My other stunt rig.

Not a BMX, but since I know some of you do/have scooter, I thought I would share mine because I'm bored.

Looks like a standard scooter eh? Nothing to special.


Double clamped, makes T-bar a lot stiffer and less prone to twisting/stripping the fork. Also has a Alchemy Headset off of an old DH rig.


Cromo fork, straight from Razor Scooters. You cant buy these and they never came on any scooters, I had to pull some strings to get one. It's shorter then the others making it a lot quicker in the park. Also has a lighter, smoother faster rolling front wheel, I'm running Abec Nines in both wheels.


I got sick of hitting my knee on the damn quick release (I was also sick of almost needing stitches every time to) so I got rid of it.


Rear wheel has alot more padding, makes drops and rear wheel hops easier. I'm going to need a new one soon, this one is starting to crack.


And some spares.


So there you have it, my scooter.

Pretty cool. I'm pissed my dad gave away my scooter... I was pretty good on it. I'm almost tempted to buy a new one. And those wheels must roll damn fast. I think I used to have Abec 6's on my skates and they were pretty quick.

Yeah you can. I just saw this guy at the skatepark the other day that had an FSA Pig on his. He's known as 'the scooter kid' and he is riduclously (sp?) good. Quad tailwhips. 3 double whips. Scooterflips. You name it he's got it dialed. I think he's a pro because i saw him in some Incline Club contest vid and he got like 3rd.

Sickness. Scootering would be even better if the wheels were a little bigger (IMO).

how I miss scootering...I used to do it tonnes, street riding and stuff but mosty just down my driveway, I used to be able to hop awsume, sweet rotations and whips n stuff, good times. But I kinda got over em and I wanted to get into em again but my dad put my scooter in hard rubbish and it's long gone... depressing, I wanna buy another one though, I rode my mates one down at the pier the other day, couldn't ride it for ****, tried to go off the edge but it had like no foot grip and I had bare, wet feet so I kinda slipped and the front wheel went off the edge and the bottom stalled and I flew over and landed on the scooter in that water and cracked me knackers. It was depressing watching my mate do sweet tricks into the water, anyway my mates a pretty good and he can do grinds and stuff....I'll shutup now (I've never said depressed/depressing so much in a month before as much as I just did)
