  1. Dear all, My 12 month warranty struggle with supplier. Paid £825 ($1005) Inc Shipping. Unit: Kingsong 14C (800W|680Wh) Purchase Date: 6th August 2015 Perfect for 25 weeks. Ridden for 21 weeks (minus 2 weeks holiday + 2 weeks working away) Running cost / 21 weeks £39 per week. (approx $47) Previously owned: Ips - 1000+ miles no issues. Ninebot one - 1000+ miles no issues. Powerbrick failed - Emailed supplier October 2015. Email reply from Supplier (Company director) 'The first batch was pretty shoddy' 'Half of the chargers were defective out of the box' Unit fault- Emailed supplier 2nd Feb 2016. Scrapping from wheel, a large number of images sent to supplier showing foot pedal rubbing against wheel. Email reply from Supplier (Company director) 'is it a slightly bent axle causing the problem?' 'can it be hammer back into shape?' 'A bit of force should do the trick. You should be able to wedge it free by carefully using a chisel or flat head of the screwdriver.' Centre Axle Close up Unfortunately, mid Feb i was diagnosed with a seriously illness, in and out of hospital, doctors appointments... the Kingsong was the last thing on my mind. In June, after a number of emails from the supplier one of which i clearly remember asking him to take the unit back and rebuild it for me, it had been a long time since the unit had been dismantled, this request was ignored, the replacement wheel arrived 1 or 2 days later, after refusing to pay the shipping cost of £25. After another load of trips too and from hospital, doctors, nurses, etc. finally, I got around to fitting the 'new' motor, albeit some time later. Read and re-read the supplied manual several times The rebuild: Started out full of promise, rebuilt the unit in around 2 hours (took my time) Powered the unit up after fitting the very tight side panels, all the lights worked.The unit only works when it is moved 45 degrees to left or right. contacted supplier again, new board sent out - refitted same issue. Emails sent to king song 5x - Number of responses Zero Will post more images later for those of you who want to see in more details what $1005 buys you. To be continued.....
  2. Hi all, Purchased King song 14c (800w) from Wheelgo late 2015, without warning the axle cracked approximately 3 months later. Unfortunately Wheelgo no longer trade from the UK, Jason was kind enough to send me the complete service manual, but unfortunately his suggestion to 'hammer it back' was never going to work. Dispite a number of emails to http://www.szkingsong.com/ they do not appear to be able to reply. Cost £895 Broken axle 3 months later cost/ time = £298 a month. I am also lucky enough to own an ips and ninebot, had no issues with these units. Liam

