Qu-Ax 27.5'' Muni?

I am searching for a 27.5" or 29" Muni. The Qu-ax is very cheap, but I'm not sure about the quality. Does anyone have a review? Thanks.

Qu-Ax is a quality brand, as well as Nimubus and Kris Holm are. They have some cheap beginner unis (as Nimbus has too) but even they're good quality. The QX models are their high end range and are as good as any other high end range unicycle. Absolutely great value for money. I have a 24" Muni built of Qu-Ax parts and a G27.5" Muni built of QX parts and I absolutely love them.
If you want the best value for money, take a QX. KH is not so much better but way more expensive.
The Qu-Ax Models are steel frames (if I remember right) and the QX ones are aluminium.

I have this unicycle since a month. I'm very content with the quality so far and definitely recommend it

I was thinking about buying the QX 27.5" plus, but I can't find any detailed measurements on it. Do you know how wide the frame is?

It comes with a WTB Bridger tire, which apparently is about 73mm wide, but other popular 27.5+ tires are wider than that - Trax Fatty 3.25 is ~86, Surly Knard and Kenda Havok are 79mm. KH said his 27.5+ frame was designed for up to 84mm.

Anyway, the only info I can find on the QX frame says it fits "27.5+", and the only tire I know fits for sure is the relatively small Bridger, so I would love more detailed info!

I don't think, the frame of the 27.5+ is wider than the one of the 27.5. I think it's just the tire and the rim that are different. But I don't know. Maybe they use the 29" frame for the 27.5+ which is what I did on my custom build with the Specialized Purgatory Control 27.5x3.0. With this tire I have about 5mm clearance on each side when I center the wheel in the frame. (and the height looks just perfect.)
My frame (the QX29) has an inner width of 82mm. I'm not sure is the frame of the QX27.5 is of the same width, but it definitely isn't less.

You can scroll this thread (transation via google) of the german forum. There we have some QX frames combined with different tire sizes of the 27.5 to 29+ range)

btw: the frame of the QX27.5 also fits a 29x2.2 wheel.

If you want to run wider than stock tires, I would contact a dealer which is selling Qu-Ax. They can simply measure the width/clearance for you. I only know German Uni shops, they always have been very helpful. I believe it is the same in other countries. Or just drop Qu-Ax a mail directly.

I did try to read the German thread before I posted, but it was pretty confusing...

However the Goudurix shop (in Montreal) got back to me right away: the QX 27.5+ frame width is 94mm. So the same as the KH frame.
