Clicking Noise from Wheel(s)

Symptoms: Clicking Noise from either Rear or Front Wheels

Diagnosis: Normal noise from bearing(s)

The Cure: Keep on Riding! The reply from Boosted to one of the Reddit community members was this: “Sounds like you've got a clicking bearing, it's nothing to worry about, I have one on my own board too. I know the sound can be a bit surprising, but it's a benign issue that isn't causing any accelerated wear or damage. I've found mine has gotten quieter over time. One trick that can help quiet it up is to loosen the axle nut 1/8-1/4 of a turn, this helps relieve pressure on the bearings.” (Reference Link)
