A third reason you should consider a Xootr is because of its convenience factors.
1. You can fold the scooter in as little as five seconds.
2. You have the option of purchasing a carrying strap. From the website: The Xootr carry strap allows you to easily carry your scooter when folded. Once you reach your destination, just lower the handlebar and sling the scooter over your shoulder. The cost is $15 and I think that is a relatively small price to pay for convenience!
3. Need to carry stuff while Xooting? No problem: You can buy a BASKET for your Xootr Scooter!
4. Want to travel with your Xootr? No problem; Xootr sells a customized bag that fits the Xootr.
5a. Because of the carrying strap, the Xootr is fairly convenient to haul around in stores. I save time and hassle from having to lock up the Xootr. Sometimes, I roll the Xootr into stores and stick it in a corner. (I still have my Xootr; obviously, no one has stolen it yet.)
5b. Because I can bring the Xootr in with me, I save time by not having to lock it up the way that I would have to lock up a bike.
On Monday: Part 4 - Xootrs can enhance your social life.
Disclosure 1: UCLA does not officially condone the purchase of a Xootr. Xootr is not paying me to exalt their product.
