  1. Hello, I bought an Inmotion v5+ about two months ago. Now It has already 500km. I'm writing here because I'd like to increase the speed of my wheel but I don't know what is the procedure. Please, someone can help me? I heared that exist an apk to do that, but I would not be able to figure out how it works.. Thank you
  2. Upgraded from a Tesla v2 to a Nikola AR+ and was wondering about what modifications I could make to it. One of the first things I noticed is that the stock pads (oval) make the wheel fatter and uncomfortable to ride, so I bought some motorcycle tank pads for grip. I also added soft velcro on the sides of the handle slot to give it more friction, as I'm sure I don't want the handle popping out during a crash. Something tells me that I need power pads for wheel torque, as this wheel is harder to get going than the Tesla. Also factory calibration might be a degree forward, which makes things harder, but I'm not sure if I can get a better calibration (aiming for a degree backward instead) without proper tools to ensure leveling. Is there a way to remove the logo on the back to get a proper rear light? Or should I just go for a standalone light strapped to the handle (either battery powered or connected to the wheel itself) I've been told that only the inside of the shell (above the tire) needs waterproofing, along with tape on the power button. Is that all? Any recommendations for waterproofing this wheel in general are welcome. On a side note, only got to ride the Nikola AR+ yesterday (been raining all day today) but so far I love it. It checks off all the boxes I had in mind : Higher range, higher top speed (so safer cruising at 30mph), robust shell without water ingress through handle, powerful night lights, broader tire, and stability at high speeds. Might have to pick up chest/shoulder/back protection, now that I'll be travelling at high speeds regularly, so doing my due diligence and weighing my options (either Lazyrolling jackets or motorcycle armor).
  3. Hi Peeps. I've been riding the Gotway Tesla for nearly 5 months and decided I want to upgrade the tyre to a wider tyre. I've heard people say they upgraded to a 2.4 or 2.5 inch road tyre but never seen anybody say what tyre and provide links to where to buy it from. I would be grateful if you could provide links im based in the UK and fancy seeing what the ride difference will be on a wider tyre. Thanks alot in advance
  4. I really would like a USB charger on the Veteran Sherman. I feel like this is the one essential accessory missing from this wheel. I've have successfully added this type of 12v adapter to other devices for convenience. Without yet having the Veteran Sherman there is no way for me to know the best place to tap into the board for power. I do however think this would be a great addition as it would not only allow you to add a USB adapter but just about any 12v accessory. If your only looking for a USB connection the other adapter (see photo) would work as well. Ideas, thoughts, suggestions or alternatives are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  5. https://www.facebook.com/105016854639001/posts/139047997902553/ Custom made pedal set for V11. What do you think?
  6. Hi, i'd like to ask the community for some help. Now that our wheels cost more money and are widely known to (some) people, are prone to stealing. We had a case of a friend here in Greece that someone stole his KS16S when he was buying some coffee. Me personally, i rock a Nikola Plus 100V with the 21700 cells, that from what i've seen so far from other wheels and my one, no-one uses the on-board USB charging port, so i thought why not REVERSING IT, so it can be used from inside the wheel for a specific purpose or even diy stuff. For example see this : i've got so much empty space on the upper part of the wheel, a compartment that in other variants of the Nikola (or plus) is filled with extra battery pack or even the actual board (see Nikola 84V) So, i'm thinking if i can have the 5V port inside the wheel i can install one of the following things : a gps tracker a spare android phone that is used as a gps tracker more speakers ( ) but last, the best thing that is missing from this wheel extra cooling fans cause as @Marty Backe mentioned in his video "First impressions" at 13:40 talks about the fan that is there just to circulate the air, cause this wheel doesn't have proper ventilation. So....... What are your opinions and/or suggestions about the reversal of the USB port, the possibilities are "∞" i also have a raspberry pi3 with a x4 breadboard, i could do so many things inside the wheel, but first things first i could REALLY install extra fans and circulate the air properly!!! Does anyone know how to reverse the usb port and make it internal ? maybe friends that know how things work, @esaj or @enaon ?
  7. I just did this to mine. Has anyone else tried this? It's really bright and I haven't even seen it at night yet.
  8. I just got a new shell for my V8. I would love to be able to protect it from scratches somehow (without using the cover that came with the wheel), keeping the LEDs visible. So that got me wondering if anyone has ever tried Clear Vinyl Wrap on their V8 or V10 (or if anyone has ever used it for something similar): https://www.amazon.com/s?k=clear+vinyl+wrap&ref=nb_sb_noss_2 Do you guys think? Would help to prolong the shell's life? Would it be a nightmare to install?
  9. Hello! New to EUC in general and I'm still waiting on my Gotway Tesla V2 to come in the mail. However, while I wait, I'm trying to figure out if there are any creative DIY instructions to create a seat. I saw this video by "U-Stride" and thought it was a great idea, but curious to see if there are other ways to do this for the wheel.
