    There are so so so many better and cheaper options on Amazon. I spent $899 and got 16 inch bike tires and 30 mile range.

    The moment I start riding one of those is the moment I lose my man card.

      Realistically you’d only be picking it up to take it into your apartment or onto a bus

    I couldn’t imagine a scenario where you’d need this? For people with mobility issues the seat looks a bit flimsy and difficult to get on? Plus the weight to actually carry it might render it unusable again.

    Folding bikes cost less (at least before corona) and weigh also a lot less. Basically unlimited range and the damping is better than this.

    Wow $9.95 is such a great price 😅

    • Achim Steigert

      November 5, 2023 at 2:14 am

      I kind of assume that this is an auto-sub glitch. Pretty certain it’s $995.- 😊

      Ha ha 😂 you’re probably right

    This looks so stupid. It needs to not have those side panels always up.
    I thought this was going to be like like the laptop gun in perfect dark

    As someone who rides an e-scooter, I’m just thinking of how much this will hurt my balls whenever it goes over the tiniest crack in the road.

  27. HellBoyGrim666

    That things wicked slow 😂😂

    Except scooters like Spin and Lime, that you can just rent for a few bucks, can go up to 30 MPH and you don’t have to carry them anywhere because you just leave them on the sidewalk for the next person to rent. This scooter seems obsolete at that point, seeing as it weighs a ton and also looks to only go about 5-10 MPH lol.

    Is it faster than walking? 😅

  31. Geoffroi Le Hook

    November 5, 2023 at 2:41 pm

    I assume that’s $995.00

  32. Lemur

    When you have almost no where to go and also hate any form of exercise.

    Don’t get me wrong I’m all for it but this is some WALL-E stuff right here 😅

    who on earth would want a scooter that folds like a suitcase (but is not a suitcase)?

  37. Andro Werks
