Or you could walk and save $350
Aside from security and the like, I don’t think I’ve ever seen any model of Segway “in the wild”. If they were that great, I’d think they’d be more common.
Actually, I have one myself and have seen a few others locally.
It’s a pretty outstanding piece of hardware for anyone interested. VERY stable and easy to ride, battery life is great.
Of course, this shouldn’t and doesn’t replace walking, but you can cover a lot of ground faster on these little suckers. Very handy for the right use cases.
There’s a guy where I work who has an old, painful leg injury. He uses a Segway to get around our large campus. I have intermittent pain that makes it hard to walk at work sometimes; a Segway would be really useful at those times. It’s totally impractical for me at home, though.
I have a temporary leg problem, and wow-- this Segway would sure get me out of the wheel chair—more. It’s been really difficult to go places with my husband and kids, with using my cane, too. Wheelchair is impossible to use as establishments are not totally retrofitted. It’d just be nice, to go by myself and not rely on others all the time. I’dlove to try this as I’m in good shape, otherwise.
I would be worried that someone would knock me off it and steal it while I was just riding around the neighborhood. Seems easier to do that than if you’re riding a bike or even a full Segway.
If you live in this kind of neighborhood, then you need more than the Segway. how about a pistol?
Bought 2 last year here at $399.00/ ea . Nothing but joy !
wanted to get in on this…
I was very excited to get my minipro since we already own one and I know how much fun they can be. But I just put it together and it DOES NOT WORK! The charger shows that the battery is fully charged, but the power button DOES NOT WORK. So now I have a $380 paper weight. I’ve e-mailed CS, so fingers are crossed for some help with this. Makes me leery of buying any other refurbs here. Anyone else having this problem?
I’m sorry for the problems. CS will help you out.
FWIW: Double check all connections?
