    Ninebot one shutting off while riding

    Sounds definitely like some of the individual cells in your battery pack are below the needed charge rate (or even plain dead) so when BMS cutting the motor out it is because them faulty cells rendering the whole battery unable to deliver enough juice... Did you try to leave your 9b1 on a charger for a couple of hours longer after the red light on the adapter goes green? That could probably level the cells out by charging them at low rate.

    Almost the same thing I've been through a couple of years ago! My fault, low speed (even too low), no damage... Paying too much attention to people around me. Newbie fault at that time for me. Glad you're OK!

    Fair enough. Don't get me wrong - I am not saying that a couple of hours of training before the first ever ride is not impressive.

    Not that unusual, is it? I've been practicing about 20-25 minutes a day spread over the five days before I took my first proper ride to work. That way I've avoided the worst bruises and such.
  5. @GrAnd as I said, "known to be dangerous", like i.e. 1.2.7 (?) Not to mention the security breach in all fw versions prior to 1.4.0... (can't find the link right now) The Segway miniPRO scooter has a critical vulnerability. 1.1.7 is surely a popular version or so it seems.. at least among the early adopters. But not the safest one as there is a greater potential risk of being thrown off the minipro and the fact that in case of stepping off it (unintentionally) while moving, the minipro will proceed without rider pretending like nothing happened… On the plus side - It is probably sometimes marginally faster and starting more swiftly from standing still. Not too many pro's for users looking for safe and reliable ride. Latest FW version is safer by giving the user all the important feedback (both audible and tiltback), is easier to maintain cruising speed on, providing better range (lower battery consumption than on 1.1.x and 1.2.x). Remember we are talking about safety and most users reporting here got latest version of firmware on their minipro's.
  6. Ok, but anyway, the minipro's shouldn't be judged just by a single failure, without mentioning the circumstances like firmware version and possible overleaning etc. Owning 3 of them I can stand by them minipros being reliable and safe. Not running them against the beeps and tiltback and not using early versions of firmware known to be dangerous, of course.
  7. But that was a clone, not a ninebot, wasn't it?

    Rusted footplate?

    Try some CRC Freeze Off. Great stuff and works every time. I prefer this over WD-40. Soak the middle part of the bar for a good 5 minutes and hammer the bar out. The problem is that the bar could be bent so it's not just rust that holding it...

    @EUCMania Resting in my pocket most of the time. Only getting out when I need to warn somebody about my presence And usually that's goes at around walking speed anyway so no potential problems here.

    I've got a couple of very nice and pretty light bikebells in slim version: WOSAWE Mini Bike Bicycle Cycling Bell Aluminum Really like the sound of them! Sits nicely around one finger (when you need it, otherwise in the pocket) and not as protruding as usual bells:

    Inmotion V8 firmware

    Yep, 1009 is the latest.

    Quadratisch. Praktisch. Gut. Not that GW is anywhere near the gelendvagen though..

    Ninebot one e for effort

    Welcome to EUC world! What you describe is a different matter. OP mentioned stuttering while pushing the wheel (powered off).
