  1. As people know it is hard to find a way to lock a KS. This is my solution. I drilled a 3/8" angled hole through the pedal from the bottom . The hole is angled so that it come out the existing pedal screw hole. When the lock is in the hole it blocks the screw hole that allows you to remove the pedal. Technically you could still remove the pin from the other side but it would not be easy trying to suck the pin out. I use a full size 10 foot master cable lock so that I can lock two bikes and two EUCs but you could also use a regular full size lock. ( As you can see this is a learner wheel. Five people have learned to ride on this wheel so far. )
  2. Hey guys, Wondering if some of you who have ridden both the 18L and the Tesla can chime in. I'm coming from the KS16B, and I outgrew it speed-wise about a year ago but have been waiting for the 18L. I love pretty much everything about the 18L from what people are saying, but in looking at the Tesla, I'm wondering if that extra 7mph in top speed (from 30mph to 37mph) will be something that bugs me a few months after getting an 18L. I know with my KS16B, the ~19 mph max speed felt pretty slow within a few months of riding in bike lanes and streets, and if I had had the option of getting something faster (which didn't really exist at the time), I would have wanted that. Those of you guys riding the 18L, are you pushing against the 30mph limit and wishing you had the extra 5-7mph of something like a Tesla? And are 30mph / 37mph speeds relatively comfortable cruising speeds for each? Or is it too crazy cruising at ~37mph on a 16" wheel? My 16B isn't terribly unstable, but it also doesn't go 30+ mph. Last thing -- i've heard somewhere of something called the "gotway glide" which is supposed to be some ethereal quality that GW EUCs have that make them really smooth or something. Does this apply to the Tesla? And is it noticeably absent from the KS18L? Thanks in advance.
  3. I'd love to see your creation's. Whether it's about looks, add-ons, modifications, enhancement or just for pure coolness.
  4. Hello all. I have been reading a lot on these forums lately trying to find a safe and good EUC for myself. I am 175cm and weight around 110 kg. A few weeks ago i bought an Airwheel X8 for my 10 year old kid and he is really enjoying it. I also have a 7 year old that still uses a hoverboard. I have tried it a few times and I love the feeling when I ride an EUC but the range on the Airwheel is very limited with my weight. I would love to find a EUC that I can use on trips with my 2 boys, speed is not an issue for me since the hoverboard has 12 km/h max and the Airwheel 18 km/h. There have been a few occasions where hoverbards and EUC have caught fire during charging so this is one of the things I am afraid of. I have been reading a lot about the Kingsong ks16s and it says max load is 150 kg, is this the best alternative? Greetings too all from Norway.
  5. Hello... Yeah, I know, I know... I have a lot of troubles with my wheel... But here is, :(, another one... Today I wanted to turn on and try lift sensor for the first time... I turned it on in the app, it worked like 5 times and than nothing... I let it be for a couple of hours I was not at home, than came back, and still nothing... One succes, nothing... It works only 1 from 15 or 20 tries... Idk what is wrong... Is there anyone having the same problem? Or is there any way to solve it? I thing it is hardware problem...so :/ Ty and have a great day!
  6. Just updated to v1.09 using Android app 1.50. Trolley sensors calibration is now gone, and seems to be automatic. No other changes noticed. This version is suppose to fix also the firmware freeze issue in trolley mode.
  7. I though it might be useful to have place to check what is latest firmware version. I just got version 1.09 updated as I post this, the update completed successfully. Edit: @US69poster this change log. V 1.09: 1. Added multi-RGB pattern, mode 1 is automotic mode2. Self-checking the match of firmware version and series number, if not match, the wheel will loose balanceV1.081. Automatic sensor calibration2. Avoid wheel freeze issue.

