  1. Hi guys, I ordered a set of the Z Team HK Pedals on 03.27.2019 and they arrived 04.07.2019. The communication with the seller was great, I ordered via PayPal, got a tracking number and I think it was UPS that delivered them. I've been riding on them for several weeks now to get a full review going with pros / cons, I also needed to try them with different shoes because the angled ends of the pedals changed what I would want to wear while riding it. For anyone wondering: I paid for these pedals with my own money, I'm not affiliated with Z Team HK, and I'm a US size 10 in shoes! First impressions, straight out of the box the pedals are nice and thick stainless steel with a grippy matte finish. Included are two strong magnets to swap out the stock magnets, allen wrench, extended pedal padding, and screws (Loctite for the screws not included). When I ordered it there were no instructions / videos online on how to put everything together but I figured it out pretty easily from pictures, since then they've put up an instructional video on Facebook. The Z Team HK guys decided to laser engrave their logo on the top of the pedal. As of right now they don't offer any other styles / colors. If you won't like how it looks you can always stick sandpaper on top of it. I sprayed mine with Truck Bed Liner then applied the screws in with blue Loctite. After installing them I couldn't get my new pedals to close properly, it looks like the extended ends hit against the Lower Protective Pads. A couple of quick passes with an Exacto knife created an opening for them and the pedals now fit perfectly. And if you guys haven't figured it out by now, my Z10 is a daily commuter that's been bashed a few times so I wasn't too worried about the overall aesthetics of things. However, if you want to keep your Z10 looking nice, be aware the Lower Protective Pads will interfere with the pedals. I spoke with Z Team HK and they are aware this was an issue but I couldn't find mentions of it anywhere on their pages. Converse, Vans, Skate Shoe Ride Review: This part I'm going to review the pedals when using shoes with flat outsoles that were mostly flexible. The pedal pins really lock the shoe in place horizontally, there is no slipping effect when carving or hard turning which was really confidence inspiring and I definitely was turning at higher speeds I would normally do. The extended pedals create a concave effect, I played with my foot positioning a few times and decided to keep them dead center on the pedals. This helped lock my foot in place and the extended pedals also help eliminate some foot fatigue during the longer rides because my foot was no longer hanging off the front or back ends. Now for the CONS: installing these pedals required you the remove the rubber bits that came on the stock pedal and I did not realize how much road cushioning those little bits provided (I think I understand why people like the Inmotion V10F Pedals now haha). Going over speed bumps and some large cracks made me almost want to launch off of the pedals, so even though these things added horizontal grip via the pins/screws some of the stock pedal's vertical "grip" was lost. With my foot perfectly centered I actually found it kind of harder to slip my feet around the pedals to change positions, you now have to lift off a bit to move your foot. I didn't realize how much I would reposition my feet on a ride until I was unable to do it normally. So although my foot can be kept at a comfortable position for a longer period of time, my position options were now more limited. Moto, Boot, Hard Outsole Shoe Ride Review: Now I'm moving onto shoes with a mid-ankle, relatively flat outsole, but are more rigid / not flexible mainly due to additional protection like CE Certification. I like wearing these shoes because they provide more of a cushion without sacrificing stability on the stock pedals. Also, these are well padded around the ankles and are my go-to when I'm trying something adventurous like going uphill offroad and such. With the new pedals installed there wasn't much of an impact on the cushioning like I had felt with the skate shoes. The additional horizontal grip is still there as well. However, these shoes are bulkier than my other shoes and when positioned dead center on the pedal for an extended amount of time my foot got tired more quickly. I tried to reposition my feet because on the stock pedal I usually have my feet poking out the front more with these kind of shoes, but with the pedal extensions they got in the way and made me a bit more unbalanced. Trying to move my feet further back had me hit the back extender, I couldn't find an ideal foot position after several rides. These shoes were not the best or most comfortable on the stock pedal, and with the extended pedal the effects are compounded. Final Thoughts: The pedals provided cornering benefits on flat surfaces using skate shoes. You won't fear slipping off your pedals from leaning too hard on a turn, and we all know how hard turning on the Z10 can be. The extended bit allowed me to go a bit further before having to reposition my foot due to fatigue. I rode for about 3 weeks now and I would be happier if there was an extended pedal version that was flat at the ends instead of angled. I think that angled bit sacrifices foot position variety for handling gain. The added harshness of the ride could be offset with some soft/cushioned deck tape I think but will need more experimenting to find out. If you want that added grip feel the screws provide you can try buying Mountain Bike Pedal Screws and using those in place of the stock screws, you'll get a nice balance of grip / comfort and not lose any of the foot positions. I can see some people REALLY liking these pedals though for that extra grip alone. For anyone wondering if the pins would damage the bottom of your shoes, they usually don't. People have been riding mountain bikes with pins on pedals for a while now and they're perfectly fine. I only noticed a few semi-permanent indentations on my Alpinestars moto shoe, but that shoe has an exceptionally soft outsole compared to everything else I own.
