Your Pint Shipping Date



  • @a_onekatie said in Your Pint Shipping Date:

    @Daymos
    A.) I want my pint to look as cool as your rendering!
    B.) I know, major bummer that FM ships the rail guards folded in half! Lay them out over night and they should flatten back down a bit before you attempt to apply them.
    C.) They sent my 3D Model Board in June as an apology gift when they announced the first round of shipping delays. I received it along with a hand written note of apology. Did they not send you the same package?

    Agreed on item A. Very cool render @Daymos ....

    I see you hit 14.1 on top speed, did you get some pushback? That is the speed at which I feel PB begin on the Pint.



  • @LidPhones I think so. lol

    So far the only times I believe I’ve felt pushback are when I am commuting in the bike lane down long stretches of uninterrupted road. I feel it more as sort of a “rocking” motion; possibly because I must be the ideal candidate in that my body’s natural reaction when I feel it is too slow down immediately to figure out WTH is happening. Definitely noticed this a couple times now, I’ll try to pay more attention to what my exact speed is but I’d guess it may even start at 13 mph.



  • My Pint finally shipped Yesterday! I can't wait for it to arrive early next week



  • @JayWalker
    Enjoy the ride! The start of your OW addiction.....



  • @a_onekatie
    I agree the pushback is kind of like a rocking motion on the Pint as it almost urges you to slow down under the PB speed. On the standard size OW it is more of a gentle lift. I look forward to any updates you can share.



  • @LidPhones today I experienced pushback going against the wind.. very odd because you're not actually going as fast as you think. It felt like I was doing 11 or 12mph but was actually 14+ mph even though the wind was slowing me down.



  • @Daymos
    Yeah, OW pushback is a function of motor load and therefore it does change with grade and drag (wind resistance). If you got use to the calm days and flat ground rides the pushback should happen around 14.1ish MPH, When the ride aspects change the OW reacts slightly different. On really gusty days be aware that pushback and surge can arrive quickly on a strong gust.



  • @LidPhones okay I’ve paid a lot closer attention the last two days. OFC the app/Bluetooth issues don’t help any, but I really think 14 MPH is the standard. Maybe 14.1 or whatever but I’m def not feeling it at 12 or 13 MPH, it’s always once I’ve gone over 14.



  • @a_onekatie Have you informed FM of the Bluetooth issues?



  • @a_onekatie wait, bluetooth issues? sorry, i'm just catching up from being gone for a week or so.



  • Six weeks after I received my pint My accessories are finally shipping!!!



  • @a_onekatie I’m having the same issues my top speed says 13 but I know I’ve gotten pushback a lot lately



  • @Mark-Vlogs no sorry not yet. Just been busy/lazy lol.



  • @Franko how was Burning Man and where are your pics?????

    My Bluetooth constantly cuts in and out, even when I hold my phone in my hand with the app open 😔



  • @a_onekatie burning man was great (as always!) -- i saw Onewheels EVERYWHERE. i did bring my Pint, but in the end i only rode it twice, once on our first day, and once on the last day. the rest of the time i was too busy and guess i chickened out a bit... the playa surface was amazing this year, but i was afraid of the Pint being stolen, and also i was nervous about riding in difficult situations. the roads got very bumpy as the week went on (which is typical), but the crowds made for tricky riding for a newbie like me -- especially at night! i did talk to a one fellow floater, but being the only person in my camp with one made me decide to keep mine locked in the car most of the time. i used my bike so i could hang with my friends more easily. by next year, though, i'll be more experienced and ready to ride, i'm sure. : )

    side note: i think i saw ONE other Pint while there, but he was riding by, and i didn't get a chance to ask him to stop so we could talk. i'd love to hear from other Floaters who went to the burn this year!



  • @a_onekatie does seem weird this problem has existed since the XR or before, and not addressed. Haven’t had time to experience this cause I just got my pint. Could the Bluetooth connection be programmed like the indicator light on the pint, which purposely goes out at speed, then re-appears when you’re going slower? Liabilities sometimes make companies limit abilities of products for safety’s sake. Is that talking crazy? Seems an obvious issue strangely overlooked if you’re releasing a new product... IMO Future Motion has never scored 10’s in terms of product delivery, or corporate communications. Can understand why they don’t want you looking at your phone while riding- can’t understand that they don’t explain that, IF that’s the case. Communication is key. If this isn’t the reason Bluetooth connectivity sucks, it would be nice to know why... either way, float on.



  • @McFloaty The bluetooth needs to stay connected. It wouldn't be right if it cuts out, then warns you that you've gone past the 50% battery sometime later when it cuts back in! It also tracks your location if you're recording a ride, so it definitely should be connected all the time. They have fixed this on the XR by replacing the controller with a new firmware version. Apparently, that can't be flashed and requires an actual replacement. We have no idea if the Pint has the same issue as the XR until someone (or everyone) with bluetooth connection issues on their Pints reports this to @Future-Motion for diagnosis.



  • @OneDan interesting and informative. Thank you. If a pint issue (have no reference, too new to pint and haven’t owned prior OW’s) firmware or otherwise, seems like a huge overlook to me, unless tethered to safety liabilities. Happy to be an added ‘squeaky wheel’ if this is simply an oversight... hope it’s not. Happy floating- don’t wanna look at my phone while floating, but wanna know I could if I wanted to...



  • Hey all!

    I’m a first time OW buyer and I’m super excited and can’t wait to get my Pint. I’d been hoping since the website still said new orders shipping September that the board’s expected ship date would be sometime in September, and I had placed my order September 9th. Sadly the estimated date was the first of October. I’m not that disappointed, I was just hoping that my new pint would be shipped out sooner. I’ll have to update on here when I get some update on my order. Currently it’s in the queue.

    And if anyone knows, how long has it taken you to get your pint from factory to door? (US) with just the free shipping.

    Thanks Guys!

    EDIT: Also apparently I looked up in the posts, is there instances where your Board won’t ship with your accessories, or do they usually ship with the board together.



  • @DashinglyHunter, I ordered mine almost 3 months ago and it's coming today. It ships from California so it took 5 days to get to me on the East coast with the free shipping option. Also, my accessories are technically shipped separately, but they're arriving today as well. I think they're all caught up on accessories by now.
