I guess these are comments and not questions, but I'm always surprised when I hear someone say something about the Onewheel to me that I haven't already heard a million times.
A woman walking on a sidewalk when I passed by on the street first said, "Well that's cool." Then yelled out, "I like your mode of transportation!"
Then when I was riding around on a dirt pump track in San Diego, I did a 180 revert and nearly wiped out, but managed to pull it off and look like I meant to do that. A kid riding by on a BMX said, "Dem skillz!"
They have emailed me every time I email FM. It usually takes a couple days for them. As far as shipping they have clarified to me since I ordered first day it would ship end of February. And like others have said on this thread the earlier you bought the closer to end of February yours will ship. Today's orders prob won't ship til end of April or may unless they catch up with demand earlier.
@dalisdair I have done that once or twice so maybe that happened. Given its been 34-40 degrees max so far when riding in WI since I got it 3 weeks ago I've had to reboot to get every bit of 2.5 mi. Cant wait to actually ride 6 miles per charge!
I know it showed when I first used the powheel but not last few times when I was looking. Guess I'll have to try and not sap it every time I ride and see if it holds. Thanks for sharing!
@thegreck - first, I totally agree that under normal riding most peoples feet move around a bit and one(or both, oh no) of the sensors may go off from that. My theory was that you would ride with the intention of testing the sensors, so get your feet into a decent position and leave them there. Ride fast, slow, go over a few bumps. Basically riding with the intention of keeping your feet firmly on the sensors and then check to see if they behaved the way you thought. If you start to see abnormalities then you could look into replacing pads instead of just replacing them every X amount of time. For all we know the pads on the board are fine and they could be replaced with a new defective part causing a problem instead of solving one.
My thinking was that over .5 MPH only one sensor is required to keep the OW alive. If you could catch one doing things that seemed odd you could replace the pad before you run into a situation where one sensor is intermittently failing and the other turns off from leaning/moving feet.
And yes I agree that its hard to know if the senor turned off because of a failure or because of movement but if you did the test a few times, paying attention to your feet being on the sensors a pattern may be able to be seen.
Honestly I've never had an issue with sensors my self, I was just asking cause of what i read in another tread.
I'm on my third tire and I changed them myself. I don't want my odometer reset. That's one of the things I love about OWbuddy. Vega got 1060 miles, the Hoosier slick got 528 miles and my current tire will probably get close to what the Vega did..
