  1. I'm still waffling on the acronym as it was going to be SHAM (M for Mod) at first, but the result is turning out better than expected so I thought I'd still poke a little fun and go for the chad-meme. Anyway, since I'm spending so much time on this, I thought I'd see if there's any interest in the community in posting the 3D-print design files for sale on say cults3d. Right now I'm thinking $25 for the models, assembly instructions, and parts list. Now for the long-winded stuff. Main Goals / Primary Features: Integrate center-mounted trolley handle Fit most standard 7mm rail bike seat saddles Allow for full back-to-forward saddle positioning Allow for tool-less and quick saddle and trolley handle changes (requires ~$30 USD rare earth magnets) Robust design likely to survive multiple wrecks Attaches with velcro (4 surfaces in contact) Ergonomic (eliminate sharp corners/transitions where possible) Retain spin-kill switch access Attempt to retain Begode Display visibility (we'll see) Other Design Details: Trolley handles require commonly available 3/4"-NPS PVC pipe, Cut trolley handle length as needed during assembly to fit your individual height (12-inch lengths shown) Trolley grip includes Option to assemble permanently with glue OR temporarily with ball-lock/clevis pins to make backpack storage easier if needed Current adapter block design < 400 g @ .30mm layer height and 4 layers B + T + Sides Design may fit other comfort saddles, but I have a couple of these on hand so this type will fit. Total prints for assembly includes Adapter stl, Grip stl, and 4 other small parts + 1 small assembly stl to help hold magnet distance tolerance for gluing. NOTE: can make alt parts for metric/European sizes if there's interest Things left to do: Initial Design Complete Simplify an interface/test-fit model Print and check fit + rework design as necessary Order required off-the-shelf parts Print and assemble prototype Test Upload to cults3d for sale Well that's it for now, I'll update the list as I make progress. Feel free to drop a comment or PM if you're interested. Also, if I'm wrong about the upper shells being the same for the Begode models wheels in the title, I'd very much appreciate a correction as needed.
  2. I fixed everything thanks to everyone, I leave the video just in case Hello. I just got mine. Begode t4 everything was fine. After updating the firmware, it turned off and no longer responds to anything. You press the power button, the screen does not light up, but the program finds it is no longer possible to update it. What to do has anyone encountered? I wrote in begude there is no answer
  3. IMAGES: https://imgur.com/a/LfLaopx Hi forum! Back from a hiatus. FS: Gotway/Begode MSX 100V 1860Wh. Los Angeles area. Purchased from eWheels February 2020 before all the fires and reliability issues started cropping up. only ~800 miles, always stored at 50-80% charge. one of many wheels in the stable, so very low mileage. includes EUCO branded fast charger (not pictured). up to 4amps and 80/90/100% selectable charge levels. ($200 value) i have a mud flap for it somewhere, not currently installed. will include if i can find it. disclosures: can include Clark Pads for an extra $100. i think i replaced the charge port on this wheel after about a year. could have been another wheel. no issues since. shell can creak, haven't tried tightening anything. everything else feels rock solid. great reliable wheel that has great speed/torque! a motorcyclist once clocked me upwards of 40mph. fully padded, of course. asking $1100, local Los Angeles pickup STRONGLY preferred (i don't have the box). cash is king.
  4. Selling my Begode EXN HT for $2200 obo. Sold as is. Please message me if you’re interested. Comes with all accessories in pictures. New H666 Tire only has 40 miles on it. It does have a broken handle and the negative terminal that connects to the halo needs to be reconnected. The outer shells has some damage. Other than that it has no other problems. It’s been a really great wheel that’s taken me on many adventures! Pick up only/ cash only please! Located in San Antonio Texas. -1201.6 miles -Clark pads custom stand for EXN -Clark pads bumpers for EXN -3 and 6amp charger to charge the EXN at 9 amps for 1.5 hour charging to full. -60-80 mile range
  5. The product line-up would be a smaller offering that is more differentiated by use-case (wheel size and (no)suspension). Pro versions are only for the Tesla and Master. Speed/torque options are only for the Master and Monster. No more new wheels are invented; we just get new generation iterations annually with higher specs, features or quality improvements (e.g. Master 2022, Master 2023, Master 2 2023, Master 2024 .... Master 5 2027). And they should all have the Master aesthetic as the brand's signature design language, changing number of headlights, foam shape et cetera, like they've than with the T4 and MTen4. Category series: - MTEN series should be as compact as light and compact as possible. A fun tricking side-walk wheel. - TESLA should be as nimble. torquey as possible. A convenient all-rounder wheel. - MASTER should be the performance street and off-road wheel. Stripped-down rugged racer. - MONSTER should be the highly stable, long-range cruiser.
