I Already bought one here in my city, they had several lime scooters and 2 jump bikes.
I Can post pictures if needed, the mais problem is the battery, its a 36v 10s4p custom made battery for uber, it has a unique BMS in it that connects to the bike controller placed inside the headstock AND the board on the handlebar that contais the gsm/sim module, if the controller does not communicate with both controller and sim board (probably to receive a message/code from uber servers) the battery BMS will stop charging, the cheeky Uber tech designers made this to prevent expensive batteries gone missing.
Is it caked in silicone so much that it's more trouble than its worth to re-solder the sensing leads to a new BMS?
And any chance the other bike may still be available? Or if you get bored with yours, let me know. I'm 100% game.
Incidentally, I've been speaking with one recycler in the industry, and it appears - given the Lime/Jump merger - the remaining bicycles will probably be scrapped in the next three weeks or so - Lime has no interest in continuing any e-bike operations. The wheelsets are already showing up on eBay for sale.
