RE: Frustrated, I sold my Onewheel and bought a scooter...
Hmmm ... I haven't had an OW dream yet ...
@NotSure , you got me. I saw that title and worried for you. LOL
What is Error 79?
0.3 miles into my morning ride I received a harsh warning sound (from my phone); the app showed a pop-up dialog: Error 79; Please check your manual or contact support.
The manual does not appear to mention Error 79 and I failed to count the flashes before shutting the board off.
Any ideas on what Error 79 signifies?
FWIW, I was riding a freshly charged battery (left charging overnight for balancing); riding dirt with a few mini-bonks over mole hills. My speed was likely ~6MPH just before the error triggered.
RE: PSA: Wear your helmet, lol
@Franko, thanks for sharing the PSA. Cute video ... just what I needed to end my day today! (Someday I will ride a Friesian. Someday.)
For those that secretly just hate the look I think they just haven't found one they like.
I agree! I hated riding my OW wearing my old bike helmet. I wore it ... but hated it. The straps bugged my jawline and the helmet sometimes slid backwards a bit too far.
BUT! I love my Triple 8 purchased from the OW website. I cannot believe the difference. The Triple 8 fits me so well that I simply forget it is there. It simply works.
So, yes, it is a matter of finding one that you like !
RE: Foot pad sensor warning
I got that message often when first working on my heel-side turns. I tend to remain heavy on the heel and now understand that I must work to rebalance my weight after completing the turn.
I've learned quite a bit about myself while training on this board. I've learned that I can isolate fear specific to my feet. That is, I'd say, "My feet felt fear." My feet would tense and remain that way for quite a long time ... which made my heavy heel even worse from the board's POV.
So ... now I try to wiggle my toes, stretch my feet and even bounce on the board now and again to loosen up. I figure the foot pad sensor warning was good feedback: I'm not riding correctly. I'm not using my body correctly.
It gets better!
RE: Watching Action on the Leaderboards
Been trying to take some time offline. Didn't want to miss a week though so I've returned to bless you all with another weekly leaderboard graphic because I know you all secretly love them ;)
So glad for your time offline! And, thank you, yes, I look forward to your weekly Leaderboard update. :)
Random Story: The power of Purpose!
I'm not athletic by either nature or training. I understand the Power of Purpose (and, related, the Power of Focus) through my mentors in Natural Horsemanship. For the most part, I'm aware of both of these as intellectual theories rather than personal experience.
Today I had one of those rare and beautiful moments when the Power of Purpose really shined. My OW practice and daily training was fueled by a real need.
Skill + Purpose: it all came together!
The story: I'm kinda distracted and busy these days. I moved my tractor work forward a day but forgot to take out the trash. And then I heard the familiar rumbling of the trash truck at a neighbor's property. It hit me like an alarm clock and I nearly jumped: "Eeek! Can I still catch it??" Maybe, even likely, if I use the OW!
I quickly grab my board, tie up the trash bag, exchange Western boots for Vans, fire up the app on my phone ... mostly simultaneously. I jumped on the board, raced around the horse paddock (practically waving a big, white, plastic trash bag; assume the horses think this is a ghost, right??) and across a bumpy off-road track to reach the roll-off. Phew! Made it!
The amazing thing: While zipping in hot pursuit of a goal, I felt like the ground was smooth. The ride was almost magical. That was that Power of Purpose ... it leveled the path and turned the bumpy, uneven terrain into smooth sailing. So cool.
I hope each of you experience that weirdly wonderful, smooth sailing joy today! Float on! :)
RE: Best aftermarket range extension methods
FWIW, FM sent me a survey last week asking for feedback on their website. I specially mentioned disappointment with their lack of engagement in this Community forum. I suggested it (this Community space) needed some feeding and nurturing ...
I was glad to have received the survey! :)
