Hey guys, hope everyone’s been doing well, been busy and just unicycling as usual. I just want to check up with you guys about this before I put more serious thoughts into it. You guys know your stuff around unicycles much more than I do so helpful feedback / thoughts on the matter would be appreciated.
I’m having thoughts on getting a 19" Nimbus Equinox long neck trials/street unicycle, there’s a sale on it right now and if things work out with the shipping (need to find a way to escape the brokerage fee), I might get it. I figured I should since I’m starting to get pretty obsessed with hops and drops and think about doing some tricks. I have a 26" oracle and love it but of course doing tricks on it is harder due to the weight among other stuff.
So I have a 26er and a 36er so I figured the last gap that I’d like to fill is a 20".
I googled and asked around a bit, like about the difference of the KH 20" and the Equinox and I heard they can both handle similar drops. I plan to try to do around 5 ft drops, if I ever get the courage for it that is . After some asking, I heard that the only real difference between the two that separates them in price is the brand name, the cranks, I see some other stuff but not sure the significance in them. I was also told that the KH hub comes in multiple pieces and creaks over time which I don’t like, it’s something I’ve read here too.
The Equinox is a tad bit lighter, which I think is partially due to the tire and crank.
I was worried about the long neck since my inseam is only 31", but I found out I can get it to 29". Just when I was interested in the Equinox, I find that it’s on sale! Got to be destiny
