Take care of your ride, and it can last for years. We asked Chris Taylor, longtime bike mechanic and partner of Toronto's Cycle Solutions, how he keeps his three boys“ scooters in tip-top condition.
Keep the chassis corrosion-free and looking great with Mothers Mag & Aluminum wheel polish.
Cleaning the wheel bearings and lubricating monthly and replacing the bearings with a high quality Abec 5 skateboard bearing on an annual basis will keep it rolling butter smooth.
Check the bolts for loosening on a regular basis, and always wear your helmet.
