  1. @ED209 you sold me, my man. A 100V Monster it is. I hope ewheels still offers the seat and quick charger with their orders of the Monster.
  2. @ED209 this is also great info. I really appreciate it.
  3. @Nick McCutcheon thank you!! That really looks beautifully simple and effective. Awesome! I am going to get a Monster in the near future and a trolley is a must for me, so you helped me greatly. I was thinking of seriously getting a Dualtron Ultra or Thunder at first for power and range, but the cost and size of the premiere Dualtrons has turned me onto wanting Monster instead. You might have also ended my internal battling over which version of the Monster to get as well. Surely I can get 45-50 miles of range of moderate riding out of the 100V version. I ride alone for recreation and can't see myself needing anything past 50 miles at once.

    OFFICIAL FIRMWARE UPDATE NINEBOT ONE Z10

    I'm 1.0.4 and no update for mine to 1.0.5 when I checked two nights ago.
  5. @Nick McCutcheon it appears you have a trolley handle on the Monster in your profile avi. Can you please enlighten me as to how you got that on there and what trolley handle you used?
  6. My son got a chain driven, 1200wh - 36v lithium e-scooter for Xmas. It's just a toy for him to beat around the neighborhood and in the yard. It was cheap, but it has a high fun factor (especially on wet grass) as ol' Dad here has found out by playing around on it recently. So now I've been searching relentlessly for info on purchasing high speed, high quality electric kick scooters for myself. I am not going to be buying one as a primary need other than thrashing on it and having fun, but I want it to last a bit. I am wanting something with enough torque to achieve wheel spin in dirt/grass if that is even possible for an electric scooter with a 200 pound rider. I know that Dualtron seems to be the top brand to purchase, but there's so many other choices with similar specs out there. A particular brand that has also caught my attention is Nanrobot (https://www.nanrobot.com/ ) Their scooters seem to be a rip off of Dualtron but they offer very similar specs, and their RS7 model has the LG batteries that seem to be top choice. They have support here in the United States and offer spare parts for purchase as well. They seem to have good customer support as well because they have promptly answered all my question quickly and easily. I have no prior knowledge of these scooters so if any of you all have some info to share, I would be be very grateful.

    THE HELMET THREAD

    @Dave Frear I agree with you on the earbuds not being safe while riding, but if safety is a main concern for you then I can assure you from a very hard learned lesson that your choice of a cyclist open helmet can prove to be catastrophic. I would have had many missing teeth if not for me wearing a full faced helmet in my first big EUC crash. Wrecking a bicycle is not like wrecking an EUC at all.

    THE HELMET THREAD

    @Lutalo love the helmet! Think it will be really cool on your head when the warm weather comes back?

    Where does EUC adoption come from?

    @Alex_from_NZ I get the same positive reaction about my Z10 from the BMX/skater crowd of kids in my town as well.

    Where does EUC adoption come from?

    I think many of you are very spot on about proper marketing of these wheels in my opinion. If Ninebot or most importantly with huge brand recognition in the West, Segway went with a big marketing campaign for their One Z models in the US, then I truly believe you would see a lot of interest from more people. It just simply looks the part. If you look at the Z10 from a purely aesthetic stand point, it is LIGHT YEARS ahead of any other EUC and it's not even close. If you remove brand bias that many of you have you would openly admit that without question. Most people do not want to spend hard earned money on something ugly. Especially if that something is nearly or over $2000 and that person is still youthful. I saw the infamous @houseofjob / Tishawn Z10 review and now I am here with you all as a result. I will openly admit to you all that I most likely would've never bought an EUC if not for that video and the look of the Z10. Many longtime diehards seem to openly resent the Z10 just over the fact their favored brand doesn't garner that attention that the Z series does and the attention the Z gets on the front end is largely due to the fact it looks really cool.

    Seasonal Riding Conditions

    Obviously there is lots of talk of winter riding on the forum right now which has made me curious about other seasonal riding conditions. Winter here in Tennessee is mostly a rainy, muddy mess, but the cold temps are nothing compared to lots of you who live in the north. However, summer in the American South is a very hot and humid affair. Are there in negative effects to battery life or the wheel in general during hot weather conditions like there are for the cold?

    @eddiemoy my thoughts on the miniPRO as well. It was insanely easy to learn.

    Where does EUC adoption come from?

    @Terenig I bought a pair of Ninebot miniPROs when they released. I was watching repair videos for mine on YouTube this past summer when I stumbled on a @houseofjob EUC video. I have been falling down the rabbit hole ever faster since.

    Is Dualtron the only high speed scooter brand worth buying?

    @dwallersv when you bought your Thunder, did it come with all 5 of the different suspension rubbers?
  15. This makes me want a Monster even more.
  16. @Marty Backe your Monster speed run video gives the effect that you're going faster than 25mph... LOL
  17. @Marty Backe @houseofjob comfortable cruising speed is another factor I am looking for in this purchase as well that I didn't mention yet. Can the 84V model easily cruise at 30-35mph like the 100V? My Z10 seems sketchy past 25mph. One the appeals to my wanting a 22" wheel is to cruise fast for longer.
  18. @meepmeepmayerI live in Middle Tennessee. Big, steep hills are a factor here for sure and the use of this wheel would be on rough pavement & off road paths often, so the comment Marty made about the pedal hanger attachments giving lots of trouble really concerns me as well. Thanks for this info.
  19. @Marty Backe I've been in an email exchange about it with Jason. He's getting info and pics from his technician to send me so I will hopefully know more soon. He said someone recently traded it for an MSX so the previous owner could possibly be on this forum.
  20. The next question is if a 84V - 2400wH Monster with 240 miles on it, a seat, fast charger, and a one year warranty from eWheels for $1950 is a good deal or not?
  21. Also, what is the "Gotway Dance" and does this 100V Monster have that issue? Thanks in advance, y'all.
  22. Does anyone have an idea of the estimated range of the 100V-1845wH Monster?

    Ninebot Z Battery Mod 112 MJ1, 14s8p, 1410 Wh

    @Javierito Gar Costinha it does have batteries on both sides. I am not sure if they are equal in capacity.

    OFFICIAL FIRMWARE UPDATE NINEBOT ONE Z10

    @GyroRideRz I will try and remember to check mine when I am home later tonight. Any idea what the benefits of this new update has?

    Is Dualtron the only high speed scooter brand worth buying?

    @Siggy I feel fortunate to have the Z10 as my first wheel. It seems as though many who are used to "traditional" EUCs have a hard time with the physics of riding the Z10 being so much different than what they learned on. I got mine from a US distributor and haven't had any of the reported issues you hear about yet (KNOCK ON WOOD) with the "grey market - AlliExpress" units people get. I bypassed the suggestions of others to buy a beginner wheel to learn on. I knew I was going to buy a Z10 for certain and decided I'd rather learn on the wheel I wanted be on instead of wasting money on a wheel I'd grow out of quickly only to spend nearly $2k more right after. It was a very good decision I made in hindsight. I am going to take the same approach with this scooter purchase. I am going to save and buy the one I really want to own. Winter here in Tennessee is a soggy, muddy mess so I will be waiting until Spring is closer when I purchase it.
