Like the Big Wheel's hand break to lock one wheel to make spin outs easier, that hand brake is going to cause premature tire wear. Given the wheels are made out if licorice, look forward to another $400 scooter every 3 months.

/still have the scars on my knees and ankles from the great Big Wheel crash of 1973

That's pretty cool, if you're a kid or a smaller person.

Fark that. I'm not spending $400 for all the headaches that thing would cause.

Also max weight is 140, so I'm guessing most Farkers are out

FilmBELOH20: That does look fun, but I don't ever want to see one in my neighborhood.  I'm all for my kids riding motocross, using lawn darts, skateboards, jumping off the roof with an umbrella to see if it works like a parachute, and every other dangerous thing I did as a kid.  But I hate all of these products made by Razor that allow kids to go superfast while being 1 foot off the ground.  And it's not because of the potential of broken bones or scrapes or bruises - all of that builds character.  My problem with these things is that I can't count the number of times I've almost run over a kid on one of those little motorcycles because they go racing between cars and don't pay any attention to their surroundings.  Anybody really believe that the only place this thing would get used is on a closed course?  At least when my kids are on their dirt bikes they are visible, wear appropriate safety gear, and don't have a chance in hell of a car hitting them.

Why do you hate Darwin?

PsyLord: So it's basically this for lazy kids:

Go get some exercise!  You want to go faster?  Pedal harder!

How to properly ride a Big Wheel:

1. Borrow one from your neighbor's yard
2. Remove the seat back. Discard.
3. Climb the tallest, steepest hill available. Jumps optional but preferred.
4. Stand, (do not sit) on the seat.
5. Do NOT brake under any circumstances.
6. Repeat until Big Wheel is inop, or until called in for dinner.
7. Place remains of Big Wheel back in your neighbor's yard.
