I’m looking to get a 20" trials uni at the end of this summer, and the KH seems like an attractive choice. The only problem I have with it is it seems to not have room for a tire bigger than the stock 2.5". Is this true? Is it even worth putting a 3" tire on a trials uni, or does the extra weight negate the added bounciness?
Are there any other solid trials unis I should be considering (under $500, cheaper is better)?
I dont think there are many 20x3 tires out there. Maybe just the stingray? There certainly arent any specifically for trials.
I prefer my 24x3 muni for trials and street over my trials. I prefer it because of the faster ride which is a result of wheel diameter and not tire thickness. A 20x2.5 is plenty bouncy.
The new KHs are just about the best trials rigs you can get before you start getting into custom unis. If youre shooting for the under $500 mark, the Kh is a very good choice.
I think I saw a 3.0 tire specificly designed for trials somewhere on this forum. But you guys thought it wouldn´t be any good beacuse of the extra weight.
I stand corrected. Anyone got any more info on this?
I don’t know about a 3" trials tire, but a while ago there was a thread about new 2.7" tire here
I think the 2.7" tire would fit fine on my '04 KH, but I don’t know about the '05.
If you get the KH, you will not regret it (unless you are really weird or something), it is an awsome unicycle.
you really don’t need anything bigger than a 2.5… with the posssible extra bounce you get, it cancils it out with the extra weight. And most importantly, if you run you psi low, a wider tire on a dx32 just means easier folding.
must have been the 2.7 tire I was thinking about…
We can all speculate but no ones gonna know until someone tries it.
I really don’t see the point, the 2.5" creepy crawler is pogo-stick enough!
i have one… but i cant try it… i killed the hub from the uni after 5 minutes of riding (it was a non splined hub)
