  1. 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 actually just a fat 16" that measures 17" across. To be clear, it still fits on a standard 16" EUC rim (except maybe the rime is thicker from left to right, I don't know, Ecodrift measured the motor windings of the Nikola at 3cm, but I just measured the motor winding on my 3 year old KS14C. Guess what! 3cm. But I have it on good authority the manufacturers do not has the same motor suppliers) Right, so, here's the skinny: Most tyres have the actual rim size and width (distance between the rims across the tyre from side to side, often wider than the rim) in mm, stamped on the sidewall So: If you want a tyre for your 14" wheel look for a tyre with yy-254 where "yy" equals the width (yy details below) e.g.47-254, 57-354, 64-354, 76-254 and 254 = a 10" rim If you want a tyre for your 16" wheel look for a tyre with yy-305 e.g. 57-305, 64-305, 76-305. 305 = a 12"rim If you want a tyre for your 18" wheel look for a tyre with yy-355 e.g. 64-355, 76-355. 355 = a 14" rim If you want a tyre for your 22" wheel look for a tyre with yy-489 e.g. 64-489, 76-489. 489 = a 19.25"rim (not sure if that exists) So in theory even a 17" tyre will display 305 on the sidewall, because the size of the rim hasn't changed. "yy" chart 47mm = 1.75" 57mm = 2.125" 64mm = 2.5" (actually its 63.5mm but my 2.5" tyre says 64, so I assume they all round up) 76 or 77 = 3" For example, If you're looking for a tyre for your 16" wheel anything with a secondary sizing designation of yy-305 will fit. However too skinny or too fat could cause problems, both with your rim fitment, and possibly the area in the wheel cavity within the EUC itself. I hope this helps, and remember, my advice is worth what you paid for it, so verify my finding before plunking down your Sheckles for a shiny new tyre from across the seas. And don't forget to consider your inner tube issues.
  2. I'd like to know how many other 16" EUC riders here have experience with the Maxxix Hookworm 16" street tire. https://www.amazon.com/Maxxis-Hookworm-BMX-Tire-16X1-95/dp/B00188A1LG After recently switching over I can safely say that this will be my tire of choice for my KS16S. I thought the wheel was nimble before but this has brought it to a whole new level. It allows me to make sharp turns and carve like I never thought possible. One downside is that it can make the wheel a bit more prone to wobbles but no big deal. Couldn't recommend higher for all experienced riders of 16" wheels
  3. First time user here, just purchased Ninebot One S2, after having miniPro for a couple of months I decided to try something more challenging, and kids took over miniPro anyway. Now while doing some exercises I noticed very low tyre pressure. But I'm unable to reach tyre valve to top it up to 40-45PSI as recommend. The valve is not in parallel with a tyre (like on some youtube videos) and it makes it absolutely impossible to connect the extender. You can see it on the photo attached. Lack of Segway support is really frustrating, for the price we pay, there should be at least a phone number to call, or a chat or something, submitting the form not helping, no response at all. And I'm surprised there is very little info online about Ninebot S1/S2, is it not widely used?
  4. I am using Slime in all my wheels and had recently my first two punctures after almost 8000km. The good news: I could recognise a tiny leak by fluid leaking from the valve stem before I even noticed a loss of air pressure. Slime also helps a lot to find the location where the tube is leaking, as the leak spits out the fluid. The bad news: even a comparatively small puncture wasn't fully sealed. Repair becomes slightly more difficult, as, I believe, vulcanisation only works on a Slime-free tyre and the leak doesn't quite stop to spit out Slime. Overall a tyre sealant is a safety improvement, so I will keep using it. I just wonder whether there are better products out there than Slime.
  5. Curious to see the favorite tire size preference for the favorite 16" EUC category....
  6. Hi all ! I have been riding almost 500km on my Ninebot E+ and I wonder how often the tyre should be replaced. After 1000km ? 2000km ? How can I see if the tyre is worn out ? Kind regards
  7. Found this one , looks good Captain gripmaster
