@LidPhones thanks for the advice. Think I'll take my next ride in the woods over dirt..... if I face plant.... at least it will be less painful than pavement... cheers all and thanks for the tips.

Board died with 49% Battery- WT%
Left the house with 70% battery charge. Its about 50 degrees out. Rode for a few miles with some hills. Noticed the 50% warning level. I live on a hill, so last bit of the ride was up a hill. Got a few push back warnings which I haven't felt in a long time. Went very gingerly up the hill. Turned on to a flat road at the top of the hill got off the board, battery said 49%. Got off to check out battery. When to step on board and it was dead. Said to juice up board.
I've got about 800 miles on the board and have felt really confident lately.
This sinks my confidence (i.e., don't want this to die while I'm cruising next to cars).
I've had it die at low %, which I get. But dying at 49% freaks me out.
Thoughts and suggestions are appreciated if you have any.
RE: Anyone else getting numb feet?
I’ve got almost a 1,000 miles of riding in
Rode 6 miles in the woods today and my back foot was killing
I started riding with zero experience had never even ridden a skateboard
I learned natural foot and didn’t bother learn to ride goofy foot, biggest regret ever. Switching mid ride would solved a lot of problems.
I know I should just relearn but just don’t want to be a beginner again
If I run before my ride it definitely hurts worse
Carving more helps and I find delirium is better on my feet than mission
Anyway, sore feet riding one of the most fun devices ever made is a 1st world problem
Hop off your board stomp your foot a few times and ride on
So you were right on both counts. Wobble was from low tire pressure and I do indeed have a slow leak/hole in tire. I’ve tried to patch it with flexseal tape/spray and Stan’s sealant. While I can still ride it, the tire has 600 miles on it and likely needs to be replaced. Ugh. As a result, I’m faced with a bunch of questions:
Stick with the original tire or go for an alternative? I ride a combination of street and trails. Would like better traction off roads, but don’t want vibration on the road that is going to kill my feet.
Changing the tire- I have heard it is miserable to get the tire off and new one back on. I’ve watched the videos and notice they all see to cut off at the moment when the tire is going to come off or on. A new video emerges with a very tired faced person showing the remainder of the install. Anybody in the Boston area that installs them? I sent a note to a place in Swampscott and they never replied.
Send it to OneWheel to have them fix it. It looks like they will install a tire for $99 plus shipping. Has anybody actually done this?
Tune up- with 600 miles mostly road (and I don’t beat on the board) is this necessary?
I have 700 miles on my board so I’m pretty comfortable riding
Board is in great shape, haven’t beaten it at all
Noticed the board has been wobbling when I’m riding on pavement in Mission mode
Going to Delirium mode seems to help a bit
Am I nuts ? Do I need to do a firmware update?