  2. 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?

  4. Anyone who recently purchased MsuperX, and especially if you are upgrading from Msuper, you notice immediately the difference in the pedal angle on the MsuperX which is much sharper. Here's the measurement of the Msuper pedal which is about 80°: In contrast, the MsuperX measurement comes out at 75°: For myself and others, the new pedal angle on the MsuperX is uncomfortable. However there are others who are OK with it and may even prefer it, YMMV. Anyhow, I decided to modify the pedals of the MsuperX so that they match the Msuper ones exactly. I give credit to @mrelwood who I think first suggested the solution described below but first. DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT RECOMMENDATION. PERFORM AT YOUR OWN RISK ! YOU CAN EASILY DAMAGE YOUR PEDALS AND MAKE THEM UNUSABLE ! The modification involves very careful removal of pedal material using metal files until the desired angle is reached. Here are the tools used : To adjust the pedals, I carefully filed in small increments the area of the pedal that comes in contact with the pillar. Then put the pedal back and measured the angle and repeated this process many times until the angle matched the desired amount. This needed to be done in very small steps because if too much material is removed, the pedal is ruined and would have the opposite problem of too large pedal angle. Here are pictures of one of the modified pedals after about 20 minutes of labor on each one: Afterwards painted the pedals and installed better grip tape (optional) Finally here's the pedal installed on the MsuperX and now measures 80° which is the same as the Msuper: So far, the modified pedals feel much more comfortable to me. Still need to test them for longer and more demanding rides to see how they perform and check if the wheel dynamics have not been negatively affected.
  5. I have ridden the InMotion V8 with the original V8 pedals for around 9000 km and with the V10 pedals for around 2000 km. This is a quick comparison of the pedals. Specs, V8 vs V10: Pedal length: 212mm vs 241mm Pedal weight: 650g vs 1100g (for both pedals) Surface: grip tape vs rubber V8: the grip tape is not very durable^1 and not very grippy when worn down, which takes only a few 100 km for me. The pedal position is somewhat more V-shaped on the new wheel, which is to me a little less comfortable, but pedals lose their shape over time anyway^2. When riding on loose ground, the pedals seem less forgiving by allowing less control against unintended sideway turns of the wheel. V10: the rubber gives reasonable and predictable grip and is much more durable. The pedal size is more comfortable for my size 10 feet. One pedal has broken apart after 2000 km. The same problem has been observed by others^3. Overall, I'd definitely prefer the comfortable V10 pedals for their size and surface durability, if they would not break . With the experience of breaking, the V10 pedals are not a viable option anymore, at least not for me. ^1 https://forum.electricunicycle.org/topic/6483-v8-pedal-durability/ ^2 https://forum.electricunicycle.org/topic/10542-v8-pedals-lost-v-shape/ https://forum.electricunicycle.org/topic/13649-v10v10f-pedals-drooping-how-to-fix/ ^3 https://forum.electricunicycle.org/topic/13223-broken-pedal/ https://forum.electricunicycle.org/topic/13649-v10v10f-pedals-drooping-how-to-fix/
