  • RE: Followup to the Onewheel XS

    Been buuuuuuuuuuuusy ^-^

    You know those pics of a human nervous system laid bare (if not don't look it's nightmare fuel). This sorta reminds me of it.

    Didn't want to carve out space for pulldown resistors on the footpad so I managed to bake them onto the pins right off the VESC.

    Defo not going over the top with detailing things you won't see. I just had to even if it's not 100% accurate. It's hard to appreciate how tiny this thing is. I had to use the macro zoom.

    Was testing griptape and a printed footpad which worked great! Decided to tease it in this pic I put up on Insta the other day.

    In preparation for casting some parts I got a vacuum chamber and pump. Managed to get the pair separate real cheap on eBay second hand ^-^

    Also making some progress on the footpads. There are more jigs to make these than anything else on this iteration of the XS.

    You must ruin a lot of material to get even a tiny bit of experience and skill using a scroll saw. Honestly these things are evil but a band saw is scary and I'm running out of space/money πŸ˜…

    There are a bunch more processes needed to finish these so I made some spare in case something went wrong and I had to redo some. Learnt from last time :3

    This morning though things really ramped up. I got my CNC parts delivered. These.... cost quite a bit but honestly they were worth it. Let it be known a board half the size is not half the price even at cost.

  • RE: Hacksmith's fuel powered Onewheel

    @lemur That would be extremely popular on a group ride cross country

  • Hacksmith's fuel powered Onewheel

    Ego batteries on the fender are out. Lil 3hp engine and a big tank are in.
    Bogdan from Hacksmith Industries gave into that intrusive thought some of us have definitely had.

    It's er... loud πŸ˜… But the estimated range is frankly unbeatable.

  • RE: Help a fellow Pint owner, maybe?

    @lia i'll pass it on to the person. thanks!

    [EDIT]: update -- they said:

    "Thank you for that advice! So I got home and I opened it all up and everything looked great, unfortunately lol. I was hoping I would see something that was obvious but it looked pristine once I got the cover off. The good news is I got it to work… The bad news is… I don't know how. I started pushing down on things just to see if anything was loose and then all of a sudden the light comes on. A couple minutes later I was doing something and the light went off and then I pushed down again and the light came back on. so I went ahead and connected everything back together and the light stayed on and I was able to ride it but now I'm worried it's going to shut off. 😬😬😬 I can't trust it to ride it rn because I can only assume I would nosedive."

    @franko I don't have access to my reddit account (no idea why lol its not logging in) but I can only imagine it's something internal.
    I would pop the front first and see if the button/nut look fine before digging deeper. Jumping the pins on the button connector can rule out the button.

  • Help a fellow Pint owner, maybe?

    Hi all -- just saw this over on the OW subreddit (i know, i know, i swore i was going to stop reading it!), and i was wondering if anyone here had any tips or advice for this poor Pint owner. I have no idea what could possibly be going on, but i know lots of people here are very very knowledgeable about such things, so i thought i'd do them a solid and see if anyone had any ideas:

  • RE: Slow and steady wins the race

    Today I went up a particularly steep section of trail that my old CBXR could just barely make. There is this one root where it is best to deweight over and push the nose down with your toe. I did the same routine today on my 18S2P VESC, and it had enough power that I ended up getting air and bonking it! Probably only a couple inches of air, but that felt exhilarating.

    I have tried the hill on my GT, but it struggles due to clearance issues.
