beware this hub/crank set- it is going to bend after lots of even moderate riding- and there are no alternative cranks for it once you bend your first ones. I’d go KH ISIS or nimbus ISIS hub over it anyday.
It looks to me they haven’t changed the specks from the original Hopley.
Frame: powdercoated blue
Rim: Alex 32
…but it’s obviously green (I wouldn’t call that electric) and it looks like it has the 42 mm Nimbus rim.
I remember thinking it odd that Qu-Ax cranks fit on the KH/Onza hub, but I read that they do and ARE strong. It’s the stock Nimbus ISIS cranks that will bend.
I also read that those cranks would fit on my DX, so now I have 170’s on my 24. More than the length I like the increased Q-factor. But the cranks have been loosening pretty regularly even at 65 lbs w/ red lock tight. I’ve been told that this may be from greese getting on the threads (the hub bearings are leaking). I cleaned the threads w/ alcohol and put it back on w/ blue lock tight @ 60 lbs w/ the left crank the last time it came loose. No problems yet:o
Any kind of unicycle that can withstand a 200lb, 6’5" person jumping on it from 5ft up, for less than $400, is a great deal.
That green is pretty damn cool looking too…better than the blue, in my opinion
I have a Hoppley from before and it’s great. I don’t know how much stronger of a hub/crank interface you could want, judging by the way this thing holds up. I’ve done a couple of 5ft+ drops on mine and it hasn’t made any breaking/creaking noises.
The only thing about the Hoppley that I would change if I could is the frame weight. The Nimbus II frame is strong and nicely shaped, but a bit heavy compared to the KH frame.
It’s nice to see that they’ve finally reintroduced the Hoppley though. I hope more people get it.
Just to clarify some things that were made confusing by the previous posts…
Qu-Ax made cranks specifically for the 04 KH hub. That hub/crank interface was 8 spline.
When Qu-Ax made their own hub and cranks, they switched to a 10 spline hub/crank interface. These cranks will not fit on the 04 KH hub, or any hub other than Qu-Ax non ISIS or Torker.
EDIT: IMHO the Nimbus ISIS trials upgraded with KH cranks is a far better deal than this out of date unicycle. You can’t even be sure of what you’re getting, because the description and picture do not match. Picture shows KH/Onza hub/cranks but description says KH/Onza hub with Qu-Ax cranks, and no Qu-Ax cranks that I know of will fit the KH/Onza hub.