  10. @US69 Can you forward an idea for optional aftermarket items to suggest for Kingsong? They kind of did this with extra charger port, I thinking expanding the concept. Yesterday I think Jason posted that bigger pedals are in the works as an option. Great idea, I my book could be pedals surface options too. I think a formfitted (rain)cover could be a fantastic optional, for a commuter to improve weather resistance of the wheel and for people who want to avoid scratching their wheel. It could be made with some refective and foamy material similar to how the Inmotion have done for their wheels. And I still don't get why wheel makers don't make foam option like you had for ninebot s1 (I don't recall model right maybe, as I only saw pictures of this, but never owned a ninebot). In most cases manufactures tend to have optionals to improve profit thinking of other type of product, e.g. cars.
  11. Hello forum! I can get Inmotion V10F from china seller for 1400USD and KingSong 18L for 1550USD. I am gonna commute DAILY to school and back (15km+15km)... It is not an off-road trip...it is mostly a car road or road for bicycles. It is only one hill...so mostly it is plane road. Sometimes I will ride in rain and some snow too... And sometimes I will use a BUS, when there will be a storm or just some bad bad weather... What wheel, do you think, will get the job done better? Thank you for your replies and have a nice day! and Im sorry for my english xd
  12. My KS18L died today, here is how and what happened: - Firmware version 1.0.7, Battery 90%, Mode Beginner, Speed Max 25Km/H - Battery was 100% and I drive for about 8km, temperature outside was around 33°C. - After driving, I took the wheel in trolley mode, as I was shopping, and walk with it for about 15 minutes inside a shop with aircon. - After 15 minutes walk, the wheel suddenly tremble once and then switch off. At last that was what I was thinking because there was no lights, on/off button has no effect etc... - I noticed that the wheel was becoming more and more warm, despite give no sign of life... Also the wheel was very hard to turn... I think it's a motherboard issue... Probably Mosfets died and made a short circuit... I decided to open the wheel and disconnect the battery cable as it was becoming more and more warm and I was worrying that it can take fire... I've noticed that motor cable was very hot too, so it just confirms to me that there mosfets died in a "short circuit" mode... Also the fan was running and there was a green light switched on on the motherboard... No other signs of life... No bluetooth... etc... Hope this kind of details can help King Song to make a fix for it. If there are any questions, please feel free to ask.
  13. Stan Onymous June 27, 2018 Revisiting the KS14B A vacation jaunt on an old friend The Kingsong 14b was a traveling EUC that was sold with the promise of being able to fly on planes with it due to its removable FAA approved battery sizes. It has all the whistles and bells of its higher end Kingsong models, ie bluetooth speaker and usb port. It is also very slow at 16mph top speed. That’s half the speed capabilities of the KS18 line and with good reason. It only has 16 cells in the removable batteries, so it is a niche vehicle at best, albeit a very fun niche. I call mine the singer sewing machine, since it looks like a portable sewing machine from the 70’s. It has the ride feel of what I imagine Rosie the robot from the Jetsons would feel like if she gave you a piggy-back ride. So it is nowhere near the latest technology EUCs coming out this Summer, but in my humble (Ha!) opinion, it is just as thrilling and fun to ride. Maybe I should qualify that statement. Part of a what a Vacation has always meant to me is slowing down to appreciate life away from the business world. There are few slower and more enjoyable than this vehicle. Many riders think that the only way to have fun on these machines is to push them like a pioneering test pilot. It is a great imaginary tactic to keep fear as an invigorating feeling of, as Churchill said after escaping in a retreat from a battle in WW1 - “There is nothing so thrilling as to be shot at without result”. Having lived in a gang section of L.A. in my youth, I am not sure I totally agree with Mr Churchill in the moment after drive by shootings, but the relief after the event of survival is a real feeling. So how does all of this carnage fit in with such a tame device as the KS14b? It doesnt. It has a completely different feeling than