Second hand GT16, interesting mix of highs and lows

It's not for everyone. The downsides are:

  • The pedal rubber float over the rim of the metal, which gives a slightly mushy feel to the rim. This together with the damper silicone inlay under the pedal can make the pedals feel less than solid.
  • The screw that are supposed to secure the pedals in the upward position is a minimal allen screw right into the alu. It is ridiculously easy to strip the threads.
  • The design while looking very cool mean you have a very narrow knee-pad. It takes some getting used to it.
  • The shell would really benefit from some internal strengthening, as it is riding with one leg will lead to wheel scraping.
  • The beeper could be a lot louder, and the electronics a lot more silent.
  • There is no IP-classification for water resistance. Usually it is perfectly OK in bad weather, but there are no guarantees.

The upside?

  • PPPPOOOOWERRRRR (insert Jeremy Clarksson voice here)
  • Agility
  • FUN!
  • Nice price.

I don't need a "daily" wheel so the water proofing is not an issue to me.

Currently riding an mten3, so I'm used to narrow wheels I guess.

I can't ride with one leg, so no shell issues there :lol: 

 

Worst case I'll 3d print some new pedals. What could possibly go wrong :lol:

I nearly pulled the trigger on a Gotway MSuper X, but then again, having never ridden a wheel of that size, maybe it wouldn't be the best of ideas :D

I go to bloody AliXpress at least every other day and hover over the "add to cart" button on the MSX... ;)

Red, but apparently there are 2 reds. Shiny red and matte red.

I didn't really notice I ordered the shiny one. Changed my order to matte and got a second charger thrown in FOC.

Wheel should be shipped tomorrow.
