That would be really strong, but would make foot on frame tricks harder like a round crown frame would.

Skrobo's didn't go past the width of the neck, so would have no effect on those type of tricks.

Instead of going streight down at an angle like Kevin's or Colby's, if it sloped down like the graph of Y=1/X^2, it would leave a place for your foot.

For me foot on frame tricks doesn't really matter. I suck at them and don't think they're funny to do anyways :P So I think I might survive with a triangle like Kevin's

My nice V!Z rim decided it was abused enough during my Unicon trip, the sidewall broke yesterday, my first day home, after 45 minutes of riding. I didn't check if it was cracked or anything, my tire just poped off when I freemounted my uni.





I'll keep it and reweld it when I'll have the equipement and the skills to weld aluminum.

Bulkier and heavier... I am not sure that is correct. Nimbus make both narrower and ligher frames as a general rule compared with other makes.

Steel frames.
Nimbus II compared with Torker and Koxx One is both ligher, narrower and from our experience stronger. There is a Quax frame narrower, but only one and it is a lot heavier.

Aluminium frames.
KH20 = 685g, Nimbus Eclipse = 576g, Nimbus Equinox = 576g
KH26 = 685g, Nimbus Oracle = 602g
The Nimbus frames are the same width as the KH if not narrower. But... the Eclipse and Equinox are designed for stand up tricks and hence do catch your knees on many tricks.

Nimbus do make a heavy frame, the Nimbus street frame... which is super stiff and amazingly strong with no failures on the market as far as we know.

I will say that Nimbus do break (everything does!). Although currently doing well compared with other frames in similar conditions.

I never believed I would ever break a muni frame. It broke when I ... mounted for a wheel hop.

Yeah, I wish it broke on something cooler. At least I got it on video.

Wow, well that's definitely a manufacturing default or poor wheel maintenance!

My wheel was in pretty good shape before this just regular wear. So I'm thinking default, I'm waiting to hear if it's covered by warranty.

While it sucks to break stuff and have down time waiting for replacements... looking at the last picture, the crank, bearing cup, other spokes and remaining flange all appear to be scratched, gouged and well worked. Were you grinding rails?

If so, I think it would be a very generous manufacturer to cover this under warranty.
