That thing is SET UP haha!  Nice mate!  What do you use your Mini Pro for mostly out of curiosity?

Cheers,

 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.

I have built handlebars out of 3/4" PVC schedule 40 piping. You can see that it self balances (and that I only have 3 battery bars left, I need a charge!). I machined a bracket out of a 1-1/2" square bar of aluminum, with a half inch wide bevel off each of the bar's corners, and a 30 degrees from vertical sloping surface to tap 3/4NSF so I can screw the pipe to the aluminum.

Why did I do this? I wanted a handlebars that didn't run away if left unattended, and which had less of a "firm" feel to them, to remind me that I shouldn't grip the handlebars for support. But I failed at both objectives. The bars are in fact quite nicely firm, yet when made out of 1/2 piping were not firm enough. Sigh... And it turns out that on a flat surface even self-balancing bars occasionally cause the unit to move forward (especially if there is a 'downhill' direction to go in). But there is no force to this movement, and even a slight divet will keep the MiniPRO stationary.

Could it be improved? You bet, with the 3D printing technology which I don't have yet :) But at least I had a vertical mill to make this old-fashioned version :)

The tires are already discussed here:

I've been there (on foot, but)!

 
 

I used to live just up the road from there and it's a cool area they have done up.  Whenever i have a chance i go down there and to the end of the tank farm to see if anyone has caught anything off the breakwater there.  It's surprising the fish that live in the harbor still haha.  Wouldnt eat them myself though... :barf:

@Alex_from_NZ… When you have an EUC we will have to take a group photo from there, yes?

I would be very interested in a group ride once I'm capable!
