    Good story/info! The speed hack is what did you in. And ignoring tiltback which essentially is a speed hack, too. Wheel didn't get stronger, you just rode inside the safety margin and then finally outside of it Good you have only slight injuries. The cost of your jacket (and pants?) is the price of no gear. And the cost of the V8 repair is the price of overspeed/hack. Some people only learn the hard way. Me too. Ruined so many clothes in one stupid fall, now I'm wearing knee guards. But as long as one learns, it's ok, such is life Maybe also this is the opportunity for you to totally need a faster wheel... you know, for safety!

    New riders and wheel's "learner speed limit"

    I'd rather have a helmet that is a tiny bit too loose than one that is a tiny bit too tight. My first ride with my helmet, it felt tight but ok in the beginning but hurt after 1 hour or two. Now with the thinner inserts, it feels borderline a bit loose compared to the thicker inserts, but doesn't hurt (well, you feel it a tiny bit after 2 hours of riding but no pain). But I have very limited experience so not sure how correct that is and if long term anything changes

    First Impressions & Photos of the KS18XL

    Making the 18XL numbers limited and the thing not available by default is moronic. That they didn't plan for the obvious, a bigger battery variant, in the initial design, is moronic. Now they have to manually file off plastic side panels every time or what? Maybe the deciders at KS will finally change their minds about that (and bigger batteries in general) when Western sales of the 18XL exceed the 18L (my prediction: 2:1 from now on, at least if they produce enough stock). The only reason to buy the L other than the rather few people who look at weight is the high price anyways, the L is very expensive already so people might go msX instead of 18XL for a 1600Wh wheel. If the 18XL had the msX price (over 250,- difference here in Europe!), I couldn't see many people buying the L over the XL. And the pedals. They had to be essentially forced to make bigger pedals, and I'm sure nearly every Western dealer will order wheels with these pedals only from now on. Or even the fact that they made the 18L, they had to be asked like a million times before they gave in... Why are such things so hard to understand for manufacturers? Or what are we not getting? Oh well... -- By the way, what happened to the nice colors for the 18L? They showed so many pretty renders and ended up with the usual boring black or white. Purple is sexy

    Haha. Mofa, ebike, wieso soll ein Bundesverkehrsminister auch den Unterschied kennen? Ist ja schließlich kein Auto, sowas nutzen nur irgendwelche komischen Randgruppen Passend zum Thema, wieviel man in Deutschland von nicht-Autofahrern hält: http://www.spiegel.de/auto/fahrkultur/radwege-an-diesen-kuriosen-strecken-verzweifeln-radler-a-1224496.html Ich schlage vor, als Teil der Möglichkeit mal in die Offensive zu gehen, ein Verbot von SUVs zu fordern. "Irrsinnige Umweltmonster", "2-Tonnen-Mordvehikel", "Hausfrauenpanzer", "Rüstungswettlauf auf deutschen Strassen", usw. Angriff ist die beste Verteidigung.

    New riders and wheel's "learner speed limit"

    Physical store is a good idea. Unless you buy one of the expensive helmets with switchable inserts, getting the right size can be tricky or even impossible. 80% of people here will choose between M and L, so what if your head is in between? At least that's the experience I made. My helmet in L was too tight in some spots and hurt, without the thinner inserts there would be no sizing that fits me.

    Guter Artikel. Letzter Satz (Zitat Verkehrsminister Scheuer): Was soll so ein armseliges Neidargument? "Wir haben Scheiss-Restriktionen, also sollen bitte auch alle Anderen sinnfreie Einschränkungen haben! *heul*". Leider denken viele Leute wirklich so. Sieht man ja jedesmal, wenn über Mindestlohn diskutiert wird. "Dann würden die ja fast soviel wie ich verdienen! Das geht ja gar nicht..." (anstatt mal zu überlegen, ob man selber besser bezahlt sein sollte). Gut zu wissen auf welches Klientel der abzielt. Vielleicht sollten wir es dem gleichtun. "Uns werden die Kleinfahrzeuge verboten damit die Politiker weiter von Betrugsdiesel verkaufenden Autoherstellern Geldkoffer bekommen!" "Verbote und Einschränkungen. Hauptsache jeder muss am Ende doch ein Auto haben. Dann kriegt der Sohnemann vom Scheuer ein schönes Pöstchen in der Autoindustrie!" Usw.

    Tethering your wheel to your leg

    The leash idea is insane. It has zero benefits. Nobody has ever been hit by a riderless wheel. And it is basically asking to make a nasty fall of any harmless runoff and a catastrophic injury of every more serious fall.

    Inmotion V8 or v10?

    @adampj asked Gearbest and they confirmed all their V10 are fixed (the new battery housing and better sealing).

    Inmotion V8 or v10?

    No question: V10. Who wants a 2+ year old wheel that can barely go 30 if you can have a new one that can go 40, and has more battery (= range and safety)? Also: @Obsidian There are current Gearbest offers, V5F 300€, V8 630€, V10 700€. Check the Commercial Advertisement and Deals forum.

    Brand new Z10 not charging

    2 years ago (or whenever) Ninebot suddenly and without warning stopped selling wheels and replacement parts for existing wheels!!! to Ian and other dealers. Apparently trying to get into direct sales or whatever stupid idea they had. This situation reminded me of that. I edited my other post, it was indeed easy to misread.

    Ninebot z10 creeping forward

    In the future after the apocalypse, when they try to find out how a nest of genetically manipulated, escaped from a lab Chinese brain-parasitic electric Supercockroaches made its way to NZ, this thread is where they'll end up @Alex_from_NZ might already be zombified for all we know!

    Brand new Z10 not charging

    Holy shit, sounds like Ninebot fucking over Ian suddenly back in the day. Either they don't care for the long term or are trying to kill third party sellers (once again?). Why is every manufacturer so moronic/stubborn in some regard? @Emmanuel Schalit This is very frustrating for you, but you're in good hands.

    Got my Z10, but I need your help.

    A clear case of "it's your sellers job to fix this". It behaves like a loose board, though it's hard to see how the board could even be loose, the way the Z10 is built. Or maybe some hall sensor error? Maybe it's a consequence of condensation inside the wheel. How cold was it overnight? But that's all speculation. Let your seller replace it. As you seem to have bought from ewheels, no problem, other than the wait time with no wheel.
