    What buyers are saying
    Out of the box this scooter is rough at best, not really usable at worst. Either take it to a bike shop and have them assemble and optimize it, or be ready to do a bit of bicycle mechanizing yourself. I completely disassembled the Expo, cleaned the metal shavings out of the bearings and cups, lubed and adjusted same, then took to the brake system. I am no stunt rider, so I had no need for the 360 rotation feature of the bars. I purchased a basic brake replacement cable and housing set from a department store, ran a single solid cable for the rear brake, affixing it with plastic zip ties. I rerouted the front cable, reversing the two attaching bits which anchor the cable at the caliper end. Now the front brake is configured like a basic bike brake, and the rear is 50% more effective. I also roughed the brake pads front and rear, and cleaned rim braking surfaces and pads with isopropyl alcohol and made sure not to get grease or oil on either surface. Now it's a super fun, dependable, simple scooter. Also removed all stickers. At less than $100 invested, including tools, I certainly can't complain, but I take away a star because of the effort/skill/cost required to make it right.
