Wow. That is a very sweet looking ride. Perhaps I need to give that Dirt Wizard another chance (or up my game).

Looks awesome!
Does the involvement of LS3 mean that we will soon see a video of it?

Ya think?


(I think Jacob needs to be honored for contributing one of the best crash clips ever to the pantheon of unicycle videos. This will always be one of my favorites!)

Sure, isn't these jumps the best test of durability?

Oh. My. God. That looked terrifying. Out of curiosity, how many bones have you broken since you started unicycling?

Wow it's been a while since I checked the forums! I'm still on my Post-Unicon Muni trip. Riding hard in British-Columbia on my prototype Flansberrium frame

Thanks everyone for the super awesome comments! I'm glad everyone likes their frames and other's frames I have to stop the production for a while. I am going back to Xprezo to work. I'll be back on the Flansberrium frames eventually though! It's a project that turned out much better than expected and I'm really hoping I can still make sone riders enjoy my frames in the futur! I will be back with better skills of preparation and welding to make even nicer frames!

Huge thanks again everyone! Keep posting the pictures please!

Finally, I got a picture. Been busy with another project lately, and admittedly, haven't taken this thing on it's first ride yet.

That changes tomorrow. What better ride to break it in with than a 25 mile 4000+ ft. slog fest?

A tribute to my favorite auther Stephen King, Pennywise decals grace the frame legs along with Bango Skank on the seat tube.

I like Orange.

That looks sweet I wanna know how she rides. I have a spare shadow handle if I had known you were getting one.

Riding it is interesting. It took some time to get the pressure dialed in to get auto steering to a minimum, and even then, if you hit some off camber stuff just right you'd better hang on.

It's different though. For double track (which is what I built it for) it'll be great. For single track, I have to do some more riding on it first.
