Re: KH, Onza, or Qu-Ax?

I have narrowed down my new trials selection between the KH Onza and the
QuAx, but im not sure which to get. The KH is right now the most
expensive at 467$, while the Onza is at a price cut from 409$ to 299$.
The QuAx is also at 299$. If money weren't an issue, which unicycle
would i get the most bang for my buck and which will last me a lifetime?
And do any of these come with warrenties of anykind?

Thanks,
Mike

ooooh, that's a -great- price for the Onza. if you have the money, I'd
definitely recommend buying that one now. I'm thinking any of those
three uni's will fit your needs....so yeah, get the Onza. the KH is
probably a little stronger, but not by much, so the Onza will definitely
suit you well.

That sucks for me. I just got the Onza and I paid all $409. If I had
known I could have waited just a two and a half weeks and pay $110 less,
I would have. Oh well. Totally get the Onza. Its hardcore! Plus, its got
the KH/Onza hub, and a KH saddle, its just a little bit heavier than the
KH Trials, but, right now, costs a ton less.

Plus, its super sexy. 'See?' (http://tinyurl.com/b6nwc)

what you should do, is tell your parents that the unicycle is on a HUGE
price cut right now and you have to buy it within the next, I donno,
week, or else it'll go back up to $500. so they'll buy it for you, but
you'll have to promise to pay them back soon.

Wait just a minute...I think the Onza that is $299 is really the
2003/2004 version, with the crappier cranks than the 2005 Onza. The new
Onza that is $409 has the KH/Onza cranks.

Specs from http://www.unicycle.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=587

- Hub/Axle: 3/4-inch splined, heat-treated steel
- Crank Arms: 140-mm CrMo splined for strength, hollow for lightweight
- Rim: Alex DX32 19-inch double-walled, 36-hole, black finish
- Spokes: 14g stainless steel
- Tire: Onza 20- x 2.5-inch
- Frame: CrMo matt black finish
- Pedals: Platform-style BMX with steel pins
- Seat Post Clamp: Large double-bolted, black finish
- Saddle: Onza brand contoured saddle with front lift handle and rear
bumper guard
- Seatpost: 27.2 mm wide

See? Nowhere does it say that it has the KH/Onza Hub so I'm thinking it
must be the older version.

Can anybody else back me up on this?

Hey, if you look closely it is in fact the Onza hub in the picture, not
the onza/KH hub. So the question now becomes how strong is the onza
04/03 hub? i have heard some good things about it, of course it is not
nearly as strong as KH/onza 2005 hub. but still might be worth it. But
it does look a lot like the KH/onza hub, the problem is they both say
onza. but if you look at the cranks they are of a diffrent design, also
i don't think there 36 spline.

haha, whoops your right... odd the crank arms look diffrent, probaly
just casue they are on the onza frame... yes, seems like false
advertising to me to... odd... i am sure they didn't mean to... mind you
at that price i might as well buy the onza unicycle instead of a new
wheel set for my old trials uni...
