It might be worth putting in some units like lbs/kg and kph/mph ;) 

I think its pretty obvious the units he's referring to ie. 245lbs & 40-50kph. We Canucks are kinda screwed up being Commonwealth (Queen & all), kinda Frenchie (Official Language & all) & being stuck right next door to Big Honcho Chief Big Eagle (lotsa Guns, TV programs, fastfood, King Elvis & all). So our culture is a mishmash of 'em all. You'll understand if you live here😁

Where should I start... Let's go with the 5cm of suspension travel first. If you have the suspension pumped up perfectly for your weight, the travel is just shy of 1" up, and the same distance down fr

Not a very good torque wheel at that. Just came back from the NYC EX demo, which I wasn't originally planning on going to, but went along with @chulander and the Queens crew to eat and ride after

What I don't understand is this idea of a "one wheel fits all" mentality. I have a mountain bike and road bike. I've tried "hybrids" and found them to be dangerous combination of the two. With motorcy

What is the range you get in real life guys?

not easy to answer, i usually ride with other 1800wh wheels and i can say i'll end usually with more or less 30% more 

i've corrected the speed with -8% on EUC, now is accurate:thumbup:

this is a group ride https://euc.world/tour/594380264419212

85km - around 46% battery left

I'd love to find a wheel that could carry a 245 kg load around city streets at 50mph :D, but well noted.

Awesome Terry, please keep us posted on issues. I think you put your wheels thru hell (literally if anyone knows Edmonton weather🤩) so if it survives & thrives, I think it might be my next upgrade. Unless there's a Sherman SS (for Sport Suspension)👍

Amazingly Edmonton has a small cadre of hard-core winter riders now. We've got one guy taking a V11 through some fairly extreme single track winter mountain bike trails, another is running an 18xl with studded tires through a lot of the same stuff. And we've got another guy with a Sherman holding his own as well. One thing we have learned is that the absolute worst tire for winter riding is the street tire for the Sherman. The knobby does decently well though.

But I still have 'em all beat for braving ultra-cold conditions though, they're a bit wimpy when the temp goes below -20c. :lol:

Yup I fully admit I be one of 'em wussy puddy tats! Anyone that has experienced first hand 20+below with windchill would admit as well😅

Windchill is a given when one is flying around at 40km an hour in frigid temps, but it's all good with the right gear. Ski ,snowboard etc. or motorcycle gear all work great.

"Winterwheel" 's location says Edmonton in Alberta, Canada... up there in the Great White North, they use the metric systems since the 1970s...  so for speed wise, I think he meant 40 to 50 km/h, as most city speed limits are 50 km/h...   However, when it comes to personal weight or riding weight, I think we Canadians still pretty much stuck to lbs...  Imagine his riding weight is 245 kg, that would be 540 lbs! :D

To be fair, my comment was in jest but not putting in units makes it harder to read for those not in the same room as you. Not everybody understands that Canadians use the metric system except where they use imperial. I'll admit I drives me crazy when places like the US have gallons but they're different sized gallon to those used elsewhere. Having a few standards does avoid embarrassing mistakes like building a railway across America and finding when the two tracks meet in the middle that they've used different sized railway gauges. It even still happens now - I believe an American Mars orbiter crashed into Mars in 1999 because the guys at JPL were using inches and feet while NASA were on metric. It's easy to do though...

 20+below with windchill

Does this mean anything below :

  • +20C (pleasant)
  • +20F (need a scarf)
  • -20C or -20F (need good thermals)
  • 20K (a cold day on Pluto)
  • -20K (a new science discovery)
