Smile Post Your Current Projects Here

Saw a thread like this a few days ago while browsing another forum. The idea was to post what you were currently working on, whether it be restoring a old uni or designing a completely new one from new parts.

So post your new projects here and show us what you are working on!

I've got a few things in the slow cooker. Don't like to say much until I know if it works.

here are some hints though:
refinements on project 32
überfat
chainrotor
rafter
future 48

I've started on my latest project/ christmas present to myself. Its a super light weight G26er for all mountain/enduro xc unicycling.

Parts list:
1) KH/Schlumpf hub
2) machined/drilled 137mm moment cranks
3) QX series 26" Alu frame
4) QX series carbon seatpost
5) KH 26" freeride rim
6) Impact Knockout pedals
7) CF seat base
8) KH slim foam/cover- no bumpers
9) Custom designed Aluminium 2 prong handle- bolt onto 4 bolt pattern of front of CF base (similar to GB4 but with longer, straight fork arms)
10) Brycer sourced Magura frankenbrake.
11) Maxxis ardent 2.4 folding bead tyre- tubeless.

I wanted to get a disc brake operating for this build but I could not put it off any longer. It seems as thought the KH and mountain uni systems won't be online until well into next year and I want the set up ready to go for all the races I have planned next year (and so I can get it all dialled in for UNICON XVI.)

I'll post pics once its all together- Should hopefully be ready to go by Feb next year!

Mark

...as if your Muni needed to look more badass sask!
You could drill that chain rotor pretty aggressively if you wanted to up the ante even more.

I need to make the chainring a bit thinner, just not enough clearance with the brakes I have. I can get it to spin cleanly when unloaded but am getting too much rub for my likes when riding.

It's not on my list but I think next up will be "Mr. Big and Tall"
