    Do you intend using for road riding?

      When in top gear the 32" will become an effective 48" approx, which is enough for me.
      You're welcome!

      UDC already carries the tires. http://www.unicycle.com/unicycle-har...inch-tire.html

      You're right, with 150 cranks, in 1:1, I can ride over almost any hill, and can keep up with a "casual" bicycle rider when I'm in overdrive.

      Cheers!

        • Okay, so the release date answers my question about when, but I am still confused about what is changing...and yes, I read all the recent posts, but I'd like to see it in print as the announcement did not say a whole lot other than "wider axle".

          Will there be a crank stop?
          How will the hub rotation be controlled? (torque bar or knurled bearing)
          Any change in the internals?
          Will there be a disc mount or will the hub be "approved" for disc brake use?
          Anything else?

          I'm buiding a Surly 24" muni, 4" Ground Control tire, 50mm rim, Spirits, KH Flat seat, SRAM Guide brake, custom grab handle. It's gonna be my gravel grinder and all around shred mobile

            Seems like you missed some posts...
            ----------
            Will there be a crank stop?
            Yes
            ----------
            How will the hub rotation be controlled? (torque bar or knurled bearing)
            Non of them, to quote Kris Holm:
            The new torque support against slipping is very simple. Take a look at the inside lip of bearing housings on a KH Frame (post 2012). You will see that the bottom half of the bearing housing does not have a lip on the inside edge.
            -----------
            Any change in the internals?
            Not much, but the hub will be lighter and also narrower, providing more clearance to the frame.
            -----------
            Will there be a disc mount or will the hub be "approved" for disc brake use?
            Yes, full compatibility to EDB Standard, but no disc mount on the hub itself.
            -----------
            Anything else?
            Yes, in 2016 there will be a 125mm Version
            -----------

            My plan is QX29 Muni, Maxxis Ardent, KH rim, Shimano SLX disc brake and custom t-bar handle ... will be my xc-commuter

              • The KH frame changed, got that, but how does that reduce slippage? Also, what does that mean for non KH frame comparability?

                Anyone have pics or diagrams?

                  Ben, are you again expecting more than what has been promised?

                    Sorry, I only posted half of the quote I wanted. So here again, a quote from Kris:
                    The new torque support against slipping is very simple. Take a look at the inside lip of bearing housings on a KH Frame (post 2012). You will see that the bottom half of the bearing housing does not have a lip on the inside edge.

                    On the new geared hub, the "groove" on the inside face of the bearing will only go halfway around. So the lip on 1/2 of the bearing housing will fit into this slot and anchor the bearing, when it is clamped.

                    To fit the hub, compatible frames must not have an inside bearing housing lip on one half of the bearing housing. It doesn't have to be very precise - it could easily just be ground off. So with this minor modification I imagine the d'brake would work.
                    Bouin-Bouin made a nice sketch of this:

                        Errrm... Is no one else going to comment on that? OK, I won't

                        Still, awesome. I guess I best start looking into how I'm going to pay for a new wheel!

                          • Last thing I heared from Florian was end of February. But I also only belive it when I see it.
                            Yet, I've been waiting over a year for the hub to come. The rest of my new build is ready since months and lying under my desk, but without a wheel. And the rim is lying around at municycle.com and missing a hub.
                            So I really really hope that this will be the final release date.

                            • eric heard it from me. i live close to florian, and i talked to
                              him, because we will visit his little factory in may ar our muni weekend (as always).
                              i told me that at the moment a very well known munirider (guess who) is testing the new generation, and they are ready at the end of february.
                              believe it or not.

                              • Maybe Florian should call it the 2016 model. Releasing a 2015 model in 2016 doesn't look quite right...
