  1. This is just a quick note to tell you all how DEEPLY IN LOVE I AM WITH MY V8 My girlfriend may be intensely jealous, but my true love (the V8) and I don't care. Coming up on a year of romance and close to 1000km traveled with no wipe outs or problems of any kind, she has never let me down. Rock-Solid. Non stop fun. My V8 and I still love spending time together: we both enjoy long rides through the park, quick shopping trips downtown, brunch dates with friends, I hold it's handle while we watch the sunset at the beach, etc etc.. It's all very sweet. The heart wants want the heart wants: and I'm here to tell you it wants a V8. Your heart probably wants one too, you just won't realize it until you own one. It's like having a dog, or a child - you just can't even imagine the intense life-long bond that will form, until it happens to you. Such a beautiful, elegant, brilliant little vehicle. Suddenly your world is brighter and you realize how incredibly slow and boring walking is. Why walk when you could fly!? How can I convey to all the non-V8 owners what they are missing? It's just perfect: the perfect weight, the perfect speed, the perfect range, the perfect price. With a V8 it becomes all about the journey rather then the destination; you'll find yourself taking the long way home. I wish I was poetic, I'd totally write my V8 a poem.... sigh... Babies should be assigned a V8 at birth - it is an absolute tragedy that most people will never discover joy that a V8 can bring. Walking is stupid - get a V8™
  2. I'm new here (this is my second post), so first I'd like to thank the community for bringing such good content. This is the best source of information about EUC I came across in the entire world wide web. I literally spent like 50 hours from the past 7 days to read as much as I could, plus watching videos and pictures. That's really amazing all the information one can get from this forum. Passion is all over the place. I was thrilled to browse it all. I feel like knowing some of you guys, although you're perfect strangers, and I'm even more a stranger to you. This is a magic (and weirdness) of Internet I guess. A bit about me: I bought an Inmotion V8 4 years ago (boy, time is flying), when it just came out. It has been the weirdest thing I bought, and the coolest thing I ever had. I became one with it: I brought it everywhere I go. Even to do grocery, to fetch water 100 meters away, to baby-sleep my one year old baby, or for epic rides in the forrest/mountains. Overall, I found it a futuristic way to explore the world surrounding us. I surprised myself to go to some places of my childhood village I had never been before. I'm a sportive kind of guy, and I like to walk, but I'm amazed with how easy it feels to go from point A to point B, like almost instant teleportation. Thus, it's such a wonderful device to fulfill one's instinctive appeal to discover what's after this road, or what's behind this hill. I went to places I would never have been without and I'm glad I did. You may object it's even easier by car, but the magic here is to go almost everywhere a pedestrian can go (at least everywhere a bicycle can go). It also feels totally different. I guess it's because of the minimalist design: it's an immersive experience. I didn't expect to fall in love this much with it until I left for two years to Vietnam. I missed it so much. You realize you love someone the day he's gone, right? Vietnam is not suitable to ride wheels, at least in big cities (I've stayed both in Hanoi and Ho-Chi-Minh), because of poor side walk condition, absence of bike lanes, and heavy scooter trafic taking all over the place. Fast forward two years and I'm now in Spain. Perfect spots to ride a wheel are everywhere, my head is spinning and it hurts not to have a EUC under my feet. I count the days until I can get one. I can't think of anything but this, while eating, while sleeping, while pooping. Hopefully once I buy one my mental activity can go back to normal. I've read tons to solve the classic dilemma: which wheel to choose? and where to buy it? I really loved the V8, so I first wanted to buy another one (second hand). I didn't find any, and the thing is I wish I can go further, and faster when optimal conditions are met (smooth dry road, good visibility). I read plenty about the reliable K16S, the compact MCM5, the 2.5'' wide V10F. The Nikola, Z10, MSuperX, Monster, KS18L... are out of my league. I'm also interested in smaller wheels like the Mten3 or v5F but they're shorter on range and I unfortunately don't plan to buy two models (short and long range) so I came to choose... the Tesla v2 (after ever changing thoughts). With choosing the model also comes the budget and where to buy it. I bought my first EUC for $700 and because I've been so satisfied, I didn't want to spend more unless it gives a clear advantage. For example, spending $900 or more on the V8F would not be worth it to me. But spending $1000 to double the range and x4 the power: I'm in. Is buying a EUC from AliExpress really bad? I'm really tempted to buy it on AliExpress