I bought the apex last November and absolutely love it. I haven't had any problems with it so far. my friend had the commuter and it also works great. I love how bright the front and rear lights are. every time I squeeze the brake lever, the rear lights start flashing to indicate that I am slowing down. the folding mechanism is really smooth and the whole thing feels sturdy because the battery is in the bottom. be sure to wear gloves when riding so your hands don't freeze. it is defiantly a good price because other scooters that are similar to the apex are around 50-100 dollars more.
