  1. I'd like to know how many other 16" EUC riders here have experience with the Maxxix Hookworm 16" street tire. https://www.amazon.com/Maxxis-Hookworm-BMX-Tire-16X1-95/dp/B00188A1LG After recently switching over I can safely say that this will be my tire of choice for my KS16S. I thought the wheel was nimble before but this has brought it to a whole new level. It allows me to make sharp turns and carve like I never thought possible. One downside is that it can make the wheel a bit more prone to wobbles but no big deal. Couldn't recommend higher for all experienced riders of 16" wheels
  2. After seeing Ian's (SpeedyFeet.com) range test of the KS18L I was somewhat alarmed. He documented a large disparity between the King Song's app range and Map My Ride. I got a sinking feeling in my stomach that my "App" claimed 30 mile ride with 38% battery left was a total fallacy. My riding weight is 240 lbs at 6' 4+". That type of performance would have been spectacular for one KW battery. I checked my work commute distance by gps, motorcycle trip meter and Goggle Maps. They all had within .1 of mile at ~ 8.2 miles each way for a total of 16.4 miles. The KS app had the distance at 20 miles. Upon getting an accepting a offer for a group ride, I decided I would use that opportunity to discover my true range. The route was 29.2 miles (it was expended by 4.5 miles) per Goggle Maps. Since it was all bicycle trial (famous and measured) I "assumed" the number to be very accurate. I rode 3 miles (actual) to a train. The app said 3.8 miles. I took a 18 minute train ride to the meetup point. The ride from that point was 25 miles per my fellow rider's Darkbot app. I couldn't precisely map a approximately 4.5 portion where we did a big loop around Valley Forge National Park, but 4.5 per Darkbot seemed about right. The KS app had 30+ miles. I had planned on taking the train back to Philly, but decided to ride back to determine what the KS18:'s maximum range was with me on it. I also wanted to see the effect of Speed dropping as the battery emptied. I made it home with 7% battery crawling at 4-5 mph. The total distance was 32.9 miles. The KS app had me at 41 miles+. The good news is I a never notice a speed reduction until after 20%. There were some, I am sure, but I didn't need to go more than 18-22 mph on crowded bile trails. Between 20% and 10% it would do Ninebot E+ speeds 10-13 mph max. Below 10% it got real ugly lol. I would like to do 100 miles in a day, but I need a little more battery even with a fast charger. I heard a KS18XL might be coming out, but I can't justify buying it. A conversion/update kit, however, would be welcomed. The above it is just the experience of a 240 lb rider on a mostly flat route. YMMV. Enjoy your KS18L!
  3. Hello All, I'm looking to purchase my second EUC, preferably from someone local (Los Angeles, CA area). I doubt it, but if anyone has an Inmotion V10, Ninebot Z10, or KS-18L for sale that would be ideal but I am open to others such as the Gotways. Feel free to post what you have for sale.

    KS18L Firmware 1.07

    Hi, Just did update from v1.06 to v1.07 using king song app v1.50 on Android. Worked as a charm ! Low speed motor off detection seems to work better now. Also battery LED indicator seems to showing real status. Moreover in seems that low battery voltage speed was adjusted... Thanks King Song for frequent updates, looks like you really listen to your customers.

    ARTWheel

    I see a vendor selling what I "assume" to be old King Song models as "ArtWheels by King Song" on eBay I thought maybe he had branded some wheels by King Song and is now stuck with them hoping to unload them on eBay. His prices, however, are high and don't reflect that. Probably not worth starting a new topic, but I was just curious.

    KS-16S max speed (help)

    Hi everyone, I'm hoping someone with more experience with the KS-16S might have some insight to share. I got a brand new 16S from ewheels.com about a week ago, and after some struggle to unlock the speed I got everything working properly, or so I think. My problem is that the wheel seems to max out at around 18-19 MPH. Once I hit that speed I get significant rock-back. I don't have access to the King Song app (I needed to borrow a friend's Android device to unlock the speed), but I've used both the Darkness Bot app and a GPS speedometer app (Speed Box). The Darkness Bot app reports rock-back at 19.5 MPH, and the GPS reports it at around 18 MPH. I've verified the accuracy of the GPS app against my car's speedometer, and it's pretty spot on, though obviously slightly delayed (which may account for the discrepancy between Darkness Bot and GPS). Is there something else I should try to get the speed to hit its max? Any setting or calibration or anything that could be contributing? Are there any known discrepancies between individual wheel performance? I'll double check the wheel's settings in the KS app when I have access to it again, but I'm pretty sure I followed Jason's instructions properly when I unlocked the speed. When I checked online it seemed like people were definitely able to hit the advertised 22MPH/35KPH speeds, so I'm trying to get my wheel fully functional. BTW, I have no desire to ride at max speed frequently. I'm just trying to unlock the wheel's full potential and/or figure out if it has any issues. I'm happy to provide more info if needed. For this test I was on flat ground, with plenty of road and no headwind. I'm also not a heavy person (in case that factors in). Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

