Hard to find a not emotionally OM owner, and if then OM Team should find the reason for such an odd case.Years ago, I worked in a series of box offices. At one box office for a major-city symphony, our box office manager explained that EVERY seat had a selling point, a story that put the seat in a good light so that a potential customer could feel good about buying that seat. Front row? You can really see the conductor. Last row of the top balcony? You see the whole orchestra. Last row on the floor under the balcony? More comfortable seats than the balcony; near the exit for intermission and to beat the crowds back to your car after the performance. Etc.
Will anyone who isn't emotionally invested in OneMotor ever review it?
I always envisioned taking my bike with the motor traveling, but you made me realize something - I don't always have to do so. The kickstand mount is universal, as you said, and it's a single bolt attachment so super easy to install. It's also automatic in positioning. So, as you said, I can just take my kickstand mount (already on my Dahon) and I can attach 1M to any bike that has a kickstand plate (most do). Even the cruiser bike at the Venice Beach rental I like to stay at....wheeeeeee.Hard to find a not emotionally OM owner, and if then OM Team should find the reason for such an odd case.
I'm about to board the plane for intercontinental flight , with my OM. Before deciding to take it with, 2 criteria have to be met: battery endurance and waterproofing. I chose for the test the solid raining day - easy: almost every second day in the Alps this summer is pouring ...
Chose the round trip route with the grade not exceeding 4-5%. Set the contact pressure to MID, Auto mode, PAS to lowest power - off I was on my Brommie. Road deserted, the only noise to hear was from the tyres routing through the water on the road surface and the puddles, motor noiseless and cool with temperatures 17- 20C but my fingertips frozen. Jeff promised min distance battery to make 10 miles = 16 km; hey mate, OM and me beat you by twice, we made 34 km. How about waterproofing? Yes, we came back both soaking wet but no one got any sign of the flu.
I love you, little OneMotor, (oops, I'm emotionally invested) tomorrow you accompany me, Brommie stays behind, Grace is sending me the kickstand mount suitable for almost any regular frame bike - I'm 2-wheel motorised while overseas. Bye bye rainy Alps, till the winter end when we return as the spectators for the world championship in ski jumping at Planica the longest jumping slope, 4 miles padeling the grade up to max 8% from my home, piece of cake for my OM
Happy riding, lucky OneMotor owners!!!
EBR (Court) now charges suppliers for reviews. 1M is reinvesting every dime into product improvement (they just bought and installed a new high-end 3d printer). Supplying units to less popular review sites probably isn't going to generate enough to compensate for a lost sale. At some point, they will likely have Court review (he reviewed the Shareroller initially, but his reviews were free at that point, I believe). I thought you had moved on and decided it was too pricey, anyway, doubt you are going to buy one based on all your comments."Hard to find a not emotionally OM owner, and if then OM Team should find the reason for such an odd case."
Sorry, I was being unclear. My question was really: Why haven't we seen any reviews yet from review web sites? I assume it is because OneMotor hasn't sent any out for review--that simple. Since OneMotor can sell all it can make for now apparently, then they do not need any help expanding their market. Not yet anyway (and not while they work on the finishing touches?). Still, I would like to see a third-party review before I buy one.
Hi. What's your backer #? I can reach out to Grace for you. Fwiw, they are working 12 hours a day, 6 days a week, to get units shipped. It's just the two of them. And - folksI am one of the original backers of Shareroller (now OneMotor) through the Indiego campaign in 2015 and I’ve heard nothing about my order but radio silence since last April. There have been no response to my emails. Does anyone have any recommendations?
As you probably recall, the price is not the only nor the most important area of concern I have regarding OneMotor's history so far--I do really want to have a OneMotor or something like it--but it has been the nausea-inducing delays upon delays (for years) along with the ever-present "in just another month" communication from OneMotor. The "in just another month" stuff was usually accompanied by a "this is so great! the delay is well worth it! and normal!" post from you, Lin B.The price is competitive, especially given the ability to use on multiple devices. If it's too pricey for you, then just move on already.
