20" trials uni from unicycle.uk.com with onza tyre /monty rim unicycle.com nimbus II square shouldered frame and viscount seat. seat and dx pedals in go faster red.my normal mode of transport, my usual drinking place has a special parking place for it. shortly to get unicycle handle.

24" elcheapo taiwanese uni with aftermarket bmx platform pedals and knobly tyre and a cheap seat thats covered in gaffer tape, with spiffy spokes and a horn. this uni was a replacement for my original uni which died at the skate park, lollypop beraing holders you know, nothing but trouble. it got an offroad tyre when i ordered my new uni, this ones going to go off road til its cheap + nasty hub and rim dies and then get an ecentric kangaroo wheel.

a 5.5' giraffe that i bought from oddballs in campden (london) async single chain with viscount seat and bycycle bell with fish motif, and some realy cool reflectors that turn arround as i ride. flat pedals and bmx stunt pegs of course.
when the paint dries it'll get disc covers on the wheel with flames painted arround the edge.

You wouldn't, by chance, want to give me your spare coker would ya gilby? That would rock, I could come up with a charity like poor unicyclists and you could all donate to me and my friend Jonny D. That would be nice.

Now that is dedication! Riding your uni whilst contributing to the
group. I think I'll stick to my office chair whilst typing for the
time being

Have fun!

Right now, nothing. I do own a 26" Semcycle XL with a bent rim and a
20" Cycledesign with Sun Rhyno Lite rim that I need to put bearings on
and put back together. I have the bearings, just have to get them onto
the hub.

Nope, sorry. Right now it needs a new hub though. It's nice to have a spare Coker so that someone else can go on a ride with me.
