So im building a new trials uni here are the specs :
K1 cranks 125
Tryall rim (I know its weak illl change it later)
Monty white stripe trials tire (will cahnge that too I have 1 right now so yea)
Nimbus 2 frame (if anyone has one for sell pm either that or a kh frame dont care what year)
and a piece of crap seatpost but a thomspon will go on in like 1-2 weeks…
SO what do you all think ? bad ? good ? suggestions ?
Well if you do alot of rails and ledges, plastics would be nice. Oddysees(however the crap you spell it) plastics are really good. Metal pedals with grind plates would be okay but would suck if you did things like unispins and flips.(don’t know if your into that though).
Odyssey twisted plastic pedals are really good when they are brand new. If you do a lot of grinding then they will start to suck. I ride some really old odyssey plastics right now and they are perfect for my riding even though they have very little grip left, probably not as good for really big stuff because you want a lot of grip. When my feet slide off doing flatland it isn’t a big deal, if they slipped off hopping down a 10 set then well…ouch.
IF you like jumping sets and doing jumps into one foot and things like that then I would recommend trying out the 110’s, I love mine. I found I lost a bit of control when landing onto really skinny things (perpendicular to the wheel) but other than that I find them to be alot smoother and much faster meaning I can almost jump 8 sets without hopping.
Monty tyre (if its the new one [the holey one]) I have heard to be GREAT. But, that was from a trials rider (respectable one, Joe hodges 2nd in trials at unicon). Plastics are cool, really nice, depends how big you go.
