Good to see you on the Forum, King Ma!

Here's something for you to think about -

I am a 66 year old, lightly-built male and I have had an Airwheel for 2 years now.

I was almost ready to buy a V8 as an upgrade from the Airwheel when I began to realise I was getting lower-back pain from the bumps and vibrations of the the rough surfaces I have to ride on.

I am now very reluctant to invest more money in this mode of transport if it is going to cause pain to my spine.

Has your company considered adding some type of shock absorber or suspension to a wheel?

My age, and the fact that I have a history of lower back strains may mean that I am suffering where a younger, fitter person would not have a problem.

Nevertheless, I have been reducing the number of rides I have on my wheel to avoid discomfort.  

I am very disappointed about this because I love the experience of 'Wheeling' and I really thought it might be my future transport around my city.

What do you think about the idea of shock absorbers on an Electric Wheel?

The currently available solutions are (i) a fat tire run with comparatively low pressure. That rules out the V8, on which even the 2.125 only barely fits. (ii) soften the knees, which is exhausting (muscles will build up) but adds comfort to the back and safety in general.

There are top milage people who have hacked the app to make themselves the leaders. This week's top leader even brags about cheating the milage on his Time line, and other social media. It is very discouraging for the users and is possibly the reason why people use other apps and forums instead of the Inmotion one.

But a guy having 22,000 miles on a L6 is just not possible in real life driving. He was using a dremmel to fool the wheel, but now has hacked into the app. I want no part in that sort of Tom foolery! Why does Inmotion sanction this behavior by allowing it so stridently to take place?

@King Ma - INMOTIONhey, i tried to send you an email but it got rejected!

 

Thank you for letting us know. I must say that I’m not at all surprised, we had one flurry of activity from him for about two weeks and then he hasn’t been back to the forum since September 4th. I don’t think he lasted very long in the job and he certainly squirmed about and became uncommunicative when challenged on the Inmotion / Solowheel deal.

A real pity as good representation by Inmotion on this forum would be a huge asset.

Hello friend, when will a faster and more powerful Inmotion come out?

Yup!

Loving my V8, but always having to ride deep into tiltback just to get the extra couple of kph to go a bit faster than the limiting 30 kph; its no fun.

Have been waiting for a year for a possible "V10" with 18 inches and 50 kph capability.

Well, tired of waiting already, so just bought myself a Gotway Tesla. Other than being obviously heavier and bulkier (and more effort is needed to control it due to the fact that I'm a scrawny 127 pound guy), surprisingly, the Tesla and the V8 ride characteristics seems pretty similar - responsive and fast (53 kph tested)!

Hi,  could I ask a question about the SCV correction?   What is the correct procedure?

Does tilt have to be set to 0.0 first?     Does it need to be on and resting on either front or rear bumper,  or on its side (and if on the side is there any consideration if I've got lots of padding preventing it from the same horizontal it would have been without it)?

My understanding of the SCV Correction procedure is:

  1. Power ON wheel
  2. Disregard tilt value
  3. Hold power-cut button below handlebar
  4. Guild wheel forward to rest on front bumper while holding power-cut button
  5. Press SCV Correction button on phone app
  6. See "Correction succeed" message displayed on phone app
  7. Guild wheel to upright position again while still holding power-cut button
  8. Release power-cut button
  9. Set tilt value - be it default or some other values

Hi King Ma et. al., 

             I basically signed up to the forum to get an answer to one question - but it's a bit urgent.  I'm riding my inmotion v8 in a parade (of about 4 or 5 km. - 2 or 3 miles) this Saturday evening. It's supposed to rain all day Saturday. How bad is riding an inmotion v8 in the rain? What if it's fairly light rain? Temperature will be about 8 degrees celsius, maybe 45 or 50 degrees fahrenheit. Is there any way of protecting it from damage (wrapping it in plastic foil?) Will there be damage? Could it survive just fine? Thank you.

There's definitely a rubber gasket near the handle which helps avoid ingress.  Also the control panel appears to be well isolated from water in general.  The battery pack is also encased in a plastic shell so I would say short of total water immersion, the V8 looks to be fairly well water resistant as far as I can see.

As @Hunka Hunka Burning Love wrote it should go fine, inmotion is known for quite well build wheels. Also quite no EUC is really waterproof. There where imho quite some success reports of all kinds of wheels driven in (espessially ligjt) rain... Some reports were imho with smaller malfunctions (power button?) once in a while.

To be on the safe side you could tinker yourself some rain suit for the V8!?

Try to get the wheel well temperated to the parade! Batteries loose quite some capacitance and current delivering abilities at cold temps! 

Also you're going to drive well above sub zero temps, be prepared of possible "wobbly" behaviour, unexpected tiltbacks. Maybe make a testride at such temps before?
