I was looking around on this site for info on the Ego SE Scooter. I am considering that and the Kasea electric (e-max "replacement"). Vectrix is sweet, but way too much money. I currently have a Goped ESR and think it's pretty much the worst. I have had nothing but problems with it since the beginning. I am on the third motor, second set of brushes, second power controller, etc. I think the Goped is over-hyped and a ultimately "tinkerers toy".
My riding consists of a 12% grade for one mile on the way to work. I weigh 170lbs and use it everyday to commute. What are your recommendations. I am looking for something to climb on and commute back and forth to work and the grocery store with little maintenance. Thanks for the help!
