    V10F tire pressure?

    Hit a bump... feels like it bounces me up in the air more than I like. Its sorta a personal preference thing.

    V10F tire pressure?

    I'm about 200lb loaded and I ran 35psi. I thought 40+ was way to bouncy.

    Ninebot One Z : Z6-Z8-Z10

    The more I ride the z10, the more I feel the weight, trolley, and instant power off (I am constantly accidentally taping that stupid button) are its only downsides. For turning, I think that if you consciously put more weight in the front outer corner of the direction your turning, its much easier to turn. Example: Turning right at speed, put weight on right toes towards the outside corner of the peddle. This makes it so you don't have to lean with your left leg as hard into the body of the unit. I'll admit it though, I've not gotten this thing over 20mph yet. The v10f and 18L I hit 25mph easy... this is more scary so far :).

    Ninebot One Z : Z6-Z8-Z10

    I agree with some of what they say. Hitting a bump at speed is far bouncier than my 18L. When carving at high speed on my v10f, I liked to do similar. I would use my outside leg to brace the carve... similar (but not as extreme as the picture) to the z10... it made carving w/ the v10f more fun than carving w/ the 18L.

    My Z10 Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    If your only charging 1 battery durring breaking I would assume the system can handle only half the amps... This would account for weaker breaking.

    My Z10 Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    I tried to imediately switch to the ks18l.... Now I can't ride it :). I overlean all my slow turns. I don't think the Z10 likes to go straight I think it likes to stay upright, which in turn makes it go straight even at slow speed it's more upright then other unicycles.

    My Z10 Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    I just rode my z10 for the first time, I almost ate it on the first 2mph turn. This thing is weird. I need more time with it. Also, I'm probably 200lb loaded up and 30psi seems bouncy.

    My Z10 Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    Isn't the easy way to test "low braking power" with out a hill? just to try and out brake it... Even on flat it's a fair test. I have out leaned my 18l in accelerating, just try to do the same braking. I'd recommend padding up your butt and elbows first tho :).

    Triple 8 wrist guards

    I have 4 different pairs of wrist guards and the triple 8's are my favorite by far. I like having a single strap and they breath well. I've had a cutout with them on and they did great. No wrist pain, very slight busing on the palm of my hand. I usually only wear the right hand because I always roll that way. From all my wrecks (slow motorcycle, bikes, snowboards, etc...) I always hit the right side of my body. when I did my faceplant, I didn't even have a left guard on and there wasn't a single scratch on that hand... all the impact went on my right and into the wrist guard.

    KS18L Firmware 1.07

    Reboot your phone and try again. Mine did that too but reconnected.

    V10F vs KS18L?

    That's a good point. I'll find a GPS app. I heard the same for inmotion's app too though.

    Firmware V 2.27 so far is passing the test!

    That's not really true. There are lots of ways you can get left overs. It just depends on how they company does the flash. flash. There are lots of ways for a software to flash firmware. It doesn't have to be a bit for bit copy. That said, this would still be surprising to me.

    V10F vs KS18L?

    Also, update from my last 2 rides: 18l is more stable at higher speeds than v10f - I hit 40kph all the time on the 18l riding in the same places I would usually start topping out at 35kph on the v10f (just because of how comfortable I was at those speeds on the v10f). On the 18l, you don't notice how fast you're going. On the v10f I feel like I had to really try (hard forward lean) to hit 40kph and maintain that speed on flats. I think the v10f has more torque at low speed than the 18l The auto-shutoff handle on the 18l sucks, never works when you want it too... on the plus side though, it doesn't accidentally trigger either (firmware 1.0.7). I'll re-calibrate it again, maybe I lifted it too fast making it very insensitive.

    V10F vs KS18L?

    Well, I out-leaned my 18l today. I have a "rounded curb" from the street into my driveway (i'll take a pictures sometime) and went up it pretty slow. Usually I hit it with more speed but this time I hit it slow. It caused me to lean forward more than I was comfortable with but I decided to "trust the machine." In under 15ft, I went from 2-3mph to the alert "please decelerate" (or whatever it says). I was still falling forward and could tell it didn't have enough juice get back under me, so I aimed for the grass next to my house and bailed. My grass is pretty fluffy so I barely felt it, but it was still annoying that I can outlean it going up a simple incline at low speeds. After doing it on my ks14c, I was hoping the v10f and 18l have enough torque. I've outleaned the v10f (on a grass hill very slow), the ks14c on the same curb, and now the 18L. I really think that these things aren't made for 200lb's :). Anyone else have this problem?

    V10F vs KS18L?

    On first ride, yes. I'm not sure that is true the more miles I put on it. Right now I just need some more time on the 18l. My feet fatigue much faster on the 18l though so putting miles on is taking me longer. I may remove the outside peddle padding (am I even supposed to leave that on there?), See if that helps.
