Nope. Just lucky to have a tenacious Norco dealer nearby.

But I did put down a deposit on two of them at my LBS last spring, after talking to Kris. The store, longtime Norco dealer and good friend, checked with Norco and got the OK to take the order. When Kris mentioned that Unicycle.com may be the only source, I asked the store to re-check with Norco. They responded that the order would stand.

In the end, Norco only shipped one. I'll have to go to Unicycle.com to get the other one.

As for breaking it - I'm just waiting for the weekend! It will get a good workout then; perhaps I'll have more to report. But I expect Kris Holm has broken a few of these during the prototype phase!
fair enough, i guess i was missinformed and guilty of spreading insubstanciated rumors

i'll plead guilty at the unicycle trials.

or maybee i can use the defence that my informat may have meant the pinch bolt cranks, which sort of have a split bit in the end.

Have you done any big drops with it yet? How high do you think it'll be able to drop from without any bending or general damage?

Thanks,
Andrew

Haven't done anything bigger than off the porch, picnic table, etc. Unfortunately, work has overtaken my life, these last 2 weeks. And it gets dark here before I get home, now, so evening rides on the trails are out.

But the chromoly frame, 32-spoke wheel, and heavy-duty bearings in proper mounts make me think that it will be hard to bend. Time will tell, of course. For the money, it's an excellent deal, in my opinion.

It's common on XC mtb's. It's more compatible |)maybe?(| with more rims.

No, I'm not sure! I better go count them... 1, 2, 3... oh wait, there's 36 spokes.

I just assumed 32 because they're DX32's. Sorry about that.

The 32 in the DX32 name refers to the width of the rim. The rim is 32mm wide (inside width where the tire sits). Other Alex rims also use the number in the name of the rim to refer to the width of the rim but they are inconsistent in that naming practice.
