Where to get ti Hardware/ kh bearing holders, seat post clamps/ seat bolts

Post by wickedbo » Sat, 22 Nov 2008 21:37:41


Being a trials weight weenie, I would like to know where I could
possibly get some ti hardware for my unicycle. Any bolt that can be
replaced, I'm interested in, even axle haha, though I don't think they
make those. Thanks for the help.

Btw, I'm not interested in ti parts like spokes and such. I'm also
using Koxx seat post clamps, a kh o8 frame, and regular kh style seats.

you're going to be more specific about exactly which parts you want to
swap, if bolts count but spokes don't it's not terribly clear. Also why
Ti? It's certainly not the lightest material out there, for a fixed
sized component like a bolt Al will be lighter.

There are 8 bolts on a unicycle - 4 on the bearing holders, 2 on the
clamp, and 2 on the cranks.

If you do replace all 6 normal bolts on the unicycle with aluminium
bolts, you'll save about 16g. You can also save 15g by changing the
crank bolts.

Although weightweenies suggests to use titanium bolts for the scary
bits - seatpost clamps etc. Which probably includes the crank bolts, but
might not matter about the bearing holders. That'd reduce your weight
savings to something more like 20g total.

It'd probably be much easier to cut some foam out of your seat for that
amount of weight loss - KH seats have tons of padding in. Also, have you
got lightweight pedals (something that takes a TI axle probably).

Or just go for a dump before you go riding / lose some weight.

In terms of axle, obviously unicycle axles are not usually removable /
replaceable, but you can get the titanium hub. Which would save you
200g. Probably on a money per gram saved basis that'd be more than the

0.6g per , whereas the hub is 225 saving 200g = 0.8g per .

Well, yes the bolts he said. I'm also going to get the ti hub, probably,
I'm coming into some money since I should be getting a job sometime
soon. So, anybody know where I can get the bolts?

Actually, if you are a true trials weight weennie, just remove the seat.
That'll save a ton of weight. Most trials riders hop seat out. You could
replace the seat with a lightweight carbon fiber handle.

In addition to the bolts that Joe pointed out there are another 10 in
the saddle.

Using a light weight tube and cutting off every second knobby can save
a surprising amount of weight.

Don't forget to strip the paint off your frame

You could probably cut down or drill a bunch of holes in the rear
bumper too.

Use a light weight tube. Don't waste your time doing any of the other
things. Using a light tube can save 200g, all those toher things put
together are unlikely to save 100g. Anyway, a few hundred grams is
really insignificant, especially for trials.

A few hundred maybe not, but 500 is a bound. It's not about taking 10g
off in one place, it's the accumulative affect of it all.
