@jamesgunter68 man, i remember when i ordered mine on like january 3rd and was constantly on this forum refreshing waiting for my number to be up next. Welcome to the club man
Thanks. Got to ride some today and man it’s fun. I come from a snowboard background but the slopes are still a long drive for me.
Took one good nosedive today but It’s all good.
Order #19235 delivered today
I too like to have my front foot as close to the wheel as possible. I would often feel my heel rubbing the tire without the fender. Now that I have the fender, I find I "lock" my heel against it, and actually use the fender for more control and stability. I can lean and not have my front foot move, as it's held there by the fender. I like to ride duck footed, so the front of my foot is in the middle of the pad, and my heels touch the fender. Good stance if you are learning to ride switch, or fakie.
Hello, I'm Form Austria and my ow+ is not really be stolen. So the story: I have to send my ow+ in for repairs. No great thing, but after paying and have it repaired they send it back. After 3 weeks of the "picked up"at FedEx tracking my board haven't arrived yet.
FedEx said they can't locate the package once it is picked up. So I don't really know why because the truck must have an accident or it hopped off the loading space or I don't know how it is working that a package is going to be lost
Thanks for putting the math up here. I was trying to figure out how much it cost me in electricity to ride my OW 1,000 mile. Figuring 6 miles per charge average (I think that is reasonable) and our local rate of 5.49 cents/kWh (and rounding up to a penny/charge) . It cost me $1.66 in juice to travel 1,000 miles!!!
Same opinion. They will ban the Thing.
Furthermore important is the fact that you motivate Young People in doing the same or even more aggressive. Will not imagine, if one of the many issues with our beloved onewheel happens, when in traffic.
I agree, Looks really cool and certainly a lot of fun, but highly stupid - sorry guys/idiots.
This is why Fuyuan wouldn't deal with GroupGets. The Dunn and Bradstreet stuff was nonsense. They make hoverboard battery chargers and adapter cables for me and never gave me any trouble. They couldn't tell GroupGets that they were already making them for Future Motion. That is the charitable version, hopefully FM didn't tell Fuyuan to kill it because they liked the idea and wanted to do it themselves.
Hi guys, how goes it? If you guys are ever a bit further south I'm in Nottingham? No one near me with a OW so far, been keeping my eyes open for the 3 years I waited for a OW myself after meeting the inventor and having a go. I have 2 weeks experience now on OW+, and I'm truly addicted. But the fun will be more fun if I can float with someone else. I got impatient and bought a used original OW yesterday, arrives morrow. We are gunna have a fun weekend!
Anyway if anyone is a bit near me? If I travel north I'll let you guys know, we frequent the NE coast from time to time, gotta get me on them beaches!
Phoenix?! Sign me up!
Thanks for everyone's replies.
I'm just going to play with the PSI, which is currently 23psi.
If that doesn't work, I'll just keep riding it - hopefully the tire will wear itself into a round(er) shape eventually.
First-time poster with 256 miles on the OW+ here. Not an expert, not a novice. Currently nursing a broken arm due to nosediving due to (I think, it happened FAST) over-acceleration from stop. Still love my board (this is only the second bad wipeout I've had, and the other was hitting an unepected bump at speed), can't wait to get back on, but my post will be geared around that.
Reading the forums, this seems a common issue. Wonder if the app software could let me customize for my weight (180#), to limit board's from-stop acceleration to under that literal tipping point past which where the board can no longer easily keep the nose upright.
Before everyone jumps all over me, no, I don't want everyone's boards performance-limited; just some available performance customization for those of us who are heavier/older/lowered-risk-desiring.
I've seen a few designs and may make my own if I can't buy one soon, but small wheels on the front bumper that might prevent immediate stoppage on nosedive (and thereby give a chance to recover, or at least slow down the board's IMMEDIATE transition from "moving" to "stopped" and attendant kinetic energy transferred into flinging the rider down to concrete like a mousetrap snapped shut) seems like a no-brainer to me (though it could bring other problems, like continued out of control acceleration).
I have a plus that is just over 1 month old, and less than 150 miles. I am just getting really comfortable and learning tricks. I feel like I am 4 weeks into my two month honeymoon with the OW. But she needs to go back to FM for servicing. The hub is clicking, popping and grinding when it's spun by hand with the power off, and sounds really bad when I ride it.
The prospect of being without my new favorite thing to do is terrible. Seems like 1 month turn around time is average at FM. Likely be longer with the holidays, and the shipping crunch that takes place around xmas time.
My question is how do I justify buying a second board when it seems to me that there will be a high probability of my new board having the same issue? Feels to me like I would be rewarding FM with another sale, on a product that may have some reliability issues.
I really love this machine, and am torn as to what to do here. 150 miles of riding and a major service is now required, makes me wonder how often something like this will be taking place in the future....
Has anyone bought a second board for the reasons I am considering?
