I'll Start :D

Review
This is My unicycle I started with a Cheap Unicycle from Amazon ( lol) and upgraded it as i started taking unicycling seriously To upgrade i got a new Frame which it the Nimbus II and a Sticky fingures tyre, a new seat and seat post. I am curently trying to find some new cranks and wheel. If you have any ideas on cranks and wheel please do let me know , Altogether i think It is an okay unicycle to start on .

Where i Got the parts :
I got Most of the parts from unicycle.com .

Cost
Altogether once i have brought some cranks and wheel it would cost me around £180 on average

Reconmendation
To be Honest i wouldn recomend doing what i have done :/

tinman, that thing looks awesome. Do you have any pictures of the bearing holders, they sound intriguing.

Why did you bend the rear "stays"? I would have thought they would have been stronger strait.

Any way great job. It is a truly unique uni!

the rear stays are bent because I liked the look, and yes they probably would be stronger straight but not that much

tinman, that's a pretty unique bearing holder setup you have there. You gonna give the frame a fresh lick of paint or leave it bear?

I'd be tempted to leave it bare but buff it all up and make it nice and shiny first

Koxx-One Devil Gold

I Bought it from
K-124house.com

I hate this site, but I think it is best way to buy Koxx-Ones. I sent 3 emails to them, but they didn't answer to me. Shipping from France to Finland took 2,5 weeks.

Price
250€ Koxx-one Devil Gold + 30€ Shipping

What's HOT
  • Looks cool
  • Perfect for trials

What's NOT
  • Is not compatible with Nimbus
  • Saddle could be more comfortable
  • -25C is too cold for tire

More pictures and videos
Rating
9,5 / 10
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

KH24 - bought in stages from unicycle.com in the UK. I had a learner unicycle with a KH fusion seat, cheap 25.4mm seat post and clamp so I bought the KH wheel, Moment cranks, pedals and a nimbus 24" Muni frame and put them together - cost £220. Then I bought a 27.2mm Pit Fighter II on Ebay brand new for £20. Finally I bought the KH24 frame and impact seat clamp so I could replace the nimbus frame and use the Pit Fighter seatpost.

Total cost £305.

Can't fault the KH24, the components are beautifully made and for a little over £300 it's a top quality Municycle for half the price of a budget mountainbike.

Thanks raymanh. You don't get a great deal of colour choice with KH. I loved the clear pedals with the blue anodised components but think they look a bit wishy washy now - I think the Uni would begreatly improved by bronze/gold Echo pedals.

Lets see your KH20 and review - I'm aiming to get a 20" trials uni next week and the KH20 double crown is topping my list so far.

Love these machines.
