You missed one part John:


$15 to $40 for a rim
$15 to $20 for the spokes and nipples
$20 to $30 for labor
Tacoing your first rim: Priceless

Ok I decided I am going to try and rebuild my wheel by using my cheapo
hub and a rim and spokes and stuff from my 20" BMX bike. Hmm this rim is
cheap! The tacoed one that is...

You'll have to be careful with spoke length. You're probably not going
to be able to use the spokes from the 20" BMX wheel unless you get
really lucky and the flange on the BMX wheel is the same height as the
flange on the unicycle hub.

ya thats what I figured. I just hope I get really lucky or I am going to
have to see how much new spokes would cost from the bike shop.

if your just going to do more drops then you should think about getting
a non-cheapo unicycle.

if you re-build your wheel on the cheap you can always practice non
destructve skills untill you mannge to afford a heavy duty unicycle.
