Rockwheel GR16 trouble


Coxeros

Recommended Posts

Hi!

Rode my GR16 yesterday and at the end of the run it started tilting backwards and forwards. It´s like it´s trying to find the correct level but misses every time, going back and forward. Kind of scary feeling.

Anyone got any suggestions on what could be wrong?

This phenomenon happens to every geared Rockwheel (when I used to ride them) without fail after a few months.  I refer to it as "stuttering".  Not sure if they finally resolved the issue with newer units.  They say it has something to do with a loose nut.

I guess your problem is that the nuts on the axle of your motor are loose. Because of the geared motor on the GR16, it has more torque than usual.

Even on direct drive unicycle, there´s nothing new that the axle nuts come loose from vibration and torque. This will make the wheel feel clunky, and give balance issues, as the axle will be cluncking/rocking backward and forward in the groove of the foot rest supports.

I recommend you check this, and apply some loctite when tightening the nuts to avoid them coming loose again :)
