So I’ve been riding my 20 inch Torker DX for a while now and I’ve upgraded both the seat and the pedals. Now I’ve noticed that the neck of my frame is bent, and it’s gotten pretty uncomfortable to ride.
I’ve sifted through the search results on this, but haven’t found a thing. Can someone recommend a frame that will fit my DX wheelset and seatpost?
I’m mostly a street rider, but I would like the flat crown so that I can do a little flatland.
Can anyone recommend a frame(and possibly link to it?)
Actually, the new Nimbus II frames won’t work without shims, they have bearing holders machined for 42mm. The bearings on the DX hub are 40mm. You are best off calling UDC and asking what they have in stock which would fit a trials wheel with 40mm bearings.
yeah, very helpful guys, that frame has a lifetime warranty, you can break it(don’t do it too stupidly) and take it to the place you bought it from. if that isn’t an option, a lbs should be able to help you if they aren’t jerks like my local lbs ppl are… totally geared toward road cycling and look down upon everything else.
He said he wanted a flat frame so he could do flatland…which would leave the DX frame in the running if he could get it replaced for free. Also, you should work on being a bit more tactful when you think that your opinion should matter more than anyone elses. I’ve seen you cut on at least three people (that usually are helpful and provide decent advice) in the past 24 hours for no real reason.
Anyway, back on topic. I think the DX frame or the nimbus frame will be the best ways to go. Nimbus frames are cheap and pretty strong and a torker DX frame should be free with proof of purchase
Yes people ride trials on it and there is one french rider that comes to mind that used it for street. I am getting myself one for my street unicycling and that crown should be better than that of the dx frame for everything.
Which length frame should I order? I’m tall enough to fit on the tallest one, but I feel the weight of the longneck and the fact that I ride with the saddle a little low makes me think I should order the middle(or shortest) one…
That is all preference. What I did was get the tallest so I can cut the frame down to any size I want. If you would be able to do that and have access to the tools I say go for the middle one. Oh, when you give them a call ask how high it is from the crown up so you can get a rough idea of the minimum height you would have for your seat.
