> That's a non-issue. You'd want to change the standard Dualtron folding handlebar to Xtasy anyway because it's not that good. Xtasy has way more space for gadgets and better locking mechanism. Dualtron 3 comes with Xtech brakes which suck as well - I know that because I had them on my Spider for a while. Fully hydraulic Magura is what you want - the installation is a pain in the balls, but in the end it's worth it, everyone who did it will confirm that. Thunder comes with Nutt hydraulic brakes, but Magura blows it out of the water.

Honestly, it's almost like you're trying to talk me out of buying another scooter at all. ;-)

> It's not. There's a reason why all Dualtrons (except X, my guess is rubber doesn't scale to it's size well) come with rubber suspension - it's really good. I had my reservations about it before I received my Spider, but 9 months and counting now - the suspension is excellent, like it was made for me.

Have you ridden a Speedway V or similar? I had what looks to be the same (single) rear "A5" shock on my Darknight and it seemed pretty good. Definitely superior to the undampend springs it had on the forks.

> Better build quality

Do you have any specific examples? Same motors, tires and wheels as the D3, same controller as the Spider presumably, same throttle, same brakes as the Spider, better folding mechanism than either of the Dualtrons.

> More maintenance friendly

The Speedway V has the same tires and wheels, with apparently the same motors. The deck looks easy enough to get at. Do you have any specific reasons for saying this?

> Better clearance

I'm mostly worried about scraping the deck over speed bumps in parking lots. At low speed. But that's probably actually a non-issue now that I think about it.

> Better quality batteries - LG or Panasonic cells

It's really not important to me. IF I ever had issues with the pack, which would have to be more defect related than cycle-life, replacing a battery pack really isn't that prohibitive. Two new motors can cost just as much. I've seen people on here claim that the battery is half the price, but that just isn't the case unless you're paying for reseller profits. Hit up Alibaba and look for 16s9p packs. Even LG doesn't hit that mark. The Sincpower batteries are rated for ≥ 1000 cycles at 100% DoD at 0.5C. That's about 56,000 miles (at 25Wh/mi) at a continuous ~700W. If I need to replace a pack to get another couple years out of a scooter that's 1) Easy, and 2) Still cheaper than buying a more expensive scooter.

> More mod friendly and more 3rd party parts available

Besides the $18 handlebar bag I've got, and maybe upgrading the brakes at some point, I'm not really interested.

u/Zerowantuthri · 1 pointr/ElectricScooters

Agreed on the full charge before riding it which will almost certainly take 6+ hours depending how much charge it has when it arrives.

The throttle has a variety of settings that make it work properly with the scooter (e.g. it knows how to properly assess distance ridden and battery power and so on). My Zero 10x came with a sheet spelling it out. As it happened, RevRides, who I bought it from, had already made the settings but something to check (once set correctly you never want to mess with them).

There are also a few user changeable settings for the ride you want such as how strong the regen braking is, how much torque it'll give on acceleration, miles or kilometer display and so on. I went with middle-of-the-road settings myself but this is all a matter of user preference so know they are there and fiddle with them till you get it all as you want. NOTE: I was encouraged to leave auto-pilot off till I became experienced with the scooter which I did.

Know that this is lightyears more powerful than the Lime scooter. Give it some respect when you first start riding. Leave it in Mode 1 (of three) "low" speed setting, only one motor active, Eco on and have a whirl. You'll get used to it quickly but the torque and acceleration can be surprising. Top speed too once you engage higher speed modes.

Also, and maybe this was just mine, but I find the brakes to be really touchy. Like they grab pretty hard even with a light touch which wants to throw me forward. No accidents or anything but at 60 miles ridden the brakes are still touchy on mine and a bit uncomfortable (read jerky when first applied). Just something to watch out for till you get used to it. I hope it is just a matter of breaking them in some more and/or getting more used to modulating them properly. That or perhaps my local bike shop can lighten them up a bit (bicycle brakes so they are familiar with them).

I have found no reason to carry a charger with me. These charge up pretty slowly so charging on the go won't get you much compared to some smaller scooters. Leave a charger at the office and one at home and you should be fine. It has a pretty long range so should be good for most jaunts on a single charge. Of course YMMV depending on your needs and use.

As for locking it up realize you are parking $1500 on the street and this will catch people's eyes. Cable locks are close to worthless (they can be gotten through with a hand-held, concealable tool in seconds). After much looking and asking I settled on Master Lock Cuffs. I clamp one end to the stem, below the control cables and the other to the bike rack. It will stop anyone unless they go at it with an angle grinder (which some might but not likely in public during the day). I am getting a handlebar bag where I will carry it but till then they are fine in my backpack (a little heavy but no biggie). Nothing is perfect but these are pretty good.


u/DelightfulChapeau · 1 pointr/ElectricScooters

Thanks! I'll look into BikeLink!

Yes, it's both the weight and the dimensions. The Dart has a really spacious deck. Nice for riding, a bit awkward for maneuvering. I hear ewheels is coming out with trolley wheels soon. That may help a bit, but I still think it's too large to take in most places. It's fine for stairs at home --> to work, though. Certainly not something I'll be stashing under the table at a restaurant like I did with the Glion.

