  1. My pressure pump says this is 45 PSI but I kind of doubt it. This is me standing on the wheel and for the record I am 175 lb. It feels solid with my hands but when I look at it on my phone I am a bit worried.
  2. Hi Peeps. I've been riding the Gotway Tesla for nearly 5 months and decided I want to upgrade the tyre to a wider tyre. I've heard people say they upgraded to a 2.4 or 2.5 inch road tyre but never seen anybody say what tyre and provide links to where to buy it from. I would be grateful if you could provide links im based in the UK and fancy seeing what the ride difference will be on a wider tyre. Thanks alot in advance
  3. Question for those of you who will be getting the Veteran Sherman. Which tire/tyre will you be requesting with your order?
  4. The topic of tyre swapping and alternatives comes up more frequently these days. So I cut this from another thread. It's a tiny bit messy, but a lot of questions are answered by the data. Here's what my research has pulled up. Most of us know by now that bicycle tyres/tires are specified by the total diameter of the tyre, not the rim it fits on, as per the rest of the tyre world. So for example a 14" EUC actually has a 10" rim. However things get complicated with machines like the Gotway Nikola which is a 17" wheel, not because the rim is bigger, but because the tyre on it is a
  5. How many of you enjoy trail riding instead of or in addition to street riding? Since we don't have a Video Forum I'd like to start a video thread focused on Trail Rides. If you have a YouTube video link, please reply to this topic for so we can view and talk about great experiences and some of the challenges. Let's try to keep it on topic. I would love your feedback and will most appreciate keeping this thread going with Trail riding video.
  6. I’m wondering what tires others have successfully upgraded their S18 to.
  7. This is the Michelin City Pro tire. I bought it after i ran a flat for the 2nd time, might as well try something new. Wow! what a facelift What i noticed right away was that the rubber and sidewalls where much stiffer, this makes it possible for me to ride with even lower PSI and get the same dampening, while keeping the same control as with the stock tire. So by default, i use around 30/35 psi, now i could get away with just 20 psi. 1st thought from the first few meters of rolling, "damn this is smooth" Almost no sound from the tire at all, and it felt planted solid to the g
  8. Knobby agressive Off road tire for Inmotion v11 have anyone tried it? You can change the v11 tire to another standard tire, the tire used now is the same that GW MSX use. Changing Kingsong s18 is another matter. Realising that Inmotion v11 is the best all round wheel for the sane segment of the EUC community, I wonder if you should just forget about the competitors and have 2 V11 wheels? One for aggressive off roading and one all purpose V11 ? Always buy more wheels. But realise: In 2 years your wheel is outdated anyways.... Maybe even Gotway will learn to maker proper suspension an
  9. Have anyone changed motor on Inmotion V11 ? Im forced to do it and Im not happy. In fact Im angry. My V11 sounds like shit, the bearings are producing too much friction. I took the wheel for a ride in the rain, since that day the sound is terrible. I love my V11 I use it for commuting on a daily basis, Im clumsy and not technical. I really believev Inmotion should take back bad wheels and give us new ones. This bloody project is gonna take me at least 12 hours Im told. As always Marty is very helpfull, there is a youtube video on how to do this. Also Inmotion have one and mr Wrongway ha
  10. Hey guys, I'm changing the tire in my Tesla v2, and I have gotten both the side covers of, and disconnected the batteries. But I have 2 problems. First, I don't see how I can disconnect the motor wires without taking the main board out or opening the wheel more. In the animation on the ewheels youtube account they show that you can easily disconnect them. And the second and bigger problem, is that in every video I have seen, the wheel just slides out from the shell when you have unscrewed the 6 screws on each side holding the pedal hangers on to the shell. But I don't see that happening on my
  11. So after 4k miles I finally managed to blow a little hole in my tire. This appears to maybe be something that I could patch up without taking off the wheel but I would love any suggestions. I prefer not to take this thing apart. On a side note if anyone's interested in a functional Z10 with wheel issues for a low price I would be willing to sell it as I have another wheel now. The rim is slightly dented from hitting a couple heavy bumps but the wheel is fully functional. DM me if you're interested in more details. I'm in Seattle.
