Road Unicycle Set-Up and T7 Handle Modification

I can tell you first-hand, I purposely filed no IP rights on the
V-frame. That design is open for anyone to manufacture and sell.

And the V-frame is no heavier than the overall weight of most of...

Road Unicycle Set-Up and T7 Handle Modification

Just logged on after a while away, and this thread is great! The "T"
frame has been invented as a cheaper alternative to making a "V" frame.

Design-wise, as folks have rightly pointed out, that's...

post your homemade handlebars here!

If one has longer legs, it might be possible on the V frame to set the
bar stem a bit higher for knee clearance, and have the bars angled down

Compare my "tuck" position to someone like Dustin Schaap's more vertical

2. Sell said shoes for millions of dollars:

Oh how I miss Florian Green! Maybe he and The Red Menace can roll on
down the road together some day!

As for the handles (and without voting for mine), I still think JC
takes the design cake.

home made tire anyone?

Got a question: what overall tire diameter are you shooting for?

The 36" tires actually are 36" OD when inflated. Do you think you'll
wind up with a 32", or some other OD?

Carbon Fiber Base Thread...

Gemcrest was based on a Miyata base I believe, but Wallis is about the
same or maybe at most just a couple mm wider in the center than a KH
(which is the narrowest center section).

Actually the Wallis cf base is slightly narrower than the Gemcrest, and
definitely flatter (a good thing!).

Another "geared" uni!

Now's the time to found a Guni Museum. Start with this thing (is it even
fixed-gear?). Imagine what will be viewed as archaic 10 years from now!
The Guni of the future will be incredible!

Excellent post, chuck! I too have always had problems with sustained
high cadences, hence my passion for the lower-cadence gunis to make
speed.

On another note, everyone should understand that a...
