  1. Black day for EUCs in Germany Last week, the Bundesrat (German Federal Council) put forward an amendment to the recent e-mobility directive of the Bundesministerium für Verkehr und digitale Infrastruktur (German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure) requesting to drop special regulations that would exempt (and thereby legalize) EUCs in the new directive. This new motion essentially implies that all PLEV vehicles without steering wheel/handlebars won't get insurance and will (continue to) be forbidden on German public grounds since EUCs by default they are considered standard motorized automobile vehicles like your BMW or Mercedes which German legislators' intellectual horizon naturally requires to have a proper steering wheel/handlebar. Otherwise automobile vehicles surely cannot be considered safe (or at least safe enough to kill hundreds of people every year). So, from now on every cop from will just have to look for a handlebar in order to assess a vehicle's legal status in Germany which means that EUCs and e-skateboards will be even more easily identified and hunted down. Here is the relevant passage (in German): "Der Bundesrat stellt fest, dass die 2018 veröffentlichte Untersuchung der Bundesanstalt für Straßenwesen zu Elektrokleinstfahrzeugen die Empfehlung enthält, nur Elektrokleinstfahrzeuge mit Haltegriff beziehungsweise Lenker für den öffentlichen Straßenverkehr zuzulassen, um ein Mindestniveau für die Sicherheit herzustellen. Die Überlegungen der Bundesregierung, Elektrokleinstfahrzeuge ohne Lenk- oder Haltestange über eine Ausnahmeverordnung im öffentlichen Straßenraum für mindestens zwei bis drei Jahre zu testen, werden vom Bundesrat daher abgelehnt." This literally spells the end of EUCs in Germany for at least another decade. Yesterday at a small e-mobility fair in Lower Saxony I talked to some bureaucrats about this. The only sense I could make from their statements is that while keeping the public in the dark German politicians so heavily depend on the automobile industry and its jobs that they actively and effectively discourage impede any alternative e-mobility strategies that would only even remotely appear to divert the smallest funds away from the automobile industry. ... and all this with Dieselgate still unfolding - WTF
  2. Next week we gona do the first demonstration ride here in Berlin Germany for the legalisation of PLEVs and EUCs in our country. After a discusion with the ministry it goes 10km through the middle of Berlin guided by the police and afterwards we will end up in a hall ride where we celebrate together and wheeling indors, like in a roller disco. Every personal light electric vehicle and roller dancers are invited. Date is the 13.12.18, 12 o'clock BMVI Invalidenstr. 44 10115 Berlin Who is in Berlin in this time or want to come and join the freedom ride?
  3. Hi, thank you for the great forum. I would like to start with EUC so I have not much knowledge. I want to buy an EUC but have not decided yet. I would be thankful for help! I live in a city (and especially my street) which is quite steep so some power is needed. I do not intend to use it regularly for my commute but more for fun or for some travels with trains etc. Therefore range is not a big issue. I like speed. I am not squeamish when it comes to carrying weight, but as mentioned before, I will use it for public transport so a medium weight would be nice. I do not care much about the design. I care for durability. I do not need a fancy app but setting a speed limit for the beginning which can be removed when I think it is the right time is good. I do not mind buying a used one, but my impression was that the price difference is small. So I thought about parameters like this: 500W/15km/28km/h/12kg I do not want to invest a lot and would like to invest below 400€, nevertheless, I do not want to invest 350€ for an EUC which I will consider too weak after a few weeks. I considered the Ninebot S2 which I can get for about 330€ with warranty I considered the Gotaway MCM3 (130WH) for 313€ without warranty I considered the Gotaway MCM3 (170WH) for 360€ without warranty I considered the Gotaway MCM4 (130WH) for 463€ without warranty I considered this one (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2016-New-Fashion-style-Powered-Bluetooth-unicycle-1600W-self-balancing-car-smart-car-single-wheel-thinking/32738452250.html) for 284€ but when I asked about more details the seller told me it was out of stock. I considered the IPS ZERO (240WH) for 421€ without warranty . If you have other recommendations or better prices (for Germany) I would be thankful. Also if you think my parameters are bullshit feel free to tell me. Thank you very much!

