You got a job stop bitching. My local shop sells a shitload of scooters and it makes money and is therefore good for the shop, i see absolute no problem with bike guys capitalizing of the scooter industry . Its an easy thing for the shop to get into scooters are simple and easy to work on and easy to sell, easy money all together.

gotta agree with austin, if the revenue from scooters keeps the shop open or doing better im all for it. Plus, selling scooters is alot closer to bmx than road bikes and fixies. Even in so cal, where theres bike shops every 3 blocks, i still gotta order from dans, unless there bmx only they dont have to much legit stuff.

Scooters make money.

Elven bike stores go by this motto.
1. buy scooters
2. display scooters
3. ??????
4. PROFIT

Bike shops want to target rich kids and parents. Not bmxers who have no money. Its probably a lot easier to sell a 100 to 200 scooter to a parents than a 5 to 600 bike and make the same amount of profit.

The shop i work at is a family run/rider owned store and my boss has another job that brings in more money. We have pretty much the same people come in to get new stuff and shit like that, It's normanly only kids aged 9/13 that bye scooters from us anyway as it's is still pretty much an all BMX shop.

Take the scooters out of the shop, you're happy, your shop loses money, you lose your job, you're not happy.

Leave the scooters in the shop, you're not happy, the shop gains money, you keep your job, you like money therefor are happy.




The choice is yours.

Not that i'm unhappy just think there a waste of time :L was gonna bring it up with the boss tomorow but i'm not going to now, He's planning on trying to stock MGP and the bigger scooter brands which i have no probelm with. I think of Scootering as a child sport and i find it weird seeing a 16 year old riding past on a scooter.

people hate on scooters and i really dont understand why. yeah, when you go to popular parks there are a lot of little kids who dont actually ride on scooters who get in the way, but thats a generalization that shouldnt be made for the population. when you think that, youre thinking the same thing many people think about BMXers. its stereotypes like that that arent needed in any extreme sport.

frankly, i like scooters. i like to mess around on them and i think theyre fun. i think its great that scooters are becoming more available and i think its great that local bike shops are selling them. they make money that way and they stay in buisness, that way all of us riders have a shop we can go to, rather than needing to go online and order parts because our local shops went out of business from not making any profit.

Sometimes scooters are cool.. I know a couple scooter guys who are badass.. but, besides that, "everyone should ride everything" is what I always say.. then you find what you like and stick to it.. if it's got wheels, ride the heck out of it.. if it's got tits and a pretty smile, same idea applies..

The general public thinks BMX is childish and they think we ride bikes from Wal-mart. Well, where I live they think that.

Where i live, if you have a shit bike then apparently you can't do anything and that means you're shit at everything. I'm only 13 but when i'm older and have kids or whatever i want them to ride for fun not because everybody else does it.

It seems like they came out of nowhere because there is no barrier to entry. They are cheap and super easy to ride. They require far less skill and dedication, so anyone can do it, and feel cool. That's a recipie for a fad... They will probably disappear.... Isn't that what happened to roller blades? In the meantime, people are gonna make money on the little kid trend.

12/1/2011 4:37 PM

its like the stock market, you buy and sell while you know its going up or getting more popular, the more you stay with the trends, the more you make. its all about money in the end. whether you sell only bikes or only skate boards, you sell them to make money but have the luxury of being interested in them tooooo.

I think scooters are cool and are better than other heavy vehicles cause these are lightweight and can be drived by anyone.
