Does what it says on the Tin

PostedMay 25, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
After reading numerous reviews etc. I was led to believe that this would be a suitable scooter for a five year old (fairly big for his age) who needs to upgrade from a three wheeler.
Indeed it is fine - he is very pleased, just what he wanted. Easy assembly / folding etc. Sturdy build, very good value for money.
Much smoother ride that his old scooter = much faster!
Cut lip, wobbly tooth, and banged head, but still going strong and enjoying it - such is life.

Brilliant - so long as you're small!

PostedMarch 23, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, fun
I bought this after reading the faqs carefully - as I'm a middle-aged woman, not a child. I wanted something that would be faster (and more fun) than walking but more portable than a bike - and I'd wanted a scooter since I was about 6. I've been out on it twice so far - going about 6 miles each time on a local cycle path, and I love it.
The handlebars are padded (though vibration still rattles through) and it has a rear wheel brake (useful - and not mentioned in the spec as far as I can remember).
Things to note, though. It is probably intended for kids - and smallish ones at that. The faqs all say it will cope with weights up to adult but if you are tall (whatever your age or weight) you may find the handlebars are low. They're just fine for me - but I'm 5ft 2 in. The overall length of the scooter platform is also quite short - amply long enough to scoot but not as long as two feet when you want to just ride. Again I'm fine with size 3 feet - but someone with bigger feet may not have room to ride with both feet on it at once.
It comes with necessary but amusing safety warnings - including 'This product moves when used' - er, yes, I'd rather hope so! :-) Users are also warned not to ride down slopes - which misses half the fun of having a scooter.
One other thing to note - my scooter arrived with a steel cable security tag on the front wheel. Anyone with a less heavy-duty collection of tools might have struggled. It gave my heaviest-duty wire cutters a hard time and really needed bolt cutters (or a friendly local dress shop?) to take it off!
