Thumbs up Flansberrium unicycles

Hello everyone!

There are a few threads already talking about my unicycles, I've also been dealing with some riders on the forum for specific set up and different options of unis to finaly start my "production" So, I'm posting this to announce the first unicycle frames out for riding (minus my 3 protoypes )! These ones are already sold and soon to be boxed up and shipped, but I still have enough material for a few ones!

All the frames will be Schlumpf Compatible and compatible with hub or crank disk setup! I have pictured 2 26x4" fatty, and a 29er+, I also have a frame for a HUGE 26x5" tire that will be done soon. Anything is possible, I can make it fit any tire size with any hub size, and wherever you want your disk tab, you can have it!







I sell them $300 CAD each for any wheel size with a disk tab and a serial number under the frame. They are all 100% made by myself in my garage with lot of love

PM me for any questions!

Aluminum only for now, but I do want to make a Cr-Mo steel frame for me when I'll have more free time for testing. Cr-Mo frame will probably be about the same price as these aluminum ones as Steel is a little harder to work!

Jakob, I've been following your threads about welding for months, and never posted a comment. But this is so jaw dropping that you have to hear it from all of us! It's an amazing job you're doing here.
Nice touch about the serial number. Now you need a little logo that could be stamped near the bottom of the frame...

Thanks alot! I'm happy to have good comments I'm sure you're not the only one that is secretly reading about my welding!

I'm still working on a little logo, I might get some cool stickers printed for them

26 x 5?!?!

Monstrous. I, too, am interested in the feasibility of finding the guts to build up such a ride.
