    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    Is there a way of identifying by serial number if we have an affected wheel with the bad batch of bearings?

    So the bad bearing were only part of the first batch and not the second batch that was sent out May 25 from Inmotion USA?

    OK, it's not that bad then. Thanks. Hope I never have to do more than a tire change. (hope nothing breaks)

    Crap, you have to rip the whole thing apart to change the tire.... Sure hope I never have to fix a flat!

    Yes, I agree. I want to know if my wheel was made with the potential wheel bearing issue so I can take action sooner than later.

    Bluetooth Horn Button???

    The speakers produces sounds on its own without the app being on so that is why I thought the wheel itself was generating the sound. The horn does sound like a car's horn so it is an mp3 or wave type source but from where? If it is in the wheel, then the app just accesses the function which makes me think a bluetooth type button could be paired to the wheel to act as a wireless horn button without the app or phone. Maybe just wishful thinking.

    Bluetooth Horn Button???

    I didn't think about the horn being generated in the app as a sound file. Are you sure that is where it is coming from?

    Bluetooth Horn Button???

    The V10F I just bought has a nice sounding electronic horn sound that comes out the speaker at a very good volume. I'd like to see a bluetooth button that can access the horn function of the wheel. It's all about software writing for it which I have no ability to do. If it were an actual separate horn, I have no problem interfacing it with a device but this built in fuction requires a software app to work. Some places need a horn to be "legal" and not fined for not having one.

    Bluetooth Horn Button???

    I've got one of these 140dB Hornits on my bicycle. The horn is built into the wheel already and a simple bluetooth button would be perfect instead of a separate device. https://www.thehornit.com/the-hornit-db140-new

    10 pounds heavier than the V10F is quite a lot.

    Bluetooth Horn Button???

    I know the Inmotion app for the V10F has a horn button function already but it requires the phone to be worn and takes time to access it. I see there are Bluetooth push-buttons available that could be worn on the wrist or stuck to the wrist guards and it would be nice if it could be synced to the V10F horn function. I've got no software smarts but it can't be that hard to do??? They have the development code available for them. Here is one example of such a button: https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Bluetooth-Wireless-BLE-finger-PTT-for_60709559215.html?spm=a2700.7724857.main07.58.590b61b7rCb0xu Or maybe the phone app may need to sync with the button and wheel for this to work. I have no clue.

    So far, I haven't had a bearing problem and I've done about 80km of flat city driving and I'm 255 pounds. I did notice from the start when holding on a pole waiting for the light to change that there is a little play in tilt before motor engages but I thought that was the way it was designed. I found the side lights turned off for some reason though. I'm sure not getting 100km range on it... LOL Maybe 50km - must be my fat ass! Driving around 22kmh average. I am pleased so far and hope I don't have a bearing problem pop up.

    Maybe interfacing it to a device like this. https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Bluetooth-Wireless-BLE-finger-PTT-for_60709559215.html?spm=a2700.7724857.main07.58.590b61b7rCb0xu
