trials crank length/spoke count
What is the most common (I know, there are always a pile of exceptions to every part!) crank length on trials UNIs?
A number of years ago I lead the charge to get biketrials to use 32 spoke wheels instead of 36. Many years ago there was a reason for more ..... but now the spokes and rims are so much better, the logic was lost. So we switched opening us up to use a much larger variety of rims. Similarly, is there a good reason trials UNIs are still 36? The spokes are so short and close together, if you run a simulation you have to get into the theoretical before it makes even the smallest (and it is small!) difference. Is is like BMX bicycles using 36.....strictly history/habit?
