I know this is a DIY forum and this is like 1/4 DIY at best, but just wanted to show everyone my latest deck swap.
I’ve ridden a couple Chinese hub motor boards and always though the experience would be change drastically with a couple of quality components.
Meepo Campus 2 - $299 - shipped Bustin Reflex Bamboo Big Surf - Pintal - $75 - shipped
Total - $375
3 O tang Wheels - free because i had them laying around, but i guess $50 bucks if i was purchasing. The meepo wheels it comes with are decent quality but Otangs just feel so nice. Riptide Bushings - $20 Paris Truck - $25
I’m so impressed with the outcome. My fat ass weighs 200 pounds and this single hub cruises around at 20mph and the pintail rides so nice and range
I plan on replacing the front meepo truck with a paris v2 and I’ve got riptide bushings on the way.
For $375-450, this thing is a great starter board for someone who’s looking to get into esk8 without dropping 2k.
Only downfall is it doesn’t like hills very much, but if you plan accordingly, it’s no big deal.
Ride safe all!!
