    Hi Drew, sorry I sold it a while ago.

    Review of OneMotor for Brompton

    The brompton has steel wheel rims? Well, that explains some of the weight then. I'd be curious how quality alloy rims would last, like a Velocity rim on my Bike Friday. I'm just thinking that caliper brakes/v brakes wear down wheel rims and that's why they have wear indicators so it makes me...

    Review of OneMotor for Brompton

    That system is unfortunately not available in the US, but I recall being very interested. I'll be interested to hear how the rim holds up, other than that it seems brilliant.

    Review: My OneMotor drive (formerly Shareroller)

    I lost $ on an all in one wheel I backed before OM. It's gambling. If I don't find a buyer for my OM, where are you located? I'd donate it to you if you're local (if I can't get any $ for it elsewhere) and you could play with it....ease the hurt a bit.

    Review: My OneMotor drive (formerly Shareroller)

    Due to a recent medical diagnosis, I no longer can ride a 2 wheel bike so I'm selling my Bike Friday pakiT. I was hoping my OM would fit my new recumbent trike, but there's no way I can make it work, the mounts are just not adaptable to the trike. So - if there's anyone still on here who would...

    Review: My OneMotor drive (formerly Shareroller)

    AFAIK they are still in business but they are unfortunately very slow to respond. It's just Jeff & Grace now. Keep sending emails to info@onemotor.co. and put something about wanting to purchase in the subject line, in caps. Hopefully it will stand out from the many emails Grace slogs through...

    Review: My OneMotor drive (formerly Shareroller)

    Ok just a quick update, about battery longevity. It's been over 2 years and I am just now seeing a more rapid decline when I ride. Where I got ~ 20+ miles when my battery was brand new (in level 1) I'm getting more like 15 miles now. It's forcing me to ride analog more, probably not a bad...

    Review: My OneMotor drive (formerly Shareroller)

    Now I have had a couple decent rides and the belt replacement I received is much better than the original one that came with my early backer order. Hardly any tire dust, where the earlier belt definitely created lots of dust. It also feels "smoother" when I ride but that's subjective and maybe...

    Review: My OneMotor drive (formerly Shareroller)

    Received my replacement handlebar controller. It's much better than my original one, the display is larger so my old eyes can see it better. It also has a little hole on the back to string a zip tie and I attached it to a coiled keychain I clip to my bag - not losing this one! Pairing was...

    Review: My OneMotor drive (formerly Shareroller)

    Just want to report that today I changed the belt on my OM. It's been 2 years and it was pretty sad looking. Grace's instructions were just excellent and it's a good thing, as I can easily mess up stuff like this without clear directions. It took me about 20 minutes, at least half of which...

    Review: My OneMotor drive (formerly Shareroller)

    Thought I would update on my battery's life. It's 2 years this coming week that I've had my OM. I did a 18.5 mile ride yesterday and my battery ran out at 17.7 miles. This was almost all at Level 1 PAS, although there were 3 short hills where I bumped to level 3 briefly. Given that the range...

    Review: My OneMotor drive (formerly Shareroller)

    Roflmao! I had the same experience with UPS and my refurb Android phone. Apparently it was too cold here when it arrived in the Bay Area so it decided to go inland for a few days to warm up before it came back here for delivery. I, too, use an iPhone and Simblee worked when I first got my OM...

    Review: My OneMotor drive (formerly Shareroller)

    So I purchased a new iPhone and when that happened I lost access to the OneMotor app because Simblee is no longer available thru the IOS App store. Recently I also managed to lose my handlebar controller (found it after a car had run it over, sigh) and I'm waiting on a replacement from Jeff &...

    Review: My OneMotor drive (formerly Shareroller)

    Yay! And now that you mention it, my PAS battery died after I hadn't charged for a week. I'm now charging every 2-3 days. Of course, my PAS battery was more than a year old so could have been either reason.

    Review: My OneMotor drive (formerly Shareroller)

    If you do find a source, please post. All I could find was bulk versions from Asia and shipping costs were prohibitive. These also didn't have the little clip connect on them so that would have to be applied/soldered in place as well. Beyond my skills.

    Review: My OneMotor drive (formerly Shareroller)

    Yeah Grace and Jeff will send you replacement little batteries for the PAS and controller; they just charge shipping, no charge for the batteries. The thing about those tiny little batteries is they have limited capacity and I also don't know how long they would last just sitting around as...

    Review: My OneMotor drive (formerly Shareroller)

    Just a quick update. Still going strong. New batteries in the PAS and controller have been great. I still haven't swapped out the belt, waiting until it is absolutely necessary. Battery range is down a bit from original, I'm getting maybe 4 or 5 miles less than when brand new. Still good...

    Review: My OneMotor drive (formerly Shareroller)

    Hey just saw this... PAS runs out faster than the controller as the battery is smaller. A 15 mile ride today dropped my controller 6% and my PAS 4%. Full ride on level 1 assist. As the batteries get down below 50% the drop off rate increases so extrapolate accordingly. As to the burn out...

    Review: My OneMotor drive (formerly Shareroller)

    Sometimes it has taken a week or so to hear back. It is just the two of them (actually I think only Grace handles the communication so it's just one person). I'm not sure if they have other day jobs but that's entirely possible, as OM isn't producing enough to support two people AFAIK, yet...

    Review: My OneMotor drive (formerly Shareroller)

    I think the belt is $45-50. Based on my usage (not daily) I'd say you probably get aroud 2 years of intermittent use so seems pretty reasonable. If you use it every day and constantly, obviously you'd get less duration. There's also the tire wear to consider as a small expense. I would again...
