without a course. I might quit trials for street.




I would love to get into trials, but like you, I haven't got a course.
I went to the B.U.C and found that I was fairly good at it, but have got
no where to practice it, although I must admit I have started to make a
course at my mates yard, where there is plenty of room for pallets,
although it is pretty bad at the moment. And I still need an actual
trials unicycle. Mountain unis are ok for bounce, but are just too damn
heavy

Hey UNI cowboys.

Will someone please explain Q-factor for me, what does that mean and
does it have some influence on trials, myself ride KH07 , standard 137
mm cranks ....

How often do you guys check your wheel for roundness, is it just a
visual spin, day by day or do you actually messaure with a gaugetool,
and how much sideplay do you accept, do you first true your wheel when
it hit your frame...

Super regards from ---- danish dynamite ------

On the Maxxis Website,

they had a creepy crawler that says it's 20"X2.5". However, it says it
doesn't fit a 20" BMX wheel. How can it fit a unicycle wheel and not a
bmx.

Also, the picture they supply is 'this,'
(https://www.shopmaxxis.com/b2c/) but it doesn't look like a CC

Because rear trials rims are 19" and wider. Front trials rims are 20"
but wider.

Link doesnt work but i found the pic. Theay are showing the front tire,
not the rear which we use.
