Over the summer I found an old Torker 24in uni in my parents garage that I bought about 15 years ago and never learned to ride. Couple days of pain and I was up and going.
I have been riding around the streets and getting onto some basic, simple bike trails to get the feel for mountain uni.
I find myself much more engaged with mountain uni as I am an avid mountain biker so it connects a little better and holds my attention more than riding down the road for several miles.
Had been looking for a muni for a few months but everything has been out of stock all summer.
Finally a Nimbus 29 came in stock and I snagged it, will arrive next week. A few questions in the meantime that I have had trouble finding answers for.
The frame of the nimbus has the IS disc mount, and 6 bolt hub. Can I add any disc brake to this or do some work better for muni than others based on modulation or bite points? I assume a 2 pot brake is sufficient?
Do I need different cranks to add a disc brake? I have seen some posts indicate you need KH DH cranks but I can’t wrap my brain around why that would be.
Lastly, is tubeless a thing? I’ve been riding tubeless on my MTB for years and can’t fathom running tubes again as it works so well. Any ideas if the Nimbus come with a tubeless ready wheel?
Thanks for the help!
