I decided to sell the NIU Uqi – I sold it for cash in early December 2022.

There were a number of reasons.

I no longer felt safe at a speed that was lower than the majority of other motor traffic – an indicated 28mph was an actual 25 mph in most cases. This led to a number of unsafe overtaking manoeuvres. I wasn’t using the bike enough to get the value out of the not inconsiderable cost of the insurance.

I sold it to Wheels of Leicester for a fair price – obviously not as much as I’d have liked, but I’m content with the addition to my bank balance (and they settled the same day).

I’m considering an electric bicycle.

Bye bye NUI (not quite a rhyme)
