My V11 Trials, Tribulations, and Triumphs

Recommended Posts

So just to be clear. Those few mins has not even bought up some curiosity how this V11 would be to ride. 

Now admitted the demo wheel is a little obsolete since there are so many details that has changed to production and the later 2nd batch. 

It is too bad you didn't get to ride it more.

The V11 is officially dead. Well, this has been the shortest eval of a wheel yet.

When I bought the V10, it was basically dead on arrival. I didn’t give it a second chance.

I wounder the shower down by evX might have something to do with it. 

That some connection got water into it. It wound be interesting to know the cause at least. 

Now @Marty Backe I know you like GW (and probably the boxy look), but what do you think of the V11 now that you seen it irl?

Think it was the firmware update that wasn't compatible with the demo for some strange reason

Great news! Really looking forward to your first impressions riding with suspension. I would love a comparison of this and the Veteran when it comes to riding comfort.

I'm very impressed with the build quality of the V11 and the amount of metal in it. Everything that holds your body to the wheel is metal. The plastic only servers to contain the batteries.

And the simple way that the side saddles attach to the wheel make it possible for easy user created sides to be installed for a totally different look.

Just make sure the weather forecast doesn't have rain in it and don't ride in the ocean! ;)

Or those attacking water diversion channels around LA.

If I recall right they have swallowed a few GW wheels over the years....

Good point. I'm going to be riding along the beach and I might have been tempted to take it through the ocean surf. It may be best if I forego that with this wheel :)

Bumped into @maltocs at the beach today and let his son Brandon take the V11 for a spin

 

So, what did you find to be the optimal suspension pressure for a 6 yr old? :roflmao:

That kid has it DOWN! Control, precision, restraint, looking ahead, ... Everything that makes you a good rider! Amazing kid. I do feel sorry for his crotch though, the V11 is a tall wheel, the demo unit even more so. :blink:

Such a pleasure to watch him ride. Curious what the EUC industry will be unveiling when @maltocs turns 16.:confused1:

Strange sightings at your beach Marty. :blink1:

Have you been to Venice Beach? There's nothing strange here! Old guy on a unicycle chasing my kid with a camera, totally normal in Venice Beach. 😀😀
