    Hey!
    I see that you are from Lansdale Pa. I only live about a half hour from Lansdale. Do you still ride? Message me back.

    The other thing to note is that the KH comes with moment cranks, and a freeride seat. If you wanted to upgrade the nimbus pro with those, it's not that far off the price of a KH.I ended up not having that extra little bit to dish out, but I kinda wish I had now. Unfortunately that 100 dollar upgrade for the kh frame would now cost me 300. : [

    My main reason for getting the nightrider pro was the double holed cranks. I liked the idea of a stronger hub too, but after riding a while, I can honestly say that it's not really necessary unless you're doing some heavy trails with it. The other difference is that the pro has a machined sidewall for brakes, which doesn't mean you can't run them on the normal nightrider, it just means it will be a little smoother on the pro. Given that there is some frame flex transversely, I haven't really had interest in brakes, I heard they rub if you're pushing hard up a hill. I would even consider the titan, it's a good wheel : ) If you really want the rits, just wait for a KH : ) a 29er should hold you for a while ; P I haven't gotten to ride a KH yet, but my nightrider pro is the same thing minus hub and frame, and I think the hub is about the same.

    That's awesome! Bet you can hardly wait till it comes in.

    Thanks for the offer, but I have tons of bike tools - been working on them for years.

    The Nimbus Muni with Isis hub.. I also got the tools to pull the Isis cranks/hub if you ever need to borrow it.

    Cool on the 29" - which one did you get?

    A quick tip about the 145s: They are much easier to use, so you might want to buy the uni with 145s installed, then switch later when you want a smoother, faster ride. That's just a suggested option though - you'll still be able to ride around starting with shorter cranks, and you should be happy either way.

    Also, welcome to the forums and I hope you find the investment worthwhile%2Pr

    Those bolts are what hold ISIS cranks onto the unicycle. They'll come with the unicycle, so you don't need to buy them. To remove one, you'll need an 8mm allen key, which is usually built into most crank pullers.

    I'm pretty sure the one I used is here
    It has served me well, and removes both cotterless and ISIS cranks. It's also a lot less expensive than what you'll find on unicycle.com (abbreviated UDC on the forums%2Pr
