Subject: Diggler Dog Scooter for Sale ( Alpha Disk Model )
First I'd like to apologize if my posting on this site is
" unwanted " ( since I'm selling a scooter and all I see are rigs on this site), or if For Sale ads are for members only.
Anyway, I purchased a Diggler Dog scooter on CraigsList last year and I find that I really prefer cycling with my dog instead. I've got a German-Short-Hair-Pointer who knows only one speed - - -FAST!!! So it was suggested to me by folks who have experience in dog scootering to try and get a scooter with disc brakes because mountain bike style rim brakes would just constantly need to be replaced due to the dog's strength and my constant applying of the brakes to stop / slow down my " freight train of a dog ".
Well, I checked out a new Diggler scooter with Disc brakes and the price at that time was $599.00! No way could I spend that! So I kept checking around, for close to a year looking for a used one when I finally decided that it's not gonna happen - -
I may as well buy a scooter with mountain bike brakes and replace the brake pads as needed. I checked out various scooter brands but always came back to Diggler. The quality of their scooters seemed to me to be above that of the other brands I saw. So I bought a Diggler Dirt Dawg Scooter with 16" wheels, extra high handlebar ( for adult height ) and
mountain bike type brakes. It also has shocks on the front fork and I added a rear fender, water bottle cage, handlebar bag, front & rear LED lights and a bell.
I didn't use a tugline. I felt more comfortable having my dog at my side, as with biking, so I used a " Walky Dog " bicycle attachment on the scooter and it worked quite well!
WELL, then I saw it, on CraigsList--- a Diggler scooter with disc brakes! Good price, 10 miles from my home!
So now I have two. I was gonna sell my first scooter, the Dirt Dawg but have decided to sell the Alpha Disk instead because I found that I actually DO prefer biking vs. scootering with my dog and since I've sold my " dog bike ",
I'll purchase another bike with the money gotten for the scooter. I do have a recumbent bike but there's no way that I'll use that with my HYPERSPEED dog. I'm 62 yrs. old and have broken my left wrist once and DO NOT need any more broken bones!!!
Whew, sorry for this long post.
Bottom Line: I'm selling the Alpha Disk scooter for $350.00
or best offer. It's a few years old but in GREAT shape!
It's blue, I've added a rear fender, water bottle cage and mounted a "Walky Dog " attachment near the front fork and another one on a post near the rear wheel. ( You can remove the post and attachments and use a tugline if you wish ).
I'd be happy to send photos via email so you can see it.
Incidently, the entire "Walky Dog " setup is included.
See it here: www.thedogoutdoors.com
Also, a medium size Alpine Urban Trails Harness, red, is included.
A new Alpha Disk scooter is over $600.00 now!
