  • Post your 32er here

    As we have a "post your 36er here" I thought I would start a 32er thread.... here is mine:





    Frame: 2012 KH36
    Saddle: KH slim
    Handle: KH
    Wheel: Walmart 32 inch donated from a beach cruiser bike
    Brake: Schimano
    Disc: Magura
    Hub: Schlumpf
    Cranks: KH spirit 150/127

    UDC in the UK arranged for the frame to be powder coated in purple..... it looks and feels awesome!! I ended up with a spare wheel which UDC built as a fixed for me with a 48 hole nimbus hub with ISIS

        I'm so ashamed, my poor 32" has been in time out for the past few months, awaiting my next tire build

        So I guess the time has come for a 32" Frankentire build, the question is: what tire will I use?

        I'm thinking Ardent 2.4, though a Hans Dampf 2.35 would be fun

        I also considered going skinnier, maybe a 2.25 Ardent...to cut weight and make it more nimble.

        Has anyone heard rumors of a retail available 32" tire/rim as components?
        I dream of hamsters and elderberries

              AH HA, Nora has the same people in the background as a couple previous pictures. She was in the race with you. Very good indeed.

                    Nice 32" Schlumpf, Alan!

                    If both the above 32" unicycles had donated rims from Walmart bikes, how come one has 36 spokes and the other has 48? Do the front and rear wheels on these bikes have different numbers of spokes? Or have you used a fancy lacing pattern, Alan, missing some of the spoke holes in the rim?

                      Because a schlumpf is 36 hole and the rim is 48

                        yup there was no real option on the lacing as the schlumpf has 36 holes so we just skipped every 4th hole and taped it over

                        For my fixed wheel Roger had 1 48 hole nimbus hub with ISIS so we used that which looks pretty neat with the purple nipples and is a great finishing touch

                              Maybe at the end of this year....... but I still think for very long distances Fixed 36 might be better? the schlumpf is always a bit stressful to ride when tired
