It's funny, in how as I do more research on Patgear, only to see what's literally coming next from EcoReco some months down the line. There are literally walk-in stores for Patgear, along with accessories to add lights or baskets to the M3/M5, a pneumatic front tire for the M5, a more wear-resistant rear tire, and the red herring of regenerative braking. Hopefully we'll get the opportunity to upgrade our units instead of having to resell them for a newer model...

Yes, you get the idea! The Patgear has existed in other markets for quite a while now. Might I point out, the M5 EcoReco model here does have the new rubber tire that lasts longer. You can recognize it by the tread pattern. There is also multiple different types that have inner air spaces to soften the ride. I personally am quite glad they opted to use the solid front tire, as the extra "cush" of the pneumatic one isn't worth the trade off of less reliablilty (one of the strong points of this scooter after-all) and lessened range from the softer material absorbing motion energy into heat.
Was it you that mentioned selling your older model? What price were you thinking? I might end up taking you up on that at some point.

Yup, that was me! Looking to offload it somewhere around $600-700, considering the discount I already got from here and the current eBay going rate. The less I have to deal with fees, the happier I'll be.
