    Great price NC! Could also stack with 10% cashback via CR I think.

    Seems to also come with a Yeelight Motion Sensor Nightlight, not 100% sure how it's added to the order however.

    Max Speed is definitely faster than 18 km/h. Mine regularly hits over 20 and not going downhill either.

      Not true. Cruise control also goes more than that. I think they have an economy mode that does max 15/18. Standard is faster than 20 for sure including cruise control

    Slightly off topic but seeing this and official store, does anyone know if they started selling Roidmi 3s car charger? I couldn't find on their website and most of the chinese shops have tripled in price.

    it's so hard to change the tires… mine is sitting unused after a tire went flat

    • +1 vote

      It's a design issue that is well known where the tube does get damaged during the ride. I went through two tubes in less than 6 months.

      It's so known that in China there are non-tube based or non-air based tires being sold. I got one of those a short while back but hadn't had the chance to change it yet as it is very difficult to change the tires as you mentioned.

        Keeping the tyre pressure at 45-50psi (for 80kg payload) will eliminate flats from the tube chafing inside the tyre. Will also prevent pinch-flats. I slimed my tyres and have done 450km in 6 months with no flats. The most annoying thing is the front-drive rear-brake setup - you get wheel-spin going up hills, and you have to be really conscious of putting your weight over the back wheel when braking. Other than that, it’s an awesome little scooter, esp w custom firmware!

          Agree with the front-drive rear-brake. How to distribute weight for this scooter is something to get used to.

      Did you slime them?

        Its not impossible to change them, just get a small set of tyre levers. Getting it back on is the hardest but with a bit of soapy water its doable. The whole job took me about 30 mins

      A bike shop will do it for you for about $30, very worth it.

      •  

        which bike shop did you use? would be interesting to hear how you found one that provided the service.

        • +1 vote

          99 bikes did it, though it is probably hit and miss whether each outlet will agree to it. Segway Ninebot in Milton Brisbane have also claimed to do it. Simply call around - they are common enough that they are aware of whether they can do it or not.

            @xmail: thanks. could you share if you needed to provide your own replacement tires? and what tires did you put on?

            i tried for 2 hours to put on solid tires and it drove me crazy as it wouldn't fit on. i would pay a bike shop anytime $30 or more to change them for me

            • +1 vote

              @KissandLove: I had the same experience. Ended up taking it to a neighborhood bike shop who ended up doing it for free, even though they acknowledge that it is indeed not an easy job (and these guys change bike tires for a living).

            •  

              @KissandLove: Supplied own tires/tubes, the stock ones that come with the scooter. These can be had for a few bucks on eBay. Would never go solid, nor a scooter without suspension (I've upgraded since).

      I've done mine a couple times but I got sick of flats so I've gone with solid tyres for now.

      Try leaving the tyre in boiling water for about 10-15 minutes before you try. Apply oil (I used cooking spray) on the rim. Apply talcum powder on the tube to prevent it pinching. Push one end of tyre on rim, get someone to hold that end or kneel on it, then use force to push the rest of the tyre on. It's easier with two people as you need to apply pressure as you push it on to prevent it popping off when you push the next bit on.

      You might need a flathead screwdriver for leverage on the last bit but be careful not to pinch the tube.

      I've also seen a video on Reddit which uses 2 clamps and it looks easy. Let me know if you want it and I'll pm you.

      •  

        That would be good if you could send it to me, thanks. i've bought the solid tired but do you need to get inner tubes as well?

        •  

          Instead of a solid tire, I bought a tubeless one. Hope it'll solve the problem once and for all.

      •  

        I've also see various youtubes on it… seen some people put it in the microwave to soften it up, which I wouldn't do as I cook food in the microwave…

        Maybe i'll try the boiling water option. But based on your solution, it is obvious that it's not as easy as one might expect (and definitely much more difficult than changing a bike tire).

    Good to see a low price from Xiaomi Australia. Harvey Norman stocks the Pro and maybe this in the future.

    I may be wrong however aren't these illegal to use on public roads and footpaths in much of Australia? Surely it's responsible for those selling these devices to outline this fact.

    •  

      Yep but see more and more people using these on the streets. Hopefully the laws will be updated sooner rather than later (only legal in QLD atm)

    • +5 votes

      Different rules in different states. People can run the risk.

      If you are going about 10kms per hour then you are within the rules, unless they want to dyno test it.

      If you ride on the road as say 15 / 18kms unlikely you will get pulled over by laser speed detector in a police car.

      But it is a nanny state and anything could happen.

        It’s pretty ludicrous in my eyes that a Scooter is illegal when in South Australia it’s now legal to ride a bike (as an adult) on the footpath, though I think only where there isn’t a designated bike path. But seeing that South Australia banned petrol bicycle conversions I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. :/ We’ve got some weird and wonderful laws that’s for sure.

    • +1 vote

      Yeah, it's so annoying. I'd use one of these to commute to work (saving me money and helping take the load of peak hour public transport), but it's just not worth the risk of getting fined (especially since my commute would go right past a police station). How bloody long does it take to get some legislation sorted? Honestly….

      •  

        I've been using mine in Sydney now for 6 months daily commute with a helmet no issues with police. I've gone past several police both walking and in patrol car and they didn't flinch. One patrol car even stopped for me at the crossing! As long as you have a helmet and are not pushing over kids and pensioners on the footpath you'll be ok.

        PS. My tires have had no issues either still on the originals…I am very careful about riding over anything including stones and sticks so I think that really helps in extending tyre life.

        • +1 vote

          I rode it for about 6 months too without hassle, but then at the same time it is in the rule book that it is NOT legal so it's a case where it's great the police so far have no issues with it but I must say there is a risk and the police does have the right to stop and fine you if they decide to.

    Obviously not seen the speeds scooters like this are getting on the BNE bikeways…

      Same! I'm hoping it doesn't look as bad in real life as it does in the picture. But couldn't pass up the discount!

  •  

    I would love to rent 2 of these for a day or weeks. Can't justify buying in this regulatory environment.

  •  

    mine sits on 30 kmph with a firmware hack

  •  

    For those wanting the black one, it is $527.12 at Catch, instead of $599. Delivery is $40 though, but free delivery for Catch Club members. Cash back however is only 1%.

  •  

    I have been wondering if you can find a safe way to park it or just carry it around shopping centre(bus terminal)?

  •  

    A friend was pushed from behind and almost knocked over by a person riding one of these scooters recently in Sydney, and the scooter rider didn't stop and sped off since these are very quick…

      No wonder they're ilegal

      • +2 votes

        I wouldn't exactly say this is a reason why they're illegal. Otherwise they should ban cars considering the amount of people hit and killed by them every year, and some of those speed off too.

  •  

    I ordered one, but havent recieved anything tracking details from the store, anyone else in the same boat?

    I have emailed them, so we'll see how it goes.

    cheers,

    •  

      Mine arrived on Tuesday. SE QLD.

      •  

        interesting - they replies immediately saying that it had been sent and included the tracking number. Just requested an update from CouriersPlease, as it has been in transit from Sydney since 6th, and i have an email from CP asking how my recent delivery was. Im confused.

        How does it go?!

        • +1 vote

          Got the same emails. The 'how did we go' email came about a day after getting the parcel.

          Goes great! I've firmware hacked it and it's actually so fast now that it really feels a little unsafe at the speeds it is capable of. The default speed is still great though. I'm trying out my first commute with it tomorrow.
