    I saw these scooters all over Santa Monica & discovered they were owned by a company started by an x Uber executive called Birdride. They are placed all over the city and a phone app is used to rent them. What’s really nice is you rent, travel and leave them at your destination. Pretty much anywhere. I used them multiple times before deciding to buy one.
    I’m not discounting the negative reviews. I’ve watched a few vids of rider abuse by taking the scooter off road as well as witnessing abuse by Bird renters. I knew going in the fold down bar can become loose. Users have already figured a fix with a 3D printed shim that can be purchased on Ebay. My thinking is that if it can hold up to rental use it should not have issues if taken care of. Also with thousands now everywhere I expect a fix for any problem that arises.
    That said, my initial impression is the Xiaomi M365 is a high quality product. It arrived mostly assembled with the exception of the handlebar that required 4 screws to install.
    Also nice they include two extra tires and tubes. I’ve noticed some pretty nice solid tire options but considering there is no suspension I’ll stick with air unless flats become a problem.
    I haven’t tested the range but I expect to get the 18 miles you would need to be on flat ground in eco mode, little stop and go & no wind. I saw an IG post where a couple on Bird rentals made it to Hollywood from Venice Beach. That’s over ten miles with a lot of stop and go. I assume Birds scooters run in some type of energy saving mode.

    Braking is great. The front wheel uses some type of regenerative braking that charges the battery, the back disk brake adds kinda a trail braking effect. I’ve seen people thinking they needed to adjust the back to make it brake harder but I think the set-up from the factory is perfect & adds stability when braking in turns.

    Speed. In standard mode the top speed of 15 mph is great and I don’t think you want to go over that with 8 1/2 inch wheels. Eco mode is ok if you need to extend range. It tops out at 11 MPH. In all modes climbing hills is difficult, small grades are ok especially if you are light. This is where your body weight makes a huge difference. I weigh of 200 lbs so hills are slow going and kill the battery.

    Charging. 5 hours and charger get hot. A fast charging option would be nice

    Lights: Lights are great, the scooter even has a flashing brake light.

    Fun: Yes! Buzzing around town on this is great. It’s a useful toy. I wouldn’t consider this a daily driver unless your commute is short.

    **** I’ll continue to update
    Update 3/10: Regarding the fold down bar issue. I haven’t purchased the 3D shim & mine hasn’t become loose but after hearing a creaking sound on bumps I placed a couple pieces of electrical tape on the inside of the joint and now its completely silent.. I’m also adding a small piece of tape over the hook to stop wear due to vibration. I noticed Birdride has made a retrofit piece that completely goes in place & removes the fold down feature, I like the feature and prefer to keep it but I included a photo of Birds setup.

    Update 6/3: Got my first flat tire at around 600 miles. It was the rear and using a youtube instructional video was able to replace it with one of the included tubes. Was not easy but I’ve not changed a bike tire so had no experience.
    Removing the back wheel was not difficult but the actual tire removal and reinstall takes wrist strength and technique. Getting the tire back on was the most difficult and I damaged one of my replacement tubes first go round because I was doing it wrong. To get the rear back tire on you need to use your knee or foot to hold the tire in place while using the two tire sticks to push the tire in position. Be careful not to bend the disk brake.
    Also I looked at solid tire options on youtube & reading comments these seem nearly impossible to install and have a negative effect on speed and ride.
    In general the scooter has been problem free. I’ve learned what parts need oiled for silent ride. I’m still layering electrical tape to keep the hinge tight.

    Broken app but still excellent, April 9, 2018

    Ordered April 2018. The scooter turned on and was ready to go straight out of the box. The Mi Home and Ninebot app were not able to connect to the scooter though, this meant I was unable to turn on Cruise Control or check my speed, etc.

    The folding mechanism has a little rattle on it when riding, people online have used cheap 3D printed parts to sort out that problem, you can also try sticking some some thin rubber or folded paper in there as well.

    After riding for several days without Cruise Control my right thumb hurts a bit from constantly using the throttle. The apps and scooter are still unable to connect to one another. I’ve even tried switching my location to overseas but all that does is mess up the language and still won’t connect to the scooter. My phone also doesn’t detect any bluetooth signal coming from the scooter, is it broken I wonder?

    **APP: 2 WEEKS IN UPDATE**
    I got the app working ONCE on my Pixel 2 phone: turned on Mi Home app, click (+) on the app to add a new device, turned on scooter, and it connected! I was finally able to turn on Cruise Control which helped a ton when you’re doing a long commute on a clear street / bike lane. After that I couldn’t get it to connect again but at least I turned on the one feature I wanted.

    Updated to 1.3.8 firmware: the scooter accelerates off the line slower, but because of this it saves some power and it gets closer to the advertised range. I also noticed a bit more torque going up inclines? I’m not saying its going to go up a steep hill at 15mph but I think my 6mph neighborhood hill climb is now going slightly faster at 8mph. Side note: It took me about 6 times to connect my phone for the firmware update, the app still sucks.

    **TIRES: 4 WEEKS IN UPDATE**
    Now I’ve tested both the latest solid tire option from China (145mm inner diameter, generation 2.5 or whatever) and the original tire & tube option. The solid tires are garbage: super heavy, no grip so I ended up losing control a few times, fell once, the scooter accelerated at 1/2 the speed, think I lost 1/2 the mileage, and they transmit every bump on the road to the point of launching you off the scooter. The pneumatic tire & tube option is what the scooter was designed for and it is what I will stick to. You can add slime sealant or a bicycle liner to prevent punctures on the original tire. I added about 2oz of slime to each of my wheels and I’ve pulled out sharp metal debris without any leaks, it’s also just enough to coat the inner tube without adding too much of a weight penalty.

    **MISC**
    This scooter is the best bang for buck purchase around the $400 mark, other scooters are either too slow or too expensive. I’ve been using this as my primary commuter / transport and only use my car once a week to get groceries. So far so good! I want to point out another good thing about this scooter is the large community behind it. You can google M365 Forum or help and you can get answers to most of the questions you have and links to purchase replacement parts. I tried to do research on a few competing scooters in the price range and came up short when looking for replacement parts / troubleshooting.
