I don’t consider myself an expert at this thing yet; I can only just now say that I can ride it.

This thing is great.
I have been riding snake board more than 15 years ago. This thing is very similar, it took me less than 10 minutes to figure out how to propel it, another ten minutes to properly steer it.
So I thought about why so many people complain about not being able to ride it. I guess it is about mechanics. Several reviewers have stated to be able to ride a ripstick but not the skate cycle. I tried a ripstick, compared to a snake board (and skate cycle) it is, let's say, "meta-stable", you have to make many small movements to control it. As the wheels are so tiny, these small movements are enough to propel a ripstick. Such little moves do not work with a snake board and also not with a skate cycle. These wheels are huge. You need large movements and good back muscles, it is about force and training. The information they provide in there web site is in fact pretty good. To make it clear: this is not a ripstick, you cannot ride it like a ripstick. Whoever loved the snake board will love the skate cycle.
Yet I think there some things that could be improved. 1) The thing is pretty heavy, carbon instead of metal would make it lighter for sure. 2) There is no shock absorbing, it should be possible to add some absorber between the platform and the wheel. 3) I would love to have straps to fix the feet like it was on the old snake board. You can get more power into the device by doing so. 4) Make the wheels bigger and the bar longer. I have no idea how large you can build the wheels before it becomes impossible to propel it, but I think a bit bigger is still possible. Together with longer bar it would be possible to ride at higher speeds.
Finally, again the statement this thing is simply cool. I have been waiting for a revival of the snake board with modern technologies. This is definitively snake board 2.0.

Being that this is Brooklyn-workshop's first product, they are giving them self a awesome image of build quality and customer service.
They give you all the tools and instructions you need to take apart, clean, and repair your skate cycle. If a part breaks or need replacing all you have to do is call there number on the instruction book.

The body is solid giving confidence that it would never break while in use. The only plastic is the outer casing; to basically make it look cool. :)
It does take some time to get used too, the video they uploaded on YouTube did help a lot! I do advise to wear protective gear for your first few times you practice. And NEVER go down a hill with it if you don't know how to stop, like i did.

Its cool if you have 150 to spend on a toy for adults and teens. :)

Let's just get something out of the way - the Skatecycle is not the easiest thing to learn how to ride. But did you learn how to ride a bicycle the first few days or even week? It's the same concept, you have to stick with it, be disciplined, and be passionate about eventually getting it. For me personally, it took me roughly 1 month from the first day that I unboxed my black Skatecycle to the day that I could officially say "I'm good at it."

I had no prior experience with skateboarding, snowboarding, rollerblading, or any of those similar activities. I was very persistent and started off the first few days by rolling around in my kitchen (only part in my apartment with a hard, flat surface) just getting my balance and learning how to stay on the Skatecycle. I had watched some instructional videos on YouTube that helped with this initial process. After of which, I took the plunge and went outside - but not before buying a helmet (I fell several times and the helmet proved to be useful). At least 1 hour a day for the next 2 weeks I was rolling along, using walls and street lights or whatever it was I could get my hands on to help me balance. Every few days I would continue to improve on my stamina, or find something new that made me say "aha!" when I figure something out that made riding easier. Finally after a few weeks, I was rolling around with ease and able to sustain a ride for as long as my legs didn't get tired (which isn't more than 2-3 minutes before I have to stop).

One other piece of advice that no one has ever told me, is that you should start out by picking a dominant foot. I "learned" how to ride the Skatecycle with my right foot in front, left foot in the back.

I received my Skatecycle 2 weeks ago and so far I really love this product. Let me make things very clear, this thing is going to challenge you but is very rewarding once you learn how to do it. I hopped into this thing with little to no skateboarding experience, all I knew how to ride before I got this was a bicycle, ripstik and inline skates (or blades). To give you a better idea on how hard this thing is to learn, I have only just managed to propel myself and do all the basic maneuvers like turning and stopping. I don’t consider myself an expert at this thing yet; I can only just now say that I can ride it.

So what did it take to get this far? It took hours of practice and a lot of falling off. In reality, I spent about an hour each day practicing this thing and was able to ride it fairly well by day 3 or 4. After that, I worked on my turning which felt awkward at first, but by day 7 it felt natural. The real challenge was learning how to combine all those motions into a propelling motion to go long distances. Now that I have that down, I consider myself capable of riding it, now it’s all about practice and “getting really good at it”.

So I guess like many other reviews have said, yes this thing is very hard to learn. It can’t be said enough honestly, but as long as you’re willing to persevere and work with it every day, it shouldn’t take longer than a few days to get the hang of it. I don’t consider myself well-built or one with strong balance skills, yet I persevered and managed to learn to ride it. It’s hard, but it’s not impossible.

As far as riding goes, the Skatecycle’s large wheels make for a very stable and smooth ride. Balancing even at low speed isn’t difficult, and the Skatecycle takes bumps with ease.
