my Summit uni has arrived.
i havent been able to ride it much since its hot as Hades (97F) and i woke up totaly hung-over today.the Summit made me do it.
so get my box and like one before the crank arm has busted though the side and been doing crank grabs for about a thousand miles.there was also a couple of chips in the orange paint,nothing worth a phone call but somone else might think so.
anyway i opened the box and did what i always do to new unicycles,I took it completely apart.everything was dry,like i figuered.there wasnt a trace of grease on any thread or medal on medal connection,i wasnt suprised.things from Taiwan are usally like this.
i was in my garage for about 3 hours listening to my Rod Stewert anthology,slamming beers and putting the Summit back together.every surface has its just reward of grease now.it was fun getting to play with a KH hub and cranks after reading about them,but not owning one yet.the cranx slide on and off like butter.so easy in fact that instead of rotating the tire for even ware,i’ll just rotate the cranx on the splines.
the KH seat that it came with (i asked for grey) seems stiffer than some others,it could just be that its new or maybe its got the plate in it like the newer ones are coming with now.
over all this is a great uni for the price,and a great uni just to have around for thrashing on from time to time.its hard to belive that i paid over $900 for a KH20 Pro model just last year,other than a few tooth paste looking welds and a few ounces in weight the Summit is very much the same uni.no Profile stuff to oggle over though.
