    My KS18XL Trials, Tribulations, and Failures

    It was Kingsong that inspired me to buy power tools. 30 screws attaching the outershells to the body; that's a whole Lotta screws.

    I dread having to change a tire on an EUC, but I bought a new patch kit yesterday.

    Oh, most definitely when you got the whole stormtrooper getup on. That looks crazy futuristic.

    very funny. I rode past some kids the other day, and they cried out "the future is here."

    Why are ther so few Female riders?

    That's because they don't ride more than 5mph

    @who_the. She would really walk up to a grown-ass man besides you and swing on him? She really is quite the risk taker, and you must be quite the diplomat .

    True. You probably sound like Sam Neil. I'm Sure the ladies love that
  10. Well now you know. Sorry, you had to have such a negative experience. But. Yes. A big guy like you should be riding a big wheel; KS18XL and MSX. These two wheel's can take everything that 6'5", 250lbs, size 13 shoes can dish out 😉👍

    Cool. Dig the sweater. Didn't know that there were Washington Redskins fans in Europe. 👍
  12. I wonder if KS has considered eliminating metal parts from the trolley bars. I keep the lift sensor off. The great handle position allows me to trolley with the wheel off. This has prevented me from having any issues with trolleying the wheel, and the static induced shutdowns that many feel are the cause.

    There are not more women riders because all the males who currently ride are ugly; except me. 👍
  14. Since A Size 13 shoe and 150lbs don't seem to match up very well, I sense that you must be a man of s,ubstantial physical stature. If this is true that tiny little V8 thingy might just not be enough to support a large guy who wants to push the wheel. Still there should be some warning from the wheel. If your warnings are set, repeated Sudden cutouts sounds like malfunction; not misuse. I am about 6' 1", 220lbs. I would feel quite unsafe pushing a V8 outside of a little light riding and a little tricking in my front yard . I feel much safer on a wheel with an abundance of reserve power and lots of range.
  15. Very nice. Even though I did not understand the Polish, I understood the portions regarding the tensioning of the lift sensor.
  16. LOCATION: Washington, DC, USA DATE: Sunday 3/10/2019 TIME: 12 pm Start  WEATHER: Sunny, warm, windy by the river DISTANCE TRAVELED: 50 miles WHICH WHEEL OR MAIN WHEEL USED: Lutalo -KS18XL; Kachi - KS18L; Jeff - Inmotion V8, @Yanex87 - KS18L; @edwin_rm - GW Monster. WHO WAS WITH ME: See above BEST FEATURE OF THE RIDE: Weather was beautiful. Miles upon miles of beautiful paved trail carving through dense natural forest alongside Sligo creek, and vast swaths of swamps and marshes along the bank of the Anacostia River; an escape from DC without having to physically leave DC. WORST FEATURE OF THE RIDE: 1. Headwinds 2. Flooding on portions of the trail. DC was fresh off heavy rains. WORST MEMORY/EXPERIENCE: The 18L ran out of range about two miles from our destination on the return trip. Had to return with the car to pick my son where the wheel dumped him RECOMMENDATIONS/WARNINGS FOR RIDERS: Check your tire pressure. Buy a fast charger. My tire pressure was very low; 25 psi when I checked. I endured the entire ride with this low pressure. A more challenging surface would have damaged my rim. Plus, Although I made the entire 50 mile trip, my range suffered greatly because of the low pressure. By the time I arrived home my wheel was warning me about the battery.

    Well there's a strong opinion
  18. Must upgrade for a "Smoother" ride

    First 40+ km/h wipe-out

    Glad that you are okay man. You are pushing yourself, and that's good, but it also introduces more risk; especially at night. I don't have any data on how inattention rates as a cause of mishaps, but I would imagine it's right up there. My inattention was certainly responsible for the faceplant I took yesterday. I am strolling along on my XL on an unusually nice day picking up a trail that cuts through a school yard. Well, the mini jocks were outside for ⚽ practice. I decide to use the KS app to check my ride stats. I decided that it wasn't necessary to stop first to check the app so I kept strolling along the trail past the kiddies while checking the app. Well, a ⚽ rolls into my path. I see it at the instant my tire is about to make contact. There was no time to react. The Kenda contacts the ball. The ball stops. The XL stops. I keep going . I was very fortunate that the wheel and I landed on the grass. I sustained no injuries and the wheel didn't even get a scratch. After all the kiddies ran over to check on me; understandable, but only heightened the embarrassment of the entire situation, I assured them that I was okay jumped back on the XL and continued on my ride. Of course, after the collision with the ⚽ I was on high alert. My fall must have looked a lot nastier than it actually was because one of the mini jocks took charge of the situation screaming out as she made her way toward me; "someone call 911!"
  20. I was thinking " or bust your ass." But. Yeah. Lip works too.
  21. That's what I always say; 18" or bust.
