Is this thing working?
Hey guys. Just joined this because I want a OW so bad and I’m trying to learn as much about them as I can before I save up enough to get one. I love this product and got to test ride one for about 10 minutes and haven’t stopped thinking about owning one since. My day will come.

RE: XR constantly losing app connection?
Hi all, I found out what the Bluetooth problem is, anyone has a XR controller board on their hands?
So what’s the problem? How do we fix it? I’m pretty sure we all have an XR controller board in our Onewheel’s but what do we do to fix the problem?
RE: Onewheel riding is like surfing in South Africa
Not at all! I love this thing. I think the cinstant reminder that it may nosedive at any time keeps me more aware of my speed and how hard I’m pushing it.
RE: Onewheel V1 on golf course
This is pretty good deal on an XR listed on craigslist for barely being used plus all the accessories.
If you live close to this area, and in the market, it might be worth a drive to pick it up. BTW it's not mine...I just spotted it.
He said he’s in Europe.
RE: V1 oldest version bearings
@krisusan just my best guess but aren’t bearings.... well bearings? I would imagine they come out like any other bearing. Look for the YouTube video with the “bearing guy” for Onewheel’s. Better yet, look no further. Sean Nelson aka “the bearing guy”. I believe this to be the most informative video on bearing replacement for the onewheel. Hope this helps.
RE: Nosedive on flat path. Crash #3.
@sdonewheel also when the board is on, there is resistance in the motor. Try turning on the board and without engaging the sensors, roll it about a foot then turn it off and try it again. You’ll notice the resistance. I’m not sure but I believe in some (possibly most) nosedives there’s still that resistance there because the board doesn’t completely shut off. I have fangs too but haven’t had a nosedive due to speed. I have hit the nose going up a steep incline and rode the fangs the rest of the way up the incline until the board could level out.
RE: Got my Onewheel 2 weeks ago. I just decked it out. All the tape work was done by hand. Nothing came prefabbed but the rail guards. Opinions and comments are welcome. I named mine, “RîG*VICîOUS” (Now I gotta learn to ride the thing)
@causticgrip keep up the good practice. I took it nice and slow and worked my way up to being able to cruise around effortlessly. Watch out when you hit the road for height changes in the ground. They really caught me off guard when the were in line with the wheel.
