After buying two sets of ill-designed hubs I decided to put together a belt drive board while I wait for my Carvons and Hummies hubs to arrive.
I prefer short boards since that’s what I’ve ridden my whole life, and need to quickly maneuver around imminent death on a daily basis living in NYC. Light weight and maneuverability were priorities, so, this is what I put together.
Hi5ber Ion-34 deck. Love the shape of this board. Agile and easily kick-turned, yet stable at speed https://www.hi5ber.com/ion34
Trucks - Caliber 2 (92 duro barrel bushings) Wheels - 90mm flywheels Bearings - Bones Red Ceramics Enclosure - @MasterCho 8x13" Carbon fiber enclosure Motor - Build Kit Boards 190kv 6374 (16/36 gearing) Motor Mount - Torque Boards Battery - Miami Electric Boards 12s2p Remote - Mini 2.4ghz FOCbox
Overall I’m happy with build. It’s fun to ride, can go more than fast enough (32 mph according to gps app), and is pretty light (13.6lb). Need to replace the LCD screen which I managed to break while installing.
