One to avoid, seriously flawed.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Heard a lot of hype about this scooter and so did my son. Now I wish I had never heard a thing.
It lasted a couple of weeks before it started giving way, I mean the main pillar would fold itself down as you are riding it. Sent it back to supplier who said it showed signs of misuse. OK, but my son had a cheapie JD bug which lasted him through years of identical type of usage.
The sprite looks nice and light but is seriously flawed. The lock mechanism has this black material which literally disintegrates like charcoal as the bolt goes in and comes out. After a couple of weeks it could not keep the lock in place, hence the thing bending down each time you hit a small bump.
