so ive been doin some pretty intense trials riding for last few weeks… about 3 hours a day at least, most times more. i had a cheapo 24 in that i upgraded and rode till i realized i needed a real uni… so i up and got myself a dx
as i have been one wheelin it for years the trials progression is goin pretty quick for me… 4 foot drops, 270s, and alot of SIF practice…
now i knew when i was buying the dx it was no top of the line trials uni but from the feedback i got on here, i was pretty sold…
well in the short time that i have been riding this i am realizing that i could have made a better investment
dont get me wrong this thing works, and nothing has failed on me. what bothers me is
1.the bulk to the redesigned frame. there is more than enough clearence… which can only be adding to wieght and also higher to get the feet on.
2.the pedals suck… 3ish weeks and they are already losing solidness… they shake and it is noticable while riding
3. the seat is very thick and is difficult to hold for a long time, making seat out not easy to learn… the seat is nice and soft, but not really needed for trials
this is my first trials uni so i am learning. from what i hear it has a pretty good hub and wheelset, so thats somethin
but in my own opinion there are better choices, after i spend 40 on a seat, 30 on pedals, i coulda just spent a little extra and had a lighter frame and a choice of colors
im not really worried or bothered about this enough to proofread this shit… just needed to rant a bit, and if this actually helps anyone that reads through it, all the better
anyone got any advice for me to upgrade this guy cheap…?
also it the seatpost on the 5 foot torker not as strong? or even the same size? i kinda think that would be a bad idea
