I’m guessing that sense they are being sold now theyre stronger, but I’m not sure. it would be better for trials than the KH, but for street(depending on what kind of street you do) a KH frame would be better.
What is your point about them using the same aluminum peice in both welds?
I have no doubt in my mind that anything koxx or koxx-one makes is very durable.
about the carbon fiber frame,
it wouldnt be cost effective - carbon fiber is expensive in large amounts, and a frame’s worth of carbon fiber would no doubt be in the high-hundreds, or more likely, few-thousands
it would be more ergonomic to make a carbon fiber reinforced frame, since carbon fiber alone lacks the elasticity that common metals have - your frame and seatposts are exposed to high stress (assuming we’re talking trials/muni) and require the ability to flex, even if it is only a small fraction of a centimeter. carbon fiber will crack before it gets the chance to bend. a crack in your CF frame could be very dangerous for you, not to mention a loss of a hefty amount of money.
I think every trials unicyclist do a few street/freestyle tricks too. Even Kris Holm do gliding and coasting. I also cant see something what makes the frame worth the money, if it is heavier than the Kris Holm frame.
Thats the best thing on KH I think, for example Wogri get a new one for free too, when his frame broke, and he is not sponsored by Kris Holm. A guy from Germany has destroyed his Koxx cranks. When he asked yoggi for new ones, or rabat on new ones, Yoggi only said, that he must practice often do get a better technik.
The disadvantage is the shorter people cant ride your frame. having few differnt sizes could solve that, but create problems for retailers.
the cnc looks like overkill to me, and it dosent support the seat tube at all. i think a slim cnc block that supports the legs, and seat, and is flat for one foot stuff would look awesome be stronger and lighter than this frame.
