    THE FACE PLANT WALL OF INFAMY

    Well it is just an estimated cost..in euros Flexmeter wrist guards 85 Tsg Pass helmet 205 TSG Solid helmet (alternative) 60 POC DH jacket 330 Skaters beginners pack knee/elbow/wrist 50 MC pullover trousers with padding 55 MC pullover jacket,green 60 Gloves for fall/early winter 20 MC hardshell backpack 15 ....It adds up...But as I view it it only take one hard accident and your life is worth what? And at what pain? But but but... safetygear is no substitute for using witts and your brain. However responsible you ride you cannot ensure other in traffic do the same. Here is where safety gear comes into play. Just imho and almost 40+ years as bicycle rider lessons learned. Note: I am considering a Ruroc helmet as I view the modular build up appeals more and more to me. Hmmm Black Friday ...maybe.

    We will see...I might test this if I can get a set of spare outer shell sides and cousins for a fair price preferable from a refurbish wheel. Scratches doesn't matter to me as I am going to test reflective coating the shellsides and the clear coat to seal the surface. As for screwholes the pad of duallock on the shell/wheel side can be cut so it doesn't cover the hole. Again I might test this and if so post pics...

    Funny you have this advice, I did just that. Upgraded from Inmotion vV8 8 to KS18L. No to ride much faster but safer. My 2 real crashes so far has been on my Inmotion V8. My KS18L just make me feel so much safer but still....You have seen this pic before 😊 I wear the POC underneath my green mc jacket. But I got new gloves...green/yellow of course.

    Electricunicycles.eu reputation?

    In short they should be aware. And they have been active before on the forum. It is hard to build up an reputation or a good reputation. It can be lost with few wrong moves. As you said @Pavel lag of communication and no response to customers is a fast track in the wrong direction. I try to be fair and diplomatic, however I can state the service of my wheel didn't go as planned on my end nor as dealer and I agreed upon before I shipped my KS18L away. I have spare parts purchase questions still outstanding as this was part if the plan for service, yet no answers yo these. Yes they did give me an offer with spare parts due to long backorder for my Inmotion V8, and I took that offer. This was seperate. They have stated they have big plans and it is to be announced soon (was on their web site) but for now I treat this as teasers or movie trailer... There are a few dealers in the market and I understand it is a new market too. Too bad I don't have a dealer yet in my country is all I think. It would work in Scandinavian country for me, maybe not Finland, as they are too far away for me to travel. But who knows maybe some day...

    I can't say what is going on inside the company. But I can add my 2 cents to this... I Just today got my "big" baby back (KS18L) form service at this dealer. They provided the shipping and I could trace the shipping that got delayed from Sweden through Denmark, through Germany and the arriving in Polan. Then it was dead silent from about 4th nov 2018, until this morning when my local postal service announced I had an incomming shipping today. I had my trolley and lamp unit reworked. I have yet to take it out for test drive, but so far so good. But I got really concerned since I could not get any news or response from the computer. I got for now my case resolved, but with a delay. But to be fair as a customer here, part of the delay was due to shipping delay, at least one way.

    Wheeling Sickness

    @Hunka Hunka Burning Love I think in your case, you are much better of on a couch with nurses keeping an eye on you. Just a hunch I have....

    @US69 you can find promotion videos on you tube. It does the same as double sided adhesive tape or Velcro does but it is not really either. It is strong and fairly simple to use.

    Eventually you might get a puncture or have to change the tyre. Not all have an EUC dealer around the corner to do the service required. Just an idea to make the wheel more service friendly.

    Wheeling Sickness

    So @Hunka Hunka Burning Love Are you back to riding again after you accident? I lost track of you talking about quitting to ride or if you picked it up again once the pain and dust settled down. Btw I had a pot hole fall a few days ago but am ok due seeing the pot hole and wearing all safety gear. I will ride again once I get my Inmotion V8 looked at or I get my KS18L back from warranty service, if weather allow it. The lift button got stuck so now it don't work or rather doesn't move on my Inmotion V8.

    @US69 do you know if Kingsong has tested using 3M Dual lock instead of adhesive tape to fasten foam pads? It is a bit inconvenient having to peel off the pads to open the wheel. Or have you experimented with this @Jason McNeil ? From what I gather it should be fairly strong and durable.

    First Impressions & Photos of the KS18XL

    It might not seem to have a front or back beside the mudguard...however... You do not want to meet a car head on in a dark evening or night as the cars headlight might hit light sensor and turn you light off. Unless you covered the sensor for this not to happen.

    Anyway good job @Jason McNeil and @tinawong it can be hard to fight the argument of conservative company board. Creative people see opportunity and potentially new market shares. Conservative company board only see added cost Imho these devices are new way of travel. Making them suit more people is key for them to catch on and make way for biggest sale. I do think @Jason McNeil @tinawongand @US69 help Kingsong to be on the right track. I might not need the bigger pedals but then again I have small feet compare to most western EU citizens. Belly is about average plus a few undisclosed inchesπŸ˜‰ Good job all.

    THE FACE PLANT WALL OF INFAMY

    Glad you are ok afterall. I had my first semi faceplant as I wrote about in another thread though. I were "forced" by an overtaking car into my lane with no room but to try to ride into a big pot hole with water and in the dark. So I kind of were prepared but didn't expect the hole to be that deep. It looked to be like 1" or so but was in face somewhere like 2-3", too steam for my Inmotion V8 to climb and too wide for wheel to roll over and yet too short for me to catch the balance in the pot hole. Fully geared up I too escaped unscaved...mostly. now a few days after I have some sore muscles in my arms. But Flexmeter did their job ...again. πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘as for the driving skills of the Volvo V90 I am not impressed at all. @Scatcat I suggest you look at Black Friday giveaway lotto at www.ruroc.com They hold drawing at the 22nd Nov. and have sale at 23rd with up to 40% off. Just a tip.
