I got this scooter yesterday and it is epic. The two piece bars are awesome and are the perfect height for me and I am 5' 3". The wheels and bearings are super fast. The grips are great until your hands get sweaty, then they are ok. The brake is awesome and works really good. I love the 4.5 in. wide deck, it makes it easier to land tricks. The headset is not the best but is better than on a razor A (what I used to ride), I am learning to tail whip and it's a bit tricky. The scooter is about 8 pounds so it's really light weight. The clamp is a good, strong, three bolt clamp. Overall, this is a really good scooter
Edit: I have owned this for 2 years now, I'm a lot better rider, but I mainly ride my Phase Two Dirt Scooter now (Check out my review for that too!) but still use this to go to friends house's sometimes or ride it my driveway. I am 5'8" now, the bars are still fine, but I don't love the two piece look anymore. The scooter is still an amazing beginner stunt scooter, but my one issue with it is that the bars come offset from the wheel a lot, I end up fixing it once a week!
I would probably recommend the Hero scooter over this (Red Shaun White scooter with Y bar) as it is just like this one, but with a lot nicer headset that will not let your bars get offset easily. It is also all of $8 more than this one right now.
