My daughter is 11 years old and loves zipping around on her Slingshot Zike. It is fun, fast and just the right size for her. The handlebars are adjustable and it folds up and is very portable to be able to take anywhere. We ride together on our Zikes and share quality family time plus get exercise and get away from all the electronic devices that keep us sedentary.

I rode it about four times. Then going around a lake the front wheel started shaking, a little later the back wheel and I couldn't even ride it anymore. The back tire went flat. When I took it to a bike repair shop most of the spokes on the back wheel were broken. Communication with the Zike company has been very difficult...they sent a phone message that their email to me was returned. Amazon was nice to arrange a UPS pickup for a refund but so far they couldn't request a box to ship it in. The Zike is still at the bike shop; they sent an email to Zike for a replacement wheel and didn't get a reply. I've now sent another email to Amazon to send UPS to the bike shop with a box for shipping; I left the invoice copy and shipping labels with them. I really liked exercising on it in the mornings, because so often my legs hurt when I run. It was a great cross-training scooter, my knees and legs started feeling better after a few times. I want another one but dread future service problems. Penny Sue Scheff

I purchased a Saber for my 10 year old for Christmas and she LOVES it! I can't keep her off of it. It took a little while for her to get used to the pedaling motion, but once she picked it up she could not be stopped. The bike is a little big for her age but at least she can grow into it and I can ride it too. A lot of fun.
