I am purchasing from germany as it is the cheap for me and they also have a great range of parts.
What do all you guys think of the parts? i am not intending to do any crazy 10ft drops probably not even 4ft for a while but i want a uni to last whilst being custom and cost effective.
Other than the Try-all pedals and the Try-all rim, I don’t agree with much of the list but thats my personal opinion. The stuff you have chosen will suit your needs quite well and for a very affordable price.
I am curious about the frame. Nothing else on your list is stock or “Plain Jane” so why buy a crap-ass frame. If you have good cranks and hub and it won’t twist, a good rim that won’t warp, a good seat that won’t flex and a post that won’t bend then your gonna break or bend a frame. I might want to beef that up a bit. Other than tha, it looks good
I’d get some spokes, personally. They make the wheel a lot stronger.
As for frames, do people often break normal, steel frames? It’s never struck me as a really important part for a unicycle, especially with a small wheel. It might not be light or pretty, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t strong.
Not that I do trials, nor do I know much about that frame.
I’d say get jimmy C pedals, but what do you want it for trials? street? Also what set up do you have now? Maybe you could just upgrade, make an even better uni. Also that’s the frame that I have and it works pretty well for me
Defo the reinforced Try-all rim or even the street rim or the 07 KH rim, but i’m guessing u want the red… so go reinforced.
The frame, get a Koxx devil frame, or if u want cheaper get a Nimbus II (cody didnt break it !)
As for pedals, get wellgo ones thats all try-all ones are and they will be cheaper.
Make sure u change the seatpost if u go for a devil frame… if ur only doing light riding get the aluminium reinforced tryall seatpost it should hold… and a crmo is very cheap anyways just weighs so much more.
oh and get the monty… well i’m saying that and never tried it…
Also check out the Koxx-one seats, i think they are better than KH ones… and alot of people agree, plus they do look really cool… i mena u could get a red and black one which would add to ur colour scheme. They are amazing for SIF…
aight, lookin for mainly streetish riding, and my choices are made on colors (bling) and price, i know the kh rim is cheaper but it isnt red, the welgo pedals may be cheaper but not red, the koxx saddle is more dollas, the frame is good, cheap and black (noy chrome) and i am not too woried about weight, post fits frame, and i cant get a clamp that size that is colored. post is crmo.
I like the idea of having the frame/ post as the weak point because they are the cheapest to replace and i feel confident they will last pretty good (i dont do any crazy shit yet).
Yer i am spendin a bit on the rim but it is ultimate bling with them big holes for blu rimtape, and the fact it is red. Does anyone have serious doubts about the strength of it?
yer i am gonna get UDC (or MDC) to build the wheel with black spokes.
Looks like a good setup. The only things I’d change are the pedals, frame and the tire. Not too sure about what frame I’d get, but you can get the 2.7" Monty tire from expressivebikes.com for $50+postage (click on the picture above “BBB”, then on "Tires, Wheels & Rims)
And from MDC I’d probably get the Gusset Pedals(white)
yer well dont bother giving explainations, just tell me do this do that, it would be nice if you gave a decent argument saying that the tryall will bend (buckle) if it is gonna be too weak then please say so, and i cant find the reinforced tryall anywhere. and as for the pedals, i dont want white, i chose the only red ones they have, is there something seriously wrong with the ones i have chosen?
The pedals (to me, at least) don’t look like they have much of a platform. If you want red platform pedals (I believe they’re better for trials) you might want to find some Jimmy C’s, but they’ll probably cost AU$70-80. The ones you’ve got there will do just fine.
I’ve heard sometimes the tryall drilled rim can buckle or snap. The enforced rim can be found here, if you want it in red, you could get it powdercoated.
The frame is just rather standard, if you’re going to spend money on a custom, most people would recommend you get a different frame, maybe a KH or K1.
The 2.7" tire would have more bounce than the luna, it’s also grippier. Although I’m not sure if it would be worth the extra cost to you.
