  2. Selling a used Rockwheel 14 for parts or repair. Bought it recently and turned out it didn't work. Opened it up and looks like the control board was fried. Also the battery is dead. Asking $100 net. Buyer pays actual shipping from Chicago, IL. Feel free to ask any questions. Thanks.
  3. UPDATE 23 11 2018 Black Friday special I'm using the same page and links for previous 1111 special event, prices doesnt change a lot +/- 20$/20euros The biggest day of promotions and flash sales in China, the 11-11, will of course bring many offers on import sites such as Aliexpress, Gearbest, and many others. Coupons are vouchers or discount codes on products. To obtain them, simply create an account on which the coupons will be registered for the corresponding purchase. Either they are generalized to the site (for example 10% reduc on the whole site), or they are specific to a product. At Aliexpress it will for example simply add the object to the basket and wait for the date 11-11 to get the price when you order. At Gearbest, a "deposit" system whose amount can be multiplied by three and thus give a very interesting final price. Deliveries in 5 days are expected. If you need a specific product (other brands, or drones, phones, electronics, sports camera), you can contact me in private message. As an affiliate, I have access to all promotions, coupons / discount codes, flash sales dates & times, and more, from the entire catalog of following sellers and resellers: Gearbest- Aliexpress-GeekBuying-TomTop-EBay-BangGood-DHGate-LightintheBox-JoyBuy as well as an Alibaba YoyBuy agent. My site gathering all the brands in promos is soon ready (november 5), but I will post all the promos until November 14th. Some sellers have not yet given discounts (On Aliexpress, but you can add the product to the cart while waiting for the discount, there is a small yellow star) The prices given may vary, either because of the price of the dollar or because the seller simply changes the price. There are also errors, coupons that are not yet activated on the seller side (example segway ES2) The peak of the promos is of course 11-11. Of course, it is necessary to disable Adblock for two reasons, my cookie identifier for my%;) but also for the promotional offer to appear well. (adblock blocks advertising images and promotional offers are often in an image with a link and a cookie) Prices are already in promotions, but not all, it will come back every day to see the new prices, the expected flash sales every 4h at Gearbest, for example.

  4. Good day to all! Since recently, I became a lucky owner of Rockwheel GT-16. This wheel is a dream for quick ride and all is fine. But after I had to carry the wheel on myself hoping for the last blinking led i found that the battery indicators must be improved. In stock these 10 led indicators that can't objectively give you battery level information. On my previous wheel Firewheel indicator showed level and percentage of battery remain. So i decided to do same small upgrade of indication on my new Rock. Long thought and tried where to place it. But last moment i decided to keep original design and install new indicator in place of one of the stock indicators. I had to cut the body inside, replace the dark plexiglas with a transparent one, shorten the standard display board. Here is my result. Everything took about 2-3 hours + about 3-4 $ for the indicator. I bought it from Ali. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/12V24V36V48V60V72V84V/32845700146.html I will be glad to hear your stories. Who changed something in wheels?
