Official delay - end of month, early April new expected pioneer delivery



  • I don't get what part the motor would need.... they come pre assembled from the manufacture.



  • @Franky I'm just guessing, but what doesn't add up to me is:

    1. the motors would come assembled (I would expect)

    2. the delivery has paused for a couple of weeks now, but they continued pushing the 'now being delivered' sales and marketing line. Sounds like last push to get a volume threshold discount, but even if not, disingenuous knowing the part would delay things.

    Regardless, I'm not that salty because I want them to do well and keep making awesome products.

    One of the screws needed to attach it was a flathead instead of Phillips and nobody likes those things.



  • So, 3 days ago:
    "...To the best of our knowledge, it looks like Founding Members' boards will be shipping in late March up to early April...."

    Then a day or so later:
    "...To the best of our knowledge, it looks like Founding Members' boards will be shipped by mid April and Gold Members will be shipped right after in April...."

    What a difference a day makes



  • @OriginalEric I think the intent is the same timeline between both emails, but aimed at two (sequential) groups.

    The first email was sent to Founders. It indicates the plan is late March through early April - which implies completion of all Founders orders by mid April.

    The second email is directed at Gold - so the perspective shifts to mid April at the earliest (since that is when they estimate Founders' orders will be complete).

    That seems sensible--I hope you are correct sir. I should work on being a bit less of a pessimist I suppose.



  • @OriginalEric It's supported by their use of "shipping" in the first email, and "shipped" (past tense - i.e., complete) in the second email.

    Of course, we won't know for now if he estimates are accurate - just that they intended the same estimate in comm's to both groups.



  • The good news in all this is that the first batch that went out is getting excellent reviews.
    V1 had some bugs to clean out and FM was on top of their game.
    The + seems like they hit the nail on the head the first time around.
    Probably very little refinement will be needed going forward.



  • @iiikz yeah, I get it. Reading is fundamental... along with a touch of optimism. Have an awesome day sir!



  • @gbones2692 this is crazy



  • So Im guessing Silver members are now pushed to May...FML!



  • They really need to offer incentives at least quicker shipping upgrades to people who are waiting a month + from promised ship date. I don't understand how their answer changes to 2-4 week + lead times within 24 hours I was promised my board will ship out on the 28th like 3 times.... the day after the 28th they told me it's going to be a month delay.. like wtf.... Do they plan on building the boards in one day? How the hell would you not know that my board which is in the 500's will not ship on the 28th when I ask you on the 27th..... Something fishy going on here, I don't buy the "part for the motor" deal I work on electric motors for a living what part of the motor could possibly not meet their standards they come preassembled? Is it like a shaft key? Hell I'll manufacture 500 shaft keys and ship it to them within 2 days. Motors are made in China, Fenders are made in china they are making good money on these boards so anyone who thinks they are turning a small profit on these things are just naive. Take the fender as an example and you will realize their markup... Fender is $85.00 their cost is probably $2-6.00 dollars molded plastic made in china..



  • @s2kboy
    I think they just got so swamped that they could not give the small shipping service&updates they hoped and just sent out some general ones trying to cover it all...if you ask me They should have ramped up their production and personell before doing a worldwide release of an upgrade of such an succesfull product.

    But be happy count your blessings;)...
    i don't even dare to think about placing an order or owning 1 in general this year, living in the Netherlands...after all these delays etc
    at least You will be cruising the new version THIS summer...hopefully!;)
    enjoy



  • @timvdp I am resting easy but I'm almost certain they will push this second delay even further out.



  • @s2kboy
    probably....CRAP!!:(



  • @Da-Aviator I've been called worse , lol



  • I was told 2-3 weeks



  • OW told me yesterday that my board shipment should be "confirmed" next week:

    "Hi Louis,

    We will make sure your board ships with the next batch! You can expect confirmation next week.

    Cheers,
    Carly"



  • @loudeezy- I thought every order up to 715x has shipped... If you're 708x, this implies that the shipping has not followed order number. Is this correct? -jdj



  • I just got shipping confirmation stating that my Gold Edition OneWheel + is on the way. I tracked it and it has left Future Motion and will be in the panhandle of Florida on Tuesday the 21st! Finally! I was order #80XX.
