Alright…would love some opinions and feedback regarding this - I’ve done some major research and I think I can do this for $800-$850 Total
Power (only going 6s) I can always upgrade later honestly this will be sketchy where I ride any faster.
Wheels (still trying to hunt down black ones)
Mount (i see this as the only option at the moment)
Gear & Pulleys
(actually still stuck here but it’ll only be another $50ish cost wise (i hope)). It doesn’t look like I can use the Evolve ones I’m also considering getting evolve wheels to make this part easier.
Looking for a BMS in Australia still.
Some people are not going to like some of my choices (cheap HK mount especially) but for the Evolve trucks there really is no options unless I want to spend 300AUD on mounts. So I’m willing to give it a go for science worst comes to worst I’ll do as @Boxer86 did with the steel.
I figure with the max speed the mounts are going to have a chance if I was building a 60km beast I’d avoiding them 100% - some parts definitely wouldn’t go cheap on and yes this is a huge component (open to better solutions) but realistically no matter which way I went I’d be modding the fk out of it to fit evolve trucks (yes i really want to use evolve trucks)
Questions/concerns/feedback welcome. I’m open to trying things and maybe we can all learn from this build.
Cheers for the input so far this forum really has some awesome people and I’ve gone from zero to knowing a shit load in a short amount of time thanks to everyone here! Still plenty to learn but I think I’m at the point I need to start doing to figure out if I’m way off or on track so research on hold for now…
