Hope you’re all good this summertime !?!
Just want to share with you too, what I try to do last year, regarding your actual messages in the differents threads (as 12meterkuk or Kane topic). Cool to see more AT esk8 hybrid-build coming ! I remember when I ask okp last year about this 35° risers. Price is too high for my wallet and not corresponding to my requierment (matrix 2 use). But the design looks cool, licked and I know like I know him, its done well and ride and test it too . So be sure I’m absolutely not discrediting the good work done or the amazing part around here, or the other new thread about it, with a 45° riser, I like it too ! !
But, so I have designed and make them produced last summer. My fkn angled risers for hybrid-build at 30°, in full Alu 7075 quality !! Yeeaaah !!! Also I make it dropthrough-deck compatible (get it lower as you can ) and it reduced a bit the price too, thanks to the simple but strong design.
I paid a bit more than 110€ for both = 1 set (a pair) = 2 pcs, for the raw test prototype (and we told me that the price is a bit higher cause its just a 2 pcs production). Still not tested on ride yet… project stopped last summer cause I was waiting for the top plate after that masterpiece. It already feels super strong, an 8 mm top-plate should be perfect with pockets screws ! (Now that we order another Arbor Axis (bamboo this time) for my lady, the project is back and I could need another set for an easy esk8 AT evolved’like for her ! I will keep my dropthrought prototype for me and make a new one but in one piece for her.
So for my final version, if I could run a small production for some pieces (maybe more than 10 set to save money with a bulk order), with a full Alu part in one piece and with some more details possible (chamfers, lightweighting/cable management, or even anodizing if wanted but this adds more $€£…) for around the same price as my prototypes, it sounds pretty good to me . I don’t want to undercut foot (is that the right expression in english ?) of anyone here, cause everyone in this family make good parts and fair price. Just, like I already say up there, I wanna share it with you ! Cause maybe you could help me too ! And it could give us more diversity too, by the way extending the choice of angle. It should/could be around 100/120€ for a kit I guess ( for a board - 2 pcs). I will visit my prototyping tomorrow, I will ask to have more information and see the new model with him, but all this must also be accompanied by a quote.
If people don’t want to see another topic on this maybe modo could fusion it with another thread.
