    I second the InMotion. I'm sorry. I'm weak. I just couldn't resist.

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    I have the iPhone app and it has always shown imperial "miles" on the "first" screen and metric "miles" on the "second" screen. The app just wrongly uses the terms "mi" and "mileage" instead of "km" and "kilometers". Everyone knows to multiple miles by .6 to convert kilometers to miles (very close anyway). So 250 "miles" really is 150 "miles" on the iPhone App. I know I should keep my mouth shut, but I just can't. @novazeus, take a breath. I'm sure your original V10F is just fine. I know what a pain in the ass it has to be for you and Bob but the issue really doesn't add up to a refund or new wheel. I think @Jeffrey Scott Will and his team have been great dealing with this huge warranty/recall situation. It's not easy for a very small company like InMotionUSA to step up and perform like they have.

    Nils, what was your battery level when these happened? I wonder if there are two kinds of Overloads ... one due to long, steep climbs in hot weather (overheating) ... another, "pushing" hard into hills but at lower battery levels? The two times that I got an Overload was for the latter. I've tried to duplicate one of the Overloads by pushing hard up the same steep hill with a lot of battery reserve and I couldn't get it to Overload. I tend to keep my wheel highly charged but maybe I'll let the charge dwindle and try the same hill at below 40% battery level to see if Overloads again.

    @kjon12 No. I went over the 520 Bridge. I've done it twice so far. Both times in beautiful weather with no wind. I imagine the I-90 bridge would be nice as well.

    We definitely get cheated out of sunshine here but today was 88 F. and I just did a 14 mile trip up and down some pretty steep hills. Still no overheat/overload. Maybe the V10F is a "weightist" and doesn't like little guys. LOL I'm 220+ lbs and don't feel cheated at all. 😃

    @dw8928 My V8 was a super commuting wheel. The only problem was its limitation for range. My V10F is GREAT. Plenty fast, long range, smooth ride and it takes me everywhere I want to go in Seattle. I've even taken it from Belltown to Bellevue Square and back on a single charge with juice left over (27 miles). And I'm 220+ lbs, with gear. I'm now running 2.2.8 firmware. I've tried, but I haven't been able to get it to overload on me yet. It is a super stable wheel. I've also been pleasantly surprised (actually grateful) with how the wheel has saved me from being pitched forward and off the wheel, while going over potholes, dips and drops, at speed (20+ mph) with no time to avoid. In other words, at "clenching" moments, the wheel has performed incredibly. I wear gear (wrist, knee and helmet) but it's never pleasant to get thrown off, regardless. If I was in Southern California, in 90 F., and doing long and steep, uphill off-roading, my experience (and opinion) might be different. But DAMN, this V10F is one nice machine. I ride it every day and rarely use my car any longer. Seattle is great that way in that everything is pretty much within a 5-mile radius. That Z10 is an awesome looking wheel though. I'd love to be able to test drive one. But in the meantime, I don't feel "cheated" by the V10F in any way.

    Hey guys. Let's keep focused on InMotion/EUC's and leave the political comments for other venues ... PLEASE!

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    I'm 220+ lbs (with gear) and ride up and down all the steep hills in Seattle with no problems. Running 2.2.8 now. I tend to push pretty hard up the hills. Yesterday, a short ride at temps of 87 degrees I hit a Max. Power of 2256 watts and 22.7 mph with no overload. Of course, my ride was only a 2.3 mile round trip (maybe 6 minutes each way), up and down medium steep hills. Like @maltocs, I really love the ride of this machine. Over the past three years my wheels have been the Xtreme and the V8. I loved my V8 too. My motherboard temperature showed 111 F. The "main board" temperature on my app doesn't work. According to that, I'm at dry ice temperature of -98 F. I'm running iOS. Does anyone have a fix for this temperature reading problem? I've deleted and reloaded the app to no avail.

    Careful Marty. Some Californian excise tax person might see your post and come after you to pay the use tax (plus penalties and interest) on all the wheels you've ever purchased. 😃

    I've never had crazy wrong speed reading but I've gotten alarms at 24.5 (39.4 ), 23.5 (37.8), 22.5 (36.2 ) and 21.6 (34.8) with the 21.6 mph at 60% battery. What I do have on my iOS app is way wrong temperature readings at the -44 to -98 F (it will flicker between these two temperatures every second when machine is resting). On the first screen, it shows Mileage correctly but on the second page it shows the mileage number in Kilometers but still labels it as miles. I've deleted and reloaded the iOS app with no change. I have experienced overloads but only twice in 320 miles. Once going up a steep hill at speed after 1.5 hour ride and another time on a steady but not steep hill. Both times I was pushing hard. My riding doesn't entail constant uphill rides for extended times though. I weigh 215 naked.

    @maltocs How were you able to hit 32.2 mph? Did you get alarm? That seems incredibly fast for the V10F. AND SCARY. Nice video. Thanks.

    I'm sure @MBIKER_SURFER is on 2.2.6 but I'm on 2.2.6 and never had the alarm at 33-34kph until yesterday with battery at 60%. As I posted earlier today, my alarms have been at 24.5 (39.4 ), 23.5 (37.8), 22.5 (36.2 ) and 21.6 (34.8). My riding weight, with gear is 220+/- lbs. I've got the BIG tilt-back a couple times when climbing steep hills while pushing speed as hard as possible. Another time I got it with battery levels below 40% after riding for 1.5 hours on a hot day going up a slight hill at speed. This is the big issue that all of us V10F owners are hoping there is a fix for.

    My V10F is still running FW 2.2.6 and has speed set at 25mph (40kph). Depending on battery levels, I've had the alarm come on at 24.5 (39.4 ), 23.5 (37.8), 22.5 (36.2 ) and 21.6 (34.8). My riding weight, with gear is 220+/- lbs. The 21.6 mph warning was with the battery at 60%.

    Autonomia Inmotion V10

    It's probably just me but I don't get why people want to ride with these covers. It reminds me of those old ladies that cover all their furniture up with clear plastic. LOL I could see doing it if it was a comfort thing though. I can see that it might be with a neoprene cover. ???

    @UniVehje ... After erasing the flash, I had to download and install sounds in the Sound Customizaton area. Same thing with Light Effects. For the Sound I had to Download and Install it 3-4 times before it worked. For the Light Effects, I had to go to a specific Effect (like Spinning) and then hit Transfer. Don't forget to put the wheel in the same download position that you use for upgrading the firmware. Not having any sounds is a bit disconcerting. If I was getting alarms at low speeds though, it would make me want to turn them off. I would just be afraid of going past the point of no return and having a cut-off at 24-25 mph. Scary. I wear gear but just light skateboard wrist guards (https://www.amazon.com/Rollerblade-Bladegear-Wristguard-Headband-Bundle/dp/B071VCKT1N/ref=zg_bs_3416351_37/130-8776360-3018108?_encoding=UTF8&refRID=4B4HBRWHTYGZFKNVVPT7) , really comfortable and easy to put on and off, Arcteryx knee pads (https://www.backcountrygear.com/knee-caps.html?sku=ARC9K20495-BLACK&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&adpos=1o4&scid=scplpARC9K20495-BLACK&sc_intid=ARC9K20495-BLACK&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI_K3N8Zr42wIVDHp-Ch0n4Q4LEAQYBCABEgITx_D_BwE) and a Bern bike helmet. I don't think this would be quite enough protection though for a 25 mph face plant cut-off.
