    V8 offroad. How tough is it?

    Hi, I unexpectedly found myself on a gravel track the other day for the first time. I missed a turn and Google Maps sent me down a forest track. I decided to give it a shot because it didn't seem too rough, but about halfway in, it got pretty gnarly (glad I'd been practising low-speed turns; being able to make sharp turns at less than 5 km/h to avoid big rocks definitely saved the day!). Luckily, I'd decided to strap my (cheap) Gopro (knock off) to my helmet that day, for the first time, so I actually have footage of the ride. My question is...how strong is the V8's axle (I weight 77 kg / 170 lb fully dressed and wearing winter coat + all protective gear) and how bad is this kind of track for the V8? Do I risk damaging the wheel on the kind of terrain shown below (and going the speed I was going)? Thanks! P.S. Sorry for the shaky footage...no image stabilisation...
  2. Hi, I want to sell my Inmotion V8 with nearly 512,8km on it, bill available (august 2017) from rollingbull.de Its in top condition and comes in original packaging and with the protection sleeve. Starting at 550€
  3. 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.

    V8 covers / padding?

    My InMotion V8 just got delivered yesterday, and I've been able to get two practice sessions in so far! I'm slowly getting the hang of it and am trying to catch the wheel when I lose my balance, but I've managed to scratch up the bottom of the pedals and pedal hinge. What are you guys using to pad your wheels, and where are you placing them? Photos would be great!
  5. I recently found out that I could not fully charge my V8 using the original factory default 84V 1.5A charger. The charger light always turns green while the battery indicator on V8 is still blinking. Tried few different experiments using Charge Doctor Voltage output with 3 different chargers: Charger A - my oldest charger, about 15 - 16 months usage, indicates 79.8V - 79.9V. Charger B - about 6 months usage, indicates 80.5V - 80.6V. Charger C - about 3 months usage, indicates 81V. I have never really noticed the Voltage while they were brand new though. Are they supposed to be exact 84V showing on Charge Doctor? Could anyone with V8 and Charge Doctor confirm please? What is wrong with these? Which components are failing/aging and need to be replaced? Is it normal for chargers to have output voltage drops overtime like this? I believe I have always taken good care of them.
  6. Where's a good place to get parts for a V8 in Canada? Specifically I need an inner tube, and I'd rather not pay an arm and leg for shipping and duty, etc. Where can I get one cheap? Can I save a bunch of money and use this one from Walmart? https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/bell-sports-16-self-sealing-inner-tube/6000189084450

    EUCs in Japan

    Hi there, I read various questions on how EUCs are spreading in Japan. So I decided to share some pictures and videos from our group here in the Kansai area. Please ? enjoy! https://photos.app.goo.gl/otwk8fFTsSQbnyM43
  8. its directional instability drives me nuts. Driving this wheel straight along longitudinal grooves is more challenging than making small backward circles (which is, admittedly, with this wheel surprisingly easy). I didn't have any crash, but the wobbles are crazy scary and make precise steering super difficult. What is your experience? I suspect the main or even sole reason might be the Kenda tire?

    Inmotion V8 cover wanted

    I just recently put a deposit down on a new inmotion V8 from ewheels.com. Thanks Jason! I came to find out that inmotion no longer makes the protective cover. I was wondering if anyone has one they're willing to sell me.
  10. Hi , my v8 took a little a fall because of a pedestrian... since that 1- the battery indicator doesn’t show up anymore when charging. 2- the Bluetooth doesn’t disconnect when I turn off the unit manually. I have to quit the app on the phone for completely disconnecting. 3- I can’t turn off the wheel with the app anymore. has someone got those problems before !? I will probably open it and check the wire this weekend.

    Inmotion App and Battery

    Dear all, My Inmotion V5+ does not seem to charge full to 100% as indicated on the app anymore. While the light from the adapter (that rectagular block thing) switches from red to green, when I connect to the app the percentage is always only 90 something, never 100%. Moreover, when I connect to the app while charging the V5+, there seems to be no indication on the app to say that it is indeed charging. Any help? TIA

