Jacob leads me to this thread, I missed it before, sorry. So some comments to your discussion.
Thanks to vicuniclub for his very good statement. There are a very view manufacturer in unicycle market so we all should be happy about new ideas even if we think they lead to the wrong direction. Finaly a bad design wouldnt be on the market for a long time for sure.
Also thanks to all other comments, we post the stuff to get comments to understand better what people think and want.
I also want to answer to some maybe still open questions (even Jacob answer the most so far.
1. this products are no computer animation, they are real and will be used while Unicon.
2. Mad4one ERGAL (ALuminium) Hubs with ISIS exist and work well until some limits. We see a physical limit at 125mm Cranks, All tests we do with longer Cranks end in bending or braking after some time under High Stress. As we don't expect that a beginner will buy our products, we expect more pro riders which usually bring a lot of load on the Hub/Crank System. So this special Design with grown Diameter and less pins provide the oportunity to use 135mm Cranks on ERGAL Hubs which result in a total weight for Hub / Cranks / Bearings from arround 720 gramm.
This design is tested since arround one year now and improved by Riders like Jacob, Mark Fabian, Kristof Horvath, Joe Hodges, Krisz Kovacs, Colby Danger Thomas... so you see those test kits have not an easy live
3. The Disk Brake hub will be availiable also as CroMo ISIS Version once it is in a final status. We develop in ERGAL because it is more easy and we want to have the perfect final Design before we start also with CroMo Hubs. So you will be able to get it with default ISIS made from peace of best steel, fitting to your favourite Crank in the future.
4. To cover the needs of the race riders we need to go for a small system and so we decide to make the splined system smaller but strong and create something simmilar to the special splined Design for ERGAL Trial / Muni hubs, just much shorter. So its light, small and able to handle big impact. A pro race rider wont have a need to exchange Cranks often, he can use this system for many years without any problem. He focus on the best possible setup and we work together with some very fast riders to develop it.
5. Buying in USA? Check out mad4one.com to see all reseller, we dont have one in the US but several in Canada. Maybe that helps.
I hope I forget no answer, if I did, feel free to remember me
Also those and other custom colors will be availiable for mad4one products after Unicon.
