Please shoot some holes in my build plan, I want it bullet proof and reliable.
Needs: -Commuter Board -SplashProof/WaterProof. Lots of puddles from irrigation on the paved trails here -Reliable -Range (real-world 10miles+) -Speed 15-20mph is fine -Single 6355 belt drive -Kicktail Downhill board -83mm wheels (because of clearence with above board-style) -10s3p (3000mah or 3500mah)
I live in a mostly flat city, Boise,ID. I’m 170lbs.
Nothing has been purchased yet, but I’m about to pull the trigger.
I’d consider buying used parts too, if they are in almost new condition.
My PartsList: I’ve been reading all over the forum and there are many opinions, so i just wanted to tie them together all here and get feedback to build a reliable yet budget board. I wont be cranking up any crazy hills so shouldn’t be putting that much load on the board
