Jimmy from Cambridge, mA submitted this review on March 4th 2011 at 01:41 PM. Jimmy is an end user who has less than a month of experience with the product.
Strengths:Solid piece of machinery. Good looking! Speed is fast enough for outdoor and indoor use!Set is comy and the 369ļ swivel is a great asset for sitting at a table or a desk. Variable sprrf control knob on steering column is good for keeping your speed under control.Pnumatic tires give it a smooth ride. Maneivering through tight spaces can be tricky but do-able with practice and time.lights are okay but not sure how affective outdoors yet! My workmates have all tried it out and they all loved it! You need to have the basket. Cup holder is cute! Break release comes in very useful when powering it up the ramp is not an option!
Weaknesses:Since all of the weight is in the back of the scooter, you must be careful of going up inclines to fast! It has a tendency to want to tip over backwards. When approaching a handicap entrance way on a sidewalk be careful not to power up it to fast! My Bolero was shipped with the high beam light not functioning. Mirrors tend to come loose after a while of opening and closing the vehicle during storage. Keep a wrench in the basket handy! I suggest when using a ramp for your vehicles rear storage you may need to give the scooter some extra power to get the stabilizer wheels onto the ramp. The tires will be in the air and spinning not making any traction. Bolero "BEEPS" alot when when turning on the left or right blinker, lighting the lights, turning on the emergency lights, and backing up! As long as you are carefull it should be okay! The horn sounds like the lights do. You eould be better off getting one of those bicycle squeeze honking horns to get attention! Seat does not fully recline to my satisfaction.The cup holder, although cute, is not big enough for a good size drink when out and about town. Power meter can be hard to read. Need to see the red line in the meter. Walker holder did not come with it as ordered! Don't spend your money!!!! A good 18" - 30" bunji cord wrapped around the base of the headrest works great! I'm using one right now!
Comments:Could use a bigger cu holder, bigger basket and a higher head rest. Other than that it works fine for me! We shall see how it works over time