  6. I had been happy Ninebot user since early 2016, with 2000 km range experience. I have decided to make step forward, and switch to the stronger wheel - I have decided for KS16 with 680wh A few pluses: - higher torque, - much longer range - valise type handle - integrated lights - better stability and nicer ride In general - very good wheel, however I have found that original KingSong pedals are really bad in terms of grip, rubber is soft and heavy, moreover spring based holding mechanism is terrible. Please see below my mod for the pedals: - skateboard grip offer much better stability even in wet conditions - magnetic locking mechanism is easy to lock and unlock by small kick in the lower part of the pedals - pedals lower parts are quite useful! - mod allows to make the unit lighter - KS16D with 680wh battery weight is now 16,42 kg - basic CAD knowledge and 3d printer allowed me to design and print needed parts, proper mounting of the plastic inserts require drilling 3.2 mm holes in the aluminium pedals and taping the holes with M4 thread. Experience in drilling required in order not to drill through the pedals 14 mm round neodymium magnets inserted in the pedals and into the white side bumpers are sufficient to hold pedals up. - 6 pcs of of 10mm and 6 pcs of 8mm long M4 screws are needed, also 24 washers to equalize uneven cast and mount the pedals (US modders can adapt to the locally available imperial system screws) - if somebody is interested in obtaining .stl files with plastic insert and side bumper (to be printed on the 3d printer) let me know. - mod is reversible - it is possible to unscrew pads and insert rubber back into the pedals. The next mod which I decided to go for is to add brigher LED red lights on the back - see results in the next pictures.
  7. 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.
  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 have a confession to make: I haven't been loving my King Song 16s as much as others seem to love theirs. My problem is occasional wobbles, which scare me enough at speed to keep my speeds unnaturally low. @Marty Backe told me it was just me and I should shut up and go away (my words, not his). A part of my problem, I believed was the general shortness of pedals; fine for size 7 Chinese feet but for western male adult feet, not so good. So I resolved, over a year ago in Spain, that when I got back to the UK I would make some pedal extensions as others have done. Well, over a year later, and one new wheel too, I've FINALLY done it. For years I have been carting around a sheet of 6.5mm aluminum diamond plate, and it was my intention to use it. Here it is, with two shoe shaped bites out of it: This stuff took forever to cut with an electric jig saw. It's aluminum on steroids. Here is one in place. I later decided to go with grip tape as the diamond pattern was actually making it slicker due to reduced contact area:
  10. Has anyone ever replaced the V10 pedals? I noticed on the website (myinmotion.com) they are only selling pedal replacement parts for the glide 2/3. They have side panel, tire, tube, covers for the V10, but no pedals?
  11. Hey guys, I'm new to this forum. I just recently got into riding an purchased my first EUC. The gotway Msuper X 1600W. I've heard about people not liking the slanted pedals. And I can see why. My feet end up falling asleep a lot. Is anyone have these same issues? And if so, is there a solution? Thanks!
  12. 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
  13. Hi there I am currently trying to learn how my KS 16s, and someone mentioned that there is a way on how to make the pedals softer and harder that making the pedals harder are easier for learning does anyone knows whet they were referring to?
  14. Here’s my DIY ‘suspension’ cushion to make the ride smoother
  15. Dear gotway guys, @Linnea Lin Gotway, @Jane Mo, I would really appreciated if you could provide new larger msuper3-like pedals. I own an ACM an a msuper3. My ACM was equiped with old pedals. I installed the new ACM pedals but I have some new foot sufferings. I notice that almost everything is much better with msuper3 pedals on msuper3. I tried to put msuper3 pedals on my ACM but I don't know why I find them not large enough on ACM while they are ok on msuper3. I'm happy with my ACM but it would be much better if I can make these foot sufferings less painful. So please, can we expect from you to provide larger msuper3 pedals ? Thank you.
