    I doubt that's what it is, these are àdult-sized scooters which they ride at all times of day! As if it's a new trend.

    If you're talking about adult scooters, that started up again a few years back, sounds like these folks are just catching up. Cost a fortune for what they are, although I suppose much like skateboards. Viva la hipsta

    That's interesting, I wonder how it started. Still, the people I see riding them aren't hipsters, just random women.

    It's been going on for years, there's shops all over the place that sell custom scooters, that used to be purely skateboards, guessing theses places have had to expand to compete with the internet.
