Pete,

You sure know how to design a sexy thing like that, it's a pity you
live so far away because I'd sure like to try that thing sometime. I've
ridden a Schlumpf coker at Unicon and when your cranks are horizontal
you feel sort of a click and some of the energy you put in the
revolution is just gone. It feels very weird, you said there was no
crank play whatsoever, so you're saying it's a smoother ride than let's
say, a Schlumpf?
I love the handles you put on that thing, it was your Purple Haze
design that made me put handles on mine, and you keep giving me more
ideas on improving my own unicycle, keep up the good work!

Cheers,

Dustin

The hub is different than any other unicycle hub. The hub body is on
bearings and is able to rotate around the axle. In that sense the hub
is like a bicycle wheel hub that spins on an axle.

The cranks are attached to the axle. There is a jackshaft (the two
cogs above the hub). The chain from the cranks drive the jackshaft.
The second chain from the jackshaft then goes down and drives the hub.
So the hub is able to spin at a different RPM than the axle. That is
what allows for gearing. It can be geared up or down based on the size
of the cogs.

I hope that makes sense. It's hard to explain without pictures.

Very nice Pete. It's projects like this that keep the Seattle area at
the forefront of unicycle technology development.

Thanks all! Yep, I am pleased with it. A new paint job on old frame
tubes that were cut & re-welded many time can go a long way.

Drawings for my next project have begun.

PS: Happy International Harper Day!!!

That is absolutely incredible. What a sexy unicycle. I don't think I'd
ever stop riding it (not that I stop riding my other ones either..)

Man, that's amazing.

I bet Dave Stockton would duplicate this for anyone interested...and I'd
also bet he could do it for less than I would.

Would that be Dave Stockton from 'LiveWire Unicycles'
(http://www.livewireunicycles.com/)?
