Ask ScooterDad: The spacers on my scooter are small what can I do to fix this?

Answer: 

If you mean headset spacers, those can be purchased from scooter parts retailers. If you mean rear wheel spacers, those are more difficult. Check with retailers or try the hardware section of an Ace Hardware or similar store. Your best bet is to try to get the OEM replacements.

Ask ScooterDad: Hello, I have a non integrated scooter but want a new integrated deck and headset. Is there anything else that I need?

Answer: 

If your current scooter already has a threadless fork and some kind of compression other than threaded, then you should be able to move everything over to the new deck and headset. Some decks and forks, however, don't fit well together if the fork is long and the headtube is short. You may need to cut the fork or use headset spacers.

Ask ScooterDad: Besides buying a new headset and a new deck do I need anything to convert from non-integrated to integrated?

Answer: 

You can't convert a deck from non-integrated to integrated. That refers to how the headset cups are built into the deck. There is no way to convert a deck from one type to the other.

If the Grit bars are standard diameter with a slit cut in them, then they should work on any scooter with a threaded fork and threaded headset, like the MGP models sold att Walmart.

Ask ScooterDad: Where can I buy a oversized integrated headset?

Answer: 

Headsets are one standard sized, regardless of bar size (oversized or standard), so you don't need to worry about buying an "oversized" headset. Just buy a regular integrated, threadless headset. (All integrated headsets should be threadless.)

Ask ScooterDad: Whats the difference between a " Grit CX I Series and a Atom pro scooter. Is there any model close to the Grit CX I but more affordable?

Answer: 

Grit Atom: http://www.gritscootersusa.com/collections/pro-scooters/products/grit-at...

Grit CX I: http://www.gritscootersusa.com/collections/pro-scooters/products/grit-cx...

The Atom has plastic core 100mm wheels instead of metal core 110mm wheels on the CX I. The Atom has a threaded headset while the CX I has a threadless headset with HIC compression. The CX I has stronger bars. The CX I is definitely a step up from the Atom. The CX I would be a better platform for adding upgraded parts later.
