Definitely. Tons of stuff transfers over.

I rode a scooter yesterday and was able to do grinds, stalls, 180's half cabs, nose pivots, tire jams, x-ups, etc.

Frustratingly, it helps loads. There was some pro scooter kid at my local not long ago. Jumped on a bike, instantly learned tuck no handers, learned bars after a few attempts, nearly got whips, and got 360’s. Obviously it’ll depend how good you are on a scooter. And some people are just natural with doing stuff. But I thought about quitting that day. Little bastard.

I had a similar thing happen. Scooter kid tried my son's 16 one day and was airing the hips at the park like he'd done it a million times. First time on a bmx.

Testimony and apologies





I want everyone to know that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of your sins, he went to hell for three days and defeated death and rose from the grave on the 3rd day.

What would Jesus say: I didn't die for you to live like this!

They give you the idea/logistics of a lot of tricks with something that is about 1/3 the weight of a BMX.

Trampoline bikes can help in some ways too.

Got a mate who is damn good on a scooter, and first time ever on my bike he could 180, air out, disaster and manual. Definitely helps.

Yup, bars can go from 30” tall as low as 15” tall. Many different sized decks will accommodate anyone that exists.

I’m still a scooter rider who happens to have a BMX. It helps immensely. I made it a habit the last few months to practice manuals on the scoot, and soon enough my manuals on BMX became consistent.

Overall control on the bike helps with the scooter, even though my scoot is 6.5 LBS and my bike 24. Ramp skill and technique transition over well for me, as does many others.

Scooters are good for kids until they grow enough to ride a bike.

To call scootering merely a gateway towards BMX is flawed logic IMO. We’re all in it for the same things no matter what you ride.

You didn't just get on a scooter and do all that.

Agreed. Plenty of riders find joy on other vehicles besides a bmx. Thats like saying bmx is only good while you're a kid until youre old enough to ride a dirtbike.
