Default Mini Pro seat

Any such thing available? Have seen a couple for the X2 and PT full sized Segways but none for the Mini.

Have you thought about how that would work? Your center of gravity must be essentially directly over the platform (i.e., vertical). So, where would the knee bar go?

Saw that! Is a possibility. Big thing is she wants to use this mini as a mobility device in places like Walmart. The stories are that such places look at the mini as a hoverboard and the juvenile antics related and ban such in malls and big box stores. Got a valid handicapped mirror tag and intend to test that. A seat would convince the store that granny is not gonna roll over everyone.

Your comment on cg is valid. Any errors will be immediately noticed!

I see a lack of traction due to no weight being on the wheels. Works OK on the level though judging by the video.

Braking (particularly going downhill) would be a problem, too.
