Moved to a new place and having my onewheel+ is a lot less useful now so I'm looking to sell it. Has around 550 miles and is in pretty good condition. It will probably need a new tire in another 100 miles or so though. Comes with the original box, charger, fender, and wave stand. Local pickup only, don't really want to ship it. $900

RE: Injury Reduction or How to Crash at 17 mph
But, I do know that if I had put my wrist guards on I might not have such nasty road rash on my palms.
On the flip side, after my first fall that was just a bit of road rash on my palms I started wearing wrist guards. My 2nd (and milder) fall with wrist guards dislocated and fractured my shoulder. Look into it and you'll find that while wrist guards definitely do protect your wrist, they also transfer all that force up into your arm and increase the chances of breaking an elbow or shoulder.
I'd recommend a nice pair of thick leather gloves. Also not taking the onewheel over 15mph definitely helps, that's about the fastest I go these days and 0 issues since then.
RE: Sold: $1450 - OW+, extra charger, Wave Stand, Carbon Fiber Fender, Silver Handle
@gadgetrider Great question... I think for now might be accurate too.
I feel like helmet and wrist guards are a must.
On the other hand, I crashed pretty good early this year while wearing wrist guards. One thing that you'll find out if you dig into it is that while they protect your wrists they also take away the shock absorption your wrists provide and transfer all that force upwards into your arm. I dislocated and fractured my shoulder in a fall that I'm pretty sure would have just scraped up my palms pretty bad without guards on.
Another friend of mine fell off an electric unicycle wearing wrist guards and fractured his elbow for the same reason. Not saying there's not situations where they help but they aren't 100% helpful.
RE: High Speed Nose Dive in Delirium (WW+)
Honestly after reading this post I think you need to go take a basic physics course. The only way to stop the nose from touching the ground is to accelerate. Don't buy a self balancing vehicle if you need foolproof safety measures.
Selling V1 Onewheel - Virginia
Haven't been riding my V1 since I got my + so I decided its time to sell. Has around 300 miles on it, tire is still good and no issues. Regular scratches from riding but overall in good condition. Warranty is still good on it. Comes with the original box and charger.
Looking to get $850
Would prefer local pick up in Charlottesville, VA but I'll get a shipping quote if anyone wants it shipped.
RE: Nosediving +
I can't speak to all the issues here, but after getting my + today and riding it a bit I can see how experienced v1 owners could nosedive on the +. It behaves very differently due to the more powerful engine. The nose is pretty much rock solid on the + vs the v1 where it dips down when you lean forward. If you tried really hard to push the nose down to get a similar feel to the v1 I bet you'd go flying pretty fast. I know on my first couple rides I had to keep reminding myself it wasn't the same and I had to adjust my stance and aggressiveness a bit.
RE: A thought: post your OW+ shipping notifications w/ first two digits of order #?
#1024X and I just got my notice. I'm hyped! Looks like they are making good progress today.
RE: V1 nosedives at high speeds
The top speed on the V is 14-15 mph.
Anything above that, you're on your own and the balance is much less.
Been riding for over a year and yet to by pass 13.9 mph according to the app.
I've gone around 20mph on my V1 and this is completely correct. After 16-17mph is like taking the training wheels off, you can definitely go faster but after that balancing is way more up to your own skills and the board makes that known with pushback. If you're above 17mph and you make any sudden movements or jam the front down trying to accelerate you'll probably end up on the ground.
Anyone know if the overcharge shutdown is based on the battery % or the cell voltage?
My battery is having an issue where it pretty much always shows 100% battery charge despite everything working exactly as you'd expect (range and everything is good). I've been riding it with pretty much constant overcharge warnings popping up on my phone and haven't had it shut down yet but I've been getting a little concerned. All my cell voltages are balanced and usually below full so I was wondering if the overcharge shutdown was based off cell voltage rather than the battery %? If that's the case it would make me feel a lot better about riding until support gets back to me.
