+1 on getting physical with the car but with bare-hands. If they yell at me I simply say "wanted to make sure you noticed me before passing you"

RE: How do you handle when a car driver doesn't even look to see that they just blocked the sidewalk your on and you almost hit them?
RE: Large circle heel turns still difficult
I find having my feet pointing apart like that is kinda uncomfortable.
forget the board for a moment and instead simply stand comfortably on the floor with your feet in an appropriate distance. whatever is the feet position you feel most comfortable and balanced with.. transfer that to the board. ;-)
BTW. give it time, generally speaking a master is defined as somebody who have spend 10.000 hours on a topic. be it archery, horsemanship or OneWheel. I'm pretty sure you will see significant progress after say 10 hours :-) Just keep doing it.
RE: Taildrag loss of power at 50% battery
gut feeling, a V1 with low miles, it may have been sitting quite a while with a charge on the batteries? that would likely damage the batteries and reduce the C number, which would result in it being 50% voltage but less current than desired = lack of torque
RE: Newbie (Real World!) Beginners Manual.
Why all the bagging on new users :-)
Im 200% Noob, never had the slightest expectation this would be easy-breezy day one. it was wobble-fest. reminded me of the first tries on skateboard decades ago.. no blood so far..
Maybe the beginners manual need to be updated by some of the original OW pilots, and become a PDF on the WiKi ?
Maybe include a in-depth discussion of current ride modes. I find the mellow Sequoia quite nice for my noobness.. little less jittery than Mission. but most people tell me mission is the best for beginners.. sooo?
RE: Wooden backyard pump track for Onewheel
woah. like that it looks like the sections comes apart.
Build a couple skateboard ramps in backyards, biggest problem was getting boards flush the right places.
in retrospect, having a full ramp in the backyard is kinda a bit like a white-elephant. once you have one, everything looks like a elephant party.
Advise, charge admission. :-)
In the unlikely event that I crash and manage to t-bone somebody who may get hurt in the process.
did anyone pick up insurance in case they hurt somebody pane glass window, or simply manage to hurt a innocent bystander?
what is the proper insurance to carry.
RE: What do you say to people who ask, "Can I try it?"
Not everyone is trustworthy with unique and expensive things
That gotta be the worlds most optimistic statement :-)