  9. The King Song trolley handle is great -- except its beautiful black finish is just skin deep. The slightest nick or scrape reveals white plastic underneath. This afternoon i decided to see what a little black spray on Plasti Dip might look like as a repair. Sorry about the blurry "before" photo, but you get the idea: Before After The process was pretty quick and easy. A preliminary wipe with rubbing alcohol on a microfiber cloth, then three or four light coats of Plasti Dip at a couple minute intervals (over the entire handle). The closeup in the "after" image shows the area of larger damage much more noticeably than just looking at it. I am very pleased with what it looks like. I also like the feel of the Plasti Dip. It's just a little bit "grippier" than the original surface. Now, only time will tell how well it wears. Remind me in three or four months, and I'll post another picture to show wear!
  10. Not many miles on this. Used for a short period of time. Rides perfectly. After 500 GBP in London. If a buyer wants it shipped to them anywhere else they will need to pay and calculate postage costs.
  11. Hey all, I have a 14B travel version of the Kingsong and love it to death, so I picked up a used 14C with the 500w motor and the 520wh battery. It wouldn't charge, so I looked at the charge wires going from the charger port to the brick red battery connector and noticed the polarity was switched on the wires at one of the ends so that the neg connected with the pos at the brick red connector. Having solved that gremlin, I cannot connect it up to the app. I can find it on my bluetooth phone and iTouch and I can connect to the speakers using both android and apple apps, but cannot find it to connect to the app. This is a second hand unicycle so maybe its only paired with one and wont let go, or maybe my app thinks it is trying to connect to my 14B. I read about the speaker hook up and thats how I figured that out, but have no clue as to the app connectivity. When I was fixing the charger issue I did notice a loose black wire which I assumed was the Bluetooth antenna bunched together with the charger wires. Would that cause any interference? Is there a way to reset the device from its guts or by using a different means? I have already taken this thing around 10 miles on a journey and it has been fine, but I want to keep a safe eye on temperature, distance, and speed, and want to adjust the ride and speed warnings and pedal lean back features. Would anyone know how to help me? Can @tinawong be of any assistance? I am quite technically proficient and could perform whatever triage is necessary for the little 14C.

    The Rejuvenation Of A King Song KS-14D

    I received my KS14D Parts a couple weeks back and thought I would post a couple before and after Pictures. And a couple explanations. My poor baby...everything's gonna be ok! New Parts.....F yeah! I was pretty damn amped to get this shiny new body on that sexy frame. Fenders, lights, electronics, pedals, pads, screws and more plastic. So I took her apart like this...in the kitchen. Lol. Ok, maybe not to the girlfriend. Quick test to check the batteries...make sure all is in order. Had to take a skeleton ride real quick for fun. Then back to assembly. And....presto change-o, good as new....minus a few fingerprints. If you are curious as to how it got like that...here is a video of some damage being done. Failing (however rare that may be. Lol) while inventing original tricks like these is what does the damage, mostly! A big reason why my wheel looks the way it does is because I am persistent and finding new things and new places to do them is the driving force behind my riding. Thanx for watching.

