Congratulations on your new scooter purchase! If we know anything from our 20 years in the biz, it’s that you’ve got lots of fun times ahead. You may be thinking, “I have this scooter. What do I do now?” There are a few tips and tricks we’ve learned over the years to help you make the most out of your new Micro, and we’re excited to share them with you. So, let’s get started!
Get a Helmet
If you haven’t already purchased a helmet, now’s the time! (Seriously, the sooner the better.) Accidents happen and the last thing you’ll want for yourself or a loved one is a traumatic brain injury. You can find more information on helmet safety in this blog post but to sum it up, helmets are essential when riding a scooter. We offer a variety of styles and sizes on our Helmets page.
Learn How It Works
Does your scooter have any special features? A kickstand? Light up wheels? Adjustable T-Bar? Folding mechanism? Do you know how the steering works? Take a look at the user manual that came with your scooter, and be sure that everything makes sense to you. Have any questions? Check out our educational Youtube video library, or contact our Customer Service.
We offer scooters in a variety of different colors, but for added safety and flair, you can add on some of our much loved accessories! Like helmets, we consider scooter lights and bells to be essential. It’s important to be seen and heard! Depending on where you’ll put your scooter when it’s not in use, you may want to consider a scooter lock, or scooter peg for easy storage. Looking to add some flair? Our Scooter Heads are wildly popular and transform scooters into your child’s favorite animal. Kids also love our Streamers attached to their handlebars! One of our Micro HQ’s favorite personal touches? Add your name to your scooter or helmet with our Name Sticker Sets! You can trust our line of quality accessories to keep you safe and stylish.
Take Care Of Your Micro
Our scooters are built to last, so you can count on having your Micro practically forever! With that said, there are a few things you can do to keep your scooter in tip top shape, and make it last for years to come. We have a whole blog post on scooter care, but some of our top tips include: Storing your scooter in a dry place, giving it a rinse every once in a while, and checking bolts and screws periodically to see if they could use tightening. Also occasionally a part of scooter ownership-- replacement parts! If something gets worn or breaks, you can bet we have the replacement (and video instructions). Don’t forget about your 2 year warranty, too!
Find Your Favorite Place to Ride
Now that we’ve got that covered, all that’s left is finding your favorite place to ride! If your little one is just learning how to scoot, they’ll surely love riding in the comfort of their home. Fear not! Our wheels don’t leave marks. Our top tips for finding the perfect outdoor scooting path? Pick somewhere smooth and dry. A park or neighborhood sidewalk are great places to start!
We hope you love your new Micro, and trust that you’ll enjoy it for years to come!
