  • Eric,
    You are taking two seats? I can understand two tubes... What was your thinking about the seats?
    Have a good time.

      • After months of reading through this forum, I finally better understand what all the hoopla is about with the 36 inch unicycle. One arrived for me yesterday and, after sitting on it and slowly rocking for quite a while last night, I took it out for a test ride this afternoon. It certainly is a different experience!

        I need to get a picture together. But until then, thanks for all the words of guidance and encouragement given on this forum. I wouldn't be to this point without it!

        • Cool! Welcome to the world of 36-inch unicycling!

          • I don't have one of these, but UDC just came out with them. Thoughts?

              Seat adjustable? Looks like the handle tube support bolts to the seat in front and the tube welds to frame. It must be adjustable but from that angle it doesn't even look like there is a seat tube.

                Looks like the fork legs might be adjustable?

                  Yes they are. The idea is so that shorter people can ride it without cutting down the frame.

                    Possible negative: no brake option. You could probably use the "d-brake" bearing cap mount for a disc brake, but there's no mention in the description. To me, a brake is real useful on a 36r.

                    I guess it makes the large wheel more accessible to the shorter rider, but I'm not sure how much of an issue that's been in the past. Personally, I would rather see some development effort put into a 32" wheel uni. But that's just me.

                      And taller people can accommodate larger and larger wheels. Gotta keep the short people wanting.
                      I'm different, yeah I'm different. I'm different, yeah I'm different. Pull up to the scene and my wheel is missing. Pull up to the scene and my wheel is missing.

                          Frame strength is the biggest concern I have on this uni as well Not only are the legs a worry, welding a shadow mount on the crown seems like a bad idea. But these things are pretty much untested so who knows...

                            Yeah, the D-brake and Spirit's would work fine.

                            Also worth noting that it comes with an ISIS hub, so the uni has to be geared towards fairly heavy riding.

                            I'd bet that the shadow base on this particular frame is slotted for seat adjustment.

                            They also mention raising the frame up and storing gear in a 'unique' place. That's an intriguing idea and I'd like to see it.

                                Don't worry about frame strength. I have been making one-off versions of these for years (over 10!) and they are more rigid and stronger than a standard frame. The version with the handle interface built in is the most rigid again... way more rigid than any other 36" frame! yes heavier, but not by much with the aluminium lower legs.
