  1. Public opinion is everything. There's this company in San Diego called Scooter Removal making money (or trying to at least) by removing scooters from private property. They have a GoFundMe campaign setup because the 'evil' scooter rental companies don't want to pay their ransom, I mean, impound fees... "Help us or we'll die." (Good riddens.) https://www.scootscoop.com/

    [EcoDrift.ru] Ninebot Z10: A Diagnosis of Common Issues

    Sadly, the Bloomberg article described Ninebot's electric unicycle as "a one-wheeled orb with retractable foot stands"; (but at least there was photo of a wheel). Man riding futuristic orb (Also mention of Shane Chen's "one-wheeled scooter", the Solowheel...)

    I thought it sounded too long. I'm not sure where the picture above was taken, but like I said... that whole route is paved. There are actually bike paths all around the bayshore, but there is a noticeable gap just before the IB entrance. (Watch out at the entrance because cyclist fly though there all the time...)

    Did you actually try the Silver Strand ride? I live in the South Bay, so I'm familiar with that route. (Although, I didn't realize it was 20 miles each way from Chula Vista marina.) From the starting point you illustrated, it's a two lane bike path (separated from traffic) all the way to Coronado. It's a cycling highway. (I've ridden my ebike there a few times...)
  5. The same applies if you don't look after your prostate.
  6. Those photos were hacked from my smartphone and not meant for prying eyes.
  7. Why is the guy in the illustration naked?

    It sure was a nice day. I was dressed way too warm, but the breeze helped. (And this morning I was thinking: "damn, I forgot to bring mittens".) Gotta love San Diego!
  9. We're just spit-balling ideas here, but this all ties into a larger discussion of what's possible with technology these days and how it will impact us (down the road). I was watching PBS last night, the segment was about driverless vehicles and the trucking industry... Possible? Practical? Should we?... I think debate is healthy (especially when people have strong feelings one way or the other).

    ESCIS 'retro' electric unicycle

    It's as if the design were outsourced to a firm with no mention as to the actual size/scale. (This would be a lovely design for a scaled-up 'half-motorcycle' size version...)
  11. Better add the hide/reveal code on that before you get down-voted.

    ESCIS 'retro' electric unicycle

    I thought the little saddle bags were for batteries, but after seing the video, I guess they're for haberdashery items. I guess we will have to choose between the stylish bags or adding a (custom chrome) trolley handle in the back...
  13. If the sensor or trigger (whatever) made a high pitched warning sound instead of cutting off power, then maybe fewer people might get hurt... Runaway wheels may always be a possibility, but so are runaway drones falling out of the sky (these hurt).
