    Is overheating bad for the internals?

    @esajwow thanks for the explanation. Nothing to argue with you about

    Is overheating bad for the internals?

    Thanks for the reply! @mrelwoodAt the end of the 18 mins it showed a max of 600 W used. My EUC can do over 2000 W. So I managed to overheat it, not because of drawing too much power. It just overheat physically from rolling back and forth, and told me to get off. Hopefully this wasn’t a mistake by pushing the limits. 🤙
  3. I have the INMOTION V10f. I did the exact same test @eddiemoy did, overheating the unicycle by idling (rocking back and forth in my living room). It took me 18 mins to reach 64C or 147F. I heard the fan "screaming" pretty loud in the end, and I thought if this was actually bad for the actual internal components? I know the V10f like any unicycles do prompt you to get off for safety reasons, but do high temperatures like these have any effects long term? Thanks

    INMOTION APP BACK ON THE APPLE STORE

    @Jason Jiao At the moment the app crashes as soon as you tilt it from portrait view to landscape. Before, when you turned the iphone, it would show the wheel stats (red dashboard view). Now there appears to be a bug because it crashes every time. The app is unusable at the moment, every small motion causes app to crash. I shouldn't have to use third party apps for my V10f. Thanks, hope its fixed soon

    V10f loose pedal

    I just received my first ever EUC, the Inmotion V10f. Started practicing in my somewhat large-ish living room because outside too much salt on the roads and will damage the wheel. So far awesome wheel, especially good since im only 62 kg/140 lbs. Too bad I can't go very far. Just after a day of practicing I noticed one of the pedals were extremely loose all of a sudden. I compared the opposite pedal which felt good and stiff to the very loose one, and saw that the little silver bearing was moving along the direction of the pedal (up and down), on the other pedal, none of the two were. I'm not "mechanically savvy" or anything, but it seems like the looseness could just be fixed with tightening the screw. I tightened the bottom screw underneath and it did the job, but the bearing is still moving (shown in picture) - It's more twitching kinda spin, not a smooth continues spin. I want to be sure everything works the way its supposed to, as this is only the second day now. Maybe some screw got loose because of vibrations? Or I fell on the carpet at 5 km/h and the screw slipped off... I don't know (you can see a little bit of a scrape on the left side of the pedal on the picture, but on carpet? hmm). I also noticed a blue paste surrounding the bottom screw when I took it out (blue loctite?). Maybe adding more of the paste could prevent it from loosening again? There are also the two screws on the front and back of the pedal, but I don't think those have anything to do with the problem. Maybe someone with their own V10(f) can take a look and confirm what’s going on... It might not seem like a big deal all this, but imagine the whole screw falling of entirely while riding in the future Can't wait to go outside, like most other riders waiting for the snow to melt away Thanks a lot.

    V10/V10F - Overload still an issue or solved?

    Yea, if you're going to get a V10, get the f version. For the weight of the wheel, you need torque. I've also noticed that the V10(f) got mostly negative first impressions at first. Since summer of 2018, people stopped reviewing the V10 because there was already a solid opinion formed about it (heavy, overloads)etc... But since then, INMOTION has fixed most of the issues and people didn't change their opinion on the V10. It's honestly an AMAZING wheel, very comparable to the KIngSong 18L(XL). I bought it because it has everything I'm looking for in a wheel. I only weigh 60 kg too...

    V10/V10F - Overload still an issue or solved?

    Ordered my v10f 2 months ago (still hasn't come) but I've done SOOOO much research and turns out that YES, much of the overloading issues have been solved with the new firmware updates. If you're a relatively light rider, you should be absolutely fine. I might be wrong... but this is what I know based on seeing other people's opinion on YouTube. I've noticed, much of the overloading issues happened around June and July both on the forums and on YouTube. The've recently died down; it's quiet. Maybe that's a good thing

    Upgrade from V8 - hilly country!

    Just curious why you disregarded the V10f. From what I heard it performs really well on hills, because It feels like an 18 inch rather than 16. Does not overpower, smooth ride... Just ordered my V10f . I feel like there is a lot of hate on his wheel, mainly due to its weight not being able to provide off-the-line acceleration. It is a very smooth, good-looking wheel. and especially if your looking for safety, this well check all the boxes. I bought it because I live in a city, and I read It was super stable at low speeds, and carving was good. Can't really speak from experience, as this is my very first wheel ever, super excited

    Which one?

    Could someone please explain this. It's a comment on one of the Youtube Videos. I feel like this guy wouldn't be just making this up... From his story, there seems to be no possible explanation. His story is one of the reasons why I get worried, I was originally going for the V8 but after seeing this in the comments... I found a good reason to choose on the V10f over the V8. At the same time, others are saying that the V8 is absolutely amazing. P.S. There is no protective cover available for the v10f which really sucks, especially since I'm a newbie

    Which one?

    Thank You so much @houseofjob. I'm apologize for the huge text, I thought it would fix itself after posting. Wow! You answered everything perfectly for me. You got me hooked on to the V10f. One more thing (you know I'm a huge freak when it comes to safety already) but honestly, this thing will definitely attract a lot of attention for sure. What's stopping some big guy from coming up to me, and asking me to step off the wheel to mug me . I am only still a teen (16) so...yea. Are there any good strategies to protect myself from theives when I'm out and about (maybe self defence) ideas? I was thinking of a GPS tracker in the worst case, even sound grenades exist to create a lot of noise (idk anymore *sigh*). I was thinking of nighttime riding as part of my commute, but I guess that's the riskiest. I'm not trying to overthink all the safety aspects of EUC's, but I can't help it really haha thanks again
  11. Iv’e been going through the forum and I love how much information you can get here. So here’s my dilemma: I really want to get a unicycle for myself, I’ve never owned one before. After months of hard research I came down to two options - INMOTION V8 and the INMOTION V10f. I know they’re two very different unicycles but I’ve been paranoid about safety on these things in general. I really don’t want to face plant on one of these, which is why the V10f is the best choice. It’s built like a tank compared to the V8, but is still Soooo much heavier (49 pounds!!!) Learning on the V10f will be hard as a newbie, but it seems like a few people have done it. Money isn’t something I worried about. If it costs more to not faceplant I’ll buy the V10. I’m not saying that the v8 is dangerous, but I feel that it might cutout going up a hill or something. I really fear a cutout on an EUC. I’ve read stories of people falling off out of nowhere, not because of overpowering, or anything rider related, it just simply stopped in the middle of riding on the road. I feel like the V10f would virtually prevent this from happening due to its redundancy features built in. I do live in a city but I’ll be mainly riding on sidewalks and around 10 km a day average. I’m consider myself pretty athletic too and weigh 135 pounds. I also live in Canada so temperatures drop low during winter. I’ll definitely be buying full protective gear, helmet, wrist guards, knee pads etc... So basically, I have 2 more days left of Black Friday sales and I need to decide quickly. V8 or V10f, DONT try to convince me to buy any other EUC plz thanks
