Am I missing something? This looks like a $1950 value for $2450. Why would anyone pay more for slightly used?

RE: OneWheel + XR with fender and extra bumper kit
RE: Grip tape and sensor pad moving
This happened with my XR. The grip had moved about 1/4 to 3/8 inch. On a new footpad, about 1/8" of wood is visible at the top. Mine slid far enough that at least 1/8" of the grip tape was hanging over the edge. I did not experience any issues with it or unpredictable behavior. The two-sided sensor did not seem to be affected. I did open a support case and have sent the footpad in to be looked at. That's the current status. So far I've been very happy with the support, communication, and response times from Future Motion.
Real world range experience - high side of what's stated
I've had an XR for about six weeks now and my experience with distance range per charge has been incredible. I haven't tracked for every charge, but here's some of what I have noticed:
Over 20 miles on mostly flat, smooth pavement.
App shows 55% battery remaining, with 58% usage and 14% regen, after a 10.4 mile ride on varied elevation, asphalt.
Over 50% battery remaining after ~10 mile rides.
App shows an estimated remaining range of 9 miles with 39% battery remaining (I didn't track the mileage up to this point)
I want to ask if others are experiencing this.
I also want to ask what range plus owners are getting. Does is often exceed the stated '5-7 miles'?
Replaceable wear 'plates' to protect the aluminum rails.
I realize this would require a change in design, but it would make an already very durable product even more robust and help it look nicer longer. A replaceable/sacrificial plastic wear plate attached near the ends of the aluminum rails, smaller than the size of the plastic 'ONEWHEEL+' emblem, but extending both higher toward the foot pads and lower toward the underside of the bumper - would keep those rails looking great and make them last longer.
These are needed even more because the rails are not a part that can be purchased (except for after-market/3rd party.)
I realize the float sidekicks are probably a great product, but I think something similar to what I have described would be more aesthetically pleasing.
RE: First day with my XR and already had 2 crashes...
I had a very similar experience on my first day of riding about a month ago, also in Sequoia mode. I was tilting the board in an attempt to slow down and the board did not slow. I don't know at what speed pushback occurs in Sequoia mode, but the feel is not at all intuitive to me. I have never had this issue in mission or delirium mode. I recommend mission mode for new riders. And except for a little bit of experimenting and comparison, I have not used Sequoia or Cruz modes since day 2 of owning my XR.
RE: XR top speeds
I have experienced very much the same. Pushback in mission mode is occurring at around 15-16 mph. Absolute top speed for my board is reported at 18.8 mph. It doesn't bother me to have a top cruising speed around 15-16. What I don't like is that the pushback puts the board at an angle that doesn't feel as stable for me. When I slow down the board does even out - as shown in the manual. It just seems to be a matter of finding that 'sweet-spot' speed that is comfortable cruising with the board level, and not constantly in a cycle of 'accelerate - pushback - slow down/level.'
RE: One Wheel speed up when trying to slow down?
I have experienced this several times and mostly in Sequoia mode. When I have done this, I believe it is due to the difference between changing the angle of the board and 'leaning' back. If I tilt the board backward but lean forward, the Onewheel will accelerate. To slow down, I must actually lean toward my back foot - I think putting more pressure on the rear foot pad than the front. This is something that to me does not feel entirely intuitive in the shaping. And I think a bit of a problem especially in the shaping mode that is supposed to be the most tame.
