i did a search and found verry little, but yes once i heal from my injury i plan on getting a 20 inch unicycle for street. mayble light trials nothing extream i got a 24 dx for that …but yes i have been planning on purchasing either a qu-ax cross or a nimbus.
there have been threads about this but they all seemed 2 be about the splinned qu-ax
…(i am wondering which one out of the nimbus and the unsplined qa-ax)
which will last the longest with street and mild drops. i think the most might be about 3feet and if im feeling craza maybe 4 but nothing more…the qu-ax is only like 19 dollars more so im willing 2 spring that money if its better. but i just want 2 make sure that the nimbus isnt just as good or better.
So do I. The splined Qu-Ax is a great trials, but when you get to non-splined, I’m not sure about it. I’d be willing to bet the non splined Qu-Ax hub is stronger than the Nimbus, though… I would trust them more than Nimbus.
Also, the newer Qu-Ax’s have a wider stronger rim than before, so that part beats the Nimbus too. I’ve heard of the Nimbus rim having weird problems…
Its got an eyeletted 36-hole rim, which is very strong and is compatible with any other hubset if you break the hub and want to upgrade. The 48-spoke qu-ax would mean you have to buy another rim as well.
The tyre is better, I know it makes little difference but the Luna is considerably better than the CC, it’ll last longer and makes for a nice, stable, controllable fold.
The hub is probably stronger, although not having had a cotterless hub for trials I can’t really tell. I’d say the difference would be marginal if there is any.
Nimbus frames are bomb-proof, and the new 25.4mm dia. seatposts make it much stronger than the older 22.2mm ones.
Proper KH saddle, not some cheap knock-off. It has a handle on it as well… pretty critical for trials, really.
John will support any difficulties you may have through defects. They’re made & designed by UDC so they know what goes wrong. Roger here in the UK has replaced cranks for free if they break or bend within a certain time, so you can expect decent customer support for a UDC unicycle.
I don’t know about the nimbus but on the french forum there has been load of threads on the “qu-ax Cross” subject…
what remains of all this is that you can break a Qu-ax cross hub on a 50cm drop (1.5 feet) if you weight more than 60 kg.
I think they get weak with time.
i just think i will save my sheckles for a splinned uni. i have a torker dx 24 so i think i might get the 20 but how is it for street i heard alot of threads about it being an ok trials uni but how bout for street is it 2 heavy or is that workable
the 20, IMO, is great for street and trials, the weight isnt bad at all, it took me about 10mins to get used to have an extra few pounds on there, and it hold up great, most ive done on it so far are an 8-set and about 5 foot drops, and the most that has happened is i broke a tiny peice of the welgo pedal on my left, and the spokes have gotten loose about 3 times, other than that, its great =p
