  1. Have you been able to replicate your initial findings? Remember you can always downgrade if you're not pleased with the new FW
  2. Because then they'd only get to sell two variations of the EX: the suspension EX and the suspensionless EX. This way, aside from the suspension EX, they can release the non-suspension EX-RS-motor version and a little further down the road (in 3 months tops, based on their recent activity?), the non-suspension EX-EX-motor, which of course, is an upgrade compared to the non-suspension EX with the RS motor. Wait, there might be more variations to be had here...EX-RS-HT and EX-RS-HS.... But how long till the RS with an EX motor? And the suspension EX-RS-HS and suspension EX-RS-HT? Anyone
  3. Haha no problem. It was about time I showed my face around here and gave @Seba a bit of a hand with FAQs. After all, I'm the one who started writing the documentation and then parked the project out of lack of time. But still, I blame @Seba for developing faster than I'm able to keep up Do take into account that battery percentage is ultimately just an estimation and not an exact science. As an example, your wheel's battery percentage drops when under load, increases when braking, etc. Or it might display 70% on connection, after not using it for several days, and drop swiftly to 65% if y
  4. Haha I bet! The weather is frankly hard to beat (although in summer I often fantasize with the North pole...) Anytime! I do way too much solo riding!
  5. Can you somehow work that magic into real life? I need to start making time to drop by here more often, your Photoshopping has been missed!
  6. It's definitely trickier than any mountain bike tire I've ever changed a tire on. Since I suspect my flat stemmed from an incorrectly seated tire, I put quite a bit of time into getting it to seat properly. I partially inflated the tube so it would hold its shape (as with any tire change), stuck it in the tire, then stuck the valve in the hole in the rim, making sure it was all the way in. Work the tire into place, checked the tube wasn't pinched anywhere, then inflated. Tire line was too low in some places, too high around the valve area. Deflated a little, worked it, found the tube was sligh
  7. Last weekend, taking advantage of the good weather
  8. Ah man, that sucks! Hope your Sherman is up and running soon! Honestly, I agree that we knowingly get ourselves into this (except first-time buyers) and have to own that and also take responsibility for the fact that if they keep pulling this crap on us it's because we keep buying their products--we do bring it onto ourselves... On the other hand, I've only been riding for a little over two years and in that time I've seen a steep fall in quality. I started with a V8 which is a quality wheel, then upgraded to a KS18XL, which in IMHO is the last quality wheel KS made, up the their for
  9. For dayltime running lights I'd ideally like something with an outer ring or line of white LEDs that don't flash and are just for visibility, more like on the V11, as orange can also get me into trouble here. Has anyone found anything of the sort?
  10. I've ridden mine in rain too without issues, and I haven't done anything to improve the LCD sealing. Yeah I have to say it's a better climber than one would expect based on how heavy it is; as you said, not a fast climber, but it does a decent enough job. And I agree, downhill control is awesome!
  11. Finished the tube change without setting anything on fire!!! Man was that a pain in the ass...especially getting the roll bars off, but getting the motor cables back in was pretty tedious too. Must have taken me 3h in total (took more than 1/2h to get the roll bars off, also spent quite a while making sure the tire was seated properly). A few observations: - There was no long large slit or snake bites on the tire, so it was the valve. I'm not sure if it was a defective valve or an incorrectly seated tire, but "hurrah" for Chinese QC... 😓 - On that note, Veteran's assembly l
  12. Open EUC World and make sure your wheel is connected. Make sure you aren't recording a tour or logging data (the CSV icon on the main screen should be white; if it's green, just tap on it to stop data logging). Go to settings >> General settings >> Battery, and choose the "Standard" algorithm instead of the "optimized" one.
  13. Man is this a pain in the ass! The roll bar is a nightmare to remove. I'm finally at the stage where I should be able to remove the wheel/motor but the bastard won't come out. Looks like I'm going to have to remove the white shrink wrap from all the wires... Or could I be missing something? It's 6 hex screws per side right? How tedious was is to get the wires back in when reassembling? Edit: got it. I was being too gentle... 😅 Whoever designed this should be forced to do everyone's tire changes...
  14. Thanks @null! Am off to the DIY store to buy some goop!
  15. A few weeks ago I was going around a roundabout in a deserted residential area when the tire suddenly went soft, the wheel pivoted, the pedal scraped against the asphalt and I was ejected from the wheel. Luckily, I was riding slowly and was able to run it off. The wheel has its first battle scars though... When I picked it up the tire was completely flat. I couldn't find any puncture marks and the tire hadn't been getting softer over time; I was riding at 28 PSI, so not too low, not too high (max. pressure stated on the tire is 33 PSI), I was riding on smooth asphalt and hadn't
