Fairly new to the forums, but have been scouring the pages a little bit.
Pretty much I’m wanting an electric board, caught between the two options and can’t seem to make a final decision.
I’m mainly looking for transport/commuting, but coming from a 1000+cc motorbike, I’m wanting something that I can still get excited with. In saying that I’m also after simplicity and reliability for day to day use.
I’ve tried a rental E-Go, which got my interest in electric boards, however with perhaps underwhelming performance.
I’m fairly new to skateboards as such, with some snowboarding background, however I feel I picked it up pretty quickly.
Not even positive what sort of board I should be looking at to start with.
I’m a qualified mechanic with 8yrs working on cars, and some auto electrical work, so I reckon a board build is definitely within my grasp. I just don’t want to have to be fiddling with something everyday.
Basically, looking for anyone who has built a board and found it has over complicated things?
Or has bought an off-the-shelf board and wished they had built one?
Are the benefits of building one worth it when I just want to ride?
Thanks in advance for any and all feedback.
