    The Flying Finn, Dismason

    Hello My name is Carl Irjala and I live here in the city of Kotka, which is near the Russian border. If you allow, I wish to start writing to you about my experiences as a brand new electric unicyclist. I'm a soaring pilot with several hundred landings behind me. So when I saw a video on YouTube that told that riding an EUC feels like flying I became instantly interested about it. So my first topic is about the experience of buying my first EUC and the learning process. The EUC brand is here in Finland so new that I had to search abroad to get reasonable information about it. My mother tongue is Swedish and Finnish. In those languages there is not enough information that would make me to buy an EUC. Luckily, I found this forum and the members' YouTube videos. Lots of sellers at the Internet do not communicates in English, so I was totaly dependent on the information you provide in this forum. Another matter that affected the choice of my first EUC was transport and tax costs. I have bought a lot of products directly from America and China, but sometimes the goods come with a shipping / duty surcharge that can be up to one hundred percent of the value of the product and sometimes not. So this makes the purchase a little risky. I found only one seller who provided clear information about shipping and taxation charges to Finland. After payment, it only took five days to get home the product from Poland (see image files). So in full, the whole process was quite easy. My next post will be a video about learning to ride the EUC. In that video you will see a whole new method how to do it. So, stay tuned on this topic. Kind regards Carl

    GyroMetrics

    GyroMetrics is a free application for logging data and controlling an EUC in a device independent way. See for an introduction. 9BMetrics worked with Ninebot and now it works with Ninebot, Gotway, Kingsong and InMotion. As I don't have all the wheels some support is better than others and all feedback is welcome. The application also uses the AppleWatch if available for showing information, starting/stopping recording and locking/unlocking the wheel or sounding the horn (in Kingsong), @Chriull has devloppend some GNUPLOT scripts for presenting the information which are vailable here. Also some Python generic scripts are available at following posts. First Gyrometrics version is 2.5 which has the following differences with 9BMetrics 2.4: - For Ninebot Users You may enable or disable speed limit from settings while connected You may lock / unlock wheel when connected From the watch you may lock / unlock the weel by doing hard press and selectiong the option in the menu - For KingSong Users Now horn works from the watch. Just a double tap in the center field and should play it - For InMotion Users (all beta features, sorry my accesibility is rare) Disabled serial number checking. Should connect with V8 Lock / Unlock may or may not work as explained for Ninebot Users - For everybody Python Scripts that work in Pythonista and in normal desktop environments (They work in the iPhone ) for plotting data directly from new .9bz archives. Will put them in the GyroMetrics topic Working in new features : Current visible in the watch, color shows direction Battery color will change to orange in phone and watch if battery level > 90% and current is < 0 Other features : Incremental saving - So if application crashes ypu don't loose all data Autocalibration of distance and speed
  5. Hi all There are some places still selling the batery pack for the kingsong KS-14b. This is an 16 cell pack (16 in serie) with 174wh that maybe can be used in other euc, so for 100€ doesn't look a bad value for the money if my assumption are correct. Can anyone tell me if this baterry pack as bms included? And what it is connected to the metal contacts? Thanks

