How To | Building a Custom Complete| Pro Scooter Shop

Building your very own custom complete pro scooter can be an intimidating process. As I explained in my previous blog article, it’s hard to know which parts are right for you, which parts are compatible with each other, and what sizes you need your parts to come in. However, the positive aspects of building your own custom complete pro scooter significantly outweigh the negatives, as I already mentioned in my previous blog article. This is especially true when you take the time to do the proper research and make sure that you have a firm understanding of all of the components of your scooter and their functions.

First of all, it is very important to have an understanding of what your personal preferences are when it comes to scooter components. The first component that you want to pick out is your scooter deck, which essentially comes down to the dimensions that you prefer and the design that you like best. From there, you need to decide what style and dimension of bars you prefer and be sure to make sure that the bars you end up choosing are in relation to the dimensions of your deck. After these two major components are chosen, all that is really left to decide upon is the fork, wheels, headset, compression, grips, and grip tape, which can all be decided with the help of a Pro Scooter Shop employee or by asking around at your local skate park.

As you can see here, the process for building your own custom complete pro scooter is less challenging than it may seem. Once you start getting your hands dirty and understand all of the components of a pro scooter and how they work together then building one is much easier. One tip that we, at Pro Scooter Shop, would want to give to anyone who is attempting to build his or her very first custom scooter is that you should definitely get the help or advice of a professional before spending a lot of time and money trying to do it all on your own. Hopefully this article was of some help to all of you and be sure to share it with your friends if they are planning on buying their own custom complete pro scooter!
