Both the price and the 127mm crank length make them very compelling. I can’t tell from the pic if it is another ankle-biter or not. The bearing OD looks to be the same as the KH bearing OD.
I’m not sure whether the "Wide: bearing center - bearing center: 100mm " part matches that of the KH hub. Maybe I’ll measure my KH tomorrow.
I’m sure someone nice has already said this stuff on one of the German forums, but my German is not so strong (nor existent). Any help would be much appreciated.
I got myself one of the new quax trials and I gotta say that there is nothing to complain about so far! I cant say that it doesn’t broke when I drop like… 1.5 meters. Because I don’t really fency drops like that. But it did survive first exercises at grinding and pedal grabing.
I think it did a great job til now.
At first I must say sorry, cause my knowledge of the english language is not so good, but I try to give you some information about the Quax splined hub !
I bought a hole wheel with the quax-splined hub, 170mm cranks and 48 hole halo combat rim by www. municycle.com.
I can say that this wheel is really a strong one. My weight is about 95kg and I´m doing some 1 meter drops and the hub is laughing. I´ve heard about some guys doing 1,5 meter drops and it was no problem for the hub too.
In opposition to the KH-hub-crank-combination the quax hub with the cranks are no ankle-bitters at all, cause the cranks are not totally in a straight line.
The hub fits into my nimbus II frame with no problem. So I think this muni wheel for 200,- Euro is unbeatable in the categories of price and strongness.
I hope that these are some usable informations for you.
Hmm. Glad that I found this older thread. I was just about to make a new one about Qu-Ax. I was thinking of replacing my Nimbus/Yuni hub and wheel with a Qu-Ax splined. If my unicyling things go like I have planned it will last pretty long for me. I just weight 60 kg (130 lbs) and I really don’t want to make drops bigger than 150 cm (5 feet) so probably no problems with that. I’ll get a new one if (when) I break the Nimbus hub or the fine Lasco cranks it came with. I’ve done some 2 feet drops and I think´the right crank maybe bent a little bit but I’m not sure. Even though, if I won’t brake the hub during winter next spring will be the time for a new hub because when temperatures start climbing I’ll start some serious MUni, trials and dropping practice.
Measure the hub you have now. As said at the start of this thread the Qu-Ax hub’s bearings are 10 cm (4") apart. And it will fit atleast a Nimbus II frame, but I’m not sure about the KH. Maybe you should try sending mail to the municycle.com folks. They might know something.
I think it may be preferable to have the Nimbus II frame bent permanently to the width of your hub. I’ve seen a bearing come loose where the squeezed-in frame was pulling it outward along the axle. I’m not sure how much a factor the frame was in the dislodging of the bearing but it probably didn’t help.
