At 40 miles in, my board is making those clicking creaking noises internally in the hub. Same problems as others.
The battery indicator doesn't work.
I get inappropriate warnings about the board about to shut down from regeneration issues.
The ride thing gives me errors, and seems to not work in general. Huge gaps in the data. No idea what is going on there.
Leaderboards could be better, but they seem to work for the most part.
I have reached out to Kyle in personal e-mails early on, and no response. That's not unexpected, really. But disappointing.
I had been planning on getting another ONEWHEEL and putting the Hoosier Tire on there. But I read about another customer who was told the warranty was invalid due to a tire being installed, so I have decided to not do that or anything else after finding out the warranty was not honored for someone swapping a tire.
I would like to be able to have a ONEWHEEL+ with a Hoosier 5.5 tire that doesn't rub that is in warranty. I believe that's not possible right now.
Given that there seems to be something going on with quality control with the clicking sounds, I'm a little bit skittish that I'm going to be left holding the bag if the company can't afford the problems related to this as it seems enough people have this problem that they may be overwhelmed trying to resolve these issues.
I want to continue supporting the company and the community and I love that this is an American team making a product in America and specifically the Bay Area.
I love representing the Bay Area when I am travelling and people ask about this. Most places I go to, nobody has ever seen one of these in real life and they love what they see.
But if anybody were to ask me, "would you recommend getting one" I'm not sure that I would. It seems they are still working out production kinks and it also seems that they are grasping to invalidate the warranty to save their own bacon. Not that I blame them, but it'd be great if these American engineers weren't so obviously in some position that they are unwilling to publicly disclose why people don't know more about what is going on with the company and the production issues.
There should be an announcement about the problems that many are encountering. I love riding my ONEWHEEL, but if I get stuck for $1,500 and/or if my board stops riding properly, as much as I like riding my ONEWHEEL, it may be time to just move on to the Boosted board.
I need reliable transportation, and I wanted to get the most fun ride there is. I think that this ride is fun. But hearing people blaming FM about cutting out at high speed and getting hurt, among other things, has me a little bit concerned about my future on this, what seems to be, dangerous ride.
For now, I am enjoying things, but I worry I may be getting overconfident. My top speed is about 14 mph now. But if I get to where I am doing 20mph frequently, I'm going to be consciously asking myself, "do you trust these guys who made this that some software bug isn't going to put you in the hospital?"
I'm not sure if I do.
Their forum software crashes.
Their iPhone app does not work properly.
People claim that the ONEWHEEL cuts off at 20mph with no explanation.
Sounds like they need some help on their team when it comes to quality controls across the board.
I would like to think "Made in USA" would leave us expecting more.
