  1. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2021/01/16/shapps-plan-get-e-scooters-road-hits-speed-bumps/ Shapps’ plan to get e-scooters on the road hits speed bumps The government's adviser will not report back on whether to give electric scooters the green light until the end of October ByOliver Gill16 January 2021 • 8:00pm Hopes are fading that ministers will legalise the use of electric scooters on Britain’s roads before the end of the year. Grant Shapps, the Transport Secretary, sought to “fast-track” the legalisation of e-scooters last spring as officials scrambl
  2. I've been absent for a while, so sorry for my late reply. Yes, I have received my L9 and it seems very well built compared to my Xiaomi M365 Pro. Its built like a tank and quite heavy at 24kg, My Xiaomi feels like a toy by comparison. There are several reviews on YouTube now on this e-scooter and all are pretty positive. I am happy with my choice, but I haven't been able to ride it as my L9 arrived DOA and won't power on. I am working with InMotion to diagnose and fix it.
  3. Here is an example of a Xiaomi M365 Pro motor after riding in rain often (it wasn't submerged)...
  4. Motor bearings will need replaced and the motor stripped down and any corrosion treated. Don't leave it too long before you open it up and ensure it gets completely dry. Its probably worth fixing if you are able to do this yourself.
  5. Its a shame there is no Android version as Android has 75% market share.
  6. Remove the inner tube, inflate to expand the tube and hold under water and look for slow formation of bubbles. You will find the problem, but you need to remove the tube to properly check it and repair any problem.
  7. Seems things are off to a bad start... UK’s first e-scooter trial scaled back amid widespread misuse
  8. I don't mind a little bit of danger to get the adrenaline pumping, but I don't want to be crushed by a large metal object that is a few meters behind me ... that is not a good way to go.
  9. That is interesting, but i see a couple of problems ... 1) The mass would be quite large. 2) It would affect handling and agility as you would need to overcome the mass just to steer.
  10. Maybe someone will invent a wobble cancelling device using some weights and an accelerometer? if you can detect the onset of a wobble early it should be possible to stop it growing by firing a weight in the opposite direction and firing it back as the wobble switches direction, so stabilising the wheel. A bit like using an optical image stabiliser on camera lens. There's another great opportunity here for an EUC manufacturer to be first to improve safety with such a device ... its definitely doable.

    A good example of safe and sensible riding, even though that wheel is a beast.
