    strong splined hub, good wheelset (rim/cranks/hub) tho the cranks are
    nice and heavy.
    the best beginners trials unicycle (tho i have now broken (in this
    order) : pedals, saddle, frame, saddle)
    dont let the fact that i have broken it discourage you, as I have been
    unicycling for just over 5 months and ride heavy trials on it.
    much better choise that the nimbus trials (imho) as I would have also
    broken the hub/cranks if i had bought one of those.
    Personally I would choose the qu-ax (splined) over this unicycle as the
    frame on the qu-ax is hell strong compared to nimbus.

  5. Got the '06 24" DX. No complaints here. Very strong and reliable. You
    can't beat the price for a splined hub/crank uni with the alex rim. No
    crank options is the only negative I can think of. :)

    Yup, that thar's a good un.

    The only problems I can think of is the evil ankle biting cranks (but
    that's just me) and the seat is a little large (that's just me, too.)
    It's a great unicycle and it has held up perfectly. Looks sweet, too.

    im gonna order one of these bad boys. but i know i want a 20 inch but im
    thinking i may want to use a 24 every now and then, so should i just
    get the 24 inch and an extra 20 inch rim and tire and hub and stuff so
    i can switch so i have both?

    Yeah, it has the Alex DX32 rim.

    My DX has held up fine, I even did a very step muni run with it last
    night, it was great, kinda whippy, but I enjoyed it very much. Mainly I
    use it for trials, and have been doing about 3 foot drops on it and
    been fine, but i aslo noticed a new clicking sound, so im gonna check
    the bearings, and see if any spokes are lose, and it will be click free
    =p

    have you done any maintenance on the hub/cranks? they need to be
    cleaned, and greased etc.

    the only problem ive had with it is it eats my shoes (the crank arms
    dont hit my ancles much but they some how they keep eating the sides of
    my converse hitops) i have like 3 pairs of hitops that are all ripped
    massivly on the sides

    but other than that its awsome

    ps.... ins nothin a little "duck tape on the shoe" wont fix

    Weird, I havnt had any ankle/shoe biting problems with mine! I guess
    I've gotten lucky.

    i have the torker dx 24" and its great. i have no problems at all with
    it. the only thing that has broken is the reflectors. pay attention
    to the nuts underneeth the saddle because i got a really nasty cut on
    one and i think i read somewhere on here that someone else had the same
    thing. Other than that its def worth getting

    My nuts are perfect.

    (haha, I had to say that)

    I just got one recently. I haven't rode it much yet, but from what I
    have seen its great! The tire handles well in the crazyness of sloppy
    roads and it is so grippy. It is also beautiful. It is a bit heavy, but
    compared to a bike, its nothing!

    I too found those nasty nuts this last weekend, need to get a pair of
    gloves, or a file

    This is my first uni, and well, as an ex avid mountian biker, the
    cranks eat my ankles good. but this has taken way more abuse then
    either of my past two mt bikes. So far it has held up to my numerous
    abusive sprawling wrecks, and is only now clicking a little while bunny
    hopping, to a huge thanks for that maintenance thread!