    Can not activate v8 locate failed

    Hi i have one new not activated inmotion v8. But when i try to activate it and fill standart password "000000" i receive error "locate failed" My seller from ali told that it is international version and i will be able to use app everywhere. Could someone help me with this? It is my second v8 bought form that seller and my first one working perfectly with app.
  13. The InMotion V10 is improved over the V8 in almost every aspect as described in this review, and I am excited to try out the wheel soon! Apart from the obvious (power, range,...) I highly appreciate the notably improved pedal ground clearance, the slim shape and the wider tire. Yet, two specification parameters have become notably worse. The weight went up by 7kg from 13.5kg to 20.6kg and the overall wheel size increased notably by 8.5cm in height and 7cm in length (the width increased by only 1cm, which is highly appreciated). (source) These specifications attract users towards the high-end range: those who went in the past for the Msuper instead of the V8. But will they also attract the "mass market", the millions of not-yet EUCers, those users who went for the V8 instead of the Msuper in the past? I have my doubts and I couldn't recommend it to the potential newcomers I know of. Personally, I may still buy the V10, but I am also desperately waiting for a wheel which supersedes the V8 in all its specifications, or at least doesn't fall behind. This is certainly much more challenging to develop (more power, more range, larger pedals, better light, a USB port, a wider tire and yet lighter and not larger), but this is where technological improvements should take us.

    Inmotion App for Android

    I hope to encourage @Bobwheel and Inmotion/Solowheel to share more info on the new V10 gen. app for android. Of course, some development updates/ info and expected release date would be nice to know too. As for features, can someone confirm if this app will support any tope of smart watch/wear type to show speed and maybe even a horn/bell option. The last part is high on my interest list due to road legality/ traffic laws.
  15. Some of the mods I've done. Stickers to cover all the scratches ? A front bumper/stand (3mm aluminium flatbar, bend to shape, double sided tape to hold it on) Larger foot pads/plates/pedals (remove skid pads, remove top plate, 5 screws, screw on 4mm aluminium plate cut to fit and drilled for existing screw holes, add skateboard deck tape). Should make longer trips easier on my feet. Heaps of grip. Folds as original, and I've had no pedal strikes in testing so far. I used the original plates as template for the holes and slot. Used longer screws (10mm). 600km's on the wheel so far, and loving it. What have you done to yours?

  17. Hi everyone! I wonder wheter there is possibility to get some new led lights patterns for the V8. In my app, there are only 6-8 recommended patterns (I dislike most of them) and then I can do my own. I tried to do my own, but Im not patient and creative enough to do them. Is there a way to download more patterns, maybe what other people created? I didn't find one. Thanks.
  18. Hey, I have inmotion v8 more than a year now, drove around ~1000 km. Face planted only once (after 3 months of usage) when I reaches "I'm-too-cool-to-look-at-road" mastery level, hit the pothole in the road, the only real damage was torn clothes as I was with helmet, wrist guards and bikers jacket. Today I was driving my usual route on a kind of dry day (10C), battery ~90% full and driver blocked my path with the car on pedestrian walk, I had like ~15 meters to stop from ~25-27ish km/h speed. No bigy, done that before, just lean back, look awesome, reduce speed to put one foot down and turn 90o. v8 started wobble front/back like ABS (anti-braking system) in cars do, like never before, this intermittent braking shook my feet of the EUC and we were both sliding under the car. Ti's was only a mere scratch - to me, EUC, my self-respect. Shook of the dust, hopped on EUC and continued down my usual route. Two kilometers later, was doing pathetic sub ~20 km/s and started gently braking before ~80o angle turn. That son of a b*tch shook me of in same (tilting quickly front/back/front/back) way as few minutes back, EUC ended up driving in car road, got under the car, broke bunch of EUC plastic covers, left me sitting on my ass. Anyone had this behavior with v8? P.S. I changed to summer tire few weeks back, not sure if related.

    Bluetooth password problem

    I just got the Solowheel Glide 3 (Inmotion V8) and can’t reconnect to the wheel by Bluetooth. When I set up the app there was a password for the app and a separate password for connecting the wheel to Bluetooth. I am quite certain when creating the password for Bluetooth there were letters and numbers as options and even wrote it down immediately afterwards. But now trying to reconnect it only shows numbers. Has anyone else dealt with this or know how to reset the Bluetooth connection password? I’ve written Solowheeel and they didn’t know off hand but are working on it. Great service from Jeff by the way. I’m impatient and want to know MPH, distance and play with the lights. Today was my first day riding a wheel, oh I’m in love! Tha ks in advance.
  20. Hi everyone, I've been having this issue for quite a while now and have really just been avoiding riding the wheel for any significant distance. With the Discord chat slowing down lately, I figured I'd post here to maybe get some ideas. Basically the V8 is sounding the "Be prepared" warning, flashing red, and doing the forced tilt back till stopped at really high charge. Looking at the official app it will read 85-90% charge some of the time. Watching the temperatures in the official app or in Wheellog don't seem to show anything out of the ordinary. It's been cold enough where I am too so it's unlikely to be a temp issue. Often the wheel will start up again, sometimes needing two or three tries. If the charge was high enough it will run for another 1/4-1 mile and do the same thing. Once it's down to about 80% charge the only way to ride is to go as slow as possible, but even then it will trigger the tilt back. Eventually it completely refuses to turn on despite having over a 70-75% charge. I've only had the wheel a bit over a year, and I think it has around 150-200 miles on it. The issue has been happening for basically the whole time I've had it, bar for the first month or two. I'd have swapped out the battery by now, or sold and replaced the wheel to someone better equipped to fix it, but I had to save for a really long time just to get this wheel in the first place, so any budget friendly ideas would be great. Thanks in advance.

