>>1576001I shit on scooterfags a lot but that thing honestly looks like it would be really fun to ride around when you're drunk.REALLY fun. Especially considering some go 50mph. Now if only they didn't cost twice as much as my motorbike...
take the float pill
>>1576335>>1576341I used to ride a folder and people would always ask about it when I was locking up. But they were very polite about it
>>1576001good on you. i rode one awhile ago. I'm not gonna go and buy one. but it was pretty fun.
>riding escooter>going down hill on two way bike lane>two teenage girls coming other way>pull a wheelie as I go past for fun>girl shouts "you a fackin pedo or sumfin?">ride away

>>1578233not everyone has 7000 USD to spend on a 100lb scooter with the lights from an eastern European brothel
>>1576335I once had some urban youths throw a shoe at me, taken off of his own foot. It landed about 50 feet behind me, did to my incredible speed
>>1576502I used to shit on scooterfags and write them off as fags and soys until a group of us started fucking about with some hire ones after a night out in the summer. Then I realised it's actually a great laugh and eventually ended up buying one a month or so later and use it for almost everything now. Haven't used public transport, hire bikes or spent anything on travel in months now. Probably wouldn't have bothered though if I didn't have a decent cycle path network where I live though, if it was just for roads only don't think it'd be worth it or as enjoyable dodging cars and having cagers constantly trying to cut past you. It's great at night though to just ride around with empty roads and no pedestrians, it's then you can really appreciate what they're good for.
Getting a scooter was one of the best purchases I made this year.I thought they were total fag mobiles at first, but they're surprisingly fun to ride and very fast. Best part about them is that they're door to door transportation, which makes them really damn fast.Haven't touched public transportation ever since I bought it and the scoot already paid itself back in bus fares.Problem is that my current scooter has only 40km range on a good day and a 350W motor. Doesn't have enough torque to go up the hills fast and that kills the average speed.Pic related has 2 x 1000W motors. Should reach 100km range or even more and do about 60km/h on flats. Costs only €1100 too so not bad at all.
>>1578625Should have picked it up and rode off.
>>1576001I overtook you yesterday on my new e bike haha faggot
>>1579800Let's see you stow your ebike away under your desk at work...
>>1576001you will get robbed
>>1579800No way your ebike takes any dual motor scooter on the straight. I would smoke you for breakfast.
Got utterly destroyed today by a guy on a e-bike with fat tyres. Feels bad man. He was an absolute unit and was spinning like a madman and then ran a red light lmao.
>>1581783What were you riding? No way I let some asshole beat me on my scooter sitting down.
>>1579083going 30mph on a busy street on that is akin to jumping off a bridge
>>1576001At least not Xiaomi/Segway. >>1581262This foldable shit is inconvinient AF. Scooter folds in 1 ns, and it is not awkward to stand with it, while this shit will want to fuck off somewhere else.
>>1576335>half banned me>cant make my ownThat's not how it works, retarded newfag.
>>1582658Not him but i can scoot from my house all the way downtown to work and i’d say 90% is on paved bike trails
>>1582671you calling me a lier faggot?that's exactly what's happened to memy Ip range is banned specifically pol won't let me post images and I am not allowed to create threads on any board from any device I always get the your ip range has been banned message.so yeah it looks like I am half bannedyou new new fag
>>15826714chan dosent even tell me what abuse I've supposedly done.this is me trying to make a thread.
>>1583298It's possible that you didn't do anything wrong and you have some other jackass to thank for getting your IP range banned.
>>1576001Good on you man, The Zero 9 is a good commuter. When you do get the chance, you should try out those with dual motors. They are ludicrous but fun as hell.
