The uni has been great so far! Strong and cheap, what else could you want?
The uni is heavier than I thought/anticipated but that’s because it’s pretty damn strong. It’s probably around 15lbs.
On the inside of the cranks it says “Reinforced” so I think I got the reinforced cranks instead of lightweight but that’s ok with me since that just adds to the strength.
I find the seat pretty comfortable. It’s not as good as say a KH Fusion but it’s a trials uni so you don’t spend as much time sitting on the seat.
I’ve only had one significant problem with it (aside from the horrendous fluo green which can be fixed with a can of spray paint) and that is the front bumper has divots in it which were extremely painful to grip. That was slightly problematic for a trials uni since I’m grabbing that 99% of the time. This problem was easily solved by covering the grip in duct tape. Now it’s soft and grippy making me happy unicyclist
One other minor problem is that the seatpost clamp is single bolt instead of double bolt. This hasn’t been a problem yet but I may end up replacing it in the future just for peace of mind.
Overall, this is a fantastic uni. If you’re on a budget, or even if you aren’t, and you want a quality trials uni, look no further than an XTP Fluo.
Nice review, good to hear you like the unicycle! All saddles except the latest KH saddles have the same handle, so it’s not really a problem specific to this unicycle. Looks like you found a good solution though! I wouldn’t worry about the single bolt seat clamp. I’ve been using a K1 single bolt seat clamp like the one you have for a long time and I’ve never had issues, in fact I’ve found it to work a lot better than some double bolt clamps. Have fun with your new uni!
Well I know my Torker LX had a different handle but I didn’t know that a lot of other saddles had the same handle. Oh well, easy remedy.
And that’s reassuring to hear about the clamp. All it needs is some black or blue spray paint and we’re golden
