  1. Okay let’s face it... for us hard core riders out there it’s been a fight between the MSX and the Z10 though personally I think it’s a superior wheel even without the detailed experience of the z10 I’ve had to make quite a few customizations to my wheel. share what you’ve done and perhaps it would inspire me and others! Here’s a list of things I’ve done: 1. Put ACM padding on my MSX 2.lowered pedal angles 3.outdoor hiking light mounted by Velcro 4.el wire(three strips u see in the pic) to be visible from the side 5. Mud guard 6. Slime into inner tube 7.put more grip tape as the ones on the pedal were wearing out.
  2. Ok so, Hello again... I have just realised, the 18xl and MSuperX are the same price on Aliexpress... Do you guys have some experiences with those wheels? What wheel gets better range? I know MSX has higher top speed... For a daily commute +- 50km.... Thanks guys, have a great ride!
  3. Time for me to share my thoughts and feelings. When we aren't riding our wheels we're thinking about our wheels or reading about wheels or watching videos about wheels. Because wheels. So I ordered an MSX (1600Wh 84v) from Intelligent Walking Store in the beginning of November. It shipped out within the advertised 7 days and arrived a little over 2 months later. That's what happens when you order prior to Singles Day! I had no problem waiting though and I knew it would arrive eventually and if not... well that would be it's own process. A little about me first. I'm 45, born in Toronto, Canada. My parents are from Spain and I lived in Spain från 1987 to 1991 and from 1991 to 1993 I started the process of moving to Sweden. I am quite an anxious person. Obsessive, perfectionist, I need to be in control of everything and I have a tendency to get offended or feel shame if something doesn't work the way I want. So for instance if I listen to headphones and they don't sound the way I want I will instantly feel shame and less worth. However I am aware of this. The what and the why so I try to work around it or use it to my advantage. I work as an IT Manager for Servicedesk amongst other things. I have also recently decided to quit so that I can take a year off and think about my life and what I want to do. I am also happily married and my wife and I have been together for 15 years. Together we mountainbike, exercise, do Zumba, calisthenics and just hang out and enjoy life. We have cheap basic electric scooters, 4 electric longboards (Ownboard and Koowheel), a Onewheel, a Ninebot One E+ and now... an Msuper X. So I unboxed it, took some photos and video, turned it on and stood on it in the livingroom hallway. It growls. Instant anxiety. A bit of research later. Normal. Okay phew. Not defective. It's pulling a bit of power when idle to keep in balance. Compared it ot my Ninebot One E+. Does it do the same? No, not really. Okay it's fine. Apples and oranges. So I look out the window, no snow, some ice, +1 degrees. Start writing on the forum. My wife is in Miami for a week. I have work tomorrow. Should I ride it? Will I damage it on the snow/ice? Life is too short. Let's go! I put on layers upon layers of warm clothes, get my flashlight, bell, helmet, and so on and off I go. Almost died carrying it 2 flights downstairs. Okay I will have to work on my technique there. Just pretend it's an awkward kettlebell. I love the pedals. The cushions are the new kind but they still cut into my calves. Let them cut. The wheel feels unresponsive. I immediately start thinking of people posting about other wheels, KS16 and min dreading, MCM5 and quick responsen. I make comparisons in my mind with my One E+. Again... apples and oranges. So I ride with the tilt back at 18km/h and reach a top speed of 23,2km/h and I try to turn at around 20km/h and. Nothing. It doesn't turn. I start thinking of the Z10. Okay I need to lean. I try again, lean... it's a new feeling. I almost fall but the pedals dihedral save me. I hit a bump and remember the feeling of almost flying off my E+. The pedals save me. I try to carve... a pathetic slow carve. Mixed feelings. I think back to ny E+. When did I get good? At around 500km. When did I get good at my OneWheel. At around 500km. So... let's not make too many assumptions 10km in. 16km ride completed. Damn it was cold. I need to do something about my boots. And gloves. Day 2. Get home from work. Go for the same ride. Better turning, better speed. I wobble the wheel around me between my legs to see how much play I have side to side. I try to think about what is required of me to not have my calves touch the body of the wheel. Then I just ride. I ride to feel free. 16 km ride completed. Charge the wheel. Take screenshots of battery usage and distance driven. A bit less than 1km per 1% of battery. Reasonable considering the cold. Day 3. Saturday. Wake up and drink coffee. Check the charger. Green. Check the wheel. All charged up. Read this forum. Watch some clips. I could be out riding. Time to ride. After around 5km I raise the speed limiter. I change riding mode to soft. I look at the battery. Under 90%. Hmm.... ah well the whole world doesn't have to be linear for me not to feel anxiety. I keep riding, hit some ice, no probs, some snow, no probs. I take a break and an elderly couple stop and ask me about the wheel. I tell them that it's the best thing i've done in my life. I keep riding. The same 35km ride I have done a few times in the summer with my wife and our longboards. The wheel tilts me ever so gently at 28km/h. I hit a top speed of 29,2km/h. Stop and check the battery. It's all good. I think a bit about how hard the tire is. For my weight I could lower the pressure a bit more. I keep riding and the last 8km my feet are getting uncomfortably cold. I ride a few extra km when I get home. Total distance 36km. Battery left 55%. 