E bikes are a fucking con, e scooters are much more reasonably priced
OP here, just got home. Shit is fun as fuck. See ya later bikefags
>>1586947>can't into rotate pic>disgusting, cluttered garagescootfags gonna scoot
>>1579800 lycrafag can't handle my swag. Nice get though
>>1576502The one time I was drunk and going back home on mine I got lost and almost went on the fucking highway and had to do a 180 almost into another carScared me straight alright
Some of these seated e-scooters in china are insane, i saw a guy on youtube pushing like 80kmh on one wearing no protection save for a helmet
>>1576001go ahead faggot, i'm not going to as long as you leave your parents' basement
never buy Soflow. that shit may be decent and cheap at first and you don't have to worry about flats but if there's a fucking small rock in the street and you don't see it and run it over it can fuck up the alignment of the airless tubeless front tire and unlike Xiaomi or other brands of escooters fixing it isn't easy and there's pretty much no tutorials out there on fixing it. It's proprietary bullshit and you have to send it to one of the Soflow exclusive repair centers just for the front tire. Good luck if you can't find your damn receipt so you can waste your warranty for just the front tire. I have an iFixit kit and that was enough to take everything apart but fixing that damn airless tubeless front tire is going to be a pain in the ass. Save yourself from my pain and buy Xiaomi instead. The repairs are much simpler. Never buy cheap proprietary escooters at Fry's Electronics. Online is your best bet even if you have to wait a few days or weeks for it to show up.
>>1576340yikes. mostly it's homeless people and niggers in NorCal that see your bike and want it. they literally need to just fuck off but >NorCaleveryone on the street wants a damn bike. I once had my fancy Schwinn street cruiser/mountain hybrid bike and these homeless people were constantly bugging me over my 200 dollar Target bike. Was fucking annoying. Next time bring a bat and bash their head in if they ask you about your bike.
>>1576335next time bring a gun and tell them to shut the fuck up about your damn bike. It's YOURS not THEIRS. You just want to ride in peace. They can go be bike stealing niggers somewhere else.
You know what is interesting? I don't get the same reaction for having an electric scooter that I had when I was riding my bike. Sure people would ask questions and want to buy one themselves sometimes but there's not really many people that would actually go out of their way to steal one or want yours. You just ride it to the store and almost no one bugs you most likely because an electric scooter has to be charged regularly and depending on the brand repairing it is not as easy as a bike.
>>1576001Report one year later OP. I think e-scooters are the future because they are foldable, fast and affordable, but I'm worried about how long they last and how hard or expensive it is to repair them.
>>1576001where do you lock it? Do you just carry it around everywhere like an autist?
>>1594331I've had a Xiaomi m365 since December 2017, still running just fine, battery is a bit weaker, but it might be that I've got more hills in my way now Changed the tires a couple of times, make sure they're well full before I use it for more than a couple Km, that's about it Tighten up the screws from time to time as well
>>1594778In total, don't think I've spent more than 100-120 bucks on repairs for it
When riding an e-scooter, the law says you have to be on the road close to the curb. How the fuck do I make a left-hand turn? Do I stop at the corner and ride along the crosswalks?
>>1578625Dipshits in civics keep throwing eggs at me on climbs (it's happened twice now, on the same segment too.)
>>1577057kek. Fuck them, I bet they were borderline retarded anyway
>>1576001Today I watched a person pay 144 dollars for two flat repairs for these things. More evidence that the owners battery operated scooters are dumb.
>>1594842Lrn2 hook turn, fagoot>>1587351wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
>>1594853I feel you, I keep running out of eggs.
>>1596706No, that's just proof people with zero technical knowledge or skills are always going to be retards and get ripped off. It's no different from people with cars that don't have a clue even about the most basic shit like how to change a wheel or dead bulb so get ripped off when they pay someone to do it. Unless it's some major fuck up with the electronics I could fix anything that goes wrong with mine and made sure of that before I brought a decent scooter.
question for all you bikefags and scootfags: how do you transport your groceries, shopping, etc?
>>1597414bikefag here, racks obviouslydunno about scooterfags, I don't think anyone goes grocery shopping on those but you could just use a big backpack I guess
>>1597414Scooterfag here, I use a large bag. Can easily get a weekly shop in there. You can get baskets and small bag attachments but they look awful and can be expensive so I'd recommend using a bag instead, preferably one with good back support if you're thinking about moving around a lot of things in it.
>>1597414With a car. Unless you're poor or a faggot.