  16. Look like most people prefer the msuper pedals based on what I have read on the forum, but me personally I prefer the ACM pedals, I have a pair of msuper pedals that's about 5 months old, has some scratches but all the grip is still there, if anyone wanna trade me ACM pedals for some msuper's let me know I would really appreciate it. I live in Sarasota Florida
  17. I found myself constantly adjusting my stance, scooting my feet around on the unicycle pedals, especially in wet conditions. I got some grip tape and ucame up with a great way to squeeze it in between the grooves of the pedals: a tiny bearing on the end of a metal rod. The difference was night and day; my feet feel practically stuck to the pedals (even flip flops don't shift at all!), and my control improved so dramatically that I actually started getting better range out of a charge. I figure it's because I was rocking back and forth less, so it didn't have to compensate as much to keep me upright. Also, I really like the look of the tape I chose
  18. Hey, All. Big feet here. Looking to make/get larger pedals for th KS18 you. Does anybody have any links or a how to guide? Searched the form, but not finding exactly what I need. Thanks in advance! Mc
  19. Changed to better grip on my KingSong 18 today , used 3 mm plexiglass and grip for stairs , trucks , glued the plexi with bathroom silicone Images link Safety stair grip , link It's for rainy weather and mud or if I get oil on my shoes and rain
  20. I am trying to find replacement pedals and hangers for a Gotway MCM4. I would really like to replace the pedals on an MCM3 with those L shaped hangers and the big flat bottom pedals from the MCM4. I do realize there are some mods that will need to be done like screw holes and possibly space for the hangers. Any info or opinion would be awesome. Thanx y'all. UPDATE: Just still wondering if anybody read this post I could really use the info. Thanx
  21. My biggest problem with the acm was the small pedals. I had no leverage going up hills and all my weight was in the middle of my foot. I made these as soon as i could and the difference is night and day. They are filed and sanded down on the edge and around all the screws. The screws are held in place with the threads and metal epoxy. I used 3 layers of base coat and 4 layers of black paint. Its all metal paint and as you can see it doesnt wear off much. This is after many weeks of use. I mostly ride in the woods. The grip is superb and the screws are filed down just enough so i dont feel them through the shoes and they are sharp for more grip. They are exactly my shoesize.
  22. Back in my day, guys added neon lights underneath their cars to make them look they are floating on lights. So today I am waiting for the sun to go down so I can try out my new mod. First test was using those glow-shoelaces you get at dollar or party stores. They are cheap and batteries included. I simply scotch-taped them to the bottom, and I got some dimly-lit effect under my feet. Laces started dimming after an hour, and they are not going to last for 3,tops. So I scrapped those, and recently I ordered these LED Halo lights off eBay in deep blue. My only regret was getting them in the smallest 40mm. They are meant for cars, so that means they are set for 12v. So this is how one looks like when you get it. It wasn't very bright when I connected it to my intended 9v battery idea. I prayed that the LED halo could operate at a lower voltage, and that black thing was just a resistor.
  23. Hi, I'm owning now my EUC for 6 months, a King Song 14C 800W 680Wh. I'm happy with it, but I must say that longer rides (>10km) aren't very comfortable. Depending on the road surface, after 5-10 km my feet start hurting on the outer side of my feet. I think this is caused by the angle of the KingSongs pedals. The pedals are not parallel, they incline towards the outside. See image (not mine, just ripped it from the internet): During the ride, I change the position of my feet several times to reduce the discomfort. This helps a bit, but not enough for longer rides. I tried yet with different shoes, but without luck. My question is : Am I the only one with hurting feet on a KingSong 14C ? Have some of you "modded" your EUC with improved / other pedals ?
  24. Does anyone know if all 14" pedal arms fit the same size axle and bolts? In other words are they all interchangeable?
  25. Hello wonderful forum community. I know this is a long, long shot, but I have a request and am hoping someone might be able to help me out. I'm really wanting (needing) some bigger pedals for the Gotway ACM16. I'm willing to pay a couple hundred dollars for a nice set of pedals, and was hoping that maybe someone on here is up for the challenge? I'm sure if they are good then you could sell many more sets. Please message me on here or reply to this thread if you think you would be up for the challenge. I live in the US by the way. Thanks!
