    Rehab1´s accident(s)

    Congratulations!
  2. The proposed tariffs are not yet being implemented and will likely be revised in large measure. So far it is just a threat exchange.

    First proper fall

    Indeed. It is so easy to get complacent on these wheels.

    First proper fall

    You did not mention what you were wearing on your hands/wrists. What do you wear to protect the hands, and did it work as well as you wanted?

    Well done wearing the right gear! Really saved you.

    What's the value of an old V5F?

    Enjoy it!

    Good info. As others said, the battery is a large part of the cost and of the performance capabilities as well.

    What's the value of an old V5F?

    Depends very much on what your use profile will be. Are you planning on using the wheel for short rides or long rides? Long rides demand large batteries. Are you above average weight? Go for a larger battery. Do you want to go as fast as possible? The larger battery V5F is faster than the V5. The main risk with a used wheel IMHO is not really being able to verify the condition of the batteries and the the way they have been treated. If the battery was maintained with care, not stored at full charge for months, etc. you are likely OK to buy used. There is no way to know unless you ask and trust the answers.

    https://solowheel.com/products/solowheel-glide-2 The glide 2 lite from solowheel is the same at the V5. New it is $400. I would not pay more than $150 for a used V5. The glide 2 is the same as the inmotion V5+

    Flat tires

    Tire liners are definitely a benefit. Combined with puncture sealant you are orders of magnitude less likely to get stranded due to a flat compared to going without.

    Paging Dr. Rehab1, another rider down!

    That vest would work, but it needs to be in a special jacket or suit, costs 1000 dollars and every little tumble would cost $150 to reset the system. Not practical. A helite vest with a teather is a better option, but at our EUC speeds, it is really not needed, just pads to protect the corners of the body, helmet and gloves. Extreme EUC, a member here, does it right.

    Great point.

    My ACM2 Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    That is a software bug/software design limitation that needs to be worked around. I had the same confusion when I first received my Gotway Msuper. The percentage charge is correct, but the voltage is off. I recommend using a charge doctor for charging so that you can see actual voltages and to also allow for storage charging.
