Rounded
Pros:
  1. Stronger and more robust design
  2. No corners to hit your knees or inner thighs on during SIF
  3. The design supports the philosophy of simplicity inherent in unicycling.
Cons:
  1. Foot on crown tricks may be more difficult
  2. Some may argue aesthetics though I think they are cool in a rebellious way - reject the norms, woo!
Flat Crown/Nimbus II style
Pros:
  1. Solid surface to place foot during foot on crown tricks
  2. Aesthetics - though this is is totally personal opinion the majority might agree
Cons:
  1. Inherently weaker design (who really even breaks these besides Cody anyway though?)
  2. Strong potential for personal injury during SIF riding or unispin type tricks when pedals are missed.
Please fill in anything I've missed or debate any points I've made.

another problem with the nimbus 2 style (and only the nimbus 2 style) is that with flip tricks its really easy to rip the bottoms of your pant legs. happened to me many many times.

No I am having my b*ke guy do it for me. I dont even know how to lace rims and I dont want to spend the time that way when I could be uni-ing.


Its just to match the yellow everything else.

My legs rubbing against the frame pretty much rubbed the decals off, I wanted to paint it, but knew that would rub off too eventually, so out came the tape. I kinda like the two tone look too, I'll have to think of a more stylish way to do it when the tape wears off.
