Just tested on the OW+ Footpads and the wiring is the same.
It's closed by default and circuit opens when the sensor is pressed
@skyman88 What's interesting to me is how the numbers are practically the same. I wonder if they purposefully give ETAs that are roughly half of what it should take. Or if they figured that going over double the expected wait is the threshold where they start to lose too many clients.
6 -> 9-12
60 -> 90-120
I guess I'm trying to rationalize why they've been giving misleading ETAS since January and why they haven't tried to fix it... Or why they've yet to improve their PR in a satisfactory manner...
It's like FM gave up on ethical marketing practices... Just cuz? Surely, there's got to be a reason... Right?
I'm just saying, by now their Marketing team should be fully aware that they're pissing off their customers. I actually met a guy in Seattle who really wanted to try a Onewheel, so I let him try mine. Turns out he totally geeked out on it and tried to find all the info he could. He had even looked at this very thread! So why didn't he purchase one? Because he was under the impression that they would never catch up with orders. Their 💩 marketing is hurting their sales and makes me seriously question wether they're the entity that will make the Onewheel a mainstream sport...
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
The FM site now says "Ships in 6 Weeks."
Yeah I believe the true "purchase to ship" date is somewhere in the ballpark of 9-12 weeks
And people that ordered in January thought they'd have to wait at most 60 days and ended up waiting anywhere between 90-120 days. Interesting...
Sorry for the lack of updates folks! I know the wait can be agonizing. I've been there 👎
I will update the chart today or tomorrow!! 🤓
I didn't forget about y'all! I've been busy working on something I wish existed when I was first looking into OW. Stay tuned... 🙈🙉🙊🏆🎟
Ordered skate pads but what about motorcycle gear? Anyone consider it?
I have a moto helmet that has a full face visor (but no chin guard). It's made me a lot more comfortable riding at higher speeds. The full face visor is also super nice, leaves my peripheral vision intact and protects me from dust, insects, ... DOT certification certainly gives me added peace of mind. I wouldn't recommend anything with a chin guard as it'd prevent you from seeing your feet.
I had a mild concussion falling at 25mph wearing a snowboard helmet. I don't want that to happen again.
Only times I use a skate helmet is when I plan to stay below pushback territory. Otherwise I feel as adequately protected as this man:
Also moto jackets will prevent many scratches and some have built-in armor. I feel like it'd actually work really well if you're really worried of high-speed spills...
