Segway products are unmatched for quality but should you ever have a problem, rest assured, Rocky Mountain Segway is here for the long haul and you will be serviced by the best of the best. Having been an Authorized Segway Distributor since 2004 we are one of only two Dealers in the entire USA with Level III Factory Certified Service and Repair capabilities. We genuinely love what we do and you too might find the history of our passion as compelling...
In May, 2002 we were watching a television episode starring Richard Dryfuss and Peter O'Toole (The Education of Max Bickford, ep. 21) wherein they casually rode Segway Human Transporters (HTs) around the Chadwick University campus. It really caught our attention, but having never seen or heard of such a device we dismissed it as a bit of TV fantasy. In 2003 however, we read that the US Postal Service really began field testing "Segway HTs" and a limited number of them were even sold to the public thru Amazon.com.
Then, the following Spring (2004) I was sitting in a cafè and saw one zip by. Whoa! I abandonded my java and ran shouting after the fellow who stopped to talk with me. As it were, Mr. Dan Sturges was a local consultant to Segway corporate testing a prototype, and he kindly gave me a brief lesson.
...I cautiously stepped up, stood perfectly still and Dan said: "just think (the word) "forward". Well okay; I silently chanted 'fourword' and awaiting his next instruction the thing started rolling ahead so I figured he must have some sort of remote control. What next (?) I anxiously asked, and Dan responded: "now think backward" ...then hmmm(!); I began moving backward. And so it went, with Dan leaving me his business card and confounding whether the Segway had really read my mind. Needless to say, I was impressed and intent to know more.
At that time we owned a luxury car dealership and were drawn to transportation alternatives for reducing our carbon footprint. After assisting NHTSA, ICE and Homeland Security to regulate importing the very first European Smart Cars for USA roads in 2003, we were also appointed to several government transportation committees. Combine all these passions with our love of Colorado and voilà - by Fall (2004) we also began our Segway 'career' as the manufacturer's Authorized Dealer for the Rocky Mountain region plus co-hosted a local conference featuring many urban planning, automotive and transportation luminaries, including Dean Kamen (the Segway HT inventor).
We've been promoting, selling and servicing Segways ever since, with the added satisfaction of working with Craig Hospital for spinal cord and brain injured patients, the Veterans Administration (VA) and Rocky Mountain Multiple Sclerosis Center. Too, we have had the great fortune and honor to help celebrated War Veterans and meet some of the bravest people and finest athletes in our nation. As our ‘passion’ became our ‘vocation’ we were also appointed to the Committee that drafted Colorado's State House Bill 09-1026, which former Governor Ritter signed into law making Colorado the 45th Segway friendly state.
Today, as we witness our carbon footprint increase and natural resources decline we are ALL part of the challenge to reduce traffic congestion, oil dependency and air-pollution. Toward these ends, Rocky Mountain Segway is committed to introducing and sustaining the most efficient transportation to help make our planet, country and community a safer and greener place to live.
We also value the difference that one person can make and continue to take affirmative steps to promote personal transportation choices and more intelligent mobility. We support low-speed operation of the Segway Personal Transporter for safe and courteous use on bike lanes, neighborhood streets and (modestly traveled) multi-use paths and further call upon all prominent user groups, including pedestrians, bicyclists and Segway enthusiasts to work together with local government to jointly develop guidelines of mobile etiquette, the regulatory environment and oversight of these pathways.
