  1. So I just crashed today going 24 Mph but I was wearing almost enough safety gear. I was 17.5 miles into my ride and maybe 5 minutes from home when it happened. The wind speed had increased significantly but coming straight at me. I was in tbe middle of al 10ft wide paved path when all of a sudden the wind direction changed to a cross wind at 270 degrees. It pushed me toward the right edge of the path where a large ditch was filled with water for the resent storms. I attempted to correct by steering left, and leaning more to the left, and breaking, but I encountered speed wobbles as I was
  2. I was out riding with some friends, recording with the GoPro, etc as usual. Some holes are less visible than others and I wasn't paying much attention. Usually I will scan before turning away. This time I did not.. and I adjusted my feet and posture as well which I usually do rather stiff legged. And also.. I was riding squishy FW 1.05. I went down into a little hole... and out again.. the wheel slowed down going out... my body continued forward... I started to fall off the front, the wheel tried to speed up but I fell off the front anyway. Took a few steps, rolled my left ankle on
  3. Today I was riding my V8 on my daily commute like I've been doing it for 2 months. I was around 15mph on asphalt flat terrain, when suddenly the inmotion v8 gave up and I went body against pavement. It didn't play any different warning sound it just suddenly didn't do anything. As I've had a couple events where the wheel slowly titled completely and now gave up totally, is there a data logger where I can retrieve the wheel facts of the issue ?? I really want to know if something failed, overheat, frozen, over-speed. I can't really trust it, this thing might be trying to kill me. Maybe it
  4. So it finally happened. One of my hobbies got the better of me. Two weeks ago, I was riding my King Song 18XL on my lunch break. I was on a park road that leads to the bike trail. The speed limit was 25mph and there was a car in front of me. He started slowing down (probably checking me out), until we were doing about 10mph. So I decided to pass. I leaned into it and as I pulled up alongside him the wheel beeped once and turned off. I was probably up to about 25mph. Usually, if I get too aggressive, the wheel beeps a few times and tilts me back. This time it just quit. Next thing I know I
  5. I had a crash at 30km/h because the InMotion V8 switched itself off. This is clearly comprehensible and reproducible. I broke my upper arm several times and am now unfortunately disabled for the rest of my life. The arm is only half movable, as is the shoulder. But I am glad that I am still alive. The company InMotion is not interested in my crash and not in the defective device, which only ran about 80 kilometers, so it is almost new. The communication was aborted by InMotion, they don't even want the defective device back for examination. A warranty service was rejected. Who made sim
  6. So... backstory in an attempt to justify my bad decisions I've been rollerblading for the majority of my life and about a month ago decided to buy a Segway miniPro to commute to the bus stop. After getting the hang of it, I decided it was just too slow to meet my needs and a bit too awkward to carry on the bus. Fortunately, I found a better use for it. It was the perfect speed to teach my Husky to jog next to me so she can get more of a workout than our usual walks. This had been going extremely well and the Segway's balance and control made it easy to control her 'personality'. Aft
  7. Hi, I already mentioned the below to @Jason McNeil but figured maybe someone on the forum has recommendations. My questions are: 1. Are there some specific MSX grip tapes or does any skateboard grip tape do (seems like the latter would suffice)? 2. Has anyone successfully hide/fix carbon fiber scratches (unfortunately it's not the side-panels which seems more easily replaced. There is a YouTube solution using sandpaper, a grill-pattern to mimic carbon fiber, and a bunch of different spray paint colors [black/silver/high gloss something]). 3. Is there anything I need t
  8. Yesterday I was looking for a helmet but not decided yet about witch one buy. On that night I go for a easy ride what comes into a huge scare. And hugest was my surprise for saving the logs trap with one single scratch in the arm from one log, no faceplant and anymore scratches. Happy for my luck (or reflexes) for saving my head, I go to buy a nice helmet right now. Here is the video I was recording then https://quik.gopro.com/v/h20mg6yRVZ/
  9. So i just got my new MSuper v3s+. I wanted to test how fast i could go before the final alarm kicked inn. I was accelerating slowly waiting for the last alarm to kick in when suddenly the wheel cut out and i went tumbling. I made sure that i turned off the two first alarms, and tiltback off. After thinking about it i decided to try again with tiltback set to 42kmh 26mph. And my phone in my hand to check the speed. Maybe i did about 500m before it cut out again, this time going 39kmh, or maybe i hit the tiltback at 42kmh. My memorie is a bit hazy. I used the iphone app as it is the only app cap
  10. Last day I submitted the Ninebot One E+ to some breaking tests for a project. The idea was to test it against a bicycle to and compare the negative accelerations so we have data for a negotiation with the authorities proving that EUC’s may break as fast as a bicycle. By the way, they are. I connected 9BMetrics and started to make hard breaks. Everything was going fine when in a breaking the Ninebot suddenly cuted current and I was ass in the pavement. Fortunately I already have that outcome into account and was protected enough so not a big problem. Afterwards the Ninebot didn
  11. so i was just riding my mcm4 to work, getting all over confident with the speed and taking over all the cyclists (20-25kph). while going uphill (5%) the wheel started beeping (i have first and second beep disabled, so it was the three beeps alarm) so i slowed down a small bit.. accelerated a bit again, and all of a sudden it started rocking VERY hard back and forth, basically throwing me off the wheel (there's no way anyone could stay on it like that). luckily i managed to run off, and there was no one in direct proximity (wheel took some serious scratches though). Has anyone experienced
  12. Hi, so after my fall today I found and joined this forum to see gather your opinions as to why my ninebot was dysfunctional I was riding on my ninebot for about 30 min or so hitting max speed several times. But the last instance after I hit max speed, it beeped but then quickly gave out and I had a pretty nasty fall. Usually when a person hits max speed on the ninebot, the machine pushes back on the balls of their feet and makes them slow down.This time it did not do that. I am not new to the ninebot and have been riding for about 6 months without a crash. I thought I dislocated my shou

  14. Wondering if any 9 Botters experienced the crash while they had the trolley handle on the wheel. I plan to buy one but because of the protruding design I'm hesitant to buy... Do you think it is likely to survive in the crash?
  15. Hi! Does anyone knows where I can find a replacement battery for my unicycle? I have had problems with my unicycle where it has just died during a ride leading to a crash This has happened a couple of times especially when the weather is cold. Has anyone experienced this problem? I believe that it could be the battery that is the problem and now I'm looking for a replacement.
