Scooter Parts You Ought to be Familiar with
Most of the readers are perhaps already aware of the scooter parts, but for the beginners here is a list of the basic parts of a freestyle two wheeler.
Decks- Decks are the heaviest and the largest part of the scooters. It is more of a frame or a platform upon which the entire two wheeler is designed. Decks are always made of aluminum and can even be constructed from the stock pieces.
Bars- Bars serves as the primary connection or contact point between the bike and the rider. Therefore getting the correct feel and fit is essential as even the slightest of mistakes can prove deadly. Bars are generally made of aluminum and steel but for the beginners as well as the relatively inexperienced riders, steel is always a better choice as aluminum being lighter in weight, makes the bars fragile which in turn makes it occasionally difficult to control the bike.
Grips- Grips too serves as contact points between the bike and the rider. Grips are available in several types and colors, the commonest being ODI longneck grips and Animal Edwin grips.
Clamp- Clamp connects the bars to the forks of the two wheeler to make it rotate freely without slipping apart from one another.
Headset- The headsets are more or less a modular unit comprising of top cap, cups, bearings and bearing cups that allows smooth fork rotation within the bike head tube.
Brakes- They helps in bringing the moving bike to a sudden stop in cases of emergency.
Fork- The fork provides support to the front wheels and extends through the bike head tubes to the bars. At the bars, forks are combined with a clamp together.
Wheels, axles, spacers and bearings are some of the other key parts of scooters.
