Watching Action on the Leaderboards
An active day on the leaderboards, today. Dropping off the V1 Daystreak were 'Rodneycat' and 'ridersblock', making room for me -- 'S.Leon NE Ohio', and 'Wurman'. 'The1Moose' has been continuing his ascension up the XR mileage Leaderboard, passing by 'OnTheOne' recently, and coming up on 'Blue(^^)'. Big changes on the Pint mileage Leaderboard -- maybe someone could chime in here with an analysis -- I do not have a Pint and so have not watched closely. 'OneWheelJefe' is tied for eighth place at the moment with 'therealmatatat' on the Plus mileage Leaderboard. Likely from Arizona, judging from the rattlesnake icon and saguaro cactus icon by his handle, 'OneWheelJefe' holds two places on two separate Onewheels on the Plus mileage Leaderboard -- 1st and 8th, with 10577 miles and 6455 miles respectively for a combined total of 17032 miles! WOW!
(Edit: By the way, too, 'mekekgul' from Spain relinked his board, claiming the #2 spot on the V1 mileage Leaderboard. The relinking bumped me and the rest of the V1 riders down one rightful place.)
In a pleasing turnaround for me '@floatfanatics' has joined the V1 Daystreak -- below me. For all my 5000 mile daystreak '@floatfanatics' had been above me on the Leaderboard, so for me this is a welcome change.
@blkwalnutgrwr the real question I have for you is when will you surpass me on day streak mileage? Wednesday, Thursday of this week?
Big news! FranKtheTank DIY on a V1 has just now taken the OVERALL #1 spot for mileage on one board! Congratulations Frank! (at 9:45am PST June 6, 2020)
@blkwalnutgrwr title of this reply is “OW Problems.”
I’ve had a little cat and mouse chase with you surpassing me on miles for day streak which I thought was going to happen a week ago and not today. Amazing how many miles you can log so fast, especially on a V1. I realize you run range/battery extenders but still that’s awesome you are doing this on a V1. I’ve seriously considered letting it go for Frank and playing the V1 day streak leaderboard musical chairs. As previously stated, I’m gonna ride it so why not make it count.
On the XR side, I also got another mileage race going on with the number 5 day streak leader Lia from the U.K. I’ve recently decided I am going to try to hit 3,000 miles before that rider does. I’ve been passed on miles before and there are plenty of riders who have more than me with less days but I ride some gnarly rugged single tracks in the summer and spend a lot of time in the winter practicing tricks in a garage. I have never been much of a high mileage rider. I always tell people who reach out to me that it doesn’t matter the quantity of days in a row or miles but the quality of them. As long as you are having fun riding whatever you enjoy that’s all that matters. Onewheel problems, first world problems but good problems to have and I feel blessed.
@HanahsDax Yes, ride that V1 and make it count! Your 'musical chairs' is a right-on description of the V1 daystreak -- many the same riders in various orders over the course of the year. I find it fun to set a goal to work toward, or to compete with other riders. You with Lia from the U.K., and me with Maxsimmmm from the Ukraine catching up.
Like I have said, my mainstay is a paved rails-to-trails through woods and farm fields -- and pipe-like in that the snowmobiles dish it out and roughen it up in the center. The ride is heavenly smooth, relaxing, beautiful, and nearby. And while the entire trail is forty-some miles long one way, my favorite section is the seven or eight miles nearest the snowmobile club garage. My favorite weather in which to ride is cool, and even cold. The only advantage of hot, humid, and buggy weather is that I get the trail to myself -- the few bike riders and dog walkers stay home in their air-conditioning (and they generally do not come out in the cold weather either).
Truly, be safe and have fun!
Three places on the Leaderboards for me, today! #5 Plus Daystreak & two #4s for V1!
@blkwalnutgrwr damn you’ve been putting some miles in on the Plus. Triple threat!
'PASCH' got passed! Standing by his nice looking 14444 for weeks now, '@OnewheelWing' took advantage and passed 'PASCH' by for the #1 spot on the XR mileage Leaderboard. Too, '@OnewheelWing' now is not quite 200 miles behind 'FranKtheTank DIY' for overall mileage. Maybe he's motivated! -- but Frank can float like a rip tide, averaging more than 17.9 miles a day for the past 136 days.
Johnny Bell, #3 XR, is hovering at another number he seems to like: 12,500 miles. Now he claims to be floating through the McDonald Islands. 'CaptianBuddy' reclaimed the #9 spot on the XR mileage Leaderboard, but 'The1Moose' has some solid 340 miles on him, and is beginning to challenge 'Blue (<>)' who is only 138 miles up.
On the Plus mileage Leaderboard, 'Frankie mendiola' is a new name at #10. Other new names recently are 'andy64' at #5 on the Pint Daystreak, and '@loyal.6666' hailing from Chile at #4 on the Plus Daystreak.
Eight Onewheel riders now have logged over 10,000 miles on the Xr mileage Leaderboard! One on a Plus, and two on the V1 are also up there.
An interesting new name on the Pint mileage Leaderboard at #10 is 'Some1youknow'.
'FranKtheTank DIY' the overall mileage leader on a single Onewheel is soon to top 15,000 miles. Of course, with two boards on the Plus mileage Leaderboard 'OnewheelJefe' has logged a total of 17,276 miles as of this posting.
