wats better? the $260 DX or the $280 qu-ax crossfire or teh nimbus trials (not SE) for $230. my budget is $300 so which one of these unicycles should i get? i just wanna do some street, trials, and a little freestyle.
dont want the SE edition cause it has a rounded frame
I would go with the quax. its a great uni. and in due time you could get some new cranks. you dont need a new hub because the red one and the yellow one are the same. Egon told me. And it has a nice saddle. And actually the nimbus and the quax cranks are similar they are both not the greatest cranks. And id say quax has a better reputation. I think.
the dx is crap compared to what else is on the market. just get the nimbus, easier to get replacement parts and if you wanna upgrade rims you don’t have to be limited to like two different choices like if it had 48 holes.
DX is still there. The wheelset has been tested for years, and only a very few have ever been broken.
Strength wise, I dont know. I have never heard of the Qu-Ax hub ever breaking, or bending, even after being ridden by Joe Hodges, who has broke everything else. And if the Nimbis ISIS hub is the same strength as the KH hub, which I also havent heard of ever breaking (hasnt been out as long as Qu-Ax though lol), I would say the two unis will hold up equally well.
Nothing is wrong with the hubs. If you go with the Qu-Ax, just go with the yellow hub, and not take a chance with what could be a weaker red hub.
I cant tell which one will hodl up the best. I personally have rode the DX, and took it down big sets and drops. Holds up great. I havent rode the crossfire, but I have rode the regular Qu-Ax, and took it down some big drops as well. That feels more solid than the DX. I ahvent rode the NImbus either, but if it is same design and material as the KH Moments, which I am riding right now, they will hold up really well too.
