian light on the bike lane, but at the moment the Monster rolled on a little bumb, it started to wobble severly back & forth, I fell on my my knee, right hand & shoulder, I still feel the pain a little. Fortunately I was not too badly injured, I just killed my phone protection and cracked the shell of the Monster. I still can't understand why it behaved like that ? @Marty Backe you experienced the same issue with your MS3 didn't you ?
