My Introduction and a Question?

UPS website has a calculator by weight,size, and distance for estimating shipping cost.  I think its around 40-50 dollars each way for a 50 pound box of a certain size going less than all the way across country.

One option is to rent an electric bicycle.  Kind of pricy though.  https://www.pedegoelectricbikes.com/dealers/denver/#rentals-pedego

Well thank you for the info @meepmeepmayer and @steve454.I guess thats why I couldn't find anything on this forum about Airline travel. I will definitely not be shipping it because of cost and not knowing exactly where we are staying ( we kind of just wing it when we travel). I did find a Segway Tour company in Denver so that may be the way I get my fix. Not the same but it would be fun to try and see the sights that way.

Welcome to the threads! I think you might be the nearest Floridian to me here. I’m on my 4th Ninebot, and can’t wait til the 5th gets here. In fact, I still need to drive to PCB to pick up my NB1 E+.

The S1 has two 155Wh batteries, so you can remove both and be alright. It is also a fairly compact 14inch. I have still flown with my wheels checked multiple times... cough cough. I promise I’m not a bad person ?. They come in so handy that I rarely get a rental.

@Daniel Burkemper We are on our way back from Denver now, it was a great trip but so wished I would of had it in the city. I saw a couple running around when I was walking. I get home today and back on my wheel tonight hopefully. We did do a really cool Segway tour in Denver. It was a good time and showed me all the places I will go next time I’m up there.

Denver tried to kick out all the dockless scooters a while ago, but let them back on the streets  (on sidewalks) as part of a new pilot program... The latest for Denver is the entry of dockless e-bikes from Uber (formerly Jump Bikes). Uber already has a stake in Lime, and with these latest developments is planning to make Denver a major battleground in it's quest for Dockless Dominance.

Note: To use an UberBIKE, apparently you have to release a U-lock with a code. While still considered dockless, I think having to lock the device to 'something' makes them less susceptible to being strewn all over the place. (Maybe scooters should try this?) hmm.jpg.629798dff5aa45ccfa774ad222056171.jpg

There are so many electric scooters in Denver now. I love them, but even I'm starting to think they've crossed the point of saturation. In my part of Denver I can travel for a few blocks and count dozens, and maybe spot up to 4 brands (Bird, Lime, Spin, Razor). I'm nowhere near downtown.

The law says they can only go on pedestrian paths, but given the narrow sidewalks found in many places this is stupidly dangerous and most riders figure this out and use bike lanes or ride with traffic on slow streets. The city seems content with just kind of letting people figure things out for now and don't seem to be enforcing many rules. This is probably the right approach until we have a better idea how they will fit into the transportation mix.

Trying out a Lime scooter and being impressed with how fun it was led me to buy my own (Ninebot ES2). Getting bored with that led me to discovering EUCs and getting one of those (Glide 3). That should buy me at least a couple years before I get bored again and feel compelled to continue my paramotor research :-P

Good luck with owning just one. Lol I’ve only been doing it for 3 months now and have a few more than one.  It is super addictive!!!
