Hello Friends I hope this advice will help everybody here Well The friend s daughter recently just had an accident with a Mini. How to avoid this? Here's what I recommend: 1 / First know the route in advance allows you to prepare for obstacles such as deformation of the roadway, sidewalks, traffic problems 2 / The child's weight is important, in fact, the Mini is based on the weight of the owner adjusts the driving function, you need to do is go into the settings and reset factory settings at each change of users, to "erase" the memory of the mini data about your weight and driving attitudes. 3 / With Ninebot application, limit the speed between 6 and 10 km / h for the first 20 minutes of ride, that the Mini stores attitude and weight of the child. 4 / helmet, elbow pads, knee: Remember protections ? 5 / Finally you always hold back the child to help anticipate obstacles by your advice 6/ after dont forget to restore Factory Settings for you ? My original advice can be seen here (available in spanish and french too) : http://mini-j.jimdo.com/home/news/mini-advices/ (Im not making money with my blog , there's only a google cookie inside)
I'm a n00bie, about 30 days into learning the 9B1E and with about 30km under my belt. I try to ride at least every other day and still, after I ride about 1km, my feet start to hurt like crazy! The pain fills up the volume of each foot, as if all the internal foot muscles have been over-strained. I was hoping it would go away as my feet got stronger, but I'm starting to think it might be something I'm doing wrong, like using an incorrect foot position on the pedals. Anyone have any experience or advice to share on this? -e
There's been lots of discussion on injuries and wearing protection, especially as of late. Maybe it's BMS failure, maybe the wheel caught a rock, but it seems that faceplants are inevitable. Please add to the vote! Perhaps this could people decide on a riding speed they're comfortable with, and how much protection to wear. There's no right or wrong answer -- except the honest truth! (Your answers are anonymous.) Thanks for your help! Speaking of bailing off EUCs at high speed, on this thread, @csmyers caught his highly-skilled high speed bailout roll on video, @Gimlet suggests riding with your knees bent to run off at high speeds, @Jurgen and @lizardmech give nice pointers on martial arts rolls to bail at high speeds. It's an interesting read even if you're not skilled enough to attempt rolls at high speeds, I'd recommend it.
I strongly agree with wearing protective clothing. Maybe falling off is unavoidable at times however reducing the chances of injury are easy. I have put together a range of protective clothing in cooperation with some Australian partners that I will ship from Australia. Australia has been a leader in crash protection for a long time, haha we needed it. For road/concrete surfaces you will completely kit yourself out for about USD 600.00 (dirt protective clothing is a little cheaper) (Helmet, gloves, boots, Kevlar pants, Kevlar jacket (even have a hoody that looks normal even though it has hidden padding and elbow, back protectors) There are heaps of styles and choices. Sizing is world standards or I have a size chart if required. your current footwear will have the size written on it. You can go all out with full leather and high quality full face helmet and pay around USD1500.00 Here is an example of what you can purchase
