It seems to be pretty well-built, and it'll hit 12 mph...

I'm a Cricket owner and after looking at the Roo pictures, it seems like the Roo is a little more substantially built; hardtop roof, roof supporting beams are bent, the rear seat is higher and maybe a little wider. On the Cricket side, it seems like the Cricket is more modular in that practically everything on the Cricket is designed to come apart with hand power only. I believe there are only 4 bolts that can't be done. The Cricket speed is designed to be about 13 mph so that's about the same. The Cricket range is about 20 miles with new fully charged batteries, 1 small person and ideal (no hills, flat paved asphalt) and minimal speed. Personally, I would never take it again over 5 miles away and then only on a full charge. The second half of the battery charge indicator goes much faster the first half. The charge time is also pretty slow on the Cricket. If going around an RV park, a full charge will last all day with no problems whatsoever. However, we use it at the Florida state parks because the Cricket meets all the handicap requirement of a "mobility device". The concept is where ever a pedestrian can go, the Cricket can go. I'm not sure if the Roo meets the requirements, but if you search mobility devices or something similar, you can fairly easily find something regarding exact specifications. As far as durability of the Cricket, I have ridden mine hard (down some of the trails perhaps I shouldn't have) and put it away wet and it is holding up fairly well. Overall, I give very high marks to my Cricket and it is only 300 pounds and does compress easily about a foot in the middle to shorten the length when needed. Price with nice platform, all extras, taxes, etc. was about $5,000 total brand new.

WARNING, WARNING, WARNING!!! -- If you are going to put either the Roo or the Cricket, have your receiver beefed up at your local reputable receiver person.
