    Waterlogged alarm beeper

    I rode for about an hour in very heavy rain yesterday. The MSuper V2 performed excellently in the rain, as usual. However, now the alarm beeper has a problem. It tries to make a sound, but it is much quieter than normal. I don't think it's shorted out, since it does make noise when it should, just much too quiet. I'm guessing water got into it. I have never read a report of this happening, so I'm entering the first report. I am hoping it regains its normal sound after drying out. After 24 hours, however, it still has a very quiet sound. I'll post a follow-up later once I know for sure that the sound came back/did not come back.

    Cutoff, but why?

    So I was headed home afterwork and took a detour to grab a drink before I got home. Luckily from work to home is only a 10 min ride max. Why is that luckily? At night I ride in the road because it's not as unridable as the sidewalk (ironically) plus at around 11 at night, not many people are on the road. Well there was a car coming up behind me so I usually ride into the shoulder till they pass, but there was a fairly large puddle (it was raining still) I barely saw and ended up riding through. About a minute later, I got the tiltback warning (which I assume was me reaching top speed like always, yes I need a faster wheel, haha), began to slow down and recover cruising when the wheel performed an action like it was confused adjusting to normal riding then giving me a tiltback feeling very rapidly within 3-4 seconds before it cut off and I safely ran off it. I was devistated afterwards when I picked up my wheel to find it wasn't turning on. I had just replaced a tire after procrastininating for weeks so it felt like i was wheel less again. After walking about 10 minutes back to my house, I sat it next to a heater for a few minutes than thought to try charging it and lo and behold it powered up once I plugged it to the wall. Battery level was the same and everthing works like before. Weird experience. Thought it's worth sharing.
  3. Hi Everyone, first time posting, new to EUC's and new to electric rideables in general. I first started off on a huge rabbit hole into electric skateboards. That market is awash and rife with issues, but as I was getting close to selecting one, I saw a FabTrav video with the Gotway Monster in it, and I had to lift my jaw off my desk. That led me to a second rabbit hole into EUC's, which is a much smaller place by the way, and I think I've got my choice nailed. I think I will go with a Tesla. The reason being that it's the newest, and while I am not one to chase specs, the market is so new that every iteration of these vehicles seem to come with refinements to the design and technology. Getting something new really matters when only earlier in the year, you weren't getting nearly as much bang for your dollar. Here's what I need it for: Daily driver, needs to be very dependable for commuting. Rain friendly. I don't plan on riding in crazy downpours but able to handle the mild Pacific Northwest moisture and rainfall. 20-30 mile range minimum. Bonus range is just icing. I don't love that the Tesla is 40+ pounds but I can live with it because the specs are beefy compared to what you get in an electric skateboard for the same money. Here are my questions though: What do I need to know about cut-offs? Is Gotway known as unsafe and Kingsong safer safe-ish in comparison? How does Gotway's customer service fare? Do you get the support you need when things go wrong? In general, how often are you tinkering and finnicking just to get it to work? I'm not talking about making improvements, I'm talking about after-market tinkering just to preserve basic functionality. Is there a seller I should avoid? Is there a seller I should definitely use? ewheels? Thank you, and anything else you might advise for a newbie, I greatly appreciate it.

    Vicious Griptape

    So the last time it rained I felt the KS-16s pedals were a little too slippery and didn't feel that secure when wet. So even though the wheel itself seemed to have enough traction when the ground was wet, my feet didn't feel that planted making me feel a bit uncomfortable riding in the rain. I bought this griptape in order to rectify this situation but it hasn't rained again since I made the switch. I have now commuted a couple days in the rain with the new griptape and I must say it is night and day. My feet feel like they are stuck to the pedals now even when wet. I think the first mod I would perform on most EUCs is a grip tape upgrade. This is the manufacturer's website: http://viciousgrip.com/ If you guys have any questions let me know

    EUC Umbrella

    When we ride in rain, the choices are either clothing, an impractical canope or an umbrellla that tackles speeed. My thoughts are we should have an umbrella that is hinged on one side like a wing or a wind foil that always follows the wind. your thoughts?

    How weatherproof is MCM4?

    If the place where I live had a local language, we would have had about 40 different words for different kinds of rain. The ports (charging and usb) have covers, and even though mine are not really holding too well and slip off easily, that's a relatively simple fix. However I'm really worried about the power button. It does not look to be particularly weather-proof. So what's a typical experience about riding with the elements? A light drizzle? Light to medium showers? Raining dogs? The manual only mentions puddles specifically: they should be not thicker than 5cm.
