I purchased the white Micro with the intention of both increasing fun with my 8 yr old daughter and also not feeling left behind on our walks, which often has her yards in front of me while I hollered, "Hey honey, wait up!" Now we are both crusing around our neighborhood and chatting with each other along the way!
The Micro is really smooth with its larger and smooth wheels and I notice that I don't have to put in as much of a push or effort to keep moving compaired to my daughter on her Maxi, this thing really cruises! The breaking system is easy to use and works to slow down or for full stops. The scooter is low enough to the ground that it's very easy to push off with your foot or get on and off of for those little moments that you have to hop off due to a big break in a curb or having to go around a obstacle that's safer to walk around. The handlebars can be adjusted to fit my 8 yr old at 51" and my husband at 74". I appreciate the kickstand for stops at the park, storing in the garage, etc. I haven't had to fold this scooter down for trips yet but certainly plan to in the future and look forward to more family adventures :). I'm pumped to get a scooter for my husband as well as this totally hits the mark on family fun and increasing together time!
The additional bonus for me is the increased in balance of both my legs by alternating them throughout my ride (my left leg needed a tune-up due to MS). I'm sure its helping to increasing my core strength as well as I've noticed my rides are getting much easier. This really is a fun scooter so I find myself wanting to go out almost nightly and on the weekends for a ride with my daughter. Lastly, I'm 48 yrs old and this has made me feel like my youth is returning in a way that hiking, biking, and yoga just doesn't do for me, a real life fountain of youth!
