We purchased a mini Micro scooter for DS1's third birthday last week. Now I get to run after him as he zooms around, but I am thinking it looks so much fun! I want one! So does DH
Does anyone have an adult sized scooter that you can recommend? I am not sure where to start. I think my main concern is that DH and I want to share it-- I am 5 foot 4 and he is 6 foot 3, so it has to be very adjustable! It would only be used for zipping about with DS1 and we are not fussy about price

Will be looking at this thread for some ideas. My eldest dd needs a bigger scooter and is quite tall, so if there are some adult scooters for her, that would be fantastic!! I will just run behind the 4 to catch up to them.

How tall is your dd? I am hoping for something tall for my dd.

Both DH and I have one, although my scooting days are well and truly over now, it doesn't quite work with crutches.
But it is great.
We often scooted to school with him, and then the dog started coming with us as well.
There are heaps of adults scooters out there. It is really about weight, as much as size, and there are even scooters for the heavier adults.
I think mine was a JDbug and DH's a razor or some sort. One has a flexi type board- more for stunts.

That would sell the scooter by itself with the person on it!!

Bought my DH a scooter for Christmas so he could keep up with miss 4 at the park - it's an AirFlex, one of the adult scooters in the micro scooter range - folds down, he loves it ( we even took them both on holidays a few weeks ago - put them in a second suitcase on the plane)

Can recomened the micro scooters for adults, DH has been using his to commute to work across the Harbour Bridge for over 10 years. He has gone through 3 scooters and 1 collar bone in this time. The micro scooters last longer and seem more solid than the razors.
Don't forget your helmet, broken bones usually heal, brain injuries may not!

DH has a Razor, he bought it to encourage DS to use his. They have a great time scootering in the driveway and at the local park. Occasionally I commandeer it, it's great fun.
I really wish I had one when I used to commute.

DH and I both have a razor. We regularly go scooting with our 2 boys. Love it !! The kids are also significantly more keen on scooting since we joined them. Cheap, fun activity for the family and because they fold up its so easy to take them with us anywhere.

I've got a Madd Gear Pro that's rated to 100kg. It's nice to ride on, but I've only got a cheaper Razor to compare it to.

something like this $300
This is the most popular model based on the price and for adults not kids
or the entry level model for a teen to small adult $190
Kids model ages 5 - 9 is a T5
Can be used like a scooter to push off. Once you get the motion of it though it is more a slalom skiing motion. An arms and leg workout. Why should kids have all the fun.
Quite often my son is on his Razor scooter and my husband is on the T8. Our nearly 4 year old already show interest in her brothers T5 model.

We have the adult micro scooter in blue. Its great, smooth ride, escellent quality, but pricey.
We also have the A5 Razor scooter for adults. Not as sturdy as the micro but a good back up for when we do family scooting. We're a 4 scooter family and love it.

I Street Sup when out with my daughter and shes on her scooter I get the best core and tricep work out at the same time.

I've got the Miro Scooter 'White'. Think it was around $279. It is a very smooth ride and you just have to push off once and it seems to go for ages before pushing again. It is a bit of a girly looking scooter too (....which keeps DH off it)!!

Both DH and I have a Razor. Love it ! We regularly scoot as a family on weekends. It's quite a workout actually. Good for the quads !

I bought a JD bug big wheel for myself not long after I bought DSthen5 one for the same reasno as the OP. 100kg weight limit and still going strong, although it's now DSalmost5 on his mini micro I head out with as a team.
I like the 125mm wheels - less likely to get caught in cracks than the 100mm.

I have a Xootr. It is rated to 136kg, and the deck is wide enough to stand with both feet side by side. It has a front and back brake as well. I love it.

I am looking at buying an adult scooter for scooting with DS and for commuting. I like the look of this one.

I bought my DH a razor ultra pro ( one with a higher weight) and either he or I ride with the girls.. It was great to keep up with them in the caravan park on holidays recently ..
