Oh yeah, an additional note regarding my purchase.
Intelligent Walking Store was quick to respond when I had questions about tax and customs. No tax, no customs.
They had the best price for the MSX and they also included the following: mudguard, seat and new side pads.
I also got a $50 off coupon so the total price was 14300 SEK. If I would have ordered from Europe it would have cost me 50% more (around 22k).
Everything arrived in perfect condition. Pumped tyre, 80-90% charge. Around 500m mileage on the wheel.

I know there are a few threads regarding Intelligent Walking Store as well as some other Aliexpress stores so just sayin'. JUST SAYIN'!
Of course it took 100 years to get the wheel though. That's not their fault.

Cool story.

The wider the stance and the heavier a wheel is, the more you control it by upper body movement instead of shifting weight between the feet. Maybe that's what's confusing you after the narrow and light Ninebot.

Because wheels.

Such a wonderfully accurate summary of why everyone is here:D

<very fun read>

I really enjoyed reading this (and I've enjoyed your wheel videos - you and your wife look like you have fun together). I was laughing every time you started your day watching EUC videos and reading the Forum. So funny.

I'm glad that you're enjoying the new MSX experience. I think you 'get it' that it just takes time. This is what I like about owning such a variety of wheels. They all ride differently, some remarkable so. And yes, your legs will adjust to the MSX pads. I think my legs have been through so much, no matter what wheel I get on now I have zero leg/feet issues.

Too bad you got it during winter. You'll have a blast once the warmth returns.

I get the sense that you're the kind of guy that might love having fun on the Mten3. So don't forget about that little guy :)

Keep writing (and videoing) :cheers:

Glad you enjoyed! I'm still happy that I can ride though. During the summer I will be riding my boards as well so I will have quite  a few vehicles competing for my attention.

That's true! The Mten3 is definitely on my list.

Today I went for a 24km evening ride. It snowed a bit yesterday but the bike paths were all 99% free of snow.
Magic?
I don't know.

The MSX felt a lot more manageable today and I was able to take sharper turns, play around with the wheel more and I also went offroad on some snow. It just eats everything up! Awesome! I got some crazy winds while riding though (8m/s = 28km/h) so I was very happy that I was on a bigger wheel. Sometimes the wind came from the side, a few times from the front but the most hilarious was when it came from behind. I actually lol:ed because I was trying to brake but my body (winter clothes you know) was like a sail. While I was riding today I noticed that I no longer need to scan ahead of me as much which means I can carefully enjoy scenery now and then. My average speed was 18.5km/h and I accidentally hit 31.5km/h on a downhill so it was 90 minutes of bliss just riding. The fact that I can ride during the winter and during the dark is awesome! I live in Sweden after all. My only worry is if I will damage the wheel riding cold/snow/wet roads.

Otherwise it's been business as usual. Checking Aliexpress (Rock Wheel Store has a Ninebot Z10 for 15300 SEK (previously 17300)) with 10 days delivery time from their warehouse in Germany. Worth considering. Also the MCM5 went down another 10 dollars. Worth considering. I added the Mten3 to my basket to keep my eyes on the price. It's a bit expensive for a 512Wh wheel but on the other hand it's probably a blast to ride.

I've even started writing on the French Forum espritroue.fr! WHAT HAVE I BECOME???

I can offer this bit of wisdom to help allay your concerns about the EUC rabbit hole. After about the 8th wheel you will finally feel totally satiated. So there is light at the end of the tunnel :ph34r:

Thank you Marty. I'm pretty sure i'll reach a point where I run out of space at home before that though. I think.

Oh I forgot to mention. I asked my wife to try standing on the MSX. She liked the pedals and wasn't bothered by the angle. She didn't really have any trouble with the pads either.
We also tried the seat today. Just playing around in the hallway. I can imagine the ergonomics regarding riding seated are going to be a challenge. But I bet it's going to be fun too. Still for seated riding I guess it would be hard to beat the KS18S (possibly the monster as well but that thing is just so big and heavy.. but that 2400wh battery though).

I got the MSX on charge now. Might just ride it to work tomorrow, and then ride it during my lunch break. And then ride it home. Woohoo!

Trust me, you'll always be able to find more storage space :D

BTW, yes the Mten3 is expensive. But it is an insanely fun wheel that probably offers the most unique and satisfying riding experience available.

Haha damn man. So true. And the specs on it are ridiculous. Crazy max speed. Excellent weight.
My Ninebot One E+ gets me around 20km. The Mten3 would still get me 30km which is quite a lot.

Thanks for linking to that clip it put a smile on my face. :)

During my year off work i'm going to need some wheels to play with!
