Yesterday, Ruth Anne asked me, "How old were you when you finally felt like a grown-up?"
After a pause I looked at her and said, "Ruth Anne! ...I ride a Onewheel."
Hi @HorsePlay -- Off topic, your response to words and language makes me think you might play Words with Friends. With my editor sister and with my grown younger daughter I play very open, friendly games. Some of our words lately have included OCTOPUSES, AQUATIC, SAFEHOUSE, and SNITCHERS. I am Blkwalnutgrwr there, too, if you have time and would enjoy a game ( ...or not is fine, too.) Anyone else here maybe up for a game?
Hi @NotSure -- It turns out all the extra weight seems not to make any difference in the way I ride, which is mostly narrow carving on paved Greenway.
And with no onboard battery under my trailing foot to damage, I can leave the board in the car all the time, in the hot summer and freezing winter -- not carrying it in shuttle from car-to-house.
And if ever I run out of battery on the trail, I find a hooked stick and walk, pulling the Onewheel along -- not actually carrying it and all its weight.
So yes, I could add the weight of a kitchen sink, or its equivalent. (The funny thing is I really considered using a scrap bathroom sink for a fender -- but the dimensions were not quite right.)
The newest version of freewheel brakes: Cut-down 2x2 wood fastened inside the rails, with heavy black rubber stall mat slices attached beneath. This version has not yet been tested in real life. (The extensions make mounting the board easier, too, by softening the sharp angle of repose created by the lift.)
