Default crank problems


hello fellow unicyclist i have been unicycling for about 5 days and I'm
really good at it fall about once about every 14kms.... okay sorry for
bragging I'm just happy about it anyways my cranks keep get lose once
in a while about every 4kms i bet this is a problem with most
unicyclist just maybe not as frequent as mine but i don't want anything
periment or buying new cranks but if i have to guess i could (after a
couple lawn mowinges ) any tips or advice please tell me i always
got a ratchet with a 9/16 anyways.

Default crank problems


Your crank nut/bolt is probably 14mm, so be careful with the non-metric
socket. Riding on loose cranks wears down the axle and crank hole, so
your problem may only be fixable with new cranks, possibly a new hub.
Also try getting the bolt tight to 30 foot-pounds or so, but it may be
too late for that to matter.

14 kilometers without a dismount after five days? Very impressive!
