I agree, the minipro is certainly a bargain currently. However, after some near-misses and a few safety-shutdowns (none of which resulted in an accident or fall), I remain very concerned about evasive handling/stopping and systems redundancy.

Agreed. I can't understand how people want their MPs to go FASTER. So far, I've only used my Mini in places that I know have forgiving terrain. I've started exploring a little bit with it. It's done a great job thus far. For some reason, I get more fatigued while riding it than I do with my i2. I think it's because it's not quite as stable, so I am always a bit tense in an effort to control it. If I simply relax, it will probably be more comfortable for me.

As mentioned, it's a good bargain. It's no replacement for my i2, but it's a great accessory for my newly-realized Segway lifestyle!

Default following fellow pedestrians

It must be difficult to resist the urge to dart around pedestrians. The mini pro looks fast on Chicago's sidewalks. Then it looks like it is standing still when following a crowd of people walking. I kept looking for openings the rider could dart through. Same tension you get when riding a sport bike in slow traffic. The rider having to resist openings that are easy to make but would be rude.

It seems to handle bumps well:
