Sorry for the individual quotes. I can't seem to get the multi-quote to work.

I once loaned someone my 26” muni. As I was about 10” shorter than them I changed the seat post for a longer one so it would fit them. A while later I got my unicycle back but forgot to alter the seat post. Fast forward to me taking my unicycle out for a ride, and the seat was too high for me. If I lowered it enough be able to barely sit on it the post went all the way down and caught on the wheel. Doh !

It doesn't work that way if you're going fast. If you're going really slow, it's not much of an issue. Keeping the laces short is a very good idea, however this will not prevent them from possibly coming lose.

As mentioned earlier, some models of 5/10 MTB shoes (not just BMX variants) have a velcro flap that goes over the laces. Those are the ones I use, though I forget the model name.

Really. I ended up staying home from Muni Weekend, but this was mainly because I would have had to miss the last day anyway; we had a pre-planned trip to Cancun. I took some great pictures of the Chichen Itza pyramid, but every time I had to turn my camera to portrait mode, I had to push up the camera with my left hand, while my right held the lens and shutter button. Ouch!

Anybody know if that's peculiar to 5.10? I'm on my second such pair, and the flap is just the ticket. The laces do get out on rare occasion, although that's impossible, so I keep them short.
