I hate to say it but your fender is not good at all.



  • @fruitygreen Yea I have been asked this before. I am fourteen. The Onewheel+ was a really long time of hard work and patience. I do not have a Job but have school so that takes up the majority of my time. Parents aren't going to let me buy it even with my own money if my grades are trash. So I spend a lot of time after school and at home doing homework and stuff. The time I get leftover is for doing chores and sleeping. That leaves very little time to figure out how to build stuff and build it, Much less actually getting the materials. My parents are very academic so naturally I get to go to a difficult school. I would say I have decent ability in making and building things. But Still doesn't leave me with much to do without materials. And I have pretty much no tools. I have my dad's drill 4 bits basic screwdrivers and monkey wrenches. I have nothing to cut stuff with. These are all the reasons I made this topic. It is much too difficult and time consuming or expensive to A. build one from crap materials.B.buy one for 130$ which is a lot at this age..C.buy a fm fender and hope it doesn't break and if it does... Welp thats 85$ of work gone.... Hope this answered your questions. ask me if there are any more.



  • @ansen-french and craft and ride is a lot of money.



  • I believe that Onewheel can make an affordable durable strong fender for not that much. I do not doubt their engineering abilities. I know they can do it.



  • @ansen-french maybe crash less?



  • As long as people are buying them FM would be dumb to sell it for any less. Simple supply and demand.

    You have a better chance of convincing your parents to buy it for you so don't waste your time on this.

    @ansen-french and craft and ride is a lot of money.

    Maybe save up for it?

    @14 I had a blast building things with no prior knowledge. Back then owning a bicycle was like owning a OW today.

    We didn't whine much i recall. Just take what is given.



  • @mrclowny welp if you're right and Future motion does not care about the quality of their product and just money then alright. For the record I would be ok with the price if it were a good product. If Future motion doesn't care that I am not going to buy their product then ok. In the mean time I am just going to buy the better cheaper one...



  • @fruitygreen. The Cheap Very tough fender-
    Advantages-Cheap, strong, and very good for the price. You get what you pay for.
    Disadvantages- less supply. Not very many out there. Still available.

    Future motion fender
    Advantages-More available to the public due to not being custom made. Has a nice Onewheel logo on the top
    Disadvantages-Much more expensive than its worth. Weak. brittle.

    And the much more expensive but really really durable Carbon fiber fender.
    Advantages- Much stronger and tougher. Visually appealing.
    Disadvantages- less affordable.

    I choose the Cheap nice fender. It is within my price range, and is very strong. the two things I want out of a fender.
    Finally. Why did you feel the need to mention That you had fun as a kid building things. And went to the "Back In my day we were happy to have food on our table and not be living in the street. And that was all we needed. Nothing else. We never whined we just were grateful for what we got and that was the end of it." Stereotype. It has nothing to do with the quality problems of the FM fender. It felt like that comment was just something to condescend down on me and treat me like a brat. I am not here to be treated like a brat. No one is. And no one is here to treat people like brats. I am here because I Want FM's fender to be better. I will end it here because it no longer effects me due to the fact that I am going for the cheap good fender. I guess I will just stop wasting my time.

    Wow! I am sorry. Never thought any one would see it that way.

    Apparently the era comparison weren't recognized as i intended.



  • Like doing trick but don't want to ruin your fender? My magnetic Fenders are the way to go.. if it doesn't say "Rambo" it's a copy..



  • @njcustom yea I really like those but just bought the cheap strong fender. |: . The magnetic fender is a a bit outside my budget. Does It pop off easily? Do you use neodymium magnets? I bet Neodymium magnets on the onewheel and the fender would make it stay on very tight.



  • @ansen-french they are very tight .. check this video
