Thank you very much.

It was shot with a DJI Inspire2 i.c.w. an X5S cam (in 4K modus, while 6K was an option).
I did rent that, as -with all accessories- it's worth around EUR 22K.
Even the rent of it was a lot of money, but this result -and even the location- was totally unplanned, but clearly I don't regret all the effort.

I'm loving it but I mostly use it for distance road riding with hill climbing mixed in. Haven't done much proper Muni with it yet. Been keeping my next exciting carbon project under wraps, until this weekend!

MS Gong Ride - Sydney to Wollongong

So picture a beautiful ride through winding, rain forest roads

and then along the Australian coast line.

Now picture being a unicycle engulfed by a swarm of over 10,000 bicycles.

This ride has been a goal for over a year with a lot of preparation and training. It couldn't be ridden before hand as the roads were not safe, or legal, to ride a unicycle on until the event. Turned out to be not as hard as I thought, but still a challenging ride. I did the short version at 58km but I know of two other unicyclists on 36" who did the 82km version with a few more hills.

And there were a lot of hills. Down hill as well including a couple of 2km sections with -13% grades on twisting, cambered and rough roads. I thought my brakes would start to smoke.

However, passing so many bicycles UP hill was fun. Listening to their gasps and comments. Of course all I heard DOWN hill was the whoosh of them going past at 4 times my speed.

It was a beautiful ride with many wonderfully nice bike riders who gave so many positive comments I just couldn't respond to them all. Even got cheers from spectators.

Niiiice! I am kinda loyal to my oracles but the KH36 is a sexy looking beast and i will probably have to include one in the fleet one day

I am playing around with seat angle on my fusion one recently and im finding i like the nose slightly higher also. It feels flat while sitting on it but i no longer gravitate towards the front of the saddle on longer rides without a handlenar

You live in a great area for cruising around. Dutchyland quickly becomes boring. I just figured though: wouldn't it be easier if you had taken a unicycle with a road tire. Riding 58km is quite an accomplishment and such a mountainbike wheel does add more friction.
Also cool to see you didn't take a 36" for the trip, though as you say there were many climbs, which would be disadvantageous with a 36".

Thanks, there are very some nice places here, but maybe a few too many hills! I've seen photos from your country and it does not look at all boring to me, unicycle heaven. @Gockie would agree.

You are correct about the tyre. There is no road tyre available to fit the 55mm rim on the KH29. I would have needed another wheel set built and that's not worth the money. I use 117mm cranks on the 29", perhaps slightly short for these hills but good for the distance even with the drag of that tyre.

My KH36 is better suited for such a ride, but I do not yet have the skill and strength to ride those hills on a 36, or manoeuvre in the crowds. Maybe next year. I couple of people riding 36" did complete the ride, looks like using 150mm cranks which would have been tiring on the flat sections. Unicycles are such a compromise...
