    I think this qualifies extra because of the description.

    'The bike is honestly bulletproof. I raced around portsmouth winning a fair few small races. The bike is definitely the underdog of any meet up and ride out. Nobody expects the bike that looks like it’s came out the tip to be passing you at double speed and then get half a meter of air over speed bumps and come out alive(true story)'

    This sounds a lot like someone on another cycle forum I occasionally browse who was asking about brakes in much the same way... all down to the forced questionable English and random sections of capitals. Turned out they were taking the piss in the end. What are the chances it's the same person...

    Got a couple of these as part of the subscription box thing. Immediately ordered a case of 12 as soon as they were on general sale. Super sweet but not unpleasantly so.

    Can recommend both @Silver-fox and @rwd for some successful and reasonably priced purchases recently.

    They've installed a new docking station thing here on the traffic calming island thing right outside our shop - which is a foot high with no dropped bits anywhere. Already watched a few people struggle to drag the heavy scooters up to park them - I'm waiting for the inevitable cocky twats trying to ride straight off the side, I'm hoping for plenty of entertainment.

    Nah, I haven't tried them, doesn't really appeal to me personally.
    They're not a bad idea in theory, and if it means that infrastructure that can also be used by bikes is generally improved, then I'm all for it.
    Unfortunately it hasn't made a blind bit of difference to scooters on pavements, nor the unlicensed 'illegal' scooters - but they certainly seem to be getting used plenty, and I'd say I probably see more people using the licensed scooters than personal ones, which I guess seems like a step in the right direction.

    Ask for a partial refund, or 100% request free postage, if you paid originally. Not on

    That's what I did - and they refunded my postage almost immediately. So as long as I get it once they're back, I'm happy with that outcome. Pleasingly drama free.

    be interesting to see if enforcement gets stepped up on private
    scooters and pavement usage now that these trials have gone live.

    Spoiler: it won't. We've had these sort of trials running in Portsmouth for a couple of months now. It's made absolutely fuck all difference.

    Perfect - I'll drop you a message!

    I was going to suggest the 10% refer-a-friend discount and it looks like they've discontinued it which is annoying. I'll keep looking though...
