Default What should I do about my cycle.


Ok heres the situation. I have been doing street/trials alot. I want to
start doing unispins like getting 360's unispins down pat and hopefully
someday 540's. I have a junky 20" sun frame that i broke the hub on. I
pretty much need a new wheel set.

Should i but just a wheelset or a freestyle unicycle? I want it to come
out under 150 u.s. dollars if its possible. I don;t know what to do. Any
suggestions? Kelly.

Get the splined uni from torker (cheap) or a qu-ax trial(still cheap,
but more than the torker).

Both should hold up for you.

200 is a little too high.

Learn em on your onza it will make you a stronger, better, rider. I can
do 360's and getting clos to 540'2 on my Summit and I'll bet you thats
heavier than yours.

I thought you just broke a Sun? What will a different seat do for it?
You broke the hub.

The 20" Torker LX is a good freestyle unicycle for under $150USD.
Although I can't land a 360 unispin (yet), I'm sure the LX would allow
me to without breaking.

I bought mine new-in-box on eBay and it came out to $97.97 after
shipping/handling. Can't beat that

why would u want to buy a new freestyle unicycle if you're getting into
trials and street

and nimbus trials or monty trials would serve you pretty well,
definately better hub than your sun
but, sooner or later, it'll break and you'll want splined

i'd save and get an onza or qu ax in the 300 buck range, otherwise, as
they say, buy cheap, buy twice
and if you buy 2 MORE non-splined, they'll prbly both break and you'll
be over 300 dollars in, and have to spend another 300 on a splined


so save and wait

i say ur best option would be to buy a torker dx 20" hers y

1: splined crank and hub, it aint the strongest out there but it si
still plenty strong for what you want

2: will be able to do most things u want it to wether it be street,
trials, or freestyle whatever

3: $200 0r less for the xtra $50 it is definately worth it and u will b
a happy person for a long time to come

BUT if u already have a trials uni then learn unispins and stuff on
that like they are doin it on universe 2
