went for a skate with my mate yesterday. heres video
Still rocking the ezrun in this video. I do not miss those brakes!
Gotta love the acceleration with the ezrun though! And @ 6s too!
I think I was using an 8s lifepo4 pack charged to 28v. The ezrun will definitely be a contender when racing starts to take shape.
This is a short version of a snow ride.
This is awesome man. What part of NYC are you from? I grew up in Queens (Far Rock, Astoria, Woodside) but recently moved to Ann Arbor in July. How’s the ESK8 scene out there? Other than Casey Neistat riding the Boosted in Manhattan are there many others?
Hi I’m from the Bx.
The eSk8 scene around my area not do active, I hope that will change in the near future.
I know some guys have been getting boosted but not that I have encounter any eSk8r. I Think they just use them to commute not for joy riding.
I like more the joy rides to unwind, don’t like to mingle with the city traffic.
I read your eSk8 piece on your site, nice work man, that is a great perspective on the satisfaction and impact of building something with you own hands to satisfaction.
Oh cool yeah I thought I recognized some of those spots in the BX. I took some classes at Manhattan College and my sister lives out in Riverdale so I’m familiar with that area and parts of Inwood. Yeah I figured the mountain board would be tough to maneuver around the city and it looks like a blast for unwinding. I have a lot of purist skater friends that I grew up with in NYC and they kinda shake their heads when they see me posting about ESK8. The skaters out here seem a little more willing to try it.
I think I ran across your build article either here on ES. Would you mind sending that to me, I’m kind of intrigued with potentially building a mountain board which would definitely work here in Michigan.
This is my post
ill be posting some pictures of the motor mount shortly
Dang! after I finish my first build, your board is definitely a goal for my next one!
This is me on Richard’s awesome HyperEV from aliendrivesystems.com I had superduper bad luck with a small patch of water (ESC heaven) so i’m gonna reverse engineer it and make it more… puddle proof.
Note this is with full protection and leather jacket.
Here’s a video I shot today for my blog, testing out the Carvon Single Hub + Enertion Space Cell in a college parking lot. Full article here.
What phone app is that to measure speed?
It’s called Speed Tracker. I like the minimal design and ease of use. I prefer it over Strava actually.
Richard . awesome video .
if i were you , I’d try racing with the train . also near end of video . you were walking , not skating , why worry ?
undercover cops . no indication whatsoever from outside of car to tell public they are police . very tactical these cops .