  6. The Nikola+ I received at May from eucsale.com , started creaking today after it was left charging until full during the day, in office ~25 degrees C. Mileage is probably around 1k km. First time with any unwanted noises.. Last time I rode in some light rain for <5 minutes was 3 full days ago. It creaks only around/on the right side of the axle, loudly when going forwards and much more quiet when spinning the wheel backwards. But when stepping on the wheel and driving backwards, it also got louder. Was checking out other "creaking" videos and reports here, but none really matched this one so far, after around 10 threads. Any guesses what the creak or ideas what to try/do? Riding experience didn't seem any different, would you continue riding it at this point? :|
  7. There are a ton of conversations online about the Begode Master's lackluster knobby CST-186 tires that come stock with the unit. Some reviewers call it "just okay" while others think it's pure junk. Regardless, there is a lot of interest in swapping out the CST-186 tires from the Master. Note that at the time of this writing, eWheels is still evaluating other tire options, like the Kenda K262 and street Kenda 340A. Concerns with the knobby CST-186 tire includes lack of overall control, which makes it not so great on trails. What do you think? Will you swap the CST-186 tire for a different one, or keep it stock?
  8. $2,500 each not sold with Clarkpads. Just Clark Bumpers. HS 204 miles HT 184 miles Never crashed or fallen or ridden in the rain.
  9. Included in Hero Package Deal: (also listed on several EUC Facebook groups as well) 2-year Warranty from Alien Rides (1 year 8+ months remain) Shipping Included in Price - Original Box Grizzla Pads - Alien Rides Edition Upgraded Suspension (needs installed) Adjustable Fast Charger Standard Charger Pump & Alien Rides Stickers Installed Custom Armor (high-density EVA foam). A few scuffs on the skin in a few spots but nothing major at all. What little there is was covered later by armor. I will offer this package for $3,300.00, I paid $3,810.00 for the package. That would save you $510.00! UPDATE 8/2/2022! I have lowered my price and will now offer this package for $3,100.00, I paid $3,810.00 for the package. That would save you $710.00!There are only 71.95 miles on the Hero, so not even broken in yet. Why am I selling it? I purchased a motorcycle and told my wife I would sell the Hero to help compensate for the extra money. I still have a V11 to ride though.

  10. So, yes, I'm new here and don't officially have my Begode Master in hand yet, but I have built plenty of batteries, so my question with regards to the Begode master that's using the Molicel batteries is, why not just add more P groups? This question is really directed to anyone that is a battery builder here that has experience but I can't for the life of me figure out why we can't just build our own 8s6p batteries instead of 8s 4p batteries and go beyond what is listed on the comparison table for the battery configuration. And get more distance out while not sacrificing power? ALSO, why not just use waterproof electrical disconnects at the edge of the housings to have the batteries removable for hotswap, instead of running the cables internally/directly to the board. Im honestly thinking of doing this before even riding on it; I have a bunch of plans to reduce weight with carbon fiber anyway that will take me a couple of weeks. Am I missing something here?!
  11. My use case and experience Firstly, I'm relatively new to EUCs. I got Kingsong 14D as a learning wheel last september, and was extremely happy with it. I needed a way to commute around the central part of the city, with daily destinations in up to 10km radius. Of course, I grew out of 14D quickly. Range of 25km (I'm 90kg), combining with fast charging time is even acceptable, but its speed sucks. I'm no speed demon, but was getting into beeps in every straight line. After 1500km, upgraded to Kingsong S18, reasoning that I do not need so much power, but somehow believing in suspension as a value for security and comfort. What I miscalculated was portability. It is quite annoying to carry it up and down stairs daily, and I both live and work in old buildings 3rd and 4th floors. So I just stopped using it and eventually sold. I decided I need a wheel strictly under 20kg, so the only option left was MCM5, which I have for a week now, but only around 50km, as my commutes are quite short. So, while still in excitement of having a new toy, I'll put down several notes that might be useful for future owners. Ride The stability is amazing, I'd say, even more stable than S18, of course except on potholes. For example S18 used to slightly follow those lined pavement tiles (meant for visually impaired), but MCM5 almost does not feel them, it just goes where you want it to. And it is very comfortable to maneuver it, even without extra pads, what I wouldn't say about S18. My sense of insecurity is now based only on reasoning that the stability this wheel gives is a little deceptive, and that obstacles could throw me down actually easier than it seems. So we'll see, I'm just in the first hundred km. Also, you probably do not need more speed on 14 inch wheel than this one gives you. Lights Headlight sucks. Definitely too narrow. There is no designated back light, which is really bad for safety. LED lights are obviously designed as decoration, which I personally can't stand. Functionality to inspect battery by number of LEDs is marginal, at least for me. There are 7 modes to choose from, and no option to turn them off. Only one of the modes (the red one) does not look like christmas tree and compensates the backlight a little. Controlling lights is a pain in the ass. You have to cycle through 7 modes by clicking power button 3 times for each. So if you switched off your preferred mode unwillingly (which happens often, when you switch headlight on and later off), you have