- Not true. he had interactions on this forum going much further back. Define 'business'. AFAIK a business around here is a group of friends agreeing to purchase things in a forum. It appeared to me he had quite a bit of history dealing with jacob hubs or variations of them and modifying them to help resolve wheel slippage issues.
I don't think you should be saying blanket statements like this to try and prove points
This is your opinion 100% and you are also assuming far too much. If you read what I wrote previously (it's ok I wrote a lot) you would see that I was getting a custom build. So how do you know yours were better at all? You are presuming so.
How can you say better attention to detail when your site looks like it does? Your site isn't more confidence inspiring than his was at the time... I am being brutally honest with you right now. I'm comparing https://psychotiller.com/product/custom-build-1 with https://www.aatorquesystems.com/product-page/mach-1-elite as a consumer and a web-developer.
His blows yours out of the water. He has more attention to detail just comparing these two pages. I would trust his before yours - and my 15 years of experience building websites and doing customer usability research informs me that any consumer with $1300 to spend would agree with me. You obviously do not weight they same things I do as a consumer - instead you say we are 'noobs' and just don't know.
The custom build you offer right now for $1300 does not stack up to the spec's I was purchasing at $1150 and would perform like crap where I live in S.F. I need more battery and more low-end torque and I need a shit ton more than you're offering at 1300 because every hill where I live is between 15-23 degrees and I live at the top of a 2-mile long hill climb.
- Nope - again I PM'd other people on these forums and did lots of research. You didn't read what I wrote. He was not the first person I reached out to.
I actually tried to reach out to 4 or 5 other reputable members to purchase boards or inquire about a custom for my needs and never got responses from quite a few and the 2 that did respond to me referred me to others who did not respond to my PM's.
I wanted to find someone local - in my area to work with. I wanted to support a local e-skate company that was offering completes (he's local to me, within an hour).
