heyo there all. i have a nimbus 26" witch i love riding. but i hate the weight!
any ideas how i could save weight? maybe a kh frame? anyone selling one or willing to trade (i no its highly unlikely) but would really help!
im really keen to get into fast techy muni and cant manover very well cause of teh weight. im thinking a thinner tyre aswell? any reccommendations?
I think not the uni is the issue here but a lack of strength. On tech downhills you can go faster with a 26" because of the higher diameter and I assume you will not jump up lots of things but simply drop down so weight shouldn’t be much of a problem. Also another frame will save you 0.5kg at maximum.
I would definitely try a lighter tire. Even the original version of the KH26 didn’t fit a 3" tire because Kris thought the volume wasn’t necessary for the wheel size. Look at the “official MUni tire review thread” for ideas. It sounds like a Maxxis Minion 2.7 is a good all around tire, and the Continental Rubber Queen 2.4 gets at least one good review. The reviewer said that it pushes the limit of what the original KH26 frame could handle, and so I’m pretty sure it’s a fat 2.4.
