I’m planning to make my first diy eskate over the winter and could use some help.
This is what I have planned so far:
-Zenit Marble 38 v3 deck -12s5p battery made by Z Battery Solutions - custom double stack enclosure by Big Ben -Xenith vesc -2 Flipsky 6374 190KV motors (I was at first considering using Lacroix 6374 motors but decided against it due to price(any other good motor suggestions?)) - Boardnamics’ BN220 Adjustable Angle Precision Trucks + Idler Motor Mount Kit -Boa Constrictor 100mm wheels…
Still not sure what exact pulley and belt sizes I’ll need. And still researching remotes… What else am I missing?
I live in Seatlle WA area where it’s super hilly and I’m wanting to use it for 15 to 25+ mile commutes. I’ll be riding mostly on paved bike trails and on the street so I’d prefer to use street wheels. I found a couple threads in the forum regarding making a diy with this Marble deck so I’m curious what the final product looked for people.
With the 100mm wheels do you think clearance will be an issue with the DS enclosure and will I be safe from wheel bite?
I’ll be posting updates as I start building. Appreciate all feedback, comments, and suggestions! Thanks y’all
