Broken Unicycle Parts Count

From some of the threads it seems like people destroy a lot of equipment.

So: Here is a thread to list the unicycle parts you have broken/twisted/destroyed/rendered unusable.

I don't have photos of everything I have broken so I can't post the damage on www.busteduni.com. I really like the site but I thought a text list would be interesting.

Could we make it a comprehensive list like the unicycle count thread?

1 Rider (2 years riding)

1 Snapped hub
2 Broken/split rims
2 Broken frames (1 frame, welded and re-broken twice)
2 Bent cranks
4 Punctured/ripped tubes (beyond repair)
3 Cracked tires (from cold)
2 Destroyed bearings (cracked housing + sand/gravel)
2 Plastic pedals

Total:

1 Rider(s)

1 Snapped hub
2 Broken/split rims
2 Broken frames (1 frame, welded and re-broken twice)
2 Bent cranks
4 Punctured/ripped tubes (beyond repair)
3 Cracked tires (from cold)
2 Destroyed bearings (cracked housing + sand/gravel)
2 Plastic pedals

Good Idea for a thread, however, In addition I think keeping track of the cumulative time that the abuse has been taking place over. Also, keeping the list down to irrepairable damage, so your frame counts as 1 since it was repaired once. Replacements only:

Add:

1 Rider (3 Years)

1 Hub
2 Cranks
1 Inner Tube
2 Bearings

Total:

2 Riders (5 Years)

2 Hubs
2 Rims
1 Frames
4 Cranks
5 Tubes
3 Tyres
4 Bearings
2 Pedals

Loose.

I guess the hop-free freestyle helps to not break unis! The spokes went during a kick-up mount.

2 Spokes
1 Frames
13 Cranks

that's not a bad idea, but, that would result in the end we'll have a total of like 200 years. obviously, we haven't been riding for 200 years. so I think we should take the time span out. just my opinion....

Yes, I agree, however it does serve 1 useful purpose. It tells you how long it would take you (as an average of the group) to break all the parts in the list. So at the moment, I can expect, after 20 or so years of riding to have broken what is currently listed (hopefully without the body parts included). Of course this depends on riding style, and if danger_uni was to post then the time & parts count (he's probably lost count by now) would skyrocket.

I like the idea of keeping the total years of riding.

I read somewhere that KH has worn out 11 Profile hubs. I also remember Ryan said somewhere he had destroyed 9 Profile hubs. I wonder how many other hubs they have done in?

Should sprains count in the list?

If so:
2 wrists
2 ankles
1 elbow

I think it would be neat to include a total tally of broken parts:


7 riders (< 21 years)
Total parts: 79?

6 Hubs
3 Rims
4 Spokes
1 Frames
16 Cranks
10 Tubes
5 Tyres
5 Bearings
8 Pedals
5 Seats
2 Seat posts
-
1 collar bone
1 big toe
3 wrists
3 ankles
1 elbow
