I was doing small trials on my giraffe a long time ago. I am never ever going to do it again. Normally falling off of 2 pallets is not a big deal but when your wheel is stuck and you are already 5 feet in the air you dont just fall down, you get catapulted really far to the side. That happened to me and I landed on another unicycle. So have fun;)
Bolting the gear to the disk brake mount is an inspired idea, I always wanted to build a Muni giraffe and now I know how. The DM frames are very sturdy, not like my TX, I’ve seen DMs hopped up curbs a lot even in standard form. Seriously though, get some serious protection if you’re going to do trials on this things, I spent the whole of this morning in hospital getting a uncycling injury checked out and it’s not much fun.
Yeah sure, I didn’t mean those two things to be directly connected, I’m not saying the TX can’t do curbs, but the DM is deffinitely a much stronger frame. A friend of mine bent the bottom bracket on his TX hopping curbs, and it does feel like the frame flexes alot when i try and hop on it. But then i probably weigh twice what you do.
