DocDon Posted August 9, 2007 Report Share Posted August 9, 2007 SAN FRANCISCO - The device that was supposed to revolutionize urban transportation seems unable to even hold on to a proper fan club.The Segway Enthusiasts Group of America is disbanding because of inactivity and an absence of candidates for its board of directors, said the group's treasurer, Fred Kaplan.When the Segway debuted, executives at the exclusive preview predicted that it would have no trouble selling and that entire U.S. cities would eventually be designed to take advantage of its capabilities — which can move people at up to 12 mph.Still, the Segway can be too pricey for even for personal electronics-hungry American consumers. The base model Segway PT i2 carries a suggested retail price of $5,145, and SEG America's Kaplan says replacement batteries cost about $1,600 per pair.---------------------when walking is free....
