Can we truly trust a business when they frequently say "it's the consumer's fault"? That is the first defense an entity will use to shift responsibility.
We must not forget that there was a stoppage in production TWICE for our Onewheel Plus. Just maybe they did not properly address the issues before shipping to us. Maybe something on the OW+ isn't calibrated correctly for the average rider.
I had a bad nose dive on day 1 in Sequoia mode and I can attribute that specific fall to the learning curve, but last week my board threw me off while riding in my building's garage doing about 5mph with about 60+ miles on it.
I currently have battery issues (no beach riding here), in which I can't charge the OW+ (red light on the charger doesn't come on) and the battery level isn't visible to the app. I'm waiting for Future Motion to send me the UPS label to send it back. I just don't want to be the first person, and anyone else, to be killed because the OW+ did a nosedive into traffic!
But if you don't want to push the speed and prefer more stability, plus seems like the way to go.
I think that's what does it for me and the majority of riders.
I'm always amazed by the fact I'm riding on a single wheel with an ultra smooth ride.
There's always gonna be the Fabuz's and Slydogstrohs who'll defy the law of physics.
Gorge Performance mailed me and said they have ow+ in stock:
"The one wheel + is in! We have a limited number but you can put a hold on one with a $200 deposit.
We are here 10-8pm on weekdays and 10-7pm Saturdays."
I ride in full leather riding gear only the best of the best use it this is the stuff the moto gp riders wear, I have a full face riding helmet with a Seana built in so when I'm cruising at 20mph I can hear my buddies. Nope I just wear a protec helmet and if I'm feeling like I wanna crash that day I wear jeans but I normally ride in a shortsleeve shirt board shorts and a helmet, I cracked my last one in half... gnarly crash I don't think my elbow will heal especially when I average one big crash a week and big meaning hitting a stupid green sewer things in the middle of the grass or like a sprinkler box during a night ride, expect the unexpected. But dude your gonna get banged up if you have fun, but if just learning only attempt the 10 stair first never go for the 15 first ;-) no don't do either...
Sometimes rocks get stuck and it will make a noise, usually more with the fender so you can stop quicker, usually going backwards for a quick second will get it out and than you just keep going, one time I got like 20 wood chips stuck in my fender and that's the only time I had to take the fender off but it was wet and they got all clumped together and got jammed in my fender, I was only a little while from home and got the Allen key to take it off but that's only once after like 6 months riding and I ride in wood chips a lot I wouldn't worry about rocks unless you ride listening to music... but I normally hear it and just reverse, no biggie after a mile of riding the time looks good as new.
I'm not totally sure, I had to send it back last winter because the light indicator was acting weird, saying it wasn't charged when it was. They fixed it but it reset the stats on my app. Not many though, under 100 for sure.
@PowerWheel5000 I mean stiff as in the ride mode.. mine doesn't creak at all. I had the tail drop a few times but it stopped.. not sure what that was all about.. it hasn't happened in over 100 miles.. when I go over bumps it stays stiff and doesn't flop around like the v1
The magnets in the motor are gripping harder then the V1 which means harder fails.. when the magnets can no longer hold your weight you get nose/tail drops.. it's going to be more drastic then the V1 Because it's holding tighter..
