- What’s the biggest tire (2.25" upwards) that fits 16" rims?
- What rim would I need for such a tire ; what are the widest rims available in 16"?
- what are the shortest cranks that fit profile/kh/koxx hubs?
you can look at these:
Although the Alex x rim is available in 16" it’s a road rim so that might not be too crash hot for trials.
That tyre is 2.125 which is close
thats all i had time for, probably isnt a help but there it is.
what do you want a 16" trials unicycle for, 20" is much mroe standard and would be better i think.
Evan tried that a while ago, maybe he can help. That was back when he was “total_uni”
I think finding short enough cranks was the problem with the idea + it would be very slow.
I think the rim would be the hardest thing to find. For the cranks i suggest koxx isis 110m cranks. You would probly find some kind of wheel barrow tire.
What would the benefit of having a 16" trials unicycle be?
Ironicly, I use a 24" for trials now.
Why not LONGEST(functional) cranks?
I have learned on 16" and it is the one which I have tried to modify(in my ignorance)
The biggest fun I had with 11,5 cm cranks.
Those cranks deliver relatively smooth performance and still allow for turning.
Why don’t get a poga stick?
Or doing trials without your unicycle? you will be able to jump MUCH higher!
to clear things up: i’ve got a little sister
That certainly turned things around.
You’d have no need for a splined hub for a little sister, just go with regular cranks and a wide-ish rim for trials.
Yes, use a normal 16" wheelset and a tyre like the jumping Jack from Schwalbe . It should work fine upt to 30 or 40 kg.
Its also much more easy to handle for a litle child than a 16" Trial.
A 20" Quax muni with a maxxis for example bounces my daughter and not she the muni Now she use a normal 20" Rim and a Jumping Jack (20x2,1) and it works fine to start.
