Question Street unicycle

Hey, Im making a new street unicycle. Its going to have a thin tire and 20" not 19" rim.

These are the parts i have so far:

Koxx-One 20" frame
KH saddle
CrMo Seatpost
Koxx-One splined hub with 110mm cranks

I dont know what rim to get, I'm deciding between a Oddysey 7-Ka, Alex supra J triple wall rim and a Sun black label rim.

make sure you get the new KH low-profile fusion saddle! it's so awesome!!
much thinner (if you're in to some seat out stuff) and tilted back more (without a rails bracket) for comfort :-)
I got mine from darren bedford on my new KH trials and love it!!!

haha sorry, i got caught up in my excitement!!! yeah, cutting it down is good too.

sounds like a cool uni
i can't help u w/ rims, but theres a street rider on here who uses a 20" (not a 19" trials) and loves a triple wall rim (general_dibbles i think)

Haha, your going to have the same unis as me. i have a Street uni, its 20", Odyssey SevenK-A rim, koxx hub with 110 cranks, summit frame, kh seat, snafu pedals.


i would go with teh sevenk-a rim if oyu have hte money, its 70 bucks but well worth it, its a very strong rim and also very light.

If laced well im going to gues youe legs are going to break ona drop before your rim does...so....15 feet plus, this is a beefy as shit rim, its got 7 walls in it. i mean, i suppse if oyur 250 pounts and do it to flat with no roll out and a flat tire im sure you could bust it, but it certain procautions are taken it will hold to many many years of riding