  10. Reason 1, constant scraping asphalt in turns (snagging) Reasons 2, constant snagging roots and rocks at offroad (falling) Reason 3, align gyro cutout angle with "pedal hits ground angle" (warning before, but not too early) 1 & 2. Tired of pedals snagging stuff throwing me off in high soeed cornering or in the woods was the main reason for this mod 3. after i saw Chooch's video where he cutout in a velodrome, i thought it looked far to horisontal to cause a gyro based cutout. So I tested out the angle on my GW Tesla v1.2. before this i had demonstrated the cutout angle for 2 fellow eucist and they both agreed it was far more than 45 degrees. I totally agreed, looked like a cutout around 50-55°.... BUT....math is math...and eyes are eyes. So lets test it. Before the video i tested this out several times with my calibrated galaxy s9+ clinometer (calibrated to a level of test equipment we use at work with pedigree accuracy...the iPhone was a few degrees off but the end result only differed around 2°...iPhone was not possible to get as accurate, but video on Samsung was a lot better so I still chose Apple as level and Samsung as video device) I am aware that the flex in the handle bar removes some accury, but when testing by holding handle +wheel) it was less than 1° difference where it cuts out. Also silver tape might seem bad, but i aligned the phone so that no buttons changed vertical angle from deviating from 0° and basically found the sweet spot where it JUST balanced around 0° and calibrated 0 point there. Tested other direction and cutout came around 1° later, probably board is not 100% level.. Or phone is not. All in all the meassurement error is well below 4° (most likely around 2°.. At least it was with my Android and and result only differed a few degrees after several tests) So, modification for permanent angled pedals on GW Tesla. Took some time to test out with metal glue as a start, then super tacky adhesive tape and then i realized i needed to go to the work shop and find the correct angle of the shims and a more permanent fastening solution (screws + metallic glue (loctite for metal) + loctite (blue)) Here is the result And this looks crazy...the angle... at least when you see pedal angle in video..im aware 😜 But I can only say what i experience and that is: - MUCH better control of the wheel (after raising kuji pads to fit new higher position of ankle to match steeper pedals) - Allmost Impossible to scrape pedals (except slow speed srapes, thats allmost allways possible unless wheel cutout first of course.. Which now is damn close) - And about cutout, pedals touch ground just a few degrees before cutout, so the moment i feel something pushing pedal (or hear metal scraping) i know i have to step back. A few degrees is A LOT when hovering around 40° degrees, its nothing you hit by "accident"...I hope 😁 Make up you own mind if this angle is possible to hit on a banked curved in gravel, with a bicycle tyre, in high speed. Personally i think it will be hard to hit that angle on ASPHALT even when tyre is Sticky(hot summer day)...well the amount of stickiness a bicycle can produce anyway :-) Youtube obviously made quality CRAP but basically pedals touch around 38-39° and gyro cutout is around 40-41°. Hope You can see the angle readout if you change rez to 1080p, ore upload it was ultra clear at least even after rezizing from 4K to 1080p
  11. As you may have already guessed, this is the Raspberry Pi corner of this forum There is a new board out there that can fit inside the innards of our EUCs with ease.. The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B I have already intergraded two devices into my house, one inside the electrical panel that controls my water heatsink and other stuff using OpenHAB and the other one sits on the livingroom connected to my tv as a media theater system (kodi former xbmc) but doubles down as a seedbox (rtorrent+rutorrent). And now to the thread subject, are you guys up to some geeky mods using a raspberry and our EUCs?? Before attempting to get into the raspberry wagon, there are some things need to pointed out : A way to power these little beast of machines using a pico-psu and/or others. A way to interconnect it with other devices, modding the case for ports, using wifi-dongles, bluetooth or cellular, etc Extra things attached to the Pi so the EUC gets extra functionality Known connectors for data transmission thru the Pi, storage and others. This is by "far" the best subject of discussion if you are up to modding. In my honest opinion i don't just do stuff by hand, a friend of mine does most of the wiring etc but i do the setting up, programming, etc. I'd like your honest opinion on the matter, and if you are interested please leave a comment. cc. @esaj i think you'll love this mod thread And forgot to mention the little brother of the Raspberry Family, the model "ZERO" The little guy that also packs a punch and can fit almost everywhere.. Just look at that comparison guys.. Now start imagining the possibilities..
  12. Hi all, I wanted to share with you the mods I've done to the two electric unicycles I've had for the moment by adding padding to avoid the leg pain we all experienced at the beginning, mainly when learning. Some may have got used to it, however I never did as after a while not being able to keep learning due to the pain, I found the solution, adding good padding (not the one that comes by default, not enough). So on my first electric unicycle, a generic one, I added 2x "bike seat gel protection" (3 Eur each, cutting the part that attaches to the seat), using mounting tape (double sided tape would have been cleaner), here the result: I think it may be the most comfortable I've tried. However, the pedals could not close completely and one got soft after some time and would not stay up. My next padding mod was when I got my IPS Lhotz, again it was painful as it only has a bit of padding on the top of the side and it is not very soft. This time I used the EPE Foam that came on the shipping box of the unicycle, some red plastic from a bag/folder for documents and double sided tape. The result, also comfortable, but not as much as the gel seats. From the video I've on YouTube: Here the state of it after a year, dirty and falling apart: Both the mounting tape and the double sided tape I used were hard to remove, so you better try it a bit before carefully putting it together Now I was looking for a new padding, I found two new options: work knee pads and knee-elbow soft guards/pads. The work knee pads are not flat, so could not really use them and also were not comfortable enough. I decided it was time to try the knee-elbow soft guards/pads as the were comfortable. The result is pretty good and they are comfortable! Let's see once I use them to go to work or for a long MeetUp ride how do they feel. Let us see your padding mods!
