Default Uni-engineering!


Holy cow! I just joined this list and I can't believe the ****-COOL
stuff you guys are doing!

Gearing, shifting, building your own frames, seats rolling right on the
wheel, the possibilities are ENDLESS!

Besides the incredible moves now being performed (by amazingly talented
riders) in freeriding and muni, what really intrigues me is the
discussion around the gearing for high speed, and how unicycling may be
at a crossroads.

I want to propose an idea, a principle that might help. It seems that
Q-factor is a limit for high-speed riding, even on a geared uni. What
about counterweights? Would a flat counterweight to the mass of the
pedal reduce or eliminate q-factor?

Again, I'm a newby. Has this been discussed?
