  1. Last updated: 13 May 2019 Dear fellow riders, as some of you may already know, I'm the guy responsible for latest WheelLog development This happened, however, during the development of the application to record the route together with the wheel parameters. This application (website) is now publicly and freely available to any of you here - https://euc.world - I named it "World of electric unicycles" I have chosen WheelLog as a base app that will source location & wheel data. I added some features that are very useful during your ride. In particular voice announcements and alarms. Really, you should try speed alerts! Wind noise will no longer be an issue to hear that you exceeded your preset speed. I also added other languages, thanks to @koto , @ArqFG, @andress, @George Iliev, @Lefteris and @fabio70mi. Currently WheelLog supports English, Polish, French, Spanish, Czech, Bulgarian, Greek and Italian languages. By the way, it turned out that more features could be added and improved, and that's how I - slightly unintentionally - became current WheelLog developer WORLD OF ELECTRIC UNICYCLES - DOCUMENT AND SHARE YOUR EUC RIDES Now the https://euc.world service is working quite good, so it's time to announce it's availability for the whole EUC community. Initially I've made it for myself, but soon realized that it may be very useful for other riders. It's my hobby project and it's completely free. It allows you to record your rides including your wheel live data. By default, saved routes are not visible to others. You can also share them with others by sending them a link. You can also make some routes available to everyone, so they will be visible on the main page. Euc.world is a great and free alternative to Endomondo or Strava, as it allows you to document your rides along with detailed wheel telemetry (wheel speed, battery charge, voltage, current, power etc.). You don't need WheelLog to be connected with your wheel to record your rides. In this case wheel data won't be recorded along your track - that's the only limitation. So if your wheel isn't supported yet, you can still map your rides. You can even add photos to your ride. I'll be happy to read your opinions, feedback and feature requests. Of course this website is still under development and now I'm working hard on wheel data visualisation. I think it will be finally working near the end of this week. Currently, wheel speed (black thin line) is overlayed on lcoation (GPS) speed. King Song users are advised to check if their wheel doesn't inflate the speed For example, KS-18L/XL inflates speed reading by about 20%. With time, I'll add more features and fix any bugs I'll be aware of. HOW TO START USING EUC.WORLD? If you already have installed WheelLog from Google Play store, uninstall it first. Download and install WheelLog from this link - https://euc.world/getwheellog Sing up with https://euc.world to create account and get your API key. Enter your API key into corresponding field in WheelLog live map settings in exact form. Small and large caps matters. Setup other WheelLog options according to your preferences. Start riding! Last, but not least - don't forget to give me some feedback so I can push this project in right direction. Note - you don't need euc.world account to just use newest WheelLog and benefit from other features. However I encourage you to at least try. If you think that you need some features, just let me know. I struggle to make this service fit EUCists nedds as much as possible. I'd kindly ask you for one thing... If you are going on an interesting route, think about making it visible to everyone. The idea that guided me when I created this website was to show other people interesting places where you can get on an electric unicycle. So if it doesn't affect your privacy, think about recording some routes in public mode. Add interesting photos, let others see the beauty of the places where you ride on one wheel. This is one of ways we can popularize EUCs. We can show that EUC riders are everywhere! And remember - you can also change visibility. Just log to your account, enter the tour you would like to edit and from "Tour" menu select desired visibility. So you can make the tour hidden or reverse - one of your beatutiful private tours make visible to everyone! WHEELLOG'S FUTURE WheelLog is a great application that's worth to maintain and improve. Now as I became a WheelLog active developer, I plan to add support for other wheels. WheelLog is lacking Ninebot support (wheels other than Z6/Z8/Z10). I already added support for Ninebot One S2 and plan to make other Ninebot wheels to be supported by WheelLog and I hope it will be done soon. Of course I also plan to add wheel sother than Ninebot. You can always find latest WheelLog version for download here: https://euc.world/getwheellog It will also be available in Google Play store soon, so installation and updating will be much easier. PLEASE, CONSIDER SUPPORTING MY EFFORTS As I wrote above, I plan to add more wheels (and other devices, like e-scooters etc.) to the WheelLog. I'll also review already supported wheels to check if I could add new features. It's my hobby. It's fun and pleasure so I can spare some limited amounts of my financial resources for WheelLog development and euc.world running, but only to pay for most important expenses. Any support from euc.world and/or WheelLog users will greatly help me with both euc.world and WheelLog development, especially in regard to adding new features and keep this application constantly developed. If you want to learn more, please visit https://euc.world/supportme Thank you in advance!
