My 5.5" wide Hoosier D20 compound rubber loves the cold and stays very pliable down below -20C here in Colorado. Some run the Vega in the cold. I do not. Remember that sidewall rubber is just a protective skin and should not affect performance at the low pressures and speed we run on the Onewheel. Go carts are a different story.
@at_onewheeler Hi everybody,
This is really annoying from FM that they impose we don't "touch a screw" as we have issues with our OW's and to be obliged to send/seperate from it for so (seemly) little things.
In this case of noise, couldn't it be a problem of axles' alloy quality that has been prematurely worn down?
The FMs' attitude asking not to touch anything on our boards could stem from them not willing we discover where materials come from or how they're made?
Many comments I read on this forum make me think FM is not so honest and don't deserve to get all the money we give them for such a quality's product.
They know they have a "gold mine" with the OW and us as addicts, and want to preserve their incomes without spending for the quality we're waiting for.
I don't pretend it's the truth but a possibility and that's a bad feeling.
Wish I mistake ;-)
@shaka-wheeler : Pushback is related to how hard the motor has to work. Speed is only one of the many factors than can result in higher motor load. The OW+ having a more powerful motor, it makes sense pushback happens later...
I rode my OW+ alongside road signs that tell you how fast you drive: it was always pretty much bang on. More tests needed. :)
I'm afraid GPS speed is not accurate enough to test the board speedometer, unless perhaps in very specific conditions?
Granted she can't keep up with speed, but I would gladly trade a few mphs for longer range.
Then do just that. :)
The OW+ motor is 750W, but it only consumes what you command it to (look at the joint speed/power graph in the leaderboard). Thus it won't consume more than the v1's 500W motor, unless of course you push it above v1 specs (acceleration and speed wise).
Seems to me like you're puzzled drinking twice as much from the same bottle empties it twice faster... ;)