terror and relief. It has Nostalgia. Nostalgia is what makes grown men rent a classic car they remember were cool from their youth. Maybe its a Mustang from the 60’s with an inline six cylinder engine, maybe its a VW beetle or maybe its a Cadillac Eldorado. These are clearly outdated vehicles, bereft of ABS and fuel injection, and two of those cars have the suspension system of a horse drawn wagon from the 19th Century. None of these cars can accelerate to 60 mph in under 8 seconds. Yet in their times they were very fun vehicles indeed. This is the exercise in nostalgia. It helps one appreciate how far we have come while we were busy living our lives. It gives us a sense of progress we may not have recognized in our daily lives. By now the skeptics are asking themselves or my words - “How can riding something so unsafe in today’s measure be considered fun or even appropriate to consider?” We have ridden tons of unsafe vehicles over the years. Consumer Reports called both the Corvair and the Subaru 360 unsafe at any speed, and ugly to boot. I would disagree with the latter and the former for that matter. There was the pinto, the Subaru brat’s rear seats, the flippable broncos and many many more. I drive my Subaru 360 truck occasionally, and yes it will fishtail if I slam on the brakes at a stop light, and no it wont do 70mph unless you toss it off a cliff. But it is a joy to ride in. There are tons of stories about the dangers of older cars, and in comparison to what is being made today, some of those concerns are real. They are real in today’s metrics, but back then they were perfectly fine for families and teenagers to cruise the streets of a much simpler America. It is with that feeling of a simpler time that makes the KS14b a quaint nostalgic ride. Sure you ride no faster than a jogger could sprint, and occasionally young ladies in tennis skirts will pass you on their 3 speed bikes going down a hill, but even that exercise has its advantages. There is a real skill in riding within the limits of a machine. With some of the newer models, even riding within their limits can injure one in a fall. There is much less of a chance of being injured tho on a vehicle that you can jog away from while at top speed. While on vacation that is an important benefit. Who wants to race past beautiful beaches and awesome sunsets, or other beautiful scenery? Isnt it more fun to enjoy your surroundings when you are in a place of beauty during a vacation? The answer for me is Yes it is. The KS14b is a joy to ride with a Classical music station blaring out of the Quadrophonic speakers at 12- 14 mph along bike paths and abandoned sidewalks. Fun you say? You must be madd. No but really, being able to ride at that speed has taught me a lot about why I really do enjoy these vehicles. Standing while moving is fun, thats why people dont usually walk up an escalator unless they are very late. It feels like a reward. A reward for what you say? Who cares really, but a reward for being alive. A special perk for trusting in technology to get us through another day. With great technology comes great responsibility is what Peter Parkers father would’ve said had Peter become the bionic man. And so it is with the EUCs of today. But the older EUCs, much like older cars, have none of that. Reward yourself, smell the flowers see the sights and dance while riding to your favorite music. Hop on an old friend and remember what makes this hobby so much fun is not the thrill of survival, but the reward of moving while standing still. Feel that? Thats an epiphany patting you on the shoulder. Now, go out and have a wonderful day!
  14. I went to Copenhagen to pick up my brand new Kingsong KS18L Electric Unicycle. In this video, I unbox, unlock and share my first impression of KS18L after taking in on its first ride.
  15. I have a barley used, less than 4 month old KS14S for sale. In great condition.
  16. Hi all There are some places still selling the batery pack for the kingsong KS-14b. This is an 16 cell pack (16 in serie) with 174wh that maybe can be used in other euc, so for 100€ doesn't look a bad value for the money if my assumption are correct. Can anyone tell me if this baterry pack as bms included? And what it is connected to the metal contacts? Thanks
  17. Hello everyone! I want to reflash my KS-14M back Where to get the firmware on it? If you have, please share
  18. I just got a KS 14S yesterday and am slowly learning to ride. Does anyone know where I can get replacement pads without the logo?
