Ok so I have an awesome wife, her and my kids got me matrix III trucks for my birthday so I can stop screwing around with the old dinosaur spring trucks and eating street. Now I need motor mounts. So far I see for sale:
They are not adjustable at all. @Venom121212 i did reach out yesterday, they said with the m3 hangar profile they can’t do adjustability. I didn’t reply yet. But they gonna have to go back. This isn’t what i thought i was getting.
Yeah looks like not enough meat on the mount to make the round hole big enough, i went to their site and looked, the photo doesn’t change with the selection of apex and matrix change, I would be dissatisfied as well.
Unless I’m missing something, it looks like you have two mounting positions available with the miii motor mounts. It’s a bummer but probably ok for a lot of builds still. I’m assuming apex chose good mounting positions and most mtbs are going to have similar angles where they want the motors out back.
@Soflo neither of the two positions would work for your build?
Edit: I see what I missed in my pre coffee morning haze.
Obviously you can’t rotate the actual mount plate because it’s a square hole.
Nope fixed position, square hole aligned with square truck profile. Now radium also used a fixed angle, and I do also assume that most of the time that angle is acceptable. It is just about the same angle that my mounts were at on my old trucks, almost parallel to the angle of the deck mount angle. But if I was looking at the photo, assuming that I was purchasing adjustable mounts due to the photo indicating so, I wouldn’t be happy when something other then that arrived.
I get that but this is a small hobbyist community and vendors are usually passion projects more than money making endeavors. If it makes a difference to @Soflo ’s build I’m sure the guys at apex will take care of him. They are good folks.
My understanding is that the 22.5mm and off center axle design of the m3 hanger makes the required radius larger than most esk8 vendors had planned for. Unfortunately this means parts made for smaller hangers either don’t work at all or require these compromises to be compatible.