  13. I saw this topic on General forum, but I would like to get into Z10 specifics. I would love to add this to my Z10, hidden underneath the shell. https://www.crutchfield.com/p_305TRACKER/Samsung-SmartThings-GPS-Tracker.html This tracker is pretty small, so I would guess, it will be possible to find a spot for it somewhere. The thing to solve, would be a charger. Z10 does not include USB port, unfortunately. So it's not super ez-mode. Questions to forum - does this makes any sense? And where would be a good place to put the tracker, and where to get the 5/12 volts for the charging? Thank you.
  14. Hello! Tomorrow i get my Z10 upgrade, its gonna be my first powered up wheel, and i thought i search for some stickers / decals for it, as i had on my firewheel clone, and i know that there are plenty for ninebot one euc's like the e/p/s2 models. I've seen designs like captain america shield, pokemon pokeball (funny) and more. But, i can't seem to find anything about the Z series. I've searched for Kingsong stickers, nothing, I also searched for InMotion stickers, still nothing! Why there aren't any out there, i know it's a burden to have them removed, but there are some stickers out there, like the ones i have on my mac book air, that can be removed easily and don't leave a trace of glue or any kind of residue. If you have any idea/links/something, please share it with me/us (the community). And, last, can we print out stickers from a design we like on a printer that cuts it sticker in the right places so we can remove it with ease and put it on a wheel!?!! If yes are there there specs/dimensions about wheels anywhere? Lot's of questions, but had'em on my mind for so long!
  15. Here is the parts list (total cost less than $10USD): 1. 2x flat nylon washers (about $1 for 6) 2. 2x flat steel washers (about $4 for 100) 3. 1x 6" section of 5/8" self-stick corner guard (about $3 for 4-8') 4. stubby screwdriver - BYOT See the video linked here and discussed here. The instructions are embedded in the photos. If you have any questions or comments, just ask.
  16. There is a pedal mod from Hong Kong Z Team riders.
  17. As people know it is hard to find a way to lock a KS. This is my solution. I drilled a 3/8" angled hole through the pedal from the bottom . The hole is angled so that it come out the existing pedal screw hole. When the lock is in the hole it blocks the screw hole that allows you to remove the pedal. Technically you could still remove the pin from the other side but it would not be easy trying to suck the pin out. I use a full size 10 foot master cable lock so that I can lock two bikes and two EUCs but you could also use a regular full size lock. ( As you can see this is a learner wheel. Five people have learned to ride on this wheel so far. )
  18. Good day to all! Since recently, I became a lucky owner of Rockwheel GT-16. This wheel is a dream for quick ride and all is fine. But after I had to carry the wheel on myself hoping for the last blinking led i found that the battery indicators must be improved. In stock these 10 led indicators that can't objectively give you battery level information. On my previous wheel Firewheel indicator showed level and percentage of battery remain. So i decided to do same small upgrade of indication on my new Rock. Long thought and tried where to place it. But last moment i decided to keep original design and install new indicator in place of one of the stock indicators. I had to cut the body inside, replace the dark plexiglas with a transparent one, shorten the standard display board. Here is my result. Everything took about 2-3 hours + about 3-4 $ for the indicator. I bought it from Ali. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/12V24V36V48V60V72V84V/32845700146.html I will be glad to hear your stories. Who changed something in wheels?
  19. I'd love to see your creation's. Whether it's about looks, add-ons, modifications, enhancement or just for pure coolness.
  20. Here’s my DIY ‘suspension’ cushion to make the ride smoother
  21. This forum post has a ton of researched information and links about the interaction between a battery, ESC, and motor, particularly the role of the power-filter capacitors. The takeaway is that shortening the battery wires will always be better for the longevity of the electronics, as well as potentially improving performance. I may be wrong about this next part, but I also think that most EUC's would benefit from larger power capacitors (in the range of 4700-10,000uF; as opposed to the ~2,000uF found in most) I expect it would be better for the batteries to experience less "stutter" between charging and discharging while the unicycle starts and stops, and that the added buffer of power could actually help it handle bumps better, by providing an extra 10-15 amps in parallel with the battery pack. It'd also be important to pick capacitors with a low ESR or they won't be able to make use of their capacity. I'm considering adding a couple more on to my msuper v2, just on top of the ones already installed. Fortunately the roomy electronics compartments lends itself to this, compared to more "packed" unicycles.
