well i’m sorta on a budget and i wanna build a muni i think i have my parts picked out but need to know if they are compatable and what not.
frame: Yuni black 26"
Hub: Suzu 36 hole
Rim: Alex dx32 26" is this a 36hole rim?
Tire: Intense DH 26x2.6"
cranks: Lasco 170mm will be upgraded later when i need them
saddle: kris holm black
and of course black spokes
will all this work together?
also what size seat post would i need to go with the yuni frame?
thanks for your help.

I can’t help you with the rest of it but I do know that the Alex DX-32 26" is a 36 hole rim. Are you getting the yellow or the black one? Is there a silver one?
Lasco cranks are notoriously bad for bending and breaking. I wouldn’t put them on your MUni in the first place - you’ll probably bend them within a week. Save yourself some money and buy better cranks to start with. I highly recommend Kooka 170mm cranks. I think Odyssey Black Widows and Shimano cranks are good too.
I’m getting the black rim and i know the lasco’s arent any good really mostly i’m getting them so i can ride it sooner then will up grade as soon as i can. better to have cheap cranks then none at all. this is a uni not an impossible wheel after all.

You’d be better off with these
Than the lascos, sure they’re a bit heavier but you probably won’t notice - and you won’t break them.

Bicycle Euro cranks are not expensive, hold up better than Lascos and
are available in 170 mm.
All porcupines float in water.
thanks for the tip on the bicycle euro’s i hadnt seen them.
