I had bunion surgery on my right foot and without this Spry Knee Cruzer Elite I would be in a pickle...in addition not be able to get around anywhere. I began using my Spry immediately after surgery. It is durable and convenient. I chose this model for several reasons:
#1 Rear wheel rotation function allows pivot on own access (narrow turning radius)-A must have!!
#2 Light Touch Disc Brakes with parking lock feature for hand free use, can be operated by either hand
#3 Easy Fold Handlebar folding stem requires no adjustment and only a single hand to operate--fits in most sedans.
#4 Non-Marking Solid Tires - long life, solid, polyurethane tires
Some things I would change: The front wheels are wide (22") and tend to hit/rub against my walls, doors, and any other thing that comes in it way if I am not paying close attention when wheeling around tight spaces. Rubber coverings over the bolts on the front tires would be a good suggestion to the company. The Molded Foam Knee Rest provides minimal comfort...for short trips it doesn't seem to bother me but if I am out and about for a longer trip say the grocery or mall it is very uncomfortable. Needless to say, I have developed callous on my knee. I purchased knee pads for additional cushion which seems to work okay. These things are all tolerable if I can get around...and I do. I would not be able to recover without this Spry Elite Cruzer. I highly suggest purchasing a basket from Spry. I is definitely a MUST HAVE if you plan on holding/carrying ANYTHING. It is also useful for holding items while shopping, at work, or organizing/cleaning the house (such as holding laundry washing, carrying my cell phone, remote controls, etc to various locations. The SPRY Cruzer gets everyone's attention. People love to admire and ask about it and my surgery.
Overall I highly suggest this Spry Cruzer!
