  1. V10F has nice big pedals -- but the grip is shit if they get wet. I found this mod somewhere else and decided to give it a go. It is working great, maybe too good -- I use to be able to adjust me feet easily if I did not like my initial starting positions, mostly my left foot as I start with my right mounted. But now they dont to move. I have to now lift my foot up more to adjust. As with all changes it will take some time to acclimatize. I have tested it at the bike/skate park where I do most of my aggressive turning which places the most twist pressure between the feet and pedals, and the feet stay planted well. I used a sharp pointy thingy to poke the initial holes from underneath - this allowed to get the proper spacing by just poking in the approx middle of honey cone shape. I used a black Sharpy marker to mark the hole on the top with the pointy thingy still in because the hole disappear once it is pulled out. Then I put each screw in getting each one tight but not so much as to strip the holes but still tight as possible. There should be some of the screw thread showing on the underside. Once all the screws went in, hot glue was applied to them, hopefully preventing them from coming out when under twist pressure - this is the reason for some thread on the underside showing so the hot glue has something to grab -- the rubber is not very strong so something will be needed to hold them in. Hot glue is what I had on hand. I have no idea how the screws will hold up over time. I figure if I ride this winter the salt will rust them - time will tell! After riding for a couple days now, the grip is so so much better than before and the screws so far holding tight. I cant feel the screws there under the shoes but I sure know they are working. Without a solid stance and good grip the potential for an accident increases substantially. I hope this info can help others with this good wheel overcome this short coming.
  2. https://www.facebook.com/105016854639001/posts/139047997902553/ Custom made pedal set for V11. What do you think?
  3. 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
  4. Some of the mods I've done. Stickers to cover all the scratches ? A front bumper/stand (3mm aluminium flatbar, bend to shape, double sided tape to hold it on) Larger foot pads/plates/pedals (remove skid pads, remove top plate, 5 screws, screw on 4mm aluminium plate cut to fit and drilled for existing screw holes, add skateboard deck tape). Should make longer trips easier on my feet. Heaps of grip. Folds as original, and I've had no pedal strikes in testing so far. I used the original plates as template for the holes and slot. Used longer screws (10mm). 600km's on the wheel so far, and loving it. What have you done to yours?
  5. Hi everyone ! First of all thanks to everyone for the useful information I found so far, I have been reading a lot on this forum before to change from my V8 to the Z10. I have to say like everyone, that it' s kind of re- learning as , even after 3500 km on the V8, both the wheel anatomy and weight, balance of the Z10 itself Is very different from the V8. But I am here to launch a question to the owners of a z10 , which I couldn't find replies to on this forum or any other . After only 15/20 km on the wheel, I started to hear (and still do) a weird old wooden door "gneek" from the pedal, anytime I switch the balance to the forward or backward side. Literally like the old doors opening in horror movies when the suspense is high. So, I have never had a second of hesitation or horror feelings when traveling on my v8... and still don't. The pedals are just much smaller, but I have the sensation this whole Z10 is about to throw a red- eyed monster at me from the inside, everytime I slow down or accelerate. This obviously happens when I m next to people, who (couple of them) definitely spot me coming from the noise. It's quite annoying. Shall I put a bit of oil in the junctions, or just wait for it to eventually leave as the gear is new ? HAs anyone else experienced the same "problem " and did it go away itself or after some maintenance ? Really surprised. Also the screw from the trolley are completely loss on the side of the EUC and I have the sensation the whole thing is just falling apart when I bring it. Completely another feeling from the V8, which is just ready to use on unboxing. #notsuperhappyrightnow apart from the speed sensation which is .... phenomenal !
  6. Hi all, I recently bought a used Solowheel Xtreme. Rode it for about 20 minutes, then sparks came out of it and it stopped running. Took it apart to find that the metal snapped where one of the pedals (crank arm) is supposed to attach to the axle. The main thick cable (I assume to motor cable) also got cut since it goes through the crank arm. I am confident I can rewire the thick cable, but to do that it seems I have to get inside the motor. To get inside the motor, I would probably either have to remove the crank that is still attached to the axle, or possibly remove the material on the side of the wheel. Anyone know how to do this? Also, anyone know of a source for a new axle/crank assembly? It looks like the Solowheel Xtreme is not manufactured any longer. Attaching photos of what the damage looks like.
  7. There is a pedal mod from Hong Kong Z Team riders.
  8. Scratched up my Z10 pedals plenty and am looking to replace them and the trolley handle. Ninebot doesn't seem to be offering any official replacement parts unless I'm looking in the wrong place. Has anyone bought some off AliExpress or other sites? I'm a little sketched as I don't know if they are actually Ninebot official parts, and I'd like to trust what's under my feet at 27mph. Linked a couple below. Link Link
  9. I figured it was worth mentioning, as I backpedaled a bit from the electric deals in January, and ended up going full circle. Of course, as per usual... I wasn't satisfied with the way they were set up out of the box, and added something of my own to both my 24, and 32" deals. My 24" setup. And my 32" setup.
