Looking through Scooter-Sport I found that the link for StrideGlide, the Minnesota scooters, was broken, so I stripped off everything after the “.com” to see if they were still there. They were, with a new website.
Some of the new content is a video that shows folks doing some odd things on their StrideGliders, including a move that I would think was a lawyers’ nightmare: hopping off the moving scooter and running a few steps astride it, before hopping back on. One slip and I suspect you would leave your teeth on the handlebar.
Still, if you’re interested in a scooter that’s actually made in the U.S.A., check ’em out.
