DIY Electric Skateboards Hub Motors anyone?


#1

Hello I apologize if this has already been discussed but has anyone tried/reviewed Dexters/DIY Electric Skateboard hubs yet ? Just wondering how they stack up against Hummies , Jacobs, and CarveOns. Ride safely friends.


#2

On pre order mate …

Don’t think anyone has


#3

I have a dual that was just shipped out today… I assume that no one else has gotten one yet.


#4

Think ur the only one mate… We all wait for your review


#5

It will probably arrive late this week or early next week. All depends on how nice UPS feels about me.


#6

Lol… Don’t worry they hate you like everyone else lol

Please make your own video when you have a chance … Members would really appreciate your thoughts


#7

Ups actually is my favourite. Always fast and smart, unlike dumbass Canada post that goes on strike every other year LOL


#8

The only thing I would recommend is to make sure you apply “medium threadlock” to the hub wheel bolts when you get them.


#9

looking forward to hearing what the reviews are of these. Also what is the lead time right now if I were to order today ?


#10

I think he could ship it in a day. He just got a shipment of them. Go message him :slight_smile:


#11

What thread lock would you suggest? And how is thread lock applied (forgive my sounding like an idiot, haven’t worked with hub motors bfore)?

@kandmelinda - The hub motors are in stock.

The only trucks I have now are pretty beat up due to horrible shipping practices so It’s $20 less for the current trucks. Save $20 bucks w/ the current kits. I have new trucks which should be available in 1-2 weeks.

@anorak234 - I only refer to the 6 bolts that hold the hub wheel. Due to the vibrations they may loosen but with threadlock they hold tight. Medium Threadlock should be good enough.


#13

Do they go on regular trucks?


#14

@Hummie - Just paris or round hanger type trucks. They should fit on Gullwing Sidewinders and most of the round trucks.
