Msuper V3S full case needed... after my fall.


Recommended Posts

Full face helmet or one with a chin bar might be on the list too especially if you're a speed demon.  :blink:

Well, I fell for the 2nd time in almost 2 years and I'm ok, thanks to full gear, bike jacket etc. I did not hear the alarm because of the noise from cars around. The cut out didn't happen because of speed but due rough pavement, was smooth at one point and than few patches, bumps and Msuper v3s couldn't hold me upright. It was in the evening and street lights were not enough to see.

Couple of things I wanna ask or discuss: my face hit my left arm and thats what protected my face from major injury I think (Ive mentally practiced that if I would to fall, arms go in front of me at slight angle, with full gear my arms would take most impact and protect my face).

Talking with a friend about full face helmet he brought very good point, if you hit face first, there would be major strain on your neck or worse. The front of full face helmet extends forward a lot and would apply major pressure on you neck. 

170lbs., Msuper V3S 1300 battery, had about 80% when left for 15km/ 9.5miles. speed around 45km/h or 28 mph (I have gone 53km/h or 33 mph before).

Now I need full case, front light and handle? where can it be ordered? thanks.

Wow, that's very dramatic @yourtoys7! Glad that you are basically OK.

Were you able to finish your ride, or was the wheel damaged?

Your experience just confirms my desire not to ride fast unless I have great visibility, and to always slow down as I approach bumps, uneven pavement, etc. It's a good lessons learned, and I think you for posting this.

Regarding the helmet, your post comes at a good time. I keep going back-and-forth, trying to decide whether I want to upgrade to a full-face helmet. Now I have even more doubts. :confused1:

Take care

Whoops!  I was too dazed and shocked by the blood and injuries!  :blink:

Might be that the Bluetooth daughter board needs to be reseated and Kafuter RTV'd (silicone secured).

Guys thanks for all the info. and recommendation. This post was to share another user error and Not Gotway/ machine malfunction. 

Over the winter here I will replace the case and fix what ever else needed. My app will not connect, telling me to turn Bluetooth on while being on, maybe something got damaged inside.

For sure I will be going much slower... somehow this fall made me realize how fast things can go wrong. I feel seriously blessed to walk away from this as I have. Will be looking into full face helmet for sure. 

 

@Marty Backe    Yes, I did ride home from there about 7km., I turned the wheel back on, it balanced, but I did ride much slower back.

@litewave I'll be looking into full face for sure.

@WARPed1701D It was more a conversation because we normally fall face forward and he just pointed that out, I thought of seeing other peoples opinion as well. The wheel still works, so looks no damage besides body, will open the wheel tomorrow to look further. For now, I'm not able to connect to the app. "turn on Bluetooth", but it is on.

@Smoother yes, completely agree.

@who_the thanks for the links, will be looking for full face.

 

 

The Bluetooth module is only secured by some silicon to one of the capacitors. It's a very poor physical connection. With that violent crash I'm going to guess that it got knocked loose. Good luck with your repairs.

Most important is that you are OK!

Yep.

If you really have no other injuries, lucky!

Get well soon! Parts you might get at ewheels.com, speedyfeet, or aliexpress/green travelling.

Yep.

I think you should slow down a little with your msuper. 50km/h is too much as a baseline max speed, apparently.:efee47c9c8:

UPDATE: I wiggled usb lightly and it works now :), usb attached to brown cylinder thing (it wiggles) the one beside it is firm, can I use silicone between cylinders to hold them together?

  Left side took the heat as I was thinking I shifted my body to the right a little to take impact on left side. Few screws are gone/ broke off, inside panel cracked (see photo). Other wise the case seems ok, I might just leave it as is.... "Will be reminder what happens when you go Fast"   I'll cover the front. 

If I do need to ride in the evening in the future I'll be going much slower and with much brighter hand held flashlight.

Any comments/ recommendations are welcome. If you see something that I should check/ pay attention to from pic. let me know...

That's a capacitor. Yes, using silicon is OK.

I was thinking that if you don't care about the wheel looking pretty that you could probably patch it up well enough to ride.

Have you seen this thread, where @FULspeed is upgrading his MSuper light to the Tesla light (which is amazingly bright and very useful for riding 20-mph in total darkness). Maybe follow along and if it works for him that may be a worthwhile upgrade.

@KingSong69   Thank you, capacitors are secured/ connected, the second one only moves a little because usb module wiggles a little (white silicone cracked/ separated). I will add more silicone on the Bluetooth module connection and between both capacitors. 

@Marty Backe  At this point I dont think I care how it looks, I will look into that thread about the light. Time for diy mods :)

That crack in the inner case under the battery could possibly be fixed using a plastic welder kit.  Perhaps a good bead of silicone RTV would be enough, though.  Since opening the case, were you able to get the trolley handle working?  The case looks good enough to ride, maybe drill some holes and zip tie the gap closed.

If you knew you were crashing tomorrow then would you wear one?

I've also re energised MY search for the perfect EUC helmet.  Don't want to go full M/C helmet, basic bicycle helmet doesn't protect face, Mountain bike down hill DOES have a very sticky outy chin guard which might actually give credence to the spine injury theory.  What to do, what to do.  Football helmet? ice hockey helmet? air soft helmet?  :crying:

I went with this exact model. It's pretty cheap too.
