No use in starting a new thread so i'll post my question here. I am getting a disc brake for my 29" muni and was considering the avid elixir 3, does anyone have experience with this brake or any say on how it would perform?

Thanks

The rim on my 26" Nimbus Oracle is 42mm wide Dominator 2, 36H, ERD 492mm. I want a road slick tire to lower urban rolling resistance. Is my rim too wide for something like the Maxxis Hookworm or Schwalbe Big Apple? I don't want the tire to pop off the rim.

Has anyone tried a Maxxis DTH 26X2.30 grooved-slick urban option?

I have had my 26" hookworm on my 65mm wide Large Marge rim. It can handle 42mm.

anyone know the max tire width that can be used on the 26" oracle?
If it has been mentioned already, sorry.

Ha, this is exactly the thread I was looking for. Rise from the ashes!

I'm looking for some measurements of 29" Oracle (disc) frame. I've noticed there are at least two or three types of these frames with different design of break mounts. And from some pictures I've seen it seems that they might be slightly different sizes as well.
#1) http://www.unicycle.com/nimbus-oracle-29-frame/
#2) https://www.unicycle.uk.com/unicycle...cle-frame.html
#3) https://www.unicycle.uk.com/unicycle...cle-frame.html

Anyway. Does anybody have #1? I'd be really happy if you could measure the vertical distance from the centre of the axle to the lowest part of the crown, the bottom of the seatpost. It doesn't have to be perfect measurement (don't bother with disassembly). I think taking the measurement from the outside between the bearing housing clamps is good enough resulting in a max error of mm or two...

I'm trying to figure out if I can fit 3" low profile tyre there. From research so far it seems it would be really close. But only measurements would confirm. I have no way of measuring before buying. Nor returning.

Thank you! :)