IMAGE: PAUL THOMPSON/FPG/ARCHIVE PHOTOS/GETTY IMAGES Yes, she is a suffragette, and yes, that is her scooter. English socialite and activist Florence Priscilla, Lady Norman, CBE was given this Autoped as a birthday present by her husband, Sir Henry Norman. She used it to travel to her office in central London. Florence was following in her mother's footsteps in her active support for women's suffrage. Her CBE (Commander of the British Empire) came when she ran a hospital in France during World War I. Kick scooters — a flat board on wheels with a long handle at the front, propelled by foot — have been made for at least 100 years as toys for children. Florence's Autoped was one of the first examples of motorised kick scooters. Like a child's scooter, it had no seat. Manufactured in New York and Germany by Krupps, the U.S. postal service tested the Autoped as a means of fast transport for its special delivery service. The foldable scooter was also reportedly used as a quick getaway machine by New York gangs, racing down narrow alleys beyond the reach of police cars. Other manufacturers followed: ABC Motorcycles produced the Skootamota, which had a top speed of 15 mph (24 km/h), and The Gloster Aircraft Company introduced the Reynolds Runabout in 1919, followed by the Unibus in 1920. The Unibus was promoted as the "car on two wheels." Some of these early scooter designs were unstable, uncomfortable to ride and difficult to handle. The decades leading up to World War II saw the gradual introduction of a range of refinements, including efficient lights and brakes, gears, suspension, enclosed bodies and leg shields. During the 1930s, scooters were introduced to a new market as the ideal mode of transport at large, sprawling military bases. Ironically, the era of the scooter truly began after the war — a direct result of fuel rationing. c. 1915 Four special delivery postmen for the US Postal Service try out new scooters.

And maybe i will need some help on my way (i hope to won't need it, but who knows) with the wheel. If it will be broken or smthg like that, so please, if someone from u could help me, let me know, please.

  6. hi everyone, my name is dominic, i'm from germany and i live - in the world’s most livable city - in muenster. i'm rollin' for more than 1 year and sadly i've seen only a few like-minded on wheels. muenster and its surroundings are really beautiful, but to avoid encounters with the police, i like to ride on a military training ground in handorf or at the lake aa. gladly would i like to meet more people with the same interest and maybe some other places to roll. do you live in muenster or nearby?
  7. So Leute, dann bin ich auch mal hier... Hab am 24.04.16 mein GW MCM3 in Betrieb genommen, gleich die Schienbeine blau gefärbt und die Knöchel ruiniert. Aber schön ist es trotzdem ^^ Mittlerweile fahre ich mit dem Teil auf Arbeit oder mal eben bei schönem Wetter 15-20km durch Wald und Flur. Jetzt nur noch schauen wo ich die Versicherung her bekomme und alles ist schick.
  8. Hallo Leute! Ich habe für alle deutschen Fahrer eine Gruppe erstellt, damit wir mal eine Plattform zum austauschen, beraten und informieren haben! Und vielleicht sind wir eines Tages so viele, dass man unsere Stimme erhört und die Wheels in der Öffentlichkeit legalisiert werden! Bitte tretet ein und macht Werbung! https://m.facebook.com/groups/1235930373097502 Liebe Grüße!
  9. Hallo Leute, ich habe mir mal einen Hoverboard Test angeschaut und möchte mir nun eines kaufen. Gibt es in Deutschland regelmäßige Hoverboard-Treffen wo man einfach gemeinsam etwas rumfährt? Ich komme aus der Nähe von Oberhausen und würde mich freuen, wenn sich jemand meldet. Viele Grüße, Ibra
  10. Als begeisterte Fahrer eines elektrischen Einrads habt ihr Euch vermutlich schon mal Gedanken um die rechtliche Situation in Deutschland Gedanken gemacht. Fakt ist (leider), dass alles, was per Motor betrieben wird als KFZ gesehen wird. Und wenn dieses KFZ zudem schneller als 6 km/h fährt, benötigt es ein Nummernschild. Dies ist die vereinfachte Variante. Da ich seit einiger Zeit mit dem E-Longboard eine ähnliche Situation habe (das Gerät fährt 38 km/h) und mit Team Blau bereits einige Katz & Maus-Spielchen hatte (die Jungs tun nur ihren exekutieven Job und können ja nix für die veraltete Gesetzgebung) möchte ich gerne mein Wissen teilen. Das Problem besteht im Grunde ja darin, dass der Gesetzgeber eine Pflichtversicherung vorschreibt, die Versicherungen diese aber (noch) nicht anbieten. Im Gesetz steht jedoch auch, dass eine Versicherung euch einen Versicherungsschutz für ein KFZ gewähren muss (Kontrahierungszwang, https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kontrahierungszwang) sprich, wenn ihr ein Fahrzeug habt, welches als KFZ deklariert wird, muss euch die Versicherung auch einen entsprechenden Versicherungsschutz anbieten (siehe auch § 5, Absatz 4, http://www.gesetze-im-internet.de/pflvg/BJNR102130965.html). Die meisten Versicherungen werden versuchen sich aus dieser Pflicht zu stehlen indem sie erwähnen, dass dieses KFZ keine Zulassung hat - jedoch ist dies so nicht vom Gesetzgeber vorgesehen und damit keine Ausrede. Wir hoffen ja alle, dass ab 2016 auch elektrische Einräder europaweit zugelassen werden, bis dahin hilft hoffentlich folgender Artikel: http://www.elektro-skateboard.de/forum/szene-talk-63/rechtliche-auseinandersetzung-1396.php Tipp: Schreibt an eine Versicherung, per Post, ohne Angabe von Telefonnummer oder E-Mail und bittet um eine KFZ-Versicherung für euer Einrad. Bewahrt das Ablehnungsschreiben in jeden Fall auf!