to push the button again exactly 15 times to cycle to previous position. Or use an app. I totally prefer Kingsong's solution with a simple light sensor for headlight and persistent decoration lights, with possibility to have them off alltogether. Sounds You get two first beeps at some ridiculously slow speeds (I guess around 15 and 30kmh, correct me if I'm wrong), which are just for annoying. Switched those off. The last beeps can be customized in three weird options, which are sadly not customizable.. I wish they fixed it: only overpower threshold should be hardcoded, and all the other signals should be customizable. Bluetooth music sounds worse than average smartphone. Glad I don't need it anyway. There is a constant, silent, high pitched sound when riding, differently from my other wheels. Not really annoying for me, but for some users it might be. Carrying In this batch I got, they finally cut out handles from both sides! So now it is better than you could guess from majority of youtube videos. Carrying up and down stairs is still less comfy than Kingsong wheels. Lift button is not on/off, but must be held constantly. That means you keep almost all 17kg on your mid-fingers, and simultaneously put extra strain on your fingertips to keep the button pushed. Not too nice. Trolly handle is sort of ok. I agree that sharp edge handle is not a nice thing to hold, and pulling it out takes a bit too much attention. But I do not agree to the critique I heard about handle going down to easily. It is easy to push it down to your desired height, and I find it convenient. But it does not go down by itself, or by accident, like many reviewers claim. Probably they fixed it. Switching between trollying and carrying is annoying. To lift the wheel you have to push the handle all the way down to fully align its hole with carrying handle. If you need to do just a couple of stairs, then you don't want to do it fully - as you'll need to pull it out again soon from its smooth bed. In those cases it is quicker to push it in just half-way, so the handle fits below your shoulder, then turn the wheel around and lift it from another side. Nothing too difficult, but ughhh, why? You never even think about that with Kingsongs. Mudguard I rode a little after rain, and my backpack got some spots on it. Not too badly, but not nice either. Now I'm thinking how to make a DIY mudguard. Conclusion I'd say that Begode have brilliant engineers and b-rate designers, who prioritize branding and decorations to ergonomics and overall user experience. But I definitely intend to keep MCM5 for a long time. I suppose there is no better short distance commuter in this weight class: the power, feeling, and stability are easily stronger arguments than those little annoyances I listed.
  12. Introduction As you may know, Begode has been offering battery pack options for the first time with the Master, a welcome advancement. Options are typically, as seen (for now) on the pre-order page of MyEWheel The LiTech upgrade is +120 Euros for Samsung cells, +300 Euros for Molicel P42A. Some websites like @Afeez Kay Erides.com opted to sell only the LiTech variant, calling it: "Begode MASTER Suspension Electric Unicycle 134V Li-TECH Assembled" The problem While preparing his Master review, Raphaël from Bonheur sur Seine asked his contact at Begode to describe what the LiTech option listed means. The answer he got is: LiTech packs still using Begode's BMS but are assembled by LiTech instead. No other difference. LiTech being described as a supplier for Begode, who sells the wheels with any of the pack options. Now, it directly contradicted previous discussion I had both on the phone and by mail (including @Jason McNeil from eWheels) with LiTech CEO Henry Zhang. We got in touch some time ago to talk about Smart BMS. In these discussions, LiTech expressed concerns on the long-term reliability of Begode's design and eWheels is pushing towards a redundant pack configuration. As a result, LiTech has been working on their own BMS solution from scratch. So far, eWheels is only interested selling safer Master units, combining a 100% LiTech redundant battery configuration. What does that mean The implications are frankly stunning. Begode has been selling wheels for months, that don't, and won't exist All distributors who sold LiTech variants will not get them (except from eWheels) All customers who preordered LiTech variants will not receive what they ordered (except from eWheels) LiTech asked everybody selling these "LiTech" packs to remove mentions from their website and they did not comply All distributors listing LiTech options are unknowingly committing false advertising LiTech has no plan to assemble packs with Begode BMS which they consider unsatisfactory. Everybody who ordered a Master only because of the expected improved battery safety will not get what they wanted (except from eWheels) Begode might attempt to clone LiTech's design as a workaround to the failure securing them as supplier and the inability to fulfill the orders already committed and paid for. Footnotes I understand that my statements here contradict what has been said for months, including by Begode's CEO in meetings with distributors. Some distributors will have a very hard time believing any of this, maybe I can help here, DMs open. My main source is LiTech CEO, I am sure 100% of his identity and legitimacy. I think it is plausible that Begode has been accumulating pretend "LiTech" preorders in order to accumulate volume, to use as leverage to circumvent the eWheels exclusivity deal. While I understand that LiTech EUC packs are a eWheels+LiTech developed venture, I wish there was no exclusivity deal in order to improve the safety of EUC riders worldwide. Therefore I would also like to pledge @Jason McNeil eWheels to find a way to enable the distribution of LiTech solutions with selected distributors, possibly via an agreement including non-compete and quality requirements.
