ok, ive gotten to the point on my torker LX 24 in. where i can free mount and ride forever, i can hop when riding and stall in place. i can also hop up onto things up to about 10 inches high but its hard with a 24 in. wheel. i can also ride of curbs but am afraid of goin off any higher of drops with the LX . I weigh about 155-165 lbs. and need advice about a good trials that can go off drops of about 3-4 feet, go down stairs, and you know really take a beating? please give some suggestions. They will be apreciated:D !
It depends really. But if maintenced properly and if you rollout on most drops…with your weight it will last very long. I have had a dx for a long time now and done many many drops with no rollout and haven’t took good care of it and there is no sign of wear on my hub. It doesn’t creek or anything. I weigh the same as you also.
well, i know enough about unis that you deffinately dont get the nimbus if your planning on doing 5 foot drops. It doesnt have a slpined hub and cant handle that unless you weigh like 40 lbs. but idk about the DX, one of my friends who weighs like 140 lbs has had one for a year and it is in great shape with nothing bent. i say go for that if you cant afford the KH. but im savin up for the KH and plan to get it in the next 2 weeks
how did you kill your CX?
my friend has been riding his around purely because it is light and taking it off of 3-4ft drops repeatedly and doing 7-8ft gaps on it… that wheelbuild is insanely strong for cotterless… stronger than his LX by far
back on subject, if you can afford the nimbus trials w/ profile cranks GET IT!
you cannot break it… ever… no matter what…(not that people havn’t …but you won’t) otherwise, the koxx and KH’s are awesome
koxx is slightly heavier and weaker though
I love my Nimbus trials, if I had to buy my uni again I would probably still get… its not too expensive, and is pretty strong… but that is for me because I weigh just about nothing… if you have the money, either get the KH or the nimbus trials with profile cranks.
