@rnengel85 general rule is you want the tire pressure at 10% of your body weight. For me that means knocking it all the way down to 11.5! This should help you a ton with stability as well.

I preordered my pint on 3/17/19 and received it 7/22/19. Just hit 400 miles 3/01/20.

RE: First time one-wheeler, knee pain?
I find it a bit uncomfortable for the front leg if I am into "pushback" speeds.
Also if I ride in elevate mode on pint for long distances and/or am traveling uphill at length; basically any time I am really digging/leaning into the nose is really the only time I personally experience knee fatigue or pain.

RE: Another Pint vs XR question
Okay first let me just say that I’m about 8” shorter than you and weigh half as much.
Before the lockdown I was commuting on my pint every day from September of last year until mid March (and maybe a weeks worth of Rain days). For me, range is never an issue in the city. In the warmer months, at my weight, I could get well over 10-12 miles on a single charge just carving pavement. And I like the lightness and smaller size as part of my commute does involve taking public transportation; I imagine navigating an XR thru crowds, turnstiles, escalators etc. would really take some getting used to.
I also live in “the boonies” so on the weekends (and nowadays) I ride trails exclusively. The pint holds up well and can honestly tackle any terrain, but even I can start to notice it’s weaknesses here. If I am climbing hills at all, I absolutely tear thru my battery. To date I think I’ve never managed a trail run longer than 4-5 miles or so. For some people that’s totally enough. But if you’re one of us who sort of become addicted upon initiation, you’ll find yourself wanting to push that more and more.
TLDR while I fully understand the appeal of both models, if you think range is going to be important to you than I’m afraid the pint probably isn’t going to cut it.
RE: Unknown water damage, consequences, lack of proper warranty service.
I’m really sorry for your experience but I honestly do not understand why you thought your XR was waterproof? OW’s, as assembled by FM, are not.
A.) If you planned to ride it in the rain at all, then you needed to waterproof the board by installing the after market badger kit. Personally I get nervous just riding thru the occasional puddle. If there’s even a slight drizzle out, my board stays home.
B.) Can you clarify what you meant by “spraying” it down? I sincerely hope that was not a reference to using a hose. That’s like using a hose to clean out your toaster. I mostly use wet wipes when cleaning my pint, as that allows me to control exactly where the moisture goes.
RE: Fresh Pint Fender Photos - Share What You Are Rolling -O-
Decided to remove my fender since I’m not commuting currently, found out the C&R magnetic preorders are officially delayed a month and I also went back to my standard handle bc the padding on my pro version is completely shredded. The black fender delete is totally killing my vibe tho I think hahaha. So today I went ahead and ordered a hot blue one. Will update upon arrival.
Noticed I am getting a ton of rock/pebble kick-up now, to the point I am actually having to pause and empty out my shoes! :D Is that because of my backwards tire tread or just par for the course with the rugged terrain I’m riding I am wondering...
RE: OW XXR
Future Motion if you're listening, rework the XR and give it the pint form factor, increase the range to 35 to 45 miles, put battery capacity lights on it so you don't need a phone app finally include some type of audible warning when nearing lower battery capacity and too high of a speed. Call it XXR.
I charge nothing for this information.
Yes please! I would be ALL OVER this!
