WTB 24 inch frame

I am looking to buy a 24 inch frame with 42 mm bearing housings. I would prefer it to have a left side disc mount tab welded on but will use a D-brake if necessary. It can be aluminum or steel. Location is East Coast USA 28110

Steel frame not really compatible with D-brake
Choices are Impact or Nimbus or QX or RGB (or Triton or Flamberium)

Why is a steel frame not compatible with D-brake? I have seen ppl use them on nimbus 2 frames which are steel.

I would buy the nimbus 2 frame but they are sold out. I can get the oracle but figured i’d check the second hand market before i paid extra for that one

bearing housing on a steel frame is a pressed sheet of stell using bolt + nut while D-Brake is using bolt only plus contact between pressed sheet of steel and machined aluminium are not very good from mechanical point of view …

But it is possible with an adapter. I run my 24" Qu-Ax steel frame with disc brake having no issues.
See here: Euer setup
A simpler setup is here: Euer setup

The d’Brake doesn’t care about using a nut or a thread in the frame. The only important thing is to hava a planar surface to transfer the force from the brake into the frame. More info here: Nimbus D-brake -vs- Mountain Uni UCM brake mounts

Hi Marco, can you elaborate on the sizing of you CRMO frames please? I am assuming the XS-L sizing is for wheel size? If thats the case would a 24” be a S or M

Or am i totally missing something here :slight_smile:

Thank you :+1:t3:

Not always. Some steel frames use machined bearing blocks, like the Nimbus II for example.

The Nimbus frames that are steel (the Muni and road range) have a billet bearings housings (sometimes called a machined bearing housings), not pressed ones. So there is absolutely no problem in fitting the d’brake to them. In fact this was the main market for this product.

Hi Roger, that is one of the reasons i have decided to hold out for the nimbus 2 to come back in stock for this build

Any idea when these will be available and will they have a brake mount?

Correct me if i’m wrong but i see three configurations… the club version with stamped housings, a machined version with no brake mount and the MUni version with brake mount

The Nimbus II is not a MUni or Road unicycle, they are freestyle… but they also make great universal unicycles which is why I guess you are looking at it. It is unlikely they will ever have a brake mount fitted on to them as standard.

The d’brake should work well on it. Especially the latest version which comes with an antivibration bar as standard.

This is the frame i am hoping to buy. If not this one then i will get the version without disc mount and use the d-brake

I will be using it to complete my 24” freewheel

Ah, that one… they just don’t have the latest one. Next production run it will have the mounts on it. :slight_smile:
