Hello. I’m new to esk8 but not to skateboarding itself. I’m planning to build a campus cruiser to go around <20mph. I live in socal but I attend school in the flat cornlands of illinois so hills are that huge of an issue. I currently have a bustin bonsai that is lying around that I think is a good size to carry around (and bring on the plane). I have my parts planned out but most of them aren’t ordered so any input is helpful. Just note that my wallet isn’t infinite So here we go!
Board: bonsai 29" length with 16.5" wheel base - BOUGHT Motor: 190kv 6374 motor for TB
Mount: TB 63mm motor mount EDIT: Will buy from buildkitboards instead. I am considering buying a mount kit from marcmt88 but I dont think I’ll benefit with an idler pulley
Pulley Kit: 36T 14T kegel pulley kit ***Very unsure about this. Is this a good ratio? I’m not looking for speed
VESC : also from TB
Wheels: 80mm kegel
Battery: 12s2p standalone from miamielectric Edit: was told about a disconnection issue. Will look into. Also I have a spot welder somewhere on campus that I can use so I can probably make my own.
BMS: also from miamielectric
Remote: Probably a mini from TB will replace with a DIY when i get back to campus where my 3d printer is collecting dust EDIT: going with diykitboards here too
Enclosure: 12" coupe from pyschotiller. Huge shoutout to him for going out to find a spare enclosure lying around that was no longer listed on his website.
Will update the thread with pictures once they start coming in. Stay tuned!
