flass Posted August 15, 2016 Share Posted August 15, 2016 Hi all! Yesterday I was out with some more and less experienced friends trying to learn to master the KS-16. One of my friends, who were trying for the second time and who are not at all able to ride without support tried to hop on by himself. He was practicing this for a couple of times. This ended up with him falling forward on the ground in a quite unlucky way so that he ended up with a fracture on one of his fingers and now he is bandaged for three weeks. As many other people he did not remember what happened that made him fall, if it was him doing something wrong or if the wheel behaved in an unexpected manner and so on. At that time I also chatted with two of the other friends who we were hanging out with and did not take any notice of what he was doing, therefore I have no idea myself either. With an unexperienced rider I would not have suspected anything else than that he made some mistake, BUT: while at the hospital, when we were walking - quite fast in a long open corridor - from the emergency department to the x-ray department I used the trolley handle bar to move the wheel while walking. After perhaps 20 to 30 meters I noticed that it suddenly powered off. The auto-balance was lost, the LED lighting turned off and yes, it was clearly powered off... After the visit at the hospital, I have powered it on again, walked with it in various angles, various speed, rapidly switching between forward and backward movements and so on, trying to reproduce the behavior, but have not managed to accomplish that. I am a bit confused as to what really happened ( and slightly worried if I can trust the wheel now or not...) and why and what to do now. Do any of you here have any advice? If I for example would disassemble the wheel and look for anything that may have caused this, what would I then look for? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
