    V10F: enchanted speed-limit at 34 km/h (21 mph)

    I was out riding on local paved paths a few evenings back and got a bit sloppy at high speed. The paths run alongside a creek side filled with mature trees so the pavement has a fair share of ghost bumps from the tree roots. Long story short, early in the season I am cruising along a path with known issues near max speed and hit a large ghost bump. The impact launched both feet off of the pedals. As I hit the bump my speed alarm went off. At that point I thought that I was hitting the pavement at 21/22 mph. Nope. The wheel kept going and I landed on it with my stomach in my throat, but rode it out. My point is that if you want to safely go past 21 mph then a different wheel is required. I should mention that I am riding G3 pedals which most likely contributed to the effect of the impact. The pedal choice makes the V10 a much better wheel in my opinion.

    V10 Battery Issues... Maybe.

    Thank you for for the link Chriull. Frankly speaking, not sure if I am going to pursue this since I plan on upgrading in July...

    V10 Battery Issues... Maybe.

    I got an ample 5 bar charge by draining the battery as far as I could. My IOS app got corrupted which led to it being deleted from my phone so I am not sure what percentage the battery was at. The next charge was back to 4/5. Drained it down to 2 bars earlier and it is back on the charger. I am going take it out again in a bit and see if I can drain it a bit more then let it sit on the charger all night and see what happens tomorrow morning. At this point in time I assume that the issue is incorrect battery conditioning (every 30 day full drain).

    Did you find the serial number in the application or on the sticker that they attach to the wheel? I ask because when I (attempt to) look at the wheel information on the application it crashes after 2-3 seconds.
  5. LOCATION(S): Lowe's Hardware - Cotati TIME PERIOD: After Dark WEATHER: Chilly DISTANCE TRAVELED: .5 miles WHICH WHEEL OR MAIN WHEEL USED: V10 WHO WAS WITH ME: My former ego TOTAL DISTANCE ON THIS WHEEL: 1600+ BEST MEMORY: Being upright WORST MEMORY: Not being upright via ghost marsh at the park a block from my house RECOMMENDATIONS/WARNINGS FOR RIDERS: Marsh mud has an aroma very reminiscent of sewage. The entire left side of my wheel was coated with the wonderful substance. Joking aside, having a external light saved my clothes post mishap. Shoes, not so much...

I did not, lol

    One more detail. When I take the wheel off of the charger and power it up I do display 5 bars of battery life (100% charge). I get roughly a quarter mile before it drops to 4 bars. Once the unit is at 4 bars the power is consumed as expected.

    V10 Battery Issues... Maybe.

    I have a InMotion V10 that I purchased in July of 2018. Long story short, I am not able to get 5 full bars when charging. The fifth bar slowly flickers as if it is still charging, but the light on the charger is green signifying that the battery is at capacity and no longer charging. I still need to apply my volt meter to the charger, but I can truthfully state that I am getting around 10 miles per charge riding 18mph or slower. I get more miles per charge on my G3 at this point in time. Something does not seem right.

    Foot Pain - Cycling Shoes - TIP

    I started out with skate shoes, but now I swear by high top hiking boots. The thick outer soles absorb most friction and the padded uppers protect my ankles. Best $40 I have spent in a while.

    V10 With Glide 3 Pedals

    If InMotion or one of the re-sellers could design a smaller pedal for the V10 platform I would surely purchase them based on my experience with the G3 pedals. Sadly, the G3 pedals will need to be re-installed when the V10 replacement units arrive.

    V10 With Glide 3 Pedals

    One of the stock foot pedals on my V10 broke last week. I am in the process of going through the warranty process, but it seems like it will be at least a couple of weeks before I see the replacements. Being a busy body I couldn't help myself from getting my V10 back on the road. I mounted the pedals from my G3 on the V10 yesterday afternoon. The slimmer, grip tape covered pedals have really changed the way that the wheel performs (handling improvements). While I am enjoying this configuration one thing to keep in mind is that the G3 pedals do not fold up (no room for spacers) so that can be a challenge if you need to navigate through businesses and what not.

    Broken Pedal

    On a side note I mounted my G3 pedals on the V10 this afternoon. I am really liking the compact/stickier pedals. Only downside is that they do not fold up.

    Thank you Eric, greatly appreciated.

    BTW - did I mention that I was a InMotion Ambassador (prior to the pedal situation)? Done with that...
