    Mobike...

    Post by Adam Mint on Thu 13 Jul 2017 - 18:08

    When I read about these Mobikes coming to Manchester I think Ah, ideal for going pub to pub and getting home...

    Sora same idea as Londons Boris bikes but no docking station, so sounds like you just pick them up and drop them where you want, but not the case, app on your phone tells you where nearest bike is, you pay 50p for half a hours use, you book it on phone and have 15 minutes to get to bike, so bike located you head next pub or home,,, No,,, although the bikes have no docking station you have to drop them off at designated locations which at the moment are few and far between, so it's not as flexible as it first sounds...

    I've only seen three of them, one being ridden and two dumped outside a city centre pub (not a designated parking spot), oh, if you do not return bike to designated parking area they fine you through your phone...

    They also have thief proof locking system that your phone app unlocks, "thief proof",,, mmmm, have a look at video...

    When these "Mobikes" were launched in Manchester they were promoted as being theft proof and maintenance free for something like three or five years, can't remember which...

    Would seem both statements untrue, you see them being ridden about by ned's and lying about abandoned all over the place, plus now this,,,

    So much for maintenance free...

    Electric cars or buggys is a very obvious progression from these bikes. They have the bikes in Brighton as well but they look a bit heavy. Wont need a driving licence as it wont have any controls, just punch in a post code and off it goes home. Will just sit there then until someone else in the locality wants one and up it will trundle, just like a taxi but more reliable....... Your buggy is 416 metres away, waiting time is approx. 63 seconds. Future innit.

    Not just kids, saw loads of no good sorts (20/30 year olds) drug dealers and so called homeless riding about on them with the locks ripped off, one had even painted the whole thing black to try and disguise it... There's a bit in one of the articles above asking why the police took no action when they saw someone on one that had obviously been stolen,,, the polices reply basically said if your gonna leave stuff lying around the streets as a business you need to put something in place to protect it, we've got more important things to do...
