My first board was a Trampa. Didn’t really like how flexy and flat it was. I also missed riding on thanes. Sold it pretty soon after and bought a street Bioboard.
I love to carve that thing. It’s exciting to say the least but it’s not very practical.
Now I want to try something new. I like how the Flux looks and I know it’s stiff. The fact that the enclosure can hold a big battery is a plus. A big minus is that Flux doesn’t answer emails and it seems a bit difficult to source the AT2 kit. Fortunately. @mackann had a brand new kit he offered me at a discount. Thanks buddy you’re the best!
I have been harassing some of our more prominent builders here like @Skyart. Thank you for your advice. You have been very helpful. And @rusins who not only shared his knowledge but also sold me many of the parts I needed/wanted for my project. Such as straight steel Moon drives 11:59 ratio, a brand new GO-FOC D75 and Lunas with zero and fifteen degree baseplates and a bunch of Riptide bushings. Thank you! @approachinglogic who isn’t MIA anymore hookede up with brand new Rockstar II, tubes and tires. Motors will be from @Boardnamics since I already have an order pending for M1 helical drive and 220 hangers for the street board.
Battery will be a 16s6p p42a built by @Seabjorn one of few who makes a living out of building batteries and eskates. He is also an awesome guy! Thank you!
He will also help me with the build since I dont have the time nor the qualifications to build it to my own very high expectations I want something that looks good, works good, rides good and packs a nice punch. Most of the stuff is in the mail. I’m pretty stoked right now.
Sounds like those guys harassed you into going for an unreasonably large battery voltage for the build
Also meanwhile I’m over here so closed to finished with my build and haven’t bothered to make a build thread yet No shade though, I just want to wait until the first stage is done before putting one together and I am also VERY skilled at putting stuff off.
Getting a bunch of extra bushings from other people on here is also very helpful since otherwise you might not want to buy more just to find out they don’t work for you. I too received a bag full of them and really need to try and look up the durometer of them all since right now I am choosing which ones to use based on what color looks best my surfadapter does most of the carving work anyway so they don’t matter as much on my trucks
