I got it off UDC a couple of months ago.
I made a couple of substitutions. A KH Fusion Freeride saddle, red JC pedals, and pedal protectors.
I already had a Nimbus gel and was looking for some more comfort, so I asked them to substitue the Freeride, I had to pay the $14 diff. UDC would not take the plastic pedals off the order, so I payed full price for the JC’s.
When it arrived I assembled it and tried like crazy for over 1 1/2 hrs. to get the protectors on the JC’s w/ little success. I finally cut off part of the nubs put them on the best I could and secured them w/ duct tape. The tape lasted for a couple of days, then I used some of a friends zip ties, two per pedal. I’ve had to replace three of them.
The spokes on the rim were horribly loose and I had to tighten all of them 3-4full turns. I started w/ 1 turn each all the way arround, one side then the other, then repeated w/ 1/2 turns, then 1/4 as they started to get tight. I’m not great at trueing, but that seemed pretty good, same as delivered, but loose.
The uni is very light and easy to spin in my hands (can’t really do any tricks yet), strangely even easier than my lighter learner.
The Kenda Kikzumbut tire is very light and has a thin sidewall. I like to ride my other tires at 30 psi but to get a similar ride I need to raise the pressure to 45. I hit the rim much easier than other tires I’ve used and it wanders quite a bit. I theorize the wandering wouldn’t be much of an isue w/ over 60 psi. At lower air pressures, like 30-45 it is quite springy.
It road just like my learner w/ that seat but, except for the tire, it wasn’t flexing all over the place. On my learner I could feel the wheel, frame, cranks, and post all flex. Once I put on a tire more to my liking there was no flex anywhere that I could detect.
I started off using my Nimbus gell saddle, same ride, just no anoying flex. A couple of days of riding I put on the KH and it’s definately the most comfortable seat I’ve tried, much less numbness. (DX, LX, CX, Nimbus Gel, KH air, and now KH Freeride) On drops and bumpy rides my but and back get more sore than w/ the KH air, but not as much as the Gell. On the downside the Freeride is a lot harder to hold onto for SIF.
I thought it would take some getting used to the 114 cranks and I’d have to temporarily go to a rail, but it just took 20 or 30 pedal strokes. They are much lighter than even my 102 mm steel cranks, and have a give me a higher top speed than my 125’s but I have difficulty pedaling fast and consistantly smooth (more of a problem on the 102’s), so my average speed is higher on my 125’s. W/ 114’s it was easier to learn SIF than on the 102’s or the 125’s.
I ride a night a lot so I added an X on each side above the “Nimbus” sticker and along the rim w/ reflective tape. White on the left, and red on the right. I looks sweet. I wish I had a camera.