55+36 = 91. Started at 100. But 100 probably was more like 97. Is this good? Is this what I wanted? It's a bit big and hard to steer. Let's not make too many conclusions i've only done like 66km on this thing. How cold is it? How much does this cold degrade my battery on my boards, OneWheel, One E+? Around one third. What's the battery temperature? 22 degrees. Okay we're good. Let's charge the wheel and chill. Day 3. Later that evening. After spending a few hours reading about electric unicycles. Checking prices on Aliexpress. The MCM5 is still looking tempting. Getting cheaper and cheaper. My Ninebot One E+ can easily do 28km/h. And climb hills. Do I really need a faster version of it? Have I even tried hills with the MSX? Trails? Well it's winter now. We'll see later on. The wheel is fully charged now a few hours later. I do some research on quick chargers. I will eventually need one. Oh yeah deflate the tire a bit! Done. Okay let's ride! So I go for the same ride that I went on day 1 and day 2. I can carve now, I can turn now. I ride over bumps to see what it feels like. Fluffy. But I bounce a bit much still. Lucky those dihedral pedals keep me locked in! I push the speed and ride the tilt back. When I get close to home I ride on a field of frozen grass and dirt. Bounce around all over the place. Go home. Check the battery. Check the mileage. Take screenshots for reference. 16.3km. 77% battery left. 77+16. 89. Started at 100. But the voltage wasn't showing 84v. So I didn't charge it for hours while green. In other words it wasn't "real 100". It's fine. IT'S FINE! Day 4. Wake up. Coffee.. Watch youtube clips about electric unicycles. Read the forum. Think about going for a ride. My wife came back from Miami. She fell asleep on the couch. Check the weather. +1 degrees. It'll be light out for another couple of hours. Meeting a friend at 5 and it's 1 now. Maybe I could go for a ride? Just going to watch NonstopNeals clip regarding the MSX. What's this note I see in the description? He didn't have it on a high power mode? A high power mode? What high power mode? I start thinking about the responsiveness of the wheel. Is it a bad thing? It shouldn't be. I don't mind throwing my weight around. It will feel more interactive to me. Yes I have small feet. I'll manage. Should I lower the angle? I guess a few of you guys will recognise some of the though patterns here haha. Anyway loving it so far! I will just continue to ride it as it is now and put 500km on it!
  4. Hello! Im not sure how many of the people who bought the tilted sidepads are members of this forum, but could those of you who are give me some feedback on them? Whats good, whats bad. Photos or video to show them in action, after wear.. etc. - Mathias/ EUCGUY photo by Steve jo
  5. So... I've put 200 km on my V8, (my first wheel) unlocked it to 30 km/h, and and am ready for an upgrade. It'll probably have to wait a bit, but I've been doing some research in preparation and would love some feedback! In terms of my requirements: Speed: Ridiculous speeds are not what I'm after; a 35 km/h cruising speed is fine, but I reckon I'd like to aim for a 50-ish km/h max. speed for overtaking purposes and to have an ample safety margin in terms of overleaning, accidentally hitting bumps at speed, etc. TORQUE: The main decisive factor. I live in a very hilly area, and although the V8's 30 km/h cruising speed is fine on flatter roads, and I'm impressed how well it does going up steep hills, that's not what it's made for and it does so at a sluggish pace. Aside from being able to maintain cruising speed even up hills and having a wheel that I won't melt in 6 months on this type of terrain, TORQUE is a must for in case I need to accelerate, for any reason, half way up a hill, etc. Battery/range: In the long term, I reckon I'll be doing a lot of mixed riding, from urban use to countryside, offroad, etc., so I'm after something with a decent range for touring too, and with the battery power to match the torque, needless to say (although those go hand in hand in wheel design anyway) So, my main candidates are: IM V10: Was originally on the list, and is definitely a good wheel from all I've read (and seen), but not sure it ticks all the boxes. KS18XL: Ticks the speed and range boxes, and from what I've seen, seems to be a very well balanced wheel (comfort, pedals, maneuverability), but I haven't read anything about the torque. I'm not too keen on the aggressive throttling and tiltback of the KS18L, although the XL's extra battery capacity should make battery-related throttling a rare occurrence in daily riding...(Update: confirmed > based on houseofjob's review, the throttling threshold has been lowered to sub-30% battery). Love the matte look and lights too, as well as the handle. GW MS3+ (v3.7, 1600Wh): Probably my top contender. Ticks all the boxes, I'm guessing with additional torque that the 18XL probably lacks. The 18' wheel is perfect (like with the KS18XL), as having learned on the V8, which is a tall wheel, it shouldn't be too hard, and I don't think will be much of an issue for city riding. What I don't like is the pedals' inward tilt & lack of a mudguard. Don't mind the lack of kill switch, as it isn't something I'll be using often. Have also read that it's a bit top-heavy, which isn't ideal for maneuverability. GW MSX2: Ticks all the same boxes as the MS3+. Range is better, and despite battery size, am guessing that with the MOSFET TO-247, torque doesn't suffer. Probably better for offroading, but a 19" wheel might not be the best for city riding. In short, I'm after an all-rounder that I can use for anything, that's powerful, safe (margin for overlean and overcurrent when not near top speed), and comfortable for daily use, whether in the countryside or in the city. What are you guys' 2 cents? Folks who have ridden them...what am I missing, overlooking or need to take into consideration? Thanks!