  2. Really feeling for @Ben Kim, whose AliExpress Green Fashion modded 2460WH Gotway Monster V3 100V arrived to him today toasted (posting with his permission). https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33045049906.html He will get made whole via PayPal dispute, but really deflating I can imagine having had to wait so long for this order.
  3. Hi, It started somewhere here, it was just improvement to make WheelLog working with Inmotion. But then I was asked about some improvements for KingSong and Gotway as well. So I think it is time to move it here. Improvements regarding the version from the market (not all, I don't remember all, but you can read previous topic about changes if interested): - Inmotion support, including wheel setting control (tested, work fine with V8, work not bad with others), extended logs - KingSong: negative current, correct start with FW 1.25, wheel setting control (untested) - Gotway: some minor fixes, wheel setting control (partially tested) - Top speed reset from menu - User trip counter (can be reset from menu, not affected to wheel or app shutdown) Known issues: - Xiaomi devices may often lose connection with Inmotion (problem in Xiaomi Bluetooth implementation) Latest version in PlayMarket
  4. Hello readers and riders! I apologize for my English, if it has any errors. First of all, let me introduce myself: My name is Ilya, I'm the iOS Developer since 2009. Also I have Ninebot One E since April 2015. Then I decided to combine these skills into my new app - DarknessBot. The application is available only for iOS 9.0 and higher. Ninebot haven't presented any official APIs yet, so I cooperated with the GyroMetrics developer - Paco Gorina (special thanks for helping with Ninebot BLE protocol) The application from the active EUC owners! It supports the following models: ► Ninebot One (C, C+, E, E+, P) ► Inmotion (V3, V3C, V3S, V3Pro, V5, V5+, V5F, V8, R1, R1N, R1S, R1S, R1T, R1AP, R1CF, R1EX, R2, R2N, R2S, R2EX, L6) ► Gotway (MCM2, MCM4, ACM, MSuper V1/V2/V3, Monster) ► KingSong (14, 16, 18) Features: ◉ Modify tiled interface that you can customize ◉ Displaying all available metrics through Bluetooth LE: ► Current speed ► Maximum speed ► Total mileage ► Remaining mileage (depending of rider's weight, the battery charging cycles, and weather conditions) ► Total runtime ► Battery level ► Temperature of the controller (not for all models) ► Power ► Voltage ► Longitudinal and transverse tilt (not for all models) ◉ Logging and displaying graphs of metrics (up to a month) ◉ Record video from a camera with a sensor display ◉ Changing the riding mode (not for all models) ◉ Changing maximum speed (experimental) ◉ Changing the maximum speed on limited mode (experimental) ◉ Changing lock mode (not for all models) ◉ Changing limited speed mode (not for all models) ◉ Compass and weather forecast ◉ Apple Watch support ◉ HealthKit Integration What next: ◉ One more thing Beta test 1.2 ◉ Support Ninebot One A1/S2 Application for free, but it has a few paid functions. So I provide 40 promocodes for this forum. Promocodes Download from Appstore
  5. Okay let’s face it... for us hard core riders out there it’s been a fight between the MSX and the Z10 though personally I think it’s a superior wheel even without the detailed experience of the z10 I’ve had to make quite a few customizations to my wheel. share what you’ve done and perhaps it would inspire me and others! Here’s a list of things I’ve done: 1. Put ACM padding on my MSX 2.lowered pedal angles 3.outdoor hiking light mounted by Velcro 4.el wire(three strips u see in the pic) to be visible from the side 5. Mud guard 6. Slime into inner tube 7.put more grip tape as the ones on the pedal were wearing out.
