Scooter Front Suspension

Discussion in 'Scooters' started by johnno, Sep 21, 2006.

  1. Hi all,

    Just a simple question; does the front suspension on a scooter work the same way as a motorcycle? The reason I ask is that the angle of the forks does not appear that it can work in an up and down motion.
  2. yeah, they're both telescopic forks (apart from the hub-steer freaks like dragsters and speedfights). it's just the head-angle is a little steeper; making them twitchier; they still pretty much work the same.
