  1. Hi Guys, I am from Germany and I am am very interested in the hobby of eucs. I was trying to get as much information as possible about what kind of euc to get for a beginner. I don't want to get a slow euc that I possibly outgrow pretty fast so I am eyeballing the mcm5 v2 for the last week and i almost ordered it from Ali for about 900€. Then there was a used GW Msuper X showing up on local eBay sales. It costs around 1000€, so it is a bit more expensive, 1,5 years old with 3500 km ridden. The Guy seems to be an enthusiast and cared a Lot about it - brighter headlight, New Ambient LE
  2. Excitement: (backstory) My MCM5 arrives today and I am beyond excited! I saw my first EUC about a year and a half ago at a flow arts festival in Georgia. It seemed awesome, but I was too distracted by my sweet new LED juggling clubs to pay much attention to it. About a year ago, a few of my circus friends in Denver got themselves V8s and it reminded me of how awesome a wheel would be for Denver commuting. I started doing a bit of research and decided that a 16S would be a perfect wheel to get me started. I started saving everything I could for the 16S and about a week away from havin
  3. 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
  4. I modded my MCM5 to ride on Chao Yang 14x2.5" wide tire. The stock MCM5 is 14x2.125" wide. I am used to wider tires (mten3, Z10, Nikola). I was not comfortable with the stock MCM5 tire. @RoCan modded his MCM5 for the 2.5" wide tire. This tire mod require cutting away a portion of the front and back shell cover along with the outer edges of the wheel well. I took @RoCan advice and made sure I cut away enough material so there is ample clearance for the wide tire. The clearance I was shooting for was 3" from edge to edge. This means the last two bottom shell screw holes were cut off. I plan to u
  5. I've a MCM5 V1 (2.125" tire) and I'm pretty happy with it. I love this wheel. Agile, fast, funny. Now I've read that Gotway is selling this wheel with 2.5" tire. I know there's a way to change the tire but I'm not so good in this kind of stuff. Moreover, I've read that if you have a MCM5 V1 (like I do, I guess) you cannot just change the tire but it's longer work. By the way, I'm thinking about selling my wheel and buy the newest one. What you guys think? Is it a good idea? What could be advantages and disadvantages moving from 2.125 to 2.5" tire... Thanks for your help
  6. @Marty Backesaid MSP is the most powerful wheel yet. If that's true, we should be able to measure it, right? Right! Friends and I got ahold of the EUCO demo wheel, and put it head-to-head with the prior high-torque wheels, MSX and MCM5. These runs were timed with a manual stopwatch, over a fixed distance. Notable results: The MSX owner (Rider 1) was fastest up our hill on MCM5, not MSP! But we can see from his current log that he wasn't comfortable taking the MSP to its maximum output. The MCM5 owner (Rider 2) was fastest with MSP, not MCM5! We can see that
  7. Yesterday, I got into my worst EUC accident. Somewhere between 23 and 30mph I got a cut-out on the MCM5. Someone was watching over me as even I was wearing shorts, a T-Shirt, and no protective pads or Helmet and did perfect roll fall. I have very minor scrapes on my hands, my elbow looks like pizza, and there is a little road rash on my shoulder. I KNOW, NOT WEARING PROTECTION IS STUPID. I USUALLY DO. Generally, I rarely break the 20mph marker on the MCM5. I'm usually riding with my son at about 15-17mph. His MTen3 alarm goes off at 18-19mph. I turn off all alarms on mine but will slow do
  8. This will be my ongoing review/experiences with the MC5. I plan to update this every few days until the wheel feels like a part me and not something I'm standing on. A little background: I started on a freeman A4 132wh. After a week I ordered a ks16s from ewheels and have put 620 miles on it in the last few months. I love my 16s and plan to keep commuting on that wheel after I learn how to properly ride the MCM5. I needed a 2nd wheel (the freeman I dont think really counts as a "real wheel") because I taught my dad (68yrs old!) how to ride. Hes ready to go on a ride vs practicing d
  9. About a year ago, I bought an InMotion V8 secondhand for $550 (it had about 500 miles on it). It was a great wheel to learn on, and it turned out to be perfect for commuting. At only 30 pounds, it wasn’t too heavy to lug up the stairs in the train station and up to the second floor of MetroLink train cars. It topped off at 19 mph, but that was plenty fast for my six-mile wheel commute each way (four miles from Cerritos to the Norwalk/Santa Fe Springs MetroLink station, and two miles from the Glendale MetroLink station to work). The trolly handle was very easy to engage and disengage, which
  10. Hi there! I've just received this awesome EUC. I've rode it for a while. When stopped I've started hearing both the whistle of the EUC turned on (and that's normal) and the cooling fan. And I guess it is normal too. But even after a while that the EUC is stopped, the fan starts and stops every few seconds. Is it normal? Thanks!
  11. First I will like to say thanks to all the people that post and create this forum, is really the best source of information related to electric unicycles and a great help. I enter in this unicycle world by chance, as my first unicycle was a present from a friend, I never imagine before that these tinny things can be such convenient and fun way of transportation as they are. Just to put this review on context my previous is experience is 1800km on a Ninebot C (with a 320Wh battery) and I have ridden several other unicycles but just for a short period of time (V5D, V8, Monster etc.)
  12. UPDATE 23 11 2018 Black Friday special I'm using the same page and links for previous 1111 special event, prices doesnt change a lot +/- 20$/20euros The biggest day of promotions and flash sales in China, the 11-11, will of course bring many offers on import sites such as Aliexpress, Gearbest, and many others. Coupons are vouchers or discount codes on products. To obtain them, simply create an account on which the coupons will be registered for the corresponding purchase. Either they are generalized to the site (for example 10% reduc on the whole site), or they are s
  13. I have been occasionally riding a Ninebot C (with a battery of 320Wh) for the last 2 years (2000km approx.) and I have planned for an upgrade nearly since then (the limited speed of the C make it quite unpractical in most of the scenarios) but for one reason or another I never did it. My initial replacement idea was the V8 (I put the deposit for one, before the release) and late on the KS16S (I just read good reviews about it), but from some time on and because of this forum I have been quite tempted to go for a Gotway. Finally I get a good excuse for a change (6km + 55km train +10km
  14. I've just received my Gotway MCM5 and went for a short ride. So far it's an excellent EUC!
  15. Looks like the MCM5 has landed in Paris / Gyroroue shop:
