    they are 137's, so for some people, like me, they are.

      It has always confused me why the collective noun for several unicycles is a 'stable'. That's the thing they are renowned for not being!

        Yeah, a 29er hardly takes the beating that a trials uni does, so I'm sure crown will hold up fine. It still looks damn sexy and doesn't bruise my thighs like the original Schlumpf frame did.

        The only races so far have been Ride The Lobster in Nova Scotia (800km), and the Big Wheel Race in Coventry (10k). Both the titanium frame and the geared hub performed faultlessly on both occasions! I've some (sketchy) plans for some interesting rides, probably in 2010, but we'll have to see how things pan out

            Are there any 36" frames floating around out there? I'd love to have a look at one of those.

              This is an awesome thread

              My biggest regret is not getting a 36" Triton built up when I had the chance.

              It's not just a beautiful frame, it's the best design I've seen in a unicycle. Plenty of tyre clearance, yet also enough of foot and knee clearance, and smooth corners that don't catch. Perfect!

                Glad you like it Ken! I'd like to see more pics when you get back from your tour! best of luck with that!

                The crown on the 19" trials sized frames were designed to accomodate a tight-ish fit around the trials tyre whilst allowing for some minor buckle.

                The larger sized Tritons were made in such a way that slightly fatter tyres could be accomodated, hence the slightly larger gaps with your skinnier tyres! Anyone doing any hardcore muni on these? I'd like to see a humongous tyre on these being blasted off a steep rocky edge!

                  I have a 19 and though I love it, and how it has got me into street, for me technical muni is what I want to do. However not to be on a Triton 24 kind of tinges every muni ride I go on. I was in the process of ordering one when Dmitry pulled the plug.

                  So I now ride mostly street because I can ride this frame even though it's not really my thing.

                  I think these frames were very close to a perfect design, perfectly executed.

                      Have you ever tried a Triton?

                        No, but I've tried 4 20in different frames. I can tell you I'm not going to love any frame that much, so much so I pick a style other than the one I like most. The kh is lighter anyways, plus mine is stripped and the welds sanded down so a few more grams right there.

                          Um... you come into a custom Ti thread with pics of all these beautiful Tritons, and your bragging about sanding down the welds on your KH, hahha.

                              I did honestly get into street because I love riding this frame so much It does make me realise how stupid I was not to order a 24 and a 36 when I had the chance. To be honest, even then I'd be regretting not buying a spare of each. I really am that much of a fan of these things. Sorry.
