So I had my first and hopefully last nosedive after about a week of using my one wheel. I had a fender as I was using it to go to work and that shattered in the nose dive. Long story short after a few weeks back and forth with customer there was nothing wrong with my one wheel and they wouldn’t be able to do anything about the fender. I was out of commission for a few months from severely dislocating my arm so in the down time I designed and 3D printed a replacement, and the cost was much less than buying one from Onewheel. I’ve had a few local guys also break their fenders so I’m wondering if this is a common issue. Anyway my replacement came out nice, had to cut it in half to fit on the print plate.picture

3D Print replacement fender
RE: 3D Print replacement fender
@glyph since that I have made a conscious effort to stay below 15mph and I seem to not have any issues as I have been riding fine for about the last month.
Although if it ever nose dives on me again you will see a post here advertising a used one wheel for sale.
My fender is showing some signs of where and is cracking in a few places, but is still functional. I may have to make another one so I’ll see if I can make some improvements and maybe get the nylon to print correctly this time.
