Where is it legal to use these?
14mph, humbug if you can't mod it to do 30mph then useless

Private land.



Yes, but only with permission and only where the general public does not have access, so not car parks or private roads, etc.

M365 clone
at least this time spare parts will fit

Lots of people get away with breaking various laws for awhile. The fact remains that it is illegal to ride these in public places, and yes, people have been prosecuted, fined, and had points on their driver's licence. Currently the police have been telling riders that they are breaking the law, and if the rider picks up the scooter and carries it away, they get off with a warning, if not, the police may confiscate it, as they may do with any uninsured vehicle, as well as issuing a summons.

All that article claims is that the government are under pressure to legalise them. Not 1 person has had points on their license for riding one of these. Don't come up with garbage statements if you can't back them up.

Saw this in the leaflet yesterday. Think I'll pop along and see if there are any left in Thursday lunchtime.

Not sure how many each store will get, probably not that many.

Clearly you did not read the article. I quote- "Last year a 15-year-old boy was hit with six penalty points on his future licence - despite not being old enough to drive." Also, as for "pressure to legalise", in the same article- Xavier Brice, CEO of Sustrans, the walking and cycling charity, says "The needs and safety of everyone, including pedestrians and other vulnerable road users, must be considered before any change in the law" .

Here is another link - the government's own advice page. That has links to other cases of prosecutions upheld on appeal.

You missed an important part of the statement and I quote" He'd been caught riding an electric scooter "at high speeds" in Cleveland, North East England." so he was driving like an idiot and he will have also derestricted it. Ride these sensibly and you will not get stopped. Even celebrities ride them round in England. Get off your high horse and stop thinking you will get stopped on 1 of these. I know police officers who ride these.

But you said no one had ever got points on their licence. Not True. Yes, the cops are more likely to come down hard on those who ride recklessly. Currently they are warning people, and if the person picks up the scooter and carries it away, they leave it at that. But people certainly do get prosecuted, and fined, and the scooter seized. You seem to have made a personal issue out of this. I merely point out the facts, which you seem to have got wrong. Even Lidl points out in a disclaimer that these are not legal to use in public places.

They're not legal to ride in those cycle lanes though.

True. But given pavements are not allowed and roads probably too I think it is the safest grey area and certainly police not cracking down!

Forget about solid tires. This scooter does not have any sort of suspension and solid tires will make everything shake like crazy, even loosing bolts and that. I own one and upgraded it to 10 inch tyres and confort has improved a lot. Changing/repairing tubes with10 inch is much easier.

How did you change the wheel hubs to 10inch? The front has the motor

And also the wheel clearance would be an issue.

There is plenty of videos on YouTube about how to do it. Its not difficult but requires some extra work apart from the tyres themselves, a few plastic parts you can get 3d printed and some longer screws. There is no need to change the inner tubes, the 8.5 inch work just fine.

This would seem to be yet another post asking me to shut up. That's both ironic and futile.

I am not on a moral crusade. People who purchase these things need to know that using them in public places lays them open to legal penalties, including fines, points on their licence (even if they don't have one), and confiscation of the item. The constant (it won't happen" chorus from those who haven't been caught yet is a disservice to others, hence I post references to instances of people being subjected to these penalties, and I will continue to do so. Whether prospective buyers wish to take the risks is entirely a matter for them.

People who are losing an argument always want the winning side to shut up. That is the "trend". I will continue to counter the "don't worry, you won't be caught" posts as they occur in the place they occur. Why don't you contact Lidl and ask them to remove their disclaimer- "Must only be used on private property with the owner's consent. Not permitted on public highways, including roads, pavements and cycle paths. " You will have as much success with that as in trying to silence posters here.
The trend of people asking you to keep quiet was what I was referring to. I'm just fed up with being nagged about upholding the law on every Powered transporters thread. Reminds me of my high school history teacher, who was constantly shouting "wake up boy" because his lessons were so boring

You will only feel nagged if you hang about arguing the toss. I feel impelled to post the legal position because there are people buying these things who don't know, and there are other people encouraging them to break the law by insisting that it isn't being enforced. If they want to take the risk, that is up to them, but they need to have accurate information.
I've seen a pretty good deal on the Ninebot Segway ES2, anyone know much about this model or tried one? Much appreciated if so.

Ive heard countries which have scooter rental companies use these because of their overall high reliability, though a few issues have been reported around the electronics, but not massively so.

Hey Chris, nice one! Be interested to know what your verdict is after you take it for a road test! (Hopefully the scooter police on this site will forgive my figure of speech)
Hi. First escooter for me amd the kids. Had ebikes in past and kids both have segway minilites. This is as it looks a m365 clone. Build quality out of the box appears really good. Screws flush, headlight flush. Disc brake all set up ready to go. Folds up and down easy. Has an eco mode limited to 12mph. Made/imported by KSR Group, Austria.

Had a quick blast down my private road, all good so far. Love it. Really please. 2 year UK gtee swayed it for along with the saving over the m356 from halfords.

Thanks for taking the time to post that, I'll give it some consideration myself! As you say, that warranty carries a value all of its own.

Good to hear you are happy with the ride and build quality!

I've seen the Xiaomi Ninebot ES2 on a site that, fully insured order delivery, guaranteed no customs or customs fees reimbursed, but HUKD stopped allowing posts from the site earlier in the summer so cannot post. Brings it down from an inflated £475-500 down to about £275-280.

But factoring in warranty and being able to pick yours up today, makes your purchase seem like much more of a good idea!