  5. So I bought a second hand GT16 for about 900€, it had 74 km on the clock and no real dents or scrapes. Given a new one in EU would cost close to twice that amount I took a chance, knowing full well that my frugal side could come bite me in the rear if I were unlucky. I got it on eBay from a seller with 60-ish positive comments and no negatives. I got it pretty fast, about a week from payment to delivery, and unpacked it with some trepidation and a suspicious mind. The positives were: It had no real dents and scratches except for on the pedals. It started OK, and balanced perfectly The app connected without fail, and the meter matched the pictures on eBay. It came with a trolley. The negatives on the other hand: The trolley was partly broken, but fixable. The LEDs on the sides were not connected, and there is not even a cord to connect them to unless that is stuck in the controller compartment. The mudflap is just as useless as people say, I'll have to look into what can be done about that. One of the plastic dampers for the pedals were missing, I fixed it with a skateboard riser. The same pedal were loose, meaning would not stay up when risen agains the shell. The shell sat somewhat loose on the wheel, it seems the screws connecting the shell to the wheel were not tight enough. Some of that is the breaks of the game when you buy second hand, but a few points were a bit worrying. Standing with my weight on one of the pedals the first time made the tire "screech" against the shell. The dreaded "cracked axle" ghost raised its head grinning my way. But as it turned out, the reason were fourfold: One - the air valve stuck out a bit too much, two - the screws to the shell needed tightening, three - the shell is not as rigid as it should be, and four - the tolerances are too small. The last aspect is my main negative feeling about the wheel, it could well have a quarter-inch more space around the tire on all sides, where the tire meets the shell. That would make the mudflap immensely more useful, would eliminate the risk of the valve or the sides of the tire rubbing against the shell, and maybe even allow a 2.5" tire upgrade... Also, the screws connecting the shell to the pedals, which AFAIK are the only twelve screws that hold the shell to the wheel, doesn't even have washers. Basically the screw sits directly on the shell, which seem outright stupid. A metal backing, washer or a plate, would spread the forces over a bigger area, making the connection stronger. Four of those are the bottom screws that sits below the pedals, and there is no form of metal backing there either. Sure the forces push the pedal towards the shell, but there are side-forces too. I fixed the trolley with loctite, a cable tie and some really strong weave-tape. I also added chrome strips, to avoid my clumsy self killing the beauty of the wheel. The loose pedal turned out to be a combination of the tightening screw being loose enough that the pedal axle had moved around. So when the previous owner tightened it, the flat part where the adjustment screw should grip had slipped around. Taking it apart, and putting it together correctly solved the problem beautifully. I added skateboard gripping tape to the pedals, the really rough kind. You can't see it on the pic, but there is some silver tape on the shell under the pedal to avoid imprinting the grip tape on the shell. Will get rubber stickers or something to replace it with. Now to learn to actually ride the darn thing... I now realise my Inmotion V3 have given me some really, really bad habits. The first half hour, in the middle of the night, were like going to the bloody gym! Today, the second day, I actually got on unassisted for the first time and rode my first ten meters before a controlled stop. Good exchange for 45min of trials, still exhausting though. There's still a lot of familiarisation to do, and a lot of twin wheel stupidities to unlearn, but I see the light at the end of the tunnel. With this tempo I will be zipping around in no time The bad habits to unlearn are: almost no leaning of the wheel before getting on; getting on first, then start rolling; going really, really slow – plus the lower center of gravity on that wheel with lower pedals and 14" wheels. I look forward to getting used to a "true" unicycle. I'll report more as things progress...
  6. Hey, Does anyone know where I could get a replacement battery for the GR16? I bought one used and it only charges half way. Also a more powerful battery wouldn't hurt I guess. I saw one guy that retrofitted one of these LiPo batteries, but I´m not sure which one to get. Best Regards K
  7. Hi Guys, I need your help deciding on a wheel. I am from Australia and I have been researching this for quite sometime now. I can't seem to make a decision. Gotway seems to have the best capacity in the market but the worst quality control. With all the reported incidents on youtube; I do want to get the best, sturdiest, off-roading, long rage, highest wh out there but I dont want to die. Now I have seen many people on youtube crashing with Gotways without even reaching half its speed limit... ACM 2 giving up at 15mph after hitting a minute bump on the road. I sense a lot of frustration in many videos with gotways (ACM 2 with a wrong footplace installed). I need someone to give me an honest opinion on what is the best and safest out there for what I want bearing in mind that I dont plan on going any faster than 45 km/h - 96 kg weight
  8. small Franco-American information sharing my future wheel
  9. Curious to see the favorite tire size preference for the favorite 16" EUC category....
  10. So the "double redundancy" claimed on the new Ninebot One Z marketing points also exists on the current Gotway Tesla and GT16 (reportedly 4x redundancy), as shown below:
  11. I just hit some stairs with the original trolley, and the solder joints gave away and ripped part of the metal too ^^ Anyone have a suggestion for a good, solid, and non flimsy trolley ?
