    My new Mten3!

    Personally, I weigh ~200 lbs and am very very carful not to jump curbs or put any extra force onto the axel. If you do ride it, it should be fine, but don't expect to be reaching top speed or to have the best range. I get about 18 mph top speed at my weight. You might get somewhere around 15-17.

    They are all white. For the shell, it's not difficult to open. Just be careful with all the wires, mine weren't that secure to the led strip. so they fell off. Unlike larger wheels which have inner and outter shells, this one is only one shell. The battery and control board are connected together, and there is just a few wires. Painting it, you'd want something that doesn't damage the integrity of plastic. There are paints that can make plastic brittle. So get one that's for plastic. Since the plastic itself is pretty smooth the paint might wear off from rubbing, so use a sealant coat over top of it. I have a vinyl cover over mine now. So it no longer looks black. I think I'm going to change the look each summer.
  3. Can you make a post that goes over signatures and profile pictures in both image and gif format?
  4. I like this one https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32830722831.html I'm looking at the metal one actually. I think I'll try that one unless you have a reason I should stay away from it.
  5. Nice! I measured at 14 mm diameter, and 6 mm tall.
  6. The charger cap snapped from repeated use a couple months back and I had a local friend print me a couple. They were a little small and I really had to squeeze them on there to stay. The first one popped off last week. The second one, it wasn't printed that well, and fell apart when I tried taking it off a few days ago. Right now I'm using a little plastic wrap with a rubber band. Does anyone have any suggestions on other ways I can cover the charger port that's removable? I was considering a plastic/rubber PVC Pipe.
  7. I've heard a lot of reports of Kingsong trolly handles breaking. Either it wont latch closed anymore, or the wire broke and the kill switch doesn't work anymore. I've seen reports of people that can't ride the wheel because it broke while they were holding that switch and now whenever it's turned on it doesn't balance. SO. MANY. ISSUES. But, I've never owned one, and these are just posts on this forum, on facebook, and emails I've seen that have been sent to eWheels in my very brief time working with Jason. I do know that internal trolly handles, or built in external trolly handles are all the weakest parts of any EUC that features those. External, aftermarket handles are generally stronger, and easier to replace if/when they break.
  8. To clarify. I don't need that part. I just need the bar to wrap a bike horn onto. Or maybe a flashlight as well. It only needs to be about 2 inches wide and the diameter of a quarter. How its attached to the glove can be either a bar coming from the middle or two bars coming down from the ends. Edit: I completely misunderstood all your posts! Adapters: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2941582https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1112473 I thought of a different, easier idea. What if I just give you the item in question and you can create a little adapter for it similar to the below picture. Then I can just buy a velcro strap and attach it to my wrist. You can use the second adapter I linked as an idea. The item I have is a little bike horn with a quick release clasp that the elastic band is attached to. The band goes around a bicycle handlebar.
  9. It appears that he really is gone now. I'm sad to see him gone.
  10. I agree with Marty. The IPS is not a good wheel. In my opinion, its a horrble wheel for adults. It's recommended weight capacity is that of a child. Anything larger and it will still run, but horribly inefficient. You want to get a wheel that is strong enough to take you to where you want to go while also being hearty enough to not break after a few falls. Personally would recommend a Inmotion V8 since it comes with a protective cover. But since you have the V10F, I'm not sure if getting the V8 would be a good idea. I honestly think you have a great starter as it stands.
  11. Adapter?? It's just a bar. I just want something like a handle bar on the wrist. Something light. How it's attached to the wrist? Maybe something like this but one end is the strap. Or maybe something like a Spade Handle?
  12. I'm looking for a wrist mount that has a bar so I can attach handle bar mounted things to it. Something similar to the GoPro Wrist Mount. Has anyone seen anything like that?
  13. You gonna go? I get off at 5, and don't know if I want to stick around for over an hour to attend.
