So I’ve been sleuthing around (maybe stalking a few a you…) becoming more and more obsessed over the last 2 years and finally taking the plunge.
I’m based in the UK and we definitely need a revolution over here - so hard to source everything. This board will mainly be a commuter board, needs to do 20miles and be loving hills (based in Bristol, we have many of those). Right anyway here’s the list I’ve come up with, what do you guys think?
Board: Loaded Vanguard Flex 4 (I weigh 52kg and I’ve had this board for a few months, love it)
Wheels: Orangatang Caguama 85mm (80a)
Trucks: heXL TKP
Battery: 10s4p Samsung 30Q (18650/3000mAh/20A)
Motor Mount: TKP mount set from Psychotiller
Wheel Pullery: 32T 15mm
Motor Pulley: 15T 12mm
VESC: Either Enertion FOCBOX or FlipSky Dual FSESC 4.2 Plus
Motor: Either 6355 190KV or 6374 190KV
Remote: Thinking either printing my own or going for the FlipSky 2.4G Nano
Enclosure: Thinking of making my own by either we laying carbon fibre or using pre-preg (would love a to vacuum bag but I think I’m already giving my boyfriend a heart attack…)
Battery capacity monitor
Spot welder + nickel strips and everything that goes into building a battery pack (fire extinguisher?)
It’s kind of catch 22 I’m finding might just have to have two boards - one for my standard commute and one for when I really want those 20 odd miles. Not looking like I’m going to get a perfect middle match?