  13. Gonna leave this Mooch LG M50LT test right here. This cell spot welded into 4P packs has been the common denominator in the majority of recent EUC wheel fires, and now this Mooch test shows the cell's max amp discharge significantly declines the hotter this cell gets (ie. our EUC's do not yet have a proper active cooling solution ala Tesla cars etc.) Which poses the question (smart BMS LiTech / LillyTech / LollipopTech be damned): why does this cell continue to get used in such a high power, high temp application such as a modern-day high power EUC, particularly in power-hungry, heat-building shrink-wrapped 4P configuration pack? (read: well, I actually do know why: $$$$) Obviously, this is not a bad cell outright, but perhaps it is not the right cell manufacturers should be using for our EUC purposes, especially coming from years of the tried-and-true, good old faithful 18650 flavor of cells like the once industry performance standard Panasonic NCR18650GA's. https://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/threads/bench-test-results-lg-m50lt-14-4a-4932mah-21700.974083/?fbclid=IwAR2-DMopoPvoRLKdqpQVMt0drGPXYM1UOP6bqVY8SuSxGt1iRMKrUYxhWOo Bench Test Results: LG M50LT - 14.4A 4932mAh 21700 Test Results This is a fantastic performing “energy” cell (high capacity, made for long run times at lower power levels) but be aware of the reduction in its current rating at higher ambient temperatures.This cell outperforms both the Samsung 50S and BAK N21700CG-50 at 5A. At 10A the Samsung 50S beats this cell by a few percent but the M50LT still performs a touch better than N21700CG-50. This makes the LG M50LT one of the best performing 21700’s we can buy. I have not tested its cycle life yet though.See my 21700 Ratings and E-Scores table (link below) to see how this cell performed against others.The preliminary datasheet for this cell lists a 14.4A “Max. Discharge Current” rating but that is only for 10°C-25°C room temperatures! At above 25°C the current rating starts dropping and is only 7.2A by the time the ambient temperature reaches 55°C. These higher temperatures are common in battery packs where each cell heats up the others around it and the cells are in a case or wrapped in insulating materials and heat shrink plastic. Never exceed 70°C cell temperature!So while you can run this cell at 14.4A if at room temp or cooler I recommend staying at 10A or lower to help improve performance (reduce voltage sag), extend cell life, and reduce the risk of the cell getting too warm.The top contact of this cell is recessed more than most cells so these cells cannot be directly stacked in a vapingdevice. The top contact metal is also thinner than most cells and the “legs” coming down from it are narrow so I recommend not using this cell where there is a lot of pressure on the top contact.The two cells I tested delivered 4843mAh and 4850mAh. This is fantastic consistency and is typical of cells from the big manufacturers. The cells I tested didn’t meet LG’s 4923mAh typical capacity rating but they were over the 4770mAh minimum rating.I strongly recommend reading the datasheet for this cell before using it: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0481/9678/0183/files/2020-21700_M50LT_datasheet.pdf
  14. Hello All, Looking for some input from the masses here... I just got a Begode hero from Aliens Rides in the US and have absolutely been loving it, but after about 40 miles of riding I've noticed there's a weird grinding/rubbing feeling coming from the right side of the wheel. It only happens when apply force to the right hand side when turning or carving. At first I thought it may be something stuck in the fender as that used to happen with my S18, but all was clear. I took a deeper look when I got home from our group ride last night and it looks like something may be rubbing against the motor (see pic). I don't see anything sticking out near the wheel though. If a light rider is on the wheel they have no issues, but anyone about 200 lbs was able to replicate the issue I was hearing/feeling. I've reached out to AR, but figured I'd check with the Forum and see if there may be something I may be missing. Guessing I'll be taking it apart and checking if any screw or casing is loose. At this time I've not had a single accident or fall so the wheel is still in perfect condition. any input is appreciated!

