I've seen a couple of them too, but I do think it's a very good idea to collect all those pictures in one thread. That way people can get inspired a little more quickly than otherwise.

So my T7 snapped today, and I don't think I'll be getting another one before Roger improves the design once more. I think he should at least put them on sale now because of all the major flaws they have. Offering a free reinforcement would be even better though. Instead he keeps selling them as if there was nothing wrong with them. As a matter of fact,

- They are all crooked,
- they all break at the same spot (mine lasted for about 7 months of light use) and
- the bottle cage mounts come loose after the first couple of kilometers.
- The powdercoating sucks too, by the way. And
- it is too heavy.

To sell that piece of crap for 70$/50€ as the most useful addition to touring unicycles without any warning is quite impertinent IMHO. The text "It has been developed over 1000s of miles of riding" even misleads people to believe it would actually last for 1000s of km... Well, unfortunately it doesn't. This might sound as if the T7 was all bad which it isn't. It's just very faulty the way it is made now. Without all the problems mentioned above it would definitely be the cat's ass.

I really wish Kris Holm would come up with a straight aluminum handle that offers some sort of adjustability. Maybe with a possibility to put aerobarish things on too. It would be a great addition to his KH36s... Putting a T7 on those is a shame anyways because the colors don't match. While I'm at it, it should be either black or silver, not blue, so it would work with any frame color you choose...

I hear ya, bro
It's not a horrible design, but they're underbuilt, overpriced and poorly fabbed. It's made like an entry-level touring product, and should be priced as such. It's not hard to design a better handle for mass production. I'm not saying they should cease to exist, but fab it better and sell it for $30, come out with a stronger, lighter design to fit the current price point.

This is one way to strengthen an existing rail adaptor or T-7, but the time to cut and weld the six plate steel gussets was a real pain and makes fitting the seat post and seat more difficult. That said, it makes has made the rail adaptor much stiffer than the stock adaptor.
