I'm 39 and I got one about a month ago. Put 100+ miles on it. You're not too old, this one is perfect for old people. I even ordered a unicycle because life is short, I need to have fun.

Don't rely on being able to do firmware downgrades.  As for age, I'm 68 tomorrow and loving mine!

thank you all for the answers.I placed the order today,i live in Turkey and i think i will get it at the end of this month.I know it depends but what will be the firmware am i going to get it with?

Also as i found out  i ordered the xiaomi mini version other than pro what are the differences between mini and pro?Are they doing same speed?Should i cancel my order and place pro ?There is $270 price difference.Anyways i cancelled the mini order and place pro but cant decide either white or black?

I have the mini -not pro and im happy with it! the battery has less cappacity so the range might be smaller but to be honnest mine does about 18KM range so ot is good! the rest is the same so there is no point to over spend such a big money! mini pro has a steering regulation hight and different wcheel cover and thats it. this was the trick from ninebot to put the prices up. they didnt bother to make more diference in the range or speed or even soft...

That money diference between pro and mini i would spend on handlebar with wcheel cups on the normal mini. still You save and You wont regret! I do not like a handle steering as I did get use to the fun with a knee bar but it might be ok for You to have both of them.

How much is Your mini and the mini pro price for You?

For the soft You should ask the seller which firmwire will You get. and trully dont worry about it as the latest one 1.4.0 (if You would have to upgrade) is ok.

Thanks for the anwer, i cancelled the order already because seller says shipping is end of this month and other mini pro seller has it in stock.Also mini is around $750 and mini pro is $1016.I see there are minimal differences. but couldnt be sure about quality on mini.Also I want to know if you have the white one or black?I liked the white one better ,but it looks like it shows dirt which i think  will be the issue .

I have both black and white (two white ones actually) and I cannot decide which colour is best ;) But I sometimes seem to like the white one better. My 9b1 is white so it must have something to do with it.

As fro mini v.s miniPro - if you don't mind a price difference - buy miniPro. Let the chinese model be for chinese market as it was intended. There are a few differencies in materials used (i.e. steering column connection).

Not at all. I really like the plastic type and surface on miniPro's. Using microfiber cloth to clean them. Any shoemarks can be cleaned up with Scotch-Brite Easy Eraser

I really don't think you should let the idea of dirt influence your decision regarding buying a white one if it is the one you want.  Black doesn't exactly hide dust well either.

Agreed. The black one looks "dusty" much sooner. Just like any black coloured car...

I think the Mini Pro will impress no matter the color.

Connect to your minipro through the app and look at the battery information. Should be 310Wh battery with 5700mAh plus other battery information. All of fake versions doesn't show any battery information there as it's too expensive to replicate functionality of BMS and dataconnections, thus unprofitable for fakers.

if you go 28:36 on the video fake one shows all information about the battery

Going to 28:36 won't show you whether your battery is right or not, Ozzy. Viks was showing you how to check your unit, not how to watch a video.

Yes, some of the best "replicas" goes an extra mile to show some battery information, but still the serial number and wrong information about battery is the biggest giveaway.

i didnt mean to offend him just showing what i see, anyways Vik so i think all the fake ones have strange serial number will be the main point.
