Electric scooter for adults
« on: December 01, 2019, 09:18:18 AM »
Not much on this topic here. Trying to get an idea of which scooter is worth buying- so I guess here are a few questions that can narrow the search:
Do you have an electric scooter?
If yes which one?
Pros and cons?
Do you recommend it?

1) Yes
2) Xaiomi m365
3) Pros: its is as good as any 5-600$ one, but only costs 350.
Cons: it broke and CS is giving me a run around. Bought with amex, on amazon, so I have another 2 people to turn to. I can jerry rig a solution so I'm not trying to hard to get it fixed by them.
4) i love it. People clearly judge me for riding it, because they dont (and I have not either) seen any other yid riding one, but what do I care?
I'm not who you think I am.

How long after you bought it did it break?

One month. But its not a problem that makes it unusable.

I think Flatbush is different in that regard, not Lakewood. Hopefully one day I'll be able to ride one too and not become the talk of town :-\

The difference is, in flatbush they are scootering instead of *walking* 4 blocks to shul. In Lakewood it would be scootering instead on *driving* 2 blocks to shul.
I'm not who you think I am.

Don't forget the ease of finding parking in Lakewood Vs Brooklyn. That's another incentive for the Brooklyn peeps to Scoot Scoot around.
