16x Issues Thread

Recommended Posts

When I got my new Control Board V1.5 last week I asked KS if I needed the Bluetooth patch. The answer was "not sure". :efee612b4b:

So I made the patch and all is fine until now. 

Since your problems sound exactly like the Bluetooth problems, I would definitely make the patch.

If it doesn't work then you need a new board like me.

Okay, I guess I'll ask eWheels for the BT patch and try to flash, I'll try to report back next weekend.

You don't have to stop eWheels from working for that. :efee612b4b:

You can download it from here

No dice, flashed it, restarted.  But after ~6 minutes it nearly forced me off the wheel again with extreme tilt back at low speeds.  I guess it's up for a v1.5 control board.  At least it works without music playing for now.

I think I’m just waiting for someone to tell me that their 16 X blew up a small town or something. It would go something like this. “ I was just riding my 16 X having a great time and then it cut out on me and I immediately face planted on the ground but the wheel kept going by itself into a small town and then blew it up“.  Good grief.

Will not happen... 

It cannot blow up 😉 but it can melt down like a nuclear power plant... That is why you get the extra milage ⚛️😉

So how is the weatherproofing or lack there of? So far it seems to more towards the latter...

I'm considering buying a new 16¨ and being able to ride in the rain is important. (and i don't like the looks of the nikola)

Just to be balanced, above I complained about the BT patch not solving my tilt issue w/music playing -- but otherwise I'm liking the wheel a lot.  I finally mind-melded with it a couple weeks ago.  I was thinking maybe it might be a short affair (wrt feeling) but nah dawg, I'm going to keep it.  I probably won't bother swapping control boards.  Or, I'll wait ~6mo in case v1.5 is superseded.

In that case I would choose another wheel. Kingsong engineers themselves have said that it is not designed for heavy rain.
Several riders have had malfunctions because of water. Some are even afraid to ride on wet surfaces.
I have been on plenty of wet surfaces and also light rain and no signs of humidity or water upon opening the wheel at 1900km. 2700km on my wheel now.

Have you considered the 18XL (go for the new one with the 2200w motor).  It is a great wheel. Otherwise you have the V10F which was revised with proper water sealing after the initial release.

Ok, pity they didn't consider that a priority even my 'old' ACM doesn't mind rain... Gues i'll look into other wheels instead unless there are plans om improving this in a next batch?

I'm looking for a new wheel. I have a V10F and I want something stronger. I have 190cm / 100 kg and 16x attracts me. I like to ride in the woods, where there are also steep hill and downhill. Riding in dust and wet terrain is frequent for me. But it looks like the 16X is an indoor bike with exaggeration ... ?? I'm afraid 18x won't be agile enough. I don't understand why the 16X is not waterproof and dustproof ...!

Hledám nové kolo. Mám V10F a chci něco silnějšího. Mám 190cm / 100 kg a 16x mě přitahuje. Ráda jezdím v lesích, kde jsou také strmé svahy a klesání. Časté je pro mě jízda v prachu a vlhkém terénu. Ale vypadá to, že 16X je kolo do interiéru s nadsázkou ... ?? Obávám se, že 18x nebude dost hbitý. Nechápu, proč 16X není vodotěsný a prachotěsný ...!

Gotway Nikola by asi stálo za zvážení, pokud nestačí 16x ochrana proti povětrnostním vlivům. Ale vy jste vysoký jezdec, 18XL vám může dobře dopadnout. Elektrické podložky pomáhají stabilitě při prudkém stoupání.

I'm sorry for wrong language. I made repair.. Thanks for the answer.
