    Hi
    I live in Israel and I have purchased a Nibus Oregon disc hub, Nimbus D-brake, Kris Holm sym 130 cranks and Avid Elixer XO trail brakes to upgrade my UDC TItan just to fined out that the D-brake won't fit my frame and the 12G spokes wont fit the hub.
    considering i cant send it all back and i dont want another 36er, what are my options?

    When you flatten the seat, the distance between the holes decrease, so you need to do some creative whittling/dremel work to make it fit. If you don, the force of claming the seat back onto the post will cause it to recurve.

    Question on ghetto flat seats: Do you have to boil and clamp them with a seat post attached to maintain the curvature of the 4 hole post interface?

    Most people ride 150's, I have run as long as 175, but have settled on 150's as well. LOng cranks are great for power and balance, so a new rider might feel more comfortable using a 165, but a long crank does throw off your balance more and it is more work to push a big cranks. Cranks are cheap, get some 150's and try them.

    Nurse Ben, I was wondering about crank sizes. I'm new to the sport and just bought a Nimbus 26 MUni. I'm about 2 months into it riding a unicycle and the 165 cranks that come on it seem long. I noticed you had a had full of cranks in a post while I was researching drilling mine out to add a shorter length. What would you recommend on a 26?

    Also, I hope there is a 2014 MUnifest in Ashville. I would love to attend.

    Let me get back to you when I return from vacation at the end of the week, we can work out details then. I'll be able to post/send pics at that time.

    I'd like to buy the wheel you are posting: 36" Complete Wheel: Dominator 2 rim, Oregon hub, Todd tire, tubeless!

    I have a Coker Big One. I've never priced a rebuilt wheel before so I'm unclear about what a fair price is. I would be willing to go with whatever you deem is fair. For shipping my ZIP is 21044.