  6. These three EUCs have all sold, but there are plenty more available from eWheels! I've got three EUCs for sale. I'm in Los Angeles, California and will give you a free introductory training session, first time riders welcome, or a more advanced training session, if you're experienced. Whatever your skill level, I can help you be a better rider. If you like, I also can help you update the firmware, get the right App, connect to your smartphone, inflate the tire, and do what I can to make sure you're all set-up. No shipping charge, if we meet. Shipping cost will vary, depending on your location in the contiguous U.S. No shipping outside the U.S. 1. Ninebot One Z10 for $1475 with 3.8 miles on it and in perfect condition. Never dropped, has no issues at all. 995Wh battery. 28 MPH top speed, 25-45 mile range. I purchased it through eWheels, so if any repairs should become necessary (none needed now) it can go through eWheels. The warranty recently ran out. This Ninebot One Z10 is no longer available. It's been sold. <Pictures of it deleted> 2. GotWay MSX (Msuper X) 100V version, $1600, with 6.1 miles on it. Includes a 3D printed fender from eWheels. The MSX is in good condition, some low speed drops with minor scuffing under the pedals. Includes a new seat that has never been used. 1230Wh battery. 40+ MPH top speed, 50-60 mile range. (A new GotWay MSX 100V currently sells for $500 more, $2100 on eWheels, with a one year warranty). Warranty on this used MSX for sale is valid for six more months until March 1, 2020 through eWheels. When the warranty expires, should it need any repairs, it can be done through eWheels. I will also be available to help out, should there be any questions or issues, both before and after the warranty expires. You have double support on this wheel, triple, if you include the GotWay warranty. This GotWay MSX is no longer available. It's been sold. <Pictures of it deleted> 3. King Song KS-18XL for $1850 with no miles on it, never been ridden, still sealed in the box. 1554Wh battery. 31 MPH top speed, 60-70 mile range. Has the larger, better 10-inch pedals (factory installed) AND includes a 2nd charger. Factory warranty through King Song valid until January 1, 2020. The 18XL pictured is another one I have just like it, not the one still in the box. This King Song KS-18XL is no longer available. It's been sold. <Picture deleted>
  7. I received the Nikola Plus 100V about two weeks ago from the deservedly esteemed Jason at eWheels. I currently own an Inmotion V5F+ and a KingSong 16c, with the 16c being my (previous) daily wheel. I had some considerable internal debate over the decision to get this wheel. Having ridden KingSong for several years now, my first inclination was to pull the trigger on the 18XL or to wait for the new 16X. Let me just say... I am glad I did not wait. The Nikola+ is absolutely amazing. Size. This wheel is big. Bigger than expected. It absolutely dwarfs the 16c, and initially, you *will* be very taken with its width and its weight. For the first two days, honestly I was actually concerned... my fear was that the wheel might be too large and ungainly for handling slow pedestrians, and possibly to heavy and big to be easily handled in the office. These are both important factors for me. While this initially was a concern, I can say that after two weeks, that fear has 100% evaporated. This wheel IS big, and IS less wieldy than smaller wheels, but amazingly, you quickly get used to it. Riding dynamics. You simply cannot ride this wheel the same way a smaller one. But once again, those concerns disappeared as I quickly adjusted to using more body weight on turns, and the tire, which was initially quite slippery, was "worn in" and properly grippy after a day or two. The Nikola+, with a bit of experience, is just SOLID. It is easy to get to the place where you trust it and its ability to handle anything the road brings, and anything you ask of it. It flies right over rough road bumps that would have put terror in my soul to even consider driving over on the 16c. Yet the feeling of solidity over nimbleness, is not the tradeoff that I expected. In the end, I have actually come to hugely value the feeling of solidity over nimbleness. You feel that you have more command of the road and that is hugely, hugely satisfying. There were a few tweaks that I made to the wheel that were for me, pretty critical. The first was to throw away the spongy pads that the wheel comes with. Honestly they are complete garbage. They have a problem with the adhesive, but even once you address that, they are simply too thick. They make a wheel that is already big feel like you are straddling a truck. Instead I found some motorcycle tank pads on Amazon which provide the perfect grip for the wheel when it is needed. These pads made a huge, huge difference. They only cost me $8.59 for each pack of two pads, absolutely a no-brainer. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07SL3JNSC/ref=cm_sw_r_em_apa_i_tyEDDbGD2VHFH The next thing was that I also recalibrated the wheel up from the initial 1.5% angle to a 3% angle (after trying some other angles) and settled in on soft mode, which has *not* been my preference previously. After reading that some others recommended it, I tried it and agreed. For me it its much, much less hard on my legs in this mode. I haven't yet messed with tire pressure at all. Cosmetically, nearly every sticker on the Nikola+ (except for the padded stickers that protect the wheel when the pedals come up), peel off on their own. Gotway clearly has some adhesive issue here. My solution? I just removed them all, which really, simply improves the cleanliness of the look of the wheel anyway. The startup sound, as others have stated, is unnecessarily loud, and will have you rethinking where and when you start the wheel. That is an unfortunate annoyance, and an issue that I hope they fix in future firmware updates. But these are relatively minor issues, to be honest. The trolley handle for me hasn't been a problem for me, since it is essentially identical to the one from the InMotion V5F+, which I own. It gets the job done. It works effectively. The light, for nighttime riding, is bright and also quite effective. Power. The power cannot be understated. I am completely awed by the Nikola+. I am a 6'5" tall 220lb rider, and riding this wheel feels like riding a beast. This wheel gives you every bit from it that you ask for. It absolutely *flies* up hills on command, and it comes up to 25+ MPH at an amazing pace... and honestly, in my 100 miles of riding this wheel so far, I have only been a few MPH beyond that. Nevertheless, it is amazing to have reserve power even at that speed. I have spent a lot of time talking about other things, but really I could spend all day talking about how amazing the power of this wheel is. It is absolutely invigorating. In all honesty, I don't much see the point of having wheels that go much faster than 30MPH. At least in the city. That speed will make your heart skip not just one, but several beats. But such is the nature of the EUC arms race... Every year we push beyond... and I am here to tell you that I am thrilled to have gotten on board for the ride with the Nikola+.
