Different spec same design. This has been in aliexpress for probably at least one month. Did Gotway adopt the design or some sort of partership maybe?

@Linnea Lin Gotway was saying (on FB) that it's the same shell but different motor and electronics. Hope she can confirm that here again.

Seems logical.  There must be a market for these that Gotway recognizes from their earlier product.

Yes, just the same in shell, but other spec. are not the same, expecially mainboard.

If Gotway is using an existing shell to bring down the cost (and eventually the price), I am okay and happy about it. But the other one from aliexpress has a 430Wh version while the Gotway version has only 200Wh max. Althought we may have a doubt on the actual capacity of the other one, it seems Gotway is only fitting half the number of cells in the shell (probably a 16s instead of a 16s2p?). Is it because Gotway is using the existing available Gotway battery packs and electronics without any customization work? A new Gotway 10inch wheel is very attractive and practical to me. But having only 200Wh is a little disappointing. In a 10inch wheel, 200Wh can't really bring you too far.

The pedals look indeed like a deal breaker, at least for adults.

What's wrong with the pedals? It's got the same floor to pedal clearance as the Mten1 and Mten2. Or is it the "V" shape you don't like?

AFAICS they are super-short.

These

 

seem to be larger, aren't they?

Yeah I guess the Mten1 pedals do scrape the ground. That was my Mten1 in the video btw (and I shot the vid). I thought that you thought the pedal height of this "luffy" is lower than Mten1 & 2. I measured my Mten2 to be 100mm (I didn't measure my Mten1 because it's in Shenzhen and I'm in Hong Kong right now. Well the @Linnea Lin Gotway measured the luffy and said it's 107mm. The spec sheet on this thread says 100mm. Not sure if that's really the case as I haven't measured the real thing myself.

Is there any new information on these?  Has anyone received one?  I see them on Speedyfeet's website now but have not found an english review.  Would this be a slower, lighter alternative to an IPS Zero?  Or is is more of a short range toy?  The >400 WH available battery makes me think it was intended to be ridden for significant distances (true 10 km or more at a time?).  Would it be silly to try to ride this 10 km?
