First of all, there was no assembly. My husband was so excited! It just pops up and is so easy. It's super lightweight, wich is great for my 8 year old. She had a fliker jr previously that she had grown out of- and let me say she is so impressed with the brakes on this new one! She also seems to have more control. Being a small adult I have even hopped on it and it is very smooth and easy to maneuver. We love this thing.
