Micro Makeover - Since every part is replaceable on a Micro, we wanted to show you an example of how changing out a few parts can make your ride practically new again.
THE MAKEOVER. We sometimes describe the Maxi as 'indestructible' but similar to a car, parts do eventually get worn out and need replacing. Also, kids of Maxi-riding age (5 to12) typically have a lot of energy and can really put their scooters through a lot, so after riding about 500 miles, it isn't surprising that Drew's wheels were a bit worn. Replacing the wheels wll mean that Drew will once again experience the smooth Micro glide, one of the biggest benefits of a Micro Makeover. Replacing the deck is more of a cosmetic decision. The deck gets chewed up when kids run it into a step or curb, it's a playful gesture they all seem to do. The brake had come loose and we had the option of simply bolting it back on but we decided to totally replace it. Handgrips are important because they are designed to absorb the bumps and help smooth out the ride, making it comfortable to ride distances, so we replaced them as well.
