KH 20" Is it worth the money?

Post by UniDudeD » Thu, 27 Dec 2007 06:25:57


I am torn between getting a new uni and not. Its alot of money to me and
im not sure how much it will improve my uni skilz. I have a 24 inch
torker dx right now and I really like trials and street. I got my 24
before I knew really what I wanted to ride. So help me out. Is it worth
the money?

Definatly worth every penny (or uh cent), you wont be dissapointed. I
Definatly think you should go for it, it is a mean trials/street
machine.

While I don't have this particular unicycle, I have two other KH
unicycles and I cannot imagine you being disappointed in the product.
I love the KH unicycles I have...high quality, good looking, and
durable.

Its not as light, you will always wish you had gone with the KH, you
will come to believe that the extra weight is holding you back and end
up forking out more money.

In comparison to the Nimbus ISIS + KH cranks in my opinion it is not.
Nimbus ISIS is the way to go unless you can find some super deal on the
KH to bring it sub $400.

KH 20" Is it worth the money?

Post by Dann » Thu, 27 Dec 2007 08:20:30

The KH over the nimbus:
-KH has a wider rim at 47mm. This makes a very big difference for tire
folding, and bounce. When I ride a dx32 rim, it feels like shit.
-KH has a quality alluminum frame. It is around 250 grams lighter than
the cromo nimbus frame. 19" KH frames are always being snatched up
quickly in the FS section for a reason. This frame kicks ass.
-KH is more expensive.

Ask yourself these questions:
Am I getting serious into unicycling?
How many hours will I spend riding compared to other expensive hobbies
out there? (Look at $5000 mountain bikes)
Will a top of the line unicycle make me more confident in myself?

If you answer yes, I would go with the KH. If you are content to not
dish out the extra cash and still enjoy riding, by all means get the
nimbus.

Happy Christmas and uni riding!

If all components are KH, the frame that you put on should have a
27.2mm compatible frame with 42mm bearings and being able to fit 19".
Older frames, such as hunters, had 40mm bearings to fit profile hubs.

KH 20" Is it worth the money?

Post by Dann » Thu, 27 Dec 2007 08:47:26

I watched your latest vid. You are running a DX24".
I rode trials for a year on a 24", with a pretty slow learning curve. I
then went all out and blew all my savings on wicked nice uni. It is
much much better at trials that the 24". I learned faster on the 20". I
think that if I had ridden a 20", I would be better now. It depends
what you want to do as a main style.

If you want to stick to the 24", that's cool. Just look at amazing
street riders like jkohse, who run 24".

For skill, you're good enough. If I see that you can barely ride, than
the KH is not for you. You're gapping stairs, doing trials lines etc,
then I would suggest it.

i disagree, i think you get used to your unis weight, the only advange
the kh has over the nimbus is the frame...if it were me id takethe
extra money that you would be spending on the frame and pick up a cf
base...much better value...and if you wanna nice frame you might as
well go all out and pick up a triton
