I’m waiting for Andrew Penman to post his final video about it. That will be sometime next week (he says Monday, but we know things can slip).
In the meantime, I’ve come across another Onan Booster — the X2 — strapped to a Penny-sized board (a Ridge clone).
This one looks less like a Suicide Ride:
So what’s it like to ride a Penny-sized deck with an Onan Booster? Arne says in YouTube Comments:
Hey. I can’t give much updates sadly. I was in the US most of this summer and was also riding my boosted board (which I ordered long before the Onan) for most of the time. The boosted feels a little smoother but I can really say that a penny board is not a good deck for an electric board. It’s too small for high speeds to be comfortable. And as I had the boosted and no other deck for the booster the Onan hasn’t seen a lot of use lately… I might get another deck for it soon though.
Boldfaced emphasis added by me.
Argh. Portability versus comfort again! And I have to believe him and Casey Neistat because they’re experienced riders.
Even so, that Quinboards deck is a bit larger and might do better.
And yet, my research will continue until either money is in hand and I must decide or …
… the change of season sabotages me and it becomes too cold for batteries. Dammit.
