  1. Thanks. Not a complete disaster then, but still gut wrenching!!!
  2. Makes sense for obvious reasons & from a safety perspective now that we have heard of GotWay as well as King Song powering up in transit. Even Ninebot Z10's (due to the vampire battery drain issue) have started shipping with the batteries disconnected! Maybe all wheels from all brands should arrive disconnected in future, pretty sure @Ben Kim would agree to that becoming the norm! @houseofjob please pass on how sorry I feel for what must be a huge disappointment for him, I know he has been counting down the days.
  3. I have seen it mentioned somewhere on Facebook that the Monster may also be getting the 126-volt treatment, but not sure how true that is! Also can't remember who it was that made the comment, but fairly sure it was Not a comment from Kebye or Lukas.

    Be sure to let us know how the Monster's batteries are configured. Really keen to hear your feedback on this 2460wh version, as I'm sure will others!!!

    Gotway Monster 2019

    GF's Ali Express details states the following configuration as to how they achieved 2460wh: "2460WH is the upgrade version of the seller, the original 1845WH is modified. The battery used is NCR18650GA, adding 615WH battery" so, it looks like they are still using 18650!!!

    @Ben Kim will be our best bet for an early report on this battery configuration. I'm also really looking forward to hearing feedback from him when it arrives, hopefully sometime soon!!!

    @Hsiang So are you awaiting a Monster V3 too??? If so, did you go for the 100v 2460wh like @Ben Kim ???

    @Ben Kim did your 2460Wh V3 from Green arrive as yet? If so, how are you finding it and did you open it up to check on the layout of the battery packs? Another question that still remains unanswered is whether the motor is 2500w or the original 2000w from the V2? I look forward (and I'm sure others will also) to hearing all of your feedback if you have the wheel already and if not in the very near future!!!
  11. Yes, the original inspiration for this mod was posted by @Marty Backe and includes a video of the process being fitted to an MSX! In my mod I have taken it one step further by using 2 brackets (instead of just 1) to gain more height, more suspension effect and enable the saddle to mount without an upwards angle!
  12. After recently seeing @Marty Backes video, which credited @Ando Melkonyan for the initial idea, I finally received 2 of the “bicycle suspension device” brackets to modify my Tesla for seated riding. Wow, even though I say it myself, I am really stoked and impressed with how well this has all worked out. Up until yesterday I have never been able to give seated riding a go, but took the Tesla out and covered 52kms, mainly seated, at the first try! Obviously, there was a settling in period to transitioning from standing to sitting and the actual position of the saddle did need tweaking as I felt I was sitting just a little too far forward. I have now moved the saddle back about 25mm (1inch), so the next ride should be a lot more dialled in. As far as @Marty Backes initial concerns regarding lateral stability are concerned (when using 2 brackets, rather than 1), I can assure him that 2 brackets do actually mount up extremely solidly. I have purposely left the band clamps exposed, so that I can periodically check the tension, but initial impressions are very favourable as it all remained firmly in place after 52kms including some bumpy off road terrain in places. With using 2 brackets I also found that there is a good amount of spring/suspension effect when needed on rough surfaces. Another plus for this set up was that it has also offered me a place to mount a rear “Serfas” light that I already had. Also, there is no need to use the trolley handle with the seat being tall enough to use instead without crouching. Anyway, take a look at the photos to get an idea of how well it looks without having the saddle mounted at an upward angle and also offering a height of 600mm (24inches) above the pedals!!!

P.S. for reference, I would also add that I’m around your height and weight Marty.