    Tire dimentions and clearances

    I there everyone, was wondering, if the tires for the inmotion v8s, are the same ones for the kingsong KS 16s, I know they are both kenda tires, was wondering if the tires for the v8s or the KS 16s have any kinda of Kevlar on em? Does kenda tires have Kevlar? Can I use the v8 tire interchangeably for use on the kingsong KS16s? And also does anyone one know the dimensions for each one of these two tires? I know that the v8 doesn’t give you much clearance for using different kinds of tires on it, but is it the same thing for the KS16s? Does the kingsong KS 16s has more clearance for you to use a 16’ tire from a bicycle? I already know that the problem really is the inner tubing on these, finding the right one. Still don’t know if I could use a Bicycle tire, that is 16 inches with the same dimensions on the Kingsong KS 16s The dimensions for the kenda v8 tires are: 50 - 305 (16’ x 1.95), does anyne know the dimensions for the kenda that is used on the KS 16s? Thank so for much for your times guys Y’all have a great evening...
  22. Hey Guys, Finally got my V8 from @Jason McNeil in London UK at wheelgo.com. I can't recommend him enough. Him and his colleague Stefan have been so helpful, generous and patient before and after purchase. I was even able to learn to ride backwards on their beat-up IPS132 before getting my V8 and I'm glad I did! Thank you Jason and Stefan. I've rarely seen customer service like this. I love this wheel. The cut-off button and the trolley are indispensable. The thinness of the wheel and the nice size of the pedals also add a lot to the comfort, not to mention the safety of having a pedal height of 150mm for sharp turns. It's super responsive which is a must, especially with all these pedestrians in London. Here's my issue though. Every time I make a pronounced turn, the pedals lean forward a lot and STAY forward when I'm riding straight right after. I have to lean back for a short time to make them straight again. I'm guessing this is normal BUT I figured I could adjust the angle in the "turning and forwarding adjustment" menu in the app. It doesn't work. I've tried putting the wheel on sleep mode on its side but nothing works. Has anybody succeeded in adjusting how much forward the pedals lean when you turn? Thanks! Took me 6 hours to put the padding on the wheel haha. OCD to the rescue!
  23. So if you guys remember I had a few crashes with my V8. One was my fault (if we can say that because it's actually the manufacturer's fault if we think about it) and another one today with the Tesla what was caused by the lack of power(?) just like with the V8. Small(!) Pothole + high speed = the wheel couldn't keep up. I accepted that with the V8 because I'm a heavy guy (95kg) and I pushed the V8 to its limits. But today the same happened with the Tesla. I didn't push the Tesla to its limits. I was at about 30-35km/h speed when I hit a 1cm deep 1m long pothole what caused the pedals to tilt forward by about 40 degrees. Something like this but 1m long: The wheel after that over compensated (tilted backwards) and I fell back. Nothing major just a little pain in my leg and more attention to the road imperfections next time. I start to see a clear picture that we're just bunnies to these manufacturers who will get fucked eventually by these shitty unsafe wheels. (especially if it's a gotway based on their history)

    V8 pedal durability

    this is how my left pedal looks like after about 500km. Is it that the grip tape doesn't like sand?
  25. Hello again! It's been a while since I've been on the forums. I'm looking to upgrade from my Ninebot One C+ and IPS Zero 240Wh. I'm living near my college campus, looking to save money on gas, time with parking, and have fun. However, I don't trust my Zero commuting off campus (or at higher speeds) and the Ninebot is too slow to be safe in the bike lane. I've been looking at the Gotway MCM4 for a while now but it seems like no one's agreed on how safe it is. What do you guys know about it? HS vs HT? The Inmotion V8 looks amazing and really reliable, but if I can go faster and go further for less money... Thanks! Also: the MSuper V2 HS is about the same price as the Inmotion V8. Obviously difficult to compare but I'd much rather have an over-capable wheel than an under-capable one.