    Replacement pads for 14S

    I just got a KS 14S yesterday and am slowly learning to ride. Does anyone know where I can get replacement pads without the logo?
  9. Just here to give my opinions on the Ninebot Mini and why its a more dangerous than any other EUCs and see if anyone else here agrees with me. The argument: Last year before Christmas I bought a Ninebot Mini I had a go on it and realized not only was it less fun because you were required to go in a straight line but significantly more dangerous over riding any EUC. In fact I think the Mini should be speed limited to only 10-12km/h max and not 18! When riding at higher speeds and the floor is uneven you are having to adjust your body to the way the road is. For example when you ride on a slope where your only ONE of your wheels are lower or higher you would have to tilt to the direction that is higher to remain balance. For eg: If you are riding on the side walk and on your left there is a wheel chair ramp making the left wheel dip lower than the right wheel for a short bit you will have to quickly adjust your body to the right so remain balance if you stood still you will lose control. The other concern is that when you do so to maintain your centre of gravity you could knock that pole that controls the left or right, this has also become a major issue when riding on uneven surfaces. Unlike riding on an EUC the centre of gravity is between your foot at the point where the wheel hits the floor making it easy to glide over rougher terrains. On the Ninebot mini you are forced to adjust your body to the way the terrain is much more than what is required from an EUC. The benefit however of the Ninebot Mini is that you are able to pick it up quickly, and stand in place really easily. In short...after owning the Ninebot Mini I quickly sold it(without even owning it for 2 weeks) knowing the dangers that would possess with it and made a hefty profit during the Christmas season. My first actual post on the forum, thanks for reading Jack
  10. Okay... I'm getting so, so, so frustrated with my EUC experience. I really need help. I got my KS18S in late September. I started regularly riding it in late October. In January, it malfunctioned and threw me, sending me to the hospital. The company gave me a new EUC, but since my tire went flat, it's been a shitshow. It took me a while to order the special inner tubes, but I've reassembled the EUC thrice, with it malfunctioning in different ways each time I've tried starting it. I don't think changing a tire should involve directly plugging/unplugging delicate things into the circuit board. The last couple times I assembled it, it accelerated uncontrollably when turned on. Now it synchs with Bluetooth and a loud female voice shouts something intelligible at me, and the EUC itself doesn't move. Overall, I've been having a terrible experience with my EUC. I've been sending emails back and forth with the retailer, but these companies should be providing more support. What's your experience with EUC maintenance been like? Does Gotway provide better customer service?
  11. Grüß Euch / Hi All, Deutsch: Ich würde mich freuen, von anderen Einradsüchtigen in Österreich zu hören, und vor allem wo und welche trails ihr so befährt ! Ich werde von Zeit zu Zeit ebenfalls Fotos und Infos von netten EUC Touren posten, die ich gemacht hab. Postet in Englisch oder Deutsch, wie ihr wollt. English: I want to start an Austrian group. Feel free to post in English or German (I live during the week near the UN-City in Vienna, and spotted some EUC riders entering it, maybe they don't speak German). From time to time I'll post infos and fotos about nice EUC trails here in Vienna or in Styria, where I originally come from. Maybe others can do the same for the areas they live in. Cheers, HtG
  12. Hello everyone, do you guys know who has the biggest pedigree so far? Meaning as far as the euc not breaking up, with long term use, or reliability ...etc. In that who can take the most beating: The KS 16s from kingsong? Or the v8 from inmotion?

    Kingsong 14D CUT-OUT !!!!

    On my way to work today my KS14d dropped me twice ! The first time was very minor . Low speed coming off my patio. Took a ~3” ledge at maybe 5mph and boom . The wheel lost its balance , fell forward and tossed me off . I picked it up and it righted it self immediately. Thinking it was a fluke or that maybe I hit a divot or something I continued on to work . Going ~15mph on a slight down hill I encountered another small dip . I was ejected forward again , this time hitting the pavement HARD!! . My lip is swollen like a golf ball. Ribs bruised . It’s bad ! Again picked up the wheel and it again righted itself immediately. I limped very very slowly to work . Battery was full and I wasn’t at max speed btw.

