EUREKA!!!! I finally did it! I think ive created the plans that would accomplish it! I spent nearly 2 hours drawing these up. Their pretty sketchy... But it gets the point across, the 2 pictures are supposed to be connected to eachother where it says, like overlapped. And all berrings in the picture would have berring housings on them, from a unicycle frame or otherwise, so i wouldnt damage the berrings by welding on them, well, here it is!

I was thinking this the same day you posted your idea. Thats weird.

Anyways, ill probably buy a cheap nimbus muni frame and see what I can do.

Anyone know of some good shocks that are small but can be pretty stiff?
