Retractable Bike Scooter: A Delightfully Dangerous Bonding Opportunity

You can jam a child seat on the back for infants, or a couple of pegs on the back wheel to carry a friend, but neither of those solutions seem as novel or original as Jared Loveless' scooteRack: a rear-mounted retractable scooter that… » 6/03/13 11:41am 6/03/13 11:41am

These Official Razor Scooters Shoot Sparks and Make Marks

Ah, the Razor scooter! You were once accessory du jour. Everyone had one, well, until everyone grew up and realized it was sort of silly to scoot around like a tween. So how do you stay relevant? By attaching chalk to the back of a scooter and adding a "spark bar" that shoots out a trail of sparks? Uhh... » 4/29/11 1:20am 4/29/11 1:20am
