Acturbo Posted August 8, 2017 Share Posted August 8, 2017 Hey everyone, The time has come. I have now put 350 miles on my MCM4 and have decided to upgrade to a newer better faster bigger longer lasting wheel. So here goes.................... First things first - I know some of these wheels have suffered from the Gotway Oscillation issue. This wheel will be coming from Jason. Have all these concerns for the most part been resolved? Now that that's out of the way here goes: I have heard much praise from everyone regarding the ACM, I see lots of people reporting that it is their favorite wheel. I have actually ridden the ACM a couple of weeks ago during a group ride. I can say with my limited time with it it was very enjoyable and felt very stable and fast compared to the MCM4. I have never ridden the MSuper. Here are my questions: Will there be a noticeable stability difference from the MSuper to the ACM? In my area there are many uneven roads and potholes so the 18" wheel could be a big help. My current size/weight is 6'1" 220 lbs. I am on the heavier side for EUC riders. Bigger wheel may be better for me since I am on the heavier side. From others experiences what are the top speeds of both all things being equal? I'm not looking to max it out all the time and risk my safety but being able to ride at a sustained speed around 15-20 mph would be preferable. Currently my MCM tops out at 17 mph due to my size and weight and yells at me constantly. I also have found it a lot of fun taking my EUC on trails intended for mountain bikes. I would think the 18" wheel would handle the terrain better, however, the higher torque from the ACM might be nice as well. I also enjoy long trips. Either choice would be the 1600 Wh variant. The minor difference in price would not be a deciding factor. Lastly, I am going to need something that lasts. I'll be dropping close to $2000 on this wheel and I will need it to last me quite a while. Thanks everyone for any input you can provide. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
