I don't think so, especially not for $600.
Maybe if I was in the market for a folding bike I would consider it, it looks kind of fun, but probably tiring, too.
Yesterday I had to do a pretty hard stop to avoid a car turning into my path, and I thought, "Geez, I wish this crummy old safety bicycle would allow me to savagely head-butt that SUV... or anybody else who makes me come to a sudden stop!" I've already submitted my pre-order.
Agreed. Not sure if it's the sweet spot or the dead zone. it is intriguing. It is more than a scooter and less than a bike. It would be fun to take few miles to the train in the morning. However, MK's comment goes a long way as does yours that it is a bit much to lug around. I have been assured by my adult daughters that an adult scooter is dorkworthy. I guess that is why you compare to a longboard which carries no such baggage. Still, a scooter at about $250 would be kind of fun for a mile or two and relatively easy to lug around. At $600 You can start thinking of a low end folding bike. At $300 I think this contraption might be in the sweet spot but at $600 it looks like an indulgence compared to better options with either less cost or more utility.
What are you talking about? I don't see a picture or a description of this wheeled object.
