    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    Coming from the Ninebot One E+ they felt very stiff even on soft. I played with the Ninebot a bit today though and everything felt very squishy. But after cruising home during the evening and going for a little speed run I started to feel that it might be time to start running a little stiffer. I'll give it a shot tomorrow. Edit: This post didn't make much sense. What I mean is that I went cruising on the MSX in the evening and it no longer feels as stiff as it used to. So I am going to try it on a stiffer mode for riding standing. And perhaps experiment with the modes on seated riding as well.

    It's because I don't feel that I have the same control. I am slowly getting better though. I ride constantly on the soft mode and have done so for the past 400km. However tomorrow I will switch to the medium or hard mode to try some faster speeds and see how that works out. The highest speed I have reached so far is 43km/h and I feel that it's hard to accelerate past 35km/h. I don't really understand what's going on but I am feeling a slight backwards tilt when I speed up.

    Så som pedalerna är vinklade på MSX blir det mer eller mindre automatiskt att man har kontakt med sidorna mot vaderna. Jag försöker att flytta ut eller vinkla ut fötterna eller åtminstone en fot för att slippa ha för hård kontakt mot sidokuddarna då jag inte alltid vill ha hård kontakt eller krama. Kramar jag med benen och åker på ojämn underlag försämras min förmåga att absorbera ojämnheter med benen. Det är bara en fråga om att vänja sig vid MSX. Att tyngdpunkten är en fördel är egentligen bonus då det betyder att du kan manipulera hela hjulet genom att få den i obalans på ett kontrollerat sätt och därmed kunna snabbt svänga. Accelerationen är också en fråga om tillit där du helt enkelt låter din kropp falla framåt mer än vad är van vid på småhjul. Jag åkte lite på min Ninebot One E+ igår under lunchen och skulle leka lite slalom. Översvängde lite och var skitnära att ramla av. Bromsning har jag märkt kan man göra på 2 sätt. 1. Luta dig bakåt och "sätta dig i en stol" 2. Låta hjulet rulla framför dig mellan benen (utan kontakt). Fungera bäst då din kropp är fortfarande i linje. Robert Navarro åker en hel del på sin MSX och jag gillar hans stil.

    Nu har jag åkt 500km på min MSX. Igår åkte jag en sväng på kvällen och kom upp i 43km/h. Min tidigare toppfart var 38,9km/h. Något jag har märkt är att pedalerna börjar luta lite bakåt efter 30km/h. Det är väldigt lite men det ökar i takt med att man kommer upp i mer fart. Jag kan fortfarande cruisa i 40km/h men jag undrar hur man ska komma upp i 50+ samt vad det är för typ av fysisk ansträngning som krävs. Jag har stäng av tiltback via Gotway appen men Darknessbot visar alltid tiltback på 30km/h. Måste man köra någon annan version av någon annan app? Eller är det bara så det är.. att det är lite tiltback oavsett?

    Yeah the KS18s looks like great fun for seated riding without requiring slavic/asian squat ability.

    Yesterday's adventures. Monikas is getting a bit more used to riding. I practiced some more seated riding and it was a bit better as well. We went for a 21km ride. Her battery died when we were 300 meters from home.

    Jag har ett par vänner som kanske är intresserade då dom blev lite sugna efter att ha åkt på min. Vad är det för stats? 1600Wh? Hur mycket har den åkt? Varifrån köpte du den? Några fel eller skavanker?

    Today's ride with my wife. She hasn't been on the Onewheel for a couple of months and I needed to practice seated riding.

    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    Meanwhile... yesterday I took the Onewheel to work (7,5km) and back (7,8km). The weather was +5C and I had 65% battery left upon reaching work. Charged it up and rode from full and had 58% upon reaching home. For a machine that costs 2k that's a bit embarrassing. The trip there was wobbly as I haven't ridden in a while. The trip back was nice but at some times I wished I could go faster than 24km/h. Today i'm going to go for a ride with my wife. Me on the MSX and her on the OneWheel. As I want to keep things even I will force myself to ride seated. I watched this clip for motivation. I'll post a clip later on.

    V10F • What is your average and high speed?

    Speed will come naturally the more you ride. Riding a EUC is self limiting. We ride within our comfort levels and our comfort levels expand as we become better riders. Yesterday I went for a ride and tried to push my comfort level a bit harder. This lead to some quite uncomfortable situations where I was close to losing control a few times. Everything over 15mph feels like drama to me and I pushed to a bit over 20mph. This was during the late evening so it was dark and also wet outside because of recent snow that has melted. In the end it all worked out though and I finished the ride with quite a smile. Ride. Push. Drama. Recover emotionally. Push. The worst part for me though is turning at speed... especially when that speed is a new speed.

    Msuper X vs. Tesla

    Autonomy = mileage or range. The Tesla and MSX should perform as the battery says so expect 50% from the MSX minus maybe 5-10% because of the difference in weight and size. What range are you getting on your Tesla? If you are getting 60km then you can expect close to 90km on the MSX. I don't see how the XL is a high wheel and the MSX is not?

    The struggle is real. You look happier on the Z10.

    I had to force myself to continue to ride seated. All I wanted to do was stand haha. I did a total of 5km seated yesterday so I will continue to practice and see where it goes.

    Z10 or 18XL?

    18XL is pretty much a perfect wheel with the Z10 being more of a novelty wheel. Those prices sound like Aliexpress prices. Which is totally fine. I ordered my 84v 1600Wh MSX from there when the price was $1500. If you had an infinite budget which wheels would you buy first? On the condition that you can only buy a new one after riding the current one for 1000 miles. If it does 95% of what you want 95% of the time then it's pretty much perfect. If they both cost the same which one would you buy?
