This thing is great! I looked at other standing options, but this one is so small and portable (fits easily in the trunk) and more fun! There may be a little learning curve for some, but I had experience with a similar rear-steering scoot (I bought for my kids) and I got it immediately (and so did my kids). It is best on mostly flat areas, but I ride it daily around our lake, usually twice around the 5-mile loop. It is a great workout and I always look forward to it, whereas on a regular bike I tend to get bored rather easily :). Highly recommended!!
