It’s interesting how things evolve. I break a lot of things, so my builds are constantly changing. Most of the time its just one part that gets swapped out for another, and the build stays mostly the same…
But having just completed a rebuild that ended up combining two boards into one, i’ve realised that I have only retained a single part from the original iteration of this build.
Here we are now… the only part that remains from the original build is the carbon fibre antisink plate at the front
Of course, this wouldn’t qualify as a Ship of Theseus if it jumped straight from the first to the last iteration, but there was much fuckery in between and so in my mind, it most certainly fits the bill.
I’m curious who else out there has similar builds that have drastically changed since their original iteration… show us ya ships!
I replaced every single component at least once (except the deck, which I will shortly too), some twice, motors thrice. Currently experimenting with rims, those are already like 6 genereations in. Will post pics when done.
Yeh rkp on the pool deck did not work at all. Maybe if I used very hard bushings it would have helped. The deck is currently not being used. I’m not sure whether to sell it or buy some wide tkp trucks and 58mm wheels on it. The Omakase is excellent. I love having the tail to acid off and mount small curbs, and get round tight bends. Every time I’m on it it puts a massive smile on my face as it takes me back to how I felt when skating about as a kid. However, I miss riding on my 97mm abec 11. The 85mm orangatang’s really feels all the stones on our shitty Scottish roads.
Next iteration is going to be adding 7" tires if I can and after that possibly switching over to rockstar 2 hubs and a 72t pulley to see if I can get some more torque out of the thing. 15:44 ratio on 190kv motors is a bit lacking in that department.
