This scooter is AWESOME! It cut my "commute" to work in half! Walmart definitely had the best price... I bought it Friday and received it Wednesday. I'm 5'7" and about 150 lbs and I currently live 7 downtown-city blocks from work. I bought a scooter because I am moving to a place about a mile - 12 blocks - from work. I shopped around for kick/push scooters as opposed to a bicycle because I wanted to be able to ride on the sidewalk and not have to deal with cars while riding in the street. I chose the Razor Cruiser Scooter because of the larger wheels, 35" handlebars, wide wooden deck, and 175lb weight limit (my backpack is very heavy!). When I received the package, the box indicated that the weight limit was 143lbs, but I trust the official Razor website, which says the Razor Cruiser Scooter can hold 175lbs. I was concerned because some of the reviews said that the handlebars were too short for a child, let alone a full-sized adult. For someone who is 5'7" and terrified of heights and falling, the handlebars seemed low at first, but it did not take long at all to get used to it. Definitely not "too" low - while cruising on the scooter upright with both feet, there is still a *slight* bend in my elbows (elbows are not locked), which works for me. The wooden deck is wide and grippy and the back foot break is not nearly as scary as I thought it would be... I only had to practice for a few minutes before getting the hang of it and I'll admit that I'm below average on the coordination scale! Turing is somewhat of a challenge, but I imagine it gets better with practice. I recommend this scooter to beginners! Added bonus: It fits (when folded) into locking drawer at work!