Wheels are mostly covered, so locking through them is out with any serious lock. I got StreetCuffs based on somebody's recommendation here, and I think they'll work out well enough. I think the best place to lock will be around the little neck between the deck and the actual pole, right around where the foot pedal to fold is. If I fold it up, it would be impossible to even unfold the thing with the cuffs on. A U-Lock could work in this area as well.

These are the StreetCuffs:

I didn't get the rapid charger. It does take awhile to charge, but so far the battery has lasted as much as I've needed it to in a day and I'm content to just let it charge overnight.

Good luck with whatever you choose! I really do love the Dart - if you can find a way to live around the size, it is a fantastic ride for the price!

u/1111joey1111 · 1 pointr/ElectricScooters

The MegaWheels S1 may not support your weight very well. I think it has a recommended cut-off weight of about 150lbs.

It's not a bad little scooter if you're just travelling 2-3 miles on smooth roads and if you don't weigh much. It's perfect for someone just wanting to get around campus. Folds quickly and easily. It's going to get loose really quickly around the folding mech/front wheel, but that's normal. It's pretty tough, just don't go off curbs and be very careful of potholes. It has very small wheels. It's not really in the same class of scooter that's a few hundred more, but it might serve your purpose. You're probably only going to get about 7-10mph and about 3-4 miles range. So, take your charger with you.

Xprit makes a somewhat decent scooter for around $265. But, you might want to look for a deal on a Xiaomi m365 or maybe a clone of it.

This is what the Xprit scooter looks like, but this one is the same scooter by a different company. So if you search eBay for Xprit scooter, just look for the one that looks like this (it's the same thing, only without built in speakers).

There's also the Swagtron (but it has issues, read the reviews)...

Depending on your needs I think you'd be better off saving your money and getting a scooter that's around $350-$650.

u/ArmadaZero · 9 pointsr/ElectricScooters

Ok...didn't realize I had to add a comment to add text to an image post. Anyway...

Long story short: first time I rode, I slipped and fell and had nasty road rash. The ignition on my scooter was fucked and I was in recovery for about 2 weeks.

Photos of my injuries when they were fresh, click at your own risk:

Here we are weeks after, everything has healed completely except for my shoulder and wrist. I sprained the shit out of it apparently. I bought some gear to keep me protected and this is what I use:

Knee/shin guards:

Elbow guards:



After doing some errands on the scooter today, two things I've realized: riding for a while really takes a toll on your legs, mostly calves and your hands really cramp up after a while (3+ hours). When I had the accident, I was going 20mph and while I was riding today, I realized why I fell. The speed never went down because with the Emove cruiser, if you hold the throttle for a while, it automatically activates cruise control. I figured out you can just turn it off by pressing the throttle twice but still, better late than never. Also I got a little too confident and went to the second mode instead of just staying on the first. I rode today strictly on the first mode and everything went smoothly. My only complaint is how stupid hot it gets where I live and I was drenched in sweat by the end of the day

Edit: I forgot to mention the smaller things I've attached to the scooter

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/Low_Alch · 9 pointsr/ElectricScooters

Hey OP. Friendly neighborhood lockpicker here. I pick locks as a hobby and keep up with the security of a lot of the locks that are released. I also recently got a ninebot and therefore wanted a U-lock for it as well. The kryptonite lock you suggested here is actually a good one. I'd avoid the master lock cuffs posted above, master locks are notoriously shit and those cuffs are actually one of the better ones from them, but they're still shit. And I'd never get the last one you posted, I've never even heard of it and you'd likely be paying $20 to get your scooter stolen. As a general rule of thumb, if you care about something, you should care about spending the money for a good lock for it. That being said, here's the lock I decided on for my scooter: I'd suggest that one or one of the other similar ones in that line. The kryptonite one you posted is likely still good, but I know that kryptonite used plastic covers over the lock body of some of their bike locks that could be destroyed with a heat gun or blow torch to easily open the lock. The one I suggested is all metal. Good luck with your lock needs.

u/kubernutz · 1 pointr/ElectricScooters

I used this [solid tire ](OTBBA Solid Tire Replacement for... to replace my rear wheel after it was punctured. (Alternatively, you could buy a [solid wheel already on a rim](GAGAMO Wheel Hub and... and save yourself a lot of effort.)

I put some water in a pot on a stove and heated it until boiling, and poured it into a bucket with the tire in it.

I let it sit for 20 minutes and took it out. It should be warm but not too warm to handle. It may have some white marks like rubber stretching, and there'll be a rubber smell.

I ziptied through one of the tire's holes and through the wheel rim and tightened so they stayed together as I worked around the wheel. With a good amount of effort, I used these [tire irons](Dr.Roc Tire Spoon Lever Iron Tool... to put the the tire on the rim, not worrying about the tire properly seating in the rim. Once the tire is around the rim, use a closed pair of scissors to put through the tire holes and pry up to allow a tire iron scrape under and pull the tire to seat properly.

I did this only with my rear tire and haven't had tire problems since.

