I just want to be able to ride at least the length of the hall! Yes, I'm a newbie who already has a uni (got it about a week ago).

And if I can do it by Christmas, maybe a nice digital video camera so someone can record me do it and I can put it on the net.

Daily practice sessions and you'll be riding 50 yards in a week or so and
you'll be riding miles by Christmas no problem..

Sigh. As a second year uni student, I can say that it'll only get worse

I want a profile hub/crankset for my muni (I wish), possibly the universe series, or a CF saddle (possibly), or if not, a chance to weld a reinforcement plate for my KH saddle, so it'll stop squeaking and moving, even when I tighten the bolts.

On another note, has anyone heard the song by Tenacious D and Sum 41? Sum 41 sucks, but the song's pretty funny. I think it's called "Things I want". Jack Black's a genius .

Edit: I also wouldn't mind being able to hop 26-30" by x-mas. Just 5 more inches .... (as of today, I landed 10 21" hops in a row (seat out)

Well it seems Christmas has come early for me then, since I finally managed to ride the length of the hall at the end of the night last Tuesday!!! I don't know if the occasional slower rides in the confined 20ft space next to the fence in the garden contributed to this...

I doubt I'd get a video camera though, but I am seriously thinking about some sort of digital camera so I can take pictures today and post them on the net tomorrow.

SSHHH! Let him enjoy his victory.

Good job guy... Keep it up and soon you'll be as good as me if that is possible.



Those damn KH cranks have forced me to tack on some 661 ankle-biters to the list. I also need some new pedals and a seat post clamp. I wonder how i could go about trying to get a unicyclist.com shirt for x-mas?

Wimp! I let natural erosion take care of that; my ankles now have dents in them to keep the crank nubs out of the way...

I just want to be able to do a simple freemount by Christmas. I've been working on it for several hours now without meeting with a lot of success. I have managed to wobble off two or three times - just enough to prove that even a blind hog finds an acorn sometimes, but not enough to give much hope.

Keep at it. If you diligantly practice at least 30 minutes per night, I'd be willing to bet $50* that you'll have it by December 1st. Seriously, don't despair, you'll definitely reach that goal.


*Sorry, can't make that bet, as I don't have $50, even though I wouldn't be the one paying up.

The phrase "my two front teeth" comes to mind.
