|Knowing my father it was probably a cheap knockoff of the GreenMachine. IF he only knew how much my bike(s) costs.|

|I actually had both of those rides. I found the Big Wheel to be a lot stiffer and more responsive, ideal for criteriums. But then after a really bad crash I became too hesitant to ride in those kind of conditions, so I took up triathalons and found the Green Machine to be more compliant for the long haul (100 mile +) and a lot more aerodynamic. So I guess it really depends on what kind of sidewalk riding you are doing. Now a days I see those scooters everywhere, talk about your stability nightmares, those things look like they handle like a squirell on meth-amphetamines. No good for any kind of sidewalk riding.|

|You got to be kidding me? My friends and I who had green machines completely dominated the kids with big wheels. Ever try diving into a turn with a Big Wheel? You'd get high-sided before you knew what was going on!
Now, with the green machine, you just slam those levers and slide around the turn - dirt track style.
We terrorized the other kids!
Dammit, if they'd make an adult sized green machine, I'd buy one right now! That was the best toy I had.

|Look for a sport comfort bike, they have wider, thicker tires for stability and puncture resistance. And are good for the bumbs of the curbs. TTFN|| |
