Material alone was like 20€. Especially considering that Skike still sells them online for like 4€ a piece I don’t think it is viable. https://skike.com/de/shop/ersatzteile/alle-nordic-skates/sp-kit-080-s-felge-schwarz-5-zoll_25.3.478.263.html
I understand that. Keep in mind that the pulleys, tubes and tires are added expense, the pulleys especially. And they dhow them as ‘in stock’ but the last time I tried to order 3 days later they said they were out.
Yeah but that you have to pay no matter the DIY hubs. For pulleys you can just use standard Kegel pulleys - the diameter is excatly the same and the holes lign up perfectly. That is why I was able to switch the pulley from my Kegel setup to the Skikes without modification (I again used a standoff plate to increase distance between Kegel and pulley). For larger pulleys ;): https://grabcad.com/library/skike-5-pneumatic-wheel-pulley-1
Good info, thanks.
So just tried to pump a skike tire to 6 bar and voila:
Thats a lot of pressure I assume. My 6" wheels are rated at 95psi with original hubs. Thats around 6.3 bar. Not sure would i inflate to max
Too bad, I was hoping
