The wheels are larger, the construction materials are better quality and the overall machine is in a different league to most Hoverboards. This is why I have included it in the electric scooter comparison table. As the Segway is also generally built to be a professional use vehicle they are much more expensive than any self-balancing hoverboard scooter. It’s not uncommon to see Mall Cops and Airport Security people riding Segways because they are quiet and convenient.
The UScooter was born about five years ago, under another name: E-Twow. (It stands for Electric Two Wheels, and you pronounce it E-2. It makes no sense.) It’s the work of Romanian engineer Sorin Sirbu and his team in Jinhua, China. Sirbu’s friend Brad Ducorsky helped with the development and is now responsible for the improved, better-named Americanized version.
Note: For oversized bikes, there might be a chance that our trucking company driver cannot unload this bike with liftgate on his own. The reason is that there is no lift gate big enough to unload this bike and this bike is too heavy for one person to unload. If our trucking company informs us so, you are expected to have several friends to help our truck driver to unload the bike when it arrives at your door. You can also provide a business address with a forklift to us for delivery or you can go to trucking company local terminal to pick up your bike.

Bernd test rode this ebike at several stages in the development, and at this point he noticed the rear single-speed freewheel had no problems tracking the chain, but the chainring at the bottom-bracket kept dropping the chain. Bicycle chains are able to shift external gears with a derailleur because they are designed to tolerate a certain amount of sideways offset in the chainline. Although the custom chainguides he fabricated and welded-in are an unconventional solution, he is satisfied with how quietly and reliably the chain tracks now.
Unlike self-balancing scooters or hoverboards majority of which were recalled by the United States’ Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) due to safety concerns, electric scooters have not had issues with the commission.
The E200 from Razor is a great little scooter and basically where the adult range begins. Its biggest problem is basically the E300, which is better or the same on every count and priced far too closely for comfort. I’m not even going into too much detail here – if you’re in the market for a scooter like this, check out the current price for the E300. If the price difference is less than fifty bucks get the E300. Especially if you weigh more than the 150 pounds the E200 supports.
