So I can officially report to you that... riding through airport....Uh... good luck with that and...
get on airplane. Do a search and the answer is.... well maybe.
However, I can also officially report that I have the people that can fix this for future motion. And I actually finally got a hold of them to tell them that. Waiting on a phone call back to see if they want to hire them. Without going into to much detail i have been doing this sort of thing for a living for 18 years. Currently i am working inside of government, but i have a couple of friends that 1 just left one of the most powerful people in DC and another who left a senior post at the TSA, so I was going to reccomend they hire them work something out. And I guarantee its way cheaper than whatever high priced DC law firm they come up with. Cause, I know what I'm doing :)
Of course probably would have been even cheaper if they listened to me last year.. . But, hey.... that's their fault.
Saw this in either OW forum or the OW owners group page on FB, but it is absolutely perfect for transporting your OW/ presumably for the OW+ as well if it is the same length. I plan on using as incognito cover while I store my Wheel in my car while I'm at work.
Thanks to the person who posted about this bag originally.
I was wondering if someone could post, a video or some before / after photos, because i dont' think i have seen them of exactly how much "sanding down" of the casings has to be done to give this tire its proper space?
I'm all about the mods. I'm actually really not afraid of much, I've taken apart the basic components of it already, i mean, even if you over sand it, fixing it to re-waterproof shouldn't be that huge of a deal, its just a small plastic box. And the footpads are 1 cheap and 2 easily modable. But I just kind of want a better understanding of how much material is being removed to accomidate the tire....
If there was room for the tire. I'd have done the switch already. I love off-roading and I wheelslip constantly on grass.
i had both of my brothers testride my modified board yesterday, and both said it is a major improvement that changes the agility a lot!
both immediatly noticed a big difference during the first few meters resulting out of the pads and the new tire.
one of them already has a board, which he is now going to modify in a simillar way (hoosier tire already ordered yesterday), the other one at least said that the feeling that he initially did not like at Onewheels is now gone, bacause it now behaves more intuitive/agile in the curves.
@willcapellaro Totally agree, and I've thought about this many times. I don't like elevated mode because all it does is lift the nose the entire ride, when the only time you need it is going UPhill, not when you're going downhill or on straightaways. To me, it's extremely uncomfortable to ride with the nose up, especially when going downhill when you need it to be doing the opposite.
However, I think to accomplish this it would take massive reworking of the electronics as well as putting sensors on the underside of the deck, where they're sure to be damaged almost immediately. But hopefully they're working on figuring this one out!
