  1. Wow this is a big wheel in every respect. The batteries alone weigh 13.5kg (30 lbs)
  2. But I have to admit their suspension compromise is clever (or maybe just cheap and simple?). The entire shell is suspended like on the S18, but the build is more straightforward like on the V11. I wonder if any of these three options will turn out to be superior, or if it doesn't really matter.
  3. I hope GW realize it isn't the MSX Frankenstein look that made it popular. All their big/new wheels look like msupers now?
  4. Some posts about the Gotway suspension have been moved:
  5. New @EcoDrift article with updates on the S18 (and V11): https://www.translatetheweb.com/?from=ru&to=en&dl=de&ref=trb&a=https%3A%2F%2Fecodrift.ru%2F2020%2F06%2F29%2Fnovosti-o-monokolesah-s-podveskoj-muki-ozhidaniya%2F Some small improvements on the S18.
  6. New @EcoDrift article shows the latest state of the V11 (and S18). Not sure if all of this is already known here, but it's a good overview of the improvements they made. https://www.translatetheweb.com/?from=ru&to=en&dl=de&ref=trb&a=https%3A%2F%2Fecodrift.ru%2F2020%2F06%2F29%2Fnovosti-o-monokolesah-s-podveskoj-muki-ozhidaniya%2F
  7. This @EcoDrift article says that Gotway is testing their suspension prototype. Looks like the setup that Inmotion is using (suspension in the pedal columns). https://www.translatetheweb.com/?from=ru&to=en&dl=de&ref=trb&a=https%3A%2F%2Fecodrift.ru%2F2020%2F06%2F29%2Fnovosti-o-monokolesah-s-podveskoj-muki-ozhidaniya%2F
  8. Guys please make sure the discussion doesn't get too heated
  9. Done (since you asked). In principle there is nothing wrong with starting a topic wherever. It may also get more eyeballs in the General Discussion forum (after all, who checks the tire forum?) and can later be moved to a place where it is easier to find. So nobody think any tire topic must be in the tire forum. It's up to you guys
  10. Thanks for the input/concern We mods had this discussion a few months ago. It's old but may be important information to some, especially if there are some questionable charge doctor websites (?). Nobody likes pinned posts, but as a compromise we decided to wait until a new post is pinned and then this one probably gets unpinned (because who likes pinned posts!). So when the next big disaster strikes when a manufacturer does something really stupid, you might get your wish. Unless people think we should keep it there for longer.
  11. Isn't that really stupid? Like the old-timey BMSes that simply switched off if the power draw was too high before manufacturers figured out that's a bad thing for EUCs? It's not like the mosfets insta-explode as soon as that number is reached.
  12. The EUC may have been stopped in the spot but was still righting itself, and so the motor/tire was still moving? Or maybe you picked it up and tilted it and before the button was pressed down enough to activate, the wheel had already spun up beyond the threshold? Anyways, whatever the reason, I don't see any issue here. Your V8F seems to behave exactly as expected You certainly don't have to worry about any wear if it merely spins up in the air, that is literally nothing compared to just riding it. (Btw "wheel" here means the entire electric unicycle, not just some part of it, if that was confusing.)
  13. EcoDrift offers their own, extra waterproofing. I wouldn't try that with a stock MSP. Wheels are more waterproof in reality than one thinks, but of course without a systematic, guaranteed approach it's a lottery and you can never be sure what you can or shouldn't do in regards to water and rain.
  14. Their next wheel will be called "Patton", you heard it from me first. No, I don't have any insider information. It's just obvious (well, to me at least)
