Default UDC product descriptions confusing me


Basically, I want to buy a new frame for 2006 20" Qu-ax trials uni, and
don't want to fork out the money for a KH frame. I decided the Nimbus 2
will be fine for me, buuut...

'This one' (http://unicycle.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=1073) says it
will fit an ISIS wheelset down in the specs...

And 'this one' (http://unicycle.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=1076), the
same brand and model, has no real specs, but says it is made for ISIS
hubs...

I have to wonder if the colored set will work with a non-ISIS hub,
cause I really want a tacky colored frame.

Thoughts? Advice?

Man I believe that both are the same frame, only poweder coated. If
not, probably it will fit a non isis wheelset if the distance between
the bearings is the same as a KH Hub (100mm), and the bearing is 42mm.

I can't see why the frame would not fit your wheelset if your setup
have the same sizes as an ISIS!

He's not sure since he has an old qu-ax hub. It'll work. I think qu-ax
has 42mm, even older ones. Still, you can use some pop cans or an old
inner tube, both work fine. I rode a unicycle like that for months.

That's my hub, so yeah the bearings are fine. Just not sure on the
distance between them.

I guess I'll take my chances, the Nimbus frames are at least nice and
cheap. I think the bright green will go well with the black and yellow
color scheme.
