  1. This thread, where someone was attacked while riding, affected my thoughts on safety and self protection. Whether riding or walking, all of us may have encountered unpleasant people and animal interactions. It's best to avoid being placed in those compromised situations. Living in a large city, riding in new areas, and being responsible for protecting others will inevitably create an unpleasant encounter. How would you respond? I don't know the answer to that myself. I can only prepare mentally, physically and emotionally. A martial arts training has helped my confidence and skills, as I continue to age. So I have given more thought to that preparation as I ride my Segway MiniPro in Chicago. There are places that I should not travel at any time. However cautious I may be, it's responsible to be constantly aware. Especially more so, as I have become more mobile and potentially more vulnerable. Therefore, some preparation is required to live safely in a modern city. Cane Martial Arts is one way that fits the Mini and EUC transporter rider in everyday life. ➰
  2. Anyone have pictures of their light mods for the mini/mini-pro? here is my ugly, but very functional mod. The headlight does put the slightest imbalance that causes the mini to roll forward sometimes i will counter weight it shortly. Uses an extra light i had sitting around, a Klarus G20 with Keeppower 26650 6500mAh battery. It has quite a wide beam which really help to see all road and and imperfections such as dips even in the darkest conditions. I rarely use it on high though. It is also a handy 3rd hand when i need a light digging into my pack or something. The attachment is quite ugly and if the mini tips forward the light bezel is the first thing that makes contact with the ground. It's SS so not much of an issue, but i may put a rubber protector on it. Only used it for a couple of weeks, and only a couple days as a permanent mount shown here. The tail tight is just a cheap big tail light mounted with typical bicycle rubber strap mount. I leave it in a flashing mode. Another cheap Cyrolite Hotshot Micro tail lamp is on my helmet now.
  3. I have seen videos of MiniPro riders with selfie sticks and none, so far, from an aerial view using a drone. I wonder if anyone else is considering experimenting with a video recording using both the MiniPro and drone? ➰
  4. Great deal! $399 for a refurbished MiniPro Segway miniPRO Personal Transporter (Certified Refurbished) https://sport.woot.com/offers/segway-minipro-personal-transporter-8
  5. Hi all, For those who are Amazon Prime members, the Segway MiniPro costs only $499 for the next 24-30 hours during the "Prime Day" sales going on this week. You can sign up for the service as a trial member for 30 days and start ordering immediately. BTW, it is possible to be a Prime member and order from the US site even if one lives outside the US (I have done it for many years). Some items can be shipped outside the US, although this item can only be delivered to a US address, so you will need a contact, friend or mail forwarding company to assist you.
  6. I was wondering what fw most people here prefer to run. I'm on 3.5.1 on app iOS and 1.1.7 on the Minipro. Kinda happy with it, was hoping it would run a bit faster than 18kmh. I got it to 18,5kmh want to get 20kmh which I think would be the ideal maximum speed on the Minipro. I downgraded mine from 3.8.2 iOS and 1.2.8 Minipro to 3.5.1 iOS and 1.1.7 Minipro thanks to Alexander's way, just drove 1.2.8 for 2km. It was a bit slower uphill and it kept on beeping all the time. I've tried 3.8.2 iOS and 1.4.0 Minipro, not so much beeping, but not as fast as 1.1.7. I just want some other opinions on what would be the best combo.
  7. Hi, Has anyone tried the Hybrid Tires for the MiniPro sold by ninebot/MoreForMini in the US? Looking for comments on using this tire as a general replacement for the stock tire. How does it compare on Asphalt, concrete, gravel, dirt? I've heard the Off-Road tire was OK on some terrain, but also makes the one issue with the two wheel devices of the two tires meeting different resistance (due to terrain or obstacles) more serious. Thanks!
  8. Get them while they are hot. Segway miniPRO Smart Self Balancing Personal Transporter with Mobile App Control http://amazon.com/gp/product/B019Z6HS86/
  9. I recently got a Segway MiniPro, and the wife and I love it, but the knee bar is a tad high for my tastes at the lowest setting. Additionally, my kids had a Swagtron hoverboard, but despite meeting the prerequisite minimum weigh requirements, that thing vibrates like hell because they are a bit too light for it. If I have my older daughter where a backpack with about 15 pounds worth of books in it, she can ride it just fine and enjoys it (and she's 20 lbs over the minimum weight requirement). They love these sort of devices, but the Segway MiniPro seems so much more stable and safe than the hoverboards, and I tested and my kids are able to make it go forward and backwards perfectly despite being under the minimum weight. If the knee bar was shorter, they'd be able to use it perfectly. Does there exist a shorter knee bar for it, either third party or official? If not, has anyone come up with any mods of this nature? I don't really understand why Segway/Ninebot are so against kids riding their products when there are far more dangerous things out there kids are riding (hoverboards, skateboards, roller skates, etc.) Thanks!
  10. In the MiniPro pamphlet these are described as "decorative blades". Where do they go?
  11. Purchase my MiniPro on Black Friday From Amazon, had it on the following Monday. Completed the tutorial up until the 10m ride part indoors a couple of days later. Today I took it outside, it made me repeat the tutorial from the beginning, but it was quick enough except a pain to have to be holding the iPhone. I later turned off the Auto-Lock which is what I should have done earlier. It was cold to have to have my bare ands to manipulate the phone, The good news is no Spills!! did one ride of 2.x km around a little turnabout for a small subdivision, but road there along a short gravel road and there was an incline and it all went smooth. Took it out again for a longer right I drove it on the side of the road for 1km or so to a larger parking lot for more practice. Added another 5.x km to the distance for a total of 7.7km. I'm pretty happy with it the MiniPro for my first real ride. Everything was very easy and even the uneven gravel road and some grass at one point was quite easy to navigate although it's surprising how much did roads can tilt. The only thing that I found difficult was transitioning from going reverse to forward, the bot just want to keep going reverse. Strange as going forward was easy, stopping was easy, starting reverse was easy, but once going reverse stopping or changing to forward was difficult. Maybe by feet are tougher back on the pads? I don't know, but that is the one thing I need to practice. Of course spinning around is easy that one can just to that and forward which is certainly preferred. Go reverse slow for a few feet is fine, but just once it get really going I had trouble. Glad I spotted the deal, but now I've spend days looking at EUC videos. The MiniPro might be Gateway-Tech (drug) to an EUC. Great to find this Forum with people from so many different regions. Stay on the upside!
