I am about to buy another uni (maybe).what all should i look out for?the person i talking to said it was bought over sea’s and put together in the US.And said it has never been used.if anyone can help thanks.
Get a trials uni from www.unicycle.com
Nimbus are great if you’re on a budget (still quite expensive though :() and KH if you have the cash!
you definitely want ISIS as if you do much hopping on square taper you will break it.
hope you get a good uni!
I am pretty sure he is talking about a specific uni he is considering buying.
This is what comes to my mind:
- It should fit your height without any looseness in between the seat tube and the fork’s neck. A seat tube can be shortened with a saw, but nobody has yet managed to lengthen it that way.
- If the saddle isn’t comfortable, calculate a new one too or don’t buy it.
- Check wether it can be true that it has never been used: Does anything creak or run unsmoothly? How about wear of the tire (it should still have a line of rubber in the middle from the production process - at least my tire had that when it was new)
- Is it the uni you want? Read what AlisterBurt writes about stability and axis standards. Consider crank length and wheel size (there’s a lot to find on this forum about these issues).
i have a uni in mind…but thanks
and thank you…i might be looking at it sometime twomorrow
