  1. I really like the way how you added the red (reflective?) tape around your V10. I was looking to add some myself, but my idea was to add a broad piece of tape between the speakers up till the scorpion trolley handle. Your method looks way nicer, so I did the same to my V10. Bonus advantage : it looks like I've upgraded to a V10F
  2. AFAIK is the "official" statement that only V10F wheels starting with 124 are affected.
  3. Spring is here in full force, which means I tripled my usual mileage on the wheel last week. However, this sparked some back ache in the middle/lower back region. Most of it went away after an hour, but the last days the back ache stays. I've avoided the wheel yesterday, hoping it would get better over time, fingers crossed. Are other people experiencing this as well ? It's not that I do a lot of offroad, but from time to time I like to leave the paved roads. Many bike paths are sometimes in bad condition too, leaving creaks and holes everywhere, which causes the wheel to bump over and to give additional spine stress. How can one avoid/prevent the stress on your back ? I was thinking of lowering the tire pressure, but I'm a bit afraid of increasing the chance of punctures. (Currently riding a V10 with 32-35 psi). I'm also trying to keep my knees bent on the worst conditioned parts of the road, but sometimes a hidden crack/hole can be surprisingly difficult to spot.
  4. In Android, I can connect external speakers and can define the bluetooth connection so that they should be used either for sound only or calls only or both. When I connect my Inmotion V10 to my phone, I disable the BT connection for calls, but enable the connection for audio. That doesn't work, the 'calls' option must be enabled as well.
  5. I think I've hit a bug in the Inmotion app : when the wheel is paired with my Android phone, it will send the sound of any incoming calls to the EUC speakers as well. This is very annoying, as the bluetooth connection is activated when charging. I charge my EUC quite often at work, so this is really annoying. When I disable calls for the EUC in the Android bluetooth settings screen (tested with Android8 and 9), it refuses to play any music through its speakers anymore...
  6. I really get weird looks from people around me when opening the Inmotion app (Is that Tinder ?), it's getting uncomfortable.
  7. I guess all KingSong users named their EUC to their wife, due to the high pitched whining sound... (sorry, couldn't resist)
  8. I had a Xiaomi Mi365 before my EUC. Drove 750km on it, and loved every mile of it. However, the unit had some serious drawbacks (general to the Mi365), which after 4 months drove me to an EUC : * The steering handle becomes wobbly and squeaky after a while which is quite annoying * The tires are a real weak point and are not meant to be ridden on gravel or off-road * Autonomy is limited to (in my case) 20km * Speed limited to 25kmh (admit, we all want to drive faster, aren't we ?) * Still quite large when folded, and a bit awkward to take with you on the train. I still felt safer on an electric step, probably due to the lower speed, lower center of gravity & the fact you can easily jump of when losing control.
  9. Whoa, really - that title is some serious clickbait !
  10. My high speed on my V10 is 24mph, average speed is about 18 mph. Mind you, that's for my 9 km commute with very few 'obstacles' like crossing roads, red lights and such. But don't stare at numbers. If you're a beginner (which I assume you are), just move on at speeds you're comfortable with. I took my last fall at 500 kms, so don't be too confident too soon - falling at high speeds can be quite painful, with injuries which can last for weeks. Just start cruising, speeding will come with experience.
  11. LOCATION: Belgium, Tielt-Winge DATE: Feb 11th TIME: 9:15 am and 18 pm WEATHER: Sunny with some clouds, 2°C DISTANCE TRAVELED: 18 km, daily commute WHICH WHEEL OR MAIN WHEEL USED: Inmotion V10 WHO WAS WITH ME: my shadow TOTAL DISTANCE ON THIS WHEEL: 1175 km BEST FEATURE OF THE RIDE: Finally back on the wheel after 3 weeks of rain & snow. And being able to FLOOR IT (max speed during the ride 39 km/h) WORST FEATURE OF THE RIDE: Discovered a crack in my helmet visor RECOMMENDATIONS/WARNINGS FOR RIDERS: dress warm, the cold creeps in everywhere.
  12. Some kind of suspension would be a killer feature IMO. Riding a wheel on bad roads or cobblestones just damages your knees and back so much. Imagine a wheel with a nice fat tire and suspension, such a wheel would deliver a comfortable ride !
