    Witch wheel to buy for about 1100euro

    another geat wheel, with a large battery and tons of torque due to the relatively large motor to small overall and tire size.. i would only be wary about a 14" wheel for your size but tbh i dont think with the 14S it would be a problem.. its a very popular wheel im sure you can see tons of reviews on it and if youre willing to compromise the 5 kmph for a more portable wheel plus its cheaper, then its definitely worth looking into

    sure, if you wanted to go past the manufacturer firmware limit and risk a cut out, especially with that tiny ass battery.. and i dont know why you use quotes for superior motor as last i checked 50% more wattage is substantial
  3. and in my humble opinion.. a 550 USD difference between the V3S+ and the X is not justifiable..
  4. yea theyre good to have but still the size difference and appearance would make me choose the v3s+, however that pedal height makes my mouth water haha.. i dont scrape my pedals but thats because i know very well exactly where they are, if i had higher ones i would love to make use of them lol.. i would have to try the X out myself, i could get over the fact that i hate the looks if i loved the performance and yea, the v3 is by no means a good looking wheel, in fact i really dont like the look of any gotway wheels besides the acm which is nothing special but not bad like the rest of them.. however, the specs speak for themselves on gotways.. but i have no idea where you got 1600 from because even the cheapest one on aliexpress, which are way cheaper than any from north american sellers, is 1900 USD....

    How to lock a KingSong 16s (pedal lock)

    well then you have nothing to worry about the cable lock will work great i like my ks too much to ever let anyone ride it.. my starter wheel, the ninebot one is what i use to let people test out,, yea i seriously doubt anyone is going to for one be walking around with cable cutters and steal it in plain sight.. if you left it outside in a secluded area overnight thatd be worrisome but obviously not in front of a wal mart or grocery store haha.. this is a great idea

    agreed, however after checking the European sites I'm baffled at the price difference compared to local Canadian and US shops that offer similar warranty, repairs etc.. just wondering why it's more, im sure it's out of their control however and I'm not blaming them, though with the new US tariffs I suspect the prices will raise there too very soon.. heres where i got mine from.. not sure how much shipping is to you but it cant be that outrageous,, only 1050 euro https://freemotionshop.com/product/kingsong-ks-16s-840wh-black-matte/

    1600 euros??? what a rip off lol why so much... and I just realised that the link for speedy feet I posted is in gbp not euros so more expensive than I thought >.> though the eBay one I think is only 1200 euro give or take and it's from China so you can just tell them to fudge the declaration lol though they usually do it either way.. I would just be wary about the v10 to make absolutely sure it has been sent back or the seller has done the waterproofing upgrades because that will lead to major problems, but I think for something portable to take on transit and such it's quite tall and would be awkward.. I'm just average height though so it may be different for someone larger.. then again if you get the v10f just avoid the bus and ride all the way xD I got my first euc around 18 months ago and haven't taken a bus since

    im thinkt he wants a wheel that is more transportable relatively.. besides the chaos of the v10 so probable delays, and if not, probable problems with the wheel right now, and the big price difference of the 18l compared to the 16s, they are not nearly as portable.. v8 is more portable true, but the slight size difference nowhere near makes up for the far superior motor and battery of the 16s.. of course, thats just my opinion

    one vote for 16s.. for what it packs it is amazingly small and lightweight and the 35 speed is just right imo.. it is ridiculously easy to trolley around.. but i do strongly advise against anything lower than the 840 wh battery, you will soon regret it in more ways than one trust me.. and the v8 is okay, fine for a short commute but these wheels are fun as hell and soon youll want to go everywhere on it, and the measly 480 wh battery will be sure to disappoint, not to mention 30 kph i feel is just a tad too sow if you only plan to have one wheel, and with that puny battery the top speed will not stay 30 for long ps. if you hunt around quite a bit you should be able to find a 16s 840 wh for 1100 euro.. if not just slightly over but i can guarantee youll be wishing you did if you get the smaller capacity

    imho if youre serious about euc's you should have at least two.. i have five but that may seem like overkill to most, though i do know of a few people who have more lol.. they all excel at different things, and yes if you get used to it the tesla can be a good all rounder.. though for me personally the best all around wheel and especially if you live in the city, is the KS16S.. i always go for it first and in the city you will find 95% of the time the speed limit of 35 kph is quite enough.. then again thats why i have multiple wheels because though not as comfortable as the KS or as portable as the v5f, i do love bombing around bike trails and such at 45 kph and going on 100 km trips.. different wheels for different occasions.. though, gun to my head.. i would likely choose the ACM2 over all else as that 1600 wh range and 45+ top speed i dont think i could give up after having them lol

    Vans for EUC riding?

    i only ever wear sneakers.. and they are quite a loose fit to boot.. my feet do slide around which can be annoying so i tried some vans.. my brothers and they were definitely i feel more suitable as my toes usually curl around the front of the pedal and can cramp up sometimes.. with the rigid, flat soles of vans i cant see that happening.. however it was so foreign to me that i switched back to my sneakers as im just too used to them to want to switch lol

    Adding 16S1P to my ACM 820Wh -> 990Wh !

    i can never understand why gotway doesnt fully utilize the space inside of their eucs.. i mean, i know why because theyre chintzy af.. but other manufactures either use up as much space as possible, or make the unit smaller.. gotway seems to love to re use designs instead, not that i am not a huge fan just sayin. thats a great upgrade

    congrats, it is a fantastic all around wheel.. a great ride for a speed demon haha afaik the third fastest on the market.. my advice to you, being a previous owner of one.. invest in some sort of shin guards or knee high socks or something lol.. it is for its capacity a good size, but overall more boxy than most and murder on your shins when getting used to it.. idk of any thread just make sure to watch some videos on the app and how to set the limits before you ride, as it will have no qualms about going above its max speed and tossing you off.. i love speedy feets youtube channel he has great reviews on almost every euc available https://www.youtube.com/user/SpeedyFeetUK
