Having too much fun?

That is up to 75.71 MPG!

How much does it weigh? I do not know how much weight you can reduce from a skateboard, although I would be interested in some PSI versus MPG data.

Maybe 35-40 pounds. The real weight problem is me but 200 or less is not bad for close to 65 and just over 6 feet, size 13 shoes and ring finger at 12.

I was actually considering conversion to electric, unless it still runs great. I'd be surprised if it climbs the hills in my neighborhood.

Tires max at 65 psi, just stand on one to check the inflation, virtually no wear on the tires on it.

It can climb the hills just fine. It just couldn't do it with a couple hundred extra pounds...

It would be neat with a 50cc Honda 4 stroke, but I like electric. 20 miles with batteries would be nice and it would coast better.