  15. Here’s my DIY ‘suspension’ cushion to make the ride smoother
  16. My KS16S 840Wh arrived yesterday evening and here are my initial impressions. I ordered this directly from King Song on the 9th and it arrived on the evening of the 29th. So those of you who are impatient might do best to order it from a local supplier instead Apart from the wheel, there’s nothing much in the box; a flimsy manual and of course a charger, but nothing else. However, the wheel itself looks absolutely gorgeous and gives a quite high quality impression. I ordered the rubber black version and it is very nice to the touch. The serial number starts with “KS16 S2 D …” but I do not know if this means it is already somehow a second iteration on the KS16S or if they all have this model number. I took it out for a short 8 km ride yesterday, but today it started raining so apart from a short early morning trip unfortunately I will have to wait until tomorrow to ride more. Luckily, the wheel arrived with 50% charge so I could immediately take it out for a spin. I had no problem whatsoever to just jump on it and go, although the feeling is a bit different from my other wheels. it seems to have a lot of the manoeuvrability from my IPS Zero but is much easier to balance than the Zero it has the same feeling of heft as my Xima Lhotz although it feels marginally less steady due to having a slightly narrower tire When driving, the sides lit up like disco lights. I am happy that the light show can be turned off in the app. Bling is not my thing. There is also a quite loud “Hello King Song” voice when you start it up - and I soon hit the preset 18km/h preset with the voice going “Please decelerate” so loudly that people around me looked up in surprise. Luckily the voice warnings can be switched to beeps in the app, but unfortunately that cannot be done with the welcoming message. I wish they could have a startup sound as an alternative. Speaking of the app, it is much better than the previous apps I have had. I like the fact that the (iPhone) app tells you how much riding distance you have left - but I wonder if that is just a hard-coded conversion of the battery level or if the app actually takes some of the riding stats it collects into the calculation. It should if it doesn’t already!! The riding mode was initially set to “player” mode which compared to the other wheels I have had is very stiff in the sense that it keeps the foot pedals more or less horizontal. I have read that some have trouble with pressing the foot pedals forward, and do not think acceleration is good. I believe that might be because they are riding the EUC in “player” mode. i switched the setting to “cycling” mode instead and then the pedals can be tilted more forward when accelerating. And, importantly, they can be tilted backwards when braking - something which I found a bit challenging in “player” mode. There is also a softer “learning” mode that I have not tried. Since it was getting dark as I was riding, I noticed that the light sensors automatically turned on the headlight - a nice touch! Speaking of nice touches, the retractable handle is really superb. I was getting tired of always having to carry around my wheel and although the Xima was maybe a couple of kilos lighter, it was still a pain. Now I can roll my KingSong with me when going shopping, for example - great!! On the less positive side, there is a very distinct high-pitched whining noise that I never experienced on the IPS Zero or the Xima Lhotz. A bit annoying, I must say - but I understand that this is quite common with newer wheels. Also, the manual is a mess. It would seem such a simple thing to maybe ask someone on this forum to clean up the English a bit. Maybe they could also supply a link to a more up-to-date digital version of it. The “cycling” mode in the app is not even mentioned in the manual, for example. The manual also says that you should “use the inflation tube” when filling air in the tire - there isn’t one and you do not need one. Overall: I was choosing between the King Song 16S and the Gotway ACM, and right now I feel that I really made the right decision. I don’t want to go faster than 35 km/h since I rather cruise and use less protective gear than try to get myself killed speeding to the max. I get the impression that King Song are focusing more on reliability and staying within the limits here - and that is exactly what I want. Also, after just one day, I already no longer understand how I could live without an integrated handle before!
  17. I tried my new King Song KS-18s 1640Wh and decided to make a video of its cruising speed. I'm 6.2 feet tall and 210 pounds. So far, it's very stable, reliable, fun etc. Link for the video is below:
  18. So yes, I fell in love with EUC, I managed to ride around some KM with my Inmotion V8 learning machine. It’s a great machine and gets me everywhere I like. It’s fast and did not fail me! The only thing that concerned me was the range. After a full charge the battery turns red after about 13 km, with a constant speed of 25 km/h, and a weight of 95 kg (last is probably the biggest factor of range). That’s all good and it let me finish a fun trail, but I want to do some bigger trails and don’t have to worry about my range. I like the 16 inch, and don’t wat to step up to 18 inch (I like to keep it low profile, so not everybody starts to see it as a monster vehicle) Do you guys have valid upgrade options? Which give me at least double the range, and the same speed 25-30 km/h. Don’t need to go faster I really like the constant speed I’m currently used to. I keep looking at the Gotway ACM, 1300 version. Or the king song 16s versions. What do you guys think? Is it even possible with my weight/constant speed. So what are great upgrade routes coming from an Inmotion V8?

    What's the damage?

    How much damage have you done to your EUC? Even if you don't do tricks like me or ride off road, even the best of us fall and subsequently do a little beating up on our wheels. Well....I don't know if anyone wondered what happens to my wheel after doing what I do. Well here's a couple pics folks. EUC Street Pedal Grind before and after. Here's some pics. There's a video rundown on it's way for the almost indestructible KS14D. Wheel aside....I was really damn proud of getting the before and after pics into the same perspective.
