    Being that this is Brooklyn-workshop’s first product, they are giving them self a awesome image of build quality and customer service.
    They give you all the tools and instructions you need to take apart, clean, and repair your skate cycle. If a part breaks or need replacing all you have to do is call there number on the instruction book.

    The body is solid giving confidence that it would never break while in use. The only plastic is the outer casing; to basically make it look cool. :)
    It does take some time to get used too, the video they uploaded on YouTube did help a lot! I do advise to wear protective gear for your first few times you practice. And NEVER go down a hill with it if you don’t know how to stop, like i did.

    Its cool if you have 150 to spend on a toy for adults and teens. :)

    Definite learning curve. Unless you have ridden something similar, I’d expect to spend a couple hours minimum learning before you can move more than a couple feet. Very cool looking. Everyone will ask you what it is.

    This thing is great.
    I have been riding snake board more than 15 years ago. This thing is very similar, it took me less than 10 minutes to figure out how to propel it, another ten minutes to properly steer it.
    So I thought about why so many people complain about not being able to ride it. I guess it is about mechanics. Several reviewers have stated to be able to ride a ripstick but not the skate cycle. I tried a ripstick, compared to a snake board (and skate cycle) it is, let’s say, “meta-stable”, you have to make many small movements to control it. As the wheels are so tiny, these small movements are enough to propel a ripstick. Such little moves do not work with a snake board and also not with a skate cycle. These wheels are huge. You need large movements and good back muscles, it is about force and training. The information they provide in there web site is in fact pretty good. To make it clear: this is not a ripstick, you cannot ride it like a ripstick. Whoever loved the snake board will love the skate cycle.
    Yet I think there some things that could be improved. 1) The thing is pretty heavy, carbon instead of metal would make it lighter for sure. 2) There is no shock absorbing, it should be possible to add some absorber between the platform and the wheel. 3) I would love to have straps to fix the feet like it was on the old snake board. You can get more power into the device by doing so. 4) Make the wheels bigger and the bar longer. I have no idea how large you can build the wheels before it becomes impossible to propel it, but I think a bit bigger is still possible. Together with longer bar it would be possible to ride at higher speeds.
    Finally, again the statement this thing is simply cool. I have been waiting for a revival of the snake board with modern technologies. This is definitively snake board 2.0.
