Do you have a video of what it looks like when you're using the LEDs?

Ever since I got my 1st unicycle six weeks ago I've been looking forward to the day I could ride up this. Freemont Older trail in Cupertino, CA



To celebrate, after my ride I had a huuuuge gourmet cheeseburger. I've been losing weight ever since I started unicycling but... I earned it!

My Torker LX 26" ain't no muni, but it worked just fine



Not pictured: my hydro backpack, helmet and gloves. And thanks to the random hikers who took my picture

After eating, I rode over to the local park and practiced static mounts and hops for ~30 minutes. I'm spent

Good effort. Congratulations on the weight loss! I think I need to ride a bit more then.

Wow that's so far. Do the shorter cranks hurt when it comes to climbing that elevation? I'm guessing you've got 150 or 138 mm cranks right? Also, how the heck did you ride 52 miles without dismounting? You must have one iron groin haha.

One other thing stood out to me - you rode that far without handlebars? I thought 36" unicycles were always paired with handlebars... I'm new though, so you righted my misconception

Looks 110mm crank setting.

Is that a zero or a Zero One saddle?

Those look like 125s to me. Are you sure? 110 is pretty short for all that uphill, though Joe is no ordinary human. 52 miles without a dismount? Yes, that's an iron crotch! You're an inspiration, Joe! Hope to see you up at NAUCC!

Heeey, that's cheating!

And I notch up the respect for BungeeJoe by at least another 10mm.

Gran Fondo Ellensburg

This is a picture sharing thread so I'll include a recent pic from 11 June 2017 while riding the Gran Fondo Ellensburg, 91.5 miles, 8021 feet, lots of wind.

In response to a few previous questions about the Bay to Artist Point ride:
I'm using 110/127 Moments. After riding out a few muscle cramps I switched from 110 to 127 length. I continued to battle cramps (on steep down hills also) for the remander of the ride. Switched back to 110 at Glacier after the major down grades after 85 miles. Usually if you look close in the pics and videos you can see which hole the pedals are in.
In the 2010 video I completed the entire ride in 110 length.
I've never tried handle bars. Guess I don't miss what I don't need.
The saddle is a KH One. It's a long story for another thread but this is the first long ride I've tried a One saddle. Mounted it less than two weeks earlier and longest previous ride was 6 miles. No, I've never tried a Zero saddle.

bungeejoe,
Have you ever used brakes on rides like this with large elevation changes? With the shorter cranks it seems like brakes would give you a little easier time on the down hill sections.
