United cranks are pretty weak. Quax lightweight cranks are stiffer, and less likely to bend. Bent cranks are a pain. I don't know why you are so hung up on the pedal threads. Steel inserts, and aluminum cranks both have a hard time when you ride backwards a lot. When the Wright Brothers put lh threads on the left side of bicycles it was because they had a nasty habit of loosening while riding. Unfortunately, unicycles go in both directions, and that makes it a bit harder to engineer a solution. You should look into all of the threads where the lock ring fell off and the steel inserts were unscrewing. Granted it has gotten better, but the root of the problem is installation and maintenance.

Here's my new little wheel. This was right after I got it a couple of weeks ago. It's a bit dirtier now

Impact Reagent, KH Flat Wheel, I took off the Onza tire it came with and swapped it for a CST Operative 2.25 (measures bigger on the KH rim).

Heads-up to anyone who recently acquired this wheelset: Today mine started making weird noises whenever I idled with both feet or shifted into reverse gear. Don't panic, just get a small piece of candle wax and rub a tiny bit of it on the places where the spokes cross over each other.

Click "Post Reply" then scroll down to the "Additional Options" section and click "Manage Attachments." From there you can choose pictures to upload from your computer. (That's supposing you aren't hosting your pictures on another site.)

Let's see it!

You can upload an attachment as someone already said. Or if you already have the picture uploaded somewhere on the net you can click the "Insert Image" icon between the quote bubble and the insert email link.

Try again, only you can see that link when you're logged in. If I logged in it would show all my pictures. Images should have link icons by them

Meh, I'd trade computer skills for better uni skills. Nothing to be worried about.

It seems way too small to be any use structurally, and it's super ugly! The short neck frames look like they don't have them, just the long neck.
