I thought this thread was about home-made uni stuff?

The entire hub is home-made to accept a disc, just like a normal ISIS bike hub. It's that simple!

Oh Yeah, Super G, Check out the suspension uni thread or CMW 2008 for many complete pictures.

If you want to make it into a touring uni, then you will want to shorten it and narrow down the handlebars - the goal there is to have a handle that won't kill you if you UPD off the front of the unicycle, but still have enough handle that you can use it to take some of the weight off of your crotch.
The thing is...I can't have stuff welded for free everyday, so I am wondering about the value or potential I have for it.
Yeah, I think I am with you on that. With it long, it is still safe because when you jump off because you are safely between the handlebars and the seat and still have room in between them. If shorter, the handlebars will trip you up--unless they are narrower and not as protruding outwards.
Now it is just a matter of trying to fab it that way (if I choose to do that).
Fabbing is half the fun.

suspension

OK this is how we start. Start with a cheap eBay GT LTS frame ($40/$50)Cut, cut, cut! Then lay it out. This is a little different than my 24" x 3" muni, I'm going to try a 26" street version. I'll post again after a little tack weld and test.

Thanks DANGERDOG, After seeing your video I can see that my little project would benifit you quite a lot. Thats a little tamer than my trail of choice (cause I live close to it) but I also made an add on unit for several friends, that clamps on the seat post of a regular uni. The comfort extends the length of time you can ride. I tried a true suspension of the wheel but you loose all sense of feel to the ground and all controll. thats why I'm sticking with the seat post.

you got me again on the picture of it titled "lost?" lol, quite an ingeniuos design, if i was still taking my engineering course i'd have stolen the idea for myself by now

i guess your fastening the frame to the hub using those because they can fit inside they frame?

Adjustable Muni Brake Mount

This mount is versatile if not a bit overkill.
