  • Assembling a municycle

    hi

    i am buying a Qu-Ax 24" Muni in a few months and dont know if i need any tools/incredible skill to assemble a unicycle. I am new to this as i bought my first uni already built from a friend.

    thanks for any help you can give me

    You shouldn't need to do any major assembly.

    As far as I know, you only usually have to attach the frame to the wheel, the seatpost and seat into that, and put the pedals in (pump the tyre up).

    Basic tools like allen keys and spanners are usually what you need.

              I keep my spanners in the boot of my car.

              For those across the pond, that translates to "I keep my wrenches in the trunk of my automobile."
              "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

                you will most likely need:

                4,5,6,8 mm allen keys
                10 and 14mm spanners
                pump

                Unis from UDC come with comprehensive insturctions. About the only thing you can get really wrong is putting the wheel backwards in the frame. Make sure that the pedals L/R marking is the same as on the crank you fix it to, and that your right foot ends up on the right pedal.

                  UDC also threw in a couple tools with my last order (Nimbus ISIS), so everything I needed was right in the box. Perhaps they do this when you buy a uni from them now?
