well to start off with the schwinn my dad bought a few years ago. my brother put the seat on backwards so the pedal got lose the striped out the crank. So i put a big bolt through it with some washers a nut to keep it in place and a pice of tubing over it for you foot to go on. This made ridng hard but i managed . well my dad bought a 15 dollar parts bike to fix my brothers bike so i took those cranks a pedals for the uni. Yesterday i decided it was time to jump from higher obsticles and learn to rollout of them. so i found a big rock that was a bit over 2 feet high. i started jumping off and then i started to try rolling out. well i was able to roll out on all of them after a bit but the damage was all ready done my axel twisted where the cranks go on and the cranks were at around a 130 degree angle with one another . i took the uni back to the garage and put a pipe on the crank to bend the axel back. I bent it almost back to perfect and with these crappy cranks i can get it close to 180. but after i jump a few time off something around 2 feet high the crank starts to move. so this uni i being retired from muni and jumping and put back to road use before it is compleatly destroyed. So now i need a new uni. Im thinking 24 inch dx b/c of the splined hub. but i am thinking i might want to go bigger to either 26 or 29 and then later on get a trials uni but that wouldn’t be until next year since i owe my parents 1500 dollars for a ski trip to mt hood that i am leaving for friday:D . so what i am think is to get the 24 dx and then a 29 later. so what i am asking is so people with the 24 dx find that it is okay for some trials stuff and street stuff?
24 x 3" muni’s are great
Maybe the best all arounder. I have a 20 trials a 24 muni and a 36. Life is better with more uni’s! But the tire on the 24 wears down first. If you can’t have them all, maybe the 24 is the best. I ride it the most it seems.
i just want to make sure that the 24dx is do able for street riding. nothing extreme but for some small unispins and crankflips
ah my dad has a schwinn too, really hard to ride!
i am trying to practice trials haha
hmm…unispins are completely do-able on a 24", but I’ve never heard of crankflips on a 24", maybe someone with more experience will chime in soon…
I can do flips on a 24. I think Justin Kohse can double on his 24 and do some other flip tricks. It is definitely much easier on a 20" though.
Yeah Justin can do flips on his 24 as well and hes not even that great ha ha he’ll never read this luckily.
ok thanks that prety much answers my question. Im guna order the dx in probly a week.
