i’m savin gup for a UDC Max Traction - 24 x 3" here’s the descip on it:
With more happening in trials and radical jumping we at Unicycle.com have assembled one of the most popular requested specials. This machine should quench many people’s thirst for a durable off-road machine capable of taking a real hammering. The large balloon tyre really helps the Max Traction travel over what you might have considered previously to be impossible ground. (Picture shows with Miyata seat and aluminium cranks upgrades)
Halo Identitti Contra 3.0 Tyre, White/Black Halo Combat Rim, 36 Hole Susue Hub, 14 Gauge stainless steel spokes, 150mm Bicycle Euro Cranks, DX style pedals, Nimbus 28" frame or the new Nimbus II frame in either 24" (for minimal mud clearance) or 28" (for better mud clearance), Double seat clamp. Viscount saddle.
£210.00 (with some extras kris holm seat etc)
i’m not experienced so i need good advice does it sound good?
Klaas Bil and myself both acquired one of these about a year ago. I think it’s a great unicycle; faster than a 20" and the 3" tyre is brilliant. If I were after a muni now it’s very probably what I’d be looking at.
I have the 24" Nimbus II frame; I think it looks nicer than the round Nimbus frame, and it has plenty of mud clearance for everything but the quagmirest of quagmires.
i have a max traction, basically the same as what you are looking at, but with different pedals and a different clamp. It’s great, handles everything its been given, and is very strong, my friend has one, and his hub is a bit twisted we think, but this is after repeptive 5 foot drops, and the odd 6foot drop. Here’s A pic of mine, i think the only differences are the pedals and the clamp anyway.
To answer black against white… if you want a braking surface you have to
have white, black is not available at 24" with one.
Coloured frame… Lime green! some people (Chris - I will confirm on
Monday)… yes we will do it in any colour the powder coater will get. He
does a lovely fluorescent yellow I know as he has done this for me in the
And Joe! telling everyone the secret of what UDC stands for… well.
Ewan, I have a lovely mat black 24" Nimbus II frame with Magura brakes on it
in stock waiting for a call from you.
Splined hub… yes we will do the max traction with a splined hub if you
would like. We have the Kris Holm hub in stock at 170mm long.
Slightly OT but I have to share this. I just ordered a UDC 24x3 this morning. This evening I was in the back garden waiting for the barbeque to warm up, so I thought I would noodle around on the uni. I was doing some fairly tame hopping (only kind I know how to do), and I managed to tweak the rim.
So, was I subconsciously trying to justify the need for a stronger wheel (I even went for 48 spokes)? Or is my pashley possessed?
Argh, now I’m uniless until I get this fixed … maybe I should get a 700c rim, but I just found a 26x2.2 city tire I really like …
thanx i’m getting 24" Nimbus II frame coz i’m only 5ft 3" and i don’t want a massive wheel i can’t wait 2 get it but i won’t be able 2 get it 4 4 or 5 months coz i have 2 save up all my money
wish money did grow on trees…
