How is no one yet posting about the new PINT launch?
Wow man - I hope your recovery is going well ! I'm a 47 yr old beat up skater myself. The onewheel is so great tho as you describe - carving on pavement, enjoying the mellow ride/ sessions.
I do wonder how the slightly shorter deck length will impact stability? I have tiny feet so the width isnt a thing for me personally... but it seems like it would be more prone to bails from leaning fwd... idk.
Did you get any estimate on delivery date? I'd hope quickly on day 1 order....
Also , when you get it , can you post about the feel of the ride vs your full size board? That would be sick! ( and helpful )
...only 4 lbs lighter than the XR , so it seems like very little compromise ( 2.5"" length, 4 lbs weight, .75" smaller tire ) here to get in at the lower price point ? Very exciting....
That figures about the fender..I never could understand the concept of this board without a fender . Who would want dirt and rocks flying up there face? I just happened to have an extra one for my V1. I guess initially they come with one but who knows about later ??? Wonder whats next ? Maybe an XR Especial Whamy Jammy ? Thanks for the info..

85 miles and stopping my XR is still an awkward and an issue for me (and it only seems be a problem when I'm surrounded my people) ;)
So I would love a lean back switch, but only if it was an option. I love the ability to ride backwards to much to give up that option...

@OneDan lean back/stop sounds like trouble in the making to me. that will remove the ability to float to and fro. I see the potential for unintended stops, when shifting your balance. but we'll see how that works out.

@Enterusername probably but it will look like shit!🤪
It might be interesting to see how it works. Its just an option though. Sounds like they understand that dismounting can be challenging for some people and they are trying to make it more user friendly. I'm all for making things easier. Don't feel bad, so far the only I have fallen (2 years , 2nd battery and tire about 600mi) ...so far is near stop lights where a bunch folks are already looking at me like I'm nut's. Hey look look at that old guy idiot ....bam...I don't disappoint. 2am riding solves that problem. LOL I plan on learing how to dismount better someday...maybe .

Yes the lean back to stop can be turned off!

For the record, my note on the Simplestop feature:
Also, the lean back stop feature seems like something that could be added to the + and XR firmware as an option.
And now we know it's an option on the Pint, so hopefully they'll bring it back to the other boards.

Have you ever tried pivoting on your heel and swinging your foot to one side as opposed to lifting your heel and getting on your toes? I actually prefer to dismount this way and find it much “cooler” looking than the dancer pose. Try it and let me know. @Enterusername
Yes I have tried different ways like you say but I didn't practice enough. I was able to get it done sometimes but not 100%. I do plan to practice dismounts and riding backwards more once my chest bone heals back together. May be a few more months. Thanks for the advice though.
I'm really glad I got to play with these toys before I got to old.
Good luck with the new board Onewheel .
FM blocked and banned Jimmy Chang and Slydog, for their comments?
That’s got to be one of the DUMBEST PR moves I’ve ever seen a business take...

What did they say?
Slydog: “A toy...it’s a toy!”
Jimmy: “That was a lot of hype. For that.”
This company is shooting itself in the foot...
Seems like they need some competition to get them to start behaving properly...

I'll be interested to see if it has a smaller battery, i.e. can be carried on aircraft with the under 99mAh rule.
Diff port. Not xlr...

They need places for folks to try out the new product
I’d regret selling my Plus and not keeping it for the kids, but I want to know how the pint works/feels before I drop another grand
Stuff is too expensive to buy sight unseen
I spoke to CS at Future Motion - the new stopping mechanism can be turned off ( thru the app) as an option. I mentioned the forum was already hoping for this to be a thin for the XR as well... she just laughed and said " we are constantly learning and improving our technology" .

@greengorilla Should've said "seriously though, when can we get it?".
