I Just got my new KH trials today. It feels sooo squirly and weird since I’m used to my MUni for doing this stuff.
I put a tryall tire and twisted PC’s on it, so at least it looks cool, but whether I can learn to do (clean) tricks on it is another matter!:o
So here ya go, and some 36er stuff too. Haha watch the hiker at the end! Hope you enjoy, and appreciate your comments! :):D:p
Yeah I like it low when doing jumps since it allows for more knee bend and tuck. Not as necessary for sif, but for si you want it low for ups. I like the saddle higher though for unispins-not that I can do them (180) very well-yet!
Yes to the first question. The rim is 19", and UDC states that the CC tire is also 19", but it says 20" on the sidewall, as does the tryall. To the second comment, I must not have heard the “warning” about hopping on a 36er lol!
The rim is actually 15". Bike rims size are measured as if a 2" wide tire is on them, adding 4" onto the total diameter. So 19" rim is 15", 20" rim is 16", 24" rim is 20", etc. Trials (mod rear) tires for 19" (15") rims are all 20x2.5 making the total diameter of the rim and tire 20". Front rims of trials bikes are 20" (16") rims. Front trials tires (for mod bikes) are all (that I know of) 20x2.0 making the total diameter 20". So don’t buy any trials tires that are 20x2.0 if you plan to use it on a 19" (15") rim.
Yes, the 19" designation apparently refers to the approx. total size with tire on. But both the CC and the tryall trials tires are clearly marked 20x2.5, not 19". Doesn’t really matter as long as it fits properly, and it does. Btw , the actual measurement of my KH rim is just a tad over 15", and with the tryall or Maxxi trials tire it’s a full 20" diameter. Now my torker lx rim is 16". Oh, and even though the tryall trials tire is marked “20x2.5”, you must still use a 19" (15" actual but they call the 19") rim.
Well, Some riders like Joe Hodges and myself like riding with the saddle EXTREMELY low. Joe has his at his knees last time i check, and same goes for me (really, its really really comfortable doing SI like that, and just for normal riding). Some SIF riders have theres really high, which i cant stand when i’m riding.
