Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Very FunReviewed by Bellefemme from Seattle, WA on Thursday, September 28, 2017Great little electric scooter, quiet, a lot of fun to ride. It is anemic on hills and I will have to use my legs to push it up a moderate incline, but it sure beats driving the car everywhere. And I don't get sweaty like with my regular bike so I am presentable when I commute to work.

“Where do you put your feet?”
The kick stand flips up over the rear tire, then you pull out the silver ends of the kickstand to use as the footbars.
There is an unboxing video on YouTube that you could check out if you want to. You can see the footbars in use at about 6:50 in the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4wvyhMEv8s
“How can I lock this? The kickstand doesn't look like a good option and the front wheel looks pretty narrow.”
We do not sell a lock for this item. Unfortunately we do not have any specific suggestions either. We suggest contacting the manufacturer for more information.
If I intend to leave my scooter unattended for a lengthy time, I use a bicycle u-lock routed through the front wheel. it's not a quick process, since the brake rotor is in the way -- but IT IS possible to secure it this way, if done carefully. Get a u-lock with a long shackle.
Moreover, the keyed 'ignition' is a theft deterrent in itself, I sometimes I solely rely on that in areas where carrying the scooter would be a big inconvenience to a potential thief.
