  1. Got a spare Z10 charger? Any amperage will do Located in Washington DC, willing to pay shipping
  2. I've been riding for almost 2 years and my mten3 looks like this, so that I don't have to worry about it while doing tricks. It makes the wheel more comfortable to grip and more durable for its lifetime. I hold mine together with bungee cords, so it's easy to open, if needed
  3. nope! It's way easier to scrape the pedals on my friends Tesla, than my mten3 with the pedals from an MSX
  4. It shares the tire size with the MSX - that is 18" x 3" (the diameter of the tire itself is about 19 inches when measured with a ruler, but on the side of the tire it says 18x3)
  5. I have personally owned both of these wheels and was grotesquely disappointed by the 18XL. Despite it's supposed reputation, mine had multiple, significant issues. In contrast, all of my Gotway wheels work flawlessly and have been insanely reliable despite substantial abuse. I own 2 MSXs now that I got rid of the wretched XL. It's not as flashy, but the MSX has the best ride quality of EUCs (sure, my opinion but I've tried many wheels) There are steps you can take to waterproof the MSX, but it has handled wet weather for myself and other riders for thousands of miles without issue. No wheel is "waterproof" unless you buy a few tubes of silicone and waterpoof tape The 18XL is barely in the same category
  6. aliexpress Intelligent walking store has best price for the 512wh
  7. Damn homie, that looks like a broken axle. Kinda different, but just as big of an oof This is why you inspect your wheels folks!!!
  8. I regularly get home from riding my 2200wh, while having to ride through low battery tiltback
  9. These are just YZpower chargers from Aliexpress. It literally says right on the label This is the official Aliexpress store, where you can likely get the best price (but not necessarily the best customer service) https://yzpower.fr.aliexpress.com/store/2217102?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.277e4e2aooYEPt
  10. I like the MSX pedals too and find that they scrape only when I ask them too higher tire pressure can add a lot of ground clearance
  11. I carry it with 3 fingers, but very rarely have to carry it up stairs. That said, I have the 2200wh so it weighs over 60lb (27kg), so I still manage
  12. I extended my beeper wire, routed it through a hole in the side panel, and moved the beeper to rest, just below the handle and pointed up at me. I can hear my 100V MSX 80% alarm, even at full battery
  13. I think I ran into you buying fast food the other day! Small world haha I wrapped the case in foam, which gives it substantial protection and makes it more comfortable on me legs. I also am using MSX pedals, so it does sorta have that look I highly recommend the mten3, as it teaches so much about riding. It's great for beginners as well as very experienced riders
  14. any chance you have a link or exact part number for this tube?
  15. I just installed the mten3 tire recommended by Marty, and now my wheel is a mini MSX. version 2 I put together this video to show how I used zip ties to compress the tire. This made it super duper easy to remove and then install by just prying with a flathead screwdriver ------REVIEW------ This tire carves amazingly and handles superbly. It is super rigid and will definitely support all the bumping and tricks I do. It also feels like it'll last a long time. I expect 2k miles Range seems about the same Works fine in wet weather
  16. My MSX 100v buzzer sits right below my handle, on the outside of the wheel. I can hear the 80% beeps even at a full battery, all the way up to 40mph I have also spliced in an LED on my 84v MSX that blinks at the same frequency as the beeping.
  17. $12 on ebay: SANYO Fan 109P0405H901 DC 5V 0.16A https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-PCS-SANYO-Fan-109P0405H901-DC-5V-0-16A-4010-4CM-3-PIN/254012945141?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  18. tense your quad muscles to absorb the wobbles from braking
  19. possibly working/repairable but probably not. Yes, there was some water in the motor, but it was opened and drained I'm visiting NYC on Saturday/Sunday. Please let me know if you're truly interested!
  20. For sale is the remains of my friend's Nikola 100V which was tragically dropped underwater. Shipping is included in the price, but local pickup preferred. Batteries are not available Pictures: https://imgur.com/a/00yaS8c In your purchase, you will receive: Inner Shell - without blemish Trolley Handle - excellent condition Motor + Pedal Hangers Tire + Tube (300 miles of use) Motherboard + wiring + Voltage screen Lift Sensor (untested)
  21. The best place to start would be the Self Balancing Unicycle (SBU) as this seems most similar to your design. I personally would love one, though making our current hobby even more dangerous seems like mostly a "for-fun" project
  22. Wow! some folks like rectangular tires. I like as much PSI as I can handle because it gives more range and better handling. At 170lb, I like 42PSI and I only go lower for offroading. Brand new tires tend to be a bit too rounded and need some wear-in before being truly stable For your rider weight, I would consider 30PSI to be lowest I'd go. Lower, and you're risking damage to the rim
