    KS18XL feels weird (tilting back at slow speed)

    Enjoy the wheel, but remember to use helmet, wrist guards and knee pads. I got confident and then had a fall after close to 900 km. Not fun! I am getting mine on Friday too, almost thinking about skipping work so that I don't miss the shipment

    Kingsong 18xl vs 16x

    Well if you have to ride the bus for the most part and just need it for a mile, then I would suggest smaller wheel, Maybe KS 14D or S. When I take the bus it is a lot easier to carry the smaller wheel. Also, I don't know about your location, but here in Minnesota some bus drivers have problem with Uni cycle, and they dont let you bring it on, so smaller is better. I own 14D and have been using the bus off and on. If you plan to do long rides over the weekend then sure get 16 or 18. I am getting 18, part of the reason is that I will do all 20 miles on the wheel each way to work and not take the bus, but I love 14D for short commutes.
  3. I bought a Black KS 14D last year from ewheels. I learned on this wheel and also fell one time at 18 mph so it is not in the best shape, however, runs flawlessly. Because of the color imperfections are not visible from a distance. I can send the photos. I did replace the mother board once, because I plugged the wrong cables after the changing the tube. It does come with one spare tube. I was experimenting and didn't know much about electronics so I burned the fuse and fuse sockets. So I had to weld the fuse, however it runs fine. Selling it because I am buying KS 18XL, need a bigger wheel for my 20 mile commute. However, I won't mind a second back up wheel either. So no low balers Minneapolis, MN, US 1000 approx miles Local preferred, however I can ship too, comes with original box. Buyer to pay for shipping. Asking $575.00 new are for $850.00
  4. @Marty Backe I saw your video with your new outfit. The links were only for knee pads and elbow. Can you please share the full list of armor. I really liked it and want to get it. I fell too and dont want to go without proper protection again.

    Wheel on the plane

    I want to ship my KS XL from Minneasota, US to Pakistan for next winter. I plan to stay there for couple of months and I want to enjoy non snow days there. My problem is shipping cost. I checked with UPS & DHL they are charging $450+ one way and I dont even know if they will ship it. I am looking for a cheaper alternative via sea, but cannot seem to find an reliable options on google. Do you have any suggestions?

    I did my pre order in early July and I should get one via air shipment in next batch. It is getting cold in MN and I think it will be too late for me to enjoy. I don't want to pay $2k to have it sit the whole winter. Let me know if anyone wants to buy my spot otherwise, I will request for refund.

    Any update from Jason about the second batch for Z10. He mentioned 3 to 4 weeks. It is almost 4 weeks now.

    @Marty Backe looks like your wheels got down hill issues. Do you want to sell it to me? You can buy it when the issues are resolved

    Yesterday while driving back from work, I was day dreaming, that when I will go home I will see Z10 on my door step and a note from Jason saying Thank you for your patience.

    True, but they are rare and unexpected find and I dont like the feel of studs one paved road.

    Nope! It is MN not Canada. They clear the roads and side walk. The only thing I am afraid of is black ice and really cold wind chill.

    Nah! I am in MN and it is already starting to get cold. But I intend to ride it in winter too.
