    New KingSong 16X Rumours

    Looks like KS took inspiration from other Ninebot products too...

    New KingSong 16X Rumours

    Looks great, probably handles amazing and build quality is also probably great, but if the KS16x still makes that high-pitch whine I can't buy it. That KingSong motor whine is embarrassing and distracting, particularly on calm quiet nights.I fear that KingSong will just use the existing KS18L motor (which performs wonderfully) but has that terrible sound.
  3. 33 with just a wool hat! Maybe I can't hear the beeps over my heart pounding at 33 (looking like the sporting goods sale section of Walmart with every type of protective gear made).
  4. Thanks for sharing this video! Crash videos are invaluable sources of information for do's and don'ts. I have been riding for 1 year and have 3,000 miles already (on many different wheels)!!! I've never fallen and I am deathly paranoid and afraid of my future first fall. I noticed in the video that the rider is wearing boots. I have tried to ride in boots, however I couldn't get any sense of feed back from my wheel so I wear minimalist running shoes with super thin soles now. Also I wear a wrist GPS and constantly monitor my speed as Gotway tilt-back is quite gentle and since you have to push hard on Gotways anyways its easy to misinterpret tilt-back for general high-speed resistance. Down-hill on my 100V Monster I had tilt-back set to 48KPH but I was able to ride up to 55KPH without detecting tilt-back. Had it not been for my GPS, I don't know when I would have slowed down, since that Monster is deceivingly smooth at high speed. Another thing: MSX beeps are very faint with wind-rush and full-face helmet at 30MPH.

    New GotWay Nikola 17''

    Yeah, it's also available on eBay for $2,000. I don't like it with the red accents. I'll wait for @Jason McNeil to stock it! His customer service is unmatched anywhere on Earth!!!

    The Kingsong 16X First Ride

    Just in prototype. KingSong is quite safety conscious.

    NEW OneWheel Pint

    Sorry, can't talk you out of it. I've been thinking of a one wheel for a while too. The Pint looks fun! Although that whacky Gotway prototype of a "sideways" Onewheel looks fun also.

    100V 2000WH MSX and 100V 3000WH Monster - Made to order?

    For me, these larger batteries would not be for extreme long distance, but instead to treat the battery in the most responsible way. I could comfortably charge to 80% or 90% for battery health and/or my fast mountain riding would never be done under 50% for good power reserve margin.

    New GotWay Nikola 17''

    I thought the Nikola was ugly at first, its grown on me now. Like all Gotway products, if it out performs all other wheels its looks can be forgiven. If the reviews say crazy fast acceleration and high speed climbing I'm in. I think the large wheel body helps with maneuverability and is more comfortable. I think these ergonomics make the KS18L a big win. My KS18L is embarrassingly loud and a stiff ride over rough pavement, also 1000wh, if the Nikola addresses my KS18L gripes I'll make the switch.
  10. Comments complained that there was no before and after showing.

    New GotWay Nikola 17''

    1850wh at 100v would probably be the move instead of 2400wh, just like the monster. Could do burn-outs with that acceleration!

    Hit by speeding car on Z10

    FYI, I used to work with several different law enforcement agents (city, state and federal) [I am not and never was an officer], they said most cities and federal jurisdictions have laws describing what constitutes "impersonating a law officer", where forward facing or rotating blue lights on a vehicle or bicycle, even just two single small blue LEDs can meet this threshold. Beware!

    Z10 or is 18XL

    @Nevin@Tec-toyz.com located in Santa Clara, CA has a few Z10's in stock right now. I have bought from him in the past. He's knowledgable and reliable.
