Hey guys, I just joined the site and thought I'd introduce myself here.
Hopefully I'm doing it in the right place!

Any how, I've been and avid muni rider ever since I was eight years old
starting off with my little 20" beginner unicycle that I put a knobie
on. Over the years, I have felt that I have gottan pretty good at trail
riding around my area. Just up the street there are endless trails of
riding!:D

Right now, I've got three unicycles. My old begginer 20" which I never
ride any more, a 26" cheapy Sun unicycle with a Torker LX air seat that
I bought so I could go touring with. It's nothing fancy by any means,
but works all right for what I do. Now with my baby, a custom built KH
24" with a Magura hydralic brake. I plan to get a stronger hub for it,
but I'm not real big on going off jumps so I've never really had any
problem for it. A KH fusion air seat is on the list too.

Any how, thought I'd show her off if you all are interested!:)

Yeah that's unusual to see a KH MUni with square taper hubs! I'd also
spring for the moment hub/crank set. Not sure though if the bearing
holders will fit but it should.

wow, your steel frame is in immaculate condition! As far as stronger
hubs I'd recommend the new KH '07 moment hub and cranks.

get the kh freeride seat, not an air seat. they are more comfy and don't
get flats in my opinion.

yeah, a moment hub/ cranks would be good too.

Welcome to the forums!

Thanks guys.

I'm thinking about the Kris Holm/Onza Trials/Muni hub on unicycle.com
(http://www.unicycle.com/Shopping/shopexd.asp?id=845). I've found the
Torker LX Air saddle to be real comfortable, so I think I may try the
new KH air saddle. If only they made an addapter plate that would work
with the KH seat post as the bolt pattern for the two seats are
different.:mad:

Thanks!

Yup, in Kirkland washington. Have you been to the St. Edwards area? A
few years ago when there was snow on the ground, there was a group of
unicyclists passing through the trails and wondered if you guys ever
ride up in that area.

I've always wondered, is Kris Holm himself a member of the board here?

there is no reason to get the KH/Onza hub.

the KH moment is stronger, cheaper, and isis.

Thanks for the info on the KH Moment hub. I didn't know that it was
stronger than the Onza. When I do buy, I'll have to buy this.

Maybe they'll have it in black by then:rolleyes:

The only problem I've found with the moment hub is that the flange
"warps" and bends very easily. I believe this is due in large part to
the "cut-out" pattern; guess the only reason for that was maybe to save
some weight, but it makes it inherently weaker.:(

to color coordinate, buy this hub
http://www.unicycle.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=1071 It's really the
same as the '07 moments, and put the moment cranks on it
http://www.unicycle.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=956

there, keep the black motif