  6. Watching the dramatic slope accident with the MSX that was posted earlier and the discussions on the difficulties some riders had going downhill with the Z10, I was wondering, if we could all give some input on how to go downhill correctly. I heard people describe and saw situations where they “sit into” the downhill ride “like in a chair” and it looks to me that this was the mistake the rider in the video made resulting in his dangerous fall. Sitting into a downhill ride and putting pressure on the toes, hands high up in the air! A common mistake you see a lot in ? snowboarding. I composed some still pictures and would appreciate some input from experienced riders. Have a ?:
  7. Toronto's been hit with a lot of flooding. I've been through some rough weather with the MSX and it's hold up. After gaining knowledge of how low the motherboard sits my first solution was to duct tape around the edge of that casing to lower water getting in. Has anyone done any mods on waterproofing/resisting the msx? @Marty Backeshare your wisdom please
  8. I just finished a range test run with Gotway MSuper X 1600wh. The wheel was fully charged and ended with 6% after 98.65kms. I weigh 1350lbs, carrying a 10lb backpack. The 50% of the trip was on unpaved trail. It is almost a round trip. There was a breeze against my way most of the trip. The average running speed was about 25kph and I had a couple of rest stops. I have to say that the last several kms were not fun - I had to ride slowly and in three occlusions I pushed it up the hill for short distances. The wheel started to beep continuously when the battery level dropped below 10%. So for me the practical range is about 90km.
  9. My riding weight has been between 235-240 lbs. I purchased 9B1E+ for local trips and for use with public transit. It handled my weight well and I never had any problems including using the "flimsy" trolley. I "thought" I had no need for hi -speed, but wanted a little more speed and range so I could commute to work without using Public transit. I looked at the INmotion Glide 3 (V8), but Jason thought it would only be a marginal upgrade for my size. I watched the various, umh, "discussions" on the forum regarding speed, big batteries, range, etc. I watched with amazement (but with what I thought was with no interest to me) the videos of riders going 20, 25, 30+ mph. I thought I would be perfectly happy with a non-tilt-back 16 mph. Perhaps I would dare to go 18 mph on occasion. If I had not gotten an 18 inch wheel maybe that reality would have come true. However, I purchased a KS18L and discovered what all the talk about smooth, stable riding was about. The horrible streets and sidewalks which struck fear in me on the E+ suddenly became annoying bumps at best. I found myself rushing to get the miles in to unlock the 50 kmh speed. What had happened to me? This was insane. No one should go over 16-18 mph on these machines. I have set my one alarm to 40 kmh and tilt-back at 45 mph .. but why would i have them so high? What are the new wheels doing to us? My rational mind knows the danger of a cut-off at those speeds! I was following some bikers today (while doing a 30 mile ride) and was cruising at 24 mph thinking I was at best doing 20 mph (no alarm until 25 mph). I need a watch or wrist mountable gps to track my speed.! We may argu .. discuss the pros and cons of our chosen new generation wheels, but one thing they all have in common - "They all float .. ". "Danger Will Robinson".
  10. Exciting summer as a lot of us are getting new wheels, some of us are getting the Kingsong 18L, Ninebot Z10, and for the rest of us perhaps the MSX. I wanted to create this for anyone that has had any problems with their MSX since receiving the unicycle. Please post here and share with your fellow riders! Please keep reviews CONCISE with both Positives and Negatives Include any: manufacturers defect, poor design etc
