HI! My name is Nate, from SW Arkansas

And, I have several children, and I told them that if they learned to ride Unicycles, that I'd buy them one! Well, I am currently in hole on that one! We have one pretty good one, but it now has stripped threads on the ends of the axle. And, I need about 2 or 3 more Unicycles! I have 4 riders. And, I have need of repairing this one, by replacing it's axle. We bought a cheap one, 18" $45.00 off ebay. Well, the tire has 2 worn spots, from so many free starts.
We are sure having fun.
I never thought I'd have kids, that can ride these things!!

It's great!

Nate

Welcome Nate,

SW Arkansas has been identified as a part of the USA that has a serious deficit of unicyclers.

We are her to proselytize, recruit, and encourage unicycling. We apologize for the failure of our Arkansas recruiter to accomplish much in your area. He has been terminated, and we were wondering if you'd like to recruit for us there (no pay or status).

You seem to have a knack for it.

Check out our Trading Post for a used uni:

[QUOTE=BillyTheMountain;1597798]Welcome Nate,

SW Arkansas has been identified as a part of the USA that has a serious deficit of unicyclers. Agreed. And still fewer that know anything about them. Bike shops included

We are her to proselytize, recruit, and encourage unicycling. We apologize for the failure of our Arkansas recruiter to accomplish much in your area. He has been terminated, and we were wondering if you'd like to recruit for us there (no pay or status). Too late. Already am. The kids plan to ride in the Fall parade, at the beginning of the County Fair.

You seem to have a knack for it. If I do, or don't, a good public rider will accomplish alot.

Check out our Trading Post for a used uni: Already did. Good Used Uni. Yeah. Arkansas is short on that. So, we will have to ship it here! And, for newbies, that is a challenge. We are leaning towards buying several Torker LX's and see how that pans out! Thanks for the reply!

Torker LX's are a good option. I moved out of the other corner of Arkansas a year or so ago and it made a severe dent in the unicycling population there, so I guess you can be the replacement.

That's funny. There is quite a vacuum of uni's here! A local dentist has a daughter that rides..... sort of. She says she thinks hers is too big, and she has been trying for a while. She can ride, but it is a delicate thing. She is about 5' tall, if you put cardboard in her shoes! Very nice person though. We hope to incorporate her into our local uni gang! She is an adult. I think we can help her. I have been reading on the internet now for about 3 wks, to help my uni riders win. ~ Nate

A few years back several riders converged on a fishing village near Mena, AR. We rented some of the cabins there just after off-season rates kicked in. We had riders from Texas, Oklahoma, Tenn. and Kansas.

We had a blast. Good trails. Maybe we can get that set up again.

That would be wonderful! My bunch is learning on dirt, ruts, and roots, and this means that every trip to town, they ride around the grocery store parking lot (To try out a smooth surface). Folks around here have not seen this. People stop and look, and even video! I have no idea where such a vid might show up!
