I need to buy a good trials uni. i dont wnt to spend any more that £175 good old english sterling on it.
any ideas i was thinking of a Qu-ax Splined Trials Unicycle http://www.unicycle.uk.com/shop/shopdisplayproduct.asp?catalogid=646
what you think??
That’s what I have, except mine is 24". I’m really happy with it. I’d say go for it.
thats probably good. I got a torker dx first adn it is pretty good and costs a little less. My uni now costs a lot more because really good trials unis cost around 330 i think but the cheeper ones are probably good.
That one is excellent for trials riding, nice and strong and not too heavy. The seat is a little thick for seat in front jumping, but it is managable. If you wanted you could buy a thinner one or modify it yourself, but as it is it works nicely.
If you buy it, let me know what you think - I’m considering getting that as my next rig.
I have the 24" version and I am very happy with it. as far as I know, most people like the trials version too.
The QuAx has a weak rim which is prone to flat spots.
i have a friend who is 190 pounds and does a ton of trials 4-5 foot drops all day long. rim is perfect. the wheel can take quite i bit of abuse.
don’t not buy a quax because of the wheel.
I think forrest rides and is sponsered by Qu-Ax.
He’s insanely good…
How about a Nimbus Hoppley?
I believe they’re about the same price.
I have to say, having one myself, that it is a great unicycle. It is light, incredibly strong, and …well…a sexy beast.
cheers people. i think ill get this 1:P cheers all for your help:D
good trials uni
Get a Torker DX '05 from www.bicyclesource.us they have them for 200 bucks
Ops, never mind. I don’t think they ship to the UK.
The Qu-Ax unicycle is a pretty good choice, its extremely strong, only thing I ever broke on my Qu-Ax was a saddle, and they all have the same Velo plastic seatbase. Good uni for the price.
So does Koxx, the new Qu-Ax rim is a very good and wide rim, most probably you’ll get the new rim if you order it. I’m not saying the old rim is bad, I’ve done 2 meter drops on it, screwed up my ankles, and the dear old Qu-Ax was doing just fine.