  4. Hello, I'm going to LA next week and I wonder if there's an EUC rental place at Santa Monica? I own a KS18S and a Mten3 back in Utah and I can't take them on the plane. Thanks!
  5. I love my Kingsong 16s. Been riding it for about 2 weeks... But now my wife (who rides the NineBot 1C+ cant catch up with me) so am looking for something faster for her. So I found this Tesla. Damn... Speed is 33+ MPH. Not sure if I have the nerve to go that fast on 1 wheel. But sure would be nice to have that ability. And the 16 inch is preferred to me. Ewheels is offering a preorder of the 1080WH model. Am not sure if I would need that much juice since my outings normally only for 2-3.. may be 4 hours.. So I think 680WH model sounds more like what I am interested in. . Question is... What am I giving up going with the 680 WH 67.2V battery rather than the 1080WH/84V ? Quick look at the specs .. nothing indicates that I am giving up that max speed of 33+ MPH... Any thoughts ? Jason McNiels... if you see this.. I'd love to hear your reason for not offering the 680WH model at Ewheels GotwayAmerica has both models .. Price difference is about $400 .. pretty sizable difference. And for what I need (cruising around parks for 3-4 hours) I think 680WH should be sufficient and save me that $400 price difference.. Thanks in advance.
  6. Alright, after a couple years of owning the SoloWheel Xtreme, and many other electric unicycles, I gotta say, by far, that the Solowheel is the most difficult to ride, by a very large margin. There is no doubt in my mind that anyone used to riding hard settings on wheels such as GotWay models and similar would not be able to ride my Solowheel, at all. Why? Well it's simple, the MASSIVE lean. Accelerating/decelerating, my body leans 45 degrees! Compared to my Gotways which have no lean while moving. Or with King Song which has only like a 5 degree lean, no more. My Xtreme is very weak compared to my other wheels, such as the GW Mten3 and the GW Monster, but believe me, riding the Xtreme is SCARY. Oh boy... It leans like a motherfucker! Jumping down curbs with this wheel is just off the table.
  7. Hey all, just wanted to ask if it`s a problem when i drive my KS18 at the beach - not directly in the sand - were on a north sea island called "Borkum" in Germany for holiday (probably somebody knows it) and we have a lot of pavement besides the beach, but the sand is very fine and the wind spreads it also on the pavement. So it`s important to me if my KS 18AY+ would have any problems with sand. If it´s a problem i will not drive here...anybody experienced driving the euc on sandy roads? Thanks in advance
  8. https://worldbicyclerelief.org/en/ and there are many other similar bicycle-oriented humanitarian efforts. but we all know, here at least, which of the two to go with instead of wringing his panties along with putin over the AI apocalypse, mr. musk should devote part of his efforts, since batteries are a huge part of his game, to the development and permeation of awesome eucs and charging centers throughout the world!
  9. A buddy of mine has been riding his Ninebot Mini Pro daily for more than a year and he always complained about how slow and annoying because of the alarm and tiltback. Recently, he switched to EUC. He bought a BNIB Ninebot One E+ with NO modification at all. After learning and riding it for about a month later, out of curiosity I asked him whether he likes it or not, since I know that a Ninebot One E+ normally is not fast enough for regular cruising. But I was surprised when he didn't have any complain about its speed at all besides of the battery capacity, of course. Not even complained about any alarm / tiltback. At first, I didn't believe him. But when he showed me this... should I worry about him having a defective unit or happy for him for having the fastest Ninebot One E+ on earth?
  10. Hi guys, Looking for some advice really. Had my first crash today... Which I knew I would and was inevitable really. So firstly, I've set my tiltback to 42kmh using the Gotway app and disabled the first alarm. I was riding in a straight line, in a tarmac carpark and my Msuper decided it was going to chuck me off. I didn't hit any bumps, neither did my alarms go off. I didn't feel the tilt back come into play either so I was wondering if anyone knows the answer as to why I came off? I was sure the tilt back would let me know when I was getting too fast? The only thing I think it could be, was too fast acceleration?? Is that a thing? Secondly, can anyone give me advice with repairs? My Trolley handle came out as it was bouncing across the car park and has bent and will not retract. Annoyed! Also, when I turn on my wheel now, it seems to slowly tilt itself backwards when stationary? Any ideas would be a great help. Also, the wheel doesn't sit central. For the record, I rode it home fine, just a bit shook with some minor injuries. Luckily my wrist guards saved me, other than that I'm injured where there was no protection. Lesson learned. Please help, hate that I've mashed up my wheel after 2 weeks! Thank you!

    My First EUC!

    Hi guys, I've been following this forum for about 3 months, and decided it was about time I signed up and introduced myself. My name is Liam, 26, from Rugby, England. My post is really is to thank you all for the information that you've provided here, in various threads, as without it, I wouldn't have taken the plunge and bought my brand new Gotway Msuper V3! Going to share my experience so far... My EUC lifestyle started awfully, with an injury! I was so excited to have picked it up, I couldn't wait to have a go. Went out to play squash the next morning with the intention of taking it down the local park for a practice afterwards and ripped a muscle in my back playing bloody squash! 3 weeks my Gotway was here unused, but it just made my recovery quicker. Up and about and 15 minutes in I was rolling around the park at baby speeds. Covered in protection, I decided to go visit my Granddad at the cemetery and show him my new gadget. After an hour of riding around large and small pathways, over unmade gravel roads and through narrow gates and fences, I had it. I hear all kinds of stories about beginners and their adventures and I feel pretty lucky to be riding confidently around everywhere now. Only 5 hours ride time, but feel as though I've had my EUC years! Learning on a 18" Msuper was relatively easy. I felt stable and secure in no time at all, but also, I have never tried anything else. No injuries as of yet, apart from the pads rubbing my legs, but fully expecting to come off at some point. I have found the best way to look after yourself and your wheel, is to always remember the price! You don't want your expensive gadget smashing its way down the road like a drunken monkey! Happy riding! Liam