  8. can someone help me pls , my euc is not balancing, i dont know what happened. sorry i dont know how to post vids here. pls click the link TIA https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1E63bzjbM4Ki8Tv01DA2sdAJPJvgzPnMA?usp=sharing
  9. Has anyone got one of these yet? I have just ordered one. I know the battery is only 170wh and 67v and 900w motor. Apart from the battery it has same specs as MCM4 from what I can see. The battery is ok with me as I can build my own additional batteries using 20a 18650's or maybe even 20700's if they will fit. There should be room in the shell if you can fit 60 x 18650's in there for the 87v 1500w version. I think I can add another 170wh of 20a cells for about $100 or 340wh for $200. So as a minimum for $550 I will have 340wh of cells capable of 30 amps and 30km/h max speed or for $650 510wh capable of 50 amps. Should be better cells than the In-motion I5, faster and cheaper. There is also a 340wh version available from https://www.flash-ecom.com/products/gotway-mcm5-electric-unicycle-black-340wh-67-2v-420wh-84v-800wh-84v?variant=13732898701367&currency=USD I ordered one of these first however he couldn't ship to Canada. Web site says in California but actually currently in China.

  11. And now it seems Gotway is the last of the Big 4 EUC companies near jumping on the scooter bandwagon with this DTen(?) Like most of these metoo scooters, this thing kinda looks like a repackage Currus RS11, with it's 3 pole handlebar post. Gotway DTen FB Post CURRUS RS-11
  12. 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.
  13. PROBLEM l opened my 84V Gotway Tesla v1.2 charger as it was always feeling hot. This is what i found: 1. Inside of lid had obvious "overheat signatures" 2. Small Capacitors were too hot to touch (and 65°C one was bulging ever so slightly = had been close to pop), also the big choke was seriously hot. Also measured alu hestsink right by the ?mosfet?transistor? NOTE! Meassuring temp of components was made with an "air probe" = add guess-timated 15-20°C to the values for surface temp, making capacitors around 80°C EXTERNALLY in an OPEN UNIT that do not trap the heat energy. How much accumulates over time, i dont know, but it will be higher temps in a closed charger NO DOUBT Solution, MOD with active cooling 1. Draw around the active fan area and Drill as many 2mm holes inside that area as possible. Fan was placed right above the small caps and the choke to cool them the most (small 2mm holes because I dont want metal accidentally falling down as it could have if i would have made a large round hole). Make sure drillbit is SHARP (metal drill) or you will have melted plastic at hole entry&exit that is very hard to get rid of nicely (i know, i tried before changing drillbit) 2. Drill exhaust vents at the far end (by the ? transistors?mosfets? and small chokes) to direct airflow past all components including the big capacitors in the middle. I kept the output area a bit smaller than the input to have a slight over pressure inside. 3. Got a 5V 50mm fan (so it could be powered by a usb charger), cut an old usb cable and soldered + shrinked the package together. 4. Glued the fan with plastic based "sealant" (silicone would also work i guess) to make sure no air pressure/flow is lost in the "grooves" of the lid (air allways takes easiest way "out") and maximize pressure towards the small holes leading air inside. 5. Added a few cable holders + ties and there it is, working like a charm. RESULT Can feel the air blowing through all three exhausts, have yet to do a charge from low battery as the heat develops over time and then meassure exhaust temp. I do not think it will be very high as the heat was/is generated over a long time in a closed compartment (little jest energy per second, but a lot of energy in the long run) , so likely i will just feel a luke warm exhaust air, if even that, as the heat energy is removed instantly every time slice and is likely a lot less than what this simple convection cooling csn hsndle. A.k.a. it should be more than enough to kepp things chill :-)
