The waiting game



  • I got mine in about 11 weeks. It's hard to wait but it's totally worth it. I wish they would change the advertised time to 8-12 weeks. Would be much more reliable.



  • whats the hardware for you guys that recently got them?

    Anyway, my hardware shows 100.

    whats setting do you guys ride on mostly? :neckbeard:

    Dont hate but i got mine luckily withing a few days or discovering OW used with minor scratches but like new...



  • @riofiume Yes, it was about 10 weeks. I'm so glad I don't have to go through that waiting game again!



  • Hi @polle, @laurentdiving,

    Also from Belgium. I would looove to give the onewheel a try before buying.

    If you're up for that, let me know. I'm based in Mechelen.

    Cheers.



  • Ordered mine in March paying $500. It went "in production" about April 13th and the collected the rest of the money saying I would get shipping notification "in a few weeks." Promised a very specific "week of June 15th" that passed, recently again promised "end of June" that passed. You can't tell me that people ordering since mid March have not gotten their product. When they've got your money and they aren't true to their word it is very hard to be a happy or understanding customer.



  • Wait, you ordered in March and still didn't get it? Really hope they are producing faster now...



  • @JWhite It's the same for everyone that ordered when you did. I experienced the same thing, and I also felt like everyone had their board but me. I sent some not so nice emails since I was so frustrated. I look back now and laugh at how frustrated I got. You will have your board soon even though it feels like forever, and it will be worth it.



  • Hi @bertvh ,

    I am also a Belgian 'waiter', I ordered a OW end of May, I was hoping to be riding end of August. After reading this thread, I'd better start taking some Zen courses. ;-)

    I work in Mechelen some days in the week, so you might give it a bit of a try.

    But take care, if you order only then, you will have to wait while already being addicted...



  • How do you belgian or European guys took care for the customs taxes for a good outside from Europe ? Any idea on the added cost ? Thanks

    I have the same question. I'm from Croatia and my OW is about to come, I expect customs and taxes to be around $450-500. Hope it'll worth it -.-
    Maybe someone from EU knows the exact cost?



  • Hi everyone, I ordered mine on April 2 and got an email notice on July 7 that it had shipped (with expected delivery by UPS to Texas scheduled for July 13). So, from order to delivery, it will have taken just under 15 weeks.



  • @misdirects Yikes!!!



  • @misdirects Wow... You will love it though... Enjoy :)



  • @ ridule, i got it since yesterday and i had to pay 431 euros for duties..
    BUT it s so coooool



  • My OneWheel came yesterday. It is a blast ... a lot like snowboarding (but in Houston). Ordering a second one today ... It will be great to go out on a ride with my son.

    In summary, ordered March 23rd, delivered July 13.



  • woohoow!! Also a proud owner of a Onewheel since today!
    My head is floating and my legs riding :)



  • Huh my OW came today and I can't get enough of it. That thing is a beast, it push up the hill (steep hill) so easily, I didn't expect that it has so much power in that little tire :)

    @futuremotion thank you for such a good product -o-

    Btw 9 weeks of waiting, 3 days shipping from USA to Croatia 😮, and 3 days of customs declaration 😡😤 560€ duties💥



  • Yeah, to Belgium the duties/taxes were €412, was a bit shocked!



  • Looks like a new wait time is 4-6 weeks according to onewheels purchase page.



  • That's awesome news. I'm 2 weeks in.
