RE: Tire Pressure
@HanahsDax nope! I was a complete and total noob when I received my pint, and when I wrote up a review here and mentioned I was having stability issues, @OneDan gave me the 10% tire pressure rule. Before that I hadn’t even thought to check my pressure but as soon as I made the change I noticed the difference.
RE: Riding Music
No one is more surprised than me to report this, but: the new Pixies, Beneath the Eyrie, is surprisingly good. It's not Surfer Rosa or Doolittle, but it feels of a piece with Bossanova or Trompe le Monde.
Nothing on it is worse than "decent", and well over half of it is good-to-great, with two songs ("Catfish Kate" and "Daniel Boone") that I'd put among their best ever. Interesting production, interesting arrangements, Santiago's on fire and Lovering's drums are forward, and most importantly, catchy, slightly-weird Pixies songs.
Interesting review, thanks for that! I’ve been curious about that album, but I just personally feel like it’s not “The Pixies” without Kim Deal 😢
RE: Pint Owners - Pacific or Skyline?
To me, Pacific is the “unofficial official” ride mode for the pint. I’d only ever switch to Skyline if I were racing or trying to record a top speed. I actually find the Elevate mode more useful.
There’s also an FM Vlog on “things they wish they knew” where the guys talk about why Pacific is the ideal ride mode for pint.
RE: PSA: The Float Life Pint Accessories Restocked
FYI I randomly found the Solo float plates again yesterday!
Lot’s of colors are currently still available. The basics (black/grey/white) are sold out already tho.
RE: Pint does not engage
@Franko I get that warning quite a bit, mostly on bumpier off road terrain. I’ve still never had an unexpected nose dive or shut off while riding tho. And mostly, due to the app connection, I don’t notice until I’m done either. I wouldn’t worry about it too much.
I had the nose dive upon start up today a few times. I was practicing that technique for stopping without simple stop, where the wheel does spin out at the end, so I wonder if that could be the trigger?