    King Song 14D

    So I’ve had my KS14D for about a month now and I have to say ...it’s awesome . A while back I started commuting to and from work on a Segway Mini Pro , it was great at first but soon got very dull. So I started looking into EUC’s. After a lot of research and sleepless nights staying up and looking at all things EUC I decided on the 14D with the help of @Joey Serrin at ewheels. Within 5 days it came across the country and landed on my front porch . Man was I excited ! That first night it was pouring down rain so I took to the hallway to get a feel for it. I have to say that was a very discouraging 3 hours . I couldn’t go 5 feet without losing my balance and stepping off . The next day I took it to the parking lot at my work and spent 5hours honing my skills. The wheel took a few tumbles and despite my fears it held up to all the punishment I threw its way! So big kudos to kingsong for making a really rugged machine! By the end of the night I was able to ride it all the way back home . Now the fun had really started . My overall impressions are that the thing is built like a tank , maneuvers on a dime after getting the hang of it and is actually pretty fast . It’s capable of riding right at its limit (about 18mph) with ease . The D sports a 420wh battery which is small in comparison to other wheels but is more than adequate for my 3mile round trip to work and most days I take it along the hiking trails around the lake near my house and it performs very well there too. I was actually really surprised with how adept it is off road , large roots , sand, grass , gravel , light mud ...it eats it all up. And speaking of the lake : On about day 4 I got really comfortable (too comfortable) and went on a night time trail ride . I hit a root I didn’t see coming and my foot slipped off a pedal and landed on another root , twisting my ankle and causing me to lose the wheel ...it ended up completely submerged in a deep puddle/overflowed segment of one of the streams . I grabbed the wheel out as soon as I figured out where it was (maybe 5-10 seconds..maybe more it was a tense time ) powered it off and whiped it down . To my surprise it was perfectly fine ! I turned it back on and rode it home . No issues to date . if you’re on the fence about your first wheel or maybe upgrading from a Ninebot or inmotion v5 this is the one ! Very reasonable price at $770 and a real beast in all conditions.
  17. Hi all! Looking to purchase a KingSong 14D. Have been reading reviews for waaay too long and think it's time to dive in. Sadly, it seems like I just missed a couple sales of the KS14D in the past month, but hoping someone else is out there in the NYC area or within the US looking to upgrade. Seems like market price is around $500 depending on condition. Give me a shout, cuz I'd love to hear from you! Can't wait to start riding! Have a good day! =)
  18. Following up on @Marty Backe and his disappointment in the KS-18s range I decided to do another 100-0% test on my KS-16s which I haven't done for a pretty long time, just in case I remembered wrong. I know I have been somewhat disappointed in the range of my 16s for quite some time. I start to get noticeable performance throttling as high as 40-50% battery. If you are using a charge doctor to start at 80% this doesn't give you very much "fun" range to play with. Below 35% the performance drops to just barely faster than a ninebot, around 15 mph. Below 15% you are limited to 12 mph. So from 100-0% today I got 23.5 miles, approximately 2.5 hrs of riding. To be fair this is on the hills of San Francisco both up and down some fairly steep inclines over the course of the test. I generally only feel good about riding my KS-16s for about 10-15 miles most days. Once it starts to throttle your top speed it also starts to struggle to climb hills and does not take well to hitting bumps at speed. Since I live in an urban area full of steep hills I always feel these effects if I ride more than 5 miles one way since my home is on top of a giant hill. So if I had double the battery (840 in my 16s to the 1680 of the 18s) I would have made 47 miles. This is almost exactly what Marty got I believe so I feel like those who have speculated one of the three battery packs may be disconnected are likely wrong. It really probably only goes ~45 miles if it is roughly double the endurance of my 16s. Since I use my 16s primarily to commute 7 miles per day roughly the range does not stop it from fulfilling that primary function. However, it really is not enough to go on longer group rides or extended hill climbing as the battery starts to limit your performance to the point where you could not keep up with the group within a fairly short amount of time. That being said the wheel has been great for traveling around the city and I still have fun riding it - but it just turns out the practical usable range for me is so far below what is commonly described on this forum that I feel like people should be informed. If I'd known the range was that limited I might have chosen a different wheel instead. What do you guys think? Are the riding conditions here (cold and hilly) making this more of an issue for me than for the average 16s owner? Or have others noticed this as well?

    KS16s gryoscope fail?

    My KS16s had an odd issue today. When I was walking it with the trolly the gyroscope seemed to fail. It would tilt forward as if out of power but then it would stop tilting after reaching maybe 20 degrees. Then it would stay that way for a bit and then start tilting back the other way until it was 20 degrees past horizontal in the opposite direction. It repeated this a couple times within a minute before I got back home. Thank god I wasn't actually riding on it when this happened, could have thrown me if it happened at high speed I suppose. Any idea what causes this? Should I stop riding it altogether just in case?

