Hey there Ya’ll,
I was just on the phone with a Scott Laliberte, the international sales manager for Kooka Components. They are doing some restructering right now, but when they fire up the machines later this year they will be looking for unique and specialized components to manufacture…
Kooka makes some good stuff, I’ve had 170mm Kooka cranks on my MUni for almost two years and I’ve yet to bend them. They’ve been to the North Shore a couple times and dropped off many stages, picnic tables, etc. No bendy!
Since quality cranks in shorter lengths are non existant, I contacted him about making some shorter cranks for trials Unicycling (and he called me back!). My preferred length for the 20inch Monty wheel would be 135mm. and I think my preferred length for a 24inch would be in the 150mm range. Scott said he would try to get the owner to manufacture at least two lengths of shorter cranks for us and possibly even make a hub.
*What is your ideal crank length for 20inch trials?
*What is your ideal crank length for 24inch trials?
Please email me with your preffered crank lengths (in millimeters please) and I will get the info back to Kooka. Email your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to contact Kooka directly and show them your support and interest you can write Scott at email@example.com
