Smile Post Your Current Projects Here

Saw a thread like this a few days ago while browsing another forum. The idea was to post what you were currently working on, whether it be restoring a old uni or designing a completely new one from new parts.

So post your new projects here and show us what you are working on!

I've got a few things in the slow cooker. Don't like to say much until I know if it works.

here are some hints though:
refinements on project 32
überfat
chainrotor
rafter
future 48

I've started on my latest project/ christmas present to myself. Its a super light weight G26er for all mountain/enduro xc unicycling.

Parts list:
1) KH/Schlumpf hub
2) machined/drilled 137mm moment cranks
3) QX series 26" Alu frame
4) QX series carbon seatpost
5) KH 26" freeride rim
6) Impact Knockout pedals
7) CF seat base
8) KH slim foam/cover- no bumpers
9) Custom designed Aluminium 2 prong handle- bolt onto 4 bolt pattern of front of CF base (similar to GB4 but with longer, straight fork arms)
10) Brycer sourced Magura frankenbrake.
11) Maxxis ardent 2.4 folding bead tyre- tubeless.

I wanted to get a disc brake operating for this build but I could not put it off any longer. It seems as thought the KH and mountain uni systems won't be online until well into next year and I want the set up ready to go for all the races I have planned next year (and so I can get it all dialled in for UNICON XVI.)

I'll post pics once its all together- Should hopefully be ready to go by Feb next year!

Mark

Painted titan

I painted my once chrome udc Titan 36er to an army greenish color. Stoked how it came out especially since a lot of reading I did said reprinting chrome was really complicated. I just sanded the crap out of it and used a self etching primer spray paint and clear coat! Hopefully it will hold up!

Interesting look. Would even look better with a black seatpost.

few grams makes the difference on road riding but not because of the dead weight but inertial one due to rotating mass

It is easier to notice the difference with carbon rim in road riding and they stiff, very

Not a ridable unicycle but mounting the frames I have collected so I can display them. A few more not pictured here.
