Ya ewheels needs to send the wheels to Marty and Chooch first

Why Marty? :confused1: Is a overheating hill and range test so important?

Because I would like to see what the limits of a wheel are and what they are capable of (if you are able to).

Someone who can compare well because he has many wheels is good, but if the wheels are never used to their full potential, this comparison is missing.

Until such time as we get a single tester who can deal with all the parameters themselves, the next best thing is to ship test wheels to each person to do their particular 'thing' and then leave it for us as buyers to pick up the bones from each and assemble them into an 'overall' picture of the wheel.

What you state here is really accurate, but there will never be one rider that can conclusively cover all the varying test scenario's.  The way that eWheels sends wheels around the current circuit to all the different guy's works brilliantly IMHO.  Every person has their own differing environment and preferences on how they individually like to ride/test the wheels.  The data that we get to collate from all their individual comments, once gathered together, pretty much covers every likely scenario and would be impossible for one person alone to achieve!  Not everyone likes to ride "fast", not everyone likes to ride "off-road", not everyone rides in the "city", not everyone rides an EUC to "commute" etc. etc.

@PlanemoI couldn't agree with you more! It wasn't general, either. But the S18 is a wheel for another purpose in my eyes and has neither in NYC nor at Marty its best test environment. So why should it be with Marty first?

This was the point of my question.

Is the final production shock bracket/holder going to be silver or gold colored?

Anyone who says that isn't bad ass is either blind or mentally unsound.

The faux gold doesn’t look good. Brassy is the word for it (meaning tastelessly showy, not as a description of the color, even though that fits too).

Silver looked better.

I ordered the black one, which is significantly more bad ass than the white version. The bad assness is even higher if we were the only who ordered it in black.

Got to disagree, but I will agree with you that it’s not gold - but I don’t think of it as gold, and I think the majority of people who see it wouldn’t call it gold either. Perhaps I’m just weird. Looks like a cross of a bronze and a lighter tan...a metallic light bronze?
