Uni Weights...

i NEED to know the exact weight of the Torker Unistar DX 20-inch Trials (http://www.unicycle.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=764).

and the Qu-Ax 20-inch Trials Unicycle (http://www.unicycle.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=795)

Thanks…

The “exact” weight is impossible to know, because it would require a perfect measurement, which is impossible to make. You need a “precise” weight, how precise do you need it?

mine is about 14lbs. all i did was hold the uni on my scale and than step on the scale witout it. than i subtracted the amount with me and the uniby just my weight.

Oh my god. Is this what you do in your free time? Wait for a sixteen year old kid to make a tiny, irrelevant mistake on a unicycling forum just so you can correct him?

Have fun!

Gee, I was just trying to have some fun, Harper would have enjoyed it.

I weighed my Qu-Ax trials the same way, and it came out about the same, 14lbs. It would take a more precise scale to see the weight difference between Torker DX or Qu-Ax trials.

yeah i think you would need an actual scale that is built to weigh bikes/unicycles, bathroom scales would be set differently i reckon :thinking:

Me too. But I couldn’t help wondering why ‘precise’ would me a more
relative term than ‘exact’, as you seem to imply.

I’m guessing it’s a scientific thing.

In order to ‘properly’ answer the query, it’s neccesary to know what he wants it for.
If it’s for postage, the closest pound would probably be fine.
If he needs to use the unis as counterweights in some elaborate clock, it’ll probably won’t.

Vanman2004, relax.

In the technical world, precise is a relative term requiring qualification, so one can speak of how precise a measurement is (+/-10% etc.) Exact is an absolute term, which comes to us from mathematics. One can have an exact solution to an equation, but it is not possible to make an exact measurement.

ok i am going to be using the torker dx for street and trials… i DONT want a beginners trials uni?? will this uni hold me back?? and now i have a bedford light trials uni, would i be able to switch frames is i wanted to??

THe Dx wont hold oyu back, I use a Dx 20 for street and trials, and a dx 24 for muni… I do just fine on them…

Yeah, I was in a bad mood and I’m terrible at internet sarcasm. I need a waiting period before I can post.

I believe the Bedford uses 42MM bearings, where the Torker uses 40mm. UDC sells shims that will make the Torker 40’s fit the 42mm frame.
