I’m new on this forum but I ride for 2 years. I have a 26 inch qu-ax luxus and I would paint this unicycle because www.qu-ax.com is really not beautiful. It’s easy to choose the color for a 20 inch unicycle but for 26 inch, I don’t know what color can be fun.
Any idea ? :roll eyes:
ps : my qu-ax has a kris holm wheel so the unicycle a good face but the frame is au-ax luxus
ps 2 : I’m not a girl. It can be important for color
Yeah, it’s possible to get nice results from a spray can but it takes some of time and effort and know-how. Not as easy as the TV commercials make it seem! I haven’t painted a uni frame but I’ve done rims and lots of other stuff over the years, and made lots of mistakes and messes along the way too. But you have to start somewhere.
There have been nice results from frames that were powder coated too.
People notice the overall color scheme more than the color of the frame, so think about how it works with the seat, pedals, etc. you’re using. A contrasting mixture like a flat black or olive or desert tan frame with neon color pedals and seatpost clamp gets attention.
It’s your personal statement and it’s really up to you. I doubt there’s any color that’s hasn’t been used on a uni yet. Some manly men choose pink, although maybe that was more of a thing a couple of decades ago. Search for the old “Custom [Kris Holm/Impact/Koxx/etc] Unicycle” threads if you want more ideas.
Thank you for all your answers . I wanted to do it with a spray, otherwise I think it’s very complicated.
My unicycle is all black at the moment so I wanted to put a little color .
LargeEddie : Thank you for the name of the thread , I’ll be able to find good ideas
And as you say Alucard , I could change color if it does not please me .
And thank you to juggleaddict for things not to do, it will prevent me from doing silly things.
Finally, I found someone else who thinks this. Don’t get me wrong, Qu-Ax makes good strong unicycles, but there design is not.
I have a Qu-Ax Profi (20"), and I removed the front sticker which says “Only one - But Fun”. Qu-ax makes adult unicycles, but they are too childish. There manuals as well are really childish, looks like they belong to a childrens toy.
First when I read this, I thought: “omg, not blue, don’t we have enough blue frames from KH?” But when I see the picture I must say: great paintjob, it really looks nice! This is a really beautiful blue
If you take the standard/beginner unicycles of Qu-Ax, this might be true. But you can’t compare them to KH. And the standard ones of nimbus look nearly the same.
But look at their QX series unicycles. I like their design much more than the KH or nimbus.
