From OW Owners Group on Facebook last year.
I believe 39 was the average age.
A few recent video edits from the OneWheel Boston Riders.
My "glitch" edit from the MinuteMan Trail: https://youtu.be/A81OZsNS-Zw
This past weekend in Watertown, MA: https://youtu.be/rhocSAESMQA
OneWheel has been the cause for me starting to take video and learning how to edit video. It's been a fun ride (see what I did there?).
@mrbrett131060 My OW+ order went from shipping in 4 weeks to arriving in 12. Still worth the wait. No complaints.
@linkfeeney @Ventoriffic @sfCTAC the OW+ and OW+XR have pushback come on around 14-15 mph. Once you push through that, a larger portion of balancing becomes the riders responsibility. These boards were not designed for sustained high speed use. A pebble in the road or being distracted for 1/10 of a second at 23 mph is going to result in a nose dive. You are the limits of the board... and really past them if you ask me.
Not saying don't go past 14-15 mph, but do so knowing it comes with a risk and you are accepting this risk by pushing through pushback. Pushback is there as a warning; at least let it be an educated decision if you keep pushing past it.
I will admit I bought a $199 magnetic "infinitely adjustable" Apple watch band. It's black stainless... and allows me to move the way up my arm and out of the way.
I actually keep my watch in theater mode all the time, so I have to touch the screen for it turn on, just a personal preference but makes it easier to not accidentally touch the screen.
You can also invert the screen and put the dial/button away from your wrist instead. This is just one more step to reduce hitting things by accident.
The OW is the reason I bought a watch... haha. It works great. Need your phone though. Android has some watches that can run the app by themselves, Apple does not.
My iPhone will be connected to the watch, board and BT speaker all day without any issues.
@redboyjan I'm in like 3 private groups on FB... one for OneWheel's. No politics, no spam, no pictures of peoples food, haha.
My wife looked at my phone the other night and was amazed that my feed is all... things I'm actually interested in. You should make a fake email and sign up!
OWOG (OneWheel Owner's Group) is awesome. A little drama here and there but a great vibe and community overall.
People keep complaining about their shipping dates moving have a week but I'd rather get a solid board out of the box than have to send mine back on day 2.
@danner sorry your board is heading back but I'm hoping these week one issues end up making the board better as a whole for the community.
A shoulder bolt or a metal sleeve in the plastic simplifies the situation, that way you can crank it down, keep it snug, no worry of over-tightening or having the bolt loosen up from low torque. It's also much easier for people to remove the bolts without loctite (for cleaning etc.)
You recommending a shoulder bolt just so it bottoms out and if sized correctly can't over clamp the plastic fender?
Look up some videos by @slydogstroh on YouTube... his fenders have been through a lot.
Chris Richardson makes very detailed and technical videos for just about everything:
So I’m at hour 48 for a balance charge per FM’s recommendation instead of sending my board in. I don’t have voltage plots or function of time data but simply laid out:
30 min, 12 hours, 24 hours, 36 hours into charge I’d have the following, all cells at 3.62V and one at 3.60 and one at 3.64V. The cells at these levels would move around with time as it was charging. Today after work is the first time (48 hours in) that all cells are balanced and equal at 3.62V. I know this isn’t hard evidence but I’m also not the first person to go through this.
@makermarc if your cells balance out on their own, agree that there is no benefit for you to do a long charge cycle.
So the 20 minute charge essentially gets your the flat line ~80-90% of the charge. The second 10-20 minutes is to get you to 100%.
I'm no expert but I believe FM was quoting the majority of the battery is charged in 20 minutes and it's definitely ridable. if you watch your cell voltage during charging you'll see it charges a good bit quickly but then takes a long time to finish.
