  1. I've been riding the V5F+ for almost a year, and it's been great for recreation but I'm looking for something with more distance capability for my daily commute. I'm trying to find something with a bit more top speed to, if at least as a buffer to prevent sudden slowing, and preferably not too big and bulky. Finally, it needs to be reliable and safe. I've heard about issues with Gotway ACM involving the pedal breaking, so I'm wary of that one. Please let me know of any recommendations for these criteria for less than $3k, (preferably less than $1.5k if possible). Thanks!
  2. I have always been attracted more to endurance events than speed events. I have to say, however, 3.39 into the video is like the call of the wild. I am sooooo glad I am not young and foolish anymore .. I think. I should have mentioned initially Tishawn is on a 100V Monster, and the rider doing the video is on a "Kaly" ESK8.
  3. How cool would it be to set aside one weekend a year for everyone to meet up in one location ?? Pick a city each year and we all descend upon it like an electric plague . Lol. @outcast00096 you’re “top 5 people you’d like to ride with” post got me thinking ..why not make our dreams a reality !
  4. Hello everyone, After 2500 km with my S2 and a flat tire, I decided to do some work on my S2 like deep cleaning, new paint, try to remove all the damm anti poncture traces and grease the bearings. I would like to know if there's specials things to know before opening the motor. The wheel is IP54 so I'm wondering if there's spi joints to change or anythings special to know before opening it ☺️ Thanks
  5. Just here to give my opinions on the Ninebot Mini and why its a more dangerous than any other EUCs and see if anyone else here agrees with me. The argument: Last year before Christmas I bought a Ninebot Mini I had a go on it and realized not only was it less fun because you were required to go in a straight line but significantly more dangerous over riding any EUC. In fact I think the Mini should be speed limited to only 10-12km/h max and not 18! When riding at higher speeds and the floor is uneven you are having to adjust your body to the way the road is. For example when you ride on a slope where your only ONE of your wheels are lower or higher you would have to tilt to the direction that is higher to remain balance. For eg: If you are riding on the side walk and on your left there is a wheel chair ramp making the left wheel dip lower than the right wheel for a short bit you will have to quickly adjust your body to the right so remain balance if you stood still you will lose control. The other concern is that when you do so to maintain your centre of gravity you could knock that pole that controls the left or right, this has also become a major issue when riding on uneven surfaces. Unlike riding on an EUC the centre of gravity is between your foot at the point where the wheel hits the floor making it easy to glide over rougher terrains. On the Ninebot mini you are forced to adjust your body to the way the terrain is much more than what is required from an EUC. The benefit however of the Ninebot Mini is that you are able to pick it up quickly, and stand in place really easily. In short...after owning the Ninebot Mini I quickly sold it(without even owning it for 2 weeks) knowing the dangers that would possess with it and made a hefty profit during the Christmas season. My first actual post on the forum, thanks for reading Jack
  6. With the higher speed monster, tesla, msuper, has anyone got rid their cars yet?
  7. Hey guys! I am still alive first and foremost. Still ride near every day. My appearance here has been pretty thin lately. Between work and the store I was staying busy, probably too busy, and to add to the madness I found out I am having what will be my first child in October! Hype! If you are local you may know we are still here. We have a small community of riders that is growing. We have people who rely solely on EUC for transport in our town, which to me is amazing. It is a blast. We are doing a little restructuring with inventory. We have a small mountain of MCM4's because people love them here. We brought the price down online because they are no longer competing online with our IPS wheels which will still be available as a local only item. We are also going to be out of the store for October, a much needed half vacation (I still work full time) as I get things ready for the baby and finish up a couple small projects. The online store orders will go out as usual and repairs and pickup arrangements haven't changed. We are going to be changing the store layout, bringing in more OneSeven Merch and T's (People seem to love our shirts and logo and we want to bring more of that online). Last of all thank you to the entire forum and those who have helped us with the store. Most of our orders have mentioned finding us through the forum and that is awesome. Also a few people have reached out to make sure I am still keeping on and I appreciate that so much. As an addition to the sale we are moving all of our display units for a heavily discounted price. They all have zero miles and will have new batteries installed (They just are out to look pretty atm and are battery-less). The only difference from new is that they have been picked up a few times and maybe gathered light dust. We could likely sell them at full price but that wouldn't feel right. If you are local we have the demo units too for sale. A few miles at best, mostly in our store with a few up and down a paved street. Message me about some local specials on IPS and used wheels. I want to hold a lot of our cheapest options for local only to get more community riders. OneSeven Store Page I added our local favorite shirt as I figured a few riders might want a shirt that no one else has. We might add a few small gear items soon. Gotway October Prices: ACM $899 for the display model (Only one available) ACM $999 ACM+ (84v/1300wh) $1199 MCM4 $549 & up Monster (2400wh) $2199 display model and our last Monster Super Amazing Ultra Rare Design T-shirt $17 Message me for local specials.
  8. Hey everyone, I am trying to get policy changed in my county park system to allow EUC’s on our hiking/ bike trails. Currently they do NOT allow ANY motorized vehicles on the trails. So here are the points I can use some opinions on: 1. Their concern: Everyone enjoys our trails because there are no motorized vehicles on them. So, I need to explain how an EUC will not disrupt this atmosphere. 2. Their concern: If we allow EUC’s we will have to allow every other motorized vehicles ie E-bikes, handicap scooters, skateboards, scooters, Segway's etc. So, I need to be able to write policy that can prevent this. 3. I need opinions on what makes EUC’s different and superior to any other motorized vehicle. If anyone has any additional important points to add, please feel free to do so. Thanks

