So, learn to go backwards and idle on the torker and then start thinking about a trials/street uni?
Ya, I guess technology advancements are my concern. In about a year when I’ll probably really be ready for a new uni, will they be that much better and cheaper? How fast is technolgy moving in this sport now?
Will I be able to learn things faster on a trials uni?
The original price of the uni and the crank upgrades were errors, it really was too good to be true. They aren’t jacking up prices just to make a profit. With the original prices they were actually losing money. They honored the original prices for me after a call only because I placed the order when the cheaper prices were still listed. The customer service at UDC US is truly unparalleled, what people need to realize is that its only three or four people running the entire shop. Think of your local bike shop in the spring or a local ski shop at the beginning of winter - its usually very very busy there and they are only servicing one town. UDC has the same number of people working but are servicing an entire country! Its to be expected that every now and then something will slip through the cracks.
I still totally recommend the uni at its current price.
Yeah i still am planning to get this but when i read your post about the kh cranks only being 15 extra i got excited then depressed two posts later:p
Yeah you got a sick deal. It thought the crank upgrade was to cheap because on the Nimbus X Street the upgrade costs 52 for the Moment cranks.
They look like low-end cotterless cranks. They are very thin and nearly impossible to stand on. I also wasn’t able to put the pedals on with a wrench because of the peculiar shape of the crank. I had to use the really thing wrench-like tool that came with the uni to get the pedals on.
I mean if you don’t have the money, don’t worry about it too much. But I prefer the cranks on my qu-ax, torker, and the qu-ax cotterless cranks I have on my Coker over them as far as shape is concerned.
You lose money if you wait to upgrade them, because then you pay full price of both sets of cranks.
ok i think i will just wait till Christmas and get a great uni that i wont need to worry about upgrades on for a while.
hopefully Brian’s uni comes tommorow sinces that is what I am now planning on minus the carbon fiber seat.
