How to Build your DIY Sprite Scooter

The DIY Sprite is the first Micro scooter that young riders can build themselves (with the help of their favourite adult). It comes with eleven different parts to assemble with an Allen key included. The Micro DIY Sprite is Swiss designed with every micro detail in mind so that quality is ensured even when built by a pair of little hands (under adult supervision, of course).

On this page you'll find an easy-to-follow instruction video and step by step guide for this fun project.
You can also download these instructions or print from this pdf.

  • Unclip the handle bars from the downwards position
  • Press the push button on the side of the handles and insert them into position inside the T bar until the push button clicks out into place
  • Pull the handle bars up as far as they can go until the black push button at the top of the lower tube clicks into place
  • Push the black push button in and remove the entire silver T bar section
  • Place the locking clamp over the end of the T bar section and reinsert the T bar into the lower tube
  • You will need to push in the black push button in order to place it back into its original position
  • Align the clamp so the rear of the clamp slots into the groove of the T bar
  • You then need to push the clamp into position so it sits at the top of the lower tube

Step 5

DIY Sprite Step 5

  • Tighten the screw at the back of the clamp fully and when opening the clamp lever ensure that there is some resistance
  • If the lever is too loose when opening and closing, tighten the allen screw on the side of the clamp to resolve this
  • Ensure that the locking clamp at the base of the scooter also shows some resistance when opening and closing as this keeps the scooter locked into position
  • Place the lower clamp at the base of the lower tube
  • Place both the0020lower clamp and lower T tube over the head of the steering fork so that it sits inside of the Lower tube
  • Ensure the lower tube is pushed down all the way

Step 6

DIY Sprite Step 6

  • Align the front wheel so that it is perpendicular to the handle bars (extend the handle bars fully for best perspective)
  • Once aligned, tighten the allen screws on the lower clamp
  • Ensure that you give a couple of turns on one screw, then a couple of turns on the other and alternate back and forth between each screw until both are fully tightened
  • Be careful not to burr the screws

Your scooter should now be complete and ready to use! 

We always recommend regular servicing and maintenance of our scooters to ensure that

all of the bolts and axles are fully tightened as they can on occasion come loose with use.
