The rim on this uni is not drilled and seemed to hold up ok. Would it have failed if it was drilled?
Oops, wrong thread, sorry, should be this one http://www.unicyclist.com/forums/sho...5&postcount=50

Thanks for all the advice. Whatever I do, I'll let you know.
Will be nice starting next year to be in somewhat milder weather so I can be out riding and hopefully be more comfortable riding in snow and on ice

Weather in my location is heavy rain ongoing for the next week. Yuck. Throws a wrench into regular outdoor practice.

I love snow and ice. If you have a Schwalbe Ice spiker tyre, you'll get all the grip you need.

UniMyra, that is amazing. I need get one of those tires. Of course, first thing is to learn to ride well enough to ride like that. I think the furtherest I rode, before I moved, was 40' or so, and that was in paved parking area.
Thanks for the video and info on that tire (tyre).

Interesting, but I think I'd want to keep reaching for that bar
Think my winter is going to consist of riding my rowing machine. Had some snow, then it got rained on, then turned cold. Ice everywhere.
At this time in my life, not interested to go out and try riding on that

Practice , practice, practice

Any seat time is better than no seat time. My nephew learned to ride in his hallway and basement. How, I can't imagine.

Here's a pic my son sent me of me. One of his friends sent it to him, and he sent it to me. It was my first unicycle ride in the snow 2 days ago. Why, because I had 1/2 hour to kill.

Nice picture. Congrats.
Here, it has warmed and now it is rain on top of all the ice. Hate this type of winter. Much prefer when it's winter, then just stay winter, not cold then warm and back to cold, etc.
