  1. Bummer. Apart from which brand it caused...
  2. Hope it's not an April 1st issue, but today I visited my chicway store bookmark and saw following announcement: https://www.chicway.shop/pro-sale-chicway-ct16_p0346.html Can anybody consider what's it all about? Chicway is not well known as a manufacturer I suppose. New kid on the block maybe or some new marketing approach? Please make me smarter
  3. I've already been convinced. I bridged the whole winter break riding my mten3 in the basement - that's been possible indeed
  4. Yes and no I suppose. With increasing battery packs weight goes up at any type of wheel during the last years though suspension adds an extra ballpark number about 20%. Nowadays anything below 1000 Wh is considered as totally unsafe for any type of use as common sense . On the downside you have to accept that any wheel meeting those specs goes towards the heavy side more and more. In the good ol´ days (TM) we were riding 16" Ninebots with 340 Wh at only 13,8 kg / 30 lbs. but were thrown off at the lightest longer lasting incline instead . But I fully agree to comments above, a NS wheel c
  5. The original question makes me smile a bit. For years, users racked their brains about what it would be like to ride a suspended wheel. It was said that it was too expensive, too heavy and, moreover, it had always been that way. With the appearance of new users - fortunately - the question is turned upside down. In any case, it is a valid objection I think. I don't know if it has ever been tried, but to experience (or endure) the feeling of an unsuspended EUC, it should be enough to empty the lower chamber of the V11 and charge the upper (negative) chamber with a little pressure. That way
  6. Not my video but funny content from @Irina about crazy halloween ride in Wladiwastok. Long time no see her in here although that´s sad. She has small but funny channel on YT, I would recommend it.
  7. That's strange, indeed. Although the offical pages from Gotway aka Kebye aka Begode still list the old specs of 512 Wh/84V. Even well known Ali shops claim same information. I presume Jason has better sources for that so maybe a switch in battery manufacturer took place. Or might this point towards a change towards 21700 technology? Just guessing, really don't know...
  8. Found another source on ali (on pre order at least). Description says it suits Gotway, Veteran and Inmotion V11 wheels as well. Type in search phrase "honeycomb pedals" on ali main page and you will be directed to Chicway store: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005001501101865.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.7c9d44388bDoI4&algo_pvid=6bee9079-3518-4701-ab5e-490decf8401e&algo_expid=6bee9079-3518-4701-ab5e-490decf8401e-0&btsid=0b0a182b16017531739225364eda36&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_,searchweb201603_ Chicway has also a store on it´s own where you can find th
  9. Are you looking for a pair of these ones: https://eucsale.com/gotway-msp-monster-nikola-sport-pedals-set.html ? At least in Europe they seem to be available though I don´t have experience with this seller. Also I don´t know if shipment to your location is a real option costwise . As an alternate solution you might google for "Hextech pedals" and find similar in your area with some luck...
  10. You might find some more inspiration from this former thread if you´re interested: But the upside/down balcony flower pot shown above is my all-time favourite . Fits on nearly eyerything except Z10 and is unbeatable cheap.
  11. Thank you for that amazing x-ray view. Might be your hidden superpower ? Although I consider getting one of these for replacement of my sloppy upper pads. Here´s a photo how it will look on a real 18L/XL:
  12. Looking good . Can you give us a source please where to get them?
  13. Returning briefly back to the beginning: Does anyone know how the app identifies a Chinese wheel abroad? In my understanding, this can actually only be done via the serial number, otherwise the overseas wheels are certainly identical. I found this (elder) post around here concerning the SN composition: If someone succeeded in entering a "political correct" serial number for an evil Ali device (e.g. via the Soft Tuner app) we might find a way out of this mess , or am I wrong? First of all, I followed @mrelwood 's hint and deleted the toxic KS app from my phone to be safe, thx again.
  14. At 1st sorry for the guy whom it happened to. I hope he will get well soon somehow. I totally agree to what @Marty Backe said above. When I started riding 2 years ago on an (outdated) NB1E+ I used a dull bicycle helmet and Walmart style hand and knee protection. When I got my first "adult" EUC KS-18L I suddently realized in what danger zone I´ve been riding even at same speeds before. Since then I allways use a FF helmet (TSG Pass in my case) and serious Triple8 protection stuff. With great EUC power comes great responsibility.
  15. I can do it with pleasure, but first of all I probably have to learn how to jump without crashing . But I can add a few pictures if I have assembled them. If only it weren't so cold in my garage now...