  12. Hi, everyone, Rockwheel has been created for the fifth year, and it is honored that it has not yet closed, after all it is not a profitable industry, in 2012 I had the first Solowheel wheelbarrow after the start of 2013, I gave up The original business, all devoted to the start of the operation of Rockwheel, because I love, my first wheelbarrow is gear motor drive, because I like it to accelerate the sound of metal roar, so I named Rockwheel. Natural air-cooled system, we tested 30 minutes of continuous climbing, the controller temperature of 58 degrees Celsius,
  13. Hi everyboy I know how your EUC rided so quickly ,so stable and long time to voyage.But the most important thing is safe. The new App give us much more convenient now. It not suitable for RW BUT GW,KS ect. The Connection with your smartphone ist much better and stable. Additionally the app works really nice with a pebble watch. If you have a dashboard on your wrist in your hand while driving that will more convenient. Android APP RockWheel-2017-4-12.apk iOS APP https://appsto.re/at/JIkO_.i
  14. Would love it if anybody could give me a clue on some things to check on my rockwheel, I pressed power button and got nothing, so I figured I just need to charge it. When I plug in the charger, the indicator light on charger stays green. I unplugged the charger and pressed power button, and I have a fading beep sound and charge indicator drops to empty almost immediately. Any ideas, I left it on charger for 30 minutes, light remained green on charger the whole time and when unplugging and then pressing power...same thing. Battery seems to not have charged more than the beeping and light that immediately goes off. By the way, the battery was great before and still was holding full charge.

  16. So, as I wait for my GT16 to arrive (ETA next week), ..... Dug up an interesting tidbit from a Korean NAVER Blog GT16 Review [source] [google-translated] about the GT16 having app-less balancing / leveling capability: Turn off GT16 Turn on and hold GT16 until the last prolonged beep, then let go (sequence will be 4 short, consecutive beeps, then 1 long prolonged beep) Level the wheel Press the power button. Wheel will now be balanced. Apparently the previous Rockwheel TB14 had the same function.
  17. Hello, might be question hard to answer, but which euc is the fastest right now on the market? Top 5? thanks for your reply.
  18. Hello I "upgraded" from the Airwheel X3 to the Rockwell GR16. The bump up in speed and acceleration is really awesome. However, I have noticed of late that the gyro calibration on my Rockwheel is probably a little off. Let me try and explain what I mean. I usually ride with the battery/LED indicator on my left. Nowadays, when I switch over and ride with the battery/LED indicator on the right, I feel that the pedal is a little off and not completely level. With the LED on my left, I feel that I need to lean forward less to move forward when compared with the LED on my right. If the calibration is accurate, there should not be any difference. How do I check if the calibration on my Rockwheel and make the necessary correction/adjustment (if any)?
  19. Hello, I am so excited about these! I have never seen one in my life b4 a few days abo I spent the next 9hrs researching these and I want one! I live in up state NY near the capital which is Albany I have no Idea where I can find a place where I could go physically buy one of these I Tryed googling shops or rental in NYC because I have to go there this weekend and I found nothing but dead ends. I also have a small 2 day vacation to niagra falls Canada but have yet to find anything except that they might have them at best buys in Canada. I almost bought one from altybaba.com but it concerned me how cheap it was and the method of payment that they wanted money order or western union didn't seem legit! Where are some dealers in the U.S.? Or even near the Canadian border? Can I rent one anywhere in the northeast u.s.? Im about 230 lbs so I probably need a decently powerful one way would b suggested? Seems like the rock wheel is the strongest and fastest from wat I have read and watched on YouTube is that true? Would you suggest buying a cheapo to learn on? Would it run ok w me on it even tho I'm 230lbs? Can anyone hook me up with any legit dealers of either cheaper ones that r still ok to learn ok or rock wheel, or gotway?
