  1. DarknessBot and official app from Gotway. I'm 90% sure that you'll need Gotway app to remove beeps. :-)
  2. Buying from Aliexpress is frowned on by creators. Both KS and Gotway don't support wheels that come from China, so you essentially get no warranty. Mten3 is a problematic wheel - it's very good on a flat surface, but any bump, pothole, curb or root and you have a problem. For 900 Euro you'll either have to buy from China or second hand. Just be careful - on ebay.nl you can find offers that send from China - that's essentially the same as Aliexpress. And make sure to get the receipt from the seller to know where to service it in case of problems!
  3. A really cool way to commit suicide. I wonder how well it brakes in case of emergency when compared to a normal motorbike...?
  4. I prefer suburbs instead of to the city center. Unicycles have the same 1-day shipping. It's way less noisy. It's only 5km to the center anyway. The internet has the same speed. Traffic jams happen way less often. It's not so crowded. Forests and trails are near. I'd loose a lot by moving to a more expensive place in the city. Cost of living is often tied to history, economics and culture. In case of Poland it's mainly it's history: World Wars and communism devastated the country and it's slowly, but steadily catching up. Poland is safer than more expensive countries despite being 3 times cheaper: Poland has 2 times lower homicide rate than UK and Germany, 8 times lower than USA: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_intentional_homicide_rate Poland scored better than Germany, UK and US in the wallet drop test: https://science.sciencemag.org/content/365/6448/70 I cheated the economic situation by working over the internet. Some people emigrate and come back. Personally I don't see much difference. Speaking of more expensive places... San Francisco has a feces problem. That alone is a good counter-example for the "cheaper place does not have the same standard of living". I completely agree. It's way too often when I speak with people who earn multiples of average salary and still live paycheck to paycheck.
  5. Tilt-back in KS is really hard to ignore, so I'm pretty safe. Good news is that all 3 speakers are connected with connectors. Don't delay, disconnect them today.
  6. Looks like a badly textured 3d model.
  7. Luck matters in the short term. Early retirement is a marathon, not a sprint. In the long term everything averages out. S&P 500 continues it's steady growth despite Black Friday/Monday/2008 financial crash. Luck will make you achieve your goal 3 years earlier or 3 years later. But you'll get there eventually. Quite often a cheaper place has the same standard of living for the lower price. I wouldn't say that Poland is any worse than Great Britain despite being 3 times cheaper for basic necessities. Thus it makes a lot of sense to move to London, save for 5 years and come back. I have a friend who did exactly that.
  8. And I disconnected all speakers from my KS16S. There is no way to disable annoying beeps in software, so something had to be done. It eludes me why KS doesn't have tilt-back without beeping and a volume slider. I don't want to wake up the whole house when I go riding at night.
  9. https://www.mrmoneymustache.com/2013/02/22/getting-rich-from-zero-to-hero-in-one-blog-post/zz The algorithm to early retirement is simple: Work hard Don't spend money on useless stuff Invest money you've saved Your savings rate is the only thing that really determines how early you can retire. If you're able to save 50%, you'll be able to retire in about 20 years. With savings rate of 75%, it should take 5-10 years. https://networthify.com/calculator/earlyretirement Mr. Money Mustache guy was able to do it before 30. Early retirement extreme did it in about 5 years [but the way he did it was kinda... extreme ]. I also saved enough to never work again before 35. If you'll work in a high salary place [ex. California, London], save like crazy and move to a low-cost-of-living place [ex. Mississippi, Romania], you'll be able to do it even faster. On average, the economy grows 6% above inflation [Real S&P 500 with dividends]: https://thume.ca/indexView/ Early retirement people assume 4% just to be conservative. So every $1 earned now will become $2 in 20 years. As for retiring at 59... I'm not impressed. Kinda late.
  10. @MBIKER_SURFER It's quite simple actually: The less you spend on wheels, the faster you'll be able to retire. http://www.mrmoneymustache.com/2013/02/22/getting-rich-from-zero-to-hero-in-one-blog-post/
  11. IBM helped Hitler facilitate the jew genocide. How did Nazis know who was a jew? With IBM technology: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dehomag We are seeing a repeat of that today. China introduced their Social Credit system that scores people based on their behavior and beliefs. If you're tacking smack against the rulers, your score goes down. If you're friends with anti-party people, your score goes down. Same goes with crimes. Penalties include restrictions on travel, business, obtaining loans, or access to education. Companies can lose access to low-interest bank loans or be dropped from government contracts. One government slogan for the scheme says: “Once you lose trust, you will face restrictions everywhere.” 17.5 million flight tickets and 5.5 million train tickets were blocked in 2018 because the citizens attempting to purchase them were on the government’s blacklist for social credit offences. Source: https://newspunch.com/millions-chinese-banned-travel-social-credit-system/ We do not want that in the west. Facial recognition should be banned, governments should be forbidden from snooping around without a good reason and encryption should be everywhere. George Orwell was right, he was just too early. Smartphones are way more potent than anything presented in 1984.
  12. A fellow fatty I see. You'll need to take official ranges and divide them by 2. Inmotion V10F seems like a good deal. 500km, pretty much new: https://www.olx.pl/oferta/monocykl-elektryczny-inmotion-v10f-pokrowiec-gwarancja-do-2020-CID767-IDzLn57.html But some people don't like it: https://forum.ecojazda.pl/index.php/start/inmotion/390-v10f-zablokowany-limit-maksymalnej-predkosci-do-34-km-h?start=20#7594 Inmotion V8 lacks power for us fat people. Gotway MSuper V3 is also available cheaply: https://www.olx.pl/oferta/monocykl-gotway-msuper-v3-CID767-IDAsf3F.html https://www.olx.pl/oferta/monocykl-elektryczny-gotway-msuper-v3s-1600wh-84v-CID767-IDAtGet.html I can't comment on it as I've done no research on it. If you find positive reviews, this may be the best choice. On paper they look solid. I have KS16S 840Wh and it's a love-hate relationship. It drives very well, has a lot of power, 35km of range, off-roads in the forest no problem. But I've had to replace the inner tube every so often. And replacing the tube is not fun - it's not a wheel you open easily. :-/ Personally I plan to buy MSuper X some day. But that's outside of your budget. Thus I recommend MSuper V3S, KS16S or V10F in that order. Then if you can spare $500 more, MSuper X or KS18XL - both have their advantages over the other.
  13. Damn, I've been played! Well, if they define that e-scooter has to have a handle and a mechanical brakes like in Ireland... Then ECU's will still be screwed in UK.
  14. That would be one way to do it... But I think that the best way would be to gear up and limit yourself to 10km/h for your first ride so that you can jump off if it cuts out.
