Default Yuni frame Torker or schwinn wheelset.


I was looking around on unicycle..com and i was wondering if the schwinn
or torker wheel set would fit the yuni frame without any modifications
being done.
I know you guys are going to say dont get that wheelset but i dont
have that much money to throw around right now. all i want is a decent
frame a decent seat and something to roll with.
could you guys help me out? thank you for your time. any response
would be appreciated.

If you mean 'This' (http://www.unicycle.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=338)
wheelset, it should be fine. as long as you plan to only ride around
and try some tricks. no drops at all. welll, maybe curbs. and not lots
of hopping. but otherwise it should last you awhile. the schwinn
wheelset however probably wont fit in the frame.

As previously mentioned, get the Black Torker Unistar. You get a decent
saddle, a nice frame, and a 48 spoke alloy rim for a good
price!!!!!!!!!!!

yes i heard you but the black unistar does not have a square fork which
i one of the reasons i like the yuni frame. i would have looked at the
black one more seriously but the round fork turned me off.

I have a Torker wheelset on a Yuni frame it works just fine. I also have
a toker hub in a 28" Yuni frame that I put a Sun doublewide rim and Gazz
3 x26(both from ebay) that I use for light muni, I love it. When you are
on a budget you do what you can to keep riding.

A Torker wheel set for a budget uni is fine if you don't stress it. I
replaced an old warped cottered wheel set with a torker wheel set on an
old garage sale uni frame and have only bent cranks. Fortunately I
stopped doing drops on the torker after I got a Summit Trials.

If you're considering a Schwinn wheelset double check the bearing
diameter, it may not be compatible.
