    Falling on Z10

    It appears I damaged heavily a tenton in my shoulder, so at least 2 weeks recovery. I can't move my damn arm. Considering the fall and my face touching the ground (and no helmet [usually I wear one, yesterday I was fealling comfy) I am lucky. New safety rules from now on. First thing to do when on a wheel again to test the very same spot on ks16 with armor :-)

    Falling on Z10

    Let's wait a week I am under repair ... I agree that you get to know the wheel, and what happened to me is that I fell in a flat road with just one f*cking bump you could not see. So I was unprepared. As I said in the first post, I just have the feeling that ks16s would save me the fall under the same exact circumstances I will also try the very same spot with ks

    Falling on Z10

    I fell with about 20km/h (estimation). Also the road in the picture is like breakfast for ks16s vs Z10 at the same speed.

    Falling on Z10

    I will try measuring current pressure and steaming of some air to lower pressure. But of my experience with the other wheels, I don't expect Z10 to change so much. It will still pull hard to the low side of an irregularity and what I also know well is that people will keep a false belief due to fear of buyers remorse (Marty this is not for you but for some people I know having actually the same problems with Z10 and still claiming the wheel is nice etc). To state the obvious, I did not start this thread as a generic "Let's hate the Z10" thread but to explain my thoughts mostly on safety and hear other people's opinions.

    Falling on Z10

    Well, I am heavy, 115Kgr. I don't know the pressure I am riding it, I use it as arrived and yes it's very very bouncy, the tire is rock solid. Should I lower the pressure? Would that help? At first I could not turn the wheel but then I learned to do so and it's a joy. BUT when you ride a street like this one in the photo the wheel goes out of control. Also on pavement where the tiles are uneven, ks16s is ridable, z10 is not. It tips on the side. Ian from Speedy feet made the same observation. Also he noted that inflating helps with steering. I guess not with stability. Also I got once the wobble at 40+ km and scared the shit out of me. Happily didn't fall then, managed to brake. Unless this behaviour gets somehow better (maybe with less air pressure?) the wheel is dangerous from my point of view.

    Falling on Z10

    Well, I have 400 km+ on E1, 1200+ km on KS16S, 300Km on Z10 experience, Today was a bad day (but a good bad day in the same time, I think I'm not hurt). A small bump in a street made me fell off the wheel. My ego is hurt mostly and I hope I won't wake up to any underlying/hidden injuries. I kissed the ground, thankfully everything seems in place. What I am thinking is that this bump would not throw me off If I was on KS16S. Someday I will test the very same spot on KS16S but as for Z10, I am not riding this s**t anymore, at least not in the city. It's not rideable except the terrain is absolutely flat, and when flat is a nice experience, but dangerous otherwise.

    Μπερδέυτηκα άσχημα. Ηθελα να προτείνω Κυριακή 14 και πρότεινα 21. Μέγα λάθος. Οπως και να έχει αν δεν βρέχει αυτή την κυριακή θα κατέβω. Φυσικά ισχύει και για 21!!!!!!!!!

    Με τον καιρό μάλλον θα την φάμε.... Κάθε μέρα λέει όχι βροχές και τελικά βρέχει. Και το windy (νομίζω) δίνει βροχή για κυριακή μεσημέρι.

    Το πρώτο δεν λέει μεταφορικά (γενικά λέει ότι δεν το στέλνει), και το δεύτερο έχει μεταφορικά 32Ε. Και υποθέτω ότι επειδή η ρόδα είναι 15 κιλά πακεταρισμένη για Ελλάδα θα σου ζήταγε κι'αλλα χρήματα, δεν φτάνουν τα 32Ε (αν είσαι Ελλάδα). Πολύ καλές τιμές απλά με το ebay δεν ξέρεις τι παίρνεις. Λογικά θα βρεις και άλλα τέτοια auctions, απλά συνυπολόγισε και τα μεταφορικά (ρίξε και μια ερώτηση καλού κακού για την χώρα σου πόσο κοστίζει η μεταφορά).
