My Sherman Trials, Tribulations, and Triumphs

What an awesome wheel. Little neutron star:D

Marty, be careful your cape doesn't get caught by the tire and sucked into the wheel well. Looked close at times. That might be an unexpected and nasty crash.

I wish they’d used a different color for the flashing lights. Blue flashing lights are illegal in most states for bicycles and motorized vehicles.

Its a generic light one can buy on Ali, it was shared somewhere around here.
If Veteran could get the producer to program white side LEDs for fixed "positioning light" for day time it would be nice, but considering the volume I doubt it.

The cape might be adding some drag and maybe using 1% battery, but its worth it. Looks damn cool. Someone was shouting Batman!! while Marty passed em.

The knobby tire is likely making the Veteran nimble on asphalt while the low pedals make it very controllable.

Ian from speedyfeet said you can turn the blue light off of you hold in the light button i don't know if it's separate to the main light though

Yes you can turn it OFF; actually I believe it it OFF by default, and you Press-Hold Power to turn it ON.   If it is OFF though you have no running lights, which is why it should be changed so you can still have a running light if desired., which is not the full headlight.

Agree it would be nice for sure. But running the full headlight may not be a problem with 3100wh, lol. Even Marty is having trouble running this thing out of juice.

Can't wait for the video 👍 I've pre ordered the v11 i really want a suspension wheel but i love the Sherman for long rides,, I'm falling in love with it 😊 might have to sell my Z10 and msx and look at the sherman ,, that would leave me with mten3,16x,v11,sherman still 😊😊 even my fat ass could get 80 miles maybe at steady pace

Feels like a cross between an MSX and Monster, but of course different. I think it's great weight and relative small size (compared to a Monster) makes it very stable and reassuring as you ride it.

I thought it was going to be awkward kind of like the Monster is, but it turns out it's "closer" to the MSX in handling. The Gotway wheels can feel dense and massive, which is the Sherman. Nobody would describe Inmotion or KingSong wheels that way.

If you're a big fan of KingSong and/or Inmotion than you probably won't like the Veteran all that much.

thank you.
