Rich old guys? Whoa pal, easy there!
I take offense to that I'm a poor practically homeless old guy. (Just turned 49)
I'll take the Pepsi challenge any day 😂 to any youngster who thinks they can beat me at speed and carving, any day. Have yet to come across anyone or seen anyone who comes close. (Even on web) If it went faster it would be better for me but at 18 mph and to carve at that speed it takes probably someone with balls of steel like my generation to do that and some other tricks from skateboarding days to break barriers and show you what can be done.🥶
You'll see me flying by your cars in and around Manhattan Beach area if looking. 😎

RE: Onewheel Demographics
RE: Charging Habits
I guess depends on what your charging. (or not)
I charge generally to about 95%. An extra reason for that is that I live in area with steep climbs and first getting board I quickly learned to not charge up to 100 as the board will shut down if regeneration goes past 100. Something you don't want to experience believe me is getting thrown off the board and worse have to run after it at same time cause it's rolling down hill and gaining speed.
On that note if I know I'll be on flat surfaces the whole time or beginning my ride I'll charge fully to 100. This next part is important and you learn things like this but it's never mentioned. If you don't charge your board every so often to 100 (and let it sit on 100 for about an hour past that) you may run risk of your batteries being charged "unevenly". What results from this as with me is going up hills your Onewheel might "slip or fludder" If your over 50 you should be done however note you can get thrown forward if you feel this and don't immediately slow down.
Charging up to 100 remember you can't overcharge your Onewheel. So once in a while let it charge even overnight, it won't hurt it.
My board pulsed same as Starrett67
My board “pulsed” same as starrett67. Same mileage coincidently ( or not) too. Seems happened going uphill which I was led to believe 20% was no problem. I weigh 165 so not near weight limit. After that today I was riding on flat and normal conditions on mission mode and I felt that slippage or pulse again! That really got me worried when I was riding not even 10 mph and board seemed like it shut down. It started to wobble (or lose balance) I would have eaten it if I was a less experienced rider I’m sure ,..anyway I stayed on board and was back up again but quickly pulled over to immediately send diagnostic to FM. I don’t know if they got it or last nights diag. as they are closed. Maybe they only get the last one sent idk? My board has 350 miles only. I’m sure it’s under warranty however this is a downer as rider confidence goes, and as it’s my daily ride and transportation. Lastly, if sent in am I liable for shipping cause I’m not shelling out 80 bucks for something under warrently not to mention how long I’ll be without board. Any advise.. please be gentle. Lol
