RE: Tire change! Here is the tutorial..
I think a treaded tire would be worth trying in some conditions, such as in Canada or Alaska where packed snow and ice are unavoidable. A treaded tire would definitely provided helpful traction for that, just like snow tires for cars do.
However, I agree that the majority of onewheelers would not really benefit from a treaded tire.
RE: Why did the OneWheel suddenly brake at 23 mph? Result = Nosedive
It's important to remember the work the onewheel does when considering its limit for speed. It is constantly working to balance/accelerate according to the rider's position. If that work rate gets so high that it doesn't have enough power to support increased acceleration/balance (such as what might happen at high velocity) then the onewheel cannot effectively work to compensate for the position of the rider anymore.
In this way, if you are leaning forward at maxed potential, then the onewheel does not have enough power to work to accelerate/balance anymore than it already does and since you are leaning forward, you fall that direction as the onewheel doesn't have the power to stop you.
I suspect it is similar to the feeling of stepping on the edge of a cliff with your front foot. The further you lean on it, the more weight the cliff bares until the point where it cannot bare anymore and it just gives way.
I wonder though if they could design a ride mode, or option in the app, that would keep some reserve energy to kick in at max work loads to assist with a more gradual deceleration from the max work load. So rather than just give way like a broken cliff edge, it might be a gentler drop like a partner moving toward you on a teeter totter. It would still be dangerous but perhaps easier to recover from in the moment.
RE: Took my Onewheel on the ultimate road trip, huge mistake now batteries aren't balanced.
Super unfortunate to hear about your battery cells. Sounds like an epic trip though! Where did you start from?
My wife and I spent a month in Patagonia in 2014. Such an amazing place. Wish I had a onewheel to ride then.
RE: Onewheel app regen at 130%???
Ya the cells do appear to be a little out of balance. Consistently at least three seem to read 3.62 while the rest are 3.64 and it's never the same ones. The values jump around. May have something to do with it.
Also the status reads 8192. Checked the manual and the highest number for status in there is 15. Googled it and nothing comes up.
That being said it seems to work fine for the most part. Yesterday I really leaned into it from a cold start and it died on me at 15 mph. I figure I was a little to aggressive for it and it just didn't know what else to do. Picked it up and it was fine. Looking forward to unlocking delerium.
RE: Onewheel app regen at 130%???
Ya that makes sense. However, the only thing that doesn't really fit with that explanation is the regen% continues to rise as long as I leave it plugged in, even after it's fully charged. The usage rises as well. (Was at 40% when regen was at 130%)
Once I reset (turn off/on) then it all goes back to zero fine but the numbers creep up again if I leave it plugged in.
Does anyone else find the same thing happening with their onewheel app?
Onewheel app regen at 130%???
My onewheel app says I have 130% for regen. This makes no sense to me because I thought regen was for indicating how much regenerated energy has occurred. But it couldn't regenerate more energy than it can hold right?
If someone could explain this to me in basic terms it would be much appreciated. Thanks.
