hey - a quick update - happy easter folks. Great to see a lot of interest ! I’m gonna launch the final prototypes today. So I expect to have them in maximum 10 days. One I got the final parts, I will take photos and make a group buy as we did for the SMART SERIES, in quality, time, cost. Just simple, I could do a group buy now with the prototypes but if there’s one thing I hate in the DIY scene is people that overcommit and then give unbalanced promises … and it’s starting to be the normality to give money to companies (even hobbyist ones) and have the end user wait forever ever and always for good reasons. I always say what I have to say, and not what most of the people want to hear; which make a big difference. Of course, the first option would be easier for me, as I would be using the customer funds to make my business; but I will never go this route.
@Jebe : The Trampa motors mounts are for Trampa spring trucks (Infinity, Vertigo, Ultimate). The pulleys will work for for Trampa superstar hubs (this also apply to the CORE pulley). The MBS mounts are for Matrix MBS II trucks (covers MBS 2 PRO trucks too as this is the same hanger)
The 35° risers are different for Matrix and Trampa Trucks (baseplate is different), so I’m going to pay > 300 euros just to validate that the MBS riser is perfect before going to “mass production”.
In any case, with the stuff; everyone will be able to choose to go the Mountainboard way on a Trampa or MBS deck… or use risers to put Mountainboard trucks on his longboard. Lots of options and portability here and there.
