I’ll start: I’m a college student so I don’t have a ton of $ to spare. I think my spending would be in the net $500 - $1500 range since I got into the hobby.
Estimate your net spending since you got into the hobby (EX: so for example if you purchased parts for your DIY for $900 and then sold some parts you didn’t need for about $150, your net spending would be $750)
Your details aren’t public when you poll (at least that’s how I think I set it up).
Poll currency: US dollar (USD)
And now it has new wheels, new motor, new truck hangers, new bearings times two, new enclosure. So that vehicle has cost around 1210+110+90+17+17+25= $1469 to build and keep in service for one year. (1210 construction plus 259 yearly maintenance)
That vehicle is part of a fleet of 4 vehicles. Those 4 vehicles provide 99% of my transportation needs. Occasionally I will use one of those plus a commuter train, or an electric longboard instead. But most of the time it’s solely an electric shortboard.
