I won't be able to buy this now but I will in the future!
Are you fucking me?
Crit
I don't think anyone is f*cking you. What exactly is your issue? Do you not understand what this item is?
Crit
Yes are you slow? If you have an issue shouldn't you state it? Or should we try and read your mind....
Do you ship it to the Europe Union?
When would the drop be back again?
oroing
It's back lol
when this item will re-launch the drop? I need it!
hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
After testing, I have confirmed the battery itself is borked. Scooter functions normally plugged into the wall. I have emailed the manufacturer but expect bad news.

If it was cruising along at a normal power level and speed it seems strange that it would suddenly die like that. By the sound of it, I would have expected the controller to have fried. (New ones can be ordered fairly cheap from Patgear) However since you say it is the battery, it's even more strange to suddenly and completely die. Lithium batteries HATE water, so a cell could have been ruined if it got wet, but I would expect that to be a little slower. Try a voltage ohm meter on the battery. See if it has any voltage at all. I would expect a water damaged battery to show a low voltage (too low for the scooter to power up) and a short damaged battery to show zero. One of the wires may have shorted and popped some kind of fuse? Or maybe burned a connection inside the pack?
You may be able to remove the shrink film from the pack and check it out. Do this only after other options are exhausted, such as contacting ecoreco about it. Worse case, the batteries can be had from Patgear as well for about $250.
I'm sad to say that after today, my scooter may be finished for good. :(

What happened?
AndrewLekashman
I was riding it in the rain and it shorted out or something. I don't know. I was riding like normal, then suddenly I lost throttle, the display flickered out, and then, nothing. The scooter was nearly fully charged when I left, I can only assume the unit is toast. It happened two hours ago and it's still dead.
Right now I guess I'm in a state of shock. As a 20 year old blue collar worker, this was my trusted transportation and a huge monetary investment. I'm outside of the six month warranty period, so I figure I'm just kind of, well, effed, outside of paying a hefty fine to some kind of local Felix Fix-It.
If I had to make a guess as to the problem, I'd hope it was the wiring on the scooter, which has a fairly ass-tastic build quality to it. Ever since I removed the cloth shielding from the wires to remove the handlebars and fix the busted button lock (as per the manual's instructions), the wires have been deteriorating at a very alarming pace. The rubber shielding is very brittle and has cracked to the wire in more places than I have fingers. I am praying to the RNG that it's just a broken wire and not a toasted battery or controller.
I hope the drop happens again soon. I'm ready to buy.
Can't believe I lost this drop.
Don't need one... but it looks pretty awesome.
Can Massdrop extend some days?
rofarias
Good idea - usually, for the highest end drops, Massdrop gives a 14 day allowance. It is a bit abrupt to give.a.week's time for a thousand dollar purchase.
Just bought it. Come on, people!!!
rofarias
You'll love this scooter, just take good care of it :)
Makes me sad nobody is buying :(
15 KG is not lightweight.
JakeSteele
Do you even lift?
hahahahahaha a $900 manual scooter? HAhahahahahaha

Yurp, it's a manual scooter alright. One capable of reaching 20 mph with virtually (literally) zero effort! It even has suspension!
I just got this in the mail and I had a major "lol wut" moment. You guys at Massdrop are awesome, thanks so much! I absolutely did not expect something like this at all! XD

For the record, my wrist healed well (still kinda getting a bit of the ache out of it). Definitely exercise caution on this scooter, though, if you're not careful you can get messed up on the wrong terrain.
I'd also like to mention that the EcoReco customer support are some stand up guys. I broke the button lock on the handlebars and they helped me get my stuff DIY'd back into shape.
Thanks, Massdrop Team! <3
Great news group! We’re happy to report that all of the orders have been shipped out from our warehouse and are now on the way to you! Please allow 24-48 hours for tracking to get into the shipper's system and start updating.
Thanks again for the support guys. Drop by the discussion board and share your experience with the EcoReco Scooter. The community would love to hear your thoughts.
If there’s anything else we can do to make your Massdrop experience better, feel free to email us at support@massdrop.com.

package was shipped to NJ when I live in Washington State! Now, UPS lost the package & they are trying to figure out where it is.......... this has become a nightmare & I have decided that once was enough in ordering from this site! Good day.
Another update for the group. The bulk order arrived at our warehouse late today and our team was able to get roughly 80% of orders out the door today. The few outstanding orders will be going out shortly. We will update the group when all remaining orders have shipped.
Expect an update from us on 1/2 or sooner if something comes up.
I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THE ESTIMATED TIME OF DELIVERY FOR THIS DROP....... At this time it might be best to pay the regular price so that I can get this item in the next week. Thank you, Kevin N.
Suggestion for future drops... It should be required that the manufacturer is able to handle a realistic delivery of the product. There is no reason we should be waiting for an overseas shipment to arrive. Is it too much to ask for them to have 13 or more of these items in stock when a drop is initiated? Makes me wonder about future support.
bookland
Hi, Bookland, sorry for the delay. We had quite a bit of inventory before the drop started and we timed the end of the drop several days after our next big shipment. To our surprise (in a good way), all our inventory sold out quickly as soon as people were in the holiday shopping moods, and the strike/congestion were worse than anyone anticipated. We really wanted to bring our popular products to MassDrop instead of using MD to dump inventory. In the future, we would make the MD campaign shorter so there is less guessing in inventory planning.
Hi, guys, thanks for all your supports and we apologize sincerely for a huge delay for this drop. Due to the holiday shipping congestion and LA port worker strike, our shipment have been hold at Port of Oakland for more than 3 weeks (even though we passed the customs in the first week of Dec already). We are eagerly waiting for the shipment to make the drop and to fulfill the demands on our website and for all others retailers. We will update the situation once we get any visibility about the delivery date. *For those have to expect a late gift, please print out our gift card (http://bit.ly/13c1dJU) for you loved ones and put under the tree. Thanks for your patience again. -EcoReco team