  20. The wheel caught on the molding and cracked body by the foot stands. Is there anywhere to order body or any suggestions?/ please give me some type of hope
  21. New year ride coming up, Sunday, January 3rd, 2016. Bring out your Electric unicycles. Meetup location will be posted soon. Details to be announced. Please provide places to visit for our ride. Examples can be Coit tower, Lombard street, fisherman's wharf, fort mason, palace of fine arts, etc.
  22. Hello everyone! I've been looking for a better EUC for while now. First I purchased an entry-level EU, similar to TG wheel (14"), since it was light, temperature range -10 to +40 C and low cost to learn. But I like to drive some trails too, so like to get more power and bigger wheel. My first thought was to get a 9bot1 but after I tried C+ I was dissapointed: pedals incline to driving direction ("soft" feel), which didn't feel nice, I liked to have a firm (firmer at least) feel. I also didn't like the tilt-back, especially when it occurred already on relatively low speed. I have no idea how big changes can be made via Ninedroid or how big the difference is between C+, E and E+? The I seriously considered to purchase IPS XIMA Lhotz (191) and e-wheelshop.nl came up - have anyone any experience about them? It there a risk to get one older version? In that case, will it still run 30 km/h? What is the actual range of this wheel? Which parameters can be varied through the app (and which app)? Is it really waterproof, like 9bot? Just keen to that 2,5 inch tyre, could be a beast on trail... Now I have Rockwheel GR16 on test and I see many pluses, but perhaps still more minuses on it: + really light, as TG + range about 3x vs. TG - almost OK, but there are many other comparable choices too + open casing makes it easy to remove snow + incredible torque, so easy to start again after landing... even from a small hole - very unstable due to lack of angular momentum/geared stucture (?) - revs instantaneously when even slightly airborne (due to the great torque) - difficult to balance when compared to TG 14" or 9bot - terrible clearance to to the gear, several degrees, makes it difficult to make tight turns - bad noise under bigger loads, especially today when driving in -30 Celsius uphill Any of these familiar to others who tested RW? So what wheel should I choose, any recommendations? And please do not suggest any 18", since those are just too high and big for me, I don't want the wheel reach above my elbow. Thanks for reading through, please give me a clue - Tuija
  23. I wonder that no one seems to have a gearless rockwheel GP14 ? I think it's one of the best 14'' with more than 35kph top speed.
  24. So the time has come for the world to finally receive a proper review of the Rockwheel GT14, and it really does deserve a review! First of all: This is currently NOT the wheel for someone who wants to unpack their new wheel and ride without any worries, however, it has a great value-for-money (may be the best) for those who know their way around a screwdriver and a solder iron First impression of product&company: So I had not owned a Rockwheel, nor had I tried it before this one. Because of the problems with the geared versions, I was skeptical towards the brand, but the GT14 was supposed to be the debut to elbow its way into the international market. It was ordered straight from the factory, and Sunny was my contact person. It took 2,5 months from I paid it until I got it, so I was pretty angry in the end. The reason it took so long, was because of delivery delay from the factory in the first place, followed by an error made by the forwarding company. On top of this, follow-up was poor because Sunny had quit her job at Rockwheel and were sporadically following up old customers. Anyways, the wheel arrived yesterday in good condition. When unpacking the GT14, it strikes me that it is much more attractive looking in real life than it is in the pictures. It is kind of a stealth look with that matte, wide, carbon fiber painted shell. I own a Ninebot One, and while that is a beautiful wheel, I never felt entirely comfortable with the looks of it. The MCM4 looks like a funny toilet seat with LEDs to me. This looks more rough, more towards my taste. With the wheel came a fan-less charger. It is only rated 2 amps, so it is not as quick as the more noisy 5A chargers. The only other thing inside the box was a service record leaflet, no manual, so you have to figure out the rest by yourself. A high quality CST tire is fitted, and the foot rests are wider than usual, making it more comfortable to ride @ high speed. There were also magnets to lock the foot rests in place (thank god). One pedal was not aligned properly, so I had to take the shell off and fix this. Otherwise the unicycle was properly bolted together, and there was used silicone instead of glue on all connections which is a good