So I am still working out a few details, as I order stuff I thought I’d add it to my build here.
I’m in southern central Australia, on a island off of the southern coast. South from me is Antarctica. This build will be a bit of a project for me, a journey as well as a out come. I skated more as a teenager than now but I still ride my long board down the esplanade to work each day:) I’ve ridden bikes for a few years, from moto to supersport and back to supermotard… the only bike I regret selling was my Husaberg FS650 tard… and in that vein the esk8 bug has bitten and I want a eMTB. I want something I can play build and destroy myself… as I said it is a journey as well as a outcome for me.
As far as specs go I’m going to try and over engineer stuff, make it bullet proof best I can. It will be a learning experience. My thought is I want something I can ride like a motard, wheelie, skid, stoppie, maybe even back it in? So I’m going to pass on a VESC and go for a light switch with torque to spare. Watching Jens blow stuff up gunning the trigger I figure I should work in some head room and cover peak with my continuous?
so here goes
I’ll post up some pics of my ESC’s and motors…
