xebeche Posted October 2, 2016 Share Posted October 2, 2016 Hi, I am 40 years old total newbie, who after month long lurking around the forum and gathering all the useful insights and reviews decided to buy Inmotion V5F+ as my first wheel. Reading all the positive experiences I bought the wheel through @Jason McNeil and can only say that his highly regarded status is more than deserved, man has been very forthcoming and answered all my questions before and after the purchase. Wheel came in perfect condition, with some very nice and useful accessories like the handle and protective cover added for free by Jason. Through watching the videos and reading all the helpful advices on the forum, I managed to get a grip on the wheel in few days and now after 3 weeks I already have 550km on it. I am using it for daily commute to work when the weather allows (8km in one direction) and for strolling around the city. After years of only driving by car it feels like re-exploring the city all over again. After one week my wife and older son also started learning. Son is already able to ride very well and wife is able to ride 10-15 meters You can imagine that the wheel took some beating serving as a learning wheel for three people, but so far it is performing flawlessly. It has plenty of range (I am 82kg and it still had 29% battery left after 34km trip), more than enough speed for the first wheel and it climbs up the steep hills very easily. Obviously I don’t have much experience but my only gripe might be with the tire that came with the wheel. Tire is “Hota” brand in dimension 14x2.125, it is kind of “slick” tire and I find that it lacks some grip on the fine gravel. When it gets hot after longer rides it gets somewhat “mushy” and it is not able to hold the pressure above 40 PSI - I pump it to 45 and after 10 minutes it is again on 40 (on the tire it states – inflate to 36 PSI). I would like to know has someone experimented with tires and found out which ones are the best all around tires? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
