Hello. For this build I was looking for something small and easy to carry. My inspiration came from @Adam0311 build “bad idea.” I originally wanted freeboard bindings, but the foot space was to small for the board I chose.
Most of the parts i used I had just laying around from previous builds. For the board I went with a Rayne OG mini which is 23.5 inches long which is easy to carry. I used my favorite trucks, Ronin’s that I chopped down to 150mm to better suit the deck. For electronics I went with Hobbywing max 6 and lipos. This ESC has surprising amount of torque. It pushes me around just fine and can even go up decent sized hills. My only complaint is the noise but sometimes it works out because people know to get out the way. The battery is 8s 5000 mah lipo that packs a punch and has decent range.
The ESC and lipos are tall so I made cutouts for them and made a fiberglass top that is laminated onto the deck.
I routed the wires for the motor also similar to LHB style and have wires going through the Ronin trucks.
The top piece fiberglass I made before the cutouts so I can keep the original shape. I added Landyachtz foam grip on top of that to get a little more vibration dampening. For the motor mount I used the @whitepony method to epoxy a stainless steel pipe to the truck that gave me best alignment.
The weight of this board is about 12lbs. The top speed is around 22-25mph depending on wheels and gearing. The range is about 8-11 miles. This board is better suited for short trips but Ive traveled to my brothers house which is 11 miles round trip.
I’m using the 15mm belts and I experience no belt slip. The motor pulley is 15t and wheel pulley is 40t. I’m able to easily switch between abec 11 90mm flywheels, 97mm flywheels, and also 100mm MBS all terrain wheels. Kegels are okay but ride is a little rough. I have 15/40 pulleys which you can find here
This board is fun to ride. It’s a little sketchy at times because of its size. It’s really easy to carry which was my main goal. It’s not meant for long trips it’s more of a “last mile” eboard. Thanks for looking
