Thanks for the thorough review. I was actually debating between the know-ped and one of the xootr’s. I didn’t even consider the Kick-Ped until I read your helpful review. While I did originally like the cool colors of the know-ped, I decided to just go with the kick-ped for its simplistic design and plain colors so as not to bring too much attention to myself. I’m only going to be riding this recreationally for now. I ordered it today. Can’t wait to get it. I’m sure I’ll be very happy with it.
