" I purchased this for my 13 y.o. son this past Christmas. Assembly was easy and straight forward since it comes mostly assembled. It was a surprise gift and my intent was to try to get him something that would get him OUTSIDE & AWAY FROM TV & COMPUTER GAMES! Boy was he surprised! The problem is, his 9 y.o. sister is now a bit jealous... unfortunately, she is under the reccomended operator age. Fortunately, they can both ride at the same time (he standing & she sitting.) Although I don't officially condone duel ridership, my kids are only allowed to ride with safety helmets & safe riding reminders. Together they are well below the weight limitation or I wouldn't allow them to ride together. Too bad I'm currently over the weight limit because it looks like alot of fun! So far the scooter holding up well & if I drop a few pounds, who knows, I might get one for myself! "

" Excellent workmanship, I have had it for 2 years and ridden it hard, it does everything as advertized. The throttle could have been made more sturdy, the plastic max limiter broke simply from holding on to the handlebar over rough terrain, I fabricated a piece out of aluminum and screwed it on and it works fine.
This scooter is a toy rather than serious transportation, justifiably so considering the price, it still is a lot of fun for the money.
In my opinion Schwinn can have a real hit at 2.5 times the price with the following modifications: 1. Add suspension as on a previous model now discontinued. 2. Add ample mudguards and weatherproof the battery compartment and electronic controls. 3. Larger more comfortable seat with front brake, headlight and rear break light. 4. Double the motor powe for more speed. 5. Triple or quadruple battery capacity for more speed and range. There is plenty of battery room vertically from the current compartment, footrests can be on the side with comfort. 6. A storage compartment or a second seat behind the rider. 7. An instrument pod with a few gauges would be nice.
The result would be a serious commuter electric bike in the $750-800 range.
