    Ninebot One S2 Vibration on 15km/h+ speed

    Thanks guys for replies. Funny thing that I though I didn't ride correctly before I applied the grip to the wheel, as it feels steady, now it looks like I was wrong. I'll try to avoid any grip on a wheel during straight rides and see if it helps. I also tried different feet positions but I need more time to feel the difference.

    Finally managed deflate, clear, inflate as per above and went on a ride. It is, probably, just me as a beginner, after all, look at the videos and tell me what do you think?

    I find segway/ninebot support awful. I had issue with misaligned tyre valve from new, and called UK office many times with no help at all. I almost arranged return (considering this new issue I probably should have) but managed to find this forum with was much more helpful then official channels. I fear if something happens with devices it will be very hard to return/fix under warranty, and I have 3 I don't fancy repairing on my own.

    I have done little, comparing to your milage, only 34km. I'll try some tricks mentioned in the posts above first. Next time I'm on the road I'll film and post it.

    I did fully deflate it. I blew the dust off, but next time I'll do it with brush and more as advised. What is the max PSI, I read that recommended is 40-50. Thanks.

    Update: I've disabled the handle stop function, and tried to pull it with handle. I definitely don't see the same vibration as on balancing video, its pretty steady. But I can't manage to make it speed up slow. As soon as it airborne it accelerate very fast to the max speed.

    Ninebot One S2 Vibration on 15km/h+ speed

    I tried different feet positions, and now I'm quite confident its not that. I'm not a professional but it feels like its not that. When I accelerate it slowly to max, with wheel between my hands, I can feel the vibration, but how do I know its not strong, it manageable to hold, for sure, but I feel it. I also tried to deflate the tyre and inflate it again to 45-50 PSI and that improved it a bit, but I can still feel the vibration. I don't fancy the weight balance at all, but I was wondering if this might be a warranty case? I need to do a long ride in order to understand if re-inflating helped, if not I'll try resit it. Thanks for help!

    Thanks guys, I'm thinking of myself as a beginner, for sure, so I will try the tricks with feet position, it was bothering me before, and will try slow spin vibration. I hope its not the wheel, it was so hard to access the tyre valve I would hate to do it again.
  9. Hey guys, after been training to ride for a while, I finally managed to find time to go out in the wild. Rode on normal tarmac road, and noticed when the wheel reaches 15km/h+ speed, it started to make micro turns left and right, continuously, from what it feels like 0.3s for every turn (like micro curves), and it does maybe no more then 3-4", still I can feel it and it makes me uneasy. I can mange it, but its not a comfortable ride for sure. First I blamed the surface, but then I went to a very nice and flat tarmac, and vibration continued. the picture attached showing its trajectory. I tried re-calibration to no avail. It is normal, or I need to get it fixed? Thanks.

    It is common sense to check tire pressure before riding, the only problem with unicycles its not the same as with your bike, like I didn't know that its better to learn on low pressure, even it makes perfect sense now. The issue was to reach the valve to be able to top up the pressure. Thanks Ch.Eng.62 and others for suggestion to lower the pressure further to be able to pull the valve. Now after using it for a couple of weeks, the pressure remain the same meaning nothing was damaged during the surgery

    It actually came without air, new, out of the box. I suppose I have to keep an eye on it.

    And after ten minutes of messing around and moving empty tube (pressure reduced) back and forth I managed to pull the valve out of the wheel. It looks like the most of the valve part was inside. I hope it didn't damage the tube while I was trying it a little before I noticed. This shouldn't have passed Segway QA! Thanks everyone for helping!

    Just want to give you guys an update, I called and someone from service promised to call me back, this never happened. I'll try again tomorrow.

    Thank you all guys for your input, it is really frustrating that such widespread issue has not yet been addressed by Segway in new units. I believe S2 is the latest one, and I purchased it directly from Segway for that very reason - to get good support in the future and to buy latest tech. Now, I'm thinking I could just go with warehouse deals. I have called UK number (from order email) and they promised to give me a call back. I'll post any outcome. I would like to try the moving unpressurised tyre approach, but I fear to brake something and void warranty, I'll wait to hear what they would say. Its annoying as I'm impatient to start learning, but I'm scared I'll damage the tyre if I continue to do so in its current condition.

    Tried that, and valve is standing its ground, I could move it just a little bit, but not enough to be able connect the extender
