Build A Stunt Scooter

Building a stunt scooter from scratch can be a rewarding experience, allowing you to customize every aspect of your ride to suit your preferences and style. In this blog, we provide you with an easy to follow step by step guide on how to build your stunt scooter. Here at Wake2o, we have a variety of top stunt scooter components to pick from to make sure you have the best stunt scooter you can.

What Do You Need To Build A Scooter?

- Deck: The scooter deck tends to include brake and bolts unless stated otherwise

- Wheels: You will need a pair of wheels, but please not that some wheels are sold individually.

- Fork: The fork holds the front wheel and connects it to the deck. Ensure it's compatible with your wheel size and deck.

- Handlebars: Choose sturdy handlebars made from chromoly steel or aluminum.

- Headset: The headset sits between the fork and the deck, allowing the fork to turn smoothly.

- Bearings: Bearings allow the wheels to spin smoothly. Look for high-quality bearings to ensure optimal performance.

- Hand Grips: Grips go on the handlebars to provide a comfortable and grippy surface for your hands.

- Grip tape: Grip tape goes on the top of the deck to provide traction for your feet.

- Compression System: This system keeps the headset and fork tight together. Common types include HIC (Hidden Internal Compression), IHC (Integrated Headset Compression), and SCS (Standard Compression System).

How To Build A Stunt Scooter

1. Choose your components: The first thing you need to do is select all the components you need to build your scooter. Ensuring that you have the correct sizes to suit you and also some sick graphics.

2. Gripping your scooter deck: The first thing to do would be to grip your scooter deck. Peel off the backing and carefully apply the grip tape, smoothing out any air bubbles or wrinkles. Trim off the excess grip tape around the edges using a razor blade or sharp knife.

3. Insert headset and fork: Insert the headset bearings into the top and bottom of the headtube on the deck. Slide the fork into the headtube, ensuring it fits snugly and aligns properly with the deck. Tighten the compression system to secure the fork in place.

4. Attach Handlebars and Clamp: Place the clamp over the top of the fork and slide the scooter handlebars in and align them with the desired angle. Then tighten the bolts to secure them in place. Make sure the handlebars are centered and securely attached to the fork.

5. Install Wheels and Bearings: Insert the bearings and spacers into the scooter wheels, making sure they are seated properly. Slide the wheels onto the axles of the scooter fork and tighten the axle bolts to secure them in place. Spin the wheels to ensure they rotate smoothly without any wobbling.
