  1. 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?
  2. 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 !
  3. 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.
  4. There is a pedal mod from Hong Kong Z Team riders.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. 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:
  11. this is how my left pedal looks like after about 500km. Is it that the grip tape doesn't like sand?
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. @UKJ asked me where I had seen @zlymex s pedal extension photos. Well I found them in this thread @EU GUY has some toe risers that I thought were neat too. edit. Can't find his toe wedges but here are his version of pedal extensions. I believe I saw his wedges on his own sight, which must have been in a link somewhere.
  15. Our family visited NYC this weekend. Of course I took my V8 with me and had a blast. This thing is definitely perfect for city living and sightseeing. I was able to drop the family off, go find parking and get on the V8 to meet them in minutes. We walked (and ride) miles away from the car to enjoy the city and I was able to quickly ride the V8 back to the car and pick them. This thing is awesome. Don't leave home without it! It kept my 11 and almost 6 happy the whole trip. Just want to point out one thing. With lots of people on the sidewalk, it's hard not to jump curbs. Yes it's fun but at a cost. Both of my pedals are now loose. If anyone know to tighten them please let me know. I had no problems taking the V8, A5 lux razor scooter and stroller into restaurants. However, the Met Museum requires you to check it in.
  16. I'm the proud owner of a new V5F+ and I see that you can change the pedal position by using the "Pedal Horizontal Adjustment" setting in the app. I think it defaults to -2.2° My question is, what is the best setting? Is it not best to have it totally flat? Is there a best setting for speed or control? Or is it simply personal preference or comfort?
  17. Little upgrade to ACM pedals... local shop cut 4x9" 14ga stainless steel., predrilled holes, steel screws, grip tape and :)) Took for a little ride, excellent. I tend to turn by leaning the wheel, have to be more cautious now or I might cut little more around the front corners. Cost: $20 cad. Magnets don't hold now, I'll have go get some from HomeDepot and attach somehow.
  18. Thought about how to improve the look of scratched pedals on my Inmotion V5F+ and friend suggested I could try with some vinyl wrap. Here are some photos before and after: Think it's not bad for a first try It might even serve as protection because the wrap is quite thick.
  19. I am quite worried. My ACM has 21km on the clock and the rubber grips on the pedals are already showing sign of wear! In comparison I have been riding my Ninebot for around 9 months and 1100 miles with NO wear to the rubber grip. Once these grips wear too much there are bound to be accidents with people's feet slipping off the pedals. @Jane Mo @Linnea Lin Gotway are Gotway aware of this issue and working on a replacement please? I have linked a photo of my right pedal. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1mrwOQYqr4gRWxndFNyU1NzVkE/view?usp=sharing
  20. Hello everyone, I wanted to share with you my little mod because it was this forum that inspired me to go and try to better my unicycle. So since my pedals wouldn't stay up I tried at first to tighten that little screw that made them stiffer but it only worked on one and just for a short time. So I glued some magnets on and it works like a charm now Only thing I am afraid of is how well does the glue hold them since it is just ordinary one-second glue.
  21. I've recently customised my Ninebot One E+ pedals by replacing the screws with MTB pedal pins to give that extra bit of security in the wet. Far less effort than messing around with installing grip tape and far easier to clean than grip tape when the pedals get dirty. There's plenty of clearance when folding the pedals up, so the pins do not get in the way at all. Grip is noticeably better than before.

    Pedal height

    Is it possible to adjust the height of the pedals on the IPS Lhotz? They are quite low and tend to hit the ground on sharper turns.
