  1. 18S is my go-to wheel! Favorite wheel I have and it would be the last wheel I would get rid of. I don't think I'll buy another one I can't sit on. Sitting, even if briefly, gives the feet a nice break and makes my rides so much more enjoyable; extends the range I want to ride several fold as well. I'm so much more stable on it while seated at high speeds (not going to get the death wobble). Get one; I think you'll be very happy with it!
  2. Speed/power is an important consideration, but remember you can also outgrow your battery capacity as well. Your situation may be different but I'm on my 5th wheel and have progressively "outgrown" the battery capacity of each wheel. Just something else to consider besides top speed. Good luck.
  3. I can't promise I could make it, but I'd sure like to try! (As I invite myself!) Sounds like fun! (KS18S-1680 wh)
  4. I charge my KS18S frequently with a cycle satiator at 5A and have never had an issue. One of the KS reps checked with engineering on max charge rate and told me 5A was max for the 18S. I can't imagine them going backwards on the KS18L/XL.
  5. Back up and running! @Flora Yuan and @US69 got me fixed up. You have to get another engineering app that will allow you to install the firmware by wheel model rather than allowing the app to select it automatically. In this case the app installed once and kept on wanting to install 16S 1.08 onto my 18S wheel. I didn't loose any settings or mileages. Thanks everyone!
  6. Just noticed the “firmware model” is KS-16S....the wheel is a 18S.
  7. Got a prompt to update firmware, did so no issues. Restarted and wheel just beeps rapidly and non-stop after the update... firmware took...wheel shuts off sometimes after 10-15 seconds other times stays beeping like this. I do get the following message in the app... Any ideas? Thanks, Adrian
  8. And by far the longest range!!!! LOL
  9. Downtown fun! Nice edit from one of our skateboarders (Brice Luppi).
  10. I sent you a facebook message. I'm part of the Houston EWheelers. Let me know what you're looking for. If you can ride already you probably want something different than if you're learning to ride.
  11. What did you clean and how? Mine is making a similar noise. Was it dirt or trash around the axel?
  12. This Mod will allow you access to get into the wheel without having to remove pads completely thereby ruining their stickiness. I used a .45 caliber casing to hammer perfect little holes into the pads where the access screws are. Seeing the screws is a slight cosmetic change but one that doesn't bother me one bit. This is a Kingsong KS18S and I've had the same issue with other KS wheels. I know KS covers their screws with the pads. I can't speak to other manufacturers. IMHO the pads should be manufactured with holes in them or the mod done the first time the pad is installed. We WILL have to get into the wheel at some point for one reason or another. Cheers!
  13. How do experienced riders gain the knowledge of what their wheels are capable of? I’d assume it’s by riding enough to have a pretty good idea of what isn’t going to give an alarm, and respecting that alarm. They have to learn by listening to the alarms, right?
