I'm feeling part of the club now... I got the 'did you make that?' question yesterday! I'm wondering too, are we attention junkies? Are these comments our drug? As I'm still getting comfortable riding I actually find I enjoy the quieter times when there are less onlookers but will admit that getting a comment from a passer by is a bit of a rush. Then there's the ones that don't even seem to notice me and I almost want to stop and say 'hey, are you seeing this?? cool eh?' (yes, I'm Canadian)

@Wrex - age is just a number ;-) mine is 53 but I get younger every time I ride
RE: Looking for a OW in Canada (Edmonton)
got any friends closer to the border? I live in Vancouver and had mine shipped to a US location and then brought it across the line. Depending on your border guard they might just wave you through. My wife picked it up for me and said it was 'some skateboard thing' and the dude wished her a good day!
The USD-CAD exchange is painful but the OW is awesome and loads of fun.
I think FM has some good opportunity in Canada if they can improve the supply lines. I suspect a Canadian service location would also be nice :-)
Hope you get your OW soon before the freeze comes !
RE: Why is your helmet best?
I wasn't that picky... got a Bell BMX style, flat black - biggest consideration was that I didn't want to look like a DORK... I rode a bike all my life and snowboarded for years without a helmet but after kissing the ground (grass thankfully) the day I got the OW I decided it was worth it. Oh, and the OneWheel sticker looks spectacular on the back!
