Long time Boosted rider, first time builder. The board I’m starting from is a Vanguard with Paris trucks, so that’s what I’m planning to use, probably with this mount. I’m planning on 97mm wheels with 5M belts on dual 6355s. I’m down for basic lathe operations on the hanger as necessary to facilitate clamp grip or placement (eg, putting on a knurl on it or to remove material and add a heatshrink sleeve).
I suspect I just need to buy my wheels and the mount and then work it out from there, but I’m trying to figure out upfront whether it’s going to be possible to use 15mm belts with this or if I’m going to be stuck on 10mm. The math feels like it should work out for 15mm, but pictures I see of other people’s dual-6355 setups look pretty snug even with 10mm belts. What am I missing in the below calcs?
90mm half width of the hanger - 10mm overhang from the wheels (estimate*) - 4mm motor mount thickness (estimate) - 17mm pulleys - 55mm motor length = 4mm remaining clearance per side.
This looks like there should be room for 6355s with 15mm and 8mm of clearance. Can experienced builders comment on whether this is correct or if I’m going wrong here somewhere?
* EDIT to qualify this estimate a bit. I’m picturing getting these knockoff wheels, which are 52mm wide with center-set hubs, and with a standard 24mm core (10mm spacer + 2*7 bearings), that means 14mm overhang on each side of the wheel rather than my estimated 10mm, so that eats up all my clearance. Has anyone made this work? Wondering if it could be packed in just with even an extra washer pushing each wheel out by 1mm or so?
