    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?

    So would that be considered false advertisement if they were selling the
    one without the KH/ Onza hub and cranks for $299 and showed a pic of the
    new one?

    Someone should just call UDC and find out if its the rigiht year. I'd
    really like to get it on the price cut if its beter than the qu-ax
    because otherwise i would just get the qu-ax at 299

    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...
