Post your 32er here

As we have a "post your 36er here" I thought I would start a 32er thread.... here is mine:





Frame: 2012 KH36
Saddle: KH slim
Handle: KH
Wheel: Walmart 32 inch donated from a beach cruiser bike
Brake: Schimano
Disc: Magura
Hub: Schlumpf
Cranks: KH spirit 150/127

UDC in the UK arranged for the frame to be powder coated in purple..... it looks and feels awesome!! I ended up with a spare wheel which UDC built as a fixed for me with a 48 hole nimbus hub with ISIS

I'm so ashamed, my poor 32" has been in time out for the past few months, awaiting my next tire build

So I guess the time has come for a 32" Frankentire build, the question is: what tire will I use?

I'm thinking Ardent 2.4, though a Hans Dampf 2.35 would be fun

I also considered going skinnier, maybe a 2.25 Ardent...to cut weight and make it more nimble.

Has anyone heard rumors of a retail available 32" tire/rim as components?

Nice 32" Schlumpf, Alan!

If both the above 32" unicycles had donated rims from Walmart bikes, how come one has 36 spokes and the other has 48? Do the front and rear wheels on these bikes have different numbers of spokes? Or have you used a fancy lacing pattern, Alan, missing some of the spoke holes in the rim?

Because a schlumpf is 36 hole and the rim is 48

yup there was no real option on the lacing as the schlumpf has 36 holes so we just skipped every 4th hole and taped it over

For my fixed wheel Roger had 1 48 hole nimbus hub with ISIS so we used that which looks pretty neat with the purple nipples and is a great finishing touch

Maybe at the end of this year....... but I still think for very long distances Fixed 36 might be better? the schlumpf is always a bit stressful to ride when tired