  15. I am currently working on a project that is focused on different ways to increase overall awareness of personal electric vehicles including electric unicycles. I have created a very simple 12 question anonymous survey on typeform and it would be very helpful to get a better understanding of other early adopters of the EU to move forward with project. ( https://early-eu-adopters.typeform.com/to/DXnrES ) It is called the "EU Early Adopter Survey".
  16. Hi, everyone! This is my first post here (and certainly not my last one ;-) ). I'm Justina and I've fallen in love with electric unicycles. It all began from curiosity "how can I improve my daily commute?", and when I bought my first EUC, it instantly became my hobby. Then I met some local enthusiasts and our small group started growing. After a while we started a project together that over time has become www.ElectricUnicycles.eu Our mission is to increase people's awareness of electric unicycles and show them it is not a gadget or a prototype - it is the best way of personal transportation in the world. And it's available now, everywhere! Our goal is to change people's thinking and replace their bicycles with electric unicycles, for daily commute. We live in the 21th century, why do we still use technology that hasn't changed from 200 years? It's time for a change, for people to know about EUCs! I create videos for our YouTube channel (anybody has seen my vids before?), where I try to help you as much as I can - either with choosing the righ wheel, or to do typical stuff like changing the tyre. We have just added new general videos with real life scenarios with electric unicycle usage: Electric unicycle vs bicycle - for commuting - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmmPaLxP4pk Electric unicycle for meetings - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lDgp59N3ZU If you like them, feel free to share! Many more coming soon! -------------------- Besides this, we also have an European shop with only one category: electric unicycles. We believe this is superior to any two wheelers or scooters and everyone can learn how to ride it, just how everyone had to learn riding a bicycle as a kid - we just don't remember this now. I have a huge €100 discount for all forum members, for the following electric unicycles: * 2017 KingSong KS-16S (840 Wh) is €1514 for forum members, * 2017 Inmotion V8 (480 Wh) with carbon fibre-like kit is €982 for forum members, * 2017 KingSong KS-16C face-lift (680 Wh) is €1075 for forum members, * 2017 KingSong KS-14D (420 Wh) is €886 for forum members. Heads up! We do not collaborate with everyone. We collaborate with the top league manufacturers exclusively, to deliver the best electric unicycles only. Everything comes with a 2-year warranty, a gift, and of course functional mobile app. Dispatch up to 24 hours if not stated otherwise on the site. Do you live outside Europe? Contact me.

  17. I have been riding my kingsong 14c for a few months and It drove me crazy how tiny the pedals are. Obviously, I am not the only person who thinks this. Used 1/4 inch think redwood planks, VHB mounting tape, gorilla glue tape and covered it all with grip tape. It ride so nicely now. Center of gravity is a little bit high, but its not bad. Ankles do not hurt and its just great. Main piece of wood is 10 inches by 4.5 inches. I also made a video showing it all:
  18. The sound I'm trying to recreate is: Baseball Card in Rear Bicycle Spokes held on by a clothes pin -- sound effect. Dirt bike / motorcycle sound effect. Attempt #1: Laminated card stock. Which has since fallen away to leave just plastic. I slipped the laminate into the crevice and hot glued it. Attempt #2: I tried using a soda can but cannot get it to stay put against the case lip. I just had an idea to put the can INSIDE the case on top dead center.
  19. If you're in the NYC area this weekend, please join us for a group ride from Central Park West / Columbus Circle, across the George Washington Bridge into New Jersey for All You Can Eat Korean BBQ. All e-rideables welcome! More information on the FB event description below: https://www.facebook.com/events/1835137346724309
  20. I wonder how many years the motherboard is supposed to stay fit and strong , do I wear it out and should change to a new one after 100000 km or more less ? When I go fishing on my Kingsong 18A then I have short peaks up yo 70 amps , normaly its around 20 amps , upphill downhill measured today on a mountain , asphalt road up to 2000 w 70x65 should teoretically mean 4450 watt but I didnt look at my wheellog at the time , I wish for further development so it records volt to. I use wheellog every day and I like it. So many parameters , can the battery pack handle the power or should I add more batteries ? What is the maximum power the motherboard can give ? Cables , dimension ? I touch the motor after a hard driving but its not hot , mostly similar to body temp , sometimes a little bit more The better I know how to drive it the more power I expect from it , in the beginning I was driving like a pussy-cat now its more on the limit and I look forward to new stronger models ment for traffic as an alternativ to bicycles cars , i'm happy with my euc but I cant understand how a friend here could go up and down the same mountain with a noname 210w motor 132wh battery euc without falling

  22. After 5 hours of learning to ride my Ninebot One E+, this is the state my ankles are in: It's so painful to get on and off now that I have made some cheap ankle guards using materials I had at home. These are made from foam sheet that has thin plastic on one side, some Baltic birch plywood and some elastic velcro straps from the dollar store. These are worn on the inner ankles to protect against the constant pressure of the EUC when getting on and off and turning.
  23. After not being on the E+ for so long I finally had to get back on it. But I realized I was only going 22km before pedal tilt back. I remember being able to go 24.8km before tilt back...did that happen? Or did an update decrease the speed?
  24. Hindley, Wigan, new group of euc riders, Hindley, SQ wheels, EUC group, we welcome anyone who wants to ride in our area, local or not ?
