      Wow! Those stairs in the background were the first real stairs I ever rode down, , on a 26x1.95 'MUni'

      Ahh the memories.

      Dear Mr The 70's:

      I grew up (gr 7-13) in North Bay in Granitteville.
      My parents still live there and I get there during the Summer at at Xmas.

      Perhaps we can hook up for a ride next time I'm there.

      There is a guy who's about 20 that contacted me for a ride, he's fun to ride with. If you need someone to ride with.

      Brian
      Happy Life Day

          I was on the front page of the St. Paul Pioneer Press on Aug. 23, along with several other TCUC people. Actually it was a half-page foldover that sort of wrapped around the front section. I did not get a whole article written about me though...

          The caption reads, " Members of the Twin Cities Unicycle Club try to stay on their bikes Friday in the parade."

          All brontosauruses are thin at one end, much MUCH
          thicker in the middle, and then thin again at the
          far end. That is the theory that I have and which
          is mine, and what it is too. - Ms. Anne Elk

                  I'd love to have someone else to ride with....that way I wouldn't be the

                  (As a matter of fact, on the way home from shopping this evening, I saw
                  someone riding a uni near my place, so I quickly got on mine, and went and
                  had a chat with him.) Now I've got 1 person, but more would be a lot of fun.

                        Don't know much about what's considered long or short, but they measure
                        ~16cm from c to c (~6.25in).
                        What's better, a long crank or a short one? (Not that I want to change
                        anything, I'm starting to get real comfortable with this uni.)

                              Tall question, I'll keep it short. For a 24" non-offroad wheel (like
                              yours seems to be judging from the pic) 160 mm is considered long.

                              Long cranks (for a 24" wheel that would mean 150+ mm) are used if you
                              need a lot of leverage, such as on a trials or MUni setup. That has to
                              be matched with a fatter tyre and stronger hub, generally speaking.

                              Short cranks (for a 24" that would mean < 125 mm) are suited for
                              distance, yes a 24" can be a quite nimble distance machine.

                              Intermediate cranks (say, 125 to 145 mm) are best for general riding
                              around, as well as for freestyle.

                              Once Mikefule the unofficial king of wheelsize and crank length
                              writeups discovers this thread, you can expect a much longer story.
