Just Brown PLA Plastic on a 3D printer. The hand is a scan of my own hand. Brown was the last color I had on the printer (for a client). Too lazy to change it to another color.

RE: Your Pint Shipping Date
What protective gear do you all wear?
I wear wrist guards (already saved me skinned up hands), elbow pads, and knee pads. I also won't ride in shorts. Right now I'm using my motorcycle helmet . . . . no place in town sells a skate/bike helmet in my size. So until I get one of those ordered (in no hurry, the MC helmet offers a lot more protections) I look kind of funny.
And here is why I where all the protection :D
RE: Onewheel backpack
@b0ardski I don’t even want a “bag” TBH. I need to design some sort of sling or harness I think...
In the facebook onewheel owners group, someone has a picture of them using one of these:
Slip a loop over each end of the OW and then sling in on a shoulder like a purse or bag.
@stinkyface do you know of any videos on different stopping methods? i'm still figuring out how to look super natural stopping on my Pint with SimpleStop enabled, but i definitely am more used to it than the thought of rolling backwards and riding fakey!
I know the feeling on the "is he going to die when he stops" simple stop dismount. I'm still working on it. Only on day 6 of riding a OW.
RE: Is there a secret I haven't discovered yet
Toe side is the one I'm having very little problem with, heal side slows me to a stop and with the simple stop enabled I start to roll backward and shuts the board off (I was doing it with simple stop off) but I figure I'll learn forward riding first then try and add backwards later.
And yes I am using knee and elbow pads and wrist guards. Unfortunately my armored motorcycle gloves won't fit under the wrist guards. And I'm also wearing my motorcycle helmet.
Once I get the driveway down to a science . . . I'll move on to a bigger area. I'm taking it nice and slow. I have it set on "Redwood". The lowest (??) setting.
Is there a secret I haven't discovered yet
Okay I've never been on a snowboard or surfboard. And its been decades since I rode a skateboard or roller blades. (yet for some reason I thought it would be fun to ride a OneWheel :D :D :D)
I've been on it 4 times now. I'm old -- and that means brittle so I'm taking it slow and easy. Haven't left my driveway yet . . . but today I found I can turn "forward" really easy. Could go down the driveway and do a "forward" turn around a garbage can and back down the driveway. When I try and turn "backward" I end up slowing to a stop. Any secret on the turning to your back?