Thank you for the update.... When it comes to strikes there is not much anyone can do about it. Hopefully the workers are able to negotiate a great deal for the foreseeable future & we can get our products sometime in the new year. :)~ Thank you all for you do. Kevin N. Headed home to Seattle region to live in 24 1/2 hours....... my scooter will arrive when I am all settled in..... I can wait :)~
Quick update for the group. I just got off the phone with the vendor and they notified me the container hasn't been released yet. They have minimal visibility into US Customs and the strike on the docks and because of this any ETAs that they receive are just estimates.
In light of this it is very unlikely that these will arrive this week, due to the Christmas Holiday that our shipping partner will not be operating on. We will be coordinating with the vendor throughout the process and try and save transit time wherever we can to try and get these into your hands ASAP.
We also understand this delay is rather undesirable. If you prefer not to wait for the Scooter and want to have your order cancelled, just email us at support@massdrop.com, and we will process the refund right away.
If there’s any feedback or concerns, please feel free to email us back at support@massdrop.com
Expect an update from us on 12/30 or sooner if something comes up.
Quick update for the group. The vendor let us know that due to complications on the docks they are still waiting for their shipment to arrive at their warehouse. Current ETA they have from their forwarder is tomorrow 12/19. If everything goes according to plan these will be picked up by our shipper and on their way to our warehouse. We will be expediting this shipment inbound and hope to get these in by the middle of next week. We will be working hard to get these into your hands as soon as possible. Regardless of what happens count on us to keep you looped in through the whole group buying process.
Expect an update from us on 12/24 or sooner if something comes up.
HassanS
Thank you for the update. These days we tend to think everything runs on a smooth scheduled system, when in fact, there are always bumps & bruises on the way! Keep in mind that we hope for a safe arrival on all ends. Thank you for all that you do, Kevin N.
Does this EcoReco Facebook post affect our order?
Guys. Thank you for purchasing EcoReco e-Scooter this holiday season. Due to the customs and port congestion at Port of Oakland, we had experienced a 16-day delay (!!) in receiving our shipment. We were told by the shipping forwarder that we could pull out our containers this Friday (Dec 19) such that we will ship out all the back-orders right afterward. Really hope the scooter can arrive at your door steps before Xmas. Fingers crossed, and thanks for your patience once again. *For those have to expect a late gift, please print out our gift card (http://bit.ly/13c1dJU) for you loved ones and put under the tree.
Uh, be careful riding on the sidewalk with this. I hit a bump, got thrown off my scooter and broke my wrist. The suspension on the front isn't a foolproof safety net for rough terrain.
Philosofikal
Hi, Philosofikal, sorry to hear that and wish you a speedy recovery. You are right that everyone should pay more attention on the roads and obstacles, especially for a vehicle like this. The smaller wheel is inevitable more sensitive to bumps on the road and we would like everyone to understand the tradeoff as well. Thanks.
Thanks again for joining the drop with the community. We submitted the group’s order with the vendor for the EcoReco Scooter shortly after the drop ended and they have begun preparing it for shipment.
Once the group’s order is ready at the vendor’s location, they will send the bulk shipment to our fulfillment center where we’ll break it up into individual orders and ship them off to you as soon as possible.
The moment we receive confirmation regarding the shipping schedule from the vendor, we will provide you guys with updated information on the status of your package.
Expect an update from us on 12/18 or sooner.

Can we get an update?
nelson
December 18th has come and gone without an update. Any word yet? What's the status?
How much is the shipping to Canada?
keeish
$30 extra
I would highly suggest that anybody who wants an electric scooter build it themselves. Its really not that hard. You attach a motor to a battery and add a switch/potentiometer. Done. Slightly easier said then done but you get the point. Buy a non motor scooter and mod it out. Easy.
What is the weight capacity, and how efficient is it going up steep hills?
noisyturtle
The listed weight capacity is 250 lbs, the scooter can hold a heftier person, but will lose top speed and mileage. From my understanding speed and range reduce quite a bit on steep hills if you choose not to kick--but folks ride these things all over San Francisco so I wouldn't worry about it too much