  10. Re-posting a SpeedFeetUK customer incident of Gotway ACM V2 / Monster pedal breakage: https://www.speedyfeet.co.uk/blogs/things-concerning-safety/gotway-acm-footplates-safety-check Gotway ACM Footplates Safety Check by Ian Sampson February 25, 2017 Failure of Gotway ACM Footplate A customer has reported the failure of one of their footplates. The style of footplate is the latest version of the ACM footplate. The model it was fitted to was the Monster 22" purchased late 2016. As always, Speedy Feet will announce any issues reported by customers to keep us all as safe as possible! SHARE this post to all those that it may apply to those it may effect (Button Below) We would recommend ALL riders check their footplates for signs of stress. (Simple scuffing and usual knocks are not part of this potential issue). Conditions of incident: Rider has done around 200 miles on the unit. Simply dropped off a standard size curb, has never done any stunts on the Monster (pretty difficult due to size of the monster!). Only ever used on road in the short distance it had traveled. Rider weight approx 100kg. THINGS TO LOOK FOR WOULD BE: 1. Stress Fractures (These would be actual cracks or signs of stretching of the metal, usually around points of stress, i.e. the hinge area). 2. Actual breakage / or splitting. Pictures of the broken footplate
  11. When I ride my wheels on one leg - it is imperative to feel confident that your foot will not slip. Even though the pedals of Mten3 have grip tape and rubber inserts - the traction is not sufficient for one-foot exercises, especially when pedals are wet, or have some dirt/sand on them. I followed the advice of Yorkshire Airwheels LTD (https://youtu.be/9YjmwrGYi8E) and made my pedals really grippy So far this mod works really well. The only small change to the above procedure is to find your 6 pedal screws first under the grip-tape - I've done it using a needle as a probe.
  12. Hey Guys, Finally got my V8 from @Jason McNeil in London UK at wheelgo.com. I can't recommend him enough. Him and his colleague Stefan have been so helpful, generous and patient before and after purchase. I was even able to learn to ride backwards on their beat-up IPS132 before getting my V8 and I'm glad I did! Thank you Jason and Stefan. I've rarely seen customer service like this. I love this wheel. The cut-off button and the trolley are indispensable. The thinness of the wheel and the nice size of the pedals also add a lot to the comfort, not to mention the safety of having a pedal height of 150mm for sharp turns. It's super responsive which is a must, especially with all these pedestrians in London. Here's my issue though. Every time I make a pronounced turn, the pedals lean forward a lot and STAY forward when I'm riding straight right after. I have to lean back for a short time to make them straight again. I'm guessing this is normal BUT I figured I could adjust the angle in the "turning and forwarding adjustment" menu in the app. It doesn't work. I've tried putting the wheel on sleep mode on its side but nothing works. Has anybody succeeded in adjusting how much forward the pedals lean when you turn? Thanks! Took me 6 hours to put the padding on the wheel haha. OCD to the rescue!
  13. Hi Guys, Do you know if there are any portable chargers for EUC batteries with a Turbine or Pedal ? There are already portable chargers for mobile phones. I think it would be a great solution in emergency cases. Here is one example for mobile phones:
  14. this is how my left pedal looks like after about 500km. Is it that the grip tape doesn't like sand?
  15. For those having to re-calibrate their nb1 due to center alignment being lost. Please post here. mileage & avg terrain would be good to know as well as any RMA repair work.
  16. Despite the mild use of force required to tap out the hinge bolt (after loosening the set screw with a hex key) in an older Ninebot One E+, the replacement of a damaged old foot plate with a new one is expected to be a simple reversal of the steps used to remove it. To avoid loosing those two spacing washers, hinge bolt and hex keyed set screw I've postponed disassembly of the pedal until the new part arrives. The only major delay I've encountered is the delivery lag time for a newly purchased pedal. I located a replacement on Amazon.com where 'NinebotUS' is the third party seller. The foot plate became noticibly cracked August 22, after a spinning EUC tumble in the street. One to three weeks of waiting is expected for my Amazon.com order to arrive with free delivery. The pedal to be replaced had for some time been awkwardly displaced outward (compared to the opposite pedal) by a centimeter or so when the pedal was in the folded up position. I'd noticed the small displacement for some time but never looked too closely at the cause by removing it for inspection (small crack?). The cracked right pedal on Aug 22 flexed slightly under my weight and was visibly cracked. The observation followed a tumble in the street which was caused when the left pedal brushed a curb in a narrow crosswalk being used simultaneously. The tumble was really low speed, almost a standstill. Avoiding a pedestrian moving in the opposite direction caused the squeeze against the curb. The EUC's turning ability seemed unusual after the tumble and the pedal scraped the ground in a turn a mile down the road. Fortunately a bus stop was nearby bringing me back the five miles I'd travelled. Since the expected delivery date from NinebotUS via the Amazon.com order is a date range (up to three weeks) from Aug29 -Sept13 the part might possibly ship all the way from China. It's not like Ninebot riders regularly need pedal replacements.... so perhaps no stateside inventory exists. Additionally the delivery period comes at the end of the summer during a holiday period (3 day weekend). The cracked pedal is from a bot with several thousand miles of use on the original part plus untold numbers of minor tumbles.
