Hi, I have decided to get a good trials uni. I have worked hard all summer and have gotten around $2000. I got all them parts that I have been drooling over these past few months:) .
If you have any objections, tell me!
Miyata Leather Cover Replacement from Unicycle.com $40
Wallis Derail Base with SIF grips from http://wallisdesign.com/MuniPage.html $190
Death Grip handle, wallis design (wanna try it out!) $72
Thompson 25.4, from local bike shop $35 (50% off)
2006 KH20 Frame, from bedford $175
Profile Hub and Cranks, from bedford $400
Echo 48mm rim rear 19’ from http://www.thetrialsinshop.com/wheels.htm $70
Maxis CC rear 19’ from trialsinshop (in Canada) for $45
kh seatpost clamp 25.4 $10
Gel for saddle, local bike shop $15
Spokes and nipples;)! $30
I don’t think that there is a koxx dealer in Canada. If I import stuff, and if it is over 50$, then I have to pay the awful border fees of 50$. I have to add 50$ to anything over fifty! So anything out of Canada is out of the question.
I presume you want the echo rim to save weight? Well, 1 drilled rims can add to strength complications, 2 if you really wanted to save weight, you wouldnt get the pfile hub. Go with a standard rim, non of that drilling nonsense. Get a Alex or Kh.
Yes, the echo is good because it is so wide. It does come in 36, that was the first thing that I checked. The holes don’t make an overall diference in strength. My brother rides bike-trials, and he has landed 10ft drops on one of these, on the rear wheel.
If you plan to ride alot outside in the winter I’d try another tire other then the Maxxis. I think I’m the only one who has had problems with them but riding in -20 alot mine cracked. If that’s a problem for you I’d go with another tire, just so you don’t take the chance…
Yes, you’re right, the post is 27.2;) Thanks! Uniquely Canadian, I have a Luna tire with studds in it. This is my ice beast! I made it of steel screws, just be careful not to get your leg on you tire, it really hurts!
