Awesome! (and I'm not just saying that because I know harper is reading this thread)

It's so cool that you're able to make a unicycle like that. Have fun with it and the iterations that are sure to follow. What fun!

That was great! Thanks for sharing the process with us. Your dad is to be commended for all the work he did. It is wonderful you could spend time like that together. You got hangout time AND a Guni! Can't beat that deal! I enjoyed your video. Now one moer time.. how big is the actual wheel and what is it geared to again?

its a 26in wheel geared to 34in. it was originally geared to a 60 but that was too high.

idk it was pretty hard making one and who would buy it for the price of just the parts. my dad spent around 150 to build it but we had most of the stuff lying around the house. to build it from scratch you could just buy a coker and save some money

If I had a lathe... I would probably be building a Guni already.

I love that using a disc hub idea... very smart!

bob1993 didn't use a lathe, what do you need one for? Why not start with some off-the shelf components?

I'd rather build some custom axel than use off the shelf stuff.

I believe lots of mountain bikers use 20mm thru-axels or "Maxels"

I would take advantage of that design, but use a solid axel instead for strength obviously.

It's also nice to have a lathe for marking a circle on a cog to drill holes in if you were to use a disc hub. Though if I had the tools, I would much rather make all of my own parts... and if I had the money for those tools, I'd probably just buy a Schlumpf hub and build a Coker around it after looking at how much work it is to design and build something of that nature.

I enjoy making stuff from scratch, not just modifying off the shelf components. I was going to take Manufacturing again this semester, but the school wouldn't let me because I already have the grade 12 credit, as well as being a T/A for that class.

i didn't use a lathe. my lbs recommended it but i found a better way using a front bike wheel with a drum brake setup where i just took out the brake and slipped in some bearings and pipe
