I just purchased a 26 " uni so I wont be riding my 20" as much but here is my problem. I have a 20" torker CX and was a little worried that I might be to big for it. I have the tire’s pumped up to 55psi and it said on the tire that the max pressure was 45psi. but when i hop on the thing it looks low? Is that normal for uni’s? I am afraid that I will pop the tire and do a faceplant.
random fact of the day: proper radio protical states that you use “over” when you request a responce and “out” when not requesting a responce.
170 is not really that heavy and compared to a bike you put twice as much weight on the tire, it is prety normal for there to be some buldge in the bottom of the tire. If you want a higher pressure tire it is easy enough to just replace the tire with a higher quality BMX tire.
My daughter’s Torker CX came with a skinny tire. I forget the size, maybe 20x1.75? Anyway, noticably smaller than the LX with its 20x2.125" tire. You might check if you can go up to a bigger tire size with it, which would help some. The frame is not as wide as the LX, but still has some room.
And I would say that thing is not meant for hopping, especially with the little tire that comes on it.
The 20" size isn’t the problem, I’m bigger than you and a 20" works fine, although a bigger wheel would speed me along some.
I meant the whole thing. Not that I’ve broken one of each to see how they compare or anything. But the CX appears to be lighter built than the LX, and most of these guys that are doing any jumping around to speak of are on something higher quality than an LX.
yeah, the cx is really designed as a starter uni for children (hence the small seat), they’re not very strong at all. You may be too big for the cx, but anyone can ride a 20". a good 20" wheel will be stronger than any other wheel you can get
