Got me a blacktip

Post by Norris » Fri Jan 24, 2020 3:29 pm

So yeah I have been scootering a gavin short body for a couple years now. After seeing the price of the new black tip I was intrigued. Only 1500 or so, and then factor in some bat trees. I went with the 12ah Dewault x2. (199 a piece).

Let me say, it is a great scooter. 8 speeds and even has a display showing battery power left, and gear you are in. I dived it Wed at T-dock and it was flawless and fast. I had no problem keeping up with my buddy on a sierra. The only issue I have is the trim, but considering the price, that is a non-issue. (nose points up)

So this thing is under 30 pounds, uses two power tool bat trees, and is quick. Liking it so far and would be happy to answer any questions.

Well I can't say that was my inspiration, but I am liking it just fine.

Still tweaking some weighting and adding snaps.