  16. Hello everyone, got a bit of a story here. So yesterday I discovered that with the newest revision Gotway/Begode wheels (most models) you can now update the firmware through the manufacturer app. I had read that the newest update can get rid of the annoying motor whine. So here's where it gets weird, there are 2 different firmwares for this wheel. One says "T3 84v, speed shows MPH" and the other is just "T3". Living in the states I decided to go with the MPH version since the display came from the factory reading KPH. The first flash went well, no issues BUT the display was still reading in KPH and the whine was still there. I thought that was strange so I decided to try again however this time the wheel entered the bootloader mode (constant quiet beeps) to receive the update but the app froze at 11%! So after about 5 minutes of waiting and sweating thinking I just bricked my wheel I decided to shut it off. Upon turning it on there was no display and no signs of life from the motor. Just the constant beeps from it being in bootloader mode. Que more freaking out. I restarted the app and lo and behold it can see my wheel. Upon retrying the update it worked fine thankfully. However, the same thing persisted (speed in KPH and loud whine). I decided to try the other "T3" firmware, flashing went without issue and the whine is gone! I went for a short ride (~5 miles) and all seems to be well. I will note the motor commutation creates a bit of noise (almost like a vibration) at slow walking speed when using the trolly handle now but I'll attribute that to whatever they did to make it quieter. I didn't notice a change in performance but I've only been riding for a week so I'm not really pushing anything to the limit. So here's a couple things I would suggest Begode improves for this process. 1. They really need to add a change log for these firmwares. Both of them report the same version #GW1601001. Even though they are clearly different. Plus we have no idea what they are changing. 2. They need to translate the firmware section in the app to english. It's dead simple (only 1 button) but it makes an already sketchy process even weirder. 3. Why would they name one firmware "speed shows MPH" when it clearly does not? If it's an unfinished firmware I certainly would NOT release it to the public! So anyways that has been my experience updating my Tesla V3 Firmware. Hopefully I don't get some random glitch that sends me face first into the ground lol. Thanks for reading!
  17. Hi all. Just noticed the voltmeter on my Nikola Plus is displaying "-.-.-.", when powered on. Everything else appears to be working fine, charges to 97% (over 2yrs old with 2.5k miles on the clock). Tried turning off & on several times and doing a static wheel spin, but no change. Anyone else had a similar problem? 🤔 Thank you 🙏
  18. Hey all🙂 Just wondering what new wheels everyone is excited for and why? What will you be ordering? Will you buy first run? Or wait for the second batches? Am I missing any? Thanks! I look fwd to hearing your opinions!
  19. Hey my dear fellows! I have got a question: I want to upgrade the tire of my GW Nikola with some profile. So the place for the tire in the shell will be really tight. To prevent it from rubbing against the upper (not side) edges, I want to lift the shell a bit. My idea was to use shorter pedal hangers. In that way the pedals would be higher off the ground, which I would appreciate too. I do not mind the wheel getting unstable or wobbly... Now for the question: which pedal hangers should I use? I found out that the Tesla1/2 and Nikola pedal hangers are the same. So it is for the pedal hangers of the MCM5. Maybe they are too short. But I would give it a try. Does anyone of You have some measurements? I would also drill some new holes in the pedal hangers, if they could bear it. But the shell would not be stable enough. For the MCM5 pedal hangers it would be important to be exactly as wide and thick as the ones of the Nik. They also have to be prominent enough. Should I forget it?
  20. I’m selling my GotWay (Begode) MCM5 V2 - 800wh, 84v, with just 121 miles of use, and never in the wet. I have too many wheels. Purchased 27 Nov 2020 for commuting etc. but I subsequently got the S18 which I often find myself taking out in preference despite it being a larger wheel. This is a 14” wheel, agile, super amounts of torque and a ton of fun. Probably the perfect wheel to learn on too. I will remove stickers cleanly if preferred. Free delivery in London/Hants/Surrey/ Berks etc. Offers in region of £700-750 please. Original charger and manual supplied. Video and more pics on my Instagram post.
  21. In several reviews it is said that the RS HS feels much more torqy than the MSP HS. But why? They use both 100.8 V and the C30 motor. Where comes the power rating 2000 W / 2600 W from? Did they change the diameter of the motor?
  22. Hi Peeps. I've been riding the Gotway Tesla for nearly 5 months and decided I want to upgrade the tyre to a wider tyre. I've heard people say they upgraded to a 2.4 or 2.5 inch road tyre but never seen anybody say what tyre and provide links to where to buy it from. I would be grateful if you could provide links im based in the UK and fancy seeing what the ride difference will be on a wider tyre. Thanks alot in advance
