because Xiaomi just flooded the market with these new scooters and 3 different companies started buying them up and slapping their logo on them. You can buy those scooters on amazon for $500 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076KKX4BC

This scooter only came out at the beginning of the year and it is the first electric scooter to be imported to the US in mass numbers

u/NDoilworker · 26 pointsr/sanfrancisco

I'm a fan. You can buy one yourself for 500$ apparently the company was trying to keep the manufacturer a secret but here it is:

> rapando todos os patinetes estacionados

Em local irregular (de acordo com a lei).

Só que a maneira que eles estão recolhendo é bizarra: frequentemente eles pegam o patinete e arremessam para dentro de uma caçamba de caminhão, de qualquer jeito. Porque o patinete só destrava via aplicativo.

Imagine um veículo como este sendo arremessado como se fosse um saco de areia.

No Twitter tem alguns vídeos mostrando essas remoções. Muito diferente das mostradas nos telejornais, diga-se de passagem.

Com isso, o patinete acaba sofrendo avarias severas, ficando quase que inutilizado.

A empresa responsável pelos patinetes estima uma perda de 400 patinetes. Supondo que eles custaram cerca de R$ 1800 talqueis...

You can get the Chinese Spyware version on amazon for cheaper. I've considered doing the same thing, but I worry about all of the dumbasses who will vandalize it either accidentally or intentionally

u/maximusthered · 9 pointsr/washingtondc

99% sure they’re the same model, which was also available on Amazon for $500 a while back before they sold out

Edit: looks like they’re back on Amazon for $600 now:

I purchased my electric scooter (first paycheck) at the start of Summer 2018, and before that, was that guy on a kick scooter. The climate for electric scooters on campus went from what I could tell was me and another dude I saw once every month, to now seeing at least 3 every day.

I fear that what was once mild amusement to people now will become hatred when millions are everywhere and half the people scooting around purchased one have no idea what common courtesy is and attempt scootihicular pedestrianslaughter on the sidewalks, souring public opinion. Worrying premonitions aside, I can not say enough about how much I love my scooter to get around. It's the perfect combination of vehicle, where you don't have to worry about storing it like a bike, or if you never gained the magical skills to not die on a longboard/skateboard, a pretty easy to use ride. I use mine everyday and it does a good job. If you can use a longboard/skateboard those are very good options for pretty cheap human propelled transportation that are very popular, although I'll always have a soft spot for the A5 Lux Kick Scooter I used to roll around with. Brakes are neat, yo!

As for which scooter to get, I'm not up with the scooter times, but I use the Segway ES1 I purchased at Sam's Club for $350. Judging by the fact I've never actually seen another one of those out on campus (If you see a dude on one of these, probably wearing flip-flops, feel free to wave hello, say hi, and not hate me, I try to be as courteous as possible to other pedestrians/cyclists!), gonna go out on a limb and say they are no longer for sale at Sam's Club. However what I have seen on campus are the Xiaomi Mi or maybe this go trax thing. Can't speak for those at all, but they sure are popular.

The electric scooter market is pretty cheap, with the prices being low, but with the quality being low as well. There was literally like two options when I got mine, with the one I did get being sold off on clearance, but now with the explosion in this segment, the skies the limit, maybe.

Overall, the utility of an electric scooter is a great value for what they cost, and I'd happily answer any questions you've got. Also, yes I am a bit of a electric scooter nut/loser, if this thesis of a post is anything to go by.

u/[deleted] · 9 pointsr/ElectricScooters

Honestly, get an M365 like 90% of us on here. It's a solid scooter, lightweight, foldable, and cheap. You can always upgrade, but it checks all the boxes for most of us. There are certainly faster scooters with better range. But for the price, I don't think it's worth it. I love how light the M365 is and you simply don't get additional range without additional weight/battery. If someone can point me to something that rivals the M365 at that pricepoint, I'm all ears.

u/broserotops · 7 pointsr/ElectricScooters

I noticed that too on Amazon. I checked the price history using camelcamelcamel and you can see that they periodically jack the price way up for a short amount of time and then slam it back down. I've noticed some price creep like this before on amz but nothing with such huge changes.

