Alright boys now we start the fun / aggravation / pure bliss
Im going to start off by yes this is my 1st build however im super handy, frugal (not cheap), very detail oriented, and by no means lazy. Project background: Im not trying to make the fastest board out there. I am aware of the law of Diminishing Returns. However, i am an adrenaline junkie so i would like to make a decent board. Somewhere around 20-25mph should be fine. if i wanted to go slower i would just use my non-eboards. =P As for range, i would like to be able to ride for about 2 hours, not full throttle of course. maybe 25km range? this is a pleasure board not a commuter but that does not mean i wont make an excuse to run errands with it. Im located on the East Coast of Florida so i doubt there is much for hills in my future. I’m 6’1’’ and 185 lbs. I am Absolutely open to suggestions and encourage it. if i say or do something wrong tell me. much better to fix or do it right the first time. Saves my ever thinning wallet.
