That's what i often think when I hear or read comments on mountain unicycling like "you need balls to do that" ... no you don't ... it must be much easier without (I never tried, but i think so)

Jugglers love ball jokes as much as unicyclists love queries regarding the whereabouts of the other wheel.

I have my testes with me at all times. It's like they're a part of me.
Without my nuts, my saddle, and wheelset would fall off.
I usually only carry balls when I ride if I'm going to be juggling, which isn't all that often.

Yeah if you are juggling then I'd suggest a curved saddle as being a better choice.
That said, at least one person was playing uni hockey with a Zero at the last UNICON.

One question for the 26+ size:
Is the surly knard, the only 26x3?
Will a 27.5+ rim/tire fit the new kh26 frame?
I've noticed some new products in the 27.5+ format, maybe more than with 26+

A 27.5+ setup would fit well in the KH29 frame.

Note that these tires approximately bump the wheelset up a size - the 26+ overall diameter (e.g. the 2015 KH26 with the Knard) is about the size of a 27.5" wheelset with a "normal" size tire, and a 27.5 setup would be pretty close to a standard 29er wheelset.

Kris, great products as always. How different is the new Fusion Freeride saddle compared to the old one? Thanks.

Is the new tire on KH29 good for long distance road touring?

Hi lars9

I've copied and pasted this from Mr Holm's website.


That tyre looks pretty neat. Wouldn't mind one myself

I've never ridden a Knard, but I can't imagine a tyre that massive being that good for road riding!

you'd be surprised. The knard is pretty light for how big it is. Smooth is fast

Aw
Sorry about that then . Piece Maker I thought those bobbly knobbly things on the tyre didn't look that big.

Not meaning to stir up, but if you were doing long distance tours lars9 how about a bigger wheel ?
