    Sure I will forward your request as user feedback

    For current fw, there is no switch to turn the system notification sound on or off, but there is a volume slider, I never tried to slide it all the way down, I’d like to keep a low volume, so I know it’s been switched on or off, and it’s important to know if the spin lock function is activated, I always wait for the confirmation sound before I really lift the wheel up. The sound effects are very pleasant. And don’t worry about the warning volume, all warning sound are not affected by the volume slider, and remains at the maximum, But it’s still hard to hear sometime when you are riding fast and the wind noise is too loud.

    For 1.0.0 fw, it doesn’t reset brake assist anymore.

    I know, but then anyone else can connect to it... I don’t like that... Made a prank the other day, connecting to one other guy ‘s Z and played a short engine explosion sound on his wheel...

    Bluetooth is on by default, I wish I can turn it off, I don’t want to play my voicemails via my wheel, but since it’s not password protected, if I don’t connect to it, basically anyone can connect to it at will... and play whatever embarrassing sound ... you should see a “ninebot” under Bluetooth search.

    Then good chances you will like it off... I keep it off most of the time.

    @Marty Backe Did you try out the Brake Assist option, some find it helps going down constant downhill slope. It was designed to give the rider a better posture in such situation. Feedbacks for this function varies among Z owners, you may like it.

    The current firmware version is 1.0.0. It has its own problems and it’s only fully compatible with the newest mainboard. All beta test units were sent back to the factory to replacement of new board and new shells. So we have no idea if the current firmware will be pushed to existing beta units. There is a good chance that the speakers for system sound will not work again on Marty’s Z10. There is a warning sound when Z is about to overheat, if the speaker works. Or, you can keep your app open, in the settings menu look for “basic information” or “other information”, you can monitor the temperature in real time, There are two temperature values, the second one (board/drive temperature) is what matters most. About Z’s power, on a flat road, it accelerates quite fast, no one would say it is under powered, but on an extended steep slope, it just gives in. I haven’t had the chance to take my production Z10 to the mountain where I reported the overheating/inferior performance problems with the beta Z10. I’ll fly to NY tomorrow and I’ll definitely test it again soon after I get back to Beijing on August 7th.

    I understand, I realize when we say "Toy" we meant different things. By "toy" I don't mean bad quality bad design or anything negative like that, it's just something designed for the fun of it, as opposite to a "tool". Let me try to explain my view on these 2 wheels the best I can, hopefully I can express myselft without too much confusion. To me, Z is more like a toy, something for fun, but not exactly practical. On the other hand, V10F is a great tool, a mean for tranportation. Z is fun to ride, no doubt about that, but it can be awkward if I need to take it on a bus or a subway train. It's very heavy and wide. The exposed tire looks great, but it's embarrassing if mud one the tire get on somebody else's pants, or someone hit his ankle on the metal stand on the end of the trolley handle... and that poor trolley handle... V10F has a good headlamp, a nice trolley handle, a smoother ride, it is much more practical than the Z, especially in the city environment where I live in. But, I have to say after a few days with the V10F, I realize that what I really wanted from InMotion wasn't a V10F, but a V8 Mark II. I hope my V8 has a smoother ride, more comfortable pedals, better headlamp, maybe a bit more speed and range, but more importantly, I wanted the agility, great accelerations, light weight and convenience of V8 to stay unchanged.

    I think V10F is a better wheel all around especially in a city, but Z is a lot more fun. V10F with a good firmware (hopefully the 2.2.7 will do) should be able to make Z feel like a toy on a continuous incline. With current setup Z couldn’t keep up with Tesla/V10F/GT16, but these are 16 inches wheels which tend to have better torque/acceleration. That’s only my experience though.

    DarknessBot is not compatible with Z for now. The apps sees Z10, but fail to connect.

    How do you feel? Looks kinda uncomfortable

    Yes, the lights itself doesn’t draw much current, I was told the transformer which lights rely on to work pushes temperature up. I don’t know if this is true, or significant enough to care. Another thing, try riding it backwards, I do not mean going backwards but turn your wheel 180 degree so the mud guard is facing forward while you ride normally. Some like it better because it is easier to turn. When you test the trolley handle, push it backwards too, this I know for sure works better.

    I settled on low 20s for protection of my knees but I don’t ride on dirt trail... Turn off all lights, it may help temperatures a little bit.

    I tested again, I still have no idea what causes the random sideway pull. To me personally, it is only obvious at mid 20s psi range, it disappears or become less of a problem when the pressure is higher or lower than that range. I'm 181 lbs. FYI
