Question! If I wanted to get a new frame for my torker DX what are my
options? Could I stick a nimbus trials frame on it?

Yes, it works. I have a nimbus trials frame on my unicycle. The other
guy is right about the bearings though. you need 20X42X12 or something
to that effect. Just make sure it has the 42 thats all that matters :p

The bearings on a Torker DX are 40mm, and the holders on the Nimbus
frame are 42mm.  You might be able to purchase the bearing sleeves
(available on the UDC website) to increase the diameter, but I'm not
sure if the spacing between the bearings is the standard 100mm.
Hopefully other people here will have more knowledge on this subject.

You can use a cut pop can, it works, I've done it. Not hard to do at
all.

Ok, then with that being said... What would be a good frame to stick on
my torker? I use it for pretty grueling street riding and am looking for
something light. Any suggestions?