I think if you wait a short while it'll go back down.

u/JoshPastnerIsMyDad · 7 pointsr/Atlanta

I think scooter skill and etiquette will improve with time. You still have a lot of people riding them for the first time to try them out.

Side note, does anyone have one of these and know how to lock them to bike racks? I'm passively interested in one but the inability to lock them seems devastating.

u/iamkenthomas · 4 pointsr/Sacramento
u/stairmast0r · 4 pointsr/ElectricScooters

I'm guessing you're in the US since you're referencing FFR. What's your current scooter? I don't normally join circlejerks, but the Xiaomi M365 is a pretty good value and it's below your budget at $379 right now on Amazon. Pneumatic tires will provide better grip and ride quality than solid tires, and if you keep the pressure up high enough (depends on your weight, but around 50 PSI), flats are not that big of an issue. The stem wobble is also better in recently produced units, and if it ever gets bad you can buy cheap rubber dampers to tighten it back up.

u/username868 · 4 pointsr/vancouver

Not sure if this is the one you’re looking for but when it was in stock I think it was like $600?

You download an app and it's like 15 cents mile or something. But they are everywhere downtown. Thousands littered all on sidewalks. It's crazy.

u/kubed_zero · 4 pointsr/sanfrancisco
u/thatsmytrunks · 3 pointsr/sanantonio

I ended up buying one of the models that Bird uses (M365 here) and have been in love with it. I use it as my main source of transportation now, and it gets me anywhere I need to go in the city.

I think with time the Public opinion on these will change as they're so much cheaper and energy efficient than cars for small trips.

u/vikramdesh1 · 3 pointsr/washingtondc
u/BonesIIX · 3 pointsr/boston

I have the same scooter that Bird uses and use it for daily commute. If you're not overweight (275+) you should be fine on slight hills and such.

I am above that weight limit and still have enough juice to do about 5 miles daily on a single charge.

I use it to get from Rosi village to Forest Hills and then the reverse commute is North Station to South Station and then Forest Hills to home.

It feels much safer and more comfortable riding in bike lanes than sidewalks, cars are not much of an issue I've found, traffic is usually slower than me eve ant 15-16.5mph


The biggest issue is fixing a patch if you pop a tire. Just take the wheel to a bike shop with a new inner tube (they sell thicker ones on amazon too) - costs about $15 to fix a flat. The reason I dont say DIY is cause it's a fucking PAIN to get the tire back on.


All in all, I love how it's modified my commute. I have done the full North Station to Roslindale commute (9mi in about 55min) went from full charge to 20%, but again, I'm a big guy so you have to think about that when considering distance. 3 miles you should be able to do in 20-25min no problem.

Grab a jump bike.

Although given that you’d have a bike lanes the whole way, the scooter can work and the Xiaomi M365 that bird used in gen 1 scooters is only $350 on Amazon.

Get an electric bike or scooter.

Go from your apartment to Caltrain(5 minutes).

Get off at Sunnyvale (10-15 minutes depending on which train you catch).

Scoot to Moffett (10 minutes).

Grab one of these or an ebike

u/requiem_mn · 2 pointsr/electricvehicles

Finally, something I can contribute to here. I recently bought Xiami M365 e-scooter (cost me 425€, here is Amazon link, not how I bought it). I think I have it for a month or two. I logged around 270 km so far. I use it from home to train station, then I use train to city I work in, and then from train station to work. Its something like 2.5 km in each city in each direction. Advantage is that it is relatively light and compact (12.5 kg and the handle folds). It goes up to 25 kmh, battery is specified as making 30 km if you are 75 kg person. It can only carry one person of up to 100 kg, but I believe that even heavier person can use it, especially if you change type of tires.

Now, my impressions, it is perfect for me. I can bring it both to my office, and to my apartment (elevator not working, still not too much hustle). I can bring charger with me anywhere to add some extra mileage from it. It can be stored in car trunk (I was able to put it in trunk of Opel Corsa D, rather small car), thou I would avoid this if it is too hot and sunny outside. It is on a cheaper side, so it does have some problems, but nothing too serious, especially if you are familiar with bikes (changing of tire and staff like that).

Also, now, my whole daily is electrified in a country that usually has 55% electricity generation from renewables, which is nice.

Video that I found to be fair review is this one.