thing. Modification that MUST be done before even thinking about riding this unicycle: First ride with the GT14 was with mixed feelings. I had been reading about people being face planted on this model, but I thought it might had been solved with the latest motherboard revision. WRONG! After I rode up a steep hill, I got face planted @ moderate speed, and the wheel was dead afterwards. I immediately suspected the BMS, and I was right...Rockwheel engineers made one big mistake with this wheel, and that was using a cheap, under-rated BMS for this unicycle. The BMS board has 3 parallell under-voltage protection MOSFETs installed, but they just could not carry enough current to feed the motherboard/motor. Because of this, these components died, and 2 diodes in parallell with these also blew: Make sure you do the shunting mod to this BMS before you ride. This will prevent the wheel from shutting down, and you getting face planted! I recommend running 2 or 3 wires when shunting, just to make sure you are getting enough current to the motor, better safe than sorry. Ride quality: At first I though the GT14 performed horribly. It was stuttering at low speed, the pedals were not aligned horizontally, and it was very hard to turn around tight bends at low speed. It could simply not be compared at all to the NB1. This was, however, until I got it set up properly. I tried the Rockwheel app which crashed every time, so I downloaded the Gotway app which connected to the wheel just fine. After an alignment calibration, the wheel felt much better instantly. I still did not like the extremely hard ride quality, so I changed the ride mode to "soft". Now the wheel was actually performing very good. It is still not as refined and smooth like the NB1 by far, but it is just a different beast, a little more rough around the edges. The tall body means that you will press it between your legs further up, which in turn gives you more control over acceleration and braking than lower body wheels. Turning capabilities with this wheel at low speeds are not good. The pedals are spaced wide and low, which means that tight turns will make the pedals scrape against the ground. After a little practice, I actually learned to turn the wheel just fine, one just need a little different method. I think that Rockwheels intention was to make this a high speed commuter, and that is just what it is. The wide and low pedals make riding at high speed more stable, so it is not all negative. Overall I am very satisfied after setting up the wheel properly. Speed, power and battery life: The GT14 is a beast. The acceleration in this wheel is extreme, making the NB1 E+ feel like syrup in comparison. Uphill, the motor is also considerably stronger than the one in my NB1 E+. It has got the ability to run very fast, and although I have not tried yet, I have no doubts it can reach more than 35km/h on a flat surface. The battery pack in mine is 355WH with LG cells. The milage is impressive. I have not tested it long enough yet, but the milage seems to be around 50% better than in my NB1 E+. There is also additional space inside the housing to fit one more 32 cell battery pack, so you can upgrade this to more than 700wh capacity. The battery is placed horizontally over the main board. This might be a smart solution, as heat from the electronics cavity may help to keep the battery tempered during running in cold weather. Safety: There is no doubt that there are safer wheels out there than this one. This is not an euc for beginners, but for the professional rider. It has a slight tiltback, and audible alarms, but it does not seem to have any hard overspeed tiltbacks at all. However, with the BMS shunt mod, you should be safe as long as you run sensible. I got my heart pumping yesterday when hitting a pothole at very high speed past critical speeding alarm. The wheel got tilted forward, so much I almost lost balance and fell off. Instead of turning off, the control board provided the motor with maximum current, and luckily I caught balance again Bottom line: As mentioned earlier, this wheel is not for the beginner who wants to unpack their wheel and ride. If you know how to handle a solder iron and want to do the BMS shunt mod, this wheel is probably the best deal currently available, price vs. specs/features. It would fit best for the serious commuter, rather than those looking to play, jump and do tricks with their EUC. At 150-180USD cheaper than MCM4, you even get 15wh more battery capacity. The carrying handle is a bit oddly shaped, so carrying it far is not comfortable. Weighed in at 11.6kg, it is not very heavy regarding the battery and motor size. Bottom line, I think it deserves a lot more attention than it has got. Rockwheel got very close on this one, but still so far away As long as you do the BMS shunt and alignment/settings tweak, it is a great wheel for the price in my opinion
