Agree that V1 is noisier.
A smaller detail I noticed is that the XR is louder at a standstill (while active) vs the V1 but once you start moving the V1's noise becomes more noticeable.
I had a V1 and was able to get to 24MPH on it once and can now only get to 17 max before teh motor starts giving out. The difference is that the 24MPH was when the board was still practically new, but now that I've added over a thousand miles to it, the batteries have definitely degraded.
So it looks like error 16 is similar to errors 22 and 23 where they've recently (Firmware > 4209) integrated some check to make sure you haven't modified the board to get more range. This check has a MAJOR bug issue as many, like you, have described being thrown off their board after they've ridden 8-9ish miles.
That specific issue hasn't existed until recently (past ~6 months or so), but generally about 95% of the situations people describe their board turning off randomly is typically from rider error.
If you are having the "Invalid hardware detected" issue, here are two workarounds until FM fixes it:
Couple things to try
so I hosed it off and rode around to make sure it still worked
If your board starts having issues after something like this is done, you're kinda SOL. Hate to break it to ya, but hosing is pretty much the worst thing you could do to any OW, including the pint.
The build quality of OW's vary greatly as some users can ride through rivers/rain with no problems while other users report it bricking after going through a small puddle.
Water damage is not covered under warranty so you're looking at a $400-800 repair, depending on if it's just the controller or the controller & battery that's damaged.
Best of luck.
Seems like there are some conditions (Won't cover any issues within first 45 days, water damage plan will cost more, used item warranty only lasts 2 years, they'll only cover as much as you paid for the item)
So, it COULD work depending on the condition of the Onewheel you purchase.
It's been a while since I created my account, but I want to say that I had to create separate accounts? What happens if you try using the same email but a different username? It may say something along the lines of "There is already a user tied to this account".
This is a late reply, but I got my V1 for $500 with only 26 miles on it. Just passed 800 miles on it and still on the Vega!
IMO getting another Onewheel for $500 is a STEAL. Especially if you'd want it as a secondary board for friends to ride. Just gotta be patient enough to find those really good deals.
Currently looking to get a lower mileage (<200) XR for $1000. It'll take time, but I've seen them around
FM did a livestream post announcement of Gemini. In it, they said that Mission is all zeros/default.
"From what I understand these three settings don't full encapsulate any of the modes as each mode has over 20 variables that need to be fine tuned to create the ride. You can affect one or more of these with each slider and as you change multiple maybe more as the combination of settings is what determines ride." - Another post about this same question
"Mission is my favourite, so smooth, like riding on a cloud"
"I am Delerium off-road, mission on."
"Delirium is way more responsive. Mission is more buttery"
"I switched back to Mission after riding Delirium almost exclusively. It's definitely less responsive but more in a smooth way, not a bad way. It feels more cruisey, like you're on a "mission". Delirium is straight up power and responsiveness, in the end, I switched back to Delirium but they both have their merits."
"The brakes are much more responsive on Delirium.. that's mostly why I ride in that mode. I should switch to Mission for range when I don't need all the torque though..."
"-delirium, more power usage for the maximum responsiveness
-mission, just as good."
"I ride Mission all the time only because I have a + and want the most range"
"D for quick acceleration and off road. M for buttery smoothness and cruising on road."
"I normally ride delirium all the time (on +). Extra torque but less mileage. Mission is better for flat paved paths and for distance IMO. Mission is fine for me at the paved beach along the paths. I was in mission today around town and it was struggling up hill I wont do that again. Delirium only except for beach runs."
Various quotes from Facebook post about this question!
Don't have any experience, but depending on how cold you're talking it might be that. Their website advises not to operate the OW below 32F. That said, people still ride around in the winter, but the colder it gets the weirder your OW will operate.

@readysetawesome I'm curious to hear about the overcharging shutdown with OW's because it seems actually like a quite common thing. Does going down a relatively big hill charger your OW up quickly? There's quite a steep hill about 200ft long near my house, and I use it to get to a bike trail. When I get my OW I don't want to go down the hill knowing that it could shut off depending on how close to 100% I am.
I don't own a OW (yet) and I didn't see any other posts about it, so I thought it'd be fun to hear of riders who ride in the winter/snow!
Lots of questions, but also feel free to talk about your experience in general!
I'm on the lookout for a OW, and I've been checking craigslist areas out of my state. I was thinking that I would go through PayPal when I find the right sale etc.
Does anyone think this is a bad idea?
How else can I (and the seller) make a safe/secure payment?
I obviously don't want to get scammed and I don't want the seller to be afraid of me.
