I've never had a scooter before in my life, but after I purchased for my daughter a scooter for Christmas (not a micro) I realised that this would be a good idea to reduce my 20 minute commute of walking from the station to work, so that I'd also get into work earlier as well as take with me to the park with her to keep up if necessary.
I tried a few scooters in the shop, which was best as its very useful to feel how heavy these scooters are. I tried the micro flex (very nice to scoot on, and bigger wheeels, but struggled with the stiff folding mechanism, had two goes, but heavy). I tried the Micro White (very very nice to scoot on, biggest wheels, super smooth and goes a long distance easily, but knew I'd struggle with the weight as I'd have to carry it on the tube. I tried the jd bug this had an easier folding mechanism than the Flex, and was alot lighter but for me was still a struggle to extend/fold. The two I found easiest to fold were the Micro White and the Sprite. As soon as I tried the Sprite I was able to fold this easily, and it was the lightest and cheapest out of all of them which for me was a consideration. I do like the kickstand functionality as well.
I haven't yet tried this on my commute yet, but hope that this will be a very positive purchase. The Sprite is not designed for stunts which I'm fine with, that was explained in the shop however as I won't be using it for that purpose, I'm not fussed. If you want to do stunts you need a different micro scooter. I've ordered the micro bag in a bag to carry it in. Depending on how this experiment goes maybe in future I'd get the Micro White, or Micro Carbon Sprite (super light, 2.1 kg but most expensive) but we'll see. I'll update this review after I've used it to reduce my commute to advise how much walking time has been shaved off.
