  1. Few days ago the power button on my V5F+ started misbehaving. At first my light would switch on and off while riding, then I had to hold the button for longer than usual to turn the wheel on/off and finally it wouldn't turn on or off at all. Anyone had this problem? Could it be just a button or the problem is in the control board? At the same time, while trying to diagnose the wheel in my garage, I was stupid enough to leave the charger on the roof of my car and forgot about it. Charger ended up in pieces, falling off the roof of my car while driving Could anyone please suggest where to buy spare charger for V5 in Europe?

    Inmotion V10 fire.

    This is very, very bad Glad that no one was harmed. Inmotion should address this very clearly and openly ! After the first fire incident there should have been mandatory recall and replacement of all affected wheel batches, not just some optional "half-fix". This just proves that all wheels before being released to the market should have minimal appropriate IP rating / testing.

    Hello from Croatia

    Same thing here, but people are using many kinds of other personal electric vehicles (scooters, skateboards, e-bikes) around the "big" city, so EUC is probably not sticking out that much. I also thought about getting ankle guards while learning (my ankles were dark-blue in the beginning from multiple hits and bruises), but in the end solved it by simply wearing sport socks with additional pair stuffed inside them around the inner ankles. Later with more practice you just simply stop hitting the ankles with the wheel / pedals. But as other people mentioned above - wrist guards, knee guards and helmet, are necessary equipment on the wheel. Don't learn that the hard way as most of us did .

    Hello from Croatia

    Hi Patuljasta, Nice to se someone else from our country here, especially a lady . Only once I met someone else riding the wheel here and that guy was from Argentina. Congratulations on learning to ride in such a short time, most of us needed days or even weeks to get the grip of the wheel. As steve454 suggested, for night riding get a good Li-Ion powered flashlight or bicycle light (at least 600+ lumen), which you can mount on the handle like this: Wish you lots of fun riding and pozdrav iz Zagreba

    Inmotion V8 mods - foot pads and stand bumper

    V5 has these screw holes on the shell for mounting mudguard or some other accessories, are these also present on V10? These could also be used for mounting a nice stand.

    New Inmotion V10 / V10F

    I guess this is the tear down video @Jeffrey Scott Will was talking about and indeed there is a fan inside:

    Have you though of getting an Ebike instead?

    Owning both EUC and Bosch powered e-bike, I would say they are complementary rather then opposed. EUC is much more practical for strolling around the city - no theft concerns, smaller, portable, can take it inside the stores, less intrusive if you have to use sidewalk.... E-bike on the other hand is certainly more comfortable and capable especially for long off road rides, inherently far safer due to two wheels, easily climbs any curb, if you want you can get as much exercise on it as you like through choosing assist level, but at least in my city you simply can't safely leave it anywhere (or any other valuable bike).

    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    Question is would such tire even fit, because Inmotion wheels usually have very little space between tire and the casing. On V8 some far less knobby tires rubbed the casing when mounted.

    How about stopping power Marty? I mean how fast V10F can stop from certain speed compared to Tesla and other similar wheels?

    That is also an interesting option. Unfortunately it seems that I will wait for new wheels (KS 18L, NB One Z and Inmotion V10) to get properly released and tested / reviewed and then decide. Still far too many unknowns.

    Oh man... I will end up buying Gotway !

    Was it uncontrollable spin like that for 1-2 seconds, or just a twitch?

    My Inmotion V10F Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    I seriously doubt that, since older Inmotion wheels don't behave like that. My V5 tumbled hundreds of times in all possible ways and NEVER had anything remotely similar to that spin @Marty Backe had with V10. When the wheel falls, tumbles or is angled beyond certain degree - it's "dead". Let's hope this is just an issue with this pre-production wheel - whether the cause is in hardware or early firmware.

    Buuuuu Well that is a shame. I really looked forward to your full review before pulling the trigger on V10F as an upgrade to my V5F+. Anyway again thank you for the stress test videos and time and effort Marty!
