My first experience and I found it too be too fast for me, but my son has no problems with it. I rode about 4 min minutes and decided to end my ride and the darn thing would not stop! The app that went into a perpetual downloading mode and the time continued on! It’s Saturday and I called the number on the scooter itself, in addition to two other customer service numbers from the internet and no one picked up bc business hours are Monday through Friday. When it was all over it had been 35 minutes and now I had to find a valid parking spot. I checked the requirements as listed on the app and still it took a total of 4 minutes to get it in the exact spot! Omg! I was charged for 39 minutes for a 4 minute spin!! I am so disappointed!
Well, looks like I owe Spin scooter an apology...I WAS WRONG!!! Apparently, these guys do work the weekends. One of the calls I made allowed me to leave a message. I explained my issue and left my email address and phone number. After being home a little over an hour , I again checked the app , and to my surprise, noticed my account had been refunded! I had a missed voicemail from Phill with Spin support advising me that he had located the scooter and my activity and refunded me. It WAS THAT EASY!!!! They jumped right on it and resolved the problem. I AM SO IMPRESSED! THIS IS EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE. Thank you and I’m amazed at your professionalism and quick reponse.
Huge design flaw...
#1 A cell phone holder would be great so that we can use google maps for route guidance while riding and not have to stop so much and pull out our phones, reopen the map app, wait for it to orient to our new location, etc.
#2 Design Flaw: I was riding along the sidewalk when I realized I was about to ride off the curb. I quickly jumped my feet off the board to bring myself to a stop, but my hands were still gripping the handle bars and therefore the throttle. You would probably think it’s easy to let go of the throttle, but when you are riding as fast as the scooter will go and then take your feet off in order to stop the thing, your grip becomes tighter because it is the only thing keeping the scooter to you. You are wanting to come to a quick and complete stop, not launch the scooter down the street or off the curb. Anyhow, this is how you see people stumble-running with a scooter. It’s because your body doesn’t let you release your grip (and throttle) and so the wheels keep spinning, so the scooter keeps going.
The Solution: there should be a weight sensor in the foot board so that as soon as there’s no more weight on the board the [motor] acceleration stops. Again, as soon as a person steps off of the foot board the motor cuts off. You don’t have to apply the brakes—stopping the motor’s acceleration should be enough help to prevent someone from crashing or stumbling when trying to quickly stop.
Enjoyable, but not dependable at all
On my college campus these bikes are super convenient and fast, but only when everything goes right. It can be very difficult to locate a bike- more times than I can count, the bike doesn’t exist where the map says it is, which is a huge pain when I’m trying to find one to get to class on time. When I do actually find a bike, sometimes the bike doesn’t unlock but the timer begins- making it impossible to find another bike if you’re short on time. Using Bluetooth to lock or unlock a bike is also quite fickle when this happens. Sometimes the app asks me for my payment information again, even though I already have money loaded on my account. I would say that about 75% of my rides have gone perfectly fine. They are not dependable at if you are in a rush to get somewhere, and oftentimes when something goes wrong, it can take longer to fix/look for another bike than if you had just walked to your destination in the first place.
I do have to commend the support team, who usually fix any problem quickly. One time I accidentally forgot to lock a bike after a perfectly fine ride, and they refunded the whole ride to me. The bikes have adjustable seats and the step-through style are really nice.