  19. Hello My name is Carl Irjala and I live here in the city of Kotka, which is near the Russian border. If you allow, I wish to start writing to you about my experiences as a brand new electric unicyclist. I'm a soaring pilot with several hundred landings behind me. So when I saw a video on YouTube that told that riding an EUC feels like flying I became instantly interested about it. So my first topic is about the experience of buying my first EUC and the learning process. The EUC brand is here in Finland so new that I had to search abroad to get reasonable information about it. My mother tongue is Swedish and Finnish. In those languages there is not enough information that would make me to buy an EUC. Luckily, I found this forum and the members' YouTube videos. Lots of sellers at the Internet do not communicates in English, so I was totaly dependent on the information you provide in this forum. Another matter that affected the choice of my first EUC was transport and tax costs. I have bought a lot of products directly from America and China, but sometimes the goods come with a shipping / duty surcharge that can be up to one hundred percent of the value of the product and sometimes not. So this makes the purchase a little risky. I found only one seller who provided clear information about shipping and taxation charges to Finland. After payment, it only took five days to get home the product from Poland (see image files). So in full, the whole process was quite easy. My next post will be a video about learning to ride the EUC. In that video you will see a whole new method how to do it. So, stay tuned on this topic. Kind regards Carl
  20. Hello everyone, do you guys know who has the biggest pedigree so far? Meaning as far as the euc not breaking up, with long term use, or reliability ...etc. In that who can take the most beating: The KS 16s from kingsong? Or the v8 from inmotion?
  21. On my way to work today my KS14d dropped me twice ! The first time was very minor . Low speed coming off my patio. Took a ~3” ledge at maybe 5mph and boom . The wheel lost its balance , fell forward and tossed me off . I picked it up and it righted it self immediately. Thinking it was a fluke or that maybe I hit a divot or something I continued on to work . Going ~15mph on a slight down hill I encountered another small dip . I was ejected forward again , this time hitting the pavement HARD!! . My lip is swollen like a golf ball. Ribs bruised . It’s bad ! Again picked up the wheel and it again righted itself immediately. I limped very very slowly to work . Battery was full and I wasn’t at max speed btw.
  22. Hi there everyone, I know of some gotways having coolers inside of them and stuff, like the tesla, and the ACM 2 also has a little one on the side, I was just wondering if the KS 16s have any coolers inside of them, has anyone opened one b4 and see one?
  23. Okay... I'm getting so, so, so frustrated with my EUC experience. I really need help. I got my KS18S in late September. I started regularly riding it in late October. In January, it malfunctioned and threw me, sending me to the hospital. The company gave me a new EUC, but since my tire went flat, it's been a shitshow. It took me a while to order the special inner tubes, but I've reassembled the EUC thrice, with it malfunctioning in different ways each time I've tried starting it. I don't think changing a tire should involve directly plugging/unplugging delicate things into the circuit board. The last couple times I assembled it, it accelerated uncontrollably when turned on. Now it synchs with Bluetooth and a loud female voice shouts something intelligible at me, and the EUC itself doesn't move. Overall, I've been having a terrible experience with my EUC. I've been sending emails back and forth with the retailer, but these companies should be providing more support. What's your experience with EUC maintenance been like? Does Gotway provide better customer service?
  24. Hi all! Looking to purchase a KingSong 14D. Have been reading reviews for waaay too long and think it's time to dive in. Sadly, it seems like I just missed a couple sales of the KS14D in the past month, but hoping someone else is out there in the NYC area or within the US looking to upgrade. Seems like market price is around $500 depending on condition. Give me a shout, cuz I'd love to hear from you! Can't wait to start riding! Have a good day! =)
  25. My KS16s had an odd issue today. When I was walking it with the trolly the gyroscope seemed to fail. It would tilt forward as if out of power but then it would stop tilting after reaching maybe 20 degrees. Then it would stay that way for a bit and then start tilting back the other way until it was 20 degrees past horizontal in the opposite direction. It repeated this a couple times within a minute before I got back home. Thank god I wasn't actually riding on it when this happened, could have thrown me if it happened at high speed I suppose. Any idea what causes this? Should I stop riding it altogether just in case?
