Review: Fuzion Z300 Pro Complete Scooter

The Fuzion Z300 Pro complete scooter is a great, all-around freestyle scooter for the price, but the deck is the standout feature.

Ask ScooterDad: Is the Grit Invader 125mm the biggest complete scooter around? I am looking for something bigger--with taller bars and a wider deck. The Grit Invader 125mm looks interesting. Any other suggestions?

Answer: 

I think your best bet is going to be to piece together a scooter to get the biggest parts. 125mm wheels are currently the largest wheels out there for typical scooters, but not all decks and forks are compatible with them. In fact, most are not compatible. As for other large parts, the Phoenix Stan Smirnoff deck was one of the largest decks available, but I'm not sure if that is still the case. Phoenix was also making larger Klaar XL bars.

Ask ScooterDad: want to put apex bars on new scooter how do I do that ? also to do a full custom scooter up can you list all parts needed in doing this ?

Answer: 

There are two different types of Apex bars (standard and oversized) and which kind you need depends on what the rest of your setup requires.

For a custom scooter, generally, the parts you need are:

  • Deck
  • Fork
  • Bars
  • Headset
  • Clamp of some kind with associated compression mechanism that works with headset, fork, and bars
  • Wheels
  • Bearings
  • Bearing spacers
  • Axels
  • Wheel spacers (rear, unless brake has a carrier with built in spacers; some forks need wheel spacers as well)
  • Brake
  • Grip tape
  • Grips
