mrelwood Posted June 24, 2017 Share Posted June 24, 2017 I have three two contenders to choose from: KingSong KS-16S, Rockwheel GT16, and Gotway ACM. (I'm joining the Gotway boycott, they messed up big time.) These models are often chosen from, but there are a lot of details I haven't seen discussed. What I'm hoping for are direct comparisons between the models. Please pick a few questions and share your experiences! My weight: 91kg (200lbs) Shoe: EU46, UK12, US13 Current EUC: IPS Xima Lhotz 520Wh Experience: 2000km (1250 miles) Riding style: Relaxed acceleration, but I like fast smooth trails. COMFORT: Is there a difference in riding comfort and leg fatique/numbness? Is there a difference in handling pot holes on gravel, or cracks on tarmac? Which has a smoother tiltback (and release) at speed/battery limit? I know they feel and handle differently, but how exactly? SAFETY: Is there a difference in surviving pot holes, sudden inclines and curbs? Is there a warning close to max torque or low battery? Which is more stable at walking speed? Would you trust only the tiltback if set at 35km/h, warning sounds disabled? How does the speed limit change when low on battery? (KS16: 25km/h below 50% battery?!) APP: Does the app auto-connect after EUC power cycle? Can the warning sounds be disabled below 35km/h? What is the precision on the battery meter? (Gotway 10%?) FEATURES: Which is the loudest/quietest regarding the high pitched whine? Which would you trust better in light rain and wet dirt? (Open structure and tight tyre space of the GT16 makes me worry.) Which is the better fit for daily trips at 30km/h in fine gravel cycleways, and light offroad (no city center)? Mods like routing the frame for more space for the wheel and a DIY mud flap are no problem for me, if that gets rid of the GT16 growing pains. Thank you!
