UPDATE 03/22/16 MODIFICATIONS LIST+ADDED PICTURE
In order of importance
-Adjusted the bottom screw where the deck meets the handlebars to my liking. This along with a piece of Velcro tape on the other side of the screw where deck meets handlebars to minimizes noise+vibration tremendously. I like it JUST when the locking takes a bit of force to lock into place.
-hair tie tied against the folding pin, screwed down to the kickstand to minimize vibrations.
-Reds ceramic bearings. China one, not swiss. There is no difference. (Ebay because I found it for $35)
-"AOR power" headlight tail light set. (Amazon)
-local skateshop grip tape. (No more razor symbols, thank god!)
-"Gulaki" (Amazon) bike mount
-"Mirrycle incredible brass bell" (Amazon)
UPDATE 03/21/16 AIR TIRE vs ORIGINAL UPDATE
Replacing the polyurethane wheels with air tires isn't for everyone. If you want to, Google and order the "Micro Scooter 200mm pneumatic" wheel.
It is harder to push efficiently and you glide for a lot less. I've tried side by side (my gf chose to keep the original PU wheels) with the standard wheels. You do get amazing shock absorption qualities for a smooth ride, though. You can also safely mount a phone mount (on a scooter! what!)
Bought two for traveling around Denver with my gf! (going there end of April, will update sometime in May when we return!)
We have been riding it around town until the trip comes around.
Just really quickly why I chose scooters, and why I chose THIS one:
-Don't want to be dependent on cabs and waste extra $$$ (can't bring our cars across the country!)
-Portable: you can ride to the train station, or bus station and just fold it up in 2 seconds and take it with you.
-Extremely efficient for distances under 1-2 miles. Can go longer and we have. (8 miles)
-Costs about a third of the Xootr, with the same functionality. Some little tweaks can make this scooter into a $300 xootr.
Tweaks I made:
1. Change the bearings. I know a lot of people say that bearing don't matter. Roll times don't matter. But I can first hand say that I bought "reds ceramic bearings" the made in China one with the cream colored package (The "Swiss precision" ceramic is simply overpriced for no reason). It rides beautifully.
PROTIP: it's easy to do yourself. Youtube it. Just make sure you don't over-tighten the wheel back on as it slows the wheel spin. And don't keep it too loose, as it rattles.
2. Fold your scooter. Look by (under?) the front wheel, there is a screw by the bottom, towards the front. When the scooter is unfolded, that screw grinds against the standing platform and makes a rattling noise. Dampen this by taking the fluffy side of velcro and taping it right where that screw touches the bottom of the standing platform. That will dampen the noise and help with vibration.
3. I also bought lights for it. Look up "AOR Power® #AR130 LED Bike Headlight and Taillight Set". It's an amazing deal as they come with a white light for the front and a red for the back. I'm attaching the red to my backpack when scooting.
4. I ordered 200mm AIR filled Micro Kickboard tires. Word is, they fit the Razor A5 lux's front without modifications, but the back with an extra washer. Good thing I want to put only one in the front of each of the scooters for shock absorption and smooth ride. With the benefit of a harder tire in the back for speed. Having all air tires is a drag. Literally. It takes more effort to push. Will update when tested.
I take a lot of time writing these reviews, so I hope you found this helpful! (If you did, there's a button to let me know!!! ;])
Tires and Ride:
1. Razor A5 - Tires are firm but you wont rattle your teeth because the tires are so Tall. Since they are so large, very small imperfections in the road are not noticeable. It glides very well. Although the tires are narrow, since it is so tall, it would take a pretty deep crack on the pavement to make me fall over. Score 9/10
2. Xootr - Tires aren't too large so you feel more vibration. The longest glide of all scooters. Extremely fast on smooth surfaces. More dangerous on imperfect roads, so can really be used on very well paved roads if you want to be really safe. Score 8/10.
3. Goped - The Rolls Royce of Scooter tires. These tires are big and fat, so you don't have to worry about cracks on the pavement. As long as it isn't an open manhole, I am confident I can go over it. Does not glide as far as the A5 and Xootr but not that far behind them. Score 10/10
1. Razor A5 - It is the lightest of the 3. It is less than 9 pounds based on the scale. Very easy to carry because it isn't heavy and bulky. Score 10/10
2. Xootr - It is also light and easy to carry. Score 9/10
3. Goped - It is heavy because it is built like a tank. Score 7/10
Ease in Folding:
1. Razor A5 - Hands down winner. It is even easier to fold than the previous Razors. Score 10/10
2. Xootr - I dont like the Pin design. Score 5/10
3. Goped - Very easy to fold but primitive locking. Score 8/10
1. Razor A5 - Score 10/10
2. Xootr - Score 6/10
3. Goped - Score 9/10
1. Razor A5 - It has the lowest Deck height, so your standing leg does not have to work so hard. Score 10/10
2. Xootr - It is not as low as the Razor, but since the wheels have an excellent glide, there isnt much effort required. 9/10
3. Goped - It is very high off the ground, so your standing leg has to bend more for each kick. I suppose if you are tall, it won't matter. 8/10
1. Razor A5 - It isn't the prettiest thing out there. I am not too hot on the Red wheels and red grips. The all Aluminum frame looks bland. If I were to compare its looks to a car brand, it would be a Suzuki. Score 6/10
2. Xootr - This is the Ferrari of scooters. It is beautiful. I like looking at it, and so do other people. Score 10/10.
3. Goped - If the looks of the Xootr is like a Ferrari, this would be the Subaru Outback. Score 9/10. It isn't flashy, but it has an understated Quality look about it.
Razor A5 - It is the best all around scooter I have. It is very good in everything except for looks.
*****UPDATE OCT 9,2009*****
I just replaced the stock ABEC 5 bearings with Bones RED bearings which I purchased from Amazon for 12 dollars for 8 bearings. Bones is the benchmark for performance skate bearings. It only took me 10 minutes to remove my old set and replace them with the Bones.
My A5 now glides just as well as my Xootr and is smoother. It is so much faster as well. You get more distance with each kick. And since I only need 4 bearings for my A5, I still have 4 more as spare. I suggest doing the same. Well worth it.
*****UPDATE APRIL 19,2010******
I conducted a very simple test between my A5 and Xootr Mg. I went down a 10 degree hill that levels off, first with the A5 and then the Xootr. I let gravity propel me on both cases so that kicking power can be ruled out.
The A5 went 6 feet further than my Xootr. And I still feel the Bones Reds give a very smooth ride. Definitely smoother and further than the stock bearings of the A5. But, my Xootr still looks awesome, whereas my A5 still looks dull.
Note: I will conduct another test in a few weeks. I will buy 2 sets of replacement wheels from Razor so that I have a new set of tires with the original bearings. 1 set will have original bearings, and another set will have Bones Red. I will then test with a GPS both distance down a hill that levels off, and also acceleration.
This will be an interesting physics experiment. I want this to be a definitive test. I will let you know.
******UPDATE NOVEMBER 3, 2014******
Wow, how time flies when you are having fun. 5 years have passed. When my nephew went to High School I gave him my prized A5 to get him there a lot quicker. Up to the point when I gave it away, it served me very well. It didn't have any problems at all. Mind you I did not do any tricks on it, which is dangerous at my age. But it was a fun way to get around and to tinker around with.
I dont have my notes from the last test I did with the stock bearings against the Bones bearings, but I recall that the A5 went a considerable distance farther when I used the Bones. It sounded different as well since it felt so smooth.
