PRLog - Nov. 14, 2011 - SOUTH PASADENA, Calif. -- The latest addition to the UrbanScooters.com Marketplace has arrived. The Go-Ped Sport gas powered scooter is now listed in The UrbanScooters.com Marketplace. The Marketplace is a comparison shopping engine that pairs customers with merchants selling wheeled products for fun and transportation. The Go-Ped Sport is the very first scooter Patmont Motor Works made, over twenty years ago. The simple design and top shelf quality have kept it going as one of the companies best selling products.
Go-Ped Sport Gas Scooter
The Go-Ped Sport gas scooter offers the rider many great features, including, but not limited to; up to a 22 mph speed, a simple direct friction drive, excellent torque for great hill climbing, 400 lbs. carrying capacity, solid rubber Go-Active tires and top notch reliability and efficiency.
The Go-Ped Sport's direct drive system eliminates the necessity of a centrifugal clutch, the chain and all of the drive gears. Direct drive is an extremely simple, efficient way to draw power from the motor. The rider finds, on top of the rear tire, the wheel that drives the motor. When the Sport is stopped, the motor shuts off. To get the scooter going, the rider uses a technique called "bump starting" to trigger the motor. Simply put, bump starting is a combination of pushing the scooter while twisting the throttle. While that might sound like a lot of work, many riders wouldn't have it any other way. Bump starting has become a trend and a cool feature for many riders, especially young scooter enthusiasts. With a direct drive system, there is no need for a transmission, chain or clutch. These features draw power from the motor, so getting rid of them increases efficiency. Simplicity is the reason for the Go-Ped Sport's success. When it was first released, it set the bar so high, no other company could come close to matching its quality and functionality. In fact, it took new advancements from Go-Ped itself to take the industry to the next level.
Other brand name scooters, notably those manufactured in China, focus on achieving a low price and build a variety of added features into their models. Quality is rarely a top priority. Some Chinese manufactured scooters offer decent quality, but most are of poor quality. Go-Ped takes an entirely different approach with the Sport and all motorized scooters and karts they build. They focus on quality from beginning to end. The Sport frame is manufactured from a straight seamless piece of 4130 Chromoly tubing. They use a mandrel tube bender to bend the tube into shape. That means no crimping and no welding. A strong powder coating technique is used to apply paint to the frame. Most scooters manufactured in China are constructed using cheap angle iron. This angle iron is welded, spray painted and covered up by a cheap plastic body. The difference in quality is significant.
Go-Ped brand scooters are made in the USA, by people with an extensive background in stand-up scooters and go-kart racing. Their knowledge translates into products that are both high performance, extremely durable and ready to provide years of reliable fun and transport.
