I am looking to get a mini board to take when I don’t feel like dragging around my big board.
Do you guys have any recommendations?
Budget doesn’t matter much as long as it feels worth it but I don’t think I want belt motors on my mini board since I don’t wanna have to drag belts around with me.
I’ve been looking at Meepo Mini 2s ER with 105mm wheels and Ecomobl Mini.
The new 2S is much less stupid than the old meepo hubs! The older meepo motors have magnets in the sleeves so sleeves are expensive and also third parties like cloudwheel don’t make sleeves for that weird mounting. The new ones however have switched to a much more normal setup, and while there aren’t genuine cloudwheels yet meepo do make their own cloudy sleeves. The 2S is also the newer ESC
the new motor design is better than the old one, but probably still isn’t the best. the torque rely on the screws to transfer the energy as the sleeve don’t seem to slide on any slot for more secure mounting, which isn’t ideal
oh yeah I forgot bustin, this seems decent but again not a huge amount of range. Meepo also seem to have quietly switched away from P42A packs to 40T, still not bad and better than 10S2P 18650 cells but not as good. Bustin have a sale on the new black ones, 20% off atm, they seem to be really good skate hardware and feel rather than the most unique cutting edge electronics
they have (and I presume probably still do for the hurricane) but they’ve been all over the place, even on new launches like the V4S and Mini 2S they’re claiming 288Whr instead of 302.4. I think they’ve run out of supply or gotten a really cheap deal on 40T, I have half a memory of an apology or clarification to that effect but I can’t find it anywhere
Nope, Tayto is like $1300 with shipping to Sweden and I don’t think I want to have belts for my mini board. I have belts on my large one but don’t want to have to carry belts with me all the time for my mini board.
