For any Australian or New Zealand potential onewheelers. The deal for buying a Onewheel just got significantly better.
As of 2 days ago the overall cost for 2 years went from $5000USD to a bit over $2000USD
Wildearth in Brisbane distributes the Onewheel. I was lucky enough to get the last one on sale for $1950AUD (about $1460USD) shipping included.
Now that the sale has ended you can order them for just under $2400AUD ($1800USD) (sign up to newsletter for a 5% discount)
The main benefit of this deal is that with Australian consumer law you can return a Onewheel with a major fault directly to the retailer. So the 1 year warranty is useable for any major fault without paying $600 for shipping. I would assume that the chance of a fault in the second year would be pretty low if you got through the first year (i.e. you don't have a lemon)
Now that @njcustom has released his tire change tutorial (thankyou!!!)
the four tire changes come to $200, instead of $2600.
So, my plan is to wait until the warranty expires, then get some spare parts and do my own tire changes and repairs as needed.
I hope this news encourages more people to buy the Onewheel down under!
