RE: Onewheel+ New owner/Rider... Took it for the first ride today.
One Wheel Plus
I am new to this as well just one week in. I have learned a lot very quickly and became over confident. Paid the price by getting wobbly and the nose dip which I went flying and was not wearing the appropriate gear. Some bumps tons of road rash and a swollen knee later needless to say I have gained a ton of respect for the board. I am a Firefighter and went on duty pretty beat up and looked like crap. That wasn't the only fall that day. It was just a rough day. Very Lucky!!!
So I went through the threads and found a lot of good information.
First I got the right gear. Wrist guard and elbow pad. Already had a helmet.
Second I dropped my tire pressure down to 16psi which made taking the bumps so much easier and helped with the wobbles. It inherently did slow me down which is interesting. It made it much harder to go faster in the sequoia,cruz, and mission modes. Much better carving though. All together easier to handle.
Third talked to FM and clarified some information that is out there. Changing the modes on OW+ does not change the nose level as it did in V1.
I have also been messing around with my feet position. I noticed with my rear foot farther back it is harder to go forward but easier to carve. Tomorrow I will mess with more of a narrow stance and see how that feels. Also concentrate like you said on looking forward and not down which you seem to understand already.
Having a similar driveway it sounds like in mission mode it went up without a problem but in cruz struggle a bit. I attribute this to the lower pressure. At 20psi it did everything.
Things I am trying to do is stay lighter on my feet by not being so tense.(hard after my falls)
I did feel some push back today which occurred at a lower speed then normal. Not sure if that is because of the lower tire pressure. If anyone knows please let me know. Take it easy even though its hard when you start to feel like you are getting it. Have FUN
RE: Tire pressure a bigger deal than I thought!
@groovyruvy From reading through many threads and talking to FM tire pressure effects so much. Yes lower pressure increases tire wear, decreases speed, and distance. However lower tire pressure with give you more control with wobbles and carving. It also absorbs the road much more. I think it is good to experience different levels of pressure which also effects feet placement. What is the goal? Speed definitely higher pressure but carving lower pressures the advantage.
RE: Is there no pushback on mission setting?
Messing around today in mission mode and at 18psi learned a few things. I concentrated on feet position and hip and shoulder position. I felt like I was in good control and just carving and having fun. My app went off and I hit 20mph which is record for me. Didn't feel it though. I noticed with my body position that I was just moving along and didn't even really feel the pushback like I was feeling before. All in all just a smoother ride.