    New to EUC

    Hi Guys, I need your help deciding on a wheel. I am from Australia and I have been researching this for quite sometime now. I can't seem to make a decision. Gotway seems to have the best capacity in the market but the worst quality control. With all the reported incidents on youtube; I do want to get the best, sturdiest, off-roading, long rage, highest wh out there but I dont want to die. Now I have seen many people on youtube crashing with Gotways without even reaching half its speed limit... ACM 2 giving up at 15mph after hitting a minute bump on the road. I sense a lot of frustration in many videos with gotways (ACM 2 with a wrong footplace installed). I need someone to give me an honest opinion on what is the best and safest out there for what I want bearing in mind that I dont plan on going any faster than 45 km/h - 96 kg weight
  21. Hi all, I just got a KS-14D a few days ago. Since I had been practicing with my son's InMotion V3C (two small tires on one central wheel) I could get the grasp of this "real" monocycle pretty fast, and I can drive it already around town. However, I have noticed that when going straight on flat roads and over 20 km/h the wheel kind of wiggles or shakes a little side to side, like it's going to loose balance. I can handle it but it's uncomfortable and I don't understand why it's happening. I have moved the riding settings in the app from medium to hard/experienced, but still happening. Is it me not riding it properly? Is it some kind of calibration that needs to be made? Any help is welcome. Thanks! Daniel.

    Kingsong KS-16S best color?

    Hello, I am abut to order a Kingsong KS-16S, and I will like your recommendations for the best looking and most practical color to have it?
  23. Urna Semper Stan O'nymos January 3, 2018 Ooh lala The KS18S The night looks better in electronic shades of green. In the 1930's France decided if the world was collapsing under the great depression, France was, before the final end of civilization, going to finally show the world its superiority in the form of automobiles. They began unceremoniously with push button electronic transmissions that had 6 gear speeds in forward or reverse. Later there were water cooled inline six cylinder fuel injected engines capable of 80mph in the beginning and by the end of 1939 you could cruise at 110 mph in a hardtop retractable convertible down the Champs Elysees on spanked pigs leather upholstered seats blinding all onlookers with spools of chrome accenture off curvy hips fashioned from metal over the fenders and skirts. The styling began, well how do I say this, not so British as to offend the eyes, but wound up evoking the lines and movements of giant chrome accented majestic biplanes glistening in the sky as they roared past the throngs of unwashed hankering for a hunk of cheese cake. These cars hovered more than wheeled on the chassis powered by the thundering inline six dual header sans catalytic converter. Fun names like Delage, and Delahaye, Peugeot, or El Glaoui who was known as Lord of the Atlas and was the Pasha of Marrakesh, ruled the times. No longer was the car just a noisier wagon wheeled moving money pit, less dependable, sluggish, pollution machine of pain and sorrow. Now in 1939 it was fancy and able to go at tremendous speeds in luxury and safety as well. No wonder why Hitler was so upset at the French. It will be told in history books of the future that Electric Unicycles have now reached that similar period in their development. It is so proven with Kingsong's newest release, the KS18s an 18" electric unicycle capable of 30 mph and a range good enough to take you to the Piggly Wiggly grocery store in Zebulon from Rural North Carolina and back. Thats as fast as a horse. Styling of today's so called futuristic wheels is such infantile braggadocio. Yeah? You know what the Segway a1A looks like? Correct it looks like a wheel. How brave those designers must feel. They have reached into the future and come up with - nothing. Im not buying it. Kingsong, like their designs or not, have always been voluptuous with the lines on their machines. I own a 500w KS14 that looks like a stretched out "portable" Singer sewing machine in its plastic case. It really is something out of a 1960's science fiction TV show of what a robot companion would look like in the year 2020, which is only 2 years away so that makes Kingsong almost 5 years ahead of the game already. This new much larger wheeled big brother looks like Darth Vader's helmet if it was pressed in a 3 Stooges sized vice. Oddly enough it makes no difference whether you look at it from the front rear or either side. You will still see the dark side staring out at you from the honeycombed metal bluetooth speaker covers. The KS18s and the KS18ay both have quadraphonic bluetooth speaker systems capable of conversation squashing sound wherever you wish to go. The USB port above the power button assures you that the STREAMING can continue as long as their networks deems so. I would guess the white cases look like a storm trooper's helmet, and they do in all the pictures I have seen them in, which is one. C'mon, who wouldn't rather be Darth? Onto the ride, but wait the app. It has been restyled and much of your well thought out comments were lost in translation, but it is more colorful and it is easier to access the set up modes for speed, ride, and vertical calibration. Vertical calibration is essential to setting up the vehicle for style of lean while on the vehicle. I am short, so I found myself leaning too far beyond the pads. Just enter the calibration mode and lean the machine a little forward. Voila! Setting up the ride is an equally easy task, but not even Confucius himself could solve the speed warning settings riddle. I will be asking kingsong customer support about this paper finger trap where every level I would like to put it at is rejected or fails. So far I have only received the first warning which is set to around 23mph. This machine drives like a Mercedes G class SUV. Perfectly suited for the absentminded fellow or housewife who doesnt always notice that the sidewalk is not ended by a ramp but a curb or the giant root bulge in the road that is milliseconds away. The KS18s has handled both of those obstacles at low to medium low speed without me even having the feeling that I needed to panic or brace for a launch. It has a nearly 3" wide tire and that and the larger diameter really smooth out the worst of the road. Oddly enough, certain smaller bumps act more as ramps than the bumps I was accustomed to treat them as on my 16" V8. The KS18 rides the offroad trails like a Clydesdale who has consumed a liter of redbull. It has power, 1500w of constant and double that at the peaks. It has so much power that I find myself leaning far too forward because of the unbelievable climbing strength and sandiness of the soil it just wants to plough through and will with a little patience and less panicked verve on my part. The KS18s is heavy, heavier still with the 1680wh battery pack, but it handles like it wants to be a baby lamb. It can turn on a dime and head up a leaned over tree if you let it. At first it can handle like trying to retrieve a hat from the ground while closing a diesel truck door. It is that thrill of cheating certain digital amputation that encourages the rider to quickly learn how to carve a 90° corner like Betty Crocker spreading icing on her mother's birthday cake. It is a quick learning curve and one you will want to do out of passion because of the ride the KS18s delivers. I am 145lbs with boots and a hat and just over 5 and a half feet tall, so hearing giants over 6" tall tell me how much fun it is,... Well I was skeptical. I am no longer a skeptic. This thing charges up the steepest hills, carves out a perfect arc on a busy street, and is a champ on grass or dirt trails. Stopping while going downhills is a much bigger chore due to the counterbalance I need to create down steep hills without starting the wobbles. This is getting much better after the first week of riding, and as I get more used to the vehicle's dynamics. The KS18 is remarkably comfortable while riding in foot traffic at slow speed. It is much less noticed than my mTen, perhaps because it is so obvious and therefore easier to predict where its heading. Maybe they just fear it more. Did I mention its heavy? Fortunately it has a space in the tire rim for a lock cable that you can string up to the handle as well. It has a locking mechanism that I am told will disable the vehicle with a passcode. I believe that, since I have been disabled by several passcodes of mine. So I have not tried out this function yet. It is tall, but it comes with a seat that is comfortable and pretty fun in a Charlie Chaplin sort of way. The lights are reversible depending on the direction you are headed in. In other words, if you drive butt first the rear headlight will light up the ground just before you hit whatever danger lurks in the dark and the same if you head face first into life. But hey the tail lights are perfect and activate when braking which is so totally cool! Besides if you are driving Darth Vader's head at night may I suggest some night vision goggles to compliment the look?

