@cbr-954rr Yeah am curious what the Vega is going to feel like after riding the 6.5in Hoosier for the last almost 1000 miles. I am about to have to change the tire, and I am going to try the 5.5in Hoosier to see what its like. Looking forward to getting everyone together to ride again once the weather is nicer.

RE: Onewheel+ XR order numbers
RE: Nosedive "mitigation" product - beta testers wanted!
@hoovdini these look like a much better solution than previous versions I have seen and would be interested in trying them out. I am #3 on the OW+ mileage leader board and would happy to use Murph the only OW riding dog to help promote your product. (Assuming it is good) Want to make sure to keep Murph safe and happy when riding. I can assure he hates nosedives too.
RE: OW+ XR = One Piece Bumper Covers?
@lidphones This probably a way to get recurring revenue from customers. As the current replaceable bumpers don't ever really need to be replaced. At least I have never needed to replace mine after a couple thousand miles on my OW+. However by combining this with float plates these will most certainly have to be replaced a fairly regular basis.
RE: Speaker Recommendations for use while riding?
@glyph My buddy has one of these, and I think it is too large. I clip it to my belt a lot which wouldn't be possible with this. I settled on the JBL Clip 2 which has been perfect on my needs. Also I purchased some Airpods which are pretty amazing too. The only reason I don't ride with these all the time is that I want people to hear me coming so they get out of the way (I ride in the city). If you are on the fence on Airpods as I was for a long time, I highly recommend them.
RE: Onewheel+ XR order numbers
@cbr-954rr Jamie looks like we will be receiving our boards on the same day again. My order is #20718 and placed an order for a buddy who was in a meeting that is order #20727. Do you plan on keeping both your pluses? Also my first order doesn't list the free fender kit and the second one does. Does yours have this as a line item on yours?
RE: Customizable top speed warning please!
@OneDan So when I first got my Onewheel+ I never felt any pushback for the first 100 - 150 miles and during this time I had quite a few terrible nosedives to the point I considered getting rid of my Onewheel. I thought there was something wrong with the pushback on my onewheel. As I was determined to feel pushback, I switched to Sequoia mode. At first I didn't feel pushback in this mode either riding at speeds that sequoia would normally give you pushback, and then suddenly out of no where the pushback kicked in. It was very obvious and clear, and I am certain it wasn't there before. Then I switched back mission (back before delirium existed) and I immediately noticed pushback in that mode as well. I think once I forced pushback for the first time it finally started working properly. After this day I have not had any nosedives like I was having when I first got the OW. The kind where the front just drops with no warning and just drops you off the front. Now my nosedives have a pushback warning before and most I am able to ride out as it isn't straight nose drops. So my advice is to try to force pushback in sequoia to see if that breaks in the pushback function.
The other thing that I would recommend is to shift your stance backwards a little. Meaning your front foot should never be further forward than the middle of the pad, and the back foot should be middle to back. By having your stance shifted back, it helps prevent nosedives and helps riding / running them out.
RE: Cost of ownership
Cost of ownership is essentially just the initial cost. However I am sure you will want to customize / tinker with it as many of us do. These are strictly optional costs though.
Since I have had my OneWheel + I have put 1250 miles on it and my only cost has been buying a new tire ($65) and having it installed ($20). It takes an incredible amount of abuse and still keeps running like new! I have launched down a flight of stairs, ridden it through countless rain storms, ridden it on the beach through salt water, and sent it somersaulting across the concrete countless times. And no issues!
In contrast, I have an Evolve Carbon GT that requires constant maintenance and tinkering just to keep it running. The Evolve seems to be in the shop as much as I ride it. Where as the Onewheel is so easy and it just works.
To further expand on the cost of ownership of the Onewheel you can just focus on the expenses, you need to also look at the cost savings. Savings for me include, no longer pay for a parking spot at work $120 a month, don't pay for gas to drive to work everyday, I get to work in half to the time, I now drive my car maybe once a month versus everyday. I was putting about 15k miles on my car a year and this year I have put less than 5k.
RE: Clicking once per revolution on heel side turns (Update: serviced & resolved)
@RK_d I think everyone on this forum would agree that the Onewheel is far from perfect and could certainly be improved in many ways. As @thegreck already stated, he and pretty much everyone on this forum is just trying to help each other. @thegreck is probably the most helpful / knowledgeable people on this forum, and I can ensure you the he is not discounting your perspective or thinks the Onewheel is perfect. However in the almost year I have been on this forum, I have seen similar questions / issues as yours on an almost daily basis. Hell, as I said, I was one of them who was ready to get rid of my board due to the inexplicable nosedives at slow speeds. I told you the advice I got that changed everything for me and now I can't imagine being without my onewheel as I ride it everywhere.
So again from what I can see your front foot is too far out on the end of the board which puts too much strain on the board. You could maybe do that if you were a 130lbs kid but you and I clearly are not. Your front foot should be is the middle of the pad or closer to the tire. This and ensuring you are pointing the board versus leaning will make all the difference. Good luck
RE: Future Motion, Past Customer
@lightning this is a personal problem that you over dramatized and is no benefit to the community. If you spent as much time working to resolve your personal problem as you did whining on this forum, you would have a OneWheel by now and would have completely forgot about the little hiccup in placing your order. Even these prepubescent preteen's you are attempting to make fun of would have the sense enough to figure out their personal problem. You instead took the 12 yr old girl approach and just took to whining on a forum to people who can do nothing to help you.
