What's your number of Onewheel sightings to date? Meeting up doesn't count.



  • So I wanted to see if anyone has ever seen a OneWheel rider while they were riding their OW or driving. People you were meeting to ride with doesn't count! So how many total? For me its 3 encounters. One while driving and I stopped the guy to say hello. One while I was riding with two of my friends in Venice and we saw a third guy. Lastly, today I saw @TonyGDTLA at a parade. We both had our OW and he spotted me and said hello. Weirdest thing as he hit me up to ride but I had plans to go to the parade. Turns out we had the same plans. Crazy... In a city as big as LA. So whats your number?



  • Zero. Other than online, I've never seen another onewheel other than mine. Besides that I've never met a single person who knew of onewheel before seeing mine.



  • @MichaelW Nope, never. I've run into a few people who had seen it on the internet (mainly from Casey Neistat's vlog) but most people have never seen one before either. Hopefully FM's $32M expansion will include some good marketing people, so we'll start seeing more around and people will stop staring at us like we just landed on their planet.



  • I ran into 2 other Onewheelers while riding around Stanley Park in Vancouver...one of them saI'd he's Kyle's cousin... and just got a second board for his friend off Craigslist for $950. I went home, looked up the post on Craigslist and cried for missing out on such a sweet deal (it was brand new in box...lady bought it for her son and he didn't want to try it...).



  • @MichaelW you are the first person with a one wheel I've seen in L.A.



  • @TonyGDTLA I'm in LA too. let's get a meetup going?



  • I ran into a guy with one at the climbing gym in Sunnyvale. Rode about 10ft in the parking lot and was sold. Received mine this weekend.



  • Zero. So far...



  • I have not seen any in the city of Chicago and people seemed very confused on what it is.



  • @Franky ditto - unless you count reflections :p



  • just got mine today. Im also in LA .... Lets ride.....



  • @aris lets do it!



  • In Belgium, and never seen another one, or met people that already knew about the OW...



  • @Polle you are apart of the future!



  • @TonyGDTLA
    We ride the future ;-)



  • Only one sighting for me even though I drive through FM's vicinity daily. My wife saw a dude riding one in the area once also but I wasn't with her so who knows if the same guy. Probably not though so 1-2 here.



  • @TonyGDTLA @pilot24 I live in the arts district. it's a great place to ride as there are a ton of empty roads, and plenty of atmosphere. not only that, but tons of natural ramps, and fun obstacles. let me know if you come this way.



  • @aris dude! Sweet! I live in historic core. Spring between 5th and 6th.



  • She needs to whip him for that :0)
