I ride a few minutes on it (stand up). Yes the crown is realy grippy, but it hurts my feets, because the frame is higher on the corners and my feet stand only on the corner of the frame. I personaly like the old siegmono (or semcycle i think it is the same) long neck frame the most.
The frame looks gorgeous, but appart from that I have my doubts.
Like Lutz I like a flat top for standup stuff. I wonder how long it will take to break the aluminum seatpost (I killed several steel seatpost on my freestyle uni, not to mention my alu trial seatpost). Apart from that there seems to be nothing special on this uni, not even a splined hub like on the new Qu-ax.
A truly flat crown alu frame with such a grippy pattern, now that might be something! Still I would love to try the Koxx frame, at least they are trying something new. I also heard that one of the Koxx-sponsored freestyle riders liked the frame alot.
Just making sure we get some historical perspective.
I doubt that DM was the first to make a frame with a knurled crown tube. Everything old is new again.
I was a little incorrect. The frame is actually more like the DM Ringmaster Advanced Custom. The Custom frame had a flat crown like the Koxx-One does. The regular Ringmaster Advanced had a slightly sloping crown.
I think for all of you who like 20" splined street unis with skinny tires this would be awesome. combine this with maxxis hookworm, alex triple wall rim, koxx 110 or 125 splined cranks and splined hub, nimbus gel saddle, koxx clamp, KH seat post, torker LX pedals, drool
Wonderful, I am glad to see Koxx is still doing something but its about time they started producing some Cranks to replace my busted ones instead of making some new frame that no one needs.
MAKE MORE CRANKS
Sorry about that just I’m sick of riding with my pedals on an angle. It is nice to see that Koxx is producing some pretty sweet stuff though. This frame looks very similar to the high end miyata frames.