  25. Well, I was 95% sure I would be buying a Gotway Tesla but just pulled the trigger on a 16S. I was hemming and hawing over Gotway's reliability concerns but @EcoDrift's post about the insane failure/reject rate of Gotways sealed the deal for me. I know I'm not your target market but I wanted to thank you for your post there and that I highly respect your opinion, considering the volume of wheels you likely move. I did not want to reward a company that plays so free and loose with end-user safety with my business. Anyways, I was spending too much time researching all these different wheels and I felt like I'd have buyers remorse regardless of which wheel I went with and it was stressing me out. I figured the best way to stop stressing about it was to take the plunge and buy one or the other. Knowing myself, I know I'm not the type to wear a full face helmet and my dental insurance probably wouldn't cover catastrophic damage that a face plant at 30 mph would do to me, not to mention whatever other injuries I'd incur if the wheel cut out on me. If I was younger or on the opposite end of the spectrum, retired with pension/investment income, I may have gone with the Tesla but I still need to work for a living. However, I can't help but feel a little regretful thinking about the 30 mph that could have been; the 22 mph max speed will be a tough pill to swallow. I didn't intend for this to turn into a Gotway bashing thread but man, I really, really wish either Kingsong offerred something similar in power/speed/range with their build quality or that Gotway would up their QA (or quality in general). I look forward to continuing to lurk on this forum. Best regards, gr8ps