  12. Hey Guys, Long story short (Does anyone know why my tires keep popping at 30psi??) I've bought 2 wheels before, I bought a inmotion v5f about 4 months ago and just recently bought an inmotion v8. My inmotion v5f tire popped after 2 weeks of having it, I knew nothing about tires so I had it at about 20 psi. (I know my bad) My inmotion v8 popped today after 2 full days of riding it at just above 30 psi. I weigh 140lbs so plus my bags I'm probs 160lbs, someone suggested 30psi would be fine. Im not riding on any off-road but I have a lot of bumpy roads around where
  13. After doing it a few times, i found a way to split it open and remove tyre and tube in about 20minutes. Here goes. NOTE! DO NOT Drop screws down in battery compartment in step 1. 1. Snap of outer skirt, start at the top with the overlying part. Remove batteries (first covers, 2 screws beneath top foam and 2 beneath plastic piece at pedal height...2 snaps and a center pin to remove plastic piece) on both sides. Mark up corresponding battery and BMS CONNECTORS (i use a permanent marker with 1,2,3 aso dots on connecting cables/connectors but it rubs of easy so tape is bet
  14. I modded my MCM5 to ride on Chao Yang 14x2.5" wide tire. The stock MCM5 is 14x2.125" wide. I am used to wider tires (mten3, Z10, Nikola). I was not comfortable with the stock MCM5 tire. @RoCan modded his MCM5 for the 2.5" wide tire. This tire mod require cutting away a portion of the front and back shell cover along with the outer edges of the wheel well. I took @RoCan advice and made sure I cut away enough material so there is ample clearance for the wide tire. The clearance I was shooting for was 3" from edge to edge. This means the last two bottom shell screw holes were cut off. I plan to u
  15. I was surprised I couldn't find a dedicated thread to inner tubes so here it is! Almost all resellers I found sell inner tubes without mentioning their brand nor the angle of their valves, so unless these resellers are dedicated to EUCs, their inner tubes may not fit. Better ask them, but first we need to know what to ask! I found that the information about inner tubes is segregated in different threads, but I couldn't find any dedicated discussion regarding the different materials used in inner tubes nor information about the valve angle nor even the most recommended brands (there are i
  16. I've a MCM5 V1 (2.125" tire) and I'm pretty happy with it. I love this wheel. Agile, fast, funny. Now I've read that Gotway is selling this wheel with 2.5" tire. I know there's a way to change the tire but I'm not so good in this kind of stuff. Moreover, I've read that if you have a MCM5 V1 (like I do, I guess) you cannot just change the tire but it's longer work. By the way, I'm thinking about selling my wheel and buy the newest one. What you guys think? Is it a good idea? What could be advantages and disadvantages moving from 2.125 to 2.5" tire... Thanks for your help
  17. EDIT: As promised I added two more tires to the comparison – 5. Chao Yang H-5167 and 6. CST E-Bike PRO. You can find the description, video, scores and final conclusion below. As some of you may know from my first post in Inmotion thread, I have recently bought my first wheel - Inmotion V5F+. After learning how to ride the wheel, I started using it for daily commute to work and going around the city. I am absolutely thrilled by the wheel, but after few hundred kilometers and some strange and unexpected behaviour I started to doubt the tire that came with it. Therefore I boug
  18. Hello there what do you think about solid tire ? For euc in particular I didn't found anyone that tried it ... I got a 14" × 2.125 tire so is small in comparison to other euc size, so maby it won't affect too much the ride and add the security that is impossible to puncture ! I don't know how would it be... Is it harder or softer than a normal tire? If anyone has some experience in this or have suggestions it's appreciated
  19. and do any of them last longer than the two years that slime says it protects for? i've had a bike mechanic say he hated working on bikes with slime.
  20. I was looking for an option for driving in the winter. Winter in Drammen, Norway is very varying. From rainy day with 5°C to -15°C snow. Some days a very icy. I have been looking for studded tires. But to no avail. The closest thing I found was studs that could be screwed into the tyre. But that needed at least 6,2 mm rubber thickness. The tires I found was between 5,5-6 mm. I didn't want to chance it. One bump and the stud would puncture the tyre/tube. In the end I ended of with the following solution. I screwed in 196 screws through the tyre from the inside out. Then I added two l
  21. So, I felt like the stock MSX tire is fine for the street, but pretty weak on any kind of trail. I wanted to try out a dual sport tire which could work on the trails and the road. I decided to try out the Shinko 244. There are other options out there that people have tried, but I really liked the look of this one. The problem is that tire lists the width at 2.75". Then the specs show that it is at 2.95" which is only about 1/8" wider than the stock tire. So, I thought, it should be fine. However, inflated the tire really measures about 3.25". Ouch, so what to do? I had to use a belt
  22. Better price and cheapest than Aliexpress offers with Free shipping Mini PLUS 70/804-6.5 tire pri USA US$20.59 AUSTRALIA AU$29.98 Europe 18,42€
  23. Hi everyone, I just got my first euc, a ninebot one e+. The tire came with a low pressure so I tried to inflate it following the comment on this forum. The problem is I can't get any pressure reading while I am still able to inflate the tire. I first try to connect the valve with the brass adapter to a schwin bike pump and connecting everything didn't even move the needle on the gauge. I change my pump to a bell bike pump and got the same result, finally I got another flexible extension instead of the oem brass extension and again same results. In all 3 cases the tire got inflated, I jus
  24. Hey all, nabbed a Z10 back in October and have been happily shortcutting urban transportation since. I recently checked the app and realized I've put 1000 miles on the wheel! I thought I'd ask if there is anything I should think about tuning up or checking out after this much mileage. The wheel is working great, and I'd love to make sure it stays that way. Any tips or advice?
  25.
