RE: Tire Worn Down and Leaking Some Fluid...Huh?
I ordered this and got it in few days.
Removing the wheel is a 10 minutes process.
Remove the cover from main board and gently unplug 2 wires coming from motor.
Remove plate covering big wire from underneath black block on the right side.
Loosen the 2 center wheel screws couple turns to be removed later.
Remove the 4 outer screws.
Remove the small plate that give support to big wire.
Pull the right block up and remove the center screw.
Then pull out the block.
Wiggle the other side free and remove the center screw as well.
Might wanna take couple pre-op pics for reference later.
That'll free up the wheel.
Head to a tire shop.
The first one passed but the second was a young guy who looked at it and said 10 bucks. I said, deal.
Placed it on machine and snapped it loose.
Placed the new tire and bingo. 10 minutes job.
Insert the left block first and make sure main wheel wire is aligned the same way it was and place center screw half way to be tightened later.
Do the same on right side.
Place it in place and put back all screws. I used some locktight on them.
Always be careful with wires and plug them back in place and close safety latches.
Tighten the center screws.
Try it in hands first.
Make sure everything is the way it was and test ride it carefully.
RE: Nollie up Curb Video
He brings a lot to the sport.
He should get a pass.
My V1 awaits the blue plates.
Heck, even though I'm a chicken and wouldn't attempt those maneuvers,
they act like a nice armor on your investment.
We need positivity on this forum.
it's already dying and the only thing will be left is,
France Onewheel riders and Sonny123 posting Astoria pix.
Drop it already and bring some action.
I rest my case.
Meet the Onerack.
Who needs a backpack when you have Onerack.
Light, solid, roomy and stylish.
Use as a rack alone or with attachable bag.
Easy spray paint the way you like to match your board,
or leave it as is in black plate and silver rods.

RE: 13" tire on V1
Well, did a test run this morning.
The floating sensation on this thing is out of this world.
Grass runs like butter.
Being it's a bigger tire, the torque is not there for grassy/rough hills.
The motor will cut out and it will dump you.
A lighter weight rider, quicker on his feet will probably dodge the bullet.
Staying below 13-14 mph is a good idea. It's a higher deck and nose dive could be brutal.
Couldn't try that hill I wanted to bomb because there was a guy there on his phone. But my guess, I wouldn't have been able to.
It will need momentum and a pair of brass balls. lol.. At 50, thanks but no thanks.
All in all, pretty happy with the mod.
Heck, it might get more time than the +.
Back on the almighty after 3 weeks of service..
Wow! You don't know what you have until you miss it.
I had sent my OW for service and got it back today.
For the most part I could maintain my OW myself,
but for fine tuning, better let the experts do their thing.
First thing I noticed, BT connection was instant compared to having to keep trying.
Updated to FV 3056.
Reason for having sent it was when I bench tested it,
It would spin fully with occasional cut off to slower speed.
That's only going forward. Didn't do in reverse.
(bench test now is as normal as it gets)
Sent them a video and was told I could benefit from Firmware update.
Off it went.
1 week shipping, few days service and 1 week return.
All in all, 3 weeks on my e. skateboard with plenty of denture rattling.
Now I'm back on the smoothest ride on planet earth.
Hats off to Carly, Gabrielle and the great team of FM.
