Hi, just wondered what are the weights of the main splined hub and crank sets…
- QU-AX SPLINED hub/cranks
Any help please post, preferably in grams but imperial’ll do, and I guess thats what I’ll get with all you americans!
First, I think there are like 242 grams to a pound.
With that said, unicycle.com says profile is 2lb hub, and each crank is 1/2lb, totaling up to 3lbs. I think that’s 170s.

Re: Re: Hub and Cranks weights…
If there are 453.592 grams in one pound, how many dogs does each Gram own?
QU-AX hub = 680g
145mm cranks = 706g
24" Halo SAS rim = 674g
48 spokes for the above with nipples = 320g
I would have finished building it for you, BUT now you have made me take it apart to weigh it
Sorry, I was reciting a stat I heard about 15 months ago, so I wasn’t sure if it was 453 or 242. I had both numbers inmy head, and just couldn’t remember which was which.
LOL!!! Thanks Mike, looking fwd to when it arrives!!!
Right I worked out roughly…
QU-AX with 145’S = 1386g
Profile we asume with 170’s = 1350g
Any other weights would be very nice…Onza/ KH
remember the qu-ax will weigh more as it is a 48 hole hub so the wheel set will weigh more but it’s v strong!! It’s a nice cheep muni i have one i think rodger has some 2 sell. and @ £10 more then a nimbus it’s a great deal!!
I know I’ve ordered mine:p
the only bad thing is the saddle the mud sticks 2 it!
the frame is v wide u will hit ur knees 4 like a week but after that it’s fine trust me. I might b getting a different frame for it sometime tho as it is fairly heavy and v strong i might get the cheaper frame off municycle
It’s just the hub/cranks I’m getin so no probs:D
