  1. Not sure if I like what you are insinuating; that we're bunch of reckless and crazed speed freaks? LOL Yes, the NYC ridership heavily lean towards speed, even though actual sustained speed above 30mph is still uncommon given real world riding condition here (equally crazed driver and terrible road surfaces).
  2. Shameless plug but here's my experience riding my Z10 last winter; the temperature was around 20-30F I think and all charging was done outside. This was not a happy trip for the z10 as the battery was charging very slowly and in the end the wheel wouldn't turn on even though I still have 35-40% left.
  3. If popularity is any indication, the last V10 rider in the NY rider group just bought a 16x while the Nikola 100v is probably the most commonly seen wheel in the group.
  4. From personal experience I feel like Gotway get a bit of a pass on issues given their higher top speed and perceived performance associated with larger battery pack and higher voltage. from having recently bought a Monster I am getting a lot of "oh you didn't know that's a problem? well its part of regular maintenance!" KingSong feels more like its geared towards a more casual ridership, with its mandatory learning period and all. also I don't think anyone would dispute that the trolley handle on the KS 16x is way better then the off center one on the Tesla. btw if a friend ask me which wheel to buy and money isn't an issue I'll prob tell them to get the 16x.
  5. I have been told by official sources from ninebot that all the issues we had talked about; motor wiring and control board melt down, and ghost drain had all been addressed in z10 produced after April 2019. I can't confirm this since I don't have a new z10, and have heard of one instance where a 2019 z10 was still suffering from the ghost drain. But unless you find a really good deal on a 2018 z10, its prob safer to get a new one.

  7. there had been a slew of videos on the recent NYEF event here in NYC, although none of the EUC companies or vendor participated a lot of us certainly did for the huge group rides. Doesn't seem like there had been much discussions so I figure I post some of the video links and also shamelessly plug my own! =D
  8. I really enjoyed the 16X, it felt like a more predictable and slightly faster Z10. If I can only have one wheel it would be high on my list. Don't have much experience with the Nikola, so can't say, but I still am not into the thick round design.

    Gotway Monster 2019

    Thank you! It worked but I think I need to use some loctight since I can feel it loosen up a bit since I tighten it on Friday. Btw I did a long range test yesterday and was able to cover 54 miles and still have 34% battery left. The range on this wheel is pretty amazing.

    Gotway Monster 2019

    Ran into problem with loose axle but thanks to @Rehab1 its fix now I think....
  11. So I received both socket and in case if anyone is in the same predictament; the first socket as well as the original one linked further up the thread does not fit the v3 case, the second one does. Going to put it in the mail and send it to Rehab1 tomorrow.
  12. This is why we all call Ben the “ghost rider” since we’re all convinced that he’s nothing more than a figment of our imagination.
  13. I'll be happy to share! I dont live far from "HQ" the bubble tea joint most eriders gather. Also for Ben I actually travel to Flushing every Saturday since that's where my folks lives. I actually bought 2 24mm socket since the one Chris has, was very tight in the v3 case and difficult to use. So I bought this: Sunex 424mzt 3/4-Inch Drive 24-Mm 12-Point Thin Wall Impact Socket https://www.amazon.com/dp/B006MPCBWM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_YGeEDbXX463RY And this Pro-Grade 14724 1/2-Inch Drive with 12 Point Deep 24mm Socket https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EPKOVLK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_BIeEDb5T2HM25 In case if the first one is too short. I figure the chrome finish might help it turn easier. I'll get the first one tomorrow and the second the day after and will sent the one that does work! Also the axle felt like it loosen some more so I think I am going to stop riding it just to be safe. Back to the i5 I guess..
  14. I had never used an angle grinder before and really only have rudimentary power tool skills; plus I also don't have access to a shop and will have to do whatever work necessary in my living room which might be tough. I would much prefer if I can find someone local to make the cut for me, but I haven't had much luck with any of the hardware store near by, I'll try calling some local custom metal fabricators but I suspect this is too small of a job for them. I wonder how Gotway does it in their factory?
  15. It custom cutting a socket the only option? the open ended wrench even the offset version does not appears to fit thought the other opening in the case and would require the dissemblying of the whole wheel to get to the nut. I have been told that this isn't an uncommon problem, is everyone getting custom socket made just for this purpose? I did try asking at my neighborhood hardware store and they look at me like I am crazy.. Also is a loose axel sufficiently dangerous that I should stop riding the monster?
