KS16S (700km) for sale in Austria (Vienna/Styria)


Recommended Posts

I'm selling my KS16S for 990€, including Charger and original papers and bill (warranty). I bought it April this year.

At the moment it has slightly below 600 km on it, but because I'll ride it until I have sold it, there may be ~700 km on it at the end.

Here is the link for more details (in German):

What are you getting next, Herman? 

Good question ! ?

After taking a short look in my private crystal ball I must say I'm not sure.  I'm between Ninebot Z10 (which would be a change of wheelsize) and Gotway Tesla (which I would prefer, if I wouldn't dislike so much the way how Gotway wheels are built).  But the Z10 looks really great, and has the big advantage of the fat tube, which needs not be inflated that hard, which makes it a softer ride offroad. So while I'm writing that, I think I tend 60% towards the Z10.

But I want to test ride both before I buy one.

To be honest, the KS16S is a great wheel for the city and on bike lanes, but I'm a little bit disappointed about the torque uphill, and it's not that good offroad or on gravel roads. I live in a very hilly terrain and like to ride offroad.  I expected more from the upgrade from 16B to 16S.

Z10 looks good.  Don't know how well it can go around corners at lower speeds though.  Tesla is fun and a good all rounder. Get both and skip that Sophie’s choice!!!:w00t2:

Good advice. If you give me the 2000$ something for the Z10 I'll do that, and I offer you coffee, selfmade cakes and a free ride during your next visit in Austria. ?

I tried expert mode and "riding mode" (I was used to expert mode from the 16B, but after the first 200 km or so on the 16S I changed to riding mode, because I had the impression that it is slightly better uphill).  Don't misunderstand me, I still like it, it's a great wheel, but I expected more difference between 16B and 16S, especially for my offroad purposes.

Actually I would keep it, if I could afford a Z10 as a 2nd wheel, but my wife would kill me if I own 2 wheels. ?

You're not considering the KS-18L at all?

It's still there - if I don't get 990€, I'll keep it. ??

It's nice to ride with it in the cities and on bikelanes. I had only the wish to sell it because I would prefer ONE wheel for all purposes, also for offroad.

But as mentioned, because it's quite new and clean, with original warranty, I'll not sell it below 990€.

welcome to the club... I tried to convince my wife to learn riding, but she don't want to... so the WAF (women acceptance factor) is very small over here. 

also, viel erfolg beim Verkauf!

No, because of the slim tire. The Z10 will be clearly better offroad.

The Z10 is 4.1 inch, while the KS18L is 2.5 inch, even if it seems like there is more difference.
At least that is what I thought until I received my new 18L a couple of days ago.

I was happy to see it was "wide" as the IPS Lhotz (also 2.5 inch). For some reason I thought it would be 2 inch, but I guess it wouldn't make sense for a 18 inch wheel.
Best of luck with the sale :)