  14. Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone was interested in trading their wheel for both my Mten3 and Tesla. Both are perfectly fine, I've posted my Tesla on the forum a bit ago so most details about that wheel can be found on my last post in my profile section. My Mten3 is pretty much new, though I did buy it 2nd hand so I'm not aware of it's warranty status. It has about an estimate of 100 miles on it currently! It also has been converted to a tubeless tire, and it does has some cosmetic wear such as the side padding being a bit torn, I also planned on painting it. Now the reason I want to trade both wheels is I've been wanting to try out a different wheel for sometime now, as for my Tesla I've put 2,000 Miles on it. On the other hand the Mten3 is very fun to ride and cruise around with though I'm more focused on my transportation needs. If anyone is interested, feel free to let me know and ask me any questions regarding both wheels. I also want to mention that I do want to trade this locally in my area which is in California, I live between San Diego and Los Angeles for reference. Now for the trading process I'm wide open for a wheel that is 18in or similar in specs to what the Tesla has to offer. Thanks once again! - Alex (Seems more people are interested in buying the wheels so the prices I’m listing are Tesla - $800 Mten3 - $700 to see pics of both wheels in-depth send me a PM)

  17. So, I have two amazing wheels I got very close together, my first ever wheel, the z10 and more recently, the Msuper X 84v. Both wheels are so much fun in their own ways, but I'm left in a quandary....my next acquisition, which, while not immediate, I want to consider anyway...because I'm an addict...who enables his addiction. So! I ask you wonderful fellow addicts/enthusiasts...what next? I'm considering four wheels currently, some more than others for different reasons. 1) Gotway Tesla V2 - the thought process being, I don't yet have a 16 inch "normal" wheel, the Tesla would be a good commuter/cruiser/daily rider wheel packed with all the performance I could want, but that's fallen down my list when considering the... 2) Gotway MCM5 - I feel this would be an even greater daily rider than the Tesla; smaller, lighter, marginally cheaper, with the nimble nature of a 14 inch wheel but almost feels like a 16 inch (according to SpeedyFeet) but still hella powerful, and it might be a fresher, more different ride than a 16 inch when compared to what I have currently. 3) Gotway Nikola+ - Honestly erring on the side of no about the Nikola, even though I've heard it's a powerhouse, I'm not overly keen on the design, but if anyone can give me some good arguments for it, I'll certainly consider it. And that brings us, finally, to.. 4) Gotway Monster v3 - I know it's by no means the commuter I spoke of earlier, but in between the wild back and forths in my head, I wonder if both the Ninebot and the MSX, along with my Onewheel XR are good enough commuters, and if I should just go right to the top and get the current best of the best. Not much else to reason really, it's fast, the mileage is nuts and the black v3 looks cooler in my eyes than the purple, red or blue shells of the v2. Help me! And have a lovely day.
