    My Z10 Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    Ah, I see. Very funny. There aren't enough local riders around here to make that a worry for me

    Thanks. I definitely don't see 'ninebot'. Maybe when @houseofjob took the wheel apart the Bluetooth module was affected? Waiting to hear if he tested it after putting the wheel back together. BTW, usually you can "forget" a particular device and then the phone won't auto-connect.

    GW TESLA + APPS

    Yeah, pretty sure no wheel can achieve those speeds reliably. Keep in mind that most Gotway wheels (including the Tesla) are optimistic by about 10%. So you were probably going closer to 28-mph. This is all easily verifiable by using a GPS tracker app on your phone. WheelLog can be configured to write to a Log File that you can view after the fact. Otherwise it loses all information between sessions.

    @houseofjob, I can see N30TC1813T0024, with multiple devices. But that's not the sound module. No Ninebot .... I can't see any app settings to enable the Bluetooth sound. You don't recall having to do anything special? Did you test the functionality after you took the wheel apart and put it back together?

    Turns out I've been riding with Brake Assist on. So it'll be even worse if I turn it off I'll experiment more.

    Had to wait until I got home to see your designs. Brilliant as usual, but I think the 2nd one is a bit harsh

    I actually do ride across grassy fields. But to be honest it can be very treacherous. The grass hides all kinds of things that you don't want to ride over or into. Can be slippery too. But I do have a hilly grass field that I'll take the wheel to and see how it handles relative to all the other wheels that I've ridden there. It might not be a cow pasture, but it's what I have.

    Nice report. Kind of disappointed that you left us hanging. Which 18L rides better, the black or white version?

    New toy, MCM5 experience...

    The Mten3 has more torque than any wheel on the planet.

    Must learn to get away from hugging wheels. Leave that for other activities I know some people (maybe everybody) is padding up their MCM5's, but it's totally unnecessary IMHO.

    It's difficult for me to preface all my commentary, but please remember that I have lots of wheels. I have two 1600wh wheels and a 2400wh wheel. And a 1300wh wheel. So my long distance riding is covered. The Z10 fits the middle ground and looks to be able to take me on many typical rides. If I was beginning my EUC journey, and only had a ~800wh wheel like I originally did, I'd be going for the MSX. I remember at the time I really wanted to journey over that hill in the distance, and was always bummed when I had to turn around. There were no bigger wheels at the time. Then the 2400wh Monster came out. Blew my mind. Followed by more battery behemoths. We have rich choices now. So that's why the ~1000wh Z10 doesn't bother me. Same reason I bought the Tesla BTW.
