Yes, it is absolutely a good adquisition. Since I made the adjustements I haven´t had further problems.
It is curious how this thing becomes the talking point with people at the streets. Many of them are just surprised of a big guy on a scooter (I thought here in NY people wouldn´t be surprised by almost anything), others usually ride (or want to ride) a scooter. The common question is: "Where did you find the scooter with whe big wheels?"
I think this model is quite new, and isn´t as spread and well known as the Xootr yet.

See the other post on the A5 Lux where we're talking about it, but basically there is a adjustment screw that can only be adjusted with a hex/Allen wrench that takes some of the play out of the joint. You'll know what I mean if you ride over some brick paths or subway grates, and the adjustment isn't quite right.

The funny thing is that, at least in the Amazon and Toys R Us product photos, they seem to have a better end-cap to the handlebar that makes it less uncomfortable if you have big hands that go past the end. On the model I got (from Amazon), there were these two huge red end-caps that I had to pry off, and also undo a stretchy cord between the two.