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/OnanationUnderGod · 3 pointsr/ElectricScooters

I figured out how to change the tires pretty easily. You can take the tube out with the tire lever; this is the easy part.

To put the tire back on, first put the valve through the hole. Then, use the clamps and the tire iron (or possibly start with the tire levers) to do the rest. Clamp it as far as you can on each side (1/3rd to 1/2th the tire clamped in place) and keep moving the tire into position with two tools very close to each other starting close to the clamps. When you make some progress, put a new clamp into position. I had to use the tire irons for the last part as it's extremely tight. **You won't be able to go straight for putting the rest of the tire on, you have to do it bit by bit from the clamps.

u/Slayblaze · 2 pointsr/ElectricScooters

True, it is quite interesting. One thing about it is that generally speaking I ride as if nobody even sees me (in other words extremely defensively) and if I am riding around on that premise, then why would I need to signal - assuming no one even sees me to begin with..?

Now I don't want to make it seem as if I'm *trying* to not be seen, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact I use the built-in headlights/tailights on my scooter as daytime running lights, as well as an extremely super-bright aftermarket headlight as well as *two* rear aftermarket tail lights with turn signals and yes I actually have all of those installed just so I can be seen!

But.... I still drive with the assumption that most drivers are not looking for me, because that is in fact the unfortunate truth.

u/CurviestOfDads · 3 pointsr/ElectricScooters

I was eyeing this, which are supposedly pretty good if you can find a way to mount them, as seen here on this Zero 8: (it looks like they use this to mount it)

u/cynycal · 1 pointr/ElectricScooters

I was just looking at these tires and they mention a helpful video, FWIW. On a Minipro board one guy said something about using cheap mini bike tools and zip ties. That's all I got--hardly sage, but I mean well. :)

u/AberrantRambler · 1 pointr/ElectricScooters

I personally grabbed an ES2 and then got a used battery kit for $75 from eBay (I mostly care about the torque, not the range; but the battery I got ended up being in good condition)

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

u/Clutch_Johnson · 1 pointr/ElectricScooters

You're right, that's what makes Reddit great - people can weigh in with their opinions and have a nice discussion on a variety of topics.

Where I take issue is when a user presents an opinion followed immediately by "don't listen to opinions that are different from mine." ("don't listen to the negative reviews")

In that case I WILL jump in because, like it or not, the data shows a very different picture and OP should read it before making a purchasing decision.

Very happy with both so far. The lock seems quite heavy duty and the price is decent. I haven't locked it up very much and if I do it's only for short periods.

u/mubbythelarge · 1 pointr/ElectricScooters

I just finished a rear tire change myself for the first time. A few things that helped me that I picked up from various youtube videos:

I used quick-grip clamps to compress the tire and keep it in the wheel on the opposite side I'm working on. I placed 2 clamps aligned with the spokes on either side of the valve, and worked on the other side so I don't accidentally damage the valve with my efforts. I have clamps like these:

I lubed the tire bead edge and wheel rim with WD-40. It still took a lot of force to get the final section of bead over the rim, but the lube really helped. My first attempts at taking off the tire ended up with my old set of plastic levers snapping. Had to make a trip to the local bike store to get a new set of nylon tire levers with steel core. The ones I found were made by Specialized. They did a great job (tires were still stubborn but came off and on).

u/beyondthetech · 1 pointr/ElectricScooters

Normally, the weight limit recommendation is directly related to the amount of power it will consume to move the scooter, so the battery usage and maximum range will be affected as a result of that. However, you also have to consider whether or not the frame can handle the additional weight.

That being said, I would more recommend a scooter that has a stronger frame, less welded parts, or just one that specifically states it can accommodate a higher weight limit.

That being said, the Glion Dolly has a max rider limit of 255 lbs. and the Uberscoot is at 265 lbs.

Bought this during prime day. Have used it with my Galaxy S10 on both bike and electric scooter without issue.

Has quick release spring clamp for short rides. And you can use elastic bands in addition to the clamp to secure for longer rides.

u/Anouk69 · 2 pointsr/ElectricScooters

I bought two things:

  1. Anti-theft alarm (motion alarm) with remote. Loud AF. It's a cheap noise-making mechanism to deter thieves fwiw
  2. A high strength rated Abus U-lock (or d-lock)

    Videos for usage:

  • A few other measures
  • Using a u-lock (or d-lock)

    I don't like leaving it unattended for long periods and take it with me where I can to stow it in a corner somewhere. But for quick runs here & there it's been fine.

I got this one and it works well

Slime 2045-A Metal Valve Extenders, 1-1/4"

u/bane_rista · 1 pointr/ElectricScooters

I got this as a scooter lock and it's working great for my M365.

I didn't want to put anything through the back tire because I didn't think anything would be strong enough, nor did I want to risk any damage to the brake disc. I hook it in a U-shape through my motor/brake cables, surrounding the lower part of the stem.

The small size is too small to slip the front wheel through, and it forces a tight fit against whatever you're securing it to. Locking it through the cables also means that if someone does manage to get it unsecured, they have to cut the motor cables, rendering it a very heavy kick scooter.

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.
