Hi! I’m a new member. Was looking into getting a Boosted Board, but thought they were kinda expensive. Was really on the fence about purchasing one. Then as I was looking on videos, I saw someone do a DIY Electric Skateboard for around 500$. I don’t expect mine to necessarily be that cheap. Got me more interested and they had a link to this website. Building a customize board sounds a lot more fun and personal to me. So I think i might want to give it a shot. Here’s a little about myself.
From Michigan,USA. I’m about 5’7 and 190 lbs. I am looking to build a board mainly for transportation from home to work. I live in small town and just under 5 miles is my commute. my commute is all thru the city and would be on Bike bath, non-busy roads and with a little sidewalk.
I have looked around the website a bit the past few days, and understand the basics of building a board. I guess I’m more curious about the specifics of what I should get to build it. Or just have someone point me in the right direction to get started.
GOALS Be able to travel 15-20 Miles on a charge. At least 20mph Top Speed. Don’t need to go faster then 25 mph I would think. Have a stable/ safe ride. I’m more concern about getting to point A and B rather how fast it gets me there.
