Savage resurrection...

Discussion in 'rec.sport.unicycling' started by Mistercookieface87, Jul 8, 2004.

  1. After my frame broke on my savage 20-inch (split up the fork where the
    bearings are attached and is no longer stable enough to attach the wheel
    and cranks) it has just been sitting in my room making me feel sad.

    I really want to get back to riding trials on a twenty inch wheel, but
    with the recent purchase of sixsixones, a 512 mb memory upgrade on my
    digital camera and various other expenses (and no summer job to back
    myself up) it is safe to say I lack the 400+ dollars it would take me to
    get the Kris Holm 20-inch trails cycle that I really desire.

    As much as I hate to admit it the summer is almost half over and I want
    to get as much unicycling as I can in while I still have full days free
    of everything.

    Before it's demise, I got a new saddle, tire, and pedals for the savage,
    so now all I need is a frame, new cranks, and eventually a new rim. No
    one sells savages anymore and I have no idea what size bearings or seat
    post came with my -lovely- unicycle. Can anyone help me out with
    specs. and suggestions for upgrading? Could I get a Kris Holm 20-inch
    frame without buying a whole new wheel set? please help!

    Yeah, Torker CX is a unicycle to be avoided. My understanding now
    (though not my doing in the past) is that the extra 20 or 30 bucks is
    worth it to get the LX.

    My brother has done quite a bit of trials on his CX, and it has held up
    pretty well. Untimately, he twisted his rim, as I did to my CX.

    The LX is prettier, and has a better saddle. If you could score a 20"
    DX, that would hold up real well for trials. The tire is .375" skinnier
    than standard trials tires, but I think it'll work for ya.

    But, since it sounds like you've blown all your money on other stuff, I
    think you should get whatever you can. Get a 20" and treat it nice, eh?

    Anything breaks if you don't know how to land a drop. Considering you're
    used to a Savage, a Torker would be an upgrade. If you could get an LX,
    that's be a real nice upgrade at that
