KH / Schlumpf Geared 24" mountain unicycling

I think you're asking if a well-built 29" wheel from a KH29 would be
weak enough to fail on a smaller drop than would break a geared hub in a
unicycle with an infinitely strong wheel... As in, -if I...

Yeah! Then I'd only ride up to there, and we could all hop in for a much
more comfortable and social 900 miles. This should be something to think
about...

Yeah, I'd love to come up some time. Pretty much as soon as I get my

Ironbutt ride and another half an...

Help! Stuck Schlumpf Shifter Button

I'll second the 150mm love. I'll third it, too... I swear by my 150s.
Though they do get in my way at times when I'm really trying to spin
fast, they make a good cruising speed so much easier (than...

Orange County, CA Charity Unicycle Ride

Yeah, I think we didn't do a full hour. Maybe more like 53 minutes. We
started at 3:45 on my phone, and finished at 4:37 or 4:38. Also, last
year I did 53 laps ungeared at right around 14mph, and...

36er, handlebars and bike seat??

I'd love to try a bike seat, but I'm just too lazy and/or overstretched
to bother trying to set up a good handlebar far out from the seat....

I know I'd want to keep the T7 though, to have both. I...

Losing air, but no puncture?

Right; I know about PV = nRT, but I wasn't sure if Air followed that
exactly, or how closely it followed it. I guess it's sufficiently close,
based on all the faith in it I now see in this thread!...

Just bought a KH36

Yeah, I did, but I do push and pull on them a lot when I ride. I think
that's why I'm so incapable of riding fast without them. It's not like I
push and pull hard; it's just that I do it all the...

I've never personally experienced this, but back a month or so ago on a

said that car tires inflated to 40 PSI on a cold...

Just bought a KH36

Hey, congrats!! I think the KH36 is the best 36er you can buy right
now... It's like a night and day difference between my KH36 and my old
Nimbus 36.

You're spot on on the tube - 29er tube is the...

Attention span.

Whats the brake pad to rim gap?

On a Nimbus 36, you'll want to keep it pretty wide. Even on my KH36, I
keep about a quarter inch between the rim and pad on each side, and
that's a stiff frame. On my nimbus, I had about 3/8 of an...