for the price, despite of the 4 to 5 weeks delay (I already waited for 2 years). The seller I found is offering the Tesla for $1090 and has good reviews. This is also a cheaper price because of choosing the "rail transportation" instead of the default "air transportation". The main concern I have is the following: Will the EUC-World application be compatible with my wheel or not? I am not sure how a big deal this can be (I never knew about this app until a few days ago). I guess this App can be pretty handy, and almost feel mandatory / addictive for long ride sessions? I am actually not sure if buying the wheel on Ali will prevent the app from working? (I read contradictory informations, hence the confusion) What I understood is some wheels are manufactured for the asian local market, and others for the outside world. But I don't fully mesure the consequences of buying one destined to Asia. (I actually bought my first wheel on AliExpress, and had no issue with using the basic App that comes with it, but now I wish I can use some more sophisticated App to review what I just ride on a map) Other interesting topics I've searched on this forum, and may come back to later: Putting slime into the wheel to avoid flat wheel; Buying a pebble/smart watch to adjust one's driving style Equipment to prevent injuries (knees, wrist, head, elbow, torso) Apps to view and share EUC trips on a map Adding mirror to see what's happening behind Adding a better front light / rear light Buying a smart fast charger (does it worth it?) Laws and regulation in a specific city / country (in my case: Valencia / Spain) Do I need to pay for an insurance? Material to record videos while riding (360?) Housing to protect the wheel (if ever it exists for the Tesla) Contact other local riders to share and enjoy beautiful rides How everyone got injured, to rise self-awareness
  3. So I am a complete beginner when it comes to EUCs. Never rode one but very interested in getting one. After doing a of research, I decided to get an Inmotion V8 as my first wheel. However this morning my Uncle (who's also into EUCs) told me that he was willing to give me his Kingsong KS18XL as he doesn't use it anymore. The 18XL is way better than the V8 in every way but I've heard that it's quite heavy and a complicated wheel. Therefore I was wondering that would I (someone who has never rode an EUC) be able to learn and manage the 18xl? Or should I stick to the V8?
  4. Still very new to this (2 weeks on street). I live in San Francisco so dealing with hills important. Today went out to practice taking off from a stop and climbing hills. Battery was at 80%. While going up a steep the wheel seemed to not have enough power. It didn’t freeze but slowly came to a stop. Forum members have told me it’s a relatively underpowered wheel for 5’10” 180lb self. I’m not sure if I wasn’t riding correctly or if it not strong enough. If it’s the wheel, I may have to upgrade sooner than I thought - there are a lot of hills around here.
  5. Am a beginner at riding and have a V10F. Rather than trash it whilst learning I’m looking for a secondhand EUC to learn on.
  6. 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 similar experiences with this company and its products? Thanks in advance and always a good and secure ride FastFraenzje

  9. I recently found out that I could not fully charge my V8 using the original factory default 84V 1.5A charger. The charger light always turns green while the battery indicator on V8 is still blinking. Tried few different experiments using Charge Doctor Voltage output with 3 different chargers: Charger A - my oldest charger, about 15 - 16 months usage, indicates 79.8V - 79.9V. Charger B - about 6 months usage, indicates 80.5V - 80.6V. Charger C - about 3 months usage, indicates 81V. I have never really noticed the Voltage while they were brand new though. Are they supposed to be exact 84V showing on Charge Doctor? Could anyone with V8 and Charge Doctor confirm please? What is wrong with these? Which components are failing/aging and need to be replaced? Is it normal for chargers to have output voltage drops overtime like this? I believe I have always taken good care of them.
  10. Hello All OneWheel community together today it is my first review for the onewheel made by ninebot and inmotion First of ALL, both are for daily use VERY usefull ninebot: silent ride, fast charging, smart dimensions, easy repair, very save (this is my personal opinion) riding inmotion: illumination for traffic perfect, handle button a big +, trolley grip two big ++ Both manufacturer has BAD apps to operate the onewheel, not usefull, not easy to use, ONLY nice to have The apps don´t support not so the safety of riding Both manufacturer has not a good service in Europe Both manufacturer don´t look for approval modest/registration on streets I use the onwwheel every day for the was to work and back (in summary appr. 20km per day) and I hope the transporting tool will be in the future the same as a bicycle, even the footprint is better of the onewheel Kindly Regards to all users
