Is that the same gearing system the Shlumpf uses?

Thats alot higher.

( If I recall, Schlumpf uses 1:1.5, wich is 1 and a half times the size of the wheel. His hub, on the other hand,1:2.5, is 2 and a half times the wheel size, in high gear.)

Brilliant! That must go sooooo fast.

Same general concept (planetary/epicyclic gearing)




I still have the picture of my smashed 36 on my phone but I would be damed if I could figure out how to get it on my computer.


Other than the smashed 36 I have fairly standard broken parts. I have broken/bent a few sets of square taper cranks, some seatposts, spokes and tacoed a few crappy wheels. I have also bent one and snapped one axle on my 20 minutes of BC riding.

Broken parts.

Thus far I have not broken a single part on any of my three unicycles.

After over 2000km on my bedford 29", 1500km on Nimbus 36" and maybe 200 km on 20" I must be doing something right. Worn out a couple tires and replaced bad pedales. But thats it.

Perhaps my riding is more sedate too. Oh well. You guys really push the envelope on this equipment.

Yah, but they bend really easily which then gives your seat more room to flex and break. Either way you look at it unicyle parts are to weak. People like me shouldn't be breaking all these parts.
