First ride on the Nikola+ overheated --> FIXED!

Recommended Posts

I was thinking getting the Nikola now not sure as more and more people reports with problems here problems there, I just will wait for the new new batches I guess. I’ll stick with my Monster.

There was the original "Glue Gate" episode that was resolved early on. It can run hot when operating in tough conditions, but that's being addressed in the latest release. In my day-to-day usage it has not overheated on me.

Other than that, I'm not aware of problems with the Nikola.

Mark get the Nikola + 100v 1845Wh, I know you like speed.  @Dzlchef  Brian and I reached the top of overheat hill with no problem as you could see in  @Marty Backe Video. Plus I believe you weigh in lower than myself at 180 lbs.

When we did the Cogswell Dam dirt trails (32 miles) with Marty. Ray, Patrick, Mark and myself were hitting it hard up the trails with no over heat issues on my Nikola 84v 2100Wh wheel or their wheels.

EWheels has them in stock with a lower price! Pull the trigger!! :efef77eaf5:

FWIW, as soon as I fixed the fan, it works fine. I haven't come close to overheating it.  ;)

I agree with @Dave U get the 100V Nikola with the largest battery. You won't be disappointed. If so, I'll be happy to trade any of my wheels for it.

@M22 Mark Chanya was there on Mt. Wilson ride and saw what he saw.  16X's buzzing around the front of the pack.  Since Monster is such a fine road wheel, 16X for trails maybe better option.  :cheers:
