RE: What's going to fail first, and how?
hi, i ride in vienna, i am 53 and i want to have fun and ride in a save way.
for me riding in a save way means: i always wear a helmet, wrist guards, elbow and knee protectors.
And: i am aware of my conditions.With conditions i mean: when i worked a long time and come back home at 11pm, i am aware, that my concentration is not so sharp like in the morning, i am aware that my body is tired, so i reduce speed, but i have fun, i forget my problems at work and i relax. and i am 53, i cannot compare with guys in their 20's or 30's.
a few months ago, end of april i read in the forum about heavy injuries (nosedives) of some members and i read the postings that something is wrong with the board. i was scared. i also read the postings from (for example) thegreck and vabuz, also watching their videos, and i came to a better understanding of the board. i stay centered on the board, i wear flat shoes with a thin sole, to have a good contact to the sensors and i slowly build up my skills. i am not a advanced rider, but after 600 km (370 miles) my opinion is: these nosedives are mostly user errors. they stay not centered and speed up with little skills and do not understanding push back, go beyond push back and buuummm.
if you want check your sensors before riding: turn your board on, and check your sensor plates (2) with a little pressure of your fingers, if a sensor is working well, the light in will get brighter. another idea is the android app called POWheel, it records your sensors while you are riding.
the onewheel is a electronic device, like our cars. i trust in the craftsmanship of the futuremotion company, compare the inside of a trotter (youtube video) to the connectors of a onewheel. what a difference.
the forum-community is also a safety backup for me, there are so much riders out there with a high amount of miles, they will tell us about lifetime of the board.
i think nobody is trolling in this forum.
greetings from vienna and sorry for my broken english.
a big thanks to the community
i ride in vienna / austria till 2.5 months and i thank you all a lot for sharing your knowledge. i have learned so much from you out there.
in the early days i was a little bit scary about nose diving, i went to parking lots in the night and it was a kind of slow motion, but i established a fine and save feeling on the board.
i was in classic mode these days, i know from your postings a lot of pushback, i went in pushback in a controlled way, i felt the unsave feeling of 'wobbling' and i learned to control it. now i like to ride in elevated shaping, for me it's a really nice feeling with the nose a little bit up.
as you know, riding the onewheel is so much fun, it's like sowboarding every day. i presented my wife a onewheel and she is riding enthusiastic. we explore the city and our neighborhood in a complete new way.
for me the onewheel is like a kind of time-machine, it brings back my thirties (i am 53).
greetings from vienna to all of you
