Pocket rocket

Unread postAuthor: Brooner115 » Wed Nov 14, 2007 5:06 pm

I'm thinking of buying a Razor electric Pocket Rocket. Are there any mods for this for extra speed or to increase the size so maybe I would fit on it? Or if there is anything better to buy that has the same quality for the same price? The pocket rocket from Razor is aroung 199$

thanks I appreciate it.

yes I looked around for mods and couldn't find anything so don't tell me to go search around. Thanks.

well let me tell you that those things are crap they cant make a 5th grader go over 15 mph just get a gas powered one.But if you really want a electric bike put a good scooter motor on it to possibly give it a little power.

My friend recently got a pocket bike about a week ago and its extremely fast. If you are going to get one, definitely get a gas because those will go up to 45 miles an hour and you don't have to charge it up every hour. :? There are usually places which sell them for pretty cheap online or locally. If you are a large guy, you won't be getting over 10 miles an hour with that thing because of the low torque and will strain the motor.

Well russ seeing so i was going to buy one from there, i'd suggst not. There was a big discussion about it on the news, there bikes are cheap and have no brands. I mean they are ok, but i wouldnt say they are reliable bikes though, and eerything about them seems so dis-organised, and basically all they want to do is sell sel sell! I went in there they suggest i sat on this bike (it was a hot pink colour) they said only for reference, but then they started to hangle me into it, oooh we'll throw in a free helmet etc. But i mean go on that site, they sell camping tents for good sake, basically anything they can get in they wanna sell i guess.

I'm with thespeedycicada on this one, I think that a electric (or gas) powered bike or schooter would be a better alternative. Or you can be really odd and origional and try this alternative:the rocket pack!
I would much rater perfer a pocket rocket launcher though :D

i didn't read the other replies but i think there pretty sweet. my little brother is a little spoiled and got 3 different kinds of razor scooters, what i did was take a battery out of one and put it on another so there were 3 batteries altogether. i drove it on the beach and it went alot faster...DO NOT GO OVER # BATTERIES if you try to hook up four it will severely mess up the control board thing.

if you need any help lemme know, i did this a while back so i dont remember to much but ill help out best i can.


" i also got pulled over by the cops one time when i was going to the gas station to get a drink. so make sure to ride it on your own private property.
