Hi everyone, after a lot of reading I feel I end up with more questions than answers. I bought a moutainboard a few years back for low wind situations but barely used given that when the wind was enough it was also enough to kitesurf :p. So I thought of recycling buy making an E MTB out of it.
The board i have is a Kheo kicker ( https://www.kitesurge.com/product/kheo-kicker-orange/ ) What I would like is a range around 12Km, a top speed closing to 40/45 km/h and a decent hill climbing capacity. (And i am around 75 Kg)
At first I wanted to go for a single motor set up but after some reading I am wondering if I can achieve what I want with it.
The TorqueBoard motors 6380 170kv or 6374 190kv seems relevent I would go with the ESC from DIYeletricskateboard For the battery i hesitate between follwing the path of @Namasaki with https://www.electric-skateboard.builders/t/high-power-10s-lipo-battery-pack-with-bms/10014/5 or getting on from (Like the 12s2p). What would be the difference if I was to had one more pack in Namasaki post and make it a 12s1p in terms of capability ? (adding a BMS and a sparkless switch ?)
The mechanical part is the one giving me the most trouble as it seems that most kits, and user non-pneumatic small wheels (80-90 mm). First i think i whould have to change the trucks (both or only the driving one ) ? but would i have to change the wheels too (they have holes that seems viable to put a pulley) ? And then what mounts/belt/pulleys would you recommend ?
As it is my first build I would tend to buy from the same shop (for conviniecy and shipping cost ) and DIYes seems to offer most of what i would need
Adding to a remote and a charger (Are there things to look for in a charger ?) I would have all i need.
Do you guys have some advise on top of all my (many) questions ? I will greatly appreciate any help or comment !
