1. Fix what needs fixing

Fix up your kick scooterOur first of 4 New Years Eve resolutions to keep is to update or fix any parts your current kick scooter that need it. Lots of kick scooters are very durable, but that doesn’t mean they’re indestructible. Even small cracks left unattended can turn into a major problem. Most people don’t even think of fixing up a kick scooter like they do a bike. Trust us: kick scooters, just bikes, can use maintenance checkups and updates. Don’t let your kick scooter become dangerous. Make sure that all the parts are working properly and will last longer than a month.
