  1. Try putting a ratchet strap around the center of the tire and cinch it down. This will push the edges of the tire against the rim. This worked for me when I had one new tire that would not seat.
  2. I have noticed since I put the 90/65 street tires on my Minipro that when climbing hills I get tilt back earlier than when stock tires were mounted. Not sure why.
  3. I found 50 psi gave a nice ride. 60 psi yielded better mileage. The fenders are not too difficult. Once you figure out the first one, the second one will take 10 minutes.
  4. You will definitely love the larger tires. You will ask yourself why didn't I do this sooner!
  5. I just use it for fun. I like to find new places to cruise around on paved bike paths. I usually travel between 12 to 20 miles per trip. I'm not into extreme speed. Slow and steady and enjoying the sites.
  6. Here is my set-up.... 2 in 1 adjustable handlebar Cell phone holder Small cargo bag Water bottle holder Bose Bluetooth sound system Enlarged and padded foot platform Kick stand 90/65 6.5 Monster street tires More4Mini 63v charger 18-20 mile range (verified with GPS) This thing is a BLAST!
  7. That dual lock stuff look good. Which one did you use, rubber ,acrylic or low profile? I agree with needing the hard surface for the base. I too need good support for my feet.
  8. I like the idea of modular. Do you think that just foam alone will be too flexible?
  9. Looks good! Seems like standing directly on the foam would be better than on the wood. Better cushioning for your feet.
  10. This is the kind of padding I used. https://www.greatmats.com/products/taekwondo-mats.php#specs More like rubber than foam. Very hard to damage. It looks like they will send out a free sample. Not sure how big it is. You should for sure change the tires. They are taller so you get more speed, not that much but noticeable. They are also much wider so they are much more stable. Especially on bumps, cracks etc. I was even able to install them without the use of tools. Just put my weight on the edges and they popped on pretty easy.
  11. Looking good! I did not find a need to have a piece of wood on the top with the foam pad I used. I just bought a cheap doormat at Home Depot for $3.00 and cut it to fit and glued it to the pad. Now all you need are some monster tires. Here is my current setup. Larger platform with monster tires. I could not be happier with the ride it provides!
  12. Let us know how it works out for you. If you use Velcro to attach the platform be careful when you take it off because it might pull the rubber footpad out of it's housing. Don't ask how I know....
  13. I have been super happy with this set up. It does a nice job cushioning the feet on bumps. It also allows you to reposition your feet every so often to relieve foot fatigue. I wouldn't want to be without it.
  14. I have not tried the more4mini ones, but just installed these 90/65-6.5 tires. http://www.extremescooters.biz/90-65-6-5-tubeless-tire-with-tread-154-263.aspx I love them! Taller and wider. Very nice stable ride. The original tires were 32 inch circumference the new ones are 36.625 inches. That is 12.5% larger. So actual top speed should be about 12 mph. They were super easy to install. The hardest part was modifying the original fenders. The difference in speed was noticeable. If you are on the fence, I say go for it!
