Dirt Uni

Hello all,

Just added a third uni to my stable and I'm thrilled to have it. Always thought the downhill unis were very cool, but slightly crazy...when this one popped up I knew I had to have it. Seller included an extra set of legs with a Magura rim brake mounted....looking forward to trying a brake for the first time. Profile hub and cranks look like they should last forever.
I did a bit of digging and it looks like it was built by Eugene Cathcart. Wondering if he's still building?

I'm not familiar with that name or model, it may be a one-off. The bearing holders look like the ones on the old Columbia unicycles from the 70s, but different fork legs. Profile crankset, which started out in 2002. Also you have a Nokian Gazaloddi tire, which is no longer made. Those were really popular, and the original "fat tire" for MUni back in the day.

Titanium?

There was a pretty pristine example of a Dirt Uni for sale a while back. Are all of them titanium?

John, from what I've dug up, it looks like Eugene built a few. It has a "Normal Cycles Unicycles That Shred" decal on it.
I'm thinking it's 2004 ish. I remember the big Nokian from back then...hadn't seen one in a while...wish they still made them.


Moron, that Ti uni is awesome...wish I had seen it while it was available.
This one is steel and burly.

Dirt Uni

I have a virtual twin of that Muni, which I've been riding hard for years. Major difference is the 170 mm 8 spline KH cranks on mine. I occasionally worry that the aluminum crown will crack, but its shown no sign of giving up. Nice ride.
