Can we NOT turn this forum into your personal punching-bag for hating on Future Motion?
I'm starting to see a lot of people :
- CONSTANTLY BRINGING UP F'M's PAST MISTAKES
- More bitching
I've really really REALLY had enough of it.
Every company has their faults, every company has their flaws, but goddamn, forumers can turn into the most OVER AGGRAVATING DELUSIONAL RETARDS whenever people start piling on this small company from Santa Cruz. And this happens in ANY forum online.
ENOUGH. I am NOT gonna tolerate that shit spreading to these cool, super chill forums.
If you want to BITCH SO HARD, please take it to fucking Gizmodo/Buzzfeed/FakeNewsSite/whatfucking-ever. There's plenty of sites out there for internet haters. Utilize them and leave us Wheelers alone!
This community should be about chilling the fuck out and not stressing the creators of our boards. We want them to get it right! We don't want to pile on them and make the forums become their liability.
Are you pissed off that the OneWheel+ may not make it in time?
I have a solution : GET A REFUND, STFU.
This is going to be a levelheaded and reasonable thread.
HeHe...what # are you BTW???
You just bitched about bitching on the same forum.
leave your micro agressions at home for your family to enjoy, not us.... hypocrite :)
So your argument is that us posting on this forum is stressing out employees at Future Motion? Wouldn't they need to participate on the forums for that to happen?
Or some cool mods....
Or some cool videos of cool mods already done ... I'm looking at you @no
There is no code of conduct on the internet, and if this forum had a rule against bitching I wouldn't be here. Bitching is a great way to let off some steam. I try to bitch at least twice a day even if it's about something totally benign just to work on my cunning smackdowns.
@braswell I think you might have just wandered into a knife fight with a poodle. Maybe you were shooting to post in the modifications thread?
@sidebox haha I'm just here passing the time till the new app is released :)
@braswell working on some new stuff my dude. Gotta be patient though, this damn day job is really cutting into my OW time!
Not offense but this thread is useless...
Hate draws the hate...
Stop talking guys, I have a tip for your waiting game:
A pinch of MrMccosker,slydogsthro & fabuz's video three times a day,morning, noon and night...and when you're trolling like my friend @braswell , add some youporn content video to relieve your urges !
It works! I swear!
@RogueStar All kiding aside bro, there's a ton of amazing guys here: @thegreck @MichaelW @jeffmccosker @slydogstroh @sidebox @njcustom @braswell , YOU and more!
So forget the bad and enjoy the community!
I will bitch about OneWheels
I will bitch about cold
I will bitch about sunshine
and about growing old
I will bitch about everything,
inside and out
You will find there is nothing
I can't bitch about.
@RogueStar this feels like bait but I'll sound off anyway. Don't try to take my bitch, dude. If the complaints are legitimate, who are you to put a cap on it. It's the same frustration FM feels but they need to hear it. And when they're not very transparent or even prompt when addressing an invested customer's concerns, the people need a place to vent. It should be on you to tune out. This isn't YOUR forum.
I agree with him... I'm tired all the complaining .... shut up an wait! Where all in it together ... I waited for the first board for six months ill wait two months Easy... onewheel is fucking sick!
@dcosmos Agreed, no one held a gun to FM's head while shoving $1,500 in their pocket demanding a February ship date. I know I didn't force them to attend CES promoting the Shit out of a new board they clearly had no fucking clue how to scale up in their production. But since they are "new" and "cool" let's give them a pass on this stuff...what's the excuse for not ATLEAST sending the fenders for founding members immediately? NONE, other than they are cash strapped and can't afford to pay attention! Although I'm sure some fanboy is going to find a reason to defend their piss poor business practices so think of it this way- assuming you're employed- your boss comes to you and says, "you've done a great job, and your work is top notch" now about your bonus...we should get that to you in a few months or so...a few months goes by and this is now a moving target. You get the point. I didn't finance my board. I paid in full, and they knew the day the preorder started they would fall short. Yes, they sent out a few boards in February so they could take a victory lap...but crickets since then. If you don't want people bitching on this forum I suggest you contact FM and ask them to stop overpromising and underdelivering!
It is not like we are asking for much. Just a little communication. I understand they are a small company so I took the 5 mins to draft an email that would provide information so know what happened to our $1500.

Everyone at Future Motion
OK just so there is no confusion... THIS IS A SAMPLE TEMPLATE FOR FUTURE MOTION TO FILL IN THE ACTUAL FACTS TO PROVIDE THEIR CUSTOMERS WITH SOME INFORMATION ON WHAT HAPPENED TO THEIR $1500 . PLEASE DO NOT THINK THAT THESE DATES ETC ARE ANY WHERE CLOSE TO BEING FACTUAL!!!
Guys give them a break..They had these issues the first go around with v1. Its not like you can learn from mistakes easily. (Insert comment about FM being new company even though they're not) or (comment give them a break cuz the one wheel is cool and you're mean)
