Halacha - Scooter for children in shabbat
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: It is fine. The primary problem with a bike is the risk that the chain may fall off and require a repair, which would be forbidden on Shabbos. Since scooters and skates are simpler and contain to chains, there is less risk of needing fixing and there are no grounds for concern.