'HanahsDax continues to tenaciously hold two #1 daystreak slots, and I, 'S.Leon NE Ohio', continue racking up miles on two Onewheels, showing on two daystreaks and a mileage board. Other riders continuing to hold more than one slot on the Leaderboards are 'FranKtheTank DIY' and 'OnewheelJefe'. Edit: Forgive me! My international apologies! Another rider holding more than one place on the Leaderboards is the rider from France, 'French Flag TiY-@-N Onewheel Earth' which is about as close as I can get in replicating their handle (because I am not sure of gender, not because of more than one rider).
The main changes to the Leaderboards of late have been in the V1 and Plus #5 daystreak slots where there have been a number of turnovers. And the ante to enter the V1 Daystreak Leaderboard today is at a low 12 successive days of riding.
@blkwalnutgrwr Well Lia beat me to 3K on the XR. I took a good spill and also had my XR slam into the back of my leg a couple weeks ago and didn’t put much mileage in while recovering. Mattsplat has passed Bro-King Ole-Douger recently on the Pint mileage leaderboard. Bro-King’s Pint is Bro-Ken. He said it won’t take a charge. He reps the Pint leaderboard well and actually inspired my two 50+ mile adventures from a “PiNt-sized” 50 mile ride he posted. It’s great to see a mutual respect between the two as they are pointing to each other in their current handles.
@HanahsDax Not sure there is such a thing as a good spill. And it sounds like a big bruise from the XR on the back of your leg. Glad you are able to continue to ride and maintain your status! Thank you, too for commenting on the Pint Leaderboard -- please continue doing so as positions shift, change, or otherwise become worthy of interest. Riders inspire riders!
An even FIFTEEN THOUSAND miles for 'FranKtheTanK DIY'!
Edit: Frank liked his impressive round number more than his #2 Daystreak -- let that slide off today.
Celebrating 'Maksimmmmm' joining the V1 Daystreak. Already on the mileage Leaderboard, 'Maksimmmmm' now holds two Leaderboard positions. An interesting fact, though, is that this must be with a different Onewheel, or at least a different controller, because on the mileage Leaderboard the miles have not gone up for quite a few days.
Edit: Eleven days in, whirlwind 'Maksimmmmm' is averaging 21 miles per day!
'@OneWheelWing' has passed 'FranKtheTanK'! and is now the OVERALL Onewheel leader in mileage. Is FranKtheTanK retiring? As a fellow rider of a V1 -- I hope not. But we will see. Hearty congratulations to '@OneWheelWing' on an XR!
'Flihi' (likely a phonetic 'Fly High') of the United Kingdom, long #2 in the XR Daystreak, must have despaired of ever reaching the #1 slot, dropping off the XR Daystreak Leaderboard today after a very impressive streak of 527 days of riding. The XR daystreak riders all moved up, and we welcome 'Chazmo' to the XR Daystreak Leaderboard with an impressive and previously unseen streak of 452 days.
All but the newest rider on the XR mileage Leaderboard now have over 10,000 Onewheel miles to their credit, and the freshest rider, at nearly 10,000 miles, claims a high pressure in the tire -- 'Burris@32psi' is the handle.
'Mr. Keith' has reappeared on the Plus mileage Leaderboard after some time unlinked. I have interacted with him in this Onewheel Community Forum at some point in the past. Welcome back!
The V1 Daystreak has had a fair number of turnovers lately, with perhaps a half dozen new names showing up/dropping off. This is the Leaderboard with the easiest entry point -- currently 15 days of riding. With eleven days now of riding my other V1 a mile or so each day, I am awaiting in the wings for one or more turnovers yet to come. To tell you the truth, I do not necessarily feel the need to reach #1 -- just to be represented and recognized as a serious rider is my goal. At one point the developer of the Community Edition App was playing with the idea of perhaps a new set of Leaderboards for the Onewheel community allowing wider participation.
And that's the way it is -- the Onewheel Leaderboard news for July 7th, 2020.

10,000 miles would be easier at 32PSI.
XR streak riders #2 to #5 only have 17days between them. After a year and half persisting with this competitive folly, you would be pretty pissed about not starting a week or 2 sooner all that time ago. If @HanahsDax ever hangs up the wrist guards, it will be on for young and old.
2 years would be an honourable measure to retire on? Mr Dax?

Sorry @HanahsDax for stealing the 3000mile marker, didn't realise I was coming up to it. Got my app set in KM.
Looking back through my screenshots; if not for that 100KM VNR test ride I did the day before hitting 3000miles you'd have beaten me for sure.
Sad to see my fellow UK leaderboard companion fall off #2.
@blkwalnutgrwr To be honest, I always feel bad and selfish when the number 2 drops off. I’m a pretty selfless person, once taking out a young college dude for beers and a cruise from a story he wrote how his Onewheel has helped him cope with the loss of his mother but wasn’t his best financial move. Another time sending a kid a month worth of his savings at minimum wage because he spent his $500 “Pint savings fund” on an engagement ring for his girl. I try to honor those whose streak have ended for one reason or another by pushing one more day. My streak will end one day, that is a guarantee.
@stinkyface I’ve always set small, obtainable goals. First was to hit 300 days, then one year. After that it was 1st to 400 in a row and I dropped a video as a celebration. 500 was the next goal set, followed by 600. Now it’s 700 and after that it will be the 2 year mark. If those goals are accomplished and my board is still operating, 1000 days will be the next step. The long-term ultimate/on-going goal is just to push the next ranking day streakers to their full potential.
