First time building an electric skateboard so I was looking for some advice. I’m not a skateboarder so please excuse me if this is novice stuff.
I’ve got myself a deck at a bargain price of just £35 (db Freeride DT 38). The deck is stiff which I think I’m going to prefer but it makes for a good building platform. If I find I don’t like the deck I’ll change it as it’s not a massive expense to loose!
My question, for today, is relating to trucks and wheels. I plan to fit 1 motor (6355) onto this build with the potential of upgrading it to 2 motors in the future. With that in mind I want trucks to be compatible with 2 motors and not just the 1. I also want to fit something like the Abec 11 or Orangatang wheels. I really like the 107mm Flywheels.
What trucks will I need to suit this kind of setup? I’m curious of the width I would need. I would like UK based parts as that’s where I’m from. Honestly, I’m stuck for options!
Anyone who’s been in my place and have come through the otherside - please help
