Why are all the Kris Holm unicycles on sale right now? It makes me think that Kris might be planning to release some updated products soon. I’m not asking Kris to divulge any trade secrets. I just hate buying something new only to find out, in six months, that a new version is coming out soon. a.k.a. The Apple Watch
As for now, the 2012 KH frames with the disc brake tab already welded on are still the latest and greatest. Correct?
To make things simple in the UK we have put all KH unicycles and parts on 30% discount. This does not mean that everything on sale is going to be changed or updated the next version come out; so have fun.
Cue crazy theories about what new products could be!!!
I’ve often wondered why Kris recommends (in certain configurations) removing your saddle nose-handle and replacing it with a T-bar. I’d be interested to see a saddle handle that’s already shaped/built like a T-bar (IE. bull-bars poking right out the front) for those who put the T-bar so close to the saddle that it might as well be a saddle handle.
Oh, and 3-hole cranks complete with automagic quick-release system for your pedals (Yes I know these things already exist…)
Back in real-land, could there possibly be a KH uni with a disk already on it?
Man, I hope not. I feel like this will come with a bigger price tag. Not sure why a mandatory brake is there. I don’t want or need a brake for road or mountain riding that I do. The first thing I would do with a brake would be rip it off and try and sell the cranks and brake to pay for non-disk cranks. Someone here would be excited I guess.
Looking forward to seeing the new rigs! I hope the changes aren’t just another iteration of the same thing. It’d be great to see something shake things up. Carbon/Ti/Steel/Magnesium Alloy frame? Thinner 36er rim and tire? Cheaper geared hub? KH fat-tire 29er?
Meh, I suppose I can dream for another week or two.