  10. Hey guys, I've dug up an interesting piece of work that was unfortunately left unfinished by the previous designer team. The goal was to visually compare means of public and private transport to wheeling around Zones 1-2 of London. We have not been able to finalise the time of travel comparison, as it tends to be subjective around the busy city center. I am happy to evolve the conversation around what else can be put in such educational piece.
  11. I was reading in another topic when I saw statements about the "ONEWHEEL" seeming to be slow. They go about 19-20 mph with the newest one being a little faster if you don't mine risking a face plant. The best selling "Boosted Board" eskateboard goes 22 mph. Most of the other players go 20 to ~ 26 mph. A few custom types do 30+. Escooters typically are in the 15-18 mph range with more powerful models capable of doing ~ 28 mph. The top models are in the 35 - 40 mph range. Electric bikes are mostly in the 20 - 25 mph range - throttle only. Gotway has pretty much made the EUC the dominate force on the bike-ways and roads. (If one chooses to use the speed). Other than the electric assisted recumbent featured in one of Marty's video he appears to be king of the road. Very few people don't want the availability of speed, even if they never use it. Speed is seductive, potentially addictive, and often abused. I am older than dirt, so when I got my Ninebot E+ on a super close-out deal around Xmas time, the maximum 13 mph speed was just fine. During the early learning process I didn't know it but it was limited to 6 mph. I never experienced a warning or tilt-back .. because I thought 5 mph was scary fast. Once it started to "click" I got my first tilt-back, read the manual and set the app (I had the require KM) for maximum speed. Now I ride with tilt-back occurring quite frequently, such that I handle it quickly and with little stress. I want more speed. Jason (Ewheels) has on his site that the sweet spot for the average user is 16 -18 mph. I believe this to be true and would like to cruise in that range. Gotway's range, not speed, is probably ultimately why its wheels stay in demand even with build and QA issues from time-to-time. If my E+ had twice the range I would live with it .. at least for another year or so. I , like most on this forum, am anxiously awaiting the arrival of the wheels from INmotion, King Song and Ninebot. I am, however, not looking forward to their ~$1500 price tags. There is nothing out there for me at a reasonable price. The V8 has insufficient range for my 240 lbs weight, the King Song 14s is to small a wheel for my skills and riding terrain. Only the Ninebot Z line offers me hope. I can live with the Z6 and with the Z8 for sure. What will they cost and how will they and the 4 inch tire perform? We shall see. By-the-way I am at a stage where I am starting to think about riding backwards .. Oh brother! That sound you hear in the background is cluck, cluck .. cluck.
  12. Hi everyone, We have all read in the media today that UK is clamping down on self balancing devices! Lets try to put a stop to this and show our unity on this matter. Let's try to change the law...!!! l have came a across this petition set up by Steve Miltion. If it gets over 80,000 signatures it will be discussed on the House of Commons! Let's start signing! Please let's spread the word on social media and get the numbers we need! Let's do it for EUC! Thank you for your support #UKridesEUC ---------------------- Allow the usage of self-balancing scooters on public footways and cycle lanes Electric transporters can reduce the number of buses and cars on the streets. Due to the Section 72 of Highway Act 1835, on 12th of October Crown Prosecution Service released a guidance under which the usage of hoverboards and electric unicycles on the public streets would be illegal. Electric unicycles and hoverboards are safe and emission-free transportation devices that have gained popularity in the UK and worldwide since 2012. The devices are portable, they do not require any parking space, and also have restricted speed. Normal riding speed does not exceed running speed. There is a UK manufacturer producing high-quality, stable and safe electric transporters. This company created jobs for over 50 people and represents a significant innovation in transport industry.

  16. Gotway Tesla VS Ninebot One Z 16" VS 18" What do you guys think?
  17. The following EUC Mobile App comparison was commissioned by eWheels.com in an attempt to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the major EUC mobile apps available today. [edit: this comparison was mostly focusing on Main Page Dashboard layout/ergonomic strengths and weaknesses, hopefully pointing out where key important metrics and buttons were missing and relegated unnecessarily to secondary screens / menus]
  18. 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.....
  19. 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

  21. 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!
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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