Since I'm guessing you are from states, here are some conversions:

12.5 kg = 27.5 lbs

75 kg = 165 lbs

100 kg = 220 lbs

2.5 km = 1.5 mile

25 kmh = 15.5 mph

30 km = 18.5 miles

425 € = 480 $

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Pretty sure Bird and Scoot use this scooter from Xiaomi. I've been debating between buying this or a Boosted Board vs just Ubering it to my office from the Caltrain.

Lime I think makes their own scooter. Their scooter seriously sucks when it comes to handling bumps on the road.

here's a novel idea if you're only concerned about commuting around DTLA. You know those bird/lime scooters with a 15mph top speed?

Get this, you can buy your own one for $500 here. Cruising around on one of the through SM was almost as much fun as my motorcycle.

Other than that I agree with what the other guys said. Your issue isn't a motorcycle issue, it's a lack of ABS issue. If you get yourself a bike with ABS you can just grab a fistful or brake and it won't buck you off, no need to worry about the details.

u/hamdmamd · 1 pointr/bikecommuting

Here both are allowed in the bicycle lane. I think helmet (bicycle helmet) is mandatory. They're essentially electric mopeds.

Compare it to the commercially available version of the Scooter that Bird uses.

https://www.amazon.com/Xiaomi-Electric-Long-range-Fold-n-Carry-Ultra-Lightweight/dp/B076KKX4BC

​

Statement based on this: https://qz.com/1257198/xiaomi-makes-the-bird-and-spin-scooters-taking-over-san-francisco/

​

They both have the same wattage motor and similar battery capacity (I think).

​

Bird does have larger wheels (8 inches, pneumatic, compared to 6 inch solid), so in ideal conditions, it's top speed is theoretically going to be slightly higher, but in practical use, they are going to operate similarly.

​

The Bird version is heavier. It has some functionality to reclaim some lost energy, so battery will likely last longer. It also has app functionality.

​

The Mi is $649, and the Voyager Ion is $200+.

u/Hobbits_armpit · 1 pointr/cycling

> if motorists, cyclists, & scooter people knew & obeyed the laws of their own conveyance & respected those of the others', we'd be safe & content.

Can I have some of what you're on? Belgium might be run by sane people, but Australia certainly isn't, and I won't mention the current US administration, as transport is a state issue.

Obedience to laws only makes sense when the laws do.

The rules are frequently written by people who are only interested in pandering to the whims of large voting groups. And if that happens to result in the deaths of an "out" group, those large voting groups are perfectly OK with that. The laws in Australia, for example, with its shitty the bicycle infrastructure, will kill you if you follow the rules. This is why they are broken all the time. The infrastructure and to a smaller degree good social norms, are vastly more important.

Personally, I'm not a fan of electric scooters and I really loathe these sorry excuses for transport. I have come to the conclusion that I hate them not because they are particularly dangerous, but because they are just so amazingly uncool. Like someone wearing a a bright pink jacket and green velvet pants. It's not harming me, but, oh god, please, just... stop....

u/Killcraft69 · 1 pointr/ElectricScooters

I seem to be very unlucky with my electric vehicles. I truley do ride them carefully, when I go over bigger bumps i kinda pull up so the tires dont take a big hit and I take smooth roads and stay on bike paths, I never ride it in the rain even though technically I could. I have had an es2 break on me, an acton blink quatro( A $1700 BOARD) break so consistently that it spent more time in SF getting fixed than in my possession. Luckily I am kind of a pain in the ass about getting refunds so I haven't taken a financial hit from these I do take a mental hit when I have to spend hours on the line with tech support and customer service. I just want something that won't break under very normal operating procedures. the m365 seems to be the right one cause there are so many people that own them. I did already purchase the X7 now just cause I need it for transport and the initial answer I got was meh. I'm taking a chance on this one mainly cause the specs are more what I am looking for. Also I would but the xaomi pro if it was on amazon. my es2 refund just came through and it was given as amazon credit which I requested cause it would mean zero processing time and I did need a new one asap. If you're curious I can let you know how it is in a few months or if this one breaks on me too. In that case I would just buy a xaomi once and for all. The current listing on amazon is very odd though It is sold by xaomi but the different buying options weirds me out
