Slow and noisy but can be fixed
on 2 February 2015
These are ok, but only if you get it cheap.
- Out of the box they are much slower that the original Micro-Scooter version
- They are noisy because they have very hard wheels
The speed can be fixed fairly cheaply - the problem lies with the bearing spacers (little tube that sits between the bearings in the middle of each wheel) that need to be well made with parallel faces - the one on this scooter are not - replacing these will allow the wheel to spin more freely, as both bearings will operate in the same plane and not need to move I an out of the wheel each time the wheel goes round. It will also ensure the bearings last longer as they won't have skewed loads on them. The end result is a much much faster scooter for less effort. It is a shame the manufacturers have got so cheap in this area - the difference between good and bad spacers is a few pence and the impact the have is huge.
Overall if you are happy to do a bit of work and changing the spacers is easy - plenty of videos on the web - can get it for £15 and don't mind the noisy ride it is ok.
