  1. It would be great to know if KS is working on 1.08...is anyone giving them direct feedback? For all we know, they may think everyone is happy with 1.07 and may not be really working on anything. So far it seems like all the feedback about 1.07 is all personal opinion and nothing concrete other than the beeping introduced by fast chargers > 4A. For now, I'm sticking with 1.05 until I see some actual data saying that the wheel's response and battery life is better and the throttling thresholds introduced is something I can live with. I would like the other bug fixes pertaining to lighting, but I can live without it. 1.07 doesn't seem bad by any means, but there's really nothing in the release driving me to update. Like I've mentioned in one of my earlier posts, I've taken my wheel to max speed a lot and have ridden it until the battery is dry without worry. Hopefully my luck will not run out, but so far 1.05 has been extremely fast, responsive and safe for me.
  2. I’ll press my luck. I’ve run my wheel dry down to a painful 57v while it’s bucking like a bull and haven’t landed on my face yet. I’m holding out for 1.08. I don’t want my wheel to beep like crazy while I’m trying to use my 5A quick charger. The whole idea is to use your quick charger in public places on long ride days and not annoy everyone in the establishment.
  3. There are about a dozen riders from Philly and suburbs, but not all of them visit the forums regularly so it’s hard to pull everyone together to ride. You have to ping everyone consistently through any means possible to make it happen. @jas3 any word on pulling together the Philly chapter of the Glydiators? I think it would help if everyone was pulled into a telegram group?
  4. For those of you who are flying in from out of state.. Have you figured out a place to stay yet? @The Fat Unicyclist @OUNCESMUSIC
  5. @The Fat Unicyclist Will you have any 16X covers avail at the EUC games?
  6. Yeah, I'm still on 1.05. I'm going to hold on and wait until the official 1.07 comes out which will hopefully be the happy mid-way point for speed/throttling and safety.
  7. I'm with you.. My 16X is amazing. Haven't had a single problem with it. No random tiltbacks or dumping me off. I hit 30mph quite a bit and don't even realize I'm doing it because the ride is so smooth. When the switching of the tire discussion started, I was initially interested, but the more I rode the stock tire I loved it more and more. The speed, range, stability and quietness is bar none. I feel I can really carve and express myself on this wheel and it's a damn party to ride. I really wish it was the same for everyone else.
  8. Jason from eWheels got a batch of 25 in earlier this week. I've snagged one and have taken a few short rides with it. My first impression is that it's very comfortable, but due to the overall height of the 16X, may be best suited for shorter folks. Not sure if this is the case for all wheels with seats, but to mount the seat I find myself first riding at a reasonable speed, put my hand on the front of the seat and then hop back to get a good position on it. Once seated, you're all good, but you first have to hop back to get on correctly - No big deal, but you can't just easily sit down from a standing position. Again, it's very thick, supportive and comfortable. I like it.
  9. This is normal behavior for a V8 and doesn’t indicate there is an electrical issue or that you’ll get a random power shutoff. Try again and once it’s powered on, it will stay on.
  10. Glad you survived without too much damage! Just wish we could see the data on this one to know root cause. The fact that you heard "please decelerate" right after falling may indicate your wheel lost traction on the dirt surface and spun out well above 45kph. I've been riding around like a hellion on v1.05 and I weigh 65kg. I was thinking I was "more safe" as I'm a light rider! I'm certain I've surpassed 27mph < 72% battery many times, but only on smooth roads and not while riding over loose dirt.
  11. The EUC does appear to grab a dogs attention. Hopefully the tweak in 1.07 will either slightly adjust the frequency that doesn't make it sound like a dog whistle OR give us the raw acceleration that we need to outrun them!
  12. Ha you should try playing Two Live Crew from your 16X! Maybe you can offend some folks! 😛
