  1. Show me the man and I'll show you the crime. I'm not doing anything illegal to my knowledge anyways. Now are there some embarrassing, potentially career harming messages on my phone? Maybe. People have become way to flippant about privacy. Once it's gone, it's hard to claw back.
  2. Congrats on learning on what I consider to be one of the hardest wheels to learn on, the other being the Luffy which is the much cheaper, lower powered version of the Mten3. I learned on the Luffy and I almost gave up. In retrospect, the short height of it and the inability to securely brace it against your legs made learning to ride so much more difficult.
  3. I’m gonna have to disagree on that. Based on what I’ve read, this is a process issue and as a result, the issue will be systemic across most Nikolas.
  4. I don’t like speedyfeets position on the whole MOSFET issue. He didn’t even mention the issue in his video and based on his comments he will only worry about it if it effects him personally. I think it’s an irresponsible stance to have if you are going to make a review people are relying on for purchasing decisions.
  5. @Flyboy10 Thanks for making another great video. Fun ride, great workout. Hope that's scabbing over nicely.
  6. Heh, that could very well be why I don't think tilt-backs are a big deal then. I get regular tilt backs all the time due to riding the beep, those aren't a big deal. I get what I perceive are violent ones when I accelerate too aggressively. What happens in these cases is that the pedal dips forward more than usual and rotates back in a short amount of time, less than half a second. Come to think of it, it's probably because I ride in intermediate mode because I like some squishiness when I brake.
  7. Go check out facebook. I met a dude from Hillcrest who was on an EUC and he says he rides with the SD onewheel group all the time.
  8. Yep - I don't gun it when I'm going top speed. It happens to me at low speeds when I lean forward to accelerate to catch up to someone, also, the acceleration part is pretty fun. I always have a full face helmet on and wrist guards at a minimum. I think I'm a safe/conservative rider, typically. I just need a little more than what the 16S can give now.
  9. I've experienced the violent tilt back many times. For me, the tilt forward when I aggressively lean in is a lot scarier than the tilt-back - I have a split second where I fear that the wheel won't be able to keep me upright and the tilt-back almost comes as a relief that it didn't. When it tilts back, the wheel doesn't really shoot ahead of me, I just rotate my ankle backwards.
  10. Oh man, that would drive me nuts, especially if I'm going to spend $2,800 on a 100 volt. Please let us know if you are able to fix the creak if you ever decide to take the wheel apart.
  11. I never understood why people hate Kingsong's tilt-back as much as they do. Sure, it's abrupt but it's not too difficult to get used to, especially if you expect it. The tilt-back is usually preceded by the beeping noise so it almost never comes as a surprise. I'm getting my first real Gotway so I'm a bit apprehensive on how that tilt-back will work. It blows my mind that you are able to disable it completely as well on a Gotway.
  12. Nikola Plus without question. The main reason I'm upgrading from my 16S is because I outgrew the top speed on it. It went from being scary topping out at 22 mph to now constantly getting beeps and tilt-backs. I don't want to outgrow my next wheel because it's too slow. The Nikola Plus's top speed is 37 mph vs 31 mph for the regular Nikola. This is why I'm no longer getting the Kingsong 16X after I found out about the Nikola Plus.
  13. Or maybe the 16X will suit me just fine....
  14. I've had a deposit down for the 16X for some time now because I felt it was superior compared to the Nikola. I don't think I will follow through on the 16X and instead wait for the 100V Nikola. The 37 mph top speed and massive battery capacity blows the 16X out of the water. The only bad part is I know that glossy finish will be scratched to all hell pretty quick.
