I asked a question yesterday about brake blocks for plastic wheels.

Plastic rims and brake pads

At the time it seemed on-topic because its totally bike components. However not all scooters are built with bikes.

Your thoughts?

  • I feel that even if a scooter is not bike components, its still on-topic because scooters and balance bikes are a gateway to proper cycling.

    We're talking about manual kick-scooters, right? Because many people refer to 50 cc. gas powered Vespa types as "scooters".

  • @RoboKaren yes - single leg-push scooters. The ones you're thinking of are essentially motorcycles with an automatic gearbox and belong in mechanics.stackexchange.com

We're not overwhelmed with questions about scooters, so I'd be inclined to accept them. I would be less keen on questions about scooting, though I can't imagine there will be many of them ("left or right leg on the platform?", "how can I train for a 100km scoot?").

    4 km is far enough, and that's with an outboard motor rated at 1 dogpower!
