Pretty difficult to ride but shifting is easy when you already stand on the buttons

I had a nice long ride with the KH36 today and took a couple of pictures with my phone. The weather was not really great for taking pictures but I think I got some good shots of my geared monster anyways:

The last one looked much better before uploading. The quality got much worse through the file size shrinking.

How fast does a geared 36" go in high gear?

Until now my top speed on the geared 36" has been 41km/h but others have reported slightly higher speeds (I forgot the exact numbers).

Put a hookworm on my Surly guni, its great for crusin' on the roads but poor for anything involving hoping and droping. I was out riding and someone form the school paper took a few pictures, ended up getting on the front page!

Looks like hopping is just fine. I'd be glad if I could hop anywhere near that high.

ha, well before jumping off the table I tried to hop up onto the bench, that dident go so well, So I had to come back the next day side hop the whole table on my trials uni.

The Hookworm likes to be at about 60 psi, and when the tire is that hard you can't get any bounce out of it (not to mention that a geared conundrum is possibly one if the heaviest unicycles you can assemble!)

Ah, I see , nice picture anyways. I assumed you'd been hopping up there too.
I bought a hookworm too which I'm trying to sell. I just don't like changing tires for different conditions so I rather put something serious on in the first place.

While I'm here I might as well post my other geared KH. It is currently hubless... I also stripped the frame and the cranks will probably be changed to Nimbus Ventures. I also got a Gazzaloddi 2.6" that I'm going to check out. Looking forward to reassembling this dream of a muni.

Geared Giraffe

You lucky bastards with your schlumpf cokers...

Here's a recent video I made with a custom built geared giraffe by Skippy (and it's for sale). I think you rode it before, James.
