Well, I was quite happy riding 24" unicycle and after a few days of short offroad experience I decided I’ll surely enjoy muni. In fact I was considering it for some time…
So today it came… qu-ax cross 24" ISIS (I knew I won’t be doing big drops).
It came with a new qu-ax seat (based on this low-profile KH seat) – very comfortable.
I must admit this uni is a beast. After some some riding I it feels like a hybrid of a huge, massive tank and a comfy armchair
I’m almost happy with my new toy.
There are a few things, however which bug me:
170mm are loooong, riding is slow. So slow I sometimes lose control due to slowliness and sometimes due to doing too large circles with feet.
on a related note, long cranks make shifting weight to pedals a lot more cumbersome and straining. (because I have to bend knees much more)
OK, so please give me some advice: have you had any similiar feelings at first? How have you resolved them?
Since this is an ISIS hub (I thought it’ll be stronger than a regular square tapered and weaker than a regular yellow hub) I have two options, either
try to exchange this red isis hub based wheelset for red-square tapered and have a larger selection of cranks. Or just change cranks to shorter… but…
which? Do you know of any ISIS cranks of length about 150/152/155mm?
Preferably with a price not reaching the roof
