I keep ruling out the Onan.
But then I saw a video.
Of course, first are the obligatory screensnaps.
Just look at that:
A small deck:
That’s wide and despite being compact still long enough for the Mellow Boards install — and the Onan Booster too:
And it can be stuffed in a backpack:
This seems like bliss.
Swappable battery on a compact board with more foot room than a Penny yet still easy to carry.
The specific deck in the video is the Micro-Me, from Quinboards in Germany:
Achtung! That price! That’s about US$135 at post time. Still, a good deck can last forever and can be reinstalled on other future things too.
But there are no American dealers. I wonder if there’s an American company with a deck that size? I must do research.
As far as the Onan Booster goes, it’s available from a U.S. supplier: Griffin Boards. But shipping times from them seem a bit sketchy: 15-30 days? Sounds like they take an order then send it to Onan in China, wait for China, receive it, and then reship it domestically. Hmph.
Anyway, until I have money in hand, I will keep all options still open. This is an interesting one. It’s the first time I’ve seen a small deck with a Mellow/Onan that didn’t look awkward or look like a Suicide Ride, like this one:
Now the video:
