I’m borrowing Jeremie’s foot-scooter. I’m like this bullet on the footpaths now. I love it. It’s like probably 5-10 times faster than walking. It’s actually kinda a little exercise… I got kinda sweaty after making a run to dymocks and back ; 15 minutes one way on foot, 3 minutes on the scooter.
Some bad things though: Hard wheels have no shock absorbsion, so all the little cracks in the pavement, not to mention the numerous cobblestone areas around Wellington go straight into my ankles. If I was to buy my own one, it’d have to have tires or shock absorbers.
Edit: Removed the link to Jeremie’s website – seems he’s using it for a test platform for another site.
