Security and Anti-Theft Features.

    r speeds, and I constantly sw

    ok i totally take it back. got my own xr today and i am happiest in a custom setting between delirium and mission... especially with the hoosier tf2



  • @Swinefeaster - Enjoy your XR! A word of warning on the FFT2 - above 20 PSI, it gets dangerously squirrelly on pavement, with unpredictable response when turning and carving (it's fine offroad, but on pavement it tends to catch the ridged edge between tread and sidewall). At about 18 PSI, it's perfectly rideable on pavement.



  • @Glyph @Swinefeaster yeah, I run mine around 16/17 psi . . . just squirrely enough!



  • @OneDan - I'm used to running a pretty high PSI - I used to run my Whisper at 27 (now 25) and I tried everything between 20-29 on the FFT2 but never felt safe on pavement. I kind of hated the tire for that reason and badmouthed it a lot on the subreddit. Finally I read a ShreddLabs review where they noted the tire's squirrelliness and why, and said that dropping down 2-3 pounds from 20 helped smooth those eccentricities out. I tried it and at 17-18 it's perfectly fine.



  • hmmm i know what you mean about the edge, but so far it's not been an issue for me. i'll report back after a few days. 17psi on pavement just felt too "sticky", like when i'm riding my mtb on pavement with really low psi.



  • seems 19psi is the happy setting for me on the fft2.

    have you guys tried "shaping" the tire to get rid of the edge? there's videos on it by ff, but i guess it would probably decrease it's lifespan since you are effectively removing rubber.

    (sorry i know i'm totally derailing this thread)



  • @Swinefeaster I think 19 is fine too, but go past 20 and it gets dodgy to me.

    I wouldn't remove that edge though, because it really bites into dirt, that's why the tire works so well offroad.



  • I mean, let's not overthink this.

    Why not a physical key to turn where the button is now?

    Or how about a small hole straight through somewhere, basically just big enough to accommodate a kryptonite-style lock through the board?



  • @Ali_on_a_wheel @Future-Motion I'm bumping this thread cuz I think it's important. I hope FM reads this thread and takes it seriously. I think the passcode is a great idea and relatively cost effective to implement considering it likely only requires a firmware update and some additional UI elements in the mobile app. I write software and would be happy to provide the necessary feedback if the FM team isn't up to the task themselves. Frankly I'd be deeply surprised it it weren't already being discussed or in active development by now. Lowjack or some other gps feature would be great, but ultimately requires some reengineering of the hardware, which would likely be unappealing to FM at this point. I've got a Tile installed on mine, but that's not at all a fool proof solution.



  • I think I asked for this feature about a year ago. Considering that the last announcement in the announcement section has been over 2 years ago.... and there has not been a firmware update since.... I can safely consider this project as dead.

    Granted I still ride my pint almost daily.

    My Segway Ninebot scooter has a lock in the app, if you swipe to lock.... it’ll prevent anyone from riding the scooter and lock the wheel to prevent people from rolling it. Is it a 100% prevention from it being jacked? No. Nothing is. But it’s a huge step in the right direction.
