Yeah

depending on your weight, that will do fine. The most bombproof unicycles are the Quax 1400, Nimbus trials, and the torker dx. For weight Freaxs, the one you mentioned, KH, or a street uni.

You aren't making much sense, or putting in much information.

The Kris Holm unicycle is one of the strongest out there, even if it isn't indestructible. It has a very strong frame, and strong hub and cranks (even if the hub flanges are prone to bending a bit). The rim is drilled so isn't exceptionally strong, but it is nice and wide.

The qu_ax and nimbus are also similarly strong, but heavier and have skinnier rims.

The dx has a pretty weak, bulky frame, skinny although strong rim, and heavy, strong hub and cranks.


The main thing to remember, is that just because one unicycle might be stronger than another, it doesn't mean that the other ones aren't still strong.
Almost every splined uni out there is pretty solidly built, so the main differences are how they ride, look, and weight.

I hope that helps a little.
Miles


edit: So yeah, it really depends on how much you want to spend for the weight, the look, and the individual parts.



also, please learn to spell and punctuate

Do the newer Qu-ax cranks still have the nubs that shread your ankles everytime you go to ride them?

The Quax Crossfire is awesome..the only especially weak thing is the cranks...but you wont bend them for a while and when you do you just get moments or something.

I used to have it...it was very solid...

to clarify what i said, the quax trials 1400 is the model up front 1500. ive seen them run over by cars with only broken spokes . with that theres like a zero chance youll break it. also it has really nice cranks. they wont bbreak on you.
