Phoenix Switchblade Installation on non-Phoenix Decks

Phoenix Switchblade Installation on non-Phoenix Decks

The best way to improve your current brake, if it's not already a Phoenix Switchblade, is to replace it with a Switchblade.

Scooter riders are always trying to figure out how to dial their scooters. Unfortunately, spring brakes have been a big problem in this area for many years. No matter what you do to them, they almost always rattle to a certain degree. The best thing you can do to solve this problem is to replace the brake with a flex fender style brake. I recommend the Phoenix Switchblade brake as it is extremely high quality, inexpensive, and made of spring steel for long-lasting performance. In addition to cutting down on the rattle, this style of brake will also make it more difficult to lock up your rear wheel so it offers some protection against flat spots.

Unfortunately, most decks are not built for a Phoenix Switchblade, but the process isn't too difficult. If you aren't comfortable using power tools or being precise with alignments, ask a parent or older friend to help you out.

Dialing a District V2's Brake

Stopping the rattle on a District V2's brake is easier than you think!

One of my scooter kid's competition scooters has a District V2 deck and, as much as he loves it, it has always bother me how much the brake rattles. He usually complains about his scooter not being "dialed", but for some reason he has overlooked it on this deck, although I think it has secretly bothered him. Despite the rattling brake, the District V2 deck is a great deck for younger kids who can benefit from a lighter deck with a wide, flat grinding/stalling surface.
