Any New Factory Team Members For KH This New Year?

Post by munitrialsP » Tue, 02 Sep 2008 09:38:43


I think there should be a Freerider on the KH's Team.( I was just
thinking)

ofcourse theres Kris himself but I just read he just hurt his knee
again.

Sorry to hear your out till your knee heals up Kris.(if he even reads
this lol)

It will be cool to see who gets to be on the team or if it is already
full.

Or Im mistaking he picks them whenever.

I think He needs an all arounder. Someone who can do both street,
trials and muni with a bit of freestyle too!:D

edit: but if they had to be good at one style I think he needs a trials
rider. I vote Max Schulze!

David W. is pretty good at all arounding. Good street riders are able to
adapt to other styles quite well, it's just that most of the time they
don't.

Would be awesome if he did. He deserves it. And Kris seems to like
sponsoring people from lots of different countries and he doesn't have
a NZ rider yet.

I nominate Spencer..

Isn't it funny how flatland is excluded?

I think that Kris Holm should advertise his products through all
styles, flat included.

I for one, believe that flatland has a better chance than street does.
Not by much, but flatland is something completely unique with
unicycling.  There is nothing similar.  You can't compare tricks, like
you can with street uni, and skating, and flatland is much more
impressive to non unicyclists.  Bike flatland, is closer to freestyle
uni than anything else.

If Kris Holm were to support flatland, I believe that unicycling would
get more recognition, and maybe all the styles would somehow upgrade in
popularity to non unicyclists.

If a style is supported by sponsor, that makes even more people
interested in that style.. One of the reasons why flatland isn't as
common as street and trials.  I think that flatland will attract more
outsiders into the sport, causing the sport to grow even more.  That is
why I believe that Kris Holm sponsoring Flat riders will overall bring
additional recognition to the sport.

It makes plenty of sense if you think about it.  I would have thought
by now he would have a few flatlanders riding for him.

But flatland is mainly rolls, and they do look the same to non riders.
I think Kris should just sponsor people who he will make the most money
off lol. That's what business is about.

O BTW I have found most non riders can tell the difference between a
360 and 540 unispin lol.
