  1. Hey folks, new rider here. Got my first wheel a few days ago and finally got the courage up to go for a long ride. At first I had the wheel limited to 18mph. But after a while I I was feeling confident and decided to bump it up a bit. So I set it to 24mph mostly to stop the constant “please decelerate” warning. Everything went fine until I got towards the end of the the ride (about 30 miles). I then noticed at certain speeds (I think around 18-20) the wheel would pick up a side-to-side wobble for no apparent reason. I’d slow down and it would go away. At first it was slight (2-3 degrees) but eventually it got so bad I was afraid I was going to get thrown off. When I got home I checked the battery and it was at 35%. My tire pressure is at 37psi. The ride is set to “Learning Mode” the wheel seems to be straight with no wobble when I spin it. Could it be the lower battery? Maybe my legs getting tired? I’ve got it in the charger now and will test it again once it gets above 50%. But any insight would be appreciated. I’ve attached a few app screenshots for reference.
  2. I did a bit of prodding in the official Discord channel before deciding to post my issue here and such... Yesterday, I decided to see how far I could push my new V10F on a single charge. Unfortunately, I was quite disappointed when my answer ended up being ~24 miles. I'm at a bit of a loss for the solution, as the only thing I could come up with was that the li-ion pack may have gotten swapped out accidentally, when they were fiddling with the waterproofing issue. The ride was smooth, level, and paved for at least 90% of the trip... with the only exceptions being road crossings and a couple of bridges. I only weigh 160lb, so weight shouldn't be an issue. I keep tire pressure at roughly 36PSi, as well. Most, if not all acceleration and deceleration cycles were smooth and gradual, too. To me, 24 miles seems abnormally short, considering InMotion claims at least 50 under ideal conditions. Even derating that value by 10-20% is acceptable. Something seems quite off, when one is only able to achieve 40-50% of the stated range. Thoughts?
  3. The question: is possible to ride a EUC without self balance? Obviously I do the question because I think is possible. Someone's trying it with combustion engines like the pictures. But the electric engine is better due his capacity for spin forward and backward and high power at low rpm. Maybe the work of the auto balance system isn't too much for run it manually. But the advantages of manual riding less lifting or jumping are basically none. So it's worth to make and learn ride a not self balance EUC? My answer is yes. For the Venus racing cup! (see it in the Venus Wars movie)
  4. After having used an electric skateboard around town (mainly for transportation) for the past couple of months I realized that enough of the roads around here are a hair too crappy for said skateboard — the board can take it, but I find the ride too rough. Now I'm thinking about switching from the skateboard to a KS16S (or a onewheel+, but that's another story), but having watched a crapton of EUC youtube videos and having browsed thru that "If you fell off EUC and got injured in the last few years, how are you all doing now?" thread, I had a few questions about cutouts: 1. How common are cutouts? As in are cutouts one of those things that aren't so much a "if you have one" thing as a "when you have one" thing? 2. From what I've seen and read I get that the beefier the EUC, the lower the risk of cutouts, and the closer you hang out at the max speed of your EUC, the higher the risk of cutouts, but what are some other things that raise or lower the risk of cutouts? 3. If I'm around 175lbs (80kg) and I don't plan to go much faster than, say, a bicycle that's cruising around (that's about as fast as I care to go on the electric skateboard), are cutouts something I should worry about if I'm looking at a KS16S? And unrelated to cutouts, I have two other noob EUC questions: 1. If I'm buying in the US, is ewheels.com the way to go? Or are there other sites I should also be looking at? 2. Is carrying grocery bags in your hands while riding an EUC a bad idea, balance-wise?. What about shifting the bags around like you might do if you were walking around with heavy bags and your hands were getting tired? 3. The inmotion V8 was the EUC I was actually interested in (because in addition to the 16" wheel and extendable handle in the KS16S, the V8 also had a kill switch for lifting it) but it sounds like ewheels.com is not going to carry it anymore, and I also got the impression that ewheels was the only official distributor of the V8 in the US. Are there other legit outlets that will now carry the V8 in the US?
  5. I have had my generic electric unicycle for almost a year now. A few days ago while riding at the park I experience my first ever unexpected shutdown. Luckily I managed to prevent myself from falling, but I now don't trust the unit. The unit would not full power on for about 10 minutes. I would hit the power button, it would beep, and shutdown. I lifted the unicyle will powering it on to see if the wheel would speed up, but nothing. The battery was at around 60% power when the shutdown occurred. I would assume with was a BMS shutdown. Do any reliable vendors sell batteries without this shutdown circuit? I understand that you can do a shunt modification, but it is not something I am personally comfortable with. Thank you for any help provided.
