I hope to try it some day but I feel like I need a street build first since an offroad would be cumbersome to communte with… looks like a blast wish I could try it out, would love to blast by people riding off paved paths like a mad man

sad thing is the amount of power they take and how much more expensive

I hate that we have to trade form for function when we bottom mount batteries with a trampa board or any mtb. I really wish someone would work on a perfect solution.

the only reason I would ‘rebuild’ is if i were to get a kaly deck. I dont think ill ever want to change my setup, as its (imo) only the best

Urban treads + trampa rims ( this is also subject to change, i might go all the way up to 8 inch)

12s7p 30q

Unity

Etoxx 1:4 Helacial

Maytech surf remote

Urban carve trampa

maytech 170 6374 sealed

like, i dont even know what I would want to upgrade on that board to make it ‘better’

maybe suspension if I dont end up liking it?

The hub cruiser… thats a different story x)

man it totally sucks, I hate flying past trees in beautiful forests without needing to worry about being hit by a car and I really miss the pollution from all the car engines too :wink:

I started off with street wheels and didn’t think I would be bothered about off-road, now I am totally addicted to hitting the dirt trails near me.

took this a few days ago during a sunny spell between the horrible rain we’ve had the last week or so muddy

You don’t have a top mount battery, how do you handle the water ingress and everything like that

if you make sure the enclosure is sealed properly it’s not an issue. That said I won’t go full speed into a deep puddle as that is just asking for trouble