  18. HI Guys, I'm deciding on a new wheel and been looking at the Gotway Tesla V2. It rains a lot in Vancouver and was wondering if this model is as water resistant as the Tesla V1. The speakers kinda sketch me out and I hope water does't seep in. Seller from ALI says its sealed but I want to hear from a riders experience. Thanks
  19. Does anyone have a working msx motor they want to sell? thank you
  20. Link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/GotWay/permalink/2477689168956057/ My Gotway MSX (84V) Battery Repair Journey Background: https://www.facebook.com/groups/GotWay/permalink/2465864426805198?sfns=mo As stated previously, I came back from a one week holiday and encountered an issue with my Gotway MSX. I realised my battery was depleting very fast despite starting my ride with a full charge. Turns out my battery has an issue and was unable to reach the full charge of 83.7V(as indicated by my own voltmeter). It was able to charge to 79.4V and my stock charger would turn green indicating full charge. Using my 3A and 5A charger did not “continue” the charge as well(both green lights), which meant all my chargers were functioning. This would only mean that one cell probably died somewhere, since the difference was almost 4.2V, the typical full charge of a 18650 cell. As I pondered what to do, either riding it as it is and risk deteriorating the battery further, or importing a brand new 20S3P 800wh pack for S$900(US$650), I realised I should check with the many reputable battery builders in Singapore. As you know, we have a lot of escooters in Singapore, and there are some people out there who have been making batteries since eons ago. I decided to go with Xoda, a custom battery builder in Singapore who has experience in building custom batteries way before we got into electric unicycles. I dropped him a message and, despite his busy schedule, he told me to just walk in anytime. When I arrived at 1100hrs, he got to work straight away diagnosing my pack even though it’s his first time working with an EUC battery. He found that one cell had indeed died and affected the surrounding cells, so 3 cells had to be replaced. It was a good thing he has Panasonic/Sanyo GA cells in stock as well. He proceeded to remove the BMS and remove the affected cells. Did a quick charge of the 3 new cells before repeating the process in reverse. Using nickel to spot weld the cells back together. Then he helped to put my pack together and gave it a new heat shrink wrap in black and then a final full charge of the whole pack. It took 1.5hrs for him to do everything and hand me back my battery pack. Back home, the first thing I did was to charge the unaffected pack on the other side of my wheel first before connecting my repaired pack. Once it was almost full, I connected back the repaired pack and reassembled my wheel cover and pedals. Then I used my stock charger to continue the charge of both packs. This is one of those times where I’m glad Singapore is a small country and glad that we have people who have the experience and know how to fix things at short notice, no matter how niche a market may be. I started my day at 10am, did a bunch of stuff, had lunch, and was ready to go wheeling by evening for a sumptuous dinner with my friends A big thanks to those who gave valuable advice along the way, notably Mathias Gran and Marty Backe
  21. Hi Friends! Which model of Gotway or of King Song comes with tubeless tire? I have an Gotway MCM4 HS 680kwh which has a tubular tire that is the only down side of the model. And I hope to know which model from Gotway or King Song which are my favorites with tubeless system. Thanks in advance.
  22. Not too bad, better than I thought: KS-14C style, pedal-hex-bolt + zip-tie MTen3 handle solution, purchased off eBay from xiaoq-cn (edit: MTen3 Trolley via Green & Fashion Traveling Shop / AliExpress > Last Option). Plus the handle is extra long; just a tad longer than I need, nice!
  23. My GotWay Msuper V2 will not connect to the GotWay app on my iPhone 7. I press 'scan' on the app and it keeps searching and searching but it doesn't find my Msuper. I am aware that the Msuper V2 only supports the older Bluetooth and not the 4.0 Bluetooth in the new iPhones. How could I solve this? Is using an older phone with the older Bluetooth the only solution?
  24. Coming from a KS16S, I'm thinking to buy this great 16". I know it's as not as carefully finished as the Kingsong's, that it has not the real light, that the pedals are a little low (I don't know if lower than the KS-16S) and so on. I've read and heard feedbacks from a few owners and they are almost enthusiastic about its ride feeling and experience it gives. I drove it for a few miles just to test and it seems a solid EUC, maybe a little bit heavier (in riding, i'm not talking about its weigh) than KS-16S but nothing I cannot get used to. There's one that confuses me yet. The quality of its shell. I mean the plastic pieces the cover the core of the EUC. I've a friend that months ago crashed his Tesla, not a big accident, and seriously damaged its shell. He tried to fix it with scotch tape just to "survive" for a period and then he decided to buy the replacements from AliExpress to bring back its EUC to his original shape. It costed him hundred of dollars. After a few months I think he had troubles again (I dunno what happened) but it seems the shell is broken again. He knows I'm going to buy the Tesla and a few minutes ago he sent me a message with the picture I attach: "Don't go for Tesla, it's a great wheel but damn it broke again in the very same place as before! I think I will soon go for another wheel, I'm tired to fix this Tesla!" Is this Tesla really so weak and cheap in its building quality? Or was my friend particularly unlucky?!
  25. Hi there! (I checked a few threads but I was not able to find an answer to my question). I had a Kingsong 16S (V1) for about three months. My first wheel. And I loved it. After the purchase, I've heard about the new 16S (V2) with a few upgrades that include the lift sensor (that is IMO very useful). So I've decided to sell it immediately to buy the new version. I sold it for good money and the upgrade to 16S (V2) should cost me just a few bucks. BUt now I'm in doubt about this purchase. :/ Should I go with 16S (V2) or the recent revision of Gotway Tesla (V2) that includes the lift sensor too? What would be the pros and cons of these two wheels? I know the price is not exaclty the same but they are close. What would you be your suggestion? Thanks so much!
