ive already posted here but it deserves another

That is seriously a killer uni, it is dead set the best and I am so envious. Once you powdercoat it (read in another thread somewhere) it will look awesome.

Sweet looking ride! How do you like it over the older hub/cranks, like the KH 2006 ones? Not that I'll be buying a new uni anytime soon at all (alas :'()

Thanks, the only older style KH hub/cranks that I've ever ridden were yours Nick and I'd say these feel more solid. Being solid blocks of aluminum rather than hollow tubes of steel gives them a much better feel in my opinion. Though one advantage the old style KH cranks have is that you can use spacers between the bearings and the crank to give yourself more room to stand on the cranks for flatland tricks; this isn't possible with ISIS hubs because they are tapered. From what I've read though the new ISIS hubs/cranks are holding up better in comparison to the old KH setups - not to mention that they are lighter.

That looks so much cooler with the primo sticker than the udc badge.
Have you weighed it yet im wondering how it compares to kh with all the mods.

I'm curious about its weight as well, though unfortunately I don't have a proper scale to find out.

did you just pry off the UDC badge...did it leave a mark underneath, as in did you put a sticker over to cover it?

I want to take mine off but if there is something ugly underneath then i'll wait until i have a suitable sticker.

Anyway, very nice uni...i am slowly going to upgrade mine to something like that...once my skills and bank account improve

It looks like the sticker is slightly lower ~ 1/2" than the badge unless its just the angle of the picture

The badge just has a very very strong adhesive on the back, if you use pliers and are careful not to scratch your frame with them you can remove the badge without any markings. There is no trace of it afterwards so I'm not covering up anything with the sticker, it just looks cool in my opinion.

Ok thanks, it certainly does look cool, I will eventually put a sticker of my own on there but at least i can take away the badge now. thanks
