I get a lot of emails, Facebook messages, YouTube comments, as well as kids and parents in person asking me about parts compatibility. Nearly every question revolves around the compatibility of forks, bars, headsets, and clamps/compression systems. This is by far the most difficult part of building a scooter for people who aren't already deep into the sport. Because freestyle scootering is still a very new sport, a lack of industry standards and definitive best practices has led to a wide range of parts and technology implementations. While innovation and variety are great for the progression of scooter parts, it has made the situation difficult for parents and kids who are trying to learn about building scooters.
Over the last couple of months, I've spent about 100 hours of development time into creating the Scooter Configurator feature for ScooterDad.com. The purpose of this feature is to help reduce the confusion that people experience when trying to figure out what parts will work with their scooter. I've done my best to compile a large list of products (headsets, bars, forks, and clamps) and assess their compatibility with each other and the major integration systems. If you don't know what to choose for one of the parts, the Scooter Configurator will provide a list of compatible recommendations. If you don't know two or more of your parts, you'll can try different parts and use the compatibility matrix to find parts that will work.
I hope that people who need this information find this tool useful. I've done my best to provide a tool that kids and parents can use for part selection prior to purchasing. Please check out the Scooter Configurator here: ScooterDad's Scooter Configurator
The Scooter Configurator provides no guarantee of accuracy. I've done my best to compile accurate data, but you are ultimately responsible for ensuring that your parts are compatible before making any purchases. If you find any inaccuracies or missing parts, please contact me at email@example.com and I will do my best to add them to the tool.
