Converting a Nimbus Trials to a Kris Holm Trials

Converting a Nimbus Trials to a Kris Holm Trials

Post by Uni Trick » Tue, 01 Apr 2008 06:53:11


Hello,
I just ordered my Nimbus Trials ISIS 20" recently on the phone. The guy
on the phone said if you upgrade the saddle and cranks its _almost_
like a Kris Holm altho i know it wont be like as good as a Kris Holm
but it will look better and be better.

Overtime I will probably do this
-upgrade to kris holm street gel saddle instead of nimbus streetgel
-upgrade to kh momens 137mm instead of the stock cranks
-upgrade the pedals to snafu or the other ones (i forgot their name)
instead of dx alloy pedals
-paint my unicycle blue. well maybe....i dont know?...!

sounds good, upgrading the cranks is a deffinate, the kh ones are much
stronger. not sure what the nimbus seats are like but the kh ones are
good. dont know about painting it, its personal preference but if its
done right it should look awesome

I wouldn't upgrade the saddle if I were you. It's not all that much of
an upgrade, just which one you think is more comfortable.

I like KH seats for everything more than nimbus. I upgraded the seat and
cranks to KH on my nimbus. Are snafu pedals better than DX? DX look
better to me but I've never used snafu

I would go with odyssey twisted plastics for pedals. A kh frame would be
good too for tech street.

Yer Oddeysey pedals is what i wa thinking of. on the topic of pedals,
ive found out that the dx alloy pedals are thin and the snafu
pedals...im just hoping maybe they'll be thicker but i mite stay with
the dx alloy.

Alot of ppl have opinions of the street gel saddles an think judging by
the picture and other peoples preferaces that the kh is better. the
picture on udc of the nimbus street gel saddles just looks like a
classic saddle and its more curved which I find a bit uncomfortable
altho it has gel.

I've been trying to get some Odyssey Twisted Plastic pedals for some
time know but there are none available in Adelaide that I can find. I
have been to numerous shops and phoned just about everyone. There seems
to be a problem with supply as many shops told me they have had them on
back order for quite some time.
